    Where in the Galaxy is Carmen Sandiego?

    Breaking Holonews:

    A massive interplanetary investigation is underway this evening after two-hundred and fifty million credits worth of Corusca gems were stolen earlier in the day from the Air and Darkness Casino on Commenor. The rare gems were on display as part of an extreme-stakes sabacc tournament run by embattled entertainment baron Sevulian Mardox. While no official statement has been forthcoming from authorities, the high profile heist is believed to be the work of notorious thief Carmen Sandiego. Speaking from Menor city, Baron Mardox has offered a six figure reward for the capture of Sandiego and the return of his jewels. He called on all interested parties to meet at the Air and Darkness Casino in one standard day for further information. Commenor Security and Investigation was not available for comment, but a priority C.S.I warrant has reportedly been broadcast to all Coreward enforcement agencies. Described as a female humanoid with a penchant for red clothing, Carmen Sandiego has been attributed with over a dozen substantial thefts in recent years. If she is, indeed, the mastermind behind this latest brazen robbery, time is fast running out for Mardox and his gems. More updates soon.
    Welcome to an original RPG which sets the classic pursuit of Carmen Sandiego within the vast multifaceted galaxy of Star Wars. In this game, players pit their wits and roleplaying skill against a plethora of mind bending challenges in an effort to track down and capture the legendary thief Carmen Sandiego. Playing as a team, players are presented with an ever expanding network of clues that will lead them on a galaxy spanning hunt for a stash of Corusca gems and one undeniably fashionable criminal. With multiple routes, competing players and only your mind as an ally, you will find yourself faced with the ultimate question:

    Where in the Galaxy is Carmen Sandiego?

    Culprits:
    Head GM - Sai-Mera_Saa (chief thief - ie the person to whom you PM questions, problems or character sheets)
    Co-GM - FlamingBladeSaber (my invaluable partner-in-crime who deserves much thanks for putting up with endless PMs, considerable waiting and my last minute approach to development)

    Special thanks also goes to my indispensable edit guy - you know who you are. This post would be far more confusing without you.

    (I know the following is slightly long, but it explains how the concept of roleplaying mystery works, so you'll need to read it to understand how to play the game.)

    Investigating the heist:
    * All players will begin on Commenor in a conference room of the Air and Darkness Casino. After we have a few players, I will make an opening post as Baron Mardox to explain the situation and request that characters form groups of at least three. In other words, everyone will be tracking Carmen in a team of three or more (eg five) players. I do this because I'm a great proponent of players interacting with each other in character, and believe me, you'll have more fun this way. Therefore, everyone will begin in the same place and you will all have an opportunity to form teams through IC dialogue. If, for any reason, the members of a team need to be modified, exchanged, or otherwise rearranged, just drop me a PM and we'll sort it out. Note that teams MUST travel together at all times (eg one team member cannot head off to a different planet).
    * Teams will journey to a wide variety of planets and interact with specific beings on those planets. There are a number of locations you can visit on every planet, each with a particular person that your team may interact with. Anything outside of the listed locations is not part of the main plot - so you can invent geography to travel though as you go, but only the listed locations will receive a GM response. For simplicity, I'm working under the assumption that Carmen is a good thief and doesn't leave a careless trail. Therefore, location/>

    Thanks for the enthusiasm jedimasterinu - always good to see. However, you need to have your character sheet approved before posting it. Rest assured, you're well on your way to this (read your PMs). Unfortunately this sheet won't apply though.

    Brief bio: Despite his profession he is not all that bad. He enjoys hunting his bounty and usually does not kill them. But if you tick him off you will be in a world of hurt. Has even caught Dark Jedi . His past is anything but a mystery, although many things he wished to keep private did not stay that way. His darkest memory is killing his family, they were in league with the Dark Jedi and he hated the them for it. So he killed them all of them from his little sister to his oldest grandfather. So he became a Bounty Hunter the only thing he really could do and for 5 years he has surpassed bounty hunters who have been doing this for twice as long.

    Name: Erik Visputin
    Age: 30
    Species: Human
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: Jewel/Art Thief
    Appearance: He is a tall and athletic person with dark-brown hair and green eyes. When he works or travels incognito, he wears a custom built light battle-suit that is flexible and durable against shrapnel and fire. The suit comes with a custom built half-face helmet with features that pretty much function similiarly to Boba Fett's. The suit can also be equipped with a jet-pack, but prefers not to use one.
    Personality: He is arrogant and proud of his profession and skills. He can be as reckless as a Corellian or as cautious as a Chiss. He likes to showoff his skills and has been known to snub his victories in the faces of the law or rivals. He dislikes violence and killing and goes out of his way sometimes to save the lives of those pursueing him. He only steals for the challenge and to collect. Rarely does he sell what he steals.
    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: Steal the Corusca Gems from her for himself, and for the challenge
    Brief bio: Erik Visputin is one of those thieves who has yet to make a name for himself in the galaxy but has made a name in his local system or sector. In his home sector he is a notorious jewel and art thief without a face. Only his name is known to be only associated with high-profile heists. Finding his home sector no longer challenging, he has decided to broaden his choices of places to steal from. He would have stolen the Corusca Gems from Baron Mardox but someone else had gotten to them before he even finished planning the heist. Disgruntled that the infamous Carmen Sandiego had beaten him to the same prize, he has vowed he would steal them from her. He looks forward to this greater challenge and the reputation it would grant him should he succeed.

    CHARACTER SHEET FORMAT

    Name: Varksst'illio
    Age: 35
    Species: Twi'lek
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: Gambler
    Appearance: Varks' skin is dark blue in colour. His right lekku has a tattoo stretching across the whole length, though it only consists of a straight black line etched into his sensitive head tail. He wears brown pants and a baggy blue top that is cuffed at his wrists. Varks' clothes have a seedy appearance to them, including his totally mismatched cape. It is black in colour and is flowing, though crinkled, from the clasp at the nape of his neck all the way down to were it dances to a stop at his shins.
    Personality: Brutally honest. Thinks about himself a bit higher then he really is, but is fair in all his dealings.
    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: Varks was a part of the sabacc tournament held at the Air and Darkness casino, in which he believed he would be the winner. He now deems that the theft was personally directed at him, by stopping him from victoriously taking the prize. The only way for him to have revenge, is to find and claim the stolen gems as his own.
    Brief bio: Varksst'illio was raised on Ryloth, before he stowed away on a ryll transport ship at a young age. Moving from planet to planet, legitimately or not, he has since then made a living as a gambler. Having lived off his very few and far between highs, and living low in the seediest of slums at times, Varks has seen his fair share of what the galaxy has to offer. He was currently in one of his 'droughts' as a gambler when he entered Sevulian Mardox's sabacc tournament, with a firm belief that his time had come and this would be his life-changing game. He now seeks to find what he thinks should be rightfully his.

    Character Sheet:
    Name: Jin (pronounced as Gene)
    Age: 29
    Species: Human
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: Bounty Hunter
    Appearance: Medium height and medium build, he is lithe and surprisingly strong at the same time. His features are classically handsome... some would go as far to call him gorgeous. Has dark hair and even darker eyes. Has a Krayt Dragon skin belt on which he hangs his dual modified repeaters and his Vibrosword on. Numerous scars adorn his otherwise handsome body. Wears light battle armor, the color of the midnight sky.
    Personality: Quiet and introspective, Jin is a man of few words. Though when he does have something to say, it is worth listening to. Adheres to a strict code of honor that is mysterious. Not very good with people... knows it and doesn't care. Through years of bloodshed he has become desensitized to violence, save towards the innocent.
    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: Needs the money.
    Brief bio: He was born on Denon to two extremely poor vagrants. In order to save themselves from death at the hands of a lone shark they sold their youngest child into slavery. He was spirited off planet never to know of his homeplanet or his parents.

    In the hands of a Vile slave master, Marga the Hutt, he was given the name Jin. He was sent to Kessel, to mine Spice. While there he fell under the wing of a gang of thugs. Mostly former military men, assassins, and martial artists. Under their tuition he beacam a skilled fighter, a cold blooded killer. Through sheer guts and determination Jin survived Kessel to become his master's pet gladiator.

    In countless arenas throughout the galaxy Jin killed, always for the greater glory of the master he despised. He became so good in fact that he was the first gladiator in a millenia to earn his freedom.

    So it was that he became a bounty hunter. It was the only trade that he could lawfully use the skills he had acquired. His first bounty was Marga the Hutt.

    Age: 42
    Species: Sullustrian
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: Scrap metal salvage
    Appearance: typical sullustrian, but with a brown jumpsuit ,metal helmet , goggles and a tool belt
    Personality: cantankerous, but prone to fits of laughter
    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: needs the money
    Brief bio: was salvaging scrap metal from the craters on endors moon that were left from falling death star debris, when he was chased off by a tribe of Ewoks that survived post explosian firy debris raining appocolyps. Seems Ewoks no longer take kindly to strangers after helping the rebels and watching them all leave before city size chunks of metal began falling. Naroob got his @$$ kicked by the angry furballs and decided being a bounty hunter might be a safer line of work.

    ( just read that this takes place BEFORE the movies, not after, so )

    Naroob was making a quick and tactical retreat from the sanctuary moon when his gigantic rusty Salvo-9 Hauler got pulled through a temporal rift that was created by the death star 2 explosion. He has no idea what has just happened or when and where he is.

    -----Naroob
    "dooo.....where in tarhooties did everything just go ?......better check the scanners...."
    Knocking over a half empty big gulp and several fast food wrappers Naroob finds the scanner and the first message it relays is something about a bounty for Carmen Sandiago and to meet at Grand Conference Room of the Air and Darkness Casino.
    "Well it ain't like I got nuttin else ta do."
    Scratches his metal helmet and follows the beakon to the the Air and Darkness Casino where he has to park 6 blocks away due to the size of his old Salvo-9 Hauler.
    "Dernit now i gots ta walk all dat way"
    The valet takes one look at him and says repairmen are to use the back entrence.
    " I aint no repairman ya dude."
    and he pushes his way in. since he is early he goes strait to the bar.

    GM Update

    Greetings all. It's a pleasure to have you hunting me. Just a quick update to say I'll be making an opening post to start us off in the next day or so (depending upon additional players, time factors etc). The game will remain open to new players after we begin, as Baron Mardox's scene-setting speech shall be holo-recorded for convenience and made available for all who wish to take up the pursuit of Carmen Sandiego.

    One matter I should clarify now, however, is the chronological setting. The omission of a specified setting above has been pointed out to me and, while it isn't strictly relevant to the game, I shall provide one for ease of roleplaying:

    Where in the Galaxy is Carmen Sandiego? takes place 25 years, 3 months and 14 days before Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi landed on Nute Gunray's Trade Federation battlecruiser.

    I've received many positive responses and I look forward to starting soon.

Kelly's mother died soon after from the grief of her husband's passing, he was young, alone, and out of money. Kelly soon fell into a life of crime, selling deathsticks, and spice on the streets. When he made it into his twenty's his benefactor offered him a job, to kill a rival spice kingpin on Mygeeto who was taking bussiness away from him. Kelly accepted the job, and killed the man.

    I haven't forgotten about you all. Last night I was going over the plot and it just struck me flat in a couple of areas - so I've spent the evening doing a complete rewrite of the clues to make things more entertaining. As you can probably guess, I'm not finished. Since it's 3am, the opening post will have to wait until tomorrow. My apologies, we should be on our way soon.

    Character Sheet:
    Name: Sounil Mistry (Sith-I-5)
    Age: 19
    Species: Twi'lek
    Gender: Female

    Occupation: Intelligence agent with the Secret Galactic Intelligence Service or SGIS. Former investigator for Jedi Order, looking for Sith.
    Appearance: Flesh-coloured skin, Blue silk thigh-length robe, belted with black sash. Carries lightsabre, wrist-communicator and blaster pistol.

    Personality: Brave and caring.

    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: Seconded by SGIS, something to pass the time between missions, excuse to work with Markus, I dunno. Take your pick.

    Brief bio: Global-level martial arts competitor on Meridean. Failed to win, and fled planet in shame. Joined Jedi library on Ossus, earned private investigator' qualifications by correspondence course, joined Sith-I-5 (Sith Investigations 5) to hunt Sith across the galaxy, joined SGIS and met colleague Markus Carfax on a mission to Ryloth.


    Name: Markus Carfax (Livi-Wan, currently on holiday.)
    Age: 28
    Species: Human. Barely
    Gender: male

    Occupation: Intelligence agent. Self-proclaimed 'best hacker in the galaxy'.

    Appearance: Lanky, pale, black hair, unshaven. Fifty-a-day Cigarra habit, so not in the best of shape.

    Personality: Gruff. Cares for Sounil, but generally regards his fellow agents as barely competent glory hounds.

    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: Was out of cigarras. Told there was a tobacco supplier on Commenor. Oh yes, and the chance to work with Sounil again.

    Brief bio: Born on farming planet, Baar. Left age seventeen to seek fortune. Found it behind the ten-inch thick vault doors of the Bank of Coruscant, which he promptly robbed. Offered chance to escape prison by working for SGIS.

    Additional support
    Vessel: The Last Bolt. Sith Interceptor that will eventually become Darth Maul's vessel. Sounil and previous partner stole it from a Seinar asteroid facility during an aborted Sith investigation.
    The ship has an onboard AI (artificial intelligence) that takes the appearance of a holographic astrodroid (like the Droids cartoon), and it's speech will be printed in bold.


    OOC: Like QuiGonTim, posting their arrival on Commenor.

    IC: Sounil Mistry, Markus Carfax, onboard the Last Bolt

    We're down. The AI announced, the holograph smiling smugly, Commenor Spaceport welcomes careful drivers.

    Sounil frowned at the holo' susspiciously. "They actually said that?"

    What? No. Was reading a sign in the car park; saw it on the external sensors.

    GM Update

    Well, it's finally ready. After two rewrites and a considerable amount of tweaking, Carmen Sandiego is now finally ready to escape. We've got a great array of players here, it should be a good game.

    Gameplay change:

    Upon reflection, I have decided to reduce the minimum number of players required for a team. If you can recall from the first post, I stated that players would be traveling in groups of at least three. I'm altering this to two. This means that your characters will be asked to form groups of AT LEAST two before setting out to hunt down our clever jewel thief. You can form larger groups if you wish and groups may be altered at any time - just ensure that nobody gets left to go solo.

    Where in the Galaxy is Carmen Sandiego?

    You will all be following a trail of clues that I have carefully written. Remember, the only locations at which you can progress your investigation are listed at the end of the first post (and again, you are advised to explore Commenor initially). Feel free to journey to, or through, other places as you pursue Carmen in character. Also, keep in mind that all clues will be written in bold magenta text. To briefly give you some idea of what you will be up against - there are seven different ways you can track Carmen through the four opening planets. You can do this with as little as four clues or as many as seven. Be creative, have fun and good luck.

    Opening Post

    IC: Baron Mardox

    Grand Conference Room, Air and Darkness Casino, Commenor

    Pweeeiiip.

    "Is this thing on? Miles, get me a glass of tonic."

    Baron Sevulian Mardox stuck his long, blue snout further out and peered down at the beings assembled before him. An Ortoloan with a penchant for ronto steak, Mardox stood on the low podium like a pre-shaped party balloon whose rise to grandeur was held firmly in check by a burgeoning belly. Out beyond his stomach sat a sizable crowd which he now addressed.

    "Ahem. Greetings fellow sentients...and other things. I have called you here today in response to a terrible tragedy, a truly monstrous act of edible proportions." Here he paused to collect a large breath.

    "My gems are gone!"

    The force of Mardox's outburst shot ripples through his almost gelatinous skin and sent his snout into such a waggle that it looked set to part company with the Ortoloan's pudgy face and launch off into the hyperspace dancing business.

    "Carmen Sandiego will pay for this. It almost puts me off my lunch. Miles! My tonic."

    Here he paused and downed a large red glass of something that seemed unusually interested in escaping to the floor. After a moment, Mardox turned and swept his eyes back across the cream coloured room in an imitation of Marky Million's famous holodrama finale. Somewhere, a marketing executive died.

    "Now, go out and find that upstart and get back my gems," he snapped, pointing first at the kitchen and then, realising his mistake, changing angle to pinpoint the emergency exits.

    "Uhh, sir?" a quite voice broke the silence from safely out of reach. "Aren't you forgetting..." it trailed off again as if unwilling to do more than prompt.

    Mardox stared blankly for a moment, before wobbling back to life.

    "Ah yes, I was just coming to that. The brunch-hating authorities probably won't help you, so I'll deform you..."

    "Inform sir."

    "Inform you of the situation," Mardox took another breath. "My prized Corusca gems were not discovered yesterday afternoon in the secure display room. Like fasting mongrels security had not checked up on them since the day before, so they don't even know when my gems were stolen."

    Mardox slammed his fist into the table and, encountering no table, pitched forward in a manner quite alarming to those in the front row. Upon regaining his rather low centre of gravity he continued.

    "According to those incompetent security beings, the thief melted a hole through the transp

    ooc-Dont like posting first, but here goes.

    IC Kelly

    Grand Conference Room, Air and Darkness Casino, Commenor

    Kelly listened to the man speak, he was off to the side, leaning against a wall. The room was filled with other bounty hunter scum looking to find this Carmen Sandiego. The man spoke about wanting everyone to be paired up, this caught Kelly's attention as he didn't want to be held back, and worry about somone else. Plus he didn't know anyone, didn't want to meet anyone, he had to much pride, he wanted to work alone. Kelly then scanned the room, not looking for competition, but for partners.

    All around it looked as the others were doing the same, typically bounty hunters were loners, this wasn't a good idea. As the man wrapped up his briefing he mentioned the 5,000 credit reward which really made him happy he was doing this manhunt, the money would be more than enough to get Kelly's little 'bussiness' off the ground. Kelly grinned slightly.

    The owner of the gems finished speaking, and pointed out thier would be recordings of the briefing. Kelly was the first to walk to the man's assisstaint to recieve his copy, he placed the small holo recording disk in a pouch on his belt. Kelly then walked back towards the center of the room where the others stood.

    Alex listened to the man speak and as soon as the words 'pair up' were used Alex felt this was going to be rough. He looked around and spotted nobody to his likeing. Alex soon got his copy of the little conference and quickly went outside. "Great the last thing I need is a partner, oh well a challenge is always welcome"

    -----Naroob
    ( looking around the table he saw a lot of armored well armed real hunter types and wondered just how dangerouse this Carmen Sandiago was, he also didn't feel he was given an accurat description of he, so at risk of sounding stupid he had to ask )
    "So....this Carmen Sandiago.....is she an Otorlan like yerself, some kinda furry critter, or a human."
    ( there was an awkward silence broken only by the sounds of Madox eating )
    " Guess it don't realy matter none "
    (a little embarased and feeling unprofesional Naroob sliped outside to get some air, and he saw Alex who also seemed to be collecting his thoughts. )
    " Eh..hem....Looks like neither of us like small talk much.....anyways I got an idea , I ain't realy big on the buddy system, but I thought maby you'd like to back me up, seeing as two sets of eyes and ears are better then one.......I've cut Transpara-Titainisteel many times and it seems to me there's only two ways to do it eficiantly, one is with a light sabre, but this Carmen don't sound much like a Jedi. The other way is with a fusion cutter. you follow."
    ( before saying anything else Naroob paused to guage how interested and ernest Alex seemed. )

    Erik Visputin - Commenor

    Grand Conference Room, Air and Darkness Casino

    If it were not for the armor and helmet he wore, there was very little chance anyone could figure out that he was anything else but a fortune-seeking bounty hunter. He said little and expressed just as much when Mardox told them they had to work together on this one. Erik did not work with anyone he did not know or trust. And considering that all these men were primarily bounty hunters and he, himself, had a bounty on his own head in his home system, he certainly was not very keen to having to work with any of them.

    The pseudo-bounty hunter stood up and walked up to Mardox's assistant and took a copy of the recording for himself. The only reason he was going to go through with this whole thing was so he could repossess the jewels from Sandiego and broaden his reputation beyond his home system. So, for now, he was willing to sit on his pride and work with one of the others. Turning away from the assistant and looking at the group assembled, he studied them. Two he recognized as law enforcement, two of the others were not even bounty hunters at all. The one he suspected, by the expression on his face, had intended to win the jewels in the sabaac tournement.

    An emotion finally breached his carefully made stone face as he smiled at the thought of working with the two investigators. Out of all of those assembled, these two had the resources to obtain information far easier and more legally than any of the others. Plus it stood a good chance that these two had a better network of informants. It would be an amusing challenge to use these men for his own goals without them knowing they had been had. Erik approached the two investigators and stuck out a gloved hand.

    "I am Erik Riggers," he said, smoothly slipping into one of his aliases with practiced ease. "Let's go to the bar, let me buy you gentlemen a drink and we can talk business."

    IC as Varksst'illio - Commenor:
    Grand Conference Room, Air and Darkness Casino

    The thought of eating rancor fritters caused a slight gurgle to escape his otherwise occupied stomach as he sipped the drink he had bought from the bar earlier. Varks smiled when a more pleasing thought flashed through his mind. The gems! They are so sparkly... So delicious...

    This time his whole body made a slight shudder at the path of his thoughts. He concluded that his mind must be reminding him of the lack of digestive food he had consumed since his arrival on Commenor. Varks stood from his chair as he downed the end of the fluid inside the glass he was holding. Another one of these wouldn't go astray either.

    His eyes gazed around the large conference room, taking in all the detail and residents. Such scum... Varks flicked aside his flowing cape at his shoulder as he noticed a particular individual. The man seemed capable, and crafty at that. He slowly followed him when he saw that this helmeted being was already approaching two other occupants. Occupants that Varks would rather not deal with, considering his history. But he would do all that was necessary to gain back what should of been his.

    "And I can put it on my already well-established tab," Varks interjected with a flourish of his cape after the man's kindly offer to the investigators. "Varks Stillio," he continued with a nod of his head, not offering his hand. "Varksst'illio for you, my good lady," he said gracefully towards his fellow specimen with a more regal bow. Or should I say, speciwomen. His face opened with a wide smile showing his crooked teeth. "I then propose that we make a toast. To Carmen Sandiego for outsmarting the galaxy. And then we shall offer a second toast to her, for her eventual downfall. And finally, a toast to us. For earning ourselves a sith of a lot of money."

    Grand Conference Room, Air and Darkness Casino, Commenor


    As the bloated form of Baron Mardox finished speaking Jin pondered the situation ahead of him. To find Carmen Sandiego you had to be bright, driven, courageous and, most of all observant. In his hand held a mug of Corellian whiskey. With a thoughtful motion he drained the rest of the contents in a gulp.

    If he had his way this Sandiego would have her hands chopped off. Such was the reward that thievery garnished. An eye for an eye he always said. To take what you have not earned was extremely dishonorable in his eyes. A person should strive to deserve the finest... not take it from its rightful owner.

    Placing the mug on the adjacent table Jin moved towards the podium with an air of martial prowess. Taking a holorecording of the message he turned his attention towards the assembled. Many still sat, apparently mulling over the Baron's words. Carpe Diem his trainer Axle had always said. Apparently it meant seize the day in the ancient tongue.

    Thus he moved about through the crowd quietly taking the measure of each of his potential teammates or his potential rivals. There were many a bounty hunter. He didn't have the best relatinship with his peers... something about him taking only legal contracts and taking down those who paid their bills. Pigs like Marga he thought proudly.

    Suddenly his eyes were drawn to a group of males speaking together at the far end of the hall. Two Twi'Lek, one male and one female, and two humans were conversing. He had heard that the Twi'lek and the human were partners, investigators. Jin had worked with law enforcement before and, for 500,000 creds he'd be more than happy to do so again.

    His movements were controlled as he moved towards the group. Every muscled in his body answered to his faintest whim. It was this control over himself that had kept him alive in the disgusting illegal Gladiator Arenas.

    Coming upon the group he stopped a respectful distance away. Courtosy was yet another thing that was lacking throughout the galaxy. "Good day." he said in his most congenial and formal tone. Somewhere amongst the stars the barve who had tried to teach him etiquette was having a heart attack. "Perhaps I can join you on your quest to find this Carmen Sandiego." His voice continued on in its slightly forced tone. "By the way the names Jin."

    When Jin gave his name he visibly flinched. Anyone who had even a modicum of knowledge in reference to the Gladiator games would know who Jin was. Back then they had called him 'Jin the Merciful' or 'the People's Champion'. His fame at one point had surpassed that of the Supreme Chancellor or even of that little Green Freak Yoda. He didn't especially like being famous for beig the greatest killer in a thousand years.

    He awaited their replies with a cantankerous mood settling over him. Kriffin' police, it always comes back to them. Hopefully these ones turned out to be alright.

    Character Sheet:
    Name: Noir Lumiere
    Age: 28
    Species: Myneyrsh
    Gender: Male

    Occupation: Intelligence agent with the Secret Galactic Intelligence Service or SGIS.
    Appearance: Blue crystalized skin, long trunk like nose, four arms, wears black pants, special made white shirt, and special made black jacket. Carries a large duffle back of stuff for his work, and a DL-22 blaster, as well as a Lightwhip and a Neurowhip on his belt. Red lightsaber hidden in his bag...only for emergency use.

    Personality: Brave and quick to action, usually looks out for himself prior to others...but has been know to make exceptions. Not really the brains of a team...but likes to think he is.

    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: Went M-I-A after a mission on Ryloth, presumably to soul-search a bit (Messy ordeal ending in killing a Sith with their own blade.) Found out about his mission while listening in on the SGIS comm channels, and decided to jump in.

    Brief bio: Born on Wayland, was banished for taking interest in electronics. Became an officer for Corsec, spending 5 years learning alien languages and great investigative skills...but mostly how to repair stuff (as, once banished from his tribe, he couldn't help but take an interest in Electronics and how they work) and later for SGIS.
    Met Markus and Sounil on the Ryloth mission, which ended with him brutally murdering a Sith captive with the sith's own blade...which greatly traumatized him. He returned to his ship, only to find it had been stripped down by street gangs, and was never able to relocate his droid, R2.5, and wound up hitch Hiking across the galaxy, vistiting exotic places and setting up connections on distant planets. Also perfecting a way of hacking into ships Comm's to flag them down.
    He picked up a small screen like object on the backwater world of Baar...wich, after some repair, and programming upgrades, became an AI companion and souce of information....a sort of Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy (OOC: Couldn't resist a reference.)
    He and Eddie (ok...another reference...) as the computer would be called, traveled around for a while...before picking up this on a SGIS comm channel. He caught a ride with a Yleslian Rock band, and arrived just in time.

    IC: Noir
    -- Air and Darkness,Commenor

    Noir stepped out of the bands tour ship...nad looked around the garage. Was that the Last Bolt? He knew it was...
    "Eddie?"
    The small square buzzed around from behind him. The 20" screen showing a fairly hansome man's head...with a blue background. One each side of the screen was about a 5" black border, containing speakers, repolsor engines, and various other useful tools. Towards the bottom was a single black dot that was a minute photreceptor.
    "Yes?" the box responded in a average voice.
    "Whats that ship's ID?" Noir spoke, pointing to the craft.
    "Thats the Last Bolt sir." the voice spoke again.
    "Good." Noir said, flipping up the collar on his jacket, and pulling a small pack of Ronto Cigarettes from his back pocket, sticking one in his mouth, and lighting it.

    He took a long drag, then walked into the building. just as the man started his speech.
    "Record." he whispered to Eddie...who did so. While Noir listened, and scanned the room for SGIS agents. There...Markus Carfax and Sounil Mistry. Good...he could probly pair with them.

    As the man finished his speech, Noir turned to Eddie.
    "Ed, save the important stuff, and delete the rest of the fraggin' crap." He took one last drag of the Cig. before tossing it to the ground and crushing it under his boot heel.

    He watched a man step up to the two followed by more people.

    He walked over to the Group. Offering Carfax and Sounil a two fingered salute, he glared at the others.
    "Agent Carfax...Agent Mistry." he said in a delighted tone...Eddie buzzing around behind him. "You have no idea how happy I am to see you guys...I'm looking for a few parteners on this...and being as your the only other SGIS I see in here, is it safe to assume I can work with you guys?"

    "BLESS THE MAKER!" Eddie exclai

    Age: 25
    Species: Human
    Gender: Male
    Occupation: Soldier
    Appearance: Average height, somewhat tanned, short dirty blond hair, wears a dark blue shirt, a green bomber jacket, and long cargo pants.
    Personality: Moody at times, loyal to friends
    Reason for hunting Carmen Sandiego: Revenge, the challenge and the money
    Brief bio: Tanner?s father was a rich businessman, director of a mining company. But Carmen Sandiego robbed them of their wealth. The security holograms had captured a flash of a red trench coat, the only proof that it was the work of the notorious jewel thief. However, the authorities had felt that the there was too little evidence, and decided to drop the case. Tanner was enraged, but knew there was nothing he could do. He joined the Republic Navy, and did well. But when news of the Baron?s offer reached his ears, he knew that this was his chance to seek justice. He immediately applied for leave, and once it was approved, travelled to Commenor to begin the hunt.IC as Tanner Henas
    Commenor, Air and Darkness Casino

    Tanner powered down the repulsorlifts, setting the ship down gently. He shut off the engines and popped the cockpit. With a graceful leap, he landed lightly on the steel flooring. He took in his surroundings, at the same time walking swiftly toward the conference room, where the briefing would take place. He entered the room silently, just as the Baron started his speech.

    Baron Mardox was a stumpy, portly creature. An Ortoloan, Tanner recognized. He stood to the side, listening closely to the alien?s words. The information was sparse, but important nonetheless. He waited until the speech was over, before processing the information.

    ?A scrap of red fabric eh? Carmen Sandiego, without a doubt. Working in pairs huh. Doesn?t sound too bad.?

    The soldier walked over to the door, and took a holorecord. Always useful to have something as a reference. A bearded man caught his eye, and Tanner walked up to him.

    ?Hey there. The name?s Tanner Henas. I was thinking... Maybe we could work together on this? I watch you back, you watch mine??
