Eréndra Sivron is a character I’m playing in a current Star Wars Saga Edition game, GMed by my ever-talented fiance, Ben. She is currently sitting at level 3, with two levels in Jedi and one level in Nobel. I felt that since I’d done one post on a previous character, I’d love to do another. Those interested in other characters I’ve played can see Vyrashanni, Daughter of Stars.
First, we’ll look at Eréndira’s stats.
Strength: 6 (-2)
Dexterity: 8 (-1)
Constitution: 8 (-1)
Intelligence: 12 (+1)
Wisdom: 17 (+3)
Charisma: 16 (+3)
Those that have seen Vyrashanni’s stats will notice that these are a LOT lower on average. That’s because during the campaign where I played Vyrashanni, Ben allowed us to roll our stats. Meaning, I got to roll 4D6 and drop the lowest number, and then assign the six results to her stats as I saw fit. This time, he had us use the Point-Buy system, during which the numbers you use in your stats cost a specific amount of “points”. At level 2, when we started, we had 25 points. Because I wanted a really high Wisdom and Charisma score, I had to take serious deficiencies to all the other stats.
These deficiencies in her stats also translate to her defenses.
Fortitude Defense: 13
Reflex Defense: 13
Will Defense: 18
Eréndira is slightly deficient in hit points because of her penalty to her Con stat. She’s sitting at 39, and for a level 3 character, that’s not so hot. She has an average speed of 6 (typical for a medium-sized creature) and a base attack of +1. She had 6 Force Points, a single Destiny point, no modifier to her Initiative, and a +9 to her Perception.
Eréndira is a female Mirialan. Now, Mirialans aren’t statted out in the actual Saga Edition books. But according to Wookiepedia, they’re “near human” which means they would stat out just like a human character. She’s 20 years old and stands at a rather small 5’4″, weighing 120 lbs. Since Mirialans aren’t very well known (unless you’ve watched the Clone Wars cartoon currently airing on Cartoon Network), this is what Wookiepedia has to say about them.
The Mirialan people were religious and practiced a primitive understanding of the Force. They believed each individual’s actions contributed to their destiny. A Mirialan would place a unique, often geometrically repeated tattoo on their face and hands to signify that they had completed a certain test or task, or achieved sufficient adeptness at a certain skill. The number of tattoos would thus often act as a good indicator of how mature and/or skilled a Mirialan was.
Some well known Mirialans withing the Star Wars Universe include Barriss Offee and Luminara Unduli.
Eréndira is not a terribly skillful individual. Being a Jedi, she doesn’t get very many skill options, period. And with a mere +1 to her Intelligence score, she didn’t get to train in very many of them. However, she does have a few skills, and the ones she has are good for her.
Knowledge Galactic Lore +7
Knowledge Social Sciences +7
Use the Force +14 (thanks to Skill Focus)
Eréndira’s Feats are very focused. This character was built to use the Force, and her feats (and talents) reflect that. She has the following Feats: Force Sensitivity, Weapons Proficiency Lightsabers, Weapons Proficiency Pistols, Weapons Proficiency Simple Weapons, Force Training x3, Skill Focus – Use the Force
Her talents number only two right now, but both allow her an extra use of one of her Force Powers. She currently has Telekinetic Savant and Influence Savant.
Eréndira speaks three languages fluently. She speaks Basic and Mirialan, the two languages that would come most naturally to her. She also speaks Shri’wook, and interesting choice for her, and one I plan on working into her backstory.
The most impressive part of Eréndira is her ability to wield the Force. She has no weapons, no blaster, no lightsaber. Her only weapon is the force. Because of that, at level three, she has twelve Force powers. They are as follows:
- Mind Trick
- Move Object
- Move Object
- Mind Shard
- Mind Shard
- Force Slam
- Force Shield
Through her heavy focus on the use of the Force, Eréndira is similar to Vyrashanni. However, they are two completely separate and distinct characters. Eréndira is not as primitive as Vyrashanni, for starters. And their backstories are completely different. And now you can enjoy some concept art!

Eréndira was born to a very loving mother and father on the city planet of Coruscant. From a very young age, she was a very frail child. But she had always had a very strong grasp on the force. Because of this, Eréndira was given up to a Jedi Academy at the tender age of 4. Because of this, Eréndira has very little memory of her mother or father or even her home on Coruscant. She stayed for her youngling training on Coruscant and then was taken on by the great Jedi Master, Cham Sivron. Master Sivron was a beautiful female Twilek Jedi who trained her from the age of 10 until she was 18.
At the age of 18, Eréndira was hit with a terrible tragedy. She and her Master had been sent on what was supposed to be a routine mission on a small ship. However, their ship was hit by a barrage of Mandalorian war ships. Without even a moment to think, they were being fired on. Her Master hid her away in the cargo hold, making her promise that she would not come out. The news had to be passed on to the Council, and she was the only one who could do it. And so, Eréndira could do nothing but helplessly watch as her Master was cut down by Mandalorian forces.
She knew that she was supposed to stay hidden and quiet. But the entire ship’s crew had been massacred along with her Master. She acted out of anger. An intense wave of the Force spilled forth from her, destroying a large portion of the Mandalorians aboard her ship and seriously crippling her as well. Eréndira blacked out on the ship and floated through space for weeks before finally landing, bereaved and broken, on a tiny planet that quickly became nothing more than a resource dump for the Empire. She and the peoples she had lived beside became refugees and were sent to the desolate planet of Geonosis.
