Vengeful Pirate and Music Enthusiast
Ssorku is a former well-known mercenary and amatuer musician turned pirate. After a job went bad on him around the Nessem shipyards about 10 years ago, he was captured by the Empire and shipped off to the spice mines of Kessel, although no official charges were ever filed.
A few years ago, Ssorku escaped from Kessel, missing an eye and with a grimmer outlook on life. Aboard his modified Citadel-Class Light Freighter, The Broken Chord along with a pair of Z-95 Headhunters carried by the ’Chord’s docking claws, Ssorku and his crew have become a terror of the space lanes. His success has left many baffled or suspicious; Ssorku and his crew seem to be in the right place at the right time to spring their ambushes, and some are starting to wonder how.
Ssorku has an obsession with finding an Imperial Agent he claims was responsible for sending him to Kessel. The name he gives for this agent, Sidika Serad, seems to belong to another former mercenary who disappeared more than a decade ago. Ssorku spends his ill-gotten gains with Infochants and spies to try to find where his nemesis is so he can exact his bloody revenge. Nothing else matters to him. Nothing, except, his beloved Jatz music and his own Kloo Horn, and the few fleeting moments he allows himself to set aside his vendetta and “jam”.
