"I tell you this: though neither he nor they yet know it, he is the greatest of all the Jedi. Jacen Solo is the living Jedi dream. Even without the Force, he is more dangerous than you can possibly imagine." Vergere from Traitor. Hello to all my fellow Jacen Solo lovers. I?m fairly new to the NJO and the EU but after reading the book Traitor , I fell in love with this character. I was shocked to discover that he didn?t have his own thread on the Resource boards yet. A character as complex and interesting as Jacen deserves further exploration. I?m opening this thread in hopes of being able to learn and get a handle on his character before I even consider trying to write a fic with him. I know there are a lot of Beyond people around who admire and adore him also and I hope to learn from you all. This thread is a place to discuss Jacen and how the people in his life and his experiences helped him evolve into the Jedi he was at the end of The Unifying Force . It?s my hope that it catches on and down the road we can do challenges and maybe author interviews. It is not however a place to focus soley on the various ships out there. We will no doubt touch on his possible love interests but that isn?t where I want the main focus of this thread to be. I haven?t read the YJK books or some of the earlier NJO books. I know there is a large section of the Beyond people who despise this character. While I welcome you all to join in the discussions, I will ask you to please not indulge in character bashing here. If you have strong reasons for your dislike and wish to discuss them in a friendly manner without being disrespectful to those who do admire Jacen, you are more than welcome to join in. I encourage anyone who has ideas for topics and challenges to PM me. The more help I get the better. So welcome and please share what drew you to his character.
