    Good Points on all the background characters in the world don't make up for the lack of leads. I was using those as examples of the last time we got jedis comparable to Mace and to emphasize the point that alone Jan and John have outcreated Del Rey.

    But yes having some Leads is far and away the most important thing.

    Challenge: Quick, name a black human Corellian character!

    ...who's still alive. :p

    To be fair, depending on where you are in the timeline, everybody might be dead. Arfan Ramos.
  6. ESg Jedi Grand Master

    Isn't Vana from Alderaan?

    Apparently, House Thul is genetically black in TOR-era. They're also mildly evil, so make of that what you will. I've only done Alderaan as an imperial character, so I can't speak for Organa's ethnicity.

    It's rather unremarkable for Raynar to have a dark-skinned ancestor 4,000 years before he was born. Heck, going back 4,000 years and I'd be surprised to find anyone on earth who doesn't have at least a North African ancestor.
  10. The Loyal Imperial Census & Games General Manager

    Organa is...something. With TOR's rather limited faces, it can be hard to tell.
  11. QuentinGeorge Jedi Knight

    Whatever his ethnicity, that moustache is so pasted on.
  12. Philthy Jedi Master

    He appears to be Charles Bronson.
  13. The Loyal Imperial Census & Games General Manager

    Given that his name is Charle, I think you might just be on to something.
  14. THE_EVIL_CLIFFIE Jedi Master

    TOR is a bit better than lit here; an NPC's race appears to be truly random, to the point of having a black imperial officer on alderaan who talks like he's from manchester. I am not making this up.
  15. CooperTFN Jedi Grand Master

    There are black people in England, last I checked.
  16. The Loyal Imperial Census & Games General Manager

    More than a million, last time I checked.

    He's a 1970s porn director.

    That, or Lester Diamond.

    I don't get why people are always surprised that there are black English people...they've been in England way longer than white people have been in America.

    I suppose the media could be to blame...we are so used to(socially conditioned to) seeing non-diverse depictions of medieval and even modern England...
  19. Jeff_Ferguson Jedi Master

    Nice. It looks like they picked up on the fact that both Bail and Breha were played by Hispanic actors. I've always kinda wondered if Lucas figured that all Alderaanians were Spaniards. Diversity ho!
  20. QuentinGeorge Jedi Knight

    Rebecca Jackson Mendoza is half Filipino/half German Australian...the only thing "Hispanic" about her is her surname.
