I might join as a Captain of a capital ship under one of the Player Imperial Admirals. Unless that might turn out to be a pain for RP's sake.

Since shaak Ti is dead in this timeline, I made an all new character.
Name: Riyal Tashi
Age: 31
Gender: Female
Allegiance paid to: Jedi Order
Rank: Jedi Knight (Jed Sentinel in Particular)
Appearance:
Image

Image

Personality: Calm, pensive, and knowledgable, with a wry, dry wit. She is very patient, and does not fear much, having seen plenty of danger and terror in her galactic travels.
Force Sensitive: Yes
Skills/Powers: Particular skill with Force Sense, Force Absorb, and Psychometry. She is well versed in lightsaber combat, specializing in Form VI: Niman, which relies on adaptive, fluid bladework and the integration of force powers into combat sequences. She also is prone to acrobatics and evasions when on the defensive. She is a known telepath, like most Jedi.
Weaponry: One Blue Lightsaber, with an Illum Crystal, with a rugged, leather wrapped hilt.
Image

Ship: Stole an older Republic Marauder class corvette she later dubbed the "Griffin".
Image

Biography: Born on Ryloth to a wealthy businessman and his mistress, Riyal Tashi was immediately unwanted. Her father contemplated selling her into slavery, but the mother would not allow it, prompting her untimely death at the hands on her lover. Riyal was hidden away at the Merchants estate, and, despite being only an infant, was banished from the main Mansion, and had to live among the livestock and servants. When a Jedi Knight stationed on Ryloth came to investigate reports of abuse among the workers, he found Riyal, who was showing limited signs of Force Sensitivity. Happy to be rid of the nuissance, Riyal's father gave her to the Jedi readily, who returned with her to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.

Joining Bantha Clan, Riyal was noted for her curious mind, and quiet, intelligent nature. At the age of 10, she was taken as a Padawan by the infamous Jedi Sentinel and archeologist, Orus Bain, a Human from Corellia. Despite his allegiance to the Jedi Order, Orus was often on his own, pursing missions of his own choosing in the Outer Rim, particularly with archeological or historical value. Under Bain's tutelage, Riyal become well versed in Galactic History and Lore, and had much more "real life" experience than her Jedi peers, only visiting the Temple rarely.

In 22 BBY, Orus and Riyal were recalled to the Jedi Temple to deal with the Geonosis Crisis, but arrived too late to join Master Windu's strike force. During the Clone Wars, Orus and Riyal, due to their extensive experience in the field, were agents of Republic Intelligence, and soon proved themselves skilled spies, scouts, and squad leaders for the Clone Commandos. In 21 BBY, Riyal was knighted, and soon pursued her own missions, though she did not take a Padawan, viewing such a task as detrimental to her missions.

In 19BBy, when Order 66 was issued, Orus and Riyal were exploring possible Separatist threats on the Ancient Moon of Jedha, when their Commandos turned on them. Orus held off the troopers long enough to escape, but Riyal lost her lightsaber in her flight. Returning to the scene of the battle, she retrieved her old Master's weapon, and swore to continue the Jedi Order through her actions. She then escaped the world on the "Griffin," and began to traverse the Galaxy once more.

Upon review of characters listed last page, none of those really fit. Maybe they'll just be a part of some Imperial planetary space defense force on the edge between Imperial, Rebellion, and CIS space.

Natural shapeshifting between rage and rest forms

Weaponry (If any): Lightsaber
Ship (If any):
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please):
Tiberious was born on March 22 of the year 52 bby. At the age of 2 he was taken to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant for training. Because the Dazouri didn't need to sleep, Tiberius would often spend the nights meditating on what he had learned during the day, as well as read in the library and practice with his lightsaber. This allowed him to gain a mastery over his emotions and an advantage over the abilities of his fellow classmates by the time of the trials. During his trials at the age of 12 he would often change into his rage form in order to deal with the stresses of the trials, this allowed him to best his classmates at the trials. Tiberius was found to be one of the most talented of the bunch and was selected to be the Padawan of a Jedi Master. His master specialized in infiltrating the galactic underworld and would take Tiberious with him on a mission into the heart of the criminal underworld to investigate crimes. For 2 years Tiberious would have little contact with the republic, but would learn from his master and avoid the dark side. At the age of 14, after finding dirt on a powerful crime lord, his master was discovered to be a spy. When his master was caught by the crime lord and executed, Tiberious followed his masters instructions and ran and brought the evidence to light. Following the criminals downfall, Tiberious was assigned to the exploration corps where he would remain for a year until a friend of his old master, a Jedi Ambassador, came forward to train Tiberious.

With his new master Tiberious would travel around the Galaxy and assist his master with the resolution of conflicts. When he was 20, in 32 bby, Tiberius passed his trials and became a Jedi Knight. After being knighted Tiberious chose to be a Jedi Instructor and teach the next generation. He would spend 8 years training new Jedi in everything from manners to negotiation, sword fighting to flying, and the Jedi code to the force. At night he would often study Jedi crafting. In 26 bby, Tiberious would take some students on a field trip to Mandalore to learn about the history of the crusades, it's current government, and it's martial arts. While on Mandalore he would teach these students what they'd be learning on Coruscant. And in 25 bby they would return to Coruscant. Channeling the force as a creative energy and using what he'd seen on Mandalore, Tiberious would begin construction of a new lightsaber that was a work of art and a suit of armour. Both took a long time to complete as they could morph with him. These would be finished in 23 bby. In 23 bby Tiberious would unveil these to the Jedi council as the newest addition to the Jedi treasures.

In 22 bby the level of mastery of emotions that Tiberious possessed made him distrustful of Palpatine and grew disappointed when Palpatine was elected. He didn't appreciate that the seperatists were met with hostility as he didn't believe it to be wrong to separate. The problem became relevant after the Jedi council chose to invade Geonosis. Although he went to Geonosis, the conflict battled with his beliefs that the Jedi shouldn't be interfering in the war but rather should be keeping the peace.

Notes: (Please put here any ancillary characters you will likely play as. For example if playing as a Squad Leader put the members of the squad here, or if playing as a captain put any important characters from the ship here)

This paragraph says everything you ever need to know why Disney purging the old EU was a good idea.
Darth Sidious, newly declared Emperor of the Galactic Empire, soon arrived and snatched what remained of Vader's body from the bank of the lava river, placing him on a medical capsule and willing him to live. He then took Vader back to Coruscant, repairing the damage to Vader's body through intensive cybernetic enhancements with help from arcane Sith healing techniques at the newly renamed Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center. He was repaired and rebuilt over a period of several days by a hyper-sophisticated Ubrikkian prototype DD-13 medical assistant droid named DD-13/HK, a 2-1B surgical droid by the name of 2-1B/DRX, and an enhanced FX-6 medical assistant droid. The Ubrikkian "Galactic Chopper" DD-13/HK oversaw the installation of his cybernetic implants, prosthetic limbs, and synthetic organs, and the FX-6 performed numerous blood transfusions and stabilized the terrible damage done to Vader's eyes, vocal cords, scalp, face, arms, legs, and especially his lungs. Both droids spent much time connecting Vader's severed nerve endings to his new robotic parts. The surgery was also less than pleasant; 2-1B/DRX deliberately did not perform reconstructive cosmetic surgery to Vader's face, as it would be hidden behind the mask. The process included eight hours to supply artificial implants to his internal organs, two and a half of which were dedicated to implementing the linkages. Budgetary limitations and lack of effective equipment imposed by the Empire also acted as a factor to the shoddy attempts at repair, with DD-13/HK speculating that the limitations may have been deliberately orchestrated by the Emperor in order to ensure Vader didn't rebel. 2-1B/DRX likewise ordered for Vader's helmet to be waxed with woodoo hide in the hopes that the resulting shine would distract Palpatine from the shortcuts they were forced to implement during the surgery. In addition, the blackened and dead flesh on Vader's scalp that was exposed to the heat of Mustafar was surgically removed, although the scarring itself penetrated to his bones.

I also might start to limit the amount of Imperials, due to how many there.

That's my favourite part of the EU - The endless, endless lore and worldbuilding creating an elaborate, real-seeming society. Wookiepedia could be documenting actual history for all the detail they go into.

I can see a side of it, streamlining lore for a reboot is not unheard of, and indeed sometimes necessary but, I, along with many others, had attachments to certain storylines and the like. Everyone has their different versions of the lore really. The EU was just so big that taking an axe to almost all of it was very drastic, and rubbed alot of people the wrong way, even if it was necessary.

Thankfully, for those of us who prefer legends there is so much material its easy to ignore the new Disney Canon, and stay with the old EU.

I kind of blend the two together oftentimes, the same as most people did for anything in the EU that contradicted each other, like the 2003 Clone Wars Cartoon and Lucerno's Labyrinth of Evil.

Were you able to take a peek at my App Val?

Some of those ships aren't even from Star Wars (They are too far fetched for a Hutt to have) plus if the Republic caught him using his ship illegally (why would the Republic allow a small time criminal, let alone a hutt join the navy?) he would of been court marshaled and sent to prison, probably for life, or at least several human life times considering he's a Hutt.

So could I retcon the fleet part and have him just be a tactician that's looking to join the Confederacy?
I might shape him into a crime lord that got the tactics elsewhere, I'm also thinking of having him join the republic navy, get a court martial and arrested, then is broken out of prison by some mercenaries that he contacted using his underground connections, that's what I'm planning on doing as a backstory, just going to make sure if that would be ok with you.

Brain worms are under hive mind control of the Queens of Geonosis. The primarily serve a role of protecting them by possessing dead Geonosians in the catacomb temples to defend their Queen. Although we have witnessed geonosians use the brain worms to try and control people, those said people had to be lured to the temple and then taken all the way down to the Queen's nest chamber to be infected.

It's as such practically impossible for someone to get infected by a brain worm in a timely manner that their disappearance wouldn't be noticed.

As well Geonosians are a traditional and conservative people. They likley only are willing to use the worms for functions other than guarding the Queens if that person they are going to possess holds some form of strategic or political value that controlling them would be beneficial.

No Hutt would be allowed into the Republic navy as their species has a strong penchant for crime. However if you wished to have him be a criminal of some higher regard who got captured then escapes that is perfectly fine. You could say he got his tactical skill from fighting rival pirates and such over Hutt territory or something similar

Why would most colonists on a backwater world such as Tatooine care if you go missing? You're right in all other regards.

It's an alternate timeline yes, but the Point of Divergence is Anakin's attack on the Separatist Council on Mustafar, which happened after her canonical death at the Jedi Temple.


Gotcha, never seen an RP based on that point before.
Ill have to ask for OP exemption


Wasn't it in canon she was executed onboard the Invisible Hand before Anakin and Obi-Wan in a RoTS deleted scene?

There was a lot of really dumb shit.

For the majority of bad things in the old EU there was some great stuff; KOTOR 1-2 (SWTOR is shit), The Dark Forces and Jedi Knight Series, The Thrawn Trilogy (minus Luuke).

As time has gone on, more and more stuff from the EU has been made canon. Delta Squad, Darth Bane, Hammerheads, and even Revan was almost made canon

It's cause of people, like David Filoni who loves things from the EU who keeps adding things to Rebels (Thrawn). So don't diss on the new canon, cause more keeps getting added.

Yeah, the EU was sort of becoming... eh...

Although I am upset that Jan and Kyle didn't appear in Rogue One. :(

The primarily serve a role of protecting them by possessing dead Geonosians in the catacomb temples to defend their Queen. Although we have witnessed geonosians use the brain worms to try and control people, those said people had to be lured to the temple and then taken all the way down to the Queen's nest chamber to be infected.

It's as such practically impossible for someone to get infected by a brain worm in a timely manner that their disappearance wouldn't be noticed.

As well Geonosians are a traditional and conservative people. They likley only are willing to use the worms for functions other than guarding the Queens if that person they are going to possess holds some form of strategic or political value that controlling them would be beneficial.

Why would most colonists on a backwater world such as Tatooine care if you go missing? You're right in all other regards.

However, Canon is stupid, and Legends is much more fun, with her surviving until around 3 BBY



Gotcha, never seen an RP based on that point before.
Ill have to ask for OP exemption


Wasn't it in canon she was executed onboard the Invisible Hand before Anakin and Obi-Wan in a RoTS deleted scene?

No you can see her on the council late in the movie. The scene was deleted for a reason

I might shape him into a crime lord that got the tactics elsewhere, I'm also thinking of having him join the republic navy, get a court martial and arrested, then is broken out of prison by some mercenaries that he contacted using his underground connections, that's what I'm planning on doing as a backstory, just going to make sure if that would be ok with you.

No Hutt would be allowed into the Republic navy as their species has a strong penchant for crime. However if you wished to have him be a criminal of some higher regard who got captured then escapes that is perfectly fine. You could say he got his tactical skill from fighting rival pirates and such over Hutt territory or something similar

Fighting pirates? that'll do.
so to summarize in order to begin to fix my Application, I'll have to make the following changes:
1. slash the fleet he owns, I'm thinking
two big ships (munificent frigates or an old ship (Hammerhead frigate?) he got on the black market),
one corvette
four small IPVs
roughly 50 fighters and 30 bombers
2. cut out the part where he Joins the Republic Navy, and say he fights pirates to defend hutt space.
3. maybe have him be engaged in some shady buisness, get imprisoned and then freed.
