Rinyn Nolu, more commonly called Rinyn, is one of the founding members of the Rebellion on Onderon, alongside Rar Jar Sphinx and Kilix Gui'n Ranuen. She is also one of the youngest active members of the Rebellion, alongside Kaiden. Rinyn is one of two Force Sensitive characters in the Onderon Rebellion, and is currently being taught the ways of the force by Kilix. When out on missions, Rinyn is commonly on the front lines, as she is a soldier who specializes in the Commando field and is training to be a Jedi Guardian. She has a companion in the R5-Series Astromech droid R5-DI4, also known as Red Diamonds.

History Edit

Rinyn's earliest memories involve being alone. No sign of any parents, or anyone to take care of her - Rinyn was forced to learn how to survive in the wilds all on her lonesome just to keep on living. Her sensitivity to the Force gave her an advantage that she didn't even realize she had - but even then it wasn't enough to keep her completely out of trouble, and one day she got in over her head, getting badly injured and laying in the wilds waiting to die. She was found and rescued by a Mon Calamari named Evree Talol, who treated her wounds and nursed her back to health.

Upon discovering that Rinyn had no family or friends to speak of, Evree took her in and raised her like her own daughter, teaching her what Rinyn couldn't learn without help - about civilizations, about using firearms, about the stars and the ships and life within the walls of Iziz. Evree was a talented mechanic, and while she didn't teach Rinyn much about making ships she did teach her about flying them, to the point that Rinyn finds it relatively easy to fly most craft, even if she's never been in them before; although it's not a skill she has much confidence in.

But peaceful lives are not made to last, and one day the Empire came looking for Evree. They'd taken an interest in her skill with building ships, and had decided to recruit her for her abilities - or so Rinyn says. Her memories of the day are foggy at best, and all she remembers of it is that her mother was taken away by the Empire. Rinyn clings to the hope that she's still alive, even if it is in the Empire's clutches, and from that day forward she was determined to take as much from the Empire as they took from her.

It was while she was training to grow stronger that she encountered Kilix and Rar Jar. Kilix reached out to her, informing her that she was a Force sensitive and that he could help her learn to control these powers in order to help her; while Rar Jar, impressed with her athletic abilities and skills, offered her a place to live in exchange for joining their fledgling rebellion. With nowhere to go and no responsibilities to uphold, and a burning desire to fight the Empire, Rinyn decided to join up with them, learning from Kilix and fighting alongside him and Rar Jar. After a few months with them, they decided to take a mission involving stealing a datapad from an Imperial Official in Iziz...

Personality Edit

Rinyn is cheerful, somewhat impatient, and often full of energy and stupid ideas. In other words, she has the mentality of a child. She is, however, oddly mature in social situations and very insightful at seemingly random times. Rinyn cares deeply about the people around her, putting their safety and well being before her own. She wants nothing more than to help the people around her with everything she's got, but deep down she has crippling self worth issues and believes that she's not worth anything and that everyone else is more important than she is. Rinyn hides these issues behind her cheery disposition and her tendency to rush headlong into situations, but she has demonstrated a surprising amount of insight as to when she needs to dial back the crazy and buckle down for a serious situation. It's not that Rinyn's not smart, it's simply that she hasn't been educated - meaning that while she lacks a formal education she's quick to pick up on details and very eager to learn.

Deep down, Rinyn has a huge fear of losing those she cares about and failing to protect them. This, along with her own self worth issues, may lead to problems in the future, considering her Force sensitivity...
