Personal History:

Employment History: (according to her age)

from 15 to 17 worked in parent’s med clinic in the city of Stenna on Achani, from 17 to 24 worked as flight crew for Rebel Alliance Fleet (-3 ANH to ESB), from 24 to 30 worked as independent Free Trader, running the Wookie’s Uncle on an eight-point trade route, from 30 to 32 worked as a contractor for Imperial Fleet through Captain Metiéh, from 32 to present worked as bodyguard to Princess Anelis Palpatine

Daravik was orphaned so you that she can’t remember her parents, even though she has some memory fragments. She survived by begging, stealing, and sneaking into the stables during the cold winter nights, and by learning to fight like a demon.

P>Her homeworld, Achani, is a sparsely settled, low-tech colony world, agrarian and generally cold, and when she was about ten or so, Kighe and Merulan Kotewa arrived on-world and set up their medical clinic. They caught Dara sneaking in one night, and convinced her first that they would not hurt her, and then that they wanted her to stay. They adopted her legally, and "civilized" her. She became best friends with Tasan Li and Jijenna Bromin. The three of them became inseprable, the neighborhood children shunnig Jenna and Tass for their friendship with Dara, who never forgot and paid back the little brats for their snobbery.

Kighe Kotewa taught Dara and her friends first aid and paramedic skills so that they could help in the clinic, and Merulan Kotewa taught her and Tass basic electronics, and computer skills so that they could help repair the equipment. The three grew up, Jenna got married, and life became very boring for her and Tass, since Achani did not support the level of technology they were really interested in.

At 17, she and Tass took passage on a Corellian freighter and hooked up with the Rebel Alliance; not for any sense of loyalty, but because the Rebels took them immediately. Dara rose in rank quickly, and soon was head of an X-wing flight crew on the secret rebel base on Yavin’s moon. Her immediate supervisor, Sgt. Grinnell, disliked her because she was very young to be so good at her work, and because she was in a position to discover the various scams he was running.

Six years later, her parents were killed by an Alliance underground bombing when a ranking Imperial officer ended up at the Kotewa’s clinic for treatment. The news reached Dara just before the battle & evacuation of Hoth. (ESB) Tass got her royally drunk, and when the Empire invaded, she still hadn’t sobered up. The resulting confrontation with Grinnell got her (and Tass) thrown into the brig, and they were left until the very last transport out. Once the Rebels were safe, they were dishonorably discharged and left on Tatooine without transport. They worked their way back to Achani, and Dara used her inheritence to buy a modified, high-speed light freighter, which she calls the Wookiee’s Uncle. Tass and her husband, Rall Timerian, were her partners in the trade run. They ran for nearly 17 years without too much trouble, staying clear of smuggling contracts and the PTA enforcers. Then, as the organized crime syndicate starts to become a pervasive threat to free traders, Dara and Tass get into a fight with some PTA stooges at Port Lansing. Tass is seriously injured and hospitalized, and Rall attends her. Dara is less seriously injured and looks for work. She is hired by Captain Metieh, and the rest is history:
