Mortdecai is one of the three major pirate kings in the Azoth sector. His organization, the Angels, are known as the least hostile of the three factions.
Mortdecai was the leader of the Angels, but recently passed leadership off to Anya Prescott after a catastrophe at the asteroid colony Home took the lives of over 80% of the Angels and their families.
Mortdecai owns and captains a pretech ship named the Fallen Angel. How exactly he came to own this ship few know with any certainty. One thing is absolutely certain, however. Dr. Darren Wilson, of Glass Technologies, has great interest in the ship.
