Characters' Beginnings

Below are the commom backgrounds for the Jedi Trials game. This is where we will start characters in any force adept tradition. If you wish to play something else, we can discuss that as well. The game will start with a email inviting your character to visit the council of your force adept tradition on your 21st birthday... But first look through all the links. Next, we have to create a character. Note: You can have more background. For example Annikin Skywalker, was a slave early in his life. Your character too could have some interesting beginnings.

Your first memory of arriving still stands clear in your mind's eye: The shuttle settles gently down and you are lined up with other children. A Jedi in a black robe, who look upon you all with kind but very old eyes, opens the gangway and walks down motioning you all to follow. As you walk down the plank, you see ahead a beautifully manicured garden and a great arch with these word going up one side and down the other in beautifully written script.
