What would be you in the universe, if SW was real?

A skinny nerd girl who sits on the holonet all day playing hutt-made games, joining the republic navy to help put myself through college, so that I could become a nurse.

Just like real life, but in space! Wow!

I feel like I would be the same person in the Star Wars Universe as I am in this universe. I think if you are good person in real life, you will not truly want to be a bad person in a different universe, unless you want us to imagine that we would have a different value system as well.

In real life, I have a service job like a lot of other people. In the Star Wars Universe, I would probably still be an ordinary worker. I can imagine myself working in a cantina as a mixologist, or maybe working as a manager in some kind of entertainment complex. If I was not in the service industry, I would like to work in a droid factory (just not the one on Balmorra!!!!) or in the Kuat Shipyards*

ConCube, if you're really looking for a sense of belonging you may be happiest seeking out people in the Star Wars Universe who are like you in real life. For example, if you're a musician on Earth, you should play music in the Star Wars Universe, too. If you're ambitious and entrepreneurial on Earth, then you'll probably start you own business in Star Wars. Another poster said she was a nurse in real life, and that she'd like to be a Jedi healer if she was a Star Wars character. She obviously cares a lot about people, so it's natural that she'd also care about others in the Star Wars Universe. Extraordinary people on Earth would probably be extraordinary people in another galaxy. Most of us would just be ordinary folks living our lives from day-to-day.

Now, let me tanswer your question another way. If I used my imagination to create a Star Wars character that was completely different than me, and had a different value system, I would be a Dark Jedi. For example, has anybody watched "Versus: The Way to Shadow" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hChZObLRPRc). I think I would be a character like Darius: not an evil person, but one who is very powerful with the Force, and is able to tap into both the Light and Dark sides. I would not want to be as tormented as the character in the film. I would want to be more at ease with myself and what I was doing. But I would not want to serve the Republic or the Sith Empire. I would probably find my own "Kaliyo" and travel the galaxy. I would hire myself out as some kind of Dark Jedi bounty hunter/private investigator, and make a living that way. I would be like "Jim Rockford," only I'd have a starship instead of a trailer, and I'd carry a saber and be able to use the Force. And I'd have a Rattataki girlfriend. But Mike Post would still write my theme song.

* Come to think of it, they're (we're?) fighting in the Kuat Shipyards, now, too!

I would probably be like Guss.... That guy is a truly magnificent bastard. He was able to bullsh*t his way into a fortune, get himself a subservient cult, and outfox the White Maw. Just... wow.

I think I'd be sort of Diplomat, most likely for the Republic. Wanting to bring new planets into joining and things such as that.

I'd probably be the one that voices all those ads and announcements you hear in the background. But if I were Force sensitive I'd probably be a historian with the Sith (since I agree more with their code compared to the Jedi) and working with the Imperial Reclamation Service. Those guys have too much interesting stuff they find.

A nameless character killed in the war before the heroes started doing their thing. Look, I am average. Average gets offed in the epic settings.

If I could chose, I would be planting trees on Telos. Yep, I liked Bao-Dur that much.

A Hutt's toy. I would dance in front of him(hm it?) all the day and then He'd lick me! So gross that it's actually funny
Nah jk. Now for Real:

If I was force sensitive:

I'd be a Sith with my own continent at least. I do think that emotions are the path to power/happiness etc and I love being in control so...yeah. But I wouldn't be cruel. Just pretty just(poetic lol). And intelligent.

If I wasn't force sensitive:

An ex BH PT working as a Gree science consultant(ArmorMech/Slicing). With that said:

We have reached a purple parallel and red tangents surround us fellow go-happy-sentients. Remember: always strive for the orange tangent. Now my eye-visual-sensors have begun to green-shift so I will bid you a good night!

I'd work my ***** off to become a soldier and join the Republic SpecForce, only to clash with the Mandalorians a lot and realize that they're just misunderstood. Defect from the Republic to the Mandos, and eventually off Mandalore and take the position for myself.
Query: Is there someone that you need killed master?

If I was Force sensitive: I may be part of the jedi but then leave since I find their ways too hypocritical sometimes and I disagree with some of their ways. Don't ask me why, I just do. And I'll never make it as a sith.

Non-Force sensitive: Maybe a smuggler helping others and getting a little profit at the end. Though rarely I'll help some for free.
