Three characters from the Guns of Nova Rain are returning, along with three new characters.
Anexa Panteer grew up as a member of the Alderaanian nobility. With the comforts that came with her family’s money, she was free to engage in whatever pursuit attracted her fancy at any given moment. It was during her teenage years that Anexa realized she could perform extraordinary feats of athleticism without much training. Consulting with some trusted family historians and advisers, she determined that she was calling on the Force. She secretly funded several expeditions in search of Jedi artifacts and relics to learn more about her abilities.
While Anexa was away chasing down a lead on a Jedi artifact, the Death Star destroyed Alderaan. Anexa felt her friends, her colleagues, and her family die in an instant. Initially paralyzed by grief, Anexa recovered and threw herself at becoming a Jedi. She found a holocron and learned to harness the power of the Force to seek Justice against the Empire. Hearing that her fellow survivor, Princess Organa, was a member of the Rebel Alliance along with many other orphans of Alderaan, Anexa joined the Rebellion.
Femi-Ka-Korrot was a student in one of the Jedi Chapter Houses in the Outer Rim when the Clone Wars began. He was a puzzle to his masters; strong in the Force but was a problem student. It's not that he was lazy, it simply was that he had little interest in the full curriculum of his training. Femi liked making things, high tech things; possibly a side effect of his youth on the relatively low-tech world of Cerea. He'd spend all the time he could neglecting his other studies and instead fidgeting with computers and mechanical items around the Chapter House. His performance in physical tests were subpar, and his skill with a lightsaber was barely sufficient.
When no master came forward willing to teach him formally, Femi-Ka-Korrot was discharged from the Jedi Order and assigned to the Jedi Explorer Corps. This actually was fine with Femi; now he could pursue his interests in relative peace. Then the Clone Wars ended and the Empire rose. Suddenly, he and his fellow Corpsmen were hunted down by the Empire and either killed or pressed into service. Femi and his corpsman Bayala Orest outran the Empire for almost a decade, living in the Outer Rim as transient workers, trading their technical skill for passage on freighters or berths on space stations. Eventually the Empire found them, and Bayala was captured. With no chance of rescuing her, Femi was forced to run.
Surviving on his own for the next ten years, Femi relied on his own skill and expertise. The Empire had done a very good job of killing off the Jedi Order and discrediting them. They also did a good job oppressing the galactic populace, something that he couldn't abide. Femi wants to use his talents and discoveries to make the galaxy a better place, but first someone has to fix the galaxy and get rid of the Empire. Femi eventually got in contact with the Rebel Alliance to offer his mechanical services. Since joining, he's been transfered to a Special Forces squad to go on a very important recovery mission.
Features: Artisan and Soresu Defender. High Intellect, high Mechanics. Has Imbue Item and a small smattering of Lightsaber talents. Be sure to use Imbue Item on self or allies to grant serious benefits. Fights with a lightsaber.
Meteo Qulon was raised on Balmorra, where she was expected to follow the family tradition and join the army. Even before the Empire, the Qulons have served in the Balmorran military for generations. There were no indications that Meteo would be any different, she was tough and pushed herself to be in the best physical shape possible. She never backed down from a challenge, and seemed to soak up her father’s urging to always win, and always prevail. She would get into fights at the Academy, which her father would beam at when she found out she won. The reason Meteo fought seemed to escape him, however; Meteo got into fights protecting non-human classmates from human bullies.
The night before Meteo was to report for Stormtrooper Basic Training, one of her classmates told her that he made contact with the Rebel Alliance, and he was leaving to join them. Knowing that many of her alien friends were doing the same, and that her training class would include many of the bullies she beat up over the years, she left Balmorra to join the Alliance.
Koron “Kory” Vida grew up on Ryloth where he watched the Empire turn a blind eye to the Hutts slave trade. When most of his family was sold into slavery by his corrupt uncle, Kory stowed away on a freighter to escape a similar fate. His youthful charm endeared him to the captain when he was discovered, and he accompanied the Captain for a few years, growing up on the Outer Rim spacelanes.
Kory had waking dreams of an orange fiery bird, but never thought much of it. Eventually, Kory heard about the Rebel Alliance and saw their emblem and knew it was no coincidence. He joined the Alliance as an infantry trooper and due to his size, natural charisma, and enthusiasm became the favored mascot and kid brother
of every unit he was assigned to. Kory is used to this “beloved” status he has with his team, even though everyone still treats him like a kid. It’s certainly better than the alternative.
Kory is seen as a good-luck charm in many regards. His personnel file is littered with instances of unbelievable survival and remarkable luck. Kory gets flashes of things to come, strong hunches of danger and has uncanny luck. He knows when attacks are coming, been in explosions that miraculously left him unscathed, and his teammates proclaim that they perform better when he’s in the field with them. Whether by luck, circumstance, or something more, the Force is apparently with Kory.
With the departure of two of his old squadmates, Kory is enjoying the fact that he's now a squad "veteran", even though he's still happy to take on the role of "favored mascot".
Features: Force Sensitive Emergent/Sharpshooter with the Foresee Force power. Able to enhance the Initiative Rolls of self and allies. Fights with a blaster rifle.
