Personal History

Kane has been actively working for the Rebel Alliance since his ship was repossessed by the Imperials 3 years ago (due to smuggling charges and non-payment of taxes). He managed to bribe his way out of a prison sentence, but he lost everything in the process, and he has been ground-pounding for the Rebels for a while (due to a shortage of ships). As the campaign begins, he has been assigned to pilot an old, battered, but ostensibly luxury yacht to Coruscant as the pilot for a "diplomatic mission from the Bilbringi system."

Life Events

Relationships

The following quotes are basically what would happen if someone injected Kane with a truth serum and asked about his crew. They are non-cannon, but otherwise sincere.

Venn

You know, back when I was doing my stint as a ground-pounder, I used to think that anybody above the rank of… say, Sergeant… was likely to be the most arrogant, self-important stuffed shirt you could ever get assigned to. But all of that changed when I met Venn Tyree. You see, working with Venn made me realize that no matter how bad the chain-of-command might seem at times, when you get right down to it… politicians are much worse.

But that's not to say the man's completely useless. In fact, every now and then, he surprises me by pulling these advanced skills completely out of nowhere. And I don't mean skills like "knowing which fork to use to stab an appropriations bill." I mean actually useful skills. Stick-fighting! Battle tactics! Theoretical physics as applied to alien star drives! Where is he getting this stuff!?

The guy even seems, on closer inspection, to have a sense of humor. Which is kind of sad, because it speaks to the man he probably was before somebody put him in charge of something.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I trust his intentions. His judgement, on the other hand… ehhh. *hand wobble* Depends on the situation. He's probably more adaptable than I give him credit for, considering he started this fight in the freaking Senate, of all places. But drop him into a situation where everybody's clearly in over their heads, and he's too proud to admit it. Let alone ask for suggestions.

He's standing right behind me, isn't he?

Tam

Oh, man. This guy. I'd heard the rumors about Storm Trooper conditioning, of course. We all have. I guess it makes it a little easier to pull the trigger if you dehumanize the enemy. This time, we just got lucky and the enemy's already gone ahead and done it for us. Or so they say.

But this guy? This guy is for real. And I'm pretty sure when they performed the operation to remove his personality, they also surgically attached his lips to the Commander's…

Ah, but you know what? That was before I worked with him on the ground. On the ground, Tam Minerva is skilled, tough, cunning, and damned if he doesn't follow orders.

I mean, imagine my ass in the field, telling a StormTrooper what to do. Maybe I don't like the look of how captivated he seems by this weird alien thing in the shadows. I tell him to back up, nothin' happens. I make it an order, and the bastard backs up!

Then the lift breaks my goddamned fingers. So out of the blue, just to lighten the mood, I ask Tam if he's got any painkillers. Doesn't say a word, just marches over to me, left right left right, and hands over his fancy StormTrooper combat drugs. Sir yes sir. Just like that. And then, of course, he gets to throw my sorry ass on the cart when the drugs wear off and the crash hits me.

He had every right to laugh at me, you know. Bastard kept his mouth shut. The fucker.

I'll say this, though, I'm glad he's on our side. But it sorta makes me wonder… what would have happened if they'd assigned him to guard Palpatine instead?

Orden

People are weird. That's just the way it is. Men. Women. Bug-eyed monsters from Roche. We all have our own little quirks. And sometimes those quirks pile up in weird and unusual ways. It's nothing new. And it's always gonna be that way.

I'm mentioning this because it provides important context.

Amanha Orden. Is FUCKING INSANE.

Brilliant, but insane.

She will blow up your house.

Sidara

MAN, I'm glad I'm not a regular enlisted…

Rourke

Nice. Nice… I'd hit it…

Hey, don't you get any ideas, though. Rourke's a classy girl, you hear me? A real sweetheart, too. Don't you forget it.

On a good day, I can get her to stifle a laugh behind the Commander's back. That's the best a scumbag like me can ask for, right?

Oh, if this were a bad holo…

Wen

Wen, you sneaky bastard! I love this guy! Wen's got tricks even I don't know about! He's pretty good in the field, too. There's nobody I'd rather have by my side in a battle. Or better yet, sneaking up on the enemy!

Yeah, I gave him the money. I wanted to see what would happen.

Shut up.

Starfall

Fuck yeah! Starfall knows what's up! I don't know how she stays so upbeat after everything we've been through, but man I'm glad to have her around. Her jokes keep me sane on a bad day. I'm a little annoyed she didn't even blush, though, when Davin asked if we were a thing. Was she just playing it cool? Or am I losing my touch?

Man, though, I tell ya. Me, Starfall and Wen gotta go crazy on shore leave one of these days. Figures that the first planet we come to with a decent economy, the Commander needs to get all paranoid and distracted. All droppin' conflicting orders and shit. All wanderin' off leaving me in charge. So, naturally, ol' Kane's gotta pick up the pieces. Gotta keep somebody on the stupid ship all the stupid time…

Wait a minute.

Tam checked in!

HEY GUYS! GUYS!

Krin

Ah, dear Verena. I remember when the clouds parted to reveal her statuesque form. The warmth from her eyes melted the very snows of Hoth, to the point where the Rebels had no choice but to build a hangar bay around her, so as to keep their presence on the world a secret.

She speaks, and through the sheer persuasiveness of her honeyed words, the pallets move through the air of their own accord! She reaches up into the skies and pulls down comets! (Were it not for that blastedly inefficient freezer, I'm sure it would have been much larger when she finally showed it to me.) When word of the destruction of Alderaan reached her ears, it is said that she shed a single tear, at which point the Death Star exploded!

Too soon?

Right, sorry. Krin is a weird, fun girl with enough imagination and energy to not only put up with my bullshit, but bounce back everything I throw at her. I wouldn't have minded helping her work off some of that excess energy, if you know what I mean, but she didn't seem to take a hint. Eh, maybe I shoulda just spelled it out for her… what's the worst she coulda said?

Yeah, don't answer that.

You can't.

Droidfaced Twi'Lek

And speaking of life imitating a bad holo… well, you know. The Twi'Lek incident. Yeah, yeah, I know. It's a horrible unfair stereotype and all that. The lascivious Twi'Lek holding our hero at gunpoint. But she was seriously pretty hot, and I'm not made of stone.

She might be, though… or at least that's what I was thinking until Lars got back. Then I saw a glimmer in her eyes, just for a split second. Hope? Relief? Maybe they're a couple. Or, maybe they were just in a hell of a lot more danger than I thought they were, and this is how she deals with stress. I dunno.

When I tried to turn on the charm, she changed what she was aiming at. Can't say I blame her. In the end, she didn't stun my balls off, and I kept non-violently riffing my predicament right up until I ran out of material. It's too bad that happened at the 5 minute mark, but she was seriously giving me nothing to work with.

Under the circumstances, I think I made the best I could out of a bad situation. I wonder if our paths will cross again…

Yeah. I need to get off this ship for a while.
