Privateer Vance Kordall
Vance is tall with a lean build. His brown hair is just past ear level and is kept groomed whenever possible, while his blue eyes look like they’re studying everything and everyone in the room. He sports a gentlemanly mustache, full and trim, that extends to the corners of his mouth and is accented by a slim, pointed patch just under his lower lip. His skin is a pale light pigmentation and shows no visible scarring despite his age.
Loyalty Is Earned, Not Bought
My Fees Are High For A Reason
While Vance Kordall will see a job through to its conclusion and put forward his best effort, it’s still just a job. Vance Kordall's true loyalties lie to his friends, and through thick and thin,he will stand by them and die for them if needed. This loyalty is reserved for those who have earned Vance Kordall's trust, putting him at odds with other Mercenaries that are only doing a job for the money. This also makes it harder for employers to trust his motives, often times creating extra competition and difficulty finding work. None of it matters to Vance Kordall, though, because loyalty to his friends is not something credits can buy.
Vance Kordall does not charge a high price because he has to pay for a life of luxury; he charges a high price because he knows that he is the best in the game and worth the credits. Those who do not know Vance Kordall will feel he is gouging them, but those who have seen him in action know that he always delivers. This bravado follows Vance Kordall around and builds on the success of completed jobs and can be off-putting to other Mercenaries that will try and lash back by pointing out his failures.
Gentleman At Heart
The Finer Things In Life
Despite his line of work, Vance Kordall still sees himself as a refined gentleman and will often put on a show of being haughty and arrogant to those he does not know. Vance Kordall only lets the mask slip to show his more laid back nature to those he trusts. To those he dislikes, he will actually become even more insufferable as taunts and quips without any regard for who or what he might be offending.
Vance Kordall would much rather be behind a hand of good sabacc cards or a rare vintage of aged liquor than with his blasters or ship. More often than not, he will spend nights at high-end establishments gambling, drinking and "socializing". Vance Kordall can survive without the finer things, but he sure would rather not. This preference follows him onto the job, so it is not uncommon for Vance Kordall to insult a client or potential partner by commenting on their choice of beverage or recreation.
Play For Blood
The Rough Weather Duelist
Through a mixture of cocksure courage and arrogant swagger, Vance Kordall will not back down from a challenge when called out, even if the wiser path is to walk away or let it go. Vance Kordall's personality does tend to rub a lot of people the wrong way, which generally puts him into situations that escalate quickly to violence. While he may not be the one to always start a fight, he will always see it through to it’s conclusion. Some have tried to play a challenge off as idle banter, but when Vance Kordall initiates or accepts a challenge, he does not hold back.
Vance's lifestyle can land him in the middle of a fight at any given point. These fights tend to break out even if he is sick, intoxicated and/or fatigued. Sometimes he's even sober. Kordall will often use his Subterfuge skill as a first line of defense in any situation, but will always fall back on his trusted LL-30 blaster pistol's. Vance is a gifted gunslinger that can perform well even when a situation calls for him to fight in less than ideal circumstances, which has earned him the title of "Rough Weather Duelist". He leaves the question of skill verses luck to the philosophers and focuses simply on always figuring out a way to win. Vance's focus on excelling as a marksman leaves him somewhat lacking in any other martial capacity. The knife he carries is more for utility than combat purposes.
