Star Wars: Edge of the Galaxy
"Welcome to Wu & Sons! How might we be of service?"
Captain Lao-Ghong Wu was once an esteemed Admiral for the Galactic Republic Navy during the Clone Wars. A native of Anaxes, Admiral Lao-Ghong Wu was known for his polite and courteous manner that belied a ruthless and cunning strategic mind; often discovered too late by Separatist military leaders. Jokingly referred to by his Clone subordinates during the war as the “Fortune Teller”, (for the hours he would sit in front of holo-globes studying planetary geography) the rise of the Galactic Empire would be anything but fortunate for him. After refusing command of Imperial forces meant to put down an uprising on Naboo, he was stripped of his rank in the Imperial Navy. After refusing to execute his own men for not following orders that were issued solely by Imperial Command (and therefore not himself), he was dishonourably discharged.
Since then, Lao-Ghong Wu gathered the rest of his family together and began to apply his ruthless cunning to trade and economics. He acquired the Crimson King in a game of Dejarik, and with it, founded Wu And Sons Trade Emporium; a trading organization flying under the radar of the Galactic Empire. Now styling himself Captain of the Crimson King, Lao-Ghong Wu has employed his adult children as both crew of his ship, and merchants/traders for Wu And Sons. He has since been recruited to aid the Smuggler’s Alliance by Captain Soleil.
