I sometimes wonder where I'd be if Isabelle and her crew had'nt picked me up, I'd probably be dead, truth be told. I was a stupid kid, and I couldn't wait to leave Da'hren, but at the time I didn't really have a direction, a goal, I was just some puckish teenager with her first taste of freedom, aaaaaand I may have bitten off more than I could chew, and very nearly choked to death, metaphorically speaking... I didn't like the Empire, so I figured, 'Hey, I'll steal a Tie Fighter from the local depot!', I used to sneak in there sometimes, steal scrap, paint over propaganda posters, stupid junk that angry teenagers do, anyway yeah, I took a Tie Fighter. What I DIDN'T now at the time is that they're dreadful little death-traps, had I left the atmosphere in that thing, well, it would've been grizzly... Luckily enough Isabelle's cell was in the area, they saw Ties heading in their direction and figured they'd been discovered, I'm actually pretty lucky the Ties were firing at me, else Izzy might have shot me down thinking I was the leader! Sweet merry hell, I was so damn reckless back then... ~Quinn Shara's memoirs, Early Rebel years, reflecting on the bumpy start to her journey.

You were always just as reckless!!! ~Sidenote by Orchid Shara.
-------

Starrr Warrrs OC AU! And Quinn's journey starts off with her doing something reckless, who'd have figured, eh? 
Originally she was gonna steal a Z-95 belonging to one of Isabelle's men, but I like this idea better, because hey, she could die in any number of ways! :O
She could get shot down by Imperials, she could leave the atmosphere and the lack of life-support would kill her, Izzy and Chase could mistake her for an Imperial and blow her up, she's crazy lucky... But start as you mean to go on, am I right? She gets older, and wiser, but she's always young at heart, reckless and impulsive.

She was born on Corellia, during the early weeks of Palpatine's Jedi Purge, her Father died soon after and her Mother spent the next five years ferrying her across the Galaxy, trying to stay a step ahead of the Imperial Inquisition, eventually leaving her at Yana's Shelter for Orphaned Children on Da'hren
Da'hren is a small moon orbiting a gas giant called J'hen, it's an obscure little place on the edge of the Empire, it's surface is scarred from the Clone Wars as both sides had contested J'hen and in the years since a thriving community of scavengers and refugees made Da'hren their home, salvaging the forgotten wreckages that litter it's surface and constructing large cities where the scrap was densest, often made from that same scrap. Resource wise, the Empire has little interest in J'hen or Da'hren, however it serves as a good place for a remote refueling station, it's low population and out of the way location have other benefits for the Empire too... 

Da'hren is a lucrative place for smugglers and scavengers, and also dissidents, with hundreds of old warships littering it's surface, many still untouched, although the equipment they're carrying might be outdated, it lies in incredible quantities, allowing a group like Isabelle's to amass a large surplus of arms and equipment to distribute among other Rebel cells, trade for information and supplies, etc. And indeed at this point in time Isabelle's group has only recently transitioned from an aid organisation into a Rebel cell, they came to Da'hren to procure military equipment, and leave with a wannabe-Jedi as well, not too bad, eh? :meow:
-------
Quinn: Yeaaaaaaaahhaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!

Isabelle: That's no Imperial pilot, a defector? Or--!

Chase: A joyrider!?

Isabelle: If she isn't wearing a flightsuit she's in big trouble... Chase, take out her tails, I'll guide her down!

Chase: S-sure! I don't think they even noticed us...
-------

Honestly, I drew this because it was a silly fun idea to draw, young Quinn having the time of her life, flying for real for the first time, ignorant to the danger around her, or maybe just not caring, riding high on the adrenaline rush, I just like her excited expression... XD Isabelle and Chase are shocked to hear a childish "Yeaaahhhaaahh" coming from the lead Tie. I changed up their equipment somewhat for this drawing, as this is early on, they're not that well equipped, their flightsuits and helmets aren't military grade, in fact their purpose for coming to Da'hren was to gather such equipment. Chase's custom Y-wing hasn't had it's garish red paint-job yet (hence it's three times slower...;P), and Isabelle and her wingman (likely Zomori) are flying Z-95s (X-wings aren't a thing yet after all) with quad-engines. (there are lots of different variations on the Z-95, I'm using the Fantasy Flight X-Wing Miniatures model as my reference. :meow: )

I really enjoyed playing with this, adding the different perspectives and panels, like the over the shoulder view of the pilot shooting at Quinn, that's a first, and it was really interesting to do, also the Tie Fighter bursting into flames, it's a stark contrast to Quinn's elation, and is pretty grim, but yeah, Quite a lot of my characters DIE, and I do want it to be kinda' grim and graphic when death occurs, because death is grim. But don't worry it won't be constantly grim, it'll have good times as well, p-promise! ^^; By the way, I hope those Tie Fighter interiors look alright! It's not easy finding references, so I kinda' winged it... XD 

Also J'hen and Da'hren are references to Monster Hunter (like Dalex), I really love those names... :heart: I changed them ever so slightly, adding more emphasic on the 'h'. :meow:

Anyway, I had a lot of fun with this, and I hope ya'll like it too, as ever feedback is greatly appreciated!

Ishara is a character I created for a Star Wars role playing game. We'll see how it goes, being as how this will be my first role playing game (you, know, with a GM and whatnot) ever. She's a Togruta, like Shaak Ti. I personally really enjoyed drawing this picture :)
I strongly suggest full view to take in all the details

Jedi Sentinel from the upcoming SWTOR.
He's definitely going to be my starting character!
This class is supposed to hold duel lightsabers, but I want to show off some force abilities too! :D

...I have no other reasonable explanation other than: I felt like it. Her name is Isa Cortess. Yes she has a long ass backstory, and yes you are more than welcome to read it if you want (note me).
Enjoy darlings. <3

A gift for my friend :iconxxbeowulfxx:

I wanted to warm up during lunch to get some action shots in and I just kept going with it. Turned out to be something I def wanted to push myself to do. My "Sith" Warrior, Luniara and his "Jedi" Consular, Wraloa Craubo from the JungMA server of SWTOR.

No matter how hard things got-- And TRUST ME, things got pretty freaking hard at times-- I could always rest assured that my back was covered, even in the tightest of situations, surrounded with enemies at all sides, whenever I felt that hard beskar'gam against my back I couldn't help but feel untouchable. ~Quinn Shara's memoirs, Rebellion/early New Republic years, recalling (somewhat fondly) the many sticky situations she and Jaeriel fought their way out of.

This is special, like a mini celebration, because reasons. ;P 
If you wanna know what I mean look at the top of my page, at the group info...
I'll make a proper Journal soon, when I feel better, because I'm unwell, and I really struggle to write when I'm unwell, my bad.
(It took me half an hour to think up a memoir for this piece, I'm really outta the zone today... ^^; )  

Let's just say that we're part of a whole *nuther Galaxy now... ;P
And I'm honoured by that. ;w;
(*Yes I know 'nuther' ain't a word, Imma use it anyway, just like 'imma')


Anyhow, here we have Quinn and Jaeriel, back to back, surrounded by enemies on the carcass of a downed Star Destroyer, they fight through the seemingly endless hoards of men and war machines as the battle rages on in the skies above, knowing they've got a friend at their back fills them with the vigor to seize victory against the odds! (Quinns Corellian, so don't ever tell her the odds. :stare:

Jaeriel would probably (?) be wearing her helmet here, but I left it off for artistic effect (Yay for putting art over logic like a dummy! :la:), I wanted to show that Jaeriel feels the same confidence Quinn feels, each knowing they've got their backs firmly covered. :meow: 
Quinn usually fights with her lightsaber in only one hand, when she doublehands it that usually means she's on the defensive, which isn't really her style. (For an in-depth look at her style check out the description of these sketches, they give a decent insight into her strategy and mindset.)
Also I think that the downed Star Destroyer they're battling on was already quite close to the ground beforehand, though still assume that most of the armaments and vehicles it was carrying were destroyed (only that one AT-AT, and those two AT-STs are functioning. (I'm sure these two can figure out a way to take em' down ;P
The rest of the Imperial fleet above consists of the smaller Victory-class Star Destroyers, and an Interdictor, with the flagship being the downed Imperial-class.

Over all I'm quite happy with this, especially considering I'm sick right now. XD I always love drawing these two, and I enjoy blending those lightsaber effects, as well as making fire and explosions (Not as much as Michael Bay though.), and I love drawing ships and Star Wars vehicles, so yeah, this was fun, and I really hope ya'll find it fun too! As ever feedback is greatly appreciated! :heart:

I told myself I would never post this...and yet here I am! lol I do feel quite ridiculous posting this, but she got so much attention and so many questions from just her age meme that I felt obligated to post her bio somewhere. So, here we go with my shameless Star Wars nerdiness...
Basics
Name: Isa Cortess (ee-sa, kor-tes)
Title/Alias: Initiate/Padawan/Master/General Cortess, Little Fire, Katya Cortess, Isabel Taahm (post Order 66)
Species: Human
Home World: Alderaan (Current Home: Coruscant)
Birthdate: 54 BBY
Occupation: Jedi
Lightsaber Colour: Yellow
Skin: Pale
Hair: Red
Eyes: Pale green
Height: 5'9
Weight: 127lbs
Distinguishing Features -
*She’s noted for being strikingly beautiful in an stark sort of way. As a child she was pale and awkwardly skinny with big eyes and a wide forehead. But as a young woman she grew to be tall and slender with elegant features and an deep gaze.
*She has a birth mark on her right shoulder blade in the shape of a sickle, a jagged scar across her stomach and multiple fainter scars across her upper back.

Personality:
Isa is a difficult personality to understand at face value. Outwardly she seems quiet and reserved, almost fragile - but beneath the guise she has an incredibly strong mind, and an even stronger will. As a child she rarely voluntarily spoke aloud to those she wasn’t close with, and even as a young adult she was not quick to open up to others until they first earned her trust. She has a passionate thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and a fierce desire to do well in anything she was taught; even in her least favorite subjects. She prides herself on her intelligence and smarts rather than her skills in combat, and retains a mild distain for those who place too much value on brawn rather than brains.
Despite her very strong mind she has always been a little quiet, even as an adult. She tended to shy away from conflict as a child, a feat that she was often reprimanded for by her masters. As an adult she is more than capable of holding her own in a fight, but her first port of call has always been to find a peaceful solution to any problem. Despite being a naturally very emotional person she rarely looses her temper or becomes truly enraged. She is capable of empathising with others very deeply, which makes it easy for others to trust her quickly. She is also genuinely kind and loving, valuing every life she comes into contact with - a feat that magnified greatly after the loss of her first master who she was very close to.
Weaknesses:
- Reserved
- Overly critical (of herself and others)
- Judgmental
- Passive Aggressive
- Emotional

Strengths:
+ Compassionate
+ Wise
+ Kind Hearted
+ Modest
+ Resourceful

Quote Samples:
“My Rodian is a little rusty, but I’m pretty sure she said something along the lines of ‘eat flaming nerf dung, you pig.’” - Isa

“I lied...of course.” - Isa

“You stupid, stupid man, Obi-Wan Kenobi! You scared me to death! Damn you!” - Isa (shouting at Obi-Wan)

“Force! If I’d known you were going to look like that I have brought you a stronger sedative.” - Isa

“You planned for this? With respect Master Cortess, I’ve never met anyone with that level of paranoia before.”
“It’s not paranoia if someone is actually trying to kill you. But I see your point.”
- Anakin & Isa

“Did you tell her that he was going to do that?”
“I may have given her that impression, yes.” *smirk*
- Plo & Isa

“The healers said I’d recover faster if I try to stay active. I got this far and needed to rest.”
“You look-”
“Like hell. I know.”
“I was going to say tired. Isa, when was the last time you slept?”
“Two days ago. Maybe three. I can’t remember.”
- Isa & Obi-Wan

Trivia:
= When Isa was still training as a padawan, her first master used to teach her to sharpen her senses by making her preform tasks or dodge attacks (without a lightsaber) in either pitch darkness or extreme weather conditions like freezing cold or very dense fog. Because of these constant and intense exercises, Isa became very skilled at techniques that require strong and precise Force focus. Her Force push/pull and telekinesis abilities were near unrivalled by any other padawan her age.

= Because of Isa’s particularly strong Force sensitivity and perceptive mind, she is susceptible to frequent premonitions that come to her in the form of extremely vivid dreams. When she was still a young initiate she was frequently plagued by these dreams and was sometimes afraid to go to sleep at night. After a once incident when she fell asleep during a meditation session and woke up shrieking in terror, she was instructed to report to Master Yoda three times a week for one on one training in calming her hypersensitive mind. This training helped her clear and compartmentalise her thoughts and also helped her to strengthen her own mental defences, helping to shield her mind from unfriendly invasion.

= Isa’s biggest strength as a Jedi is in her mind. Even as a young child she had an unusually strong and flexible mind, able to focus the Force with natural ease. As an adult, Isa has honed and perfected her already strong mental abilities. She not only has the capable of bending weak minds to her will, but she can potentially overpower even some of the strongest minds that would normally by unsusceptible to Jedi manipulation. Despite this raw strength, she is also mentally flexible enough to preform powerful mind tricks without her targets even knowing anything is happening. However she explains that tampering with someone’s mind (at least more than a few superficial mind tricks) is incredibly dangerous for both the target and the one doing the tampering. Normal Jedi mind tricks work on thoughts that are at the surface of consciousness, but deeper thoughts, memories and feelings are often far more ingrained into what makes a person who they are. You can damage someone’s mind irreparably if you’re not careful, or even become lost in another person’s consciousness altogether. Isa only dared try to forcefully manipulate another person’s mind once; Obi-Wan’s mind. During a joint mission together with him and Qui-Gon, she accidentally caught a glimpse of some of his deepest memories while she was healing him. What she saw scared her so much that she tried to forcefully erase the memories from his mind. However despite her efforts and care, she failed. After Obi-Wan eventually figured out what she had done to him, he never fully forgave her until shortly after Qui Gon’s death.

= One of her biggest weaknesses is her hesitation during combat. Despite a skilled practitioner of Niman lightsaber form, she genuinely dislikes confrontation and would rather avoid it at almost any cost. However, Isa’s hesitation during fights (as frequently pointed out by Master Yoda and Master Antilles) means that she often left herself open to attacks. As a padawan, Rashid deliberately trained Isa in the more aggressive form of Djem So to encourage her to become more assertive in her stance - but the teachings never truly sank in until after she witnessed her master’s death. She still struggles with the remnants of her hesitant fighting style as an adult but uses her strong emotions of help combat it.

= Despite her quiet disposition, Isa is an accomplished actress having spent a lot of her early padawan years learning from her first master who specialised in covert operations. She is able to convincingly pull of an array of different personas depending on the situation, from a modest slave girl to a spoiled nobleman’s daughter. She has often done work whilst under an adopted identity, and on occasion has acted as a decoy for the daughters of senators or noblemen when their families were being targeted. One of the things that makes her so good at keeping up a facade is her ability to shield her mind from intrusion. The ability allows her to completely hide her internal emotions and thoughts from being sensed. It also makes it nearly impossible for anyone but her master to tell when she’s lying.

= Her two favorite places in the entire Jedi Temple as a child were the Star Chart Room and the Room of a Thousand Fountains. During her early years as an initiate she could often be found there, half way up a tree with a book during her free time when she really should have been meditating.

= Prior to her first master’s death Isa typically fought in the relatively tame Niman style of lightsaber combat, with a low guard and more focus put on Force related abilities. However after her Djem So training with Master Plo Koon and a lot of training to make her stance more assertive, she adopted the unorthodox reverse lightsaber grip and a much more aggressive (and creative) style of combat. She was one of the few padawans that the Masters felt had the mental capabilities to master Djem So without the risk of being seduced by the sheer strength of emotion needed to use it.

= After her first master’s death, Isa was held in captivity for almost a two standard months before she was rescued. In that time she was subjected to a battery of cruel and humiliating forms of torture by her captors. She was starved until she was too weak to fight and was beaten on a regular basis. When she was given food it would sometimes be deliberately laced with toxins that made her sick or temporally blind so she couldn’t defend herself from them. She managed to break out once during her time as a prisoner, but she quickly recaptured since by then her body had grown far too weak to carry her far enough away to really escape. Although she never verbally admits to it, it is heavily implied from her behaviour and the temple healer that she was repeatedly abused by her captors. When Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon found her she was half starved, almost blind and delirious from her wounds getting infected. At first she wouldn’t let either of them near her because she couldn’t distinguish the anger radiating from Obi-Wan (less so in Qui-Gon’s case) from the sadistic glee of the people who’d been hurting her for so long. The scar on her stomach was from a vibroblade wound that she managed to heal herself during her early days as a prisoner.

= She's partially deaf in her left ear. She perforated her eardrum in an explosion when she was being held captive on a spice freighter. Although the temple healers did the best they could, she didn't get medical attention fast enough to completely restore her hearing.

= Her full birth title is: Isa, first of her name, eldest daughter of Arys and Hasansa and second heir to the noble House of Cortess of Alderaan. Her mother made her memorize it before she left for the Jedi Temple so she would never forget where she came from.
