Go Baby Go!

Hey all, time for my post. This is actually something that I came up with for a game I'm currently running. The game is based on The Fast And The Furious, and also Gone in 60 Seconds. Hope you like it. BTW, I creted this guy to be an NPC Villian, just to let everyone know.

Nial Crescent liked things fast. He liked to say he lived life "a quarter kilometer at a time". When he was a kid on Correllia, he watched his three brothers with awe as they worked on the swoops coming in to their father's swoop garage. Installing bigger, badder sounder engines, chroming everything, Nial loved it. When he was alone in the garage, he would jump up on an unfinished swoop and pretend to race to victory. His father noticed this, and he and the other brothers began saving. Eventually, when Nial was 15, they had enough money to purchase an old, beat down, swoop. It was a Mobquet Flare-S, but no one would know that unless they were a very well-trained mechanic. It didn't matter to Nial though. The night he got it, he started scrounging in his father's shop for unused parts to help trick-out his ride.

He thought long and hard, and decided that he would rather have an engine that was custom-built from many types of good engines, rather than a cheap ratty engine that would need lots of maintenance. So his work began. He started with an old Correllia Mk. III engine, and combined it with a Nubrikkian Mk. IV.5, and then modded the two, taking the best pieces from each. He came out with one of the most efficient engines ever. He then set out working on the air intake and exhaust. He knew that one major problem with swoops was that they didn't get enough air into the engine. He fixed that by installing wider front vanes and placing a large air intake between them. He then added some chrome exhaust, and ended with some exhaust pipes shooting up the side of the swoop, right next to the seat. Whoever sat in that seat would have to wear some earplugs. All of this took him four years. By that time, he felt he was ready to compete.

While on Correllia, he swept the local swoop tracks, rocketing him to stardom. He eventually went on to sweep the World Championships, beating jockeys ten years older than him. With his newfound stardom, he moved offworld, and while en route to finding a new place to race, he met a few friends. His friends were actually members of the Black Sun, and they said they could hook Nial up with some fast cash if he went with them. He followed them to Nar Shaddaa, where he wowed the local Vigos into letting him race for them. He has since climbed the ranks of the Black Sun, and has become a major power on Nar Shaddaa. He is the one to go to if you need racing set up, and still races himself, although a little less now because of his other "duties".

Roleplaying Tips:

Racing is your first love, controlling things is your second. When you race, you win, no matter what. You live for the thrill of the race, but you also race for the credits, All that matters is winning, because if you win, you are in control.
