I had a great time reading through peoples character back stories and such, I have no idea where to begin coming up with a Jedi name and back story I was hoping for some advice on how you guys did it and what I should take into account when I'm doing my back story?
Thanks for your time
I found the best way to write a back story is start with the basics:
Species, gender, skin colour, hair colour, year of birth, planet of birth (for help with planets check out starwars.wikia)
From there you can move onto the next important things: Jedi or Sith. If A Jedi, then come up with a name (there are star wars name generators you can google if you're struggling). If you are a Sith, come up with a real name and then a Darth name.
After that, you can start fleshing out the rest of the back story; does your character have any siblings, what happened to their parents or was he/she an orphan? How did they discover they were force sensitive? Who trained them? If they're a Sith how did they fall to the darkside?
Eventually you may find that while you are figuring all this out that your creative mind kicks in and new ideas flow.
I did all of the above and ended up with this backstory http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=27744.0
Hope that helps
