Just curious, but what do you guyes think about making a page devoted to Force Sensative Families, like the Skywalkers, Koons, Sunriders, Ketos, and possiably any others we can think of that would fit here? Just a thought. AzureAngel 04:52, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Are you talking about pages such as the Skywalker family, or something more related to Force-sensitivity? —Xwing328(Talk) 04:55, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
    • No i was just wondering if we should have a page that lists all of the Force-sensative families. Because i know there are actualy quite a few, i was looking for that info for my FanFic and it took me quite a while to track down a bunch of them. I just think it would be helpful for there to be a page with a list of them somewhere. I dunno, i dont need it anymore, i just thought it might help other people.

      • A "List of Force-sensitive bloodlines" or somesuch seems like quite a reasonable proposition. jSarek 05:49, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
        • Would be interesting to write up, seeing as how the Jedi had that thing against procreating (although they did make exceptions for the Cereans, and the Corellians).Tocneppil 09:26, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
          • A Force-sensitive family line could be continued by its non-Jedi members; few families were all-Jedi. Anyway, such an article seems like a good idea to me, even if I'm just a fairly new user. Evir Daal 10:20, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
            • I say we do it, it would prove very useful. Im not good at creating pages, but i would be happy to help edit adn add to it.AzureAngel 03:22, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
              • What would we call it, "Force-sensitive Bloodlines" seems like a mouthful. How about "Force Dynasties"?Tocneppil 20:25, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
                • I think "Force Dynasties" has some weird implications to it. "Force-sensitive bloodlines" seems like the best option to me. In fact… I created a category maybe an hour ago. I was going to say something about it here, but I had to run to a class. Anyway, the category is Category:Force-sensitive bloodlines. It's a subcat of Cat:Families and Cat:Force-sensitives. I didn't write a spiel yet; feel free to do that. I think there should probably be an article as well (Force-sensitive bloodlines). Rather than being a list, though, it would discuss the phenomenon. – Aidje talk 21:50, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
                  • "Force Dynasties" has wierd implications? You mean like the old Soap Opera from the '80s? (LOL)Tocneppil 21:58, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
                    • More like implications of right-to-rule (or lack thereof) that shouldn't apply to Force-sensitives. It's the same as if we had "Blue-eyed bloodlines" vs. "Blue-eyed dynasties" - the former implies to me lines of inheritance of an eye color, the latter implies to me a line of inheritance of *rulers* with that eye color. Anyway, I've started populating the category, and have come across an interesting question . . . how many Force-sensitives in a family does it take to suggest the whole line if Force-sensitive? The Skywalkers and Horns are easy, but does the Katarn family count with only two known Force-sensitives? Also, should the House of Solo count? There are a great many Force-sensitives, but they all get their sensitivity from the Skywalker line. jSarek 22:18, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
                      • Good point JSarek. I think there was also some mention by Plo Koon about some Kel Dor familial tradition of blood-relatives as Jedi, which was why his neice appeared in Stark-Hyperspace War.Tocneppil 23:57, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
                      • There should be at least multiple (2) force-sensitives. 50% of the family would the the most one could practically expect with a force-sensitive marrying a non-force-sensitive. So somewhere in that range, I think. -Fnlayson 03:39, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
            • We should also mention the Sunrider/Boda line,Sunrider family, as well we might mention, Palpatine, Triclops, and Ken, and i am sure there are others, but i cant think of anymore at the moment. Also there very well may be another family with more than 50% force-sensatives, as the skywalker family only included three (shmi, padme, and han) and look how they all turned out.AzureAngel 04:07, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
          • Sounds like something the Dathomir witches' family clans would qualify for. Otherwise, the Solusar family, the Qel-Droma family, and the Ismaren family should probably be included. And perhaps Cronal's line (or whoever of the prophets it was who was Sariss' father). I'm sure there are others, but these are the ones I can think of right now. Also, a question: should the khommite Dorsk line count? It had only two or three sensitives, but, due to mutation, all its future descendants should now be Force-sensitive. Evir Daal 08:00, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
            • Wasn't the Dorsk line clones? And weren't they discontinued (for lack of a better term) by the authorities of his home planet after he broke tradition to join the Jedi?Tocneppil 08:21, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
              • Yeah, they were clones. Doesn't that count for a bloodline? It worked like a family on Khomm, but I guess you could have different views on that. Anyway, there were at least two other Dorsks after Dorsk 81, the first to become a Jedi, but I don't know what happened to the line after that. Evir Daal 08:32, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
                • I guess I'm not so much looking at clones as being 'Father' and 'Son' as variations of the same guy, with Dorsk 82 opting to become a Jedi instead of staying a regular joe. Arthur C. Clarke addressed this in Imperial Earth, and there was something similar in the Michael Keaton movie Multiplicity (although a stronger comparison, albeit without clones, would be Groundhog Day).Tocneppil 23:29, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
                  • The khommite clones themselves referred to different generations, and there were individuals from the same template with different personalities (compare Dorsk 80 to Dorsk 82, for example). But on the other hand, it was also clearly stated that their society was a static one, where clone lines kept their professions and views practically forever, so this might be a rare exception. However, I do think they lived in family-like units. But perhaps you were referring to genetic similarities, in which case you're right. Evir Daal 07:53, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
                    • I was only referring to genetic similarities, personality is more of a learned trait than one that is directly inherited. Your mention of exceptions reminds me, however, that perhaps a write-up on the subject of bloodlines would be a good idea. That way we can have explanations into why the Corellians seem to flaunt themselves in front of the Jedi belief in non-propagation (as opposed to the Cereans who were allowed to raise families because of low male-to-female ratios in their species) and other cases.Tocneppil 09:57, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
                      • I think they explained that by saying that Corellian Jedi were a dissident sect or something like, much like they explained away Callista's background. Anyway, sounds like a good idea to me. Evir Daal 07:42, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
