    A retired miner coming from a small backwater Capellan planet, Vender Stepps
    joined the Hueys in hopes of an escape from his previous lifestyle.  Sharing
    much in common with Ace, Vender had tired of his job and surroundings.  
    Taking a tutorial on BattleMech piloting, Vender prepared himself for what he
    hoped would be a life of action and excitement.  Though he scored just below
    average in his BattleMech skills exam, Vender was approved as a competent
    and licensed Mechwarrior for hire.  Setting his sights on an in-system planet,
    one hosting a large trading business, Vender liquidated his assets and began
    advertising his job skills.  Only able to purchase a small Mech with his available
    funds, Vender selected the Firestarter for its unique abilities regarding
    anti-infantry and sabotage weaponry.  Succeeding in his search for an
    employer, Vender was hired by a corporation to do its dirty work.  Meeting
    success on his first few assignments, Vender's reputation grew.  This helped
    him find further work for other large companies.  Though his job was indeed
    exciting and action-packed, Vender didn't realize the danger of his work until he
    found himself in his first Mech duel.  Vender misjudged his foe as an easy kill
    when faced by a 30 ton Urbanmech.  Receiving severe damage by a class 20
    Autocannon, Vender's Firestarter barely survived the encounter.  Failing for the
    first time in his life as a saboteur, Vender was not re-hired for the company's
    next contract.  Instead he searched for work elsewhere.  Vender soon
    discovered the open slot on Ace Leghorn's proposed team.  Joining the bunch,
    he and the others were hired for 5 very dangerous missions.  After their 5th
    mission, Vender agreed with the others that the team should be enlarged.  Now
    Vender pilots a Valkyrie.  He hopes to upgrade to a BattleMech with more
    powerful weapons.  There is no doubt he will soon change BattleMechs, given
    his seniority amongst the Huey pilots.
