David Shetland was born into a noble family on a world with a dense, tainted atmosphere and 1000 inhabitants, most of whom are in the chemicals trade. His childhood and adolescence was uneventful, but instead of attending university as most other scions of the nobility did, he joined the Scouts. There have been rumors, never confirmed, of a scandal connected with his application to university.

His first terms were spent learning the ropes of being a Scout, but he eventually found a niche in planetary survey and contact. This stood him in good stead when he was detached at his family's request to welcome a Droyne enclave to Ipsham, and act as liaison between the Droyne and the human community there.

He was recalled to active duty with the Scouts to perform intelligence-gathering duties during the Solomani Rim War. Although there were no complaints about his performance, the bureaucracy ground on, and at age 46 it caught up with him and required him to muster out.  During his final week as a Scout, he won a Type A2 Far Trader - and its mortgage - in a card game. While the minimum required paperwork to muster Sir David out was completed, he never claimed the remainder of his benefits from the Scout Service.
