Name: Xylas Novar
Height: 6' 2"
Weapons Dealer, Thief, Hacker, Collector, Liar and Family man are all words you could use to describe the Devaronian known as Xylas Novar. For years he has bought and traded illegal weapons across the galaxy, selling always to the highest bidder. Xylas has worked with the Hutt Cartel, the Black Sun and just recently the Empire. In a business like his you sell to whomever's willing to pay.
He wasn't always a Scoundrel though, he started life on Devaron, touched by the force. The Jedi sensed this and wanted to take him to teach him the ways of the force. But this was not to be, for his parents objected and the Jedi departed. For a while after the Jedi left Xylas, his mother and his younger brother were living rather normal lives with their father adventuring and bringing back treasures; Life was good, until one day he vanished. Their mother grew ill with grief, so it left Xylas and Corr to care for by whatever means necessary. They resorted to theft, doing anything from hacking bank accounts to siphon small amounts as to be unnoticed, to playing mind tricks on the simple minded. When Xylas' mother finally passed the two set out leaving Devaron behind, determined to make a fortune.
Years passed their business boomed selling illegal "goods" to whomever would buy and when the Clone Wars began, Xylas would find himself all over the Outer Rim, selling weapons to whichever side Separatist, Republic sympathizer it didn't matter. It was also around this time that Xylas would come across a Lightsaber as a "gift". He was always fascinated with the force and Jedi and he had the powers so why not take one from an unsuspecting sod. If the Jedi couldn't keep him from taking why shouldn't he have it.
Not everything he did was about business in the middle of the Clone War, Xylas would meet his wife. After a very lucrative weapons deal with Ziro the Hutt at his palace in Corusanct, Xylas would make his way back to his brother's ship, as he spotted a young Devaronian woman who had her purse stolen. He got the bag back and long story short that's how he met and eventually married the Junior Senator of Devaron.
He now had a purpose again like he did his mother before he would spend his time and effort making money to support his family to support Kara, and then the War ended and there were no Separatists and there was no Republic, only an Empire remained. Xylas was in the Outer Rim when the party started, but he felt odd as if something horrible had just happened, fearing the worst he headed straight to Corusanct to meet with Kara.
When he returned to his Kara's apartment he would be greeted by a Jedi Master along side his wife. They both explained how the Empire had ordered the death of all Jedi for treason against the newly Crowned Emperor, the Jedi stated he would pay for safe passage to a planet still untouched by the Empire. Kara wanted to leave Corusanct for she felt that if the Emperor was going to kill Jedi that it was unsafe for them to start a family she suggested return to Devaron.
And so began the most grueling few months of Xylas and his brother's life escorting a fugitive Jedi across the stars avoiding well traveled hyperlanes to make their way home. It was during this time Xylas would ask for training with a Lightsaber, simply to know how to use the blade. He wanted to know because he had the force. Upon hearing the request Master Ordo agreed questioning not how Xylas acquired a Lightsaber.
In the last 4 years before present Xylas and his brother split after about 12 years of working together, differing opinions on whether they should work with the empire. In the end it was Xylas' insistence that the Empire wouldn't screw him over that bit him in the ass. He's spent the past two years on Ord Mantell after a bad deal where the Empire stole from him. With his brother gone he was unable fight off the Stormtroopers he just lost it all. Now he just wants to get back to Kara and their child, to see them in person, not through hologram.
