Bronx Manca

Artwork by Odette A. Bach

Bronx was born and raised on the planet Wolf X in the year 2228 AVS. His father, Patro Manca, sent Bronx to the Daer Academy when he was six. Bronx has little to no contact with his mother, Siba.

He was shipped to Kepler IV when he was sixteen for his apprenticeship. His mentor was Niklaryn Ettowa. He was joined by his girlfriend/fellow Daer, Sariah Bray.

Bronx is the sole witness to Niklaryn’s demise at the hand of Infiernen. He confronted Infiernen – who had changed his political affiliation from Daer of the Federatio to Negander of the Dominion. The Negander told him not to interfere. Bronx promised to destroy Infiernen. Bronx is now also a threat to Infiernen.

Bronx told Urius – the leader of the Federation – about everything. Urius made Bronx promise not to tell a soul what he saw. 

Bronx was transferred away from Kepler IV and ended his relationship with Sariah. Bronx continued his apprenticeship with a Daer named Danden Margase.

At 18, Bronx received his title as Daer and went home to Wolf X. His father died mysteriously and Bronx was blamed resulting in his being thrown out of the family home. Bronx moved in with his mother and there met his half-sister Crona and they bonded. Bronx accidentally killed her grandfather Captain Uriel Sandern II and was thrown out of the house. 

Crona ran away with him and together they followed a vision Crona had and there they met Kazimir Ettowa and Manden Manden. They all joined the Federation in the civil war against the opposing political faction – the Dominion.

Bronx decided to no longer wear the Daer uniform (although he never officially renounced his title) and studied to become a combat medic.
