But yes, oddly enough, this question is what inspired me to write LUCIFER'S STAR. I was underwhelmed by the enemies of the Force Awakens and how quickly Finn turned to murdering his fellow First Order officers. So, inspired by Michael Stackpole and Baron Soontir Fel's arc, I decided to write a book from the perspective of a "soldier of the Evil Empire." My protagonist is a loyalist and great believer he's the good guy right up until they're defeated at their Battle of Endor equivalent--which results in him having to cope with not only the fact was his side the losers but people HATED THEM. Worse, he also has to deal with the fact they were against his own morals once the truth comes out about his activities. I owe the EU a lot for making me think about subjects like this. Of course, I don't paint the New Republic equivalent with a very rosy brush in my book either.
