Bio:

De’Ker was born in a remote starport on Alderaan 27 years before the battle of geonosis. He grew up around livestock and animals and was quite a good herder and beast rider, he joined the Techno Union scout corps at 17 and was trained to fly, drive and shoot, everything a Techno scout would need to find and mark planets with resources useful to the Union. that all changed with Naboo. It seamed that the government was only interested in the rich and powerful senators, and that the law was irrelevant if they didn’t like it. The Guilds tactics were wrong, but they had a legal right to there position. the resulting draconian laws only profited the corrupt and greedy, and helped no one. it was the beginning of the path to Seperation.

He felt that the Rules and restrictions placed on the individual star systems after Naboo were bordering on Despotic. when Naboo’s Palpatine retained the chancellorship because of an imagined threat, he was convinced that the Republic was dead, and that the only way to forge a new and fair one was to secede – to become the thing that the corrupt Palpatine feared. Then the battle of Geonosis occurred, it was reported widely to Techno Union crews, and requests for volunteers for dangerous missions sprang up -almost immediately. To escape from this new republic army that was poised to crush the freedoms of independant systems and bring everyone under the corrupt rule of the greedy senators, De’kar volunteered.

De’kar Volunteered to act as an invasion scout for Techno Union Droid armies, and was carefully frozen in carbonite so he could be smuggled to a target world. secrecy was of utmost importance, so De’kar was not told his target before the freeze, assuming that he could not betray what he did not know, his gear and orders were to be sent along in the cargo hold of the freighter. Given question-answer passcodes, he was put in the Carbonite chamber. That was the last thing he remembered.

Now, 2BBY he is awakened to the world of his fears, the corrupt Naboo senator Palpatine is emperor of a despotic regime, everyone he knew is dead or old, and he has no way of finding them. he is cast adrift to make a new way for himself in this dark and twisted parody of the galaxy he knew.

Quotes:
“everyone just ran off … someone has to fly – and space is usually fairly empty!”
“one of those… I thought you said ‘Run from those’”
“does Alcohol count as fluids?”
“Abe – can you check on my status please – I am still a little groggy. also, I’m a boy, as is made obvious by the honorable Mustache.”
“Bones, you have to pull the trigger, it doesn’t shoot if you don’t pull the trigger”

Song:

Florence and the Machine: Shake it out
Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I’m always dragging that horse around

All of his questions, such a mournful sound
Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues drawn
But it’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart
Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It’s a final mess but it’s left me so empty
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Oh woah, oh woah…

And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t
So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope
It’s a shot in the dark and right at my throat
Cause looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah
