About Gath of Akiton
Big, shambling, and slack-jawed, with a oversized, tusked lower jaw broader than its cranium, the four armed shobhad does not give a first impression of intelligence. Its armor, surmounted by a fiber-rope harness from which hangs a large openly displayed knife, a huge spiked club, and the long rifle slung on its back, coupled with its size, do provide a a definite impression of menace.
When it opens its mouth to speak, it confirms the absence of great intelligence, but belies the impression of menace. Its speech is slow, deep and softly gentle. "I'm Gath. Where's your favorite place?"

Alcagath was a clan leader on Akiton. He was renowned as a warrior, but not infallible. A raid against a rival clan went disastrously. The clan was shattered. Hunted by the rival clan, he managed to get his mate and progeny off Akiton thanks to a friend who was an off world trader. The trader set the family up on Absalom station where for years Alcagath has pondered his return to Akiton and revenge, an unlikely prospect given the shobhad's paltry resources.
Alcagath is proud of his one surviving daughter and two of his sons. And then there is Gath. From a family, a clan or warriors, Gath is a gentle soul that has shown little talent for the martial arts, or even useful technical skills. From his youth, he's heard a voice that urges him to travel the galaxy, but he's chained to Absalom station by his family, and paltry resources.
Gath works as a laborer in a warehouse belonging to Fattail, the ysoki merchant that transported the family off Akiton. The warehouse is officially the Trinary Medical Depot. Fattail deals in a variety of medicinals and dietary supplements. Mostly, nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
In the evenings Gath can be found near Gateway Niche. A small collection of eclectic businesses and eateries on the edge of the market. The shobhad engages passersby in conversation, whether to question them about their travels or to encourage someone who seems a little depressed.
Gath's rifle is an heirloom from his grandsire. Someday he hopes to earn the sword his grandfather has promised him, if he becomes a worthy warrior.
