The Right Hand Of Darkness
You REALLY don't want to see what's under the robes...
Xa’Thras is a Krevaaki merchant-man and collector of antiquities. He travels throughout the unknown regions searching for artifacts and technology from the earlier civilizations of the Rakata, the Gree, and maybe even a few items of Celestial origin. All of these are crammed into whatever space is available on his ship by his crew of Verpine mechanics. They keep things running and somewhat organized in exchange for access and research rights to these unique technologies. The deal benefits both parties as Xa’Thras is more interested in having these items than in keeping them in good working order. The Verpine do their best to put things back the way they were originally assembled and keep everything scanned and documented in Xa’Thras’ databanks.
