  • DARTH MAUL

    Real Name: Unknown
    Weapon: Sith Lightsaber
    Motivation: Vengeance
    Comments: A creature of pure evil raised and bred for one purpose, and one purpose alone - the total destruction of the Jedi







    OBI-WAN KENOBI

    Member of: The Jedi Order
    Padawan to: Qui-Gon Jinn
    Doubts: The prophecy of the Chosen One
    Comments: Though he was but a young Jedi during the blockade of Naboo, he was already a cautious man, who never approached a situation without careful thought. The sudden appearance of a Sith warrior was a huge shock to both him and his master.







    QUI-GON JINN

    Believes in: The Living Force
    Helps free: Anakin Skywalker
    Assigned to protect: Queen Amidala
    Comments: More mystical in his beliefs than many of his fellow Jedi, Qui-Gon Jinn explored many undiscovered aspects of the Force.







    R2-R9

    Model: Astromech Droid
    Manufacturer: Industrial Automaton
    Vehicle: Naboo Royal Starship
    Comments: One of the astromech droids assigned to the conveyance of the royal personage of Naboo, R2-R9 displayed the characteristic bravery of his model when he trundled out onto the exterior hull of the Royal Starship, only to be obliterated by a turbolaser blast.

    Poll
    Now that information about Celebration Anaheim is coming out, the Probe Droid is curious if you plan on attending the biggest party of 2015...
    You couldn't stop me from attending!
    I'll thinking about it...
    I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
    I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
    That's your uncle talking.
    Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
    No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
