Age : 57, Life span of approx 400 years due to nanoid modifications and access to the force.

Height : 6'1

Build : Athletic, not overly muscled, but toned & well built.

Ewan is a high ranking/accomplished Dukerian Jedissi.  While he might occasionally fall under Foxx's command his rank technically exceeds hers, and it is almost certain his powers do.

Born on a barely settled planet almost abandoned by star union his childhood was harsh, which by turns has resulted in a personality that is exceptionaly accepting, understanding, violently protective, paranoid, aggressive, duplicitous, secretive and nurturing.

When Dukerians won his home planet from Star Union for required metals they dealt with Ewans family, who held the somewhat dubiously attained and held the leadership position under Star Union through a variety of gang style tactics.  Throughout the negotiations the Dukerians involved stayed in the Andrade manor house and in any spare moments Ewan pressed them for information, eventually convincing them to take him away with them when they left.

Aboard the TGSS Santise Ewan would have his first true glimpse of the infinite black of space and in that moment knew he was home. From that day forth his body mind and soul were dedicated to Fuker, and the Dukerian cause with fanaticism.

Weapons : Ewan is skilled in all tech weapons, especially as related to combat.  Early in his career his reputation was made based on devastating bombs placed with outstanding accuracy and bravery well into Star Union territory, and he quickly rose through the ranks of saboteurs. From there he would go on to prove the same level of excellence time and time again, excelling at front line combat, assassination, infiltration, espionage and recruitment.  He became renowned for his skill with several types of ballistic, blaster and laser based weapons. He eventually applied and was swiftly approved and recruited to the Jedissi program. As part of his training Ewan constructed and was fully trained in use of his light saber.  His skill is above average though not highly creative.  When traveling in places which are technological no-go zones it is the only weapon he carries. 

Relationships : None.

Things to keep in mind,

Dukerian Jedissi are most closely aligned with 'grey' or 'rogue' jedi.  they are not *True Jedi, and they may possess characteristics usually identified as 'Sith'

The Jedi Code as first laid out by Master Odan-Urr, is prominent amoung Ewan's beliefs,  it goes "There is no emotion; there is peace. There is no ignorance; there is knowledge. There is no passion; there is serenity. There is no chaos; there is harmony. There is no death; there is the Force." 

Other teachings which also have had an impact upon Ewans include

  • "To be brave in battle proves nothing. A Jedi should be prepared to put aside fear, regret, and uncertainty and either fight, run, surrender, or die."
  • "If a Jedi ignites his lightsaber, he must be ready to take a life. If he is not so prepared, he must keep his weapon at his side."
  • "Do not come to rely on the Force to the detriment of your other senses and abilities."

    Since your mind is not physical,
    No one else can destroy it.
    But because of its attachments to the body,
    It is harmed by physical suffering.

  • The only reason a warrior is alive is to fight, and the only reason a warrior fights is to win. Otherwise, why be a warrior?
    - Miyamoto Mushashi

    Must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain... Bene Gissert Litany Against Fear

    Power of the mind is infinite, while brawn is limited.
    Koichi Tohei

    Even a wise man acts within the limitations of his own nature...The senses have been conditioned by attraction to the pleasant and aversion to the unpleasant. Do not be ruled by them; they are obstacles in your path.
    Bhagavad Gita 3:33-34

    There is no truth. There is only perception.
    Gustave Flaubert

    Flow with whatever may happen, and let your mind be free;
    Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing.
    This is the ultimate.
    Chuang Tsu

    **Ewan has not attained full status as a Dukerian Jedissi yet as he has not yet chosen to undergo the required trials for Ascension though (as of current timelines) his training is complete.

    After the death of Duker, the Dukerian cause, Gold Union, fell prey to beauracracy and political infighting. The army, deeply demoralised by the loss of Duker, suffered losses of entire units, and planets formerly havens for the Dukerian cause opted to withraw from the Union.  Supply lines were severed, leadership is scattered, selfish, and unwilling to compromise.  Already resources are being pillaged from within. Some Gold Union members have turned traitor giving up names and locations of planets, weapons, and other members of the Union. Factions have developed both more extreme and concilitory than the Gold Union united under Duker Duck.  Chaos prevails and the Jedissi have begun to disperse. To quietly wait, recruit and train for the day Duker Duck might be reborn, a day which might be hundreds or thousands of years off.  Indeed it was long believed Duker Duck was the final incarnation of his spirit and this has led to speculation the cause is finished altogether.

    Ewan, certain the cause is no longer salvagable has followed Foxx to Rikers.  Territory unlocatable by Star Union, or by any member of the Dukerians save himself and the now deceased Duker Duck.  He has been granted leave officially and officially is due to return.  Having no life outside the cause he has nowhere to go to, however, he has become certain that the cause beyond salvage.  Best preserved perhaps in the manner the Jedissi have adopted of departing, hiding themselves from detection, and waiting for the return of their savior. However, having never completed his ascension and attained full status he is not permitted to train. For the first time in his life he is without an outside source of determination and he does not know what to do or how to do it. He is dispirited, and directionless.
