Klerp & Sons was the premier junkyard on Lantilles. Klerp was Klerp and Vraal was, well the “& Sons” part; they were a father-son Verpine duo who lived to tinker and unravel the secrets of the piles of junk that were so unceremoniously dumped in their backyard. Ever since he was young, Vraal was all over tech like flies on bantha dung, and between his and his father’s smarts they were able to make quite a decent living for themselves. Klerp & Sons was a subcontractor of the Lantillian ShipWrights, often being used for rush jobs and given bonuses for their unrequested upgrades to the parts (so long as it didn’t end up setting construction back.) Life was good and the Lantillian ShipWrights grew in size and support of the Rebel Alliance right up until the Battle of Yavin, after which the company was absorbed by TaggeCo. Lantilles was sent into economic ruin with the new presence and takeover by TaggeCo, and Klerp & Sons was hard hit when their junkyard fell victim to the eminent domain clause of TaggeCo’s takeover. All of their property, equipment, and inventions were now under the sole ownership of TaggeCo due to some sneaky contract negotiation work, and Klerp and Vraal were out on their asses. With the last of their money Vraal hired a transport to take the now-ailing Klerp back to Nickel One and the rest of the Verpine, so that he might at least live out the rest of his days with the companionship of his people. In a way the loss of Klerp & Sons was liberating, now Vraal was able to get out into the universe and find his own path. The Rebel Alliance seemed like a good place to start.
After the hostile takeover by TaggeCo Klerp and Vraal had very little to their name. Vraal had been hacking around on the holonet and found a rather sizeable account owned by TaggeCo under a number of shell companies that had millions of transactions in it per day. He figured he could skim off the transactions and get him and his father “what they deserved:” enough to get him back to Nickel One and for him to get a new start in life. It only seemed fair. The only problem was that Vraal had no clue TaggeCo was laundering credits through this account with Black Sun. In stealing from TaggeCo, he stole from Black Sun. Oops.
Vraal loved his upbringing and wants so badly to go back to the way things were: junk as far as the eye could see, the smell of grease and engine plasma permeating his nostrils. If he can kick TaggeCo square in their collective nuts he would be one step closer to getting a shipyard of his own one day to retire to. Maybe he could lay a few eggs and make little Vraals of his own.
