Wan was a crew member of the Scopuli.  



Wan was born in the Belt. Eventually, he became a member of the Outer Planets Alliance. and several months before the Eros incident, he crossed paths with Julie Mao. He, like the captain, had compliments for the Earther crewmate. What he did not understand was her relationship with her father or with her father's money.

Throughout the series[]

Wan and the rest of the Scopuli crew were en route to intercept the Anubis, which was passing through from Phoebe station, based on the information that there was a new weapon aboard that could be used against Belters. They set up an ambush near the asteroid CA-2216862. They were not prepared for the type of ship the Anubis was, nor were they prepared for the type of weapon aboard. The enemy stealth warship launched breaching pods and Protogen quickly captured the Scopuli crew. Wan was ejected into space.[1]
