Alright, I'm always open for a new game. I'd like to post two characters, if no one minds.
Name: Katani Chass (Pronounced Kass)
Age: 47, though he appears much younger, he recieved some medical "upgrades" after his experiences with the Emperor's Son, Grand Admiral Cracken, and the Crimson Star. He also has a computer uplink implant on the side of his head.
Appearance: Short cut, greying hair, which is understandable, given all he's been through. He receieved one minor scar on the right side of his nose at the battle of Kuat, but other than that, his looks are pristine, almost attractive, if it weren't for the metal conglomeration sticking slightly out, just behind his right ear.
Background: (All right, first off, some of this may not necessarily happen, so in the case of any of the Cantia regulars showing up, I'm going to say that now. This is an alternate ending to the future of the cantina thread, not what will necessarily happen, ok? And to the rest of you, yes, this will be as confusing as it sounds.
Katani was born as a noble on Kuat. Fortunately for him, he was almost immediately taken up to one of the obital platforms, where he began his personal defense and self preparation courses, in order to be fit to rule Kuat. Unfortunately for Katani, there was someone who stood in his way. Deac Starkiller, the only person to earn the undying emnity of the Kuat Drive Yards throne in quite a while. Well, when he was properly prepared, at a good age, and when he'd been outfitted with about twenty Noghri, Katani made his way to a particular cantina on Tatooine, where he knew Deac was. He introduced himself, and his Noghri, and in short got his butt kicked. After breaking himself out of his temporary confinement, he learned of Grand Admiral Cracken's rampaging about the galaxy. Well, being the current leader of the Kuati's, he knew where they would be meeting, in case of tragic event such as these. And, after leaving a small surprise behind for Cracken when he arrived at Kuat, he headed off to the planet Nhdaa'rr, in the unkown regions, to rendevouz with a secret (almost) R&D facility there, and to relocate the people of Kuat. When he arrived, he was told of the existence of a very powerful weapon, the Conqueror (whose specs are too numerous to list here, and which is really irrelevant, if you must know, head on over to XWA and check out Cantina Six: Return of the Dead Guy.) Well, he needed a computer uplink interface implanted into his mind in order to operate the Conqueror, and so he was prepped for surgery. But, just before the surgery was to take place, Neo-Imperial spies, sent by Cracken, replaced the surgery team. Then, they implanted the uplink, as well as a minor mind control device that would influence his actions towards the Neo-Imperialist way of thinking when he was linked to a computer. Well, it turns out he might not have been the best choice for a mind control device, because it was found that the linkage to the Conqueror's computer mind was making him incredibly unstable. On the side of murderous. After wiping out the entire planet, as well as the orbiting defense fleet during a training run, he jumped into the Kuat system and presented himself to Cracken as a gift, under one condition: he be given work to do. Cracken agreed, and sent him off to a minor system. Well, local inhabitants didn't much like it when he destoyed their planet, and began yelling at him. This caused a complete mental breakdown, and Katani began a killing rampage, traversing the galaxy destroying planets and fleets at a whim. Finally, he returns to Kuat just in time for the "Big Battle." Well, thankfully, all civilians have evacuated the system (for the purpose of continuity) and all that remains are the myriad of battleships from both sides. Well, Katani, in his madness, begins firing on both sides, damaging both New Republic and Neo-Imperial. A few stray shots even hit the Crimson Star itself. Well, Cracken doesn't take kindly to this, and decides to end the nuisance that is Katani Chass, by firing a small amount of antimatter at him. The anitmatter is almost dodged by Katani, but still destroys the magnetic railgun, the true strength. Without it, the Conqueror was nothing. After this of course, Katani's world completely collapsed, taking with it his perception of reality. He still can't give an accurate account as to what happened at the Battle of Kuat after the disabling of the Conqueror. Fortunately, mental therapy has been like bacta for his mind, and he is mostly healthy now, though occasionally prone to breakdowns. While these can be quite dangerous, a small dose of valium usually calms him perfectly. That's why he always carries a pouch that reads: "In case of murderous outrage, feed me this."
Well, there's Katani. Like I said, the part after the destruction of the Kuati fleet is all an alternate ending of the Cantina thread. Since that's really long, and my hands are starting to hurt, I'm off to bed now. I'll post the other character (Amada Horn, daughter of Valin Horn, son of Corran) later.
