I wanted to make a Gunslinger so that I might eventually provide all you dual-blaster space cowboys with some tips and such, but I wasn't quite ready to revisit the Smuggler storyline.
So I turned to the Smuggler mirror class and created an Imperial Agent.
While I still (of course) prefer the Smuggler, I'm hoping this will allow me to provide extra insight to our favorite class and reach out to a larger audience without boring myself.
Now, who knows where I got the name "Kir" from? No googling!
