Legal Status: Property of Tyrell Lorne, killing Alani is not murder as she's not a real person, but Tyrell would have to be recompensed for the loss.
Object of the Purge: As a force sensitive Alani will be killed immediately if discovered by either an Inquisitor or a member of the Emperor's Hand.
Weapons & Equipment: None, though she is quite skilled with knives.
Special Skills: Alani is a force adept. She is a witch and fortune teller. She can feel the emotions of those she concentrates upon, can sense hidden figures or starships, and often gets bad feelings when horrible things are about to happen. Occasionally she receives visions, particularly plot related visions and can call up these visions by taking a complex mixture of psychedelic drugs and entering a trance.
Alani also has several powders and poisons at her disposal. She has been known to blow these in the face of an enemy causing them to hallucinations, horrible weaknesses and other debilitating effects.
Personality: Alani would like to be rich, affluent and free. This, of course, is utterly impossible. With the Empire's recent legalization of slavery, her current ownership of nothing, and with a master who would beat her senseless at the slightest sign of disobedience she doesn't have much hope for her own future.
If provided with such a miraculous opportunity she would set upon it without regard to the feelings or even lives of anyone else. She'd be quite happy backstabbing just about anyone and doing anything to get somewhere, anywhere.
Alani dwelled upon the Twi'lek homeworld of Ryloth. It is a hellish world, tidally locked with its star and almost uninhabitable. Despite that, the Twi'lekki people have thrived beneath the surface and upon the narrow band of surface capable of supporting life.
Overpopulation has resulted in numerous conflicts between tribes. Stone knives and axes affixed to bones considering how rare wood is to these people and many tribes possessed shamans, those were attuned to the force who would guide their warriors in battle.
Alani was one of these shamans. She used her magic to receive visions and portents. She would cast runes and bones. Speak of who should journey on a particular mission and who not, cast curses and sense the feelings of her people and their opponents. When fighting in the eternal darkness being able to sense the presence of enemies was a great boon.
Nothing, of course, prepared them for the intervention of outsiders. The Twi'lekki upon the surface often raided those below for bodies to sell to slavers and enslaved their own people below to farm Ryll Spice. Often, particularly in the outlying regions away from the thin band of livable surface, slavers would bypass the Twi'lekki on the surface and enslave those beneath the surface directly. This was far more difficult considering such tribes lived beneath the ground.
It was this that happened to Alani's tribe. Her tribe had been unable to meet the ridiculous needs of the humans that enslaved them and as a result was taken as a slave to compensate. In truth, everyone was certain that the increased demand was entirely for the human leader to take Alani as his own.
The Attack on the Station
Alani then found herself a slave to the freighter captain that had kidnapped her. Eventually, when his holds were full of spice he took her and withdrew to the surface and launched into space. For two years she served her captain who was astonished by her ability to read his customers and provide portents of the future.
In time, thanks to the successes she made possible, he began to put together a small fleet and challenge other pirates, smugglers and drug runners for their territories. Despite her misgivings the fool, drunk on his own success, decided to take on "The Station". She successfully guided the pirate fleet through the asteroid field simply by feeling her way through it with her eyes closed.
What he had not anticipate was a newly captained Lorne. Attacking a space station wasn't like taking a freighter. With a freighter one simply stormed the ship with every hand. Taking a small city was a decidedly different venture. Captain Lorne was decidedly more skilled and while Alani was capable of providing warning when things turned ugly in the corridors her input wasn't able to make up for her captain's lack of a real plan. After several hours of ambushes and traps in what was decidedly in favour of Captain Lorne the attackers were wiped out, Lorne had cemented his position as leader in most spectacular fashion and Alani's ownership had changed hands.
Since then she has served Captain Lorne well but has never been given opportunity for command, nor allowed her any form of training. He doesn't even let her carry a blaster. Clearly he fears her and rightly so; for she is watching, always watching, and learning the ways of pirating through observation.
