Tycho is well-used to piloting freighters in the mid-rim. Being a contracted pilot by a major shipping corporation means that you don't get to own" your own ship. You have to take whatever the higher-ups authorize. Usually cheap junk. Most recently it was a special line of Spacemasters that had no shields, weak armor, and a single ion cannon - everything was committed to maximizing cargo capacity. But they still expect you to make deadlines, avoid pirates, and deliver the goods intact. That means you are gonna have to maintain your ship at a pretty high level. Tycho is versed in the hyperlanes of the mid-rim and expansion region, but is a little out of his element in the Outer Rim. He's not much of a charmer, but he knows that you have to grease the right palms to get where you need to go sometimes.

Recently, Tycho ran into trouble when his shipping union was dealing with an Imperial embargo. The Corporate leadership learned a little too late that Imperial authorities had just imposed a 50% tariff on all deliveries to the Gran on Kinyen. Short on cash and not wanting to miss out on a dearly needed payoff , Tycho convinced many of the pilots to slip through the blockade and deliver the supplies to the Kinyen black market anyways, where they would surely be disseminated to those who needed them. His act of defiance lost him his ship and his job, and has left him searching for a new line of work that will pay the bills.

Height: 5'6"
Weight: 128 lbs.
Build: Tall, thin (for a Sullustan)
Attire: Officially licensed cargo flight suit with a "Mid-Rim Shippers Union" insignia on the left breast and the right shoulder.
Description: Tycho's uniform is typically covered in engine grease, and he usually would have one or two wrenches in his tool kit. He keeps his ship's manual up to date, because the right schematics are way more important than the right tools.

Tycho is something of a thrill-seeker. He likes to push his ship to the limits, and he loves fixing it up to ensure peak performance. However, when it gets down to it he knows right from wrong and will be a force for justice, if he has to.
