I figured that with the recent announcement many of the characters we talked about in this forum will be gone for good and others may returned with major changes. So let us talk one final time about the characters we love.

This isn't a thread for complaining about the change or that the characters will be gone, but talking about what we love and will miss about the characters.

I think I'll start with an unlikely character, for he was never the focus of any book, but remained a constant yet minor presence since his creation, Gavin Darklighter. This character was created as a nod to the young men and women throughout history that have lied about their age to fight for a cause they believe in, even if he didn't actually lie about it. He started off as a young man that others looked after and took under their wing to become the high ranking ex-Rouge in the history of Star Wars. I always hoped we would get another X-wing book where he was put in character of Star Fighter command. He went from a wide eye child who was nervous to dance with a pretty woman to an Admiral who ignored and brushed off Jacen Solo's force pressure and then gave Jacen a verbal spanking about letting the professionals do their job.

I don't know what all I'll miss because I don't know what's different.

What I have missed for a while because of TCW is Siri Tachi. I loved her dynamic with Obi-Wan. And I loved how it played out. As it turns out Satine was basically the same thing, only a Duchess instead of a Jedi. But their arcs followed almost the same path. So I'm not overly sad about it because the meaning for Obi is still there, as are the parallels with Anakin. Still Siri was a lot funnier than Satine.

Obviously Mara could be the big one if they do not make her Luke's wife. I'll miss the Mara of the NJO and Legacy series because she just felt like an old friend by then. Even if they bring her in as anything other than Luke's wife, it just won't feel the same to me.

Anakin Solo. Chances are he'll be wiped out completely since George doesn't like things with similar names and Episode VII is based off his story treatment. Plus George is still a consultant. Either way, I don't think anyone in the Story Group is pushing to bring Anakin Solo in.

Ben Skywalker died too young. Sad

There is a chance he'll be reincarnated in Domhnall Gleeson though.
