Born in 42 BBY on Leria Kerlsil, Leria Kersil system, mid rim. Early life is still a dark haze due to the a rare case of hybernation sickness. This came about due to the twenty eight years he spent frozen in carbonite. Recent events have shed light on his past life. He always thought his roll as one of the Black Sun was only as support, his World seemed to crash down around him when he found out he was in fact a slave trader, and a very good one at that. A very close friend told him 'Who he used to be, is not who he is now.'
Joined the Vast Empire and became a Storm Trooper in 8 ABY, currently has no plans to leave.

Appearance & Personality
Weight: 210 pounds
Hair Color: Black, but he usually keeps it shaved.
Eye Color: Blue
Cybernetics: Obtained from a private benefactor, his twin model C-45T cyber systems are state-of-the-art. Using highly advanced motor control nerve reaction simulators, they are capable of responding faster than biological arms.
The strength capacity of the arms is classified, known only to him. But he has shown to be able to hold and fire a EHWB-10 heavy repeating blaster with no stand, and still maintain accuracy. It's been said that he could pull the arms off a Wookie, but no one knows for sure.
Power is supplied by the T-5 series gelpacks located in hidden and protected places along the arms. Various modifications including the placement of the model RLW-77 wrist laser system, and two short vibro knives have been made over the months.
The gel packs have a half life of roughly two thousand years, though with the use he puts them through he might need to have them replaced in fifty years.
Update: After several years of using cybernetic legs, an experimental procedure now has him sporting organic legs, cloned from his own cells. He chose to keep the cybernetic arms, but he now has living organic skin grafts that can be used to hide the cybernetic systems when needed.
Other Character Details:
Personality: Easy going for the most part, has a tendency to mumble to himself on occasion. Unable to remember all of his past, due to a rare case of hibernation sickness brought on by the twenty eight year improper encasement in carbonite. Works well in small dysfunctional groups.
Contrary to popular belief he does have a life outside the Storm Trooper Corps. He enjoys vacations away from the hectic lifestyle of a Trooper. Being promoted to Squad Leader of RAIDERS has been difficult for him. Due to past experiences, he has never wished to lead a group of people ever again. His first mission in which he has operational control four month before he joined the Empire lead to two of the three man team dead. Accepting the fact he is now in control of many lives is something he has not achieved yet. It is believed he never will accept it, only continue to do his best to insure the safety of his squad.
He does go places out of uniform, or out of his multitude sets of armor he has. One such article of clothing is a simple, but expensive suit. He is known to have a lavish lifestyle outside of the Vast Empire, some have commented he seems to be 'living above his paygrade.' He has never commented on how he manages to have a large amount of credits.
Four previous attempts to locate his parents ended in failure, on the fifth he was successful. His sister ended up in his squad by pure chance. They eventually put enough pieces of their lives together to figure out they were brother and sister. She told him about what happened during the years he vanished, and where his parents were not at. She told him they moved to Yashuvhu for many years before moving to Dantooine, Naboo, and finally Torin at various times during his twenty eight year absence.
It is of note that the planet Torin is extremely difficult to find, and even with the proper coordinates actually getting a nav computer to locate it is a tricky process. It is located deep in the outer rim, so far out few have even heard of it.
Ever since he was found and thawed he has not had anyone special in his life. He went almost two years in the Corps before he found he could care for anyone.
A hand full of days from the beginning of the Hrail Campaign Joamer's life changed forever. A single young pair of eyes turned his nice quiet safe world upside down. It was weeks before he could bring it under a semblance of control again. Due to multiple reasons, he decided it was time he seek a transfer to another squad. His request was accepted and after the Hrail campaign was completed he joined the RAIDERS squad.
Over the next days, and weeks he began to control the emotions that would float to the surface every time he was around Jaenna Caldwin, the now Squad Leader of RAIDERS. He was not sure if she returned the feelings, he would probably never know when he noticed he found himself more attached to her assistant squad leader Ayme 'Havock' Katash. He knew within the first moment of seeing her they had been destined to be together. He felt it in every fiber of his being.
He fought the feelings though, he knew it was against regulations to care this much for someone who was your commanding officer. Weeks passed and he was unable to control it anymore, his nightmare began during the squads planned week long vacation. He found out slowly piece by piece he might never stand next to her.
During the attack on Tadath by Thrawn, he found life was truly unfair. Ayme had chosen Jaenna, he knew they were the better match. Even now he is not sure if he's reached the bottom of the sink hole he fell into.
After retiring from the army for over a year his relationship status has evolved again. He's locked any feelings he's had for anyone deep down. He knows duty to the corps comes first before any real relationship, specially now being Squad Leader.
After the attack on Tadath, Joamer decided it was time to move out of the barracks. Partly due to the fact he needed time to be alone and the other is because he had always wanted his own house.
Zyntre Villa was bought in full by Joamer a month after the attack. It is located roughly sixty klicks away from Fort Sexton. Set in the center of woodlands, offering complete privacy.
Three stories, mostly glass construction lets in daytime light. Giving the place a open welcome feel, at night being this far away from civilization the outside is pitch black when the flood lights are off. The sky opens up and you can see nothing but stars, on some nights you can see the plane of the Galaxy spread lazily across the nights sky. For someone who has always loved space travel it is very relaxing.
In the front is the main door, and the underground parking garage. It is big enough to keep a good number of his vehicles, and most of his armory. It of course has a swimming pool, something no house should be without.
Lightly furnished and decorated tastefully he rarely throws parties. Instead keeping the villa a near secret so he can have some place to run to to escape for a few hours. The time he spents at the villa is now considerably lessoned due to the demands of being Squad Leader.
Recent situations have caused many people to question whether or not Yashuvhu is Joamer's real home world. He remains mute on if it is or not, the picture he has of his 'old neighborhood' clearly shows a city view that does not exist on Yashuvhu.
From the long nights spent laying awake trying to remember a name he found it. Stokoryce. He remembered this was his hometown, so he went to work searching. After hours spent hunkered over a computer he found Leria Kerlsil. Located in the Mid Rim, it had one sun Leria Kersil and two planets. Telil Menin was a rock, no complex lifeforms to speak of. Leria Kerlsil was the primary planet.
Most of the next section was a story he pieced together during the early stages of his career. It is now considered mostly inaccurate. A more detailed and true account of his past is slowly emerging as pieces of his old life come back to him. Some of them more dark then others.
Born twenty four years before the start of the clone wars on the planet Yashuvhu. Located in Wild Space, bordering the unknown regions. His early life was boring for the most part, backwater planets had more fun then he did. At the age of eighteen he was given a Firefly class light transport already heavily modified to carry cargo. After the age of seventeen his father gave him command of the transport, and retired from the business of making core runs.
Note- He is not sure how accurate the next section is now. He is only sure that the carbonite storage incident is in fact true.
Joined the Yashuvhu security force around the age of eighteen, but due to the slow pace of life there was little to do except take pot shots at random things on long days. When the news reached them that the clone wars had begun, he dropped everything and made his way to Coruscant. Upon arrival he put his ship into long term storage and tried to find a recruiter, but was waylaid en route and tossed into an inadequate carbon storage facility. Deep in the underbelly of the city he remained frozen for twenty eight years.
Twenty eight years in carbon storage is nothing if properly done. However extended freezing time in outdated facilities leads to uncertain complications. Loss of left arm and leg, loss of all body hair, and extensive memory loss. During the slow rehabilitation he was able to find his old ship and reacquire it.
Leria Kerlsil is his home planet. He was born 42 BBY, served in the city guard for years before he gained the title of Captain of the Guard. Retired a year later when his more adventurous side took over. Met Zyti Murnoc, a Black Sun slave trader who took the young man under his wing.
His life as a slave trader for the criminal organization will never be fully accounted for. He knows he was a slave trader, bounty hunter for a short time, and other more profitable things. He has recently decided to seek an absolution for his crimes. He knows his old life is long since dead, but he can not hide from the guilt he carries with him.
The Black Sun
Recent events have lead him to make contact with an organization he used to belong to. A month after the Thrawn attack, the RAIDERS were in bad shape. Most of the squad had vanished on leave, or simply decided to vanish altogether. The two that remained were Ayme Katash, and Joamer Reistlin. After the death of Ghost Squad, they both decided they wanted time away from the Empire. So they boarded one of Joamer's ships and left.
Arriving at Corellia, they met up with two of Ayme's old friends. After a few days they decided more family was needed, so they went in search of her parents. Information led them to Coruscant, that is when their trail went cold. Joamer upon hearing Ayme's true history, decided to free her once in for all from the Black Sun. He would not have her living as a slave anymore.
Making contact with the organization that was a shadow of its former self, he pleaded with them to free her. He offered his services once again in exchange. They agreed, and branded him as one of their own, or so he believed. When he returned to the hotel he found she had been captured, and would be sold at a slave auction in a few days time.
He came close to losing the auction, his last rival bid more money then he had, and he watched as the auctioneer counted down from five. He prepared for one final charge at the stage in an attempt to free her, but was stopped when Jed, Ayme's adopted father, showed up and bid enough money to free her. Within an hour they had left Coruscant behind, and were on their way back home to Tadath.
Ayme told him 'Who he used to be, is not the man he is now.' He regrets the things he did in his past life, even though he knows he can never repay the debt he owes the Galaxy. He hopes he can find some measure of peace knowing she is finally free from the burden of the Black Sun.
Retirement and Return
Events following the attack by Thrawn, caused him to remove himself from active duty in order to reassess his position as a Storm Trooper. He spent the year traveling, searching for another place to call home. His travels took him eventually to his old haunts, where he got in touch with friends he thought long dead. A nagging voice in the back of his head constantly warned him he needed to go back.
Eventually the voice won out, and he returned to active service.
Yosefin Freighting Service
Nothing of importance to report yet. The company is still getting on its feet. The company handles security for cargo transport operations, as well as lending fighters and freighters out at increased prices.
Vast Empire History
Six months is the usual time new recruits spend at the Academy. Due to heavy losses suffered in recent battles he was given the accelerated course, he spent only fifty six days at the academy. Now, with numerous missions under his belt he has found himself taking Academy classes again, something he does not like, and neither do the Instructors. Teaching a former Drill Instructor is not something people like to do.
The story of how he came to be a member of the Empire can be found here in A Story Begins.
The Twilight of the Wraith Squad
Quickly making his way to a very bad sector of space he finally breathed a sigh of relief when he met up with the squad. It took them a few days but they were finally able to find a trail leading away from Corellia. Quickly leaving that hellhole of a planet they followed the trail to Ord Mantel, when they arrived they found things that haunt their dreams even to this day.
After running for their lives from the things that were chasing them. They managed to find evidence to clear their names, but the true murderer still roams the Galaxy, waiting for his chance to strike.
He found out some time ago that he had gradually begun to lessen the amount of weapons he carried into missions. It came apparent during Hrail that his ability to create defenses was sorely lacking.
A few days after they got back to Tadeth, he completed the second assignment on the third tier of heavy weapons. He found the exercise boring and did nothing for him, he had come to discover he was no longer a Heavy Weapons Specialist.
He sent in a specialization transfer request to Combat Engineer, three days later it was granted. He hopes with this training, the squads dependence on his ability to create defenses will not cause the injuries it did on Hrail.
Attack by Thrawn
During the few days of rest they received after the Praexus mission, the rogue Imperial element lead by Thrawn attacked Tadath. The events during that campaign are recorded and can be publicly accessed in other locations.
One thing that was not recorded is the valor, gallantry, and bravery shown by a special ops commando group, known as Ghost Squad. They were activated when the RAIDERS were captured, their mission was rescue and retrieval. The RAIDERS are alive today because of them, not a soul still remains of Ghost squad. They sacrificed their lives in order to see the RAIDERS original mission completed.
Some of the RAIDERS are having a difficult time coping with the sacrifice. A memorial plaque hangs in the squads ready room. In dedication to the sacrifice made in their name.
