Knave of Hearts
Balto Rin was able to simultaniously pay off debts and get his daughter Nessa off of Ryloth by selling her to Kalto the Hutt.
As a Hutt's slave, Nessa siezed every opertunity. She learned a variety of langueges and skills. She made friends with her Master's clients, building a network of connections.
The key to a lot of her sucess was Sabacc. Before she was old enough to 'entertain', she learned the game from the Hutt's gaurds. She would entertain them in return for lessons in piloting and the use of blasters. Later, she would sit on her master's guest's knee and blow on their dice, 'til it became known that she played a mean hand of Sabac herself, and became a prized opponent.
At 22--after six years as a dancing girl--Nessa won her freedom in a game of Sabacc with her master. After this event, she took the name, "Knave of Hearts," both because she liked it and because it was the high card in the straight flush of the winning hand. In the three years since, she has made some friends and traveled the galaxy as a free agent. It was after spending some time in the core worlds that the other wise happy-go-lucky girl was struck by the wrongness of the empire in this fashion: "I was slave to a hut for 10 years, a ruthless criminal who trafficed in addiction, missery, and violence. If I had angered him, he would have laughed while i was torn apart by pet his aklays. My life during that time was better, happier, and safer than that of any slave to the Empire I've ever encountered.
"The odds of a single girl making a diference in their lives by joining a band despeate, outgunned rebels are astronimcaly slim. But I'm feeling lucky today."

Bats: Go for Deadeye. That would contrast our character's fighting styles nicely.
Frag: Link is in the name. I'll switch Hyperdriven for Gambler and take VEhicular Combat. Skill Focus: pilot, too, if that won't cut too deep into your schtick.
