On the other hand, sometimes the character lends itself well to multiple variants or instances. The Clone Troopers are a good example of that. It makes sense there would be many different varieties, different flavors, of Clone Trooper but that many of them would be similar. I first observed this when I was building the character for what was originally "Clone Trooper" that would later become Hevy. While researching what notable Clones used a Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon, I found both Hevy and Jek.

Truthfully, given the Essentials Ranger's single reliance on Dexterity for most of its attacks and abilities, the Human seems a more optimal choice than anything. The single stat bonus is all the Ranger needs and the bonus Human feat and defenses allows for greater customization and/or improvement of the base class.
Either way, this provides an alternative character for my upcoming Star Wars D&D adventure that I'll be throwing up here sometime in the near future.
