Clone Wars Campaign: Jasper Falen, Romantic Pilot

Jasper Falen was a fun, somewhat lighthearted character created in the latter portion of the campaign by the player who ran A'tel. Conceived of as a dashing ladies' man in space, Jasper and his sidekick (an NPC Jawa named Kako) piloted a freighter named The Gentle Lover. Originally retained by Doxen to help rescue Senator Orelus of Melosia, Jasper and his ship later carried party members to Coruscant. There, Jasper has perhaps his best moment when the party came under attack and sought refuge in the Hapan Consulate: Jasper dodged a fusillade of blaster bolts and dramatically crashed The Gentle Lover into the front of the building so his allies could board and escape. Soon thereafter, when The Gentle Lover was shot down, Jasper became an employee of the Cassadines as pilot of The Knife's Edge.

Although it's hard for characters introduced late in the campaign to receive the attention and plotlines that the longstanding PCs do, Jasper proved to be an interesting addition to the group.

Jasper's Epilogue
"Following his adventures with Daal, Doxen, and Arresta, Jasper receives a message from a strange source: The Crimson Blade, his former ship, but they were dead and gone. But the weirdest thing is the message is from 2000 years in the past on the hull of a derelict from the Hyperspace Wars. The message is the emblem of The Crimson Blade spraypainted on the hull of a Mandalorian vessel. An Imperial archaeological team discovered it a wreck to fall out of Other Space. He had a mission, find his family. Purchasing a new vehicle christened The Loving Embrace and he starts his search. On his quest to find a path to Other Space he stayed in constant contact with Arresta true to his word to the strange Jedi. On his travels he liberates many masters of their slaves and women of their underthings with a wry smile and a wicked glance and a grumbling Jawa in tow."
