Mitra Raksaka, a talented young aeronaut salvor, lives and works aboard the salvage ship, the Perihelion. He grew up in the Archive Enclave and was educated in the schools of the Archive where he met his best friend, Aash Azadi. At age 10, Mitra ran away from home for the first time and stowed away on a salvage ship, hoping to sail the Cloud Ocean. The captain found him within hours of leaving dock and returned him home immediately, but Mitra would not be deterred. Eventually, after several failed attempts, he left home for good, signed on to a ship, and never really looked back.
