From early life to Adult life and service in the Empire
Pre Galactic Empire
Teresa was born on a now long gone luxury space station to freighter parents Jack and Xhex Manalishi. She grew up helping her parents and their crew. Her companion was Chris Rowley the young son of a couple that worked with her parents. Soon friendship blossomed to love. On Teresa's 18th birthday Chris and Teresa married. A year later their son Christopher was born. Times were good and they continued working with their parents traveling from one end of the galaxy to the other moving supplies for those that hired the small family run group.
Death & Dark Times
Shortly before her son's second birthday, tragedy struck. Pirates attacking the ship solely for its cargo killed nearly all on board during the assault including Teresa's parents, husband, and young son. During the assault Teresa was critically wounded when a section of the ship had fallen on her, creating a jagged cut going from her shoulder to her waist almost crushing her. A patrolling Imperial ship seeing the wreck sent troopers to evaluate the situation and seek out potential survivors where they found Teresa on the edge of death. After several long painful months of healing and frustrating treatments, Teresa finally was medically cleared to leave the medical platform she had spent much time reflecting on the tragedy. She would always bear a reminder of the assault in the form of a long scar running down her right side. Upon her release from the platform, Teresa wandered around the galaxy unsure of what to do, taking what jobs she could get, drowning her paychecks away in cantinas around the galaxy. Quick to temper when drunk, after one fight and arrest the Imperial Judge having known her parents and reflective on her past have her the choice of a prison colony or military service. She chose the latter knowing full well it was the only way to avenge her family and repay those that saved her life.
Imperial Star Destroyer
At 23 Teresa applied to the Academy of the Empire and upon graduation joined the Imperial Navy. During her first year, she was falsely accused of a crime and almost killed. She was rescued and cleared with the help of her commander at the time and fellow fleet pilots. Earning him and the fleet her undying loyalty.
Shortly after she was transferred to the 2nd fleet where she was determined to start fresh and make a new life for herself. With careful planning and purchasing, she started buying properties, ships, stations and NPC's to resell. Her past she never mentions, No one knows from where she comes nor does she say. When asked she rarely replies if she does it's only to say it's the past and best forgotten.
Love, Betrayal & Death
Teresa finally meets a young Kiffer with a troubled past during a trade deal and the two becomes friends sharing their dark troubled pasts. As their friendship grew they fell in love and after a couple of years decided to openly become a couple and talked of marriage. But it was not to be, Ben changed groups to allow them to marry. The night of their announcement Ben was betrayed by a traitor in his new fraction and murdered before Teresa and Ben's friends even offer to pay for his freedom. Teresa still carries the last message Ben managed to send her before his death. Benares Kurogane's last message he managed to get to her before he was killed. Year 16 Day 326, 19:36 This will be the last time you will receive a message from me. I don't know why but someone put up a private bounty on me.. the person who pick it up had a friend in Hapes. I was assign a ship and they were waiting for me on board.. I will not survive the night.. I'm sorry. I wish I could stay with you but faith had other plans.. remember that I love you even in the after life.. my last wish for you is that you be happy.. I hope someone can love you and stay by you're side where I could not..
After his death she received word about those that killed him from one of his friends who set out to find Ben's murders. Teresa,I have some good news and some bad news. Good news is that I now know who set Ben up and why. Bad news is, we can't get to them. The girl that set him up in Hapes is named Eve Reighner . She is deceased. Apparently Hapes wasn't too thrilled with how she set up Ben so they arrested and executed her. The guy who paid her to do it, was named Torak Kissell. He was a member of Total Outer Rim. Before she died, Eve implicated him as the one who paid her off. She didn't know why. Torak is also now deceased as he committed suicide to escape meeting his deserved fate from the bounty placed on him for Ben's murder.

Yet they soon were to learn that one was there not in support but there to arrest Jerex, on part for their marriage and for offering Teresa advice on setting up her new company. Teresa heard nothing from Jerex for months after his arrest, all her inquires when unanswered. Finally Jerex contacted Teresa letting her know he had been released, but their relationship was deeply strained by the Empire's new restrictions and by the damage the arrest had done.

Makino and one of their kits
On one of the many trips Teresa made to various Cantinas after the tragedy of her family's demise, she came across a young Togorian. Meeting by chance at one of the Cantinas long forgotten somewhere in the outer rim. The Togorian in question went by the name of Matsu Makino, in Basic read Makino Matsu. Matsu, young and carefree at the time instantly interested the young Teresa who herself was reckless and looking for fun. The two immediately hit it off well and after many rounds of drinks, found themselves developing a budding friendship that left an impression on the young Teresa. Too soon, the time came when they went separate ways, leaving Teresa to wondering if she would ever see the young Togorian again.
As the years passed, Teresa still found herself wondering what had happened to Makino, never knowing that fate had plans that would have the two meeting again, this time as more mature adults still in their youth, but grounded more with life's harsh lessons.
In Y18, Makin Matsu, now having ascended to the Leader of the family clan and obtaining the title of Lord, gathered together with business leaders about his plans for bringing a Royal Horse Derby Association (R-HDA) to the public. One of the recipients of such invite was Teresa Rowley. Over talks of the derby, the two decided to renew their friendship over dinner and drinks. This soon grew into a daily occurrence as the two grew closer together, forming something much more than simple friendship. It grew more apparent between the two that their relationship had grown from simple friendship to something much more intimate, with stolen glances and midnight rendezvous happening almost daily, the two decided to announce their engagement. They were married a week later, rushing the proceedings forgoing a proper wedding for a small private ceremony. Unfortunately, the marriage did not last as rumors of infidelity spread. Still, throughout the rumors and hardship of divorce, the two remained close friends and business partners in several businesses, including the EE Late Night Credit Fight Auction. During their divorce, both often found themselves in each other's company, even behind closed doors where acts remain sealed. Though both sought partners elsewhere, they soon realized that they still loved each other deeply, often staying over and spending the days together longing to be a family again. They planned their marriage, this time strengthened by the resolve they had in knowing that they could not find happiness elsewhere, they became inseparable a force to be reckoned with. During their marriage they were blessed with several children, the first daughter from their first marriage was Mishka Sorokin who they adopted thinking they could not have children themselves. Shortly before their marriage ended, Teresa had genetic therapy and the two attempted to have children on their own but was told it was a failure, it's assumed this was part of the hardship that lead to their split.
During their divorce however, a miracle happened as the doctors later confirmed the treatment did in fact work and Teresa was found to be pregnant with not one but six healthy kits.
Just a few days after Teresa and Matsu's marriage, Jerex returned. He left the Empire and Teresa made his XO of Express Enterprises and Drearian Defense Conglomerate, the position she had promised him before he disappeared. Jerex set about organizing and bringing the companies into more uniformed and efficiant operations. He became a major force in the companies and a strong figurehead at the helm beside his partner and former wife. Jerex left the group when the companies changed hands.
