LUKE SKYWALKER
but i was going into tosche station to pick up some power converters


Played by Dharke

Fandom: Star Wars (“official” canon).
Age: Fifty-three. Nineteen.
Species: Force sensitive human.
Gender: Male.
Canon Point: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (following his talk with Yoda). Luke de-aged into his nineteen year old Episode IV - New Hope self after falling into a magic puberty lake (link to one shot).
NPC Companions: R2-D2 (or “Artoo”). Luke’s nine year old father brought Artoo into Pandora with him. Luke (re)inherited the droid after the vines took his father away again.

SKILLS & ABILITIES


Force Abilities
The magic puberty lake stripped Luke of his expertise in the “Force”, which is a form of mystical energy that, according to Obi-Wan Kenobi, “surrounds us, penetrates us and binds the galaxy together”.

Luke is (re)learning the following skills:
• Moving objects without touching them.
• Perceiving his surroundings with his mind rather than his vision. This grants him extra alertness and accuracy, which is especially useful when flying his X-wing and/or firing at a target.
• Sensing the mental or emotional states of others (human or otherwise).
• Making people think, do or say things. This only works on those who have weak minds.
“Force shift”. Can change into cool animals, like a- No. That doesn’t exist.

And he's susceptible to:
• Experiencing the occasional premonition.
• Hearing and/or seeing Jedi who have died and become Force ghosts.

Other Abilities
Luke is:
• An excellent pilot, thanks in part to his extrasensory awareness of his environment.
• Good at fixing or tinkering about with equipment. After losing his first lightsaber in The Empire Strikes Back, he built a new one from scratch.

Equipment
Lightsaber: The blade is green and made from plasma energy. It can cut through most things, including human limbs. The heat of the blade is so hot that it instantly cauterizes wounds.

Mechanical Hand: After losing his right hand in The Empire Strikes Back, Luke got himself a fake one that functions just as well as its flesh and blood counterpart. He usually wears a glove to hide his prosthetic hand.

X-Wing Starfighter: His spacecraft is equipped with deflector shields, two proton torpedo launchers and four laser cannons. It can jump into hyperspace faster than you can blink. After spending many years under the sea, it’s speckled in rust and not the most reliable craft, sometimes refusing to put up its shields, fire weapons or even start.

Artoo


Artoo is Luke's loyal friend. Being an astromech droid, he acts as a co-pilot on Luke’s X-wing, helping to control flight, perform basic repairs and calculate hyperspace jumps. Siri put it best in her app when she described Artoo as a swiss army knife in droid form. He can pull out handy and sometimes unexpected equipment from different compartments in his body, such as a small saw or electro-shock prod. Incapable of human speech, he communicates via a series of clicks, bleeps, warbles and similar sounds, known as binary.

WEAKNESSES


Monster Magnet: Dianogas, rancours and wampas. Young Luke always seems to attract hostile fauna with his presence alone (perhaps it’s the whining).

Clumsy: He's clumsy in a puppyish kind of way, hitting his head or falling on his ass at least once a day.

Rookie: He wouldn't stand a chance if another Force user decided to "Force choke" him to death, nor would he know how to ward off a mind controller or telepath. He’s in the middle of (re)learning how to fight (with or without his lightsaber).

Morality: He’s still a human at the end of the day. You don’t need any special weapons to kill him. Magic is also a foreign concept to him. He would have no defence against a magic user if they decided to click their fingers and turn him into, say, a "crabroach".


PERSONALITY

Luke’s gone from grumpy old fart to whiny space brat. Oh no! When will I app a more likeable version? He’s conscious of his transformation, but just can’t shake being angsty and annoying again!

He’s in the process of (re)learning to control his emotions, though often trips up and whinges about being a blond pretty boy. I mean, how awful. He switches from overconfident to underconfident, boasting about his piloting skills in one breath, then by the next, brooding over how it’s impossible to use the Force to lift his X-wing. Luke gets impatient and frustrated easily, more so when he remembers how he was a master of the Force before his accident. The temptation to give in to hate and fear and all things Dark Side of the Force is stronger now that he’s young again.

But it's unlikely he'll ever surrender to his darker emotions. Beneath the immaturity, his heart is that of the good guy. The hero. He’s an absolute asset to have on a mission, refusing to give up when things get tough. He'll raise people's spirits with his sickening optimism, perhaps by pointing out something positive or hopeful about the dire situation, no matter how small. Luke likewise tends to see the good in everybody, even if they’ve murdered countless innocent children and/or blown up whole planets. He won’t hesitate to help others in need, although this is sometimes bad, because he usually leaps in before he's got a solid plan of action. He also fails to see the repercussions of his well meaning help.

Talking of heroism, his youth's rekindled his desire to embark on exciting adventures and noble quests. He can no longer understand why he dedicated most of his life as a Jedi to collecting dusty old artefacts and pouring over rambling texts. As Yoda once (twice) griped at him, Luke spends too much time looking “to the future, the horizon”, instead of living in the present. If Yoda said that to him today, he'd come out with some whiny retort about being trapped in the past.

His youth’s also rekindled his interest in girls, although he feels like a failure whenever he tries to talk to them. Years of isolation on two islands have made him shy and awkward. If it should ever get as far as sex, he fears going to sleep young, then waking up old. But my God, wouldn’t that make a delightfully horrific thread?


OPTIONAL HISTORY

Episode III – Revenge of the Sith
Luke’s parents were Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker (otherwise known as the evil Darth Vader). Padmé died giving birth to Luke and his twin sister, Leia. To protect them, Senator Bail Organa adopted Leia and took her to his planet, Alderaan, while Luke was sent to Tatooine to live with his Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen.

Episode IV - A New Hope
With no knowledge of his true family, Luke grew up on his aunt and uncle’s moisture farm. He was dissatisfied with his lot in life and longed to have a bit more adventure and excitement.

They purchased two droids, C-P30 and R2-D2, from the Jawas. While cleaning Artoo, Luke accidentally triggered part of a holographic recording of Princess Leia (one of the leaders of a rebel movement against the Galactic Empire), requesting help from somebody named Obi-Wan Kenobi. Shortly afterwards, Artoo snuck off to find Obi-Wan.

Luke and Threepio went in search of Artoo, getting into trouble with Sand People, before finding him, as well as a hermit, Old Ben. It turned out that Ben was Obi-Wan and a former Jedi Knight (a peacekeeper that got their power from a mystical energy known as the Force). Luke also learnt from Obi-Wan that his father had not been a navigator on a spice freighter (like Uncle Owen had told him), but a Jedi Knight who’d fought alongside Obi-Wan and had died at Vader’s hands.

Artoo played Leia’s message to Luke and Obi-Wan, which revealed that she had obtained the plans of the Galactic Empire’s Death Star (a huge space station capable of destroying planets). Before being captured by Vader and the rest of the Imperial Starfleet, Leia had hidden the Death Star plans in Artoo’s memory. Her message concluded with her asking Obi-Wan to give them to her surrogate father on her home planet of Alderaan. Obi-Wan invited Luke to come with him, but he had to reluctantly decline because of his responsibilities to his family.

Upon returning to the moisture farm, Luke discovered the crispy bodies of Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen. They’d been murdered by Stormtroopers (white armoured soldiers sent to seek out Artoo and the plans). Luke no longer had any reason to resist the call of adventure and teamed up with Obi-Wan and the droids.

In Mos Eisley (a spaceport town), they negotiated a deal with the smuggler Han Solo and his Wookiee co-pilot Chewbacca. They flew out to Alderaan on Han’s ship (the Millennium Falcon), only to discover that the Death Star had blown it to smithereens. The Imperials were able to capture them by hauling the Falcon aboard the Death Star with its tractor beam.

Luke rescued Leia with the help of Han and Chewbacca, while Obi-Wan fought Vader and sacrificed himself to enable their escape on the Falcon. The Imperials used a tracking device to follow them to a hidden rebel base on Yavin 4.

Joining up with the Rebel Alliance's fighter squadron, Luke attacked the Death Star according to the information that they'd gleaned from the plans hidden inside Artoo. Taking the advice of Obi-Wan's ghost, he turned off his targeting computer and let the Force guide him, so he could blow up the Death Star and everyone on board. Victory!

Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
Fastforward three years. The Rebel Alliance set up a new base on the ice planet of Hoth. Vader and his Imperial Starfleet continued to hunt them, dropping probe droids across the galaxy.

While investigating one of these droids, Luke was attacked and knocked out by a wampa (a yeti type creature), waking up to find himself hanging upside down in its cave, his feet iced to the ceiling. He used the Force to retrieve his lightsaber and cut himself free, before maiming the wampa and escaping from its den.

Close to perishing from the cold, Obi-Wan's ghost materialised and instructed him to go to the swamp planet, Dagobah, to train under Jedi Master Yoda. Han tracked down Luke and managed to keep him warm, a search party eventually rescuing them.

The probe alerted the Imperials to the location of the Rebels. They launched an attack on their base on Hoth, forcing the Rebels to retreat. Han, Leia, Chewbacca and Threepio escaped together on the Millennium Falcon, while Luke rushed off to Dagobah with Artoo.

He crash landed on the planet, meeting Yoda, who grudgingly accepted him as his student. Luke experienced a vision of his friends in danger and had to cut his training short to go after them, travelling to the floating Cloud City on the gas planet of Bespin.

Boba Fett (a bounty hunter) took Han to Jabba the Hutt. Leia, Chewbacca, the droids and Han’s friend, Lando Calrissian, fought their way back to the Falcon, while Luke and Vader had a lightsaber duel. Vader severed Luke’s right hand, disarming him and revealing that he hadn't killed Luke’s father. He was his father.

Aghast, Luke let himself fall into an air shaft, where he was ejected beneath the floating city. He managed to cling on to an antenna instead of plunging to his death. Luke reached out telepathically to Leia, who along with the rest of the Falcon crew, were able to rescue him.

Episode VI – Return of the Jedi
Luke and his friends returned to Tatooine to rescue Han from the crime lord Jabba the Hutt, which they accomplished after fighting and killing most of his group.

Briefly parting ways with his friends, Luke journeyed to Dagobah, discovering that Yoda was dying of old age. He revealed that Luke would need to confront Vader again to complete his training and become a Jedi. Obi-Wan’s ghost also confirmed that Leia was his sister (making that kiss from The Empire Strikes Back awkward as fuck).

The Rebel Alliance discovered that a new Death Star was under construction. Han led a strike team on the forest moon of Endor to destroy a shield generator that was protecting the station. Luke and Leia went to Endor with the strike team, where they encountered a tribe of ewoks (little fluffy creatures that resembled teddy bears).

Luke revealed his connection to Leia, before buggering off to confront Vader. Sensing conflict inside him, Luke implored his father to stop being such an evil shit.

Instead, Vader took Luke to meet the Emperor (or Darth Sidious), intent on turning him to the Dark Side of the Force. After Luke beat Vader in a lightsaber duel, the Emperor urged him to finish him off and take his place by his side. Luke insisted that he was one of the good guys, which provoked the Emperor into torturing him with Force lightning. Vader defended his son by throwing the Emperor down a pit, but was mortally wounded in the process. Anakin Skywalker died redeemed in his son's arms.

The strike team on Endor took the shield generator out of action, which allowed a flight squadron (led by Lando Calrissian) to destroy the new Death Star, hammering the last nail in the coffin of the Galactic Empire. While the rebels and their allies celebrated their victory, Luke glimpsed the spirits of Yoda, Obi-Wan and his father watching over him.

Episode VII – The Force Awakens
Now fastforward thirty years. The First Order rose from the ashes of the Galactic Empire, intent on destroying the New Republic. They were met by opposition from the Resistance (its leader being Leia).

She wanted to track down Luke, who had gone into self-imposed exile after he'd failed to train her son, Ben. In the Last Jedi, it was revealed that while Ben was asleep, Luke saw inside him that "he would bring destruction, and pain, and death". Luke ignited his lightsaber, intending to cut him down before he could cause any harm, but changed his mind, ashamed by his reaction. Ben woke up to find Luke standing over him with his weapon, which tipped him over to the Dark Side of the Force. He slaughtered Luke’s apprentices and blew his Jedi temple to bits.

Pieces of a map were put together of Luke's secret location. A Jedi wannabe named Rey travelled along with Artoo and Chewbacca to the remote oceanic planet, Ahch-To. Rey came face to face with an aged Luke. Roll credits.

Episode VIII – The Last Jedi
Rey tried to get him to help the Resistance, but he refused repeatedly, too traumatised and grief stricken after he’d pushed his nephew, Ben (or Kylo Ren), towards the Dark Side of the Force. Luke also thought in his screwed up way that he was doing the right thing by letting the Jedi die out on the island, breaking the circle of light and dark, good and bad. After a “talk” with Artoo, he reluctantly agreed to help in a limited capacity by training Rey.

While on the island, Rey started to talk to Kylo through the Force. He told her about how his dear sweet Uncle Luke had tried to kill him. Luke caught them communicating this way and ripped apart Rey's hut, the two of them fighting before he recounted his side of the story. Rey left Ahch-To, convinced that somebody could save Kylo from the Dark Side.

Luke prepared to burn down the Jedi library, but faltered in his task. Yoda’s ghost materialised and summoned lightning to destroy the sacredJedi texts, urging him not to lose Rey. Luke was dragged into Pandora shortly afterwards.

Pandora
• He settled on a desolate island in the Saint Sacul star system, where he became fascinated with a civilisation that had once lived on there (the Saculites).
• Aliens from the neighbouring planet of Yensid started stealing ancient Saculite artefacts and poaching fauna, unbalancing the island. Luke made it his duty to recover them.
• On one of these missions, he foolishly fell down a cliff and landed in a magic puberty lake (link to one shot).


ROLEPLAY SAMPLE


Luke jerked awake with a violent chattering of teeth, finding his cheek pressed against cool mud. He wrinkled his nose at its heavy, feculent stink. Ugh. He was going to spend the next couple of weeks smelling like a rancour’s bath! Oh, what was everybody going to say?

He was lying on his front, his dusky brown robes plastered to his skin, water lapping at his legs and waist. Still shivering from the damp and cold, he pulled himself out of the lake and crouched dripping in some thick, scratchy bushes, noticing something funny. His clothes were pretty loose, especially around the midsection. He’d heard of certain materials shrinking in water, but never expanding. Huh. He guessed it wasn’t as important as getting out of here right now, though.

Luke squinted up at the rugged cliffs that surrounded him, rubbing absentmindedly at the hard, sore little spot on his head. His hair felt softer to him, like convor feathers. He noted the waning light in the sky, the sun hidden behind the peaked heads of the mountains. It’d been morning when he’d set off on his artefact hunt. Had he been unconscious the whole day?

“Oh, no,” he sighed heavily. “Father’s bound to have gotten into trouble by n-”

He froze with his mouth hanging open, his eyes widening at both the familiar and unfamiliar sound of his voice. It was no longer an age scarred growl, but the reedy, tremulous bleat of a lamb. Why did he sound like he was six years old!?

Luke stuck his left hand in front of his face, shutting his mouth with a jolt at the absence of lines marking the back. He turned it over to study the palm. Soft, like he’d never hardened it upon the rough rocks of Ahch-To. He fumbled at his chin and cheeks, discovering more softness instead of the long, coarse hairs of his beard.

"Whuh?” he commented intelligently, crawling on hands and knees to peer at his undulating reflection in the lake. Who he saw staring back had him losing his balance and pitching face first into the water with a cannonball crash. It was him! But young!

He reared his head out of the water, gasping and choking like he had a collapsed lung. The liquid had a weird taste, sort of a hint of fruit. Could it have done this to him? In that case, it was unwise to stay in the lake, lest he get even younger. Then again, he’d spent all day floating here. Shouldn’t he have been reduced to an embryo by now? He shuddered at the grim image.

Luke scrambled back on to the bank, silvery water streaming down his robes and splattering against the mud. He hugged hold of himself with trembling arms, the chattering of his teeth tumultuous inside his skull. It was only going to get colder with night closing in above his head. He’d freeze to death if he hung around here, trying to find a way to reverse his situation.

He slipped his soft, unlined hand into his cloak. Luke still had his credits, albeit they were a little soggy. The best thing he could do was head into the nearest town, then rent out a room at a cantina to wait out the night... Preferably one with a roaring fire in the hearth. Anyways, perhaps the effects of the lake would wear off in a few hours… He might wake up old tomorrow! A warm ray of hope bloomed in his chest.

“At least I don’t have a dog’s face this time,” he muttered bitterly, beginning to squelch off in his waterlogged boots towards a clearing between two mountains. He fidgeted with his belt, gritting his teeth as he tightened it as much as he could - and finding that it still wasn’t tight enough!

Oh… Had he really gained all that weight over the years?
