Strayit was an individual who served in the Imperial Navy of the Galactic Empire, eventually earning the rank of captain on board the vessel Marshall Awe. Whilst Strayit was captain, Zertik Strom served as a lieutenant on board the vessel and during a rebellion by the Poporov merchants of Armstiss, the lieutenant saved the captain's life. Strom took a blaster bolt intended for Strayit and then, ignoring the pain, grabbed the leader of the rebellious merchants and pushed a thermal detonator into his pants before throwing him off a cliff into a crowd of his followers. The subsequent explosion killed the vast majority of rebels along with most of their merchant stalls, with those left alive to afraid to rebel again. For his heroics, Strom was promoted to the position of First officer on board the starship Peacehawk.
Behind the scenesEdit
Strayit was first mentioned in the second part of Viva Space Vegas! The History of the Marvelous Wheel, an article released in 2013 on the StarWars.com Star Wars Blog and written by Abel G. Peña and Rich Handley. The article does not establish Strayit's species or gender and also does not make clear if the events involving him take place in the Rebellion era or the Rise of the Empire era.
