The Disowned Drunkard
Calph has gone through multiple phases of being my definitive main character. She took the position from Ziodus in February 2014, lost it to Pippera in April 2015, and gained it back again in April 2016. Despite losing the status of "PvP Main" to Sage Vhiallia during 4.0 Calph re-earned the title just prior to 5.0, and has maintained it ever since.
Born to a senator and a soldier on Coruscant, the young Calph had numerous paths laid out for her as she was growing up; both parents were very keen for her to follow in their footsteps. Their plans were upset, however, when Calph snuck along to an anti-senatorial rally with her University friends, during which she was subjected to an unknown number of alcoholic beverages. The very next thing she knew, she was onboard a smuggler's freighter to Nar Shaddaa, wearing nothing but a Cantina-dancer's 'uniform'. To make matters even more confusing, the crew with which she had now been signed up with kept referring to her by an entirely different name. Since this incident, having been disowned by her parents and unable to reclaim her old life, Calph started to make a name for herself on the smuggling scene, using her gains to drown memories of her failed past in drink.
The Elusive Jedi
Miorahna is only my second ever Jedi Knight, created in December of 2015. She swiftly managed to depose her predecessor, Rahnga, who is technically still my longest- serving character still in existence despite being left behind on The Harbinger. Her outfit is additionally my own personal pick for the best outfit which I have ever given to any single character of mine. Since 5.0, she has become "main Alt" on the Republic side.
Once believed to be one of the most promising swordswomen of the Jedi Order and an almost guaranteed choice for the Jedi Council, Miorahna's sudden self-exile from the Order is a mystery few could hope to explain. Some believe that she died in battle and the tale of self-exile is a complete myth, whilst others claim that she is searching for her second Padawan, whom several believe to have been claimed by the Dark Side of the Force.
The Constrained Learner
Since her predecessor Eirahnos had been left completely abandoned on The Harbinger, Vhiallia was the first character created on The Red Eclipse following my transfer, making use of an Instant Level 60 Character token. Despite having been created solely with the Eternal Consular Achievement in mind, she acted as the "PvP Main" on the Republic Faction during 4.0.
Seemingly unable to cap her ambition, Vhiallia's decision to depart her master's side and seek out a powerful Sith Lord rumoured to haunt the mountains in the wilderness of Alderaan led to her body being possessed and used to serve the means of her target, himself but a non-corporeal spirit whose own body had died long before. Although she was able to eventually wrest control from the spirit after two months, she could not completely purge the interloper from her being, contrary to what she obstinately believes to this day. As a result, she finds herself indulging in seemingly random acts of passion and mass destruction, and has once been seen by a passer-by obliviously arguing in tears with herself; traits brought on by the constantly-nagging voice of the Sith spirit.
The Tenacious Veteran
Ziodus is currently the longest-serving active character to have been transferred from The Harbinger, and was my Main Character from March 2013 until February 2014. He's mainly kept around nowadays for the rare pets and mounts he possesses which no other character has, and, until Calph started getting involved during 5.0, he was also the only character to have made any progress with Galactic StarFighter, having mastered the most ships at 5.
There isn't much that the dogged soldier Ziodus can't claim to have done during his time in the Republic military; his experience ranges from small-scale covert operations to large-scale ground invasions, and he's also been able to take to the skies in his personalised Strike Fighter. As much as he owes his job to it, the war has started taking a toll on him, instilling fears that, due to his numerous campaigns, he is increasingly unlikely to father a child to carry on his family's name. He has made it no secret that he hopes that the various uprisings of rogue Sith, notably the Dread Masters, will result in the Empire eventually acknowledging its faults and brokering a new peace.
The Discredited Officer
Age: Unknown (conflicting reports)
Despite losing the status of Main in April 2016 after a year in the position, Pippera has accomplished the most out of any character of mine during this time. She possesses nearly every single Operation title (only missing out on the Nightmare Power titles and The Eternal Warrior), and was also the first character on whom I discovered a new-found tolerance for PvP when the gear-prices were reduced in Patch 3.3.
Presently a member of the prestigious Cresh-7 Intelligence Team, Pippera's youthful looks - an estimated physical age of around 19 - create an impression of inexperience which belies her skills in the field and creates a bizarrely confusing reconstruction of her past. Previous records indicate that she used to be an up-and-coming captain in the Imperial Military for three years before being captured by Gamorreans (losing her right hand in the process) and duly being relegated to supporting Intelligence in a non-essential role; it is believed that it was in this capacity that she was noticed by the Kel Dor operative Kars Danh, who quickly recruited her into his fledgling team the moment her punishment duties were ended.
The Vindictive Executioner
Ferok'ia is the only Dark vs. Light Event character of mine to continue in active service, while all the rest have either been forgotten or deleted. The reasons for her continued existence are very simple; I couldn't be bothered to put in the work in 'rescuing' her predecessor Cynare's gear and it was just easier to leave him behind and work instead on Ferok'ia. Since then, she's continued on to become one of my most favourite characters of all time.
The youngest of two siblings to attend the Sith Academy, Ferok'ia was always bolder than her brother Cynare; he lacked a stomach for the torture chambers and the experimental labs, which contained sights which awed and delighted the young girl. Their parents' disappointment and low opinion of Cynare rubbed off on his sister, leading to a growing rift between them. Since his recent mysterious disappearance, Ferok'ia has abandoned this revulsion and begun a galaxy-wide search, tearing up planet after planet in her anger and sheer desperation to find him.
The Juvenile Acolyte
The first Light-Side Sith I ever created, Vahnora's path made me realise the potential values of playing a Light-Sided Sith, which then led to future Sith adhering to this path as well. Light-sided Sith are surprisingly very honour-bound, and it makes for a pleasant change compared to the "death, lightning, death!" of more Dark-Sided tendencies.
The childlike Twi'lek Vahnora was formerly a slave on a wealthy Balmorran Noble's estate before being captured with several of her fellow slaves by Sith Raiders. Discovering that she was Force-sensitive, they immediately dispatched her to Korriban to be subjected to the vicious trials as an acolyte. Singled out from the first as a likely contender for Tuk'ata supper due to her apparent inability to unlock her true potential, Vahnora completely vanished without a trace from the Academy during the 'simple' task of clearing out a Shyrack infestation from one of the tombs. Although her bones have never been found, the overseers simply assumed that she had died a timely and unworthy death, another lost soul claimed by the Shyracks.
The Rebuilt Mutineer
Phirella is the seventh Bounty Hunter to have joined the ranks. Although her predecessors rarely managed to secure themselves a 'happy' place amongst my characters - as in I could come up with neither a decent outfit nor a decent personal story - Phi has managed to surpass all of them and is a Hunter I'm actually proud of. Gasp.
Orphaned in a tram-crash on her homeworld of Corellia, which also badly damaged her face and robbed her of the use of her left eye, Phirella dropped out of subsequently state-funded education in order to pursue petty thievery with the objective of self-funding 'luxury' cybernetic implants deemed not necessary in reinforcing her face during the emergency surgery, such as an actual cybernetic eye. She was soon press-ganged into a gang of pirates who preyed on the Republic shipyards, who forced her to prove her skills with a blaster to determine whether or not she had any value. After becoming one of the more successful 'tax agents' of the gang, she encouraged a successful mutiny, before subsequently disappearing with all of the deceased leader's pilfered wealth. Using the skills she had gained, she turned to the profession of Bounty Hunting to ensure that she would keep moving from planet-to-planet to avoid the wrath of her once-fellow mutineers.
