A relatively new startup company, PPB is a small company with big dreams. Its founder and CEO, Gumby, started from humble beginnings on Borea in the Magnus system.
Historically, Thomas Iverson Foss, aka Gumby, did his time in service of the empire as he was trying to escape his agrarian roots as a farmer and homesteader. Much like many other teenagers from this remote system, Gumby wanted to be something more than just a struggling farmer trapped on some remote rock in space. The idea of toiling over unwanted crops, ending up a gang member, or slaving away in a low wage job in some crumbling factory building, made military service and citizenship an appealing option for many.
During his time in the service he met his good friend Isaac, from Noble in the Ellis system, and together they watched each other’s backs as they defended the empire and terrorized drinking establishments across the galaxy. Gumby’s own keen piloting and navigation skills paired well with Isaac’s combat and gunnery skills and they soon became a talented advanced scouting team, the Raven Squad, with the UEE navy. Whether they were flying separate ships or co-piloting the same craft, they earned a reputation for being able to get in and out of some tight places, but each mission usually ended up in the same place, the local bar where they always enjoyed the best of the best each locale had to offer.
Having survived military service and earning their citizenship, the friends went their own separate ways as Isaac started down the path of the bounty hunter and Gumby pursued a career in exploration and trade.
Gumby started out as a merchant, using his savings from the military and borrowing enough credits to purchase his own Freelancer, he started down the path of an independent businessman. He started by living out of his ship, ferrying whatever goods he could acquire (often times of his own creation) and doing odd jobs in different systems while making connections and learning the trade.
