Garen is an apex of human form. He stands at a little over 6 feet, his body muscular and toned from years of training, and scars scattered all over from various fights, from knives to blasters to improvised weapons. His hands are that of a laborer's, rough in general and calloused on the knuckles. His upper back holds a tattoo, tribal in design. He keeps his head and beard shaved to a stubble to avoid any disadvantage in a fight, where the black hair would usually grow medium length and wild. He has deep dark eyes, which clash against his pale skin, and bears strong facial features.

Report on skills not directly rooted in the Force, including level of skill
Garen has shown to exhibit a skilled amount of patience and level-headedness. His Teräs Käsi training has instilled this trait.
Garen appears to have a sharp, tactical mind. While not "smart", he seems to always be thinking many steps ahead when presented a challenge. When questioned, he explained that during tournaments, he had to plan for what moves his opponents might attack with.
Report on known combat experience, training and lightsaber training.
Garen, while having no prior lightaber training, appears to be highly skilled at disarming saber-wielding opponents. He specializes in Teräs Käsi, a fighting style native to his home planet, Bunduki, which was created to fight Jedi (in response to the destruction of Palawa, the peoples' original planet). It appears to work just as effectively on all
opponents using a lightsaber.
Background checks indicate that Garen has been the champion in Bunduki's own Teräs Käsi tournaments, consecutively, for 5 years. Other reports indicate that, during his time on Tatooine, he's come out victorious in every deadly encounter he has taken part in, with various sources citing opponents' use of blades, claws, blasters, et cetera, while Garen remained unarmed.
After his recruitment, Garen, reluctantly, studied the Form III "Soresu" style of lightsaber combat. He's trained in a basic capacity, most likely due to his own dislike of saber combat.
Detailed notes on political influence and associates.
Garen has no known participation of any sort of politics on Bunduki. He continues to show limited interest in the politics of The Empire.
Detailed notes on known rivals and enemies, outside and within the Empire.
Garen has displayed an open negative view on the Jedi Order, much more so than the populace of Bunduki. He claims that he can never forgive the Jedi for "destroying our planet and dumping us in the Outer Rim".
Despite the many fights he's been in, none of the enemy combatants have shown any significant malice or hate towards Garen, some even expressing respect (begrudging or otherwise).
The only people in particular who Garen dislikes specifically are a small group of smugglers, known to operate in the Outer Rim. Strong feelings of betrayal. (See Biography)
List and description of other known associates, including underlings.
Garen's former Teräs Käsi master, Toff Ozai, still resides on Bunduki and continues to train the natives.
List of known all ownerships, including vessels, non-standard equipment, slaves and locations.
Garen's home on Bunduki, as well as his livings on Tatooine, were spartan at best.
As a gift for completing his lightsaber training, Sith Lord Yaw Shondu gave Garen a pair of Gauntlets, the armguards and hand made of Phrik and the palm of Cortosis, protecting his forearms and hands from lightsaber blows and allowing him to disable caught sabers. When questioned about this expensive present, Lord Shondu claimed that it was not a gift, but an investment: he'd commissioned the gauntlets to make up for Garen's mediocre saber skills.
Psychological evaluation of candidate.
Garen has displayed a likeable and friendly personality. He has shown to not want or desire that of the material. Unlike the common citizen of the Empire, Garen frequently expresses mercy. More training is needed to phase these values out. As a positive note, he is well-liked by those of the lower class, strengthening morale.
This being said, if his enduring patience is broken, Garen can have a raging temper. Several reports on Bunduki as well as his own account on Tatooine confirm this. While he hasn't yet lost his temper during his service to the Empire, this trait can be used to our advantage, if manipulated correctly.
Garen's only true desire is to become more powerful. The Sith Empire is, by code, created for desires like these. The Empire can give this man all the power he could ever need, and as such, can steer him in the directions most beneficial for The Dark Council.
List and description of known and suspected flaws. To be put into restricted database.
Garen has shown a negative disposition in using his lightsaber, and as such, in the case of 1-on-1 duels and fights in which he has the clear advantage, he will use only Teräs Käsi, using the saber as a last resort in these cases. This can prove dangerous if dueling a skilled opponent.
Garen's disinterest in politics will hinder his growth in the Empire. He needs to learn this if he wishes to ever become a greater Sith.
Garen's personality is not ideal for the Sith Empire. His softness and merciful attitude, not only an affront to the basis of the Empire, will also impair his progress towards greatness, or worse.
known interests of the candidate.
Garen's interests are, through questioning and observation, as follows:
Major achievements on record.
Enabled many Sith civilians to escape a collapsing building on Korriban (five stories high, cause of collapse under investigation), using The Force to keep the vital structures stable.
Major failures on record. Confidential.
During a political mission to Kamino, an unknown assassin attempted to take the life of Yaw Shondu. Unsuccessful, Garen pursued the fleeing assassin, but ultimately failed to capture the target.
