General Matrim Cauthron
Matrim Cauthron was born on a backwater agriculutural world near The Rim.
He and his sibblings used to go hunting all the time from age 6. It was an
Imperialy governed world that only saw ships when they came to pickup
foodstuffs or the occasional people who managed to charter a flight off
When Matrim was 16, he and one of his brothers and two friends, were hunting
in the woods a dozen or so miles outside of town. They raced through the woods
after an animal when they came upon a crash site. During the early morning,
an Imperial troop transport had crashed on the planet after being attacked by
rebels. Matrim and his friends found 9 stormtroopers alive out of an entire
company. The crash had killed all but those 9, two of them who were injured.
A rebel ship descended shortly after the discovery, and Matrim and company
helped fight them off using weapons salvaged from the crash in place of their
hunting blasters. Only one of the stormtroopers died, one of the two who was
wounded to begin with, and the officer who survived was very impressed with
When the Imperial Officer got a ship sent to pick them up, he asked Matrim,
his brother, and his friends to come back to go to Carida for military training.
Matrim and his two friends agreed, but his brother chose to stay on the world
of Gerist, where they had spent all their lives.
Matrim and his two friends, Rand and Perrin, began their training at Carida
and their hunting skills were tested to their extreme. they quickly learned
they weren't as hot as they thought they were. Matrim, who was always large
and strong, became very good at unarmed combat though. His hunting skills were
fairly good as well and after extensive training he made cannidacy for Storm
Commandos. Rand went into the Armour Corps and Perrin into infantry so the
three never saw each other again after being assigned to different training
Matrim had a fairly uneventful career as a Storm Commando at first. He wasn't
all that impressive and didn't stand out. Then word came that the world of
Gerist was decimated. A 'New Republic' attack had apparently scoured the planet
clean. This seriously warped Matrim emotionaly and mentaly. After that, he had
several commendations, and a handful of medals but as he was black ops, never
got official recognition. He was known as a ghost among spec ops teams because
he did anything and everything with ruthless effciency. He was an accomplished
martial artist by this point, and although he was not spectacular combatant he
was still an excellent assassin because of his utter ruthlessness.
The destruction of his homeworld had deadened him to the point that the only
thing keeping him going was the burning hatred for the rebels that had shattered
his life and killed his family. He showed aptitude in tactics and decided to try
for officer canidacy. he went back to an officer's school and passed the course.
He climbed through the ranks rather slowly though, until Emporer Yenetham took
notice of him and made him the commander of the Imperial Army.
