Slarr's Sail Barge

When he needs to travel on Nal Hutta, Slarr the Hutt prefers to do so in style. That's why his underlings maintain an Ubrikkian Luxury-class sail barge, one outfitted to suit Slarr's personal tastes.




The Sail Barge
This vessel, like many of its type, has two decks, along with a raised platform in the rear. The upper deck is partially open to the sky above, excepting the billowing sail canopy. From it, stairs lead up to the aft platform as well as to the main deck below. There is also a cargo lift used for loading supplies and Slarr himself. Beneath the aft platform is a small space for crew members and guards, along with a refresher unit. The main deck boasts a full kitchen and pantry, along with a broad main chamber. This area features shuttered windows that can be opened for passengers to view passing scenery or any sort of spectacle arranged for the Hutt's enjoyment.


Tescali Ru, Human Pilot (Rival)
Brawn 2 Cunning 2 Presence 2
Agility 3 Intellect 2 Willpower 2

Soak: 2
Wound Threshold: 12
Strain Threshold: 12
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Computers 1, Cool 2, Coordination 1, Gunnery 2, Mechanics 2, Perception 1, Piloting—Planetary 3, Piloting—Space 2, Ranged—Light 2, Streetwise 1, Underworld 1, Vigilance 2

Talents: Dead to Rights, Full Throttle, Improved Dead to Rights, Improved Full Throttle, Let's Ride, Skilled Jockey

Abilities: One rank in each of two non-class skills

Equipment: Pilot's jumpsuit, vest, blaster pistol, comlink

Tescali Ru is a young Corellian pilot whose sense of self-assurance borders on cockiness. Even so, she is more than qualified to pilot Slarr the Hutt's sail barge. While the job doesn't exactly challenge her abilities, she sees it as a stepping stone to piloting a starship and making important runs on behalf of her Hutt boss. Until then she is content to fulfill her current assignment. Even so, she dreams of having her own ship, contending with the powers that be, and perhaps even challenging Solo's record for the Kessel Run.


Other Characters
When traveling on his sail barge, Slarr the Hutt is generally accompanied by his majordomo, Eom Nivlem; various Nikto servants; Tenrep Cray, his chief of security; and multiple Aqualish bodyguards.


Using the Sail Barge in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
This vehicle can be incorporated into an Edge of the Empire campaign in many different ways; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
  • PCs who are working their way into Slarr's good graces might be assigned as guards for one of his expeditions, and thus could face danger when the Hutt's enemies stage an attack.
  • On the flipside of the credcoin, the same characters could be hired to stage an attack while Slarr is out for a voyage, thereby facing off against the many guards who are protecting him.
  • Should the sail barge suffer a catastrophic breakdown while floating through one of Nal Hutta's many swamps, the PCs could be called upon to stage a rescue.

The Itinerant Gungan

There's an old saying in the galaxy: “It's a dirty job, but some being's got to do it.” This summarizes well the career of Lulu Ogrin, a Gungan who lives on Nal Hutta and works for Slarr the Hutt. Piloting his skiff, Lulu performs two main tasks. One is that he explores the swamps of that planet, harvesting pockets of swamp gas for use as fuel. The other is that he disposes of refuse for his boss, no questions asked. Sometimes that latter part requires him to find places where recently deceased organic remains need to be buried so deeply that no one will ever see them again.

Lulu Ogrin, Gungan Refuse Hauler/Swamp Gas Harvester (Rival)
Brawn 2 Cunning 2 Presence 1
Agility 3 Intellect 2 Willpower 2

Soak: 3
Wound Threshold: 12
Strain Threshold: 12
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 1, Cool 1, Coordination 1, Mechanics 1, Melee 1, Negotiation 2, Outer Rim 1, Perception 2, Piloting—Planetary 2, Ranged—Light 2, Streetwise 1, Survival 3, Underworld 1, Vigilance 2

Talents: Forager, Heightened Awareness, Natural Hunter, Quick Strike, Rapid Recovery

Abilities: One free rank in Coordination; Hold Breath: Gungans can hold their breath for a number of rounds equal to 10 times their Brawn rating before they risk suffocating; Natural Swimmers: Gungans never suffer penal- ties to movement while traveling through water.

Equipment: Heavy clothing, blaster pistol, force pike, comlink

Lulu performs his assigned tasks with a typical Gungan outlook—he is friendly and cheerful, even to the point of seeming obnoxious. That mask conceals a calculating individual, however, one who is always on the lookout for opportunities to better his position in the galaxy. Should he be given a chance to betray his Hutt master and escape his life of drudgery, he might just take it.


Using Lulu in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
This itinerant Gungan can be incorporated into an Edge of the Empire campaign in many different ways; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
  • PCs who are trying to gain employment from Slarr the Hutt might first be assigned to help Lulu with an unappealing task.
  • Alternately, those who are trying to infiltrate Slarr's court might seek out the Gungan and persuade him to help them do so.
  • When an important being turns up missing, and the PCs need to find out what happened to him/her/it, they might seek out Lulu in order to find the body.
  • Should Lulu discover an opportunity to turn the table on his Hutt employer, he could recruit the PCs to help him do so.

Lulu's Skiff
The pride and joy of this itinerant Gungan is his Ubrikkian Bantha II cargo skiff. It is presented below in a format that the GM can print to scale and use for running scenes involving it or similar vehicles.

Wogg the Tusker

The stereotype among Gamorreans is that they have dark green skin, porcine features and brutish personalities. Wogg the Tusker differs from that image in at least three ways. For one thing, he has pinkish skin. For another, he is an introspective, pacifistic soul, one who respects all forms of life and wishes to see them live together in harmony. Finally, he is sensitive to that mysterious energy field known as the Force.



Wogg's Dwelling
This unusual Gamorrean lives in a crude mud hut. Inside it he has built a rough bed, a hearth and a desk at which to write about his musings. A stout post rises up through the center of it, a skin covers the doorway, and a hole in the roof provides ventilation. Around the outside of the hut he has built a fence for containing the watch-beasts that he raises—a male, three females and six young.


Wogg the Tusker (Rival)
Brawn 3 Cunning 2 Presence 2
Agility 2 Intellect 2 Willpower 3

Soak: 3
Wound Threshold: 15
Strain Threshold: 11
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 1, Discipline 2, Lore 3, Medicine 1, Melee 2, Negotiation 1, Perception 2, Resilience 2, Survival 3, Vigilance 1

Talents: Control Upgrade, Forager, Heightened Awareness, Natural Hunter, Quick Draw, Quick Strike, Rapid Recovery, Sense Basic Power, Uncanny Reactions, Uncanny Senses

Abilities: One free rank in Melee; Savage Warrior: When making a Brawl or Melee check, Gamorreans add the Vicious 1 quality to their weapon. If the weapon already has the Vicious quality, increase the listed value by 1.

Equipment: Padded armor, vibroknife, force pike

Wogg the Tusker has always been an anomaly. When other boars around him delighted in fighting each other, he preferred to contemplate the mysteries of the natural world. This led him to seek the solitude of the local forest, where he makes a living by raising watch-beasts for sale to his former fellows and offworlders. What few know is that Wogg was in love with Matron Orrza of the Moorb Clan, and that she loved him, too. Because he was not a suitable mate according to Gamorrean standards, however, she let him go into exile rather than appear to be weak.


Using Wogg the Tusker in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
This character can be incorporated into an Edge of the Empire campaign in many different ways; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
  • Wogg can act as a different kind of teacher for Force-sensitive characters, one who is unusual but effective. They could meet him during a fair at the Moorb clanhold, or perhaps while seeking him directly.
  • A Hutt crimelord could hire the PCs to pick up a load of watch-beasts for delivery to another world, making for an interesting flight.
  • When a rival boar learns of Wogg's love for his clan Matron, that Gamorrean warrior calls for an honor duel to the death. She, in turn, might recruit the PCs to help settle the matter in a way that prevents bloodshed.
  • If Imperial forces ever learned of Wogg's Force sensitivity, they might take steps to eliminate him.

Gamorrean Miscellany

This post presents some equipment peculiar to, or useful, Gamorreans, along with two new creatures.

-Nate


Creatures of Gamorr
The planet Gamorr is known for a number of distinctive creatures, some of which are presented below.

Watch-Beast (Rival)
Brawn 4 Cunning 3 Presence 2
Agility 2 Intellect 1 Willpower 3

Soak: 6
Wound Threshold: 16
Strain Threshold: 12
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 3, Brawl 3, Perception 2, Vigilance 2
Talents: None

Abilities: Silhouette 2; Adversary 1

Equipment: Bite (Brawl; Damage 6; Critical 3; Range [Engaged])

Watch-beasts are predators that have been domesticated by the Gamorreans for use in protecting their homes. They are large in stature—easily the size of a speeder—with four thick legs, stout horns and a mouth full of sharp teeth. They are keenly aware of their surroundings, and tend to attack any creature other than the Gamorreans to whom they're loyal unless ordered to do otherwise. Recently, agents of the Empire have begun acquiring these creatures for use as guard animals at Imperial facilities, such as at the training facility on Sirpar.


Quizzer (Rival)
Brawn 1 Cunning 3 Presence 2
Agility 4 Intellect 1 Willpower 1

Soak: 1
Wound Threshold: 5
Strain Threshold: 5
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 2, Perception 2, Skulduggery 2, Stealth 2, Survival 2

Talents: None

Abilities: Silhouette 0; Arboreal: gain a boost die to actions involving movement in the trees, but suffer a setback die to movement-related actions on the ground

Equipment: Claws (Brawl; Damage 3; Critical 5; Range [Engaged]); shiny objects pilfered from unsuspecting travelers

Quizzers are mischievous arboreal creatures native to the planet Gamorr. They are bipedal and roughly humanoid, with clawed feet, prehensile tails, opposable thumbs, and four bony plates that protrude from their backs. While most harmless, they do love shiny objects, and steal them when the opportunity arises. This has made them a hated enemy of the Gamorreans. For more information about them, check out the relevant article on Wookieepedia.

New Equipment
The Gamorreans possess a number of distinctive equipment items; these are detailed below.

M'ukh'gfa
This battle armor is assembled piecemeal from pieces of scrap collected on the battlefield, and connected by leather straps—at least in an ideal world. Nowadays, many Gamorreans just by the prefabricated version. More old-fashioned warriors consider it dishonorable for non-Gamorreans to wear the armor, and challenge those who do so to duels.

*The rarity listed is for purchasing these items on Gamorr; increase it by 2 when not on that planet.

Arg'garok
The Gamorrean axe is a heavy metal blade attached to a stout wooden handle. It is specifically designed to take advantage of Gamorrean's low center of gravity, meaning that characters who aren't built like them suffer a setback die to Melee checks when wielding arg'garoks.

Thogk
The Gamorrean club is made from a stout piece of wood, preferably gorgt wood, with a metal spike driven through it. Ideally, Gamorrean warriors drive that spike through the wood with their own fists.

Transliterator
More sophisticated than a vox-box, a transliterator is a device that translates phrases from one language (often a being's native tongue) into another (usually Basic). What is more, it is usually designed to “speak” in a voice based off of a known celbrity, such as pop holostar Javul Charn or former Imperial Senator Princess Leia of Alderaan.

Vox-Box
This small electronic device can store up to a dozen pre-recorded phrases, usually in Basic, with a button for each. Of course, the user can choose to record other phrases instead. Sometimes when that happens, shenanigans ensue.

Gamorreans

Building on yesterday's post, here are stats for some of the Gamorreans who inhabit the Moorb stronghold. Thanks go to the Gaming Security Agency for providing the base Gamorrean stats. For more information about Gamorreans, check out the relevant article(s) on Wookieepedia.

Inhabitants
Detailed here are some of the NPCs who can be found in the stronghold.

Clan Matron Orrza (Nemesis)
Brawn 3 Cunning 3 Presence 4
Agility 2 Intellect 2 Willpower 2

Soak: 3
Wound Threshold: 15
Strain Threshold: 12
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 1, Charm 3, Deception 2, Lore 2, Negotiation 4, Perception 3, Resilience 3, Survival 2, Vigilance 3

Talents: Dodge, Grit x2, Improved Inspiring Rhetoric, Inspiring Rhetoric, Kill With Kindness, Plausible Deniability, Scathing Tirade, Steely Nerves, Toughened

Abilities: One free rank in Melee; Savage Warrior: When making a Brawl or Melee check, Gamorreans add the Vicious 1 quality to their weapon. If the weapon already has the Vicious quality, increase the listed value by 1.

Equipment: None

Clan Matron Orrza is fiercely proud of the stronghold that she and her people have built, and the thus the comfortable lives that they live. She is also quite protective of it, reactive with great prejudice to anything she deems a threat to it. She is open to new opportunities, though, including working for the Hutts or devising other schemes with visiting offworlders if it means that she can gain an edge on rival clans.


Clan Warlord Orrik (Rival)
Brawn 4 Cunning 2 Presence 2
Agility 3 Intellect 1 Willpower 2

Soak: 5
Wound Threshold: 21
Strain Threshold: 10
M/R Defense: 1 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 4, Cool 2, Lore 2, Melee 4, Perception 2, Resilience 2, Survival 3, Vigilance 2

Talents: Defensive Stance, Enduring x2, Feral Strength x2, Frenzied Attack x2, Heroic Fortitude, Lethal Blows, Natural Brawler, Toughened x3

Abilities: One free rank in Melee; Savage Warrior: When making a Brawl or Melee check, Gamorreans add the Vicious 1 quality to their weapon. If the weapon already has the Vicious quality, increase the listed value by 1.

Equipment: Plate armor, war axe, war club, blaster pistol (as a trophy)

Warlord Orrik is, in his own eyes, the pride of the Moorb clan. He is old enough to remember serving in the Clone Wars, as a soldier-for-hire on the side of the Confederacy. Since then he has become the right hand of Matron Orrza and has sired many children by her. Although he acts the part of the proud, strutting warrior, he lives in fear that some younger boar will one day defeat him in battle and therefore supplant him.


Veteran Boar (Rival)
Brawn 4 Cunning 2 Presence 2
Agility 3 Intellect 1 Willpower 2

Soak: 5
Wound Threshold: 19
Strain Threshold: 10
M/R Defense: 1 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 3, Cool 1, Lore 1, Melee 3, Perception 1, Resilience 1, Survival 2, Vigilance 1

Talents: Enduring, Feral Strength, Frenzied Attack, Lethal Blows, Toughened x2

Abilities: One free rank in Melee; Savage Warrior: When making a Brawl or Melee check, Gamorreans add the Vicious 1 quality to their weapon. If the weapon already has the Vicious quality, increase the listed value by 1.

Equipment: Plate armor, war axe, war club

Having fought in many campaigns on behalf of their Warlord and their Clan Matron, these boars are now decorated veterans. While their current jobs are rather cushy, they should not be underestimated; after all, they are the first line of defense when it comes to protecting those who rule the clan.


Elder Sow (Rival)
Brawn 3 Cunning 3 Presence 3
Agility 2 Intellect 1 Willpower 2

Soak: 3
Wound Threshold: 15
Strain Threshold: 11
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 1, Charm 2, Deception 1, Lore 1, Negotiation 3, Perception 2, Resilience 2, Survival 1, Vigilance 2

Talents: Grit, Kill With Kindness, Toughened

Abilities: One free rank in Melee; Savage Warrior: When making a Brawl or Melee check, Gamorreans add the Vicious 1 quality to their weapon. If the weapon already has the Vicious quality, increase the listed value by 1.

Equipment: None

These sows have been around for many years. As a reward for their productive service, they now handle the cooking and other chores in the stronghold's main hall. Although that may seem like drudgery to offworlders, they are happy to do what they can for their Matron and the other members of the clan.


Tusker (Minion)
Brawn 3 Cunning 1 Presence 1
Agility 2 Intellect 1 Willpower 1

Soak: 4
Wound Threshold: 5 each
Strain Threshold: NA
M/R Defense: 1 / 0

Skills (Group only): Brawl, Melee

Talents: None

Abilities: None

Equipment: Partial plate armor, axes, clubs

These up-and-coming warriors relish in opportunities to impress females by demonstrating their prowess in battle. To that end, they are always on the lookout for trouble. Given their desire to find problems, they are not above picking a fight in order just so they have a chance to settle it. Even so, they obey their matron and warlord in all matters.


Typical Sow (Minion)
Brawn 3 Cunning 1 Presence 1
Agility 2 Intellect 1 Willpower 1

Soak: 3
Wound Threshold: 5 each
Strain Threshold: NA
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Brawl, Perception

Talents: None

Abilities: None

Equipment: None

The females of the clan may seem like little more than nursemaids, but visitors shouldn't be fooled by this appearance. When put to it, they can fight just as well as the males. What is more, they are always alert for problems, and are quick to report anything out of the ordinary lest it should prove to be troublesome.

Gamorrean Stronghold

Just beyond the boundary of Hutt Space is the planet Gamorr. It is a backwater world, one with little technology and even less refinement. Even so, the warriors who inhabit are known throughout the galaxy for their toughness. That is why they make popular mercenaries, especially for the criminal rulers of Nal Hutta.



The Stronghold
Refer to the appropriate map for the following area descriptions. The walls of the stronghold, it should be noted, rise ten meters in height. They are made from two layers of worked stone, filled with rocks and other debris between them. An elevated walkway runs along the top of the walls, one from which the Gamorreans can survey the surrounding terrain.

1. Entry
Admittance to the stronghold is provided through a huge pair of iron-banded wooden doors. They can be sealed from the inside with stout wooden beams, at which point nothing short of a formidable Brawn check can force them open.

2. Towers/Tuskers' Quarters
Spaced intermittently around the wall are these towers. Each has a spiral staircase running up its center, and is pierced by numerous narrow windows for protected visibility. The top of each tower is open to the sky above, providing a watchpoint. At the base of each tower is a small sleeping chamber for the tuskers who are stationed in it.

3. Storehouses
These low wooden buildings are used for storing the clan's food supplies, extra weapons, raw materials and other such things.

4. Cistern
In the middle of the stronghold's courtyard is this open structure. A spiral staircase leads down into a subterranean well, providing freshwater for the Gamorreans's needs. (Note that bathing is not one of those needs.)

5. Sow's Quarters
Each of these buildings provides living space for the clan's sows, along with their younglings. (Young males remain here until such time as they are ready to serve among the tuskers.) Each building has two levels.

6. Main Hall
This is where Clan Matron Orrza and Warlord Orrik host gatherings. It is an open chamber, two stories in height. Two rows of chairs sit facing each other, flanking larger thrones for the clan's leaders. Spiral staircases lead down to the building's lower level.

7. Kitchen
Always a center of activity, the kitchen broasts a broad hearth for cooking meat, stewing fungus and the like. It also keeps this building the most comfortable during Coldtime.

8. Elder Sows' Quarters
A trio of older females act as servants in the main hall. It is they who do the cooking, and generally boss around the veteran boars.

9. Veteran Boars' Quarters
These older males, also three in number, assist the clan warlord in whatever he needs.

10. Clan Matron's Quarters
Clan Matron Orrza has her private chamber here. Although it is roomier than the quarters provide for all but her husband, it is still relatively spartan. The exception is a steel-banded chest that contains her valuables, including jewelry, trophies and other such items.

11. Clan Warlord's Quarters
Although Warlord Orrik spends much of his time visiting his wife, he does have his own quarters here.


Using the Gamorrean Stronghold in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
This location can be incorporated into an Edge of the Empire campaign in many different ways; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
  • Many Hutts negotiate with Gamorrean Clan Matrons to acquire their services. PCs who are working for the Hutts might be required to participate in such negotiations, to deliver a difficult cargo as a form of payment, or to transport warriors from their homeworld back to Nal Hutta.
  • A PC who excels in hand-to-hand combat could be called upon to act as champion for a Hutt crime boss; that character must defeat the clan's champion in order to secure a contract for mercenary service.
  • During a visit to the stronghold, the PCs could become embroiled in intrigues regarding two boars who are competing for the same sow.
  • The Gamorreans' infamous hatred of droids could lead to shenanigans if the PCs happen to bring one of their own—and especially if a PC is a droid.
  • When the Gamorreans are faced by a danger that they don't fully comprehend, they might call upon the PCs to help investigate.

More Opponents

Detailed below are more opponents to use in arena combat, or in other situations. GM may also refer to a previous article on this blog to find stats for additional combatants.

The Opposition

-Nate


More Opponents
The NPCs presented below could serve as opponents in this or any other fighting pit.


Tenrep “Little Dianoga” Cray II, Aqualish Soldier (Rival)
Brawn 4 Cunning 2 Presence 2
Agility 2 Intellect 1 Willpower 2

Soak: 6
Wound Threshold: 15
Strain Threshold: 9
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 2, Coercion 1, Melee 1, Ranged—Light 1, Resilience 2, Vigilance 1

Talents: Defensive Stance, Durable, Intimidating, Stunning Blow, Toughened

Abilities: Free rank in Brawl and Resilience; can breathe underwater

Equipment: Padded armor, blaster pistol, truncheon

Known as the “Little Dianoga” because he is his father's son, the younger Tenrep tries very hard to fill the shoes of his elder. While he possesses a great deal of natural aptitude, and has been honing his skill in combat, Tenrep lacks some of his father's subtlety and imagination. To that end, smart opponents—that is, those who choose not to meet him in a test of power—can work around his strength.


Barada, Klatooinian Heavy (Rival)
Brawn 3 Cunning 2 Presence 2
Agility 3 Intellect 2 Willpower 1

Soak: 5
Wound Threshold: 15
Strain Threshold: 12
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 2, Cool 1, Melee 2, Perception 1, Ranged—Heavy 1, Ranged—Light 1, Resilience 1, Vigilance 1

Talents: Durable, Grit, Heroic Fortitude, Toughened x2

Abilities: Free ranks in Brawl, Ranged—Heavy or Ranged—Light and one non-career skill

Equipment: Padded armor, combat knife, brass knuckles

Barada is tough and quick. She is a capable combatant, and at first glance seems to relish in fighting to entertain the Hutts and their minions. Deep down she resents the oppression of her people, the Klatooinians, by the Hutts. To that end she longs to win enough prize money so that she can leave this life behind her and find a higher purpose for which to live. What that purpose might be, however, she doesn't yet know.


Jeluma, Toydarian Archaeologist (Rival)
Brawn 1 Cunning 2 Presence 3
Agility 1 Intellect 2 Willpower 3

Soak: 1
Wound Threshold: 12
Strain Threshold: 16
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Athletics 1, Brawl 2, Education 1, Lore 2, Melee 2, Outer Rim 1, Perception 1, Xenology 1

Talents: Durable, Enduring, Grit, Hard Headed, Resolve, Stunning Blow, Toughened, Well Rounded

Abilities: Silhouette 0; Hoverer

Equipment: Heavy clothing, force pike, datapad, comlink

Jeluma fancies himself to be a respectable academic, indeed an archaeologist. In truth he is a thrill seeker, pure and simple. To that end, he does archaeological work from time to time, performing services for the Museum of Intergalactic Cultures. More often, however, he can be found at the arena, participating in the fights. Jeluma prefers to stay away from his foes, always striking with his force pike and then moving. Should he ever tire of the bouts, and be impressed by some of his opponents, he might try to recruit them for an expedition.


Kel Wuso, Human Scoundrel (Rival)
Brawn 3 Cunning 2 Presence 2
Agility 2 Intellect 2 Willpower 2

Soak: 4
Wound Threshold: 13
Strain Threshold: 12
M/R Defense: 0 / 0

Skills: Brawl 2, Cool 2, Deception 1, Melee 2, Perception 1, Ranged—Light 1, Skulduggery 1, Stealth 1, Streetwise 1, Vigilance 2

Talents: Quick Strike, Rapid Reaction, Side Step

Abilities: Free rank in each of two non-career skills

Equipment: Heavy clothing, blaster pistol, truncheon




Kel Wuso is a street thief with dreams of being a criminal kingpin. He is not terribly imaginative in his tactics, however, and tends to be more successful at fighting than at avoiding confrontation. He prefers to strike quickly and end battles as soon as possible. Kel also considers himself to be irresistible to females, a notion that's probably been reinforced to throw around credits when he has them.
