Primary Specialty: Counterintelligence
Secondary Specialty: Reconnaissance
Tertiary Skills: Basic First Aid, Cooking (Corellian Cuisine), Martial Combat (Echani Unarmed), Martial Combat (Vibro-knife), Telecommunications, Slicing, Wilderness Survival
Bio: A competent soldier and survivalist, Samaèl serves as Pantere Unit's leader and strategic officer, performing field recon and offering remote intelligence. He is known for his ability to judge risk assessment, and possesses an uncanny ability to adapt to any situation despite the odds. One such situation involves evading capture behind enemy lines for several months with no imperial support. Despite this setback he was able to provide valuable intelligence on republic troop movements and managed to capture a command officer. His talent for marksmanship, while not remarkable, passed the entry exam for admission into the STAU program. It was his skill for adaptability and unconventional guerrilla tactics, that solidified his place among the other potential candidates. As a leader he understands the need to let his team operate with little guidance, instead trusting that they make the appropriate decisions in their given theater. He also takes great pride in his work and strives for professionalism when in the field and when on duty. This, however, does not stop him from encouraging the members of his team from socializing and creating competition between Pantere Unit and other perceived rival units.
"A professional has a plan to kill everyone he meets and doesn't let himself get attached to anything he is not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds if the situation turns sideways." - Samaèl Kassar

PVT Haethir Traike - STAU/SS - 006 /// Callsign: Skirmish \\\
Primary Specialty: Marksmanship/Toxicology
Secondary Specialty: Tracking
Tertiary Skills: Coercion, Deception, Infiltration, Martial Combat (Echani Unarmed), Persuasion, Subversion
Bio: Daughter to Asgeirr and Finnea Traike, Haethir Traike (RTTKI) was born and raised in the secluded frontier world of Ylesia, where her family supposedly owned and managed a ranch, herding reeks (their involvement in the Ylesian spice/slave trade has yet to be definitively proven). Officially, she claims that her grandfather taught her how to track and hunt from a young age (though disputed and conflicting rumors suggest that she may have been involved with the “reclamation” of runaway slaves on Ylesia). Her ability to focus on any present task is her greatest strength, even if she is evasive of conversation regarding her past. In any case, she apparently has not held any contact with her family on Ylesia after suddenly applying for Imperial citizenship through military service and, after two years’ service in the 9th light infantry brigade on Balmorra and, later, Taris, was transferred to an unspecified STAU unit following her flawless performance on the ISSAA (Imperial Sharp-Shooting and Accuracy Assessment) and positive, if not disconcerting, performance reviews by her superiors.
"Me? A liar? You must be mistaken; lying's just not in my nature." - Haethir Traike
