Name: Meqao
Race: Zabrak
Background: Jedi/Sith Apprentice
Class: Guardian/Inquisitor

Description: Meqao is a young Zabrakian female, with coloration similar to that of her father. She has a single topknot of white hair from the back of her head which hangs down past her shoulders. She has markings similar to her father as well which cover her lithe yet muscular figure. It is apparent she is no stranger to exercise. Among her kind, she is considered attractive but perhaps not quite beautiful. She typically wears simple leathers which cover her body.

Background: Meqao had a rough childhood she never knew or even met her father. His passing prior to her birth the daughter of a simple dalliance with her mother. It was obvious from a young age that Meqao had a connection to the force, a strong one at that. By the time she reached her teen years, she learned of her father's death from another who knew him. She learned of her father's training and service to the man who was now the Emperor. Her father replaced by the emperor's new apprentice Darth Vader.

Meqao made it her goal, to take her father's place one day. Over the next 7 years she trained her body as hard as she could in preparation. At the same time focusing her mind and spirit as well to learn to control the force. It was during this training that at last she was detected, and troops sent to kill or collect her. She was still on Zabrak when the troops arrived, and found her. As they moved to arrest her she leapt to the attack, taking the troopers off guard and killing two with her blaster before they even had a chance to react. The third trooper managed to get off a shot which Meqao avoided and shot him as well, before taking aim on the final trooper.

The final trooper knowing full well he had no chance lowered his weapon. Meqao smiled at the trooper and moved closer he blaster still trained on his chest. Looking directly at him she spoke clearly for him to hear. "You will take me to your Master Darth Vader. I would speak with him, and learn from him." The trooper simply nodded as he turned and moved back into the ship, as Meqao followed him and took a seat inside. When they arrived at the station Meqao allowed the trooper to take her to Darth Vader.

As she was ushered forward Darth Vader looked to the trooper detecting the manipulation Meqao had placed in his mind. Dismissing the trooper as Meqao dropped to one knee. "Lord Vader I come seeking your guidance and training so that I may serve the emperor and avenge my father Darth Maul. Vader looked at the woman and felt her strong connection to the force. From that point forward Meqao began her training as an Inquisitor in the service of Lord Vader and the Emperor, eager to avenge her father's death and on day take his place at the Emperor's side.

Very Cool Game Idea! Especially given the current Star Wars Series being released.

I'm currently tapped out until after your deadline, but I Wish You the Best with your game.

Stormhammer is not a GM anyone should sleep on.

If I end up getting news on other apps before your deadline, I may toss together my old 'Starkiller' ripoff concept.

EDIT: Might end up tossing a Sentinel app together.

Regardless, Good Luck, Stormhammer. I'm sure you won't disappoint.

Arryn Lok
right-aligned image

left-aligned image

Name: Arryn Lok
Race: Human
Background: Mandalorian
Class: Scout

Description:
Arryn stands at 5'10'' (177cm) tall, wears a Mandalorian-style armor that is in maroon and dark scarlet color shades with metallic silver elements, and has a tint of dark blue sheen in the dim light. Underneath the armor, Arryn is a fair-skinned, slim-toned, and wiry Human woman in her late twenties. She has medium short auburn hair; cold, blue eyes; and a calm, unmoved face. She moves nimbly, with a feline-like grace, deliberate and calculated like a predator on the prowl.

Background:
Arryn of Clan Lok was born on Mandalore. Her parents were bounty hunters, and Arryn spent her early years wandering the galaxy, which shaped her personality, inducing a wanderlust streak. Later, at the insistence of their parents to learn knowledge from outside Mandalore, Arryn joined the Imperial Navy. Initially, she was assigned to the Imperial Marines, and eventually her career took her to specialist commando and sniper schools, and she became Imperial Special Forces. She wandered the galaxy with the best Imperial soldiers, learning from them and fighting for the Empire on the most daring missions.

That is how her paths crossed with the fearsome Lord Vader. Her unit was used on more than one occasion by him, and her skills caught his personal attention. She was singled out for an assassination mission by him. She completed it to perfection, and for that she was promoted to the officer's rank. She was assigned to a new unit where she had a chance to fight with the Force users as well. However, due to political infighting, which she was not interested in, she was sidelined and moved to static and uneventful posts, and finally she resigned her commission.

She returned to Mandalore and Concordia, where she met her parents again. It was a brief and very intense time for her to reconnect with her Mandalorian roots, where she trained in the ways of her people, earned through combat the respect of her clansmen, and eventually learned how to care for the armor. However, she found staying in the Mandalorian system too boring she bought a ship and she left to become a bounty hunter and a hitman, and to wander the galaxy again.


Her last few quarries must have caught Lord Vader's attention again...

How many creds for a pair of realistic cosmetic eyes? Completely non functional. No cybernetic enhancements but will fit the vestigial eye sockets of a Miraluka to hide her race

JaredSyn: Your secret is fine with me.

Saratek: Thank you for the endorsement.

A7ice: Good to see you again.

orcbane: Going for a half-breed?

Dylan Scott: Iím going to say 400 cr. They pass as real to casual observation, but will cause facial recognition cams to bug out. If you want ones that will get your character past facial recognition cams, youíll have to pay 1,000 cr.

Name: Maiella
Race: Miraluka (appears Human)
Background: Scoundrel
Class: Consular/Inquisitor (Way of Manipulation)

Description: A young human looking woman in her mid-twenties (24), with long black hair, streaked and Dyed in places with Blue, shaved close partly on one side in ornate patterns. the only makeup she commonly wears is blue eye shadow around her steel grey eyes in another ornate pattern, her eye brows notched in places (all a facade to take focus away from the scarring around her eye sockets marking her as Miraluka and her eyes as fake)

Standing around 5' 6" tall with a lithe athletic build, she looks like any other young street rat citizen of the galaxy. her weaponry hidden to give no outward clues to just how dangerous a weapon she is.

Background: Descendant of the famous Miraluka Jedi Master Q'Anilia, Maiella was blessed with powerful force potential and destined to become a great Jedi like her parents and grand parents, all the way back to her famous ancestor. The Emperor had other ideas, the Jedi Purge. Maiella was spared the massacre of Order 66 by mere weeks, just young enough to not yet have started at the Jedi temple as a youngling, her parents took her into hiding as the hunt to eliminate all the Jedi began.

The following years were hard but her parents did their best to keep her hidden and safe and teach her to access her potential in the force and follow the Jedi Ideals, but the young Maiella struggled with Jedi lessons and the more sensory and mental aspects of her teachings, although she possessed a talent for Telekinesis. skills which would prove invaluable in the coming years helping her survive on the streets.it was only a few years until the Inquisitors found them, putting her parents to death. Maiella would likely have joined them but her life was spared by the inquisitor known as Tenth Brother.

Perhaps it was because he was also a Miraluka, or perhaps it was because he was taken by surprise by the 10 year old girl who somehow managed to pull his lightsaber from his hands to hers and ignited it to strike him down, her aura flaring with dark side anger to his force sight giving him pause, along with the anger in her eyes (another curiosity. he knew she was Miraluka but she had eyes..he later found out that they were cosmetic prosthetics fitted to the girl to help her hide her race and pass as human. the Miraluka known to be force sensitive and hunted just as the Jedi were)

Despite his orders to slaughter any Jedi he found, tenth brother spared her life and seeing the dark side already taking hold of the girl he took her to Mustafar, to be trained as an Inquisitor as well. another soldier for Lord Vader's personal army. Under his tutelage and that of the other instructors the angry girl from the streets flourished, possessing immense power and developing a flair for Telekinesis, manipulating weaponry from afar and coupling it with her habit of carrying small blades about her person to propel towards her targets. Although she had always struggled to learn the mental powers from her parents, under the teachings of the dark side Maiella has started to tap into her telepathic abilities and is slowly learning to manipulate minds as well as she does physical objects, becoming even more valuable to Lord Vader who has chosen her to be part of his new band of Mercenaries.

i'll go with the ones that will pass facial recognition cameras (credits deducted on sheet), if only cause having the purely cosmetic ones could cause problems while carrying out Lord Vader's Missions and he doesn't take too kindly to mistakes so she will have had them upgraded to avoid that
