Bio: Gann was born on Balmorra, a world renowned for its weapon and droid manufacturing. His mother had died while giving birth to him and his father, Doran Tarkolinne, was a researcher and designer for Balmorra Arms, and was almost never around due to keeping long hours and frequently working weekends. Despite this, Gann had a decent relationship with his dad. When he was around, Doran was a great father. He would take Gann to sports games, festivals, theatres, or any other place where the two of them could spend time and have fun. He also taught Gann how to shoot and other things when they would go camping in the Balmorran wilderness.

As he got older he started to participate in his fathers work, testing out some of the prototypes. He became an expert marksmen and got well versed in all kinds of weaponry. When he entered his teen years he started to test the different combat droids, testing their capabilities in live combat scenarios. This molded him into an elite soldier and tactician. When he legally became of age he was officially hired on as a tester for Balmorra Arms, allowing him to further experience the various products they produced.

When he was twenty-three his father died in a lab accident when a droid he was working on activated and mutilated him. Gann was inconsolable. While working for Balmorra Arms, he and his father had grown even closer, Doran was both his father and his best friend. In his anger he quit Balmorra arms and joined up with a mercenary group that had been trying to recruit him for years, having known about his tremendous skill he had acquired while being a tester.

He didn’t really fit in with them, though. They tended to be bloodthirsty and depraved, while he saw fighting as just a job. He did enjoy his work, but he didn’t take as much joy in killing as many would suspect. He found happiness through pushing himself to his limits and taking on the challenge of combat, instead of the death involved.

It wasn’t long before Gann left the group and struck out on his own, getting fed up with their insanity. He had built up a reputation while he was a mercenary, though, so he didn’t find it hard to get work as a bounty hunter and bodyguard. He bought his own ship, a VCX-700 Courier he named Deadend, and traveled the galaxy from job to job.

At the age of twenty-seven he got a job that would forever change his life. He was hired by crime boss on Abregado-rae, Cavan Argal, to kill an information broker that had sold some harmful information about him. He took the job, thinking that it was just another scum bag selling secrets they knew nothing about to the highest bidder. He was wrong. He had tracked the broker to a hotel on Nubia and was shocked when he got his first glimpse of his target.

He was looking through his scope at the window of the hotel room the broker was staying in, when he got a glimpse of beautiful blonde hair. Looking closer, he was shocked to see an Angel in his crosshairs. He dropped his rifle to the ground, in so much awe he couldn‘t even think enough to maintain a hold of it. His mind was racing, trying to think of what he should do. He managed to regain control of himself, and knew what he had to do. He needed to protect this precious gem.

Gann noticed a group of men enter the hotel, and recognized them as thugs working for Cavan. He rushed down from the building he was using as a vantage point and hurried across to the hotel. He managed to get there just as they entered the broker’s hotel room and were about to torture her. He quickly drew his two DT-57 blasters and killed every one of the thugs with one shot each. The woman was on the floor, unconscious. He could only guess that she had fainted, not being able to handle the situation.

He picked her up and took her to the Deadend, since it was the safest place he could think of. When she finally woke up he explained the situation to her. Alysha, as she had introduced herself, said that she could go back to the ship she lived on, the Silver Swan, and be safe there, for the time being. He dropped her off there, telling her he would ensure her safety by getting the bounty off of her head.

Gann went back to Abregado-rae and confronted Cavan. Cavan refused to lift the bounty and instead tried to have Gann killed as well. Gann just smiled and easily took care of Cavan’s hired guns. He slowly walked to Cavan as he trembled on the floor and shot the man in the head, ensuring that Alysha was safe.

He returned to the Silver Swan and told Alysha that she was safe now. In thanks, she invited him to that evenings ball aboard the ship. The two of them spent the rest of the night dancing and getting to know each other. After that, he became a regular sight aboard the ship, using it as a base of operations in between contracts. During his free time he spent every moment he could with Alysha. It didn’t take long for the two of them to embrace their feelings for each other and officially started seeing each other exclusively. Now he lives with her aboard the Silver Swan, forever by her side to protect and love her. Taking different jobs when he feels up for it, his reputation enough that he can pick and choose his assignments.
