this is one Rogue that we see again and again but cant use the force very well but makes up for it with his flying skills.


what do you guys(and gals) think about him?

I think he is one of the most over looked Jedi's. The book I, Jedi was great since it gave him a nice back story. Would love to see more of him.

I agree completely. I personally think he is a much more interesting Jedi, simply because he doesn't have the regular Jedi powers and has to compensate with his wit. I think his ability to use Jedi Mind Tricks and Force Absorption is also underrated.

Don't forget in I, Jedi he uses the Force very well to supplement his natural piloting skills. Its also shown that its not a matter of inability to use the Force, he just isn't gifted in using some aspects.

Overall he is one of the more unique Jedi.

He just wasn't all that happy when it came to the troubles in the galaxy at that time Smile

I agree he's underrated and why I liked reading more of him in NJO in Greg Keyes books besides Stackpole; very enjoyable character. But, if an author can't write a character well, I'm sure he or she doesn't focus too much on that character; maybe wit is more difficult to write then others? Bring Stackpole or Keyes back!

I still find it unrealistic how he's hardly even Force-sensitive and he's still on the council.

Actually his only weakness his inability to move objects. His family line has no telekinetic powers. I think all Jedi should have some kind of weaknesses and strengths. Flaws help make a character more believable and well developed.

He can still draw on the Force to heal, speed, lightsaber, etc except throwing a rock (which was stated above). However, he sure can make you think that rock is moving Very Happy

Right but when he absorbs energy he can use it for telekinetic power. Wink

He is a very interesting character all around. I really enjoyed I, Jedi.

Yeah...long as he can make you think you're about to be knocked cold by the rock, that's practically as good as actually hurling it. Smile

Yeah, the other day I was brainstorming about what job I'd like to get some day and honestly the best I could come up with was a Jedi Knight.

I like him a lot. I think it's interesting that he can't use the force to lift objects I like he uses his brain instead of the force... but this is weird for a jedi to not lift objects XD

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