Have you ever heard of the Butterfly Effect? In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.

In simple terms, this means that even the smallest choices in your life can become big results when time has passed. A small leaf that floats around the air seemingly harmless, can cause the biggest wars to start across galaxies. I read about this 'butterfly effect' when I was about 11 years old and still attending the Arkanis Academy. It was in between a group of books my father bought me for my birthday, most of them didn't catch my interest as they based around military skills and techniques a young cadet must know.

When you have Armitage Hux as your father and Brendol Hux as your grandfather, you already know those skills by memory from the youngest age.

I grew up in Arkanis and trained there as the youngest cadet ever to be accepted and not to continue publicly to the senior universities next to Arkanis. I believe it's because my father and grandfather thought their own teachings were enough to make me a soldier worth their ranks. Maybe they were. Maybe my father's links are strong. While I'm writing this Milicent is purring in my lap. It's a late night by Galactic Time and we are passing Derra in the Expansion Region. It's small and of little value. We aren't stopping on it.

What I am here for is not to describe Derra or Milicent, but to explain my experience with the butterfly effect, and how the smallest decisions I made in my life lead me to be the person I am today.
