View Full Version : Pilots of the Rebel Alliance (R&D)

10-20-2006, 03:03 PM
I’ve decided to do a new RP while the Dantooine project is underway. It’s going to be a little like my Merc crew threads where each person takes a position, the only difference is instead of mercenaries you become pilots.

It’ll take place about a year after A new hope and around two before the empire strikes back.

The Story

The rebel alliance struck it’s first fatal blow against the tyrannical Empire by destroying it’s newest super weapon, The Death Star. News spread across all the worlds of the galaxy and support quickly grew to the Rebellion’s cause.

A month after the destruction of the Death Star a new class of star ship was stolen by the rebels. The ship was a new highly advanced stealth cruiser with two large Hanger decks that the Rebellion filled with it’s own fighter craft. Now the rebellion can strike the Empire with a force of fighters anywhere in the galaxy.

The Ship

Mothma’s Arrow is what the rebel named the stolen ship, although it has no weapons of it’s own, it contains several different variety of fighters. Its quick agile and has the latest stealth technology including a cloaking device making it invisible to the naked eye. The ships hanger contains 3 X-Wings, 3 A-Wings and 3 Y-Wings.

Hope it is alright starmark.

I'll Join -

Fighter: A-Wing
Name: Bora Govad
Callsign: Balrog
Species: Human
Rank: Lieutenant
Sex: Male
Age: 26
Appearance: Thin, 6' 8" tall, muscluar, good build, is lithe and flexible. Platinum blonde hair, has the normal military buzz cut hair style, with light tan skin. He has odd ice blue eyes, with strange gold rings around the pupils, his eyes have a strange glint of forboding in them, yet they're kind and care free in appearence. He stands straight with a proud appearence, but is a very humble person. Wears a faded dark-red, body tight, rebel flight suit, with a dark grey Imperial fighter pilot helmet that has the number and type; whether Imperial or otherwise, of fighters he's destroyed printed across the sides of the helmet in silver.
Bio: Bora is an Ex-Imperial, being a former high ranking pilot. His early life is little known, and rather hazy. His life in the Imperial piloting core was rather unlike any other. His Imperial career started off as any other, as a Tie Fighter pilot stationed on a Star Destroyer. He showed exceptional skill in piloting, and air combat, and quickly got premoted. He was transferred to something rather unexpected, Tie Bomber piloting, in which he gained patience, and serious maneouvering skill. He was again premoted and was transferred to piloting the first proto's of the Tie Defender, and this is where he found his love of speed. After spending a small amount of time piloting those, he was yet again premoted and transferred to piloting something new, the Tie Interceptor, this being the fighter that he spent the most time with for the rest of his career in the Imperial Navy.

He was soon captured after a battle with some Rebels in a nebula, where the capital ship he was on got destroyed, and his fellow Tie pilots and him ran out of fuel and were quickly taken aboard the Rebel Vessel. Why or for what reason he joined the Rebels, no one knows, except him. At this he eventually went through the same proccess he went through going through the Imperial piloting core; being premoted, then transferred to a different ship type, but eventually he came to be an A-Wing pilot, and being a lover of fast craft, he quickly excelled past his normal excellence in piloting, and requested that he be kept on as an A-Wing pilot. He was eventually approached by an officer, (name not to be disclosed) where he was offered a chance at being the head pilot of a small group of A-Wing pilots on a ship known as, Mothma's Arrow, he accepted, not really being much of debater.

He's very quiet, and only talks to those he likes, or those he trusts, and the only people he trusts are those under his lead. Few trust him, even his fellow pilots, due to the fact that he's Ex-Imperial, and some say he's a spy for the Imperials, yet this has yet to be proven by anyone. He is an outcast on the Mothma's Arrow, and even those who are used to him, are still not accustomed to him, and find his quiet, foreboding demeaner disturbing, and just plain creepy.

(Note: This character sheet is up for serious revisement, and change.)

Name: David Russell
Callsign: The Storm
Species: Human
Rank: Thunder 1 (Y-wing, Lieutenant)
Sex: Male
Age: 37
Bio: David is the son of a famous smuggler(his mother) and a republic capital ship captain(his father) however his perants went into hiding after they helped several jedi escape capture. David and his perants lived on a remote astroid base for some time. After that any records of David have seemed to be wiped from both Imperial and Rebel records. The most recent reccord of David is when he joined the Mothma’s Arrow and being assigned as the Y-Wing squadron's Lieutenant.

Position: A-Wing
Name: Isabella (Bella) Silnak
Callsign: Bells
Species: Human
Rank: Second Lieutenant
Sex: Female
Age: 27
Appearance: Bella has shoulder-length, glossy black hair that she wears straight and only pulls up into a ponytail when she's stressed. Her brown eyes a big and shine with a clever light. Her slim frame, much like her facial features, have hardly changed from the way they were ten years ago.
Bio: Bella was the youngest in a family of six kids -- every one of them boys. As such, she put her natural tenacity into everything she did, taking every chance she had to stand out and shine, to show that she was more than just 'one of the crowd'.

Because of this do-better attitude, she accelled in most of what she did, especially after entering the military academy. However, she only lasted a few months in the Imperial Army as a tactical commander before deserting. She was an eye-witness to many attrocities committed at the Emperor's command and found that she simply could not live with such deeds. She left at first chance.

To avoid detection, Isabella layed low for some time before stumbling on the Resistance. With her prior training, she was assigned to Mothma's Arrow.

((Ookay, so my bio ain't exactly short... :p ))

Position: Lightning 3

Name: Taynari 'Tay' Tanner

Callsign: Speedy Midget (usually shortened to Midget)

Species: Human

Rank: Second Lieutenant

Sex: Female

Age: 23 (see note)

Appearance: 5' 2" tall, slender, her skin seems to be perpetually tanned. It's natural though and exposure to the sun darkens it. Straight white teeth, curly, dark brown hair falling around her shoulders, bright blue eyes that stand out due to her darker skin.

Bio: Taynari Tanner was born on her parents' ship, a merchant vessel employed by the Republic. When the Empire took over, Tay was three years old and her parents' ship was smoothly incorporated into the Empire's merchant fleet. They continued to run their missions unsupervised except for the occasional Empire check to be sure there were no Rebels hiding aboard.

Tay was a good student. She learned everything she possibly could from her parents. When they could teach her no more, she taught herself. By the time she turned ten, she could efficiently pilot her parents' ship while they slept and they trusted her to do so. On her fifteenth birthday, the ship malfunctioned and crashed on Tatooine, killing her parents and leaving her hanging to life by a thread.

When she awoke, she was in a dark hut with an old man. He told her the Empire had sabotaged her ship and that her parents had been secretly running supplies for the Rebel Alliance. In denial, she demanded he return her to her ship. He took her to the wreckage and pointed out many indicators that he had not lied to her. Discouraged, Tay bought a small apartment in Mos Eisley and lived there for a year, claiming to be eighteen.

During the next year, she made repairs to an old fighter she'd found in a junkyard. When she was satisfied with her repair job, she left Tatooine and found her way to Alderaan. There, she stole a newer fighter and attempted to flee. Bail Organa saw her attempt and offered her a job, flying the very A-Wing she attempted to run off with and told her that it would be a start in the right direction for avenging her parents' deaths. She flew that A-Wing for three years and has just been transferred to the Mothma's Arrow.

The A-Wing fits Tay very well: an A-Wing is small, so is Tay; an A-Wing is fast, Tay loves speed; an A-Wing has less shielding and armor, allowing the pilot to take chances someone in an X-Wing would never dream of and Tay takes those chances; an A-Wing has no droid, Tay feels that, if you use a droid, you could be a better pilot... but she never says that aloud.

Note: In reality, Tay is only twenty, but when she was fifteen, she claimed to be eighteen so she could legally rent an apartment without trouble. She's been telling people her age as being three years older than reality for so long that she doesn't really remember how old she is; she genuinely believes she's twenty-three.

I feel like an idiot as i made a major mistake, In the Char sheet i had the field Position and in my PC i put fighter by mistake... Sorry about this. Basically i think Pottsie is Hurricane 2, Steven is Thunder 1, Archon is Lightning 1, FFWM12 is Lightning 2 and Wild jedi is Lightning 3. Because i made a mistake FFWM does not have to change her rank if she doesn't want to.

Rawr, MA stole my position! Seeing as it would be a bit weird to have two lieutenants in one set, I'll shifted to second.

Lookin' to be a good one.

Position: Hurricane 3

Name: Christopher "Chris" Isano

Callsign: Reaper

Species: Human

Rank: Second Lieutenant

Sex: Male

Age: 23

Appearance: Average weight, 6' 3" tall, normal caucasian skin, golden brown wavy hair, blue eyes who many have mistaken by purple or cyan, he is donned in a X-Wing Pilot Ouftit that hinders his well-flexed muscles.

Bio: As a child living in the planet of Corellia, yet natural of Naboo, under the rule of the Empire, it wasn't that much of a life as a children. He was usually picked by the bullies, and on one fateful day, he punched one of the bullies, and hit him beside the forehead, accidentally killing him. A Imperial Recruiter was in the zone, and prevented the teacher to harm him and such. He then noticed that with his natural anger, he would make a fine cadet, and his parents let him join the Empire, knowing he would have a greater and better future in it.

In his teenager years, his short and straight spiky hair was turning to one more of a wavy, and it's brown colour was turning into a more golden tone. Around the age of 15, he had turned into a harmless and thin child to a well-grown and muscular teenager. He also developed a taste for physical exercises. A little bit after he made 17, he was sent on an assignment to Dantooine, to see if he could find the Rebels, for the Recruiter had faith on him. He went with another Imperial Agent, and both went on his TIE Fighter. Arriving there, the Agent died in a trap set by the Rebels, and while he put up a good fight, he finally saw their vision, and joined them.

Now, at the age of 23, he is now working as a Rebel Agent, and has made good friends off the names of Wedge Antilles, Xander Thray, Isabella Silnak, David Russell, and many more, but the most notable of them all, Luke Skywalker. At around this time as well, he developed a taste for catchphrases, the most notable being "This is where the fun begins". He also recently joined "Mothma's Arrow" Squadron, which includes many of his great friends.

K I'll wait untill tomorrow (about 18 hours) to see if we get the Y-Wing's positions filled, if not we can say they are piloted when the mission calls for them and My Char will assign pilots to Thunder 2&3. If this is the case Steven can have an X-wing or A-wing (Hurricane 4 or Lightning 4) if he wants and can keep his characters rank but he'll be the primary/commanding Y-Wing pilot (so if we're in a dogfight he can have a better fighter) while me or Master Archon's Chars are the primary/commanding X-wing or A-wing pilots.

Also if you are in a ship with an astrometric droid you can do a small char sheet for him/her/it if you wish to, as some droids can have interesting histories and personalities(even if they do only communicate in beeps and whistles).

I'll control the Colonel for mission sensitive stuff (Breifings, orders etc) but other than that anyone can control any crew member as his or her wishes.

Well, i'll do one, just for the fun of it.

Name: R3-T5
Callsign: Little Dude
Species: N/A, Droid
Sex: Male Programming
Age: Unknown
Appearance: R3 is a black and white astromech droid with jets on his legs.
Bio: Believe it or not, R3 has been through many majour roles in many majour battles, including the Clone Wars. He passed through many owners, including Bounty Hunters, Medics, Smugglers and even a Tusken Raider. After his last owner, who was a Rebel that was killed by the Empire, they dumped him on Tatooine, and a Trader found him, but was killed secretly in Alderaan for the droid having most sensitive information. The droid, damaged, was then found by Christopher Isano in an assignment, and took him under his wing as his Droid partner.

this one sounds real fun, and since starmark is making it, it maybe wont die directly, as the other ones I try to join ^^

Anyway since all nice ships are taking I'll take a slow Y-wing ^^

Position: Thunder 2 (Y-wing)

Name: Adi Starsign

Callsign: Griffin

Species: Human

Rank: Second Lieutenant

Sex: Female

Age: 24

Appearance: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/19968910/?&q=by%3Athenass+the+four&qh=sort%3Atime+-in%3Ascraps (the one in the middle)

Bio: When Adi was a little girl she used to spacetravel with her father, he learned her how to fly.
She lived a happy life until the Empire killed her father, accusing him of being a traitor. To get her revenge she signed up for the rebel fleet.
After Amiral Tarkins (not certain of name)death, thanks to Skywalker, she started to fight for a greater cause. Freedom to the people.

Serveral battles she fought in, and as a successful pilot she got recruited into the mothmas arrow.

I hope this is ok! :D

Heres the RP: http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?p=2196854#post2196854
