Ben was an exceptionally bright student finishing childhood education two years
earlier than expected. He entered the medical academy at the age of 15 and
finished his at age 23. It was during this time that Ben found he liked to
gamble. This vice would shape his adult life in a way B. H. never expected.
Ben had an intuitive feel for medicine. After finishing the medical academy near

men had just questioned her and she thought they were on their way to his
apartment. Ben threw some clothes into his military duffle bag, grabbed his

in the universe before the imperials or crime lords he still owed money to found
