Comet was born dirt poor. Only daughter of parents who quickly decided to become merchants on Orbital Tortuga. They were anything but adventurous, and their daughter had an austere youth, caught between confinement in the family store and apprenticeship centered on the needs of the resumption of trade. She quickly rebelled against the fate imposed by her parents and ran away from the family home.

She began to fulfill her dreams of adventure and wildest trips across the galaxy. Though a rebel with a cause, Comet never forgot her parent's values, "A penny saved is a penny earned".
