    What Classic Trilogy characters were around during the prequel era?

    I've been thinking lately about how many Classic Trilogy characters show up in the Prequel era--and I don't mean the obvious ones like Obi-Wan, Palpatine, and C-3PO. Here's the ones I can think of off the top of my head--any others?

    Sate Pestage
    Palpatine's future dignitary (and brief successor) makes an appearance in Cloak of Deception as his aid.

    Wilhuff Tarkin
    Appears in Cloak of Deception as the Governor of Eriadu and in Rogue Planet as a Republic General.

    Greedo (???)
    In one of the most famous cut scenes, a brash young Rodian is called Greedo. It contradicts EU and is just a bad idea all around. If Greedo were as dumb as he is in Mos Eisley, he wouldn't have lived long enough to get there. I guess Lucas realized that and made a wise decision to cut it. Still, he's included for completeness.

    Wuher
    Appears briefly in the Aurra Sing comic. A kid in Mos Espa who's terrified by her appearance and tactics is asked his name, which turns out to be Wuher. The age and general appearance are right.

    Tessek (???)
    A Senator Tessek is mentioned in Cloak of Deception. I think it's either a typo for Senator Tikkes or Tessek is a common Quarren name. I can't imagine an Old Republic Senator retiring, becoming an accountant, and getting mixed up with Jabba.

    Bib Fortuna
    Jabba's majordomo way back when. I don't like this one, and the contradiction of EU is the least of my reasons. First, he looks different--way different. Second, he seems young in ROTJ, and this would put him in his 60s. A bit too old for the character as he appeared, I think.

    Ephant Mon
    Appears in Prelude to Rebellion.

    Djas Puhr
    Apparently appears as a slaver working for Sebulba in Scholastic's Episode One Adventures. I haven't read this, as it requires an expensive subscription.

    C-3PX (EU)
    Appears in the same series as Djas Puhr--and is built by Darth Maul!

    Princess Leia's Bikini
    Worn by Diva Shaliqua.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Red face "Sing! Au-aurra Sing!"

    Sometimes listing "obvious ones" can help, too Chuxter.

    Obi-Wan
    Palpatine
    R2-D2
    C-3PO
    Yoda
    Mon Mothma (if EU stories are true)
    Chewbacca (he's 200 after all)
    Anakin/Vader
    Jabba
    Teek

    I'm loathe to say this, but Han Solo would be a little kid like 8 or 9, but he could be around in the Ep 2-3 era. But maaaaaaaaaaan do I hope not!

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Chewbacca should be at least 150 around Ep1 timeframe, but he'd be happily swinging around on treetops and wouldn't have much use for exploring.

Lewis

    this ins't really a character but what about midi-chlorians. If they were around during episodes 1-3 then they would've had to have been around during episodes 4-6. I say midi-clorians 'cause they are miroscopic life forms that live within living cells.

    Well, we don't really know that Qui-Gon was right about this, they're not really characters (just a cheap plot device IMO ) and there's no mention of them in the CT.

    Indeed, Qui-Gon is the only person we know of for certain who believes this. Sure, Obi-Wan acknowledges their existence, but they could be nothing more than neutral scientific data. Maybe Yoda's concentration is tied to his species, and not to Force ability.

    I know, I know, wishful thinking!

    Arrow

    According to Mr. Sansweet, Han Solo will not be in E2. Notice I said "Episode II," not, ahem, the other name.

    Thumbs up

    I don't think anyone mentioned Tarkin, he should be around. I would also assume that the Rancor would be around.
