Doctor Jorhan Prath-Praji, was born to a family of dock workers on the shipyard world of Corellia. With an unremarkable upbringing, he seemed destined to either head into the docks himself, or into the armed forces through the Corellian Defence Forces ‘outreach programmes’. Jorhan was, however, a gifted student of the sciences, something which did not pass unnoticed, and rather than be committed to a life in the docklands, he was granted a scholarship by the Corellian Engineering Corporation (CEC) to attend their partnered University, the University of Corellia. There he was to study engineering, before being hired by the CEC and immediately seconded to the Correllian Defence Force, as a combat engineer, no sooner that his twenty-second birthday.

Jorhan would go on to spend around ten years with the CDF, during which time he was put through combat training, and on more than one occasion sent to the ‘front lines’ of the CPFs efforts to tackle the increasing piracy issues wracking the system.During his time with the CPF, he undertook additional sponsored studies, in biochemistry, weapons development all of which culminated in him being awarded a Doctorate at the University of Corellia around the time of his twenty-eight year.

With his third decade coming to an end, the scientist was allowed to leave the armed forces, and was shocked to see that his skills were in hot demand in the private sector. Head-hunted through an old military contact by a ‘research firm’ on Canto Bight, which was secretly funded by operatives of the Hutt Cartel wherein he took up a post designing bespoke firearms and and adapting droids for his paymasters. For nearly two years he worked in such a capacity, before being moved to Utapau, to work on a well-funding project, one that would change his life forever.

Never being told the name of the project itself, Jorhan was to spend the better part of his thirty-third year in the bowels of the Utapaun planet, with fellow scientists, working on a serum that, if it worked, would unlock the true potential of their paymasters military forces. It was a project he simply could not pass up, and he worked as one of dozens, if not more, scientists working on the project.

Eager to keep the project a secret, as it entered its final testing stage, Jorhan and numerous others were dismissed however, having only seen an inkling of the project's potential, and he was once again, left looking for work. Soon however, the scientist was back on the payroll, this time of the Blackwell Corporation, as a researcher and ‘field operative’. With a decent paypacket, but a great deal of uncertainty as to just what he would be working on, the young scientist decided to ride it out and see what happened.

Almost immediately the young scientist was deployed to so-called ‘Hutt Space’ where he began working as a medical attache to one of the Blackwell Corporations research facilities. Whilst well-remunerated, the assignment was one that Jorhan found incredibly boring, after all there are only so so many acid burns one medic can heal before the day gets dull. He put in for a reassignment, a request which was speedily denied, and so instead, he began taking on ‘extra curricular work’ outside of his working hours, which the young man hoped would pique his curiosity.

It was through such work that he was found and approached by a young alien, a Columi, by the name of Zentropili, who took him onto the board of his start up Droid company. Through such an undertaking, Jorhan had a way to express himself in his work, and he supported the Columi in developing certain droid models, his beady eyes ever on the lookout for new avenues to explore.

Personality & Traits

Jorhan was a spry man, human in origin, with dark hair and brown eyes. He made use of a set of spectacles when deep in his work, and through force of habit wore them in his daily life as a result. Speaking with a clipped core-worlder accent, something of by-product of his education, he was commonly seen in a laboratory coat, sporting the insignia of whomever he was working for at that particular time.

A committed believer in the concept that science could unlock hitherto unprecedented potential in different species, he firmly believed that it was his duty to ‘assist’ the galactic population in realising their own potential, something which, over the course of his life, developed into a hint of megalomania. A talented scientist, Jorhan had an instinctive understanding of biology and biochemistry, which, partnered with his talents with technology and engineering, made him a formidable asset to any organisation or group.

Having been born into abject poverty on Corellia, a great deal of his motivation to perfect his work came from his desire to never again return to the conditions of his youth. As he had been to a high-standard of education in his late teens and early adulthood, he had developed a liking for the finer things in life, and was a lover of core world culture and luxury. Jorhan was a competitive man, yet very pragmatic and unempathetic, focusing on the outcome of his work more than the costs associated with its undertaking. With a highly inquisitive mind, he was always looking for ways to improve upon his designs and undertakings, and would go to great lengths to ensure their success.

Having spent time in the engineering and science corp of the Corellian Armed Forces, he could handle himself in combat, and was able to fly his own ship, use a blaster and melee weapon, with the ease expected of a field operative.

Extremely confident in his own expertise, he was somewhat prone to underestimating other people, something which he was trying to overcome throughout his life. In general, he tried to take a cautious approach to his life, placing his own self-preservation, and the protection of his work, before anything else.

When it came to his engineering work, which he saw as a useful way to raise finances for his true passion, biochemistry, he abhorred mass production (something which had seen him ill at ease with the CEC in his earlier years) and preferred to design bespoke items, for a higher class of consumer. Jorhan’s engineering skills were versatile, and he was able to put his hand to many things, from ships, weapons and even droids.

Equipment & Assets

Jorhan is a man of means, and is often on the move. With his own ship, droid support and and a range of weapons, he is a man capable of making dangerous things happen, to dangerous people. His equipment is listed as follows:

Hi, Nor'baal. We need to fix some things before I can further review your profile.
- This network he's built for himself as a 'Criminal Consultant' needs to be addressed. If he is directing companies to take over their competitors, hide their money and even hire contract killers, he's built a network for himself that would earn him a reputation that exceeds 'unknown' which is where all new characters must begin.
- Credits aren't a problem, necessarily, but I'd also like to amend the part about his parents winning the lottery and him stealing off with the credits, as this also feeds into helping him establish the network I mentioned above.

Please make the following edits and tag me for review. Thanks.

Edited to make the criminal sections more low key, my ambiguity in the original writing made it seem far more high profile than intended.

Likewise, the lottery has been edited to make it clear the holiday was the prize, not millions of credits.
