I often like to adapt my character to the direction of the story, but...
1. I love the support role in missions, even if there is no combat. I also like the role of the old soldier, providing advice and experience.
2. I would like any type of infiltration / espionage plot/ encounters.
3. except for the "getting the party killed" part, I would enjoy combat encounters (we are the rebels).
4. If I take up the piloting option, I really enjoy the advanced starship stuff from "Starships".
5. for the above, if the whole party is involved in some way, I would love a multi ship encounter.
As for my goals, Mykl wants to get the skum out of power and see a return to the Republic, so I see him being on board for just about anything. He does not want to be team leader (bad memories), but will be critical of bad leadership.
I plan to keep going with the whole soldier Gun guy (now mixed with pilot), but could branch out into infiltration sabotage (explosives?).
