Jedi Soulmates: The Luke and Callista Page

Character Guide

Below are the major (and some minor) characters who will appear in the upcoming "Luke and Callista Trilogy" and the sequel to the trilogy, The Call of the Force. These will contain some spoilers!

Note: the characters that are in italics are the ones I created. The others are established characters in the Star Wars universe, and I've tried to stay as true to their background as I could. In some cases, I made some speculation about certain events in their past, but I've made sure that any speculation I did would not conflict with what's been established in the movies (beyond that, if they happen to conflict with the literature, well... Let's just pretend it's an alternate universe! :-))

Luke Skywalker: (see also Luke bio) a wise and powerful Jedi Knight known for his bravery, selflessness, and loyalty to those he loves, Luke is the son of the legendary Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker (who later turned to evil and became the Sith lord, Darth Vader, before he was finally redeemed by his son) and Padme Naberrie Amidala, Queen of the planet Naboo. He is the twin brother of Ambassador Leia Organa Solo, from whom he was separated at a young age -- he growing up on the desert planet of Tatooine; she growing up as a member of the royal house of Alderaan. A natural born pilot, Luke commanded the famed Rogue Squadron while fighting in the Rebel Alliance in its war against the tyrannical Empire. He later fulfilled his destiny by being trained as a Jedi Knight, first under the tutelage of Obi-Wan Kenobi, then the wise Jedi Master Yoda on the planet Dagobah. In the years since the Rebellion defeated the Empire and reestablished the New Republic, Luke has grown stronger as a Jedi and overseen the rebirth of the New Jedi Order.

Eight years after the Battle of Endor, Luke met the love of his life, the spirit of a courageous Jedi Knight from years ago named Callista. Sensing her presence aboard an Imperial dreadnaught he and two students set out to destroy, the two formed an instant connection and fell deeply in love. After overcoming several painful obstacles in their star-crossed relationship, they married fourteen years after the Battle of Endor, and together, rebuilt the Jedi Order and later re-established the Jedi Council on Coruscant.

Luke and Callista went on to have three children: Cailin Amidala, Owen, and Ryla.

Callista Ming Skywalker: (see also Callista bio) a brave Jedi Knight who lived during the Old Republic, Callista was killed years ago on a dangerous mission to destroy an Imperial weapon. Her spirit remained trapped aboard the dreadnaught called Eye of Palpatine until Luke and two Jedi students, Cray Mingla and Nichos Marr, came aboard and sensed her presence. Miraculously, Callista was able to become flesh and blood once again when Cray, who wanted to sacrifice herself after losing Nichos, offered her body so that Callista could be reunited with her beloved Luke. Coming back to life bore a heavy price, however, and Callista lost her ability to touch the Force. Distraught and traumatized over the loss, she felt incomplete and unworthy of Luke's love. Afraid that she would only be a source of pain in Luke's life, she made the agonizing decision to leave him so she could find her powers on her own.

Five years later, after leaving the companions with whom she was travelling, Callista came upon a shocking discovery that meant certain danger to Luke and the Jedi Knights, and she resurfaced to warn Luke. Finally reunited with her beloved, Callista joined Luke on the run where the two realized how much they needed each other in their lives. Deciding that she wanted to be with Luke forever, with or without the Force, Callista accepted Luke's proposal and they married soon after escaping danger.

A true partner to her husband, both in life and work, Callista helped him run the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 and was equally instrumental in overseeing the rising of the New Jedi Order. She helped him reestablish the Jedi Council, and sits with him on the Council. But her true devotion is to their three children: Cailin, Owen and Ryla, of whom she is fiercely protective. She is known for her loyalty, bravery, and wry sense of humor.

Cailin Amidala Skywalker: born fifteen years after the Battle of Endor, she is the oldest child of Luke and Callista Ming Skywalker. She has her mother's gray eyes and her father's blond locks and dimpled chin. As the oldest of the three Skywalker children, she was called upon many times to help her parents during times of crisis, and because of that, has developed a strong maternal instinct and is very protective over her younger brother and sister. She has inherited a strong Force adeptness from her parents and began training as a Jedi when she was four years old.

Cailin turned out to be the key to her mother regaining her Force powers. It was while Callista was pregnant with Cailin that the Force began to return to her. During her pregnancy, Callista maintained a strong link to Cailin, and as her pregnancy developed, her Force powers grew stronger, returning fully once Cailin was born.

It was also during Callista's pregnancy that Luke and Leia began an exhaustive search for information about their mother. Cailin was given the middle name Amidala in memory of her grandmother.

Owen Skywalker: born two years after his older sister Cailin was born, he is the only son of Luke and Callista Ming Skywalker. Except for the gray eyes that he inherited from his mother, he is the spitting image of his father with dark blond hair and boyish good looks. Like both his sisters, Owen began his training as a Jedi when he was four years old, first under the tutelage of both of his parents, and then under his father when he was a teenager. Like his father, he is a highly skilled pilot, and at sixteen, was the youngest student to be admitted to the Space Academy. Though he is a fully trained Jedi Knight, his first love is being a pilot.

Owen was named after Owen Lars, the man who raised his father.

Ryla Skywalker: Luke and Callista Ming Skywalker's youngest child, she was born three years after older brother Owen was born, after her parents had already returned to Coruscant to reestablish the Jedi Council. With her father's cool blue eyes and her mother's malt-brown curls, Ryla is the strongest of the three Skywalker children in the Force, but she is also the most reckless and impulsive. Like her older siblings, she began her Jedi training at a young age, but struggled with temptations of the dark side.

Leia Organa Solo: one of the most dedicated freedom fighters in the Rebel Alliance, Leia was a natural born leader who went on to be a crucial figure in the young reestablished Republic. Born the daughter of Anakin Skywalker and Padme Naberrie Amidala, Leia was separated from her twin brother Luke at a young age and adopted by Bail Organa of Alderaan who raised her as his own daughter. As a teenager, she became the youngest Senator ever elected in the then Imperial Senate, and eventually, she led a double life as a secret agent in the Rebel Alliance. A few years after the New Republic was established, she became its Chief of State when her predecessor, Mon Mothma, stepped down.

She remained the Chief of State until nine years after the Battle of Endor, when she made the decision to spend more time with her husband and young children. She became an ambassador after her resignation from her Chief of State duties, going on occasional missions when the need arose. Finally free from her overwhelming commitment to the Republic, she turned to her brother once again to finally finish her Jedi training, and is now a formidable Jedi Knight. When her children turned thirteen and twelve, she became their Jedi Master and took on their training. She sits on the new Jedi Council along with her brother and his wife.

She married Han Solo four years after the Battle of Endor and they have three children: twins Jacen and Jaina, and Anakin.

Han Solo: a dashing and brave pilot, Han Solo was a spice smuggler when his path crossed with Luke Skywalker years ago. With Luke, he rescued the captured Princess Leia from the clutches of the Empire, who were holding her captive for her treason. It turned out to be the turning point in his life, and from then on, Han went on to be one of the most relied upon fighters in the Rebel Alliance, whose loyalty and daring nature helped the Rebels fight the Empire.

He also fell in love with the beautiful princess, and their tempestuous romance developed into a deep and meaningful bond. They married a few years after the Battle of Endor and went on to have three children.

Karvel Parsis: the brash and magnetic Corellian, Parsis became Chief of State of the New Republic when Leia Organa Solo chose to step down. Tall and distinguished, with rust-colored hair, he continued to pursue the ideals of his predecessors, working for peace and prosperity in the young government. Highly idealistic, he backed Leia Organa Solo's bold proposal for demilitarization across the Republic, a policy which strongly divided the Republic, and nearly caused a revolt.

Prime Minister Tal Sorbin: the fiery dictator of the Falor System, Sorbin is highly intelligent, ambitious, and cunning, with silvery hair and intense violet eyes. As a young admiral in the Falorian army, he staged a daring coup of the system with help from the Empire. He then proceeded to declare a dictatorship over the entire system, and since ruled with an iron fist.

Senator Nels Milton: the earnest and patriotic senator from Falor, Milton was torn by his loyalty to once-close friend, Sorbin, and his faith in the New Republic. A pragmatic man, Milton strongly opposed Leia Organa Solo's demilitarization policy, which led to a near-revolt in the Republic.

Ayedanna Wey: the leader of the resurrected Nightsisters, she swore revenge on the Jedi, especially Luke Skywalker, who destroyed the Nightsisters years ago on Dathomir. She and a few other Nightsisters who escaped stole away to the relatively unknown planet Dandoleer where they went in hiding and waited until they grew in number. Sorbin eventually located her and the Nightsisters and struck a deal with them to destroy the Jedi on Yavin so that he could lead a revolt on Coruscant.
