Selena Tello was born Diana Sylorn. the daughter of former shipping magnate Kara Sylorn, who ruled her business with her husband Moko. Her parents created their empire from scratch on Coruscant, and as a result they were really protective of their daughter, afraid that someone could use her against them.
With this in mind, Diana was raised in a sheltered environement. The Jedi sensed her affinity with the Force at a young age, but her parents managed to use their relations to bar them from taking away their child. Diana grew up unknowing of this fact, reaching her teenage years living a happy life, working towards becoming a diplomat, and dreaming of joining the Order. She studied hard, held parties with other rich Coruscant kids, and was known as a kind and sociable girl.
Two weeks before the fall of the Republic, Diana found out that she had been barred from entering the Jedi, and felt some sort of calling. The Order was the embodiement of everything she thrived to be, a diplomat working for peace in the galaxy. Two weeks later, she found a way to sneak past her parents' surveillance to go to the Jedi Temple, where she was met by the slaugther of padawans perpetrated by Anakin Skywalker. Diana lost a leg that day, cut down by the future Sith Lord ; she avoided death due to the intervention of other Jedis of the temple, managed to crawl back to the streets and reach out to her chauffeur who brought her home.
She was endowed with a brand new Cybernetic Leg implant, due to her parents being friends with the manufacturer. Sadly, her affinity with the Force was common knowledge in the political spheres, and even though she wasn't affiliated with the Order, a bounty was soon issued for her capture.
Diana had to run. She was hidden by her parents for a while, but soon had to escape the planet. Her parents' company and assets were taken away by the newly-formed Empire, Kara and Moko executed. Diana , 16 years old at that time, only had some spare credits, clothing, and a cybernetic leg. She was afraid, out of her depth, and looking for help anywhere she could.
Diana boarded a ship towards Nar Shadaa, looking for a contact of her parents, Botaro. She found the guy, a local scoundrel, who taught her how to live and behave in the criminal underworld. Diana toughened up and learned to use her charm, her wits and her social skills to live alongside the crimelords. She took the name Selena, the name of her grandmother.
She didn't rise up the ranks of any criminal organization, always trying to find a way of following her ideal of justice, even in this hellish environement. She wanted to do good, and had to survive without being noticed too much to do so.
Since then she worked as an informant of sorts, using her talents to gather intel and sell it to whoever is interested. She helps people whenever she can, but her means are often limited, as she keeps a low profile due to her bounty. She goes by the name Selena Tello in the Underworld.
She came into contact with a Rebel Soldier, Tamor, a few years back, and finally decided to take matters into her own hands and seriously join the fight against the Empire. She flew to Lantillies to meet him, only to learn he had died in an Imperial bombing. Selena has now joined the Alliance, and tries to find her place in this totally new enviornnement.
Cause : Overthrow the Empire
Deep down, Selena's goal is to overthrow the Empire that took everything from her : her family, her status, her dreams. But she's just a girl, with only a bit of extra intuition : she had to focus everything she had to survive in the dog eats dog world of Nar Shadaa. She recently joined the Rebel Alliance, and as such finally has the means to do good on a greater scale.
Duty : Support (35)
Selena is a kind girl at heart. After several years working on Nar Shadaa, she has seen her fair share of horrors, and as such compensates by trying to help anyone in need.
She'll gladly fight from the shadows, having lived all her life trying to escape the Empire. She finds great satisfaction in helping people hurting the Empire, and supporting them from behind is often the best way for her to help, as she's not an exceptional fighter or leader...yet?
Selena is a real beauty, being 5'6'', 36 years old, with attractive features and long blond hair. She is usually clothed with a heavy leather jacket, which she sometimes unzips to use her looks to lower the guard of whoever she's targeting.
Selena has a cybernetic left leg, but it doesn't grant her additional kicking or jumping power as it was installed when she was a teenager, and was tuned to match her remaining physical leg. It is a prototype, so difficult to fix.
Selena is a smart girl, educated due to her upbringing in the higher spheres of Coruscant, and well aware of her charms and social skills. She knows how to handle a gun, but uses it very rarely, and tries to avoid confrontation whenever possible. She can be prone to running away if things go south.
She is an idealist, and tries to let her peaceful ideals lead her decisions, even if this didn't mean much in the Underworld. She hopes to be able to change that by joining the Rebels.
