Charcter Bio - Jariah Syn was a male Human bounty hunter active at the time of the Second Imperial Civil War. He was co-pilot of the starship Mynock, the crew of which also included his friends Deliah Blue and Cade Skywalker.
When Syn was seven years old, his father Zareb Syn was slain by the Cathar Jedi Rasi Tuum during the former's raid on the mining world Roon. To honor his late friend, the Feeorin pirate Rav raised Syn in Zareb's stead, and played to Syn's hatred of the Jedi by telling him falsehoods about the Jedi Order. As he grew, Syn learned how to use Yuuzhan Vong weaponry from Chonyo, a Yuuzhan Vong member of the crew of Rav's ship, the Crimson Axe.
In the aftermath of the Massacre of Ossus, Rav's crew, including Syn, came across Jedi Padawan Cade Skywalker floating in the debris above the planet. Despite misgivings from Rav, Syn, unaware that Skywalker was a Jedi, insisted that Skywalker join their crew. The two became close friends, although Skywalker hid his Jedi background from Syn and the rest of the Crimson Axe crew. At some point, the pair left Rav's crew and struck out on their own, having recruited the Zeltron mechanic Deliah Blue as the third crew member of the ship Mynock.
In 137 ABY, Syn found himself unwittingly caught up in the Second Imperial Civil War after a job on Vendaxa revealed that his captain was not only a Jedi, but the heir to the Skywalker bloodline. As a result of his association with Skywalker, Syn, as well as Blue, were captured by Imperials and used as pawns in the Sith's effort to turn Skywalker to the dark side. After they were freed, Syn would later come to terms with Skywalker's connection to the Force and would provide backup for Skywalker on his various missions. Syn would subsequently also come to terms with his father's death after encountering Rasi Tuum during a mission at the Hidden Jedi Temple and hearing his side of the story.
A very pragmatic man and a weapons expert, Syn was known for using unconventional and sometimes illegal weapons, such as Yuuzhan Vong thud bugs and razor bugs, having been taught how to use them by Chonyo, a Yuuzhan Vong crewmember on the Crimson Axe. He was not a merciful man, and had no problem bringing in a bounty dead (rather than alive), reasoning that a dead bounty was a "sure thing." Syn looked out first and foremost for himself, and often clashed with Cade Skywalker over the latter's leadership. Despite any misgivings Syn may have had about Skywalker's plans, he was loyal to his friend. Having grown up together on the Crimson Axe, Syn considered Skywalker a brother, and used that bond to reach him when Skywalker would behave irrationally. Syn has talked Skywalker into coming back from the edge of the dark side, serving as the voice of reason while trying to stop Skywalker from hurting Ahnah Rawk or from Force choking Morrigan Corde to death.
Although done so after the fact, Syn also pointed out how selfish Skywalker's motives were for killing Darth Krayt and saving the life of Azlyn Rae. Aside from Skywalker, Syn also cared about Deliah Blue, the Zeltron mechanic of the Mynock and Skywalker's on/off lover. When Syn thought them both dead in an explosion on Wayland, he cried.
Due to witnessing his father's death at the hands of the Cathar Jedi Rasi Tuum, as well as the influence of Rav, Syn developed a hatred for Jedi. Syn grew up believing that Jedi could take control of people's minds and make them kill themselves. Upon discovering that his friend Cade Skywalker?who he grew up with and considered a brother?was once a Jedi, Syn felt hurt and betrayed and threatened Skywalker with a blaster. Despite his anger at Skywalker, Syn refused to divulge any info about Skywalker to agents of Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire, even after being tortured and implanted with coral seeds. With the help of Deliah Blue, Syn later came to terms with the fact that Skywalker used to be a Jedi. During a trip to the Hidden Jedi Temple, Syn also came to terms with his father's death after hearing Rasi Tuum's side of the story and began to let go of all the preconceived notions Rav had implanted into him over the years.
Syn loved to get drunk, womanize and gamble. He would often spend all of his share of the credits on drinks and developed an addiction to gambling; Blue often chided him for spending or losing too much money. Syn also loved causing explosions, which he referred to as "boom"; he himself stated that he "lived for 'boom'".
Besides Basic, Syn also knows the Huttese language, which he uses interchangeably with Basic. He also learned the Yuuzhan Vong language from his time with Chonyo on the Crimson Axe.
