In the aftermath of the Rebel victory at Yavin IV it has become clearer than ever the extent of corruption within the Galactic Empire. As Imperial Moffs and military leaders struggle for control in light of the Death Star's destruction Palpatine sends his top agents to restore order. The Emperor's Hand Mara Jade has been assigned to investigate allegations made by an elite Stormtrooper, as moves are made to tip the balence of power in the galaxy. This is a Mara Jade centered RPG set after A New Hope, for those who are interested in playing. Pretty standered RP rules apply here, no godmodding, respect the other posters, all of that. Below is the character I'm going to use, so send me who you'd like to play as and we'll get this party started. Name: Vanile Lash Rank: Corporal, Imperial marksman Gender: Female Age: 30 Species: Human Physical Appearance: Slim fit build, dark skin, brown eyes, brown hair done up in pigtails typical of her girlish nature. [image=http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e7/nancyallen/Capture-03-15-00001.jpg] Personal Effects: A vibroblade that had been crafted for an Imperial that she stole when working with Mara Jade. It was crafted to not only be similar in weight to a lightsaber for ease of use care was taken to balance the blade so it weighed evenly at each end. Vanile also treasures a pair of fighting gloves she uses, they were from a tournament she competed in and a number of soldier's stories of the things they did in the Empire. Homeworld: Ithor Bio: Lash was a test case to allow women into the ranks of Imperial Stormtroopers, accepted thanks to influence from her parents who had both served the Empire. She was placed in the squad known as the Sluggers upon proving herself in training. However after several years of loyal service Lash began to have doubts of their work, always maintaining her loyalty was to the galaxy rather than the Emperor. It began with division within the different ranks of the Imperial armed forces, followed by the tactics used by the likes of Grand Moff Tarkin, Vader, the Imperial Security Bureau and the Empire himself. Between the Death Star being planned as a weapon of terror and information she passed on about Tarkin's alleged madness Vanile began to lose heart. Things came to a head when on a raid she witnessed the people she was after commit suicide rather than be taken in. Later she threatened to inform the ISB of a commanding officer's actions. Because of this Lash was called into question over whether she was attempting to undermine the Empire. Fearing that she would be found innocent her commanding officer has made allegations of Lash being too idealistic to serve, while planning to silence her permanently. Lash's hand to hand skills leave most in the Empire for dead, and it is rumored she is good enough with a blade to spar with Vader. But Lash seems disinterested in using these skills, saving them for competition rather than fighting the Rebellion. She prefers instead to find non violent solutions to problems, such as her efforts to discredit those harmful to the Empire rather than fight them directly. Typical of her girlish nature Lash very much enjoys leisure time, something very much outside of the Imperials she quips. As a means of coping with some of the tasks she was called upon to commit Lash began sleeping with some of the members of her Stormtrooper squad, despite the belief this is bad discipline. She also has the most wonderful evil laugh, more of a cackle actually, that puts even Palpatine to shame.
