Amalek is a high-ranking commander, or Lead, within the FOEs. He grew up on the water planet of Alqualin, where most people live within underwater cities. When he was old enough, he wanted to escape the cold dark depths of the ocean and sail the high seas. After doing that for a few years, he wanted to ascend further and explore the galaxy. Soon after that, he learned of the FOEs and eagerly joined their cause.
