So, my D&D group started a new D20 Star Wars game, and here is my new Jedi.
Rue is a Jedi Consular who achieved knighthood just in time for the Clone Wars in which he is serving alongside the rest of the Jedi.
Zeltrons, who are the token SEXSEXSEX race, are not ideal for the Jedi lifestyle because of their emotional and indulgent personalities. As empaths, they're especially vulnerable to emotions that could lead to the dark side. Rue's former master took him on as a padawan specifically because of this. He was raised and trained very strictly and hasn't been back to Zeltross since he was taken off the planet as a toddler. Slightly cloistered and very socially awkward and conservative as a result, Rue has a hard time balancing his emotional personality with his strict Jedi upbringing. He likes hanging out with the Clones.
