Born during the waning years of the Clone Wars on Corellia to a father who worked in a ship-building factory and a mother who worked as a translator. Valo's entire life was spent with action involved of some type. His father Raul played a minor, yet important role in the Clone Wars, building transport ships for the Republic. Valo found himslef as a young child, pouring over blueprints and learning as much as he could about schematics and mechanics; wanting to follow in his father's footsteps. He had a normal childhood, playing with his friends on the golden beaches of Corellia. But something was different about young Valo... He always wanted more, even as a young child. However, after the Clone Wars were over things changed...
It didn't happen quickly, but change eventually tore the family apart. The new Galactic Empire ordered the Shipbuilding Company to begin construction on the new experimental fleet of Star Destroyers, but at 1/8th of the pay that was made previously during the Clone Wars. Raul outright refused the Empire's "generous" offer and quit his job. Many followed and the business that had been in operation for over 250 years was taken under control and Raul was forced into slavery with hundreds of others in the mines of Kessel. Raul slaved away for the rest of his days in those mines...
But before all was lost, Raul spent his life savings and sent his wife Natt and young son Valo off on a secret transport to Tatooine. They would be safe on that planet, the perfect place for anyone to hide. However, the Empire was never far behind. After living in solitude on a farm for most of the rest of his childhood and into early adulthood, Valo thought it was time to do something with his life. He studied schematics and mechanics and practiced what he learned until he attained a decent level of skill. He got his body in shape as well, he became very strong and had a great amount of stamina. Valo became a very well rounded young man and he seemed to have things going well, until a horrific experience took place...
His mother's sudden death due to her becoming lost at night returning from a food run. She was too slow and her sight impaired in the darkness, fell into the horror of the Sarlacc. Her body being devoured and slowly digested, a proper burial never took place. Valo fell into a reclusive state and became very poor as a result on the desert planet...
After the first Death Star was destroyed, a massive recruitment campaign for the Empire was launched all across the Galaxy. Reaching Tatooine, Valo came into contact with the recruitment. Needing credits immediately and wanting adventure in the back of his mind; Valo found himself signing up to do his duty for the Galactic Empire... Even though the stories his mother told him of the awful deeds the Empire had applied to his father, Valo decided that this was his only ticket off that God-forsaken desert planet and it was a way to make some credits for the first time in years...
Years passed as Valo went into training as a Stormtrooper,call name VT427, fighting battles in the darkest swamps of Felucia all the way to his eventual destination of the forest moon of Endor. It was another day of operating the shield on a landing pad in a guardtower. Valo decided to search Imperial records for any remnants of the Torreno family when he was alone in the tower between shifts. He discovered that he had one surviving uncle, T'ano Torreno, still alive on Corellia.
It was time for his next shift the next morning, but Valo did not show up on the transport to his new post and was declared AWOL by the Empire. Valo was long gone by the morning of that day. He had shed his Stormtrooper gear, only keeping the blaster rifle and helmet as a reminder of his past. He caught a transport to Corellia under the cloak of night to find his uncle T'ano. Valo eventually found what was left of T'alo in his tiny home that was somewhat cozy for it's size... T'ano had fought alongside the Republic during the Clone Wars during an attempted invasion. He lost both legs and one arm in a massive explosion; caused by a thermal detonator rolling under a fuel tank thrown by a Droid. Valo spoke to T'ano for weeks, learning about his family's past... Each piece of information infalming him more and more against the Empire. A few years pass as Valo stays with T'alo in the day, taking care or him and learning from him. Then at night he went gambling or did some dirty work for some low-rent thugs for just enough Credits to survive a few days.
Being in poor condition, T'ano eventually passed away one day. Being the only person left in the family, he passed down two WESTAR blasters to Valo and left him enough credits to buy a ship. Valo prepared himself to take the fight to the Empire with his new YT-2400 ship named "The Event Horizon" and his new weapons... But by the time he had reached a peak in mental and physical skill; the Empire had fallen from power and Valo was left with nothing but space in front of him.
Over the next 15 years, Valo traversed the galaxy exploring, taking odd jobs, and mostly learning how to make easy credits and build his skills. Until one day, he met with a crime lord at a massive podrace event on Malastare. The Lord overheard a story of danger and bravery Valo was telling to a man he was betting against. The Lord interjected himself and pulled Valo aside. He introduced himself and Valo did the same. After a long time of speaking at a booth over drinks, he gave deemed Valo worthy and gave the whereabouts of Vaago the Hutt. He explained Vaago always needed a good bounty hunter. Valo was running low on credits and morale, so why not?
Valo accepted. With that act of shaking the Crime Lord's hand and gaining Vaago's location, Valo's life will change forever. It was time for a new and exciting chapter to begin in Valo's life... One that could lead to a life of Legend status and great riches or one that could lead to failure and maybe the ultimate price payed. Only time will tell on this adventure that now begins...
