- "Make Room. Make Room. Puzzle-solver Smiley slicing through!"
Although he claimed to have been born on the flagship Wholesale of the Squib Reclamation Fleet, Smiley hailed from Metrobig City on Skor II. When he was only seven, his parents, both industrial traders, gave him to another family in exchange for a mining borelifter.
Smileredon-Verdont ended up as a companion to a trader from the Minos Cluster. During this time, Smiley claimed, the pair visited the planet of Yelsain and "tamed the woods" there. Smiley took to dressing in the style of a Yelsain tree-dweller at this time. A few years later, the trader lost his ship to impoundment, and Smiley took to wandering about the Outer Rim Territories.
He claimed to be a practitioner of the Mystic Martial Arts of Squib Combats and Transactions, although whether there was any truth to his claim remains uncertain.
