|Role||Founder of the Murray Cup|
Amon Murray is the famous founder of the Murray Cup.
Murray started as a criminal and gambler in the Ellis system shortly after its discovery. He was making most of his money selling illegal wares to the terraformers. He was also collecting bets on the amateur races throughout the system.
In an effort to make more money, Murray offered a small credit prize to the winner to attract more pilots and betters. The inaugural Murray Cup was held in 2479. The races grew in popularity and Murray increased the cash prizes as well. He mostly left his criminal enterprises behind and focused on pushing the sport and spectacle of ship-racing into the mainstream.
