Tobias Typho is the son of Gregor Typho, former Captain in the Naboo Security Forces and once head of Senator Padme Amidala's protection detail. Born force sensitive, Tobias was taken to train with the Jedi and was a Padawan during the horror of the Clone Wars. The war was not kind to Tobias, and twice during his training his assigned masters were slain in combat against the droid armies. As the war dragged on, Tobias grew increasingly dejected and apathetic, as many of his closet friends were killed - and he, himself, suffered several serious injuries.
When the Clone Troopers turned on the Jedi at the end of the war, Tobias was recovering in a field hospital on Onecron after losing his leg to blaster fire from a super battle droid. Like Tobias, the Troopers carrying out Order 66 were also recovering from injuries and were not able to combat the wounded Jedi. Tobias fled into the ruins of Onecrons capital city and eluded execution.
Unsure what to do, Tobias first attempted to return to the Temple, but received Master Kenobi's warning before walking into the newly formed Empire's trap. With few options, he then attempted to find safety with his former family on Naboo. In short order, he was captured by the Naboo Security Forces under the command of his great uncle, Colonel Panaka. Before he could be handed over to the Imperial forces, he was liberated by a group of resistance fighters under the command of Padme Amidala herself.
Realizing that a former Jedi would potentially bring more potent attention, Padme insisted that Tobias go into hiding in the Outer Rim. Reluctantly, Tobias agreed. In the ensuing years, Tobias used the skills he had learned at the Temple to become a moderately successful Bounty Hunter. When Amidala was confirmed to be missing, Rebel Intelligence contacted Tobias discretely, hoping that his connection to Padme and Hunter Skills may make the difference in locating the lost Rebel leader.
Tobias' experiences during and after the Clone Wars left him disillusioned with the Jedi teachings. He became jaded, believing that the Republic had grown corrupt and self-serving and that the Jedi, despite all their knowledge and power, had been blind and foolish - and that the only one he could truly count on was himself. This belief was reinforced by the harsh life of the Outer Rim, where the weak and defenseless are preyed upon by the strong. As a Bounty Hunter, however, Tobias was careful to choose his marks, always bringing his targets in alive - if somewhat worse for the encounter - and only taking contracts on murderers, rapists and other miscreants. In this way, he still tried to maintain some balance with the Force, though his connection to the Force atrophied considerably.
His relationship with the Rebellion is somewhat strained. He holds no idealism for restoring the Republic - in his mind, the Republic allowed the Clone Wars to ravage countless worlds, and he is quick to point out that Palpatine was democratically elected by the same government the Rebellion hopes to return to power. His service to the Rebellion will last as long as it takes to find and return Lady Padme to safety - to whom he believes he owes his life. He considers most Rebels to either be green, untested soldiers - for whom he has contempt for their cavalier attitudes toward battle - or naive political idealists that do not understand the insurmountable odds they are fighting against.
The many injuries and wanton destruction he saw during the Clone Wars left him cautious by nature - preferring to size up a situation and cover every angle before making a move. He also has no patients for the mistakes of others, and has harsh criticisms when others step out of line. This, and his attitude in general, as won him few friends within the coalescing Alliance - however, Rebel Intelligence has made it clear that his connection to Amidala and man-hunting skills are vital to the Rebellions survival.

Though you have since been in contact with other Intelligence figures in the rebellion (most notably General Cracken), Shepherd was the one who originally hired you to recover a rogue ISB agent, paying you extra to allow him a day to interrogate the man in secret, before handing him back over to you to turn in for a bounty. It was Shepherd who recruited you into the rebel cause. Though you've never seen his face, he is very persuasive and cunning.
|General Airen Cracken|
Chief of Alliance Intelligence
You are part of Cracken's Network, a wide net of intelligence and counter-intelligence assets. It has served the General well to keep you outside of the normal intelligence and Alliance circles, allowing you to operate covertly even where other rebels are concerned. He is clearly very tactically oriented, and quite strong-willed.
