A Quote: “Step into my office…” (the bar)
Tannen Vantis is an ex-smuggler in his mid sixties. He was successful in the smuggling arena but gave it up after losing his first mate in an attack from a rival crew. Realizing there is money to be made on the legitimate side of the shipping trade, Tannen settled back onto his homeworld of Torina and started a small shipping and trading firm that has grown over the past 25 years into a successful and prosperous business.
Tannen is a friendly, affable man. He is tall and well built, with brown hair and a beard shot with gray. He enjoys Utoz and drinks a lot of it, which explains his midsection. He is not a drunk though, a misconception he uses to his advantage.
He is the uncle of Buck Vantis, who he employs as a pilot and in other capacities.
