The Defiant Star

The Defiant Star.jpgThis heavily modified light freighter bears a quad-laser turret and a pair of ion canons, and descent shields. It was customized with more spacious lodging accommodations, but can comfortably holds less passengers than the stock model. Its hull carries the signs of more than a decade of abuses, but the vessel was nonetheless well maintained by its previous owner.

Jedi Master Kieran Tasiri acquired this vessel at a bargain, shortly after the Baltizaar debacle. In the following decade, the Prodigal Jedi had ample opportunity to customize the small space transport to his specific needs. Among the first accessories installed were top of the line slave circuits and recall circuits systems, in order to be able to fly his ship solo. Before the Clone Wars, he used to travel with a modified 4th-degree combat droid to act as gunner on his more dangerous runs. The droid was however destroyed when he confonted his renegade apprentice, the Black Dove Vora Synn.


Leran Zarin, Governor of Aeten II offered Vora Synn her former Master’s starship, after convincing her that Vasha Stormtamer was ultimately responsible for Kieran Tasiri’s demise.
