Tam Posla was an interstellar lawman representing the Milvayne Authority who investigated claims of kidnapping, forced servitude, and surgical alteration of victims from the desert moon of Jedha, which resembled a rash of crimes on Milvayne attributed to a pair of visiting spacers using the suspected aliases of "Roofoo" and "Sawkee." Though taken off the case by his superior officer, Posla voyaged well beyond his jurisdiction and, determined to bring the criminals to justice, became a bounty hunter. He carried a modified BlasTech Industries DL-17 blaster rifle.
Tam Posla was a lawman of the Milvayne Authority, a law enforcement agency based on Milvayne. He worked on a case involving a series of crimes on Milvayne including kidnapping, forced servitude and surgical alteration, all thought to have been carried out by a pair of visitors to the world using the aliases Roofoo and Sawkee; in reality the criminals Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba.
Posla was taken off the case by his superior officer but learned of a similar string of crimes taking place in the streets of Jedha City on the moon Jedha. Determined to bring justice to the pair, Posla traveled well outside his jurisdiction and became a bounty hunter in order to track the duo down on Jedha.
Tam Posla covered his face with a black and white colored helmet marked with the symbol of the Milvayne Authority and equipped with a targeting array on an articulated stalk. He wore a brown padded jerkin and gray pants as well as black shoulder pads and brown gloves. He kept his Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate in a patch pocket on his pants and on his belt he carried a portable scanner array in a Electromagnetic pulse proof pouch. While on Jedha he was armed with a black DL-17 blaster rifle modified with an extended magazine and equipped with a long strap.
