Shadows of the Ascendancy
Dachooka and Sarmos Tiss
Trandoshan, male, soldier, chief of security on IouM-1
Sarmos is a strange trandoshan in that his best friend is a wookiee named Dachooka. This odd friendship began many years ago when Sarmos was a new member on a trandoshan raiding party that was paid by the empire to subdue a village of wookiees of which Dachooka was a member. The leader of the raiding party was brutal and tryannical. One day Dachooka was singled out by the leader while Dachooka was trying to stop his neice from being beaten. Tiring of the harsh treatment and hating his leader Sarmos followed the trandoshan who had Dachooka at blasterpoint, leading him to a mass grave. Sarmos took the leader from behind and killed the other trandoshan. He uncuffed Dachooka without a word and lead him back to the village. Upon asking after the leaders whereabouts Sarmos opened fire on the other trandoshans. THe Wookies in turn rose up and slew their overseers until only Sarmos remained. As the mob of angry wookiees were about to descend upon the last trandoshan, Dachooka stopped them. Sarmos agreed to leave the wookiees in peace and took the starship. He ended up working for Transtar as a security professional. During a bit of leave he decided to see if he could look up Dachooka, who had been numbered during the Imperial occupation. His number led him to find the wookiee had been enslaved and sent as a laborer to the mining station IouM-1. Seeing this, Sarmos requested a transfer and waited years until the security chief position on IouM-1 opened up.
