Formerly a Knight of the Order of Endless Stars, a monastic chivalric order dedicated to deep-space exploration and the protection of researchers, travellers, and colonists in the outer reaches of known space, young Nathan Bishop was anticipating a meteoric career when it was brutally cut short by a tragic industrial accident that left the squad under his command dead to a man and Bishop himself catatonic. When he recovered, he could no longer face the prospect of leading men into danger and was given an honourable discharge, after which he found employment as a teacher at an elite finishing school. His monastic training has given him a strong grounding in belles lettres as well as applied science, and his prior paramilitary experience makes him a shoo-in for school representative on field-trips and suchlike. He has recently been deployed to rendezvous with the clipper carrying the school's latest batch of students, and instead finds himself the sole mature authority figure aboard a runaway ship full of precociously-talented royals. He tends to spend as much of his time mediating between strong personalities as he does trying to get their mission back on track.

He carries him with some remnants of his earlier vocation, including a hypertome index, a monosword equipped with a pulse field generator, and a light armoursuit hardened against ballistics and energy weapons with an incorporated shield gauntlet. He never anticipated having to use any of them.
