Governor of Sevarcos X
Governor of Ferxani Beta
Carl Warrington was born and raised in a middle class family on Corellia and as soon as he learned to fly he left home to see what adventures awaited him as a freelance trader.
He spent many years as a freelancer and was heavily involved in galactic trade. He started by trading low value fighter craft and vehicles and slowly worked his way up to larger and rarer craft. One year into his trading career he was betrayed by a business associate and lost all of his slowly acquired fortune.
Left only with two cloakshape/H fighters he was forced to rebuild. While he continued to trade in fighters and vehicles he expanded the offerings of his store to include hidden system coordinates and stocks. Through the new focus of his business he was able to regain his lost fortune.
He competed in the second Kessel Run with Jeb`el Ras and came in second place. The winnings from this race was a YT-510 freighter, the Rumors of War, which Carl still owns and uses as one of his primary transports.
After this point Carl continued his freelance trading career and amassed a small fleet along with numerous space stations and facilities.
Carl retired from trading and spent several years relaxing at his personal residence on Corellia before the thrill of making deals called him back to the galactic trading market. Upon his return, he found that the economy had changed significantly. Ships and vehicles were now being mass produced and margins were slim.
Around this time, a new system called Drup was discovered in the galactic south. Carl had been spending time as a freelance builder for a large mining faction and was in the area at the time the news of the system was made public. He rushed down to the surface of Drup II and founded a large number of cities.
The founding of the cities was partially funded by A`Zol Surek, a trading partner with whom Carl had done business previously. Carl and Zol started a production company named Warrington Surek Industrial, with which the two intended to use the newly founded cities as factory cities to produce products and small ships for the galactic south.
This venture was halted when Zol was captured by Zann, and his 51% stake in WSI was turned over to them prior to his execution. As Zol had owned a majority share of the company, Carl was left holding a non-controlling stake with the treacherous Zann Consortium as a partner. Carl was strong-armed into a deal in which he would accept 10% of the earnings of WSI while Zann controlled the company and kept the remaining 90%.
However, time would tell that even this deal was too good to be true. Zann never honored its agreement. When Carl inquired about his payment, Zann feigned interest in paying Carl only to lure him onto one of their stations to capture him. Carl and Ximaro Jix did battle on The Anchorage in the Vaxal system, and Carl overpowered his opponent, defeating him and escaping the trap.
The cities on Drup II were never sold throughout this fiasco, and Carl held them as a wildcard for future revenge against Zann. In Year 19, Carl enlisted the help of his friend and fellow pirate, Argon Nightwish, and together the pair snuck into the Drup system with Bulk Freighters laden with building materials and sick Ugnaught refugees. They spent several days building hundreds of hotels and other facilities in which the syphilitic Ugnaughts could live. This act of generosity was strongly opposed by Zann agents as the hotels would saturate the market and dramatically reduce the potential for Zann-owned hotels to earn income on the planet. Carl and Argon were able to outsmart their Zann opponents and all of the facilities were successfully produced for the migrant Ugnaughts. The story of this revenge has been reported extensively by the galactic news service in the article "A Syphilitic Situation on Drup II".
Carl was long a secret member of the Eidola Pirates, but came out publicly to complete his vision of a pirate hub for trading and business on Sevarcos X. He has since completed the project, following which, Sevarcos X became known as one of the largest pirate business hubs in the galaxy. Since then, his planetary building and construction consulting endeavors have taken off, with Carl guiding various other planetary building operations within the Sevarcos system.
In Year 20, Carl embarked on a secret mission to solidify Eidola's control of the moon of Ferxani Beta in the Polith system. The Galactic Empire controls the Polith system with the famous bacta production center - Thyferra - at the center of the system's economy. Carl established a pirate training academy, military base, and significant defenses at this valuable forward base for Eidola raids on Imperial bacta shipments. It is rumored that Imperial slaves were used in the construction of this base.
At the Seventh Uli-ah Gafsa Memorial Swap Meet, Carl joined the large number of Eidolan attendees in the festivities of the meet. It was here that he first unveiled that for years he had been distilling his own bourbon on his flagship, the Veltraa-Class Cruiser Hibridium Kestrel. He offered this beverage to numerous sentients at the meet, including one Gyra Fallon who had wandered aboard the Kestrel in search of the bourbon. Unfortunately for Gyra, the drink was quite strong and she found herself unable to find her way out. Fortunately for her, Carl's pet Draigon, "Norbert," took a personal interest in nursing her back to health. She now resides in Norbert's den on board the Kestrel. The reporting of this event can be found GNS articles "Celebrating the Seventh Swap Meet" and "Seventh Swap Swan Song."
Ships of Note
Carl's flagship is the Veltraa-class Cruiser Hibridium Kestrel, also known simply as the Kestrel. This ship's history is not fully known; however, it is suspected that Squall Chitose of the Eidola Pirates originally purchased the ship from Tycho Celchu. The Kestrel long remained in Eidola's inventory unused. It was held on Asher I until Taranjeek O`Cuinn purchased it from Eidola and was able to bring the vessel to space. Carl then purchased it from Taranjeek.
The Kestrel is known for having a full bourbon distilling, aging, and bottling operation on the first deck. Carl's bourbons are sold exclusively at the "War's End Tavern" in the lower nose of the Kestrel. The bourbon that is distilled here is galaxy-renowned and Carl has been known to gift it to friends as well as planetary authorities who need some "convincing."
Carl's capital ship of choice for missions that require speed is his personal C-3 Passenger Liner Gwaihir. Carl purchased this ship directly from the manufacturer soon after its construction in Year 16. In Year 20, he left the ship unattended near the Ryll Innovation Station R&D Station in Sevarcos as he focused his efforts on Eidola's planetary construction efforts. When he returned to the ship, he found several Jawas trying to "borrow" some of the hull plates. After a tense conversation, the Jawa Ini Kedi convinced Carl that he should view this as an opportunity. Ini offered to completely redesign the exterior of the ship if Carl would overlook the scuffs the Jawas had left on his hull plates. Carl agreed and returned to building, leaving Ini alone with his Gwaihir. Unfortunately, he had also left several bottles of his famous bourbon scattered haphazardly around the vessel. When he returned to his ship to check on the progress, he found an inebriated Jawa and his ship covered in graffiti. It seemed that Ini had found the bourbon, but being Jawa-sized, his small body was not ready for the strength of the drink. Carl was surprised to find that he rather liked the graffiti, and decided to leave it in place.
Creatures of Note
Carl is known for his love of animals and has several rooms dedicated to housing his pets on the Hibridium Kestrel. Among his many pets, Norbert the Draigon has gained a certain level of notoriety as Carl's closest companion. He came across Norbert accidentally after doing battle with several Draigons in the mountains of northwestern Yelsain in Year 18. At the time, the Great Science Feud was in full swing, and the Twilight Foundation faction that Carl had chosen to join needed Draigon scales for scientific purposes. After Carl and his band emerged victorious from their battle with the Draigons, Carl stumbled across a mysterious egg lying near the battlefield. He brought the egg back to his ship and cared for it until it hatched. He was delighted to discover that the egg contained a baby Draigon. Norbert and Carl have been close friends ever since, often hunting together to hone their combat skills, and consequently, Norbert has developed into an expert combatant. Norbert has even made several appearances in the Death Hunt as one of the few creatures who regularly participates. "Norbert's Den" on the Hibridium Kestrel is a massive room designed specifically to cater to the needs and wants of a Draigon with comforts such as imitation mountainous terrain and porgs for Norbert's hunting entertainment. Norbert's Den is also where Norbert keeps some of his own prized possessions.
