He served in the Barrayaran Imperial Service for thirty-five years, getting most of his promotions during the Komarran Conquest. His career was stopped cold by accusations of a cover-up of illegal torture of a Komarran prisoner during the Komarran Revolt; he ended up in charge of Lazkowski Base soon afterwards.
After the Kyril Island Incident, he was cashiered on charges of brutality; he left Barrayar and joined Randall's Rangers, a mercenary group hired to help protect Vervain during the events leading up to the Hegen Hub War. He was killed during the battle.
