There's ruthless, and then there's Eratos.
No one's sure exactly where this Earthling was born and bred, but he sure left a big ol' skidmark on the face of humanity outSol. He was the founder and ruler of The Followers of Eratos, the most lawless faction I seen in thirty years of stripping and hooking. Alls we do know is that Eratos was one violent and unapologetic s.o.b., and he ruled his people with an iron fist and brass balls. He's dead now, a big win for the Multis, but that only made his "followers" more inclined to rob and kill their way across the galaxy in some kinda sick commemoration of his life of crime.
