While he parted on good terms with his lovers once he was denounced by Baron Chauvelin a number of fathers, husbands, brothers, fiances, boyfriends and various hangers on who wanted to fill one of the aforementioned roles jumped to the conclusion, usually correctly, that Arcz had been intimate with one (or more) of the ladies in their life. Sometimes they were even able to guess or find out the correct lady.
|Conflict (Adrenaline Junky)
Escaping from a fortified compound with guards in hot pursuit and getting away by the skin of his teeth has invigorated Arcz in a way that he has never before experienced. It is a feeling that he wants to feel again and again and again.
|High and Mighty
Born into a wealthy House in the Tapani Sector, young Arcz never new a day of hardship in his life. Cheerful and easy going he made friends easily. He developed a very mischievous nature at a young age but whenever things went too far he was able to calm people down and get them to see the lighter side of what happened. As he grew older, and his desire for those of the fairer sex, left the young noble in hot water. Stripped of his inheritance, and banished from stepping foot back in the Tapani Sector, Arcz has been forced to wine and dine his way into the hearts of many a later, and into the minds of a few too many criminals and Imperial Officers.
Currently on the run from several extra marital affairs, Arca has chosen to lay low. Unfortunately, the heat doesn’t seem to be passing, and only recently has he taken up employment with a young smuggler to help him get the better deals and land the more lucrative jobs.

Born into the wealthy Ellesi Family of House Melantha from the Tapani Sector, young Arcz never knew a day of hardship in his life. Cheerful and easy going, he made friends easily. He developed a very mischievous nature at a young age but whenever things went too far he was able to calm people down and get them to see the lighter side of what happened.
While he was sent to the very best schools for those with money and rank, he never really took to any type of academic studies. Arcz preferred spending his time on the sports field o doing recreational activities with his friends. He also became the leader of a small clique of pranksters, which meant that he also spent a lot of time in the headmaster’s office. Childish tricks gave way to elaborate pranks, which eventually lead to him being called home. It was apparent that some members of the faculty had less of a sense of humour that Arcz did and were singularly unmoved by his attempts to charm his way out of trouble.
Arcz father did everything he could to curb the young man’s behaviours, including hiring a combat droid to teach him the use of weapons, and a tutor to finish his education. Arcz found a talent for blade work and a desire for his tutor’s very attractive assistant. Young love soon after flared, but soon Arcz’s education was completed, and he bid a fond farewell to his first love.
Over the following years and with his introduction to high society, many more loves followed as he romanced the beautiful wives, daughters and mistresses of the various noble houses he came into contact with, along with dozens of women he met in some of the more shady establishments in the Tapani Sector. Arcz had a penchant for gambling, and it was in one now infamous game of Sabaac, that he met one of his best friends, Zax Wettega.
Zax had travelled to Tapani with his master on business, but his master, now very drunk on Corellian Whiskey, allowed the young man to hit the town. Both Arcz and Zax made it into a high stakes game of sabacc when a brawl started when one of the participants found another to be cheating. The two helped each other out in the fight, and Arcz, being the one more familiar with the starport, got Zax back to his ship in one piece. The two then caught up whenever Zax was back in town, and the two became good friends. It also helped that Arcz was able to steer some business Zax’s way, which kept him in good stead with both his master and his master’s employers.
Meanwhile, Arcz returned to his favourite proclivity – women. He only romanced the willing though, and never parted on bad terms. However, within days of the end of the Clone Wars, Arcz was brought undone when he was caught exiting the palace of House Mecetti where Lady Calistra Leobund, daughter to the head of House Mecetti, and her mother resided. Outraged, High Lord Bodé Leobund had Arcz arrested and thrown in prison for this act of atrocity. The fact however was that High Lord Leobund was mistaken regarding Arcz’s purpose in the palace. The vain, and frequently absent High Lord thought Arcz was there to molest his daughter, while in actuality he had been on his way out after visiting Leobund’s wife. This is a fact, he swore to never reveal, thus protecting Leobund’s wife’s honour.
No matter the truth, accusations of rape were leveled at Arcz, and his family could do little more than watch on, living in the hope that some kind of miracle would save their wayward son. This miracle came at the end of the Clone Wars when Supreme Chancellor Palpatine issued Order 66, destroyed the Jedi Council, proclaimed them as traitors to the Republic, and formed the Galactic Empire.
Whilst Arcz awaited trial, Palpatine, who had built a considerable relationship with many of the Noble Houses in Tapani, decreed that Tapani could govern in its own right, however each house must “volunteer” a noble from each family to remain on Coruscant. Many of the nobles realised that this was the Emperor’s way of allowing the Tapani a hollow freedom – govern thy self, but pay the price by sacrificing its children as insurance should certain houses make actions which the Emperor deemed “too independent”. What this meant to Arcz was that his family nominated him as their volunteer. This suited High Lord Leobund, and consequently all charges were dropped providing that Arcz provided a formal public apology to House Mecetti, and that he agreed he would be sent by his family to Coruscant never to return to his home again. Arcz however never made it to Coruscant, or even to making the apology.
Whilst being transferred from the Mecetti Prison on Obulette, Arcz made a daring escape out of the prison speeder, and over the rooftops of the city. Knowing that if he stayed, his family would be ruined by the scandal, he headed for the spaceport, stopping only to say goodbye to his mother. Arcz was almost caught several times, and authorities were soon flooding the area in search of the fugitive. It was only through pure luck, that Arcz stumbled across his old friend Zax. Arcz pleaded with Zax for his assistance, and soon after, both Arcz and Zax were headed to the Outer Rim. Arcz and Zax soon after parted company, with Zax returning to his obligations with the Hutts, and Arcz to his new found freedom.
In the following 5 years, Arcz has travelled the galaxy, normally under the dime of a local business or noble women. Most recently, Arcz landed back in the Dominus Sector, specifically on the trade world of Ord Soquor. Arcz spent a few months on the planet, living out of several women’s apartments it would seem, when eventually he met his latest conquest – a woman named Hela Jissaro. Hela was a beauty and exquisite for her age – that and she fell madly in love with Arcz. Unfortunately, what Arcz didn’t know was that Hela was the wife of Governor Jissaro of the Ruac system. Consequently, Arcz needed to get off world as word was spreading that Arcz was sleeping with the Governor’s wife. Almost by chance, as though it was destiny, Arcz ran into Zax, who by this stage was now running his own boat whilst working directly for a Hutt Crimelord named Treska. Arcz asked for help, and reminded Zax of the jobs he had swindled for him, and the fun that had together. Zax however was a good friend, and although Arcz had somewhat embellished his position to help Zax make up his mind, Zax agreed to get Arcz off world, and the two have been working together ever since.
Arcz has kept his deception to himself, and since then has been trying to come through for his friend with lucrative deals and profitable cargoes. The best so far however has been getting a cute Twi’lek mechanic to join his crew. But Lady Luck was a fickle mistress, and Arcz is always on the hunt for that next “big thing”. He swears he will make good on his promise…he just needs a little more time…
