Lynna Sellua was born the daughter of Rylothi noble Alaric Sellua. Pampered and privileged, educated in the arts of courtship, seduction, and every other expectation of a Twi'lek princess, hers was a charmed life.
The Sellua Clan were bonded in service to the Hutt Cartels, though to one of the more lowly families. That family had however acquired a factory of service droids some thirty years prior to the Clone Wars, and thus been able to staff their large mining complex on Ryloth with droids, turning the once-worthless site into a fine source of profit. The Selluas and their servants had served as administrators and maintained the droids, and those serving under them were treated well by the Hutts.
Born during the first days of the Clone Wars, Lynna was an infant when the Separatists came to Ryloth. Her father armed his workers and their heavy lifting droids, and they kept up an effective resistance in the hills above Lessu for six weeks before Republic liberation forces arrived to relieve them. The light armour column soon moved on, but what followed was a period of advantage for the Selluas. While always wealthy, the war opened up many new business opportunities for Alaric to exploit. The family moved to an expensive Lessu town house when Lynna was two years old, and growing up she had all the benefits of a wealthy child on Ryloth.
Despite this though, Lynna still visited the family's old work place as she grew older. There she saw firsthand the poor conditions of the slaves, and though they were better off than many on Ryloth it still went against her nature. Lynna was determined that neither she nor anyone else should be enslaved again.
When she turned twenty-one, Alaric told Lynna that he had lined her up a very nice - and substantially wealthy - husband. Sure, Silvo Poruna was ten years older than Lynna, still lived on his family's estate, was a spineless cave-shrimp and had a reputation for going through servants at an uncomfortable rate. But he had a family fortune of over a million credits. Alaric thus had no understanding of why his daughter instead told him her intention to go off-world and travel the stars.
Lynna wanted to live a life of adventure for a few years, travelling the galaxy and gaining a greater understanding of the nature of the universe. She had seen Twi'leks who looked only at the ground, who'd never left Ryloth or seen a creature not born under the red sun. She wanted none of that - it might have been the place of a Twi'lek princess to giggle and curtsey to her alotted husband, but she was not that kind of being.
The two fought for a long while over this but ultimately - at the exhortation of his wife Mirella - Alaric gave in and permitted Lynna to leave the homeworld. However, he laid down one condition: unless she had settled herself down after two years, she must return to the homeworld to meet her betrothed and be married. Lynna accepted, and boarded the first freighter out of there.
Since then, she has gone from job to job. Her trail across the stars has been marked by a string of broken hearts and broken cages both. Odd jobs everywhere from patrolling the depths of a garbage scow for mynocks, to serving as a courtesan and entertainer aboard the Galactic Empire's finest starliner, have kept her in credits over the years. However after a job gone wrong - and a marriage that lasted six months longer than she had ever wanted - she is left creditless, with only a blaster to her name and a ship to pilot, one populated by a crew of questionable competency.
To this day she still wears her ritual betrothal armlet as a token for her father's wishes, but it has been nearly two years and she has no intention of returning home any time soon.
Discovery - Lynna is driven to discover what lies elsewhere in the universe, and to make use of the freedom so rarely granted to women of her kind.
10 - Marriage Promise
Lynna is betrothed to wealthy Twi'lek heir Silvo Poruna. However to call him an odious slimo would be a disservice to every other odious slimo, so Lynna must keep away from either his foul clutches, or her father's well-meaning ones.
