Maxims "Max" Tionson

Excerpt · Biography · Personality · Skills and abilities · Miscellaneous

Max is a Jedi - or at least he likes to think he is. Old before his time and now perilously close to middle age, Max takes solace in the works he has done and seeks to do more in the future so that when he joins the Force he can do so without a hint of shame. Though he accepts his eventual passing as inevitable, Max is still very keen on keeping himself alive to see the Jedi help people across the Galaxy find, and maintain, true peace.

Biography


Max was born on Lianna, a planet within the Tion cluster, that saw some of the most traffic in that area of space. His mother and father were simply traders without very little remarkable about them save for their tendency to give to deserving charities whenever they gathered any significant amount of credits. His father explained to Max, when he asked why they did this, that whenever the Galaxy gave you a bounty it was your duty to share that bounty with others.

Taking this to heart, Max enrolled in the academy for the local police forces and pushed himself hard to become a police officer his parents could be proud of. Unfortunately the Tion cluster is closely controlled by the Hutts, who issued kickbacks and the like to the police forces in the area on a regular basis. When Max found one of these deals in progress he flipped out and accidentally used the Force to push the Hutt's agent out of a window.

Distraught and with a target on his back, Max enlisted the aid of some forensic analyst friends he had made and faked his own death and assumed a new identity - "Tionson" is an assumed surname that has, over the years, taken the place of his "real" surname even within his own mind. He instead found himself right where the Force wanted him to be and he instead began on his path to become a Jedi.

Finding himself meeting the Jedi Order at an older age than most, Max trained with the Jedi Order with people both older and younger than himself. He found it fun, he found it relaxing and he found it oh so very fulfilling in it's own way. Taking the teachings to heart, Max was a padawan for a relatively short time before becoming a Jedi Knight. Upon reaching the rank of Knight, Max bid farewell to his friends and allies in the Order as a whole and set out into the Galaxy in order to try his best to spread some good.

Since then he has dedicated himself to continuing to use the Light while also focusing his other skills, tracking down lost souls and either making sure their killers faced some form of justice or rescuing them. Those who were Force sensitive he would give a soft-touch recruitment speech but he respected the decisions of those he aided and didn't push hard.

Currently he resides on Nar Shaddaa, doing his best to bring some hope to the people who can't afford to simply leave the smuggler's moon and start a new life somewhere else.

Personality

Max is a very cautious man and always has been - this has lent itself well to Jedi training as he has a temperament that suits waiting and reacting to the Force itself. He wants to help others and is willing to put himself in harms way to see them safe and happy in their lives - he has taken his parents' teachings to heart and focuses his efforts on helping people with the bounty he was given, the bounty in this case being the Force itself.

Dry in his sense of humor, Max tries not to let himself ever get to the stage where he will hurt someone's feelings but can sometimes go a little bit far in the pursuit of a good joke, which is perhaps one of his biggest vices. He is always, however, quick with an apology.

Skills and abilities

Gentleman and a Scholar - He is capable of solving problems in a logical manner while still being very capable of assisting with more emotional issues. His skills include a couple languages, basic computer hacking and knowledge of laws across many sectors of the Galaxy.

Non-Lethal Specialist - Max will always aim to incapacitate rather than kill and this has led to learning to be proficient in stun blasters, stun batons and unarmed take downs. He also has a knack for using a staff in combat but that is purely as a by-product of his lightsaber style of choice.

Focused Force User - His use of the Force mainly focuses on avoiding damage to himself, his allies and giving his allies assistance when possible. While he is capable of offensive uses of the Force, he prefers to use non-combative uses instead as a healer and support fighter.

Saberstaff User - Although capable of combat with a single-bladed lightsaber, Max prefers to use the saberstaff for the additional blaster-stopping (and blade-stopping) capabilities. He mainly uses an adapted form 3 (Soresu) in combat.



Possessions include;


Scars/Damage;
  • Empty left eye socket - Covered with eye-patch unless otherwise stated
  • Deep scar from left eye to left ear
  • Upper half of left ear missing

Hey there @Nefieslab, character looks pretty good for the most part. The only line I saw an issue with is that he came later than most to the Jedi. As the new Jedi Order accepts students from all ages and walks of life that wouldn't have any bearing. The remaining bit of the sentence about training with people younger and older would probably be the better place to start.

Other than that you are also notably missing much of anything related to actual skills in the skills and abilities section. What you have there is more personality than anything else.

Good points!

I've changed the skills and abilities section entirely in line with this but I've kept the first part if that's alright? It's more that he feels like he came to the Jedi late rather than it actually being true
