Talk:Frosty Romanae Tarentae
This is an automated message, it may have been placed here in error. A Wiki Staffer will manually check this page soon.
This page has been added to Category:Project Realism Manual Checks because your homeworld is Urkupp which was not found during an automated search of the Wookieepedia list of Terrestrial planets and a closer inspection by Wiki Staff is required to ensure Star Wars realism.

- Confirmed. Urkupp exists, but was destroyed in 3,996 BBY (according to Urkupp). Dashades still exist, but on other planets. --BenevolentWhiner 22:16, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
Species and Birth
Is it possible for a Dashade to be born in 3BBY? With the destruction of their homeworld and the very few Dashade ever seen around the galaxy, it would make it very hard for the species to live long enough to birth someone in 3 BBY.Scyrone 21:53, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
- This is a quote from the Dashade page on the Wookiepedia:
"In addition to these preserved warriors, rumors of Dashade sightings continued sporadically over the millennia. For example, there was evidence that Dashade mercenaries participated in the Great Jedi Purge. Some have even theorized that Dashade colonies founded before Urkupp's destruction may have existed."
- This means that they were around in the years before BBY
"New Republic Security also became concerned that lost colonies of Dashade may have started working for the Imperial Remnant and in the criminal underworld."
- This means there's the possibility that they are present in 8 ABY+.
These quotes should waylay your concerns. Archangel 02:08, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
- Eh, kinda. The wording they use is "rumors", "theorized", and "lost colonies . . . may have". In other words, it's not definite. There is no evidence. Honestly, with the lack of evidence it would be hard to tell if they were around, because theories, rumors, and possibilities aren't facts. That and rarely do you see any Dashade in the galaxy, and the ones that you do see were either frozen or had their family killed somehow.Scyrone 04:22, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
- For what it's worth, one of the kings of Falleen has a squad of Dashade bodyguards in one of the Clone Wars webcomics. --Xanos 08:41, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
- Yes, the ones that were chryogenically frozen from when they tried to escape offworld. They were passed down in a Royal Falleen house to be used whenever they needed an excellent assassin or warrior of some sort.Scyrone 11:55, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
- So they're actually in line with canon? Haha, I'm impressed, I figured they were another case of TCW trampling over existing continuity :P Actually, weren't there some in the TOR stuff somewhere? *goes to check* Ah yes, Inquisitor companion character; knew I'd seen one recently. Obviously though, until TOR comes out, it's impossible to know whether this guy/group will outlast the Great Galactic War anymore than the original group outlasted the Great Sith War. --Xanos 13:09, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
- So can I use the Dashade race and say "Frosty" was born on a mysterious unnamed colony of Urkupp? Can I use the Force in some sort of special way, being able to connect and disconnect from the Force when I want with the disadvantage of being a poor Force user? If I can't use the Force than does that mean I can't use this race? --Frosty 12:12, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm not exactly an authority on the whole Dashade thing. But I don't really remember there being a Dashade Force-user anywhere in canon (Khem is for gameplay reasons, so that doesn't count). The fact that they have resistance to the Force would probably indicate that they'd have a hard time wielding it, not that they're like the Vong and dead to it. My best guess is that, while they have a high "Force Defense", they also have a hard time using it because they're shielded from it by genetics? --Kazmir (talk) 08:01, 23 July 2013 (MDT)
Honestly, as long as you make it somewhat "believable," I don't think it matters.
There are always exceptions to rules. Even the most Force sensitive species has individuals who aren't.
I like the way you were going with it. Make it that he can use it, but that it is a struggle. Use that as one of the flaws that make YOUR character interesting.
p.s. Turning it "on" and "off" at will = bad in my book. Just make it something that your character deals with amongst a lot of his peers who can telekinetically fling things around all day long. --Solari (talk) 14:56, 23 July 2013 (MDT)
