Eli was the target of the brunt of his father’s over dominating ways to the point where his father tossed him to the wolves, disowning him when he came out at 16. He spent a year couch surfing and trying to survive until he was able to enlist at 17, at the first chance he got.

Personal History Eli McEntrye was born in Dallas on 19th of November 2127 to Charles and Emily McEntyre, a military family with deep roots in national service which Charles sought to instill in his sons from an early age.

Growing up under the weight of his family’s legacy, Eli spent years under the pressure of his father, who wanted all his sons to learn proper discipline, weapons handling, and self-reliance, skills useful for a future soldier of the United Earth. Charles was a stern taskmaster in this regard, pushing his youngest harder, longer and faster than his older sons, Charles did not tolerate Eli being the runt of the family and when he discovered Eli making out with a neighbor boy when Eli was 16. Charles immediately disowned him and tossed him out to fend for himself.

Eli spent a year, going from one place or another, trying to survive on whatever he could find. He leaned on the skills his father beat into him, becoming a rugged survivalist. As soon as he was able to at 17, Eli went to the nearest recruiting station and enlisted in the MACOs, he didn’t have the education like his older brothers did, both receiving commissions to West Point as MACO officers.

Still Eli welcomed the chance to show (if not actually but mentally) his father that he could be the best that he could be. He trained harder than any recruit had at Recruit Depot, Parris Island. His scores were impressive and finding those who shared his interests (and his orientation as well) helped to bring out Eli from the fortress he’d built around himself trying to survive day after day on the streets.

He graduated boot camp 6 months later and was selected for Orbital Airborne School at Alpha Centauri. A course that Eli made good on his promise to himself. He thrived, qualifying for Orbital Airborne Operations and expert ratings on EM-44’s and EM-43 class weapons as well. He earned his Maroon Beret of the Orbital Airborne with high marks.

He spent the intervening years on combat assignments in Earth space and Starship Duties as embarked MACO.
