    Some one else who liked Master Di? He's one of my favorite one shots as well. He fit my expectation of a Jedi's demeanor and attitude perfectly. The guy was a total hero willing to sacrifice everything just to make sure the Twi'lik's escaped. I wonder if it would have weakened "Supply Lines" had Di lived. He would have been a great, reoccurring Jedi OC.

    Krell was a cool character as well, he wasn't complex, just didn't have to be. He existed almost entirely to be as mean as hell to the clones to drive them to dissension because otherwise they'd walk through razor wire content to follow orders. His logic was to survive the slaughter he is sensing in his visions. But he was still a Jedi who had become jaded by the war, disenfranchised with the Jedi order, and a bigot. That's pretty interesting.

    Miraj should count. Rewatched the Slave arc last night. What a complex character she is. Its so totally messed up when the Twi'lik slave commits suicide and she has pretty much no reaction. Her belief in the legitimacy of slavery is brutal. Yet she sticks to this belief. She calls into the question the service of the Jedi in the republic. Her death is sad one, pretty much having become a slave to Dooku.

    My favorite one shot remains Cut Lawquane. I have a soft spot for dad characters but more than that he is I feel one of the most complex and interesting characters in all of TCW. I love his optimism. He reminds me of ex-soldiers I know personally, even within my own family. He is the real 'not just another number'. He wanted better than to be slaughtered in a war he was created for. So, Cut ran. He loves his adopted family, he proves in the ultimate way how he'd go back to war for them and lay down his life in an instant to protect them by about doing just that. But Cut remains guilty about what he did. He left a big impression on Rex and changed his definition of a good soldier. I'm confident that Rex's speech to Dogma about being a good soldier and thinking for ones self, was really thinking back to his time with Cut.

    Di was one of the best Jedi of the series that was created for the show.

    Miraj was amazing. She was a fun character but I am dissapointed that it was not noted that she was part of the Separatist Council.

    Cut is one of the most interesting clones created for the show.

    What do you think TCW could have done with Di had he survived and do you think him surviving would have hurt "Supply Lines?"

    I'm not sure what they would have done if he survived, but I do think it would have hurt supply lines if he did. Even though he had limited screen time (and an unfortunate name) I think his last stand was one of the best of the show.

    He's definitely on my list of favorites. I wish I had remembered him before my original post. :p

    Could have done? I don't know.

    Would have done? They would have put him into the background of every shot on Coruscant and in the Jedi Temple, and perhaps as the occasional non-speaking hologram, doing nothing productive. Then Maul would perhaps kill him off in the opening reel of an episode and nobody would care, since despite many subsequent appearances, he'd still have zero development.

    They could have made him a nice new addition to the cast. It could have happened.

    This is what I think I'd like to have a little more faith in TCW than them simply not doing anything with him. TCW has done wonders with OCs before. -cough- Satine.

    They have done wonders but they have also FAILED very badly aka Savage or Steela and others.

    But I would love more OCs or secondary characters to get the love Satine gets.

    Point is I know TCW can create good OCs when they want to. Di himself proves this. They just kill most of them off way to quick. Savage didn't start off all that bad. I thought he was great in the Nightsisters arc. How dark and messed up was that? Then he just became this dude who follows Maul around and growls all the time. I get the monster thing, but come on...

    True. Di is livi...dead proof of that but still.

    Now Savage is proof of an OC that got ruined with lack of focus or aim from Lucas and the writers.

    Omg... Ima-Gun Di, his death was done so badly, it annoyed me so much because he could have easily jumped out from the circle of Droids and destroyed them all with a force push and a few swings of his lightsaber... He was such a good character and they could have done so much more with him!

    I need to make a new list. Probably with Savage Opress at the top instead of at the bottom. He looks awesome, and I like the whole id-driven thing.

    While I wouldn't put him at the top, I do think he's more dimensional than people give him credit for.

    TCW has proven that when a Jedi or Zabrak or Clone is surrounded by many B1 and B2 Battle droids - the DROIDS WIN!

    No, he is dead. Thorny is dead. We see all the clones around him die. He is dead.
    Every clone with such a weapons has bitten the dust... ;)

    I liked her as well; she was an interesting character. When they manage to give a sociopath a sad death and make us feel sympathetic about her & her fate you know that they have done the character well.

    Thorn does look awesome. Maybe this dude will break the cycle with the big guns. There needs to be a cheat to get this guy in GTA5.

    We will see... Maybe the chain of deaths of chaingun-wielders will end but maybe not. The odds look against him and usually clones that have been promoted before the Season starts, are usually the ones to die off.

    1. Chaingun clones dead:

    - Hevy
    - Buzz
    - Hardcase

    2. Promoted clones dead:

    - Colt
    - Keeli

    And Thorn falls in both categories.

    Wasn't there a clone in the Geonosis arc with a chaingun that didn't die? (At least not on screen.) :p

    There was another on in "Darkness on Umbara' who had a chaingun and didn't die. Honestly I'm hoping between Gregor and Thorn one of the two can break the habit and not die. How about a heroic save where the guy gets out alive?

    It would be nice to break the cycle. They don't have to kill off everyone to make it dramatic.

    I'm thinking Gregor is the more likely of the two to come out alive.
