Who is Leontes Murrue?

Well, most people don't know who Leontes is. That's a good thing, considering who he is. Leontes Murrue is a thief, and one of the best spies in the galaxy. It's been said that he comes with the night breeze under a moonless sky, taking what he needs and gone without so much as a stone out of place. Well, that's actually a bit of an exaggeration, but Leontes's reputation as a spy and an infiltrator is well-deserved. And he does it all for a price. Just give him the cred and he'll do what he does best. And the best part of it is, it's all clean, as Leontes never tries to spill blood if he can help it.

So, if that's the case, what's Leontes doing with a bunch of spoiled princesses on a ship?

Well, the thing is, recently Leontes was offered one of the biggest jobs in his career, getting involved with a war between two noble families who'd been sniping at each other for some time. Now, the thing was, he was supposed to infiltrate both families, working as a double-agent for either side. But, things did not go so well, as someone he had been working with decided to bail and put Leontes in the crossfire. Leontes managed to escape, but it was high time to get out of Dodge, as the saying went. So Leontes called in a favor or two, hoping there was a way to get off-world in a hurry.

Opportunity knocked the next morning, as it turned out. A Princess's Boarding School on a Ship (as his contact described it) was leaving later that afternoon, and given enough time, he could pull a quick stunt and disguise himself as a member of the faculty. So Leontes Murrue, perhaps one of the great spies of the generation, is now a math teacher to the bratty nobility.

Let's just hope Leontes's nerves can survive the journey.
