His Excellency, Lord Xyler Athrun Zero P.S. B.F. (born Xyllo Sebatyne) is a citizen and Premier of the Tresario Star Kingdom, a Tikiar and Gryphon.
Born in Year -10, after the fall of the Republic, Xyllo was born to the Sebatyne Clan on Barab I. His family—a traditional Barabel family of two females and two males along with their nest—was well known in their village as great hunters. From a young age, Xyllo was raised on the tales of legendary hunters and the noble Jedi. Though he had a particularly mischievous streak in him, he was one of the strongest of his hatch mates. He trained in hand to hand combat, projectile weapons, non-projectile, and unlike many of his species, had access to a starship that he could practice flying with. An excellent hunter, Xyllo strived for more than what he could find on Barab I. He sought to go on adventures like the Jedi he always heard stories about. Eventually, at the age of 17, he left his home and made his way to the major settlement on his planet. Walking weeks through the harsh weather of Barab I, he finally arrived, finding a bounty hunter who was willing to take him off planet. Upon leaving, Xyllo decided to forsake his Sebatyne name, taking the name Xyler Zero to signify leaving his home and family behind.
The hunter that took Xyler on his ship was impressed with his will to survive. The two made a bet on who could capture a target on the outer rim world they had arrived. Xyler was given a BD-1 Cutter vibro-ax by the hunter to help him. Xyler won the contest, and the hunter gave him a Firespray-class Interceptor which Xyler named the Magnum Opus. He then traveled across the outer rim for a year, fighting both as a bounty hunter and as a fighter in underworld fighting rings. He learned the name Red X, becoming a deadly melee combatant with his vibro-ax. However, he began to lose focus in life, unsure what to do. It was when he was in the Auril sector that he found out about the Tresario Star Kingdom. Seeing recruitment posters for Tresarian military and that the Kingdom had a close relationship with the Jedi Order, Xyler decided to put aside his life alone and sign up for the University of Tresario.

Tresario Star Kingdom
The Tresario Star Kingdom (also known as Tresario, Kingdom or abbreviated as TSK) is a sovereign government in the galaxy.
In the twilight days of the Sons and Daughters of Freedom and the Bounty Hunters Guild, its leader, Admiral Jesfa Ackmin, suffered a fatal heart attack. This left the leadership of the young group in the hands Falnor Urthadar. Mere days after taking control of the group, he announced the reformation of the Sons and Daughters of Freedom from a militaristic organization into a new government. He chose with his new power to name the new government after one of the chief houses in the Bounty Hunters Guild, House Tresario. Thus, the Tresario Star Kingdom was born on Year 9 Day 229, and Falnor Urthadar crowned himself as its first King.
Over the following weeks and months, Falnor pushed changes through the system of the government. He first created a parliament to help him lead and to create laws for the young government. His intent with the parliament was to make Tresario into a democracy. Leaders of the parliament began to pass laws and work to transform the Sons and Daughters of Freedom into the Tresario Star Kingdom. After few months, he dissolved it and created the system of the Hall of Ministers to be an advisory council to the King. This lead to the establishment of the three ministries, increasing the organizational structure of the Kingdom. The first Hall consisted of Steve Sphinx as Minister of Economic Development, Dek Sulare as Minister of Military Operations, Ara Tigranes as Minister of Governmental Affairs and Filithell Arborin as Hunt Master of the Bounty Hunters Guild. Falnor also began work on a new constitution for the Kingdom, in which certain members, including Minister Tigranes were high involved in. Meanwhile, as Falnor created his changes, the Kingdom began to suffer. Tresario began to have serious financial issues. Paychecks were low, there was little money to build, and recruitment was nearly nonexistent. (more...)
