Zaine was born on the Mandalorian world of Ordo, to Mandalorian Protector of the planet Gwaine Ordo and a Corellian woman named Keira Ann Halcyon around 30 BBY. Zaine learned to use a blaster starting at the age of 6. At the onset of the Clone Wars in 22 BBY both Gwaine and Keira volunteered to aid the republic despite the Mandalorian Governments stance of neutrality. Zaine wanted to join them but his father would not let him due to his age. About a year into the War his mother went missing somewhere in the outer rim, Gwaine searched for a year but was unable to find any trace of her. Gwaine returned home to care for his son, while still sending out teams to look for his beloved. Late into 19 BBY the council of elders forced Gwaine to abandon the search for Keira and remarry a mandalorian warrior from one of the ruling clans or Ordo. Gwaine married a woman named Janina Priest, who took to raising Zaine like her own. In 18 BBY just days before his 13th birthday Janina gave birth to a son she named Canderous who began getting all the attention from all members of the clan except his father. In 15 BBY Zaine around his 16th birthday he was drafted by the Imperial Military Academy on Mandalore. His father gave him a buy'ce to take with him on his travels, so he would always remember where he came from; and told him his armor would be waiting for him upon his safe return. He quickly learned the ins and outside of Imperial protocol and soon graduated at the top of his class. ISB quickly recruited him straight out of the academy, sending him on various missions throughout the underworld building contracts, making deals, and various other tasks he refused to talk about. Doing this for nearly a decade. During the revolt on Mandalore and the Mandalorians declarating independence from the Empire Zaine almost defected to join his family who chose to join the budding Rebel alliance. Zaine ultimately didn't after seeing the lack of resources the 'rebellion' tried to pull together, and the harsh punishment the so called rebels. Zaine was serving aboard the First Death Star when it destroyed Alderaan. Watching millions of innocent people die caused Zaine to lose every ounce dignity he once held for the Empire, which wasnt much to begin with after all the atrocities he'd seen. During the trip from the debris field of Alderaan to Yavin Zaine stole Governor Tarkins personal shuttle and tried to make his way home. Upon arriving at Ordo, his step mother told him that due to him abandoning his post and stealing an Imperial shuttle the Empire had issued a bounty on him and he was not welcome at the Citadel for fear of bringing the Empire down on them. She had the royal guard escort him off planet and leave him with some gear, and a couple of credits. Zaine managed to steal a cargo ship, and started smuggling weapons for the rebellion. Hoping that by helping them he would be able to have the bounty removed and return home. About a year after the destruction of the first Death Star Zaine had made his way to Rodia working a smuggling case, when his stolen ship was flagged and impounded while he was away from it. Now seeking a new way off the planet Zaine has joined an unlikely crew on their mission hoping to earn new smuggling contracts and make enough credits to buy a real ship.
