    Plants and animals were my thing. The intricacies of nature intrigued me and yet there was an elegant simplicity that I loved.

    6888 Ardra. Heavy gravity planet. Human-compatible atmosphere. Generally temperate climate; I’d aimed for the southern continent which had milder weather and a good mix of terrain.

    “Damn Sonez anyway.” He’d tried to keep me on his ship instead of letting me explore the planet with a team after the probe returned. Well I’d stopped his plotting before he could ruin my life.

    And I’d show everyone just what Essell Deray could do.
