Mandaboo (General Aspect)

At one point in time, Appius Wight believed the Mandalorian code to be more a rough guide than a set of strict rules to follow. This is no longer the case.

Now, he follows the tenants of the Resol'nare vigilantly, as he understands it as the way of life from which he came. He wears the armor, speaks the language, contributes to his aliit's welfare, answers the call of the Manda'lor when required. He swears to protect himself, as well as raise his children as Mandalorians now that he is a father, and above all else, protect his family.

Unfortunately, this dedication to his family and his code of honour can lead to him being manipulated by those that can take advantage of it.

Dar'jetii Mando'ade (General Aspect)

Appius Wight is two things; a Mandalorian, and a Force user.

Many have often criticized him for this. Some claim hypocrisy, some claim simple stupidity, whilst some think he's just naive. Either way, it usually ends up resulting in others urging Appius to pick a side. Force User or Mandalorian.

Yet, he won't. Being a Mandalorian Force User is something Appius wears like a badge of honour. It's a big part of who he is, and if anyone else doesn't like it? Then to him, that's that's their problem. Not his.

Naturally, this leads to Appius being judgemental to those who criticize him for being nothing more than circumstances out of his control.

Hello There (Personality Aspect)

Appius "Zappius" Wight goes by his day to day life based on what his heart tells him to do, wearing it on his sleeves and never hiding his emotions. He rarely ever plans ahead, and often says the first thing that comes to his mind. Sometimes he can be calm, at other times angry. Though he's often caught with a smile on his face, a joke, and a handful of wit in his words for those with an ear to listen.

However, at the same time Appius is a reserved and introverted individual. Tragedy has struck this Mandalorian on more than one occasion. The loss of his family and the sting of betrayal are wounds that are hard to heal. As a result, he has a hard time trusting those he meets until he gets to know them better.

Ner Cyare (Personality Aspect)

The destruction of his aliit sent Appius into a downward spiral that resulted in his turn to the Dark Side. He abandoned his beskar'gam, and believed he was destined to be alone in a galaxy that conspired against him.

That all changed when he met Ankira Irr. She became the first ray of light he had experienced in a long time. He became inspired by her kindness and her tenacity, she helped him rediscover who he was and he came to admire and love her, calling her ner cyare.

Shades of the old Appius come to the surface when he's around her. The same kind, gentle being he was before the destruction of his aliit. Though the Dark Sides influence can play with his mind, and after long periods of time apart he retreats back into his shell, aware of it or not...

The Trickster's Form (Combat Aspect)

Appius Wight is a firm believer that Niman is as legitimate a lightsaber form as any other. He has studied Form VI for over two decades, and as a result has become extremely proficient at incorporating Force based powers into combat.

These include, but are not limited too, Telekinesis to push and pull opponents. Force Lightning to Zap and kill enemies. Even using Amplification to increase his speed, strength, and stamina is not out of the realms of possibility for him.

Through Dun Moch Appius picks apart his opponents fighting style, belittling them to exploit their weaknesses using his varied training and knowledge of lightsaber forms to do so. However, as impressive as all this is, it's not without its flaws. Niman is a jack of all trades fighting style and Appius can struggle against opponent's that are simply better with the blade than he is.

Legacy Of Tarre Vizsla (Combat Aspect)

As a result of being a Mandalorian Force User, Appius Wight from a very young age was inspired by the stories of Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian to be inducted into the Jedi Order. From this, Appius has been inspired to follow Tarre Vizsla's example and combine his Mandalorian heritage with his powers in the Force. Including keeping and using a jetpack, lightsabers and Mandalorian armor to create a very unique style of offence in combination with his Force prowess in order to his opponents weakness and exploit their biggest flaws to the best of his ability.

However, this fighting style can be difficult to use when physically restricted by an opponent, the environment or if his equipment is destroyed.
