About Faraeon Star-Jumper
Faraeon Star-Jumper - SFS #177216-701 Theme Song
Faraeon starts with ranged combat if enemies are at a distance, but he quickly closes the distance with the movement from trick attacks. If facing an opponent that may not have to be hostile, he takes a move action to flip his static arc pistol to stun mode to deal nonlethal damage.
If confronted in melee, he will continue to use his trick attack, but will use his Idaran force baton instead.
Faraeon uses his natural charm and cunning (Bluff) to get himself out of trouble or smooth things over. He'll usually stay towards the front, thinking himself a pretty capable face, but will defer to someone more expert in diplomacy (like an Envoy) if they're present.
Faraeon's skills make him most adept as a gunner, in which case he prefers the maneuverability of turret-mounted weapons. If a superior gunner expresses a desire for the turret, though, he'll do whatever is needed.
Gunnery stats: 8 ranks in Piloting, +5 Dex modifier
If the gunnery is fully stocked with other PCs, Faraeon serves as a capable and enthusiastic Chief Mate.

You will be told if this boon is important to a future scenario prior to slotting your boons. When all the boxes are checked, you can no longer earn loaned equipment while slotting this boon, as your preferred standing with this organization is expended.
