Background

Tion is a human orphan taken in by Jeth Achoa, a wealthy Arkanian crime lord who is addicted to being an addict. Drugs, gambling, doesn't matter. If it is available, Achoa wants it all. Achoa uses children through their teenage years as runners for his business and then forces them to keep working for him after they become adults.

As he grew up, Tion showed a spark that Achoa appreciated and he quickly became a favorite of Achoa's, much to the chagrin of fellow runner Plesh, a human girl about Tion's age. Tion learned his way around games of chance from watching Achoa, but it didn't take long for the boy to realize Achoa made most of his earnings through cheating.

Years passed and Tion grew tired of working for Achoa. He knew he definitely didn't want to live his entire life under Achoa's thumb so Tion was able to put the knowledge of his boss's cheats and scams, along with Achoa's incredible arrogance, to good use when he challenged the man to a game of Sabaac with his freedom from the Arkanian's syndicate as the winnings. Achoa agreed, never considering he could possibly lose. With help from an older member of Achoa's crew with whom Tion had grown very close named Gareth, Nova was able to whip up a device to manipulate the cards and earn his way out of the organization. Achoa was quite angry, but kept his word.

However, Tion slipped up. About a week after Tion left, constant chirping from Plesh that Tion must have cheated somehow made Achoa suspicious. He discovered Tion's slicing left a signature in the cards, proving Tion's guilt. The Arkanian, furious and gutted by Tion's betrayal, put out a bounty on the human and Nova's been on the run ever since. Regularly dealing with shady characters has sharpened some unsavory skills and also means he's also learned his way around blasters - both ends, unfortunately.

One day he'd like to take out Achoa and free the rest of the workers from Achoa's grasp but until an opportunity arises to do so he makes ends meet through a combination of gambling and low grade cons.

Description

Tion Nova is a 22-year-old human of average height and weight with jet black hair and green eyes. Living with a bounty hanging over his head and dealing with the dregs of society in general has made him careful and slow to trust. While he is generally more calculating than he is brash, he does occasionally overestimate his abilities.
