As the next pre-gen character from my NJO Traitor's Gambit session, I present a character choice that most probably wouldn't make. Thanks to the bumbling of one Jar Jar Binks, most people tend to overlook Gungans as viable character ideas. So I opted to take a step to correct that, and so the idea of a Gungan bounty hunter was spawned. The fact that he makes use of old-fashioned slugthrowers I thought was a neat hook, which the person that played Faddo agreed with.
Faddo Nukkels, Bounty Hunter
Mini Used - Gungan Bounty Hunter, Dark Times 28/40
Faddo used to be part of the Gungan militia, trained to protect and watch over the populace of the Gungan underwater cities on Naboo. However, Faddo came to realize that he was much better at tracking down criminals than simply doing guard duty, and so left to pursue a career as a bounty hunter. While most people don’t take him all that seriously because of his species, Faddo has started to build a minor reputation for himself, especially due to his degree of skill with slugthrower weapons.
The Three Questions
What Do You Love?
You enjoy the thrill of the hunt, be it tracking down a criminal wanted by the authorities or something just as simple as finding that which is missing.
What Do You Hate?
You hate being compared to that bumbler Senator Binks, whose idiocy left the galaxy with a very bad impression of the Gungan people. Sure, you speak Basic with a peculiar accent, but that doesn’t give people the right to presume that you’re mentally deficient.
Why Are You Aboard the Zahn Pulsar?
You’d just claimed the bounty on a small-time deathstick dealer when the Yuuzahn Vong attacked. It cost you most of your reward money to secure passage aboard the Zahn Pulsar, something that you’re not happy about in the least. Still, it beats being left behind to face a Vong invasion fleet, as you know a losing fight when you see one. You’re not sure what you’re going to do once the Pulsar reaches the Hapes Cluster, but from what little you’ve heard about the Hapan courts, there just might be work for you yet.
