Doreth DeAmour was born on Coruscant to a middle-class trading family. As the black sheep of my family he was never his parent's favourite, but as the oldest son Doreth's father expected him to take over his business. He had no wish to. Doreth wanted to explore the galaxy, and find fame and glory. So he decided to run away and join the Imperial Navy.
After serving in the First Imperial Fleet for a time, reaching the rank of Flight Sergeant (First Class), Doreth was spotted by Moff Jake Kiltar who promoted him to Prefect, and gave him a seat in the government of the Elrood Sector.
