    Is anyone else disappointed with the lack of EU characters that have appeared in TCW? After nearly 100 episodes we have only seen (IIRC) seven EU characters: Asajj Ventress, Gorga Desilijic Aarrpo, Ky Narec (albeit in flashbacks), and Boss, Fixer, Sev and Scorch from Delta Squad.

    Quinlan Vos and Aayla Secura don't count since they appear in the films.

    A few cameos of some EU characters here and there wouldn't hurt.

    More EU characters = more continuity problems

    If a character is handled well then there won't be any wrecked things.

    Vos was planed and mentioned in Ep3 but never seen.
    Too bad they removed the Revan & Bane thing for Mortis that would have been cool, but the arc worked out really well so...
    I don't mind them not having that much EU characters actually but I would have really liked to see that Revan & Bane thing they have planned for Mortis but I think Mortis is f their best work so they probably made the right choice to exclude them...
    I would however see more of movie characters like season 1 had instead of these random rebels, younglings and droids we've never heard of as the main characters.
    Let's have more Mace Windu, Ki-Adi Mundi, Tarkin, Yularen...
    They did a great job on Vos though he had a great connection with Obi-Wan wouldn't mind seeing that again.

    Having all that said, let's get to the bottom of what I'm saying: I wouldn't mind having more EU characters but I've never "enjoyed" them just as much as the movie characters so it isn't a need for me.

    Quinlan Vos was never in the movies so he is a EU character

    Yes he was, he appears in TPM and was mentioned in ROTS. Therefore he is a movie character.

    The way Vos was portraited in TCW wasn't exactly the way I imagined him to be like.
    I don't want TCW to use EU characters for the same reasons as the others already mentioned.
    Although, seeing Jaxxon in TCW probably won't hurt...

    So, what EU characters would you like to see in TCW? Callista Masana would be interesting.

    Isn't her life too complicated for TCW.

    She's already appeared in a TCW novel- No Prisoners.

    I don't know if it counts any more than Quinlan Vos appearing for a brief shot in TPM and having one line stated about him in RotS.

    I went nuts when I heard about and saw the Darth Bane and Darth Revan character models they made for Mortis...that would have been freaking amazing.

    Depends on if you consider TCW novels a valid supplement to the series.

    Raith Sienar, Sate Pestage, Kinman Doriana, Xizor, Durge, Garm Bel Iblis, K'Kruhk, T'ra Saa, Tholme, A'Sharad Hett, Kento Marek, Rahm Kota, Kazdan Paratus, Maris Brood, Voolvif Monn, Foul Moudama, Roron Corobb, Bant Eerin, Jax Pavan, Soon Bayts and Serra Keto among others.

    I would include Tsui Choi, but he has a cameo in ROTS.

    Still include him - he's an EU character first, appearing in the Jedi Council: Acts of War in 2000.

    I personally don't think that was him, it feels more like it was just a member of the same species (Lepi).

    It's TCW, they like to destroy things...




    Yeah, problem is, Revan is Revan, no "Darth" Revan. He died as a hero, he is a hero, so I have no idea why they could use him in this way.

    It might have been cool and I'll grant you that the models are fun to look at and tend to inspire my imagination, too. Still, for me there are at least two very good reasons for the two not to have appeared (in addition to LucasFilm's reasoning).

    First, the deleted scene shows The Son almost being manipulated by the two Sith and I thought that quite an important point was made that the Dark Side is very much more than the Sith. That simple Darksiders don't equal the Dark Side, etc.

    Second, Revan was redeemed to the Light Side. Why on Earth would he, of all Sith Lords, suddenly be showing up, offering advice to The Son, of all creatures? The IRL answer is probably that Darth Revan is a very popular character and it would be cool to see him doing his thing, but still, you know?

    They prefer to ignore good things and do great things with them. Like ignoring my favorite CIS character Tikkes.

    I guess when they already did the Clone Wars in the EU you would just ignore it so when you rehash their stories it's not as big a deal.

    I know that not everyone counts themselves among the fans of The Force Unleashed series (and I'm not certain that, given the parameters of the discussion, TFU even qualifies as EU), but I enjoyed the character of Rahm Kota and, as I'd really like to see him make an appearance or three on The Clone Wars, I thought I'd take this opportunity to put in a good word.

    The Clone War itself takes place in the years of the General's young prime, set during the time that Kota makes his name as a legitimate war hero. I'd welcome the chance to actually see Rahm choosing not to lead clones (in my mind, as a Jedi finally taking a stand against using soldiers who were never given the opportunity to decide for themselves a direction in life), opting instead to assemble his own volunteer militia. It might even be neat to see Kota team with Kento or Mallie Marek for an adventure.

    Should the makers of TCW decide to invest in the necessary character models, the actual story almost writes itself. At the least, there are some nice themes already established with the character, just waiting to be explored. Call in Cully Fredricksen and we'd be on to a winner, methinks.
