Hey, Jessnjam, you might wanna keep the part of your post that has actual Jedi Knight story bits under a spoiler tag. You don't want people to get spoiled with no warning, do you?
I'll edit later with my story.
Edit: Here's the one of my characters.
Name: Oridan Bendolo (His name is not
derived from Obi-Wan (Ben) Kenobi. The similarity is a coincidence, I swear!)
Hair color: Dark Brown
Eye color: Blue
Class: Jedi Guardian
Lightsaber Color: Blue
Planet of Origin: His family was originally from Alderaan, born on Coruscant.
Romance: Kira Carsen.
Padawans: Kira Carsen, Parthunir Pan (my twi'lek Shadow) and an unknown Chiss Consular (a planned character of mine)
Generations ago, Oridan's family, the Bendolos, were minor nobles on Alderaan. The family fell on hard times, and lost their noble status long before Oridan was born. The Bendolos would still cling to their old ideals of honor and integrity however, and many members of the family would serve in the republic military with distinction, all the way up to Oridan's own time, when his brother, Cid Bendolo, joined the Republic Special Forces.
Perhaps Oridan would have joined the republic military as well, had he not been found to be force-sensitive at a young age. As a padawan of the Jedi Order, he proved to be capable lightsaber duelist, and a bit of a recluse; Oridan would prefer to keep to himself when he could. He eventually ended his training on Tython and became a full knight of the Order.
There's more, but that's all I felt like writing right now. Ciao.
