Ryder Blane was a Force-sensitive human male Sith cultist from Alsakan who numbered among the ranks of the Legionnaires in the Sith Eternal.

Biography

Ryder Blane was born on the Core World Alsakan to an upper-class family. As a child, Ryder never wanted for anything, instilling in him a strong sense of personal entitlement. He learned early in life that he was strong in the Force and, having inherited his father's sense of ambition, began studying the various traditions that practiced the Force across the galaxy. Ryder immediately dismissed any notion of joining the reborn Jedi Order on principle, finding them to be too pretentious for his tastes. However, his searches also turned up mentions of the Sith—thought long dead since the last of them, the late Emperor Palpatine, died on Exegol over a century prior—sparking a lifelong obsession with the cult.

Ryder eventually was enrolled at the Alsakan Academy, where he studied galactic history and religion. When the opportunity came, he volunteered to give one of his class reports on the Sith. Despite the reluctance of his instructor (the Sith were a sore subject in the Core), Ryder used the Academy's resources to deepen his research into the Sith and came out on the other side believing the cult wasn't dead. He had no conclusive evidence; but he believed the Sith's tendency to rebirth, either from the ranks of the Jedi Order or out of the dark reaches of the Unknown Regions, meant that some remnant of the cult must have survived Palpatine's demise.

During his presentation, Ryder's findings and assertions were challenged by another student: a personal rival of his named Cal Reach, whose family had a long history of Jedi lineage. Cal posited that the Sith could not possibly have survived due to the practice of the Rule of Two—of whom Palpatine was the last observer. Angered by what he perceived as a slight and an embarrassment in class, Ryder decided to go to the extreme. He would set off into the far reaches of the Outer Rim in search of the Sith and prove once and for all that they had survived, as he had argued.

For his classmates, this was the last sighting of Ryder. He took one of his parent's ships, vanished into the Outer Rim, and was never heard from again. But this was because Ryder's hunch was more than a hunch. As he had grown older, so too had the Force within him. He could sense something out there... lurking in the shadows of the galaxy, growing in power and darkness. Perhaps this was the Force calling to him, or perhaps it was an overactive imagination encouraged by wishful thinking. Either way, Ryder found the Sith Eternal waiting in the shadows at the edge of the galaxy, near the Unknown Regions, where he was captured, assessed, and eventually trained in the ways of the dark side. By the time Ryder returned to the known galaxy... he was no longer the man who had left.

Personality and traits

Ryder Blane is a tall and toned human man with a pale complexion, bright blue eyes, and curly blonde hair. Owing to a fanatical fixation on the late Sith Lord, Darth Vader, he wears Sith robes that heavily reference an inversion of Anakin Skywalker's Jedi robes. His hooded under-robes are black and he wears a black, leather vest over the top. Black and silver plates, which heavily resemble Darth Vader's pauldron, rest on his shoulders and across his upper chest. He also wears black gloves and a black kama held on by a utility belt, with similarly colored pants and boots.

Though the Sith have been dead for a century, Ryder is the embodiment of their philosophy. He is motivated only by those things that will directly benefit him, or will contribute to the growth of his personal power, and has little to no concern for the lives that are destroyed in the process. He hungers for power above all else, despises embarrassment and weakness (both in himself and others), and strives to become strong enough where neither affect him any longer.

Ryder has a short patience and is easy to anger. However, his anger is not as explosive as some of his Sith predecessors. Instead, it simmers and grows beneath the surface—to be used as a weapon in combat, rather than to be theatrical. He also lacks a typical human conscious. Killing leaves him feeling nothing and he will happily force a life to expire if it means that a loose end is tied or an experiment of his achieves success. That said, he is not an indiscriminate killer and is not without loyalty. He will show loyalty to those that prove useful to him and only kills when necessary.

Powers and abilities

Ryder is a human male who was born with a powerful connection to the Force and is trained in all of its most generic uses and techniques, such as telekinesis. He is deeply connected with the dark side and is able to use his anger and raw emotions to enhance his connection to the Force even further—permitting him to strangle enemies telekinetically or even project lightning from his fingertips. He is also a skilled swordsman and can competently wield a lightsaber in battle against other Force-sensitives, like the rival Jedi Order.

Additionally, his greatest talent is as a TIE pilot and he is trained specifically to pilot the formidable TIE/D Defender starfighter bomber. His Force-enhanced reflexes and intuition make him more deadly in the air than he is on the ground and more effective as a TIE pilot than most non-Force sensitive pilots.

Equipment

— Single-bladed lightsaber (crimson)
A180 modular blaster, 1 spare power pack
Jedi utility belt (and its attached load-out)
— Comlink
— Datapad
TIE/D Defender fighter bomber

Hi, Malon. In this current moment, the SE don't have stormtroopers or anything similar. Things have changed slightly since the beginning of the timeline, but they are still a cult with little in the way of assets. You may keep the armor, but some major changes would need to be made to your biography given this information. You are welcome to try and make your legion a thing through role play.

I know it may take some time to make these revisions, given the base of this character was centered around his life as a trooper so I can either keep it here under review or move it to the archives for you. Please tag me to let me know, or if you have any questions about this decision. Thanks!

Nah, it shouldn't take me very long to make changes. The stormtrooper details are all superficial and I can easily switch them out for something just as generic. I'll have changes done by Friday, so you can leave it here. Thank you for the feedback!

@MatureContentWarningx -- Couldn't find an appropriate substitute for his trooper backstory, so I decided to take your advice and work him towards the trooper route. So I rewrote him to be a more generic SE. Hope this works!
