.....then Jag will die dramatically in Jaina's arms and she'll blame Han for the rest of her life. Leia will watch as what's left of her family is torn apart. Then Vestara and Ben will fall in love and accuse Luke of trying to stand in the way of their happiness. Wink

Oh yeah. It would actually be very predictable. Wink

Perhaps we should take action and start a hostel takeover of Del Rey before they can commit such horrors. Wink

I loved Jaina since NJO. she is the reason I got into the books.
she's strong and brave and determined ! and like my idol, lol ^____^ It's cool she wants to be her own person, and not her mother or father.
but I hope she will inherit the Falcon ^^

I like her less in LotF because what happened to her always able to taking care of herself ? I'm disappointed she was written that Boba Fett can call her spoilt and never done a day's work to her face, and not have a bloody nose.
She was in the front lines of the last two major wars and saved many lives !

I'm so happy to see Jaina get back to her fiesty self in FotJ. ^____^
and glad she will finally settle down... even if I don't like Jag, well I like him more in FotJ. I hope he doesn't die and more heartbreak for Jaina. Give her a break Del Rey ! She will hopefully finally have happiness.

I can't remember, how did Golden handle Jaina in Omen? That would be a pretty good indicator of what to expect in Allies. She helped take down some crazy Jedi didn't she?

Yes, but I still think she's been criminally underused!! She has so much more potential. I have yet to read Vortex and Conviction, therefore i cant discussion her character in those two, so lets take a trip back to LOTF! How would you guys have reacted if it was Jaina who went to the dark side over Jacen?

That......probably would have been even worse than Jacen's fall.

And I agree that Jaina has been completely underused in FotJ.

Jaina's role in LotF caught me completely off guard. She was ignored for most of the series and then she was made the most important character in it! Confused

That would have made slightly more sense and been more interesting in there being two female Sith, as the Sith are almost entirely male dominated through Star Wars.

Plus Jacen would have resolved the situation without killing her, unless he was JINO.

Totally agree that Jaina is criminally underused and criminally written most of the time.
We need Zahn -- who seems to get writing strong female characters to write a Jaina novel.

Favorite Jaina novel: Dark Journey or as I like to call it, Jaina Gets PMS.

Seriously, folks, not my favorite Jaina novel.

I always liked her best early NJO.

Criminally underused and, as Cerrinea said, criminally written. I'd had the feeling, in FOTJ, that she was being defined by a single characteristic or emotion - most often anger. Or, more accurately, a short temper - in any given situation. Though she did feel more rounded in Conviction.

I really wish Darkmeld wouldn't have gotten stopped so soon. That was really cool and it fit Jaina's character really well. At least it would've given her something cool to do instead of just being Jag's on-again, off-again fiance. Rolling Eyes
