Kekit was the leader of a small Jawa clan being oppressed on Tatooine by a tribe of Tuskens. Jennica Pierce saw an opportunity to form a much needed alliance with the Jawas in order for Rebel forces to better navigate the sandy terrain of Tatooine, so she offered to help in their plight with the Tuskens. Saponza and his partner played an integral part in this campaign, earning Kekit's respect and a promise of future aid from his clan.
Saponza is a battle-hardened smuggler and mercenary, known for his smooth talking ways. After the Battle of Yavin, Saponza and his partner return to Tatooine to set up a business. Hoping to leave their lives as mercenaries behind, they nonetheless become involved in a conflict with Jabba the Hutt. Eventually they are caught up in the Galactic Civil War and forced to choose a side.
Before the Battle of Yavin, Jennica was a moisture farmer on Tatooine but the Empire's search for two droids destroyed both her family and her farm. Seeking justice, Jennica joined the Rebel Alliance as a special forces agent serving on Tatooine. With the help of a Jawa associate named Kekit, she has knowledge of threats to the Rebellion on Tatooine, including information about Jabba the Hutt's operations. As the Galactic Civil War broadens, she is pulled into the conflict.
Ex-senator Johhar Kessen, hails from the forested planet of Dandoran, in the Doran system. While not having been a very politically impactful planet, it's hub of gambling and smuggling offered Kessen the unique opportunity of creating a vast network of contacts and influence throughout the galaxy's seedy underground. Known to be quite over confident and even a bit of a chauvinist in his dealings with his associates, Johhar is often preoccupied with big game hunting. He owns a rifle that he's named "Karina."
Kada is a young female Devaronian who has worked for Jabba the Hutt in recent years, in charge of “security.” Kada was hired by Jabba because of her extensive network of smugglers and mercenaries in the underground, as well as her reputation as the progeny of a well know and dangerous merc, Arann Jahr. Arann was mysteriously killed during a routine smuggling operation which has propelled Kada’s desire to embed herself in his world. In the relatively few years working as a merc liaison and security expert, Kada’s exemplary work did not go unnoticed by important smugglers throughout the galaxy. Kada is known to come off cold, but is not without humor, which is often relayed sarcastically. She’s shadowy and mysterious, and while appearing to be an unsavory and untrustworthy character on the surface, is in fact, extremely loyal and dependable.
Known as "Iron" Liana, her associates in the smuggling business often describe Kor as "stubborn as a zakkeg, and twice as mean." Liana Kor often finds herself entangled in conflicts between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire, as she often targets arms shipments for her pirating and smuggling operations. She has no love for either side, and will often attempt to play both sides to get what she wants. This hasn't earned her much respect, but is widely know not to be trifled with, as she lives up to her nickname.
It has recently come to light that Nhego Roolan's mysterious past intersected with that of Kada Jahr, and more interestingly, with that of her father Arann. While Arann's death remains a puzzle, some signs point to Nhego and Arran's past partnership in a large smuggling operation. Nhego is a dark and brooding individual, and often hard to track down. His interests lie mostly in personal acquisition of power and credits, but is sometimes found provoking small forces of the Rebel Alliance or the Empire into battle, or attempting to manipulate Kada into joining him.
