Now here are some interesting matchups. With about double the votes from Round 1, the fight for top character has really taken some interesting turns. I’ve decided that next year, I’ll have the top half be Force-users and the bottom half be non-users, and maybe try to play up the “who would win in combat” side. As it is, we’re solidly running on popularity right now, and it’s not a bad thing.

No clean sweeps here! Still, the top 8 did for the most part all command an impressive lead over their opponents. Here’s what we’re down to . . .
- Kyle Katarn vs. Tycho Celchu — two former students and soldiers for the Empire who graduated into the service of the Rebel Alliance. Katarn also has training as a Jedi Knight, while Tycho Celchu’s reputation as a crack fighter ace means these two won’t be evenly matched in the sky or with a saber.
- Mara Jade vs. Jaina Solo — specially trained Force sensitive private assassin to the Emperor vs. . . . erm, a 14-year-old girl. You know what, you’ve been voting for Jaina for your own reasons; I’ve established I don’t NJO/Legacy, so just you keep doing your thing.
- Darth Bane vs. Thrawn — one of the most boring popular Sith lords against arguably the EU’s most popular, most recognized, and most genius characters.
- Pellaeon vs. Darth Zannah — the coolest badass in all the galaxy vs. somebody . . . I don’t know who she is. Maybe this was more successful without my trying to comment on the fights.
Well, there you have it! The top 8 contenders for title of Favorite TrEU Character. Put in your votes here or on the Facebook page, let me know some way or another! The final four will face off Friday! Woo hoo!
