Background History:
Born to a wealthy CEO of an Outer Rim mining company, Ivy Ra was the oldest of three sisters. As her father and her mother failed to produce a male heir, Ivy was educated in Economics, Finances, Business Law, Business Management, Intergalactic Economic Politics, and Mining Processes and Technologies. At the age of 12, she was considered a prodigy and her mental capabilities allowed her to quickly excel beyond her younger sisters and her peers.

Ivy soon realized that the life of a CEO was demanding, difficult, tedious and worst of all, uninteresting. When she had turned 18, Ivy had yearned to create her own business enterprise, but unlike her father's respectable mining company, Ivy was interested one of galaxy's illegitimate crafts: pirating. In order to delve into the criminal underworld, Ivy knew that she needed the resources to jump-start her enterprise. She had spent one year recruiting her close associates and friends to embark on her pursuit of material wealth. Gathering a small crew of 74 loyal members, she used all her personal assets and credits in order to equip her crew decently with various arms and armor.

When she turned 18, she proposed an independent mining project in the depths of Meram, an isolated, remote and small sector in the Outer Rim, to her father and his board of directors as a front to start up her operations. Approved by her father, who considered it a step toward becoming more involved with the company, Ivy had received control over 4 BFF-1 Bulk Freighters, several thousand tons of raw materials for mining facilities, 4 Y-8 Mining Vessels, 120 LIN Demolitionmechs, and 120 ASP-707 droids. From that day on, Ivy embarked to take control of the Meram Sector.

Personal Description
Ivy Ra is a tall, slender young woman with pale skin and jet black hair, falling casually at her shoulders. When off duty, she usually wears a simple, strapless short dress, a pair of black stilletos, and a holster for her personal modified Dissuader KD-30 Slugthrower Pistol. Her DIssuader KD-30 Pistol was specifically modified to shoot incendiary rounds as well as anti-armor jacketed hollow point bullets. Often beside her is Minerva, a close friend and skilled mercenary, although no one really knows about her history. It is rumored that Minerva was involved in thousands of assassination and combat missions, but any records of Minerva have been destroyed or missing.

She and her crew wear heavily modified power suits, which sacrifices heavy armor and strength for agility and vacuum-survival capabilities. The vacuum survival suit is composed of three components: a temperature-controlled body glove, a "skeleton", and an external vacuum-survival suit. The "skeleton" is actually the series of motors and basic framing found in a typical powersuit after it is stripped of its armor and weapons. She modified this skeleton structure to fit her exact physical dimensions, as well as wiring the motors to a centralized datapad located on her wrist. The external vacuum-survival suit is composed of jet black durasteel plates, which interlock with one another to create an air-tight seal within the suit. These durasteel plates are connected through a series of metallic joints and motors, allowing Ivy a full range of motion that is fluid and unhindered.

Several BFF-1 Bulk Freighters ripped through hyperspace and entered Kauron system.

"Captains, report to the bridge Hell's Uprising immediately. I expect a status report of your respective starships..." Ivy Rabor barked through her comm-link, "NOW."

"This is the Captain of the Arbiter, reporting for duty...Ma'am," Minerva stated indifferently, "All systems are online and we are ready for further orders."

"This is the Captain of the Warmonger, reporting for duty," grunted Lurch roughly, "All systems are online and an energy scan of the system indicate no other ships in the area."

"This is the Captain of the Iron Maiden," whispered a soft, almost inaudible voice, "We are a few thousand kilometers behind the rest of the freighters, proceeding to engaging the engine systems."

"Understood," Ivy tersely replied, "All ships, set course toward the asteroid field. My Communications Officer will relay the specific coordinates to all of you."

Approaching a large asteroid, she disengages the main engines and uses her vernier thrusters to angle her descent correctly. The BFF-1 Bulk Freighter slows down, and Ivy proceeds to initiate landing protocol.

"Officer Rev, what is the ETA to the surface of the asteroid?" Ivy asks.

"Ma'am, we will be reaching the surface of the asteroid in 2 minutes," Officer Rev states, "The asteroid is currently immobile, so the landing should be fairly smooth."

Ivy nods as a silent gesture of gratitude and turns on her comm-link to address the crew, "Attention. We are preparing to land, all personnel report to the landing stage. I repeat, all personnel report to the landing stage."

The BFF-1 Bulk Freighter creaks and moans as the freighter lands on the asteroid, and the force of the ship's impact sends a large dust cloud upward, clouding her visibility.

Slightly shaken by the rough landing, Ivy shakes her head and walks quickly toward the landing stage. She states, "Crew, be prepared to begin work immediately. This embattlement needs to be completed quickly and efficiently."

Ivy points to the vast empty darkness of space, "In two weeks, an Imperial scouting party will arrive to monitor our activities. All embattlements and our main headquarters must be completed by then." She puts her hand on the shoulder of one of the crew members, "Alright, lets head out."

Ivy quickly secures her helmet to the rest of the suit and activities the life-support systems. She then walks to the cargo bay blastdoors and slams the red button. A red siren lights up, and the crew quickly departs from the BFF-1 Bulk Freighter...

"Go, go, go." Ivy yells, "Get those foundations started and use the ASP-707 droids to assist in the construction work..."

Over the next two weeks, Ivy used more than half of the construction materials her father had provided to set up seventeen embattlements, hidden in the cores of several asteroids and equipped with sophisticated sensor systems. In addition, she constructed a spacious base in one of the largest asteroids in the system, equipped with a docking bay as well as an advanced engineering bay. With the remainder of the building materials, she set up six different mining facilities on various asteroids, extracting Lommite, Carvanium, Neutronium and Zersium.
