FOUNDER OF THE TOMMYKNOCKERS, an organization with an exceptionally rich history that reaches back to the terraforming of Mars and pulls from a nearly 5,000 year lineage of hard rock miners.
Name: Vernon Branok Fonk
Date of Birth: 1.7.2909
Place of Birth: Synthworld, Chronos System
Backstory: Vern was born to Tommyknocker parents living in the Chronos system to assist in the terraforming of Synthworld as miners.
At age eleven his parents abandoned the social turmoil of the struggling project to live nomadically aboard a modest mining ship—mining where they could, selling where they could. Ten years later they landed on Hadur II and his parents decided to take work on the planet's terraforming project, giving him the family mining vessel to seek his own life.
Fifteen years on he has risen to the Chief-Overman of the Tommyknockers. A proud boasting point for his parents. So now he sails on, making a living and living well with his fellow Tommyknockers.
