Hi there! I'm quite new on Star Wars, and I was looking to expand my knowledge on the lore by reading the books. Problem is I can't find any good ones to start off reading, with the many there are. I decided to reach out to anyone with any recommendations on what I should read, anything's appreciated. Thanks.

"... But you know, he's usually very serious with his work...hah... close to the fact that you might say he's just a work-a-loic. That was my first impression, but my overall thoughts are a meh to him- you know? He shows up to birthday party's and gatherings and stuff like that, though you could say he gets pretty tense- like there might be a murder or a Variant attack at any second."
*Informant has shown that they have not befriended Surles, but it shows how most of his peers may see him as.
"...Oh Jermey huh? He's a great police-man, and in the few times we hang, he talks mostly about the things he did. It's nice to see the guy finally do what he wanted to do. Since he was in Middle School, he always wanted to be a kind of Superhero guy- like in those nice picture-story things. Maybe he got powers, wha-dah-know? I haven't seen him in aggggeeesss. Hav-have I ever told you how sus' it is for ya' to know that you know that I know Jeremy? No? Yeah- yeah, I'll get back to him. He was always into Variant attacks and how ya' caught 'em. Those were the days. Oh! Yeah, the interview, yeah-yeah. Well I think he's a great person guy, very ambitious fella. Did I ever tell ya about the time about when his Pops found out about the..."

Family | -Joseph Surles (Father): Deceased -Mary Surles (Mother): Incarcerated -Joseph Surles Jr. ( Brother): Alive - Elisabeth Surles (Sister): Alive Background | N.O.V.A has received, and recorded the following information:
Jeremiah Surles was born on July 13th in a suburban town of [REDACTED]. Blood type: AB-, Birth Weight: 5.3 pounds, and circumcised. Joseph Surles was the patriarch of the family, as Mary Surles stayed at home to raise the future 3 children. Joseph worked as an animator working for a popular children's Cartoon show:The Misadventures of Squid-man. It was said that Jeremiah was harassed at school for his father working as the head animator for the show ( SEE: Extended Interview with Howard [REDACTED]). Jeremiah was the eldest in his family and one of the only other workers of the household- taking up the job in a local market.
His source of the grappling sport has been suspected to be started when on: July 11th, when surveillance footage shows he was beaten to near death from his peers. It was shown that Jeremiah curled up into a ball and seemed helpless. His peer's were then sentenced to juvenile hall and Jeremiah was hospitalized. From his therapist's accounts, he seemed to have a mental strain after the incident, and was scarred. It was then that Mary had enrolled Jeremiah in a local wrestling club.
Life seemed to be normal for Jeremiah, his life as mundane as any average person would go through. He passed high with IB and AP classes, getting a scholarship at New Haven's Mid-Town University. He was enrolled in Criminal Justice and passed. It was after he got his bachelor's degree that he enrolled into the police academy.
He had served for years and was infamous of many Variant captures. His greatest feature was capturing [DATA EXPUNGED].
As of now, he specializes in variant-related cases, from homicides to rape. Suspicion on Jeremiah's skills have made some N.O.V.A agents believe that Jeremiah himself is a variant. From current testing, this was proved false.
1.Aged cast. Most of the small town-esch roleplays I've been in have been with a the young/ teen cast, I'd like to freshen up from it and actually have an adult in the mix.
2. I'd rather like the One Experience thing, I completely agree with Karnee's statement that it'll establish relationships from the start and I'd like to see how the different characters have their portrayal and understanding of what just happened.
This may only be me, but I do have some helpful advice from my experience on lurking on this site. You should have actual plot to this thread, or some kind of hook. The people like shiny and cool pictures, perhaps give them a nice drawing or picture of a barren wasteland, overall just be very appealing here, that's what get's the number's rolling. Even if you don't want to put in a whole essay for what I'm assuming is a joke RP, you should add it on the Free Roleplay section on this site, and it really fits in with your quite short description on this roleplay. Other interest treads are a bit longer and in my opinion are a bit more serious. This is all just friendly advice though, you do what you want.
