Background

Argo Zur was borne on the Iridonian colony world of Feldrona just over 21 years ago. His family used to be proud of the fact that the force ran strong in the family, and that the brother of his grandfather, Ereno Zur, was a Jedi Knight. Ereno had his fill of war after serving as a general in the Clone Wars, and when age finally caught up with him and he was horribly wounded in battle the Jedi order approved his request to be allowed to retire. His injuries were severe and he was not expected to live long.

After retiring from active service Ereno headed back to the roots and before the end he reconnected with his family. His brother had passed away but he found that his brother had several children, and many grand-children. Ereno took great delight in becoming a part of the family again after all those years.

Ereno did not keep in contact with the Jedi order, but he felt a great disturbance in the force when the infamous Order 66 was given and the clones turned on the Jedi.

Ereno had noticed the potential in the young Argo Zur, and early on determined that he was force-sensetive. He was disillusioned with the Jedi order at the time and decided not to send the boy to Coruscant to be trained. Instead he taught the boy some of the things he thought the young boy was ready to learn himself.

Like many young Zabrak Argo was considered quite hotheaded and belligerent, which bothered the old Ereno, since he knew how hard it could be for an irrational and angry youth to be seduced by the dark side. Ereno tried his best to teach the young boy discipline, but it was not until he started training the boy in the Tae-Jitsu martial art that the young Zabrak started showing self-control and restraint.

Ereno did not teach his young charge much about the Jedi, and his training was far from as intense as the training Jedi Padawans received. He determined that the force was fairly strong with young Argo. He had left his old lightsaber behind when he left the Jedi order, and did not teach his pupil how to create one, training him with traditional Zabrak swords instead in the Soresu-style, which he felt was the best style to protect the user and others. Argo eventually incorporated the Jar'Kai style into his fighting, opting to fight with two short and slightly curved Zabrak swords.

As time passed Argo developed into a fine young Zabrak. When he was 12 years old Ereno passed away peacefully in his sleep. At first Argo kept up with his training, but soon began to feel more and more lost without the guidance of the old Zabrak. When a young Gran scholar by the name of Gurian came to Feldrona seven years later looking for the Jedi Knight Argo‘s interest in the Force and his potential was rekindled.

Gurian was horrified with how the Jedi order had been villified and was looking for information and people that could help him document the story and tell him the truth. His enthusiasm rekindled some longing in Argo to know more about his mentor and the Jedi order, and in the end he traveled from Feldrona with the scholar, vowing to keep him safe in his dangerous line of work.

The pair traveled around a bit in Gurian's banged-up old HWK-290 freighter. On their travels they visited the mystical planet of Dathomir. They landed in a large Zabrak village and Gurian got permission to visit the witches. Alone. He was gone for several days. Argo spent the days in the village, sparring with the local men and swapping stories.

As they were leaving Argo was approached by a Zabrak woman who begged him to take her son with him when they left the planet. She told Argo she could sense he was a good person, and also that there was something special about him. She sensed the same in her own son, and feared he would either be killed in the brutal contests the older Zabraks partook in, or claimed by the witches for what ever dark purposes. Argo had sparred with the lanky youth several times, and felt a connection to the boy. Despite Gurian warning that this might upset their relationship with the witches Argo took the boy and his pet tusk-cat on board, promising his mother to keep him safe and teach him what he had learned from his great-uncle.

The three men traveled together for a while, until one day when they were nosing around on Corellia, asking questions and looking for data. Gurian went out on his own to meet with a contact and never returned to their rented apartment. Argo went looking for him and found police investigating how Gurian fell to his death from the edge of a busy city street. After a cursory investigation the authorities claimed his death was an accident but Argo found that hard to belief and he decided not to return to Gurian's ship, fearing an ambush.

In the end he decided to contact a colleague of Gurian, the scholar Hethan Romund. She welcomed his comm-call and asked him to meet her. When Argo and his young charge arrived to the location specified Hethen was not there. Soon after he received a signal from her asking for help...

Motivation

Ambition: Become a Jedi Knight

Argo is determined to become a Jedi Knight like his old mentor, and to restore the order to it's proper place.

Morality

Morality: 50

Emotional Strength: Bravery
Emotional Weakness: Anger

Never slow to put his life on the line, Argo is compassionate about keeping his weaker allies safe, no matter the personal cost to himself. Argo is most prone to anger when his companions are put at risk when he feels that he could conceivably have saved them. Or that he should have been able to save them. His former mentor tried to teach him to let go of his rage, but he is having a hard time doing that.

Description

Argo Zur is a young Zabrak with light-brown skin and a crown of slightly darker brown horns on his head. Argo is of average height, 176 cm tall with athletic build. Unlike many Zabraks Argo has a mane of black hair on his head and could grow some facial hair if he didn't prefer going clean shaven. He has a symmetrical facial tattoo on his forehead ranging down to both cheeks. He wears plain clothes, but carries a pair of slightly curved swords in sheaths on his back.

Other Notes

Zhaboka is a traditional Zabrak double-bladed sword-staff. The two Zaboka Swords Argo carries are a pair of swords that look like a Zhaboka that has been split in two, each about 60 cm long. Stats are the same as for Ancient Sword. They have the Paired attachment. The plan is to construct a pair of lightsabers when Argo learns how, possibly Shotos to keep the two short sword style from the Zhaboka-swords.
