The Debutante

After resolving some long-lasting computer issues, my technology is back in order. As such, here's the first blog update in too long.


The Debutante
Once they reach a certain age, many Falleen leave their homeworld in order to see the rest of the galaxy; it's an important step in their education before they settle into a career or other life path. Such is the case with this individual, Dauna Zhirtell. She is a carefree young being with credits to spend, just looking to experience life on other worlds and amidst other beings.

Dauna is a beautiful young Falleen. She has the green skin and black hair common to her species—along with the ability to change skin color and emit pheromones that cloud the minds of other beings. She is a very curious individual, and one who is still fairly naive about the ways of the galaxy. Even so, she is a game young woman, ready to try anything that sounds like an adventure.
What Dauna is not quick to mention is that her father is Keram Zhirtell, owner of Zhirtell Import and Export—and a front company for Black Sun. This gives her a strong connection to that organization, even if she doesn't know yet whether or not she wants to go into the family business.

The Transient
Dauna travels the galaxy in a GX1 Short Hauler, the Transient. This ship is a standard model, reflecting the line's originally intended purpose as a luxurious pleasure craft. Refer to page 56 of Fly Casual to find stats for this vessel; deck plans can be found on Wookieepedia at the following link.

Using the Debutante in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
There are many ways in which this character can become involved in the PCs' adventures; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
  • Dauna Zhirtell works well as a wild card during other adventures, a character who shows up on the scene and adds another dimension to existing business.
  • Considering her charms, it's always possible that she becomes a romantic interest for one or more of the PCs. Should that not turn out well, however, the paramour in question might find thugs working for Keram Zhirtell knocking on the door.
  • Given the growing animosity between the Falleen and the Empire, she could become an ally for characters who are sympathetic to the Rebellion. Given her shipping connections, she could provide considerable logistical support to the Alliance.
  • Agents of the Hutts might see her as a threat of Black Sun incursion into their territory, and therefore try to arrange an “accident” in order to eliminate her.
