So y'all might remember my post from a few weeks back asking for help with a droid creation for Saga Edition (You need to login to view this link
Well I got good news and bad news. Good news is that my DM has told us the setting: it's gonna take place during the dark times on Courscant, something is loose in the lower levels and the Empire has 'hired' us to look into it.
My second character is a Chistori named
Karthall Rayse who is looking to join the Antarian Rangers, a guild from the old EU dedicated to helping the Jedi.
The Chistori have a natural uncontrollable rage that leads most force users to the Darkside, as such they believe that the force is an evil corruption and they root out and kill any who display it. Karthall has to kill his younger brother when he started to display force sensitivity, only to find out the truth years later while working as a hired gun for the Separatists, the Rangers plot is akin to a redemtion ask for him.
Build is gonna be a modified unarmed tank setup I found, posting it below.

A pilot we're gonna build is an ex-specops Kobok assassin turned smuggler. Basically has gonna be our radio, directing us. Thou dm said I could control hun in certain aspecs.
My cohort wants to make a mechanic/medic squib, a straight support character, as well as a Clone Veteran rouge. The Clone in question inherited all of Jango's recessive genes so he has a unique face from his brothers (think Liquid from Metal Gear).
So the Bad news, my DM lost his job and is 2 months behind on rent, so it looks like the campaign is shelves for now until he gets some sort of stable income. It's unfortunate, and sadly not the first time it has happened.
However he did insist we try the Dawn of Defiance ready to run campaign, since it requires less free time to plan on his part, so I came up with two jedi I'd like some tips on.
My main is a Nelvaanian Jensaarai Hunter. Originally he was gonna be a straight up assassin, but I'll explain.
His backstory us that he was a child during the events of the 2D clone wars series where the Adult Males were mutated into weapons of war, and sadly it was added that the genetic defects were carried into the children conceived by the mutated.
The jedi promised to speak with the geneticists about purging their DNA of the experiments, but then order 66 happened. Eventually his tribe was targeted by slavers, when they were saved by a group of Jensaarai.
Seeing the force in my character, and explaining the state of affairs in the galaxy, they take him in as one of their own.
A neat factor of the jensaarai is that much like the lightsaber creation ceremony of the Jedi, the jensaarai have an armor ceremony. Customarily they design said suits of armor after creatures that represent them.
Going for a hunter build i decided on the Nexu, a stealthy hunter who ambushes their prey and engages in one to one battle, much like how I want to build my character. Also the irony of a wolf dressing as a cat is too good to pass up.
This one is the helmet design I like the most.
More designs, like the cape but we both agreed we need to deviate from the cubic swirls more.
Nexu for reference
Now the force power that I wanted him to revolve around was Phase, witch allows you to walk through walls. I thought that in tandem with his senses bonus to see around corners would be a good combo, sadly I also wanted him to be a jensaarai, witch isn't possible, but hard to do.
They mostly revolve around dueling and buffing armor, witch conflicts with a stealth build, so I decided to go with a hunter motif, a little stealth mixed with one on one combat.
However I do have one idea for an assassin, one that I honestly quite love.
Meet the Wraith of Felucia, a guerilla fighter Felucian. Stats include natural force sensitivity, with a free force blast power to star with, can breath under water, starts with a bone sword resistant to lightsabers, and can reroll stealth checks and keep the better result. Better use for an assassin I say.
Design inspiration was the Head of the Elite Kracken from Evolve and color scheme of ultimate Carnage from Ultimate Spiderman.
Was also gonna use starting money to buy a stealth cloak made from a Felucian Ripper pictured above.
Backstory is that his mother was Strong in the dark side, but before she was killed she gave birth to my character.
My character was mostly nice, but grew hateful of the other native felucians (pictred above, seriously i hate thise guys) cutting down more and more of the jungles of Felucia. He began using guerilla tatics to drive them off, becoming more and more like his mother, to the worry of his village.
Eventually his recklessness lead to the Empire discovering his village and burning it down, with him and his entire village captured as slaves. He would break out on Courscant and has been living in the West sea (an ocean wide water purifier) leading raids on Emperial owned factories.
Edit: Forgot to add, the Wraith aspect comes from his personality and abilities. Personality wise I was going for Spirit of Vengance, a high notion of right and wrong, but leaning towards vengeance rather than justice, witch he is trying to fix. Basically he's trying to overcome the legacy of his mother (using the rules from the Legacy Sourcebook).
Likewise ample use of phase and other mystic-esque powers to misdirect and spook his victims, to add credence to the Wraith title.
Well what do y'all think, any ideas, thoughts? This is my first time playing DnD so I might be over-thinking my worries to be honest, but I await tour input nevertheless.
