Definitely Obi Wan. Especially in Episodes I and II. He is sort of an ideal Jedi to me. Always calm and peaceful, with a sense of humor, that´s how I - try - to be.

How times change you. Used to identify with Plo Koon, and still do to a degree... But Ahsoka more closely aligns with my Path.

A hot-headed newbie Jedi, becoming a bit of a firebrand during apprenticeship... But eventually levelling out, holding one's own, and becoming all the better a Jedi for it.

Also reverse grip Mastery FTW! ;p

I'd be very happy if I was someday compared to Qui-Gon Jin.

As a great Master once described in this thread:

Who I was -- Anakin from Episode 2: Whiny, Too big for his britches, Bites off more than he can chew and blames everyone for what happens and takes no responsibility for himself.

Who I am now -- Mace Windu: Experience has brought wisdom, anger is still the biggest threat but learning how to control it and use it towards something good, a Gray Jedi who is in Balance.

Who I hope I become -- Qui Gon Jinn: Still a Gray Jedi like Mace but has learned to overcome his anger and doubts. Like any great Jedi he has his own issues still since no one is perfect but he listens to Yoda faithfully but still commits to his own choices for what he believes is right and in Balance with the Force.

Who I wish I could be -- Yoda: If you can be anyone, always be Yoda.

Eh, I can't say as I feel a strong similiarity to any of the Jedi characters. They're all a bit...too extreme.

I'm more of a chewie - mostly competent comic relief, dragged along on asinine adventures (because really, what else am I going to do?) and a few anger management problems.

all I really want is to get paid, and have some time off to spend with a cute Askajian and some Regellian draught.

(and if I'm not careful, my speech sounds like garbled nonsense, so there's that)

So I was thinking about this a lot because like James I kinda also don't feel a strong character connection.

But in very loose terms I would say I want to be OB1 from A New Hope. Now I need you to think of it like this. You have only seen A New Hope as the perspective. So, here's this old dude lives in the desert you don't know much about him. He will all reply to all the questions you ask, he might show you some cool things, he won't lie to you but he will test your perceptions. I kind of just have to trust him on somethings but he does some tough things through the plot, in the end though he knows there is something deeper, and he does the craziest thing (takes light-saber to death) because that deeper thing doesn't end with him. He delivers a message when it needs to be after only a moments clear contemplation after a chaotic series of events. That's not the last thing he does either, he ends up passing on the message to Luke during the Death Star scene from just a different point of view (dead but use it metaphorically). Now that is the me I would like to be. Am I there no and the path in between is not quite what you would cannon like at all........but in the end if you know only this set of guidelines you see a man who has learned the most from his experiences and sees what they have summed up in order to be of help those to in need. Once i get there I'll let you know. :)

Much Love Respect and Peace,
Kobos

Just from what I've read about her on Wookieepedia, I think Mara Jade would probably be the character I most identify with. She's got a complicated past, she picks things up quickly, can read a situation and respond, she's driven and craves a true challenge, she's got serious long term health things (at least for a while she did).

She's a satin sofa surrounded by razorwire walls.

When you're writing, you're conjuring. It's a ritual, and you need to be brave and respectful and sometimes get out of the way of whatever it is that you're inviting into the room. - Tom Waits
