The down and out - Des and his older brother Kin’ro grew up on the streets of coruscant after being kicked out of their undercity home by criminals, they scavenged and scrambled about the streets for years prior to the clone wars, taking part in less ‘legal’ acts to survive, for a better life both children had dreams of joining the republic military, mainly as it was a easy way to get out of poverty, having 3 meals and a shelter amongst many other benefits. During his time on the streets Des was always handy with a blade and always had a passion and spirit for fighting, teaching himself his own style of unarmed combat along with his brother who used to duel and train with eachother as a way defend themselves. Well during the clone wars they both joined up with the republic in 20 bby and got through their basic military training as part of a non clone unit. During his time in the military he also furthered himself with his unarmed and close quarters combat techniques, becoming part of a special commandoes unit where he spent a lot of time behind frontlines and away from his brother, barely hearing anything from him as he was always fighting on frontlines in all theatres of the war. But war is very rarely victimless, and his brother was one of the victims, on a peacekeeping operation on Cato Neimoidia he was killed in an ambush by separatist partisans and during a attempted coup, paraded his beaten and bloodied body throughout the streets of its capital along with others, while broadcasting it on the holonet, obviously this coup didn’t last long but the partisans where never caught or killed. Long story short, Des deserted his post in the commando unit, bought passage to Cato Neimoidia, and begun a hunt for the partisans with nothing but a vibrosword and a combat knife. After dealing with these partisans and exacting his revenge, he came to the conclusion that he was now a criminal wanted for treason and desertion he needed a way to gain an income for himself doing the only thing he did best, killing. So after getting some false credentials (naming himself ‘Kas Re’val’) and a mask to hide his face, he applied to be a legal bounty hunter, affiliated with the new imperial regime.
Code - ‘Finish the job’ and ‘Quiet professionalism’ - to Kas, he is motivated because of his involvement with the empire, he deserted once, now he is trying to repay his crime on his own terms, he had a motivation to finish the job and keep it quiet and quick, as any hired assassin or commando would want to do.
5 - Dutybound - Kas feels like he has a duty to fulfill, by working with the empire as a bounty hunter
Kas is a well built young looking human, his facial features are mostly unknown due to the face mask and goggles he wears for what seems all his waking life, his hair is a dark brown and is usually uncombed, though despite this it is fluffy looking and stands up on its own. He usually wears a simple black trousers and white shirt combo with a brownish bantha leather jacket he likes to wear which offers a slight bit of protection from blades and blaster shot.
