I must say that Thrawn is about the only Imperial character that I really like. I thought he was an awesome way to pick up the story again post-RotJ without there being a superweapon of any kind. And although I loved the way it happened, I think it was a mistake to kill him off at the end of The Last Command. In the new canon there is a huge potential to make Thrawn a major character that could even cross-over into the movies (but I doubt that now really).

All of that said, for me, Jaina was just more impactful and a character that I loved following her growth from her birth in The Last Command, the YJK series, and all the way to the final EU book, Crucible. I loved that it was being set up that she would start the Imperial Knights in the Legacy comics and possibly the great great (great) grandmother of Ania Solo. I wasn't crazy about her training with Fett to kill her brother, or the on again/off again relationship with Jagged Fel, but for the most part I really liked her.

So, my vote goes to Jaina.

Hey all, well this vote took awhile for me but in the end after a few days of thinking and searching I ended up flipping my lucky coin for this vote and Thrawn won the flip and the coin has yet to let me down. So my vote goes to Thrawn.

I've thought about this for days. I love Thrawn, and I just read his book. But I believe the character to have more of an impact on my Star Wars fandom was Jaina. I'm so sorry, Grand Admiral! But Jaina gets my vote. Confused

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I have two 6-inch Black Series figures sitting on my desk beside me every day.

Thrawn. and. Jaina.

This is literally the most difficult vote for me.

Thrawn is my favourite Villain character of all time in Star Wars (tied with Soundwave of Transformers all tim) while Jaina is my favourite "next generation" hero.

We were born the same year and I read the books basically growing up with her.

THIS ISN"T FAIR!!!!

I had to take time to consider the definition of "Best".

That's not merely "favourite" it has to be objective. Thrawn is the only non-film character to have a major role in both the classic EU and Disney-verse.

So, by that alone, I have to give it to Thrawn.

(I'm emotionally torn)

I'm emotionally compromised by the outcome of this vote. In that I would have been distraught either way. Crying or Very sad

I'm actually going to vote Zayne. I know I'll be in the minority here, but I think he did more for me than Revan did. Zayne's story was fun but remained emotionally compelling. Revan was a blank slate that we could imprint on and make whatever we wanted, he had no character. Then they gave him one and by the end of his story (they did finally end it) they had soured me on him.

Revan has a cool design and an epic video game but I don't like almost anything else they did with him, whereas Zayne has remained a blast and I adored his story alongside his supporting characters so I'm voting for him.

^ I'll be honest. I voted for Revan because of his armour. I'm not too familiar with either character.
