I approve, but does anyone notice that the majority of us have had our character's parents killed?

The only thing I would change is the lightsaber. I know you don't have to be a Force-User to have one, but I still don't like the idea.

Could you possibly be more descriptive as to why you don't like the idea? If the lightsaber is a problem I won't have a problem getting rid of it.

Karis uses the blaster for fighting. The lightsaber is more of a big pocket knife, used for things like cutting through doors.

I vote in favor of BlueX's character. Very Happy

Name: Magenta Marr (Female Human)
Age: 27
Class: Mercenary
Weapons: Vibrosword, WESTAR-M5 Blaster Rifle, DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol, Dagger.
Appearance: Long, red hair, dark green eyes, 6'1, scar down her back, black jumpsuit, weapons belt.
Other: Magenta was born on Coruscant and lived with her parents and older brother, Cane. When she was seventeen, Cane was killed by a mysterious assassin. Grief stricken, she wanted to seek revenge, but knew that with her low grade combat skills, she would probably die without succeeding in her mission. Her best friend, Ursa, who was a bounty hunter, offered to train her, and Magenta eagerly accepted.

After a few months, she deemed herself ready to face the assassin. It took her six months, but she finally found the killer on Corellia. They fought viciously, and the duel eventually led to the top of a skyscraper. At the end of the fight, Magenta had the drop on the assassin, so she took her chance to stab him with the dagger her brother Cade had given her, killing him almost instantly. She disposed of the body by throwing it off the top of the building, her lust for vengeance finally being fulfilled. After that, she traveled the galaxy, never staying in one place too long, but occasionally visiting her parents on Coruscant. Magenta often took jobs as a mercenary to earn money, and the best thing about that was she not only enjoyed the jobs - but she got paid for them too.

I finally have it posted! Now I need to decide on a ship....

I vote in favor of MizzeOH's character.

As I read your character's bio when I got to the part about the fight on the skyscraper in Corellia I thought "gee a voice over of Ian McKellan's lines as Gandalf from The Two Towers could fit right in here ('From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak I fought with the Balrog of Morgoth... Until at last I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountain side')" Just thought it was kind of funny.

Lol, I haven't watched the LOTR movies for awhile now, so the similarity wasn't on purpose. But that is funny. Laughing

@Jedi_Christopher
Actually only one other accepted bio has mentioned that their parents are dead, and that was yours, thus I really wouldn't say the majority has dead parents. So I don't see that as a problem.

Also I approve of MizzeeOH's character Magenta Marr.

As for the lightsaber issue with Karis Jorvin(BlueX-wingPilot) I personally don't have a problem with it. After the purge lightsabers became valued objects. There would be around 10,000 of them floating around I imagine. However I seem to remember there being a mini lightsaber, much like a dagger that was actually commercially available. I think it was used in side trip by Corran Horn to escape from jail. They work like lightsabers in that they can cut through a lot of things but at the same time are brittle or unstable and prone to breaking. I'll scan wookieepedia to see if I can find it.

I don't see a problem with Reepicheep's character, so I guess I'll go ahead and vote for him. The only thing I would change about him is maybe give him a proper name and have Inferno be a nickname everyone calls him.

Sure thing. I was just kind of in a hurry. I'll update it as soon as I can think up a name.

Here's a re-cap on all of our characters. I think we've reached the cutoff point, so everyone who hasn't posted a character yet might just have to wait till the next RPG. This one has been in planning a long time now...

Name: Adenn Kad
Age: 24
Class: Pilot, Hand to Hand combat specialist
Weapon: Duel modified DL-44 blasters, vibroknife
Appearance: 6'0 feet tall, wiry muscular build. Brown medium-length hair streaked with blond undertones. Left arm is a prosthetic.
Wears: Green Mandalorian battle armour.
Other: The son of a dead Mandalorian commando, Adenn had no knowledge of his heritage other than the suit of armour he scrounged from his dead father's body. Adenn grew up the foster child of a wealthy Corascanti family before training as a pilot in the New Republic navy, a career that was cut short after Adenn was shot down above Fresia and left for dead. Adenn survived the horrific crash, but he lost his left arm and was deemed unable to fly starfighters. Adenn resigned from the military and lived the life of a bounty hunter and mercenary.


Name: Saul Razaar
Age: 28
Class: Mercenary and Pilot
Weapons: Custom Baragwin assault rifle, heavy Arkanian blaster, combat knife
Appearance: Human-like, brown hair kept in short military style crew cut. Height 5'9.
Wears: Ailon Nova Guard armor. In top physical shape. Originally from the planet Alion.
Other: Saul was born into the warrior heritage of the Alion Nova Guard, a group so respected that it was often compared to the Mandalorians and the Emperor's Royal Guard. He fought as a mercenary during the Galactic Civil War working for the Empire. Participating in numerous suicide missions, he defied fate and returned alive every time. After the Battle of Endor, the Alion Nova Guard turned against the Empire and began working to eliminate remaining Imperial holdouts. Eventually Saul left the Guard and went to work as a freelance mercenary, going where ever the action was.


Name: Keenen Ackbar
Age: 37
Class: Mercenary and Pilot
Weapon: DC-15S blaster, DL-44 heavy blaster pistol, pair of WESTAR-34 blaster pistols (What Jango Fett carried), Vibroblade
Appearance: Human. Brown hair kept in a short ponytail. Height 5'8.
Wears: Black Rebel body armor
Other: Keenen, despite sharing the last name of the famous admiral, has no relation to him, or the Rebellion. He was born on Coruscant average family. After living a normal childhood, Keenen left to begin a life as a successful businessman. While traveling to a job interview, his ship was ambushed by pirates. He managed to escape, but crashed his ship into the site of the job interview and killed the majority of its occupants in the process. This ruined his dreams of a successful career. Determined to get revenge, he went after the pirates, using stolen Rebel Body armor and the pair of WESTAR-34 blaster pistols he was given by his grandfather. He worked for several years, putting all the money he had earned into the attempt. Eventually, he was left with nothing but his ship, weapons, and clothes. After finally hunting down his attackers, he proceeded to "take care of them." This did not give him the satisfaction he wanted. Nor did it restore his life. He now works as a mercenary, trying to earn the money to rebuild the chances he once had.


Gavin Vendar (male Corellian)
Age: 24
Class: Pilot, communications/computer specialist
Weapons: DL-44, all black vibroblade with black Krayt Dragon Pearl handle
Appearance: 6' average build with light brown hair, blue eyes. Wears dark Khaki military officers pants, light white/tan colored officers shirt, black flight boots, and an armor reinforced black flight jacket.
Other: Served in the Corellian military for several years but resigned after being passed up for promotion three consecutive times. During his time in the military he served in the branch combating smugglers and pirates during which time he ?acquired? his vibroblade from a pirate he killed when his squad boarded the pirate ship. He is proficient with short to medium range firearms but favors using his vibroblade.


Name: Karis Jorvin
Age: 20
Class: Pilot, tech specialist
Weapon: Blaster pistol, green lightsaber
Appearance: Female Human, 5' 9". She has black wavy hair that she keeps pulled into a low, loose ponytail.
Other: Karis grew up on Tatooine as a slave. At the age of 14 she was sold to moisture farmers Kade and Reba Jorvin, who freed her and adopted her as there granddaughter.
Karis started working with whatever pieces of electronics she could get her hands on. She often practiced using her blaster on anything from desert pests to dangers. Kade and Reba's nephew was a freighter pilot and on his frequent visits he taught her how to fly. Then one day, he stopped coming. No one knew why.
When Karis was 19 Kade and Reba were killed when a bounty hunter named Zahllin Moore destroyed their home out of revenge. Zahllin died in his own explosion.
One of the things Karis took before she left was Zahllin's lightsaber, which she assumed he had taken from a jedi at some point in time. She figured it would probably come in handy. Then she took his ship and left Tatooine forever.
Since then she has advanced her skills while working at various odd jobs for different groups an people.



Name: Magenta Marr (Female Human)
Age: 27
Class: Mercenary
Weapons: Vibrosword, WESTAR-M5 Blaster Rifle, DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol, Dagger.
Appearance: Long, red hair, dark green eyes, 6'1, scar down her back, black jumpsuit, weapons belt.
Other: Magenta was born on Coruscant and lived with her parents and older brother, Cane. When she was seventeen, Cane was killed by a mysterious assassin. Grief stricken, she wanted to seek revenge, but knew that with her low grade combat skills, she would probably die without succeeding in her mission.

After that, she traveled the galaxy, never staying in one place too long, but occasionally visiting her parents on Coruscant. Magenta often took jobs as a mercenary to earn money, and the best thing about that was she not only enjoyed the jobs - but she got paid for them too.


Name: Ferno Valorne
Age: 24
Class: Mercenary
Weapons: DC-15 blaster, vibrodagger
Appearance: Face scarred from a house fire he experienced whwn he was 6. Wears a black jumpsuit with red armour.
Other: His entire family died in the fire. Everyone made fun of his scars and is now a loner.

I wouldn't mind seeing a little more background on Inferno, plus a real name, and don't forget to post a ship. I like the burn scars idea. Adds a lot of possible dimension to the character.

Okay, I've decided. How about Ferno Valorne? As for background, he's just started being a mercenary, so...

I like the name. Profile updated.

Don't forget to make a ship. I think you should definatly go with some sort of small ship of starfighter, because we don't have enough of those yet.
