The Legend of Lentaro /Clint Eastwood: Jedi Knight
Okay, so my mentor Jedi based on Clint Eastwood is going to be named Lentaro Colward. He was once a great Jedi knight, on the verge of attaining the rank of Master Jedi. Then he was disgraced, and his first ever Padawan was killed in the incident.
I'm not going to go into detail about this incident, just in case any of my players come by this thread.
Suffice to say however, that when he went into self-imposed exile (he gave up on the Jedi Order, but they never gave up on him.) the stories of his astounding exploits still made their rounds in the Jedi Temple.
(Similar to the legends of Clint's character in Unforgiven.)
Most of these stories have been exaggerated, embellished, or some outright made up. A few of them are even toned-down compared to the reality.
What I'd like help with here are those legends. If people who are interested could write down a legend that a young Padawan might have overhead in the Temple and post here in this thread, that'd be great.
Just short, anecdotal stuff. They can be as realistic or as far-fetched as desired, but they have to be believable, if only by the most young and gullible Jedi hopeful.
I'll compile them to 'feed' my players before they meet this guy. They will be a little surprised when they meet this old, still-legged old man who needs a shave and has constant alcohol on his breath.
(Even more surprising when they eventually discover, most of the legends have a kernel of truth to them.)
