Charismatic in politics as well as leadership, but distant in almost all else, it is difficult to speak with this man when one meets him. War has left him unlike his former self, and his passions have turned him to a whole new path, which is rarely spoken about, if one can even manage to make him talk on it. Those that used to know him can notice the change which has transpired, it has made him into a man that is no longer who he once was, save for what little past he holds to his memories.

The knowledge of this man is one that is surrounded in mystery. Once a respected noble of Coruscant who was engaged to his fiance' Luna Knight, he became a skilled soldier in the Clone Wars, even managing to earn his own command. However, once the war was finished, not much was heard from him. Then he arose once more as a Commander in the Outer Rim Republic when it formed. After engaging in many conflicts that were met with success, few with failure, he became the Senator of Spreon V where he pushed Imperial legislation. It was then that a mysterious rumor arose that became known as truth. His fiance' was resurrected, but he was said to be in service to a Force entity. A thrall. Eventually, his fiance' passed again, and it is said he gave up his positions so that he could pursue a career as a Republic Knight and also adopt a daughter named Lana Black. It is know he's been chased out of the Republic and is wanted for crimes. He currently still works as a bounty hunter and also mercenary.
He has a reputation in the Republic as a former Commander, Senator, and Knight of skill. He once was quite important in the securing of Sullust from the Taung Forces. Though due to situations that are not known to the public, many currently view him to be a criminal and Imperial sympathizer, however due to his nature, there are still a fair few who would speak well of him, most especially those that he has funded to keep the economy up.
He is known to the Imperials as the Count of House Black, and a possible contender to take House Knight for a merge due to what was supposed to be both a political and romantic marriage to his fiance' Luna Knight. Public opinion varies, as he was an Imperial voice in the Republic Senate. Besides his title which is esteemed upon both Coruscant and Alderaan, there is little reputation to speak of besides those related to the Republic.
He is well known as a Senior Hunter in the Guild. Before his License was given he had assisted another bounty hunter, and was then sponsored in when he sought to become one for himself. The hunts that he takes on are usually the kind which involve priority targets with an excessive bounty. There are rumors that he also seeks to join the Mantis within the Guild. It is also said he has a few relationships with the Guild which have become difficult to keep due to a bounty on him from Republic space.
He is known on the DarkNet as 'Blaze', but there is little to link the man with the alias which he uses. He is rumored to be a skilled hacker and elite in the acquisition of knowledge through both the HoloNet and DarkNet. He is said to take orders for equipment if people are able to put the credits forth for it. Usually, this is handled with proxies though.
He is known as a Republic war criminal with a bounty on him for 40,000 credits, however few approach him about this within the criminal scene due to his strength and connection with the Hunter's Guild. Criminal circles seem to notice that he has recently been acquiring members to form a new gang.
