Canon Character Information
Appearance: Short and thin, with brown hair with red and blonde streaks mixed in. Her eyes are green with amber flecks.

Etain has struggled with self-confidence issues for most of her life. She lacked faith in her own skills, hampering her ability to use the Force and make decisions under pressure. A case in point being when Darman expected her to come up with a plan of attack when they met and she snapped, screaming for him to do it instead, it being that one thing too much to top off an incredibly bad week. It was followed up with an apology once she had calmed down and she acknowledged she had no idea what she was doing and that he needed to teach her what to do; showing she was smarter than she gave herself credit for, since she knew when to let the person with the appropriate training take the lead along with showing a willingness to learn how to do better.

How sheltered she was due to the way the Jedi raised her is frequently displayed when she is shocked or otherwise taken by surprise by how people from outside the Jedi behave. Such as when Darman was fully prepared to kill what was apparently an old woman if she turned out to be an enemy agent.

As that first mission and then later ones continued, she gradually became more confident in herself and more sympathetic to the clone troopers' plight, recognizing the parallels between them and herself with the rather glaring exception being that unlike them, she could choose to leave the Jedi Order. If they were to try to desert, assassins would be sent after them.

As the war progressed, Etain started to question if she really wanted to stay in the Order, finding she felt she belonged with Kal Skirata's group more than with the Jedi. With Skirata and his clones, she didn't need to hide her feelings for Darman and was even encouraged to have them rather than be forced to maintain a Jedi's lack of attachment.

Not to mention the way the clones were being used weighed ever more on her conscience, as they were never given a choice about fighting and were effectively a slave army with no rights. She finally reached a point where she couldn't take it anymore and resigned from the Jedi Order, unable to bear their hypocrisy regarding the clones any longer. Sadly, she died that same day, as Order 66 was carried out. Rather than be killed by a clone trooper however, she was killed by another Jedi because she got in the way to protect a soldier on impulse, not thinking of the fact he would have killed her if he knew of her Jedi status.

Powers/Abilities/Talents: As a Jedi, she can use the Force. Examples of the things she can do are listed in the wiki linked above. They include, but are not limited to, telekinesis and Jedi mind tricks.
AU/CR AU Addendum: N/A

What 4 items would you like your character to have with them on the island during their stay? A stuffed nerf toy belonging to her son; the datachip with pictures of herself, her son, and Darman complete with datapad so she can actually view the contents; and her lightsabers.

Finally, out of the 4 words, pick one: Chimes, lake, gravel, or sun?
