Ajaur

FE3

Ajaur was once in line to be a Jedi Knight, the defenders of peace and justice in the galaxy and protectors of the Republic. Therefore, the fact that his status was that elevated makes his fall even more tragic. At the young age of thirteen, his Force sensitivity was not enough for a Jedi Master to choose him as an apprentice and he was assigned to the Agricultural Corps. Instead of becoming a Jedi Knight, he traded his lightsaber for farming implements. He served in the Corps for ten years, working hard but inwardly bitter over his assignment. Read more…

Alpha-21 "Twone"

FE2

Alpha-21 “Twone” was an ARC (Advance Recon Commando) trooper in the Grand Army of the Republic. Like the rest of his ARC brethren, he was personally trained by Jango Fett and first activated at the Battle of Kamino. Records indicate that Twone fought valiantly, saving the lives of several hundred adolescent clone troopers by fighting a delaying action against battle droids and Separatist commandos. His citation from the battle indicates that he lured a dozen destroyer droids into an armory and destroyed them with land mines, then persuaded twenty commandos into thinking he was part of a large clone patrol led by Jedi Knights, which caused them to withdraw. This would be in keeping with Twone’s documented twisted sense of humor with which he viewed the galaxy. Read more…

Jahlel Almani

EGTFEJahlel
FE3

Determining conclusive facts about Jahlel Almani’s life has been difficult due to the violence that surrounded his death, but recovered evidence has found some information about this Matukai. Almani’s homeworld is unknown; Arkanians were fairly common in the galaxy during that era and the Matukai did not keep records either on his homeworld or his parents. From a journal kept by his younger sister, Hasla Almani, we do know that he was orphaned at a young age and grew up on Darlyn Boda, living in the slums of the city of Darlyn Boda, begging for a few credcoins to survive. Eventually, he and his sister were discovered by a group of Matukai Adepts in the city on some errand, and, recognizing their Force-sensitivity, the Matukai took them in some time during their teen years.

Like her brother, Hasla Almani’s early life is largely a mystery, given the difficulty of finding accurate data on one of the trillions of displaced sentients during that era of turmoil. Her homeworld and familial lineage are unknown-recovered records seem to indicate that she herself did not know either of these. What is known was that she grew up in the slums of Darlyn Boda, Darlyn Boda, where her older brother Jahlel took care of her. They survived by begging, and apparently Hasla had some means of finding flimsi with which to record a crude journal. As both of the Arkanian children were mildly Force-sensitive, they were found and taken in by a group of Matukai adepts, who brought them back to their enclave in Darlyn Boda’s wilderness. Hasla, a lonely child, was distrustful of the Matukai initially and made little headway in her training, unlike her brother, who excelled in their disciplined lifestyle. She found the regimen distasteful and despised her instructors. Read more…

When she grew up, she wanted to repay the debt she felt her family owed Yanibar and joined its defense force, the Yanibar Guard. Read more…

After an illness cost Rhiannon her eyesight at a young age, they grew incredibly protective of her, but still raised her in a loving environment.

Helsi D'brisse

FE2

Helsi D’brisse was one of the youngest Mistryl team leaders ever, and her superiors made sure she knew it. She was typically sent on easy missions with plentiful assets—partially because Helsi was notorious for underestimating her opponents and partially because she wasn’t that highly trusted. Despite her half-dozen successfully completed missions before she was twenty-five, Helsi was looked down upon as impetuous and hot-headed, a label she somewhat deserved. She also preferred working alone, mostly because that meant she didn’t have to share the credit for a successful mission or be responsible for the actions of anyone but herself. By far, she preferred assassination to kidnapping or serving as a bodyguard; it was much easier to kill someone to keep them alive, after all. Read more…

However, as the Galactic Civil War progressed and he found himself chafing under restrictions against pursuing the enemies of the Empire, Delvardus began to doubt his loyalties.

He was known to be in Palpatine's inner circle during the latter stages of the Republic and the beginning of the Empire and was trusted to the point that he was personally dispatched to assist the Trade Federation in eliminating the Outbound Flight project. With his years of loyal and efficient service, Doriana proved to be a valuable agent for the Emperor. One of his rare failures came when he enlisted the aid of the Car'das Syndicate to set up a subtle surveillance net to track a fugitive Kiffar Jedi named Quinlan Vos on New Holstice a year after the rise of the Empire. His last major assignment was an Imperial Intelligence agent named Roxana Taskien was sent to the Neimodian purseworld of Zeru Neimodia to help quell a resistance there.

Salyeh Gau

YT

Salyeh Gau was a female Zabrak born on Iridonia. In 2 BBY, her parents fled the planet to escape Imperial reprisals and journeyed to distant Yanibar. Slightly Force-sensitive, she was considered for Zeison Sha training as a girl, but ultimately decided against it. The training had been rigorous, and the more Salyeh saw of the incredible feats of some of the Zeison Sha masters, the more frightened she was. She also knew that most of her friends and family were not Force-sensitive and that following the path of the Zeison Sha would lead her away from them. Instead, she quit her training and walked away from her Force talents, a decision which puzzled her instructors, who had always thought the hard-working but impressionable Salyeh Gau had potential, just lacked the confidence and control to master it. Her most impressive decision of her training was ironically her decision to leave it. Read more…

Bwilor was the youngest child of the six children born to Rellor and Sallana Haenn. His parents earned money by serving the upper class of Alderaan; they ran a small mechanic shop known as Haenn’s Fix and Fly.

Serra Keto was a human Jedi Knight originally born on Esseles. She was a talented individual and her skills flourished under Master Cin Drallig. Serra was one of the better lightsaber duelists of her class. She was also a good friend of Selu Kraen; they met each other in a lightsaber class when she was 13. From the start, they both felt something for each other, but didn’t know how to express their feelings and the Jedi Order prohibited them from having that type of relationship anyway. Originally, Selu was both attracted and intimidated by Serra, who struggled with showing off her superiority in Force-training and lightsaber combat. Naturally competitive, she saw her own achievements as a way to bolster her own self-esteem, and had to work to recognize the impression she left on others. As such, Serra seemed distant to Selu for several years, although she was struggling with her own insecurities. Read more…

Annita suffered all throughout her school years from sometimes daily beatings, wearing long sleeves to hide the bruises and keeping to a limited circle of friends. She even ran away once, but her father found her and punished her severely for that. Eventually, one of her classmates, Sarth Kraen, noticed that she didn’t go home at night. Sarth followed her home one night when she was about fifteen and was shocked to hear her being beaten by her drunk father. Sarth informed his own father, a lawyer named Samtel Kraen, about the situation, and Samtel filed an abuse and negligence suit on her behalf.She went to live with her mother in the city of Munto, but continued her schooling with financial aid from Samtel Kraen and tutoring from Sarth, as her mother had little means to provide for her. She spent many afternoons of her last few years of secondary school at the Kraen residence and grew attracted to Sarth, but he never reciprocated her feelings.Read more…

As a child, her father doted on her and called her his "sunshine" for her bright smile.

Growing up, she became close friends with her cousin Rhiannon Kraen and was seemingly unaffected by Rhiannon's blindness. They spent a lot of time at each other's houses playing, which pleased Rhiannon's parents, as they had worried about their blind daughter, particularly with their jobs in the Yanibar Guard often keeping them busy.

Jorgesoll Knrr was one of the gallant rogues for which Corellia became famous for during the waning days of the Republic and the rise of the Empire. Dashing, world-wise, with a devil-may-care attitude and a firm hand on the control stick of any kind of freighter, Jorge exemplified the popular galactic stereotype of a Corellian spacer. Though he never really owned a ship of his own, he served as first mate for many years for the Bothan captain R'hask Sei'lar, with whom he had numerous adventures and exploits aboard the freighter Hawk-bat. Jorge carried himself with a confident swagger, and was known for often being the loudest, most amorous spacer in the cantina, and often the one who held his liquor the best. It was a wild, risk-filled lifestyle, but Jorge enjoyed the carefree nature of the independent spacer's life for many years, journeying from one spaceport to the next in search of the next big deal, the next thrill.

Plo Koon was one of the pillars of the Jedi Order during the final days of the Old Republic. A member of the Jedi Council, the Jedi Master served the Republic honorably for decades, including in both the Stark Hyperspace Wars and the Clone Wars. Though most of his exploits are detailed elsewhere, Koon promoted a previous Padawan, a Trandoshan female, to the rank of Jedi Knight in 32 BBY. Three years later, he took another Padawan, a Human male named Selusda Kraen, as his apprentice. Selu showed little promise in many of the disciplines sought after by Jedi, with a mediocre aptitude for lightsaber combat and no special talents. Still, Koon saw promise in his apprentice and taught him in the ways of the Force, giving him valuable lessons in a wide variety of areas. Koon soon realized that Selu had potential in some of the more arcane Force powers related to altering the environment-powers similar to his own. He passed on those techniques, teaching Selu to use telekinesis and the controversial Electric Judgment. His Padawan also learned Force camouflage on his own, impressing Koon with his knowledge of the esoteric and difficult technique. Read more…

Growing up, she was a somewhat quiet child, but very bright and adept at persuading people to see her point of view. As she grew older, she watched and eventually began helping her father, Larik Trealus, bargain with merchants over crop prices at the spaceport in Bakura’s capital, Salis D’aar. Cassi soon proved herself as a hard bargainer and her father let her do the talking by the time she was sixteen. However, for much of her youth, while the rest of her siblings largely desired to stay on their peaceful homeworld, she dreamed of wandering the stars, or at least visiting other worlds. Her chance came when she turned eighteen, as her father had become wealthy enough to afford to send her off to distant Coruscant for a university education. Cassi hoped to spend a few years simply exploring the galaxy and then return home to Bakura and become a teacher. Read more…

Lena Quee Kraen was born on Commenor as the middle of three daughters to a middle-class family. Her father was often away from home, as he was a Senate Guard, and Lena grew up withdrawn and alone. She could often be found reading about exploring other worlds. While she was smart and hard-working, there was no denying that she was a dreamer. It therefore came as no surprise when she decided to become a hyperspace mapper upon graduating from the University of Commenor. Her mind was able to fathom the complex dimensions of hyperspace, and at age 22, she joined the crew of a Barloz-class ship which went on long expeditions to the Outer Rim and Wild Space, mapping new systems and hyperroutes, with funding from the Obroan Institute. The Barloz ship, the Sunflash, was also accompanied by a secondary vessel, a small YT-1210 freighter, the Quick Step that was supposed to serve as an escape vehicle or secondary transport. The work was somewhat dangerous, as hyperspace jumping into unknown space could be dangerous, but though there were often mishaps, serious danger was usually avoided. As such, the crew grew complacent and relaxed, particularly with the use of the Quick Step, which they increasingly sent on detached missions in order to reap more profit, as they were paid for the systems and routes they surveyed and mapped.

She was well-educated, per her father's wishes, and was close to him, but remained aloof from many others, thrust too early into a role in public service for which she was not prepared.

In 27 ABY, Chalacta was invaded by the extragalactic Yuuzhan Vong. The planet was allowed to retain its government due to its swift capitulation, and the initial Yuuzhan Vong demands, though harsh, were not unreasonable. That changed, however, in 28 ABY when a group of New Republic volunteers stormed onto Chalacta to evacuate as much of its populace as they could, including Shara and her father, along with the rest of the government.

He began his life as a vat-grown soldier on Kamino, a genetic duplicate of the legendary Jango Fett. A less-restricted variant than standard clone troopers, Alpha-28 was an Advance Recon Commando, or ARC, an elite group. He and his brothers were personally trained by Jango Fett himself to become one-man-armies, capable of completing a wide variety of missions independently or with support.
