- ―Gui commanding his DUM Pit droid to grab his Hydrospanner
A Jedi Knight and tech-junkie, owner of the Sacred Heap and purveyor of relics and artifacts, Gui Sol is the product of a Kiffar Freedom Fighter, operating under the banner of the KUDF and a beautiful Human Colonist's love. A survivor of the bloody reign of Cy Thuron, Gui was discovered on New Tython by a Jedi with an affinity for finding orphaned younglings, his name, Liam Torun-Urr. Trained under the tutelage of his Master Xirini Kurai and his new family, the Knights of Allusis, he has secured his place among the Order of Sentinels. Because of his valiant effort and bravery when standing in the face of Darth Pravus' conquering warriors, Gui now sits on the Summit of Clan Odan-Urr, training younglings and new recruits as the Clan's Rollmaster on the planet Kiast.
Finding A Home
New Tython had been ravaged and the face of the Planet was left in ruin. Niko Sol, a Kiffar warrior and high ranking official of the KUDF was a thorn in Cy Thuron’s side throughout the duration of his dark campaign. Utilizing guerilla tactics, Niko was able to strike and evade, weakening the resolve of the opposing forces. This, of course was enough to paint a target on his head as Thuron's henchmen hired Assassins and Bounty Hunters alike to track and kill him. Naturally elusive and cunning, Niko was able to fly under the enemy radar. These same skills were used when he smuggled his pregnant wife to New Tython in order to escape the clutches of the Galactic Empire shortly before its fall. But alas, the freedom fighter’s luck had run out.
For shortly after the war, Niko was gunned down in the streets and would leave behind a wife and child. Her name was Sera and while she was not a Soldier or Freedom Fighter she was in her own right very wise. She was the perfect mother but was sadly unable to make due with no true source of income, just managing to ‘get by’ after her Husband’s murder. Her entire world was turned upside down and all she wanted was to provide for her son. Fortunately, the hope that she longed for was on the horizon as a group of Jedi Knights descended upon the planet and with them brought peace.
Leaving It to Chance
It was 35 ABY, The young boy named Gui, after his great-great grandfather and founder of the Sol Clan, was just turning thirteen years of age. He and his mother were caught in a struggle for survival but despite that, they remained happy. They had each other and that's all that mattered in the scheme of things. Sera took care of the household, while Gui, a droid craftsman and hacker, did whatever he could to scrape together the credits needed to survive. It wasn't a luxurious life but it was a comfortable one.
The boy was special and even before he was born, Sera could feel the Force turning within her Force sensitive but untrained belly. She knew that one day he would achieve more than she could ever provide. She knew that one day someone would find him and take him away from her so when the Jedi arrived, she knew that it was divine intervention. Her decision was seemingly made for her when a man named Liam Torun-Urr, by chance, visited their hovel.
The Jedi would go on to speak of great things, sensing the Force within Sera and Gui before even uttering a word. While she turned down the offer he proposed, to train them both, Sera declined, realizing that her moment to shine had passed. She was still mourning the death of her husband and feared the possibilities of what could happen to her and others if she were to accept. Instead, she relinquished her rights to Gui and reluctantly sent him away with the old stranger.
- "I admire the Kid's skills, but he's reckless"
- ―Sa Ool, speaking to Liam Torun-Urr
At first the Jedi of Odan-Urr didn't want to train Gui because of his childish attitude but saw within him a great potential and grew to admire his skills. A technical prodigy, they eventually softened their stance on one condition. He was to be trained by Xirini Kurai and the Knights of Allusis. Gui would have many teachers over the course of his training, taking with him a piece of every K.O.A member. They were the best of the best and Gui was able to excel under their tutelage. While rough around the edges, impatient, cocky, and headstrong, Gui was being shaped into a Sentinel; to become a bastion of light, a candle in the darkness.
While the training was far from easy, Gui never allowed difficulty to sour his mood and was often able to cheer up even the most disgruntled Masters of his Clan. He was not only a rising star but a shining one. While he may have been a bit naive, he always seemed to find the silver lining in the darkest of clouds. The wise old Masters attributed this to his rough upbringing and his innate ability to make a good thing out of nothing. To always move forward without looking back. The future was always in motion, as was Gui's motivation and progress. He pressed on, even when things fell apart, he was eager to put the pieces back together. Not just physically but emotionally.
War Of Attrition
Muz Ashen felt that allowing the Jedi into the Brotherhood would enable him to keep them under his thumb. Darth Pravus, on the other hand, had different plans entirely. He laid waste to New Tython, scattering the Order, destroyed its cities and used the darkness to devour whomever he could in the massacre. Gui, was one of many valiant Jedi who fought back and did not allow the darkness to overcome him. Yet, he was devastated to find that many of his close friends were slain in the raids. He personally protected the younglings for an extended period of time and never let his light burn out as he became an inspiration in perilous times. A collector of ancient lore and artifacts, after the bulk of the attacks and before escaping to the Glorious Jewel, he managed to gather pieces of the fallen temple which would later be used as tools for training. His psychometry allowed him to unlock memories and lessons which would prove to be an asset as he went into self-exile, atleast for a time.
Fleeing to Nar Shadaa, soon after arriving, Gui met a dark skinned swindler named Abe Vinton. The man was street savvy and wise, albeit dishonest and selfish. Seeing a great opportunity to utilize Gui's reflexes for his own gains, Abe promised to keep Gui's lineage and Force sensitivity a secret as long as he agreed to dance with the devil and become a Swooper. In return for making him credits, Abe would take him under his wing and teach him the necessary evils of the planet's crime laden streets and operations. Agreeing to the terms, Gui became a member of the Volant Fleet which was more of a gang than it was a racing team.
The exhilarating new lifestyle was something Gui clung to. It not only helped him amass wealth, fame, and useful knowledge. It kept his mind busy and was therapeutic after witnessing his friend's extermination. The track was his new home and the streets of the underworld became his stomping grounds. Fortunately for Gui, he never forgot where he came from and often got into trouble when trying to insert himself into the affairs of others. Whether he was trying to save someone from a petty thief or ousting a corrupt dealing, Abe would scold him for drawing too much attention to himself and the crew.
A Life Debt
It should be noted that when Gui was Swoop racing, he was also the participant in many covert operations. On one of these self-motivated missions, Gui came across an Aleena family being brutally slaughtered by a group of soldiers serving the Iron Throne. They thought that the family had information on rogue Jedi, so, they carried out their Master's ordered and slayed them all for their lack of cooperation, when in reality they knew nothing, save for one. Gui leapt into the fray and saved the remaining Aleena, who was so overwhelmed with his act of kindness, he swore to protect the Kiffar for life. His name was Munch and he would prove his own potential.
The Light And The Knight
The Sacred Heap
Established in 37 ABY, Gui Sol's droid emporium at first glance is a rustic shop filled with parts and machinery that pour out into the streets. It is located in an area off the beaten trail but close enough to the City for convenience. It is adorned with antennae which cover the sod covered roof, rusted doors which are always open and a hospitality typical of a Jedi. If you venture deeper into the junk filled workshop you will approach a dorm with a ratty bed and an assortment of droids in different stages of completion. At the end of the hallway leading to this dorm, if you split to the left and descend in the turbo lift you will see a large and open underground hangar with a dome roof that opens up to the elements.
Gui's vessel has seen its fair share of scuffles. While not an impressive piece of machinery on its own, Gui's obsession with tinkering has lead him to modifying certain aspects of the Ship. Used mainly for scavenging runs, Gui has an entire, small-scale workshop, personal quarters, and mounds of useful parts at his disposal. In the rear of the Ship is a locked compartment for more "valuable" finds. Seemingly cluttered and disorganized with Gui's personal flavor, the organized chaos is home away from home.
- Note - Treasure Hunter is typically piloted by Munch, Gui's unique sidekick.
