MAIN CHARACTERS –
Anakin Skywalker – Youthful Jedi Knight. He was brought into the Jedi Order by Obi-Wan Kenobi. At this time the Jedi council considered him too old to become a Padawan – past a certain age a child is too old to be indoctrinated into Jedi beliefs. This was ignored, mostly due to Obi-Wan’s standing in the Jedi Council. He was trained by Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, whom came to be his greatest friend. Soon Anakin came to love a Naboo senator, Padme Amidala, whom had also taught him much of the galactic politics, republic history, and the renowned injustice of the Jedi order.
Obi-Wan Kenobi – Middle Aged Jedi Master. Raised from childhood to be a Jedi, he was once the Padawan of Qui-Gon before the latter was excommunicated. Due to him being taught by the more progressive Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan came to be more progressive also. Unlike most Jedi, Obi-Wan was compassionate and understanding. This also helped Anakin’s journey from the Order’s teachings.
Padme Amidala – Young Naboo Senator. The youthful, beautiful, and intelligent Padme Amidala was a Galactic senator hailing from Naboo. She is extremely passionate about her views. She is an egalitarian whom understands that both sides of a war will be hurt. Her main motivations are; disbanding and freeing the Republic “Clone Army”, which she thinks of as slavery, and ending the war diplomatically.
Count Qui-Gon Jinn / Darth Clemence – Aged Sith Lord, ex Jedi Master. The merciful and progressive Jedi and Sith lord Darth Clemence – named for his merciful nature – born named Qui-Gon Jinn, was a Count of the House of Jinn on Serenno. He was abducted as a child by the Jedi order, and, during his thirties – whilst training Obi-Wan – he decided to leave the Order and return to his home. He became Count and eventually joined the Sith order. He is a great force user and great swordsman. His lightsabre and armour are unlike that of the Jedi and Sith, instead his gear takes great influence from his ancestors. For example, his sabre hilt is extra-long and has a cross guard.
