Lloyd Earickson was born about seven billion earth years ago, in a star system near the center of the Triangulum galaxy. He has spent most of his life working as a field agent for the Intergalactic Coalition, with a wide range of assignments across the three major galaxies and their various satellite galaxies. Most of his assignments have focused on pre-interstellar civilizations. After a blunder with an assignment in the Large Magellanic Cloud, he was reassigned to the Sol System, in this backwater corner of the Milky Way, lightyears away from anything of galactic significance. With so little to do in this rural region, he has turned to writing, letting his imagination fill in for the lack of reality.
