Born July 29, 2996 to affluent merchant parents of Lyran heritage, Charles Edward Maxwell spent his formative years learning the finer points of frontier diplomacy and business in the Aurigan Reach. His mother and father made a comfortable living brokering and facilitating trade between the land holds of the Aurigan Coalition, the Capellan Confederation, the Free Worlds League, the Taurian Concordat, and the Magistracy of Canopus; though often at odds with one another, the diverse nations all had material needs, and the superlative ability of the Maxwells to conduct politically-neutral commerce amongst them kept customers' warehouses stocked and the coffers of the family full.

The prosperity of the family business enabled Charles to receive a robust primary education, and, when he was older, to attend a private Taurian military academy to formalize his secondary schooling.

Unfortunately, the continuation of Charles' life of privilege would not follow him into adulthood. His parents' ability to earn their fortune was eclipsed only by their ability to spend it. By the time Charles graduated from his university studies, his family had become utterly destitute. Unable to meet the demands of their creditors, and having fallen out of favor with their peers in the Outworlds gentry, Charles' parents took their own lives in 3019.

The single object of value which remained after the settlement of the Maxwell estate was a first-generation CPLT-C1 Catapult, which had only been spared from bankruptcy liquidation due to the presence of a mis-recorded lien in its title history. Charles took possession of the BattleMech, and, in an act of historical irony, christened it 'Tyche,' after the Greek goddess of luck and prosperity.

With little else to the family name, in 3020, Charles fell back on his tactical and mercantile knowledge to eke out a meager existence for the next five years as a caravan escort for House Arano.

In 3025, Charles was involved in the evacuation of Lady Kamea Arano from Coromodir IV, after a political insurrection, staged by the Espinosa family, resulted in the outbreak of military hostilities on the world. During the retreat, Charles was forced to eject from his BattleMech; both he and 'Tyche' were later rescued by Darius Oliveira and his mercenary crew. Charles remained with the unit for the next three years, eventually rising to become its commander.

Between 3028 and 3029, Charles and his mercenary company, now known as 'Aegis Division,' would play an instrumental role in helping House Arano defeat the Espinosa Directorate and restore stability to the Aurigan Reach. However, the inherent unpredictability of the Periphery and its persistent strife had worn thin on Charles. With substantial earnings in the company's accounts after remaining under constant contract to the Coalition for over a year, Charles elected to withdraw Aegis Division from the Reach and seek out new opportunities in the relatively-more-stable Sarna March. Establishing a foothold in Gellen's Heights, on the core world of Sheratan, Charles continued to offer his services as a full-time mercenary and part-time merchant for the next several years.
