Durge Respect Thread

Respect the Gen'Dai Bounty Hunter

No Caption Provided

It's long overdue for this Bounty Hunter to get some respect, he is the Wolverine of Star Wars after all. He's also by far one of the most formidable foes the Jedi ever had to face given his ability to counter most of their techniques, experience facing them in combat and being nearly unkillable and unstoppable.

The following Respect Thread will be divided into several sections:

  • Strength
  • Speed
  • Durability
  • Physiology/Anatomy
  • Equipment
  • Marksmanship
  • Skill

Note that this is also best viewed in blog format. With that out of the way, let us begin:

Strength

Durge was an exceptional specimen physically, even in comparison to other Gen'Dai, at a young age:

The Gen'Dai that would become Durge was born two thousand years before the fall of the Republic, and was regarded by his elders as an exceptional physical specimen at a young age.

Gen'Dai Physiology/Anatomy

The Gen'Dai are a race of extreme endurance, long lifespans and phenomenal reflexes. On top of that, they lack most vital organs usual sentients have and are just a formless mass of nerves. This allows them to enter types of hybernation trances if they are injured too badly and can survive even dismemberment:

When completely encased in his battered high impact armor, Durge's true alien heritage was obscured. Though humanoid in appearance, Durge was a Gen'Dai, a rare species with an unusually long lifespan -- some Gen'Dai reportedly have lived for over four thousand years.

The peculiar nervous and circulatory systems of the Gen'Dai makes them extremely resistant to physical injury. The Gen'Dai physiology boasts millions of nerve clusters throughout the body, and a vascular system that distributes blood without the need of a central heart. Lacking the vulnerable vital organs of most humanoids, a Gen'Dai could sustain multiple lacerations and even, it is rumored, complete dismemberment and yet still survive. In addition to these extremes of endurance, the distributed neural network gives the Gen'Dai phenomenal reflexes. Should a Gen'Dai sustain too many injuries, they are capable of entering into extended periods of hibernation, during which they can heal wounds, recover from disease, and slow the aging process.

Star Wars Databank: Durge

Gen'Dai are nearly indestructible:

Though humanoid in appearance, Durge was a Gen'Dai, a rare, nearly indestructible species with an unusually long lifespan -- some Gen'Dai reportedly lived for 4000 years.

The Complete Star Wars Encylcopedia

Equipment

Here's a description of all the equipment Durge has:

In particular, Durge's armor is a major asset. It works in tandem with his neuro-network, can automatically track hostile fire and blast a target accurately merely by the wearer of the armor looking at said target:

Nothing could prepare Obi-Wan Kenobi for the horrors of Ohma-D'un and Queyta(i.e. facing Durge and Asajj Ventress):

Obi-Wan Kenobi had seen a great many things -- both awesome and terrible -- during his life as a Jedi, but nothing prepared him for the horrors he encountered on Ohma-D'un and Queyta.

The Official Star Wars Fact File #102

This is noteworthy because, even by this time, Obi-Wan Kenobi fought Darth Maul, one of the most skilled Sith in history.

Durge and Asajj Ventress are formidable adversaries of the Republic, and Durge killed many Jedi by himself:

In becoming Dooku's henchman, the bounty hunter was teamed up with Asajj Ventress. The two were formidable adversaries for the Republic, and Durge took lives of many Jedi with great zeal.

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia
