%%* [[spoiler:DefiantToTheEnd]]

to:

%%* [[spoiler:DefiantToTheEnd]]* DefiantToTheEnd: She makes it very clear it's not the "her dying" part that bothers her about Jacen's execution of her.



%%* [[spoiler:KillTheCutie]]
%%* TheIdealist
%%* [[spoiler:ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice]]

to:

%%* [[spoiler:KillTheCutie]]
%%* TheIdealist
%%* [[spoiler:ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice]]
* KillTheCutie: She's an idealistic young Jedi and Jacen sees some very happy potential futures for her. She gets killed by him, naturally.
* TheIdealist: To contrast the increasingly cynical Jacen. She's a loyal Jedi to the end.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: How Jacen kills her.



* MauveShirt: ''Betrayal'' gives her some decent characterization as a [[TookALevelInBadass formerly shy]] idealist with a crush on [[AntiHero Jacen]], making it seem like she could become a supporting character or MoralityPet. Instead, she's Jacen's first victim.



%%* [[spoiler:SacrificialLamb]]

to:

%%* [[spoiler:SacrificialLamb]]* SacrificialLamb: One of Jacen's first straight-up murders.

%%* ChronicHeroSyndrome

to:

%%* ChronicHeroSyndrome* ChronicHeroSyndrome: A good and noble person who always strived to do the right thing [[spoiler: even to [[HeroicSacrifice his grave.]]]]


Added DiffLines:

* DecoyProtagonist: He's set up as the protagonist of ''New Jedi Order'' but ultimately becomes the SacrificialLion for Jacen. Interestingly, it was originally the opposite but [[ExecutiveMeddling George Lucas requested Anakin be killed off]] resulting in this trope being played straight.

* MeaningfulName: Mara is Aramaic for "bitter", which is one of her primary characteristics in ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy''; also see JadeColoredGlasses above. Jade is also a precious stone that's best known for being used to decorate the palaces of Emperors in Ancient China, which is appropriate for a woman who started her career posing as a courtesan in the Emperor's palace on Coruscant.

"Jade" is also archaic English slang for a woman, or specifically a bitter, cast-aside woman.

to:

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: A young sweet Jedi who doesn't even carry a lightsaber (though this was intentional in order to show that she's not a threat) when negotiating with a Mandalorian. [[spoiler:Which was a mistake.]]]]

* Determinator: When it comes to redeeming others in most situations. The obvious example is his father, who Luke refused to strike down in a moment of anger and who he never stopped believing in, even when he was being shocked with Force Lightning by Palpatine. While he doesn't make an attempt to redeem every single Darksider that he comes across, Luke's belief in and commitment to redeeming people remains with him throughout the series. After a lifetime of working against the governments that Luke had fought to found and support, he still believed that Lumiya could be redeemed during the events of LegacyOfTheForce. Despite falling to the Dark Side and abandoning Luke's Academy, Luke never stopped trying to redeem Brakiss whenever they met during the events of TheNewRebellion and the YoungJediKnights series respectively, even taking it as a personal failure that he couldn't help the other man.

* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: The major lesson Luke learns from his first journey into the cage on Dagobah and what he has to face again on the Second Death Star. This is also the reason he decides not to kill Darth Caedus on the ''Anakin Solo'' during the events of LegacyOfTheForce; he's afraid that him killing Caedus will cause his son Ben to fall to the Dark Side and become another Caedus. Luke later goes out of his way to avoid fighting and killing Caedus for the same reason, only in regards to himself instead.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: A minor case: Octa has a had a tendency to go unmentioned or unseen for long periods. She only appeared once in ''LegacyOfTheForce'' despite being a member of the Council. ''Literature/FateOfTheJedi'' stopped this trend, although she is strangely absent from ''Abyss''.

* TheAce: Jedi, General, Pilot, Teacher, etc. Just about whatever Luke Skywalker sets his mind to, he ends up being good at. Destroying the First Death Star, leading an army, and rebuilding the Jedi Order from scratch are just a few of his achievements. His accomplishments as a Jedi are probably the most impressive, since he only received around a few weeks of formal training at the hands of Obi-Wan and Yoda during the original trilogy. This training was enough to allow him to, for a time, fight evenly with Darth Vader on Cloud City. While Luke eventually lost that duel, he goes on to defeat Vader just a year later on the Second Death Star. Afterwards, his skills continue to increase, with Luke defeating the Cloned Emperor a few years later, a fight which featured waves of power emanating from his body. During the assault on Supreme Overlord Shimrra's Citadel at the conclusion of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Luke's bladework was so fast that he appeared to be standing at the center of a hurricane to his niece and nephew, defeating some of the Vong's best warriors, along with the Supreme Overlord shortly after. In terms of The Force, Luke seems to be the perfect counterpart to the Emperor, in that there doesn't seem to be an ability that he can't master if he puts his mind to it. While George Lucas stated that Anakin never managed to fulfill his own vast potential, he also stated that Luke had the potential to do so, and by all counts he did. Literature/TheCourtshipOfPrincessLeia sees Luke instinctively healing himself from the brink of death, and Literature/ShadowsOfTheEmpire features the Jedi instinctively learning to enhance his reflexes with The Force, which he goes on to master to the point that he can use it during combat at any time. His skill with Telekinesis is such that he can knock down AT-AT's with ease, rebuild Darth Vader's castle, and later tear the same castle down. He can also do more basic things, like absorb laser blasts and cast Jedi Mind Tricks. By the time Luke is Grand Master of the New Jedi Order, he also possesses a number of rare Force abilities as well. These include the ability to walk on lava, become a Force Ghost, create copies of objects with The Force, cloak himself from detection by other Force Users, and attain a state known as Oneness, during which time a Force User achieves an advanced connection to The Force that allows them to almost become a part of it, with luminous energy flowing from Luke's body when he does this. By the end of the StarWarsLegends continuity, Luke is easily the most powerful Jedi in the galaxy, if not the most powerful Force User in general, with him being seen as a LivingLegend and a necessary presence in solving the galaxy's problems.

* OlderAndWiser: The StarWarsLegends continuity covers over 40 years between StarWarsANewHope and StarWarsCrucible. This means that Luke is past the age of ''60'' by the time the series concludes. Naturally, since he's a main character in the majority of works in the series, he develops into this by the end.

An arrogant young Jedi Knight who was part of Kyp Durron's aggressive faction very early in the Yuuzhan Vong war. His own failures and battles against the Vong humbled him, and he turned away from Durron and began supporting Luke's faction. After the Mission to Myrkr, he began investigating rumors that Jacen Solo was alive. He found him seemingly serving the Yuuzhan Vong and was captured, but discovered it was a trick so Jacen could convince the World Brain of the Vong shaped Coruscant to switch sides. Ganner held off the Yuuzhan Vong long enough for Jacen to do so and escape, in a HeroicSacrifice that is regarded as one of the greatest moments in the Franchise/StarWarsLegends canon.

* TheAtoner: Has shades of this at times. Part of the reason he left the New Republic Military after the events of Literature/LukeSkywalkerAndTheShadowsOfMindor is because of the tremendous loss of life that resulted from the battle, which Luke felt personally responsible for not being able to stop, especially since part of the reason for so much death came about as a result of a decision he'd knowingly made. His resulting decision to finally focus on restoring the Jedi Order could be seen as him attempting to atone by ensuring that there will be more Jedi in the future to keep the peace and help prevent such situations. Luke also falls into this mentality whenever one of his students falls to the Dark Side, as seen in the aftermath of Jacen becoming Darth Caedus being Luke willingly travelling the galaxy to learn ''why'' Jacen fell.
