Pono Waniri/Nallo Lanix

Nallo Lanix was a former transportation pilot in the Morseerian militia. The Morseerians are a secretive race primarily known to the galaxy as merchants, but maintain an independent self-defense force on their homeworld in order to protect their interests. Nallo received advanced combat and flight training in the militia, and served proudly for over a decade.

Eventually, Nallo grew restless and bored with life on the homeworld, and decided to leave to explore the galaxy. Once Nallo retired, he found contract work as a pilot and security detail for a Morseerian merchant ship transporting goods across the galaxy. After five years of working for the merchants, the ship's owner drew the ire of Zeelo the Hutt, a ruthless weapons dealer based on Tatooine. The ship's owner had agreed to illegally smuggle weapons to a terrorist cell on Corellia, but his cargo had been impounded by the Corellian Security Force, leaving Zeelo with no profit from the sale.

Zeelo secretly hired a pirate captain to seize the merchant's ship in orbit around Tatooine. Nallo fought valiantly, but was unable to defeat the band of pirates on his own, and was forced to flee in an escape pod in order to avoid execution. Unfortunately, the escape pod landed in the middle of the Dune Sea. Nallo would have perished quickly had he not been discovered by a passing Jawa sandcrawler, which had come to search the crashed escape pod for valuables. The Jawas agreed to transport Nallo to civilization in exchange for the wreckage of the escape pod.

Nallo assumed a new name (Pono Waniri) to avoid the wrath of Zeelo the Hutt, but vowed revenge against the Hutt and his cronies, and hopefully will achieve said vengeance if we ever manage to finish the campaign (it got stale in the middle, so we took a break and have started a new campaign since).
