|Chronology & Political Information|
Former Duelist/Bounty Hunter
|[ Source ]|
Eric Cato doesn't remember much of his past, including his parents or home world. He was kidnapped at a young age and brought to a mobile dueling facility being run by an elite crime organisation known as the Initiative. It moved from one location to another to avoid detection, having discovered an astrogation list of dozens of usable landing areas. He was raised as a dueling slave, forced constantly to prove himself in battle or suffer heavy consequences and possibly death. As he survived his trials and grew into a capable warrior, he discovered his powers with the Force despite not knowing its name.
By his late teens he was devising ways to escape using his new abilities. After a year of planning, he and several other slaves formulated a way to break free and murder their captors. They broke out of their cells, captured a small but fast freighter and left a path of destruction behind them as passing revenge.
As a young adult he worked as a barman and bouncer near the Marina District in Keren on Naboo. His rough upbringing made him an asset to the bar when situations were explosive. Pay was little but as a benefit he stayed in one of the rooms above the bar. He earned a strong reputation within a year as damages were at an all time low. The owner of the establishment, a Twi'lek, hired him on in a new business venture as bounty hunter with a crew of 6 in exchange for a substantial debt. An impounded Ghtroc Class 720 freighter was purchased and designated The Ryloth Damsel. The name was to add further insult to injury as the previous criminal owner had painted a giant risque Twi'lek on the side of the ship. The crew started with local bounties until drawing too much attention to themselves. Wanting to keep discrete, they moved business off-world and traveled the galaxy shipping goods, passengers and serving bounties wherever they could find work.
Thirst for Power
As the years passed, Erik excelled as a seasoned bounty hunter and traveled to many worlds. He discovered clues about the Force through mostly rumours and legends. His investigations would lead him to be seduced by Dark Side's power. An obsessive thirst for Sith knowledge slowly alienated him from his fellow crew members. At 24 he finally found the location of Clan Naga Sadow and sold most of his belongings to pay off all of his debts. He parted ways with the Ryloth Damsel to start training as Sith apprentice under Lilith Stormwind-Versea.
He currently resides at the Shadow Academy where he continues to devour knowledge in the pursuit of greater power.
Athletic build, dressed in fitted matte-black clothing and a cloak for concealment. His face is recognizable by its tiny scars, prominent cheek bones and thin lips. Short, militaristic black hair is combed back to reveal a sharp under-shave. The eyes are pale blue with a hint of gold when not bearing the mark of the Dark side. His voice carries a broken, aristocratic lilt and a low tone as part of his upbringing among a secret sect of slavers.
