Jason and his brother Xion Lightener were born on the mining planet Demar to Hel’ferin and Dax’ionas Lightener.
His parents were employed by the Lant Mining Company and worked in the backbreaking mining and foundry complexes of the planet.
Jason and his brother spent much of their childhood running the lower levels of the mining complexes with the other children of financially oppressed miners and technicians. Most days were spent hunting the planet with blasters Jason had stolen and Xion had modified. They would hunt the dangerous indigenous cave dwelling predators of the planet, not only for the bounty placed on them by the company, but as a supplement to their families meager food allotments. Both brothers decided at an early age that in order to escape the life of a miner they would enlist in the Imperial Army as soon as they were eligible.
Jason’s first few years in the Army were spent in the expansion efforts of the Empire in the remote parts of the galaxy. His natural talent with weaponry and leadership allowed him to rise in rank relatively quickly. During this time he was offered a billet within the elite Stormtrooper Corps and was surprised to be assigned command of a team that his brother Xion was already a member of.
During a mission to Dantooine he and his team were tasked to assist Inquisitor Tremayne who told Jason he was in pursuit of a murderous deserter.
During a confrontation between Tremayne and this ‘deserter’ it became obvious to Jason and his brother that they had been lied to and manipulated by their superiors and the Inquisitor. The man they were tasked with hunting down was in fact a Jedi in hiding.
In a critical moment of confrontation between the Inquisitor and the Jedi, Jason ordered his team to guard an imaginary escape route while Xion sliced the communication relays the team used to coordinate with the Inquisitor. This left the Inquisitor alone and vulnerable. The diversion allowed the Jedi to injure the Inquisitor and escape, if only temporarily.
Knowing their betrayal would instantly be known by the Inquisitor the brothers quickly left Dantooine by taking a job as cargo-handlers and security aboard an outbound freighter. They had now became that which they thought they had been hunting, Imperial deserters.
They spent the next year traveling the galaxy, selling their skills aboard various merchant vessels. Jason used the same alias he’d used on Dantooine, his fathers name, Dax’ionas Lightener.
While working aboard a merchant ship commanded by Captain Tilings he was told by the captain that he’d taken a very lucrative job for a local Hutt on Tatooine to transport some cargo off-world. Dax’ionas would be guarding the cargo for transport to Nal Hutta.
When the crates arrived containing highly illicit and dangerous Disrupter rifles, and a Twi’lek in a cage, he was told not to ask questions.
His captain had no idea Dax’ionas was fluent in Ryl from some time spent on Ryloth during Imperial occupation. While the captive Twi’lek seemingly muttered to himself in his native tongue, he was actually explaining to Dax’ionas that he was a lieutenant of a powerful Hutt on Tatooine. He further explained that he had been charged with brokering a deal for this Hutts property when Capt. Tilings intercepted him. He suspected once they reached Nal Hutta he would be tortured for whatever information the rival Hutt found valuable and then killed. He further suspected that the cargo was likely to be used as some sort of leverage in a business dealing between the Tatooine Hutt and this same rival on Nal Hutta.
Dax’ionas had his brother slice into the Captains encrypted log files and learned that indeed the Twi’lek was telling the truth and they had yet again been lied to and manipulated.
With the help of his brother, and the Twi’lek, Dax’ionas took command of the ship, killing Captain Tilings in the process. He marooned the rest of the crew still loyal to the captain on Nar Shaddaa before helping the Twi’lek negotiate a better deal for the highly illegal rifles with their buyers, and returning the Twi’lek to Tatooine.
The Twi’lek, Dax’ionas and his brother, now had a shared secret neither party wanted the crime lord on Tatooine to have any knowledge of.
He had now become completely, that which in a previous life he thought he was hunting, a murderous deserter.
Tatooine appeared to be a good planet to hide out on, no one seemed to ask too many questions here. Both tired of running, and working for others, Dax’ionas and his brother changed their identities once more.
Too sentimental to let go completely of their family ties, and wanting to remind his new ‘friend’ the Twi’lek who had saved his skin, Daxion Twilight was born on Tatooine and, with a little help of his brother, now known as Jaferin Darklight, they both had local orphan histories and records that would stand up to any cursory examination.
With the help of his new underworld contacts he sold the ship on the black market for far less than it was worth, so as to keep any questions about it’s original owner to a minimum, but still enough that he and his brother could purchase a small repulsorlift repair shop with the proceeds. Renaming the shop ‘Twilight Motors’ it soon became a popular location for a local swoop gang to get their bikes repaired. Plus, with his Twi’lek ‘friend’ as a contact to the even seedier side of Tatooine (if there really is such a thing), he engaged in black market trading. The extra income kept the bills paid and the local constabulary out of his business, and more importantly to him, his history.
Eventually the jobs became bigger and required more security and transportation logistics than Daxion and Jaferin could manage alone, so they would cut the local bike club, Suns of Anchorhead, in on the take to help with those aspects of the job.
It wasn’t long before the brothers came to trust the Suns and they them. So much so that when asked to prospect for the club they agreed.
Now, a few years later, Daxion has risen to President of the local chapter…
Which is right about when the shit really starts to get weird…
