Vislor Vittbug is the president of the Deep Core Banking Group, one of the major financial organisations of the Imperial Remnant and a major rival of the Muunilist Bank. He is one of the wealthiest men in the Galaxy, earning millions of credits daily. He likes to enjoy and flaunt his wealth, but his hedonism is matched by his firm commitment to support the Empire.

Vittbug was born on Cambria in the Deep Core to parents of modest wealth. Apprenticed to the Cambrian Bank, he worked his way through various financial organisations to eventually take control of the Deep Core Banking Group. Along the way, he made many prudent investments across the Galaxy.

Although his official residence is on Cambria, Vittbug spends much of his time on the pleasure planet of Canntrop. On the golden seas of that planet, he has a fabulously large yacht called The Prosperity Star. The yacht parties Vittbug hosts are a major feature of the high society of the Imperial Remnant. At such parties holomovie stars and fashion models rub shoulders with Grand Moffs and Imperial admirals. Successive leaders of the Imperial Remnant, including Triolocus, Isard, Thrawn, Daala and Pellaeon have all enjoyed the luxuries of The Prosperity Star, though like all the guests, they were required to remove their boots to protect its precious Rheeshwood decks. Given the prestige of its visitors, it is unsurprising that these yacht parties have become centres of intrigue among the Imperial aristocracy. They have also afforded Vittbug much opportunity to gain the ear of the powerful.

Vittbug has a keen interest in racing as well as boats. He is president of the Imperial Landspeeder Racing Federation and chairman of the Canntrop Landspeeder Racing Association. He is also a patron of the Umgulian Blob Races. His involvement in those races led to his becoming a close friend of the Duchess Mistal of Dargul and her consort, Dack. He does however, have only contempt for the less prestigious sport of Pod Racing and has written a book about the criminal element within that sport.

In marriage, Vittbug has had some disappointments. He was divorced from his first wife, an accomplished doctor and his second wife, a holomovie star. Both of these women gained very generous settlements. His third marriage seems to be a more successful affair. Lippi Vittbug was an officer and interrogator of the Imperial Security Bureau. The banker met her when she was organizing security at a social function on Bastion. They seem well matched and Lippi's sternness has curbed something of Vislor's love of excess. Their happiness was briefly marred during an ill-advised trip to Coruscant. Lippi was arrested by the New Republic authorities on suspicion of crimes against sentients. Nevertheless, Vittbug used all his wealth and influence to get the charges against her dropped and she was freed after spending several weeks in a New Republic detention centre.

Vittbug is fiercely loyal to the Galactic Empire. It is his belief that a successful and prosperous economy depends upon a strong and stable government. He is perhaps a little naive when it comes to the more brutal side of the Empire, but he is at heart a decent and generous man.
A Star Wars OC I created. I might just use him in my fiction.

Yea. I'm currently working on my own Star Wars character. She's a half-Korun who becomes a Sith Warrior. Take a look when you can.

You know I would have expected a banker from you to be a Munnilist instead of a human, as it does fit your usually "working outside the mold" concepts there.. He's a very interesting character, overall. One I could expect to be able to get around the Galaxy and his actions as a banker is something that I can imagine could have the potential of weighing heavily upon the future of the Empire for better or worse. I am looking forward to where you go with him.

*Reads the comments already made.* lol Didn't know that pilot FCs were that common, actually. I just have had a particular attachment towards Imperial Pilots from some past experiences. Sorry about that, man. XD Oh well, could be worse.

Maybe after winning some heroic battles, Vittbug will invite your ace pilots to one of his yacht parties!

XD I'm sure they'll be thrilled to meet the guy who probably came up with the idea of why their ships are so "cost effective" compared to the Rebels'.

Oh no- I love your pilots! They are different from others that I have seen.

I was kind of annoyed when they made the Muunilisti into aliens. It doesen't make any sense for galactic commerce to be centred on the Outer Rim.

I think a good deal of Imperial banking would have been centred on the Core. The Muunilisti must be newcomers on the finance scene; even if their financial empire does precede Palpatine's rule.

The reason I opted for a human is that I need a character who is a part of Imperial high society. Imperial warlords might borrow money from the Muunilisti, but they would not be attending yacht parties with them!

Somebody must have wanted to tie up the Bankers Guild in Attack of the Clones with Muunilist, without really thinking through the context.

Intresting character, I'd like to see what kind of story you're going to base him around.

I might tell the story of his wife the ISB interrogator getting locked up by the New Republic and how he busts her out (with a little help from his Imperial friends).

Of course, well keep me posted. When I finally get the time, I'm going to have to get back to my stories of working class Rebels! Heheh.

It's a bit boring just creating endless heroic Jedi and noble fighter aces, Imperial or Rebel.

I don't think so, I got a Rebel grunt spacecraft mechanic who's about to get himself into all kinds of danger at the battles of Hoth and Endor. If his luck holds out he may get to see his wife who'd he'd saved from Jabba the Hutt again. But that's me and my character, you're characters are good too, I just veiw anything Empire related as evil.

I didn't mean all your characters fitted into those categories, but an awful lot of Star Wars OCs are just Jedi from one species or another.

What was the currency in Star Wars called again? The one they were haggling over in the cantina..

I love how your characters are not the usual PC characters..Their sympathies are often with the so called "bad guys" of the fandom in question.

Credits.

Celestialhost character tropes and cliches-

- Usually female
- Usually wealthy or powerful
- Generally right-wing and authoritarian
- Usually a villain
- Generally occupies a peripheral role in the fandom mythos
- Has a shoe-ban in her home (or yacht, in this case)

Interesting, Brittania is an exception in key areas..she is an OC technically.


Random question: What fandom did you want to tackle that you have not yet?

3 out of 6 and she's not part of a fandom.

It would be nice to do something with Transformers, but I just can't get into the mind of a robot. I thought about a crossover with Jadis meeting Shockwave, but I don't think I can quite get that to work in my mind.

I have never written anything for Star Trek, but I'm not good with technical stuff or Star Trek technology.

Not written anything for Dragonlance before. It's been a long time since I read any Dragonlance books though, so I'm probably rusty on the source material.

Star Trek would be cool!

Maybe a return to Batman..

I can't quite see myself writing Star Trek any time soon. That whole fictional universe just has a bland feel to it.

the original series had some nice edgy sci fi stories..

The Next Generation was the beginning of the blandness..I know what your talking about!

Deep Space Nine is a lot edgier. Just look at the character of Gul Dukat- a war criminal who is portrayed sympathetically.

Not to mention the Federation turning out to have its own secret police!
