STAR WARS : On The Fringe
Yerkys ne Dago
Twi'lek loan shark
ne Dago appeared on the surface to be a gracious, magnanimous individual, but this was merely a front for a very base, corrupt core. He appeared to be a vain individual, wearing expensive robes and changing the ornamental painted designs on his lekku frequently during the day. Ne Dago gesticulated extensively with his lekku, even when speaking Basic, adding flair to his speech
Yeryks ne Dago was a male Twi’lek who grew up on Ryloth where he was a slave. He managed to escape from slavery by allying himself with a group of smugglers, which he subsequently took control of. When conditions on Ryloth began to deteriorate, ne Dago left the planet, traveling to the Minos Cluster. There he established an extensive network of criminal contacts with smugglers, black-marketeers and other criminal lowlifes—so extensive was the network that few others in the galaxy could rival it. An example of its breadth was that most of the beings in debt in the entire Minos Cluster owed their money to the Twi’lek, such as the freighter captain Axtor Bridgeman. This made him one of the richest individuals in the Cluster, in addition to being one of the most powerful. Because this made him a target for many, ne Dago frequently relocated his base of operations; it was known that he worked out of Shesharile 5 for a time. He also controlled the largest city on Shesharile 6, brooking no interference in his affairs. One of ne Dago’s rivals in the Cluster was the Arcona Shlith-dan, although he feared to cross the powerful Twi’lek.
Within the Minos Cluster, ne Dago worked to pit the forces of the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic against each other, knowing the chaos caused by their conflict would aid his criminal designs.
