The character sheet (tee hee) for the webcomic ''Darths and Droids''. This page shows the various characters and the tropes related to them. If the character is a PC, the various characters they play will be here as well.

!Players / [=PCs=]

!!Jim

Jim is a roleplayer of the "XP and loot first, plot later" variety, and is more interested in having a cool adventure than in puzzles or plot. He tends to jump head first into things, often while barely understanding the situation and frequently making things worse. But Jim isn't stupid: he's actually a highly intelligent graduate student who can come up with plausible explanations for the most nonsensical stuff in the ''Star Wars'' universe. He just likes to "turn his brain off." He has developed a rather obvious crush on Annie, culminating in them starting to date at the end of ''Episode II''. The relationship sours between ''Episodes II'' and ''III'', but later recovers.

Plays Qui-Gon Jinn, Anakin for about two strips, and later Padme, then - eventually[[note]]He started ''Episode IV'' with a string of characters like [[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Kyle Katarn]] and Captain Antilles killed off in rapid succession.[[/note]] - Han Solo, in D&D universe (originally) renamed "Greedo".

* ActionGirl: He played one from the end of Episode I to the end of Episode III, anyway.
* AggressiveNegotiations: Naturally, Jim is fond of this trope. Although he claims to need a laser blaster to properly negotiate, because the laser sword's reach isn't good enough.
* AlternateUniverse: He has played [[Film/HarryPotter Hermione Granger]], [[Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic Friedrich von Trapp]], [[Film/{{X-Men}} Wolverine]], [[Film/{{Aliens}} Newt]], [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Dorothy Gale]], [[Film/ThreeHundred King Leonidas]], [[Film/{{Avatar}} Neytiri]], [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Sarah Connor]], [[Film/{{Jaws}} Martin Brody]], [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Rick Blaine]], [[Film/TheMuppetMovie Miss Piggy]], [[Film/{{Inception}} Mr. Saito]], [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Elizabeth Swann]], [[Film/BackToTheFuture Clara Clayton]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender Bending Rodriguez]], [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Augustus Gloop]], [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet John J. Adams]], [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Dr. Peter Venkman]], [[Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts Phalerus]], and [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Parker]]. He's the only player who has a character in all the universes thus far.
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: Both [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0697.html Jim himself]] and [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0205.html the]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0679.html characters]] he plays have nothing but praise for other characters played by him.
* CharacterDerailment: In-universe. His handling of Padme is completely different from how the GM did it.
* CharacterDevelopment: Throughout the series he develops quite a lot as a gamer. He started out as TheRealMan with little care for the plot or roleplaying; he ended up gaining some appreciation for them and in ''Episode III'' even managed to impress [[TheRoleplayer Annie]] with his roleplaying. Also, it seems that by ''Episode IV'' he [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0782.html learned]] there's a difference between in-character and out-of-character knowledge (back in ''Episode I'' the idea [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0157.html seemed to confuse him]]).
* CloudCuckoolander: His philosophy on gaming starts with a ForrestGump reference and ends with "Chocolate dice!". Also, it seemingly never occurred to him that when he learns something his character isn't supposed to know during session he should simply pretend not to hear it [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0707.html until Corey did just that]].
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In addition to having a degree, in Episode IV he appears to be playing a one-dimensional goofball... only to reveal that this was an ''in-character'' act.
* GambitRoulette: His plan for the Mos Eisley pod race. Goes UpToEleven because almost ''every single step'' of the plan by all rights should have ensured its spectacular failure, and yet it still somehow ''works''.
* GeniusDitz: DoubleSubversion: He's a genius most of the time, it's only when he's gaming that he's a moron... but because the comic is entirely concerned with a game campaign and we never see the characters in any other setting, he still comes across as an idiot with flashes of brilliance on a particular subject (geophysics).
** There are hints that he may be prone to ditzy behavior even when not gaming. After all, he did [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0573.html yell in public]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0572.html that vampires do not sparkle in the daylight]]...
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: As Padme.
* GratuitousItalian: Speaks like this while playing "Greedo". He drops it after "Greedo" changes identities with Han.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: [[UnreliableNarrator According to Jim himself at least]], the time he played Kyle Katarn ended with Katarn [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0679.html bravely sacrificing himself]].]]
* IdiotHero
* LawfulGood: In-universe. Qui-Gon, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0064.html in theory]].
* {{Malaproper}}: Sort of inverted, Jim [[KnowNothingKnowItAll immediately and authoritatively]] states a random definition for whatever alien word the DM mentions.
** For some value of "random". At least some of them may be soundalikes, not that they make any ''sense'':
--> '''Obi-Wan''': [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0003.html "Jedi"?]]
--> '''Qui-Gon''': [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheddar_cheese It's a type of cheese.]]
* MeaningfulName: Jim being one letter off from Jin. No longer meaningful as of Qui-Gon's death.
** As of ''Episode IV'' it starts to look like "[[MiserAdvisor Greedo]]" is going to be another MeaningfulName:
--> '''"Greedo"''': [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0753.html No pay, no fly!]]
* MethodActing: In-universe he [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0754.html took this approach to roleplaying]] at some point between ''Episode III'' and ''IV''.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Every other day. And this is an understatement. And most of the time he (apparently) doesn't even notice when it's pointed out.
-->'''Owen:''' Yes. [The Sand People] used to be a peaceful, meditative race, until about ten years ago, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0098.html when they mysteriously acquired weapons]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0100.html and started shooting at pod races.]] They began terrorising town dwellers, claiming some sort of broken promise. They've descended into barbarism.\\
'''Jim:''' Wow. I wouldn't like to be the one responsible for that.
* NoodleIncident: Has had several, the three biggest being Annie's game between ''Episodes II'' and ''III'' [[spoiler:where he threw a fit when Annie introduced [[{{Twilight}} sparkling vampires]] and didn't explain that they weren't evil]], between ''Episodes III'' and ''IV'' where they went through the Dark Forces games and Jim was Kyle Katarn (after this game he seems to have been banned from playing Jedi or owning a laser sword) and also between ''Episode III'' and ''IV'' when he [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0754.html ran a "gritty action-o-drama" campaign of his own]].
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: How he plays Han Solo [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0927.html in Episode V]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He's working on his Ph.D.
--> '''Pete:''' Roleplaying is his downtime. He likes to turn his brain off.
** In universe, Greedo/Han appears to be this.
*** In Episode V he casually reveals to the other players that his character has low intelligence and wisdom. Which means that all this time he's been ''intentionally'' playing Greedo/Han as an idiot. The other players are shocked to find this out, because they [[IdiotHero honestly didn't notice any difference.]]
* OneSteveLimit: Averted in-universe as "Greedo" has the same name as a Rodian killed by Anakin back in ''Episode I''. Also averted in the meta sense, as having the movie's Han become the strip's "Greedo" and vice-versa really makes things confusing.
* TheRealMan
* {{UST}}: With Annie throughout ''Episode II'', getting upgraded to an official relationship by the end.
* WordSaladPhilosophy: His personal philosophy [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0143.html seems to be this]]. Then again, he's probably got a better one when he's more lucid.

!!Ben

An old roleplaying buddy of Jim's. Ben is often the voice of reason, and tries his best to rein Jim in. He's rather more focused on the role-playing than Jim--he's one of the few participants to distinguish between in-character knowledge and out-of-character knowledge, and he's even taking drama classes to help with improv. He's also very good at thinking his way around the GM's setting and rules. He has a habit of pointing out the flaws in the setting. He studies medicine outside the campaign, if only because his father wants him to. After his sister Sally confronts him over this in ''Episode III'', he goes away to rethink his life, and doesn't return until two years later during ''Episode IV''.

Played Obi-Wan Kenobi until he was killed by Darth Vader in ''Episode IV'' and then took control of Jim's sidekick, Chewbacca.

* AloofBigBrother: Toes the line between this and BigBrotherMentor.
* AlternateUniverse: He has played [[Film/HarryPotter Ron Weasley]], [[Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic Kurt von Trapp]], [[Film/{{X-Men}} Cyclops]], [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Ellen Ripley]], [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the Scarecrow]], [[Film/ThreeHundred Stelios]], [[Film/{{Avatar}} Norm Spellman]], [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} John Connor]], [[Film/{{Jaws}} Dr. Matt Hooper]], [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Sam]], [[Film/TheMuppetMovie Fozzie Bear]], [[Film/{{Inception}} Dom Cobb]], [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Will Turner]], [[Film/BackToTheFuture Marty McFly]], [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Grandpa Joe]], [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Jerry Farman]], [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Dr. Raymond Stantz]], [[Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts Hylas]], [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Lady Penelope]] and IndianaJones, but has no character that we know of in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Hypnotoads & Hyperchickens]]''. Maybe he was the GM for that one.
* BadassBeard: Apparently got one between Episode III and Episode IV while he went WalkingTheEarth, like the TropeNamer of TheObiWan himself. Even [[WrongGenreSavvy Jim]], who seems to think [[BeardOfEvil beards]] show evil, calls it cool.
* DeadpanSnarker
* HeroicSacrifice: While duelling Darth Vader, he stops to use Force Persuasion to stop the clones from firing on the other players. Doing so however, leaves him vulnerable to Vader's next attack.
* HonorBeforeReason: Not only is his version of Obi-wan an example of this trope, but Ben's commitment to staying in-character means that Obi-wan will, at crucial moments, take actions that Ben knows full well to be bad ideas.
* LawfulGood: As a Jedi, Obi-Wan should be this in-universe. Ben does well with the Good half, not so much with the Lawful, but still better than Jim.
-->'''Ben:''' ''"I wrote "''Good''" on my character sheet, and I jolly well ''meant'' it! Unlike '''some''' people!"''
* LeavingYouToFindMyself: He goes on a two-year-long journey to rethink his life after Sally questions him why he's doing exactly what their father wants by studying medicine during the ''Episode III'' campaign.
* MeaningfulName: Ben was a name Obi-Wan took after the purge.
* MrExposition: Shares this role with Sally in episode IV.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Not nearly as bad as Jim, though.
* TheObiWan: Seems to be taking this role since his return in ''Episode IV'' for Corey, though also showing the same "enlightened" outlook toward others. Playing the TropeNamer helps.
* OnlySaneMan: At least among the players, though he's not above twisting the insanity around to his benefit. His comparative sanity is most evident in the latter parts of Episode III.
* PutOnABus: He's nowhere to be seen at the start of ''Episode IV''.
** TheBusCameBack: He returns in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0719.html episode 719]].
* RageQuit: Pete accused him of this when he didn't bother to roll against Vader's Force Disintergrate (in truth, Vader rolled really well and Obi-Wan had a penalty to his roll for being distracted and so Ben figured it wasn't worth trying). He's proved wrong when Ben shows up at the next session having taken over Chewbacca's character.
* TheRoleplayer
* TheSmartGuy
* WalkingTheEarth: Or something to that effect. It turns out Ben disappeared in the time between Episode III and IV to find himself. Only he forgot to really keep in contact, so everyone thought the worst, especially Sally.
* WellDoneSonGuy: According to Sally, the only reason he was going into medicine is because his dad wants him to.

!!Sally

Ben's younger sister. Initially she only tagged along with Ben because her parents couldn't afford a babysitter that night, so the GM worked her into the game, and she ended up enjoying it far more than anyone expected and sticking around for the rest of the campaign. She's also wildly imaginative and not afraid to contribute to the world-building--many of the stranger aspects of the prequel trilogy were her contributions.

Played Jar-Jar Binks in ''Episode I'', then kept switching between a bunch of minor side characters like C-3PO, Mace Windu, and Yoda after she got bored with the NonActionGuy. Finally settled on C-3PO

* AlternateUniverse: She has played [[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter]], [[Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic Liesl von Trapp]], [[Film/{{X-Men}} Storm]], [[Film/{{Aliens}} Vasquez]], [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the Cowardly Lion]], [[Film/ThreeHundred Dilios]], [[Film/{{Avatar}} Trudy Chacon]], [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} the T-1000]], [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Victor Laszlo]], [[Film/{{Inception}} Eames]], [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Hector Barbossa]], [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Dr. Zoidberg]], [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Violet Beauregarde]], [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Dr. Morbius]], [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Dr. Egon Spengler]], {{Film/Jason|AndTheArgonauts}}, and [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Brains]], but has no character that we know of in ''[[Film/{{Jaws}} Carcasses & Carcharadons]]'' and appears to be the GM of ''[[Film/TheMuppetMovie Amphibians & Anthropomorphisms]]''. Amusingly, some of these characters still speak like Jar-Jar Binks.
* TheAtoner: As Mace Windu, she [[RandomNumberGod accidentally]] [[OffWithHisHead killed off]] Jango Fett. Mace spends the rest of the arena battle in a remorseful daze.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Has a strong tendency to decide a character or activity is "stupid/boring" and look for another.
* BadassAdorable
* BerserkButton: She doesn't like it [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0688.html when Ben is insulted in her presence]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Plays these. In real life she's just young and can have a short attention span.
* DungeonmastersGirlfriend: In the early strips, she tends to get this treatment due to her young age, with the GM often going easy on her and letting her have her way. However, the players don't mind and tend to be just as protective of her, too.
* FleetingPassionateHobbies: In addition to her frequent switching of characters, in ''Episode III'', she switches interests from ice skating to fashion design to fantasy world-building to journalism to politics to veterinary medicine in between each game session.
* HiddenDepths: Short attention span or not, she has a gift for worldbuilding. At one point, when the DM let her flat out design a set, she left him and Ben speechless in awe. She later claims that she wishes to be a fantasy writer and has apparently mapped out an entire planet.
* LittleMissSnarker: [[CharacterDevelopment Gained]] a few pints of this during the [=RotS=]-ANH break.
-->'''R2-D2:''' So your life expectancy just dropped... to your next birthday. Which is actually tomorrow.
-->'''C-3PO:''' Happy Birthday!

-->'''C-3PO:''' ''(after R2 sets off a million alarms)'' I'm pretty sure this does not match the definition of "sneaking in".
* TheLoonie
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: [[InvokedTrope Intentionally]]. Sally made Jar-Jar likable in the series. It got so good, Jim said "Jar-Jar, you're a genius," and it was perfectly believable.

!!Pete

An old friend of Jim's. Pete tries to abuse the system as much as possible - for example, he designed his character as short, armless, and unintelligible so he could get advantages elsewhere. Spent most of ''Episode II'' bitter about [[Film/ThePrincessBride a low-fantasy campaign]] that he, Jim, and Ben played during the first TimeSkip.

Plays R2-D2, and subbed in for the GM when he had to leave for a family emergency in ''Episode II''.

* AlternateUniverse: He has played [[Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic Captain von Trapp]], [[Film/{{X-Men}} Professor X]], [[Film/{{Aliens}} Corporal Hicks]], [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the Tin Man]], [[Film/ThreeHundred Captain Artemis]], [[Film/{{Avatar}} Jake Sully]], [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Miles Dyson]], [[Film/{{Jaws}} Sam Quint]], [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Ugarte]] (but later switched to Louie Renault after Ugarte was killed off), [[Film/TheMuppetMovie Gonzo]], [[Film/{{Inception}} Arthur]], [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack the Monkey]], [[Film/BackToTheFuture Seamus McFly]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Professor Farsnworth]], [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Charlie Bucket]], [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Robby the Robot]], [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Louis Tully]], [[Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts Hercules]], and [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Virgil]], but has no character that we know of in ''[[Film/HarryPotter Wands & Warts]]''.
* BatheHerAndBringHerToMe: Inverted. He requests that he be cleaned and oiled by the Queen's most beautiful handmaiden as a reward for saving the ship.
* ChaoticNeutral: In-universe [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0192.html he claims this is R2-D2's alignment]]. Ben, however, thinks [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0576.html he's actually of evil alignment]].
-->'''[[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0783.html Pete]]:''' If ''I'' was controlling a bad guy you know what I'd do?\\
'''Ben:''' "''If''"?
* EveryoneHasStandards: Pete might be a {{Munchkin}} of the worst variety but he reacts with offense when accused of rigging his special die to get Ben killed.
--> '''Pete:''' Look, I cajole dice, I beg them, I even punish them. But never in my life have I ''manipulated'' them.
* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: He should NEVER DM and play a character at the same time for this reason. Well this and RailRoading.
* HiddenDepths: In-universe Annie is very surprised when it's [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0481.html revealed]] that Pete has a job and that, presumably, he does have a life outside gaming. [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0848.html Later]] she is surprised again when it turns out that Pete's job involves wearing a suit and tie.
** And [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1062.html now]] it is reveled (again to her surprise) that he gives speeches.
** [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1022.html Apparently]] he was a [[spoiler:frequent victim of bullying]] at school.
* JerkassWithAHeartOfGold: He may be a jerk but its shown that he does care about the others, particularly Sally as he calls out older brother Ben for being a bad example to her.
* KillerGameMaster: When Pete guest [=GMs=] he puts the others through a killer death trap course as revenge for their actions in another campaign, although no one's character is actually killed thanks to some luck and some sucking up.
** [[JerkassHasAPoint Killer Game Master Has a Point]]: When called out for what he put the player characters through, Pete points out all the various ways they could have easily worked their way out of the deathtraps ''without'' R2-D2 coming to their rescue, except for Jim, [[ItsPersonal whom Pete really had it in for]]. Ironically, when the GM ultimately returns and asks how things with Pete went, [[BaitAndSwitch Jim is the only player praising and defending Pete's GM style]].
* MinMaxing[=/=]{{Munchkin}}
* OddFriendship: With Sally, though it sometimes seems [[TheFriendNobodyLikes a little one-sided.]]
* PetTheDog: He claims [[ItsPersonal to have it in for Jim]] during the [[KillerGM droid factory segment]]. but when push comes to shove, he ultimately saves Jim's character, (Padme) from otherwise certain dom.
* TheQuisling: When General Grievous promises to modify him.
--> R2-D2: If you're planning to give me one of those, I for one would like to bow to my new cybernetic master.
* {{Railroading}}: Did so during his brief time as GM during Episode II. The railroad went straight through a killer robot manufacturing death trap.
* RunningGag: What DOES he do for a living?
* TheScrappy: [[InvokedTrope Intended as such]], [[MisaimedFandom but the fans seem to disagree]]. The Comic Irregulars have stated that, in addition to redeeming Jar-Jar, they wanted to take one of the most beloved characters and make the fans hate him. Hence, R2-D2 is a rude, self-centered munchkin. The problem is, Pete himself isn't that bad of a guy, and he's hilarious to the readers.
* TokenEvilTeammate: At worst.

!!Annie

An initial non-gamer and thespian. She met Ben through drama class, and he introduced her to the role-playing group. She initially saw the sessions as acting opportunities (and she provided a humorous outsider's perspective on the usual PC behavior), but she is getting the hang of the combat simulations. She clearly has a lot of fun collaborating with the GM on her characters' backstories, and playing the parts for all the angst she can. Has been dating Jim since the end of ''Episode II''. Ran her own [[Film/VanHelsing supernatural]] [[Literature/{{Twilight}} campaign]] during the second TimeSkip, but the other players didn't take to it and it strained her relationship with Jim during ''Episode III''. However, the two work out their differences.

Briefly played Shmi before taking over Anakin Skywalker, then switched to Princess Leia in ''Episode IV'', later doubling as Darth Vader.

* ActingForTwo: Plays both Princess Leia and Darth Vader in Episode IV after the GM gives her the latter role.
* AlternateUniverse: She has played [[Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic Fräulein Maria]], [[Film/{{X-Men}} Jean Grey]], [[Film/{{Aliens}} Burke]], [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Toto]], [[Film/ThreeHundred Ephialtes]], [[Film/{{Avatar}} Dr. Grace Augustine]], [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} the T-800]], [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Ilsa Lund]], [[Film/TheMuppetMovie Kermit the Frog]], [[Film/{{Inception}} Ariadne]], [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]], [[Film/BackToTheFuture Maggie McFly]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Turanga Leela]], [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Veruca Salt]], [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Altaira]], [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Dana Barrett]], [[Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts Argus]], and [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Jeff]], but has no characters that we know of in ''[[Film/HarryPotter Wands & Warts]]'' or ''[[Film/{{Jaws}} Carcasses & Carcharadons]]''.
* TheCorrupter: How she plays Anakin.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Both in and out of character.
* LawfulEvil: In-universe. [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0064.html Annie's playing Anakin this way]].
* KansasCityShuffle: Uses this like mad, particularly in the third campaign where Anakin plays Palpatine and the Jedi against each other, trying to turn himself into the second most powerful man in the galaxy. The other players don't always know what's going on either; it appears the only person Annie has actually briefed on her plans for Anakin is The GM.
* MeaningfulName: In the movies, "Ani" was a pet name given to Anakin.
* TheRolePlayer: Friend of Ben's from a drama course. Joined the game as a role play exercise. The other players don't mind it most of the time, but she [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0572.html occasionally takes it too far]] for them.
* RulesLawyer: One of her [[Awesome/DarthsAndDroids best moments]] involves her [[spoiler:outdoing Pete at his own game and using this to hamstring his railroading during his [=GM=] tenure.]]
* TokenEvilTeammate: Not actually, but definitely the ways she plays Anakin. [[DesignatedHero Jim and Pete]] have no problem siding with Anakin even as "his" evil becomes more and more obvious.
* {{UST}}: With Jim.
* CatchPhrase: "Trust me." Never before has that simple phrase been so chilling.

!!Corey

Pete's nephew, who he brings along to a session early in ''Episode IV''. He appears to be an experienced MMORPG-player (judging by some LeetSpeak in his dialogue), and is unimpressed with their more traditional system. This causes immediate friction with Sally.

As of ''Episode IV'', he plays Luke Skywalker (in D&D universe going by the name "Adam Lars", later "Luke Amidala", and now "Luke [[MythologyGag Starkiller]]").

* AchievementsInIgnorance: After Obi-Wan's death, Luke became disillusioned on the usefulness of the Force, and thus was reluctant on using it himself. [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0910.html He ended up using it unintentionally at the end of the Battle of Yavin.]]
* AlternateUniverse: Due to being a latecomer, he had no characters in the universes up to and including ''[[Film/BackToTheFuture Docs & DeLoreans]]''. Since his debut, he has played [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Philip J. Fry]], [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Mike Teevee]], [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet "Doc" Ostrow]], [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Winston Zeddemore]], [[Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts Polydeuces]], and [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Alan]].
* AwesomeMcCoolname: When tasked with changing his character's last name of Amidala, Corey suggests "Potter-underscore-1337" (after his first suggestion of just "Potter" being denied due to [[Franchise/HarryPotter not being original]]).
* BrattyHalfPint: At first but matures as the campaign goes on, mirrors Luke growing into a Jedi Knight.
* CultureClash: With his uncle when he wants to use an electronic random number generator instead of rolling dice.
* CloudCuckooLander: It's hard to tell whether he's being sarcastic sometimes or whether he just doesn't really get that he's not playing a computer game with some of his comments, such as where he could see his inventory or if he could "replay this CutScene later" after an InfoDump. He also occasionally gets in-character and out-of-character conversations [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0725.html mixed up]]:
-->'''Ben (as Obi-Wan):''' Let me explain from the beginning. You know your name isn't really Adam?\\
'''Corey:''' Yeah, it's Corey. I know how this works.
* FirstNameBasis: Calls Pete by his first name.
* HeroicBSOD: Seems to go through a minor one after Obi-Wan's death.
* {{Kissgusting}}: His reaction when [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0833.html Leia kisses him]].
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Uncle, Like Nephew]]: Started out as [[{{Munchkin}} a mini-Pete]] of sorts, except he was interested in a different kind of games; it even got [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0702.html lampshaded by the GM]]. However, he seems to grow into...
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: He initially described himself as "an expert crack-shot ninja karate master stunt driver with a suit of powered armor".
* RefusedTheCall: At first he was reluctant to abandon his home, but even after he accepted his role as hero he fights tooth and nail against using any Force powers or his light saber.
* TheRolePlayer: And he's surprisingly good at it considering he's ''Pete's'' nephew. He even calls Pete out on it!
* TheSixthRanger: Is the latest to join the group, and what with being almost two thirds of their way through the movies, it's unlikely he'll be replaced.
* [[spoiler:UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Letting C-3PO [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0703.html take a bath in lubrication oil]] led to the oil getting contaminated with dust, which caused Beru's and Owen's weapons to jam during their fight with Vader's troops, which in turn led [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0736.html to their deaths]].]]
* WrongGenreSavvy:
** He has only ever played computer [=RPGs=] and is therefore unused to the conventions of tabletop roleplaying.
** Corey falls for another form of it when [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1000.html he reaches Dagobah]] in the ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' arc. He goes in with no active sensors to avoid detection by the native population (for security reasons, assuming they're all Imperials). This leads to him [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1002.html faceplanting in a swamp]] because he couldn't tell what kind of planet he was ''actually'' landing on (he thought the fog was smog).

!!The GM

He comes up with epic campaigns for the others to play... which rarely last five minutes before they go completely off the rails. He's given up trying to railroad (except briefly in ''Episode III'', where he becomes ''really'' insistent that Ben/Obi Wan go to Naboo) and instead works around the craziness that his players come up with. He still takes a perverse pleasure in ensuring that any morally dubious action the players take somehow returns to bite them in the rear.

* GameMaster
* LargeHam: He has ''way'' too much fun playing the [=NPCs=]. And the sound effects.
* LaserGuidedKarma: In-universe. He no longer suffers from illusions of being in control of his game, but he still makes an effort to bring this trope into play.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Switches between various accents, from Boston to JapaneseRanguage to a French and Spanish FunetikAksent to the AntiquatedLinguistics of a hard boiled detective from Noir fiction. [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0308.html Ben has to give him props for doing this well]] when he is controlling four(five if you count the one with no accent) characters with completely different accents at the same time in an NPC conversation. [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0307.html That isn't to say he's always on top of it, though.]]
** JustAStupidAccent: How he deals with alien cultures, since he's not going to make a {{Fictionary}} for each race.
* NoNameGiven: [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0333.html Lampshaded]] in TheUnreveal.
* OnlySaneMan
* WhatTheHellHero: Indeed, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0241.html he states]] that one of the fun things about being GM is playing NPC superiors of [=PCs=], so you can call this trope on them.

!!Palpatine
The senator from Naboo, he seems to be a pretty decent guy, working to keep order in the galaxy and shying away from underhanded dealings whenever possible. This is a stark reversal from the original movies: instead of him manipulating the well-meaning Anakin into joining TheDarkSide, it's ''the other way around''.

* AntiVillain: He orders the deaths of all Jedi in the field, but he was manipulated into it and feels regret about it.
* TheCorruptible: And [[TheCorrupter Anakin]] succeeds in turning him.
* FaceHeelTurn: Manipulated into one by Anakin.
* OnlySaneMan
-->'''Palpatine:''' In the wrong hands, [the Death Star] could be... disastrous.\\
'''Anakin:''' But in the right hands?\\
'''Palpatine:''' There ''are'' no right hands!
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Apparently.
* RetiredBadass: A former Jedi Knight before he went into politics. Apparently in this universe, "Darth" is an honorific given to retired Jedi.

!!Darth Maul

A private eye hired by Palpatine to help recover the Lost Orb of Whatever, he is actually meant to be an ally to the [=PCs=], but is not treated as such by Jim (who, of course, sees everyone in terms of XP and loot).

* AntiquatedLinguistics: He talks like a 30s hard-boiled detective, particularly the slang.
* BountyHunter: Except not. He's really a PrivateDetective, but nobody relevant is willing to hear him out and team up with him.
* [[spoiler:DeadPartner: To Jango Fett, hence his hatred of Obi-Wan.]]
* PoorCommunicationKills: Qui-Gon and he himself, as per the original movie.

!!Chancellor Valorum

* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:He returns as General Grievous.]]
* CloudCuckooLander
* PresidentEvil

!!Jango Fett

* BountyHunter: [[spoiler:Except not. He's also a PrivateDetective.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:He's the silver serving robot seen throughout Episode I, undercover.]]
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: [[UnreliableNarrator According to Ben]], [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0737.html his aim sucked.]]
-->'''Ben''': He had a nervous twitch fighting living targets. He ''never'' hit.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge
* ToThePain: Delivered to Obi-Wan upon meeting.
* [[spoiler:[[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Partner]]: Ben made a somewhat bad decision, yes.]]

!!Count Dookû

* CassandraTruth: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]]. [[spoiler: He's right about the Peace Moon being a weapon, but Palpatine only built it as a deterrent and did not intend to use it...initially.]]
* FrenchJerk: Complete with FunetikAksent.
* WellIntentionedExtremist

!!General Grievous

* BadBoss: He kills some droids for interrupting his monologue.
* FinalSpeech: Gets a long one.
* GeneralRipper
* LargeHam
* ManInTheMachine
* [[spoiler:NotSoHarmlessVillain: Went from human, if CloudCuckoolander PresidentEvil variant, [[AscendedExtra Chancellor Valorum]] to... this.]]
* [[spoiler:OrganTheft: According to Grievous, he has Qui-Gon's [[TongueTrauma tongue]], Dooku's heart, and Zam Wessel's [[EyeScream eyes]]. Literally.]]
* WhamLine: [[SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay "Cyborgs. Under. My. Command".]]
* WickedCultured: Recites poetry during the first part of his duel with Obi-Wan.
* YoureInsane: Called out on this by Obi-Wan/Ben.

!!Mace Windu

* CaptainOblivious
* CloudCuckooLander
* DeadpanSnarker: In response to Anakin's cryptic comments.
* [[spoiler:ManchurianAgent: Controlled by the Trade Federation.]]

!!The Clones

* CloningBlues: Apparently averted. They don't seem to mind their status very much.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Also averted [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0675.html here]]. They not only manage to successfully avoid shooting the droids but also kill most of the rebels.
** For some reason, however, Obi-Wan still says that they're "rubbish" shots, and also applies this to their "clone-father", Jango. This is probably due to Ben's absence and lack of information, however.
* WouldNotShootACivilian: They deliberately avoid shooting the droids in the middle of a firefight.

!!Darth Vader

* BadBoss: Instructs his subordinates to execute themselves should they prove to be incompetent.
* CoolHelmet: Oh, come on, it's ''Vader''.
* TheCorrupter: One of his goals seems to be making Leia fall to the dark side. He is delighted when she turns down his offer to [[WeCanRuleTogether join him and rule the Galaxy]] and spits on him, because [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0784.html she gave in to her anger]].
* DarkIsEvil: [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0676.html Lampshaded]].
** ObviouslyEvil: Also lampshaded in the same strip.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Set up as one before ''Episode III'' ended.
* {{Jerkass}}: Forcechokes Motti not because he got insulted by him or anything, but simply because Motti pointed out that Vader shouldn't kill his staff for making mistakes.
* TheManBehindTheMan: It turns out that just about everything the GM had Vader say or do was being [[spoiler:dictated to him by Annie.]] Finally, the GM just has Annie play Vader outright [[spoiler:because he's gotten sick and tired of all these text messages.]]
* MoralEventHorizon: InUniverse, his destruction of Naboo with the Peace Moon is considered this by the players. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even]] [[TokenEvilTeammate Pete]] calls him an "utter frakking bastard" for it.
* NeverMyFault: As revealed in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0840.html episode 840]].
* TheOtherDarrin: The GM plays him early on Episode IV after Annie plays him from I through III. He later gives the role back to Annie.
* YouHaveFailedMe: This one orders subordinates to execute themselves. According to Motti, he does it so often that they had to replace half the workforce during construction of the Peace Moon, putting its completion years behind schedule.

!!Grand Moff Tarkin

* AntiVillain: Seemingly a Type III or IV.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He objects to Vader's destruction of Naboo via Death Star. Keep in mind that in the original, ''he'' was the one that ordered the Death Star to fire.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Compared to [[BadBoss Darth Vader]]. He thinks that the very [[EarthShatteringKaboom use]] of the Peace Moon will negate its use as a deterrent.

!!Owen and Beru Lars

* CrazySurvivalist: In addition to surrounding the moisture farm with guns, they also tell Adam not to look up at the sky, among other things. When Adam is told about the rebellion and empire, Owen tells him to melt down the droids, who are telling "crazy lies, spread by outside folk". Even Vader [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0736.html was impressed]] by their defensive arsenal.
* KilledOffForReal: As of [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0735.html Episode 735]].
* ProperlyParanoid: The specific details of their paranoia may actually pan out, given how the story goes.

!!Chewbacca

* BerserkButton: [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0794.html Don't ever]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0806.html call him]] a Wookiee-gram.
* DeadpanSnarker: Thanks to his partner's insane antics.
* DumpStat: [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0749.html Jim revealed]] that he made Chewbacca high in everything he perceived as dump stats. The result of this is that Chewbacca is not only able to speak but is in fact quite eloquent and refined.
* GenreSavvy: In [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0778.html Episode 778]], this is how he deals with Pete, in place of [[spoiler:"Let the Wookie win." He puts a cursed coin in the pouch of his own character in TabletopGames just so that KleptomaniacHero types who would kill him for his own loot would get the curse in return, needing for them to bargain with him for resurrection just to get rid of it.]]
** In [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0806.html Episode 806]], while pretending to be prisoner, he deliberately loosens his restraints in anticipation of a possible martial engagement.
* HypercompetentSidekick: More competent than "Greedo"/Han, at least. The two seem to get along most of the time, though Chewbacca does occasionally get annoyed when his partner does something stupid, like [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0755.html thoughtlessly lowering their remuneration]].
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness
* TheUnintelligible: Surprisingly, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0749.html averted]].

!!Han Solo

* AcePilot: Of the ''Millennium Falcon'', apparently.
* BaitAndSwitch: Since Greedo is [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0112.html killed]] by Anakin in an AccidentalMurder, the actual Greedo in Episode IV is given the name Han Solo, who is faced with "Greedo" (Jim as the original Han Solo) in the bar at Mos Eisley.
* CoolStarship: The ''Millennium Falcon'', before it is... [[DeadPersonImpersonation acquired]] by "Greedo".
* TheDogShotFirst: His encounter is a play on this. Did Han shoot first, or Greedo? [[MathematiciansAnswer Yes.]]
* VillainousFriendship: Seemingly with Jabba the Hutt.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: According to Jabba the Hutt (which is why "Greedo" was able to impersonate him despite looking nothing like him).

!!Jabba the Hutt

* AffablyEvil: Jabba seems to be rather friendly. Then again, he does not know about "Greedo"'s DeadPersonImpersonation as of yet.
* VillainousFriendship: Seemingly with the original Han Solo.

!!General Jan Dodonna

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Which makes his briefing on the attack against the Death Star almost impossible to understand. Ben (as Chewbacca) has to translate each sentence in mundane, straightforward terms for the other [=PCs=].
