Very little is known about the Space Cabby's early life, including his true name. What is known however, is that he was born some time in the early 21st Century and orphaned at a young age. He was taken in and raised by the militaristic rulers of a planet called Ghengkis VII. During his youth, the Cabby found that he had a natural affinity for flying and quickly developed skills in piloting and navigation. By the time he was an adult, he was an expert with flying nearly any make or model of interstellar ship.
In the year 2146, the Space Cabby was involved in a conflict known as the Bored Wars, where he purportedly shot down a record number of opposing fighter craft over the course of three days. The war was bloody but short, and soon after, the Space Cabby was released from active service.
Over the next decade, the Space Cabby traveled the universe working at a variety of odd jobs ranging from menial labor to mercenary soldier of fortune. During this time, he encountered scores of alien races and began to slowly establish a network of contacts across the cosmos.
In 2154, the Cabby came into possession of a space taxi that he acquired from a showroom on Rieger III. Referring to himself as an interstellar multi-Species transportation expert, the Cabby began running fares across the cosmos in cab #7433, which he affectionately referred to as his "old jalopy". Invariably, his trips would bring him into the thick of a dangerous adventure.
When not ferrying customers across the universe, the Space Cabby can usually be found loitering about any number of hack stands near the rings of Saturn.
The Space Cabby is an expert at piloting and aerial navigation. He specializes in his ability to find the quickest route to his destination regardless of traffic congestion. Throughout his career, the Space Cabby has picked up fares from dozens of alien worlds and as such, has developed knowledge of a myriad of languages and cultures.
The Space Cabby possesses the strength level of a man his age, size and weight who engages in moderate regular exercise.
The Space Cabby is untrained in hand-to-hand combat and will usually avoid any incidents where physical violence is involved.
