"So who the hell is Andrea Skye?" you ask?
Well, let me tell you.
My childhood was average, I grew up on New Caldari IV, my Father was a Trader who spent alot of time away from home, my Mother was a teacher in a local nursery. We lived comfortably, but I was never really happy, everything was just so routine and dull. My Father wanted me to carry on the family business, and I didn't have the heart to tell him that I wasn't interested in the slightest.
I wanted to fly spaceships, I wanted to feel the adrenaline rush of combat, I wanted to be more than just a boring Trader.
So the moment I turned 16, i signed up for the Academy. I never told my parents, and last I heard they assumed I fell out the Airlock on my fathers Bestower. Nice huh?
While i did well in the academy, after I learned how to fly I left almost immediately. It just wasn't for me. I hated being told what to do, and not being given a reason for it. So i set about and went down the local job office.
There were many jobs there. One in particular caught my eye "Low sec Industrial Corporation seeks Mercenaries to Protect Assets"
Sounded like my kind of job! I joined the Corporation, called Pandemic Influenza, they were based out of Rorsins and this is where i learnt the true horrors of Low sec. I kept my head down and stuck on that job for many months. I made a lot of good friends there and its where i got my very first combat experiences from.
A few months in, out of the blue, the Directors of the corp announced they would have to let everyone go as they were going to join a pirate corporation. I couldn't believe my ears! They had became the exact thing they had hired me to protect them from!
They offered if i wanted to join with them. I said No as i wasn't sure about killing for profit. Tho i did really enjoy the rush of combat so I told them I would think about it. A few weeks past and I lost contact with them. Every now and again I would hear on the news about a convey being plundered on the outskirts of empire space and I wondered whether it was my old friends from Rorsins were apart of it.
"OK, stuff it!" I thought to myself after watching Star Wars Episode XVIII: Don't the Sith Ever Give up? again. I was bored of sitting in a station with nothing to do. "I'm going to become a Pirate!"
So I Searched about and joined a Corporation called "The Python Cartel" and this was to date the best corporation Ive ever been in. It lasted for nearly a year before it slowly fell apart, but it was great while it lasted. And if you read Spectre3353s blog you will know why. I wont go into details because most of our adventures are already documented on for mentioned blog !
So once again I found myself Jobless, and without a corporation to work for. Until one day I got a message from another Pirate called Htrag who I had fought with and fought against back where The Python Cartel used to be based. And on a side note, I've always found that strange with pirates. One minute your best friends, the next your worst enemies. Its like an episode of Eastenders sometimes. (only English people will understand that!)
Anyway the message contained an invite to his corporation called The Carebear Stare. I had alot of respect for those guys from my time in The Python Cartel. So I took the job (loving the new corp so far btw!) and here I am. A pirate doing what I love. Ransoming what i can, killing what doesn't pay. And I do love it when they refuse to pay!
So, that is who Andrea Skye is. And my next posts will document the more interesting moments of my eve career. Enjoy :)
