History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Khishuda was a whistlestop world for starships making the turn off of the Midway towards Usani and the Reft trade route. Aside from starport personnel, only a small community of a few individuals, usually transients, was ever established. After the Collapse, the world should have been completely depopulated, but the community refused evacuation.

Today only a single survivor, known only as "Blue Tom", is left alive to keep the starport operational. Blue Tom is in his seventies, but remains hale, and tirelessly maintains the port despite his age and the elements. The local free traders are strongly supportive of him, for reasons of both self interest and a genuine liking for the old man. Recently Regency government emissaries have begun negotiating with the old man for ownership of the port; reports indicate that he has resisted sale offers, and would prefer that he be left alone.
