Otiose Desideratum

Otiose Desideratum by sweetfennel, on Flickr

Otiose Desideratum was one of the few non-clone conscripts in the Empire. A promising young engineer and industrial designer, he was offered an opportunity to train with, and serve in, the Empire Advanced Engineering Unit (EAEU). Having grown up on a small, tropical moon, Otiose wasn't affected by the rebellion; in fact, he believed wholeheartedly in the Empire, to which he credited his happy, affluent upbringing. Proudly, he accepted the Empire's invitation.

His elation was soon quelled when Otiose learned that he would need to move a considerable distance away from his family—with little chance of returning. Since his race has a deep-rooted need to be near family, he declined the offer rather than abandon them. Seizing an opportunity to take advantage of the situation, his recruiter offered to relocate his family, which finally convinced Otiose to join.

Shortly after his EAEU apprenticeship started, Otiose discovered why his family was brought with him; they were forced into indentured servitude—baggagemen to EAEU officers and handmaidens to their families. This was the first time Otiose saw that the Empire was not as idyllic as he once thought.

After completing his apprenticeship, and as part of some internal changes made by the Empire after the Battle of Yavin, Otiose Desideratum was transferred to a Star Destroyer to observe different divisions within the Empire, with orders to improve equipment and processes. Having his family accompany him this time was not an option, as his superiors had recently become somewhat inflexible.

His Star Destroyer soon joined an ad hoc force hastily assembled to assail a newly discovered rebel base on a far-flung ball of ice called Hoth. This was the first opportunity for Otiose to see combat operations, as he dearly hoped to follow his passion and move into military research and development. More importantly, though, a post in the covert system that housed Empire Mil.R&D would allow him the influence to free his family from subjugation and the financial means to settle them on a stable planet.

In the hours before the military operation, Otiose moved freely throughout the Star Destroyer trying to decide from which vehicle to observe the battle. When the zero hour came, he settled himself into what he believed would be the safest place on the surface of Hoth—an AT-AT.

During the battle, his AT-AT was one of many crippled by the rebels' tow cables; fortunately his AT-AT pilot was able to stop before toppling. Despite having little combat training, and even less combat experience, Otiose volunteered to exit the AT-AT in the middle of the battle and attempt to disentangle the legs. He was successful; however, the cable was under considerable strain and, once cut, whipped around the AT-AT's legs and knocked him to the ground.

When Otiose awoke, he found himself in a small cave surrounded by a handful of rebel soldiers. They had all been injured during the battle and left behind during the rebellion's hasty retreat. These rebels, knowing they were all stuck in the same situation, disregarded which uniform Otiose wore, and provided him with life-saving shelter and medical care. The one-armed Wampa carcass they found in that cave sustained them until a small rebel ship, tasked with looking for survivors, found them a week later.

Otiose spent that week quietly expecting Empire forces to comb the planet looking for survivors. As days passed with no sign of Empire Search & Rescue, the events since leaving his home moon echoed more frequently in his head. By the time he was taken off Hoth, he was thoroughly disillusioned with the Empire. How could they want him so badly, yet make no effort to find him?

Otiose knew, even if he wanted, he could not rejoin the Empire. His only chance to reunite with his family was to join the rebellion—to use what the Empire taught him, against the Empire.

Now he is a decorated officer in the rebellion. Using his insider's knowledge, he occasionally assists intelligence officers and consults on battle strategies. His main job, however, is military research and development for the rebellion, where he happily designs new military vehicles—including building and test piloting his own prototypes.

So I see no unofficial parts. What if my only unofficial part is a BA or BF blaster for my minifig? Will that still result in a DQ?

Absolutely. "No unofficial parts" means no unofficial parts.

Jido Obriss by Fettman317, on Flickr

Overheard at an outer rim cantina:

"Jido Obriss?...Yea I know 'em. Scum! Used to be the best racer in the outer rim. Got in too deep with the Hutts though...his race winnings couldn't pay off that debt. Turned to smuggling then bounty hunting last I heard. Haven't seen 'em round these parts in months. Good riddance he brings nothing but trouble. What you Imperial boys after him for anyways?"

Alphabet fighters by legoguy 37, on Flickr

I was born on a remote "ship farm" as my parents used to call it. They built and designed ships for clients who payed enough. Unfortunately when my parents died I alone could not afford to live on my own so I took any jobs I could get. A separatist recruiter came to my planet and offered a good sum to take part in an assassination plot. I told them I was a skilled pilot so I was the one who dive bombed a senate guard legion. I managed to kill most of them but got my arm taken off in the process. I had never killed a man before It felt so... bad. My name, Nero Lattius (everyone calls me Nero) means new life. I guess thats about what I got. Several years later I got a message from the newly formed rebellion asking me to be a test pilot for some of there new fangled letter themed starships. I, wanting to undo my wrongdoing, signed up. Here I will be taking a log of how the starships turn out. Which ones work and which ones don't. I actually thinking of designing some of my own ships...

Captain Thunder

Arcturus "Axel" Thunder was a renowned fighter captain of the old militia. Though crafty and inventive as a fighter, his real recognition came as a skilled mechanic, famed for an incident where, faced with a malfunctioning R2 unit and a damaged engine nacelle, he broke into the engine units during combat and patched it together with spare metal.

He was discharged from the military somewhere around the turn of the century, reportedly being unhappy with new updates and set regulations. His whereabouts since then have been unknown, though it was rumoured he owned a junkyard somewhere on the outer limits.

His return over a decade after his discharge has caused a bit of a stir, especially after his announcement that he would be participating in the elite Galaxy Class Tournament. No one quite knows his intents in taking part, but those who knew the captain in his fighting days say they're sure of a deeper plan hatching underneath that battle-worn helmet.

-------------------

Looking forward to the contest. Should be a fun challenge.

Rebel Rook by RΟΟK, on Flickr

Classic Star Wars Style Rebel with Hoth Gear (Tauntaun not included in this image.)
Human Male, nothing interesting other than good marksman and excellent pilot. Nowhere near Jedi abilities but once in while he gets lucky and you might think he was. Served in Rebel Alliance through out the war and was present during the battle of Hoth. He was promoted to General after the fall of the Empire and was presumed to have died in battle against Grand Admiral Thrawn, yet no body was ever found.

Ah, what the heck, why not? I'll throw my hat in the ring.

The Nameless One by CloneEmperor, on Flickr

Known simply as "The Nameless One", this mysterious pilot only shows up when there is a conflict that pique's his interest. Wearing an Imperial pilot's uniform, one may think he is an Imperial agent, but his odd choice of weapon belies that supposition.

Flying for neither the Empire nor the Rebellion, some speculate that he is sponsored by corporate interests. Some even believe that he is a Jedi come out of hiding, even though his apparent age and ruthless tactics would disagree with that belief. The only thing truly known about him is his piloting skills; as soon as he enters a battlefield, regardless of the ship he is in, his opponents try to find somewhere else to be as soon as possible.

Ryler Bead
Ryler has spent his whole life on Nal Hutta’s largest moon, Nar Shaddaa. He comes from a long line of star ship mechanics. From early on,, he has been building and modifying anything he can get his hands on. Rylar now runs one of the busiest starship maintenance bays on Nar Shaddaa. When he isn’t busy doing a hard days work, Rylar also dabbles in the repossession of ships for one of the leading Hutt families on Nal Hutta. Always up for a fight, Rylar has a 100% success rate when repossessing ships and will stop at nothing to see that streak continue.

As long as you don't plan to swap those torsos when you have him pilot I'll allow it, but I want to avoid superfluous elements in the pilot shots because when I crop and shrink them down for the brackets they'll be harder to identify. Plus I thought it might be a droid at first, which would be a no go.

Keep this in mind:
as I previously wrote:weapons/accessories can be stored while piloting. Also hair and headgear can be swapped for helmets as needed. They can't change clothes each round though, it has to be the same figure throughout the contest.

DeathStalker Joe :shock:

DeathStalker is his pod racer name due by his uncommon way to race defying death in every corner. Unfortunatelly during one race he failed to detour and crashed on the principal cabin killing the Senator's wife with one of his pod engines. He was condemned to death but escaped killing the guardians. After he left his planet he passed many years hidden but now, aged and with different abilities he work as a cargo pilot doing dirty jobs from all the galaxy.

E'Gret by crazybirdman, on Flickr

E'gret is a former monk that was thrust into battle when his monastery was destroyed by the Empire during a battle in the ongoing war. Unfortunately, an Imperial officer convinced him that the Rebellion was responsible for the damage. The officer had the monastery rebuilt, so E'Gret fights on what many people believe to be the 'wrong side' of this galactic conflict.
His meditation and calm center make him a great fighter, but he still only attacks when necessary. When will the fighting be over so he can get back to his search for truth? And will that quest lead him to find out the truth about the destruction of him home?
