The Anti-Party Member

Well, I had a great session last night. We play the Star Wars RPG in the late Rise of the Empire era (4 years after Episode III), and the campaign has been going since mid-fall. I had been playing a Feeorin Antarian Ranger; Feeorins are Nym's species from Star Wars: Starfighter, and the Antarian Rangers were like special forces/scouts/survival experts dedicated to acting as a resource for the Jedi. Anyways, long story short, we stumbled across an ancient store of Jedi and Sith artifacts, and accidentally unleashed a Sith Lord's trapped spirit. The spirit began attacking the Jedi Padawan of the party, and trying to possess him (the player was leaving for a couple of weeks and I think the GM wanted to turn him into an NPC for the time he was gone). Well, being the loyal and devoted Antarian Ranger he was, Solm (my char) offered himself up to the Sith Spirit in exchange for the Padawan's life. He accepted, but I hid something from the Sith Spirit; just before I was being taken over by the spirit, I set my blaster to overload. Once the Sith took control of Solm's body, he got one round to attack the party before the blaster exploded. Solm died, and took the Sith spirit, still unaccustomed to Solm's body, with him.

So it was time to roll up a new character, but I threw my GM another curveball. I created a Ryn bounty hunter who was out to collect the bounty on the party. So, I infiltrated the group for a couple of sessions, but last night things exploded in my face. Through sheer luck, the party discovered that the friendly treasure hunter who just arrived in the party was actually a low-profile bounty hunter. They tried running (I mean, really, it's not like the 4 other characters couldn't have taken me down! sheesh), but I partially completed my mission. The party is now scattered to the four winds: the noble is stranded on Alderaan, forced to flee with refugees when his ship was destroyed by my employers; the slicer managed to limp back to the world we had been based on in his Y-Wing, only to find that me and the Empire had already been there and left by several days; the Jedi Padawan is fleeing the Star Destroyer Interrogator, which carries my bounty hunter and a certain High Inquisitor (props if anyone can guess who); the pilot and her Hoojib companion are with the Jedi. The noble and the slicer have no idea where anyone else is; they're essentially on their own. The Jedi, the pilot, the Hoojib, and an NPC Antarian Ranger named Rolrrothrra (Wookiee) are fleeing into unknown parts, with an Imperial Inquisitor in hot pursuit. I did my job well.

I'm going to continue playing the bounty hunter character, but working against the party with the Empire. The other players are cool with it; heck, they really think it's neat and are enjoying trying to outsmart me. Has anyone else had any similar experiences?
