Manéo "Néo" Jung-Espinoza was a young Belter from Ceres.



Born to an Earth-born father who oversaw a grid maintenance group, and a mother from the Belt who worked at a water treatment plant, he had a crush on his two years older cousin on his mother's side, Evita Jung.

The RingEdit

At the age of 18, trying to impress his cousin Evita, he built a spaceship he christened the Y Que and attempted to "slingshot" it through the Ring. When the ship passed through to the slow zone on the other side, however, it immediately and drastically reduced its speed, killing Néo instantaneously.[1]
