History & Background (Dossier)
- Their prowess earned them the respect of both the Vargr and the local aristocracy, the latter granting them their own world in recognition of their talents.
But by the time of the Final War, the family had largely died out, and its surviving members were scattered across a wide swath of Corridor. Just three members, and elderly matriarch and a married couple who were of child rearing age, still lived on their namesake world proper. Of the three children that the couple bore just one, their son Frederick, survives to the present day.
"Red" Koppel is a personable and likable old man in his early sixties. He has managed to keep the family estate in working order, and keep himself from going insane during the long periods of isolation. An occasional free trader or Vargr corsair ship from Tuglikki will visit once in a while, and Red keeps a radio to contact them, inviting the crew to dinner. Because of his gracious behavior (and lack of valuables) he has managed to win the respect of several Vargr bands, some of whom use his ranch to stash materials and contraband. The old man has great respect for the "doggies", but he pines for human contact, principally for a woman willing to bear him an heir to perpetuate the family name.
