Description: Jaxxon was a quick-witted Lepi smuggler from Coachelle Prime. The most rambunctious of his family's thirteen children, he left his homeworld at an early age, after stealing an unprotected freighter. He made his way to Nar Shaddaa, where he began to perform odd jobs, quickly becoming familiar with the important elements of fringe culture. After a short stint as a mercenary, he decided to try his hand at smuggling, and he bought a WUD-500 star yacht, christening it the Rabbit's Foot. However, the starship was fraught with mechanical problems and he was forced to land at the shady spaceport of Aduba-3. Needing to acquire funds in order to make repairs, he accepted a job from Han Solo, and became part of the Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3, a mercenary force tasked with defending the small village of Onacra. After protecting the community from Cloud-Riders, the group was forced to fight off the Behemoth from the World Below. Due to Solo's efforts, the giant monster was killed, and Jaxxon was able to get the money needed to repair his ship.
Later, Jaxxon paired up with one of his fellow Star-Hoppers, Amaiza Foxtrain, to help him in his smuggling business. Using her skill at gambling, the two eventually built up enough money to modify the Rabbit's Foot considerably, making it a formidable smuggling vessel. A short time after the Battle of Yavin, bounty hunters loyal to Beilert Valance, who were looking for clues to the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker, captured Jaxxon. The hunters had inadvertently confused one of Jaxxon's fellow Star-Hoppers, Jimm Doshun, with Skywalker, and knew that Jaxxon would know his location. After prying the location of Aduba-3 from Jaxxon, Valance and his crew went to the world to capture "Skywalker." However, Jaxxon and Foxtrain got there first, and in a carefully executed plan they were able to defeat Valance's men, leaving only him alive at the end of the encounter. Once Valance had realized his mistake, he fled from Aduba-3, claiming that the Star-Hoppers would never stop him from locating his quarry.
Jaxxon was born on the planet Coachelle Prime to a small family by Lepi standards. One of thirteen children, Jaxxon was the most rambunctious of the bunch and had dreams of seeing the larger galaxy. However, his family was quite conservative, keeping a quiet house, and his mother had hopes that Jaxxon would grow out of his restlessness and settle down, hopefully to marry a nice girl and father a large family. Despite his mother's hopes, Jaxxon remained uncontrollable, and even before his teenage years, he had spent a decent amount of time in the planet's juvenile remand centers. As the odd one out among his family, Jaxxon decided to go off-world. At the age of twelve, he stole a poorly-guarded freighter and headed for parts unknown.
On a course for the Outer Rim Territories, Jaxxon eventually landed on Nar Shaddaa, the Smuggler's Moon. Although he had neglected his studies on his homeworld, Jaxxon quickly took to his new life on his own, becoming well-schooled in the elements of fringe culture and streetwise survival. To earn a living, Jaxxon began taking on assorted odd jobs, eventually falling into a tougher crowd. By the time of the Clone Wars, there was a price on his head. He joined the mercenary squad known as the Boys of Corus a short time later. Based out of the Corus system, the group helped Jaxxon hone his marksmanship skills, and he was soon well-versed in the use of weaponry. However, during one operation in the Corporate Sector, the group was subject to a double-cross by their employers. The event marked the end of the mercenary squad, and Jaxxon returned to Nar Shaddaa without a steady-paying job.
Starved for a source of income, Jaxxon decided to pursue a career in smuggling. With the small amount of funds that he had saved up, Jaxxon invested in a WUD-500 starship, a beat-up freighter that he christened the Rabbit's Foot. However, the used Corellian craft was rife with problems. On a run through the Aduba system, mechanical problems forced Jaxxon to make a stop on the planet of Aduba-3. Stuck until he could repair his starship, Jaxxon set out to gather supplies to begin fixing the Rabbit's Foot.
Personality and traits
Jaxxon was a quick-witted individual with a street smart personality and a quick temper. Tall and lanky, with a large pair of buck teeth and short green fur, he easily stood out in a crowd and was often the victim of stabbing insults for his peculiar appearance. However, Jaxxon always responded in kind to these rude responses, giving his attackers a strong kick in the chest or a blaster shot to the face. Jaxxon was not hesitant to speak his mind, constantly voicing his complaints during the operation on Aduba-3, much to Han Solo's irritation. Additionally, when he found himself attracted to Amaiza Foxtrain, he made no secret of his admiration for her, complimenting her even during the heat of battle with the Cloud-Riders. However, for all his bravado, Jaxxon was a calculating Lepi, and during the attack of Beilert Valance's hunters on Aduba-3, he was able to help Foxtrain carefully craft a plan of attack, defeating the soldiers despite being heavily outnumbered.
In regards to fighting technique, Jaxxon was known to fire two blasters simultaneously in each hand, although he was fully capable of using only one. When fighting on Aduba-3, Jaxxon was seen fighting with his fists and feet, as well as his weapons, showing his skill in hand-to-hand combat. Jaxxon also proved incredibly quick on the battlefield. He was the quickest of the Star-Hoppers, and during their battle with the Behemoth from the World Below, he was able to avoid being killed by the monster's laser attack several times, despite being in point blank range of its attack. Although his species was omnivorous, Jaxxon was inclined towards eating meat. He disliked space carrots and enjoyed a good steak over other foods. Although not overtly religious, Jaxxon was known to exclaim to the Holy Hutch several times over his career.
