But I don’t know what happens now
I am too scared to close my eyes

One might say that Wyatt Carson has remained a good guy mostly out of spite. Others might say he’s not much of a good guy at all, but he’s certainly a survivor.
Born on Earth and employed by ExoGeni as a planetary survey specialist, Wyatt passed through the Omega system several times while on business for the company in years past. He had a few associates, a few people in the area he might even consider friends, but his job kept him on the move. A couple years back, word came from the other end of the galaxy that an ExoGeni team including Wyatt had been taken by Batarian slavers. No one heard from him after that. Most people forgot him entirely.
Wyatt turned up in the Omega nebula shortly after the Reaper attack on Khar’shan, flying a battered Batarian shuttle and conspicuously dressed in the sort of garb that Batarians give to their slaves… minus the control collar and such, but accessorized with several weapons. He found his way into an association with Helena Blake, who’d developed a penchant for taking in wayward souls. Very shortly after that, those in the know heard that Helena was soon making an awful lot of deals to sell off a hoard of priceless Batarian cultural and religious artifacts thought lost or destroyed on Khar’shan. Within weeks of that rumor, several organizations enjoyed a large cut of the profits of those sales, including the Underspace Railroad and Aria T’Loak’s loyalists on Omega.
Word is that Wyatt took some small part in the fight against the Reapers after that, but only as a civilian volunteer and a partisan. The Alliance military wouldn’t take him after all he’d been through, and to watch him closely, it’s hard to blame them. Most of the time he seems perfectly stable and even friendly. He can fight and he can keep it together in a pinch, but he still has a marked tendency to watch his back and to keep an eye on the exits. His hands sometimes shake. He drops things, he trips, and at times his voice cracks… but nobody has ever messed with him twice.
