To me, that sounds like a Shadow/Assassin class, but I guess Sentinel/Marauder types could also fit while Guardian/Juggernaut would probably be out because of the heavy armor. Any kind of ranged class would be a tough stretch because of the melee requirement, so anything that focusses on damage from more than 4m distance is out.

Gender-wise (not directly related to the question, admittedly), Echani society is written as highly matriarchal, so would you play as a male trying to forge a path away from the restrictions of the society (who knows, maybe with an underlying desire to be dominated by a strong woman... I am not going to judge...), or a female used to the world bending to your desires?
I'll be playing as a male - still fleshing out all of the details.

To respond to the classes, would the sentinel not make a bit more sense because of the lack of force powers (at least compared to a shadow)? Good shout on the guardian, I forgot that they tended to be more heavily armored during this time period.
