    So the one thing I don't know where to place is Obsession. Adi Gallia getting killed we can reinterpret as severely wounded (Grievous will just have to be happy with finishing off Master Bayts).

    But what about Ventress? Going by that ending I can't see her going back to Dooku or him taking her back for that matter. I'm almost tempted to call that Ventress a clone that Dooku had ready and was using to lure Kenobi into a trap/ away from the real Ventress who was busy recuperating from what Anakin did to her. Apologies if this was resolved already and I just missed it.

    Speaking of Ventress in Obession....


    Something I have always wondered is why she never went back to the planet she ruled? She was practically a messiah there. Seems like a pretty good retirement package to me.

    We discussed Obsession some time back. It was decided that it could work as a story where the ending transitions into her bounty hunting phase, but after she meets the Nightsisters in s3. Exhausted from the last battle in s3, Dooku kidnaps her and brainwashes her to secretly try to get her back. It fails. She leaves and returns to Talzin after faking her death. Adi Gallia survives and is then permenantly killed in s5. This allows the ending to retain its original meaning, where she chooses to leave the war and never return, as she is only seen as a bounty hunter or Nightsister after these events. Why Anakin thinks her dead would be unknown... but those bits would probably have to be ignored, or you'd assume some unseen conflict between the two. Obi-wan still is interested in finding her though, since he realizes she's been cast out by Dooku, and could be saved.

    It's not perfect, but I think it does the most to keep the idea behind obsession intact. It felt right when I read it with those ideas in mind too.

    Oh ok then, that does seem to work. Thanks for the explanation.

    Also, don't forget the fact that Adi Gallia is a squid-like parasite worn as a hat that can survive the death of its human host.


    NEVER forget that.

    His Phase II appearance was always my favorite.

    Funny thing, it took me until about 2011 to realize that Alpha later got red-striped armor in his Phase I appearance. Alpha and Fordo were the Rex and Cody of my generation. I want to see more of those guys. :(

    You know, the funny thing about them originally featuring Alpha but changing his name to Rex is that if they had done so, everyone probably would've freaked about his fate in Obsession being ruined, too. Adi, Ventress...Obsession was literally one character away from being annihilated from canon for good. But I still would've loved to see Alpha in TCW. Sure, I ended up loving Rex, but it would've been the ultimate nostalgia-gift to my 10-year-old self if Alpha had been in the show even once.

    Maybe it's because I read Republic so late, but I thought Alpha was just OK. Plenty badass, but not much more.

    Not really CW related but I'm re-reading Outbound Flight and again I have to wonder what was the Council thinking? C'baoth a Master? I woulnd't give this guy the job of cleaning toilets let alone Jedi Master ... minions of Xendor were they all high on spice at the time? Why did they keep tolerating this arrogant voshtet?

    Speaking off C'baoth, how do you think he'd have done during the Clone Wars? He'd make Krell look subtle probably.

    The old Thrawn Trilogy indicated that C'baoth just declared himself a "Master" - leading to Luke wondering about how that worked.

    C'baoth didn't give a **** what the Council thought. If he said he was a Master, then he was.

    And he and Krell would have either gotten along spectacularly or killed each other.

    If he declared himself a Master it still begs the question why Windu would put up with it instead of putt8ng C'baoth in his place. Because letting stuff like that go sets a dangerous precedent.

    It seems that the early EU writers didn't envision the Jedi order as being quite so centralized as it came to be in the prequels.

    Windu may have tried. C'baoth would have given him the C'baoth version of "Go **** yourself."

    As much as their personalities lead me to believe they'd get along spectacularly, both of them have that absolute need to be THE man in charge that I believe one or both of them would be dead within ten seconds of their meeting.

    Or maybe Krell was one of C'baoth's apprentices. *face goes pale*

    I'd pay good money to see that as a spin-off. A dark version of Grumpy Old Men.

    "Moron"

    "Putz"

    I wonder if Joruus made a Kreell to go along with Luuke?
