The Galaxy is in turmoil now after Jacen Solo proclaimed himself as the new Dark Lord of the Sith.

Whereas on the board of the Anakin Solo, Luke Skywalker distracted Caedus on the bridge of the ship, while Han and Leia were able to locate and rescue Allana—his daughter. Knowing that Allana was taken from him, Caedus sworn to get his daughter back even if it means to sacrifice those whom he once loved.

Little did Caedus know that there were other Sith on Korriban, and while they disapproved of him being a member of their order, they regarded him as a Sith lightning rod to distract the Jedi away from them, thus giving them time to grow in numbers and power.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are the basic characters:
Darth Caedus (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jacen_Solo)

This sounds pretty cool. Can we make up our own characters too?

This sounds pretty cool. Can we make up our own characters too?

sure you can :), for me I’ll play as Darth Caedus.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Jacen Solo
Aka: Darth Caedus
Age: 31
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Affiliation: the Sith
Alliance: Dark Side
Rank: The Dark Lord of the Sith
Ship: the Anakin Solo
Weapons: a silver hilted lightsaber with a red synth crystal.
Picture: Caedus (http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/b/b0/Darthcaedus.JPG)
Bio: Jacen Solo was the eldest son of Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo, the younger twin of Jaina and the brother of Anakin. Even before he and his sister were born, their uncle Luke Skywalker could sense their strong presence in the Force, for the twins shared an inseparable mental bond. Later in his life he became the mentor to his cousin, Ben Skywalker and fathered a baby girl, Allana, with Tenel Ka.

Jacen showed latent Force powers as an infant when he helped his uncle and his uncle's students defeat the spirit of Exar Kun. He started his formal Jedi training years later at his uncle's Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4. He excelled as one of the best students, getting into many adventures with his friends, Lowbacca, Tenel Ka and his sister Jaina. Later, during the Yuuzhan Vong War, he often did not see eye to eye with the orthodox Jedi view of the Force, despite being one of the more powerful Knights of the New Jedi Order.

After being captured by the Yuuzhan Vong, he became associated with Vergere, who molded many of his ways of thinking. Jacen had always been an empathetic person, forming close bonds with Humans and animals alike; as a child he developed an affinity and sensitivity toward nature and the Living Force. However, this bond with living beings diminished severely following his travels amongst other Force users. By 40 ABY, Jacen's empathy to others had become largely nonexistent, a trait later evidenced by his remorseless torture and killing of suspected terrorists.

Later that year, he secretly apprenticed himself to Lumiya, becoming her third and final apprentice. After Mara Jade Skywalker's failed assassination attempt on his life, and the murder of Lumiya at the hands of Luke Skywalker, Jacen declared himself Darth Caedus, Dark Lord of the Sith, bringing the Skywalker legacy in full circle.

Picture: Akira Claris (http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x212/blue-fang/Vanessa%20Hudgens/10342_Vanessa_Hudgens_-_Andrew_Macp.jpg)
Bio: Akira Claris is a compassionate and kind young woman, willing to help those in need. She is a student of Luke Skywalker, and is real trustworthy. She is also strong in the Force.
Born on Corellia, Akira lived with her grandparents. During the war, her grandparents died of illness. Akira flew away from Corellia, trying to find her a new path. Luke Skywalker found her in the Lower City of Taris, and offered to take her as his student.
During her training, Akira grew strong in the Force. She was willing to help those who were in need. But now that Jacen Solo turned to the Dark Side, it was time for Akira to prove her loyalty to Master Skywalker.

Hidden Apprentice, you do know that by the time Jacen became Caedus he was 44. And as a hint in further RPs: copying straight from any source is a sign of a bad RPer.


Name: Ashai Trond
Age: 79
Gender: Male
Species: Zabrak
Affiliation: Sith Order, Jedi Order
Alliance: Sith (For now)
Rank: Hunter / Mercenary
Ship: Belbullab-22 starfighter named Kadrian
Weapons: Two cortosis Ryyk kerarthorr blades, several lightsabers, T-6 "Thunderer" heavy blaster pistol
Picture: http://www.prodoehl.net/NRAA/vardeth.jpg
Bio: This Zabrak man is a very rare specimen in the Galaxy due to his very odd change of alignments since youth. Originally he was born and raised to the age of four by his parents on Coruscant and was discovered as Force Sensitive. Due to the ongoing Clone Wars, the Jedi were on the look for new Jedi and thus the boy was taken from his home to join the Temple on Coruscant where he would learn the basic skills of a Jedi. But before he could even be assessed for becoming a Padawan, the Clone Wars ended and he was forced to hide in the lower levels of Coruscant to evade the traitorous Clones and their new commander; Darth Vader. Ashai turned to thieving for a living and was rather good at it due to his Jedi training until he was caught by an Inquisitor only a year after the Clone Wars ended. Instead of being killed, the Inquisitor found him to be quite able for becoming an Inquisitor as well and approached the higher echelon to speak for the Zabrak boy. After several months of discussing, and the Emperor's personal experience with the abilities of well trained Zabraks, Ashai was granted training in an otherwise human-only society where it was made known that the Emperor himself recommended him for training to avoid racism amongst the students.

Several years later the Zabrak worked in a secret sect of Grand Inquisitors who were the covert elite of them. Those few who were able enough to sneak up on Vader without the Sith sensing their arrival. They were like shadows. But this didn't last long either, for the young Skywalker and his Rebel friends achieved major victories against the Empire and eventually killed the Emperor. Once again the former Jedi and now Jedi Hunter left for hiding and began a legitimate life by training mercenaries and bounty hunters the needed skills to survive in the business, making some jobs himself in the midst before being faced with the next threat: Yuuzhan Vong. The Yuuzhan Vong began the slaughter of all force sensitive and threatened the Galaxy with horrors unimaginable. Ashai and his pupil mercenaries joined the New Republic in their fight and acted as a commando unit for a period of time until the Yuuzhan Vong were defeated and they left from the Galaxy. Once again, the now decorated former Jedi and Jedi Hunter left for hiding but this time not because he was threatened. This time it was because he was tired and old.

But Ashai could not find rest. The Dark Lady of the Sith Lumiya approached him for further jobs during the Confederacy-Galactic Alliance War. But before he could get back to Lumiya, the Dark Lady was killed and due to the possible money making situation, he decided to instead join forces with Lumiya's bratty pupil: Caedus. Once more he could find use for his old Grand Inquisitor -time Jedi Hunting equipment.

Actually I'm still reading the NJOs. For me I was more interested in the pre-Galactic Empire era. however, thanks for the alert. And about the copying matter, I was in a hurry when I decided to open the thread so lets just hope there will be no further copy-paste attempts in the future.

...and welcome both :)

Why not? I'll join. This looks interesting...

Name: Jak Randon
Age 23
Species: Human
Affiltration: Mandalorian, Jedi Order
Alliance: New Jedi Order
Rank: Jedi Knight
Weapons: Double-bladed Lightsaber (Blue), 2x Mandalorian Heavy Blasters
Picture: http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii228/Ladiesman_036/Jedi.jpg
Bio: Jak Randon was trained to be a Mandalorian at a fairly young age on Raxus Prime. Though long resenting his father, he abandoned his culture wanting to have nothing to do with his arrogant father. He was later found by a Jedi Master on Baroonda, and was discovered to be Force Sensitive. As a result, he was taken to Corellia for Jedi Training. During his life with the Mandalorians, he became skilled with Computer Usage and Slicing, making him a formidable hacker.

welcome to the RP Phantom Knight

Ive noticed the lack of diversity. So I'm going to RP as a species I haven't before. Selkath. Bare in mind that not much info about Selkath is known after the battle of Endor

Lets hope I know enough of the Expanded universe to create a sign up that is canonically correct

Name: D.J Prime
Age 25
Species: Selkath
Affiltration: New Republic, Jedi Order
Alliance: New Jedi Order
Rank: Jedi Knight
Ship: The Highway Star
Weapons: Green single hilt lightsaber, Dual blaster pistols (Known to *gunsling* his pistols frequently)
Picture: http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/6/65/Selkath.jpg. Except he wears a dark grey Trench coat over top his jumpsuit.

Bio: D.J is short for a longer name that he no longer remembers. From what he remembers of his past life he left Manaan to see the rest of the galaxy. However he made it as far as Bespin when he was employed as a freelance mercenary. DJ was trained in the use of blaster pistols and became a highly efficient killer. Until a rival mercenary attempted to assassinate him. At that point D.J used a highly untapped use of the force and managed to kill him without noticing he was there. At that point he was discovered as a force sensitive and began training to be a jedi. He slowly became a Jedi knight and kept blaster pistols as a trademark.

(Now I doubt I would be able to do this but I was hoping I could have D.J be able to speak basic due to a mechanical vocabulator/voice box he had installed on Bespin.)

*Character design done by FettFan79* (from deviant art)

Weapons:Specially modified mandalorian sword (has cortosis for the jedi job), two DL-44 modified semi-automatic blaster pistols and a capture field (can hold up to 5 minutes when fully charged) and some other tricks thnx to Aito's ingenuity

Bio: Aito grew up with the desire to be the best bounty hunter in galactic history, and admires Boba Fett (as shown in his complex mandalorian armor and his attitude) He has a knick for inventing and customizing his own weapons. He has his own small starship named Hades along with two other affiliates: Vergo (pilot and mechanic) and Ingrid (weapons specialist, part time medic and Aito's armorer)
He currently learned about the abduction of Jacen's daughter Allana via a source of his in the Alliance Navy, and hopes to profit from this event.

Finally posted, sorry I didn't earlier, I had to study for some tests, but now I have a week off! Let posting rampage begin! :D

btw, the beacon means Han is in trouble and needs some assistance (must be the old age :xp: ) and you can just go help him or let the bounty hunter (maybe Aito?) rough them up then help him, you can do anything you want with the thugs.

And I got the Huttese words from a Star Wars book I bought a long time ago (but not in a galaxy too far away) : Star Wars :Galactic Phrase Book and Travel Guide (very handy and geeky) If you want me to post the tranlations just say the word boss
