Belongings:
Luke usually doesn’t carry a lot on him, but he does have his lightsaber, which is almost always on him. It’s a plasma-bladed sword-like weapon that, while anyone can turn it on, mastery of the Force is required to properly operate it.


Skills and Powers: Luke is a skilled pilot who can fly just about anything, and inherited his dad’s innate military-style flying ability. He’s also got some of his father’s mechanical skill. By this time in his canon, he’s developed into a good leader and mentor, despite not really being a natural at it. He’s a naturally good swordsman, although there’s likely some Force skill there as well, as he was able to pick up his father’s form of saber fighting after only one exposure to it and has mastered several other forms over his life. He’s skilled to a degree in hand to hand combat and self-defense, whether using the Force to enhance it or not. He's also a skilled shot with a rifle-type weapon, spending a lot of time when he was young shooting pesky womp rats.

He has an ability to see shatterpoints, a Force-guided sense of where something can break or change the course of events. He can boost his natural speed, strength and stamina with the Force, or give a boost to another Force user, most frequently Mara or Leia. He can also enter a battle meld to fight in perfect mental tandem with them. He can use the classic Jedi Mind Trick to influence others, but does so only rarely, due to not being fond of the method. He can also use the Force to disguise himself.

Luke is telepathic to other Force users, and can feel their thoughts and emotions. However, actively probing another person’s mind is something that’s done only with permission, unless there’s good reason. This is heightened somewhat with those closest to him, like Leia, Mara and the Solo children and he can sense things like their pain even if he isn’t consciously connecting to them. He is closest to Mara due to their Force bond, a connection of their essences within the Force. He sometimes tends to detect or finish Mara’s thoughts at times without realizing it, sometimes earning him a playfully snarky response like “get out of my head, Skywalker”.

If injured, he can place himself in a Jedi healing trance and heal himself to a point, even with injuries that others might not survive. Mara will typically wake him from one with “I love you, Luke”, although another code can be arranged for someone else who might need to wake him.

He can shield his Force presence and make himself undetectable to others, and like most Jedi, he can levitate and move objects telekinetically. By now, this even extends to relatively large ones like a vehicle, although the more he exerts himself while using the Force, the more it takes out of him.

In the library, he will find his ability to boost his strength and speed with the Force inhibited greatly. He can draw a small amount, but nothing that would allow him to cause any damage. This includes Force pushing as well. He will be restricted to manipulating and levitating only small objects, smaller than, say, a book or tablet, and probably won’t be able to use the Force to guide in assembling or disassembling things or machines. He’ll be able to defend himself if need be, he just won't be too overly strong, and he'll still be able to use his telepathic and empathic abilities. (I'll put up a permissions post others can tag into and Luke adheres to only using his mental abilities on anyone with permission; he respects privacy.)

History and Personality:
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Luke_Skywalker/Legends
Luke is a small town boy from humble beginnings thrust into an extraordinary life. He has grown over time from a naive, fresh-faced farm kid with dreams of adventure and heroism into a strong, confident hero, albeit one who often finds himself with great responsibilities and roles in life. He's a warrior, negotiator, leader and teacher, as well as a devoted brother, husband and father.

Luke is naturally curious, with a desire to explore and to find new things. He loves to tinker and build, having inherited some of his father's affinity for machines, and he's often happiest when he's flying a spacecraft. He's naturally resourceful, having grown up in a rugged environment where he and his family had to struggle to survive. He's quick-thinking and able to get himself out of a lot of tight situations, such as his encounter with the Wampa on Hoth. He used his lightsaber to free himself and injure the creature in order to escape.

He was a young man who developed close friends, yet felt very alone as he tried to rebuild the Jedi Order entirely on his own. And as the galaxy was pushed from one conflict to another, the things Luke went through weighed on him heavily. He’s more knowledgeable and aware of the sometimes dark reality of his world, and has become a confident, capable, powerful Jedi Master, and yet in some ways, he has changed very little.
He’s developed into a decent mentor and teacher, yet he often feels as though he’s in a bit of flux. He’s grown in his knowledge of the Force over the years, yet still sometimes feels inadequate due to having so little formal training in it. He’s restored the core of the old Order, but wasn’t afraid to change some things that he felt the old Masters had been wrong about, like the ban on marriage and attachments.

Luke's a bit weary and perhaps a little jaded at this point, due to the strain of the war he's fought in for so long, but he still retains his ever-present optimism and his desire to help others, along with his belief in the inherent good in all beings. He’s become a powerful Jedi master, but he’s still the same humble, kindhearted, heroic man he was in the very beginning.

Although he is a warrior, Luke is also a peaceful man at heart, and generally avoids fighting and conflict if at all possible. He’ll try non-violent means to resolve an issue before resorting to a fight. And yet, he is not afraid to defend his friends and family and those who can’t defend themselves. He’s firm in his belief in the Light Side of the Force, and yet, he’s more aware now that things aren’t always black and white, either.

He is a man who tries his best to control his emotions instead of letting them control him. He will get angry if someone he cares about is attacked, but does not want to give into the anger that he knows destroyed his father before him. One good example is his valiant attempt to control his anger at Vader, only to lash out when his sister was threatened. Still, though, Luke did not fully give in and refused to kill his father when he had the chance.

Luke is always very forgiving, with his father being the best evidence of this. Few others would have seen anything worth saving in Vader, but Luke was willing to look past the darkness and evil that had consumed his father and see Anakin Skywalker still trapped within. He was also willing to forgive and slowly befriend Mara, despite her initial hostility and determination to kill him.

Luke is incredibly stubborn and persistent at times, such as his endless pleading with Mara to get her to train as a Jedi. He will not give up once his mind is set on something, and he will keep at it until he gets what he wants. He is prone to taking risks and pushing limits when he feels it’s necessary. However, he is not as reckless as his father once was. He has enough of his mother’s clear-headedness in him to keep him under control fairly well.

Luke’s first loyalty besides his family is the Jedi Order, and that has left him pulled in different directions in recent times. The newer leaders of the New Republic and its successor governments weren’t entirely supportive of the Jedi in general and wanted them to be loyal first to the government, something Luke refused to consider. This left him torn between the two factions quite a bit. Luke has never been big on politics anyway, and was never really known for getting along strongly with those in charge.

Luke has a big tendency to guilt trip when he makes a mistake, even if it isn’t entirely his fault. His actions at Byss with the reborn Palpatine have left him haunted and saddened for years, despite others having forgiven him long ago. He is also still somewhat haunted by the death of his nephew, Anakin, despite knowing that he was too valuable to lead the strike team himself.

Sometimes, Luke can be a bit naïve, like when he hoped to learn more about the Dark Side from within and nearly went completely over before Leia was able to reach him and pull him back. It also led to him once being taken in by someone who claimed to have information on his mother, even though it was really a trick.
Luke is a man who was very inexperienced with women in the beginning, and he has had his heart broken quite a few times since then. One girlfriend turned out to be an Imperial spy, and another seemed to be ‘the one’ only to turn to the Dark Side and betray Luke in the end. He is a romantic at heart, daring to believe that marriage and being a Jedi needn’t be in conflict, unlike the masters of old. However, he was often left to wonder if he would ever find a true soul mate.

Despite both sides being fiercely independent and stubborn, Luke and Mara discovered that they were meant for each other. Luke is very devoted to Mara, yet also willing to respect her independence and strong will. They’ve been through a lot, between Mara’s illness and the constant problems of the war, yet have finally been able to hope that maybe they’ll get time to just be a family as the war finally comes to an end.

Luke is very loyal to his friends and willing to do just about anything to help them, as evidenced by what he and Leia went through trying to save Han. Unfortunately, this can lead him to take undue risks and get a bit reckless if he isn’t careful. Yoda tried to tell him that he would only put his friends in more danger by going to Bespin, but he was determined to go anyway. He’s generally friendly and easygoing, although he may get a little guarded around someone who might not be as open to people with special abilities.

He has a twin bond with Leia, his sister, and is able to share thoughts and feelings and sometimes words with her through the Force. He is very close to her and to Han and the kids. Han is like a big brother to Luke, and the farmboy was able to see who Han really was inside even while the smuggler was still trying to find a way to leave the rebels behind. Luke was instrumental in helping the kids grow up to become strong Jedi themselves, although it hasn’t always been easy. He had to struggle to keep the Solo twins, especially Jaina, from falling to the Dark Side after her brother’s death.

Luke’s a good father with his own son, though he had to fight to balance guiding the Jedi through the war and keeping his own family safe. He regrets the time he had to spend away from Ben while the boy was in hiding to protect him during the war. Now, Luke is trying to help him open himself more to the Force, as Ben became frightened of it during the war.

Remember, we are looking most specifically at your writing samples. Put your best into it! If you tried our test drive meme, you may link the thread to the style it fits below.


First Person/Action brackets:


Savrou app sample: I am not completely sure if I believe the captains or not yet, but I don’t sense anything dark from them right now either. I do want to do my best to help others while I’m here, if I find ways I can. It’s natural; I’ve always liked helping others. I do think I was brought here for a reason, and I’ll find out what it is and make the most of it. My name is Luke Skywalker, and it’s nice to meet you all.

To my family that I’ve found here, I’m glad that I’m not alone here, and I’m going to make the most of my time with those of you I wouldn’t otherwise have had the chance to get to know.
Jaina, I do wish that we weren’t separated from the rest, but hopefully we’ll get back to them. I know we both miss the rest of the family, but I know we can work together and get back home to them somehow.
Father and Mother, I don’t know how the Force brought us together, but I’m happy to be able to get to know you.

Obi-Wan, I want to make the most of our being together again here. I still look up to you so much, and have always wished I could have spent more time with you. I look forward to talking with you more and maybe even learning a few more things.

Contracts:

I’m not sure if I totally believe the captains or not, but I feel signing on to travel aboard the ship is probably the best option at this point. I have a comm device, but can’t get it working, so I can’t call anyone else to come and pick me up. I don’t have a ship with me that I can travel back home in on my own. I want to get back to my duties to the Galaxy and to helping rebuild in the aftermath of the war, but this could be my only option for right now. I’m not even sure, looking at the stars, if I’m even in the Galaxy anymore. It’s all strange to me. I know enough not to trust blindly, but for right now, I don’t sense any ill intent in the Force.

There is, however, something else I sense on the ship that also makes me want to stay. I can sense two Force presences that shouldn’t be here and has me very intrigued. One is my father. Not the twisted, corrupted presence that was Darth Vader, but the real Anakin, the father I saw so briefly on the Death Star. I’ve got to find out where it’s coming from and how he’s here. If the Force has somehow brought us together here, I want to make the most of it. Does he know me? What will he be like? I have to find out.

And I can sense Obi-Wan. I still look up to him so much…I’ve always regretted that I never got to spend much time with him when he was alive. I can’t help wondering if there’s more he can teach me, even with what I’ve learned already. I have to see both of them and find out what’s going on.

Fortunately, I’m not completely alone. Jaina’s here. And Han, I think. I’m not sure what’s ahead for me, but I have a feeling it’s going to be quite remarkable. I’ll do what I can to help us all get home, and to help the others here whenever there are chances to do so.

Abilities/Skills:

Luke is a skilled pilot who can fly just about anything, and inherited his dad’s innate military-style flying ability. He’s also got some of his father’s mechanical skill. By this time in his canon, he’s developed into a good leader and mentor, despite not really being a natural at it.

He's also a skilled shot with a rifle-type weapon, spending a lot of time when he was young shooting pesky womp rats.

He has an ability to see shatterpoints, a Force-guided sense of where something can break or change the course of events. He can boost his natural speed, strength and stamina with the Force, or give a boost to another Force user, most frequently Mara or Leia. He can also enter a battle meld to fight in perfect mental tandem with them. He can use the classic Jedi Mind Trick to influence others, but does so only rarely, due to not being fond of the method.

By now, this even extends to relatively large ones like a vehicle, although the more he exerts himself while using the Force, the more it takes out of him.

Strengths/Weaknesses:

Strengths: Likes to help people, very friendly usually. Smart, a good leader by now and experienced with some areas of teaching. Resourceful and quick thinking, able to handle tight situations well. Doesn’t give up easily. He sees the good in everyone and doesn't give up on them easily. Has experience with military skills and tactics, and a few other survival skills learned from his youth.

Weaknesses: Stubborn, a little too naïve/trusting sometimes. His father’s temper can manifest if you hurt someone he cares about. Sometimes is hard on himself about his struggles with the Dark Side, regretting mistakes and guilt tripping a little too hard when he makes said mistakes. Extremely stubborn.

Items: Luke usually carries very little on him, but he’ll have his lightsaber and probably a comm device that likely won’t do him much good on the ship.

In addition, here’s my sample for my entry into the Marina Nova game.

He moved around slowly, taking in his surroundings cautiously. He had understood what he'd been told about this being a prison and his physical body being in a sort of stasis. However, he couldn't help wondering who the creators of the artificial intelligence that ran this place were. He felt weak and uneasy with not being able to feel the Force. He wasn't unable to help himself, but always felt at a disadvantage when cut off. He looked for Ysalamir cages, but didn't see any visible ones.

His thoughts were racing, processing what had been explained to him about this place, worrying for his wife and child, and for the fate of the galaxy and the Jedi Order if he couldn't be there to lead it. He felt angry, but kept his calm, controlling his emotions and not letting them lead him to do anything rash.

With the war going on, the Yuzhaan Vong were always top suspects for attacking him, but they weren't overly fond of most technology, aside from their own living ships and the weapons they used. He supposed it could be a Dark Side user, Sith or otherwise, but at the moment, it was hard to tell anything. Luke decided he had to stay alert and try to find whatever ways he could of gathering more information.

He knew there were those who would see him as a criminal. Despite the peace with the Imperial Remnant, there were still those affiliated with it that hated him, and there were always the users of the Dark Side. Luke had never been thrilled with some of the things he'd had to do and the lives he'd had to take, but as a fledgling Jedi, he'd rationalized it as being for the greater good, the freedom of so many. Of course, his actions during the time of the reborn Palpatine were less excusable, but he didn't deny he'd been a fool to think as he had back then. It was easier to think of the current war as more black and white, even if it might not truly be so, because of the atrocities committed by the invaders. Still, Luke believed it would be necessary to convince his captors that he wasn't truly a criminal.

Luke studied the various people and other beings he saw here as he explored his surroundings. He would have to figure out who was friendly and who could be trusted, and try to work together with them if he was to make it back home. In one of the common rooms, he happened upon two faces that made his spirits sink, but also brought joy to his being. Han and Leia.

Luke made his way to them quickly, their presence affirming even more his desire to get back home. Of course, the most important reasons were Mara and Ben, but Han and Leia were his closest family outside of them. He thought of the kids, not knowing their parents had been replaced with imposters, and just hoped everyone would be all right until they could get back to them.

Canon: Star Wars Legends
Canon Point: Post New Jedi Order
Age: 48
Gender: Male
Species: human
Appearance: https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--hb_emZYY--/c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/1493026222774236075.jpg
History/Background: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Luke_Skywalker/Legends
Personality:
Luke is a classic small town boy thrust into a lifetime of adventure and heroism. He grew up wanting to be a hero and have big adventures, despite not knowing of his famous and troubling parentage. His aunt and uncle did their best to raise him as a responsible, upstanding young man, but they, especially Owen, kept his heritage a secret out of fear that he’d follow his father and turn dark.

At this point in his canon, Luke has matured a lot from his beginnings. He retains his sense of idealism and his belief in the inherent good of other beings, and he has a natural desire to help people and do the right thing. Sometimes he can still be a bit too easily influenced, something like his dad. However, he is more confident, capable and wiser, as well as more aware of the reality of the war against the Dark Side. He has been through a lot of dark times along with the good ones, and they’ve tempered and forged him into a powerful warrior. By this point in his life, he is a Jedi Grand Master, his power equal to many of the most powerful Jedi of the New Order.
He does his best to keep his cool and stay calm, but although he made a personal decision not to give in to the temptation of the Dark Side, that is not to say he hasn’t struggled with it, and nearly given into it at one point. He knows he must reign in his emotions and do his best to control them. Unlike Old Order Jedi, he’s often able to harness both sides of the Force without going over to the Dark Side. He’s devoted to the Jedi path, but at the same time, he is not entirely like the Jedi of old. He isn’t afraid to feel, to live, to have emotions and attachments.
Luke is fiercely protective of those he cares about, and will do almost anything to help them. Ben, Mara, Leia and Han are the closest ; he has a twin bond with his sister and a close pair-bond with his wife. He had a lot of encounters with the opposite sex over the years, even seeming to get close to Callista, but it was not until Mara that he found his true soul mate. With her, their initial volleys of snarking and harsh remarks at each other have evolved into playfully teasingly snarking at each other.
Skills/Abilities:
Luke is a skilled pilot who can fly just about anything, and inherited his dad’s innate military-style flying ability. He’s also got some of his father’s mechanical skill. By this time in his canon, he’s developed into a good leader and mentor, despite not really being a natural at it. He’s a naturally good swordsman, although there’s likely some Force skill there as well, as he was able to pick up his father’s form of saber fighting after only one exposure to it and has mastered several other forms over his life.
He has an ability to see shatterpoints, a Force-guided sense of where something can break or change the course of events. He can boost his natural speed, strength and stamina with the Force, or give a boost to another Force user, most frequently Mara or Leia. He can also enter a battle meld to fight in perfect mental tandem with them. At one point, he Force-bonded with Mara, essentially melding their Force presences and minds together in a deep connection. He can use the classic Jedi Mind Trick to influence others, but does so only rarely, due to not being fond of the method. He can also use the Force to disguise himself.
Luke is telepathic to other Force users, and can feel their thoughts and emotions. However, probing another person’s mind is something that’s done only with permission, unless there’s good reason. This is heightened somewhat with those closest to him, like Leia, Mara and the Solo children and he can sense things like their pain even if he isn’t consciously connecting to them. He especially tends to detect or finish Mara’s thoughts at times without realizing it, sometimes earning him a playfully snarky response like “get out of my head, Skywalker”.

If injured, he can place himself in a Jedi healing trance and heal himself to a point, even with injuries that others might not survive. Mara will typically wake him from one with “I love you, Luke”.
He can shield his Force presence and make himself undetectable to others. He can generate copies of objects or vehicles, although it took time to learn to use the technique without burning himself out. He can become so bonded with the Force that he is essentially one with it, vastly increasing his strength and power with his lightsaber in battle, and that he may not even seem to be there, physic ally or even personality-wise. He can use a type of Force-lightning called Electric Judgement. He can easily destroy even large objects or teleport them great distances. He can create illusions that are visible even at great distances.
Magic Weapon: Randomize
Carrier: Registered user “Farmboy”. “X-Wing”, a four-winged birdlike creature called Microraptor. (http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/mesozoicera/images/e/e1/Microraptor_colour.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/1000?cb=20150831170115) It’s about 2 ½ feet long including the long tail and has a 3-foot wingspan. Dark black feathers cover its scaly body an it has a toothed mouth. It’s not able to truly fly for long distances but can flutter between perches or a perch and the ground. For longer distances it glides like a flying lizard. Has an annoying habit of trying to perch on Luke’s head. The two front wings each have a rebel emblem on the shoulders. Isn’t terribly adept at keeping track of that long tail and things will get knocked over if you aren’t careful. Luke is also having trouble teaching it why play-biting isn’t always a great idea.

Sample:
Luke was still trying to get the hang of this place as he tried to gauge how best to fight this thing. There were many who called the abilities of Jedi magic, but Luke didn’t think it was quite like what was in play here. He did wonder if it was anything like the powers of the Dathomir witches, although they too got most of their ability from the Force.
This weapon wasn’t his lightsaber, but it was still usable. What he didn’t like was not having his Force connection for now. Just like when he’d had to deal with the forest full of ysalamiri, it was like being blind and deaf in a manner of speaking. Although he’d grown up with no knowledge of his innate abilities, he’d come to realize later how the connection had always been there, and how being cut off felt different.
He dodged, then answered with a thrust of his weapon as the creature lunged at him. At least he was in excellent physical shape due to the daily routines he put himself through. He felt a little like a padawan might, getting used to using this thing, but he thought that he would eventually master its use. Every now and then, he glanced briefly at the others who were fighting with him, occasionally calling out some kind of instruction. He wasn’t quite as adept as he was leading a team of his Jedi students, but the skills still allowed him to do a decent job.
One of the other battlers managed to stun the thing, and Luke lunged forward, plunging his sword into the creature the same way he would his lightsaber, hoping it would be enough to put the thing out of commission.

Character Basics


Name: (The Character's Name) Luke Skywalker
Canon: (Canon Name and Type) Star Wars Legends (movies and books and comics)
Exit: (The exit point you described in your application.) End of the Dark Nest trilogy
Stuck?: (Are they currently stuck in the hotel?) I think possibly right now since he's just arriving.

Gameplay


Time Zone: (Your time zone, if you choose to share it.) US Central
Availability: Most mornings and evenings. Monday and Wed afternoons are better and all day Friday. Sunday varies.
Slowtagging: (Your policy on slowtagging.) feel free; sometimes I get a little slow too, although i'll try to tell you if I'm going to be too overly slow.
Open to: (The types of activity you're interested in. This can be super specific to this character, or can just use the shorthand found in the game status post — AUs, backstory, PSLs, etc.) I'm generally open to friendships, mentor kind of things if anyone potentially Force-sensitive shows up, a lot of different kinds of adventures really. But if it involves something like tapping the Dark Side, I might be a bit more cautious; it wouldn't be terribly easy at this canon point to sway him too far, I don't think.
Canon-puncturing: (How you feel about other characters telling this character they're fictional.) I'm not too picky, it wouldn't be the first game it happened.
Offensive subjects: (Whether or not you're open to offensive subjects in gameplay.) Sure, if it gets too bad, shoot me a message, but I won't mind in a lot of cases. He might get into a few of his own if he's talking with someone he knows well and things about his past come up. (he's been tortured a couple times, seen and been involved in more violence than he'd like to have been...)
Powers: Luke won't mind telepathy, although it might surprise and intrigue him if the other person isn't from his world. He won't use his own mind reading ability on anyone without permission, it's general Jedi manners. If someone like Ben or Mara shows up, they often talk telepathically as a part of their canon.

Interaction


General warnings: Nothing much. Luke won't read anyone's mind without prior permission; he can pick up general things like fear or anger or pain, but as a Jedi, he generally respects mental privacy.

Romantic interaction: Pretty much nothing, unless someone apps Mara. Luke's firmly committed.

Violence: I don't mind hurting him. He can just heal himself if it isn't too bad. But make sure we discuss any fight ideas beforehand. Luke could easily kill someone with his abilities, but he isn't that kind of person. Unless maybe a family member shows up and he wants to protect them. But even then, he tries to stick to his Jedi ways.

Godmodding


For anyone: I don't mind people saying they saw him or mentioning a few things if we had a past thread or the threads are related, stuff like that.

Special permissions: There really isn't anyone who'd work to do it at the moment. Will change if that does.

Canon Point: End of Dark Nest Trilogy
Physical description: Luke stands about 5ft 8in, making him just a little on the short side. He has blond hair that darkened a bit later in his life and is starting to gray by this point, and piercing blue eyes. He has an average build and a slim look but is in excellent physical shape and good muscle tone. Even though he is middle aged by this point in his canon, he still looks somewhat younger, probably due to his universe’s enhanced medical tech and natural healing abilities.

Luke has scarring on his face from an attack by a wild animal called a wampa, but it isn’t quite as noticeable now unless you know where to look. It did, however, slightly alter his appearance from his younger days. He has a prosthetic right hand which is, due to the enhanced technology, capable of feeling sensations. It’s covered in synthetic flesh that blends in with the rest of him although he will sometimes wear a glove over it. He probably has a few other assorted scars; many of his wounds have been healed either by bacta treatments or Jedi healing trances, but sometimes scarring is still permanent.

Luke usually prefers dark clothes, either black or brown trousers and long-sleeved shirt or a black robe with a sort of vest over the top and his outer Jedi robes over that. He’s often seen wearing a black or brown Jedi robe over top of either outfit. Usually, he opts for comfortable, functional clothes that won’t get in the way of the battling he’s frequently engaged in. He usually wears dark colored boots


Canon Information
AU description:
He’s from the Star Wars Legends continuity. It’s essentially all the stuff Disney rendered an alternate canon before the Force Awakens film came out. Both canons have the same basic structure and early backstory, but what Disney now has is more bare-bones than the established Expanded Universe aka Legends continuity. The big difference is that while Disney decided to have Kylo Ren destroy the infant New Jedi Order, the Legends continuity follows the Order’s rebuilding and the struggles through the many wars and conflicts of the galaxy. Luke is married in this continuity by this canon point, with a 10-yr old son, and Leia and Han have three kids, the older twins and the younger Anakin who ultimately died in battle.


History:
Luke was born in about 19 years before the Battle of Yavin on the space colony of Polis Massa. His father was Anakin Skywalker, a powerful Jedi Knight during the Clone Wars who fell to the Dark Side. Anakin became the Sith Lord Darth Vader and, losing control of his anger, he fatally injured Luke’s mother. Luke and his twin sister were separated to protect them from possible discovery by Vader. Leia was sent to Alderaan to be raised by its queen and crown prince, while Luke was taken to his aunt and uncle on Tattooine.

Luke was never told of his heritage, due to Uncle Owen believing he’d follow his father and fall to the Dark Side. He was a natural dreamer and always wanted to leave home and be a hero, but Owen kept trying to get him to stay and work the moisture farm. As a boy, he was lost and injured at one point, and was brought home by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was watching over him as he grew up.

Luke took to racing speeders and taking risks, and picked up the nickname ‘Wormy’ from his friends. He discovered the truth about his heritage when Owen bought two droids to work the farm.They had been sent, unbeknownst to the family, by Leia, who was being held captive on the Death Star. R2-D2 had a message for Obi-Wan and Luke discovered it. When he took the droid to ‘Old Ben’, Obi-Wan gave him his father’s lightsaber and told him about the Jedi and the Force.

Luke returned home to find his family’s farm destroyed, his aunt and uncle killed by the Imperials. He left with Obi-Wan and they stopped in Mos Eisley to hire pilot Han Solo to take them to Alderaan. Sadly, when they arrived, Alderaan was already destroyed. The Death Star’s tractor beam captured the ship and pulled them aboard. Luke convinced Han to disguise himself as a Stormtrooper and the two rescued Leia from her cell, and then escaped through a garbage chute to get back to the Falcon.

The group went to the nearby rebel base on Yavin IV. From there, Luke flew with a squadron of fighter pilots in what became known as the Battle of Yavin. He used his newly found Force ability to guide a torpedo into the Death Star’s exhaust port and the station was destroyed. Luke, along with Han, received a medal for the battle and he was named a Hero of the Rebellion.

After the battlte, the rebels continued to fly missions while searching for a new base location. Luke was hunted by a bounty hunter named X-7 as the imperials tried to learn Luke’s identity. He got in trouble for disobeying Leia’s orders, but again disobeyed her grounding of him when Obi-Wan’s spirit told him she was in danger. He battled and was nearly killed by a Force-sensitive Tusken seeking revenge for Anakin’s slaughter of Tuskens after his mother’s death. He encountered and fought an ancient Jedi captured and corrupted by a Sith spirit trapped inside a talisman called the Muur Talisman and ultimately had to save Leia from being pulled in by it. Luke helped to locate the Kaliburr crystal and, empowered by it and the spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi, even managed to hold off Vader in their first duel. He also helped to form and begin training his Rogue One squadron.


The rebel base was relocated to Hoth, and sometime after, Luke was attacked by a wampa while out scouting. The creature dragged him to its cave and hung him from the ceiling. Luke escaped by calling his lightsaber to him and attacking the creature with it. However, he only made it a short distance into the snow before collapsing. Luke saw the spirit of Obi-Wan again, telling him to go train with Master Yoda in the Dagobah system. He was found soon after by Han, who saved Luke by using the lightsaber to slice open his tauntaun, which had died from the cold, and putting Luke inside the carcass. Luke spent time in a bacta tank healing after he and Han were found and returned to base.

The base was discovered, and the rebels evacuated. Han, Leia and Chewbacca fled to Cloud City at Bespin, while Luke headed for Dagobah. Luke was initially told by Yoda that he was too old to train, but the aged Master still did begin training him. Luke had difficulty with a lot of things at first, like not being able to lift his sunken X-Wing out of the swamp because it was too big. Yoda sent him into a cave which was said to show a person’s greatest fears. Luke brought along his weapons despite Yoda saying he wouldn’t need them. He battled an apparition of Vader, and cut off its head, only to find his own face behind the severed head’s helmet. He realized it symbolized him not being able to control his anger and acting rashly and falling to the Dark Side.

Luke felt the danger his friends were in when they were captured at Bespin. Vader set a trap for Luke, knowing that his torture of Han and Leia’s distress at the situation would go through the Force to Luke and draw him in. Luke left for Bespin, despite Yoda telling him that he was not ready and that his friends would only suffer more. By the time he landed, Han had been frozen in carbonite and Lando Calrissian was helping Leia to escape. Luke battled Vader, but his new skills were no match for the Dark Lord. Vader severed Luke’s right hand and as Luke clung to metal scaffolding, battered and unarmed, Vader revealed that he was actually Luke’s father. Vader bade Luke to join him so they could destroy the Emperor and rule the galaxy together, but Luke chose to potentially die instead. He was sucked into a shaft and left hanging from the underside of the structure. Leia heard his cries for help through her own newly developing Force powers and guided Lando and the Falcon to rescue him.

Luke, Leia and Chewie spent the next sixth months alternating between missions for the rebellion and searching for Han, who had been taken to Jabba the Hutt by bounty hunter Boba Fett. He had to escape capture at one point with help from the very man who’d captured him, and who had then been captured himself.

Luke was infected with a disease driven by a blood-read stone that left him comatose. He had been targeted in a revenge plot, and Leia and Chewie raced against time to find and retrieve another stone that could save Luke. He recovered after the stones were reunited.

A number of other missions were flown, and during this time, Luke fell in love with a female squadron mate. He then found himself strangely compelled to shoot her down. He was at risk of court-martial, but it was discovered that she was actually an imperial agent. His confidence in the Force had been shaken, but slowly recovered.

Luke continued to train, building himself a new lightsaber. He flew several more missions, coming close to getting Han along with Leia and Lando, but Fett escaped at the last minute. Luke was nearly captured again while trying to rescue Leia from Prince Xizor, who had seduced her with his pheromones. She responded by kneeing him in the groin, but was locked up, leaving it to Luke to rescue her. Finally, it was learned that Han had been delivered to Jabba, and a rescue was prepared.

Leia arrived first, posing as a bounty hunter with Chewie as her prisoner. She freed Han, but was captured and enslaved by Jabba. Luke arrived shortly after, and tried to use a mind trick to free his friends, only to find that mind tricks don’t work on Hutts. He was dropped into the rancor pit, but killed the beast by stopping its mouth with a bone, then bringing its heavy cage door down on top of it.

Jabba ordered the group fed to the sarlaac, except for Leia, who was to remain his slave. Luke warned Jabba to let them go, but the Hutt simply laughed it off. Luke used his newly learned Jedi skills as he was pushed off the barge, landing back atop it and catching his lightsaber, launched from a hidden compartment on R2. He fought back furiously against Jabba’s guards and Boba Fetta, while Leia took advantage of the chaos to strangle the giant Hutt and Han, still half blind, tried to keep Lando, who had infiltrated the palace as a guard, from falling into the Sarlaac. The group fled after blowing up the barge. Luke only discovered later that his future wife, an imperial assassin at the time, was also undercover, and would have killed him had Jabba not brushed her off and refused to let her on the barge.


Luke returned to Dagobah and visited Yoda, who was now dying. Yoda told Luke that he had to face Vader. Initially, the young Jedi was reluctant, not wanting to kill his own father. Obi-Wan also appeared, revealing to Luke that Leia was actually his sister. After Yoda became one with the Force, Luke left and headed to Sullust, where the rebel fleet was hiding. They proceeded to Endor, to take down the second, much larger Death Star that had been built there. A stolen code allowed the shuttle to land on the Forest Moon of Endor, although Vader sensed them coming.

The group was separated, with Leia chasing after Stormtroopers on speeders and getting befriended by an Ewok named Wicket. Han, Luke and Chewie were captured by other Ewoks, and taken to the village. The meat-eating Ewoks planned to eat them as a sacrifice to c-3po, who they believed was a god. Luke’s use of levitation to lift Leia’s chair convinced the tribe that Threepio would use evil magic on them if they did not release the group. The protocol droid then convinced the Ewoks to join in the attack on the Death Star’s shield generator.

Luke talked with Leia, telling her of their relationship and that he had to face his father, something she was frightened about. He surrendered to the imperials while the rebel force attacked the generator. Luke again battled Vader, this time as the Dark Lord’s equal in lightsaber combat. Even the Emperor was impressed by how quickly Luke picked up the skills. Luke tried to turn Vader back to the light, but was unable, and the two Sith lords were unhappy with Luke’s emotional control. Vader chased him, bringing down metal infrastructure with his own saber and Luke hid, not wanting to give into his anger. Vader picked up on his thoughts of Leia, and the idea of Vader turning her to evil enraged Luke. He fought back furiously.

Luke cut off Vader’s mechanical hand, but then reigned in his anger, declaring himself a Jedi and refusing to kill the defeated Vader. Palpatine became angry that he couldn’t turn Luke and decided to kill him instead. Tortured by the Emperor’s Force lightning, Luke begged his father to help, and the remaining goodness inside of Anakin was finally touched. No longer Vader, Anakin threw Palpatine into the reactor shaft, killing him (for the moment) but fatally damaging his life support suit.

Luke tried to save his father, but was unable to do anything for him in time. Anakin asked for his helmet to be removed so that he could see his son with his own eyes before his death. Luke escaped with Anakin’s body as the second Death Star was destroyed. Redeemed, Anakin became one with the Force, and Luke saw him with Obi-Wan and Yoda as he burned Vader’s armor on the moon of Endor.

Luke led a fight on Bakura shortly after, fighting the invading Sii-Ruuk, a race that used the energy of their victims to power their technology. After the planet was freed, Luke was inspired to begin searching for more Force users to rebuild the order. He led one final, unexpected battle during a trip to Corellia, and then turned the leadership of Rogue Squadron over to Wedge Antillies.

Luke found himself caught up in a lot of the post-Imperial chaos. Systems were fighting to break free of the Imperial remnants and the Rebellion was trying to build a new government. Again, Luke fell in love, but the girl, Mary, was killed shortly after. Luke became nervous about training new Jedi and the danger of the Dark Side, but his attempt to avoid causing evil ended up creating it when he refused to train a young man who fell under the influence of the Sith. Flint was redeemed in the ensuring battle, but another young rebel lost her life. Luke met with the spirits of Obi-Wan and Anakin and Yoda and agreed to begin training new Jedi.

Luke fought in the Negai-Tof war, during which he was captured by Lumiya, the Dark Lady of the Sith. He manged to escape, and realized that she was actually his former love, Shira. She escaped him for the time being.

Luke fought to stop Trioculus, who claimed to be a son of Palpatine but was really an imposter, from retrieving one of Vader’s gloves from the ocean of Dak. The mutant escaped with the glove, and Luke learned that he was a puppet for a group of Imperial Grand Moffs. A boy who claimed to have been a Jedi prince helped Luke but was captured by an imposter pretending to be a Sith Supreme Prophet. After the boy and his father, Palpatine’s true son, were helped to escape, the false prophet was stopped by a Grand Admiral.

Luke’s final mission with the Republic Army was battling Lord Shadowspawn, aka Cronal. Luke let himself be captured during the fight, and worked to free the minds controlled by Cronal. He resigned as a general afterward and made a home base on Coruscant.

Luke traveled the galaxy searching for other Force-sensitives, while continuing his own training and his search for information on the Order. Much of what he found was forged, however. He invited Corran Horn to train as a Jedi after rescuing him.

Luke went to Dathomir when Han abducted Leia and took her there during his competition with Prince Isolder for her affections. Luke encountered the Nightsisters and battled a group of Dark Side users. Shortly after, Luke was able to learn more about his father’s childhood and had one more meeting with Obi Wan, who would visit him only one more time later on.

Luke fought in the Thrawn Crisis, and encountered his future wife for the first time. Thrawn was a Grand Admiral who was trying to rebuild the Empire. During the battles, Luke was rescued by smuggler Talon Karrde, and met his associate, Mara Jade. Mara was angry at Luke at the time, because he had killed the Emperor and ended her privileged life as an imperial assassin. Palpatine had implanted a command in her mind before his death, driving her to kill Luke. The compulsion was ultimately purged when Luke battled a dark clone of himself, called Luuke Skywalker. It was Mara who ultimately killed Luuke and fulfilled the emperor’s command, finally purging it from her mind.

The two ended up working together out of necessity for a time, rescuing Karrde and trying to end the threat of Thrawn. Their relationship softened a bit and Luke set her up as an intermediary between the Republic and the smuggling community. He gave her Anakin’s lightsaber to replace her lost one.

Luke briefly joined the Dark Side to understand it better and to try to defeat it from within. He was challenged many times by Palpatine, who had placed himself into a clone body. Luke nearly lost himself in the Dark Side due to Palpatine’s desire to break him down, but managed with the help of Leia to overcome the darkness and battle Palpatine. Luke then had to battle the last of Palpatine’s cloned bodies as the Emperor sought to possess Leia’ s unborn child, Anakin, though Han ultimately killed Palpatine.

About this time, Luke, now a Jedi Master, finally established his Jedi Academy and began training more new Jedi. He still faced threats, though, from dark Jedi. One captured him on Mustafar in an attempt to create a group of dark Luke clones, but Luke managed to escape with help from the dark Jedi’s brother. There was also Exar Kun, who influenced and possessed one of Luke’s students. Luke was alble to free the man and he became an accomplished Jedi himself.

Luke dealt with feuding Gammorean tribes and got injured, waking up on a battlemoon called the Eye of Palpatine. He discovered a woman whose body had died, but her spirit had survived. During the battles with the warring tribes and a strange computer intelligence called the Will, a woman who had been on the ship died, and Callista took over her body.

Callista became distressed because she couldn’t touch the Force. During a trip to Hoth, they had to battle a herd of wampas and only narrowly escaped with their lives. Shortly after, he believed Callista had died, but she then sent a message saying that she was leaving to try and find her path in life and to discover more about her problem with the Force. Luke accepted it, though he was saddened.

Later, Luke heard of Callista’s location and decided to try and find her, only to end up shipwrecked and fighting a hostile tribe. He continued to search for Callista, but found himself also searching for Leia, who had been taken captive. She escaped, though, and Luke kept up his search for Callista. He found out shortly after that she had been coordinating for the other side of the battle, and had to accept that they weren’t going to be together.

Next was the Empire Reborn movement, led by a fallen Jedi and involving some of Luke’s fallen students. His own students helped him to fight the group, but although several groups associated with the movement were defeated, it was difficult to kill it for good. He had to wage a battle against a being called Hethrir, and another called Waru, who tricked Luke into a trance and pulled him into it, with Han and Leia. Waru ultimately dragged Hethrir in with him and the trio was able to escape. Hethrir finally went back to his own world.

Luke found himself unable to feel the Force as strongly and went on a mission to figure out why. While he was on retreat, he was tricked by a Fallanassi who claimed she had information on Luke’s mother. He tried to find out more about the Fallanassi group, ended up in another battle, and eventually discovered that what he had been told was not true.

In the Aldermanian rebellion, the senate building on Coruscant was attacked. Luke went searching for the attacker. The bomber was desperate for power and threatened to detonate more bombs across the galaxy. Mara Jade arrived with Force-blocking ysalamari and Leia shot the guy before he could do more damage.

Luke helped put down the first Correllian insurrection. Shortly after, he and Mara went to retrieve an important document from a fortress called the Hand of Thrawn. Luke Force-bonded with Mara at the time, and as the fortress flooded, he asked her to marry him if they made it out alive.

Luke and Mara’s wedding was a larger affair than they wanted, partly due to Threepio getting involved. Luke got caught up in a bar fight at his bachelor party, and a group of Imperial loyalists planned to disrupt the wedding and kill the couple, but they were thwarted.

Luke continued to train his students, including his nephew Anakin. They spent time on Tattooine and faced Tusken raiders and then had a mission to Borgo Prime, where they found Obi-Wan’s lightsaber and another Jedi relic.

After a fight with one of Karrde’s smuggling associates, Luke and Mara investigated the Outbound Flight ship, getting captured at one point along the way and fighting the Vagaari warriors while aboard the ship.
Luke returned to the Jedi academy to continue his training of new Jedi. He oversaw operations while taking new missions and leaving a lot of the instruction to other Jedi. He and Tenel Ka infiltrated a academy for Dark Jedi, where Jaina, Jacen and Lowbacca had been held captive. He ultimately had to prepare his own students for a battle with the Shadow Academy followers, which they won.

The next battle was against the Diversity Alliance, a group threatening terrorism against humans. There was also a resurgence of the Black Sun group that Luke and his students took part in fighting.

The galaxy was invaded by the Yuzhaan Vong, a race of dogmatic alien invaders and Luke would spend the next few years helping in the conflict while trying to reorganize the Jedi Council. Mara Jade also became ill during this time, due to coomb spores that had been released during a battle with the Vong. Most sufferers died quickly, and it was only Mara’s Jedi abilities that let her survive longer. She found a temporary cure, but when she became pregnant, she was told by healer Cilghal that the cure would harm her unborn child. Luke had to help her purge the disease from her body after it resurged and nearly killed her. She was able to safely deliver Luke’s son, Ben.

Luke dealt with strife and rival factions within the Jedi Order, although eventually the Order had to unify to fight another battle that threatened them all.

Although the threat of the Vong had been driven back, a race called the Killiks also threatened the galaxy, starting the Swarm War. During this time, Luke discovered holograms about his parents’ history that were still held by R2-D2. The little droid tried to stop Luke from seeing them, but he managed to coax the droid into complying and showing them. Luke declared himself the Grand Master of the Jedi around this time.

Personality:
Luke is a classic small town boy thrust into a lifetime of adventure and heroism. He grew up wanting to be a hero and have big adventures, despite not knowing of his famous and troubling parentage. His aunt and uncle did their best to raise him as a responsible, upstanding young man, but they, especially Owen, kept his heritage a secret out of fear that he’d follow his father and turn dark.

At this point in his canon, Luke has matured a lot from his beginnings. He retains his sense of idealism and his belief in the inherent good of other beings, and he has a natural desire to help people and do the right thing. Sometimes he can still be a bit too easily influenced, something like his dad. However, he is more confident, capable and wiser, as well as more aware of the reality of the war against the Dark Side. He has been through a lot of dark times along with the good ones, and they’ve tempered and forged him into a powerful warrior. By this point in his life, he is a Jedi Grand Master, his power equal to many of the most powerful Jedi of the New Order.

He does his best to keep his cool and stay calm, but although he made a personal decision not to give in to the temptation of the Dark Side, that is not to say he hasn’t struggled with it, and nearly given into it at one point. He knows he must reign in his emotions and do his best to control them. Unlike Old Order Jedi, he’s often able to harness both sides of the Force without going over to the Dark Side. He’s devoted to the Jedi path, but at the same time, he is not entirely like the Jedi of old. He isn’t afraid to feel, to live, to have emotions and attachments.

Luke is fiercely protective of those he cares about, and will do almost anything to help them. Leia and Mara are the two closest ; he has a twin bond with his sister and a close pair-bond with his wife. He had a lot of encounters with the opposite sex over the years, even seeming to get close to Callista, but it was not until Mara that he found his true soul mate. With her, their initial volleys of snarking and harsh remarks at each other have evolved into playfully teasingly snarking at each other.

Family life has been difficult for him at times, with the constant struggle of the Yuzhaan Vong war forcing him to hid Ben away for safety most of the time. He’s also had to deal with the struggles Ben had during that war and the Swarm War that caused him to withdraw from the Force for a time. A bit of a rift threatened to develop between father and son, but they’ve managed to pull through for the most part. He also struggled with separation from Mara especially early on, when she was still cleaning up her last few jobs with Karrde and he was focusing on the Order. He feels a lot of responsibility and burden between his family, the Order, and protecting the rest of the galaxy.

Strengths
Luke is a skilled Force user and fighter. He’s flexible and adaptable, able to use his mind and his skills to get out of a lot of tight situations. He was never a natural leader, but his time rebuilding the Jedi has given him insight into that area. He’s become rather good at being a mentor and instructor over the years. He’s stubborn and strong-willed, not willing to give up easy, although this can be either good or bad depending on the situation. He’s also gained a lot of military skills over the years, even though he wasn’t always happy being caught up in the wars he’s had to fight through. He isn’t afraid to take risks when he has to in order to do what he feels is right

Weaknesses
Luke can be a little too trusting sometimes. He is older and wiser now, but still has to watch who he lets influence him sometimes. He likes to see the good in other beings, and could have a hard time with the idea of someone being beyond redemption. His stubbornness can easily turn against him. He’s a man with a lot on his shoulders, and the weight of running the order, dealing with the war, and protecting his family has gotten to him at times. Luke is adamant about not turning to the Dark Side, but has to control his anger. Although he straddles a balance more than his father, he still knows the darkness is within him and that he has to ensure he doesn’t give into it. Although Luke inherited enough of his mother’s forethought and clear headedness to keep him from taking the huge risks his dad did, he still can get a bit reckless from time to time.

Other Information
Special Abilities:
Luke is a skilled pilot who can fly just about anything, and inherited his dad’s innate military-style flying ability. He’s also got some of his father’s mechanical skill. By this time in his canon, he’s developed into a good leader and mentor, despite not really being a natural at it. He’s a naturally good swordsman, although there’s likely some Force skill there as well, as he was able to pick up his father’s form of saber fighting after only one exposure to it and has mastered several other forms over his life.

He has an ability to see shatterpoints, a Force-guided sense of where something can break or change the course of events. He can boost his natural speed, strength and stamina with the Force, or give a boost to another Force user, most frequently Mara or Leia. He can also enter a battle meld to fight in perfect mental tandem with them. At one point, he Force-bonded with Mara, essentially melding their Force presences and minds together in a deep connection. He can use the classic Jedi Mind Trick to influence others, but does so only rarely, due to not being fond of the method. He can also use the Force to disguise himself.

Luke is telepathic to other Force users, and can feel their thoughts and emotions. However, probing another person’s mind is something that’s done only with permission, unless there’s good reason. This is heightened somewhat with those closest to him, like Leia, Mara and the Solo children and he can sense things like their pain even if he isn’t consciously connecting to them. He especially tends to detect or finish Mara’s thoughts at times without realizing it, sometimes earning him a playfully snarky response like “get out of my head, Skywalker”.

If injured, he can place himself in a Jedi healing trance and heal himself to a point, even with injuries that others might not survive. Mara will typically wake him from one with “I love you, Luke”.

He can shield his Force presence and make himself undetectable to others. He can generate copies of objects or vehicles, although it took time to learn to use the technique without burning himself out. He can become so bonded with the Force that he is essentially one with it, vastly increasing his strength and power with his lightsaber in battle, and that he may not even seem to be there, physic ally or even personality-wise. He can use a type of Force-lightning called Electric Judgement. He can easily destroy even large objects or teleport them great distances. He can create illusions that are visible even at great distances.

Notable/Unique Needs: (Does your character require anything beyond the basics of food and shelter to survive - if so, list them in detail here. Are there any items they need for health functions - glasses, canes, etc.)

Anything else? (Is there anything else not covered by the above that you want to tell us about your character?)


Writing Samples
First Person: (my Univille app sample)

It's still had to believe that Mara is here and alive. I know I felt her die, I felt the link being severed. It felt as though my world had fallen apart. But when I found myself in here, I felt the link return to life, as though nothing had happened. I am still trying to understand what this place is, exactly, and how I was brought here. Mara has tried to explain to me as much as she can, but I expect that it will take some time before I'm fully comfortable. It does appear that there is no escape, although any of us can be pulled back into our world at any time. I find myself struggling with that. I know that if one or both of us is pulled back into our world, Mara will certainly die, just as I felt before I left. As long as we are here, she is alive, and we are together. Part of me wishes that we could be assured of staying here, but I know that it would not be the will of the Force. I cannot abandon the Galaxy and the Jedi order if a way can be found to return home. I do not know if we will remember any of this, no one is certain. I will make the most of what time we've been given, but when the Force wills that we have to return home, I will accept it and do what must be done.

Canon Point: Legacy of the Force ‘Sacrifice’

Appearance: Luke stands about 5ft 8in, making him just a little on the short side. He has blond hair that darkened a bit later in his life and is starting to gray by this point, and piercing blue eyes. He has an average build and a slim look but is in excellent physical shape and good muscle tone. Even though he is middle aged by this point in his canon, he still looks somewhat younger, probably due to his universe’s enhanced medical tech and natural healing abilities.

Luke has scarring on his face from an attack by a wild animal called a wampa, but it isn’t quite as noticeable now unless you know where to look. It did, however, slightly alter his appearance from his younger days. He has a prosthetic right hand which is, due to the enhanced technology, capable of feeling sensations. It’s covered in synthetic flesh that blends in with the rest of him although he will sometimes wear a glove over it. He probably has a few other assorted scars; many of his wounds have been healed either by bacta treatments or Jedi healing trances, but sometimes scarring is still permanent.

Luke usually prefers dark clothes, either black or brown trousers and long-sleeved shirt or a black robe with a sort of vest over the top and his outer Jedi robes over that. He’s often seen wearing a black or brown Jedi robe over top of either outfit. Usually, he opts for comfortable, functional clothes that won’t get in the way of the battling he’s frequently engaged in. He usually wears dark colored boots.

History: (250 words minimum; do not just link to a wiki page)
Luke was born in about 19 years before the Battle of Yavin on the space colony of Polis Massa. His father was Anakin Skywalker, a powerful Jedi Knight during the Clone Wars who fell to the Dark Side. Anakin became the Sith Lord Darth Vader and, losing control of his anger, he fatally injured Luke’s mother. Luke and his twin sister were separated to protect them from possible discovery by Vader. Leia was sent to Alderaan to be raised by its queen and crown prince, while Luke was taken to his aunt and uncle on Tattooine.

Luke was never told of his heritage, due to Uncle Owen believing he’d follow his father and fall to the Dark Side. He was a natural dreamer and always wanted to leave home and be a hero, but Owen kept trying to get him to stay and work the moisture farm. As a boy, he was lost and injured at one point, and was brought home by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was watching over him as he grew up.

Luke took to racing speeders and taking risks, and picked up the nickname ‘Wormy’ from his friends. He discovered the truth about his heritage when Owen bought two droids to work the farm.They had been sent, unbeknownst to the family, by Leia, who was being held captive on the Death Star. R2-D2 had a message for Obi-Wan and Luke discovered it. When he took the droid to ‘Old Ben’, Obi-Wan gave him his father’s lightsaber and told him about the Jedi and the Force.

Luke returned home to find his family’s farm destroyed, his aunt and uncle killed by the Imperials. He left with Obi-Wan and they stopped in Mos Eisley to hire pilot Han Solo to take them to Alderaan. Sadly, when they arrived, Alderaan was already destroyed. The Death Star’s tractor beam captured the ship and pulled them aboard. Luke convinced Han to disguise himself as a Stormtrooper and the two rescued Leia from her cell, and then escaped through a garbage chute to get back to the Falcon.

The group went to the nearby rebel base on Yavin IV. From there, Luke flew with a squadron of fighter pilots in what became known as the Battle of Yavin. He used his newly found Force ability to guide a torpedo into the Death Star’s exhaust port and the station was destroyed. Luke, along with Han, received a medal for the battle and he was named a Hero of the Rebellion.

After the battlte, the rebels continued to fly missions while searching for a new base location. Luke was hunted by a bounty hunter named X-7 as the imperials tried to learn Luke’s identity. He got in trouble for disobeying Leia’s orders, but again disobeyed her grounding of him when Obi-Wan’s spirit told him she was in danger. He battled and was nearly killed by a Force-sensitive Tusken seeking revenge for Anakin’s slaughter of Tuskens after his mother’s death. He encountered and fought an ancient Jedi captured and corrupted by a Sith spirit trapped inside a talisman called the Muur Talisman and ultimately had to save Leia from being pulled in by it. Luke helped to locate the Kaliburr crystal and, empowered by it and the spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi, even managed to hold off Vader in their first duel. He also helped to form and begin training his Rogue One squadron.


The rebel base was relocated to Hoth, and sometime after, Luke was attacked by a wampa while out scouting. The creature dragged him to its cave and hung him from the ceiling. Luke escaped by calling his lightsaber to him and attacking the creature with it. However, he only made it a short distance into the snow before collapsing. Luke saw the spirit of Obi-Wan again, telling him to go train with Master Yoda in the Dagobah system. He was found soon after by Han, who saved Luke by using the lightsaber to slice open his tauntaun, which had died from the cold, and putting Luke inside the carcass. Luke spent time in a bacta tank healing after he and Han were found and returned to base.

The base was discovered, and the rebels evacuated. Han, Leia and Chewbacca fled to Cloud City at Bespin, while Luke headed for Dagobah. Luke was initially told by Yoda that he was too old to train, but the aged Master still did begin training him. Luke had difficulty with a lot of things at first, like not being able to lift his sunken X-Wing out of the swamp because it was too big. Yoda sent him into a cave which was said to show a person’s greatest fears. Luke brought along his weapons despite Yoda saying he wouldn’t need them. He battled an apparition of Vader, and cut off its head, only to find his own face behind the severed head’s helmet. He realized it symbolized him not being able to control his anger and acting rashly and falling to the Dark Side.

Luke felt the danger his friends were in when they were captured at Bespin. Vader set a trap for Luke, knowing that his torture of Han and Leia’s distress at the situation would go through the Force to Luke and draw him in. Luke left for Bespin, despite Yoda telling him that he was not ready and that his friends would only suffer more. By the time he landed, Han had been frozen in carbonite and Lando Calrissian was helping Leia to escape. Luke battled Vader, but his new skills were no match for the Dark Lord. Vader severed Luke’s right hand and as Luke clung to metal scaffolding, battered and unarmed, Vader revealed that he was actually Luke’s father. Vader bade Luke to join him so they could destroy the Emperor and rule the galaxy together, but Luke chose to potentially die instead. He was sucked into a shaft and left hanging from the underside of the structure. Leia heard his cries for help through her own newly developing Force powers and guided Lando and the Falcon to rescue him.

Luke, Leia and Chewie spent the next sixth months alternating between missions for the rebellion and searching for Han, who had been taken to Jabba the Hutt by bounty hunter Boba Fett. He had to escape capture at one point with help from the very man who’d captured him, and who had then been captured himself.

Luke was infected with a disease driven by a blood-read stone that left him comatose. He had been targeted in a revenge plot, and Leia and Chewie raced against time to find and retrieve another stone that could save Luke. He recovered after the stones were reunited.

A number of other missions were flown, and during this time, Luke fell in love with a female squadron mate. He then found himself strangely compelled to shoot her down. He was at risk of court-martial, but it was discovered that she was actually an imperial agent. His confidence in the Force had been shaken, but slowly recovered.

Luke continued to train, building himself a new lightsaber. He flew several more missions, coming close to getting Han along with Leia and Lando, but Fett escaped at the last minute. Luke was nearly captured again while trying to rescue Leia from Prince Xizor, who had seduced her with his pheromones. She responded by kneeing him in the groin, but was locked up, leaving it to Luke to rescue her. Finally, it was learned that Han had been delivered to Jabba, and a rescue was prepared.

Leia arrived first, posing as a bounty hunter with Chewie as her prisoner. She freed Han, but was captured and enslaved by Jabba. Luke arrived shortly after, and tried to use a mind trick to free his friends, only to find that mind tricks don’t work on Hutts. He was dropped into the rancor pit, but killed the beast by stopping its mouth with a bone, then bringing its heavy cage door down on top of it.

Jabba ordered the group fed to the sarlaac, except for Leia, who was to remain his slave. Luke warned Jabba to let them go, but the Hutt simply laughed it off. Luke used his newly learned Jedi skills as he was pushed off the barge, landing back atop it and catching his lightsaber, launched from a hidden compartment on R2. He fought back furiously against Jabba’s guards and Boba Fetta, while Leia took advantage of the chaos to strangle the giant Hutt and Han, still half blind, tried to keep Lando, who had infiltrated the palace as a guard, from falling into the Sarlaac. The group fled after blowing up the barge. Luke only discovered later that his future wife, an imperial assassin at the time, was also undercover, and would have killed him had Jabba not brushed her off and refused to let her on the barge.


Luke returned to Dagobah and visited Yoda, who was now dying. Yoda told Luke that he had to face Vader. Initially, the young Jedi was reluctant, not wanting to kill his own father. Obi-Wan also appeared, revealing to Luke that Leia was actually his sister. After Yoda became one with the Force, Luke left and headed to Sullust, where the rebel fleet was hiding. They proceeded to Endor, to take down the second, much larger Death Star that had been built there. A stolen code allowed the shuttle to land on the Forest Moon of Endor, although Vader sensed them coming.

The group was separated, with Leia chasing after Stormtroopers on speeders and getting befriended by an Ewok named Wicket. Han, Luke and Chewie were captured by other Ewoks, and taken to the village. The meat-eating Ewoks planned to eat them as a sacrifice to c-3po, who they believed was a god. Luke’s use of levitation to lift Leia’s chair convinced the tribe that Threepio would use evil magic on them if they did not release the group. The protocol droid then convinced the Ewoks to join in the attack on the Death Star’s shield generator.
Luke talked with Leia, telling her of their relationship and that he had to face his father, something she was frightened about. He surrendered to the imperials while the rebel force attacked the generator. Luke again battled Vader, this time as the Dark Lord’s equal in lightsaber combat. Even the Emperor was impressed by how quickly Luke picked up the skills. Luke tried to turn Vader back to the light, but was unable, and the two Sith lords were unhappy with Luke’s emotional control. Vader chased him, bringing down metal infrastructure with his own saber and Luke hid, not wanting to give into his anger. Vader picked up on his thoughts of Leia, and the idea of Vader turning her to evil enraged Luke. He fought back furiously.

Luke cut off Vader’s mechanical hand, but then reigned in his anger, declaring himself a Jedi and refusing to kill the defeated Vader. Palpatine became angry that he couldn’t turn Luke and decided to kill him instead. Tortured by the Emperor’s Force lightning, Luke begged his father to help, and the remaining goodness inside of Anakin was finally touched. No longer Vader, Anakin threw Palpatine into the reactor shaft, killing him (for the moment) but fatally damaging his life support suit.

Luke tried to save his father, but was unable to do anything for him in time. Anakin asked for his helmet to be removed so that he could see his son with his own eyes before his death. Luke escaped with Anakin’s body as the second Death Star was destroyed. Redeemed, Anakin became one with the Force, and Luke saw him with Obi-Wan and Yoda as he burned Vader’s armor on the moon of Endor.

Luke led a fight on Bakura shortly after, fighting the invading Sii-Ruuk, a race that used the energy of their victims to power their technology. After the planet was freed, Luke was inspired to begin searching for more Force users to rebuild the order. He led one final, unexpected battle during a trip to Corellia, and then turned the leadership of Rogue Squadron over to Wedge Antillies.

Luke found himself caught up in a lot of the post-Imperial chaos. Systems were fighting to break free of the Imperial remnants and the Rebellion was trying to build a new government. Again, Luke fell in love, but the girl, Mary, was killed shortly after. Luke became nervous about training new Jedi and the danger of the Dark Side, but his attempt to avoid causing evil ended up creating it when he refused to train a young man who fell under the influence of the Sith. Flint was redeemed in the ensuring battle, but another young rebel lost her life. Luke met with the spirits of Obi-Wan and Anakin and Yoda and agreed to begin training new Jedi.

Luke fought in the Negai-Tof war, during which he was captured by Lumiya, the Dark Lady of the Sith. He manged to escape, and realized that she was actually his former love, Shira. She escaped him for the time being.

Luke fought to stop Trioculus, who claimed to be a son of Palpatine but was really an imposter, from retrieving one of Vader’s gloves from the ocean of Dak. The mutant escaped with the glove, and Luke learned that he was a puppet for a group of Imperial Grand Moffs. A boy who claimed to have been a Jedi prince helped Luke but was captured by an imposter pretending to be a Sith Supreme Prophet. After the boy and his father, Palpatine’s true son, were helped to escape, the false prophet was stopped by a Grand Admiral.

Luke’s final mission with the Republic Army was battling Lord Shadowspawn, aka Cronal. Luke let himself be captured during the fight, and worked to free the minds controlled by Cronal. He resigned as a general afterward and made a home base on Coruscant.

Luke traveled the galaxy searching for other Force-sensitives, while continuing his own training and his search for information on the Order. Much of what he found was forged, however. He invited Corran Horn to train as a Jedi after rescuing him.

Luke went to Dathomir when Han abducted Leia and took her there during his competition with Prince Isolder for her affections. Luke encountered the Nightsisters and battled a group of Dark Side users. Shortly after, Luke was able to learn more about his father’s childhood and had one more meeting with Obi Wan, who would visit him only one more time later on.

Luke fought in the Thrawn Crisis, and encountered his future wife for the first time. Thrawn was a Grand Admiral who was trying to rebuild the Empire. During the battles, Luke was rescued by smuggler Talon Karrde, and met his associate, Mara Jade. Mara was angry at Luke at the time, because he had killed the Emperor and ended her privileged life as an imperial assassin. Palpatine had implanted a command in her mind before his death, driving her to kill Luke. The compulsion was ultimately purged when Luke battled a dark clone of himself, called Luuke Skywalker. It was Mara who ultimately killed Luuke and fulfilled the emperor’s command, finally purging it from her mind.

The two ended up working together out of necessity for a time, rescuing Karrde and trying to end the threat of Thrawn. Their relationship softened a bit and Luke set her up as an intermediary between the Republic and the smuggling community. He gave her Anakin’s lightsaber to replace her lost one.

Luke briefly joined the Dark Side to understand it better and to try to defeat it from within. He was challenged many times by Palpatine, who had placed himself into a clone body. Luke nearly lost himself in the Dark Side due to Palpatine’s desire to break him down, but managed with the help of Leia to overcome the darkness and battle Palpatine. Luke then had to battle the last of Palpatine’s cloned bodies as the Emperor sought to possess Leia’ s unborn child, Anakin, though Han ultimately killed Palpatine.

About this time, Luke, now a Jedi Master, finally established his Jedi Academy and began training more new Jedi. He still faced threats, though, from dark Jedi. One captured him on Mustafar in an attempt to create a group of dark Luke clones, but Luke managed to escape with help from the dark Jedi’s brother. There was also Exar Kun, who influenced and possessed one of Luke’s students. Luke was alble to free the man and he became an accomplished Jedi himself.

Luke dealt with feuding Gammorean tribes and got injured, waking up on a battlemoon called the Eye of Palpatine. He discovered a woman whose body had died, but her spirit had survived. During the battles with the warring tribes and a strange computer intelligence called the Will, a woman who had been on the ship died, and Callista took over her body.

Callista became distressed because she couldn’t touch the Force. During a trip to Hoth, they had to battle a herd of wampas and only narrowly escaped with their lives. Shortly after, he believed Callista had died, but she then sent a message saying that she was leaving to try and find her path in life and to discover more about her problem with the Force. Luke accepted it, though he was saddened.

Later, Luke heard of Callista’s location and decided to try and find her, only to end up shipwrecked and fighting a hostile tribe. He continued to search for Callista, but found himself also searching for Leia, who had been taken captive. She escaped, though, and Luke kept up his search for Callista. He found out shortly after that she had been coordinating for the other side of the battle, and had to accept that they weren’t going to be together.

Next was the Empire Reborn movement, led by a fallen Jedi and involving some of Luke’s fallen students. His own students helped him to fight the group, but although several groups associated with the movement were defeated, it was difficult to kill it for good. He had to wage a battle against a being called Hethrir, and another called Waru, who tricked Luke into a trance and pulled him into it, with Han and Leia. Waru ultimately dragged Hethrir in with him and the trio was able to escape. Hethrir finally went back to his own world.

Luke found himself unable to feel the Force as strongly and went on a mission to figure out why. While he was on retreat, he was tricked by a Fallanassi who claimed she had information on Luke’s mother. He tried to find out more about the Fallanassi group, ended up in another battle, and eventually discovered that what he had been told was not true.

In the Aldermanian rebellion, the senate building on Coruscant was attacked. Luke went searching for the attacker. The bomber was desperate for power and threatened to detonate more bombs across the galaxy. Mara Jade arrived with Force-blocking ysalamari and Leia shot the guy before he could do more damage.

Luke helped put down the first Correllian insurrection. Shortly after, he and Mara went to retrieve an important document from a fortress called the Hand of Thrawn. Luke Force-bonded with Mara at the time, and as the fortress flooded, he asked her to marry him if they made it out alive.

Luke and Mara’s wedding was a larger affair than they wanted, partly due to Threepio getting involved. Luke got caught up in a bar fight at his bachelor party, and a group of Imperial loyalists planned to disrupt the wedding and kill the couple, but they were thwarted.

Luke continued to train his students, including his nephew Anakin. They spent time on Tattooine and faced Tusken raiders and then had a mission to Borgo Prime, where they found Obi-Wan’s lightsaber and another Jedi relic.

After a fight with one of Karrde’s smuggling associates, Luke and Mara investigated the Outbound Flight ship, getting captured at one point along the way and fighting the Vagaari warriors while aboard the ship.
Luke returned to the Jedi academy to continue his training of new Jedi. He oversaw operations while taking new missions and leaving a lot of the instruction to other Jedi. He and Tenel Ka infiltrated a academy for Dark Jedi, where Jaina, Jacen and Lowbacca had been held captive. He ultimately had to prepare his own students for a battle with the Shadow Academy followers, which they won.

The next battle was against the Diversity Alliance, a group threatening terrorism against humans. There was also a resurgence of the Black Sun group that Luke and his students took part in fighting.

The galaxy was invaded by the Yuzhaan Vong, a race of dogmatic alien invaders and Luke would spend the next few years helping in the conflict while trying to reorganize the Jedi Council. Mara Jade also became ill during this time, due to coomb spores that had been released during a battle with the Vong. Most sufferers died quickly, and it was only Mara’s Jedi abilities that let her survive longer. She found a temporary cure, but when she became pregnant, she was told by healer Cilghal that the cure would harm her unborn child. Luke had to help her purge the disease from her body after it resurged and nearly killed her. She was able to safely deliver Luke’s son, Ben.

Luke dealt with strife and rival factions within the Jedi Order, although eventually the Order had to unify to fight another battle that threatened them all.

Although the threat of the Vong had been driven back, a race called the Killiks also threatened the galaxy, starting the Swarm War. During this time, Luke discovered holograms about his parents’ history that were still held by R2-D2. The little droid tried to stop Luke from seeing them, but he managed to coax the droid into complying and showing them. Luke declared himself the Grand Master of the Jedi around this time.

A second civil war broke out in the galaxy, with Han feeling compelled to side with his homeworld, Correllia. The Solos themselves,though, ran into problems with Han’s treacherous cousin, Thracken. Luke and Mara infiltrated Correllia, and ultimately, Han and Leia ended up abandoning the other side and the rift between Luke and his sister’s family was repaired.

Luke had begun having visions of a dark figure that resembled his father, and later discovered that it was Jacen. His nephew fell to the Dark Side and declared himself a Sith Lord. He was under the control of Lumiya, who had escaped Luke many years earlier and was now Jacen’s master. Ultimately, Jacen, intending to sacrifice his mom, Leia to cement his status as a Sith Lord, hit Mara with a poison dart when she interfered.

Luke is pulled into the Warehouse just as he feels Mara’s death.


Previous Game History, IF APPLICABLE: (250 words minimum - tell us what happened to your character in that previous game and how it impacted their characterization) NA
Personality: (200 words minimum)
Luke is a classic small town boy thrust into a lifetime of adventure and heroism. He grew up wanting to be a hero and have big adventures, despite not knowing of his famous and troubling parentage. His aunt and uncle did their best to raise him as a responsible, upstanding young man, but they, especially Owen, kept his heritage a secret out of fear that he’d follow his father and turn dark.

At this point in his canon, Luke has matured a lot from his beginnings. He retains his sense of idealism and his belief in the inherent good of other beings, and he has a natural desire to help people and do the right thing. Sometimes he can still be a bit too easily influenced, something like his dad. However, he is more confident, capable and wiser, as well as more aware of the reality of the war against the Dark Side. He has been through a lot of dark times along with the good ones, and they’ve tempered and forged him into a powerful warrior. By this point in his life, he is a Jedi Grand Master, his power equal to many of the most powerful Jedi of the New Order.

He does his best to keep his cool and stay calm, but although he made a personal decision not to give in to the temptation of the Dark Side, that is not to say he hasn’t struggled with it, and nearly given into it at one point. He knows he must reign in his emotions and do his best to control them. Unlike Old Order Jedi, he’s often able to harness both sides of the Force without going over to the Dark Side. He’s devoted to the Jedi path, but at the same time, he is not entirely like the Jedi of old. He isn’t afraid to feel, to live, to have emotions and attachments.

Luke is fiercely protective of those he cares about, and will do almost anything to help them. Leia and Mara are the two closest ; he has a twin bond with his sister and a close pair-bond with his wife. He had a lot of encounters with the opposite sex over the years, even seeming to get close to Callista, but it was not until Mara that he found his true soul mate. With her, their initial volleys of snarking and harsh remarks at each other have evolved into playfully teasingly snarking at each other.

Special facts/special abilities about your character: Be detailed.
Luke is a skilled pilot who can fly just about anything, and inherited his dad’s innate military-style flying ability. He’s also got some of his father’s mechanical skill. By this time in his canon, he’s developed into a good leader and mentor, despite not really being a natural at it. He’s a naturally good swordsman, although there’s likely some Force skill there as well, as he was able to pick up his father’s form of saber fighting after only one exposure to it and has mastered several other forms over his life.

He has an ability to see shatterpoints, a Force-guided sense of where something can break or change the course of events. He can boost his natural speed, strength and stamina with the Force, or give a boost to another Force user, most frequently Mara or Leia. He can also enter a battle meld to fight in perfect mental tandem with them. At one point, he Force-bonded with Mara, essentially melding their Force presences and minds together in a deep connection. He can use the classic Jedi Mind Trick to influence others, but does so only rarely, due to not being fond of the method. He can also use the Force to disguise himself.

Luke is telepathic to other Force users, and can feel their thoughts and emotions. However, probing another person’s mind is something that’s done only with permission, unless there’s good reason. This is heightened somewhat with those closest to him, like Leia, Mara and the Solo children and he can sense things like their pain even if he isn’t consciously connecting to them. He especially tends to detect or finish Mara’s thoughts at times without realizing it, sometimes earning him a playfully snarky response like “get out of my head, Skywalker”.

If injured, he can place himself in a Jedi healing trance and heal himself to a point, even with injuries that others might not survive. Mara will typically wake him from one with “I love you, Luke”.

He can shield his Force presence and make himself undetectable to others. He can generate copies of objects or vehicles, although it took time to learn to use the technique without burning himself out. He can become so bonded with the Force that he is essentially one with it, vastly increasing his strength and power with his lightsaber in battle, and that he may not even seem to be there, physic ally or even personality-wise. He can use a type of Force-lightning called Electric Judgement. He can easily destroy even large objects or teleport them great distances. He can create illusions that are visible even at great distances.

What is arriving with your character? (Note: they will only arrive with things that can be carried on their bodies, e.g.: wallets, wands, briefcases, backpacks, favorite handheld weapon, small pets, infants, etc.) His lightsaber and possibly his comm device, although it won’t work here.



PART 3 - Writing Samples
1. First Person Writing Sample: Must be for the character you are apping, 100 words minimum, may use previous game threads
It's still had to believe that Mara is here and alive. I know I felt her die, I felt the link being severed. It felt as though my world had fallen apart. But when I found myself in here, I felt the link return to life, as though nothing had happened. I am still trying to understand what this place is, exactly, and how I was brought here. Mara has tried to explain to me as much as she can, but I expect that it will take some time before I'm fully comfortable. It does appear that there is no escape, although any of us can be pulled back into our world at any time. I find myself struggling with that. I know that if one or both of us is pulled back into our world, Mara will certainly die, just as I felt before I left. As long as we are here, she is alive, and we are together. Part of me wishes that we could be assured of staying here, but I know that it would not be the will of the Force. I cannot abandon the Galaxy and the Jedi order if a way can be found to return home. I do not know if we will remember any of this, no one is certain. I will make the most of what time we've been given, but when the Force wills that we have to return home, I will accept it and do what must be done.

2.Third Person Writing Sample: Gemini City Log post:
T Luke entered the hotel and approached the room he'd been told Anakin and Obi-Wan were sharing together. He'd been lucky himself, he thought. He hadn't had to deal with finding accommodations since he'd simply moved on in with Mara. He still had some shopping to do, but he had gone ahead and got a couple of necessities, like a warmer jacket. Like he'd told Anakin, this place was better than Hoth, but it was still cold.

He had wanted to meet with Obi-Wan again once he'd settled in, as their last meeting had been a rather short one due to them being outside and recently arrived. Luke had messaged him and arranged a time when Anakin would be out. He was a little less nervous around his father now, but it would still be easier to talk to Obi-Wan alone. Luke wondered as he located the room how much, if anything, Anakin had told. He still thought of the talk, and of what he'd learned about Padme. It made him wish even more that he could've met her.

Luke felt Obi-Wan's Force presence in the room as he knocked, though he made no effort to probe. His shields were mid-strength. He didn't feel the need to be as alert and careful as he had around his father at first, but he was still wrestling with his conflict over Mara and how to tell the Old Order Master that he wasn't keeping to all of the order's tenets. He knew he couldn't stop Obi-Wan from picking up the nervousness he felt inside, but he did his best to stay calm outwardly.

He knocked on the door and waited for an answer.

3. First or Third person Sample: 1st person five sentences minimum, 3rd person 250 words (ex: reaction to arriving, first time using the Farnsworth.) This device seems a little strange. We have personal communicators like these where I come from, but they’re a lot smaller. But, at least it’s functional. I had my comm when I ended up here, but it doesn’t seem to work at all. I will just have to get used to it.
