Jedi Order

    Zolph Vaelor 

Zolph Vaelor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zolph_vaelor_cropped.jpg

The lead protagonist of Paranormalities. Shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong war, he lost both of his parents in a "pirate" attack as he was about to be accepted into Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy. Five years later, he then comes face to face with the same group responsible for his orphaning: the Valkoran Empire. Meanwhile, the Valkoran and another group villainous group known as the Forceless Collective have taken a special interest in Zolph.

  • Anguished Declaration of Love: He doesn't confess his true feelings for Dynn Manthis until her death.
  • An Arm and a Leg: He gets his right arm cut off by Maesterus on Kratzar.
    • In the Dark Side cave on Dagobah, he hallucinates having his prosthetic arm torn off (with the nerves connecting it being torn) by a psychotic Dynn Manthis.
  • Anti-Hero: He tries to live up to the Jedi's reputation, but the actions of the Valkoran Empire and Forceless Collective have soured him to the point where he can't always live up to it.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: He seems to have become one late in Episode II. After he's defeated Stythanyx, the latter asks him why the choose to continue living. Zolph answers that he doesn't think there's a universal meaning to life and decides to create his own meaning. A nice contrast compared to the hell he went through in the wake of Dynn's death.
  • Artificial Limbs: After losing his right arm on Kratzar, Zolph requests a very specific prosthetic arm that not only has a strength enhancer, but also doesn't get shut down by EMPs. However, it takes about six months for it be properly tested, attached, and settled.
  • Badass Longcoat: He likes to wear a dark grey jacket out int the field most of the time.
  • Badass Transplant: Said arm also has enhanced strength, as well as the ability to Megaton Punch.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Pulls a heroic variant of this on Forceless Archfiend Cinydra, whose sister he killed three months prior to encountering him. Justified to the fact that not only has he killed a lot of Archfiends, he didn't hear the names of all of them - Orotice being one of them - sometimes because they never talk or are never name-called to Zolph. He doesn't remember her until Cinydra brings up the planet they fought on.
  • Butt-Monkey: The galaxy (initially) only seems to remember him for freighter-flying that has become a Memetic Mutation in-universe. He also runs into at least one weird thing every mission he's on. He is a bit of an Iron Butt Monkey too, as he's had several injuries over the course of the story, such as being nailed to a wall by Maesterus twice, getting eaten, shot with tranquilizers, shot in the legs, getting his right arm cut off, getting blown up by (and surviving) an anti-vehicle missile, thrown through windows, etc.
  • Captain Crash: The galaxy does not want to let him fly any YT-series freighter because of an incident where he lost the main body of one due to its asymmetrically-placed cockpit. Of course, he's not that bad when flying other stuff.
  • Character Development: He starts off incredibly resentful towards Maesterus, but he gets less angry about it in his later encounters, eventually to the point of putting that resentment aside once he realizes that vengeance is not all that great and that there are worse creatures in the galaxy than him.
  • Chewing the Scenery: Not usually, but he's prone to outbursts if something unexpected happens or works against him.
  • The Chosen One: Subverted and deconstructed. As far as he and the rest of the galaxy are concerned, he's just any other Jedi with varying levels of respect, but the Forceless Collective sees him as such due to his immunity to their Demonic Possession]], and he's Number One on their to-kill list because of this.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Deconstructed early in Episode II. He's only playing hero so often as an excuse to avoid bringing up his mental health issues and stay away from the Force Sensitives who can sense his emotions.
  • Cool Starship: He gets a modified X-Wing (and a psychotic R9-unit) in Episode II. He later names it the Manthis in honor of his (seemingly) late lover.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He's also willing to use blasters and grenades in a fight.
  • Cursed with Awesome: He's immune to Forceless possession and is capable of weaponizing any Black Matter that gets into his body. The downside is that he is at the top of the Collective's to-kill list because of it and weaponizing it has the potential to turn him insane if not properly controlled.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Aside from his parents dying as a result of a Valkoran attack causing him to initially resent Maesterus, the possession and death of Dynn Manthis not only causes him a severe amount of trauma, but it also encourages him to prevent any more Forceless possessions, kill those who are possessed, get the Valkoran to understand their mistakes, and defeat the Forceless Collective once and for all.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: While Zolph's Black Berserker looks like a Forceless-possessed creature and fueled by his negative emotions (what fuels the Dark Side), his goals and motivations are still the same. He is just very aggressive in how he goes about it.
  • Dating Catwoman: Between him and Dynn Manthis after she sides with the Valkoran. However, this is subverted with the revelation that she was actually a Reverse Mole working for the Alliance.
  • Deadpan Snarker: With all the strange stuff he has to deal with, he's become pretty universe-weary. Even his otherwise stoic Silver Seraph form retains some of his snark.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Killing Forceless Archfiends(or preventing their summoning) is one of his jobs.
  • Death Seeker: His early encounters with the apparition of Dynn Manthis are a result of him being subconsciously suicidal, to the point that the hallucinations could actually kill him. Thankfully for him, he has had people who care about him bale him out of these hallucinations before they could kill him. After the Fafniros mission, he broke away from this mentality.
  • Easily Forgiven: While Zolph partially blames himself for Dynn's death (since he provided the killing blow and paved the way for the Forceless Arm to be grafted onto her in the first place), Dynn herself as well as her cousin, Hiriss Moraana, forgive him for it, stating he did what he had to do, and that she would have preferred to die than remain a helpless meat-puppet. Sadly, that doesn't make him feel much better about it.
  • Eye Scream: Subverted. In the cave on Dagobah, he has a hallucination about him getting his eyelids cut open by a psychotic transformed Dynn Manthis so he's forced to look at her.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He cut Va'Za the Hutt's stomach open with his lightsaber after he sensed he ate his slave girl, resulting in him dying from his injuries, and he was willing to let Belluzub just die in the destruction of the Death Star Forge. He was also almost willing to let Facadma be slowly killed by the living Force ripping her apart from the inside, but ultimately decides to just kill her quickly. In his Black Berserker form, he is even more brutal.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Downplayed. Since Grein is his distant ancestor, he's technically part Chiss. However, the Chiss genes have thinned out over time, resulting in him being almost pure human.
  • Heartbroken Badass: After Dynn's death.
  • Heroic BSoD: He's had quite a few of these:
    • Has one during Episode I - Chapter 6, when he and Grein are forced to kill a Forceless-possessed mother and her child during the invasion of Sleheyron. Prior to this, the other possession victims they were killing were mere gangsters.
    • Has another one after he is forced to kill a Forceless-possessed Dynn Manthis, and goes on a rather disturbing killing spree against the Valkoran forces on Krantisi. Once Grein lectures him on how meaningless his massacre was, he starts crying not just because of what he did, but because of how much hell the Forceless Collective made his life. Grein eventually calms him down by letting him see Dynn one last time before she actually dies.
    • Happens again early on in Episode II on Dagobah. According to his peers, Zolph had been accepting missions 24/5 ever since the Battle of Krantisi to avoid questioning. Once he heads into a certain cave on the planet, he encounters an apparition of Dynn. His initial reaction is to deny the illusion, but that only provokes it into transforming into her Forceless-mutated form and violently immobilizing him, and not only his he terrified, he starts crying once it starts asking why it killed her. It may have all been an illusion, but it was real enough to him to have almost killed him. And it goes to a whole new level in "The Damaged". The hallucinations get less severe once he's gotten past his subconscious suicidal thoughts in "Resolve", but he now has some fears that the Forceless Collective could win and everyone else he knows could end up like Dynn.
    • In Chapter 13 of Episode II, he's forced to witness the total annihilation of Christophsis on the planet's surface.
  • Hour of Power: The transformations he takes on from Force-channeling only lasts until the Forceless symbiote he has absorbed dissipates.
  • Idiot Ball: Despite being cunning at times, he occasionally has his lapses in judgment. Lampshaded by Machinus in Episode II.
    Machinus: Sef. Your descendant's being an idiot again.
  • If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: Subverts this with Belluzub after the latter pushed one of his Berserk Buttons. Zolph catches onto his plan to make him fall to the Dark Side and refuses to strike him down in cold blood while angry. However, he knows sparing his life would be counterproductive to why he came to the Death Star Forge in the first place; instead, he just locks him in a conveniently-placed force cage and leaves him to die in the impending destruction. Of course, he gets out later and is forced to fight him again anyway.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: He blames himself for Dynn's possession and subsequent death by his hands. This makes him all the more determined to keep anyone else from being possessed or Mercy Kill them if they are.
  • It Gets Easier: The first time he killed an innocent Forceless possession host, he was shell-shocked. A few more traumatic incidents later, including with Dynn Manthis, he's shown to be less hesitant to kill Forceless hosts.
    • This also applies to his Force-channeling, which takes a lot of mental fortitude to use without turning into a violent berserker. The more he uses it and becomes more familiar with it, the easier it is for him to control.
  • Laser Blade: He carries an aqua-colored lightsaber. He can form them from nothing in Force-channeling transformations.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Descendant and ancestor, more accurately. Maesterus lampshades this when he notices Zolph's second lightsaber hilt, and this is before The Reveal.
  • Megaton Punch: He gains the ability to do this once he gets his new arm.
  • The Musketeer: In addition to his lightsaber, he's known to use a blaster and explosives.
  • My Greatest Failure: He sees his inability to prevent Dynn's possession and her death as this.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!:
    • He accidentally set the Conqueror on a collision course with Acropolis Station when he dismembered Admiral Gravlek. Both of them lampshade it, but it gets undone before any serious damage could be caused. Implied to happened plenty of times during the Vong War.
    • If he had known what would happen to her after, he never would have cut Dynn's arm off on Tatooine. Or later, he would have cut the Forceless arm off her as soon as he saw it on Polus.
  • One-Winged Angel: As his Forceless immunity has developed in his bloodline with every generation, his body can now convert Forceless symbiotes into Force energy, and use said energy to temporarily transform himself. However, the transformation has some downsides. While the Black Berserker form is powerful, it isn't as powerful as it gets and is prone to aggression. The Silver Seraph, while requiring more emotional restraint and determination, brings Zolph to new heights.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Goes on one against the Valkoran forces on Krantisi after being forced to kill a Forceless-possessed Dynn Manthis for making a mess of his life by killing both his parents and turning Dynn into a monster (when, in reality, only specific individuals in the organization were involved in both of those). Grein eventually snaps him out of it.
  • Scars Are Forever: He gets some toothmarks in his neck from Dynn's Forceless Arm biting into it. And he gets another on his neck from Mortaqa's ligthscythe after the annihilation of Christophsis.
  • Screaming at Squick: His reaction to learning about Grein's job (and the clients she had to work for) while she was living on Sleheyron. He does it again when he combines it with the knowledge of Grein being his distant ancestor.
  • Shoot the Dog: For him, killing some of the more innocent Forceless possession victims. Justified in that there's nothing else that can be done for them. Notable people he's had to shoot so far include Dynn Manthis and Mandoculus.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: In "Resolve", he gives a simple "Kriff you" to another hallucination of Forceless Dynn Manthis and cuts her down when she shows him the possibility that the Forceless Collective could succeed in conquering the galaxy.
  • Stepford Smiler:
    • He becomes one during his Roaring Rampage of Revenge. He eventually snaps out of it.
    • Taken even further in Episode II. He's been taking missions 24/5 just to distract himself from his painful memories of being forced to kill Dynn Manthis. This bites him in the ass when he goes into the cave on Dagobah.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: When his Berserk Button has been pushed really hard, his brown eyes turn to this, indicating that he's slipping dangerously close to The Dark Side. His eyes change back to their default color once he realizes what he's doing.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The amount of suffering he goes through from his early-to-late teens is staggering. First, he loses both of his parents in a Valkoran pirate attack. Once the Valkoran War begins, his longtime friend Dynn Manthis goes MIA and learns one month later that she made a Face–Heel Turn. More than six months later, Dynn gets possessed by a Forceless symbiote and Zolph is forced to kill her, leaving him traumatized for another six months, and almost getting killed by Force-based hallucinations of her due to his self-loathing. Then at the Battle of Christophsis, Emperor Valkor physically tortures him by squeezing on his heart - hospitalizing him for one month - and leaves Zolph helpless to witness him ordering Mortaqa to kill everyone on the planet except for him and the Valkoran forces.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Even by Star Wars standards, he's not dealing with anything remotely normal. In the five years between the prologue and first chapter of Episode I, he's had to deal with masochistic, dogmatic aliens with organic technology. After that, he runs into an undying soldier, a Force sensitive (and villainous possible Light-Sider) man that can shoot spikes out of his palms (and grows wings later), an eccentric mercenary in touch with the fourth wall, and an army of Eldritch Abominations among other things.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: If he's feeling any strong emotions or doubts (especially those that fuel the Dark Side) when he's Force-channeling, that emotion will dominate his psyche while transformed, turning him into a psychotic Knight Templar obsessed with killing all Forceless or anyone who has wronged him. However, the more times he uses it, the more control he gains, and learns to willingly use it to cleanse Forceless-possession victims of Black Matter, and by the time he fights a One-Winged Angel Valkor on Ockla Prime, he's more confident in his control of it and kills Valkor's avatar. At the Battle of Blenjeel, it's shown that he still cannot use this power so casually, as he can still turn into the Black Berserker if he Force-channels while scared or angry (or as he worries, while going on a power-trip).
  • You Killed My Father: His initial attitude towards Maesterus. He eventually gets over it once he realizes it's not entirely Maesterus's fault, that revenge is overrated, and there are worse beings than him. As such, this attitude shifts to Valkor instead.

    Luke Skywalker 

Luke Skywalker

Hero of the Galactic Civil War (and the original Star Wars trilogy), he is now the Grand Master of the New Jedi Order, now stationed on Ossus after the loss of the Massassi Temple on Yavin IV.

    Grein 

Ze'grein'aradi (Grein)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grein_cropped.jpg

A Force-sensitive purple-eyed Chiss that Zolph meets on Sleheyron, she knows a lot about the Forceless Collective. She acts as Zolph's second mentor and Mission Control at some points.

  • Defector from Decadence: She used to work with the Valkoran Empire until her sister was possessed by the Collective.
  • The Gadfly: Surprisingly for her, she acts like this when it comes to Zolph's flying accident.
  • Healing Factor: She can use her Force Liquefaction to reform body parts or cleanse herself of diseases. Of course, she has to reassimilate the lost body parts or some more water since it's part of her body mass.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: Lightsabers are already this, but hers has a laser cross-guard.
  • It Gets Easier: Given that she's had experience with Forceless possession already, she's learned to cope with killing possession hosts long before the events of the story. It's gotten to the point where she's come to accept that she must kill her own sister to spare her further suffering.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
    • Aside from her Sink-or-Swim Mentor status, she's more focused on escaping from Sleheyron with Zolph when the Forceless Collective invades the planet than helping evacuate the population, but only because she knows they can't save everyone. However, she did warn everyone at the Flying Lamp Cantina to evacuate ahead of time when the Collective's scouts showed up there to kill Zolph, and she and Zolph save as many people as they can while fleeing.
    • She also warns Zolph of the dangers of emotional attachments. When Zolph goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge after being forced to fatally wound Dynn Manthis, she promises Dynn to bring him back to his senses and lets him see her one last time before she dies.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Her experiences with the Forceless Collective and her time with the Valkoran Empire have made her see the worst the universe has to offer, but she refuses to succumb to the worst.
  • Last of His Kind: She and Emilin are among the only known purple-eyed Chiss left in the galaxy since the red-eyed Chiss wiped the rest of them out in a race purge.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: She was married to Seferin Vaelor (AKA Maesterus), so that makes her Zolph's distant grandmother.
  • Making a Splash: She can liquefy herself or individual parts of her body through a never-before-seen Force power. Turns out this power originated from a galaxy Valkor conquered.
  • Mama Bear: After she's revealed to be Zolph's distant grandmother, her protective behavior towards him is easily interpreted as this.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Like most Chiss, her eyes have no pupils. What makes her particularly distinct is that her eyes are purple instead of red.
  • Multicolored Hair: Dark blue with teal highlights. The highlights are later revealed to be artificial.
  • Not So Stoic: When she starts to display actual emotions, you know something's up. When Masochus tried to taunt her over the fate of her sister and claiming that she's given up hope of salvation, she snapped and attempted to boil him alive.
  • Older Than They Look: She looks like she's in her mid-20's. She's actually 41. Justified in that Force Sensitives don't age as fast and Chiss as a species tend to be in good shape. Lampshaded by Zolph and Dynn. And that's not counting her actual chronological age.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Usually played for laughs when she makes a Ship Tease on Zolph and Dynn. Otherwise, if she breaks from her usual stoicism, you know something is wrong.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Her character art usually shows her with a green scarf.
  • Shipper on Deck: In Episode I - Chapter 8, she, of all people, does this to Zolph and Dynn once she learns of their previous history.
  • Shoot the Dog: Killing some of the more innocent Forceless possession victims. Justified in that there isn't really anything else she can do for them and Zolph doesn't learn to use his Force-channeling powers to save others from possession until near the end of Episode II (and using that power itself is risky enough for him).
  • Shout-Out: Even through cross-guarded lightsabers existed before Paranormalities and The Force Awakens, her saber is specifically inspired by Henry Cooldown's.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: She usually lets Zolph handle stuff on his own, as she doesn't want him to be too dependent on her, especially when it comes to Archfiends. She will step in if Zolph really does need help.
  • Stealth Mentor: She deliberately let Hydrojus puppeteer her to test Zolph's resolve for taking down possessed allies. He managed to Take a Third Option though.
  • Training from Hell: She didn't learn her Force liquefaction willingly. Valkor forced her to learn it and in doing so, she was stuck as an immobile water puddle for two weeks before she learned how to reform herself. This is also why she's unwilling to teach Zolph the same ability.
  • Trauma Conga Line: She's experienced several lifetimes' worth of pain. First, she was subject to racial persecution within her own species and her father was executed because of said persecution, forcing her family and the rest of the purple-eyed Chiss to flee the Ascendancy. After that, she was exiled from the Jedi Order for falling in love with another Jedi, learned that the new Emperor she was serving under intended to conquer the galaxy and possess everyone in it, her sister was possessed by an Archfiend, and she's forced to flee from the Valkoran Empire while pregnant, not seeing her husband again for thousands of years. During the four-thousand years before the story, she's haunted by being unable to save her sister and has to endure knowing that she will outlive her son and her grandchildren just because she wants to ensure the Forceless Collective's defeat. By the time of the Valkoran War, she's become very cynical, seeing no perceivable hope for Forceless-possession victims besides death. When the Forceless Collective invades Sleheyron, she knows she and Zolph won't be able to save everyone on the planet. When her sister is finally brought out as a weapon of mass destruction (that kill her with little effort if she got close), she's only able to put Emilin out of her misery through a proxy, and when she's finally close to having a heartfelt reunion with her husband, he is killed right in front of her.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: After escaping from Sleheyron, Zolph calls her out for giving her knowledge about Terraris's location to Girdretto, who then gave it to Va'Za the Hutt, just so she could find a candidate for taking out the Forceless Collective. In the process, this led to an increased crime rate on Tatooine for time, even by the world's usual standards.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Two of her major regrets about trying to prolong her life were not getting to see her other descendants grow up and outliving her generation.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Subverted. She normally wouldn't, but if the child is a Forceless possession host, there isn't really anything else she can do for them.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: With teal highlights. The dark blue part is natural for her since she's a Chiss.

    R9-C 4 

R9-C4 (Arnine-Seefor)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seefor_cropped.jpg

Zolph Vaelor's personal astromech droid for his modified X-Wing introduced in Episode II. She's unusually sadistic for an astromech droid.

  • Action Girl: Usually Zolph's co-pilot for his X-Wing, but she can still do a lot of damage with or without him. She can even be dangerous without a starfighter to control.
  • Affably Evil: She's very cheerful and fun-loving, but her ideas of fun also includes killing people in creatively sadistic ways.
  • Ax-Crazy: Out of Zolph's allies, she's one of the most unhinged.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Being a droid that was commissioned by Girdretto (and being finished after his death), she is only a year old by the time Episode II roles around.
  • Badass Adorable: If you can get past the psychopathy.
  • Beat Still, My Heart: Her character art shows her holding a torn-out human heart.
  • Blood Knight: She has more in common with an assassin droid than an astromech.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She seems to have this attitude in regards to Zolph's interactions with Hiriss.
  • Cute and Psycho: She's an astromech droid. She also takes glee in murdering Valkoran troopers in horrible but hilarious ways.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Through all those translated beeps, she's a very snippy droid.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She is completely horrified when she witnesses everyone on Christophsis - save for Zolph, Grein and the Valkoran forces - die to the point that she refuses to bring a trophy like she normally would.
  • Evil Laugh: She's capable of making a high-pitched one out of his beeps.
  • The Gadfly: Tends to tease Zolph for his Idiot Hero moments. She also teases both him and Hiriss Moraana when they are cramped inside the fighter, pretending that she's going to activate the ejection seat on her own whim.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath:
    • Somehow, she can make ripping someone's spine out and bludgeoning them with it funny.
    • She also pretended she was going to eject both Zolph and Hiriss (when the latter was sitting in the former's lap) out of the fighter mid-flight.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Outside of combat situations, when she's involved in conversations with people she hasn't met before, she tends to label them with derogatory descriptions of their appearance that could be considered racist, such as "Green-skinned lady" for Hiriss Moraana (a human-Mirialan hybrid), "Shriveled Masked General" for General Ven Choi (a Kel Dor), and "Hulking, masked, half-naked black man" for Juganak (a dark-skinned Miraluka).
  • Killer Rabbit: You don't expect astro-droids to be that dangerous or sadistic.
  • Kill It with Fire: She's armed with a flamethrower. Zolph didn't know about it until the Battle of Mt. Yoda.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Despite her Blood Knight tendencies, even she knows that she's no match for a freakishly strong Force user. Naturally, she decides to just let Zolph handle Juganak himself.
  • Mook Horror Show: She's known for orchestrating these from time to time. Even Separatist Commando Droids will beg for mercy when attacked by her. Played for laughs.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Outside the astromech socket, she's capable of tearing a man's spine out (somehow without killing them) and beating him to death with it.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: A heroic variant. She just wants to have fun, but some of her ideas of fun include blowing things up, lighting people on fire and tearing their spinal cords out. This is also subverted in that while she is literally one year old, droids are generally expected to behave like adults as soon as they come off the assembly line.
  • Robo Speak: Droid Speak + Faux Mathematical Equations = R9-C4's speech pattern.
  • Robot Buddy: She's not the type you would expect a Jedi to be having around
  • Robotic Psychopath: She was originally built as a criminal sabotage droid for Girdretto, she has developed a psychotic personality comparable to assassin droids. Zolph bought her after Girdretto kicked the bucket.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Revealed early in Chapter 2 of Episode II. However, it took Zolph three months to figure this out.
  • Token Evil Teammate: However, she won't kill anyone that's on her side.
  • Too Soon: In-universe. She refrains from bringing Zolph any removed body parts after she witnesses an entire planet die for no apparent reason.
  • Tsundere: She's very snarky towards Zolph and everyone else in general, but loyal nonetheless.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Invoked, even though droids are technically genderless. Her color scheme consists of black and cyan, but she has feminine programming. Most would assume she's male at first glance.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With both Zolph and Hiriss due to her psychotic nature.

    Hiriss Moraana 

Hiriss Moraana

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hiriss_cropped.jpg

A red-haired half-human half-Mirialan Jedi that has been at the Academy on Ossus longer than Zolph. She is Dynn Manthis's cousin.

Galactic Alliance Military

    Ven Choi 

General Ven Choi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/general_choi_cropped.jpg

A Kel Dor Alliance general. Has worked with Zolph Vaelor in a few campaigns involving the Forceless Archfiends.

  • Badass Normal: Subverted. He is a Jedi from the old Order, but he barely got any training done (and didn't get to build a lightsaber) when the Jedi Purge started. His powers are merely limited to sensing and military planning. He can still put up a fight though and has athletic capabilities on par with a Jedi.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: He takes a Cyanide Pill before Valkor can eat him. Understandable considering that those eaten by Valkor or Forceless in general don't become one with the Force.
  • Cool Mask: Typical of the Kel Dor species, as his breathes a helium-nitrogen mix. Valkor uses this against him when he tears it off.
  • The Empath: He can tell when his allies are emotionally troubled. Notable when Zolph figures out that Dynn is on Polus and when his men are traumatized by their encounter with Hydrojus.
  • Expy: Basically an under-trained Plo Koon.
  • A Father to His Men: After the death of Hydrojus, he orders (even if they're desperate to end the Archfiends once and for all) the rest of his men that came with Zolph and Grein take a one-month leave after some of them were shaken up witnessing the gruesome death of one of their comrades by the Archfiend making his insides cave in on him. He does not want his troops scared out of their wits. He also takes Valkor on one on one when he starts torturing Zolph, even though this is the last thing he ever does.
  • Four-Star Badass: Not only is he a decorated tactician, he was able to briefly go toe-to-toe with Valkor.
  • Mission Control: He serves as an out-in-the-field example to Zolph when Luke's not around.
  • The Musketeer: He wields both a blaster pistol and a vibrosword.
  • No Biochemical Barriers: Averted and exploited against him. Kel Dor breathe a helium-nitrogen mix and oxygen is toxic to them, forcing him to rely on a breathing mask. Valkor takes advantage of this by simply ripping his mask off.
  • Old Soldier: He was once a veteran of the Galactic Civil War and now a strategist.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: The well-being of those serving under him are just as important to him as his objectives.
  • Sacrificial Lion: His death serves to enforce that Emperor Valkor is done playing around with Zolph.

    Cephal 

Admiral Cephal

A Mon Calamari fleet admiral. Aided in the Battle of Krantisi and Taris.

  • Expy: Being a heroic Mon Calamari fleet admiral, he's one of Admiral Ackbar (especially since in the Legends timeline in which Paranormalities takes place, Ackbar has since died).
  • A Father to His Men: During the space battle over Blenjeel, he requests Zolph destroy the Forceless-possessed torpedo frigates not only to eliminate a strategic threat, but to spare his men the horror of being turned against their allies.
  • Fish People: He's a Mon Calamari, so it comes with the territory.
  • Four-Star Badass: He's participated in many battles throughout the Valkoran War, and even survived the arrival of the Forceless Collective at the end of the war.
  • Mission Control: He occasionally serves this role to Zolph in naval battles.

    Menbar Mun 

Menbar Mun

A Sullustan operative that Zolph was assigned to protect from bounty hunters due to having information on him. He is eventually captured and loses that information.

  • He Knows Too Much: Maesterus's pretense for sending bounty hunters after him. In reality, he captured Menbar to use as bait to lure Zolph into a trap.
  • Human Popsicle: Or Sullustan in this case. Gahmah Raan froze him in carbonite on Muunilinst to be transported to Kratzar.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Gets his memories of his intel on the Valkoran wiped clean by Doctor Thilid after being interrogated.
  • Live-Action Escort Mission: He becomes the subject of one for Zolph on Muunilinst. Zolph lampshades the common pet peeves with the video game version of this trope when he instructs Mun to not do anything stupid. He avoids the problems with this trope by staying out of Zolph's way in combat.
  • Properly Paranoid: He knew he would be hunted down as soon as he got the intel he needed, and requested protection.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Defied. He's not only a military scout and has some degree of combat training, he knows not to get in Zolph's way when he's fighting the other bounty hunters.

    Besh Squad 

Captain Xadisall Varessi, Patcher, Banir Keeti (Bad Kitty), Boltz and Spectre

A racially diverse elite squad of Alliance commandos serving under General Ven Choi. They aided Zolph in the infiltration of the Valkoran warship, Doomsayer. Members include Xadisall Varessi, Bad Kitty, Boltz, Patcher, and Spectre.

  • Adorkable: Being the nerds of the team, Boltz and Patcher have their moments. For example, Patcher for pointing out that Bad Kitty is heavy due to his muscle mass and the gear he's carrying and not being fat, and Boltz being disappointed with Zolph for giving the Force explanation for how Arcidus was able to fake Zolph's death.
  • Badass Bookworm: Both Patcher and Boltz, the latter especially due to his status as a Gand Findsman. Boltz was even able to kill a Valkoran Exo-trooper by sneakily rigging his suit to explode.
  • Badass Normal: All five of them. Xad was notably able to kill a Valkoran Force acolyte single-handed.
  • The Big Guy: Bad Kitty. He is the squad's heavy weapons guy.
  • Cat Folk: Bad Kitty is a Cathar.
  • Cold Sniper: Spectre is the squad's stealth specialist and markswoman.
  • Combat Medic: Patcher
  • Deadpan Snarker: Xad and Bad Kitty.
  • Disney Death: Played for Laughs in Boltz's case in that Zolph is the only one that thinks Boltz needs medical attention since he lost his respirator mask (anything that isn't ammonia is hazardous to Gand lungs). Boltz is actually a lungless Gand and does not need to breathe in the first place.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Bad Kitty does not like to be called by his real name, Banir Keeti.
  • Electronic Eye: Spectre has one.
  • The Engineer: Boltz.
  • Facial Markings: Xadisall has these, since he is a Mirialan.
  • Fish People: Patcher is a Nautolan.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Bad Kitty is more of a lion than a kitten.
  • Friend or Foe: Early in Episode II, one of Boltz's turrets targets and shoots down a Valkoran Speeder Zolph is driving. They apologize to him for the accident, with Boltz claiming that he's still programming it to recognize exposed riders. And all played for laughs.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Boltz. He even built a machine that can shoot down portable missiles.
  • The Ghost: According to her brief profile on the TFN forums' OC index thread, a lot of people can go years without knowing that Spectre has always been part of the squad due to her operating behind scenes and her general lack of presence.
  • Improvised Weapon: Boltz uses his own respirator mask as a makeshift ammonia bomb after it gets damaged.
  • Insectoid Alien: Boltz is a Gand.
  • Jump Physics: As a Kyuzo, Spectre specializes at this, which allowed her to get back to Rwookrorro quickly to report an impending Valkoran attack.
  • Knife Nut: Spectre is armed with a combat knife.
  • Large Ham: Bad Kitty can be this when he gets into intense combat situations.
  • Little "No": Spectre gives one when she learns about General Choi's death.
  • Nice Hat: Spectre uses the same type of hat normally used by Kyuzo.
  • Not So Above It All: Xadisall isn't afraid to voice his personal opinions on corrupt politicians from his own government and finding amusement from their misfortune in private.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: All of the members of the squad minus Xadisall (who is usually just called Xad), Bad Kitty (who does not like to be called by his real name), and Boltz (whose nickname became part of his real name due to Gands having to earn their names).
  • Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits: They're a very quirky bunch to say the least.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Invoked with Spectre in "Resolve". She's always been part of the squad; Zolph just hadn't seen her until then.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Bad Kitty swears this on the Valkoran after the death of General Choi and the annihilation of Christophsis.
  • The Smart Guy: Boltz is the tech guy for the team.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Spectre is the only female member of the squad.
  • The Quiet One: Boltz and Spectre.
  • Third-Person Person: Boltz, as part of Gand culture dictating that they have to earn their names and the right to use personal pronouns. He seems to have taken his own nickname as his name. He does not speak at all to make the infiltration to go as smoothly as possible.
  • A Wizard Did It: Boltz isn't particularly fond of pulling the Force card to explain something unusual (even when it really is the explanation). However, he willingly accepts it when he sees the results of the Christophsis massacre.
