Avelyn, known as Avelyn ca Vella, is a Zeltron from Zeltros and the Guildmistress of the Cantrell Conglomerate. Previously, she was a bartender and waitress at the Queen's Quarry casino in the city of Lorien on Ord Cantrell.
There isn't much information on Avelyn ca Vella's past except that she was born on Zeltros itself. Her parents were no one notable -- a simple bar wench and a casino manager. She popped up on employment records at the age of sixteen, waitressing at one of the many restaurants on what offworlders describe as the party planet. Sometime later, the young Zeltron left her homeworld and worked amongst the stars on passenger liners before settling in as a bartender and waitress at the Queen's Quarry casino on Ord Cantrell. Security records indicate an altercation at the casino, leaving the manager and several of his personal security dead, with the system governor Artemis de Chatillon, finding proof of embezzlement and extortion, along with mistreatment of employees. Shortly after the incident, Avelyn joined Fairwind Exotics as an Intern and served as a consultant for Fairwind Exotics Auctions. In order to more easily fit in with society, de Chatillon gave Avelyn the surname ca Vella. In a very short time, she impressed her employer with her trading prowess and knack for finding deals to the extent that de Chatillon saw no other option but to promote her to Guildmistress. Once she took over, profits immediately started to rise exponentially.
In a short amount of time, Fairwind skyrocketed on the galactic scene to the point that Avelyn needed to start hiring more staff. The Zeltron looked to Tattysail Thyr, a pilot with Corellian Transport Services, to fly only for her. The eager pilot had found herself a bit bored with the New Republic and found this new opportunity interesting, quickly accepting. Avelyn saw opportunity with Thyr and promoted her to Assistant Director of the company as a test before moving her to an even more grandiose position -- Chief Operations Officer of Cantrell Institute. Rumors that Avelyn had purchased both companies gained steam mid-way through Year 20 - but over time, these were proven false. Instead, the Zeltron started a new umbrella corporation with Cantrell Consulting and transferred much of what she had been doing in Fairwind to the new company.
In late Year 20 and early Year 21, the Conglomerate expanded even further with the founding of two more companies - Fath Industries and Orbital Research and Design. To ease oversight of her businesses, Avelyn appointed Mercedes Morgan as the CEO of Cantrell Consulting and Zoe di Vigne as the CEO of Fath Industries. Unfortunately in mid year 21, it was determined that Fath Industries was no longer needed in its current form. So, the company was dissolved and di Vigne was moved to the role of Chief Operations Officer of the Cantrell Conglomerate, which allowed her to assist the Guildmistress run the daily operations of the companies. This left a void in the Conglomerate, but another company wasn't what she had planned. This time, she founded the Cantrell Institute of the Arts based on Leafar with a satellite campus on Ord Cantrell.
In Year 22, Fath Industries dissolved and then was reformed a few months later from Machinehead, which Mercedes Morgan inherited from her friend Cleo Kolasha upon her retirement. The company was transferred to Zoe di Vigne after Mercy's death and then sold to Avelyn in late Year 22.
Year 22 was quite the struggle for Avelyn, with the death of her wife Mercy and the divorce from her wife Zoe. The year was filled with personal issues that sent the Zeltron into therapy, with things finally starting to improve a few months into Year 23.
- Beskar Armor Set: Avelyn owns an extremely rare set of Beskar armor. It's complete with the armor, helmet, jetpack, and belt. It is not known how she acquired such a rare armor set, but she was first seen in it in early Year 23. It has been converted to her preferred color and style -- pink.
- CR-92 Pink Devil: The CR-92 is one of Avelyn's favorite ships, having wanted one since she heard rumors of it as a small child.
- Acclamator Temptress of Tortuga: The Temptress serves as the flagship of her Conglomerate.

Avelyn is comparatively short for a Zeltron, but this is not due to physical feebleness. Her figure is fit and toned, what some have described as "slight but tight". Her hair is a pale blue tone that resembles the sky, which she keeps in many different styles, often out of the way so as not to become a nuisance, with darker blue eyes that are closer to the hue of the sea. Her gaze is said to be both cautious and welcoming.
Her ears are decorated with multiple piercings and a single stud in her left nostril adds a certain exotic yet modest flair to her look. Her skin color is a delicate pink, like a blossom, which becomes visibly richer when her mood becomes fouler. A tattoo dedicated to her late wife embellishes her robust hip.
