I have a character that sort of breaks some of the typical rules of force users bouncing around in my head,  if the ST is willing to hear me out I"ll join this game.

Essentially a human replicant droid created by sith alchemy capable of using the force.

As long as it's not overpowered it's fine. I'd like force powers to stay close to what the canon powers are but otherwise I'm flexible.

Character sheet

Appearance:


Name: Darth Alvara (cover name: Amanda)

Age: 28

Gender: Human Female

Class: Sith Inquisitor (cover class: consular)

Equipment: Laser pistol, Yellow light saber

Bio:
Darth Alvara's real name is known only by her most trusted lieutenants, and a few other select Sith. To everyone else, she is Amanda, a respectable Consular of the Republic. As a Sith Inquisitor, Amanda is very powerful with the force. She trained for most of her young years at the academy on Korriban, and then specialized as an assassin, doing under cover missions. She apprenticed for only 5 years under the previous leader of the Sith Academy, before she killed him. She could have then taken the position, but instead decided that would be too boring for her. She gave herself the title of Darth, and put one of her very few trusted people at the head of the Academy instead.

Since then, she keeps doing under cover missions, but the ones that increase her own powers. She works for herself, and is very unpredictable. By using her network of contacts, especially the ones on Korriban, she learns what she needs to know to find the best targets to attack and weaken the Republic and increasing her own reach. Being an expert at disguises and manipulation, she manages to go pretty much anywhere she wants under the guise of being a Consular. She keeps her saber in a pouch on her belt as to not raise suspicions, and even if someone notices her force powers, the fact that she uses a Yellow saber allows her to claim she is actually a Jedi under a special mission.

Her personality also varies a lot, based on the situation. She is usually very pleasant, and keeps a friendly front whenever she needs to. Her heart, however, is dark, and her only focus is to increase her own force powers, regardless of any other concern. By focusing all of her training on her mental powers, she reached a very high skill level and can outdo most others in force combat. However, her skills with a laser rifle and her lightsaber are below those of well trained masters, but still above average.

She currently has no apprentice altho she would like to find one, mostly to accomplish the more risky, menial tasks that she thinks are beneath her.

Limits: Death, lost limbs

Character sheet

Appearance:



Name: Avalian

Age:  appears to be 18

Gender:  female

Class:   Mechanical force user

Equipment:  two saber  staffs (1 red, 1 purple.)  Grappling  hook,  cortis weave forearms. 

Bio:  Avalian is an abomination onto the universe,  a droid who’s mechanical frame was soaked in the blood of force sensitives,  until those very mechanical features of hers were capable of using the force as well.  She spent her early years as an assassin.  More often the not,  because she was able to appear as a typical,  though somewhat specialist machine  her presence was often overlooked.  Yet, as she became more and more self aware her desire to gain power increased.

While the academy at Korriban would not accept her,  she sought out other means of learning how to manipulate the dark side,  mostly via her own personal experimentation.  Her creator,  was not displease feeling as if he created a life form that was perfectly suited too the dark side.  Of  course she could not reproduce,  but, age would never be a problem to the mechanical monstrosity.

As for the machine’s personality,  she is chaotic…  which is not surprising.  She has essentially absorbed  the lives of countless force users.  One moment, she can be completely serene and without emotion before exploding without warning.

Limits: Surviving irreparable frame damage.

erm i hate to be nit picky about this but the starwars-verse specifies that mechanical life forms cannot use the force even if they were once human or created via the force.........that's why grivous couldn't use the force.........

While it does specify that only living creatures, non-synthetic, can be force sensitive, that doesn't mean that the replica droid couldn't be modified to make it look like they have access to the Force. Magnets, stun rods, etc. There are countless systems a droid could use to blend in among force users, to outsiders. Only those that can sense the force would know the difference.

However she did specify Sith Alchemy so she might have 'trace' powers. But she wouldn't have the same abilities as normal force users, hers would be significantly limited. But as I said before there are countless systems she could be installed with that could compensate for the numerous powers that were missing.

Character sheet

Appearance:

Armored:

Name: Sha'rei Falenas

Alias: Ferid

Age: 25

Gender: Female

Class: Bounty Hunter(Jedi Outcast)

Equipment: Lightsaber(Violet), datapad, Mandalorian Armor, Crushgaunts(Beskar'gam), long barrel blaster pistol(Modified for heavy stun)

Ship: YT-2400 light freighter

Bio: Raised on Dathomir she rejected her family when they tried to force her to the dark side of the Force. She rejected it, clinging to the belief that life was sacred, and that the only people who should kill are those prepared to be killed. She was tortured for years, causing drastic damage, and horrific scars across her body. It was not until she finally snapped, and used the village's rancor to destroy their former masters, that she had the chance to flee. She fled far, being constantly hounded by the Night Sisters.

She was lost for nearly a week, before a Jedi found her. She was taken in and treated by them. The treatments helped but when pressed into a corner she was prone to violent reactions, accidentally slaying one of her training partners in the backlash. Horrified she was placed in a mental institution, but no walls could hold her. She escaped, vanishing on the world of Mandalore, beyond the reach of the Jedi.

It was there that she created a new identity. She kept her practices to herself, regarding her powers in the Force. She grew strong in the Force, gathering her strength, but always careful to avoid the dark side. With her training among the Mandalorians she became a bounty hunter, going out into the world to make her way.

She does not hate the Jedi, but she doesn't trust them any more than she trusts the Sith.

Limits: Falling to the dark side of the Force.

Starting location: Mos Eisley, Tatooine

If that's fine with you then Elohim you would only have some trace amount of force powers, but since you're a mechanical user you could have extra systems to provide similar powers through artificial means.

Great another bounty hunter. Thankfully the Creed keeps the two from each other unless your gal doesn't follow the Creed and are bountied then all bets are off.  ;)

Seriously we have two professionals there is plenty of work for us in the game with the cuurent state of affairs.

I have a duo of characters I created for another Starwars RP but never got the chance to play them the only problem is they are another set of bounty hunters with some similarities to other characters here.. Sooo...I'll let you guys look them over and decide if you want me to join this one with them or if i should start from scratch.

Name: Gaxx
Age: 26
Race: Miraluka
Native Planet/where you grew up: Alpheridies/ deep space, various spacestations, and alien worlds.

History:  Gaxx grew up as the only child of the wealthy merchant, smuggler, and gifted starpilot Garan and Vash Lyxx, the youngest daughter of famous shipbuilder and Miralukan Industrialist, Varac. Tragically, Vash died while giving birth to Gaxx.The death of his mother resulted in Gaxx being dragged from System to system with only infrequent visits to his homeworld. Instead He spent his youth in deepspace, exploring spacestations, or wandering across alien worlds, under the watchful eye of his bodyguard and caretacker droid, LOM-S(Loomis). During this time Gaxx picked up several skills that would serve him well in his later career as a bounty hunter, including an intuitive command of languages. After the Death of Gaxx's father, at the hand of a cheated Glitterstim Merchant; Gaxx commandeered his fathers ship, Blind Luck, and set out on his own. Now with LOM-S, modified for his new duties, at his side Gaxx is building quite the reputation for himself. Gaxx prides himself on bringing in his bounties alive, a distinction that often gets him more work and a larger reward then his competition.

Psychology: Doggedly determined, Once he takes on a bounty he does not stop and will attack any who get in his way, Serious with an easy charm, Adaptive with a knack for improvisation.

Skill set: Hunting (Specialized), Pilot(Specialized), Small arms(Specialized), Tracking(Specialized), Hand to hand combat (Expert), Linguist(Expert), Splicer (Expert), Ships repairs (Advanced), Ships Maintenance(Advanced), Survival (Advanced), Animal Handling (Competent), Heavy Arms(Competent), Field medic (Competent).

Failings: Has a hard time relating to the sighted world, does not understand concepts like beauty, or art. Can be cold, calculating, and overly logical. Does not trust or get attached to others, Rarely speaks, unless looking for information.

Appearance: Gaxx is 6'4" and weighs in at 245 Lbs, with a classical commando style build. His eyes are covered with a blood red bandanna with the Mirlukan word Hunter sown across it in black calligraphy. His clothes are usually a mix of  Black, Grey, and Blood Red. His hair is black and military cut, His eyes if exposed are missing completely, only empty sockets remain.

Weapons: Nueronic whip, collapsible electrostaff, 2 Yil Sc'rath, Stealth-2vx Palm shooter (sleep and truth serum darts), DEMP2 Pistol, Wrist blaster(stun and blaster settings)

Other: Clothing changes depending on the job and function he is carrying out, among his favorites are The Creshaldyne Ind. Camo Scout Armor for night and more clandestine missions, and spacers clothes with a long black shadowsilk captains coat and a Barabel Microbe Armor Vest for more civilian endeavors. Occasionally will use heavier blast armor but dislikes it as it limits his movement too much for his liking. Also known to use several types of nonlethal weapons, preferring to incapacitate and imprison his bounties instead of killing them. His uncanny tracking ability comes from a specialized use of his natural Force Sight which allows his to hone in on his targets based on their bio-force signature. This ability works two ways: 1. If on the trail of a bounty and he finds something left behind by his target he can use that object or place ,in the case of camps or ships, like a compass to hone in on the general direction they took from that spot. 2. By possessing an object of the targets he can hone his senses to the targets individual signature, something that renders disguise, and hiding impossible and allows him to "see" you within 50 ft, no matter the obstacles in between. He requires such tokens from his employers before taking on a job, as well as something personal of the employers themselves, as insurance.

Name: LOM-S (Loomis)
Age: 20
Race: Droid, Industrial Automaton LOM-series Protocol Droid Special Edition
Manufacturers Planet: Nubia

History: Created to protect and teach Gaxx, LOM-S was specially designed to respond to Gaxx voice and protect him at all costs. He was given to Gaxx as a present on his 5Th Birth day by Gaxxs' Grandfather, Varac, who "could not bear the thought of his only grandson dying as well, especially so far from home..

Psychology: Fiercely protective and loyal to Gaxx, Hates to be shut down, patient and a good teacher/storyteller.

Skill Set: Linguist(Specialized), Protocols and Customs(Specialized), Security(Specialized), Splicer Droid (Expert) part of an upgrade Gaxx started years ago), Heavy arms (Expert), pilot (competetent).

Failings: Appearance makes him stand out, has a tendency to shoot first ask questions later.

Weapons: R-88 Suppressor riot rifle, Electro Mesh Netlauncher(bolted to shoulder.) 2 heavy blasters (concealed in upper arms.panels)

Appearance:


Name: Jaden

Age: 23

Gender: Female

Class: Sith Apprentice

Equipment: Lightsaber, purple

Bio:
Jaden was like any other Jedi student, just one who simply grew disillusioned as she hit her teens and her attitude became more flippant and interests more material. From that point it was pretty much inevitable she'd leave, with the only difference being whether it was by her masters' hands or her own. She chose the latter; one could only take so many frowns and whispers of disappointment.

Upon entering open space the young jedi immediately felt free of all responsibility and proceeded to basically do whatever she wished, utilizing her uncanny ability to manipulate minds to live a life of adventure and even luxury. It was her abuse of this power however that would spell her downfall as she picked one mind too many; the last being that of a powerful sith. She was captured with ease not long after.

At first she resisted, seeing no difference between the new order and her old one; a mistake she paid for with her right-eye. Soon enough though, with the right "encouragement", she was sith-ing with the best of them, or at least feigning it well enough so as not to make a mockery of her "esteemed" lords and save herself from even more "encouragement".

She's generally a social animal who loves life's small pleasures, like clothes, food, etc, but tends to walk a fine line as she strains to maintain a somewhat pseudo-freedom while following orders.

Limits:
Beside her obvious blind spot, she's also not the type to take much serious; even a fight to the death. Don't think she's given up on life however, just expect her to run or talk more than stand and fight. Also, while not the most adept with a lightsaber, it's best not to get in reach of her fists or legs; hand-to-hand was always her favourite training and she does like to improvise at times.

RubySlippers, there should be Republic military officers at this point.  Why couldn't you play one?

And Elfguy, we may want to have one thread per planet/nearby space so that the RP make a bit more sense when you read it.  Or, do you consider that divisive?  Perhaps everyone should start their post with their Character Name and location if we only use one thread total?

Grievous was not a droid.  His lack of Force ability was because he was not Force sensitive.
