Alright folks am back with another Character thread, this time looking at Prince Xizor the late leader of the Black Sun!
===========

Bio

"To contend with Xizor, is to lose."

―Xizor

Xizor was a Falleen Prince of House Sizhran and the leader of the powerful criminal organization Black Sun during the Galactic Civil War. Xizor was a ruthless competitor and charismatic public figure in high society with his headquarters in the city planet Coruscant. Close to the Imperial Palace, but less splendid, was Xizor's Palace: his home outside Falleen. Following the Battle of Hoth, Xizor was considered one of the most influential beings in the galaxy, on par with Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader, due to his exceptional wealth and influence through his criminal activities.

Xizor was born into a wealthy and royal Falleen family, becoming the head of Xizor Transport Systems he was already a trillionaire during the late years of the Galactic Republic. He claimed through the ranks of the Black Sun very quickly by the time of the Clone Wars, and when the war concluded he became a close friend of Palpatine while mere months after of Palpatine's declaration of his new order he was one of the top contenders to be a Virgo in the Black Sun.

In the years that followed, Xizor built two concurrent empires: one legitimate, one criminal. Xizor emerged as the leader of Black Sun and the proprietor of several major galactic corporations. To fund and facilitate his illegal empire, Xizor had his legal firms, such as Xizor Transport Systems, funnel funds, transfer contraband and launder millions of credits. The Falleen Prince ordered himself a personal craft, the Virago, which was a custom heavily modified StarViper Assault Fighter, made just for him. Upon completion, Xizor purchased all rights to the fighter, ensuring it was unique.

Xizor took a great deal of interest in dealing with the Hutts; knowing that they were the masters of all illegal activities in the Outer Rim, he hoped to ally himself with them and expand Black Sun's power to even greater levels. In the end, Xizor had succeeded in extending Black Sun's power far into the Outer Rim, while eliminating the threat of serious Hutt competition. In the galactic underworld, Black Sun was a power without equal.
===========

Personality/Traits

Xizor, according to Moff Fliry Vorru, relied too much on his ability to read others. Whereas it was true that he was an excellent judge of character, he did believe himself to be inherently superior to everyone. The Falleen ability to produce intoxicating pheromones together with his formidable brain and resourcefulness backed up his claim somewhat. He also considered himself a cultured man. Xizor also prided himself on his emotional control, which he attributed to his cold-blooded, reptilian ancestry.

Xizor kept himself in top physical condition. He disliked tedious exercise and so preferred to use myostim units that exercised individual muscles. Xizor was dangerous even when confronted alone. His excellent marksmanship and martial arts training made him a deadly opponent whether he was armed or not.
========

Thoughts: Xizor is....an interesting character, he is certainly one of my top 10 non-force user characters that I like. The fact he wasn't force sensitive, yet held all this power and was one of the top most influential beings in the galaxy and having the most powerful underworld syndicate in the galaxy was remarkable.

Read up guys! The next Kaggath Heat will be featuring the Prince himself!

Nice thread, Wolf. Combined you and Aurbere are really starting to build up a database that could rival the Jedi Library on Coruscant! (almost )

The Black Sun under Xizor is truly remarkable. What he could do with his resources is quite impressive. One of the major players in the galaxy during the time of the Empire.

Good read as always!
