Clairpol Mor’rine
Clairpol Mor’rine was a sports fanatic on Coruscant, where he was born. He followed all sorts of professional sports teams, but his favorite sport event was the Galactic Cup. The Galactic Cup is the biggest competition in bolo-ball and is held every five years. Teams from nearly every planet compete. The Galactic Cup was also one of the biggest gambling events in the galaxy. Clairpol Mor’rine is a huge fan of the Coruscant team and that his how he lost every decicred he ever earned. Five years ago he bet everything he had on Coruscant during the opening round, and they lost horribly. This year, he is trying to make the money back and pay off his debts. He is paying of some players to blow the game. He bets huge amounts of money, and then promises half of it to various players.

Clairpol is dark-purple skinned and has white long white hair. He wears a respectable looking outfit and always carries a blaster pistol. That blaster pistol has helped Clairpol get out of situations with debt collectors before, and he trusts it will again.

Clairpol is out to make as much money as he possibly can on this Galactic Cup. He does gamble in other areas such as Sabbacc and other games, but the Galactic Cup has the attention of everyone and he wants to capitalize on it.

Clairpol avoids fighting at all costs. If he is shot at he will shoot back, but if he feels a threatening situation coming, he does his best to avoid it all together.

Roleplaying Tips
Make many bets with many people for more money than you have; it will pay out in the end because you have guaranteed the outcome. Greet people by talking about the Galactic Cup, get them interested and bet a small amount. Once they lose, they’ll try to win it back. Make the second bet count.

Era Notes
Clairpol can be found on any planet that has a place to make wagers. He will likely be in an established casino on a heavily populated world, but he can travel to other worlds.
