The Rays have some interesting characters, some of which could work as comparable to the new and old Star Wars blockbusters

Everyone wants to be Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, or if you’ve got a dark side, Darth Vader. But you can’t have 10 Han Solos, 10 Skywalkers, and 10 Vaders. With this in mind, and a light hearted approach to having some fun before the holidays, we profile the Rays roster as Star Wars characters. Hopefully you’ll see the resemblance, and if not, at least we tried!

There are some that are easier to profile than others, but we’ll work mostly using general spirit and/or attitude to make this work. Here we go!
