    The AARC (Association of Airspeeder Racers Circuit) is a sling racing (airspeeder) racing circuit that pits the brightest and the best of the airspeeder pilots in the galaxy through a series of challenging races that test physical determination, will, and skills to the max to determine an eventual champion. It was founded in the year 119 ABY.

    The ARJD (Airspeeder Racers Junior Division) is the 'minor league' circuit of the AARC, founded in 124 ABY. Its role is to develop the next generation of talent for the AARC circuit while also providing participatory racers with the opportunity to hone their skills against racers with similar backgrounds who may or may not have prior experience in sling racing circuits. Some racers do not have any sling racing experience in their background, and may also be hobbyists seeking the thrill of the chase.

    Name: Veloxa Mcear

    Gender: Female

    Species: Human

    Homeworld: Chandrila

    Appearance: 5’7” athletic build large scar running from her brow to her scalp, rather average facial features.

    Skin Color: Fair (Caucasian)

    Hair Color: Dark blonde, cut short to fit under the helmet

    Eye Color: brown

    Clothing: when not racing T-shirt, pants, running shoes. Racing uniform is a green flight suit with required sponsor logos

    Other Attributes:

    Prior Racing Experience: one season in the Junior Galactic Rally Championships

    Racing Habit: aggressive, especially in corners.

    Area of Specialty: Highly technical.

    Biography: Daughter of Rally legend Linoc Mcear, Veloxa seemed to have her father’s gift for driving but, she never got to show him. He died when she was young in an airspeeder crash that took her younger brother as well. As she grew up hearing stories of her father’s speed and recklessness she became enamored with the Rally circuit. Small landspeeders flying down narrow roads at, some would say ridiculous speeds always a hairs breath from a crash, racing the clock. As soon as she was able she joined the Junior Galactic Rally Championships.

    Her name alone was enough to get her through the door but, her talent behind the wheel was unmistakably that of her father. She was second in the standings towards the end of the season until she came around a corner too fast and had a crash of her own. A piece of the speeder broke off and punched through the windshield striking her in the head, cracking her helmet. She suffered a season ending head trauma and her co-driver broke an arm as well as his spine.

    After healing and getting a clean bill of health she tried to get back into the JGRC but, no manufacture would touch her, not after her accident and what happened to her co-driver. After that she fell into a bit of a depression struggling with her actions and not having any release for her emotions she shut down and barely left her family’s farm house on Chandrila. Then one of her father’s friends suggested joining the AARC they were always looking for talent and the Mcear name still has some weight to it. Her mother was worried at first but then saw the light in her daughter’s eyes return again at the prospect of racing again. With help from other retired Rally drivers she put together a team and got a minor sponsorship from ChandrilTech. Now she doesn’t care too much about her standing, she’s just happy to finally race again.

    Name: Jemma Talion
    Gender: Female
    Species: Cathar
    Homeworld: Denon
    Skin Color: Yellow
    Hair Color: White
    Eye Color: Blue
    Clothing: Wears a black flightsuit during races, with a white helmet that features a prominent red stripe down the middle. When she is not racing, she normally wears a light brown tunic with gray or black slacks.
    Other Attributes: Very intelligent racer who is prone to out-thinking herself when she gets stuck in a jam. When she over-thinks a situation, she tends to fall apart.
    Prior Racing Experience (i.e. are they new to airspeed racing, have they done it for a little while, did they swoop race before, etc.): Amaetur airspeeder racing champion, spent part of a year on a professional circuit before a crash ended her season and forced her to re-think the design of her craft.
    Racing Habit (i.e. aggressive, laid-back, calm, etc.): Somewhat calm, but always calculating
    Area of Specialty (i.e. speed, balanced, technique, etc.): Balanced, but prefers speed

    Jemma Talion has always had a ‘need for speed’. Growing up on Denon, she immediately gravitated towards anything that could get her going fast. She started doing junior racing with small speeders at the age of 6, and went through all the major junior circuits on Denon and in the Core region as she grew up. During secondary schooling, she would occasionally miss class due to races on the other side of the Core, bringing home amateur race titles along with Denon planetary school league championship titles. At one point, she was named the 2nd-ranked racer prospect coming out of Denon.

    In her first season as an amateur racer on a circuit, Jemma took it to her competition and won easily. She supplemented her income by working two jobs, barely paying the bills as she hoped to land a job in one of the pro circuits. It would take another year before one of the circuits would take her on as an amateur champion.

    She participated in four races in the Inner Rim Airspeeder Racers Challenge before crashing in a devastating manner on one of the junior courses on Brentaal. Another racer cut her off and forced her into a crash-landing, but she wasn’t able to keep control of the craft correctly, and the ship partially came apart on impact. Her craft was smashed beyond repair, and she missed the rest of the season with her injuries.

    With medical bills eating up her precious savings, Jemma turned to junkyards to scrounge together another racing craft. She tried various old wrecked frames to build upon, but she finally had to build one herself out of spare parts and anything she could find in the junkyards of the Core. After about a year, she started to test out her new custom-built speeder, but initial tests were not promising. Undeterred, Jemma allied herself with a few of her former amateur racing opponents and built herself a stronger ship, sometimes spending days at a time in a workshop to craft the correct parts to the right specifications. In the process, the ship, her friends later would say, became like her partner; she would look after it, paying attention to every small detail, and in theory it would look after her by giving her a powerful airspeeder to someday dominate the pro circuit. She built parts from scratch and filled in with older scraps until she finally had the design and functionality that she wanted.

    When the call came out for the ARJD, Jemma immediately used what contacts she had to get herself involved in the minor league circuit. She hopes that her work will have paid off enough to land a spot in the AARC, and to someday make a living as a racer.

    Ship model (if applicable, or custom-built): Custom-built using parts taken from various scrapyards to create the initial frame, and took the ship out for technical challenges. As pieces broke, they were replaced meticulously by her and her crew to complete the look and update the rusty old parts into much stronger new ones.
    Description: Something similar in shape to this, but obviously low-powered for a racer.
    Markings (if applicable): Large yellow stripes down the sides of the vehicle.
    Vehicle Name: Sun Rider

    Pit Crew:

    Pit Leader Name: ‘Speedy’ Crannon (Human, Male)
    Pit Member 1: Elzbet Villit (Twi’lek, Female)
    Pit Member 2: Hugo ‘Heavy’ Wizzin (Herglic, Male)
    Pit Member 3: Lira Walles (Human, Female)

    Insignia: A yellow sun that has a small dot on its edge that indicates her craft riding along its surface.

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away…..

    Before the formation of the Roon Federation.

    Before the hallowed days of Elite League Limmie and the Nar Shaddaa Smugglers.

    Before the dark times of the Neo-Sith War and the heroic actions of one Derek Vehn over Taris.

    There was a family living regular lives on the blue collar world of Ord Mantell. A family with little political aspirations. A family that had wandered for centuries from planet to planet in search of a better life. A family that felt it had finally found a place they could call home.

    In this family there was a young woman with a dream and a vision: to win enough money racing to save her father’s life from a debilitating virus that was slowly killing him.

    This young woman was brave, ambitious, and a bit of a risk taker.

    Her name was Jamie Vehn.

    Name: Syl Syrgas
    Gender: Male
    Species: Nautolan
    Homeworld: Glee Anselm
    Appearance: Syl stands at 5'9 with an athletic build. He wears his tentacles mostly towards the back but does drape two onto each shoulder. His large spherical black eyes accentuate his strong jawline.
    Skin Color: Bright blue.
    Hair Color: No Hair.
    Eye Color: Black.
    Clothing: Inside his speeder he wears an orange and black flightsuit and helmet that have his sponsorship logos on them. Outside he usually finds time to wear only the finest tailored and fashionable clothes.
    Other Attributes: Aggressive and more than a bit arrogant, Syl has a thirst for life and danger that may well see him dead.
    Prior Racing Experience (i.e. are they new to airspeed racing, have they done it for a little while, did they swoop race before, etc.): New to airspeed racing, and knowing nothing about the inner workings of the craft, Syl does have some racing experience. He has raced in illegal swoop races across the galaxy, preferring the courses. He filmed a holovid about pod racing and, due to having to learn how to pilot, claims he "ran a podrace once".
    Racing Habit (i.e. aggressive, laid-back, calm, etc.): Aggressive. Even when he has no right to be. Reckless. Dangerous. Prone to mistakes in the pursuit of a win.
    Area of Specialty (i.e. speed, balanced, technique, etc.): Speed.
    Biography: Growing up on Glee Anselm, the only thing Syl really wanted was excitement. He didn't care for tradition or anything that told him to stay with his people. He wanted to experience life. This led to his admiration of the land on Glee Anselm and especially with dangerous activities. He quickly grew infamous amongst his people and others as a trouble maker and daredevil. He would constantly push local speederboats and swoops past their limits in order to get a rush.

    When he was 18 one of his exploits caught the eye of a vacationing holovid talent scout from Coruscant. The man liked Syl's attitude, looks, and abilities and decided made him an offer to leave Glee Anselm and head to Coruscant to become a star. Not even thinking to let his family know, Syl accepted the offer and headed off on what he thought would be his greatest adventure.

    And he was partly correct. The man was right, and Syl quickly became a known actor in the world of action Holovids. People recognized him all over the galaxy and he gained great wealth. However, amidst the life of a star, Syl realized he still had something missing. The thrill just wasn't there. Even when doing his own stunts the danger wasn't present. Too many harnesses and other protections. He didn't feel like he could perish at any moment. That was when he discovered the world of illegal swoop racing and decided to try that out on the side.

    For a time, this was perfect. He could act and still thrill seek. However, one costly accident and he had to promise to his manager to never do that again in exchange for starring in a holovid about Podracing. He still wished one day to return to the world of racing. His true passion being the never ending ballet between life and death as you speed past obstacles.

    Now, 28, Syl heard about the AARC and abruptly fired his manager and 'retired' from acting. Spending a large portion of his fortune, he hired a crew, bought a custom speedboat, and headed off to find that thrill once again. This time legally.

    Ship model (if applicable, or custom-built): Custom ordered amphibious speederboat.
    Description (or use an image, if you are so inclined): This, only without the landing gear. [​IMG]

    Biography: Airspeeder racing is the second most dangerous thing that Niall Dunross Trieste does. The first is get out of bed, for there is a bounty on Niall’s head.

    Fourteen years ago the youngest son of prominent Fianna Fail politician Daly Trieste was a normal being with a normal job, normal aspirations, and a normal life. Then someone killed his aunt, Saraid Trieste, fourth Taoiseach of the Noble House of Trieste, one of the most prominent and influential political families on Bakura.

    To the surprise of everyone in the family, her will stated that this unremarkable, ordinary, rough-around-the-edges being was now the fifth Taoiseach of the Noble House. It was not an honor Niall sought, but he accepted it for one reason: it gave him control of the family’s fortunes and he could use them to find the beings who killed Aunt Saraid.

    At the end of seven years, he had achieved his vengeance and all those who played a part in Saraid’s death were in their graves. However, those beings had powerful friends. Just when Niall found peace, the first of the bounty hunters looking to collect the reward found him. That being is dead. So are the three others that followed. The most recent attempt on Niall’s life was years ago...but he knows it was not the last. The bounty still stands.

    Even so, has settled down. He is happily married. He adores his children. He has more credits than he could need by virtue of the family holdings. Justice has been done. And yet without the is dull. When Niall heard about the AARC’s formation, he thought that, perhaps, this thrill could satisfy him...
