My Boys!

Hector “Arr” Barbossa Barbossa is the IG head of the radio station. After going back to finish out his Pirates of the Caribbean canon last year over the course of several decades (changes to his cragginess from age 20ish to 50ish: none. Growth as a person: also none), he was marooned here by his crew. He stole reacquired a shiny bauble from a Greek museum and spent the summer on the run from Interpol. As soon as he figures out where the island's gone, he'll be taking his place back at the radio station with his normal grace and attention to detail (hint: still none).

He enjoys rum, wenches, a really excellent drum solo, and rum. He also has a slight tendency to dress up as a shrub and spy on people to get reports for the news, but he generally leaves the majority of the reporting up to the squirrels.

...yes, squirrels.

Levi "Biff" of Nazareth is back from Jerusalem, where he spent a summer macking on tourists and teaching them all his interpretation of the events of the New Testament (his canon is Lamb. It seems that he, the BFF of one Yeshua bar Jehovah of Nazareth (he called him Josh, not Jesus) was completely left out of the works of the evangelists. The horror!

Biff invented sarcasm (so he'll tell you), and has the gifts of tongues (ask any girl he's ever known *rimshot*), and has a Thing about angels (he thinks they're pretty much universally stupid. The one he's met probably started half of the dumb blonde jokes in the world and doesn't help that impression), but he's going to be really, really excited to be in the 21st century, especially once he discovers that the island has pizza, Chinese food, and a mini-golf course. (His experiences with what exists in the 21st century has been a little limited since he was kept in a hotel in St. Louis while he was writing and the angel guarded teh remote like it was the Ark of the Covenant.)

Oh, he also knows kung-fu. He's coming back as a townie and will be working over at Wellspring Arms and Meditation. He won't try to paint you blue. Probably. Though you'd look good blue. He is BFF with Barney Stinson, a turn of events that fills me with terror.

Anakin “Sullen is a Lifestyle Choice” Skywalker began life at Fandom as a student, graduated, went home, got secretly married and had his whole life go to hell. He turned back up 20 years later (or four days…) as Darth Vader, there to check up on his son Luke and convert him to the Dark Side. Or kill him. His boss didn’t really care much in either direction. Episodes V and VI played out in game and now he’s back, redeemed, remarried (to Rory Gilmore. It makes sense with the three and a half years of backstory. Really) and in a shiny new cloned body. He teaches ethics. Yes, he thinks it’s hysterical too. He’s a good guy, but not really a nice one.

The important bit: Very, very few people know about the link between Vader and Anakin and for good reason. Being a planet-killing homicidal embodiment of evil isn’t exactly what Anakin had planned out for his life and he’s not the chattiest guy on personal matters to begin with. Currently on the island, the only people who know about the link (other than the administration, who know everything, naturally, and now I have this mental image of a filing cabinet in Zoe’s office labeled “Skywalker”) are Ben, Tahiri, Jaina, Rikku and John Sheppard (and Anakin doesn’t know about Rikku or John). If you think it is vitally important for your character to know, drop me an email and we’ll see what we can work out. As far as Anakin is concerned, he’s told everyone who needs to know. Regarding the death of Padmé, the details of what happened will be kept between Anakin, Rory, and Luke (and Rikku, though, again, Anakin doesn’t know that) and most likely never, ever spoken of again.

Powers and such: Anakin is the most powerful Marty Stu Jedi from an Order that uses telekinesis, telepathy, enhanced senses and the ability to see the past, present and future in order to enact the always nebulous will of the Force. He’s a fully trained Knight who sat on the Jedi Council (even if he wasn’t a master, and he won't exactly mention that) and though he’s more than a little unorthodox in his approach to Jedi matters, he’s very touchy about receiving the respect he feels is due to him. He might look 26, but he’s not actually 26 and treating him like he’s some young guy who doesn't know what he's talking about will lead to tears and pain. Generally not his.

Getting on Anakin’s bad side: Even though nursing grudges and holding on too tightly put him on the express train to the Dark Side, Anakin hasn’t learned to tone down that charming aspect of his personality. He’s absolutely the kind of guy who has an alphabetized list of everyone who’s ever wronged him (he has pages on Obi-Wan) and once you’re on that list, you tend to stay there. The fastest track to having a pissed off Chosen One on your case is messing with the people he cares about (admittedly, a pretty small list): Luke, Jaina, and Rory (and Ben, once they are introduced). He won’t forgive—or forget—an insult to any of them and his standard of what constitutes insulting behavior is probably much higher than the ones the characters themselves would use.

That being said, he’s a pretty soft touch on broken characters, mostly because he’s been there himself (not that he’ll tell you that. Anakin lets his guard down around exactly two people and he killed one of them on the Death Star). It’s just in his own way: if he thinks you’re being stupid, he’ll tell you so and in very blunt terms. There was a reason Obi-Wan was part of the team: Anakin’s no diplomat.

Anything else? He’s also pretty much awesome with a lightsaber or in anything he can convince to fly. If you need a character to cut loose and kill things, he's totally your guy.

Luke “Whining is Hereditary, Who Knew?” Skywalker, an alumnus back in a galaxy far, far away, is his father rationally softened.

Not that he wants to hear that.

He's currently off running Rogue Squadron and working out the logistics for restarting the Jedi (thanks, Anakin...).

Ben "Fry is Finally Out of Skywalkers" Skywalker is the freshman year son of Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade. If you know the Extended Universe at all, this means he's kind of concentrated win when he chooses to be.

The only child of Luke and Mara, Ben was born during the middle of the war with the Yuuzan Vong (the New Jedi Order series, taking place about twenty five years after the events of SW: A New Hope), and as is habit for SW kiddies, sequestered on a number of hidden planets because it’s hard to fight a galactic war with an infant in a snugglie the authors don’t know what to do with small children it was too dangerous for him to be out in the galaxy where he could get kidnapped. Naturally, he got kidnapped anyway. Ben was incredibly empathic, so he could feel deaths through the Force (this galactic war being especially high on the body count) and eventually stopped touching the Force altogether and instictively hid from the Force in a way that terrified his parents (Jedi being rather notorious for checking on how people are by reaching out for them through the galaxy. Not feeling the baby didn’t do great things for Luke and Mara).

The scarring effect of the war on bitty Ben left him completely refusing to use the Force, a development his parents (both incredibly powerful Jedi) didn’t know how to overcome. Ben wanted to be more like his Uncle Han, doing things on his own without using all of the cool Jedi shortcuts. This fundamental lack of understanding between father and son only got worse as the years progressed (ahh, Star Wars. Always with the daddy issues).

It took Ben until he was about nine years old to express even the slightest interest in using the Force. He became the informal apprentice of his cousin Jacen Solo. Despite Mara’s misgivings about Jacen, Luke and she allowed the teaching to continue because Ben was so averse to being taught by either of his parents.

Four years later (welcome to the Legacy of the Force series!), Jacen and Ben were a Jedi team sent on a secret mission to shut down the Corellians’ attempt to restart their planet-destroying weapon. They were also the team sent to investigate the assassination of the Corellian Prime Minister, which lead to Plot and Spoilers.

Ben is fourteen years old (for those who know the canon, about twenty pages into Sacrifice), with blond red strawberry blond red hair (stupid canon can’t make up its mind. I say red) cut short except for a braid behind his right ear (he decided to restart the Padawan look) and blue eyes. He has his father’s curiosity, fearlessness and stubbornness, and, fortunately, his mother’s intelligence. Mature for his age (which happens when you’re killing people…), he’s also incredibly analytical and doesn’t take anything on face value. He’s 5’5”, but is going to eventually be taller than his father—he takes after his grandfather that way. He also has a genuine English Coruscanti accent. I have no idea why.

Ben is from a different version of Stars Wars canon from Anakin, Luke, Gavin, or Jaina (or Jolee, Tahiri, and Myn for that matter). There’s no direct link to any of them for him—he’ll have his own versions of each of them back home (except Jolee and Anakin, obviously).

Powers and such: Jacen once described Ben as a “Jedi wannabe”, and while Jacen is a bit of a dick, the description is fairly apt. Ben prefers a blaster to a lightsaber and using police investigative techniques to trusting his feelings. That being said, Ben is still the son of two of the most powerful Jedi in canon and has amazing potential. He just hasn’t tapped into it yet. He is incredibly empathic—Luke and Mara make a point to block their thoughts and feelings around him—and has a photographic memory when he isn’t being mindwhammied by his cousin. He’s also an incredibly fast learner. He picked up political assassination in a day of training, and is a very accomplished liar. Thanks for that, Jacen. He can also hide himself completely in the Force, a trick that scares the bejesus out of his parents. I'm sure it won't make him any friends here among his AU family, either.

As far as the player goes, I'm on EST and gave birth to (naturally) the most beautiful baby girl ever at the end of July. I will reply to all pings, but I also wander away from the keyboard to do things like change diapers and feed another human. ;)

You are not out of Skywalkers, you haven't gotten to Kol and Cade yet. *introduces to Legacy*

...A bit?

Ahahaha, I was about to say there were still Kol and Cade!

Although I haven't actually read Legacy yet, I just lose hours of my life at a time to Wookieepedia. I need to do that.

Beware. A certain SOMEONE *coughs in his general direction* gave me the comics to read which I didn't get a chance to do till the night before I got on a plane to leave them all behind. Which was why I was up till 3 am reading and waking up early to finish them and telling myself no I was NOT allowed to make a journal for Marasiah, at least not till I had icons.

What's that? Jolee makes a specific point of telling Anakin that he's some young guy who doesn't know what he's talking about every time they talk and there's no Bindo-flavored tears and pain?

Anakin Skywalker: ALL TALK.
