Born on the Exo Tela colonies, Koda was introduced to the erratic and adventurous life of a freelancer at a very early age.
He grew up working on his parent's freighter ship, hauling goods from the Exo Tela colonies to other nearby systems and a number of times even as far as Earth.
His freelancer life really kicked off, though, after his parents were murdered by pirates and his ship got destroyed.
His grandfather took him in and he spent his saving on buying a new freighter ship. Bigger, heavier and better defended, Koda's grandfather did various trade missions with that ship, both legal and dodgy.
Koda's grandfather taught him morality, but also to never be afraid to get your hands dirty.
The missions they went on were much larger and far deeper into space, going as far as the Bojari-Harkekken Conglomerate.
But this also made these missions far more difficult and dangerous.

At the age of 17, their ship got shot down by Glish raiders when they went slightly off course.
Koda's grandfather died in the crash and Koda found himself alone on a Stage 1 Metal civilisation world.
During his time there, he was trained by the natives in a form of martial arts and was temporarily mated to a tribe princess.
Though Koda longed for the stars and it wasn't long that he discovered that the evil gods many of the tribes worshipped were in fact Glish raiders that would regularly come to take slaves from the planet.
Making his way to the Glish base, he found a way to contact an EUSN science vessel and his ticket off, but not before losing the princess to the Glish raiders.
Koda still doesn't know her exact fate and to this day he goes out of his way to attack Glish ships in the hopes of finding her back.

After returning to imperial space, he used what resources his parents and grandfather left behind to get himself a small ship.
Gradually he got better and better ships and better contacts with various freelance crew workers.
Most came and went, but two stayed with him and still serve on his ship most of the time.

During the SK War, Koda's notable achievements have been the preservation of civilians when the entire galaxy underwent a great migration.
He's helped getting supplies where they're needed, when they're needed and always kept the majority out of harm's way.
In that time he also picked up two other crewmembers: Saia Ezxua, a Xzizren medical scientist with a great curiosity about space and what's "out there", and Urgl, a Ziing soldier who was decommissioned for not following his general's orders. He's now become a permanent tactical officer and weapons expert on Koda's ship.
