    I haven't read any legends material in about 15 to 20 years, but when I did I loved Thrawn, Talon Karrde and especially Lando.

    Did Lando have his own novel series? I know Han did.

    Not that I am aware of besides The Adventures of Lando Calrissian(which I don't remember being good), but he was prominent or at least appeared in a lot of novels post Jedi and I remember really liking him. I use to say he was my favorite character once I started reading Thrawn trilogy and a bunch of other books that came after.

    Though, like I said I haven't re-read those books so this is memory. Could be different if I read them all now, but I know I loved him then, he's my favorite part of Solo and I'm glad to see him back in IX.

    Edit: And I really want Donald Glover to star in a Lando series for Disney +. Badly want that.

    Lando was the best thing about Solo: A Star Wars Story, I love his line, “I don’t like it, I don’t agree with it, but I accept it.” I might investigate if he has had any novelizations in the EU/Legends. Surely how he became a prominate figure and leader of Cloud City could have been a book.

    I love Ikrit because of his wisdom.
    Love Vitiate's battle with Revan, Scourge, and Meetra Surik.
    And there's something mystic about Vergere and her story and downfall to the darkside.
    Her living with the Vong for decades was very intriguing as well.

    Good! Good! Many of your favorites are Sith and Dark Jedi. I am currently studying Jedi vs. Sith, and am becoming aquainted with Darth Ruin and Darth Andeddu.

    Him and the King of the Undead (Lord of the Rings: ROTK) are quitr creepy. He reminds me that the Dark Path can have effects on the body. Hence why I wear Revan’s Mando Mask juat in case. :D

    Oh gosh, it's so hard to choose.

    Bane, in my opinion, is the Sith (outside of Anakin obviously) who has had the most depth as a character in all the reaches of Star Wars. I could reread those novels forever.

    I've never identified with a character the way I did Jaina Solo. I think she's a perfect example of being able to make a character unique without having to resort to extreme means, and she might have the most mature and well-thought out evolution of the entire NJO era.

    Kreia might be the most fascinating character in the history of Star Wars. Despite the games many flaws, her mere presence and philosophy weaves such incredible themes throughout the game. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    There's so many more. It's hard to choose. It's like picking my children, even after all these years and after moving past the EU.

    I sure miss the expanded universe. I used to read so many of the books when I was a kid. A shame Disney didn't take some stories from there for the new films.

    Uhm, quite hard for me to choose.

    So far, Bane, in my opinion is my favorite Star Wars character. I'm currently the process of reading Rule Of Two, and I've enjoyed the first two novels published by Drew Karpyshyn. There's so much lore I've learned about the Sith in two books than I've ever learned in the movies.

    1. Jaxxon, because duh.

    2. Jaina Solo. Her and Jacen have more development and real story than maybe any SW character outside of the original three. I love the fact that the twins started primarily as junior novel characters, but actually had the chance to grow up and become protagonists in the adult novels. That's the sort of storytelling continuity you rarely get from any franchise. And Jaina's arc is particularly satisfying. She really embodies the Skywalker spirit.


    Controversial opinion: Mara Jade is great, but I think she's a little overrated. When she's written well it's good, but when she's written poorly, it's SO BAD. It can quickly turn into the worst of 90s action tropes.

    My personal favorite old Star Wars characters from the old Marvel comic book and novels i know some of them right off the bat while others I forgot their names etc.

    Old Marvel Star Wars had some cool characters, weapons etc

    the Jedi Academy Trilogy books had the best characters along with the original 6 novels of the X-Wing book series
