Xion Tel, Jedi Master by AdamWithers Xion Tel, Jedi Master by AdamWithers
Jedi Master Xion Tel, an NPC in the Star Wars RPG I run. I'm such a Wars-nerd it's just silly, but these characters from our game are real close to my heart.

Xion Tel, in particular, is interesting to me due to her rather unorthadox methodology and her existance in the gray zone of justice. When you are there to not only police your own, but to ask questions nobody wants answered, learn truths nobody wants to know, and go places nobody wants to go, it tends to change your perspective on people in general.

Anyway, you can read more on her and catch a write-up of the Omwati race I did, and see her stat-block for the Star Wars Saga Edition RPG on our blog: [link]

Gotta say... not familiar with her race, not familiar with the RPG, and I can only call myself HALF a Star-Wars nerd... but I bloody love this character. Her stance is cool, her outfit screams "Wild West sheriff" which REALLY works for her, and... yeah, she just looks awesome. Also kinda a fan of 'gray' Jedi, no idea why.

Thanks a lot. I appreciate the love. I think the reason people like Gray jedi is the same reason they like anti-heroes in general - you want to root for the good guy, but you want them to do all the same cool stuff the bad guys do. Gray Jedi use all the dark side powers you want to see, but still get to call themselves good guys (barely).

I've never been into anti-heroes or good guys that are basically villains who just HAPPEN to hurt the right people, but I see the appeal. ;)

I getcha. Heck, I actually prefer the goody-two-shoes heroes myself, and in all RPGs I kinda prefer the good path. But there's something terribly satisfying about a villain starting a monologue only to have said anti-hero go ahead and shoot them. Kinda like this: [link]

Oh, definitely. I just prefer heroic heroes. They can do dick things sometimes, walk the line you know? But they have to choose what's good and right over what's easier or more convenient.

Och aye. That's kinda the nature of heroics (in the modern sense, though in the sense of storytelling a hero is one who departs, undergoes a transformation of either themselves or something else, and returns in some manner).

And there's nothing wrong with being a huge Star Wars Nerd.

The non-Jedi-ish clothes make me think 'police' more than 'Jedi' - was this intentional?

In part. Largely it was because her role as an investigator and internal affairs officer requires her to be able to go places without everybody around going "HEY LOOKIE!!! A JEDI!!!" She has regular robes she'll wear, but only for official occasions.

Not really. Near as I could tell from other Omwati images I was able to find, that's just how their eyes look.

I like the character, the drawing is really good indeed. However, she seems more an arkanian to me due to her eyes and white hair...
I don't know, but, based on her appearance she looks like a blueish arkanian: an omwati has feathers instead of hair and has pupils in his eyes.

Maybe in her story something happened related to sith alchemy or whatever. Of course, as game masters, we can make up a subspecie of the omwati :)

PS: In the SW Kotor RPG I run there's a cathar jedi weapon master called Trona Fili. He's two meters tall and his fur is a little longer and wilder, but when I first saw your picture of Horath I thought to myself: they must be cousins :D

Every pic I saw of Omwati had pupil-less eyes, so that's intentional and based on the admittedly little research material I had (mostly the Alien Anthology books and similar supplements for the RPG). The hair... I tried to make it look more feathery in the color but it wasn't as obvious as I had wanted. I approached it from the perspective that 'feathers for hair' was a little more flexible. The hair is diaphanous and has the texture and general appearance of feathers, but with the flexibility and body of hair. If you saw her hair unbound it would probably be more obvious, though. And like I said, I didn't sell the effect in this shot as much as I wanted to.

Thanks for the comments though. Glad to see other GMs enjoying my work :)

Her skin and eyes remind me of the Arkanian race, except her skin is a little more blue then white lol Very nicely done though <3

O.o...do you do commissions?

Oh man its been so long since I raided Wookiepedia to learn about the SW universe so I forget what race your character is ^^; Oh wait...you said Omwati duh. She looks gorgeous! I positively love her pose (is a fan of duel wielders). I especially like the detail you put into her clothes, the vest in particular.

I currently have a Hapan padawan I'm trying to draw ^^; sadly only clothes references I have are long flowy dresses and the rough and tumble stuff Tenel Ka wears TT^TT I need to find the happy middle ground. I digress...thats why I asked if you do commissions ^^;

I got a nice texture from this site [link] and used a layer mask to cut it down for the vest, then set that layer to 'overlay' and played with the colors, using a deep purple/maroon on the base vest and golds in the overlay. Lastly, I painted just a touch of bright yellow-gold on the base vest in the highlights, and that's what made it pop.

Just so you know :D

Also do I detect a hint of irony?

If a certain other Omwati had asked more questions and looked at inconvenient truths the Suncrusher may never have be made or done what it did
