Gann Oron *Clan Leader*.
Early years (14-27 ABY)
Gann Oron was born(14 ABY) into Clan Oron, and raised in the remote town of Enceri on Mandalore until the age of six. Several Mando'ade, including a handful of Aliit Oron, were hired(20 ABY) by a man named Valon Dursk, and settled into a small, self-forged community near the Dha Lu'paai Forest[(Dah loo-PIE) = Dark Wolf] on the uncharted planet of Navaraa.
Gann would train with anyone that had the time because he always wanted to prove himself. He was often found studying fighters in the honor circle, between his training and chores. He would also spend long days training to track and trap with Jaryte Oron, the Vheh Cabur(Earth Guardian), in the Dark Wolf Forest, a place named for it's dark furred Lupine inhabitants. At the age of thirteen(27 ABY) Gann would leave Navaraa to join his mandalorian bretheren, under the Contract of Dursk, in the fight against the Yuuzhan Vong.
Under Contract (27-36 ABY)
While in the service of Dursk, Gann fought alongside a throng of other long forgotten warriors, in decisive strategic attacks, against the Vong. At the age of eighteen, Kelvine Oron died(32 ABY) at the "Third Battle of Dxun." It was with his dying breath that he named Gann, the only member of Aliit Oron present that remained standing, his successor as Clan Leader. Gann would then lead Aliit Oron for another four years under the Contract of Dursk. It was when the contract had been fulfilled(36 ABY)that Gann withdrew Clan Oron from Dursk's services on good terms.
Hunter/Leader (36-40 ABY)
Gann Oron became a bounty hunter by trade, but still held the title of Clan Leader. Seeing as most of the clan worked as mercenaries, he decided that each member should walk their own path. However, all were required to appear at an annual celebration of Aliit Oron to catch up, share laughs, and just have a good time. It was also understood that they were to help out any other member of Aliit Oron when needed and/or possible. In between bounties Gann would look into Sith activity as a sort of personal hobby and as a favor to Valon Dursk. During these four years several new members were adopted into Clan Oron. Aliit Oron was gathered for their annual celebration when Gann received the call of Mand’alor Boba Fett (40 ABY) and led them all to Manda'yaim, the planet Mandalore.
Physical appearance and personality traits
6'2, 175, dark brown hair, dark brown peppered with gold mustache/goatee combo, hazel eyes, and an evenly proportioned build.
Gann prefers to work on a project, or sit back and have a good laugh with his vode. However, he will become quite serious and focused, almost to a fault, when he is needed or his family and friends are threatened.
Equipment and weapons
At the base of it all Gann Oron wears an old, black, TIE pilot flight suit, an old pair of black and tan work/flight gloves, and a pair of black tactical boots of the same make that the Galactic Alliance Guard wear. Like ARC Troopers and Mando'ade before them, he wears a black Kama and a black shoulder pauldron with some unknown beasts hide adhered to the rank plate. Hanging from the shoulder pauldron is an old, tattered Aliit Oron standard that was handed to him when he was handed leadership of the clan. Gann wears chest and shoulder plates similar in style to that of Boba Fett, as well as a set of custom knee, shin, and foot plates that were handed down through Clan Oron. He also bears a pair of tan, studded-leather bracers and a tan, studded leather stomach guard. He is covered in assorted straps and pouches. To top it all off is a customized and personalized helmet that is adorned on both sides by curved horns. His helmet and armor plates are decorated in tan and maroon with gold markings.
Gann has several weapons at his disposal, most of which he keeps in hidden caches around the galaxy, but there are a few that he is seen using often and a few that are very unique. He has one pair of small blades that he hangs from his belt, the handles bear his colors, and they were a gift from his older sister. He also carries an alchemically treated Sith short sword that can deflect Lightsaber blades, and is kept over his shoulder or on his hip. He has been seen carrying a highly modified version of the Tenandro Arms PM-20 blaster pistol. He also carries a small belt of EMP grenades, but all in all he still prefers a good hand-to-hand match.
Gann Oron owns and flies "The Iron Krayt", a modified Corellian YV-929 Armed Freighter. The Iron Krayt boasts a fair amount of stasis-field generating holding cells, as well as a sophisticated internal defense grid. The following is a conversation about the Iron Krayt's outer defenses Gann had with a fellow Mando'ade:
"This is my personal flying fortress." -Gann Oron-
"Isn't it a little small for a Fortress?" -Akalla Thrain-
"Ret, al ukor b'ukor bic liser pirunir sur'haaise." -Gann Oron-
Translation: "Maybe, but when push comes to shove it can make their eyes water."
Gann Oron bought the Krayt(34 ABY) from one of Dursk's personnel ship lots. The YV-929 had come to be in the Dursk's possession when he confiscated it from a small band of pirates that tried to raid one of his transports. After Gann had purchased and named the vessel he worked with Kettsa, Dursk's top tech chief, to personalize it. This ship has been a great asset to his bounty hunting career.
Behind the scenes
I created Gann Oron for use in costuming events, conventions, Fan-Fiction, and Pen & Paper RPGs. I intend to run a clan out of Northwest Arkansas. I have a basic suit of light armor, but I am still working on a very unique and personalized costume. Visit [Gann Oron's Myspace] to learn more about him, and view updated pics of my costume.

Looking forward to helping out.
Please do not use any of my original concepts(I.E. Characters, Equipment, places, etc...) in your character profile without first getting my approval. Please understand that I am not being stingy. I am just concerned about timeline and/or background continuity. Thank you.
