Russel grew up in the city of Drev’starn on the planet of Bothawui. Coming from a somewhat influential family of human politicians hailing from Duro he was insulated from the world around him. All Russel knew was that his parents were important people that met with important people. Despite this Raven, Russel’s father, taught him how to fight from a young age stating that it was very important. While the other children in his inner circle were learning multiple languages and diplomacy Russel learned the art of combat. He felt foolish and ashamed for this and would isolate from his peers.
When Russel returned from the mission to Felucia, Senator Organa informed him that his network may have come across a possible lead on the death of Russel's mother.
A man named Jerel Holborn, who appeared in the underworld scene of Bothawui at around the same time the Wilcox moved from Duro to Bothawui themselves. After Leona's death Jerel quickly disappeared from the underworld scene there.
The senators agents believed it was possible that Jerel was part of the GenoHaradan, perhaps even Leona's handler.
Now his name had cropped up as part of a band of slavers known as the Iron Ring. The link was tenuous at best but it was hard to pass up a new lead. Organa's agents had a cover story prepared for Russel and a way to place him within the Iron Ring so he could get Jerse, alone and question him.
The last two weeks have been quite trying, a very unsavoury time. Now Russel may finally have his chance to question Jerel as he's managed to get assigned to part of a small delegation going to visit a supplier on Cato Neimoidia.
Jerel stares at you blankly for a moment before recognition dawns on his face. "You're Leona's boy! " he shakes his head, " You're not working for the GenoHaradan are you? She wouldn't have wanted that... Ah Drek, I'm sorry kid. Your mum was doing a job for some high up in the Empire, Vanis, no... Varta. Yeah maybe that was it. Any way she got too involved with her target and ended up finding out something big, so big she didn't finish her job. S!## hit the fan and I got wind that a contract had been taken out on her. " He shakes his head again and lets out a heavy sigh, slumping against the wall. " I sent her a warning and went to ground... been hoping around the outer rim ever since. Seems the GenoHaradan are just working for the Empire now! "
"Sorry kid, I don't know what she found out, she wouldn't discuss it over the Holonet... and as far as names go I only have Varta, like I said he was a high up in the imperial navy an Admiral... maybe it was Varce... oh and her target, I remember his name, Captain Jaedon Emerys but he's most likely dead or so deep in hiding that even the best of GenoHaradan can't find him. Best just to keep your nose out of it. Don't poke the gundark..."

Russell grew up in Newark NJ. As a young teenager he was involved in an incident with fireworks that messed up his face pretty badly (Low APP).
He graduated in 3 1/2 years and went on to Pritzker School of Medicine in Chicago studying to be a Psychiatrist (partially to help himself).
After 4 years of marriage and 2 children things just did not work out and they parted ways. Russel headed to the east coast for am opportunity with a hospital in New Hampshire. He sees his children for an extended summer and often flies out to the west coast to see the kids.
Now Russell has his own practice but sees patients at Exeter and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center medical center a few days a week as well. To keep himself even busier, he decided to start teaching classes at Romney State University, keeping busier helps him forget the kids are not around as often as he would like them to be. Having settled in Romney as the median point between all of his jobs the part-time teaching gig just made sense. Russel has been living in Romney now for 6 years and quite enjoys it.
Russell is an amateur ghost hunter and has ghost hunting equipment. He also has a great interest in Anthropology and History (Anthropology being his minor in college).
What are his aspirations? Short 1 - Find a new love interest. Short 2 - Expand his practice so he can quit both hospital jobs. Long Term Goal - Have the children move out here with him but how?
What is the worst thing he's ever done? "Look doc, I know I need to be in therapy cause I am a therapist but I don't see how this question is... Alright alright fine. Look, my marriage didn't just break up for no reason, it broke up because I was cheating on May with a woman from work. She was attracted to me, who the hell know why with a face like mine right? I just, I couldn't resist the temptation, when I got caught I denied it, hell I still deny it to this day when May brings it up. It felt so right and I don't... I don't even feel guilty about it, Pretty terrible right?"
What is the worst thing I can imagine myself doing? "Geez doc, press much? Alright, I can imagine myself killing my ex. Not that I plan on it mind you! Just that I can imagine it to you know, get the custody of the kids back".
What is the worst thing I can imagine someone else doing? "Why does it matter? Ah because I might encounter someone like that in my practice? Fair enough, probably someone who beats kids or does something sexual to kids. That gets me really heated having kids of my own".
What have I forgotten? "I don't want to... I just don't want to talk about it alright! Silence
If you are not gonna shut up about this I'll just walk out".
After his return for his next visit.
"Still harpin on that? Alright, it has to do with my scars, I tell everybody that my face got messed up with fireworks but that wasn't it. I saw something, I don;t even really remember what it was and it saw me see it. Then it turned on me and it... it... Did this". Russel points to his face. "I can't explain it and that's all I'll say about it!"
What is the worst thing that happened to Russel? Russel has had car accidents, a major divorce, separation from his kids. Still the attack is what gives him nightmares, especially the ones he tries to forget...
How did he know Ricky Thompson? Russel taught Ricky in a Psych course, abnormal psych. Ricky was Russel's favorite student, so much so that they had dinner on occasion and Russel was going to write letters of recommendation for him. Russel did what he could to help the police on the case and still contacts the Detective from time to time to see if there is any break or any way he can help out in the case.
