Biography[edit | edit source]
Jamison Meriwether was a street thug in his younger years and at 17 was known as a force to be reckoned with in his neighborhood. After hearing about a new sport called pit fighting Meriwether was one of the first competitors. However, after only two months, he stopped fighting in favor of betting on matches as he found he was far better at picking the winner of a fight than fighting himself.
He was successful and made enough money to become a pit fighter promoter. Meriwether poured all his money into purchasing the derelict liner called Odyssey which he renamed the OddEasy. Meriwether bought the ship with the knowledge that there was an audience for an even more violent form of pit fighting. He refurbished it specifically to host the illegal fighting tournament known as the Circuit.
While there were many stories surrounding why Meriwether called his ship the OddEasy, the real reason was that Meriwether, who had never been book-smart, did not know how to spell "Odyssey" when he re-registered the ship. In a flash of inspired creativity, he came up with the name OddEasy.
The casino ship became a booming enterprise and was famous as the home of the Circuit. Meriwether made sure to keep the OddEasy's activities just within the law whenever he was in Alliance space. As a result, the authorities were unable to pin anything on him or the OddEasy.
