In Character: Commandant Tavik met the Mandalorian officer leading his new Assault platoon. "These are replacements from the Anaxes debacle? Great, I am Commandant Tavik," The Commandant states in a bored tone. "Tell me about yourself, Lieutenant," The rebel officer stated and listened with intent. He heard the Mandalorian officer mention his rank as Captain. Tavik offers a slight grin, not seen on his face often and declared, "Your paper work that came from Rebel Headquarters states you are recognized as a Lieutenant, Lieutenant. The Company Sergeant Major, Jax will give you your room assignments. Have your platoon store their gear. That is all, Lieutenant." Commandant Tavik did not wait for a response. HE turned his back, clasping both hands behind his back as he strode away.
@Sep Seriously impressed by the amount of effort you put into the datapad file. *Rounds and Rounds of Applause*
I second that. There's been so much effort and consideration already put into putting this together, yet it's not nearly as complex or as unruly as some other rps. Great job, I'm really looking forward to where this is going.
Character Name: Skor Ximen Age: 70 Species: Skakoan Gender: M
Rank: Rear Admiral of the Alliance Navy Role: Captain of the Keep
Skills: - naval tactician specializing in raids and special operations. - seasoned commander deeply familiar with Imperial battle doctrine.
Weaknesses: - pronounced disdain for humans and most non-Skakoans - hatred of Imperials can lead him to recklessness and makes him more comfortable than many in the Republic with brutality.
- Skakoan pressure suit with Alliance rank insignia. Beneath the robes are powerful cybernetic enhancements built into the suit, giving Ximen considerable strength and speed, as well as the ability to operate in a vacuum. - A mechno-chair that Ximen often uses to clank through the crowded corriders of his ship. He frequently uses a similar device fitted with a hologram projector to communicate with underlings.
Skor Ximen's early life, like that of many Skakoans, was one of plodding advancement through the ranks of the Techno Union. Ximen's affinity for spacecraft and tactics landed him a place in the Union naval forces. He shared with many of his kind disaffection from the cumbersome and intrusive Old Republic, amplified by his intense dislike of humans, and was an enthusiastic advocate of the creation of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
He served the CIS well, specializing in lightning-strikes against Republican naval forces and raids on supply ships and depots, and ended the war as the captain of the Recusant-class destroyer Xenophile and commander of a squadron of Seperatist cruisers and destroyers.
After successfully withdrawing the from the battle of Coruscant, Ximen- like many in the Confederate navy- refused to stand down at the end of the Clone Wars, infuriated that a winnable war had been lost over-centralization and by the perceived incompetence of Dooku and Gunray. Ximen and the ships under his command waged a hit-and-run campaign against the nascent Empire, which he saw as merely a continuation of the oppressive and intolerable Republic. It was not long before the newly formed Alliance contact him along with other Seperatist holdouts, asking them to join the cause of freedom from imperial oppression. His rise through the Alliance ranks has been rocky, hampered by his loyalty to the Seperatist cause, outspoken Skakoan patriotism, and contempt for what he views as lesser races.
Still, his hatred of the Empire, fueled by a desire to avenge the indignity of Skakoan defeat in the Clone Wars, is second to none and questioned by no one.
His early career in the Alliance was spent at the helm of the Xenophile, leading a squadron of ships charged with raiding CIS and Republic weapons and naval depots that Empire left inadequately protected, underestimating as it did the level of resistance the New Order would meet even in its early years.
Captain Ximen gained notoriety among his Rebel allies when, in the course of seizing a freighter carrying Imperial food supplies, he opened fire on civilian transports before they could make the jump to hyperspace and alert the Imperial Navy. The incident came to be known as the Agriworld-Massacre, and provided the Empire with a propaganda coup, adding credibility to their caricature of the Rebellion as terrorists and Seperatist fanatics. Hardly a sacrifice worth a few thousand tons of Imperial rations.
Ximen spent some years in the wilderness following the massacre, relegated to escort and patrol duties in outlying rebel territories. Angry at Rebel Command and deeply bored, Ximen considered abandoning the cause. Only reports of Imperial repression on Skakoa and its dismantling of the Techno Union kept him wedded to the cause.
His chance at rehabilitation came in the form of an imperial attack on a rebel base in the Antipose System. Ximen and his squadron managed to hold off an imperial task force, giving the base time to evacuate. The Xenophile was critically damaged in the operation, but Ximen managed to destroy a Victory-class cruiser in the course of the battle before overseeing the rebel retreat. Ximen was promoted to Commomdore, and given command of the Nebulon-B class frigate, The Keep.
Over the next decade, Ximen would be promoted to Rear Admiral as he worked hand-in-glove with Rebel Intelligence to keep the Imperial Navy distracted and off balance, fending off near-constant feints and raids. This strategy tied up Imperial resources in system defense and patrols that would otherwise have been used hunting rebel assets.
Ximen was integral to the conceptualization and creation of Rancor Company. When Alliance High Command gave approval to the formation of the Company, Ximen's skillset and ship were seen as naturally suited to the task, though concern was voiced over the Rear Admiral's famous cantankerousness, Seperatist loyalties and chauvinism. His ruthlessness, however, once seen as a liability, was now seen by an increasingly desperate Alliance as an asset.
KPR-1 "Keeper": A tactical droid serving as Rear Admiral Ximen's adjutant and strategic analyst. Expert in Imperial Naval doctrines and tactics, obsessed with analyzing battle data.
KPR-202 "Keeper 2": The Admiral's second adjutant, oversees the bridge, which is staffed largely by old OOM-series pilot models.
LOM-8347 "Friendly": a foul-tempered LOM series protocol droid that serves as the Admiral's "head of security". Most onboard the Keep have endured his droning lectures if they run afoul of the Admiral in some way. He commands an eclectic collection of 200 or so combat droids- mostly repurposed B-1 models- that can be activated to act as the Keep's security forces. Most of the B-1s are kept stowed until needed.
Lieutenant Ensago: a Mon Calamari bridge officer. Ximen and Ensago despise one another, and Ensago is particularly disdainful of Ximen's reliance on droids. Despite their mutual dislike, they have worked well together for years and maintain a cool professionalism. Ensago is unafraid to speak bluntly to the Rear Admiral, who knows better than to ignore the officer that Ackbar has ordered to keep an eye on him.
