this was one of Osaji Shimka's three triplet heirs, all of whom inherited an equal share of the Osaji Syndicate when their father was assassinated on Axum some three years before the Battle of Hoth. As part of their inheritance, each sibling received a pendant made of green stone, to identify them as members of the family. It was rumored that Osaji Varanes had been a sniper in the Imperial Army before "retiring" to help run the family business. He spent much of his time on the planet Tirahnn, where he had established a thriving import-export business that served as the center of the Osaji Syndicate's legitimate operations. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, all three brothers found themselves the objects of unwanted attention. They were all wanted for questioning by the Imperial authorities, and they were targetted for assassination by an unknown source. Whether good or bad, the freelance mercenaries were the first party to apprehend Oasji Varanes, eliminating him and capturing his assistant, Harn, who gave up information on the location of Osaji Uhares in exchange for his own life. Later, upon reaching Muskree and locating Osaji Hux, the mercenaries discovered that they had actually been hired by Osaji Hux herself, who simply wanted to eliminate and contention for control of the Osaji Syndicate.
