Sinead is the one of the two characters I write at SWRPG that wasn’t originally created on these boards. I created her at The Gungan Council during the brief time I spent writing there. I enjoyed Sinead a lot and thus decided to have her as well at my online home, SWRPG. I originally used singer Taylor Swift for her but eventually switched to actress Rachel Skarsten, to whom I have stuck for the past couple of years. Since using this actress, I also added Valkyrie from Marvel as a secondary image claim.
Sinead left her home world of Zelos II when banished because of accusation of witchcraft by people from her village. The young blonde was a half bloodied Zelosian, fathered by a human traveler she never knew. Due to her interest in many things from off world and her strong personality, she became an outcast, and left to explore the galaxy, when she was thrown away from home due to the false accusations. Being half Zelosian, she retains certain characteristics from her mother’s species, such as chlorophyll instead of blood in her veins, easy intoxication on sugar, but strong resistance to alcohol. She doesn’t suffer from the night blindness though. Hot and dry weathers are nevertheless difficult for her.
The blonde became a skilled thief over the years, even before she decided to work for the Hutt Cartel. She climbed up through the ranks with dedication and ease, enjoying the pay and the new options, which also challenged her to develop her talents. She became one of Vaago’s lieutenants after a few years, and oversaw the different mercenaries working for the Cartel. For a very long time I had Sinead unable to pilot a ship, and thus, often relying on public shuttles. I also had her have an interest in wood sculpting and jewelry crafting, but she is still in the early stages of getting back into these creative outlets.
For more than a year, Sinead had a relationship with whom she thought was the love of her life, a female Jedi master. While the two were about to get married, things took a drastic turn and they ended going their separate ways, which broke Sinead’s heart. Yet, she wasn’t angry at her ex fiancée, preferring that their relationship had ended than her love having been miserable if they had married. Following these events, I had a difficult time getting Sinead back on track.
She got hardened by this heartbreak and turned her back to her few ties with the Jedi. A while later, she accepted an offer from the imperials as to collaborate on certain missions with them. The female imperial agent she was assigned to work with eventually made her forget about her ex-fiancée. Sinead also spent more time getting to know her family from her father’s side, which included a Sith master and his son.
At this time in Sinead’s story, she reunited with her former fiancée and they were able to talk about what happened. They have now both moved on with their lives, and Sinead is currently seeing the female imperial agent she has been working with for the past months.
