Jasper was born on Anzati to an ambassador and his wife. Early in his life his parents were sent off world for a diplomacy mission when they were taken by Space Pirates and executed when the Anzat government failed to pay ransom. Jasper was sent to a foster family where he was raised as a simple working class child. He vowed every night that he would get off the planet and hunt down the pirates that killed his parents. He got his chance when he was sixteen, enlisting in the Anzati Star Crop. He was authorized to be aboard the Anzati Star Destroyer "Starlight". He was a communications reserve cadet on the ship for two years. The commander was set to retire and promoted Jasper to first officer underneath the new commander Rose, a female data and linguistic officer. Jasper was opposed to the transition and, with the majority of the crew behind him, revolted and took command of the ship, sending Rose back to Anzati on a shuttle. He re-routed the ship to the Tingel Arm to confront the space pirates. The Star Destroyer soon found the pirates docked at a space station hideout that was orbiting a moon of Belkaden. The "Starlight" engaged the craft with full weapons and soon was caught by itself in the battle against three Pirate vessels. As the ship was pummeled Captain Jasper took a bold step and authorized an emergency boarding of the pirate vessel. That order held dire aftershocks as his crew was slaughtered on the pirate vessel, leaving Captain Jasper with few options. Refusing defeat he hailed orbiting Agamar fleet, allies to the Anzati Star Corp. They responded to his distress call and engaged the pirates with their sizeable fleet. As the crippled "Starlight" took to its heels, Jasper took to his shuttle and assaulted the Flag ship of the pirates. He boarded the vessel and, with his minimum force skills, managed to overpower the crew and find the commander. He spared the commander his life but took him captive and destroyed the pirate fleet. The remaining Star Corp militia was forced to dock in Ziost due to malfunctions with their engines. Jasper's remaining crew was slaughtered by Ziost rebels who took him hostage. He was given over to scientist who literally destroyed his body with their experiments. They fitted him with a biological support suit and held him prisoner. For seven years he was held hostage while Anzat Star Corp. refused to negotiate with the rebels for their captain. Finally Jasper managed to get a peace deal and was sent home. He was stripped of his command of any Star. Corp vessel and sent into exile of Anzati. He soon found a home flying defensive runs for a cargo company, piloting a vessel known as the "Talon". He ran with those traders for seventeen years before giving up the gig and finding a new life among the starship repair crews on some of the space platforms. He had a knack for repairing many different kinds of ships and by age 50 he was chief technician for the Mon Calamari repair yards near the Roche Asteroids. His bio suit and genetic augmentations meant by his 60's he was still in top shape and was offered a job as commander of a Super Star Destroyer for the Tingel Arm Collation which he accepted. He commanded the vessel for twenty years, flawless in his records. By his seventies he had aged no more than a twenty year old. His ship came under heavy fire near Kamar when they confronted a known group of hostile spice runners. The Super ship was bombarded by heavy fire from Acclimators and Blast-boats. Jasper ordered a hold position which cost him the ship. His crew wanted to turn and fall back; he was overthrown and exiled to roam the galaxy, alone. He washed up in many low life bars, a former star ship captain and officer of the Anzati Star Corp, now a low life and beaten old warrior looking to drown his sorrows.
