Almar Varangi Ferd was a male Human criminal who operated as a pirate captain during the Galactic Civil War.


Ferd was a colossal man, tall and muscular, who would often wear bounty hunter attire with the Mo'ork skull, his coat of arms, on his handles and chest. He wore a colonel's cap from the Imperial Army and a BlasTech 8000 heavy blaster.

His two Gamorrean bodyguards never left his side, and he regularly used his position to abuse others, which prevented his numerous crew as well as the citizens of Providence to truly like him.

Colonel Viyenah of the Imperial Intelligence suspected him to be of Corellian birth and to have been part of the Imperial Navy, where he would have acquired his leadership qualities. After his retirement, he became a cargo pilot before becoming a dreadful pirate, with a crew mainly composed of renegade soldiers, traitors and brutish men.

Ferd was sentenced to death on more than twenty planets, and had bounties on his head all over the galaxy, since he dedicated his operations to merchant ship attacks and planetary facilities assaults. He also practiced slavery, and always killed useless prisoners.

He nourished a feud with Han Solo ever since Solo caused him to have a cargo loss.

Personality and traitsEdit

Ferd was brutal and impulsive, readily tyrannical and dominating. Viyenah compared him to a dictator.

This attitude led his crew to both show him admiration and fear him at the same time, as he didn't hesitate to execute those who broke his rule.

Vulgar and repulsive, he was nonetheless smart and was capable, able to deploy intelligence and cunning in perilous situations. He was also an exceptional pilot.

Behind the scenesEdit

Almar Varangi Ferd was created by Jean-Michel Ringuet for the ambiguously canon roleplaying help "Providence" which appeared in the French magazine Avalon 1. He was illustrated by Jean-Marc Emy.
