If I am backseat moderating here, profile moderators, let me know and I'll clear off.Correct.
I appreciate that but this is not actually Raymond Reddington from the source material. This is obviously a copy to anyone who recognizes and by me as the maker, but this is Raymond Reddington unique to this Star Wars setting. Apart from his name, appearance and certain details of his backstory and personality, this is not the same man. None of The Blacklist locations and whatsuch exist here.If I am backseat moderating here, profile moderators, let me know and I'll clear off.
@Die Shize we do not normally allow carbon copies of existing characters in canon, or other series. However, we do allow 'inspired by'. My suggestion would be a rework of this character, so it is inspired by this chap, and a few other similar criminal dudes, but is not a direct carbon copy - if you catch my meaning.
A good set of examples would be Sreeyas 'Empress Drast' from two (three?) TLs ago who, from what I see, was inspired by Belletrix Lestrange, but was far far far from a copy of her. Also, my Hutts, inspired by canon Hutts, but not a carbon copy etc etc
@Wit (from what I can see) was not just making an observation, he was trying to make the point that you cannot just copy a character from another fandom over, and change the name.
That's literally the whole character. We don't allow carbon-copies of characters from other media. So you'll need to retool this character into something that isn't a rip off or it will get archived.Die Shize said:"All I’m essentially doing on the copy-paste front is taking the name, face, personality and backstory details."
Yes, it basically is. A character ripoff in a ripoff setting and I don’t deny that. That was the whole point. To roleplay this character unique to this setting because it sounded fun but it is what it is.That's literally the whole character. We don't allow carbon-copies of characters from other media.

It’s not much different than how people can already take an actual name and change letters around and add letters and drop letters, real names or made up names from other mediums. I’ve seen a Deucalian of House Stark or something, granted from a previous timeline. Difference here is once again the immediate association with “Raymond Reddington”.So the changes you made to the background are all well and good, but the name seems a little ridiculous. It's comparable to making a cyborg character, using Darth Vader as the FC and calling him Barth Bader.
