Rook Beroya
« on: October 31, 2018, 05:08:49 AM »

Rook was born on Mandalore, but her birth brought with it the death of her mother. It was a dangerous, uncertain time on Mandalore, with the rise of the so-called ‘New Mandalorians’ and  the balancing evil of the Death Watch. Rook’s father, Nam Beroya, took his Clan away from Mandalore in order to keep the old way, being warriors for honor, fortune and glory. For long centuries, Sith, Jedi, the Empire, the Republic, the Rebellion ... anyone with pretensions to rule the galaxy alternately courted and betrayed the Mandalorian Clans. By leaving Mandalore, Nam Beroya put some distance between his Clan and that miasma of betrayal.

Wound: 18    Strain: 14    Soak: 5

Clan Awaud spent a few years working in the Galactic Rim before they were ready build their Clan home at Arumorot.

Vlemoth station’s cold, rough terrain is home to wampas, as well as the Talz. Our allies, are usually gentle, kind hearted beings slow to anger.

Rook grew up on Vlemoth, befriending the Talz of the Gnaaz Clan. She despises the cowardly slavers who prey upon them, even more than she hates the bitter cold so prevalent upon her world. Fighting slavers pushed her early into combat training, and keeps her entire Clan sharp. Coming of age amongst a Clan who deeply values the heritage, courage and honor of their people, Rook deeply believes in the Resol’nare, the Code of Honor, and the traditional Mandalorian way of life.

She loves her Clan, and strives always to honor them and act in their best interests. She would rather die, than betray or harm them. Tied in with her love of Clan, is that deep, personal tie with family enshrined in the Resol’nare. Her father was the center of her world, and no more than her sister can she fully accept that he is gone. Whilst the blast that hit him was sufficient to vaporize him, Rook cannot let go of his helmet remaining behind. Why? How? It should have been locked onto his armor.

Given her strength and agility, had she pushed for it, Rook could have been raised to be a pure warrior. Startlingly intelligent, reckless and addicted to adrenaline as she is, she was carefully guided into a technician’s roll. Droids and Mehcanics are her area of expertise ... though she is still more than willing to handle the physical side of a fight. She prefers proper artillery weapons, but if she can’t have that, a blaster and vibroblade will do nicely. Rook serves her Clan as their chief Mechanic; she is not the oldest or most experienced technician they have, but she has a way with machines (especially Droids) rarely seen. Despite her deep passion for Droids, she has promised herself to learn the secrets of forging Mandalorian Armor. Someday, she will see her entire Clan properly outfitted in the classical gear powerful enough to challenge even a Force user.

She does not hate Force Users; on the whole, they are deeply spiritual creatures even as the Mandalorians are. But the Mandalorian Clans have been used by both Sith and Jedi. They even had a Jedi presume to replace the true Mandalor and his helmet via a Black Lightsaber. To Rook, it is inconceivable that a person could fully follow two religions, two codes of honor, two entire ways of life in equal degree. She hopes to someday help her people find the Helmet, and restore a true Mandalor. Yet she also fears it; having one man to whom all Clans swear fealty has made it so easy for the Clans to be controlled and usurped in the past.

Her sister’s second, Kad Solus, is an amazing and brilliant warrior. Like Rook herself, he is drawn to risk and glory; the two are a dangerous combination if restraint or common sense is desired. Or at the tavern, when visiting Loremaster Terroch. Vera is the necessary balance, the steely-eyed general who keeps both Rook’s wild ideas and Kad’s reckless courage in check. Though privately Rook sometimes chafes at how very level-headed Vera is, Kad is the only one to ever see any sign of it. She can let him see it, because his loyalty to Vera is absolute, as her own is. She suspects, now and again, that he has feelings for her. He’s a brave warrior, and it amuses her a bit that he’s been cautious about approaching her. But then ... He would have Vera to deal with. Her second best friend amongst the Clan is Jerrach. A young warrior, talented, Rook hopes he’ll win Vera’s heart and hand, softening the coldness that has been Vera’s hallmark since their father’s death.

Now, the concerns of the wider galaxy has swept her Clan up with it. She yearns to test herself, both her courage, and her intellect. Whilst she has no particular faith that the current galactic government will be any better than the last, she is finding her father’s careful neutrality hard to maintain in the face of those who have faced the cruelty of the Empire (and it’s remnant) more directly.
