The one with the letter on his face.
So, do the characters in the novel also feature in the comics?
I dont read any SW EU these days so I'm not up to date,but is this novel the Origin story to The Mortis Trilogy from TCW?,it sure seem like it,if so I might be interested.
More like the continuing story of the beginnings of the Jedi Order
Got it,thanks Force Smuggler.
Not that we know off yet
Do we know when this is set relative to the first two arcs of the comic?
I know but I take you count him as white?
All female warriors in Star Wars are redheads.
Seriously? You disregard the fact that it's something completely original (Not Jedi and Sith conflict 1178) and your going to knock it simply because it takes away a sense of mystery? Ignoring the quality of the book itself
I'd actually say DOTJ creates as much mystery as it answers.
If anything, I've got more questions now.
Yeah I always lean that way
What really annoys me is if people are acting like it takes from the story when it does the opposite
Yes to all. Each to their own.
I have a lot of interest in the timeline. We have NOTHING on this early jedi time period at all, except what has come out with the comics. There are thousands upon thousands of years to flesh out. I especially like how the comics feature the Rakata empire.
Yep. I've actually buckled and looked at it in the comic store and I don't think the quality is very good even if I was interested in the era.
Also if its the "Dawn of the Jedi" then yes it is going to be a Jedi and Sith conflict.
You have not read the comics I guess.
Pretty sure this is like 18,790 years before Sith were invented.
Yeah, if they ignore previous canon about the Second Schism and the origins of the Dark Lords I will officially turn my back on this series. One of the main draws of this era is the lack of boring, cliched Jedi-vs-Sith conflict that is identical in almost every scenario (Though JJM put a nice spin on it in KE). The lack of Sith Lords prior to 6900 BBY allows- forces, even- the writers to use other villains, hopefully ones that cannot use the Force.
i have no problem with force using villians. we have force using villians in the time period already. The Rakata and the force hounds.
Well from the preview in Scoundrels it does not look like a Rakata will have a big influence in this novel.
I'm not convinced that's what we have here. The lighting makes it ambiguous, but my first impression was, "Oh, cool, she doesn't look white!"
Believe it or not, not all redheads are white.
Red hair and green eyes both appear amongst Asian populations as well - not as common, but certainly not unheard of.
Not to mention I expect that a lot of Star Wars humans would be considered mixed race by real world standards, in which nearly anything goes.
Looks brownish red really. Which could mean about anything ethnically
