Character/Costume Description

My Character is a Jedi Master named Chiang Wan Kegani and he was born on the same planet, in the same province as Obi Wan Kenobi, hence the "Wan" in the name, although Chiang Wan is older than Obi Wan by quite a few years. Chiang Wan was a good friend of Qui Gon Jinn's and felt a strong fellowship and responsibility for young Obi Wan Kenobi, taking an active part in his training when requested by Master Qui Gon. When Obi Wan had become curious of his biological family and home planet, it was Chiang Wan who took him to visit his birthplace and family, which he had only fuzzy memories of, but when it came time to meet his parents he suddenly decided against it and he and Chiang Wan returned to Coruscant. Chiang Wan is a serious but gentle man, but is one of the finest swordsmen in the Jedi ranks and has trained many Jedi in the nearly lost art of Lightsaber to Lightsaber combat. Chiang Wan has long felt that the Sith are still a threat and as Jedi began leaving the order he lobbied hard with the Jedi Council to reintroduce swordsmanship training to both Jedi Knights and Padawan Learners which has been implemented but will take some time what with the number of Jedi on outworld assignments. Chiang Wan Kegani was made Master after his successful leadership of a Jedi peacekeeping force which was sent to quell a genocidal revolt on Cestis 3, in which peace was reestablished with no civilian losses and a minimum of enemy casualties. Master Kegani's level headed, yet authoritative approach to delicate situations has made him very valuable to the Jedi Order.

Chiang Wan Kegani's costume has evolved over the years but maintains the familiar lines of typical Jedi garb. He has only replaced his Lightsaber once, and chose to use an unusual material for his very detailed Lightsaber hilt, which is similar in color to the metal copper. The design of his Lightsaber was influenced by the traditional aesthetics of his homeworld, which although he has a healthy detachment from, still holds a place in his heart. His utility belt is of traditional appearance but he has built belt pouches which are different from the general issue design. Master Kegani's costume is in the details and each pouch holds some tool or device useful in his duties. Along with his tools, Master Kegani has also built a custom probe droid about 6 inches in diameter which can help him in many mission situations. This probe he can carry under his robes in a soft pouch, when not in use. Most recently Master Kegani's costume has been undergoing minor new changes which will bring an even more distinctive and striking appearance to his countenance.
