History: Dusty first met Yang Wen-Li at the military academy in 785UC, and they have been friends ever since.
First Lieutenant Dusty Attenborough began a distinguished military career during the 5th Iserlohn Assault in 792UC. Later, after being promoted to Commander, he returned to Iserlohn for the 6th Assault as Captain of the Free Planets Destroyer "Elm 3" in 794UC. In 795UC he was assigned to the 2nd Fleet Flagship Patoroklos as gunnery officer. Dusty has learned quite a bit from his friend and has proven himself to be an able commander. Also appears briefly in the OAV "Golden Wings".
Dusty Attenborough and Olivier Poplan coin the phrase "foppery and whim" to describe the Yang Fleet's motivations in the face of incredible odds stacked against them.
When Dusty was a teenager, he wished to follow in his father's footsteps and become a journalist. His father, however, demanded that his son join the military instead. Eventually, Mr. Attemborough told his son that, as a condition for allowing him marry Mrs Attemborough, his father-in-law forced him to promise that he would raise his son to be a soldier.
All of Mr Attemborough's children, however, were girls, and his father-in-law died in battle against the Galactic Empire a few months before Dusty was born. Believing her newborn son to be the reincarnation of her father, Mrs Attemborough named her her son Dusty after her father.
Dusty adamantly refused his father's request, only aquiescing when his father fell to his knees, crying. Compromising, they decided that Dusty would attend both the military academy and the FPA Officer Academy. Ultimately, Dusty was accepted into the military school, but was not accepted into university.
Upon his son's entrance into the military academy on Heinessen, Mr Attemborough gave him a "lucky charm" that his father-in-law had given him on his wedding day: a rusted key. He claimed that once, while in Dusty's grandfather's pocket, it had saved him from a bullet (despite the key itself having no marks to corroborate).
FPA Military Service
FPA Military Service
A long-time friend of Yang Wenli, Dusty Attemborough first met Yang sometime before graduating from the Free Planets Alliance Officer Academy, and served together with Yang during both the Battle of Legnica and the Fourth Battle of Tiamat. During the Battle of Tiamat, Dusty was one of three other men who chose to accompany Yang Wen-li on a daring diversionary maneuver, one that ultimately led to the successful retreat of the FPA navy from the Tiamat Starzone. After the Battle of Astate, Attemborough became a staff advisor under newly appointed admiral Yang Wenli and the 13th Fleet.
Attemborough would continue to serve directly under Yang Wenli for most of the major battles of that era, including the Seventh Battle of Iserlohn that culminated in the bloodless capture of Iserlohn Fortress.
