Name: Dash Riprock
Race: Human
Occupation: Captain in Republic Special Forces (Formerly: Smuggler)
Hellion Status: Ally, Hellion 0
Notable Skills: Piloting, Outer Rim (Knowledge), Mechanics

Brief Dossier: Coming of age at the start of the Clone Wars, Riprock acted in concert with agents of the Old Republic. Working alongside young Jedi, Smugglers, Thieves, and Criminals, the child of the Outer Rim acted as the guide and pilot to a number of excursions against the Separatists. When the Republic became the Empire, Riprock was somewhat ambivalent at first, not seeing much of a difference between the two. As the years went by and he lost touch with former friends who became enemies of state, he began to take on a different opinion. Over the years he and his ship, The Aeon Mallard, have acted as a harrying force and covert operative ship.

Sometime before the end of the Empire, Riprock suffered a serious injury at the hands of a lightsaber-wielding agent of the Empire. Though he survived the near-fatal attack, he was left with a need for cybernetic grafts to his face, eyes, and upper chest. As a result he constantly wears a visor that provides enhanced vision and a breathing mask that controls his oxygen, but at the expense of a normal appearance.

He acts now as the Hellion's main pilot and link with Admiral Ackbar and Republic Command who treat the Hellions' existence as a secret.

Name: Switch
Race: Droid (Unique)
Occupation: Free Agent (?) - Formerly Imperial Special Weapons Division
Hellion Status: Tentative Ally
Notable Skills: Computers, All Knowledges, Remote Hacking abilities

Brief Dossier: A secret weapon of Emperor Palpantine, "Switch" as he refers to himself, is a mysterious being. Discovered by happenstance by Kesvo and Tal during their hunt for information on Skye City, Switch speaks as the voice for independently-thinking Droids on Skye City. His chassis appears both unique and damaged, a giant hole in his right side seems to forever mark him. His tendency to refer to organic beings as 'meatbags' and in a dismissive manner caused the Hellions to regard him as a rogue element they were uncertain to deal with.

Desperate times drove to desperate measures, however, and after Switch displayed his ability to control droids remotely (most specifically, Kled's renovated Imperial Probe droids), the Hellions and he entered into a compact.

Switch and the team have provided aid to one another several times, though Venn's recognition of the marking on his chassis brought to attention that Switch was once a weapon of Emperor Palpantine's. His goals and motivations are not yet clear, though it's been made apparent he doesn't mind killing a person or two to get what he wants.

Name: Aris Shen
Race: Pantoran
Occupation: Crime Lord
Hellion Status: Ally
Notable Skills: Deception, Ranged Light, Streetwise

Brief Dossier: Formerly a pawn of her father, Arend Shen, Aris turned against her father at the urging of the Hellions after they were doublecrossed by the elder Pantoran. Holding a grudge against the manipulative plotter for forcing her into a marriage with the crime lord of Skye City, Vorse Tabarith, Aris shot and killed Arend when it was clear he'd never leave her to her freedom and didn't feel she had 'what it took' to survive in the galaxy on her own.

Taking up a more ruthless and ambitious outlook on life, she convinced her husband to bring her own as a full-time partner in his empire on Skye City. She was saved from certain death by Tal's heroics, though her sights are set on returning back to Skye - the very place she had longed to escape for so long - and reinstating herself as a force to be reckoned with in the entire Czerka Sector.

Name: Xizor
Race: Falleen
Occupation: Vigo of the Black Sun
Hellion Status: Antagonist
Notable Skills: Deception, Charm, Leadership, Resilience

Brief Dossier: Born a wealthy scion of one of the great families on Falleen, Xizor outwardly is the head of Xizor Transport Systems. A multi-triollionaire, Xizor is considered one of the wealthiest individuals in the entire Galaxy. While to the public eye Xizor is a philanthropist, playboy, and politician who has a vested interest in Falleen influence and power in the galaxy, behind closed doors he is a vicious and ruthless predator.

Constantly accompanied by the ice-blonde bodyguard Guri, Xizor has taken control of the powerful Black Sun Syndicate. While some in the criminal underworld know Xizor to be the Vigo of the galaxy-spanning organization, only the Hellions have discovered that Xizor is currently in league with the Imperial Remnant.

Name: Kled
Race: Duros
Occupation: None - Formerly, Hacker and Mechanic of Czerka
Hellion Status: Ally
Notable Skills: Computers, Mechanics

Brief Dossier: Not much is known about the hermit Duros named Kled. He has shown a remarkable talent for utilizing computers and droids and for mechanical genius. He was discovered by Venn shortly after the Hellion's arrival on Skye City as a possible aid in their scheme to steal the Star of Kepler. Kled was notably behind a great deal of security and several reprogrammed Imperial Probe droids that he had re-purposed a security guards in his secret warehouse.

In exchange for passage off Skye City (which he desperately wanted for some unknown reason), Kled agreed to help the Hellions by preparing data spikes, equipment, and acting as an accomplice to their crime. They made extensive use of his home as a base of operations once Arend Shen's treachery was revealed.

Currently he has been acting as an assistant to Riprock during their preparation for a mission to Foundry Four, with Kled stating that the Captain seems to have some plans for him.

...Which makes him very, very nervous.

Name: Kathlo the Hutt
Race: Hutt
Occupation: Crime Lord
Hellion Status: Former Employer of Kesvo, now unknown
Notable Skills: Charm, Discipline, Cool, Coercion

Brief Dossier: Smaller physically than most other Hutts, it would be a mistake to think Kathlo as weak. The soft-spoken Hutt has a deep thirst for knowledge and holds the ideal that knowledge is power. He controls several dozen star ports in the Outer Rim and wields his influence like a scalpel, rather than a club. He had recently come to Skye City in the want to purchase the Star of Kepler and resell it to more lucrative parties in Hutt Space. Having been foiled of his primary purpose, he has turned to his secondary in taking control of the criminal element of Skye City.

Kesvo had become employed by Kathlo during the first episode of the campaign. With her apparent death during the Arms Deal, Kathlo is not currently looking for her. Though should he learn she had survived the fatal encounter it is likely he will want an explanation.

Dharak Zhane

Name: Dharak Zhane
Race: Human
Occupation: Bounty Hunter
Hellion Status: Antagonist
Notable Skills: Cool, Ranged Heavy, Ranged Light, Melee, Brawl, Stealth

Brief Dossier: One of the more infamous bounty hunters in the Outer Rim, Dharak Zhane's a man who commands respect and fear from other agents of the underworld. He is said to demand a high bounty and not tolerate rivals to his hunts. His hammerhead helmet is as much a callsign as it is a warning, and the rustic good 'ol boy drawl that comes from within it has a no-nonsense approach to most matters.

Zhane has crossed paths with Tal on a number of occasions, never able to quite put the last shot in him to put him down. Zhane has hunted the former Imperial Sergeant through half the galaxy, but Tal has so far managed to be one step ahead. Whether that trend continues remains to be seen, and it's yet been determined if Zhane is willing to kill whoever gets in his way to get his mark.

His last known position was as Kathlo the Hutt's enforcer on Skye City.

Name: Jomol Xemo
Race: Human
Occupation: Baron Administrator of Skye City for Czerka Corporation
Hellion Status: Former Employer of Ashley, now unknown.
Notable Skills: Cool, Negotiation

Brief Dossier: Xemo has been running Skye City for the last few years. During the Galactic Civil War Xemo was an independent slicer and mercenary, being only a recent agent of Czerka. An avid fan of the Skye City Grand Prix and racing in general, Xemo enthusiastically offered Ashley a position in Czerka after his victory. Though he was supportive and quite generous with his offer to the Pantoran pilot, the young man skipped town after the Arms Deal was handled.

Not much else is known about Xemo or his ambitions. The fact that he rose so quickly to prominence in the mega-corporation of Czerka may give some insight into his ability, however.

Name: Zekra Fol
Race: Human
Occupation: Agent for the Imperial Service Bureau
Hellion Status: Antagonist
Notable Skills: Deception, Perception, Stealth

Brief Dossier: Not much is known of Zekra Fol. Operating as a scouter for ORMEC (Outer Rim Mining Exploratory Corporation), Zekra approached Kesvo with apparent knowledge of her and her activities. Having insight into the team (though not all of their members), Zekra blackmailed Kes into assisting her with trafficking information to Kathlo the Hutt.

As the Hellions departed Skye City Zekra executed the last of her orders. While her mission was a success, the Imperial Remnant suffered a deep setback in the region. Given that the Hellions has all gone missing, she will no doubt try to find more about the rogue element.

Name: Elaiza
Race: Human
Occupation: Former Jedi Knight
Hellion Status: Antagonist
Notable Skills: Deception, Stealth, Force Powers

Brief Dossier: Elaiza had been one of the bidders for the Star of Kepler on Skye City. Apparently sharing the desire for the gem, she shadowed the Hellions as they infiltrated the Figgs and Associates Museum. Sensing the moral ambiguity in the group after finding the bodies of slain security guards, Elaiza refused to ally herself with the Hellions. Entering into a stand-off for the Corusca Gem that Elaiza felt was vitally needed to restore her lightsaber and her efforts to defend the galaxy, the Hellions escaped quickly after disabling her lightsaber.

Venn and Ashley had both sensed the conflict in the older Jedi woman. With her weapon disabled, it's unclear if Elaiza will disappear into the shadows or if Destiny will draw the two groups across each-other once again.
