Dawn of Defiance: Buffalo NY
Bariss is 6 feet tall and a young adult of 15 years of age, with light green skin, and also the Duros’ natural baldness and red eyes with a permanent look of distrust. He wears common clothing with a DT-12 heavy blaster pistol strapped on his side, grenades in his belt pockets, and a stovepipe hat that fits snuggly down to his brow. While he might be easily mistaken for a random alien off the street with a questionable sense of fashion, Bariss is actually an Ace Pilot.

Born on the planet Duro, Bariss was raised by a loving although a bit odd family, and was trained to have more options than just being a pilot. However, his home life was disturbed when some of his family members, being politicians, noticed a change in the play-out with things going towards more human relations and less alien in more than just the visual fields. Being Duros, Bariss’ family decided to make Bariss a pilot, they knew that Bariss had a knack for flying, it’s in his blood. That coupled with not knowing what may happen, Bariss’ father apprenticed Bariss several years before Bariss’ home training was complete, onto the Banshee, under Cpt. Sirona O’Keefe an old “friend”. Bariss even with his youth’s mentality realized that he was being sent away from his family for his safety. He has never forgotten the measures that his family undertook to make sure of that. That he was prepared to take care of himself, and for him to not be limited to a planet, which his family originally had visions of him doing. Bariss made up his mind that if the day came he would use his abilities, and perhaps his own ship, to rescue his family from the same threat that they made sure he would be ready against.
After two and a half years of working for O’Keefe Bariss has a great pilot’s respect for his captain and her main political associate, Senator Organa. He knows that they are against the elements that threaten his family. Bariss is loyal to his family, his captain, and to Senator Organa, and will work efficiently towards their goals.
Recently Bariss is feeling more alone in that he is no longer with his family or Cpt. O’Keefe. Even with Keyln telling Tor more than once that group Bariss finds himself in is now a family, Bariss is not sure if he feels a family connection with the others. Though he does feel a strong tie between them and himself, he is uncertain about adding others to his family. It didn’t help that Cpt. O’Keefe left without a word, Bariss has a feeling of being thrown away like a useless tool, almost as if Cpt. O’Keefe left him on purpose. As a side effect Bariss takes his piloting as very important.
Due to his working with O’Keefe, Bariss has a great knowledge for military tactics of practically every sort. The bulk if not all of Bariss’ actions are tactically oriented and are at least meant to be efficient for the goal at hand/in the future.
1. He loved flying with Fullua, misses Inris while he’s at the core and he feels especially bad about Mezerel. He doesn’t care for piloting droids. Bariss has also recently warmed up to the idea of hats, especially if the hat once belonged to an Imperial agent or the imfamous Cad Bane.
2. He hates anyone who endangers those precious to him, i.e. Empire (and mostly everyone in it). Now that Platt is safe from Bu’cho and the rest of his family from Cad Bane and since Inquisitor Draco will be dealt with by the rest of the group Bariss is cruising. Or at least he was, more and more Bariss’ hatred comes out with ease and he has no control. The recent near shoot-out with Shalia to get to Baldr has Bariss wondering what is becoming of himself.
He also hates it when a rival pilot is killed by someone other than him.
3. He was working with the group because O’Keefe believed it a good idea, she has her many reasons, and Bariss knows several of them will be helpful if he needs to make sure of his abilities to rescue his family.
Recently Bariss has found himself swept up in the resistance camp of Senator Organa, he knows that the only way to continue is forward with the others, with people he more and more sees as a banded together family.
