Not is known much about his past, though it is known he once had a wife that he lost during an unknown incident. Due to this incident, he left his life behind including his Doctorate and joined the crew of the Southern Moana. Not too long after, the company realised his previous profession and heavily encouraged him to be the ship medic. After much hesitation, he accepted.
The other crew members have noted he seems quite anti-social, keeping to himself most of the time and remains silent.
