Character Assessment:
"I warn you, do not be fooled by Aalim Lir. He is not everything he appears to be. He may try and pass himself off as civilised and rational but that man wears a mask. And not on his face. He want's you to think he is respectable, a businessman, someone you'd go to for help. Don't ever make that mistake. No matter how hard he tries to deny it, that man is a monster. Tusken blood runs through his veins. Once an animal, always an animal."
-Conversation overheard in Durga's Court.

Personal History:

Part 1: "The desert is a harsh mother."

Aalim's parents arrived on Tatooine in 18BBY with their 5 year old son. They had fled their home in the core systems when the new Emperor Palpatine began his Jedi Purge. Whilst neither of them were particularly strong force users they still feared the wrath of the new Emperor. They felt that their Miraluka heritage and abilities would make them a target in this new age and so sought refuge away from the Empire's influence, a place they could raise their son in safety and anonymity.

Aalim's parents escaped the slaughter of their species which followed the rise of Emperor Palpatine as they had feared. However a cruel twist of fate saw them killed when a Tusken raiding party attacked their homestead.The young Aalim was spared the same fate as his parents by the intervention of the Tusken's Shaman. Claiming to have had visions of a child "without eyes but who still sees", the Shaman took the young Aalim under his protection. Raised as any other Tusken child, or uli-ah, he became one of the tribe and when old enough protégé to the Shaman.

Aalim completed his blood rites at the age of 15 to take his place as a man, however he did not take a wife at this time as was tradition. Even with the protection and blessings of the Shaman, Aalim was viewed with suspicion by many members of the tribe and none would see their daughter bonded with a man without sight, or who saw the spirit world. Despite his position on the periphery of the tribe he was a constant presence in raiding parties and tribe life. Aware of his own unusual position he pushed himself harder than most to compete. His skill with a gaderffii was nearly second to none, despite his lack of "sight" as the Tuskens understood.

The "blind seer" as Aalim became known amongst the tribe remained a valued, if somewhat distant member of the tribe for some years. It was not until a new chieftain rose who had always distrusted Aalim that he was eventually forced into exile. A dispute between the Chieftain and the Shaman came to blows over the direction the tribe should take. Aalim stepped in to defend his now ageing adoptive father. Whilst he fought well he was no match for the Chief. However the chief could not kill Aalim for fear of the gods wrath, so instead he stripped the mask from Aalim's face and had his bantha killed. Now stripped of all it meant to be a Tusken Aalim was exiled and sent to wander the desert alone.

Part 2: A desert of stars

Aalim survived five days wandering the desert before fate would play her hand again. After fighting off the feeling of being followed for two days Aalim took shelter in the Jundland Wastes. Inhospitable as it is, the rocky wastes were infinitely more inviting than the Dune Sea. Once there his purser at last revealed itself. A juvenile krayt dragon had been stalking him for the better part of two days, and chose the close confines of the canyon as the spot to make the kill. The krayt was young and inexperienced, but Aalim was fatiuged from his desert crossing. After a drawn out battle Aalim managed to drive his gaffi stick deep into the beasts sinus cavity, stopping it dead.

Wounded and exhausted Aalim wrenched his gaffi stick from the body of the krayt dragon and broke off one of it's teeth as a small trophy. Almost resigned to his fate he set off wandering again, ready to die alone and forgotten in the desert. However the krayt was not the only hunter in the canyon that day. A small band of slavers had been flying overhead and seen his battle with the krayt. Never willing to miss an opportunity it wasn't long before the exhausted Aalim was laying stunned and bound within the slavers' cargo hold.

He would come to learn that his captors were slavers of the Black Descent, a small band of outlaws working primarily within Hutt space. Furthermore there was growing conflict within the Black Descent over leadership and direction. The crew's emotions and arguments were clear even to Aalim bound in the hold. During his short journey to who knows where Aalim's main contact with the crew was with a Chistori by the name of Tyr. Impressed by the blind Tusken Tyr conversed with Aalim often during their journey. Through broken Huttese the pair developed, not so much mutual respect, but a level of understanding.

When mutiny erupted amongst the crew Tyr was overseeing the slave pens in the cargo hold. Eager to settle old scores a number of the crew had planned to ambush and overpower the Chistori who hadn't been swayed by their arguments. Using his force sight Aalim was able to see the ambush a fraction earlier and shouted a warning to the one man who had shown him any kindness on the voyage. Alerted to the attack Tyr overpowered his attacks, smashing their skulls against the slave pens. Knowing he was rapidly running out of allies Tyr agreed to grant Aalim his freedom for assistance in quelling the mutiny. Together the Chistori and the blind Tusken stalked the halls of the ship restoring "order" with brutal efficiency, Tyr with his own claws and Aalim with his gaderffii.

When the dust had settled only a handful of the crew remained and the captain was dead. Despite this Tyr honoured his side of the agreement and granted Aalim his freedom. With nowhere else to go Aalim joined the remaining members of the Black Descent and began a new life amongst the stars.

Part 3: Collecting Debts
In his early years amongst the stars Aalim's fortunes waxed and waned like the moons over Yavin. Never sure of where the next pay check would come from, or for how long they'd be able to keep the money coming in, Aalim and the Black Descent earned a reputation. It was said they would sell their own grandparents to the Hutts if it would make them enough money. It wasn't until nearly 10ABY that Aalim showed just how true this was.

However unstable Aalim's early career was, after a simple job in 6ABY it would take a dramatic turn. Slowly at first but with growing momentum the Black Descent extended its operations and soon the credits, and the slavers came pouring in. Through events varied and many Aalim began to climb his way up the ladder within the outer rim, gaining the interest of various parties. It did not take long before the Black Descent established itself as a significant player not only in slavery but with other less legal occupations within the outer rim such as arms dealing.

With both money and reputation Aalim became one of the more influential men in Hutt space. In accordance with his new found wealth and success he attempted to present himself as an honest businessman, after all slavery wasn't technically illegal in the areas he operated. Despite his best efforts though it proved difficult to keep his hands clean whilst constantly doing dirty work. In addition to this there were many who disliked dealing with what they saw as "a savage in a suit".

Durga the Hutt was not among those people. The two developed a working relationship in the closing days of the first decade since the destruction of the death star. Often the exact details of their relationship were hidden from the galaxy at large but both profited greatly from their deals. Eager to maintain his own new found power Aalim ensured that he kept the emerging kingpin happy and well supplied with the best slaves available.

In 10ABY when Durga asked for a new delivery of slaves for the Sarlac Pit, a gladiatorial enterprise on Nal Hutta to entertain potential new clients, Aalim cemented his reputation for ruthlessness. Personally leading the Black Descent to Tatooine, Aalim and his men fell upon the Sandpeople. One tribe in particular was the target of Aalim’s attentions. In a single night the entirety of the tribe that had raised and then exiled the Miraluka was either captured or killed.

Reports say Aalim howled with glee as the Chieftain who had killed his father and exiled him was torn apart in Durga’s gladiator pits. Even those who had shown him kindness in their own way were not spared. Those of the tribe who could not fight where sold to the spice mines of Kessel. Revenge had been a long time coming but it arrived it would enter the legends of the Tuskens.


Part 4: Lord of Crime
By 12ABY Aalim had well and truly secured his place at Durga’s right hand. Both had excessive ambitions and the drive to achieve great, perhaps terrible, things. Unofficially recognised as Durga’s Majordomo the Miraluka was adopted into a new family, taking the Besadii name as his own. With such a clear sign of approval Aalim sat in on the Hutt Council, not as a direct member, but holding significant influence.

His own businesses thrived but he had now entered the dangerous world of Hutt politics, one where he would have to exercise extreme caution. In particular Durga had a reputation for the manner in which he dealt with subordinates that failed him. Despite this Aalim worked his way into a number of new business ventures at the same time. Both directly and indirectly Durga had secured the companies of Xizor Transport Systems as well as the Ccalras Corporation. Eager to maintain distance but still exert his control Durga insured the boards of both companies had enough of his own men within them to keep them loyal.

Aalim took to this role with great enthusiasm, seeing the chance not just to appease Durga, but also to further his own image as a legitimate businessman. It also gave him a great opportunity to launder the money he gained through slavery. In this manner he could extend his own influence in those places were slavery was looked down upon.

To be concluded…
