Laydhon, the Butcher’s Bane

Class: Smuggler, Scoundrel (Ruffian)

Race: Human

Love Interest: Lana Beniko


There’s a saying in the Underworld that if you follow a trail of blaster holes and broken hearts you will find the infamous Captain Laydhon at its end.

Often viewed as selfish and ruthless, few people actually know that beneath the boasting and flirting is a wound that runs deep.

The events that led to his confrontation with the Voidwolf were only the next in the long serie of betrayals that has been his life.

As a young child, Laydhon helplessly witnessed the brutal murder of his mother by brutes sent by the local Exchange boss in retaliation for the theft of a cargo of spice by a father who had been quick to abandon his family.

Laydhon spent the following years drifting from planets to planets, often as a stow away, taking jobs from whoever would give him one and stealing from those who wouldn’t.

He eventually joined the crew of a smuggler who taught him how to fly a ship, make quick money with minimum risks and helped him find and get revenge on his father. Laydhon’s beloved XS Freighter was the last gift of his dying mentor after a deal in Imperial space that took a turn for the worst.

There’s nothing the Captain loves more than making good money while looking like a hero and getting the girl at the end but it doesn’t mean he is without principles. He has no tolerance for betrayal, spice trafficking or slavery and has a strict no sleeping with crew members policy he follows to the letter.

His love for women and danger has recently led him into starting an unlikely relationship with Sith Lord Lana Beniko, a relationship that to his greatest surprise, he finds himself willing to work for.
