Hello!


I am an old rp’er whose life has allowed him to bring this wonderful tie back into it. I’m especially excited that this coincides with a new timeline!

My first character is a departure for me, and will hopefully be part of whatever the Jedi or general light side users are in the next timeline. I am very interested in brainstorming what that might look like once this trilogy closes, but until then I am eager to put my baby into the world and for some relationships and backstory!

I am far from done, but there is a link to my workshop in the signature. Numa is an empath who grew up in an unsavory environment, so she is very reserved and deliberate around most sentiments, but enjoys the company of droids and animals. She is very task oriented and mechanically talented, and will hopefully enter the storyline as a Knight, but anything before that is fair game. My loose concept is she grew up on Canto Bight, and was affected by the events of Last Jedi.

Open to talking ideas here, and so grateful to be back on the site!

Welcome back to the site, Scott! I also got back on just in time for this new TL and have a whole slew of concepts in my workshop (Captain's Quarters).

I've got a few vague concepts myself, but for Numa specifically my space-case Gand Findsman Zylass or my Jedi-turned-Inquisitor-turned-Farmer Gensaric could have some interesting encounters with her. Of course Pala and PM-1 could have a fun little adventure with Numa, being scavengers and all.

Thanks for volunteering @The Captain !


Tell me more about Gensaric. How does his pre timeline life work around film chronology? I am currently thinking they maybe met during a period of transition when Numa was searching for force users... or perhaps they just meet at a bar cuz why not? Any thought you had about that would help bolster his history?

Similarly, Pala could be a great foil to Numa, who very likely worked as an engineer to peddle her way onto to ships and get around the galaxy. They might be stronger as contemporaries. Any inspiration there?




Also remaining open to anyone else who want to firm up their backstory into the next TL!

Gensaric became a knight before Episode I, and served as a Jedi until the end of Episode III and the start of Order 66. After losing his Padawan (name pending) he gave in to the Darkside and became an Inquisitor between III and IV. Around IV-ish he was tracking a Quarren Jedi-Purge survivor named Dera Praatu when they both crash landed on Lah'mu. Functionally stranded, Dera converted Gensaric back from the Darkside and they became hermits in the wilderness until Dera died of old age before VII and left a final message for Gensaric to leave Lah'mu and return to the galaxy. It took him some time to get off world, but he could easily meet Numa either when she was looking for Force Users or just bump into her somewhere.

As for Pala, being an independent salvager she's always looking for new contact or potential employees for tough jobs. Hiring an engineer like Numa would be right up her alley.

Groovy, thanks!

While I am eager for force stories, the more I think about it, the more nervous I am to endeavor until I have a better idea of what we want force culture to be on the site post RoS.

HOWEVER, I could definitely be down with a mean and desperate Numa needing handouts from a Scrapper about her age. interested?

I doubt they would change the nature of the Force too much between timelines, but I definitely see your point.

We could do a thread between Numa and Pala. Do you want to start or do you want me to start?

I have sort of a set up and location idea in my workshop already, so I’ll start it.

I’m considering leaving it open since it’s such a universal setting, and then you and I can do our own thing. Sound good?

So would that be an Open thread and an Ask thread, or an Open thread where we focus on Numa and Pala.
