Something going on in here? I'm outside, about to tell my sister that she's my sister. Might be awkward.

And I'll, uh...just sit here, wherever it is that I am, waiting to experience excruciating mental pain when my Master is killed in a few hours. But, of course, I'm going to marry his killer someday. I can't decide if that's depressing or simply insanity.

Never mind me. I'll be over here, haunting the Sith who used to be my husband. I'm singing Justin Bieber songs while he's trying to meditate.

It's the best of both love and war.

I'll be in another reality, skewering Telmarines and feeling groovy. Cool

And I'm taking bets that Callista will be in the next FOTJ novel. Very Happy

Drat, and I was excited to read those. I really need to work on my post Jedi novels though.

I don't know much about post-NJO, (I'm working on it though!) but one thing I do know is that I could go the rest of my life without ever reading about Callista again.


I really liked her character when she first appeared in Children of the Jedi, but that quickly changed when she began her whining after losing her ability to touch The (Light Side of) Force.
She could have been a great character if she had just gotten over herself and would have been a Jedi that couldn't use the Force but still be able to kick some b*tt.
After all the whining though and after all these years I don't feel any need to have her come back.

But who knows, right Smile

[quote="Elainya"]

I was excited to see her in Order 66, even though her last name's been changed (anyone know why Karen Traviss did that?).[/quote]

Technically, though Order 66 came out most recently of her pro-fiction appearances, it took place first, or second.. I'm a little fuzzy on CW to other series\book dates in the chronology. She also played a major (comparatively speaking) role with her lover\fiance`, Gaith, in No Prisoners. Therefore, I look at it the same way I look at Leia's name (That Ming was the name Callista took to stay safe during the Empire).

But then, maybe that's just me.

To my knowledge, and I'm guessing here, Masana was Callista's birth surname. However, when she transferred to Cray Mingla's body to save her existence, she changed the name to Ming in honor of Cray. That is not stated anywhere that I am aware of, but it's the reason I always envisioned for the switch. Seemed too coincidental, otherwise. *shrugs*

Does anyone else wonder what happened to her? She came back from the dead (basically), lost her force powers, then learned she could only access it through the Dark side.

Anyways, speculation, possible Legacy of the Force spoiler? Who knows? Anyone?


I'd prefer not to see Callista back because I loathed how she came to be. I admit, it's much better than seeing Akanah. Ugh. I cannot believe he slept with her.

I'd much rather see Gaeriel. I think Luke should have had a fling with her. Maybe he did and I missed it.

No fling, but Gaeriel has been dead a long time.

Ah yes, I've seen references to her death. I hadn't read the story of her death, though. I wonder where I missed that or it just happened outside of any book? I'm late to the EU, and I'm reading books printed years ago so I'm a little behind.
