Addison was born to Katrina and Commander Randall Walker in the city of Custer on the planet Avalon, being the youngest of three; his siblings are Morgan and Olivia Walker. He lived in Custer until he was eighteen, narrowly avoiding attaining a criminal record during his late teens on more than a couple occasions to achieve his dreams of being in the UN Navy.
He enlisted and started training as a shuttle pilot immediately out of high school, passing any examination or test that the Navy threw his way with flying colours. Addison graduated top of his class and was assigned to the Navy's Fifth Fleet to deliver the Marines into combat. A few years of service and a number of close calls passed before Addison would get into his first and only crash, a few months after his assignment to the Tenth Marine Division as the pilot for Fireteam Acheron, one of the most renowned outfits of the Fifth Fleet's Marine detachments. Unfortunately for him, it proved to be near fatal.
He lost both of his arms and his right leg when his shuttle was shot down by pirates during a raid on one of the smaller settlements on Genesis. If it wasn't for the brave soldiers that survived and defended the crash site until help arrived, he would be laying in a shallow grave in the middle of nowhere on Avalon.
Yet, for his sacrifices and so-called 'heroism' alongside his years of service, he managed to climb up the ranks to Command Master Chief and, with the addition of what influence his father had, attain cybernetics to replace the lost limbs. He was awarded the Purple Heart, Distinguished Pilot Cross and the Interstellar Service Medal, but filed for a reassignment from his fireteam shortly after his return. Rumours of why he did this were rampant, but most guess it was an effort to move on. Addison has become recognized as one of, if not the best shuttle pilot from the Fifth Fleet, and is known for his risk-taking and reckless behaviour.
