the down and out - Ryō started life on a unexplored corner of Kintan, in a mountain jungle in the southern hemisphere. Where as the weakest of the whelps he helped his tribe hunt and gather, as well as helped the shamans with their rituals and religious works. But he and the strongest of his tribe were taken when Doremei the Hutt found them and enslaved them, forcing them into his fighting pits on Nal Hutta. Being the weakest there, Doremei put Ryō into the pits as a joke, meat for the pups. Whether through his strength, determination or sheer power of will to survive as a fuck you to the Hutt Ryō survived in the fightpits, and soon became Doremei's favourite fighter, but so many years of being treated like a caged beast had broken him. It was only after his escape to cryanokin, when he started to pick up his pieces and build himself back up again. on Cryanokin he was hunted, but he was also well known amongst the notable people of the planet. he worked with the Rooks on a few jobs, becoming a part of Shrike's crew, on her quest to harry imperials. He also picked up glasses and made cocktails at a well known pub on the planet, on the rocks. It was also on this planet where he found out he was a force sensitive, when he was on a mission to find his friend Spark's doppelganger. Fuelled by rage a green flame snaked around his arm, encasing his fist. he soon learned this was a rare ability, and a style of it only known to him and his tribe.
Then over the next 30 years were more or less of no note, Ryō was never one to settle down, he went travelling the galaxy, worked with shrike to put down remaining imperial outposts, worked with wil on his projects, did some jobs for house rook, and the like.
about 10 years ago he ventured back to kintan to find his tribe, it took him a year of searching but when he did, he was distraught. He felt it in the force, like a hundred voices were telling him to turn away from his home, he pressed on, hearing the voices grow and saw the ruins of his tribe.
100's of bodies, now bone and being chewed on by tiny vermin, in the shadows of demolished huts. It was then when the voices where loudest, penetrating his mind with hundreds of screams as they died and the cries for help as they slowly burned alive in burning collapsing huts, cradling their young, and finally hearing his mother and fathers voice among them. Ryō couldn't take it, in an instant he had cut himself off from the force wishing it would stop and sat there crying and shouting in anguish in the ruins for days. Filled with grief and anger he wished revenge on Doremei, and he eventually got it a few years later. It was only then after years of being cut off and once again relying on his anger and strength that he opened himself back up to the force with the help of his friends, but such time without had left him weak with the force.
Ryō wants to reawaken his attunement with the force and has gone on a pilgrimage to Sorgan to find a quiet spot to build his new home and live amongst the wild untamed nature of a newly colonized world, where he will meditate on the force.
15 - favour - Ryō owes favours to many factions, some he met on Daalang III in his first few years of freedom, and some he made after, any of these factions could call him for a favour and ryō would gladly help (on a mission whichever of the factions best fits the mission will call up ryō and ask for a favour).
- Queen Shirva
- Shrikes pirates (maybe an admiral or commander now?)
- House Rook
Ryō is a 55 years old southern nikto. He is an orange nikto and looks as a m’shento’su’nikto would, no horns, flat covered nose and two long organic tubes that reach around the back of his neck. He has many old scars from blades and claws from his previous life in the pits, and some newer ones from his adventures on daalang. He wears a long flowing cream coloured Robe that cuts off around his knees and wears an amulet around his neck, though it is always hidden from view in his robes.
