Somewhere during the past week, my boredom with Star Wars: the Old Republic waned a bit and I started feeling the force again. This time, it pulled me towards one of my favourite occupations when new (group) content output is low: playing warzones with friends.
My friend Marinka was having a hard time playing scoundrel DPS, so I decided to roll one myself for the baby PvP bracket. What better way to torture the enemy than hunting them down with two giggling scoundrel girls? I still had a female body type 4 character on my wishlist (never made one*), as well as someone to wear Calo Nord's jacket, which I bought ages ago. I always thought the jacket makes you look a bit fat from the back, so I decided to embrace the look rather than be bothered by it. I also made her look really cute, and guess what, I adore this character! I don't know why I waited with making a body type 4 character for this long. So today I present to you: Ravinne, my cute, naive and slightly silly curvy scoundrel.
Unfortunately, she isn't wearing the right gloves and leggings on the good-looking pictures, because I didn't have enough basic commendations yet to buy them. You'll have to do with the crappy preview window ones if you want to see what they look like, sorry!
On the top right picture, Ravinne isn't using Flashy. Seems they use a default blaster for everyone in that shot - lazy devs.

Flashy (blaster pistol from the smuggler storyline)
The cool thing is that you can wear this outfit on starters because there's no level requirement.
Calo Nord's Jacket is a random drop from the Archon's Contraband pack and Galactic Legends Armor Pack, so you'll probably have to stalk the GTN if you want to get your hands on this. It's going for 950k credits at the moment, which could be worse. I think I bought it for about 800k several months ago. There's also a brown version called Outlander Observer's Jacket.
The Trainee's Gauntlets and Scout's Leggings can be bartered for basic commendations (20 or so each) in the Supply section of the fleet. The Trainee's Gauntlets are black by default; the Scout's Leggings brown (which also looks good with the jacket), but they change into black when unifying colours.
I'm still looking for the perfect belt (preferably a leather one) and boots. Perhaps I'll just go with the rest of Calo Nord's set, since it looks pretty slick. Other suggestions are welcome.
Do you have a preference for a certain body type for your characters? Or are they pretty mixed?
* Even though I'd like to play characters as varied as possible in an ideal world, I've found that I enjoy playing characters I identify well with most. Male characters, very short characters or characters with a different build simply don't get logged in, so I've given up on creating them. When it comes to Star Wars: the Old Republic, this has resulted in an over-representation of characters with body type 1 (anorexic) and 2 (normal) at the expense of 3 (athletic giant) and 4 (curvy).
