    "There's always going to be some lightning-in-a-bottle kid with a handful of credits who escapes this rock. That's not us. Men like us? We are the rock." - Old Tatooine Proverb, Anonymous.

    Glimpses in dreams. Those are the only things that Darrow can remember about his parents. Beyond that, the only life that he has known is of the uncaring binary suns and the coarse sands of Tatooine. His primary goal in life? Keep himself and his younger brother and sister, Owain and Elora, alive.

    Darrow never knew why his parents had dumped him and his siblings in Mos Eisley and never looked back. Growing up, he resented them for it, as well as the hard lives that they forced him and his siblings to live. A trio of Urchins looking out for each other, they stole, they thieved, and they pickpocketed anyone hadn't paid their 'Sand Tax' yet. Fighting with other orphan gangs working for more menacing thieves, avoiding the long arm of the Law, and taking what few moments of safety they had to be thankful for each other, Darrow and his siblings spent their childhood learning the art of The Scoundrel.

    At this developmental stage, Darrow, Owain, and Elora all showed a natural Force sensitivity that bonded them together. Shared dreams, precognitive visions of the other doing something foolish, and strange memories of one that became public knowledge for three- they were connected in a way that they couldn't understand. Naturally, being the more pragmatic of the trio, Darrow assumed that these happenings were commonplace with all siblings and were nothing to become too worried about. Dubbing the phenomenon as 'Sibling Sight', he used these strange dreams and visions to always stay one step ahead of the law, using their three minds to cover the blind spots that each of them had individually.

    One day, Darrow managed to get in over his head. After successfully pickpocketing a Mandalorian Bounty Hunter by the name of Coal Eyes, Darrow was beaten to within an inch of his life by the unforgiving man as punishment, taking the beating so as to spare his siblings any harm as his accomplices. Coal Eyes, realizing after the self-sacrafice that Darrow had done to spare his siblings any harm, was impressed. Looking back at the bleeding and broken tween, he saw the potential for a protege. Thus, Coal Eyes pointed a blaster at Darrow's head and offered him the chance to get off Tatooine and provide for his family as a novice Bounty Hunter, or to be killed and be spared a painful life of scavenging for scraps until the law caught up with him. With a choice caught between a blaster and a bad time, Darrow ultimately chose the latter, leaving Tatooine and his siblings behind and beginning his decade-long career as a Bounty Hunter.

    Coal Eyes proved to be a brutal, but effective, teacher for the young Darrow. Travelling across the Galaxy doing odd jobs for the Hutts and other criminal organizations, Darrow learned the time-honored skill of hunting others as prey. With natural talent for demolitions, slicing, and blaster fights, Darrow quickly shaped up to be every bit the deadly mercenary that his mentor was. The life of going to far-flung reaches of the galaxy, exploring wild space and the unknown regions for fleeing marks, and engaging in high-speed chases and dogfights- it all thrilled Darrow with adrenaline and a thirst for danger. Even Coal Eyes, the often-times abusive teacher, grew more caring and sympathetic to the young Darrow in time, affording him a greater deal of the job's payout as a sign of respect and fatherly-care.

    It was Blood Money that fed Owain and Elora back on Tatooine. It kept them fed, clothed, and living a comfortable life in a nicer part of Mos Eisley. For Darrow, this decade of adventure and swashbuckling thrills was one of the best times of his life. Yet, tragedy ultimately brought about the end of this prosperoud period.

    Elora, horrified over the years by her visions and dreams of Darrow's Bounty Hunting, had become increasingly uncomfortable with accepting her older brother's credits as the fuel for her and Owain's lives. Ever the idealist that her siblings weren't, and much more aware of the injustices that the Sith Empire was enforcing on the galaxy, Elora wanted nothing more than to dedicate her life to doing good and leaving a positive impact on others. This drive and need to wash her hands of her brother's 'savagery' and her own past thievery, led Elora to meet up with a Rebel recruier in Mos Eisley. Without telling Darrow or Owain, she joined the fledgeling Rebels, travelling to Dantooine in secret to be trained as a combat medic.

    Weeks later, these events finally became revealed to Darrow in a dream, a result of their shared bond. Shocked, angered, and confused, the now-adult Darrow left the company of Coal Eyes to travel home and investigate. When the Bounty Hunter had tracked down the recruiter who had brought his sister into the fold, he was left in disbelief that his visions had been true- that she had left him and all that he had done for her and her brother in favor of something so futile as joining a rebel group. Beating the recruiter and his allies to a pulp out of sheer anger, Darrow returned to his ship and entered hyperspace to drag Elora home...

    Only to arrive in the middle of the Sith destruction of Dantooine.

    All of the man's anger instantly transformed in shock, disbelief, and despair. His ship, a small fighter, was away from the Imperial scanners, and yet that did not prevent him from watching in acute detail as the Imperial Fleet launched volley after volley of orbital bombardment on the planet below. He wanted to start a dogfight with the fighters, to shoot down the guns attacking the helpless freighters- anything besides just sitting there and watching. Yet, all these grandiose ideas of acting as a one-man army remained solely in his head. For the next hour or so, Darrow was left petrified by fear, glued to his seat, mortified by the sight of the fleet annihilating the rebel headquarters far below on the planet.

    A loud scream nearly ruptured his ear drums, blood dripping from his nose and tear ducts, an unimaginable pain wracking through his body. Feeling an emptiness inside of him open up, Darrow knew at once, in his heart, that Elora was dead- killed in the midst of the bombardment. An emotional wreck, bleeding and crying simultaneously, and overcome by a mountainous shame and guilt, Darrow meekly turned tail and entered hyperspace, fleeing for his life.

    Upon returning to Mos Eisley, a second insurmountable pain echoed through his head. The feeling of emptiness in him expanded into a chasming absence. An absence of something he couldn't explain. Yet, upon returning home to find Owain fallen off their home's balcony, Darrow no longer felt human. Realizing that his sister's death scream had been heard by Owain while he was standing on the balcony and that he had accidentally fallen over and died in the street below, Darrow tried to reconcile with his failures. He had failed to keep Elora from dying in some pointless attempt to aid the Rebels, he had failed to do anything whatsoever to stop or impeded the attack on Dantooine, and he had failed by not being able to comfort his brother when he was vulnerable.

    Guilt and shame became Darrow's bedfellows as, for the next few years, he sought any way he could to try and fill the chasm of emptiness in his heart. Turning to spice, to death sticks, to women- to anything he could get his hands on, Darrow let himself fall into a deep and dark depression that he could not pull himself out of alone. Beyond any doubt, this hedonistic time of darkness was the lowest point of Darrow's life. Coal Eyes had succumbed to his age and illnesses, leaving Darrow so very, very alone.

    Yet, just as all seemed lost, a twist in fate- a twist in The Force, occurred.

    Two Jedi, sensing a pained but powerful presence in the Force, covertly tracked Darrow down to Manaan, where he had been holed up in for some time- having left Tatooine for good. Once there, the two cross-examined the Bounty Hunter, skeptical that he, of all people, was someone who could be so closely attuned to the force. Darrow, nihilistic from his time alone and in pained isolation, begrudgingly welcomed the guests out of curiosity. This begrudging acceptance, gradually, turned into morbid fascination. Talking about his life and his connection with his siblings, as well as his sometimes-precognitive dreams and visions, convinced the two beyond any reasonable doubt that Darrow had the foundations of a Jedi. Even if Darrow was not their 'perfect' fit for the Jedi archetype, neither could deny his prowess or connection to the Force- though they lamented their inability to recruit his siblings as well. Ultimately, knowing that if they did not recruit the man then some Dark Jedi or Sith would, the duo formally invited him to join the fledgling Galactic Alliance and become a Padawan of the Jedi Order.

    At first, Darrow picked up a shot glass and threw it at them. Ever the pragmatist, and having lost his sister and brother to a chain of events starting with the Alliance, he initially was incensed that the two would have the gall to come in and ask him to do such a thing. The wounds were still too fresh and too painful. Still, after this outburst, Darrow thought more on his sister's decision to join the Rebels on Dantooine, despite its futility in his eyes. Realizing the choice she'd made and that she had been stronger than he ever could in deciding to fight for a spark to ignite a rebellion, Darrow accepted that he had been blind to what truly mattered in life: the people in it. She had wanted to fight for something bigger than herself no matter how impossible it seemed, while he had tried to force her and his perfect world of his to be small and encompass only the three of them in it. Acknowledging his failure, but refusing to let it define him any more, Darrow decided to commit himself to carrying on Elora and Owain's legacy by fighting for something bigger than himself: the Galactic Alliance.

    With that resolution, Darrow accepted the offer, abandoning his life as a Bounty Hunter and the darkness that had clung to him for so long now. He was no longer Darrow of Tatooine, he was now Darrow: Jedi.

    Aloof. That is the word best used to describe Darrow's overall personality and relationship to others. Having lived a relatively isolated life constantly traveling across the galaxy for bounty hunting work, Darrow's life has always been one of self-reliance and independence. Now, learning the necessary attributes to be a Jedi, and to try and turn a new leaf, much of that former lifestyle is coming into conflict with the present. Thus, while he will certainly be amicable to strangers or fellow Jedi, he's always one of the first to leave a crowded party in favor of peace and quiet. He is prone to train alone, to study alone, and to think alone- let alone go on missions alone when he can.

    After a few encounters however, or after sensing a kindred spirit or natural chemistry, Darrow is quick to lower his guard and speak more plainly and openly with those he trusts. He enjoys playing music and songs he listened to growing up in the markets of Mos Eisley, finding ways to unwind, or sparring with those that he feels are up to the challenge. Laughter, smiles, and even some joking remarks or lighthearted banter can quickly fill the air between him and another. Darrow, while enjoying such company, can only take small to moderate sized doses of it before he begins to feel mentally fatigued and looks for a way to leave a social setting and go 'recharge' his batteries in privacy. He is a quiet introvert who's not afraid to feign extroverted'ness when the time is right, or with the right people.

    Much of the foundation for Darrow's personality stems form an acute sense of guilt and shame that gnaws away at him in his most private of moments. Anger at himself for his cowardice in fleeing the destruction of Dantooine is a familiar feeling. Because of this volatile cocktail, and of feeling emotions on a deep level, Darrow has always been aware since his first meeting with the Jedi that he could easily fall into a path leading to the Dark Side. Thankfully, Darrow is self-aware of his own emotions, and although he struggles to keep himself from feeling them, is able to acknowledge them and keep them from clouding his mind like any other Jedi. This weakness when combined with his past combative experience an skill, ultimately, proved to be Darrow's strength, fueling him and granting him a natural talent and mastery over Form VII, though he does possess skill in other forms, most notably Forms III and V.

    As a born and bred Bounty Hunter, Darrow is a rather pragmatic individual. Outside of speaking on the Force or Jedi Affairs, he tends to be blunt, forward thinking, and view problems with a high degree of inductive reasoning. More likely to say a few words that end up speaking a great deal rather than actually speaking a great deal, Darrow's battle hardened years as a hunter have left him with a somewhat stoic demeanor to those who do not know him well. A crack shot with a blaster or rifle, at home with a blade in his hand, and used to using al manner of explosives and gadgets, Darrow knows the ins-and-outs of tracking a high priority target with barely any trail to speak of, as well as go toe to toe with those who arguably are above his weight class through sheer ingenuity. Both as a Hunter and as a Jedi, Darrow is in peak physical condition, with all the strength and stamina to stay in the fight, and all the dexterity and nimbleness to take advantage of his naturally quick-thinking mind.

    One of the few places that Darrow feels most at-home in is in the cockpit of a fighter, watching the streaks of hyperspace pass him by. A crack fighter pilot even without the force, and with an insatiable curiosity, Darrow thrives off of exploring the uexplored- or seeing what'll be waiting for him once he jumps just oooooone sector over in Wild Space. While certainly not a born-and-bred pilot like others, Darrow has been able to think quickly enough to keep up with some of the best of them. This relaxed state can affect his personality in subtle ways, such as using slang more casually, acting more talkative, or not wanting to go back to base and instead try and explore an uncharted asteroid field.

    Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, is Darrow's relationship to the Force. Since birth, he has had a strong connection that was shared by his siblings for all their lives. To Darrow, the Force is the thing that fills the sense of emptiness he came to know once his younger siblings were severed from him by their deaths. He often spends an uncharacteristic amount of time meditating, communing with the light side of the force, as it gives him a great deal of peace that he cannot find anywhere else. Although still training, his control over the Force is something that feels already second-nature to him, whether through an internal application or external. As a Padawan, Darrow still is eager to learn much more, comforted and eager to continue his search for redemption as a warrior for the light side.

    Hey there @Chaotic Neutral just to let you know that you can't start off with Advanced Tech. I know the one you linked is in generic tech but just because something is considered generic doesn't mean it is easily available to everyone, specifically Advanced Tech (abbreviated as AT in many cases) You'll need to pick a different ship that is not AT.

    You can only start with one ship and one "terrestrial" vehicle so you can only have one Locust speeder bike, not two.

    Edit: Make sure you link anything that you are using. At first look I missed the PL10s which should have links to the writeup. But they are also AT as well and need to be acquired through the proper methods.

    Alrightly. As a Force sensitive and per tech rules, you aren't allowed to use armor functions. Just an FYI

    So, while sensing mentions and feelings is possible, maybe sharinng dreams. But the precog visions and the thing mentioned in the last sentences would be too much for a trained force user. Adjusting this shouldn't effect the over all character too much either.

    And as a starting character at Padawan/Acolyte you can only know one force form, and wouldn't be a master at it. You can be good with at it, but not a master of it.
