2. Trivia question
One of the well-known Star Wars characters—let’s define as one who appears in more than one of the six movies—has something written either on their costume or on something their character carries.

And not only that, but the most likely translation of the words shown describe the story arc of that character. Name the character involved and the Earth language used.
