Valdus Bral by Lin Pal'Ud
NAME: Valdus Bral
FACTION: Clans of Mandalore [CoM]
RANK: Mandalorian , Alor of Clan Bral
HEIGHT: 2.9m (9' 10") , 3.1m (10'2") in powersuit (Nelvaanian heritage & genetic engineering)
WEIGHT:435kg (960lbs) , 1.2T (2657lbs) in powersuit
EYES: Dark-green mammalian eyes
HAIR: Short, dark hair
SKIN: Light grey with a blueish undertone
FORCE SENSITIVE: Force Sensitive to the point of being able to feel when strong force powers are used within close proximity to his general area and a heightened sense of awareness, Valdus believes these are just natural warrior instincts and, to some degree, it can be argued that they are. When separated from the force this barely impacts him at all and he easily passes it off as him growing older and losing his edge.

Valdus Bral is a wall of a man who wears battle-worn black armor trimmed with gold paint. His eyes are a deep green, almost dark grey. With pointed teeth and near-human canine features, he is neither a looker nor is he all that ugly. If one were to think of a werewolf stuck mid-transformation, remove the fur, and turn the skin a blue-tinted gray ... then you'd have Valdus Bral.
Valdus Bral was born on the planet Tython 46 years ago. His parents had left him in the care of a couple who claimed to know of a lone Jedi who would take him in. However, this did not come to pass. Instead, Valdus grew up as any normal boy would on Tython. He was and still is a great deal larger than the majority of those he had and has met since. Due to Valdus' strange appearance and imposing stature, he did not make many friends though he did have a few.
Valdus left Tython and his foster parents behind when he was 19. His foster parents and he parted on good terms and they had encouraged Valdus to find his own path through life and that he must be destined for something greater than a humble life on Tython. Valdus went to Mos Espa where he was then introduced to the Mandalorian culture through a swift helmeted headbutt to the face with a Mandalorian he had gotten into a disagreement with. After getting to talking, Valdus grew to like the straight forward and rough demeanor. Valdus explained his situation and the Mandalorian saw great potential in the large and headstrong boy.
Years later Valdus began his formal training and indoctrination into the Mandalorian clan on Kerest. After ascending to the rank of Aloruss Valdus parted ways with his clan. The leader had grown averse to the traditional interpretation of the Resol'nare, which did not sit well with the conservative Valdus. The pattern of joining, ascending, and moving on continued for the next four years. He had great leadership characteristics and an unwavering sense of honor, but those who he had once looked up to continued to fail his high expectations.
At the age of 25 Valdus made his first visit to Mandalore and took on several assignments there. Everything from bounty hunting to serving as a soldier in the company of a Mandalorian commander. His service and the service of his fighter flight over Uvena Prime earned him an Honor Award as well as the beat-up ship he had flown during the battle; the M22-T Krayt Gunship. Twenty years later and Valdus still proudly flies his ship, worn as it is.
After several bounties, hunts, and battles, Valdus is planning his last trip to Mandalore. Valdus plans to stay there for his remaining capable years, then retire to a comfortable Ewok tree-hut on Endor where he can spend the rest of his days as he desires. Valdus has many stories to tell, many trophies he holds in esteem, and his metal-crafting knowledge to pass on to the next generation.
Valdus owns a worn out M22-T Krayt gunship that was awarded to him for his service during a war that lasted several months over the planet Uvena Prime. This ship is heavily armed as standard, however, it is only barely classified as battle-ready. The ship is in need of constant and sometimes major repairs. Some parts for the gunship are so hard to find and restricted that he has had to compromise, further increasing the amount of future upkeep.
