Joval Ryyk was a male human who served in the Stormtrooper Corps of the Galactic Empire. By the time of the blockade of the Anoat sector, Ryyk was a ten-year veteran of the Corps, and yet he did not feel any loyalty to his Empire or even his comrades in arms.
Several months into the blockade, Ryyk was recruited by the Smuggler, who sent him on a variety of missions across the sector. Although Ryyk was still a member of the Imperial military, he was willing to overlook anything the Smuggler asked him for the right price.
