Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, Jason Starwalker swore revenge on crime, an oath tempered with the greater ideal of justice. Starwalkers trains himself both physically and intellectually in order to fight crime.Edit
Jason Starwalker – a name heard in most parts of the universe, and a name feared by those with a bounty on their heads. Young Jason Starwalker and younger brother Joshua is brought up the Free Federation of Space, with its wealthy splendor, and leads a happy and privileged existence until the age of eight, when his parents are killed by a small-time criminal named while on their way home from a movie theater. The Starwalkers swears an oath to rid the city of the evil that had taken his parents' lives. To the world at large, Jason Starwalker is often seen as an irresponsible, superficial playboy who lives off his family's personal fortune (amassed when his family invested in Corsaillian real estate before the city was a bustling metropolis) and the profits of Starwalker Enterprises, a major private technology firm that he inherits. However, Starwalker is also known for his contributions to charity, notably through his Starwalker Foundation. Jason Starwalker creates the playboy public persona to aid in throwing off suspicion of his secret identity, often acting dim-witted and self-absorbed to further the act. Among the more noted measures he uses to maintain the facade is pretending he is a heavy drinker by claiming his glasses of ginger ale are strong beverages; Jason Starwalker is actually a strict teetotaler to maintain his physical fitness and mental acuity.Jason Starwalker,among the criminal underworld,is known as one of the most feared bounty hunters within this part of the galaxy.Edit
3.1 On a routine patrol, he was in pursuet of the three individuals,who killed his parents,in among a squadron of Gorthan Star Pirates,attacked by hostile forces and was forced to flee through the core of a star. His escape came with a high price. The ship was struck by massive amounts of the star's energy which flowed through the connecting agents at his wrists and spine, frying his nervous system, senses and memory.EditEdit
3.2 Another ship ,commanded by Doctor Colurean Drax,an Alpha Rijairean scientist and medical physician,on his hard luck times,having lost in high status,among his people,due to gambling depts,would eventually take him on board, but the doctors gave up on restoring him. However, Alpha Rijairean – presumably technologically based creatures – repaired him and gave him an artificial nervous system in the form of a cybernetic falcon-drone named Ulysseas. Together with his android falcon, Jason Starwalker hunts the universe for some of the vilest individuals alive.EditEdit
Seven years later, with the war end,Jason Starwalker made a name for himself as a bounty hunter. Spinning tall tales to impress women about how his injuries were caused by a near collision with group of Gorthan Pirates (which only his superlative pilot skills managed to avoid), Jason Starwalker crafted a more fitting origin tale to complement his fearsome reputation.
After the war had resulted Jason Starwalker is a veteran of the Terran Federation Colonial Alliance Wars who probably served under Confederate guerilla leader William Heartford,the Third, where he lost his eye.

She is given three recommendations, but chooses to hire Jason Starwalker , because he is described as the most merciless. He repeatedly rebuffs her attempts to hire him.
Meanwhile, at the boarding house where she is staying, Terran Federation Ranger Joshua Starwalker arrives on the trail of Skarr Deacon. Joshua Starwalker has been pursuing him for several months over a murder in Texas. He proposes to Robin Hightower that they should team up with Captain Starwalker, since the Marshall knows the Choctaw terrain where Skarr Deacon is hiding, while Joshua Starwalker knows how the man is most likely to behave. Robin Hightower rejects Joshua Starwalker's offer, partially because he would take Skarr Deacon back to Texas to be hanged for the prior murder, instead of her father's.

After they turn on each other, Captain Starwalker kills the older outlaw, and as the younger one is dying, he explains that "Lucky" Ned and his gang were planning on returning to the shack later that night. Believing Skarr Deacon to be riding with 's gang, Captain Starwalker and Robin Hightower lie in wait for the gang. However, Joshua Starwalker rides up to the shack ahead of the gang. When the gang arrives, they lasso Joshua Starwalker and drag him behind a horse. Captain Starwalker opens fire from his hiding spot, and kills several members of the gang, wounding Joshua Starwalker.
During the night, Captain Starwalker drinks a great deal of whiskey and is severely drunk the next morning. The following night, he and Joshua Starwalker argue again, and Joshua Starwalker departs once more. The next morning, as Robin Hightower draws water at the river, she encounters Skarr Deacon who is watering the gang's horses. She draws her father's pistol and shoots him. The pistol misfires as she tries to finish him off, and he drags her back to the gang.

Once alone, Skarr Deacon attacks Robin Hightower; Joshua Starwalker knocks Skarr Deacon out with his rifle butt, and explains that when he heard the shots in the morning, he rode back and encountered Captain Starwalker, who hatched a plan.

A Corvaillian Star Freighter arrives on the ice planet of Bitterfrost.-a remote iceball,along the Corvaillian/Corsaillian Trade Route across the Delta Triangle.
Monark gives the frightened federal representative his card and is then introduced to the sheriff. Why is the Starstalker on this Mega IV outpost by the name of New Canaan? To track down murderer Kurt Hammer. Naturally, Monark will have to hand in his weapon while he goes and gets himself a hot meal. This naturally leads to a bar fight and Monark making the acquaintance of the lovely Ms. Goodfriend.
The two get friendly and Monark explains his origins: seven years ago, a rigger fleeing from hostiles through the core of a nova. His entire nervous system was fried. Picked up by a neutral ship, the 'technos' saved him by linking him to Ulysses, his android falcon.
How does that work? Well, we get an idea on the next page, after Kurt Hammer has made his presence known. We learn he's more than just a murderer, but that's all plot stuff. Either way, Monark chases after him.
The story ends in classic Western fashion, is all I'll tell you. All in all, good writing from Chaykin and art that fits the story well (if a little dark at times). In fact, it's just splendid art. Definitely a style that I wished Chaykin had stuck widt.
