What is your character's motivation?

Jedi Guardian (LS) - Save the galaxy and then retire to a simple, happy life of training Jedi apprentices with Kira for the rest of his days.

Jedi Sage (Neutral leaning Light) - Win the war for the Republic, try to blot the Sith out of existence. A bit overzealous.

Sith Marauder (DS) - Serve the Empire at least somewhat honorably. Doesn't really have much in the way of aspirations, he's the muscle.

Sith Assassin (DS) - Unlimited poooooooowwwwwwwerrrrrr!!!!!

Sniper (Semi-LS) - Rescue the Empire from itself and piss off as many Sith as possible.

Mercenary (Neutral) - Make tons and tons of money. And piss off as many Sith as possible.

First two characters sadly were just me getting lightside points without thinking, my next character a smuggler was interested in taking power from the big guys and giving it to the little guy, robin hood with a gun. Basically I just helped the little guy and ****ed over the empire/republic whenever I could get away with it.

Marauder now is going to be all about power for himself, but theres a hint of light in him - hes only level 17 now who knows, he could be redeemed .

LS(ish) Assaisin; Personal POWER, and getting laid.

LS (ish) Marauder; Ruling the Empire as an open Revanite.

LS (ish) Sentinel; Destroying the Empire, and getting laid (takes after dad, the Assasin).

N Mercenary; $$$$$$$$$$$$, and getting laid (also takes after dad, the Assasin).

DS (ish) Shadow; Destroying the Empire, and ruling the Republic.

LS (full) Vanguard; Destroying the Empire.
I hate violence. I'm just really, really prepared for Peace.

My main character, a Sith Warrior - Self-preservation at all cost, he knows that the Empire is unforgiving to the foolish and the weak. Climbing the heriarchy ladder as high as possible, with all means necessary. At the same time, keeping his sanity along with his life, not allowing the Dark Side to twist him completely. And, finally, to protect Vette from any harm and to make her happy (that helps him a lot with keeping the Dark Side from overwhelming him).

My main alt (heh), a Smuggler- she's in it for the money. She doesn't care about the political interests of the Republic, all she wants is to get disgustingly rich. Also, survival at all cost.

My Sith Inquisitor - to amass power and to crush people. He's a predator at heart, and unlike my SW, he's fully immersed in the Dark Side, revelling in evil.

My Jedi Knight - to stop the Sith from ravaging the Galaxy. To be a good Jedi and keep the order's ideals and morals.

My Imperial Agent - to be a faithful and useful servant to the Empire. She's a patriot at heart, really, the only one from my Imperial characters.

I haven't played with the Jedi Consular, the Trooper and the Bounty Hunter at all, so can't say.

For my (dark greyish) Assassin, she want's to serve the Empire, learn all sorts of knowledge and secrets, and pretty much ruin the the Jedi's/Republic's day. To this end she always makes decisions that would improve the Empire's chances, compromise the Republic, or both at the same time! She also keeps promise to those who have helped her.

She's also a matchmaker! (...stupid Nomar Organa)

My Sentinel is your regular, run of the mill, goodie-two-shoes.

My main character is an LS Chiss BH merc, she was originally in it for fame and fortune but after being elevated into the Mandalorians and romancing Torian she became more about Honor and testing ones limits to prove she is the best. From an RP perspective I actually play her as a kind of ex-doctor who lost her license due to a spice addiction and a propensity for concocting experimental adrenals without approval, her craft skill is Biochemist so when asked I say that I'm a chemist by trade.

Agent: to begin to manipulate the empire so that the sith are not in control (apart from the emperor) he sees sith as a danger to the continued existence of the empire with their excessive power plays that waste thousands of life’s. By gathering allies he in both the military and like minded sith he hope to see a new empire (slimier to malgus idea but one still loyal to the emperor)

My main, sith sorcerer, is a selfish son of a murglak who is mainly concerned about personal gain, power and secure position. Also he greatly values exploring dark side mysteries because they invariably lead to greater power. He is not that dedicated to the wellbeing of the empire, thats just a job, but he is dedicated to the dark side.

My bounty hunter right now just does what comes naturally. He started out all blue-eyed and bushy-tailed looking for fame and fortune, and as the story progressed things started going south and the illusion shattered. He ended up being a fugitive in the eyes of most of the galaxy, so now he does what he must just to survive and for the good of his crew. Serving empires interests because they are one of the few willing to deal with him and pay big bucks.

My Gray Bounty Hunter, Xarl, uses the Fett Code of Honor and is motivated by love of being a Bounty Hunter. He kills his targets if requested, and anyone who tries to stop him, but doesn't kill bystanders or those he hasn't been hired to kill. He never betrays a client and will not be swayed by any offers of rewards or begging or bribes to cease a hunt or to spare a target. He respects the Empire because it brings order and stability, whereas the Republic is rife with corruption and weakness, but he dislikes the excesses of the Sith (and after the story the Jedi as well). He is a Mandalorian and proud to be one, regarding them as the greatest culture in the galaxy for embodying everything he respects.

My LS Sith Sorc, Taldeer, is motivated by dislike of the Republic's corruption, the Jedi's arrogance and vendetta against the Empire, and by the desire to bring order to the galaxy. She dislikes the wanton cruelty and short-sighted views of many Sith like Thana Vesh as it brings nothing but personal pleasure to them at great cost to others. She intends to win the war against the Republic so that the Empire and the Sith people will not face extinction, and then to reorganize the Sith into a more temperant and pragmatic order. She does not forgive traitors though, and kills them without remorse.
The Valcoran Legacy (Red Eclipse Server): Xarl - Powertech, Ruhksana - Sorcerer, Uzas - Smuggler, Emmesh-Aiye - Marauder, Asaid - Agent.
