    The Dark Times: 17 BBY

    This is based on the storyline that I started a while ago:

    Rise of the Empire - http://boards.theforce.net/the_saga/b10476/28730322
    To the Edge of Night (sequel) - http://boards.theforce.net/the_saga/b10476/29232522
    Fires of Retribution (sequel) - http://boards.theforce.net/the_saga/b10476/30256079

    Overview: (in case you don't feel like reading the entire storyline. :D)

    The events that happened during Revenge of the Sith changed slightly. Darth Vader was successful in defeating Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar. Vader killed Obi-Wan, taking his lightsaber as a trophy, and thus not having to don the infamous suit. He later killed Padme, getting a glimpse of a baby boy through the Force as she fell to her death. He dismissed it as the image of his unborn child. In truth, the twins were born, being separated: Leia going to the Organas and Luke going to the Owens homestead on Tatooine. Later the personal guard of Vader, consisting of 10 clones including Commander Cody, give Vader a gift: the suit that we have come to love so much. He can wear it when he wishes, however, and when wearing the helmet his voice is changed to the one we all know.

    About one year later a group of Jedi, led by Siri Tachi, tried to kill Vader on Coruscant, during the first Empire Day celebrations. Not all went as planned, however, when a Twi'lek waitress unwittingly betrayed the Jedi and Senator Organa. Vader and a group of clones were sent to the area, where the Jedi make a stand. Senator Organa escapes, just as a group of Black Sun thugs, led by Xixor - who is not yet in control of the group. Xixor kills any clones in his way, trying to obtain at least one Jedi. He fails, however he is able to plant a transmitter on the fleeing speeder of the Jedi. Vader in the mean time battles with a Jedi, eventually killing the Jedi. As the Jedi flee the scene, Xixor tracks them, following them on speeder bikes. Eventually Xixor loses the Jedi and gives up pursuit. The Jedi flee the planet to Kashyyyk. There Chewbacca makes preparations for the Jedi to leave the system in two different ships. The Empire is once again tipped off and Vader goes to deal with the Jedi.

    He sets a trap on the landing pad, only springing it when the Jedi, who feel that something is wrong, are on platform with nowhere to take cover. Vader lets the clones unleash a barrage of blaster fire at the Jedi, with only three of them escaping into the ships: Anwen and Jirair in one, and Ireneus in the other. Siri and Erol battle curagously, but Vader defeats both of them in the end. In a surprise attack, a group of Wookiees attack the unprepared clones, killing many in the process. Enraged, Vader wades into the Wookiees and kills them. The events are transmitted back to the Emperor, who uses them as a reason to remove all Imperial status from Kashyyyk, forcing the planet into servitude. He also has Tarkin unleash a devistating attack from his four Star Destroyers in orbit, destroying the village. In space, visited by Obi-Wan as a Force ghost, both Anwen and Jirair are given instructions to go into hiding, reassured that they can become a couple and marry. Obi-Wan also visits Irenues and tells him that he is to go to Tatooine and help watch over Luke.

    Fires of Retribution is only 3 chapters long, and gives a nice update on the happenings of all major parties involved. I suggest reading at least that before signing up.

    Name: Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin
    Age: 47
    Species: Human
    Gender: Male
    Force Sensitive: No
    Physical Appearance: [image=http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/e/ec/Tarkin-CHRON.jpg]
    Weapons: None, commands legions upon legions of storm troopers and battle fleets
    Preferred Clothing: Imperial uniform in tan-grey
    Specialized Skills: Extreme analytical abilities; confident tactical and strategic commander
    Brief Bio: Wilhuff Tarkin was a Human male from Eriadu who became the first Grand Moff and then importantly, the commanding officer of the first Death Star. Born to an influential family, Tarkin lived a life of luxury on the Outer Rim planet Eriadu. Eventually, he became governor of the planet. Tarkin made many influential friends, such as Raith Sienar, and Palpatine.

    When the Galactic Empire was formed in 19 BBY under now-Emperor Palpatine, the ambitious Tarkin became a Moff.

    Sometime prior to 44 BBY, Tarkin married Thalassa Motti, a member of a wealthy and prestigious patrician family on Phelarion. This was more out of expediency than out of any real romantic sentiment; Thalassa was heir to the substantial fortune earned through her family's centuries-old megonite moss mining business, and through her, Tarkin had access to that wealth.

    Tarkin began his career in the Eriadu military. Around 39 BBY he met Raith Sienar; they were apparently classmates at a military academy. By 33 BBY, he had become lieutenant governor of the Seswenna Sector. That year, his mansion was, for a short time, the residence of Supreme Chancellor Valorum, who was on Eriadu representing the Galactic Republic at the Eriadu Trade Summit.

    By that time he had become acquainted with Senator Palpatine; as early as 29 BBY, Tarkin began to work closely with Palpatine, sharing his views on the superiority of Humans and the need for strictly enforced order, and helping him arrange (and stall the investigation into) the murder of the Trade Federation Directorate. Palpatine made him full governor of the Seswenna Sector, as well as appointing him commander of the Republic Outland Regions Security Force. Also at this time, Tarkin had been ordered to keep a watch over Coruscant's Jedi and prevent them from expanding their influence. To this end, he claimed to have spied on Jedi conversations within the temple by passing a broken droid with hidden listening devices onto a young Padawan Jedi Anakin Skywalker, known to be a talented and religious repairer of droids. At this time, he lived in the Prime Senate Spire.

    In 29 BBY, he launched an unsuccessful attack on the living planet Zonama Sekot, and presented Palpatine with Raith Sienar's plans for a moon-sized battle station. This would be his first encounter with the Jedi Anakin Skywalker, who would become a future ally in the Galactic Empire.

    Name: Kevo Sendri
    Age: 25
    Species: Human
    Gender: Male
    Force Sensitive: Yes
    Physical Appearance: http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/c/ce/Lumas_Etima.jpg
    Weapon(s): Two lightsabers, one turquoise bladed, the other emerald bladed
    Preferred Clothing: Loose fitting clothing, usually slight draping to create the illusion of a thicker build.
    Specialized Skills: Jar'Kai duelist (Utilizes two blades), basic medical, armed and unarmed combat, piloting, and diplomacy
    Brief Bio: Born on an uncharted planet somewhere in Wild Space, he and his family fled after it fell under attack from an outside force shortly after he was born. Severely damaged upon leaving orbit Kevo was placed in an escape pod by his parents. Protected by the pods own systems his parents perished as the hull of their ship was breached by cannon fire. Drifting for some years he entered a form of stasis. He ended up in orbit around Naboo and was shortly discovered by a squad of N1 fighters. He was adopted shortly after that by a small family in the lake region of the planet, his new "parents" being gifted in diplomacy and the martial arts. Upon the arrival of a Jedi diplomacy troop sent to mediate between the Gungan and Human population he was discovered quickly, his "parents" trying their best to resolve the situation themselves.

    Shortly after his discovery he was taken to the Jedi temple for training, his Force affinity being sufficient, his age prime at the age of 3. At the temple he was trained in the very skills his "parents" where skilled in. He also learned how to use a lightsaber, specializing in the dual blade style of Jar'Kai. He was also trained in basic medical skills and the use of the Force. The most obscure thing he was trained in was the piloting of interceptor class fighters. He excelled in all of the fields he was trained in becoming a very promising pupil and being knighted at a fairly young age, around 17. When the Clone Wars hit he was already a very skilled Jedi, luckily when Order 66 was issued he had been taken off duty, he had taken the opportunity to look for homeworld, when he went to the coordinates his escape pod had registered, when he arrived at the coordinates he found only rubble and debris, evidence of extreme terraforming visable. Searching amogst the ruins he found the remains of his parents' home, finding several journals, oddly enough centered around the Jedi, their teachings, weapons, abilities etc. He took these with his when he returned to Republic space, only to discover it had turned into the very thing he thought the Jedi had been charged to destroy. Knowing that he was no safe he went into hiding, seeking a life of study, solitude, and gathering the strength to take out the Empire, he hid out on Ossus, the ancient library world of the Jedi. Allying with the Ysanna who lived there he learned even more. He now bides his time to make his move against the Dark Lord of the Sith, and his puppet Vader.

    Glad to be rp'ing again.

    Name: Cedric Skyler
    Age: 33
    Species: Human
    Gender: Male
    Force Sensitive: (yes or no) No
    Physical Appearance: Cedric has dark wavy hair that falls down to his shoulders, is completely clean shaven and wears round purple sunglasses down on the bridge of his nose. He has deep tan, making his skin look a healthy shade of brown. He looks deceptively slim, but his strength is more than most people would think and anyone trained in martial arts can recognize that he knows how to handle himself. He wears a black leather jacket with a white t-shirt underneath and black pants. His sidearm hangs in its holster at his hip and he is often seen carrying his rifle on his back.
    Weapon(s): A modified DL-44 and a DTL-20A rifle.
    Preferred Clothing: A black leather jacket and loose white t-shirt with black pants.
    Specialized Skills: An excellent pilot, gunman, marksman, fighter, resourceful and creative.
    Brief Bio:Cedric grew up on the Imperial world of Bastion in a wealthy home with his parents Missy and Drom Skyler. As Cedric grew up, he hit his teenage years with a bang, disagreeing with father on how he procured his wealth and how he maintained it, stepping on the back of the poor and taking advantage of every penny they made. Cedric would run away from home at the age of 16, hitting the streets, joining those people that he had fought for at home. He found the streets to be harder than he had expected, and quickly ended up in the hospital. His parents came to help him, and though he was reluctant he returned home with them, he returned and would stay with them for two years. During his stay he began to secretly take martial arts lessons and learned how to fire a gun. At the age of 18 he arranged work on a freighter named the Thunder under the command of Captain Rev Zander, a smuggler and mercenary. Cedric learned a lot from his time with Zander, especially that an attack on the crew was an attack on the captain. But the life of a smuggler is a dangerous one and Rev Zander was no stranger to it. A Niemoidian crime lord eventually placed a bounty on his head that had every bounty hunter in the galaxy chasing after him. Zander would be captured and Cedric would chase after him in the Thunder, tracking him down to Nar Shaddaa. Cedric fought through the Niemoidian's lair and an army of bodyguards to get to the cell that Zander was tortured in. Unfortunately, Cedric was too late to save his comrade and friend who died of his wounds in his arms. Before Rev died, though, he gave Cedric sole ownership of the Thunder. Cedric left the great mansion, and razed it to the ground in a fit of rage before flying out of the system.
    Note: The Thunder is a YT-1250 modified for stronger shielding, a more powerful power generator faster and more powerful engines and the weapons have been replaced with military grade laser turrets.

    Age: 5
    Species: Human (Mando)
    Gender: Male
    Force Sensitive: no
    Physical Appearance: In all physical ways TC resembles his base model, Jango fett, but was designed to be a combat expert, and therefore wears a suit of armour that takes the Phase I jet trooper to be crossed with the Phase II shadow trooper. He has multiple scars from the clone wars, and his right eye has been replaced. His helmet has a blast hole over the cybernetic eye.
    Weapons: DC-15A Blaster rifle, DC-17 commando pistol, EMP Launcher, DC-15x sniper rifle, and a large assortment of grenades.
    Ship: A battle scarred Crack-class Cruiser.
    Preferred Clothing: Mentioned above, wears civilian clothing when necessary.
    Specialized Skills: Jetpack use, sniper, frontline assault, stealth, negotiations, recon.
    Brief Bio: TC was a clone in the clone wars, and fought valiantly as part of the 501st. He was promoted to commander after a paticularily awkward situation on Felucia, where all his men were down and the acklays were moving in on their location. When operation knightfall was ordered, he disappeered, as he was made with advanced, independent thinking, and didn't believe that the jedi were at fault. He has assembled a crew of clones and elite combatants in the two years since.

    Seeing as nobody has asked for Anakin, I would love to play the roll of Anakin/ VADER. If you need me to audition for the roll, I would be glad to. Thank you.
