I would have gone an updated most of my toons, but I felt only Haar needed right now an update in his songs. He's been through a lot and he has evolved finally in the character he is now after a few months of great writting with the lovely @Aolani , So, I feel like doing this now!

Darth Haar/Ryshias Valeus - The Betrayer
Vocal: Judas - Fozzy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqURPBtGJzg

It's been a long time since I've found a spot on, perfectly fitting song that makes me go "Wow, this is totally Ryshias right now", but then Judas dropped by and I was instantly hooked. The fact that Chris Jericho sings it (Listen it in maaaaaaaan) is a mere detail when filled with the great guitars riffs, the awesome lyrics, and the powerful emotion he brings it. Perfect, just perfect for Haar, and instant 10/10

Instrumental: Dark Souls 3 OST - Soul of Cinder https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9dNrmGD7mU

Okay, this is a bit of an more personal trip and factly focusing for me, the man behind the character, than the Rysh character itself, but it goes for Rysh for a single fact: This theme is about one fighting oneself, Dark Souls 3 majestically made their last boss not be a horrible and disturbing-at-sigh (And disturbing in mechanics) boss, but is merely a reflection of yourself, two games earlier. The Soul of Cinder is your character from Dark Souls 1, is Gwyn, is you, and that's how Rysh reflects into every fight he's in. He doesn't fight Jedi Knights or Zakuul androids, He fights himself. Every fight he's in is a battle against his own limits and strategies, his mind has become so damaged that he's trying to avoid losing control and going all crazy. He is in war constantly and he knows his last opponent, will be again, ever and forever more, himself.

This song dictates Mei's relationship with her father, Hoban'ji (both after the Sacking of Coruscant and more recently after his death)

"Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again"
https://youtu.be/2bcXVJN1DoI

You were once my one companion
You were all that mattered
You were once a friend and father
Then my world was shattered

Wishing you were somehow here again
Wishing you were somehow near
Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed
Somehow you would be here

Wishing I could hear your voice again
Knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won't help me to do
All that you dreamed I could

Passing bells and sculpted angels
Cold and monumental
Seem for you the wrong companions
You were warm and gentle

Too many years fighting back tears
Why can't the past just die?

Wishing you were somehow here again
Knowing we must say goodbye
Try to forgive, teach me to live
Give me the strength to try

No more memories, no more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say goodbye
Sometimes I get creative: Story Collection || Artwork Collection

Updating songs is my duty!

Darth Haar/Ryshias Valeus - The Man among Monsters
Vocals: Dark Necessities - Red Hot Chilli Peppers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0oIoR9mLwc

Anthony Kiedis wrote about his demons on this song, and how he is more glad to be sober right now, accepting his dark parts as part of being human himself. Ryshias has reached finally reached that point, where his world view completely shifted from the old dark and grim world and has now come to accept his light, more merciful side than fully embrace his darkness. He knows his darkness will always follow him as long as he is Darth Haar, and he has come to accept it, but strive to be different from before, for his family and legacy.

Instrumental: I'M NOT BURIED YET - Adam Zero https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pJCSfJL5FI

This monster of instrumental song shows Haar in battle mood. His high tolerance to pain and endurance to overcome the odds makes him fight every single battle like it won't be his last, pulling all the stops to ensure his victory. Until his skin is scorched and torn, his flesh cut and torn apart, bones shattered and melted, he will continue to fight until he is finally...buried.

A Smuggler's Ballad

All Of This Could've Been Yours - Shooter Jennings and Heirophant
so I sailed and I sailed for so long
my hair grew long and my heart grew cold
I face certain death without you near


all of the ships who can't carry loads
you wrecked in anger, along distant shores

all of this would have been
all of this could have been yours

I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

After all... Captain Jaade has been a Highwayman from time to time.

Highwayman - The White Buffalo

And I flew a star ship
Across the universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll come back again, and again, and again
And again, and again, and again
I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Oh gosh, thanks for reminding me this thread existed, Hawking!




Hazaly Fey'dis Fjalldottir, Jedi Initiate
Snow Patrol - The Lightning Strike
Child of Light OST - Magna's Heart


Feyda Intyrie, Sith Apprentice
IAMX - Nature of Inviting

Ruelle was always going to make it into this post at least once. She is amazing. I highly recommend... everything, from her.

Darth Vaal
Covenant Prayers (Halo 5 OST) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-OdBvXAHnA
This is the sithiest thing i've ever heard tbh. Fits especially well for Malaji because of her quasi-religious habits inherited from her time as a Jedi.

Killer Queen feels like a perfect theme for my Outreach Bureau character, Vaki Adrati. She's supposed to win hearts and minds but tends to aim a bit lower. :P And it's kinda close to her singing style too!
