Rather than hijack other threads every time this comes up, I'm gonna keep this thread as my official place for complaints about the ongoing whitewashing of the early Legacy Era. Just cracked open Abyss this evening, and as usual, the first thing I see: Ahri Raas - Keshiri male Ben Skywalker - human male Han Solo - human male Jagged Fel - human male Jaina Solo - human female Leia Organa Solo - human female Luke Skywalker - human male Olaris Rhea - human female Vestara Khai - human female Yuvar Xal - human male Aside from one near-human character (which means it officially beats Outcast in this area), the entire DP is human. And while it's not actually mentioned in the DP, meaning [link=http://forums.starwars.com/thread.jspa?threadID=222689&start=8955]it's officially not a problem[/link], they're not even multi-ethnic humans, just a bunch of white folks. Granted, I'm not certain at this point what Rhea and Xal look like, but I'm not exactly getting my hopes up. Why aren't Allston or Denning creating any new DP-worthy alien characters? Why aren't they working more extensively with the pre-existing ones? For that matter - is Cilghal, at the very least, really not deserving of a DP spot in either Outcast or Abyss? For that matter, why wasn't Lando in the DP for Outcast? And I know this next bit is hard to address in prose, but as long as I'm asking random diversity questions, where's the planet full of Japanese people in this galaxy? Indians? Persians? Inuits? White people are not the freaking "default" switch for this species. And humans shouldn't be. I like to ask people what they want out of Star Wars...for me, this isn't it.
