The Fugitive Mechanic

Slith Skael was born upon a Executor-class Star Dreadnought dubbed “The Iron Fist”. The Iron Fist was captained by the Grand Moff Zsinj. A merciless warlord of the Empire who will stop at nothing to get what he wants – power.
When Slith was just a little snake, his mother was the only one to take care of him on the ship since his father was sent away to do mechanical work for the Imperial Navy. He grew up tinkering with droids during what the Imperial officers called"class time", and quickly he became adept at fixing almost anything. It wasn’t until his teens when he was dubbed adequate enough to be sent to work for the Empire himself.
He moved from ship to ship until the age of 20 when he was considered one of the best young mechanics of his people since the great Alessi Quon who was a male engineer for the Experi-Tech department of Imperial Intelligence. He became the personal mechanic for Mir Rothe, an up and coming Moff under the tutelage of Grand Moff Zsinj.
On one particular day, Slith was aboard a 350-X Shuttle, a Lambda-class T-4a Imperial Shuttle, doing his duties. Rothe docked the vessel at The Wheel to do his normal rounds of recruiting. Slith noticed that only 20 minutes of being docked, the ship started moving again. He slithered up to the cockpit and saw Kevin Harte piloting the ship. He thought this his best chance to break free of his slave duties and finally be his own man. So he helped Kevin escape from the Imperials crashing the ship on the surface of Tatooine.
Slith and Kevin have been good friends ever since that fateful day. It seemed like the Empire forgot about them until just recently…
