Using UNE I got the following for the ships crew: Defective chieftain, acquire discretion. I combine this with the steamed sobriety portent to get a mysterious smuggler who used to lead a smuggling ring? but left, and tried to keep his whereabouts hidden.
In addition, from The Oracle from the solo plays, the following is known:
Luca used to work as a flight admiral for one of those big corporations like your employers. They used to work only with light freighters. They didn’t have the most competitive prices or the lowest running costs, but they could deliver last minute requests at the speed and efficiency the client wanted.
Luca was quite good at it, and they had him planning the routes for the entire sector.
Then Lon Pavond, took over the company from his father and switched direction. Some new ruthless traders were hired to pilot the freighters, with questionable reputation. He fired anyone of the old crew that objected. He couldn’t fire Luca due to his connections and high severance cost, so he cast him aside. Luca was demoted from planning to cargo runs.
Now, there were some runs that were weird. Off sector planets, shady contacts, and there were rumors... Then there was this particular run, which was really strange. Something was off. The proper protocol numbers did not much. 'Accounting error' they told him. Once in hyperspace, he went to check the cargo."
Two crates of fruit, as per the 'protocol', and among them, hidden, several thermal detonators. The system he was to deliver them, was deep in Imperial space. He was about to be framed. Maybe even the Imperials were in on it. Luca ran to the cockpit and cut short his hyperspace trip, performing an emergency exit in realspace. In the middle of nowhere. From then on, he managed to scrounge some cash from selling the detonators in the black market, and change the ship's Transponder code and vanish in the outer rim.
