Name Rank Book & Page Description
Toughened [DS], [ARC], [CO], [DW] 5 AoR CRB 158 Increase WT by 2 per rank of Toughened.
Grit [DS], [ARC], [CO] 4 AoR CRB 148 Increase ST by 1 per rank of Grit.
Armor Master [DW] AoR CRB 142 When wearing armor, the character increases his total soak value by one.
Dedication [DS], [ARC], [CO] 3 AoR CRB 145 Each rank permanently increases a single characteristic of the player's choice (Agility, Cunning, Presence) by one point. This cannot bring a characteristic above six.
Hidden Storage [Droid Specialist] 1 AoR CRB 148 Any large equipment, vehicle, or droid that the character owns has one or more hidden compartments for smuggling appropriately sized gear. The number of compartments is up to the player, but cannot be enough to hold a total encumbrance value of items more than the character''s ranks in Hidden Storage. The size of the compartments are proportional to the size of the vehicle or droid in question. Most humanoid droids can only hold items equivalent in size to a one-handed weapon, whereas a silhouette 4 starship could conceal humanoids within its compartments. Any checks to detect these compartments have a Formidable difficulty.
Gearhead [Droid Specialist] 1 AoR CRB 148 Remove 1 Setback per rank of Gearhead from all Mechanics checks. In addition, the credit cost to add mods to attachments decreases by 50%. This does not increase with multiple ranks of Gearhead.

Conditioned [ARC] 2 CotR 38 The character removes 1 Setback per rank of Conditioned from their Athletics and Coordination checks. They reduce the damage and strain suffered from falling by 1 per rank of Conditioned.

Repair Patch Specialization [DS] 1 AoR FO 31 Whenever the character uses an emergency repair patch, the target heals an additional wound per rank of Repair Patch Specialization. The sixth emergency repair path and beyond each day still have no effect. If the character is a droid, it may use this talent when using a patch on itself.
Design Flaw [DS] 2 AoR FO 30 When making a combat check with a personal scale weapon against a droid, the character adds Advantage equal to his ranks in Design Flaw.
Reroute Processors [DS] AoR FO 31 Once per encounter, the character may perform the Reroute Processors action on a droid he is engaged with by making an Average Computers check. If successful, the character decreases one of the droid's characteristics by one (to a minimum of 0) until the end of the encounter and increases another of its characteristics by one (to a maximum of 7) until the end of the encounter. If the character is a droid, it may perform this action on itself.
Master Artisan [DS] AoR FO 31 Once per round, the character may coluntarily suffer 2 strain to decrease the difficulty of his next Mechanics check (or his next check to build or mod an item) by one, to a minimum of Easy.

Scrap 'em! [CO] RotS 42 After making a successful combat check, the character may suffer 2 strain to perform the Scrap 'em! incidental. The character selects a number of allies no greater than their ranks in Leadership. Those allies add a Boost to their combat checks against the target until the start of the character's next turn.
Scrap 'em! (Improved) [CO] RotS 42 When the character takes the Scrap 'em! incidental, they affect a number of allies no greater than twice their ranks in Leadership, and affected allies add 2 Boost to combat checks (instead of 1 Boost).
For the Republic! [CO] RotS 39 Once per encounter when an ally is incapacitated or killed, the character may perform the For the Republic! incidental. The character makes a Daunting Leadership check. If the check succeeds, the ally is not incapacitated or killed until the end of the following round, instead.

He then suffers a number of strain no greater than his ranks in Side Step. Until the start of the character's next turn, upgrade the difficulty of of all ranged combat checks targeting the character a number of times equal to the strain suffered by the character.

Background

Our first deployment was the Battle of Geonosis. I was given command of a platoon, and we managed to make it out unscathed, one of an excessively small number of units that hadn't lost a man. That wasn't for lack of action, though. We saw plenty. After that, Sei Vanta saw how well we worked together, and managed to pull strings and get us assigned to her. We were to operate as a surgical strike team, sent in ahead of an invasion force to strike a few key positions, then fall back to rejoin the invasion force or be shuffled off to the next target. We had one successful operation under Master Vanta, hitting a few key sites on Atraken just before the invasion, again making it out, miraculously, unscathed. We were then shuffled off to our next target: Akiva. That's where our luck ran out.

My squads and I boarded our shuttles ahead of the Jedi and her new Padawan (who had yet to arrive) and departed, as we were on an accelerated time-table and had to get there first. In preparation for the invasion of Akiva, we'd drop onto the world and neutralize a few key locations, then join the incoming invasion force. Our force consisted of a platoon (Varactyl Platoon) split into four squads, two to each shuttle. One pair was led by Jorin and Sei Vanta, the other led by me. We were to further split into their squads to hit four targets in close proximity to each other, then link back up. But the Separatists were ready. They had received advanced warning and had shifted forces to prepare for the attack and set up ambushes in key locations, aided by the native Uugteen. We walked right into it. Jorin’s Deathspine Squad was the first hit. His master ordered him to retreat and warn the others, so Jorin took off into the woods and broke radio silence to warn me. The rest of Deathspine Squad, including Jorin's master, were wiped out.

My Venomblade squad fared little better. We caught the panicked comm message from Jorin just before we were hit and managed to put up a bit more of a fight. We took out most of the droids, but were attacked from behind by the Uugteen, who had flanked around. I ordered the other two survivors to scatter and vanish into the jungle, hoping that might allow some of us to survive. As I worked my way through the underbrush, I drew the attention of one of the Seps sweeping the area. As the Uugteen approached me to investigate the motion, my buddy Sharp jumped up yelling and fired several bolts at the man, hitting him several times. Instantly, several of the other Separatists cut him down under a hail of fire, but he successfully distracted them from me. I restrained myself, trembling with the adrenaline, anger, and loss. I determined not to let my friend’s sacrifice be in vain and continued on, crawling away from the ambush. I pinged Jorin’s comm to get a general location and hoped the kid was alright.

I found Jorin, hunkered down in the darkness. A twig snapped out in the woods and the kid grabbed his damaged lightsaber. I came up behind his shoulder and said "Wait." "If clankers want to tango, now they’ll have two to dodge." Jorin said "Well thanks a lot" told me his name, and asked me mine. I said, "The boys just call me Camouflage." I handed him my other DC-17, and we fought all night, side-by-side, took our battle stance, and the kid wondered how the bolts missed me. Cuz they seemed to go right through me, just as if I wasn’t there (though it was really an illusion of the OCS). And in the morning we both took a chance and ran. It was near the riverbank when the ambush came and he thought this was the end and we were had. Then a bolt with his name on it came buzzing through a bush and I shoved him aside. We were pinned down, but then we heard a blaster that sounded different: a deece. The blaster fire from the Separatists ceased, but I pulled Jorin down when he tried to stand up and look around. Then one of our rescuers called out, and I responded. Havoc, Hawk, and Fury were the only survivors from Ignition Squad, the second squad under Jorin and Sei Vanta. We joined forces and checked our maps for the fallback rendezvous point, deciding our best bet was to head there. When we reached it, there were three others already there: Shadow and Ghost from Preystalker were already there with Anakkona, the only other survivor of Venomblade Squad. From there, we managed to regroup and push back through enemy lines and reach the landing site. The future of the hastily renamed Varactyl Squad was uncertain, but we ended up being assigned to Jorin for deployment to a special unit in need of reinforcements after recent losses.

Motivation

Relationship: Charge
On his very first deployment after leaving the Jedi Temple, Jorin's master was killed. I kept him alive, and the kid is... I don't know. Imprinted, I guess, on me and my men. I've got to keep him alive and show him the ropes. He's had his baptism of fire, but he doesn't have much in the way of experience. The boys and I will look after him, at least until he has a new Jedi master.

Conflict: Know Your Enemy and Know Yourself
I've studied droids, and now I study the natives of the worlds we deploy to. I saw too many of my brothers fall in the Battle of Geonosis, unfamiliar with the bugs' tactics and abilities. I learned a lesson that day to always know your enemy, and know yourself; your own capabilities and weaknesses. I've studied the droids inside and out. Every model we could get our hands on. I know just where to fire for the most effect, I know their tactics, I know how to anticipate their next moves. But not just the droids, My men and I have begun studying alien species, and always read up on any we're apt to encounter in a given mission. Many of my brothers make the mistake of focusing solely on the droids, and have paid the price when the Seps aren't droids. Lastly, I must know my men well. I didn't grow up with them, so I'm starting behind the eight ball a bit. I need to learn what they can do and what they can't. I'll know just how to help and just what not to do. I need to know how to take every advantage in combat, while allowing as few threats to develop as possible.

Duties

(-5=+1,500 credits)
Sabotage (5):
Our job is to clear the way for advancing units, but we often travel light. That will often necessitate using the Seps heavy weapons against them. Detonating their AA ordnance, rigging an ammo dump to blow, or even just turning their cannons around and shooting everything Seppie in sight.
