There's something of a fellowship among hotshot smugglers and other beings who fly for hire. After all, these characters recognize that they experience similar dangers working for the same types of employers. Even so, there's also a sense of competition among them, always trying to outdo one another when it comes to demonstrating their skills and showing off their ships. Take, for example, the record for the Kessel run set by Han Solo and Chewbacca, broken by BoShek, and then later reclaimed by the Human and Wookiee partners.

Togala is a brash, boastful pilot; the only thing he enjoys more than piloting his ship in dangerous situations is telling others about it later. Even so, he is friendly with other pilots and loyal to those who earn his respect. He has no love for beings who lie or cheat others (but taking a little license in storytelling is another matter entirely).
Togala flies an R-41 Starchaser starfighter, the Pursuit, for special “small package trade” delivery assignments.
Using Togala in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
This Xexto hotshot can be incorporated into an Edge of the Empire campaign in many different ways; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
- Most notably, Togala can compete with the PCs for jobs and glory.
- A Hutt or other employer could send him to help the PCs if a job goes wrong—and he won't let them hear the end of it, of course.
- Alternately, the PCs could be sent to retrieve him from a sticky situation.
- The Xexto could eventually betray the PCs if someone makes him an offer he can't refuse.
