The Human Katiz Xemir settled on a remote colony planet and called it home. However, after Xemir refused to relocate offworld to make way for a mining facility on the planet, the Galactic Empire killed his family. That caused Xemir to hire himself out as a mercenary against Imperial targets.
Behind the scenes
Katiz Xemir's homeworld was first mentioned in "Preparing for War," a roleplaying adventure idea from 1998's The Far Orbit Project, by Timothy S. O'Brien. The book was a supplement to West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.
