Occupation: Shabiir (Mando'a, "Screw up")
The part of Var is played by: Jennie
Known character history:
Var's father, Vica, was a former Republic officer who resigned and
became a bounty hunter around the time of the Clone Wars, much to the
horror of his well-bred family, whose political standing was damaged
by his actions. When he married Ura, also a bounty hunter, he was
disowned by his family and only maintained sporadic contact with his
one brother. Ura had no surviving family. Vica believed that in its
latter years the Republic was crippled by corruption. He also
believed that the Empire was simply a new incarnation of the Republic
that might eventually correct the flaws and return peace and stability
to the galaxy. As a former officer he remained loyal to the Empire,
if disillusioned about its methods and goals and uneasy with Palpatine
being declared Emperor. He viewed the Rebel Alliance as a misguided,
bumbling threat to the civilian populace. He advocated loyalty and
adherence to the chain of command, but never to do so without thought.
Blind loyalty to any cause, he said, was the most dangerous thing in
Var was seven when her mother accidently became pregnant with Rel.
As far as Var is concerned, life went downhill from there. Var was
perfectly happy to be an only child and didn't welcome her sister's
birth. She felt that Rel stole her parent's attention and since then
has been driven to realign the family's pecking order by either
proving herself to be the better family asset, or making her parents
very angry. Thus, Var became both a source of pride and deep
frustration to her parents. She took to bounty hunting instinctively,
proving herself in tough combat situations again and again, but her
weakness for TIE fighter pilots, brawling, drinking, and inability to
stick to a curfew made her parents wary of trusting her with more
Var finally convinced them to let her take a solo mission, promising
to watch her behavior. Her mission was unsuccessful and she returned
to Corellia to discover her parents were the victims of sabotage when
their ship, the Scarlet Flag, suffered a catastrophic mechanical
malfunction, killing all on board. Var immediately began to
investigate and learned that the head of a smuggling ring her parents
had been stalking for weeks was responsible. Var, naturally, swore
revenge, but her plans were spoiled when she received emergency
contact from Rel. Rel was planetside for a SAGroup meeting when the
accident occured, and she'd been on her own for several days. Var was
glad to be reunited with her sister, but soon the responsibility of
being Rel's guardian came crashing down on her shoulders. Struggling
with the loss of her parents and confused about her course of action,
Var fell into her old habit of carousing. It wasn't until she was
attacked by thugs hired by Drell Gor'vdon, the smuggler who killed her
parents, that Var realized that Gor'vdon knew of their survival and
that she and her sister were in grave danger. Gor'vdon wants the
bragging rights for killing the entire Theslin clan as a warning to
others who would target him.
Var decided that she must find a safe home for Rel, both to hide her
from Gor'vdon and because Var thinks Rel deserves a better guardian
who can give her a stable home. Var remembered an aunt and uncle her
father spoke of occasionally and decided that they were her best hope.
Var sobered up and got to work tracking down old family friends
through her parent's network of informants. She learned that her aunt
and uncle once lived on Alderaan, but may have moved before the
destruction of the planet. She was led to Ord Mantell with the name
of a man who worked with her parents for several years. Var also
suspects she was tailed by one of Gor'vdon's operatives for at least
part of the trip.
Var is still having a very hard time facing her guilt over the loss of
her parents, as well as being responsible for her sister's safety.
She will snap and revert to bad behavior if she feels too pressured.
Var hates it when Rel assumes the role of authority figure and,
ironically, is apt to demonstrate her most stupid, stubborn,
irresponsible behavior when confronted by her sister. Nobody can push
Var's buttons like Rel, especially when Rel doesn't mean to do so.
Var is deliberately keeping information from Rel regarding Gor'vdon's
involvement in their parent's death, as well as his current pursuit
and intent to kill them both. She doesn't know how much Rel has
figured out on her own. Var worries if Rel knows the truth that she
will want to confront Gor'vdon and be killed as a result, and Var also
doesn't want Rel to live in fear for her life. Consequently, some of
Var's actions (such as getting rid of the ship) and her single-minded
determination to leave Rel with their aunt and uncle may seem bizarre
or mean to Rel. Var doesn't like how this has damaged Rel's opinion
of her, but she's used to being the family screw-up.
Var may act like Rel is pond scum, but she is completely devoted to
Rel's safety (as anybody who is around Var when Rel is threatened will
discover). All other loyalties and connections take a distant back
seat. Rel is the only family she has left, and family always comes
first. Var would rather die than admit that she secretly thinks Rel
is smarter than she is and admires her discipline.
Var's greatest fear is that her unreliable behavior will result in
Rel's death. Unfortunately, she finds the thought of this failure so
terrifying that she is driven to the same behavior that could destroy

Gender: F Age: 17
Species: Human Homeworld: Coruscant-Corellia Hyperspace Lane
Affiliation: Crew of the Viridian's Gambit
Description: 5'7", 127lbs. Long brown hair and teal-colored eyes.
Yanna dresses in technician jumpsuits and is rarely seen without her hydrospanner and sonic screwdriver.
Occupation: Starship Engineer
Connection with characters:
Born on her father's YT-1300 light freighter somewhere along the Coruscant-Corellian hyperspace lane,
Yanna was thrust into the life of a spacer from an early age. Never knowing her mother, Yanna was
raised by her father in the best way he knew how. Growing up amongst the stars, she learned the
value of a good mechanic and a quick wit. Yanna learned to fast-talk her way through Imperial pickets
by the time she was in her early teens, gaining her the reputation of a sort of "lucky charm" to have
along on smuggling runs. Usually up to her elbows with grease from the engine room, she never
leaned to be like the proper ladies that she sometimes saw at the starports in the Core worlds.
Openly friendly with the worst sort of smuggler scum in the Galaxy, Yanna could often be found
reading from the collection of datacard novels that she had collected over the years. Never one
for romances, she prefered the exciting tales of the Jedi Knights of the Old Republic--one day hoping
to have her chance to have an adventure of her own.
That day came all too soon when an Imperial boarding
crew discovered her collection. A firefight broke out between the Imperials and the crew of her father's ship,
who mistakenly believed that the Imps had found their contraband spice. In the resulting battle, the
crew managed to force the Imperials off the ship but they were caught trying to flee to hyperspace
by an Interdictor cruiser. Tossed into an escape pod by her father, Yanna could only watch as the
Imperials pounded the ship to scrap with their turbolasers. Eventually picked up by another smuggling
ship, Yanna has been drifting from one place to the next trading repair skills for passage. She hoped to
one day avenge the death of her father by bringing good and justice back into the Galaxy. Someday, she vowed, she was
going to be a Jedi Knight--just like in the stories.
More recently, Yanna has been serving as a crewman aboard the Viridian's Gambit as the ship's engineer.
Her blooming Force talents were tainted by the Dark Side of the Force while
attempting to assist Lim Res, and later Diyar, in a series of firefights on the Ghambeezi Drift Station.
Yanna is slowly succumbing to the seduction of the Dark Side during frequent periods of fear and
anger in her life.

Species: Human Homeworld: Chandrila
Affiliation: Screen Actors Guild
Weapon of choice: Her considerable acting skills
The part of Frida was played by: Ellen
Known character history:
A well known Holofilm star from the Core Worlds, Frida has been blacklisted by the Empire for "political deviancy"
and is currently wanted by the ISB for questioning. She has been traveling the Mid-Rim with the free-Wookiee Kilarrawarr
in the Wookiee's small scoutship to avoid the unpleasantness of an Imperial interrogation.
She made some hip movies as a hot young actress Pre-Empire, and then suffered through the Imperial censorship with
growing discontent. Frida got invited to do a Real holovid, with real acting, as
opposed to the usual propaganda. However, she knew she would be in a lot more trouble if it
had actually gotten completed and distributed. Still, Frida convinced the people interviewing
her about her role that she was still just a bubble-headed bimbo who couldn't possibly have
considered sedition! "Gee, mister, they just gave me a script, I didn't
actually read it in advance, I sure wouldn't have taken the job if I'd
known it'd be bad for my career, *bat bat*." She didn't stick around to
see if they really believed her, though.
Unfortunately, Frida is Not Good at keeping a low profile. Growning up as a child star, she is used to being a central figure
wherever she goes--in fact, she rather likes it. Frida dyed her hair, that was enough of a sacrifice to
being undercover as she was willing to go. If not for Kilarrawarr's natural tendency to avoid Imperial
entanglements, Frida would of been captured her first week away from Chandrilla.
