    Beforehand, I'm perfectly aware that this is not true, and that Bo Katan was made to sell female action figurines. It's just for fun.

    So, Bo Katan is one of the handful of green-eyed red-haired females in the EU. (In fact, there are to the best of my knowledge, her, Mara Jade and the BH from Kotor 2...)

    She is also the sister of Duchess Satine-the woman that made Obi Wan betray his Jedi vows on chastity, apparently.

    Having intimal meetings with your beloved sister or brother is quite frowned socially, but happens awfully in fiction....

    In addition to the usual stuff (such as Sidious gloating ''ah ah ah, I have my vengeance on you Obi-Wan, who in addition to thwarting my plan on a weekly basis during the Clone Wars destroyed my apprentice at Mustafar !'') it would also have a nice ''parallel'' with the so bright idea of Han and Leia to hame their kid Anakin ''like is grandpa''.

    Or explain nicely why Luke stop hearing Obi Wan Kenobi force visions as he meet Mara Jade.

    Only on the Jedi Council Forums could a conversation like this happen.

    Tenel Ka and her mother

    I have conversations with myself all the time. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to have an intelligent conversation at all.

    As for Bo Katan being Mara Jade's mother (which is what I think you're getting at, I'm really not sure)... Better hope Filoni isn't reading this thread, else he will make it so.

    Just to put this out there... the Jedi are celibate, not chaste. They can't marry or have romantic entanglements... but they can get their freak on.

    Read my above post again for my ideas on the topic.

    Yes, I know this is a stupid idea. I even put it on my message. But this is a message board about Star Wars....

    If Filoni did read these boards, TCW would be much better. So, I reject your concerns.

    Mara Jade is a gender flipped clone of Palpatine. So is Lumiya. You're welcome.

    Hey, what is lamer ?

    My theory ?

    Or the admitted motivation for creating Bo Katan ? (which is, we wanted to have a female character so people could cosplay it at conventions)

    Don't worry, we'll get more eventually, soon as TCW gets around to giving us the Planet of Scottish People.

    Explaining the motivation is easy, Boba Fett sells action figures, so they took it to the next level by having Boba Fett with breasts, thereby giving joy to all the fanboys in all the basements everywhere

    As of the latest TCW episode, I am now prepared to entertain wild speculation that Mara is the illegitimate daughter of Tutso Mara, and the whole Temple bombing was staged by Palpatine specifically to kill him off so he could then take young Mara for Hand training.

    Yes, heaven forbid they create cool new female characters unless the plot specifically forces them to. You certainly wouldn't want to give young girls someone fully-dressed to cosplay as. Perish the thought.

    didn't we already have that?

    except they weren't people, they were Lemurs

    also i'm curious as to whether all Nautolans are Jamaican or just Kit Fisto . . .

    Mara was born 17 BBY. Other than that little problem, I kind of like the idea that Bo Katan and Obi-Wan were her parents.

    If you have red hair and green eyes and are in any way involved in galactic affairs during the prequel era, get ready to be accused of parenting Mara Jade. Might as well call to book an appearance on Maury before he calls you.

    Also, if your name is Obi-Wan Kenobi, keep a steady reserve of cash on hand to pay for all the frivolous paternity claims that never seem to stop coming.

    edit: I guess this is as good a time as any to bring up my brilliant theory regarding Lando Calrissian and Captain Panaka being related. They're both black, you see, and furthermore....

    Except we know Lando was born in 31 BBY on Socorro, so unless Panaka hooked up with someone on Coruscant while he was there, and she left for Socorro...well, it could happen. But the pessimism gene ought to have been passed on...
    "I had no other choice!" "This deal is getting worse all the time" "...If they didn't know we were coming." "Better than they will against that Death Star!" Though he does have some more optimistic moments, possibly from his mother. You may be on to something here.

    This is why I'm opposed to birth years in EGs - all it takes is an unexpected story idea to throw them out anyway. Does anyone here really think that if someone wanted to make Bo and Obi Mara's parents, they'd go "oh, but she wasn't born until 17 BBY...never mind."
