Description: Amaiza Foxtrain was a Human female who found work, respectively, as a dancer, a pirate, a gunslinger, and a smuggler. In her youth she worked, along with her twin sister Jodelle, as part of a sultry dancing/tumbling act. They were managed by the Twi'lek Quatrain Pudundruh, who was later forced to sell them into slavery. The sisters were purchased by the Black Hole Gang pirates, and found their relatively sheltered existences subverted in the new environment, but were not abused by the pirates.
When Jodelle was accidentally killed during a pirate operation, Foxtrain resolved to turn herself into a lethal combatant, and eventually became an effective and competent pirate in her own right. She rose to the top of the Black Hole pirate gang, only to fall afoul of the Imperial Navy. Left destitute, Foxtrain found work on Aduba-3 as a part of the Corellian Han Solo's Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3, who in turn defended the farmer village of Onacra from the Cloud-Riders gang led by Serji-X Arrogantus. Foxtrain later teamed up with fellow Starhopper Jaxxon, a Lepi, and encountered the relentless bounty hunter Beilert Valance.
During the Imperial Period, Amaiza Foxtrain, a Human female, and her twin sister, Jodelle, were born to a sabacc dealer and a cocktail waitress on Ord Mantell. At an early age, the sisters were orphaned by Mantellian gangsters, who were in turn ultimately killed by the gunslinger Gallandro. They eventually became the sole members of a sultry dancing/tumbling act that performed at the Lady Fate Casino, known as the Foxtrain sisters. One of the patrons of their act was the Wookiee con artist Chalmun, who taught Foxtrain to gamble and speak the Wookiee language of Shyriiwook. The sisters' youth and inexperience proved hazardous, howeverâ€”they were easy prey for the Twi'lek entrepreneur Quatrain Pudundruh. The enterprising Twi'lek offered to manage the sisters when they were 18 years of age, and although business was good for a year, they struggled through the next season. Pudundruh was forced to sell off all his assets, and as a result the Foxtrain sisters were sold into slavery.
The sisters were purchased by the pirate Black Hole Gang gang, who operated from Delphon. The girls were not abused by the pirates, but their sheltered lifestyles were thrown into disarray while living in the gang culture. During a raid, Jodelle was accidentally killed while accidentally mishandling a blaster. As a result, Amaiza Foxtrain was determined not to meet the same fate as her sister, and set about honing the skills she would require to properly defend herself, In time, Foxtrain's education progressed beyond basic defensive knowledge, such as how to operate a blaster, and she became a capable pirate in her own right, and her prowess with firearms became legendary. She progressed through the ranks of the Black Hole Gang, and earned death sentences in six systems. At some stage, she encountered the smuggler Han Solo, and his Wookiee co-pilot, Chewbacca. Foxtrain demonstrated to Solo her skills with a blaster, shooting the antennae off a ji-ant at 600 yards. She progressively used her surname of "Foxtrain" less and less, and was widely known merely as "Amaiza."
The leadership of the Black Hole gang was continually under contention, and would often be seized by force. Foxtrain was popular among her fellow pirates, and it was often suggested that she should be the new leader of the gang. At some stage, one of the Black Hole chiefs, Kayso, managed the pirates poorly, and instead elected to keep all of their ill-gotten gains to himself. When Foxtrain learned of the betrayal, she shot Kayso, and thereby took control of the Black Hole gang as den-mother, and captain. Her tenure was brief though, when the arrival of the Imperial Star Destroyer Riptide arrived in the Delphon system, enforcing a crackdown on pirate activity within the area. The Black Hole Gang scattered and disbanded, with Foxtrain left to fend for herself.
Personality and traits
Foxtrain, in her youth, was particularly inexperienced in business matters. The death of her sister roused her into action, and she was driven into the life of a pirate. She was well liked by her fellow pirates, and claimed leadership of the Black Hole gang when she found the actions of one chief, Kayso, to be unconscionable. She managed to retain a youthful appearance, through secrets she had compiled in her extensive travels. Foxtrain was hugely confident in her own skills as well, believing herself to be a more precise marksman than the Spiner Hedji. She was also quick to act, not questioning the orders of the leader of the Star-Hoppers, Han Solo, and instead leaping into action when called for.
Foxtrain was initially uninterested in the prospect of working with the Lepi Jaxxon. She also found particular mirth in the fact that Solo was attracted to the young Merri Shen, and had no qualms about illustrating her amusement openly. Solo in turn criticized her, claiming that her tendency to speak her mind was hardly an asset. Foxtrain also found amusement in the antiquated and outmoded speech patterns of Kihotay, although he admired his skills, considering both his age and obvious inexperience in the art of combat. As their time together wore on, Foxtrain grew more fond of Jaxxon, and grew particularly concerned when he made a foolhardy attempt to confront the Behemoth from the World Below on his own.
Equipment and skills
To achieve a more catlike appearance, Foxtrain would occasionally wear decorative corneal lenses. She was a crack shot with the dual blaster pistols she would keep slung at her hips. She was often scantily clad, opting to wear red leather, and a red flower in her hair. Her skills as a pilot were about average, but she was highly competent as a mechanic. She was also equipped with a vibrodagger, and could speak Huttese, Basic, Rodese, and Shyriiwook. Foxtrain was also a talented gambler, and an exceptional gunslinger, able to gun down many opponents before they could even draw their own weapons. She was also a qualified plotter, able to devise a plan to outwit the bounty hunter Beilert Valance when he threatened Jimm Doshun's life.
