1 Help me make a Jedi on Wed Jun 24, 2015 10:07 pm

This takes place after RTOJ with luke's new order and stuff.

So I'm part of a star wars RP site, and need ideas for an interesting Jedi character. In the site timeline the Sith have taken up most of the galactic north and the Jedi has been struggling under countless defeats to the Sith. Recently the Jedi council had a schism where multiple members have died (yes, it got that real) and assigned a new council, kicking out the previous grand master for reasons (getting impregnated by a sith lord). The New Jedi council and the separatists are still loyal to the light, but distrust each other for reasons that should seem obvious.

My character is part of the Jedi separatists, where everyone would be a gray Jedi in the since that he doesn't have to follow the council's orders and act on his own accord. My character would be a male, firstly and be a Light Jedi (in the since that he follows the code).

This is where you guys help me out. I need to come up with an interesting backstory and personality for him. I'd imagine him being the hot blooded type, cavalier and manipulative (sort of like how Obi-Wan was in A New Hope).

Maybe tie his backstory to events from Jedi Academy?

The Site timeline takes place long afterwards.

Hhmmm. Let's see...

NAME:
HGHT:
WGHT:
RACE:
SEX: (MALE)
AFFILIATION & CLASS: JEDI SEPARATISTS ... GUARDIAN/CONSULAR/SENTINEL
BACKSTORY: (SINGULAR, DEFINING PAST EVENT)

Given this is an RP, there's no shame in borrowing inspiration directly from another source and developing it from there. Hell... in one SWRP (oasiz.net... is that even still around?), someone I knew actually borrowed directly from both Jaden Korr and Kyle Katarn's characters without most in the chat ever knowing. Until I played more retro video games afterward and went like "oooh... right."

Good luck. I'm here if you need me.

Link to this RP? I'd like to have reference on the current status of the universe before I write something resembling a Jedi.

I'm interested in making a warmongering type of Jedi who is kind of a jerk. Here is what I have so far. I'll have to delete it later.

Well I already know you wanted a jedi but I feel like a Sith Spy would of been a much more interesting take on it something like a hydra agent(think Ward form Agents of shield for example)

Spies are a really tricky character for a free form RP environment. I like the idea of a Jedi spy though.

I've played several Star Wars RPs by now and I can only recommend choosing a character that's not human, but an alien race.
Maybe it's different with your RP site, but my experience had it that there always far too many human characters. Aliens are a big part of what makes Star Wars interesting, so make use of that.

Many alien races have special traits and typical things about them that you can use for your character's personality and backstory, so that's quite helpful. And also it's more interesting for other players to interact with you.
