Sidara Eldin

Application of Sidara Eldin

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Star Wars: Fates! How did you find us? Were you recommended? If so, by whom?

 

I was recommended by Cassius Troy.
 
Tell us a little about yourself! Where are you from? How old are you? Do you have any prior experience with fanfiction or roleplaying in general?

 

I'm 25, Irish, and currently residing in the Eastern United States.  I have had considerable prior experience in roleplaying, though nothing within the last year. I've written fanfiction in the past, but I'm not hesitant to say it was crap. I stopped for about ten years and stuck to roleplaying intermittently throughout, before finally going back to the fanfiction scene to practice writing.  I started writing a silly Star Wars SI project that soon blossomed into over 200 thousand words. How, I'm not entirely sure, but apparently Cassius Troy thought it good enough to warrant a recommendation.
 
Have you ever been a part of a roleplaying community or guild in the past? If so, which ones?

 

No real communities or guilds, I've jumped in and out of small forums and the like, but nothing like this forum.
 
What is the most important thing for you to get out of your experience here? Exciting stories with interesting characters? Good friends? A sense of belonging?

 

All three? All of these things are certainly desirable, but most important for me is continued writing practice.  There's no way I'm going to be better if I don't practice.
 
Do you know what a Mary/Gary Stu is? Metagaming? God Modding? Provide a quick definition of each, because all of the aforementioned are against the rules, will you or you character have trouble conforming to this?

 

Yes, I am aware of these terms. A Mary/Gary Stu is a character who is perfect, that's not to say that they are 'masters of everything' though they can be. Rather, they face no challenges, suffer no real losses or face no problems. The plot of a story bends to accommodate them. Metagaming is when one uses out of character knowledge to determine in character actions in order to gain some advantage.  God Modding is when one participant in a roleplaying interaction refuses to allow their character to suffer any injuries or setbacks, and overrides the autonomy of the other player to injure, kill, or otherwise defeat their character.
 
How much time will you be willing to commit to the community? Do you forsee your schedule getting in the way of things?

 

My schedule can change evenly enough, but I am confident that while I will not be present 24/7, nor even 24/6, I will be active enough to keep up.
 
Can you give us a quick run down of the biography and character you hope to RP on this site? A quick idea of a biography, type of character they are, and whether they might be aligned with the Sith Remnant, or the Unified Jedi Order.

 

I would like to play a Jedi character, ideally an initiate seeking to further her knowledge and training with the Jedi Order. Sidara Eldin is a relatively young woman, one of the more nomadic Miraluka with passion for learning and seeing new things.
 
Do you have any lingering questions or concerns? A member of our staff will be happy to answer anything that comes to mind.
 
Would you like to provide any closing comments on your application? On behalf of the staff of Star Wars: Fates and the entire community, we wish you luck and may the Force Be With You!

 

 

Name: Sidara Eldin
Gender: Female
Species: Miraluka
Rank: Jedi Initiate.
Date of Birth: 3614
 
Appearance: Sidara Eldin is a Miraluka woman of slightly above average height, having hit her growth spurt early in life, standing at 1.9 meters and weighing 165 pounds. Her body is thin, though not unhealthily so, with hints of forming muscle on her arms and chest. Sidara's hair is brown and style in a short, simple style, just barely reaching her neck. As a Miraluka she has no eyes, and wears a simple blue blindfold to cover the vestigial eye sockets.  


Possessions:  Sidara Eldin possesses very little to her name, beyond what was passed down by her parents. A few changes of clothes, mostly a variety of tunics and pants, a simple vest alongside a a coat for the winter months. Her typical attire is a pair of black paints with a white tunic shirt, with a brown pocketed vest over that. Though now that she has joined the Jedi Academy, she has been given the simple tan tunic of the Jedi Initiate.  She possesses only four hundred credits to her name, and a simple blaster pistol. However, her most valued possession is her mother's lightsaber. The lightsaber itself a simple, unadorned device with a green blade.
 
Personality: Sidara is a calm woman, preferring quiet where she can find it and tending towards a sort of contemplative diligence. Sidara speaks when she feels a need but otherwise allows others to dominate conversation, not out of any shyness, but rather a lack of interest in extended conversation unless something is being taught. When she does speak though, her voice is soft and perhaps a little ragged from lack of use. She speaks formally, having a disdain for informal speech. Beyond that, she wants to be a good Jedi like her mother, even if she is not sure what that entails, and is determined to do her best. 
 
Skills, Abilities and Talents:  As a Miraluka, and a former student of the Luka Sene, Sidara  has a strong ability to sense the world around her, using it to see and guide her. Sidara's knowledge of Jedi techniques are limited to the basic skills she learned from her mother, from the basics of telekinesis, jumping, and pushing with the Force, though she has proven capable enough with them.  Her lightsaber skills are lackluster comparably, her mother having only begun to teach her Shii-Cho before her death.   


Biography: Sidara Eldin was born on Alpheridies to Celessa and Rathe Eldin, her father being a Sene Seeker, and her mother a retired Jedi Padawan. As a Miraluka she was born naturally sensitive to the Force, using it to compensate for the Miraluka's lack of eyes.  Growing up, Sidara did not gain many friends her age, her natural quietness proving off putting to many other children. Despite this, and her parent's fears, she did not seem to take this fact too negatively, preferring to do things on her own. Her strong sensitivity to the Force didn't become obvious until her seventh year, when in a fit of childish anger, she unconsciously pushed, and hurt a fellow student. This action resulted in her eventual suspension from her school.

 

Her parents made the decision to withdraw her from the school and teach her at home. Her Father would take her with him to the university in the morning, letting her sit in on his classes to do her schoolwork. During these classes, she would often pause to listen to her father instruct new students in the ways of the Luka Sene, practicing when she could to try and emulate them.  And while she could not match the skill of the older students, she could match their diligence and eagerness to learn, her father teaching her the basics after class.  In the afternoon, she would help her mother around the house. Celessa Elegin would instruct Sidara in the basics of telekinesis, and allow her to practice lifting and moving objects to clean up the home.  Other times she would teach her other basic skills  as well.

 

When she hit eleven, her mother first introduced her to the lightsaber, more at Sidara's insistence than desire. Celessa would run through Shii-Cho drills and Sidara would emulate her as best she could, seeking to match her movements.  It was around this time that she met Merrick Solman. The son of one of her father's fellow teachers and similarly strong in the Force.  More importantly, Merrick understood her solemn nature. Together they would practice their sense abilities, or simply walk through the city. Merrick would deal with much of the conversation, having a talent for interpreting Sidara's silences and translating them for others unfamiliar with her.  

 

However, at 14, Merrick's father Alon fell to the Dark Side. Whatever the reasons, Rathe Eldin was sent with a team of security personnel to apprehend him and bring him back to Alpheridies for rehabilitation. However, Alon proved talented enough to fight back and slew Rathe and the security team before fleeing.  This caused Sidara to retreat inwards, eschewing all contact with anyone but her mother. Merrick attempted to see her several times, but each time she refused to acknowledge him, throwing herself into her studying and training with her mother. Celessa, after Rathe's death, agreed to teach her more of what Jedi techniques she knew.  

 

A year later, Celessa became ill and fell into debt, forcing Sidara to take up whatever work she could to support her family as much of what her father had left went into her mother's treatment. However, after a year Celessa succumbed to her illness, leaving Sidara alone with only a small amount of credits to her name and a considerable debt to pay.  In response, Sidara sold off the house and most of her possessions to pay off the debt, taking what was left alongside her mother's lightsaber, before taking the first shuttle to Dantooine, not having any desire to stay on Alpheridies anymore and unsure of what else to do.
 
Character Skills and Abilities:

 

Novice Single Saber: A basic understanding of how a lightsaber works, including the skills necessary for building, maintaining, repairing and safely wielding one in comba

Form I - Novice Shii-Cho: A basic understanding of lightsaber combat, teaching rudimentary skills such as footwork, striking, blocking, parrying, blaster deflection, the body's target zones and instinctive Force application.

Force Dash: Regarded as one of the core abilities taught to any Force-sensitive, Force Dash allows the user to enhance their own speed for a short period of time, allowing them to move at a superhuman speed, or in most cases, dash forward a short distance to dodge an attack or close the distance between an adversary.

Force Jump: Regarded as one of the core abilities taught to any Force-sensitive, Force Jump allows the user to enhance their capabilities of jumping, allowing them to jump a longer distance vertically. Most practitioners learn to utilize this skill to cushion their landings to reduce the risk of injury.

Force Sight: An advanced version of Force Sense, Force Sight allows the user to see the world around them with the Force, even if one's eyes become useless. Focusing on utilizing the ability allows one Advanced uses of Force Sight teach users of more insight into danger sense, expanding on how one can perceive a battlefield and to allow the Force to act as a three-hundred-and-sixty degree defense mechanism, providing more information for the user. (Since she's a Miraluka and has spent time with the Luka Sene, I think it makes some sense that she has some more advanced sensory skills, but I'll defer to moderator judgment.)

Force Listen: A basic augmented sensory ability, Force Listen allows the user to enhance their auditory ability to hear from longer distances. An advanced user could potentially separate specific voices to correctly eavesdrop on a conversation.

Force Push: A basic telekinetic ability, Force Push allows the user to release a burst of pressurized air outwards from their palm towards an object or individual to throw it away with excessive force. Due to the nature of this ability, the further the distance between both individuals reduces the effectiveness of the power, resulting in a weaker push. The user can reverse the polarity to pull an object or individual towards them, or in another direction.

Novice Telekinesis - Allows the user to manipulate small-sized objects such as a lightsaber and a datapad with minimal concentration, while allowing them to turn their entire focus on moving average-sized objects such as a humanoid or a bed.


Final Notes: The Luka Sene have an ability called Field Detection, which allow them to sense energy fields, generators, devices and such. They can sense shields and at the more advanced stages can even detect temporary fluctuations to find weaknesses in the shield . I'm not sure if any of the Force powers currently listed cover that, and I'm also not necessarily asking for Sidara to have that skill, rather it would be a skill she knows about and perhaps has an understanding of 'this is how it's supposed to work'. Is it possibly something to potentially learn later at moderator discretion.

Honestly I know exactly what you're talking about in regards the field detection but I think you're correct I cannot find it anywhere in the skills or force powers so I'll see if we should add it or not or if it does fall under a particular skill that's already there. Beyond that, everything looks good!
