around for over ten years, and the Council is strangely silent about his absence.)

PADAWAN:
Thom Capella

PLANET OF ORIGIN:
Drowgheer

WEAPON:
Two concealed yellow-bladed lightsabers (one double-bladed, both disguised as decoration across the back of his belt), concealed blaster in shoulder holster, concealed vibroblade in right boot, retractable wire whip in his utility belt, reasonably proficient with almost anything he can pick up. Prefers unarmed combat. Go figure.

CHARACTER TRAITS:
Alert, observant, intelligent, thorough, cool-headed, well-educated, adores kids, ruthless when necessary, has the last remnants of an inferiority complex. Generally appears to be urbane, infallibly polite, somewhat self-depreciating and something of an extrovert, but he is a talented actor and one can never be entirely sure what the 'real' Barin is like. His temper has a very long fuse but a very large, vicious and violent bang.

FRIENDS:
Great friends with his padawan, a little distant with everyone else. Used to be a friend to Qui-Gon's former padawan Xanatos.

HOBBIES:
Training. Gymnastics, especially tumbling. Obscure fighting styles. Learning languages and studying cultures. Exchanging good-natured insults with his padawan. Catching his padawan out with practical jokes.

LIKES: Dancing, Old Coruscanti love poetry and Alderaani wine.

DISLIKES: Cooking.

FAVE FOOD:
Anything that takes longer than an afternoon to make or costs more than an evening's drinking to buy, preferably with an unpronouncable name as well.

FAVE COLOR:
Black.

GUILTY PLEASURES: He tries not to do that any more.

MOST ADMIRES: His padawan- for his unfailing good humour and his philosophical outlook on life. Master Yoda- for his understanding of the Force, for his sense of fun, and for being the one mostly responsible for allowing him to take the Trials.

AMBITION: To fully rid himself of the influence of the Dark Side.

GLASS HALF-EMPTY OR HALF-FULL: "Half... Has my padawan been here, by any chance? No, delete that. If he had then the glass would have been COMPLETELY empty."

WISHES FOR THE GALAXY:
It would be nice if things were less complicated.

OTHER: He has a dark past involving a long-standing friendship with Xanatos, a connection with a well-known pirate vessel, and who knows what else...
