Background, Present, And future of this enigmatic Captain.
Any theories, facts, suitable anecdotes? How do you feel about him? How does he feel about you? Rather than conjuring up new things to say about the guy, I'll leave you the following previous quote of mine. Reading it isn't necessary, but perhaps entertaining. The most important thing is your responses to the topic. "...he's been an annoying little BLEEEEP
But his futile attempts to kill me are so remarkably insignificant that they not only fail to serve as a motive for paying the registration after 10 years of numbing myself to his ego which is evident in his staunch refusal to respond to my hails and his unoriginal slew of insults and antagonizing namecalling (which after many years of taking them personally I've managed to let them roll right off my back), it becomes a counter-motive to maintain this relationship with this persistent figure of authority and his insatiable desire to follow me that seems to fill some void...
But then again, I think it's gotta be a little more complex than that. I mean, Capn' Hector, when observed at a more flattering angle, is quite a guy. I mean, of all your enemies, even the persistent bounty hunter, there's no comparison to this guy. The bounty hunter is a handsomely paid asassin who eventually gives up. And I'll bet the system who hired him doesn't even get their deposit back. No he laughs and sets his route to the Lethe system for one of their special lobster dinners and perhaps a synthale. But does Hector give up? Abolutely not. All he can afford is a Rapier and a few outfits, and he most likely buys his food in bulk by the ton in the cheapest system he can find(probably some crappy vacuum sealed, tasteless junk. He's also either ubiquitous or incredibly fast (how does he do that!?(fly in from the opposite system from which you came where he was previously heckling you)).
I guess now I realize that even though I can influence other characters' status with myself in various ways, there's only one way to turn Cap'n Hector around from a hostile aquaintance to a viable asset(and friend), and that is to simply pay the measly 20 dollars, and perhaps leave a tip. So now I dare some pirate or bounty hunter to attack me, for now they will have my invincible friend Cap'n Hector to deal with.
Finally, I am ready to lay rest to this hateful relationship we have. I guess you could say we had our thing..Yea, I'll miss our constant struggles, his hurtful words, and my cheapskatedness self. But now, It is time for me to take my first step into a larger world..."
Now, what's YOUR take on the guy?
