  • 2 Lightsabers (5d damage)
  • Robes + 1 change of clothes.
  • Commlink
  • DataPADD (Pocket secretary)
  • 2 heavy blasters (5d damage), 1 with a scope; but one of the two (GM’s choice per adventure) is generally left at the Jedi Temple. On both, they’ve been set to STUN and then the switch has been disconnected.
  • Rebreather with small oxygen cannister and oxy extraction system
  • 1 can NuSkin (spray-on skin)
  • Medkit, disassembled and contents shoved into various belt pouches
  • night-vision lenses
  • repair/maintenance tools for lightsabers and blaster

Generally left behind at home:

  • whichever one of the two heavy blasters has been left in the gunsafe instead of stuck into holster when she walked out of her room, last time she slept at the Temple. The heavy blaster WITH the scope was a present from Obi-Wan Kenobi; the other one is older, and has taken quite the beating over the past couple of decades
  • Minbari pike, one end painted black with gold, silver, and gemlike “stars”; also has a harpoon attachment for the pike
  • Used to have a medglove. Somebody in the party took off with it a couple of years ago. Haven’t bothered to replace it, but I still have the recharging connector.
  • also in my closet is a bunch of Leia’s clothing. Apparently this is stuff that’s not needed frequently but will someday be required again. None of it fits me even remotely. I can’t remember why I agreed to let her use my storage space, something about how I wasn’t doing anything with it anyway, and I suspect I may’ve been Jedi Beer Tricked.

From Ysadora’s own notes, accessible via intrusion into her DataPADD:

Around thirty to thirty-five standard years old, brown eyes, brown hair worn long and usually loose, approximately 5’6" and 150 lbs.

Born at Mirrul Hospital, Skirzden, Esseles, Essessia System, Darpa sector; raised by standard contract at Skirzden Star Creche, Esseles, Darpa sector; graduated Calamar Technical University with certification in database administration; left Esseles without filing travel plan. Job history: various.

Licensed four years later by Imperial Review Board as a private investigator.

Operated an office on Siskel Station.

Student of Jedi Master Skywalker until the Nostromo incident, after which time she was seen travelling with Jedi Master Kenobi. Good at finding Storm Troopers. Graduated to Jedi Knight after the second death of Palpatine, at the end of the Shadows of an Empire adventure.

A former private detective, frequently seeming to be at odds with the sometimes not-so-practical Jedi Masters, Vanya quickly gained a reputation as one of the more inquisitive Jedi padawans currently being trained. Her original master was Anakin Skywalker, who at a certain point in her training passed her over to Master Obi-wan Kenobi, the one who trained Anakin Skywalker. Masters Kenobi, Skywalker, Yoda, and Hinalli once swore up and down to have seen visions of Vanya through the Force, showing that she could become a great something-something-something if she would just QUIT ARGUING FOR FIVE MINUTES and listen more closely to the lecture in progress. That conversation went VERY well, Vanya thought, even while on k.p.

Editor’s note: Don’t call me “dame” unless you can do it like Bogey, shweethaht. And “Vanya”? NOT my legal name. It’s a nickname. Check my PI license if you don’t believe me. So you’ve not got a “respecting tradition” leg to stand on there.

Some of the above may be carefully presented to create a certain effect in an unauthorized reader.

Vanya has registered a legal abdication of claim, for herself in perpetuity, to any familial rights in connection with the Vorharkonnen noble family.

Vanya and Davish are running a cross between a clergy consultation office and a private investigator office in the Tavya System, which is part of the Freeworlds Territory. It’s only a couple hops down from Allandor and the Jedi Temple. It is on the Procopian Shipping Lane, so plenty of traffic passes through. Vanya has been joking around with the phrase “Go to Tavya Nine, ask for Ysadora, she will help you” but does not really expect that to catch on. For one thing, it has no rhythm to it.
