Starkey joined the Navy in 2003 to get a taste of the world outside of England. He didn't like it very much. But despite his apathy towards other countries he enjoyed military life. nothing suited him more than a uniform he thought. After touring with them for many years without much action, he saw an opportunity for a more exciting life when the Aegis Corp sweeped his Navy Company in search of recruits. He signed on and put in a A.C.S squad. Since then he has gained considerably more combat experience. Due to complications his mobilization to Chenarussia during the crisis was delayed by a few weeks. Starkey has a very happy go lucky attitude to his current military position, and doesn't care if he is shooting the undead or native dissidents.
