Alright ladies, gentleman, and other sentients of the galaxy, I've had time to really dig into the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire book and I have to say... It's fantastic!
Expect to see periodic characters, bits of equipment, and perhaps an insertable scene or two to appear. I thought I'd start with a character I love. Blitz is the last Star Wars character I played. He was a rogue clone trooper that fought against the Empire during the Dark Times in a Saga Edition game ran by my friend Stew. Keep in mind that he was originally one of my characters, so of course I made him a badass.
The retired soldier, Blitz, began his life as ARC Trooper BL1T2. Towards the end of the Clone Wars he served under the beautiful togrutan jedi mistress, Evrarka, and her young padawan, Bish. She nurtured his sense of identity and the clone found himself falling in love.Though she knew worldly relationships were forbidden, the jedi didn't dissuade the clone's personal growth. Blitz watched helplessly as his fellow clones gunned down Evrarka. Thinking quickly he grabbed her padawan, and dove off a cliff. Miraculously the pair survived.
Blitz looked after the young jedi as his own son. The two joined up with several other rebellious sorts. They fought the newly formed First Galactic Empire for a few years, but ultimately their little band of rebels went it's separate ways.
Blitz is a security adviser and bodyguard for hire. While not a member of the Rebel Alliance, he's a sympathizer and has been known to do "charity" work for them from time to time. Though his helmet is the only original piece left, Blitz maintains a fully functional suit a clonetrooper/stormtrooper armor.
