Star Wars: Jaxxon for the Cypher System

Jaxxon was born on the planet Coachelle Prime to a small family by Lepi standards. One of thirteen children, Jaxxon was the most rambunctious of the bunch and had dreams of seeing the larger galaxy. However, his family was quite conservative, keeping a quiet house, and his mother had hopes that Jaxxon would grow out of his restlessness and settle down, hopefully to marry a nice girl and father a large family. Despite his mother's hopes, Jaxxon remained uncontrollable, and even before his teenage years, he had spent a decent amount of time in the planet's juvenile remand centers. As the odd one out among his family, Jaxxon decided to go off-world. At the age of twelve, he stole a poorly-guarded freighter and headed for parts unknown.

Years later, while waiting in Locru's Central Saloon, he heard of a quick job for hired guns. Hoping to make use of his mercenary background, Jaxxon answered the call, lining up outside the employer's door with several other hopefuls. The hirer turned out to be none other than Han Solo, a famed smuggler, who, along with his Wookiee co-pilot, Chewbacca, was lying low on the world to avoid the bounty on his head placed by Jabba the Hutt. While there, Solo had answered the pleas of Ramiz, a villager from the nearby village of Onacra, to protect his people from the murderous gang known as the Cloud-Riders. To help him in this endeavor, Solo had decided to recruit as many of the locals as he could, including Jaxxon.
