One of the mid-level leadership of the Proletariat, Gromis Vash personally works station sanitation down in the Depots, overseeing work crews that keep the station functioning. He is slightly grumpy, although it's something of a cover. He enjoys a good drink and can often be found after-hours in one of the Under-Market cantinas.
Weapons and Armor
- Merr-Sonn Model 53 'Quicktrigger' Blaster Pistol: This is a reliable and easy to maintain pistol which is popular on the fringe as repair materials are hard to come by.

- Equipment: Built-in Comms Suite
- Discovered as a very young child by Jedi Master Yula Braylon to be force sensitive. Force sensitives are rare among the Verpine and considered to be outside of any hive. Taken to Jedi Academy/Temple to be trained.
- Met and befriended Bas Yagg while at the Academy.
- Was not accepted/did not progress to become a padawan. Instead joined the Jedi Service Corps.
- Was aboard the Jedi Cruiser the Eruditius, along with Bas Yagg, Hastara Xeqedi, Zosa Vuren, and DZ-LL when Order 66 was carried out.
- When Order 66 was given, Bas Yagg overheard the commands given them, including the death of the Jedi and the Medical Corps.
- Frightened, he hid instead of warning Master Mesq or his fellows.
- Exploration Corps archivist and researcher Vinon Pellaeon called out to Master Mesq, but his offer of safety was treachery, as clone troopers were waiting.
- Zosa Vuren fought beside her master, a fight in which her lightsaber was destroyed. She managed to grab her khyber crystal from the wreckage of it, and her master shoved her away into a hiding place...right on top of Bas!
- The two escaped through air ventilation while Master Mesq fought and died.
- While in the ventilation, the two find the tiny Hastara Xeqedi, who is hiding from the scary men with guns. Zosa Vuren and Bas Yagg convince her to come with them.
- Tr'll was hidden by a delegation of Slayn & Kopril technicians. One of their techs had been killed by stray blaster fire, so they garbed him in Tr'll's uniform, and dressed him in one of theirs, hiding him among them.
- From his place among them, Tr'll watched as Vinon Pellaeon betrays other Jedi Service Corpsmen to the clone troopers, who cut them down with blaster fire.
- As the troopers continue to pursue other Jedi aboard the vessel, Bas falls out of the ventilation right into the midst of the Verpine!
- This draws the attention of the clone troopers, who start to come back.
- Tr'll quickly hides the padawan and the little Dathomiri girl in one crate.
- But as the Verpine technician Zix'itz'l is hiding Bas Yagg, Vinon sees them hide the besalisk away. For whatever reason, he doesn't betray him, simply smiling and walking away.
- The Verpine quickly leave, and the clone troopers are content to let them go.
- The traitor Vinon Pellaeon claims the astromech DZ-LL for himself.
- Vinon Pellaeon esconces himself at the University of Lorrd in the aftermath, and DZ-LL becomes more of an archive/data droid than an actual astromech.
Arrival in the Halo Frontier
- The group arrives in the Halo Frontier aboard the Slayn & Kopril freighter.
- Tr'll is given low-rate contract work with Slayn & Kopril.
- They are not an actual employee of the company, but frequently works outsourced jobs that are particularly menial or dangerous for them.
- Makes ends meet by taking on other mechanics and engineering jobs, particularly doing repair work for the various services of the Halo.
11 IC - Pacification of the Halo Frontier
- The Empire arrives in the Kanz Sector, and the Halo Frontier Systems Force is dispatched to oversee its pacification.
- The oligarchs of the Halo Station put up a degree of resistance, but the invasion of the station by stormtroopers and the public execution of those oligarchs ends that quickly.
- As part of their contract with Slayn & Kopril, Tr'll is working salvage on the forest world of Kruzim.
- Among the ruined Clone Wars-era ships, they find a much older ship. Salvaging it, they find a still-working navcomp array, which contains navigational data that seems to suggest a destination within the Void of Chopani!
- One of the other salvage workers calls in a standing bounty on the data with the Worldseeker Corporation, and tries to take it from Tr'll, who evades them.
- Desperately, Tr'll calls in help from Zosa Vuren to get them off Kruzim with it.
- Zosa Vuren and Tr'll have a running fight with mercenaries hired by Worldseeker to recover the data, culminating in a rescue by Torvall Kres, who gets them back to the safety of the station.
- Tr'll hides the data after finding that it is incomplete.
- The Worldseeker Corporation offers a hefty bounty for the discovery of a new planet within the Void of Chopani.
- This instigates a big "world rush" by those anxious to win that bounty for themselves.
- Halo Board member Lesla Bille announces that he's seen a vision: the new planet within the Void will be found by holy searchers from the Sokrinti Disorthodoxy!
- They continue to harass Tr'll for the data, even breaking into their rooms several times hunting for that data from the Kruzim salvage find.
- Hastara Xeqedi is given a NESTT-class light freighter named the Okugoba by her adoptive mother, Teemah, who jokes that she's going to need a ship if she's the owner of an astromech now.
- After a check-up, Hastara Xeqedi starts making simple cargo runs and other tasks, occasionally calling on friends as needed.
- She also provides transport for some of Zosa Vuren's hunts.
18 IC - Discovery of Parvassis
- A few weeks later, when doing some routine data profiling on his own memory, DZ-LL makes a startling discovery: there is a correlation between the Kruzim navcomp data pattern and the pattern on the Nightsisters artifact!
- Using it, Hastara Xeqedi and DZ-LL are pretty certain they can find the destination both sources refer to, but they'll need some time to do some hunting.
- Hastara Xeqedi approaches the others, asking them to come along as crew on the trip. Tr'll acts as mechanic, Bas Yagg as medic, and Zosa Vuren works as "heavy."
- While searching, the Worldseeker Corporation's own search team send out a medical distress call, which reaches Bas Yagg's comm.
- After a moment of hesitation, he ignores the summons.
- The Okugoba arrives on the temperate plains-and-forests world, and have been there doing planetary scans and basic surveying when a ship from the Sokrinti Disorthodoxy arrives.
- While the Gandrians are recording their victorious "discovery," the crew of the Okugoba shows up and invites them over to their encampment, ruining their assumption of victory being live broadcast back to the Halo Frontier.
- It is a moment of distinct humiliation for Lesla Bille and the Disorthodoxy, though it makes the crew of the Okugoba rather beloved by many in the Frontier. (Even while it makes several of them very uncomfortable, thanks to the public attention).
- Upon returning to Halo Station, the crew applies with Worldseeker Corporation for the reward bounty, only to discover they have accidentally signed away any rights to the planet in exchange for a pittance.
- While in station, the Okugoba is trashed by unknown assailants. The Worldseeker bounty is just enough to get her up and running again...mostly.
- Nonetheless, the crew of the Okugoba uses the new-found attention to get jobs and keep getting paid.
21 IC - Light in the Void Chronicle Begins
- Though it has only been three years, everyone seems to have forgotten the Okugoba and their crew entirely. Ah, fickle fame.
