Xev was born to a bounty hunting family of Niktos. His Father, Zoth was a bounty hunter who frequently worked with a Tono the Hutt, so frequently when Zoth was away on hunts Xev would stay in Tono’s palace on Nal Hutta amongst some of Zoth’s friends who cared for him and kept him fed. Zoth was a very good bounty hunter but he had shit luck and a vice for gambling. So he racked up a substantial debt, of about 30,000 credits, and in a desperate attempt to regain this money he took a dangerous job for the Hutt and bargained with the Hutt to lend him a ship to get him where he was going. Before this mission was the last time Xev saw his father, he had told him that everything was going to be alright and that as long as he did the job and bought back the ship all their debts were paid off. He never came back and with his debt of 30,000 unpaid and now a lost ship the new debt was a substantial 200,000 credits. Because of this debt Xev was put into an indentured servitude to the Hutt where due to his athletic stature and strong muscles he was made into a gladiator, told to fight until he paid off his father’s debt, that was 5 years ago in 22 bby.
Freedom - Xev wishes for freedom to live his life as he pleases and not be a slave to any Hutt, he has vowed to be free from Tono the Hutt and to not die in his pit. If he were to ever get out of the pit before his debt was ‘paid off’ (which it most likely never will) he would’ve have to be on the run until this debt was repaid somehow.
Find his father - His father disappeared many years ago, but it was left up in the air what happened to him, he may have died on the mission, died out in space, got captured or ran away with a new ship to live on the run. Xev always liked to believe his father had not died and said that if he ever got out of the pits he would find his father or atleast find out what had happened to him.
15 - debt - Xev was But a teenager when the debt of his father fell to him after his disappearance, this debt was an substantial debt of 200,00 credits. The Hutt still wanting his money and Xev being penniless presented a problem, so the Hutt made him an indentured servant until he ‘paid his father’s debt off’, but his service wasn’t dancing for the Hutt lord or serving drinks around his palace, but he was put into gladiatorial bouts for the Hutt.
