The Reason Why by Acaciathorn The Reason Why by Acaciathorn
More art for our Star Wars campaign! Edge of the Empire has a feature called "Obligation" which represents a debt a character owes, or a force which drives their life. This is the final drawing in a series of four depicting the Obligations of the player characters.

Tyrran's Obligation is his desire to protect his family back home on Corellia. He joined the Rebel Alliance after his sister Terra - a slicer and fellow force-sensitive - was abducted by the Empire and sold into slavery. Already a talented pilot, Tyrran honed his skills and set out to rescue her. After teaming up with a bunch of miscreants (that would be us, the rest of the crew) and saving her, Tyrran recommitted himself to the battle against autocracy. Of the player characters, he is the person who puts the most faith in the Rebellion, and who most hates the Empire. He has good reason: Tyrran's father was involved in designing the Tie fighter, but the Imperials betrayed and disposed of him, leaving his wife and their five children to fend for themselves. Tyrran had to step up and help raise his younger sisters, and he still takes his role as the eldest sibling very seriously. He fights so that they won't have to live under an oppressive regime.

This is beautiful. Very thought provoking. It's interesting because I think that every person who sees this can feel a different story in their head upon seeing it :)

Interesting :D. I thought this was graphic design at first. Had no idea it was star wars based until I saw the X-wing fighter (and your post :))

Certainly among the most useful of things to consider when making a character for any setting, in the end. ^^

I like how this one makes the viewer (or maybe it is just me) think about what's on the characters mind. It's vague if you don't read your description but you can pick up on several things. Conflict, Space and the Galaxy, Women, Friends, Loneliness but desiring not to be...there's a lot of emotion here. Good piece!

This reminds me of a house/edm song from a few years ago. I can't remember who did it. Those were part of the main lyrics, though.
