Many thanks for the kind words, Bren!

I do enjoy it and though time is scarce nowadays, I shall keep at it.
I'm always glad to hear that people dig the obscure characters!

Indeed. Telsij is a top shelf guy.

*Blushes and bows* Thank you kindly, Whill. The sentiment is very much likewise!

EDIT: Ahoy, all! I just wanted to let everyone know that my RL deadlines, workload and moving from one apartment to another, are all
consuming considerable time. And so, this is another (hopefully brief) hiatus for the Obscure Character Archive. It shall return however!

The "REAL" OBSCURE CHARACTER TUESDAY presents... "Fake Wedge" — aka
COL TAKBRIGHT from A New Hope and the 2017 short story "Duty Roster."

At long last, we finally have an in-universe canon name and separate identity for "Fake Wedge" (played by Colin Higgins
and long known to fans for playing the OG Wedge before being fired), courtesy of Jason Fry's short story "Duty Roster,"
appearing in From a Certain Point of View, the SW 40th anniversary short story anthology.

And in a nice bit of fan service that I don't mind one bit, the "Fake Wedge" nickname is even applied to the character in-universe.
Of course, as was standard practice in even the old EU, the character's name is a tuckerization of actor Colin Higgins —
though here there is also some cross-IP action, as his new canon name also references Higgins' character Tak from Blake 7.

Lastly, SPOILER ALERT: The bio/capsule text in this write-up directly quotes from and condenses Fry's story, ending and all.
And so, proceed at your own risk and hope you dig!

EDIT: I will have to take yet another (hopefully brief) hiatus here, as RL has proven to be quite hectic yet again! See you again in the near(ish) future!
