Mustered Out on Regina
Sargeant Major Ron Preston
Gambler in Residence aboard The Red Dawn
Ron Preston is late of the 1188th Lift Infantry, a mercenary unit that was all but wiped out in 1086 while fighting in Bakujistra on behalf of Jingarlu.
His only memento of the time is a pack of cards featuring the emblem of his unit, which he uses as a lucky talisman whenever gambling.
Since retiring, he has made a steady living as a professional gambler and is a popular character due to his being a natural raconteur who loves telling stories regarding his time in the forces and also about the many worlds that he has traveled to since his retirement.
