[This thread is Mod-approved] So, putting aside the debate over the exact identity of the Main Villain... what about their ideology? What will the antagonists be fighting for? I can see them going one of four routes... 1. The Destroyers... they want to kill as much life as they can, destroy as many worlds as they can... not even any interest in conquering or ruling, they just want the galaxy to burn, kill all life, and destroy the Force itself 2. The Gray Empire... "Jedi" and non-Jedi-military who serve a new Emperor who has NOT fallen to the dark side (basically a Jedi Empire... the Old Republic minus the Senate)... perhaps they even view the offspring and descendants of the Chosen One as some sort of "divine bloodline" with the right to rule the galaxy 3. The Liberator... an idealistic movement that wishes to liberate the galaxy and create something completely new, because the New Republic and New Jedi have the same flaws as the old ones, slavery still exists and droids are still treated as property, and the Liberator feels that Luke/Han/Leia have failed to fully take advantage of the Empire's fall... the Liberator is Force-trained but not Jedi or Sith and not a dark-sider, but she has no hesitation in bringing swift and bloody justice to those she has perceived to be benefitting from all the inequality and exploitation that still exists in the galaxy 4. The Philosopher-King of Utopia... an enlightened, seemingly-benevolent Sith Lord wants to rule the galaxy because only he/she can truly give them the best existence possible, even be able to give Eternal Life to the common people of the galaxy and Resurrect the dead back to life, to live in a galaxy of Peace and Plenty, a utopian paradise... you just need to accept this Sith Lord as the enlightened philosopher god-king of the galaxy Or perhaps some combination of the above Or maybe we'll have more than one group of antagonists too. (For those reasons, I'll make this a multiple-choice poll). What do you think?
