I meant, this fellow isn't big on his expressions slipping, he is a former Jedi. The mind meld for the sake of healing thing seems to work. I am kinda worried some readers may interpret this moment as "shippy" though, I don't want anything about these particular characters interpreted as romantic, and I know there are "geniuses" who interpret the interrogation scene of TFA as romantic *shudders*. I guess these are just my problems, though. As for his mom, no luck here, because whoever she was, she has been dead for centuries. And no crossovers. I position my fanfics as a serious AU that is a TFA fic for people who hated TFA. And most readers don't take any crossovers seriously. Yes, he is unconscious at one point. But thst is before he decided to do what he decided to do. And even then, I left the droid to take care of him, because I didn't want my OC to spend hours staring at a bacta tank awkwardly, trying to figure out where he came from, and would rather have her plan her next move against the enemy. Or train Rey. Or talk to Luke. Or whatever is more interesting to the readers than watching someone else in a bacta tank.
