I've been following this challenge since it started. So many great customs. I thought it only right to contribute something myself. I make custom figures and playsets for my kids, and they often help with the design and stories. Here's our entry to the challenge:
The crew of the Sunfire, freelance smugglers who run weapons and supplies to private clients and members of the Resistance. Wanted by the First Order, this crew has to work hard to stay under the Order's radar.Aria Withers
Aria is the young captain of the Sunfire, a brave pilot with a knack for negotiation. She has a way of finding clients with the best jobs and the highest pay, keeping her crew busy and rolling in the credits. She also runs supplies for the Resistance, sticking it to the First Order any chance she gets.

Skirt: TLC Anakin Skywalker skirt?
Legs, Belt: TAC Han Solo (Upper leg shortened and re-attached)
Boots: Dark Woman (Drilled out and attached to legs)Madeline "Maddie" Withers
Aria's little sister Madeline is bold, fierce, and has a bit of a temper. When a client decides to weasel out of paying for their shipment, the crew sends her to settle up. She's trained herself to wield a purple lightsaber she found floating in a debris field in the Outer Rim, and while she's no Kenobi, she's good enough to take on thugs and the occasional bounty hunter.

Snowy has been travelling through the galaxy for over 300 years, so it's not surprising that he knows the fastest way between pretty much any two points in it. He serves as the Sunfire's Navigation expert, plotting the fastest routes with the least amount of First Order entanglement.

Vest: CustomDoc Hollandaise
Doc Hollandaise is the crew's doctor. In the days of the Rebellion, he served as a field medic, patching up soldiers on the front lines. He serves primarily as a medic on the Sunfire as well, but is not afraid to return fire on hostiles. Apparently there's no hippocratic oath on Iktotch.

Built from scrap astromech parts by two young women with very little experience, Aria and Maddie's droid serves as the ship's mechanic and diagnostician. After twenty-one failed attempts to boot up his processor matrix, they finally got this little guy up and running and now he works as well as any R2 unit off the line.
