If You've Got It, Flaunt It The galaxy loves a Twi'lek, and Chiasa knows it and is not above using it.
Look Over There! Chiasa likes misdirection. She's subtle and manipulative, and good at having people watch the left hand while her right takes advantage. All right, it's not usually either hand that people are watching, but they ought to.
Surprisingly Low Maintenance Chiasa is fine with roughing it. Having survived the deserts of Ryloth, she is competent in the wilderness, and when in highly populated areas can deal with slums or food that's not the best. She likes the high life, but can get by without.
Wanna See How Flexible I Am? Chiasa was initially trained as an exotic dancer, and is something of a natural contortionist. She's very flexible and has good dexterity. She's also ambidextrous.
Domestically Inclined She likely won't do it for you, but if she wanted to she can cook, clean, bake, sew...
Ruthless Chiasa will do what she needs to to hold onto what she has
Silver-tongued Chiasa is rarely straight forward, always looking after number one and is very good at leading people where she wants them. She can read people and adapt on the fly.
Credits Talk Chiasa doesn't embezzle. She does however invest, and she's been making sound business decisions and paying herself a quite generous if not unreasonable fee for several years. Even without access to all the Ravens funds, Chiasa is rich. She is unlikely to tell you just how rich.
Smart Cookie Chiasa is fairly smart too start with, and with a drive to succeed she educates herself on whatever she needs to know, from drugs to hyperdrives and everything in between. If she doesn't have a person for it, she'll damn well do it herself.
Connections Chiasa knows a lot of people, some of them are enemies sure, but a lot aren't come after her and you never know who else will be on your case
Does Not Abuse The 'Roids Chiasa is not particularly physically strong. If it comes down to a one on one fight where strength is the deciding factor she's pretty well hooped.
Don't Touch My Tail, Any Of Them! Like all twi'lek, Chiasas lekku are extremely sensitive and a strong tug can incapacitate her with pain.
Curse You Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal! Chiasa doesn't trust easily, but once she does, that's it. She would absolutely not see a betrayal coming from someone she trusted even if she'd watched and helped them betray every other being they know and they constantly cackled about how they loved betraying and never really care about anyone ever.
Vain Little Peacock Chiasa is vain and increasingly proud. Where once she was entirely pragmatic, now if she is in public chances are she will not back down
The Animal Inside Peacock on the surface, but all tiger at heart. Chiasa gets very territorial, and if hurt enough falls back to instinct which urges her to fight even when she can't win
Addict Chiasa is a user of Lesai. While this means she gets to go without sleep and there are no real drawbacks, greatly increasing her productive time, if she should ever find herself cut off she'd soon be in a sorry state. She has the usual purple stain in the hollow of her throat.
Family There is nothing Chiasa would not do to protect her
Ice Queen Chiasa is not your friend. She does not trust you. She will not love you. Your interest might align. That is all.

Look it's really not that interesting and I'm not sure it's any of your business anyway okay?
You're still here.. Fine. Let's see. Little girl born on Ryloth, sold off to a famous dance hall to support and bring honour to the family yadda yadda, basic twi'lek life. It might surprise you, but while dancing is an incredible and pure artform, some of us aren't actually interested in being your eye candy and certainly do not want you hands all over us. Ooo, Twi'lek are so sexy. Yes, we are. Most of you aren't. I can't imagine why you think you have a chance. Anyway. I didn't mind the dancing part, I was good at it too, but it was a business. They wanted patrons. Guess what the patrons wanted.
So, I left. I mean it wasn't real slavery. No chains or guards or anything. I just.. walked out into the desert. And I survived.
I found.. I don't know how to say this so that you would understand. I had a revelation. That makes it sound very flash of light, special effects, instantaneous insight doesn't it? It wasn't like that. Let's just say I was pretty good at surviving when I shouldn't have been. Let's say luck only accounts for so much. Too much finding food, too many hints about what was safe and what wasn't, too many good guesses about the weather. In short, I had a new career opportunity, and if I pursue it, if I follow it, if I chase it down and make it mine..
No one will ever see me as just a status symbol again. Or not for long.
Been a while hasn't it?
What have I done..
I joined an at the time up and coming criminal organization known as the Red Ravens. Rather funny actually. I never really joined. I walked in, pretended I already belonged and no one questioned me. Confidence. Enough of it and you can do anything. Not long after I got promoted to Minister of Diplomacy, an odd post for a criminal organization but there you are. Then Vice President, then President.
That's right. From slave dancer to the most notorious Crime Lord in the galaxy leading the largest Criminal Organization.
It wasn't that easy of course. Surprise surprise, criminals are mostly terrible people. There were a lot of betrayals. A lot. My bosses, my equals, my underlings.. Basically no one I could trust, but someone had to keep things running. Someone had to step up. So I did.
Had a daughter, Meliha. I wiped my memory of her, and her sire to try and keep them safe. I had a 75 million credit bounty on my head at the time. If I was caught I didn't want anyone finding out about or going after her. Didn't turn out so well. Her sire who I entrusted her care with came after me. Attacked me in my own home. I didn't know him. That was.. less than pleasant. I wiped my memory of him as well. I have no idea how I thought he was a good choice or even if I did willingly choose him. Doesn't matter. I have my daughter back and he can stay far away from me. Last time I did not hurt him, held back and was paid for it only in pain. Next time I will not be so foolish.
Kept running into a man, Draco Vereen. Thought he was an utter idiot to start with, but he's grown quickly, and far more than I thought he ever would. He decided to court me. I intended to use him. I.. I did not expect him to be who and what he is. In short, he is now my husband, and I intend to stay at his side. Dragon and Starbird, and let those who stand against us burn.
I suppose this means I'll need to learn what it is to be Mandalorian. That is the culture he claims as his own. For him I will learn it.
You would think I'd have learned by now.
What do you do when you dedicate your life to someone and then one day out of the blue they turn to you and tell you that they don't love you? That they deserve someone better?
I suppose at this point I have to assume that the problem might be me. I am the common denominator. I was sad. And I was angry. Sometimes I still am. Mostly I just feel old and tired. And I do not intend to be made to feel this way again. I am done. This Starbird burns cold. No more men. No more relationships. No more so-called love.
It is a lie.
