I just read Ace's biography and he's from Argentina, Italian descent. And... oh god, I'm so happy! I am Argentine-Italian descendant too! For some reason, the coincidence gave me a strange euphoria. Do you think I'm half crazy to rejoice just for that? XD Also, I like developers do that sort of things, give place to all world inside the game and not just "EE.UU, Canada and give thanks". Claudette is French, Ace is Argentine and Jake is... Asian? Latin? No matter, he's cool anyway? Of couse.
I don’t remember there being any clear cut lore as to where the rest of the survivors are from, but I miss things and forget things a lot so what the hell do I know??? I never gave the others much thought on where they were from just because I was more focused on their given backstories and interactions, but I liked the idea that Jake is Korean American! I forget who it was that I saw that headcanon from… I wanna say is was Phillip? But gee I really don’t remember.
But aaaaaAAA FRIEN thats so neat!!! owo That’s always really nice to have a character from a game that’s similar to ya
I just realized that Poe’s musical theme plays exactly 3 times during TFA, and each time that it does so, he’s with Finn.
1. As Finn blows up the turbolaser cannons on the Finalizer and they celebrate his shot. 2. As Poe swoops in over the ruins of Maz’s castle, shooting up the TIEs that nearly had Finn. 3. As Poe sees the Millennium Falcon lifting off from Starkiller Base,and knows that Finn has made it out.
In each scene Poe is rooting for Finn and actively protecting him. The third scenario strikes me the most. In the novelization, we discover that Poe deliberately disobeys a direct order from General Leia (his idol, someone he has “limitless respect” for) to retreat to safety, instead choosing to risk his life to stay behind and search for Finn. What would’ve happened if he hadn’t seen the Falcon at that moment? Less than ten seconds after that shot, Starkiller Base turns into a sun. Would he have searched till the bitter end?
