Description: Serji-X Arrogantus was a male Human swoop jockey who toured the professional circuit on Caprioril during the Imperial Period. He was nicknamed "the Arrogant One," due to his continual flagrant disregard for the rules and the dangers of professional swoop racing. He was usurped by the corporate-backed Dug racer Hodrix, and as his fans were rapidly siphoned away from him, Arrogantus attempted an incredibly dangerous stunt, in the hopes of attracting some of the attention he had once enjoyed. The stunt resulted in a perilous crash that almost claimed Arrogantus' life. He was deemed unfit to race, so he left the professional circuit to race with swoop gangs in the Outer Rim Territories.
Making his way to Aduba-3, Arrogantus formed the Cloud-Ridersâ€”a group of reprobates and degenerates who preyed upon the local farmers, exploiting the weak and innocent. Arrogantus in particular targeted the village of Onacra, with whom he had worked out a compromise in which they would pay him a considerable tithe each year, allaying his need to pillage their settlement. However, Arrogantus tired of the arrangement, and returned to his ransacking of the town. In 0 ABY, when attempting to claim one of the farm girls, Merri Shen, Arrogantus and the Cloud-Riders met resistance from a group of gunslingers led by Corellian smuggler Han Solo. Arrogantus was later killed when a large beast emerged from deep caverns near Onacra, wreaking havoc.
Serji-X Arrogantus was a Human male who had a career as a professional swoop jockey on Caprioril in the Swo-O'Rim racing circuit. He continued that line of work for several years, and earned himself the moniker of "the Arrogant One," due to his flagrant disregard of both the rules and dangers that distinguished the sport of swoop racing. In 22 BBY, he participated in a race in the city of Tasjon on Corulag, against Ignar Ominaz, the top-ranked swoop racer at the time. It was a rare meeting of the two most significant talents in the swoop-racing field, as the Swo-O'Rim circuit rarely overlapped with the TransGal circuit that Ominaz raced in. Although Ominaz won the race, Arrogantus finished nine seconds later. When speaking to HoloNet News after the race, Arrogantus confidently decried Ominaz's abilities, confident that his new Flare-P swoop from Mobquet Swoops and Speeders would give him the requisite edge to secure the top seed. HoloNet News believed that Arrogantus would secure the top seed at the Plooriod 940 on Corsin, a month after the Tasjon race.
Arrogantus earned a great many fans for his opulent displays and showboating, but he was eventually usurped by the newcomer Hodrix, a Dug hailing from Malastare who had the advantage of corporate backing. Arrogantus' manager took a job with the corporations, leaving Arrogantus alone to deal with his own affairs. In an attempt to regain his former standing, Arrogantus attempted a particularly dangerous and foolhardy stunt. As a result, he suffered a bad accident, and his prize speeder was wrecked. The only thing saving Arrogantus himself from death was his helmet. He sustained severe cranial trauma, and was ruled unfit to race. With his career at an end, Arrogantus made his way to the Outer Rim Territories. There, he participated in races with outlaw swoop gangs, and would relay stories of his former glory to the low-lifes that he was forced to gravitate to. He eventually made his way to Aduba-3, and formed a gang, the Cloud-Ridersâ€”a pack of miscreants who utilized stripped down skyspeeders and swoops. They were loyal to Arrogantus only through their own ignorance. As his vehicle of choice, Arrogantus flew a modified Peregrine-340 airspeeder.
Personality and traits
Serji-X Arrogantus was noted for his callous disregard for the rules of swoop racing, and his arrogant attitude towards the real hazards and dangers posed by the sport. Such was his arrogance that he was nicknamed "the Arrogant One." He enjoyed a strong fanbase, but upon losing them to the newcomer Hodrix, Arrogantus was driven to desperate measures, attempting an incredibly foolhardy stunt that almost claimed his life. He was able to attract unintelligent low-lifes to his cause when he formulated the Cloud-Riders, and although he was pragmatic enough to accept a deal with the village of Onacra, his impatience eventually got the better of him, and he returned to his pillaging ways.
Arrogantus was labaled a "devil" by the villagers of Onacra. Conversely, he believed himself to possess delicate sensibilities, and was not particularly one to bandy words with his opponents. Respectively, he had a low opinion of the farmers, calling them "peons," and Han Solo's Star-Hoppers. He was not averse to threatening his opponents, however, but had an inflated opinion of his own importance, scoffing at the idea that the assembled Star-Hoppers could even hope to challenge him. Arrogantus valued dramatic and opulent entrances, and determined that he would never surrender to anyone. When the behemoth of Aduba-3 decimated his men, it affected him personally, and he resolved that the monster would die at his hands.
Arrogantus considered himself a gentleman in private, although he conceded that he was a maladroit one. Rather than simply claiming his beloved, Merri Shen, though force, he wanted to seduce and woo her with his charms. In addition to his charms, Arrogantus possessed a blaster pistol, a personal skyspeeder, and a fake identification. He also had the ability to speak, read, and write Basic, and could also speak Dug. For his attire, he donned a brown leather flight jacket, and a set of green-lensed flight goggles.
