Order 66 by Jonboy2312 Order 66 by Jonboy2312
This is a remake of my old "Eriawynn as a Jedi" piece, which was deleted by some incompetent DA staff member who was obviously unaware George Lucas permits and welcomes fan work, even fan movies, even using Lucasfilm material such as soundtracks, backgrounds etc, as long as no profit is made.

Well, here's my second take on this idea. The original idea came from :iconnalafontaine: - she once started something of a little challenge for everyone - to put your original character of choice in the role of a Jedi Knight, thus creating a New Jedi Council by our common effort :)

Nala and I chose to go against the established "expanded universe" with our little Jedi project. In our own, personal view of the future of the Star Wars universe, the New Republic will bring back the best traditions from the past, starting a new era of peace (mostly) for another thousand years at least. The Sith threat have been pushed away for a long time. The restored Jedi Order, under Grand Master Luke Skywalker, will spend years restoring ancient Jedi knowledge, seeking for lost artifacts, but eventually will bring back the full glory of the Order along with their best traditions and the dress code as well. (of course the Order will be reformed a bit - as it turned out that forcing celibacy can do more damage than allowing Jedi relationships, as Anakin's example shows).

Why reject the "expanded universe"? Simply because it's gone down the wrong path, and has long passed any stretch of credibility. Where's the peace, that the Jedi and the Rebels fought and died for? The Old Republic stood for millenia, and now a new war every few years? No Sith for a thousand years, and now a DOZEN of Lukes's padawans turn to the dark side? Every writer just had to have his own "fallen Jedi", even Jacen Solo, Leia's and Han's son... Not only it's just plain wrong, it's plain ridiculous. That's just the tip of an icebergo of nonsense, contradictions, discontinuity and chaos. Sorry, but most of "expanded universe" is just a huge pile of Bantha poodoo.

Where do our characters fit in? Well, as you can see I used my character from a totally unrelated manga project I'm workin on for Kasen Comics, placing her in the Star Wars universe (this was exactly what Nala's idea is all about). Everyone seems to adore my Eriawynn, so... I thought "why not" ^^'

The Star Wars universe has hundreds of thousands of worlds ("tens of thousands", for example, were supposedly willing to join the Separatist Movement in Episode 2...). And there's even more sentient races than worlds. Only a tiny fraction of them were mentioned. And I've placed Eriawynn in that universe, inventing a homeworld for her, where who we normally call "Elves" would be a race closely related to regular, common humans, and would retain elements of their culture in, for instance, their new space-age architecture. I even came up with a backstory for her, involving Starkad in a new role, as well. I'm not going to elaborate on it here, as I think I'll reuse the story (in a new universe, though), in another manga :D

Anyway... this version of Eriawynn is a padawan during the last days of the Old Republic, her master perishes in Operation Knightfall (a.k.a "order 66"), but she survives... why neither Yoda nor Obi-Wan knew of her survival is a part of my story I mentioned earlier, and involves Starkad helping her out (and yes, a love story between the two yet again) ^^
Under the New Republic, she returns to the Jedi Order and helps Master Skywalker with her knowledge of what the Order was like before the fall...

Heh, I have to admit I really like her as a Jedi, and I hope you, fellow Deviants, like her in this role too ^^ You'd better, I was working on this piece for three days >_< Without :iconnalafontaine: 's coloring of some parts of my linearts (the buildings in the background, most of all!), it would have taken at least two more days... Whew, it's done now, though :) This scene shows Eriawynn struggling to survive Palpatine's order #66, when the clones turned against her...

Amazing picture. Although I think I would have proffered a picture where the clones are over whelming the Jedi. At all directions unloading everything they can.  Other than the concerned look on the Jedi's face, he seems to have this in the bag. Still great though!

Ah Order 66, probably the most chilling moment in all of Star Wars history.

Just one question regarding the blue blasts. Is that coming from the clone trooper behind her? Because if it is, he really is a bad shot (funny how the stormtroopers suck at shooting at our heroes and yet the clone troopers are way better shots). But hey, the stormtrooper effect exists in Star Wars

And remember that some clones didn't obey the order(like CC-5052,a.k.a Commander Bly, was VERY reluctant, as were his troops).

I like your idea of a better ezpanded universe. I personally have had many a star wars story fall on its face because I got caught up in omething else. One of the ones I want to see develop is about a small group of Imperials who narrowly escape a civilian rebellion on an obscure outer rim world and then I don't know what happens cause I haven't gotten that far yet. Phew.

By the way, why are there red blaster bolts? The clones have blasters that shoot blue stuff.

There are many possibilities - A third party 9a bounty hunter, perhaps)assisting them? Or it's several years later, when the E11 blaster was being introduced into service, but the Phase III armor hasn't been introduced yet... so we have some troopers in Phase II gear shooting red bolts? :D

Or, it could be that there were some battle droids just off the screen. In the Star Wars Clone Wars comic volume 9 in one battle, 3 jedi(whose names I don't remember) were fighting against clones AND droids.

I thought you did a great job! The positions and the coloring are remarkable!

In liked the idea behind your character as well. It was worth thinking about. I've been in love with the Kotor aspect for a while now, where Jedi were every where once upon a time. I agree, it's time to bring it back!

its not that hard to believe the new republic fell so quickly, it would be impossible for the rebels to wipe out all sentimentally (spelling) towards the empire, Palpatine was no fool and probably would have had a backup plan against any faction who would overthrow him, because he is spitefull that way, but the dark jedi point i can totally agree with.

I guess but what model? It had to have been someone else because every thing from the DC-15 to the Reciprocating Quad-laser turret had blue lasers.

I like the books they had to start coordinating though, like it was said above there were way to many contradictions. they did their best to fix it. having Jacen solo become Dark Lord of the sith was good. very good. it brook the standard in-flaw-ability the Jedi had built up. As early as the first book in the NJO series you can see that Jacen doen't go along with the normal Jedi views.

On a different note I do like you picture though.
