Seeing as I'm currently obsessed with Star Wars I'll do this
Jedis:(This happens before the Jedi council was so strict,the characters were 11 when they were found by the order and the jedi order was ok with these,there also ok with attachments though being set so long before means there a lot more Sith)
Conor:Found by the jedi as a servant of a Earl's son,Devin on the planet of small farm town on the planet of Eura that still has a powerful and tryanical Earl.He used to be a nerfherder (not scruffy looking though) However this all changed when the jedi came,they realized that Conor was powerful and brought him into the Jedi order,he's the padawan of a jedi with a very strong force connection,Lenori,he trains with the other three padawans his age.He uses a blue lightsaber
Rollan:Grew up as a homeless kid in a small porting town on Amaya,he knew had to rough it but had his own code of honer until he got caught trying to get medicine which got him thrown into a high secuirty prison on Coruscant where he had gotten the attention of jedi master Tarik who got him out of jail,hoping to train him as an padawan.This was frowned on by the council but Tarik was stubborn so they let him,though Rollan has serious doubts about the order he does eventualy get close to the other padawans,espically Meilin (they have a total Han and Leia thing) and his mentor,leaving him completly devasted when Tarik was killed in battle against the sith.He uses a yellow lightsaber
Abeke:Found on the savanna planet of Nilo,the disgraced daughter of a widower who always preffered her older sister,until she was found by the sith who convienced her father to let them take her in.She joins,they make them sound like the heros and the jedi are the bad ones but when they slaughter a jedi who had just saved her life in a battle she decided to join the Jedi (I need a character for her master,any ideas?) She was still very distrusted but her group of padawans eventually welcomed her,espically Conor
Meilin:Grew up in the capital of the largest planet in the Erdas system,Zhong,she was the daughter of a powerful general.The jedi came,her father yelled at her to go with them she refused to but the jedi took her anyways,they needed more powerful warriors and she seemed like one.She became the apprentice of Finn,a once great jedi general distraught after the death of his closest jedi compainins.She uses a green lightsaber
Shane:The king of a small forgoten planet blocked off from trade and dying of a strange illness until a group of sith came,led by an estranged sith name Zerif.Zerif saw his chance for more powerful and saw a great force presence of the young boy and manipulated him into becoming a sith apprentice in exchange for a cure for his people which he supplied,in return they had to fight for him and the sith as soldiers called Conquers,this all goes without of a hitch pretty soon they have the majority of the Erdas system under his control and are about to try to do the same with the rest of the galaxy.That is until a young sith attracts his attention,Abeke,he becomes her apprentice that is until she has a sudden change of heart and joins the jedi,now he has to choose a side,the sith and his people or Abeke?
Devin:The son of the earl of Trunswick,he eventually joins the conquers/sith when his father allies with them.Zerif seeing a small force-sensitivy in him decideds to train him in a group of special elites,not quite real sith but powerful memembers of the conquer group.He enjoys the power and feeling well worthy of something and show that little twerp conor his place doesn't hurt...
