  • Empire / Aisling Duval
    I had a high opinion of this supposed gentleman, until I found out that he was actually a rogue working uncover for Arissa! However, I do find his tenacity and style quite intriguing!
  • Empire / Arissa Lavigny-Duval
    He has been welcomed in to our family after undertaking several high risk missions in to other Factions systems at great personal risk. We see a good future for this Commander. As long as he continues to work for us that is...
  • Alliance / Edmund Mahon
    The Alliance likes to keep itself out of the eyes of GalNet so sometimes we need a Commander who can keep a secret and get the job done. Fenris Wolf is someone we feel we can trust. So far.
  • Independant Faction / Pranav Antal
    We required a large delivery of Platinum for our manufacturing processes. Cmdr Fenris Wolf not only fulfilled his part of the contract but he did so in record time. We would certainly use his services again.
