Personality: Sariss is a smart, strong willed, and cunning individual. She is very skilled at seeing outside the box and viewing problems at multiple angles. Sariss has many friends, but also believes in the old adage "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."
Born on Trandosha, Sariss was the daughter of Senator Tarahg, and was from an early age predisposed towards a life of politics, wealth, and privelege. Sariss enjoyed a spoiled childhood and went on to higher learning at the University of Coruscant. It was there that she began to see things in a larger light. From that point on, she endeavoured to look beyond the constraints of popular opinion, and to see things how they 'realy' were.
Her first act as a college graduate was to stage a protest of Wookiee descrimination on her homeworld. As could be expected, her efforts did little to gain her people's support, but she did gain the eye of Kashyyyk. During the next Senatorial election, she won the vote for the Mytaranor Sector, largely to the support of the Wookiees on Kashyyyk and her continued efforts of ending Wookiee descrimination and slaving. True to her campaign promise, she cracked down on slaving operations in the sector and actually wiped out the Mytaranor Slaving Council. In return, she managed to get Kashyyyk to sign several lucrative trading deals with the Tapani Sector. Later, the Tapani Sector would use its pull and wealth to get Sariss into the lime light in Coruscanti political circles. In just a few years she manipulated the strings of politics to place herself as a major player.
Eventually Sariss gained enough support and backing to be chosen by the Chief of State Kas Haan to serve as Minister of State. Haan was well aware of her sharp and manipulative political abilities, but he was impressed with her strength of character. As dangerous as politicians could be, Sariss was as deadly as they came, but she was also too powerful of an asset to be ignored. By having her on his side, he felt he could accomplish great things. What he didn't realize was that Sariss had a mind of her own and was not one to be played with by others.
Likes: Getting things her way, seeing plans succeed, and politics
Dislikes: Naive politicians who gain their status through wealth without any skill for the 'game.' She also dislikes her own people and their thoughtless feud with the Wookiees. In turn, she has a general hatred toward slavers.
Strengths: Intelligent, open minded, observant, and skilled at thinking ahead.
Weaknesses: She can be stubborn about getting her way and seeing her plans through, even when it's detrimental to her. Her manipulative reputation causes some to withhold their trust.
Fears: She has nightmares of being eaten as a child by other Trandoshans.
