the book about him was really good and funny. the only thing annoying is his "holier than thou" attitude -.-


Yeah he's one of my favorites. But I like his flaws. They make him feel more real. I'm glad they haven't ran with the flaws straight to the DS. They've kept Corran in the light thank the maker!

Corran Horn is awesome, he is one of my favorite SWEU characters. I wrote a post about him and his unique lightsaber.

It's been a long time since they've mentioned his dual-phase lightsaber it seems like. Would be nice if they brought it back up again, I always thought it was a neat piece of inventiveness.

Wasn't it used in the Horn vs Horn fight in Outcast? You know, when Corran and Valin locked horns...

Well I'm sure Corran used his lightsaber, but I can't remembered if they mentioned it was still dual phase. Possibly...I almost want to say Corran tried to use it to trick his kid, but I can't say for certain.

I know Valin was impressed that the imposter paid a lot of attention to detail, in that he didn't use telekinetic powers, and I'm almost positive (meaning, someone will come along in a day or two to say otherwise) that he did use the dual phase in the fight.

I'm really missing characters like Corran. I love Luke, Ben, Leia, Jaina, and the rest of the Skywalker family, but it would be nice for to check in with other characters we care about now and again.

I just hope Corran gets to have a hand in redeeming his children.

I agree- that's the one thing they dropped with the NJO- all the side characters getting minor to minor lead roles.

^ Which might very well change post-FotJ when the books go in a stand-alone/trilogy direction. Cool

It would be a welcome change.

I'm re-reading Rogue Squadron and I agree - I really miss the "side stories" that took place in the Bantam novels post-ROTJ. Hopefully we'll get more of that after FotJ is over.

I would be interested in a short story/ stand alone novel about Corran and his time at the Corellian Jedi satellite academy just before LotF.

Jedi, smugglers, Corellians oh my!

Corran had some great scenes in Apocalypse. After his inaction in the first half of the series due to his family situation, it was nice to see him get into the action like he did.

I like Corran much better as a Jedi than I did as a pilot. He's more mature as a person: he's less suspicious and less arrogant. He recognized that he was very competitive, and liked to be the best, but it took quite a while for him to learn to be a good team player. There were times when it had to be beaten into him pretty hard. In the early Rogue Squadron novels, he's just too ready to make assumptions about people, and frequently too stubborn to listen when told he's wrong.

His case wasn't helped, for me, by his introduction. I was thrilled when I learned that Bantam had taken my suggestion and produced a book about Wedge and Rogue Squadron. A whole book with Wedge as the central character ! So I bought it, started reading, and instead of Wedge, the POV character was this show-off, Corran Horn. The whole of the first chapter was about this never-heard-of-him-before character who thinks he's a better pilot than almost everyone. He didn't go away either. I wanted more Wedge, but instead we got this hot pilot, pestered by beautiful women, who had a souped-up droid stuffed with useful extra programming that helped him to solve problems for the squadron. Oh, and it turns out he's a potential Jedi.
Fortunately, Corran doesn't always take himself too seriously and can admit to being in the wrong. He still got preferential treatment from Stackpole though, which grates. During the Bacta War, Rogue Squadron distinguished themselves from the NR by giving their X-wings personalized paintjobs. Afterwards, the X-wings are restored to Alliance grey, apart from Corran's. His fighter is still in CorSec colours three years later. Technically, the fighter is Corran's personal property, but the special paintjob still seems less like Corran asserting his individuality, and more like the author shouting 'Hey, this guy's special !"
