Cast - Butch Cassian and the Sundance Droid

Player Characters

Cassian Cassian played by Annie.

Cassian is an agent of the Rebellion, seeking to overthrow the Empire. He is also a pacifist, following a traumatic incident in his recent past. He struggles to reconcile these conflicting motivations, in a morally complex and interesting manner.

Annie originally joined the gaming group to improve her stage acting skills and became interested in its free-form approach to playing characters. She is dedicated to playing her character as a real, complex person with motivations inspired by a well-considered backstory. Annie has been living in Los Angeles for the past five years, pursuing an acting career.

K-2SO K-2SO played by Sally.

K-2SO is an Imperial combat droid, who loves combat. He defected from the Empire to the Rebellion because the Empire didn't give him enough chances to fight. He's finding that the Rebellion doesn't really give him enough chances to fight either.

Sally is the youngest player. She has an active imagination and enjoys inventing details about the game setting and characters. She has just started going to university.

Chirrut Îmwe Chirrut Îmwe played by Pete.

Chirrut Îmwe is a blind monk who lives in Jedha City on Danuta Plateau on the planet of Tatooine. He likes getting involved in other people's conflicts, so he can show off his awesome blind fighting skills.

Pete enjoys the game for the chance to do insanely dangerous things and to argue his way out of trouble using logic and the finer points of the game rules. Pete designed a character to maximise all the skills he thought would come in most useful in a space game with an insane amount of melee combat, at the cost of being blind.

Kyle Katarn Kyle Katarn played by Jim.

Kyle Katarn is a neutral partisan leader. His partisans refuse to take sides in the ongoing conflict between the Empire and the Rebellion. He is not concerned whether this is consistent with the definition of "partisan" or not.

Jim is a rather gung-ho roleplayer, interested in action, cool fight scenes, and lucrative spoils over careful consideration or puzzle solving. He frequently acts before he thinks, or at the other extreme comes up with overly elaborate plans for achieving what should be simple goals. Jim has been living in Los Angeles for the past five years, in a job with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Bria Tharen Bria Tharen played by Jim.

Bria Tharen is the estranged daughter of Galen Erso, an Imperial weapons developer. Bria hates her father for betraying the free people of the Galaxy and deciding to work for the corrupt Empire. She works for the Rebellion as a way to get back at him.

Bria is originally an NPC, but is taken over by Jim when Kyle Katarn dies.

Bail Organa Bail Organa played by Jim.

Bail Organa is the Senator for Alderaan in the Galactic Senate. He has an adopted daughter, who he has been training in statecraft, to eventually take over his position in the Senate.

Jim doesn't really have a good excuse to play Bail Organa, but does so anyway.

Captain Antilles Captain Antilles played by Jim.

Captain Antilles is the pilot and captain of Bail Organa's diplomatic vessel Tantive IV.

Jim takes over Captain Antilles when Bria Tharen dies.
