Blaugust the 28th: Captain Albarossa


Sith Pureblood, Gunslinger
"Sorry about the mess."

His name comes from an Italian wine grape cultivar, and means "Red Dawn." It kind of sounds like a good name for a pirate. And Albarossa is decidedly Dark.

Captain Naqis Albarossa is a free trader who family is from the planet Ziost. Unlike many of his species, Albarossa is not force sensitive, and his parents were also free traders, piloting the XS Freighter Apex Fynock. There were more credits in semi-licit arms deals, and Albarossa was among the best until a deal went south on Ord Mantell. Double-crossed by a thief name Skavak, who stole the Fynock along with its cargo of small arms and explosives, Albarossa was stranded on the civil war-torn world with a price on his head from the crime boss Rogun the Butcher, the owner of the stolen merchandise. Scrounging tickets to Coruscant with the help of the Mantellian mercenary Corso Riggs, Albarossa managed to reacquire the Fynock, even though Skavak continued to elude him.

I had issues with my first smuggler that I have documented elsewhere. With Albarossa, I decided to make him Darker, more brutal, and that has helped. He is definitely type to shoot first. To avoid lost affection with the overgrown boy scout Corso, I have run through Nar Shaddaa before Taris, and picked up my wookiee companion, Bowdaar, a.s.a.p. Unfortunately, this means the story missions on Taris are grey and give almost n points, 12x or otherwise.
