Vaeco is the adopted descendant of one of the five Verdgoran who fled to the outskirts of the Galaxy during the Great Purge. As Vulfur traditions dictate, his clansman and kin were instructed in the art of craft and war, bringing honor to their House through service. Like many Mandalorians after the dark age of the Purge, the covert his ancestors served were consistently on the move for fears of becoming completely eradicated, and their Clan names lost forever. During his 'Grandfathers' reign as Forge Master the group were discovered an consequently wiped out. Unfortunately this was a fate shared by many. Only a handful of individuals including the Smith survived, scattering to the corners of the sector and beyond.
The next person to take the Vulfur mantle was the Smiths biological daughter, who was trained as a traditional Verdgoran. By the time she came of age she and her Father found refuge with another covert in the Western sector of the Galaxy, applying their craft to better equip their warriors and repair damages sustained while out of hiding. Years passed before she'd adopt her Foundling, long before her ascension to Forge Master. Like many Foundlings, Vaeco had no living Family. Per Mandolorian custom the Verdgoran adopted the Near Human as one of her own, teaching him her Families unique ways of both warrior and artisan.
During his upbringing he was instructed primarily in the art of the forge, and the many applications it possessed in their lives. From durasteel to plastoid Vaeco was taught, and expected to remember, the strengths and weaknesses of numerous materials. The wisdom passed to him was the culmination of generations of trial and error with each Smith recording their success and failures through traditional practices. This trial was to prepare him for the unique molding properties of beskar, and how to properly forge the metal. He was also versed in war. Alongside the practice of the craft he was taught the ways of combat, and like the many Mandalorians before him he excelled in its application.
He was deemed ready to join the ranks of the Creed after his sixteenth year, no longer a foundling but a member of the Creed. He'd endured trials on two different fronts, one of the hammer, the other of the sword. He'd taken the first steps to becoming a Verdgoran but like every apprentice he had much to learn. The following year and a half was spent under the tutelage of his Mother who helped hone his skill while using the extra pair of hands to upkeep the groups equipment. Due to the rarity of beskar, the quality of tools and weapons Vaeco and the Forge Master, his Tutor and Parent, sought alternative materials to forge. This need for innovation branched their crafting style differently to the traditional methods of the Vulfur Clan. Vaeco personally found an aptitude to the maintenance and repair of equipment, though he dabbled in fabrication.
Once his tutelage was deemed complete he was given a gift of beskar ore, melted down from the excess of his Grandfathers armor. He was to depart the covert on her wishes and expand his worldly experiences. She was convinced his abilities would grow stagnant if he remained under her tuition for the coming years. She and her Father and her Fathers Father had experienced similar periods of growth through this unofficial tradition so in turn she extended the same courtesy. With the rarity of beskar after the Great Purge he was given enough to craft a few items of armor, but not a full suit. He would have to apply his innovative style to mitigate the lack of materials. Completion was the first step of his life outside the Concave and its protection.
Vaeco Vulfur is highly loyal to his Clan and the Mandalorian culture which adopted him. As an orphan and a product of strife, he is immensely grateful for his upbringing, and strives to honor the traditions instilled by his 'Mother' and late 'Grandfather'. He has committed himself to Clan Vulfurs practice of 'Vergoran', or Warrior Smith, ensuring his skills with a blaster is matched only by the skill of his craft. Vaecos current promotion within the Creed has elevated his sense of purpose but his eagerness is often misplaced. His wish is to bring honor to House Vulfur, though his actions and his trade.
As a member of a Covert he has spent the majority of his life on the move and in seclusion, keeping his identity a secret for the safety of the Creed. This has led him to adopt a kinship with his Utility Droid, despite its programmed existence and he is often seen in conversation during his craft. Although Vaeco is young and barely reached manhood, his recollection of his Mandalorian heritage and military history is astute. Stories of glory and battle were his lullabies and since childhood he has dreamed of partaking in related events.
