Wiley was born on Silverhold to a family of struggling prospectors. When the silver mine rush went bust, Wiley was recuited into the browncoat militia toward the end of the Independence War, when things were getting last ditch and desperate. There wasn't much discipline or training, he and his fellow recuits were just given some surplus guns and pointed into battles. He was lucky not to see much action (though he did see some action as a sharpshooter) and got out with his skin intact.

Since the war ended, Wiley's been a hustler and hired-gun across a dozen border and rim worlds. He's rustled cattle, smuggled contraband, was a card shark and pool sharpie on Paquin for some years, got going in some places riding on charm and a bit of talent, but wore out his welcome one way or another, seen more than a few local jails, and always been on the move. Wiley's a dreaming schemer with lots of big plans that have gone south, and very little to show for it, except some bad reps.

He's recently hit rock bottom and is having a change of heart about his lowlife scamming and scheming. He's got some talent and Wiley wants to do something better by it, somehow, to show up his siblings (who have a low opinion of him) and impress his mom (who's been a bit heartbroken and disappointed but they still keep in touch).
