Amaza Wahl was a corrupt Coruscanti law enforcement officer who took a plunge into the outer-rim. She has become a seasoned security officer employed by NSec on the smuggler's moon and unlike many of her colleagues, she's survived walking the streets of Nar Shaddaa.
Life Of A Crooked Official
Nar Shaddaa's wild west environment proved to be an excellent breeding ground for folk in Wahl's profession. The lack of regulation has resulted in massive security corporations dominating the planet as the sole form of law enforcement. Although these corporations provide bare protection to those who they are 'contracted' by, these business are no better than the gangs they keep out. It's a credit generating nightmare. Corporations like CorSec and NSec give their employees free reign to complete their work. They just want their bottom line to be met. The issue is that these collection schemes often conflict with each other, which can result in territorial wars with smuggling organizations, pirate gangs, and other corporations.

With all that in mind, Wahl has only survived as a seasoned security officer because she is an opportunist. At first, it was primarily luck not being scheduled to work on some of the harsher levels of the moon, but as she stayed with the company for a couple of years, she began to reap the liberty of seniority based assignments. Since then, she's been primarily picking to work in the trade regions. Starport and trade areas tend to be the safest areas to work because they exist deep within patrolled territory and even the most competitive organizations realize that damaging the peace in these havens results in losses down the road.
Wahl occassionally uses these heavily transited areas to abuse the 'status' of her employment. Alongside working collections for her firm, she takes bribes, plunders valuables, harasses travelers, and pressures vendors. She'll often be found complaining about the weather, how the corporation no longer pays for her equipment, and how she suffers from consistent bodily injury.
An Unpleasant Disposition
Wahl has a fairly consistent demeanor both on and off the job. The woman is direct and shows a clear distaste for flattery. It is not uncommon for her to appear condescending, impatient, or irritated. She is near impossible to impress, difficult to please, and troublesome to reconcile with. Her passive aggressive attitude is only amplified when she is in the presence of people she loathes to be around. Those who know best are cautious if she is acting overly pleasant as it typical of her to play nice when trying to exploit something. Her skepticism has no bounds, her internal monologue promoting a lingering tinge of paranoia even towards the people she knows best. This uncertainty in others can make interacting with her a chore. These qualities may have made her a decent investigator in the core and keep her safe in the outer-rim, but they hinder her ability to relax or form quality relationships.
"Just so I know, this how NSec is working these days?" Iollan asks with nothing so bold as an accusation.
"Officer discretion." Wahl responds with a smirk that screams foul play.
She often seems worn with a haphazard outward look. This can be employed as an advantage with proper posturing. The woman can make herself appear lazy if she wants to be an easy target or hardened when she is in a tough spot. More often than not, she tries to manipulate through trickery or intimidation. Persuasion was never her cup of tea. This attitude really shows when she attempts to gut people with a developed icy stare. The glare is just a simple downward tilt of the neck and a solid facial expression that she mastered over time. It's an expression that has been used to make even the kindest creatures feel as if they wronged her. When influence and exploit fails, Wahl has a reputation for pawning off the dirty work on others.
Outside of working as a security officer in a dangerous place, Wahl is a drinker and gambler. She's always looking for a new fix to toss some credits at, just in the sport of it. Surprisingly, regardless of how many enemies she seems to create with her day job and harsh demeanor, she has been able to muster a few working "friendships". Folk like Wahl are just an acquired taste.
Whether it be the vast amount of people she works with each day or the alcohol drilling holes in her brain, she has been known to consistently forget interactions with even the most important figures. She often errors on the side of caution with new people, intentionally avoiding introductions and evading personal questions. Those that know the woman a bit better are well aware that she tries her best to avoid lingering in areas dominated by other security corporations. She has had a couple of incidents where she has been harassed by officers of other employers. It's part of the territory war at the corporate level, but it extends as a barrier to her private interactions.
