The King lineage is a long one dating all the way back to the American Revolution War where the family wasn't exactly patriots or even siding with the crown but were profiteers and hell they still were. With the patriarch of the family having their hands in almost every cookie jar they made fortunes on about everything.
Ellis was born into a large family he was born in the middle between the oldest Jake King (30), than Celeste King (27) and than the three younglings Nicolai King (20) than Sarah King (19) and finally Jamie King (16). Out of all the Kings Ellis and Sarah (when she was old enough) were the only ones who felt the need to serve a higher purpose (besides making a butt load of money).
So at 26 he went off to OCS (Officer Candidate School), basic training and several other advanced courses. Once that was all done he came out as a second lieutenant and platoon leader. He was stationed on Cestus III as part as a peace keeping force.
During his training he met a young Private First Class Sophie Ann Miller (at the time). She was a logistics NCO. After several months they became an item and right before Ellis was deployed to Cestus III he asked her to marry him which she said yes.
The reason for the peace keepers on Cestus III was that the Vanguard was using it as a base of operations i the southern part of Federation space. Very little space activity more of a recruitment, training and supply depot.
At the end of the tour (3 months) his platoon was ambushed by a large group of Vanguard. With his quick thinking and out of the box tactics he was able to push the Vanguard and only suffer minor casualties. And because of that he received a promotion to First Lieutenant and was shortly transferred to the USS Vindicator to lead a platoon under veteran Marine Captain Alex Eberos. Prior to the transfer to the USS Vindicator Ellis and Sophie Ann were married and became Sophie Ann King was promoted to Lance Corporal and was also transferred to the USS Vindicator.
