Somehow Ascorbius is still alive.
He's been shot at by scientists, chastised by mechanics, flown a vulture on fire with a missing landing leg and has a habit of ignoring his Co-Pilot Jayne. Currently residing in Colonia after accidentally signing up for an expedition.
He loves Lavian brandy perhaps a little too much and tends to take the direct approach to solving problems.
His favourite ship is currently the Lakon Type 9, although he's recently acquired a Type 10. Jayne isn't too happy about how he obtained the funds.
The current Type 9 smells a bit strange since Rog, the alien expressed extreme displeasure at anything containing vegetables and coated the insides with Rog Vom.
