Two Minbari and a Narn – TMAN

Minbari Soldier formerly of the Wise Aces mercenary group (played by Bill Boivin).

Former slave of a banished Warrior clan, he is now the manager of a new Mercenary group based out of B5, financed by two mysterious benefactors.  He is very independent and most especially feels no allegiance to the Minbari race.

Background: Grew up in a lower caste and as a slave on a colony world. He is a non-traditional Minbari. Warrior caste enslaved lower castes on his home world, much to the dismay of the Gray Council. For years, the GC did not know about it. The Warrior Caste Clan in charge of this world was ruthless and cruel.

Sha’lan has chosen to become a warrior as part of his plan for revenge.

  • need to give him a target – a Warrior Caste leader that was complacent in the slavery
  • need a name for the colony/homeworld
  •  It is perhaps abandoned now.

Homeworld Conspiracy

As part of his contacting of the Minbari diplomatic team, Sha’lan had to identify himself. Knowing the name is associated to his homeworld, this drew some attention

Homeworld ideas

  • Antra System (GG 125) – A Minbari underground colony built by a rogue warrior clan searching for signs of weapons used against the Antrians.
    Rogue warrior caste/clan – a group within the warrior caste that even the warrior caste is ashamed of. A templar-like group – a merging of warriors and religious caste. Both the warriors and the religious caste are covering it up

Sha’lan has learned that there is some controversy associated to his homeworld and what happened there. There is some tension between the Warriors and the Religious and Workers because of this world.

  • possible conspiracy – perhaps the Hand involved?
  • The warrior caste and the religious caste were at one time infiltrated by The Hand.

Minbari secret society plot (“ghost hunters”)

Upon arriving back at B5, Sha’lan is pursuing ways to make closer contacts with the Gray Council. He is trying to find ways in to work with the Minbari diplomatic corp.

The Minbari Government is showing interest in some Narn and Centauri agent movement in the regions between Narn and Centauri space. They have asked some agents including Sha’lan to investigate. Sha’lan is part of the group that is hired by Travis Reno as a last minute add on to the mission for The Eye. Sha’lan helped investigate the rogue telepath, and was involved in the battle with the Psi Corp Agents.
