Erl Wyvron

Gender/Species: Male Human
Homeworld: Ord Brokell
Class/Level: Noble 7 / Solder 3
Role: Governor of Ord Brokell

Erl Wyvron is a legend in the Republic Army. He was a general in the Great Sith War, fighting in the Outer Rim Territories against the combined hordes of the Sith and Krath. The war cost him dearly – he lost his left leg, arm and eye in his final battle, and he saw many of his troops slaughtered by the merciless Sith. He spent much of the war fighting alongside Jedi and came to have a good deal of respect for them, even if he felt their philosophy was overly simplistic and naïve.

Wyvron retired to Ord Brokell, where he became the world’s governor. Since then a cult of personality has grown up around the governor. His old vanguard, the Roughnecks, emigrated to the planet and re-formed as the planet’s civilian militia. Wyvron helped lead a spirited defense of Ord Brokell during the opening days of the Mandalorian Wars, but was ultimately convinced to retreat to Taris. There he reformed the Roughnecks as a volunteer militia opposed to the Mandalorians.

Today, Wyvron is among those who believe no ground should be yielded to the Mandalorians. He’s frustrated by the Jedi Order’s refusal to join in the fight, and has had more than one heated arguments with old Jedi friends from the Great Sith War about this stance.

Wyvron has chosen not to hide his cybernetics; he wears them as a badge of honor reflecting his sacrifices in the Great Sith War. The cybernetics gleam with an artificial silver skin that covers the exoskeleton, motors and wires beneath. His cybernetic eye (which confers the benefits of a helmet package) glows faintly blue, matching the shade of his surviving human eye.

While a decent shot, Wyvron’s success on the battlefield came from his exceptional knowledge of tactics and his superior leadership skills. He isn’t afraid to fight on the front lines with his men, shouting commands and bolstering his troops’ morale as needed, but he always relies on his men to secure a target or defeat an enemy. This supreme confidence in his followers has earned him the admiration and respect of his men, and is a major reason why the Rough Riders reformed as a militia group after his retirement.
