Callister grew up on a frontier colony world, and distinguished himself early on by his resourcefulness and his curiosity, ferreting out new resource caches and habitable zones out on the fringes of civilization. He picked up the explorer bug, hiking out into uncharted territory and leading expeditions into the wilderness. Those talents brought him to the attention of the Invisible Hand, who decided he could be used to explore - or destabilize - other people's frontier worlds. Callister jumped at the chance to go places in secret, and took their offer. With a few more years behind him, he's come to realize that it was a devil's bargain, but he hasn't yet worked out how to get out of the IH's clutches. Meantime, they do keep feeding him fascinating missions and top-class gear; he just doesn't want to be around when they finally decide to burn him.
