Steanaler has a very mingled personality. Usally he is nice and considering, and can always have a word to say, something that would pick you up when you are down. He has a strong sense of duty, and often rushes into things because of that duty. He gets into trouble most of the time because of it, but he can figure out how to pull himself out. But he has another side, one that he rarely lets anyone see. Inside he is bitter, and angry. He blames himself for not being able to help his family(see below). This also affects his judgment, making him unpredictable in battle.
Steanaler comes from a remote world called Adumar. It only served as two things to the republic, As a post for Pioneers who wanted to explore the Unknown Regions, and as Protection from any attack from behind. Adumar was strategic in that whoever controlled it would have access to the core worlds, without having to go through many many other systems. This is why it became a target for the Sith
Steanaler's family lived off their own farm. they didn't go into one of the few towns very often, because they had everything they needed right on their farm. Steanaler's father owned an older starship that he had never used. Life was simple for Steanaler and he was happy.
When the sith Invaded Adumar they had to attack a Republic outpost that was in the town nearest to Steanaler. Normally this would have not bothered his little family farm, but the sith came up on the town from behind. Steanaler's farm was directly in their path of destruction.
Steanaler's father put him in his own starship right before they were attacked. Steanaler watched from the air as the sith destroyed his home. From there he vowed to never let it happen again, that Evil would not be able to destroy anymore.
