A female individual owned a traveling air rodeo, which at some point featured trained thrantas, a species of large, winged creatures. Some time while she owned the rodeo and was married to her husband, the owner was kidnapped by an animal rights group who wanted to stop traveling air rodeos. The group did so in an attempt to show the owner how the thrantas felt during transport when they lacked the sunlight necessary for photosynthesis.
Biography[edit | edit source]
A female individual was the owner of a traveling air rodeo that featured trained thrantas, a non-sentient species of large, flying creatures. At some point in her life, she and a man were married. Some time after she was married, an animal rights group kidnapped the owner with the intent of starving her for a week to show her how hungry the thrantas became during transportation when they were deprived of the sunlight necessary for photosynthesis. The group did not ask for a ransom due to their goal being to stop the operation of traveling air rodeos.
After the owner was captured, a known group of individuals in the area were asked to rescue her. The owner's husband was willing to pay the group for their efforts in rescuing his wife.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The air rodeo owner first appeared as part of an adventure idea in "Rodeo Thranta", an article written by Jeff Quick as part of the Creature Feature series of articles for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game that was published on Wizards of the Coast's website. The article was released on December 12, 2002, with the adventure ideas and characters being usable by gamemasters at any time after thrantas were first used in air rodeos, which happened before the destruction of the thrantas' home planet, Alderaan. The player characters had the option of rescuing her with or without her husband paying them.
