Slasher stands roughly two meters in height, he is muscular with a number of scars crisscrossing his upper body that give evidence to the numerous combat missions he has undertaken over the course of his career in the Imperial Navy. He is almost always in uniform, but in those rare occasions where you find him out of uniform, he favors garments that give him plenty of freedom of movement.


Growing up Rorran had a number of trying experiences, from the death of his parents at a young age at the hands of pirates, to being held as a slave by a minor crime syndicate who hoped to use his pheremoes to further their on agenda, but their plan was thwarted when he escaped as a young teen. Due to these and other experiences Rorran has gained a reputation for being rutheless when dealing with Pirates and slavers. Although some people may think the choice of Rorran to join the Imperial Navy, but what initially started as a vendetta against all pirates turned into a love of the structure of military life, and although he occasionally faces criticism and nasty looks because of his species. He is unquestionably loyal to the Empire. Another side effect of his experiences, both in his childhood, and in the time he has spent on the various fields of battle, has led Slasher to become very effective at hiding his feelings at will. Although Rorran has served within the Vast Empire for a number of years, and has flown with many many pilots, he counts very few among his true friends. It is among his true friends that Rorran's real personality rises to the surface, fiercely loyal to his friends, and highly honorable, Rorran will never leave a man behind. While his temper and bloodlust lies very close to the surface, he keeps them tightly reigned at most times, with very few having seen the full ferocity of his temper. Despite all of this however Rorran has somehow managed to hold onto a keen and sometimes very weird sense of humor.


Captain Rorran 'Slasher' Gorma is quite a mystery to many people, but to those who have come to know him he is a very good and true friend.

Early History[edit]

Rorran was born around 23 BBY to Trenda and Rillant Gorma, and spent the first two years of his life with his parents. They fled their home system when a civil war erupted between the forces of the Kr'lanmos Clan and the planetary government, which was supported by a coalition of about a third of the other clans on the planet, while the remaining two-thirds pledged their support to the Kr'lanmos Clan. His parents chose to flee because they had been very vocal and active supporters of the Y'ltonak Clan, and the mythical Ykntola Order of knights who had risen to the occasion to defend that clan throughout history.

Unfortunately for the Gormas their reprieve from the strifes of war was very short lived. Aproximately three years later the family was moving between planets for on a business trip for his father and mother's shipping business, attempting to open a new system to trade from their company, and they found themselves in the middle of a war, their ship was boarded by a group of apparent pirates, who turned out to be members of the N'Ykn'tola Order, a order which had been founded by members of the Kr'lanmos Clan with the express purpose of completely wiping out the Ykntola Order, and they had tracked down the family, the last members of the Order that had escaped from the planet prior to the attack on the order, and they were the last ones known to be at large. His father fought them off as long as he could, but eventually fell under the great weight of the enemy numbers. His mother fell as well, fighting to her last breath after hiding him in a packing container that his parents had kept prepared for years, ready to serve as a lifeboat for him in the event that they were found and attacked, the container went into a special space aboard the ship, and with sensor dampening walls, there was no way for him to be found except by those who would know he was there. After the attackers had left, Rorran left the container and began to walk the ship, waiting to be rescued, which he eventually was by a passing freighter which boarded the ship to see if there was any cargo that could be salvaged.

First Brushes with Ykntola Order[edit]

Ten years passed after the rescue of Rorran by a passing Freighter, Rorran rarely talks about events during this time period, and there is almost no record of what transpired other than that he was held by a Crime Syndicate that Rorran would later help bring down while commander of the Imperial II Frigate Fearless. By this point in his life Rorran had held a number of different jobs, everything from pickpocket, to lookout, to courier pilot as his skill at the controls of a ship began to manifest themselves. It was after one of these courier missions that Rorran found himself alone and penniless on the surface of Falleen, and he had his first remembered run-in with the Ykntola Order. In short order he found himself fighting for the branch of the Order on the planet, without any knowledge of his heritage or his destiny regarding the Ykntola Order, and the role he was destined to play in the future of the Order and their war to protect the small remenants of those clans that had sided with the government against the Kr'lanmos Clan, and the planets which they have settled on. He spent about ten years with that small unit, rising up in their ranks until he joined up with the Empire in 2 ABY, serving until 7 ABY.

Enlistment in Vast Empire Navy[edit]

Approximately 9 ABY Rorran made a fateful decision to return to Military Service, and elected to join the Vast Empire Navy, attending Basic Training and Flight School on board Naval Platform Saratoga, he completed his training in record time, and upon the completion of Flight School he was promoted to Senior Crewman, and ordered to Nazgul Squadron in Pheonix Wing, under the command of then Chief Warrant Officer Geordi 'Driver' Atrasin.

Rorran serves for a long period with Nazgul, moving slowly up the ranks, and holding a number of different positions on his way to his current assignments, his service record includes the following:

  • Nazgul Squadron
    • Flight Member
    • Flight Leader
  • Nightshrike Squadron
    • Executive Officer
  • Regents Reign Squadron
    • Flight Member
  • Tuk'ata Squadron
    • Executive Officer
  • Naval Academy
    • Operator Level 2
    • Trainer Level 2
    • Chief of Staff
    • Executive Officer of Training
    • Chief of Naval Training

After a period of time in an Advisory role, Slasher returned to active duty with the rank of Chief Warrant Officer, and was assigned to the Naval Academy while awaiting assignment to a squadron post, it is during this period of time that a massive and cowardly attack was made on the Navy, wiping out most of the Officer Corps, and leaving many of the Navy's ships Commanderless. Due to his experience, and the endorsement of Commodore Atrasin, his old Squadron Commander, Slasher was ordered to take command of the Warden Class Light Cruiser Onyx, which he served on for a short period of time before he is promoted to the rank of Ensign, and given command of Task Force Besh, with his flagship the Imperial II class Frigate Fearless. He spent multiple years serving in different capacities including captain of the Victory class Star Destroyer Dead Gun. currently Chief of Naval Training with rank of Captain.


Due to the number of things which Slasher owns, he has set aside a separate page for them, in order to keep track of their current locations, crews (in the case of ships) and usage. This page can be found here
