PostPosted: Thu May 10, 2018 10:56 am    Post subject: build thread of Doctor Aphra Reply with quote

Hello there, lately i've been thinking if Doctor Aphra could be on RL

i posted a question about that this was my answer:
If I was someone with an Aphra costume who felt strongly about getting her into RL, I'd make a "build thread" in the smuggler section, post photos of the costume, and list all her heroic traits and actions -- especially where she goes against the Empire. (For example, General Draven was Not Nice, but his strong Rebellion ties make it extremely unlikely that he'd ever be a 501st character. Edrio and Benthic Two Tubes, on the other hand, left the Rebellion to be Not Nice somewhere else, so that probably contributed to them being dual-Legion even though they still fight the Empire.)

So here i am.
I have an approved 501st Doctor Aphra, i'll post here the photos and reference photos as well her traits and actions.

so here i am doing research for here =)

and now i'm going to research everything about her...to try understand if she could be on RL

- She started on th Darth Vader series, she’s another strong female protagonist but she’s also very different from Rey and Jyn. She’s not exactly the altruistic hero but she’s not evil either. She’s independent in the sense that she holds no allegiance to the Rebels or the Empire.
Aphra herself is an archaeologist, and in the first issue she comes across her Jedi-obsessed estranged father.
she has 2 droids, BT-1 and Triple Zero, they are assassins, the relishes killing and torturing fleshy beings. but Aphra always keeps them in check so that they dont kill anyone

http://www.geekexchange.com/lists/doctor-aphra-5-reasons-you-should-be-reading/


- Part of that fun is that she, by her very nature, illustrates a moral complexity somewhat unusual in Star Wars. Aphra is very clearly not a hero, nor even a good person — something demonstrated when she clashes with the Rebellion in issues of Star Wars — but she's not exactly a villain, either, despite being allied with the Empire. Think of her as an archaeologist version of the bounty hunters from The Empire Strikes Back, perhaps.
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-who-is-doctor-938244

- in some comics, she formed an alliance with Luke, Leia and Sana.
"While Aphra is something of a genius in her own right, her ability to think on her toes is what has kept her alive in situations where she was less than brilliant. She’s managed to stay alive on more than one occasion when Vader felt his use for her had ended, but it isn’t just her fast-talking that has set Aphra ahead. Aphra’s knack for droid repair most recently came in handy while she was escaping an attack on Sunspot Prison alongside Princess Leia and Sana Starros. After forming a tense alliance with the two — and an especially tense one with Sana, who Aphra shares an interesting past with — Aphra’s quick fix to a security droid provided the trio a way out, while the droid took out their attackers. While Aphra might have sooner left her newfound allies behind (they were, after all, her captors) her own personal genius saved her own skin for just a little longer."

“Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel” - Luke's partner
https://www.cbr.com/luke-skywalker-doctor-aphra-marvel-star-wars-crossover-screaming-citadel/

in this issue "THE QUEENS HUNGRY HANDS IN DOCTOR APHRA #7"
"Luke and Aphra were on the run from the Queen’s monsters as Han, Leia and Sana have come to the rescue, thinking Luke was kidnapped by the infamous archaeologist.
While checking if all the exits are sealed, Luke questions why Aphra would be on the side of the Empire. She explains that her mother was killed during the Clone Wars and that although the Empire isn’t perfect, it keeps people safe. For ordinary people, any peace is better than war. Luke reiterates that Aphra really is like Han and not that bad underneath. Aphra, on the other hand, believes that Luke has lead a sheltered life, until he reveals to her that Empire killed his family.
They are completely different and yet you cannot take your eyes off the page when they are together on it. It is clear that Luke’s earnestness is slowly affecting Aphra, though she is trying really, really hard to avoid it. I am really enjoying this aspect of the comic, and I think it was a great decision to pair these two up. Additionally, Sana's presence and their history together also have an effect on Aphra - she hides the fact that she used Sana to find the Rebels."

She betrays Vader several times and lives, but ultimatly Vader kills her by air lock

in this website has a lot of info on Aphra journey http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Chelli_Lona_Aphra#cite_note-Doctor_Aphra_2-7

in the comic : Star Wars 18: Rebel Jail, Part III
she was part of the Rebel Alliance

"It is a period of renewed hope for the Rebellion.
Rebel Heroes Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and
Princess Leia have captured Darth Vader's ally,
droid expert Dr. Aphra, to obtain Imperial
information.

While the Princess is securing Dr. Aphra at
Sunspot Prison, an unknown attacker assumes
control of the facility and begins eliminating the
prisoners. Elsewhere, Luke and Han have taken
a nerf smuggling job in order to regain the
Alliance funds Han lost gambling.

Back at the prison, Leia and Sana Starros have
forged an alliance with Dr. Aphra to take down
the prison's mysterious invader - an enemy who
may not be so mysterious after all"

God day! Nice job though Aphra is a 501st costume.

I am Dawn Bright LMO of the 501st Legion.

I was the main CRL writer and researcher for the Three Dr. Aphra CRLS the 501st released. I read (over and over) the comics and researched the costumes. After deliberation the costume is not seen as a good guy or a hero/

here is the CRL please feel free to apply with your local garrison! Very Happy


https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:DZ_Doctor_Aphra_Red_Vest_A

This costume is the 501st version. I have personally read all the comics and while she is kinda grey in later episodes shes still kinda a bad person o.o.

This costume you made is from when she personally works for Darth Vader
