|Darkstryder (Kathol Outback) Adventure: "Plant Food"
Raised on a small planet in the Galactic Core, Varel DeVay led a pampered life and attended some of the galaxy's finese universities. Although her scholastic aptitude was high enough to permit her to choose any profession, she was highly intrigued with alien species and creatures and chose to be a xenobiologist.
DeVay never stayed with any particular corporation for a long period of time, mainly due to her desire to climb the corporate ladder to achieve financial security. She had worked for four different research firms within her first five years after graduation.
Her last opportunity, an offer to double her salary from a small company based on Kal'Shebbol, seemed too good to be true. But, she took the job and reported for work one month later. By then, it was too late for her to turn back, when she discovered that it was merely a ploy created by Moff Sarne to lure top-notch scientists to the Kathol sector. Forced to work for the Empire to research biological weapons, DeVay lost touch with her family and friends and was alone in the Outer Rim.
DeVay was finally set free after the New Republic's liberation of the capital planet. Despite her father's wishes for her to return home, her pride pushed her to sign on with the Farstar.
As the resident xenobiologist aboard the Farstar, most of DeVay's time is spent overseeing the droid workers in the hydroponics labs. She is easily irritated by machines and constantly double-checks the droids' work to make sure their work meets her high standards. Even though she has complained and requested more non-droids for assistance, she has been paid little mind.
DeVay stands about 1.8 meters in height and is usually found wearing neutral-colored formfitting jumpsuits. She has large brown eyes and thick brown hair that falls halfway down her back.
