Star Wars: The Sith War - Character: Brad Olan


Recommended Posts

“He's a gambler, card player, scoundrel, you'd like him”

- Han Solo

Brad Olan's story is a simple one. Never really one for the 'sweat and toil' means of eking out a living that so many others did, he kept his eye out for opportunity. Ever since the basic school system he was always out looking for the next big break. The next winning ticket. The next way 'in'. In these endeavors he found that he was very good at arranging things so that the people around him got what they wanted and that he was at least in part responsible for it(and thus, had them in his debt in one way or another)

As he moved away from the primary school system he found that the things people wanted now cost a great deal more and took a considerably greater amount of effort and resources to get access to. When a member of a certain less-than-reputable organization of sluglike entrepreneurs sent one of its agents to contact him(his reputation as a fixer had apparently spread to the right--or wrong--ears) with an offer to serve as a small time courier, he saw the beginnings of his way 'in'. He was a smart guy, he could go for at least a little while, and if he got caught, who cares? It's not like he was doing anything illegal. It's not like he was smuggling or anything.

Brad did this for a little while until he noticed a holonet transmission of a system-wide Sabacc tournament. What caught his eye was not the game itself, the game looked pretty simple. It was the payout at the end. He decided that night that he was going to do that. He would find later that he was taking to the game like a spacer to the stars. His advancement within the organization was less that rapid, but considerably less dangerous. He found his skills at numbers and probability being put to use as a bookie at a number of... less than public gambling establishments that his employers ran. Meanwhile, so long as he did not affect their profits too terribly, he was allowed to practice and refine his skills at the tables. Now there are few who are not focused professionals that can outplay him and when it comes to facing the house, he always comes out ahead(and so long as he keeps a percentage of his winnings going to management, they tend to leave him alone).

Now, Brad is a relative unknown to the galaxy at large. His gastropod handler has come to the conclusion that he is more of a profit machine if he travels the stars and just keeps on winning. Sure, he has certain payoffs and bribes to deal with to make sure the authorities or other syndicates don't come after him, but beyond that, he keeps on doing what he does, living the good life and rolling the dice.

((NOTE TO PLAYERS OOC -- Most of his history -- and a lot of information about him in general -- is unknown, as he has a Reputation score of "-1" -- Low Profile Feat -- unless you are affiliated with the Exchange or the Hutt Crime Syndicate in which case he has a minor to moderate sympathy score, pending moderator judgements))
