Background: Calux Mars was born on a mining planet covered in frost and snow, doomed to live in a hellish wasteland. His childhood was gloomy, often times stuck in his classroom of ten or in his family's dorm room with little social interaction. Cal's only family member he had extended contact with was his mother, his father and older brother being stuck in the mines for days at a time. He grew bitter to the Imperium as his mind matured more and soon was known as quite a rebel. Letting pipelines open, flooding hallways with gas; avoiding class, direct confrontation with guards and other members of the colony, and even minor sabotage. When he reached the age of 16, the mining planet was invaded by the Tau, facing no resistance as they swept across the planet. Calux saw an opportunity to join an army that would allow him to fight against the Imperium, the government that condemned him to a life of suffering. Volunteering to join the Gue'vesa, or Human Helpers, Calux instantly felt the embrace of a form of brotherhood. He met other disenfranchised members of the Imperium and connected well with the majority of the Tau, bar a few who saw themselves as superior to humans.

After joining the Tau, Calux started combat training in the early days of his seventeenth year, taking a liking to sniping and stealth given his weaker frame due to years of malnourishment and the cold temperate of his home planet. He had also contracted Frigus Pulmonem, a deadly disease for Imperial citizens that had been fixed by the Tau, when he was 16. Cal's new allegiance provided treatment for his disease and extended his life to the average one of a Tau citizen. His training was completed at 20, becoming one of the highest ranked in his class, achieving corporal. This was a huge honor, being the highest rank earned for a recruit with no combat experience. Calux won the title through sheer will and grit during his training, always going above and beyond. Yet his rebel nature still followed him and despite his rank, often times making practical jokes and pranks on his fellow recruits and sometimes higher ups.

A year after his training was completed, Calux was deployed to his own home planet as the Imperium sought to take it back from the Tau. The remote planet had provided a tactical advantage to the Tau, giving them plenty of years to fortify and convert the planet. During this deployment Cal had no Tau armor, opting for the armor and clothing of the guards on the planet to better blend in and to take the advantage. He has been fighting against his once leaders and rulers for many years, surviving where others have not, and holding the line on his homeworld.
