Lance has spent the past several years scavenging, relic-hunting, procuring rare objects for those who can afford them. He possesses Doctorates in Archaeology, as well as Security Management, neither of which he actually earned. He did spend nearly a decade pursuing higher education, at the University of Bar'leth, and later Theed University (mostly for the young females, he would say).. until his unknowing benefactor's assets were frozen. Apart from xenophysiology, he retains a random smattering of knowledge from his intermittent studies, and is good at finding the answers he doesn't have. His mother, investigative journalist Ani-Skel Deckard, has recently gone missing while on assignment at the Ring of Kafrene...
Treasures: Some hunt it for the glory. Some hunt it for the challenge. Most treasure hunters do so, however, for the opportunity to fill their accounts with more credits than they can imagine spending in one lifetime.

Order from Chaos: Strangeness and unpredictability abound, but nothing is beyond the reach of sentient minds working to bring order to the galaxy. The PC's personal mission is to bring sense and structure to everything, to see the patterns, and to collect the outliers in the chaotic systems of existence. Every seemingly random outcome is governed by rules, and the PC is just waiting to find them.. or he at least waxes philosophical, and speaks passionately of such things, after a beer or three.

Deckard stands just over 6 feet in height, weighing in at ~180 lbs. Brown hair, always perfect, in an unkempt sort of way. Green eyes. Sincerely charming when he wants to be.. and insincerely charming when he doesn't. Enjoys the sound of his own voice, and a cold beer. Not so fond of.. being a fraud. Now trying to put his questionable skills to use in locating his missing mother, accepting other jobs as necessary, to fund his search.
