"The galaxy is silly," a character recently said in an RP session. Somewhere around this was a tangled conversation about Besalisks, Xexto, and ion-blaster toting Ortolans. It's true. Star Wars is silly. It's full of crazy aliens, wise-quipping spacers, and mad inventions. Full of little bits of fluff that have no real impact on the story, but add something special to the world.

Max Rebo (pictured above) is an excellent example. His band is the one playing in Jabba's Palace, and the whole thing was a mistake.  Sy Snootles (excellent name), the singer, made Rebo frontman to deflect any flak the band might get. Rebo then turned around and made a lifetime contract with Jabba the Hutt... for free food. The rest of the band weren't pleased. Oh hoh hoh hoh.

So what's your favourite bit of fluff? Nothing central to story, just bits of extraneous detail. It can be from books, films, TV shows, comics, or just something a fellow roleplayer has come up with.

From cantina bands to bands of adventuring dwarfs reminiscing about long forgotten gold... wait wrong movie. Anyway, there's singing in Star Wars. It can range from catchy pop tunes to chest pounding war chants to improvisational swamp jam sessions (bonus points to whoever gets that reference), but the songs and sounds we identify with can say a lot about who we are.

So for this Force Reflection: Does your character sing or play music? What's their favorite instrument, style, or genre? What do you think the music they sing, play, or listen to says about them?
