And coming in at the last minute!
Seriyn Vale "Seri"
: Female Human
: mainly Noble with some scoundrel
: Face, deception, stealth, pilot, and stun/ion damage focus instead of leathal.
Quick, comedic wit/smart-ass
Doesn't think too far ahead
The characters that carry a big gun, have supernatural powers, or are super-geniuses are all well and good - But they've got nothing compared to the lowly conartist that got away. This character is the used-speeder conwoman who will rip you off at the pazaak table and leave you hanging in a dark alley without a credit in the world. She is a thief in every imaginable way, a smoother talker then the best spiked Corellian ale, and ambitious enough with get-rich quick schemes to put a hutt to shame. Unofficially she does have a heart of gold - fool's gold maybe, but still gold - just don't let wind of that lie escape into the public realm, she has a reputation to protect!
Where I see her is the official leader of any mercenary part of the troope - and the invaluable smuggler that makes infiltration possible overall. She's the one that does the talking and getting the missions. Out for fame, glory, the almighty credit, and fun (like all rich play boys and girls), she would be the smart-ass glue that holds the team together to keep accepting missions from the Republic. Not a fighter herself, and certainly not a fair fighter (you can always find her hiding behind something bigger when the blaster bolts start flying), she would pay, con, and drag the other players along for the high-speed adventure by whatever means she can. She would be the likely contact in the cantina for the rest of the group - after stealing their drinking credits over a game a pazaak.
OOC aspects: This character is centered around conversations, stealth, and tickery and not so much combat. Her largest strength is encouraging party banter and fun and keeping everyone on the same page. She also serves as comic relief. She can also act as the groups moral center - might not be a good moral center when it comes to lying, thieving, etc. - but she opposes killing living beings quite drastically (to the point she won't use standard leathal weapons), a large reason why she's making her fame and fortune in the war with the Republic side. She's a staunch defender of personal choice, freedom, luxury, and the criminal underworld.
