Born and raised in the frontier, Skfify began making waves in the universe at a young age as a tinkerer. Too often he would explore working appliances, taking it apart and inadvertently destroying it; but after many sad days of replacing toasters and hololenses, he began to understand technology more each day. This propelled him to the top of his class in the sciences and engineering academy, and at the age of 22 he sold his first patent design to RSI thus beginning his new career as a fleet commander and ship collector.
Skiffy continued to research and design new technologies, but his primary passion turned to his personal armada. Skiffy owns and commands a squadron of fighters, multi-crew ships, explorers, mining vessels, cargo transports, patrol vessels, gunships, bombers, info runners, yachts, and racers. He also remains on the leading edge of experimental ship tech as he is rumored to have been spotted in Vanduul fighters from time to time.
