A Little Bit of Red
Fierce and armed to the teeth Raezyr rides out the storm that is her life by her own will. She sells her martial talents that her family might enjoy the privilage of the life of freedom.
Raez’yr was born on Ryloth the third child of five in a family managing a small medicinal Ryll mine. Her early years filled with joy as having many siblings and cousins to play with maintained the blissful ignorance she had of the adults trials. The mine, while a source of the family’s minor success, brought the attention of the Hutts who had less than legitimate uses for the Ryll in mind. Her father, Cotan’yr, and her mother, Nima’yr, did all they could to pursue legitimate business, sabotage of equipment and nature of the harsh environment of Ryloth landed the family in debt that by the time Raezyr had become unmanageable. He parents reached an agreement with the Arturo the Hutt a calculating young Hutt who had taken to snatching up a few of the independent mines to protect them from the attention of some of more despicable Hutts in the industry. While this protection was clearly the lesser of evils it was a great blow to the independence her parents had so fiercely protected and at a steep price. Her eldest brother, Kopecz’yr, and eldest sister, Feen’yr, were sold as sexual slaves to Arturo.
The next few years her parents pushed the mine as hard as they could in hopes to buy out their new partner and to buy their children back. Raez’yr was left to help raise her younger brother, Inun’yr, and younger sister, Oola’yr. The mine now catering to both medicinal and illicit Ryll and Arturo’s influence in choice of employees gave the mine a far rougher edge than before. Leading to Raez’yr scrapping with some of the new employees to protect herself and siblings from being shaken down. Days before her sixteenth birthday her family was given tragic news, her Eldest brother had been murdered. Her parents, ill prepared, were weeks away from a meeting with Arturo who was making even greater demands for the production of illicit Ryll. They had nothing but the family mine or their children to negotiate with, to give the mine up meant poverty and a life most likely leading to slavery. If they could by time perhaps one or two of their children would make it an find jobs off world as free people. Raez’yr offered to join her parents with herself up as an object to be negotiated.
When the day finally arrived Arturo and six of his armed thugs came to examine the mine and negotiate the deal over the family mine for the next few years. Raez’yr had promised to her parents that she would keep her composure when the time came for her to be offered as a slave,it may have been good fortune that she broke her promise. He parent’s made the offer and before Arturo would accept his cronies were to examine the goods, when two of Arturo’s men closed in on her and Raez’yr attacked them. In a few quick blows she left the men knocked cold before her, her family horrified and Arturo laughing. Perhaps Arturo was feeling generous that day as he left with Raez’yr in his employ and her family’s mine safe for a few more years.
After a few months in the Hutt’s employ she was summoned to meet with the Hutt for a special assignment. The Hutt was incensed, he had finally tracked down the person who had arrogantly destroyed his property then dashed off world without even a token credit of respect or apology. Finally the details emerged her brother Kopecz’yr had been offed for an evening to a man named Sebastien Adell who had been visiting Arturo on business as a representative of Teemo the Hutt. Adell had killed Kopecz and slipped away off world before finishing the deal from Teemo. Not only had this man destroyed property but left Arturo out of a lucrative deal. Raez’yr was given a golden opportunity she would dismissed from Arturo’s employee and sent to Tatooine with the cover of guarding a shipment of Medicinal Ryll. Once on Tatooine she was to kill Adell in whatever fashion she chose so long as it was in front of Teemo. After which if she lived she was welcome to return for lucrative contracts, which of course could be put towards assisting her family mine. If she chose not to return her life would be her own, of course she would not have Arturo’s protection should she draw the ire of the Hutts.
The kill was quite easy, Raez’yr found her target out with Teemo watching the pod races dunk and completely unaware he was being hunted. Perhaps it was it was the concern over Teemo’s protection that left his men vulnerable. She approached Adell, who was drunk and laughing with Teemo’s men, tapped the man on the shoulder and as her turned, greeting her with a drunken smile, she plunged her vibrosword into his chest. The kill was the easy part,without the crowd there to slow her pursuers, the escape would have been impossible. So it was a short time later Raez’yr found herself, a wookie and a human desperately trying to escape Teemo each for their own reasons.
