I can just officially announce that I’m excited by the turnout for this project and may even make it an annual thing! I just wish I had a better voting mechanism for you all and I apologize for its shortcomings.
In celebration of TrEU, I offer you — MARCH MADNESS, ROUND II.
I was surprised by some of the results of round 1 and not surprised at all by others. Pellaeon is the only character with a 100% sweep, receiving a vote from every single person who voted and leaving Kueller with zero. In retrospect, probably pitting one of the most beloved EU characters against one of the least known villains was probably a mistake if I wanted fairness. But in the words of the Admiral himself, if you want fairness, go organize a football game and don’t look for it in battles. (I’d quote that exactly if I had my copy of Specter of the Past. It’s on page 1 or page 2. Look it up for yourself, you lazy.)
I was personally disappointed that Sariss did not whip Erisi’s traitorous behind (as she would so roundly do in real life), and also personally surprised at which contests were extremely close. Zsinj and C’Boath, and Barris Offee and Galen Malek were near ties. Better luck to the barely-scrapers in the next round! So! Out of the original 64 characters (divided up equally between men and women, half villain and half hero), who survived? Who will make it to round III? It’s up to you! Now your task is to pick
Your task is to pick the 16 characters worthy of making it to round 3! You can decide either who would win in a fight, who would beat the other in combat, or simply who you like better. Tell me who wins!

(Keeping in mind that I do not include any characters from NJO/Legacy eras or The Clone Wars series because these things aren’t canon in my universe and my website is my universe. If you have a problem with that, maybe think about being a little more open minded. I don’t mind if you put your canon on your website, after all.)
Once again, you have four days to put in your votes — March 12, I will announce the winners of Round II! To find out more about your fighting characters, keep reading after the bracket — I’ve provided the list for your convenience with Wookieepedia links.
