Name: Hektchik Gender: Female Species: Jawa Homeworld: Tatooine Role: Scavenger/Blaster-for-Hire Bio: The daughter of her clan's shaman, Hektchik grew up believing herself to be next in line for the title. Passed over by her mother, she suddenly found herself relegated to the second-class existence afforded to all other females of her species. Refusing this lot in life, Hektchik pieced together a barely-working blaster rifle and struck out on her own. Her attempts to find work as a blaster-for-hire met with little success, to say nothing of her dreams of getting offworld. Hektchik soon found herself scavenging and trading, just like any other Jawa, only instead of living among her clan in a sandcrawler, she barely scraped by on the streets of Mos Espa. Occasionally she would get a chance as a hired gun, usually when her employer was desperate. She began, slowly, to make a name for herself as a reliable, if cheap, little merc, if you were in enough of a pinch. It was during one of these pinches Hektchik met Tessa Drex. Hired on opposing sides of a dispute, the job went very badly very quickly and the two found themselves stranded together in the Jundland Wastes. Forced to rely on each other to survive, the pair overcame an initial distrust and today remain inseparable friends.
