Only knowing of his family being faithful to the Empire, Araith was taught in the top public school on Kuat, from learning the Galactic politics to the grammer and numerical systems used within the galaxy. Growing up on Kuat was a busy life, definiatly when Araith started his teen years and mingled with the popular posh peer group in Kuat's educational system. Living a life of luxery, with looks which attracted many girls, Araith was having a posperous life during his childhood and only himself could mess it up. Upon graduating the public school with many top grades from politics to physical education, Araith had to make a choice between two routes that he wished to take. One of these routes, led to the political side of careers, which would see him enter the galaxy as a clerk and slowly work his way up into a senator's office or possibly become one himself. However the other route that had seemed to take a interest within him, was the military side of careers. This career tempted Araith more as he learnt about the possibilities he could overcome within the profession, from travelling to foreign planets, to fighting for a cause within the galaxy. Being a lad of great stamina, health and physical appearance, as well as applying the brains to his work, Araith chose to enlist within the military academy upon Carida, the homeworld of the treacherous Stormtroopers who filled the Galactic empire's army.

However even though his partying behaviour was at a high, his grades within the academy never changed and stayed at the best possible grades he wanted to achieve. Applying theory and practical knowledge to his work, Araith passed all final exams in the academy after the three years he had endured at Carida. Gaining honours and a offer at within the Galactic Empire army, Araith had an offer he couldn't refuse. Though with a gut feeling, he turned away the offer and departed from Carida with his education completed, and was now deciding what he wanted to do.

Travelling back to Kuat, Araith took it upon himself to contact Greg Black-Granger, his oldest cousin...
Waiting for several days, Araith got the response he wanted and was contacted by Greg by holomail. Learning of his defect to the New Imperial Order, after being messed about within the Empire.
