Name: Taron Solo Ka'Kol
Occupation: Jedi Master/Jedi Ace
Taron is tall and athletically thin, with bright grey, almost silver eyes and long red-brown hair. His body bears a few scars from training, and his wrists are scarred from an encounter on Yavin IV, a result of an escape from rope bindings after being captured by a group of Sith there.
Taron wields a matched pair of Silver Bladed lightsabers, the crystals of which came from a necklace belonging to his mother, passed down through the Hapan royals.
He carries an old and battered DL-44 heavy blaster pistol, with some aftermarket modifications that would have made it illegal in a different time. This was passed to him as an old family relic.
He also carries a small military Holdout Blaster tucked into a pocket of his boot, as an old friend of the family had always passed down the parable, "No. Always carry TWO blasters. Just in case."
Taron wears flight suits in traditional colors, eschewing the traditional robes for all but ceremonial purposes. His utility belt is filled with a data pad and comm link, rebreather, grappling hook, food and hydration capsules, a few spare power packs for his blaster pistols, and a small investigative kit. He also carries a small vibroblade tucked into a hideaway pocket on his other boot, and a Pilot's survival kit with signal equipment and ration capsules sewn into the padding of his flight suits.
Basic, Old Hapan, some Huttese and Catharese from his master.
Description of Abilities:
Taron found his niche in the Guardian caste of the Jedi Order. His desire to harness his emotions through discipline led him to crave the mastery of the traditional Jedi weapons, lightsabers and the Force. Through his devotion to these arts, Taron manages to quell the storm that boils inside him. But he found his true calling in the cockpit of a starfighter. Taron is not only a Jedi Ace, but the Order's Premier Instructor for new pilots. His ancestry served Him well, and it comes through in his skills in a star fighter.
Taron is determined and headstrong when he believes himself right, though he is not too stubborn to see compromise. He is a skilled negotiator and mediator, and is very personable, finding an appreciation for the point of view of all beings. He's also quick to make jokes to lighten the mood, and possesses a love for making others smile.
Taron worries of what he calls the "storm" that rolls inside him. He has also been known to have a hard time letting things go, and he has been known to be outspoken or brash about it at times. He also has the old family traits of being sarcastic and a bit arrogant at times, and he loves to argue for the sake of argument.
Taron is happiest seeing others happy. Making jokes and soliciting laughter are some of his favorite pastimes. He is also highly sensitive to the feelings of others, and doesn't like seeing people unhappy. He has no problem making a joke at his own expense if it brings a smile. Professionally, Taron is self assured and confident, having faith in his studies and abilities, especially in Fighter Combat.
Taron, along with his twin brother, was born to a royal daughter on Hapes. After his brother was taken at 6, Taron felt like a part of him was gone. But when Master Rasi Tuum found him a little over a year later, Taron was overjoyed to be reunited with his twin brother. His Force abilities had manifested a bit later, but had come on strong when they did.
His hopes were dashed, however, when Master Tuum informed him that the Temple had no record of his brother ever being there. After this news, Taron threw himself headlong into his studies. He accompanied his master along on numerous missions throughout the Galaxy.
During one investigation on Yavin IV, Taron was captured by a group of Sith led by Darth Insipid, and was presumed dead. However, he managed to escape and returned to the Jedi to recover. After this incident, he was knighted due to his handling of the situation and trust in the Force for guidance.
Taron continued to grow and learn, training and conducting missions for the Order, until the assault on Coruscant. Taron was among the few Knights and Masters who were able to get off-world before the Temple was leveled. During the escape, Taron's former Master was killed, as was his apprentice.
Now Taron, along with the other Jedi, has devoted himself to rebuilding the Order and restoring its place as the bastion of Peace and Good in the Galaxy, though he wrestles with the familiar presence he felt on Coruscant during the assault and evacuation. They've arrived on Tython, the ancestral home of the Jedi, deep in the core of the Galaxy.
Once there, Taron was appointed as a Jedi Master and a member of the Jedi Council as they rebuilt their order. He also began standing up Ganner Squadron, an elite group of Jedi Pilots flying Incom XJ-9 Stealth-X Fighters. As Ganner Leader, Taron hopes to blaze to swath through the Sith Space Navy and reclaim territory for the Federation and the Jedi, forcing the Sith back to their rightful exile, and restoring peace to the Galaxy again.
