Achura are not known as a major space-faring power, and before the advent of independent capsuleers many likely did not even know Achura existed within the wider Caldari identity. I am curious however, and would like to ask fellow Achura, what was your path to the pod?
Why did you undertake the training, and what have been your experiences so far?
In the interests of disclosure, and to answer my own questions: I was trained to be a shrine maiden of my sect but a life of chastity and contemplation of the analects did not interest me, so I ran away as a teenager. I was accepted into a Sukuuvestaa education fellowship while I supported myself working in a ramen restaurant. I eventually graduated with a law degree and was commissioned into the Peace and Order Unit where I served for two decades before a stint as a corporate lawyer at the Zento-Isideko Combine.
Yeah, it’s pretty boring!
I decided to become a capsuleer because I could afford it, and was curious what was out there beyond the borders of the State. I’m still not sure what I’ll find out there!
Although so far a lot of it seems really violent.
Anyway, looking forward to hearing about other Achura and your stories!
