Joysweeper: I love this series like burning. There's something here that seems like a trope, but I can't think of which one. Warlord Zsinj does not like the community name "New Oldtown" - "Surely you're joking about that name", "You're sure he didn't destroy it because of that name," and "Don't ever say that name again. It annoys me." After that, his second-in-command calls it the "hometown-whose-name-is-nevermore-to-be-said."

Joysweeper: Thanks. ...Is there a trope for Baron Fel? Loosely, he's the Imperial counterpart to Luke Skywalker - farmboy who loved to fly, got caught up in the war, found familial ties to someone on the other side. But he's not an Evil Twin or an Evil Knockoff. Is there a trope for someone somewhat similar on the other side?

  • Pinata: Baron Fel always seemed inspired by Baron von Richthofen to me. So would Red Baron be the trope for him?
  • Gattsuru: At least within the writer descriptions, he's pretty clearly established as an Evil Counterpart, what would have happened if Luke had made it into the Imperial Academy (and presumably never found out he was force-sensitive).

And I found a better pic for this page. Unfortunately there's already an image for the game. I'll put the Red Squadron recruitment poster here so it won't be completely homeless.

Technically this is a poster for Red Squadron and the image is from X-Wing Vs TIE Fighter. But hey, Red Squadron survivors founded Rogue Squadron.
