<cracks knuckles> Oh, boy! Do I have a post for you! (And great idea, Maryck.)

Doz Jalth, Zabrak, 80s.
The Jedi Order, Espionage, History, Connections
Spoiler: show
Doz is a retired Jedi Shadow and Master of the Jedi Order. She sits on the Custodum Enclave council as a senior member. Blunt and gruff, she could serve as an excellent antagonist for a young Jedi trying to earn their stripes (“dour Master Jalth doesn’t like me!”), or anyone going against the aims of the Jedi or the Republic. Her advanced age and storied career gives her ample opportunity to know the right person, have the right insight, or to have been a thorn in the right Imperial’s side for the past forty years (or whatever strikes your fancy!). While Doz, generally speaking, no longer attends to missions herself, she can certainly serve as a quest-giver, informant, guide, and behind-the-scenes antagonist (although, with the right motivation, she could also be persuaded into the field).


Dassalya Nasadee, Mirialan, late 30s/early 40s.
The Jedi Order, Healer, Compassionate Do-Gooder
Spoiler: show
A healer in the Jedi Order, Dassalya can serve as a nexus point for anything medical related. Nasty plague somewhere? Dass can help. Going on a dangerous mission? Always bring a healer. Want to release a nasty plague somewhere? Dass will be there to stop you! She also has relatively strong connections to her homeworld of Mirial and can provide information, through her family, on the political, sociological, and economic status of that area of the galaxy—which happens to be right near the border between Empire and Republic space. She’s also a general “do-gooder” and can easily be worked in doing Jedi do-gooder things wherever needed. She is a compassionate person who will likely give anyone an opportunity to surrender or change their ways. Due to “oh no there’s been an accident I can’t go”-ness, Dassalya may also serve as a quest-giver to other Jedi (and those trusted by the Jedi).


Tamminick Nasadee, Mirialan, early/mid 30s.
The Republic, Slicing, Bounty Hunting, Senatorial Politics
Spoiler: show
Originally a failed student, Tamminick joined the Republic navy as an electronic warfare specialist in his early twenties. After suffering a debilitating injury affecting his memory, he was honourably discharged and became a two-bit bounty hunter. Now he serves as an aid in the Zeltron delegation of the Republic Senate under Senator Dreikan. As such, he has a wide net of individuals with whom he may have, or have had, positive or antagonistic encounters. He’s currently focused on not jeopardizing his career in government, but can certainly serve as a point of information for those seeking non-critical gossip on politics, connections to the senate or other Republic political entities, some bounty hunters, slicing, and outdated military workings. Given the right circumstances, he could be convinced to assist in a cause or come out of the woodwork to serve as an antagonist. He can also direct folks to his sister, Dassalya Nasadee, or Dr. Kyri Orell for medical-related issues.


Brinla Ruun, Twi’lek, early 30s.
The Republic, Republic Military, Political Activism, Visual Arts
Spoiler: show
Brinla is an art student from one of Coruscant’s universities, but joined up with the military shortly after graduation. She served for three years before the Republic honourably discharged her in accordance with Zakuul’s de-armament demands. Brinla has a few art pieces around Coruscant galleries, but her artistic career has yet to take off. Anyone looking for a touchstone in the artistic community of Coruscant, survivors of the bombings of Galactic City (both at the end of the Great Galactic War and by the Eternal Fleet), or the political/social environment of Coruscant’s mid-levels should seek her out. Additionally, individuals seeking to squash social unrest or commentary on Republic political policy or criminals who are taking advantage of Coruscant’s desperate middle- and lower-class citizens could find her to be an antagonist.


Nulaa Ulair, Twi’lek, mid 30s.
Independent, Smuggling, Criminal, Anti-Slavery, Connections, Information
Spoiler: show
Nulaa Ulair is the person you go to if you have a questionably or less-than-legal job you want done. Arising from a smuggling background, Nulaa has an extensive network of contacts and can generally set you up with whoever you need to meet if she doesn’t assist you personally. She’s closely tied to Phalanx Station and can often be found there. While anti-Imperial and anti-Sith, Nulaa has been known to work with such individuals under certain conditions. She is staunchly anti-slavery and can easily be persuaded to go out of her way to make trouble for anyone associated with the trade; however, she also has a reputation for ruthlessness and, depending on who you speak to, has quite the list of assaults and murders to her name. Characters seeking to make contact with the underworld, purchase information, or learn about the smuggling trade will find her to be an excellent individual to seek out… as long as they’re willing to pay and/or can ingratiate themselves to her. She will be an enthusiastic ally to anti-slavers and a dogged antagonist for anyone trying to capitalize on any of her several bounties, foul her schemes, or assist in the slave trade. She can easily serve (and has served!) as a quest-giver.


Quenlyn Dorran, Human (Cybernetic Enhancements), late 30s.
Independent, Hutt Space, Criminal, Slicing
Spoiler: show
A (former?) associate of Nulaa’s, Quenlyn “Queenie” Dorran is a savant slicer. Before signing on with Nulaa during the Galactic War, she ran with a pirate gang in the Mid-Rim. Consummately bored, Quenlyn can be enticed into a job by the promise of challenge or by a hefty paycheque. She is a native of Hutt space and can often be found on Nar Shaddaa working for various criminal elements. Those seeking to overturn a Hutt’s powerbase or running up against Nulaa Ulair may find her to be a worthy antagonist. Those working with Nulaa, seeking an independant slicer, or who is friendly with the Hutts may see her as an ally.


------

Drat, I have been waylaid by life! I shall return to finish adding all my independant and Imperial types to the list.

I like this game. I like Lana and Theron, seeing Jedi Knights and Sith duke it out, bounty hunters and smugglers being sassy, taking on the bad ("bad"?) guys, and generally being a Big Goddamn Hero. Lemda Avesta was my first same sex romance, and, as a newly outed bisexual, it was fantastic to watch my toon kiss another girl and think "ha ha! That could be me!". This is the game in which I discovered MMO roleplay, and it's been one of the most delightful discoveries of my recent life. It's given me joy, it's given me heartache, and it's given me everything in between. The idea of this game not being around anymore, nor the community and friends it has given me, is a thought that brings me sorrow.

That being said, I'm still doing a lot of learning about myself. One of those things is figuring out how to say "no" and understanding my limits. I would like to facilitate more roleplay events. I have a couple going! I'm just... not great at keeping the momentum up, apparently. You know the quote that goes, "never make promises when you're happy and never make a decision when you're angry"? That's me. I do the happy bit all the time. The wrong happy bit. I feel good and have lots of energy so I put together a bunch of grand ideas and set them in motion. Then I... start to feel less good. Maybe work is getting busier. Maybe anxiety got me on the ropes when I thought I was going in for the KO. Or maybe I just said "yes" to too many fun in-game things and spread myself too thin. (That's the one that really gets me all the time.) So, long story short, I'd like to be a crafter of stories, but I have to be honest with myself and admit it's something I can only occasionally do. I'm not going to be the person who's consistently running events... but I can and am the GM who will have something set up for folks every once in a while.

As for being an RPer... if I could fill my day, every day, with RP, I'd probably do it. But there's that thing about being a responsible member of society and taking care of oneself, you know? Which... see the above paragraph. Is something I'm working on being better at. So I'm around, and often very happy to hop in-game or participate! It's just that sometimes I have to take time for myself, which is why I'm not logged in as often as I used to be.

Face claims take two! I present to thee:


Ames just has the perfect "everything is an utter disappointment and I'm always angry" look that Vedriat is near-constantly wearing.


The freckles. Yes, the freckles! Just add some nasty shrapnel scars, extensive cybernetics, and stick her face on Gabi Garcia's powerful body, and you have the lovely, awkward, Scottish-accent carrying bounty hunter almost none of you have met.

I'm the same as Jaydek! Some time ago, I developed this spreadsheet for myself and opened it up to the rest of the community. I have a more personal version for myself which lists the same events in addition to milestones in my characters' lives and their ages at the time. It's been very helpful for confirming details and in keeping game timelines more coherent in my head.

Welcome to the forums/welcome back to the game! :grin:

You may know this already, but be sure to join the OOC channels in SWTOR: /cjoin imperialooc and republicooc respectively. Look forward to seeing you around!

Nulaa is certainly setting up bets on this race, for anyone who has underworld-ish connections. The odds currently favour Pehn!

I'd like to second Cyone's comments! Lots of fun and was interesting, for me, to take Doz out on her first in-game mission. :cheer:

Here are a few to start!


Except Dassalya has a much warmer and fuller smile than Gong!



As soon as I saw Maurer's smile, I went "oh yeah. That's Tamminick." He's a little older, now, than Maurer's pic shows.


Except age Dhillon another thirty years. Heh.

I look forward to being there! :D

References, @Hawking. Lots and lots of references. References up the wazoo. And thank you all for the kind words! They are so very much appreciated.  :aww:

@Athreon has kindly allowed me to share with you all my latest piece. It's his commission, so please do not share it or use it without his permission! I struggled with this baby for about two and a half months on and off while travelling. Feet. I swear. They are my bane. Remember those references I mentioned? Remind me never to try to turn someone in high heels into someone in flats ever again.

However, without further ado, I present to you all Athreon's Kjel'kia!

Thank you @Auryn for hosting the most excellent Masquerade event this evening! I had so much fun (even if things were a little wobbly for Adeliey), and look forward to all the RP that has been spawned by it. To everyone who attended (there are many of you), thanks for making the night as entertaining as it was.

I was excited about the renewal of the Jedi Custodum council and cranked these out in a couple hours. Here we have Doz Jalth as a young Jedi Knight before the Great Galactic war.



And here we see Doz after over 70 years of service to the Order and as a Master serving on the Custodum Council, present day.

Because it is the masquerade tonight, let me start things off with a picture of my masquerade attendee, Adeliey Innesaud, Mandalorian Zeltron Extraordinaire! Don't worry, she has about six different weapons hidden on her... somewhere.
