Quote: There won’t be a heart left beating.
Daggera was born and raised without parents in the slums of a remote colony at the Outer Rim where she learned to run and to defend herself in the hostile enviroment at a young age. However the local gang leaders law made hem victim of severe abuses that caused in her a terrible effect, forcing her to kill in order to survive.
That changed things. When Daggera discovered her power in the Force she used it hard, painting the slums in blood and turning into a urban beast for years, until she was unevitably discovered by imperail agents and taken to Korriban to become Sith. Little did they know they were training a psychopath excesively aggresive and lacking any kind of feeling, other than the hatred she learnt to develope during her infancy which the Sith taught her to dominate and use.
Daggera is a walking weapon that doesn’t go unnoticed for the oportunistic Sith. Because of that, Inquisitor Zeldorr «adopted» her to teach the subtleties of assasination, Sith consipiration, to control her rage and use her intelligence, and, above all that, to not let anyone to use her besides Zeldorr himself….
For the Sith Warrior I wanted to created an acrobatic, exotic and dangerous Twi’lek much as Darth Talon from the Legacy comic book series. But I didn’t wanted her to be the usual Sith, the idea of a psycopathic Sith looked to me very interesting. She follows the Sith because is the only way for her to feed her urge to kill, she is not attached to the ideology. For the name, I first wanted her to be called Roja (Red from Spanish, my mother language), because of her skin colour, as she was supossed to be known from her entire life; not as a person. Regretably, the name was already in use in the game 🙁 So I came with a weapon name, Dagger, that is her best definition. No dice, so it came the variant Daggera. Thanks to Massive Online Games.
Quote: I am the future of the Sith Order, and I intend to reshape it in my image. The Empire and the Sith belong to me.
Zeldorr, born as Pure Blood Sith from a noble Sith family powerfull in the Force, was enslaved by the Empire being very young due the suspects of treason over his father, who was executed among the rest of the family.
However, Zeldorr inherited his parents cunning and intellegence, which besides his reserved nature and noble education made him different from the rest of the slaves. He was selected to increase the Sith forces at the verge of the war due his evident potential in the Force among other slaves. He learnt the Sith Code and it’s combat discipline and philosophy, but Zeldorr didn’t care about religions and homeland; what he desires is power and to conquer the ranks of the Empire to lead it as he visions it. He doesn’t believe things are white and black, but there are shades and tints and the Sith Empire must drive away from total Dark Side fanatism and to transform in something more versatile. He sees Revan as a vissionary but he lacked the crave for power he posses which he thinks will make him invincible.
His nature is maquiavelic and practical, he doesn’t kill for the joy of it but he does not posses love for anyone but himself. To him everything is a tool and everybody else is a pawn, nobody is friend or foe per se, and that includes his secret «adoption» of Daggera. His charisma, influence and more importantly, his inheritance are his biggest allies….
The inspiration for Zeldorr comes unevitably from Emperor Palpatine himself, a calmly dangerous and scary presence. I discovered by myself later after the character was built with his own personality that his vission and goals are somewhat similar to those of Revan, no Dark o Light attachments for the most part, but he is too selfish to become a people leader, he is most of a tyrant. Not precisely an evil tyrant, but a tyrant nevertheless. For his name, that’s the name I always used for my computer ages ago. Well, I had to add an extra r at the end because, you know, massive online games.
