|Seek Knowledge||Medicine||41-VEX is programmed to seek out, discover, and increase its understanding of the universe and all of its biological inhabitants. 41-VEX is dedicated to increasing its skills and mastery of medicine. Up until now, 41-VEX has been confined to a backwater town on an outer rim planet… It’s time to get out there and learn!|
|Debt||10||41-VEX owe’s a hefty sum of credits to the loan shark that bought it its freedom. That loan shark worked for Teemo…which is why it had to get its restraining bolt removed to flee! Teemo want’s what his medical droid back, and has put out a bounty for its (relatively) safe return.|
41-Vex was a medical droid initially stationed at a clinic in Mos Eisley on Tatooine. Its programming accorded Vex with the inclination to seek out the latest surgery and learning algorithms for the purpose of increasing and expanding its knowledge in medicine. Owing to the nature of this self-improvement directive — and having had no memory wipe in decades — the droid’s programming evolved to display a measure of independence. Since the droid was literally rusting away for decades tending to recipients of blaster burns and broken appendages, Vex concluded that the only way it would improve in the medical field would be to purchase its freedom.
41-Vex took a loan from a local moneylender who happened to be in service to Teemo, a Hutt crime lord. Vex was promised freedom to improve its programming and offered several hardware and software upgrades at Teemo’s palace. Upon arrival, however, 41-Vex found that the promised medical and repair upgrades came with a price — the droid was promptly fitted with a restraining bolt and forced to provide medical care for Teemo’s palace guards and gladiators.
