Re: Xfiend's Reboot Character Workshop

Addendum: Something that I think DID work: Garrett's extreme force insensitivity. It was a fun thought-experiment, the whole "is actually hard to find if you're a Jedi" thing. Plus, being numb to telepathy meant he often missed out on "I'm telling you IN YOUR MIND" stuff. And, it was always fun to s...

Well, the purpose for this is for people to ponder the reintroduction of rebooted characters.
