Welcome to the forum, Titan and, yes, you can join.
I think we're ready to get started. A few things: 1. Because we're currently dealing with an odd number (15), I'll be waiting for everyone to vote 2. Because it's harder to find images for some of the EU characters, I think I'll stick with one image for each character. 3. Because some of these characters are more obscure (e.g. I didn't know who X2 was before today), I'll be posting Wookieepedia links for each character, at least in the first round.
Round 1, Match 1:
I'm going with Ferus definitely. It's been a long time since I read the Scholastic books (though now I want to re-read them! This game is going to be nostalgic...), but I always loved Ferus, especially in "The Last of the Jedi" and thought he was an under-rated character.
Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter east.
