Star Wars characters's dimensions (except purposes):
Luke - Protagonist (Pursue, Consider)
Empire - Antagonist (Prevent, Reconsideration)
Obi Wan - Guardian (Help, Conscience)
Dath - Contagonist (Hinder, Temptation)
RD2D2, C3PO - Sidekick (Supporrt, Faith)
Han - Skeptic (Oppose, Disbelief)
Chewbacca - Emotion (Uncontrolled, Feeling)
Leia - Reason (Controlled, Logic)
Luke - Passive (Inaction, Accepts)
Empire - Assertive (Proaction, Evaluates)
Obi Wan - Responsive (Reacts, Re-evaluates)
Dath - Peservative (Protection, Non-Acceptance)
RD2D2, - Risky (Possibilities, Production)
C3PO - Cautious (Probabilities, Reduction)
Han - Dogmatic (Actualities, Deduction)
Leia - Pragmatic (Potentialities, Induction)
"Certainly Obi Wan seems RESPONSIVE. He never attacks, just responds to attacks , such as the Cantina scene where he cuts off the creature’s arm after it had attacked Luke. But here the direct relationship breaks down. This time Obi is not balanced by Darth, but by the Empire which is the key ASSERTIVE Character in the story. This is exemplified in the Empire’s unprovoked attack on Leia’s home world of Alderan, and their efforts to track down and destroy the rebel base. Darth takes on a PRESERVATIVE approach, which works nicely with his charge to recover the stolen plans. Every step he takes is an attempt to get back to start. Even when he leads his fighters into the trench on the Death Star, he cautions his henchmen not to chase those who break off from the attack, but to stay on the leader.
Rounding out the Four Simple Action Methodologies, Luke fills the role of PASSIVE. Luke, Passive? Yep. When Uncle Owen tells Luke that he must stay on one more season, Luke argues, but does he accept it? When Obi tells Luke that he must go with him to Alderan, where does he end up? When the Cantina Bartender tells him the droids must stay outside, does he even argue?
Looking at the Decision Quad, Han reads very well as the DOGMATIC approach, which matches nicely with his role as Skeptic. Leia, on the other hand is clearly Pragmatic, adapting to new and unexpected situations as needed. Note the way Dogmatic Han screws up the rescue attempt in the detention block with his inability to adapt, compared to Leia blasting a hole in the corridor wall, manufacturing an escape route.
Interestingly, the joint Sidekick of R2D2 and C3PO is split by the Methodologies of RISKY and CAUTIOUS. R2D2 is always the one jumping into the fray, going out on a limb, trailblazing through blaster fire. In Contrast, C3PO doesn’t want to go into the escape pod, doesn’t want to go on R2′s “mission” to find Obi, and excels at hiding from battle whenever he gets the chance."
Luke - INFORMATION (Proven, Test)
Empire - CALCULATION (Expectation, Theories)
Obi Wan - GUESSWORK (Unproven, Trust)
Dath - INTUITION (Determination, Hunch)
RD2D2, - Impact (Effects, Accurate)
Chewbacca - MEANS (Process, Unending)
Han - OUTCOME (Results,Ending)
Leia - INTENT (Cause, Non-accurate)
"Again, we can see subtle conflicts in techniques of Evaluation between Characters that are compatible at other levels. For the first time, we can see the tension that as an audience we feel between Darth and the Empire in the “Board Room” scene on the Death Star where Darth constricts the breathing of the general he is “bickering” with. The general says to Darth, “…your sorcerer ways have not helped you conjure up the missing plans…”, essentially arguing against Intuition.
Looking at Luke, we note that in his dinner table discussion with Uncle Owen he argues his point that he should be allowed to leave with Information: the new droids are working out, all his friends are at the academy, etc. Another example is the moment Luke bursts into Leia’s cell to release her. Rather than use any other technique, he describes the situation to her simply by imparting information: “I’m Luke Skywalker. I’m here to rescue you. I’m here with Ben Kenobi.”
Obi Wan, on the other hand, relies on Guesswork when the Millennium Falcon is chasing the lone imperial fighter after coming out of hyperspace. He sees the supposed moon, and guesses, “It’s a space station!”
Han is completely Outcome oriented, “I’m just in this for the reward, sister!”, and is thereby again in conflict with Leia as Intent: “If money is all you care about, then that’s what you’ll receive.”
Chewy can be seen to focus on Means, when he refuses to don the binders for Luke’s plan to rescue Leia.
C3PO is always evaluating impact: ” We’ll be sent to the spice mines of Kessel”, and, “I suggest a different strategy R2… Let the Wookie win.”
R2, as noted, does not represent a manner of evaluation. We can see by the feel of his Character that he is motivated and has a method, but he never evaluates anything for himself, you just point him and he goes.
Once again, since Star Wars is an action oriented story, the techniques of Evaluation were not as developed as Motivation and Method."
