KEDA - LEAD - Any race MALE - AGE 28-40 - A human born on the planet Sullust, Keda grew up around the Sullustan species and various others. As a child, Sullust was a part of the Galactic Republic but after the events of Order 66 and the fall of the Jedi, Sullust came under Imperial rule and many people, including Keda’s parents were killed. Sullust as a whole, remained relatively peaceful as workers accepted the stability offered under the Empire's reign. Keda, like many other Sullustans, got work with the Imperial Army and accepted Imperial occupation as a normality, despite his many aversions to the methods of the Empire. He worked his way up from a low-level engineer to a mid-level science officer aboard an Imperial Star Destroyer. His job is mostly, to inspect and process soil samples from various systems and report the findings, no matter how frivolous they may be. Keda is unfulfilled in his work life and yearns for the day to be free of the Empire. During his time on the Star Destroyer Keda became romantic with Vexa, his subordinate. The romance is new but Keda already feels strongly for her. So strong that he’d rather not reveal his more complex feelings to her.
Female, 26 to 39
VEXA - SUPPORTING - Any Race FEMALE -AGE 25-35 - Vexa is a newly promoted science ensign. She has very little field experience and wants nothing more than to see the galaxy. She thought signing up for the Empire would give her the opportunity and in a way, it has. But she has seen first hand the horrors the Empire commits and wants out. She transferred to the science division to escape the constant grief of working on planets with Imperial occupation. Vexa was assigned to Keda’s team, a job that was just as boring as she wanted, a perfect way for her contract with the Empire to end. Vexa and Keda became close fast and became romantically involved. Vexa is in love with Keda and sometimes loses sight of the fact that their relationship, if found out, could cause them more grief than needed. Nevertheless, Vexa loves Keda and looks forward to their future without the Empire.
