Galen grew up in the city of Noire to a poor household, him and his brother raised only by his father. Everyday he saw his father working, always striving to give his sons a better life. He hated the fact that his father had to work harder to support them, and hoped to get a job when he turned the legal age to relieve his fathers workload. On his first day of work as a dishwasher at the local pub, he came home to find his father collapsed. His father passed away later at the hospital from his lack of sleep and exhaustion. From that day forward, he wouldn't let his father's sacrifice be in vein, and would strive to make himself a success.
At the age of 24, he had finally raised enough money to open his own bar. Things were fine with him bar-tending for a year, but two groups of pirates entered town one day, Drake's Bandits and The Mirage Raiders. He'd had an altercation with one of the Mirage Raiders, Ethan, for not serving him alcohol while being a minor. Later that night, while shopping for groceries, he returned to find his bar raided and on fire. He was devastated, with his clouded judgement, he'd just assumed it was the Mirage Raider because of the earlier incident. Although holding his own, he was beaten by the Raiders and informed they didn't do it. Galen realized it must have been Drake's Bandits, he apologized to the Raiders and started to walk away. They stopped him and offered to help, they felt some sympathy for him, and they wanted to take down a rival crew. After the defeat of The Bandits, The Mirage Raiders were impressed with the natural magic skill he displayed and offered him a spot traveling with their crew. With the loss of everything he had, he had no choice but to reluctantly accept the offer. Now travelling the sea, Galen and his crew survive on searching for lost treasure, or raiding government ships carrying stolen goods. While he does take part, Galen would rather just keep doing his job tending the ship's bar, although his knife skills regarding alchemy magic have earned him the nickname Bane Blade Galen.
Galen is usually calm when he has work to do, this is because he simply has a good work ethic. He values self-reliance, and wants to achieve success through his own work, not for the money, but to have the satisfaction of being able to do it through hard work alone. His natural determination won't let him walk away without finishing what he starts.
