Fist of the Empire

What Has Gone Before
Character Backstory Framework

The story opens in the slums of Mos Eisley on the Outer Rim world of Tatooine, where agents of the Black Sun cartel — the characters — are on a mission to deliver arms to unknown entities. This deal, if completed, will weaken Hutt influence in several mid rim worlds.

Due to their cover, these agents may, if they choose, steal the ship they have been issued and make their own way through the galaxy; however, they have already committed to the Black Sun and violated Hutt security. Theirs will be a dangerous life of staying in motion; further, they have very few resources to draw on.

Dramatis Personae

Garnac the Butcher, a Trandoshan mercenary and arms dealer.

Kaelo Vullo, a Zabrak enforcer for the Hutt cartel.

T'ora Thekk, a Twi’lek sergeant for the Black Sun and direct superior of the characters.

Tereb, a Bothan information merchant and acquaintance of the Negotiator, General Crewman or Soldier (in that order).
