1) How did you discover your force sensitivity?
One day when giving an important Intelligence briefing to my superiors I became quite nervous and managed to turn myself invisible in front of everyone. Quite a shock to the officers assembled. Good memory that one.
2) Describe a moment where you fell prey to your moral weakness or experienced a tragedy/horror that still haunts you.
Early in my career as an intelligence analyst I attempted to promotion exam to field agent. My mentor cautioned me I was to young an inexperienced, but I went ahead anyway.
Shocking all my peers and superiors with my performance I aced the exam and was promoted to field agent. My mentor’s words proved to be prophetic and my first assignment was a catastrophic failure. I was doomed to write intelligence reports for the rest of my career. Worst of all I lost the respect of a man I considered to be a father.
3) How did you come to join the NJO?
I mean see above. Would you really want to be stuck writing intelligence reports forever? My career was dead. Here I can train and learn to harness the Force. I’m sure I’ll be a Jedi Knight in no time. Then it’s on to politics.
4) Name one NPC your character has a strong connection with. This could be a family member, a friend, a work contact, or a bitter rival.
An old Rebellion vet who oversaw me since Bothan Martial Academy. Like a second father to me. Really more like just a father, because mine wasn't good at being around. Or caring much. This relationship has become estranged since my earlier failure. My success at the Praxeum will remind him of my worth.
The Story of my Crystal.
During a mission with Usuph to infiltrate something on Colomex I was captured. I escaped into the urban sprawl, but lost all my gadgets and was pursued. I managed to evade capture, take refugee in a scrap yard. It was there I found a crystal. Picking together parts from the scrap I could construct a working lightsaber. I made my way to the spaceport and had one final bloody confrontation with my pursuers. I managed to steal a ship and make my way back to the academy.
The character has a large extended family, clan. or tribe that he deeply loves. He seeks both their comfort and approval despite the many voices clamoring in his ear for attention.
An ambitious character sets a lofty goal for himself and then strives to accomplish it. The harder the task, the more willing the character is to take it on, and the greater the triumph when he finally succeeds.
The many great things that the character wants to achieve are not all possible in one lifetime, so the character sometimes makes compromises in order to achieve more. His need for immediate achievement might even prove self-destructive, interfering with his long-term goals.
Trim, fit and tall (for a Bothan) Zebrist comes in a bit under average height for a human. He cuts a dashing figure in his exquisitely tailored jacket, matching pants tucked into shiny boots, cloak and well groomed fur.
Obligation: Something to do with regaining his standing in the New Republic and more importantly Bothan intelligence communities. Not sure what yet. Value of 10.
