Character Biography Edit
Artimis Do'jima Raiden was born to a Imperial noble family living on Corulag. His youth was a tough one his parents were always to preoccupied to actually spend time with him sending him off to the Imperial Academy at the age of 12. This led to Artimis becoming quite knowledgeable of the Empire's inner workings but at the age of 15 he was kicked out of the academy due to near killing an officer that continuously shouted at how useless Artimis was. At one point he simply flipped and ended up fighting the officer.
As he was kicked out of the Academy he put all the skills he learned such as the usage of blasters and other weaponry to make a mark as one of the younger criminals as his parents were deeply ashamed of his behavior in the academy.
Artimis at the age of 16 ended up joining the Black Sun Syndicate as an enforcer quickly working his way through the ranks becoming the rank Vigo at the age of 20 through several violent means such as the attempt of murder on a local politician who was working on plans that would route out the Black Sun Syndicate.
He made many contact with a ambitious hutt called Ku'gan The Hutt. It was during these days that he heard news that his parents had died Artimis made way to Coruscant to honor their passing and give them the burial they required.
Artimis was now 23 and felt that the Black sun Syndicate did not have much else to offer. Ku'gan the hutt was seeking a person to lead a small band of his personal guard against the local Imperial Garrison. Artimis knowing the inner workings of the Empire due to his studys at the Imperial Academy applied for the job and was provided it.
He spend two years as the leader of the so called Rebel Loyalists financed by Ku'gan to cause mayhem and disorder for the empire on Tatooine it was at this point that he had several run ins with his old Companion Cayce Urriah whom at that point was leading the Black Sun syndicate into a newer brighter future. Artimis assigned one of his most experienced officers to take over the Rebellion as he rejoined Cayce at the rank of Vigo hoping to form a new generation of Black Sun pirates.
For several years they had been succesful in doing this.
At this point Artimis met Kaiser whom he soon after adopted into his family name being the eldest at this point. Kaiser and Artimis continued to serve the Black Sun for a while until they once again realized this was not the way they wanted to live Kaiser being a Lord of the Sith took Artimis in as his apprentice and began to teach him in the arts of the Dark side the Raiden family always had a strong bond with the Force even though Artimis his late parents denied any of this due to their fear of the Dark Council and the history of the Raiden family as Sith Lords. At this point Artimis was 30 years old he had learned much of the Dark side and the ways of the Sith.
Artimis ended up dating and marrying a young girl who would later turn out to be a former jedi who'm left her order to see more of the galaxy on her own. They conceived several children. Stallion Raiden whom joined the Dantooine Jedi Order however this was all a ingenious plan of Artimis.
His wife was killed not long after this in the bar she was working at as a bar tender. Artimis was furious he traveled to Korriban together with his now adopted brother Kaiser they joined the academy in search of a way to destroy those who killed his wife, After several years on Korriban Artimis now being nearly at the start of his 40's Kaiser and Artimis formed a group of mercenary's together with his brother Kaiser. This ultimately led to the founding of the now Bloodtalon Syndicate.
They killed the ones who killed his wife however Artimis grew a liking to the pirates he got back into contact with Ku'gan and so the Bloodtalon Syndicate changed from a bunch of mercenaries hired to kill the murderers of his wife into a tightly runned Crime syndicate doing all kinds of deals and later on owning several factories that produced items such as Specialized Spice to Cybernetic limbs.
This made Artimis a very very wealthy man wealthy enough to reclaim the Nobility for his family name through the Imperial Office of Treasury. Together with his adopted brother Kaiser together with the help of Black Sun Leader Kabriel Le'Sanit founded the Galactic Syndicate Union a group of similar minds all in the criminal worlds.
The GSU became one of the most prosperous business ventures Artimis Kaiser and Kabriel Le'Sanit founded. Completely independent from Empire or Republic they formed their own Governmental embodiment leading to a golden age of crime and piracy many old family's often speak of the Golden Days of Crime even today.
This also led to the events of the "Sacking Of Bothawui" Senator Obie Solo at the time became High Chancelor Of The Alliance and began a crusade against the growing Crime Sectors of the galaxy together with common threats towards Artimis his Bloodtalon Syndicate and Kabriel Le'Sanit his Black Sun.
Unfortunately Kaiser felt the calling of the depths of the force and he left the Bloodtalon Syndicate it was then that Artimis met a man called Faragila Raiden a former soldier who ran out of luck and sought new opportunities, preferably with a big income.
The Bloodtalon Syndicate prospered for several years after the formation of the GSU but later got into Darker Days due to several cases of In fighting.
Artimis was mortally wounded during a incursion with several remnants of the Alliance this led to him requiring many cybernetics to ensure he lived. However considering he had managed to purchase several factories these costs were near nothing to him.
Artimis at the age of 50 reformed the Bloodtalon Syndicate into a mixture of Piracy and Organized Criminal Activity. This however was a sore decision and led to the Bloodtalons slow disintegration now only a fraction of the former Bloodtalon Power remains. Artimis met up with the queen of Bakura at the time Queen Ma'at Nephthys which led to another run in with the Jedi Orders positioned on Bakura at the time. The Queen chose to pardon Artimis for his past crimes against the republic however this was not openly accepted by the Jedi due to the amount of murder and mayhem the Galactic Syndicate Union Caused.
Artimis then left to the newly formed Sith Homeworld on Byss. He managed to get in good favor with much of the Dark Council due to his past assistance in terms of Empire vs Republic / Alliance battles. He was presented with a Force imbued Sword by Darth Sar'Rai as a reward for his past war efforts. Artimis can often be found at the Imperial Court these days where he enjoys a life of luxury and great business opportunities.
However Artimis still is plotting and working close to any big Criminal Organization hoping to return the so called Golden Days of Crime.

Months passed and Artimis managed to gain quite the amount of credits through the Spice Lounge although shared between him and Kabriel Le'sanit the business was quite lucrative.
