Asa was brought as a baby to Weik, shortly after its re-discovery by Imperial scouts. There, he was given into the care of the Paladins of the Adamite Tower by a woman, who left him with only a small jade talisman and a last name: Sunrider. The Paladins named him Asa and raised him as one of their own, teaching him the pursuit of justice, the responsibility of protecting the weak and helpless, and the power of the Force.
However, it was not to last. Asa fell in love with a girl who belonged to the Lucites, a terror group who sought power at the expense of others. Even though the girl pledged to leave the Lucites for him, their tryst was discovered, and Asa was summarily exiled from the order of Paladins. He never saw his love again.
Without a purpose on Weik, Asa gathered what little belongings he had and found passage offworld.
Not two months later, Asa happened upon a mugging in process. He rushed to the victim's aid, flourishing his ancient sword in the style of the Paladins. The mugger fled for his life, but before Asa could turn to the helpless traveler, he felt a sudden overwhelming dizziness. He fell to the ground, unable to move, and the last thing he saw was a man in a black robe, putting a gag in his mouth and then a hood over his head.
Cause: Help the Helpless
In the months since he left Weik, Asa has seen a galaxy full of desperate struggles. He knows that his purpose is all the more important now: to be a voice for the voiceless, to give hope to the poor, to protect the weak, to uplift the downtrodden.
Asa was raised by the Paladins of the Adamite Tower to bring justice: helping those who could not help themselves, deposing tyrants, and combating evil. However, he did not grow up with an appreciation for mercy. He knew the value of compassion, and strove to exercise it, but those who would prey on the helpless did not deserve his pity; nor did their deaths warrant any remorse.
Asa is a muscular human, full of life. He wears his armor proudly, a suit made from the dusky chitin of a vicious Dust Stalker. It garners him odd looks off of Weik, but he doesn't mind.
Asa's hair is red, and he wears it cropped short. He always wears his jade charm on a leather cord around his neck (he assumes it belonged to his parents).
His sword & sheath are usually worn strapped to his back, with his bow and quiver alongside them.
