    Now I don't wanna say that I'm the first to abuse this immeasurable new power of making ORPA threads, but I'm totally the first to abuse this immeasurable new power of making ORPA threads.

    And who better to get the first thread than our very own Outlaw Red?

    I think it's amazing to have such a distinct female voice for the Chiss (to temper the ones we find in Thrawn and Snote) and I also think it's just as amazing that what we have here is not your typical action hero dame. :D

    Missy is a scientist socialite in a world of uncivilized barbarians and outlaws. Her greatest strength is her adaptability and perseverance. This is clearly someone who knows how to handle a gun just as good as she can handle a test tube. Missy is a free spirit with high standards and she will call you out on your idiocy if needed. ALWAYS.

    However, her cutoff from her birth culture, her family (and friends?) is what keep Missy a very reserved person in this sea of strangers that's the bigger galaxy outside the Unknown Regions. She hides a lot of insecurities and frustrations behind her outlaw mask. I think she's very pragmatic on the outside, but must secretly be a romantic on the inside. I kind of wish we could explore her childhood love and awe of Jedi more though especially if we are about to go to Jedha soon.

    So... that's pretty much it! ^^
    I wanted to make it read like a character page a bit in case someone new stumbles here..

    Excellent choice™ for the first character thread.

    A testament to the character (and the comic's writing) is that, when it comes down to the stats, we really haven't interacted with Missy as an acting player character as much as Doop or Saber (in fact, we had a huge gap in Act I from her debut chapter to her second time), yet she is one of the more fleshed out protagonists. I dare say she comes second after Saber in that regard.

    She's surely my favourite of the bunch, though some others do come close. Need more POSH and SCIENCE in future level-ups and, (probably) unpopular opinion, I like Red more with dark hair.

    Don't mind me, I'm just waiting for the eventual Doop floodgates to open once we get to a certain point in Act II.

    Missy also feels like she's the most emotionally mature of the trio. Doop is clearly hiding or running away from something and keeps to himself all the time. I don't think he is such a jerk for the hell of it, I think there has to be a deeper reason there. Saber is like a sheltered wallflower who got his first taste of what the world outside his bubble really tastes like and can't deal with it because he was never prepared for it..

    Then you have Missy keeping her cool as best as she can, even with all the troubles that come her way. This is why I am in full endorsement of Choice #2 in this update. Like @FN-3263827 said: it's like ripping off a bandaid!
    I can see why, but I think her red hair has become too iconic at this point. :D

    I don't think @Alamact is going to change it at all (besides maybe the hairstyle, who knows?).

    No wonder Al is so good at writing Snote.

    He writes what is most familiar to him.
