    Im just curious about this since I hear that tons of ppl that play Star Wars Galaxies say that their char's are related to Luke or Han or something along those lines. And dont worry, im not gonna start makin fun of ppl who make chars like that cuz that's a lame thing to do.

    I did make a d20 character named guias gyn, and at one point he does have to explain that he isn't related to qui-gon jin.

    for a laugh while i was still playing galaxys, i created a Mon Cal female medic named Cilghal,

    anyhow, when i created them i had shedloads of messages in my in-game mail, which i shouldnt have had, and 70000 credits :cool:

    i also saw a danni quee running around....

    i thought of creating a bloodline similar to the halcyon one where there's a weakness of some sort, and an affinity for something else, but i didn't bother yet

    We played a Jedi campaign that started out just before TPM, then we got "transported" into the time of ANH. We took on the training of Luke, and the events unfolded rather differently than the films.

    I found out that my character was Shmi's father! Hence I was Anakin's grandfather and Luke and Leia's great grandfather. Interesting plot twist.

    In my old campaign, my namesake NPC's backstory established that he made a favorable impression on Qui-Gon Jinn, and might have become his apprentice had Qui-Gon not already accepted Xanatos as a Padawan. Not quite related directly, but fairly close in Jedi terms.

    Judro's apprentice Artems M'Dei went on to surpass Judro as a swordsman (adding a few levels of Jedi Weapon Master) and did some advanced study in lightsaber combat with Mace Windu and Master Dooku (before he left the Order), since Judro couldn't really teach him anything more.

    One of my players ran a Noble who was a distant cousin of the Organa family (by my approval, and not unreasonable since her homeworld was established as having originally been settled by Alderaanians).

    Another player, a Force Adept, might (according to some vague hints I dropped in-game) have been very, very, very distantly related (going back a couple hundred generations) to the Skywalkers. :)

    I think that's as close as we got.

    Oh, yeh--not really a relationship except by association of ideas, but there was also the renowned smuggler Widdmir Killian, who (in the TPM-AOTC timeframe) boasted at length that his ship, the Midnight Rambler, had made the Kessel Run in less than 14 parsecs--a feat he was sure would never be outdone. :D

    Well, I created an NPC for a Rise of the Empire Infinities campaign, that was the daughter of Grand Moff Tarkin. She's a Tech Specialist/Slicer, changed her name from Mian Tarkin to Kora Jade, and went into hiding. I intend on her being the mother of Mara Jade.

    Not related by blood; however, in our original (d6) campaign, there were originally THREE old friends on Tatooine...Luke, Bigs, and myself, Marlin Lazon! I fought in the battle of Yavin IV, just ilke old times, with Bigs and Luke...although I wound up on the far side of the Death Star in a different squadron. As a matter of fact, this game took place way back in the late 80's; several years later Luacsfilm relesed the Star Wars Specialdition, and you can finally hear the voices of myself and my commander in the radio chatter!

    Alas, the campaign turned away from most of the events of the movies, and it was not until after RotJ that I again met up with my old buddy Luke. We did manage to help pave the way for the battle of Endor, though.

    Now, of course, I'm playing the SWd20 game, and I've had to order to play in the jears leading up to the new Jedi order I've been re-conceived as the younger cousin of Biggs. Oh, well, at least I still get to hang out with Master Skywalker once in a while. Besides, I get to see old Luke more often in this system.
