Cita: Dangerous jobs are my specialty. I’m in. 

Background: Escorbuto was a slave hardened under severe conditions. He was aquired by a Mandalorian Clan due his endurance and he learned with them all that must to be know about weapons, armor, merc work and mandalorian honor. The Clan was employed by the Sith Empire to reinforce the Mandalorian Blockade and to hunt smugglers. In a fatidic mission, the Clan was wipped out while chasing the skilled smuggler Sfroch


After that, Escorbuto took what he could and fled to Hutt Space, where he started to build his path as bodyguard, thug and later with already some reputation, bonty hunter. Escorbuto respects the Mandalorians, but he is too much an independent entity.  He thinks profesionality is the only way  to climb in his job, and fulfilling the contract no matter the counter offers that may arise. Despite enjoying the challenges and violence of his job, he is not a loose trigger. He only kills when the contract demmands it; compasion and rage are not part of his personality….

Character References: I didn’t need much to build Escorbuto. He is a version of Boba Fett, mysterious, silent, profesional. For his name, it means Scurvy translated from Spanish, my mother tongue. That cames from the video game Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, where in a cemetery we find a tombstone to one Fester Leach where it can be read the great pharse: «Kiss me. I got scurvy.» Well, that’s it. A tribute. escorbuto badge escorbuto body

Background: 

Zimnik was born and raised in the remote Chiss Space, and like a good patriot she soon started her studies and formation to serve in the eficient and very unkwown security and spionage of the Chiss Ascendency.

But Zimnik looked beyond the Chiss homeworld, she admired the eficiency of the Empire, it’s impressive organization, talent, power and ther order that it establishes over it’s worlds. The alliance between the Chiss Ascendency with the Empire and her own merits allowed her to enter into the service of Imperial Intelligence, despite the mistrust of her own comrades and other imperial subordinates. Zimnik took a great number of undercover missions, most of them succesfully thanks to her cold intelligence, speed and reaction skills. However, her job has removed almost all empathy in her person, a necessary evil for her duties. To her, the world is the Empire, but she thinks it’s being dragged by the Sith, who she considers to be ineficient and dangerous fanatics that drive the Empire to caotic and unnecesary dangers and crisis. Because of this, Zimnik cannot help to show her contempt towards the Sith ranks, which puts both her career and the Agency in the frightening scope of the Dark Council….

Character References: 

As I told about the Nezi Legacy, Zimnik comes back from 1994/5, when I drew an unifinished sci-fy comic and used that name for a character which I identified with. Since then it has been used to name other avatars in several video games, like X-Wing, etc. Zimnik  as the Chiss woman was created for a mod that never came to light for KotOR, which tried to bring to light some cut content (planet Slheyron). there Zimnik was the leader of a Smuggler Ring at a galactic escale. The incarnation of the Imperial Agent Zimnik  is an exact copy as I envisioned her back in 2008/9.
