Remember the Chatham
PC Name: Illyse Aalanna
Presence ~ 4
What makes them stand out or memorable: quirks, mannerisms, clothes, fetish?
Illyse, a head-turningly beautiful Twi'lek with deep azure skin and bright green eyes, who spends her days and nights gallivanting across the stars in her ship, The Blue Syren, and landing in starports all across the galaxy for a trading, info gathering, or a good game of sabbac. She is a quite successful trader that can be found wherever there is good deal and Imperials, and she does what she can to bring any special deals to the less fortunate Outer Rim settlements or to the Rebellion if the situation presents itself.
Her head-turning beauty gives her an advantage in most situations and she has never shied away from using her feminine wiles to her advantage, to which Imperial arrogance can fall easy prey to. She has always been good with her words and her body and has never had an issue with doing what it takes to get what she wants. She does not have a mean streak, per se, but will choose what would be considered base or distasteful methods liking sleeping her way to get information or a to obtain a good deal on goods, to get things done – a con woman with a heart of gold.
“You have not known the word undignified or repulsive until you have given a blowjob to a gamorean prince for a lucrative contract.”
Illyse’s charms and skill at finding a good deal have been used to help further the Rebellion's cause. She definitely prefers the company of the more altruistic and loyal Rebellion and its members, but finds that boorish and arrogant company of Imperials a necessary annoyance for her work and for the Imperial money. She collects what info and goods she can and, when the opportunity presents itself, she passes it on to a rebellion contact or transfer point. She is not a member of the rebellion herself, but finds herself distinctly drawn to support the cause in any way she can. As an added benefit to helping the Rebellion, she enjoys the challenge of sticking it to the merciless Empire by attempting to avenge, at least in her mind and heart, the significant harms to the innocent of the galaxy.
Her life, led by using her feminine wiles for deals and working for the Rebellion, makes her a gambler of the first order, and, by virtue, she has a weakness for gambling games. Fortunately, for her she is good at it, but there have always been some who are better at the table, and that has created problems for her when her beauty does not seem to sway those who want their, hopefully fairly earned, money.
