Washed out and on the Run
Jazz was once a Space Pilot Operator in the [CORE]. His 3.5 year service record shows no mention of if he enlisted or was drafted, and aside from the dishonorable discharge; it lists Second Lieutenant Foruner as no better than average as pilot and marksman. He earned his best marks in hand to hand combat, and apparently jazz flute (hence the name/call sign) . He participated in the Battle of Beylix 3, but only in a supporting capacity. The most recent notes describe his dishonorable discharge; a result of fixing an inter-platoon hand-to-hand combat tournament. Normally, this would have resulted in disciplinary action, however due to the involvement of the criminal underworld, and the resultant injuries to 6 men, and the death of another, more sever action was taken. Speculation holds that the only reason Jazz didn’t end his days in prison was that he somehow possessed information sensitive enough to sway the tribunal…However if that were true, it is unlikely he would be permitted to live, let alone live free.
