Equipment: Deck of sabacc cards, hold-out blaster (3D), one week’s worth of expensive clothes, 1,000 credits, datapad with rules for over 2,000 games of chance

Background: The galaxy is your oyster. You can go anywhere, do anything. You’re never down and out permanently—all you have to do is find a (fairly) honest game of chance, and there’s gambling everywhere. Money comes and money goes, but the game goes on.

Love ‘em and leave ’em, that’s your philosophy. You’ve never seen any point in settling down … not when there’s a starship leaving in an hour, a gambling table in the lounge and new worlds to explore at the other end of the journey.

It’s a good life. There’s always something new to do, always another game, always a fine meal or a top-notch wine. You’ve seen the cream of society and the dregs of the galaxy, and you’re comfortable with both.

How’d you get mixed up with the Rebellion? Well, it’s more that you got mixed up with the Empire. A little misunderstanding and presto! You’re wanted on a few planets. (Okay, okay … more than a few.) It’s tough to handle.

The Rebellion looks pretty hopeless right now, but it’s always got a chance … hey, you’re a gambler, right? Sometimes it pays to play the long odds.

Personality: Charming, unfailingly polite, insouciant, and insecure. You do extremely well with members of the opposite sex. Everybody either loves you or hates you … but absolutely no one trusts you.

Objectives: To have a really good time wherever you’re going. To set up someone for the big score, the con of a lifetime. And if your schemes inconvenience the Empire, well, so much the better.

A Quote: “It’s a sure thing. Can’t lose. Trust me. Hey, why are you all looking at me like that?”

Connection With Characters: You’ve kicked around the galaxy a lot, and could have become friends with (or swindled) any one of the other characters.
