"Beryl Thorne is a freight hauler who specializes in getting cargo to places other spacers consider hazardous to their health. She’s run weapons past Imperial blockades, medical supplies into quarantine zones and most recently took charge of the biggest supply depot on the dangerous post-disaster world Taris. Although she is always accompanied by her terminally malfunctioning droid assistant AR-G0, Beryl has never kept a first mate on her crew for more than a few months. This has given her a reputation for being unlucky to work for, but that’s probably just spacer superstition. Rumors persist of Beryl’s shady past and brief stay at an Imperial prison, but she has operated as a legitimate business owner for years. That doesn’t mean Beryl hasn’t had her share of run-ins with Republic law enforcement–only that the charges never seem to stick. Whether through guile or genuine innocence, Beryl always remains a step ahead of the law."
