Following the destruction of Cassus's original blastboat, the infamous "Firespray-S" following a collision on Kashyyyk. Cassus then devised, designed, and funded the building of the "Firespray-XS", which was a heavily armoured, and heavily-armed version of the classic Firespray design. Heavy and laden with weapons and shielding tech, the "-XS" was a slow, but solid, attack vessel. This was soon lost following an incident on the Ba'al Hammon, Lady Tanith's personal Eclipse-class Star Destroyer, when her ship's commander, Dalton, ordered the vessel be destroyed. Cassus later designed a combination blueprint, mixing the speed and stealth of the Firespray-S, with the heavy-weaponry and armour of the "-XS". This prototype, the "Firespray-XF", proved most successful, and was commissioned immediately by Clan Vhett.

History of Cassus Fett
- "You listen to Cassus Fett, and your son's sons will have nothing to do—because you'll have conquered everything!"
- ―Cassus Fett
The Early Days
Born on Concord Dawn to unknown Mandalorian parents, Jaing Fett and Isabet Gilamar, he was raised as a typical Mando. Trained by his mother and father in the arts of combat, by the age of 5 he had mastered many of their techniques, young even by Mandalorian standards.
A horde of Echani warriors raided the farm they lived on his sixth birthday. He was stowed in a secret cupboard as he watched his parents fight off the attackers. They fought bravely, and defeated several, however were overwhelmed and slaughtered mercilessly before him.
He lived wild for many years, practicing the techniques he had learned, teaching himself new ones from manuscripts and ancient scrolls his father had kept, and even inventing knew and more lethal ways of fighting hand-to-hand.
By the age of 12 he was a brutal, emotionless killing machine. Accepting a contract to settle a local feud between to warriors, as the one hired him to eliminate the other, he murdered both men, and stole their wares, including a Firespray-class attack craft, which over time he would heavily modify and improve.
The reasons for his aptitude for fighting became all the more apparent when a passing Jedi saw him fight in an underground illegal fighting ring, run by the Hutts, at the age of 13. Cassus faced 6 opponents, 5 he dispatched quickly, removing heads and slashing torsos in a flurry of attacks and parries. The final opponent however made contact with a hard hit, knocking Cassus to the ground. It was at this point that the Jedi sensed the ripple in the Force, as Cassus’s eyes turned yellow and he unleashed unbelievable attacks at his opponent, that could not be countered by a regular fighter.
The Jedi took Cassus to Coruscant, and trained him in the ways of the Jedi. During his training, he would return to Concord Dawn. On one such visit, he happened upon a small child roaming the forest. She reminded him of his own misfortune, as her family too had been brutally murdered before her eyes. Taking her in, clothing her, feeding her, training her in stealth and combat techniques, and also in the ways of the Force, she became known as Sabine Luella Vessler, and was given the role of Cassus’s personal bodyguard and spy.
The Jedi Mandalorian
Following many years, Cassus attained the rank of (Grand) Master, and was approached by Sa’ric Saban, who had recently formed the New Jedi Council.
It was in serving this council as Master Librarian to the Jedi, that he met, and later fell in love with, Mace Vos. As events unfolded, he assisted Jedi Master Dominus Lucius in forming the Way of the Jedi; helped in the liberation of Gamorr which led to the first neutral system, co-governed by the NJO and NSO under Lord Mendacious; defended the temple of Haruun Kal from attack by Caoimhin’s evil clone Lord Vilus, who subsequently killed Cassus by detonating the rocket on his back. Cassus sacrificed himself to save Cao and the temple’s younglings.
Cao took his burnt body to Concord Dawn, where he buried him in a mass grave as was customary. The grave, having recently been filled with bodies from the Vong wars, was awash with residual Force energies. The Force clearly deciding it was not his time yet, brought Cassus back to life, although in a feral state as he roamed the cliff-tops, naked and animal-like. It was only the interventions of Mace and her Kiffu warriors that brought him back to normality.
Cassus left the NJO some time later, following a rift with the NJO Grand Master Sa’ric, and a clear statement from Mace that his advances were not to be reciprocated. He spent much of his time back home on Concord Dawn, drinking tihaar by the keg.
Birth of an Empire
It was only the intervention of the Mandalorian Empire that brought him back. Prudii Sikirta’s nomination put Cassus in the running to be Mand’alor. In direct competition with Talon Darknight, the two men put forward their case, both seemingly striving for the same thing; the return to glory of the Mandalorian Empire. Cassus won the election, and was pronounced Mandalore the Liberator shortly after.
His reign brought much structure back to the Empire. Appointing Talon his solyc’verd (2nd in command), and Kianat Tray as Admiral of the Fleet, the three organised the Empire into an efficiently ruthless regime. Forging alliances with all around them, they feared none, and were respected by all. He even discovered a blood brother, Kylarn Fett, embracing him into the Mando fold, and giving him the position of Head of Intelligence.
Their plans came crashing down however, as Grand Moff Cygnus of the NSO stabbed Cassus in the back on Geonosis, when he ordered the NSO fleet attack the Mandalorians. Cassus was planet-side alone with Sabine, as he agreed to enter a peaceful negotiation, when the attack came. It was only thanks to the efforts of Herder and his MESF, and Gwyn, that ensured Cassus’s survival that day.
Times were becoming tougher still, as he forged a permanent alliance with the Warriors of the Iron Fist, and more specifically their Queen, Aria Concordia. Their rapport was instant, and they had planned much for the future, however bad news followed, as it was revealed his own brother Kylarn plotted against the Empire, and against him. Feral Ragnos, Sith’ari to the SSS, had also become an enemy, as he heard rumour of a relationship between Cassus and his own fiancée Lady Tanith.
In attempt to divert attentions from the Empire, and to himself alone, he resigned as Mand’alor, and sought exile. Becoming engaged to Aria, and hunting the traitors to the Empire, led him to an brief and explosive battle with Lord Piteos, who was a friend and fellow Mandalorian. The result of the duel, leading to the decapitation of Piteos.
Cassus then spent his days searching for Aria, who had gone missing following a run-in with Feral, whilst similarly hunting the remaining traitors. However, reconciling his differences with his brother Kylarn, and the other two traitors seemingly in exile, all with the Mandalorians seemed well, until Rukia, the twisted daughter of Lord Carisson, sought to claim the position of Mand’alor as her own, and to bring destruction to all who opposed her; seemingly hell-bent on exacting revenge upon Cassus and his family. It was also around this time he met with Tolo, and the pair of the ran the "Hard Contact" bar on Mandalore.
Before long, Aria returned, unscathed, and they married on Manaan. Following the ceremony, the Mandalorian Empire began showing signs of strife, and Cassus decided it best that he return as Mand’alor to take control once more, and redirect the Empire to glory again, whilst similarly joining the Order of Seven, headed by a reanimated Zenchou Piteos, as the Samurai Toukon of Light.
Mandalore the Liberator returns
Following the birth of his son Jaro Silas Fett, and the destruction of Rukia's hordes, he then laid plans in action as he re-structured the Mandalorian Empire, and trained his two apprentices; Orodreth and Darth Sandral.
Darth Sandral very quickly became power-hungry, and following frequent run-ins with Aria, took it upon herself to leave Cassus' tutelage. Forming her own Empire, she planned a war against the Mandalorians she felt had wronged her, enlisting the aid of Canderous, Necrosis, and several other opposers to Cassus' reign. The war was short-lived, as the overwhelming forces and allies of the Empire annihilated the enemies. Lord Canderous sticking the knife in at the crucial moment in ordering Sandral's fleet to self-destruct. Sandral barely escaped with her life, and still haunts Aria and Cassus with her threats to this day.
Falling to Darkness
Much friction ensued following the war, between Aria and Cassus. Times were hard for them both, and following damning information Cassus received from an unknown source, it was clear in his eyes, that she no longer loved or respected him. This turmoil erupted into a split, leading to Cassus' near-death following a self-imposed severance from the Force and an incident on Kashyyyk. Rescued by his brother Kylarn however, he was saved from certain death, though at a cost.
His darkness had led him to a broken mind and heart, which had turned him into a twisted, evil and bitter soul. Reviving early in the bacta tank, he left its healing 2 days early, leaving him twisted, burnt and in a state of constant fury. His physical disfigurements forced him to require machines to aid his breathing. Adapting his armour to accomodate such, and painting it black, along with his helmet, he also wore a black hooded robe, masking his appearance (basically he was Vader in looks and sound, but with a hood and a Mandalorian helmet!).
Following his quick resignation as Mand'alor, transferring the Helmet to Kylarn to take over, he made a trip to Aria's ship, the Talyc Verd, where he would meet one last time with his son. They talked as father and son should, and he even gave Jaro a gift in his own first two shotosabers from when he was a child. However the atmosphere quickly deteriorated as a conflict with Rhitta evolved. Cassus lost control of his emotions, the darkness consuming him fully once more, and the beginnings of a duel began with Aria.
Zenchou Piteos arrived, and with an unknown crystal of ungodly power, he re-connected Cassus with the Force once more. The fight raged on as Aria attempted to win Cassus round, but his heart and mind had blackened to the core and he pressed on with his relentless attack. After a struggle, his saber ripped her open at the gut, her injury so severe it would almost kill her. Unfortunately, it took this final occurence for Cassus to understand what he had evolved into. Shutting down his sabers and submitting himself in sacrifice for the good of the Galaxy and his family, before Kylarn shot him 6 times in the back at close-quarters, killing him.
A brief period of absence created a void in his families hearts, though things were far from over. Attempting to force his way back to the land of the leaving, through Aria, his darkness consumed her, tormented her, as he projected thousands of voices into her mind, and revealed his anguish at the hell he suffered in this limbo of souls. Using Sith Alchemy, she unwittingly summoned him back, darker and more malicious than ever, he was now totally consumed in the rage that had taken him. He concocted an evil and twisted plan, to make her fall to his side, so as a family they may dominate the Galaxy under the threat of terror.
White pawn takes Black knight
Aria revealed herself soon after to be pregnant with their second son, a fact she had kept hidden through a form of body manipulation. It was during times of weakness and stress, all brought on by his dark presence and imposing will on her, that Raan, during one of his attempts to keep Aria alive, revealed to Cassus that his family would be destroyed by the darkness he brought upon them. A fact Aria confirmed, and the revelation helped drag Cassus back to the Light, renouncing the evil to safe his family, though he knew it would eventually cost him his life, it was a sacrifice he was willing to make in order to keep them.
Deciding to distance himself from the now-squabbling Mandalorians, he resurrected Clan Vhett and united his family under one banner. Kylarn and himself serving together as mercenaries for hire. He was content to revert to his skills of old for now. However the peace was short-lived, as Aria spearheaded a siege on Kashyyyk which saw the destruction of the Sith Academy, and brought out the murderous rage of Cassus’ old foe, Feral Ragnos. Now, with Feral seeking revenge against his former apprentice, Aria, and even more so by threatening Jaro and their unborn son Davin Myles Fett, Cassus was set on-edge, and Aria secretly battled against the strains.
Aria finally gave birth to Davin, however the celebration was short-lived, as the newborn child died, weakened from the stress he suffered during the pregnancy. Now, blaming himself entirely for the darkness he had brought to his family, and seeking ratification in hunting Feral, to bring peace to the Galaxy, and hopefully quench the pain in his heart.
The Pain of Loss
During his hunt for the ever-elusive Feral, things back home were turning bad to worse for the Fett's. Aria, tortured by the memories of their lost son, falls victim to an old suitor of hers, Darth Apollyon Angelabyss, also a bitter rival of Cassus. The pair had fought many times in tournament, and neither found true victoru over the other. Whilst his captive, Aria's mind deteriorates, and she falls for the sorcerer's spells. Allowing him to lie with her, she falls pregnant with the Sith's spawn. On learning this, Cassus becomes enraged, and leaves his current quest for Feral, in order to bring justice to Apollyon.
However, once more on his journey, his wife struggles to deal with all she has endured, and finds herself falling for the charms of others. Cassus, unable to rectify things with his now estranged wife, and wracked by despair, decides divorce is the only option for them. However, his bitter resentment for her affairs, brings him a decision that would inflict a lasting and painful blow to Aria, a condition of the divorce, is to hand over full custodial rights over their son Jaro, to him. She signs, and they part, never to cross path again. Cassus, a broken man, takes his son to Dathomir, to stay with one who had always been a sympathetic friend in the past; Lady Tanith Desaevio.
