When i play MMO's i always make my other characters somehow related to each other gives it a more personal feel for me and gives my characters a lot more back story as to what they might be fighting for or even against. the update Legacy will allow players to do that and more:
- After you at least complete the story based Mission 0 of sorts storyline your most likely second made character will be able to pick the family or in this case legacy last name so other players can identify and see how many people picked Vader, Skywalker, and Solo.
- Once you unlock enough Legacy Points you can then choose relation to a previously made character: Brother and sister (Make sure you don't kiss not knowing your related OK?) Parents or even Husband or wife depending on character gender.
