Rumors About VanceEdit
"I saw you talking to Vance earlier. That guy used to be one of the best combat pilots around here, but he's totally washed up now. All he does nowadays is shuttle people from planet to planet, and whatever money he makes, he uses to buy this terrible Sidewinder Fang stuff." - Constable Charles Simms, Bretonia Police, Planet Cambridge
