PostSubject: Wilco Jolom - Jedi Order   Wed Nov 02, 2011 10:30 pm

*Name: Wilco Jolom

*Species: Nautolan

*Gender: Male

*Age: 35

*Height: 1.82m

*Weight: 73kg

*Home World: Glee Anselm

*Appearance:

*Personality: Wilco could be considered a perfectionist, believing everything has a place and should be in it's place. He is also quiet, unless there is something important to say and anything said will have been thought about for quite some time. However, on the battlefield, he relies on his power in the force as well as the power in his body to overcome any obstacle. He is reliable and compassionate, believing no one has strayed to far from redemption.

Special Skills:
- Exceptional olfactory and pheromone-sensing abilities
- His tendrils detect the emotions of others, ability increased in water
- Water breathing
- Low Light Vision
- Technician
- Slicing

Weapons:

Ship: N/A, currently

*Current Rank:

*Job Specialization:
- Technician
- Slicer

*Background: Wilco was only four years of age when he could remember the first things about the war. He could remember clips of his parents talking about the Mandalorian wars and the current state of things. He could also remember tales of a criminal by the name of Dossa, who had joined the Sith in the Jedi Civil war. All of these things were probably why his parents made the decision. Soon after he had become six years of age, the young Jolom child followed one of the Fisto children to the Jedi temple, off planet to begin training.

For years Wilco had pushed himself, trying to be the best in his class in both lightsaber combat and force ability. He meditated often and distanced himself from the others, not because he despised them, but because the noise of the younglings playing after their lessons and in the mess hall distracted him. He used his free time to delve deeper into the force through meditation, though he was not looking for power, he was looking for understanding. To long had he heard tales of corruption that the Dark Side provided and those looking for it would be consumed.

Through his training he had become and excellent swordsman, emphasizing his abilities in the arts of Makashi, Ataru, and Niman. He also became very proficient in the use of the force. These things were his allies and as such gave him strength. Wilco had completed the Jedi Trials just a year before the treat was signed, and had taken to the path of the Jedi Sentinel. He had only been in a handful of conflicts with his master during the war, but he knew there would be many more conflicts to come. He has trained diligently these past years, taking on roles that the temple has asked of him.

We're planning on giving you lvl 6 from the beginning and it will directly affect your character's prowess. IC ranks like Master, Knight and so on are mostly irrelevant. But we'll need to discuss that too. So, would you prefer to be a young Jedi Knight or would you like to 'age' your char a bit to get Jedi Master? After all, it's very unlikely that Jedi would give the rank of Master to anyone in his early twenties Smile

I'll check everything once Force Powers and Physical Points are done. Nighthawk will probably have something to say too, but in the meantime you are certainly qualified for RPs.

Please explain how he remembers stuff from the Mandalorian Wars, which were about 300 years before the current time.

You might also want to lower the age since you're halfway through your lifetime already.

I would assume the mandalorian wars, and the history of Dossa, would make history to his people considering Dossa was a Nautolan and the Mandalorian wars were known on every planet.

And I had my age a bit younger, but Corvus thought it would be better to age my character for the rank of Jedi Master, but if you think it would be better to change it back, ill do so.

Maybe your grandparents or great grand parents. MAYBE.

Your race is pretty shortlived though, so I am kind of doubting anyone who is still alive would remember that or know any tales.

You can maybe say though that he went to the local library and got that info though.

Thats like saying my parents dont know about the revolutionary war... Something that big makes history and is known. The human race is also short lived, living about the same time as the Nautolans and yet we still now about our wars, our parents know about em, and grand parents now about them. Also if it deals with a war spanning hundreds of years, granted it was considered a separate war than the current conflict, but it definitely lead to the current events that were happening now. It was a big part of the galaxies history and considering that the mid rim planets were directly involved in the Mandalorian wars (Glee Anselm included in the mid rim planets) I would think it would make as much of an impact on history as our RL wars. However, I could say it was part of my schooling as well just to add depth to the bio. I've been meaning to add more to the bio anyway, and you have inspired me to give a little more depth to the beginning of it. Thanks bud Very Happy

First of all, humans often live a lot longer then 70 years old.

80 is pretty short for us, and more and more people are living to 100.

I don't remember the War of 1812 (roughly comparable to what your talking about). I would know nothing about it if I wasn't taught about it in school. Even then I remember very little of what I was taught. What I am arguing for is not him knowing about it, it's how he got the information.

If his parents learned about it through the galaxy holonet history, fair enough, I can see that. But actually remember it? Nope.

Very valid points haha. But yes, like i said, clips and pieces, tales of the war. much like a tale of the revolutionary war was told through the patriot movie, haha, im not trying to argue at all, but ya, I appreciate your constructive criticism. You've definitely helped me figure out how to fix my wording in my bio for this character. thanks a ton!
