I've come to notice that many people don't have a very good grip on writing Yuuzhan Vong and their associates. Meanwhile, other writers can really get inside the heads of characters such as Nen Yim, Tahiri Veila, Nom Anor, Onimi, Vergere, and their fellows. A lot of this is attention to detail while reading the NJO, but I think another aspect of it is dialogue and actions. For example, a Heretical Shaper like Nen Yim is going to react differently to something than a Scheming Politician like Nom Anor. A Jedi like Tahiri and a philospher like Vergere will present more reactions. What I'd like to do with this thread is dedicate each week to discussing the character traits of one major Yuuzhan Vong character and also create a place for authors to swap techniques for characterizing these undercredited characters. So, lets get started! Week of Febuary 13: Nom Anor and Yuuzhan Vong Basics Week of Febuary 19: Onimi Week of Febuary 26: Nen Yim Week Of March 6: Niriit and Shoon-Mi Esh Week of December 25: Warrior Appreciation Week! Starting on page three: general discussion. Coming soon: Index!!!
