Derek is a kind man, who often wishes to assist those he comes across. Though when he is upholding his oath, he knows little restraint, though it is also tempered with the knowledge of what is right. He is social and often likes to discuss all manners of knowledge. He is a bit secretive when it comes to what he is though, unless he has a trust with the people he speaks with.


Gather Info: 15 or IC Knowledge.

Not much is known about Derek Banks, however it is known to most people that he is a knowledgable man that seeks to learn what he can. He is known to take on work, and can often be found where either credits, or information is at. He has been known to travel in the Outer Rim Republic recently, and often visits the locales that are available. He holds little care for the Taung, it should be noted.

Renown: 5/100

He is known as Derek Banks (publicly), and has been seen with two devices whose make look ancient compared to modern tech, which he uses for battle. He frequents businesses as well as bars, and can often be seen buying drinks for others, or having a friendly chat, that is when he is actually feeling talkative. Unverified rumors have surfaced that he is a Force Sensitive. He has recently joined up with the Republic Navy as an R&D specialist, and performed in military missions, as well as having assisted before joining. It has been said he is touching in politics a bit, but for what reason, it is a bit difficult to discern. He has been known to work as an independent contractor as well. Besides all that, he does not have a reputation that seems to place him above being known as a Republic Navy member.

  • He has been around for a while in the galaxy, traveling, however he has an obvious curiosity for things that he doesn't know about. He is easy to impress, although he is often as impressive with his own knowledge that he has picked up from travels.
  • He has a tendency to seek out peace in almost all matters. A Consular once taught him that negotiations are the most important first step in battle. If one doesn't seek it first without good reason such as war, then it isn't a well honored action.
  • He is a bit of a romantic when it comes to the galaxy. Stories of heroes seem to attract him, and he often likes to listen to music and read poetry when he has the time to. He also seems to be a fan of a few holoshows as well.
  • He can often be found in coffee shoppes, or a cantina. He finds this the best way to meet people, and it is often where many stories start. He also tends to buy for his drinking companions, so it is an easy way for anyone to meet him, if they like.
  • He is with the Republic Navy, and can often be found on Sullust when he is not at work. He works with the Research Center on assignment as R&D, which means he can often be found looking for tech and knowledge.
