The undercover operative known by the codename "Chuckles" has always been pretending to be someone else in one form or another over the course of his life. As a child, Chuckles began acting on a well-known childrens' holovid which launched him into a stellar career as an actor that thrived until the beginning of the Galactic Civil War. While playing the part of a young, ambitious Senator Palpatine, in a live performance of a dramatization of his rise to power, Chuckles decided to do an impromptu song and dance number called "Senator Palpy Loves The Teens" in which he mock-seduced the attractive actresses playing Palpatine's young aids. Chuckles' wife, Melinda, who was the writer and executive producer of the program, was not at all amused by her husband's public acting out as she feared if would bring too much attention to their acting troupe's secondary performances smuggling messages to Rebel cells while on tour. The official outrage expressed by the Emperor's public relations officer was no match for the wild, hysterical response from the population at large, earning Chuckles and his acting company the ire of the Empire but the love of a public growing weary of Palpatine's New Order.
Later, during a rehersal for a stage play about the "heroic" Imperial Military and their valiant struggle against the "insidious Rebel terrorists", Chuckles' acting troupe recieved a surprise in the form of a raid by actual Imperial military forces. Melinda was taken away for "questioning", and was never seen again. Angered and despondant over the loss of the woman he loved, Chuckles disappeared from his very public life and joined the Rebel Alliance.
Chuckles has always been a natural chameleon, able to switch effortlessly from one role to the next, a skill that he puts to good use as an agent for the New Republic Intelligence Core. Chuckles can adapt to any accent, speech pattern, or dialect perfectly enabling him to appear to be a native of almost any planet in the galaxy. Though a man of short stature, Chuckles can act "larger than life" making most individuals mistakenly remember him as a larger, more imposing man. Adept at many forms of stage and holodrama make-ups, as well as utilizing masks made from medical synthflesh, Chuckles can flawlessly alter his appearance to suit any role required of him.
Chuckles carries all of the masks/makeup/uniforms/false documents/etc. for his missions in a multiple code-locked suitcase lined with micro-thermal detonators. If anyone other than Chuckles attempts to open the case, the resulting explosion will not only disentegrate the contents of the case, but the case itself, the person attempting to open it, and most of the room said attempting opener was occupying at the time.
Despite his hardships since the beginning of the war, Chuckles still keeps his quirky sense of humor and knack for spontaneity:
When asked to perform in a live, command performance for the New Republic High Command of a dramatization of the events surrounding the rescue of then-Princess (now Supreme Chancellor) Leia Organa (now Organa-Solo) from the first Deathstar, Chuckles again proved to be completely unpredictable. While in the role of then wide-eyed farmboy (now well-respected Jedi Master) Luke Skywalker, apon first seeing the holo of the attractive young actress playing Leia being projected by the prop astromech droid, began belting out a power balad of his own design called "Hot For Sister!" (the chorus of which begins: "So what if we have the same parents, I'm from a farm afterall"), which resulted in a very red-faced Supreme Chancellor Organa-Solo, a calm-yet secretly embearrased stare from Master Skywalker, and some very uncomfortable looks from the rest of the assembled New Republic leaders (expept, that is, for Organa-Solo's husband, who could not stop laughing until there were tears streaming down his face
Afterwards, when asked why he did it, Chuckles reply was:
"Why, just for laughs of course."
head- Clone Wars Jedi Army Human Jedi (modded)
torso,arms- Commtech Han Solo
lower body- POTJ Lando Calrissian
hands- POTJ Obiwan Kenobi Cold Weather Adventure
shoulder holster,pistol- Saga/OTC General Lando Calrissian
blaster carbine- custom
suitcase- Salvo v1
As you can see, this is as close to a literal interpretation fo the original "G.I.Joe" Chuckles v1 action figure as is possible with Star Wars parts. The only major differences are the lack of a knife on his right hip (I didn't feel he needed it), the lack of a tropical print on his shirt (there is no known reference of this type of pattern anywhere in Star Wars lore so I left it off the finished figure), and the length of the sleeves (for aesthetic reasons,longer sleeves just look better for this type of character).
I felt that Chuckles was always underarmed carrying just the pistol, so I decided to amp up his firepower a bit. I fugured that a blaster carbine-sized weapon would give Chuckles the extra firepower he needs while not being rediculously overarmed. The carbine is a custom made from some G.I.Joe rifle (Blackout?) I got in a trade last year and a piece trimmed from a POTF2 Stormtrooper rifle.
