Only problem with that is how hard the Sand People's language is to speak and learn :/

Twi'leks are a more 'Alien' looking race, yes they speak common but they're more unique looking compared to say a Miraluka or Zabraak.

Cos they're giant, loud and hairy. Not a good fit for this character's personality.7

A jawa...didn't someone pick one already. If not, I may pick one for fun.

Tempting, tempting, but I was actually thinking of a shy, quiet, passive/wussy little guy with a HUGE hero complex for Eward.

A mad scientist may be simpler to set up but I feel I've played the "mad genius" to death a little. I think I'll just go for the Investigator Jawa. Thanks.

How could you hate Jawas? Ignoring the fact that in-universe, they apparently stink and look like rat-people, from the first impression in the movie, they're adorable.

She hates the Tusken Raiders, not Jawas.

If you look at my CS I'm already playing a passive, tiny jedi who uses the force rather than his lightsaber.

So, If I'm reading this right, you are going to start this out, most player are locked in a deathtrap dungeon?

Because that gives me some awesome ideas of dumping a bunch of sith and jedi together (Namely mine and some others) and making it clear that they need to work together to get out.

Oh yeah, I was meaning to ask that... But we can play as the "bad guys" right? I've never done that before and I'd like to try it.

EDIT: Stupid question, why else would there be a affiliation option?

Name: Kachku
Age: 23 equivalent?
Gender: Female
Species: Rattataki
Appearance: Image

Creed:SITH

Affiliation: Empire

Personality: Doing things. Getting things done. as long as it allows Kachku to utilize her abilities, she likes doing it. most of the time it involves her master sending her to investigate tombs, or track down cowards, but every so often, she'll have to shock the answer out of someone. She has a hard time tolerating anyone that has not proven themselves not stupid, and is quick to let them know the fact, unless they happen to be in a position of power she cannot match, which generally descends into either her deriding their efforts as they prove themselves stupid, or holding her words until such time as she finds a weakness.

Motivation: Power, more and more. Legions of soldiers in a Grand Inquisition of the Galaxy.

History: Born into slavery to the Sith empire, Kachku's first rational thought was of how much she HATED her masters. She seethed with it through her formative years, keeping it to herself, but there were moments that it would slip through, and she would find herself unable to stop the font of hatred that spilled forth. While this eventually was tempered and attributed to the sarcastic contempt she holds for everyone around her, it also brought her beatings for impertinence.

The day after she would be fully realized as an adult of her people, one handler stepped a bit too far, and her rage spilled forth in cutting, angry, loud insults of everything from his parentage to his contributions to the local red light district. The beating she recieved was the worst she'd had as the officer she had insulted lashed out in his own rage. At the last, she pushed past a mental block and with no idea what she was doing, she lashed out with thick streamers of electricity, flaying the man alive right in front of her. The other officers had surrounded her, weapons ready, but as luck would have it, a Sith Lord had been present for her little display and stopped them. Intrigued by the sheer malice and cruelty displayed as the man had been melted into an unrecognizable pile of slag, she took the young Rattataki and tossed her into the harsh trials on Korriban.

A month later, Kachku killed her overseer, murdered the last candidate other than herself, and presented herself to Lord Zash as her apprentice. Thus began Kachku's service under the Empire.

Rank: Acolyte? (I'm basing this off the Sith Sorceror I'm playing right now.)

Class: Inquisitor/Sorceror? (I personally describe it as Tesla Coil of DOOOOOM)

Color of Lightsaber: RED

Type of lightsaber: One-handed

Combat style: A combination of Soresu and Djem So/Shien

Force powers:
Telekinesis
Lightning (As I described it before, Tesla Coil of DOOOM)
Ability reinforcement (Running faster, Jumping higher)

The personality is a bit vague. She seems to be more of just a "getting things done" sort of person. :/ Why not mention her temper or need for power?

Also, I wouldn't mind more detailed descriptions for her Force powers.

Name: Lahn Varsis
Age: 37
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Appearance: Lahn is a ruggedly handsome looking human in many respects, he has a chiseled jaw, golden brown stubble, messy shoulder length hair that looks fairly un kept, and is built somewhat sturdier than most Jedi. He is a tall and broad shouldered man, standing at 6'2'' and looks to weigh somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 pounds. Lahn has emerald green eyes, however the left one is covered with a black cloth like an eye patch. There are no visible scars on his face, so it is unknown whether or not he actually lost it sometime in combat. At first glance from his size and appearance it could be said that he is a rather intimidating looking person, however he seems to usually give off a calming or peaceful feel to those who are around him. He usually has a friendly expression upon his face, always smiling and cheerful. Lahn isn't afraid to show his emotions through his expressions and posture, in fact it seems like he's almost overly and intentionally projecting any emotion that he's feeling at the moment. When he's happy, he looks really happy, when he's sad he looks really sad... no matter what emotion it is, all those around him are able to easily pick up on it through the way he's carrying himself.

Lahn wears clothing similar to the traditional style that most jedi/sith normally wear, consisting of loose robes and a large hooded cloak. One major difference is the various tones of blue that he chooses to wear as opposed to the brown or black of most sith/jedi. His cloak is a much darker shade, a navy blue color while his robes are much lighter shades of blue. Lahn's belt is also a bit different from traditional standards, it is a bit wider to allow for the various lightsabers that he carries with him to be hooked onto special attachments. There is a little trick to removing the lightsabers from Lahn's belt to prevent others from simply 'borrowing' any of his weapons. He carries a total of eight lightsabers on his belt and one more hidden in each sleeve, totaling at ten for most occasions. Lahn does have other straps available to him that would allow him to carry more if he ever felt it necessary to have more than ten on him at a time.

Creed: Gray Jedi
Affiliation: Neutral
Personality: If Lahn's personality could be summarized into a single word, it would most definitely be 'strange'. Not only is his personality strange for that of a force user, he's also someone who seems out of place no matter where he is. He is the kind of person who openly expresses his emotions in very blunt and obvious ways. For the most part he is a very cheerful and fun loving person who enjoys having a good time with other people. He laughs boisterously after funny jokes, smiles widely in situations that sometimes are a bit inappropriate, and he has an incredibly twisted mischievous side. He's usually seen as a good hearted person, however there are most certainly times where he finds himself in situations where he needs to change his tone quite a bit. Though these situations are quite rare, his rage can sometimes come spilling out of him like a volcano, seemingly unprovoked at times but only lasting for the briefest of moments. No matter what emotion it is that Lahn is expressing, it always comes off as being too over the top or forced, almost as if he's trying to purposefully exhibit such strong emotions.

Motivation: To gain extensive knowledge of both the dark and light side of the force.
History: : Lahn's force capability was discovered fairly early in his life due to his family being from Coruscant. He was found as a young child and was almost immediately taken in to begin his training to become a Jedi. It quickly became obvious that his focus was exceptional, allowing him to learn the basics of the force and put him at the top of his class. Patient in battle, impeccable focus, and showed ingenuity in all aspects of the way he used his abilities, it was no surprise that Lahn was chosen as a padawan earlier than most others. Once again Lahn showed prowess under the tutelage of his female master Vella Driet, obediently following her instructions in the ways of the force.

Lahn and his master became rather well accredited in their accomplishments amongst the Jedi order, they were a perfect pair that were able to carry out missions without fail. This lasted for a few years but their success was halted by an encounter with a powerful sith lord and his apprentice. Lahn was able to defeat the sith apprentice, however his master was not as fortunate. He arrived at the scene a few moments after the sith lord had struck his master down and immediately engaged him in combat. For a moment Lahn's intense focus was broken and he attacked the sith lord full of rage over his fallen master. Exhausted from his fight with the sith apprentice, Lahn was soundly defeated by the sith. However the lord decided to spare Lahn's life, sensing the young man's potential to fall to the dark side during their fight.

The sith lord took Lahn with the intent of breaking him and molding him into his new apprentice. It was during this time that Lahn's focus with the force was put to the test. He was tortured daily and forced to do horrific things. It took some time, but at some point Lahn seemed to lose himself and completely embrace the call of the dark side. He had now officially become the sith lord's apprentice, completely following his every command and learning the ways of the dark side from the powerful lord. No one is quite sure what happened next, but it is clear that at some point during their travels the sith lord was killed. Whether it was by Lahn's hand or another's is something that only he knows. After the death of the sith lord Lahn seemed to drop off the face of the galaxy for a year, only to return to Coruscant one day as he is now, a gray Jedi who's intentions are unclear and presence is completely concealed in the force.

After his return Lahn began to 'stalk' other Jedi and Sith around the galaxy, following them around in secret while observing the ways that they used the force. He would follow a new pair of master and apprentice from time to time, each time he would attempt to steal one of their lightsabers before he would move on. Normally he would do this while their guard was lowered, while they slept or otherwise, sometimes he was successful but other times he would be forced to make a hasty and embarrassing retreat. Lahn seems to be completely aloof to all the matters within the Galaxy, and only focuses on learning more fundamentals on how people use the force.

Theme: (Does not need to be included, but just for fun :3)

Color of Lightsaber: Various, carries 10+ on his person at all times.
Type of lightsaber: One Handed (With modified safety features so that the lightsabers can stay on when thrown without force assistance. Also internal activation switches to prevent other force users from easily turning on his lightsabers)

Combat style: Tràkata and Jar'Kai/Niman (Lahn's primary strength lies in his combat capabilities with multiple lightsabers. His style in particular relies heavily on feints, surprise, and flashy movements. Whether it's turning off a lightsaber, dropping, throwing, spinning, or otherwise, Lahn is very capable when it comes to keeping track of multiple lightsabers at a single time and uses this to his advantage. Though he can not actually wield his many lightsabers with telekinesis alone, he does occasionally use it to guide the movements of or remotely activate/de-activate his weapons, effectively adding to his natural physical capabilities with lightsabers.)

Force powers: Lahn can use the basic force powers such as push/pull, jump, speed and mind trick with some skill. However the force powers that he uses exceptionally well are force throw and force stealth. It also should be said that during his travels Lahn has learned the fundamentals of how to use various unique force powers, he cannot use these powers himself but instead knows intimately the theories and emotions behind those abilities.
