Trace never wanted to be a thief, he dreamt of joining the Imperial Fleet, becoming a fighter pilot and travelling to the outer worlds battling space pirates and and enemies of the Empire, but the guildmaster of the Jurrika City Thieves Guild had other ideas, ripping away his family and forcing the young boy into a life of crime. A chance meeting with a half-dragon from other side of the empire's social spectrum would change his life forwever, giving Trace the chance to be something better than just a common street thief, a hero.
The main protagonist characters are:
Trace Ellison - A 15-year-old (he thinks) half-elf street thief suddenly about to be in over his head.
Lord Korodo - A half-red dragon noble of House Mazorgrim who is deeply unhappy with the current regime.
Bolts - A former gnome mechanic who died and was turned into a soulmech. Now works as an engineer on Korodo's yacht.
Barak - An orc and former Imperial Legionnaire. Acts in a "Public Relations" role for Korodo.
Tsukiko - A female human medic and latent psionic talent who also works for Korodo.
Dragonstar is a d20 campaign setting by Fantasy Flight Games and is one of my favourite settings. The characters and story are mine but the setting is theirs.
