Grew up in Drammen, Norway, just outside of Oslo. V3 grew up in the shadow of three older brothers, so V3 always tried nir hardest to do the best in everything, from chores to learning everything they could from all the people in the neighborhood. After discovering a love for machines, V3 convinced the local Techie to take nem on if ne agreed to be the errand boy. At fifteen the local Techie released V3, saying there was nothing more to teach nem. So V3 left to live with nir eldest brother in Tokyo until ne could support nemself. Two years later and ne is on nir own with a new master to teach nir the ropes. Ne stays in the apartment above the workshop.
