You lost all or nearly all your credits and material possessions. Perhaps you were blackmailed by a COMPNOR agent who found out that you had a relative with Rebel sympathies, or maybe Imperial Intelligence seized your finances and assets as a part of a larger investigation that had nothing to do with you. Regardless, the event unjustly robbed you of your worldly possessions and reduced you to abject poverty, leaving you with nothing but your drive to recover your life and punish those who made you destitute.
As a result of being nearly impoverished, you can use the Survival Skill to sustain yourself in urban or civilized environments. See the Basic Survival application of the Survival Skill for more information.
