Q: can i use a SW character, or any other in a book, or show, in and RPG? A: no, using them would upset continuity, using a made-up character is much more fun. Though, some can use real characters to further the plot, they can't be used as your personal player Uh...that will just keep people away. Some people like to play the main characters and since this is an ONLINE RP, it wont upset continuity. There are quite a few people who like to Role Play in alternate universes. Like for example, right now the EUC RPers are RPing in an AU where the Empire won the war, but the main characters were all killed and the Yuuzhan Vong invaded 5 years after Endor.
