How/Why you were brought aboard the U.M.S.C Retribution Prison Barge?
Poisoning (and killing) ~30 Convicts while working in the canteen using pest control poison

WIP - Will beef out the backstory when i can. But heres the very basic:

Childhood - Not important, Standard single parent upbringing on a small (4-5 Million) self-sustained colony
Teens - nothing significant, standard single parent upbringing
Early Adulthood - Worked in a factory overseeing a shop floor, married wife had a kid. Pretty standard.
Adulthood - Midlife crisis, quit his job,  moved close to his mother and aided her in her final months as she died of malignant cancer, unable to afford treatment, he gave her lots of painkillers effectively killing her.
Midlife - Fought his way into medical school, covering up mental anguish splashing out the last of his money, loosing his wife in the process keeping his Daughter. Managed to get through doing quite well and became a General Practitioner in a large surgery located in his colony.
Midlife Continued - Stress began to take its toll, seeing ill elderly people. He over-prescribed painkillers and medications to ease elderly patients, especially women of their pain (apparently). Realistically he preyed on them as easy targets killing them without raising too much suspicion as with his mother.
Conviction - Finally caught after killing (or aiding in death) to between 130 - 200 elderly patients. Pleading innocence and exclaiming he was just helping them lead to only a handful of these making it to a court. A true Prolific Serial Killer
Incarceration - Incarcerated on his home colony, he worked in the Kitchen and added pest-control poison to the food after being nick-named the 'Granny Killer' by the local inmates and killed ~30. Then transferred.

Just a note that something similar happened in the UK years back, thought it would be interesting to incorporate it into this char.

Very interesting character- I was hoping to see a few legitimate convicts on the ship who deserved to be there. You've got my approval, so I look forward to seeing how you play with the rest of the bunch.
