Sly "Hack" Icebreaker

Played by Lee

Physical Description

Andrew Garfield - the actor who plays Spider-Man in the latest movies.

Background

Sylvester was born and raised on Lothal, an outer rim planet that was suffering from a major ecomomic depression prior to the rise of the Empire. The local government welcomed the Empire with open arms, hoping that investment in the local mining industry would turn around the economy. As Lothal was a minor source of Kyber crystals, the Imperials were very interested in taking over the mining operation and did so, bringing with it strict Imperial rule and typical disregard for the planet's inhabitants and environment.

Sylvester showed a preternatural skill with computers virtually from infancy; as soon as he was allowed on the house computer system to watch holovid or play educational games, he immediately reprogrammed his room holoprojector to project Gravball games on his ceiling. His parents were quite relieved when he started school as his attention was devoted to computer studies outside of the home.

Sylvester's parents were employed first by the local mining consortium and then directly by the Empire when they assumed control of local mining operations. They saw first hand the abuses of the Empire, and when Sylvester was 10 years old, they participated in a peaceful demonstration supporting miner's rights and environmental protection. The Empire massacred the protesters, claiming publically that the protest was a front for local insurgents to attempt to sabotage the mining operations.

Sylvester was raised by his aunt and uncle, kindly but simple folk. He became bored with school and his rebellious nature was amplified by the death of his parents. He quickly exhausted local schooling, becoming more adept at computer programming than his instructors, and turned to slicing partially from boredom and partially from his rebellious nature.

Sly, as he was now calling himself, hacked into the Imperial mining operation and basically "hired" himself as a computer analyst. He spent several months hacking into the Imperial database, researching his parent's deaths. He discovered evidence of the cover-up of the massacre and framing of his parents. He knew that there was little he could do alone to take revenge on the Empire, but rumours of the rebellion's destruction of the Death Star reached Lothal. Sly used his hacking skills to find enough traces of Rebel activity on the Spinternet to deduce the location of the rebel base on Tel III and used his job earnings to hire a smuggler to take him there.

Using the callsign "Hack", Sly presented himself to the rebels on Tel III and offered them his services. C'athall Ardan was impressed enough with the young man to take him on as part of his crew.

Personality

Rebellious, curious, eager, loves a challenge. Has a dark side (no, not that Dark Side) because of his parent's deaths at the hands of the Empire, but hides it successfully under a childlike, cheerful demeanor.

Objectives

Revenge against the Empire for his parent's deaths
