Physical Description

Build/Main Features

Zxyl Venzos is the half-breed product of a Zabrak female and Mandalorian Human male, standing just over six feet tall. He has a smooth complexion befitting someone in their twenties, with no wrinkles and a pale-grey skin tone. Venzos' frame is well proportioned. His body is in fit physical shape with a medium build and slightly larger chest, with averaged sized hands and feet. Atop Zxyl's head are several small dark evenly spaced horns that protrude slightly from his skull, unconcealed by any hair. His nose is somewhat pointed, but well shaped. This downright scoundrel of a Weapons Specialist has no eyebrows, but framing the bottom of his face is a mouth full of sharp teeth and angular jaw covered in a beard.


Zxyl has a set of unique heterochromatic colored irises with an intense color combination and composition. On the left from his father's side are strands of mint and pale grey, while his Zabrak mother's side provided him with portions of deep royal-purple and sapphire-blue in his right eye. Both sclera are a dull-grey in color.

The Beard

Zxyl's beard is immaculate, covering the entire bottom half of his face save for his lips - hiding any sign of what lies beneath. This Mandalorian's beard runs in an angular fashion from his ears, down across his cheeks to his lips. The entire beard is well kept to ensure uniformity and structure on an almost obsessive level.

Venzos' beard is evenly trimmed, with the underside trimmed in an angular fashion. It is dark grey in color, standing out against his skin. The beard falls long enough from the face that it can be braided tightly and secured to ensure a more comfortable fitment of a helmet. There are few to no stragglers going astray whether braided or not.


A large wound repaired with cybernetics to help restore function runs down almost the entirety of Zxyl's spine from the C3 vertebra to the L1 vertebra. It is mostly exposed due to a lack of supplied synthflesh with portions of the new spine are visible when not obscured by clothing.

The Arcane Blacksmith (General Aspect)

While Zxyl is an adept droid mechanic and exceptional blacksmith in the construction of armors and weaponry, he has studied extensively arcane Mandalorian and Sith metallurgy and their various relating forging practices. Venzos has even gone so far as to learn how the Force integrates with current and former technologies of many different eras to expand his knowledge base.

While not on an assignment or otherwise engaged in an active activity, this Taldryanite can usually be found inside a workshop constructing new armors, weaponry, and upgrades to existing pieces of technology, of the belief that all works have room for improvement; even a little. This arcane blacksmith is an absolute perfectionist in his trade, and will immediately restart a piece should he find the slightest imperfection or malformation in his current or previous projects.

Unpredictability Is Survivability - This Is The Way (General Aspect)

Venzos has a firm belief through personal experiences that unpredictability survivability in this harsh galaxy, and focuses on being unpredictable to avoid being profiled and tracked by nefarious people that may be hunting him. Most sentients tend to prefer routine and patterns; Zxyl is forever changing the way he operates. He'll rarely do something perceivable out in the open the same way twice, whether it's a route to a destination and the way he covers his tracks, or the way he takes out an intended target.

As a follower of the Way of the Mandalore - Zxyl never removes his helmet in the vicinity of others. His almost pre-programmed innate unpredictability helps prevent people from studying the half-breed's movements and mannerisms, but can also slow down his ability to learn and perfect skills that are unfamiliar to him.

A Man Of Commitment. Focus. Sheer Will. (Personality Aspect)

Zxyl is a well measured behemoth of sheer will and commitment, with an immense level of focus and high level of Resolve on his end goal. He allows nothing to stand in his way of his intended target or objective. Venzos isn't afraid to go outside the box when conventional weapons fail or he's restricted of his typical weapons, utilizing the most rudimentary items like a hydrospanner or eating utensil. Even if severely injured, he will soldier on. While not a cruel being, this Mandalorian will punish those that inhibit his progress in creative and sadistic ways - and shows little empathy to things he deems unrelated to him or his business.

Zxyl Venzos is unconcerned with collateral damage, procedural norms, or the rules of engagement. His goal is to eliminate the target or complete the objective, with failure not an option that crosses his mind. This brash and somewhat reckless do-it-or-die mentality almost always puts Venzos at an increased risk of a permanent injury or impairment, with minor injuries usually the norm.

He's A Regular Ol' Merc With A Mouth (Personality Aspect)

Zxyl Venzos was born with an immensely sarcastic wit, deploying it in even the most inappropriate of circumstances. Whether it's an important briefing or the middle of the battlefield masacre, he don’t care. Zxyl's sarcastic tendency and inability to keep his mouth shut knows almost no bounds. He often speaks out of turn, spurring crude or rude jokes, and is incredibly stoic in his attitude.

This half-breed ain't afraid to call it as he sees it, whether it's a good plan or stupid one.Venzos comes up with most of his creative jokes and sarcastic statements on the fly. While some might appreciate his sarcastic and brutish sense of humor, it can also be annoying and cruel.

You Don't Scare Me! (Combat Aspect)

Zxyl Venzos doesn't scare easily, having become adept at shielding it behind a subconscious wall. This lack of fear allows him to enter a battlefield with little worry about consequences or danger, performing at a peak level of mental conditioning in most scenarios.

To go along with the absence of fear in Venzos' soul, this scoundrel Mandalorian lacks much regard for the severity of the situations he finds himself in, often increasing potential risk of injury to himself or others. When something does spook him, it rattles him and leaves this "merc with a mouth" in a state of temporary state of nervousness and rather quiet.

Bring It On, Spoonbender! (Combat Aspect)

Zxyl has trained extensively in Anti-Force User Warfare, or as he calls it, fighting spoonbenders. This mercenary prefers the use of reliable blaster and miscellaneous weaponry but carries a fairly iconic weapon — a lightsaber — on his belt for those big emergencies where range isn't an option. Zxyl has beyond-adequate non-Force user training with lightsaber weaponry, having specialized specifically in lightsaber combat when using his skills in Bladed Weapons; but does not have any training or knowledge in the lightsaber forms.

Zxyl's knowledge of the various maneuvers spoonbenders can execute with their enhanced abilities and awareness causes him to tread carefully when combating lightsaber wielding combatants. Extensive use of lightsaber weaponry has actually dulled his regular swordsmanship skills, leaving the Zabrak-Human rather clumsy and unprofessional with anything weightier than a dagger — making him almost entirely reliant on a lightsaber weapon as a melee weapon.
