Gobi Vao

A shrewd and experienced criminal, longtime tool of spice-trading slavers

0 · 273 views · located in Nar Shaddaa

a character in “Star Wars Old Republic: Outbreak”, as played by kidcopious


Name: Gobi Vao
Age: 46
Species: Twi'lek
Occupation: Bodyguard, Go-Between, Inventory Control
Affiliation: formerly empoyed by the Hutt Cartel
Appearance: A scarred Twi'lek with a jaded expression, dressed in drab clothing and a singed and oil-stained grey cloak.
Personality: Doesn't say much. Cynical, decisive and ruthless.

Bio: Vao became mixed up with slavers at a young age, acting as an errand boy for the Hutts since his early teens. He was the perfect combination of "expendable" and "fearless" to move up the ladder of the underworld, and soon found himself personally protecting the Hutts' interests, flying along with shipments of ryll, glitterstim, illegal guns and slave girls, delivering the goods safely between the pleasure houses and spice dens that served as his master's collective front.
Once, a bloody clash with a rival sydicate left his body a shattered wreck. One of the enemy had cleaved his skull with a concussion knife and for a time it seemed he had finally attained the freedom of death. The kindness of his masters saw his shattered bones put together again, his head and neck are still ringed with steel prosthetics to reinforce the bones, much to the dismay of various people who have elected to punch his fare bare-handed in the intervening years. He was recently responsible for the loss of a spice shipment and has not been in contact with his employer since. He knows the Hutts won't be willing to laugh it off, so he's looking for a quick exit.

Weaponry: a well-worn traditional dagger from Ryloth, the lylek-shell handle worn pale green by years of loving use. An old civilian-grade holdout blaster is stuck in the back of his belt, but the near-spent energy cell is only good for another shot or two.

Other: Having spent a good deal of time in medical wards, he knows his way around a typical medbay, can change an IV or dressing, and the straightness of his stitching is evident in a timeline of old scars on his body. Apart from clothes and weaponry, his possessions amount to very little. Credits worth a hot meal or two, a green rock threaded on a string from the Floating Gardens of his home planet, and a tiny vial of spice.


So begins...
