Working on concept for my Star Wars Edge of the Empire RPG character. A BX Commando droid that was recovered from a Clone Wars battlefield and modified by the Black Sun to be an Assassin and Enforcer. As he gained sentience (a must for a droid to be a player character) he stopped following his master’s orders. Having outlived his usefulness his former owners assigned him to be the test subject for a Black Sun funded science team in their attempts to create an interface for a recently recovered Jedi Holocron. The scientists succeeded in accessing the information hidden inside the Holocron, but something went wrong when they attempted to interface that data with BX’s systems, destroying the original storage device and overloading the droid’s memory core. Luckily the experiment achieved their goal of turning BX into walking, talking repository of Jedi knowledge. Unluckily the knowledge that was implanted were the memories of a Jedi knight that died in battle 4000 years prior during the Jedi Civil war, those memories overtook the droid and caused him to enact a daring escape, not before killing every single crew member of the science team’s ship. Now he is working as a hired gun on a smuggling vessel, his memories and personality a jumble of Old Republic era Jedi, Clone Wars era Commando Droid, and Post Jedi Purge era underworld assassin. Physical attributes include a modified arm from an IG-110 lightsaber droid, with a cortosis weave (repels lightsabers) and the ability to split into 2 separate arms giving him 3 appendages while deployed. He also wears clothing, something really odd for a droid. Yes, I may be a nerd, but I had fun with this.
