STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES:
[+] Astonishing mechanic. Growing up with her brother being a mechanic and within Corellias large ship industry. Also formerly working as one, the things she can't fix is not worth fixing!
[+] Can stand her own in a fight quite well and has a highened pain threshhold, much due to her earlier life in Coronets underworld.
[+] Independent. Largely being raised by her brother and lessons learned from past mistakes, have made her fend for and rely on herself.
[+/-] Possesses some cynical traits which could be both good and bad. Firstly; You will have to try hard to fool or manipulate this twi'lek. Secondly; Assuming that things just doesn't solve themselves, she'll fight for it if it doesn't turn out the way she intended.
[-] Getting close to her is a challange, much because of the above. Going by a ''need-to-know'' basis to strangers, there is few organic lifeforms that she is open to and trust. One is her brother, and the other are... well, might it be you?
[-] A bottle of Corellian brandy could have a better impact on her... Even though she enjoys a good party, she's struggling with some bad habits from her youth, and too much of the good stuff sometimes make her edgy.
APPEARANCE: Being a blue hued rutian twi'lek she's among the more rare ones of her species, second only to the red lethan twi'lek.
She stands at 1.75 meters tall and has a slender, athletic body going well with some feminine curves in the right places.
Her two lekkus are tattooed in a sleek, dark blue pattern as is her cheeks, which tattoos runs below her cheekbones and down almost meeting with her naturally lavender lips. Her hazel eyes shifts in a yellowish green color, which intensity reflects her current mood.
As a smuggler she prefers to keep her attire practical, usually wearing a pair of mid-high black boots which goes outside a black, slim pair of pants with pockets on the thighs, reinforced areas on the knees and pleated stretchy fabric on the inside legs to increase mobility. Often pairing this with a light colored top and a rugged brown smugglers jacket. A utility belt sits loosely around her hips, from it hangs some tools along with a KYD-21 blaster pistol in a holster at her right. The shaft of a vibroknife sticking up from her left boot. Combat gloves and arm protectors adds to the hand-to-hand combat ability.
BIOGRAPHY: Tan'yill, or simply 'Tan' in short, was born in Coronet City, Corellia and raised by her older brother due to an early loss of their parents.
Thanks to being born on Corellia she managed to avoid slavery, which if being born on Ryloth, the twi'leks native planet, is a constant risk. Although, that didn't left her without problems.
CRASH AND BURN
During her school years she grew an interest in music and was for a time drummer in a small rock band, in which she got her nickname of 'Blue'. This was a company that brought her both joy and trouble and which later made her quit school.
What kind of trouble? Well, let's just say the members did more than just jam, often holding up in the Blue Sector, a part of the city with a thriveing underworld, much left alone by the CorSec. This made her make some bad decisions and got her involved in rather questionable aquaintanceships and criminal activities. Violence, extortion, spice... Much became common practice in her life. The rest dwells inside her which few but her brother and closest friends has an insight in.
After quitting school, her brother got her a job as a mechanic at the same shipyard as he worked on. Already familiar with the basics in speeders and atmospheric aircraft which she had learned from her brother earlier in life. She worked hard the following years at the shipyard and at the age of twentythree she had made herself a reputation as one of the best mechanics in town.
BECOMING A SMUGGLER
Since childhood days Tan was intrigued with the thought of exploring the galaxy and did often hang around the large spaceport of Coronet, doing freelance mechanic jobs and making herself a network of contacts with smugglers, traders, pilots and alike.
She soon befriended a Duro smuggler who offered her a job aboard his ship. Said and done, she took her talents for mechs with her and they became companions. Leaving Corellia also meant to cut with her old life, a considerable risk as it was not seen upon with friendly eyes by her former 'companions'. She know if they ever get a hold of her again, she will be in for some serious trouble.
Tan got a hooked on the smuggling business and when her friend and companion decided to retire, she got to take over the ship and his contacts.
She rarely rejects a job offer and has served both sides of the war, crimelords and others in the galaxys Underworld. Doing the job mostly as a lone-wolf with only her two droids as companions, not getting her nose too deep into her customers businesses.
