The Grand Inquisitor is a Pau'an whose species we first saw in Episode 3 and they actually do have the red facial marks, just not as pronounced as in the cartoons, so the Son is the ripoff to be honest.  Roll Eyes

the twist to that is clone wars took place between 2 and 3 and ended just before 3 was released....so wouldn't that be the other way around?

Regardless of species, Son looks like a generic human DS wielder (which he was). The grey skin has been characterized as an outward show of the ravages of the dark side.

Something to keep in mind.

The Son was created, look as well, by George Lucas himself.  Same as the Pau'an species.  So, it was Lucas who seems to have a love of red facial markings.   

"Filoni and lead character designer Kilian Plunkett created a character with an unintentional resemblance to the Son, the Pau'an villain known as the Grand Inquisitor. Filoni believed that the close resemblance made sense, as the Son's arc in The Clone Wars was metaphorically intended to represent both the past and the future within the Star Wars lore."  From Wookipedia

So it looks like I'll be driving an Audi for a while. I'm working on swapping an 05 Forester that doesn't run for a 97 A4 2.8 Quattro wagon 5-spd that does run. My buddy wants to see if he can save it, if not use it as a parts donor for a Subaru he has.

Just finished one of the new canon books Heir to the Jedi and it was genuinely awful, certainly the least of all Star Wars novels I've ever touched. I would have thought that a first-person point of view story with Luke would have been somewhat interesting to say the least... not one bit. It's like the author didn't know the universe or the characters at all.

On a quirky side note, since it takes place between Episodes 4 and 5 it did include some of Luke's Jedi journey and indirectly if any comparisons are drawn there is no doubt that Rey from the new trilogy is the most powerful being in all of Star Wars past and present... oh well  Undecided

This came as a surprise? Just look what they did with Han in TFA. Badass smuggler turns into a whiny bitch and runs away because his kid turned murderous emo. In the original canon, he and the rest of the family actively fight him and his New Order.

Actually I liked that. If you look at the OT it was all but outright said that him staying was out of character. This was basically the first time he didn't run, and had spent most of his time before that running(albeit out of a desire for self preservation), usually from Jabba and his bounty hunters, imperials, and some others he wronged in the past.

He technically ran in A New Hope, then changed his mind and came back. He was trying to run again at the beginning of Empire, because he happened to run into a bounty hunter. I still strongly suspect he was never going back to the Rebellion at any point in that movie, despite the fact that he had Leia. I think he was running, never planned on Leia being with them, but was just going to bring her along cause they were falling for each other. He was foiled by both Vader and Fett, or he'd have been gone.

At the beginning of Jedi, he was in ZERO condition to make a run for it, and needed medical attention anyway. Now he's back at the Rebellion, more out of necessity than actual desire, and I strongly suspect that his "volunteering" to lead the Endor strike team was at least a bit coerced. Possibly by Leia, her surprised look being more "oh wow that actually worked and I convinced you" than genuine surprise at the idea of him volunteering. Even if he was doing it without being coerced, that look says a lot. It basically means "this is NOT the Han I know," which is the surprise on Lando's part.

I suspect he stuck around primarily to be with the woman he loved after that, then later their son. After Ben went Kylo, driving a wedge between he and his family, he no longer had either of those. Luke was off moping the Force only knew where, meaning the only other thing that maybe had potential to keep him around, his best remaining friend besides Chewy, was gone. Han had little reason to stay, and returned to what he does best, running.

Though I do agree, I he probably could have been slightly less emo about it, it was also somewhat justified, considering what he went through.

Not so much of a surprise, but with the whole "Is Rey a Mary Sue?" debate that raged back when 7 hit theatres (and certainly continues on to this day) it was unusual for me at least to find hard evidence beyond endless fan opinions that Rey "breaks the mythos" as it were. And even still, that the proof would come from a Canon source released around the same time as Episode 7. Somewhat satisfying though, I'm no lover of the new trilogy...
