Edge of the Empire - Under the Heel
Until recently an Imperial sympathizer. His adventures with the crew of the Wayfarer NC-17 have shown him the galaxy isn't so black and white as he had thought.
Rictor grew up on Onderon, catching his interest in technology from his father Dak Tavers, head of the research division of Onderon Royal Engineering. He also took on a bit of the combative side of his mother Melanah who had served close to twenty years in Onderon’s Royal Army before retiring to start her family. He had always looked up to his older brother Gunther, and he in turn was looked up to by his younger sister Trinity.
Rictor was devastated by his brothers death aboard the exploding Death Star and the ensuing fallout with his family. He set off to the stars to find himself and hopefully exact some revenge on those who had taken his brother away.
