    Default Holonetizens? In my campaign? It's more likely than you think!

    In my son's solo Edge of the Empire campaign, I've started including NPCs with names used by members of the Holonet. Although they might be not 100% similar to their namesakes, I've tried to make them as similar as I could. Sometimes the names are geographical names, as perhaps the places are named after their the characters, or the characters' parents.

    Darth Cassed - might be the parent of our own Darth Cassed.
    Korpil - similarly a Verpine tech and a tongue-tied engineer, but a tad different from Korpil's character.
    Kanner Ra'an - appears as a grizzled scout who provides information for the PC.
    Skolaris Cliff - named after Kayle Skolaris.

    Any other suggestions?

    What kind of dust?
    Dirt-laced dust. Probably originating from the ground.

    What's "coldskier0320"'s deal anyway, Mark? A droid or some sort?

    Don't fret too much, cold, neither do I.

    And "Grimace" too. Any particular in-universe visualization to the name?

    Nope, no connection to SW at all. 12 years ago, I had no idea how much time I'd be spending here, so I just used my then-current AOL instant messenger screen name.

    From that, I've learned my lesson, and I put a bit more thought into usernames.

    A crack Imperial pilot "Grim Ace". No sense of humor, and no-nonsense.

    I suggest a freighter captain... captain of a "Tramp" freighter... that ALWAYS YELLS EVERYTHING HE SAYS.

    And is ALWAYS RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE ELSE IS WRONG!

    Tramp Captain.

    I can use Grim Ace some time, and Coldskier0320 will now be a droid, maybe like Highsinger C-21. Maybe they meet at a Bocce Lounge at some point.

    Bocce is played there, by dapper gentlemen, in hats.

    (Actually I quite like "Grim Ace.")
