Galford

Galford is a very rare occurance in the galaxy, he's an immortal of a non-human race. Almost all other Immortals were/are
human. Galford followed the way of the Samurai in what many would call a twisted or even deranged manner. Like all
Immortals he was drawn towards the sword and dueling. He trained in the sword and martial arts on Napan for the first 20
or so years of his life, when he was killed in a duel. However he returned to life shortly, and people became afraid of
him. Shortly after leavin Napan he encountered his first real duel, against another immortal. Galford  began to rise in
prominance across the galaxy as an excellent swordsman However he had been killed several times in duels and other
incidents cuasing his skil to backsldie a bit, as well as his confidence. Then the Clone Wars started and Galford went
into hiding. He kept a low profile until he heard about the Napanese Shogun Budokai. He decided that the empire was too
busy with the Rebllion to still be looking for Jedi and Immortals so he decided he would return to his homeworld and win
the Budokai as his own sort of revenge against those who had shunend him over two centuries prior. The combination of his
Napanese heritage and Immortality make him an incredibly, and nearly impossible, foe to defeat, however with the rules
governing the Budokai it is possible. Galford is incredibly fast and is very skilled with sword and martial arts, the only
person to ever duplicate Hanzo's leg throw, although he's latered it slightly. Galford instead warps around at about
mid-chest and spins latteraly and down, catching them between the ground and his knee. The strength increasing
servomotors in his powersuit often make this move very deadly, although it doesn't inehrantly cause as much damage as
Hanzo's move as Hanzo's slams the opponent's HEAD to the ground.

after a human wpould have fallen over dead. Damahe Chart is as Follows

Immortality: Immortals have a special connection to the force that feeds him life force in times of need. Immortals may be
killed through normals means, but unless his head is removed from his body, then he will awaken in 1D rounds with all
wounds healed in 3D rounds. Any force sensitive character taking the life of an immortal will acquire this acute
connection to the force and become immortal through a violent surge of force energy. Disintegration, explosion,
decapitation and anything else which more or less severs the head or destroys the body can render an Immortal dead
(this is largely a GM call).

Absorbtion: When an Immortal takes another Immortal's life he/she receives all of the fallen Immortal's character points,
force points and dark side points through a violent force explosion (similar to the force explosion experienced when
Emperor Palpatine first died).

Force sense: Immortals can sense when another is nearby (usually within 20 meters) and sometimes Jedi Knights may give off
the same signal making an ignorant immortal believe that the Jedi is an immortal.
