Type: Brash Pilot
Dark Side Points:
Equipment: Blaster pistol (4D), Rebel uniform, medpac, vacuum suit, 1,000 credits
Background: You thought you’d never get off that hick planet! Ever since you were a kid, you’ve read about starships and generals and heroic battles. Ever since you can remember, you’ve wanted to be a fighter pilot. Your parents wanted you to be a farmer (or a lawyer, or a doctor, or a miner — who cares which?). But the Imperial Naval Academy has been your goal since the first time you heard of it!
Well, with this war on, it doesn’t look like you’ll ever get to the Academy — nor do you want to. When the Empire occupied your planet, everything fell to pieces. Friends and neighbors are dead. But you’ve got your chance to be a pilot! Sometimes things look pretty grim for the Rebellion — but you’ve got a hunch that your story is just beginning!
Personality: Enthusiastic, loyal, energetic and committed. You tend to get overly excited on a regular basis. You also tend to brag when sometimes you’d be better off keeping your opinions to yourself.
Objectives: You want to be the best pilot in the Alliance! You dream about someday topping that Skywalker kid — all he did was get a lucky shot! You know you could have made that shot without a targeting computer … blindfolded!
A Quote: “Heck, that flying wasn’t so fancy! Back home, I used to outmaneuver XP-38s with my old Mobquet landspeeder!”
Connection With Characters: A senatorial or retired Imperial captain might have sponsored you for the Naval Academy. Almost anyone might be a brother or sister.
