I'm the GM of our group, which consists of:
Adran Cormus (Human Male, Hired Gun [Mercenary Soldier]) - An Imperial ex-officer whose aggressive attitude and attempts at leadership have caused a few problems for the crew. But he's loyal enough, it seems.
Carrick Reece (Human Male, Bounty Hunter [Gadgeteer]) - A Mandalorian who's search for his family armour carried him into the service of the infamous Vago the Hutt. From there, Carrick met the crew and joined them when it was suggested that Vago would not only fail to pay him, but would very likely attempt to have him killed.
Denma Hawat (Human Female, Smuggler [Thief]) - A skilled thief who found herself indebted to Vago the Hutt, after the crime lord helped her evade capture by the ISB (in a rare display of charity). Teaming up with Carrick, she was sent to find the crew of the Crimson Hawk - but ended up joining them when she and Carrick changed sides.
Eraan Churek (Gand Male, Technician [Outlaw Tech]) - A Gand whose naivity caused him to be captured and convicted by the Empire. Escaping from their custody by sheer luck, Eraan then offered his services to the crew of the Crimson Hawk in exchange for passage and sanctuary.
Hale Zephyrus (Human Male, Colonist [Doctor, Force-Sensitive Exile]) - A prominent doctor that left for the Outer Rim in order to help others, Hale has recently come to discover that he possesses an unnaturally potent sense that might well mark him as Force Sensitive. He hates the idea, and hides it from all around him.
Lancer Drayson (Human Male, Smuggler [Pilot]) - The infamous pirate Lancer Drayson is wanted by the Empire something fierce - and it looked like they might finally capture him, too, when his starship crashed into the Rorak 5 spacestation and he was locked up as a result. However, fortune provided him with an exit... and another starship, the Crimson Hawk, on which to sail.
(NPC) Leena (Twi'lek Female, Smuggler [Thief]) - Leena was once the prized dancing girl for the crime lord Vago the Hutt. But fortune allowed the Twi'lek to escape aboard the Crimson Hawk. Since becoming its unwitting captain, Leena has opened her ship up to others, who formed the basis for the crew as it stands today. The Twi'lek died a heroes death on Nar Shaddaa in the midst of a deadly firefight.
Lofwyroor (Wookiee Male, Hired Gun [Marauder]) - Deadly with his fists, the honourable Lofwyroor was used as a labourer by the Empire right up until the time when he escaped custody. He now travels the galaxy alongside the crew of the Hawk - but dreams of the day when he might deal a savage blow against the regime that destroyed the Wookiee culture.
Thorbin Droma (Human Male, Colonist [Politico]) - The son of an influential Imperial citizen, the journalist Thorbin Droma was disowned by his father when he started preaching about the barbarity of the Empire (truths that he discovered from determined research and crafty friends). Now he's on the run, since his father has placed a bounty on his head - and the Hawk seems like a good place to hide out, at least whilst he prepares for his next big story.
The Crimson Hawk (YT-1300 Freighter) - A starship that once belonged to reviled gangster Vago the Hutt, the Hawk was stolen from him by his escaped slave, Leena. When Leena's death was revealed to the Hutt, Vago demanded that the crew be brought to 'justice', and that the Hawk be returned to him at the same time.
