Berkley Novelizations

Background

Boxey is an full-fledged orphan, his parents presumably killed during the final Cylon attack on the Colonies.[1] His adoptive parents became Serina and Apollo respectively.[2]

As Boxey grew older, he came to hate that name and his extended family searched for a new name, given that they never knew his birth name. As a result, they christen him "Troy".[3]

Given the deaths of both sets of parents, biological and adoptive, Troy had "put up barriers that no one could get through" for fear of loving someone, then losing them again.[4]

The Tombs of Kobol

Boxey is pleased at the fact that Serina and Apollo are to be married, however the marriage was short lived and he is forced to go through the death of his second mother.

The Living Legend

After Adama's death sometime well into the future, Troy is given command of Galactica and access to Adama's personal journals that have not been read by anyone before him. (Apollo is not given command due to his death sometime before Adama's.) When presented with Adama's logs after a pre-recorded introduction made by Adama, he first searches the logs about Commander Cain, who Adama credits for saving the entire The Fleet.[5]
