Special Abilities:
Flying Kick: Posla has trained to leap in order deliver a crushing kick. Difficulty: Difficult; Effect: Posla adds +2D to his damage roll if his skill roll exceeds the difficulty number. Failure to beat the difficulty number indicates he is off-balance and her opponent may make an additional attack this round with no multiple action penalty.

Instant Wound. Posla knows how to strike to maximum effect, and inflict severe damage upon his target. Difficulty: Difficult; Effect: If his attack is successful (and is not parried or dodged) and if his skill roll meets the required difficulty number, Posla’s attack against the target character suffers a wound immediately. The wounded target then fall prone and can take no actions for the rest of the round. (Effects of the wound are cumulative.)

Silent Strike: Provided that Posla can successfully sneak up on a target, he is capable of immediately killing him or rendering him unconscious. Difficulty: Difficult; Effect: The character must be within arm’s reach of the target. The character must declare if this is a killing or stunning attack prior to making the attempt. A successful skill roll indicates the target is neutralized. Note: If this technique is used against major NPCs or other PC’s with lethal intent, the attacker must still make an opposed damage roll in order to determine a “kill” result; in such cases however, a success bonus is granted: The attacker gains a damage bonus equal to the margin by which she exceeded the technique’s difficulty number. However, the minimum damage result she can achieve with this technique is Incapacitated, with the target character falling prone and unconscious for 10D minutes. And if the attacker has at least a 6D die code in melee combat, he may use a melee weapon — and the damage bonuses it grants — to deliver the killing/neutralizing blow.

Spinning Kick: Posla has trained to perform a powerful, roundhouse-style kick. Difficulty: Moderate; Effect: Posla can add +1D to his damage roll if his skill roll exceeds the difficulty number. Failure to beat the difficulty number indicates he is off-balance and his opponent may make an additional attack this round with no multiple action penalty.

Cybernetics: Posla has cybernetic prosthetics/braces and neckbrace-like cybernetics reach from his collarbone to the back of his head, and he has partially-cybernetic hands and arms.

Equipment: Code cylinders, E-11 blaster rifle (5D damage, range: 3-30/100/300, ammo: 100, game notes: If the retractable stock and scope are used for one round of aiming, the character gains +1D bonus to blaster), EC-17 hold-out blaster (3D+2 damage, range: 3-10/20/40, ammo: 15), holo-communicator, holster, Imperial long-coat and uniform, rank badge.

Background: Tam Posla was a male human from the planet Milvayne in the Milvayne Authority law enforcement. He earned a reputation as a respected lawman and was assigned to investigate a string of crimes committed by the criminal surgeon Cornelius Evazan and his partner Ponda Baba. However, he was removed from the case. Determined to continue his investigation, he went rogue and became a bounty hunter and vigilante. This led to his discharge from the Milvayne Authority.

During his pursuit of Evazan and Baba on the moon Jedha, Posla met and fell in love with one of their cyborg prototypes named Caysin Bog. Together, they continued their hunt for the criminals. To fund their mission, they joined a group of mercenaries led by the rogue archaeologist Chelli Aphra. The crew took on various missions and eventually infiltrated the Imperial base, Hivebase-1.

At Hivebase-1, Aphra catalyzed the death of Bog at the hands of attackers in order to make Posla fight them. Once their mission was complete, she conspired with the Imperial Magna Tolvan, who stole the vigilante’s attire and left him gagged while she stowed away with the rogue archaeologist. Posla suspected Aphra of being responsible for Bog’s death but continued his hunt for Evazan, tracking the rogue surgeon’s history up until a dead end.

Aphra then asked Posla to help her escape the Imperial wreckage-prison Accresker Jail in exchange for a captive Evazan. The vigilante agreed to a trade and brought an escape shuttle to her at Accresker, taking away Evazan frozen in an ice chunk. However, when being freed from the ice, Evazan used a shape-shifting creature to pretend to be someone else, tricking Posla into thinking he had been deceived. The vigilante returned to Accresker Jail and confronted Aphra, only to be attacked and killed by the assassin droid 0-0-0.

After his death, Posla’s corpse was found and merged into by some Force-sensitive Gundravian hookspores, reviving the vigilante and giving him Force powers. The undead Posla tracked down and pursued Aphra and 0-0-0 on Milvayne, losing them multiple times. When the vigilante later joined an Imperial garrison attacking the pair, he was set on fire by 0-0-0. Before burning up, he fired a shot that triggered a series of events involving mass rioting on Milvayne.
