  • 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.
