Edge of the Empire Profession Quotes

When she was picking out a D&D character to play from the excellent pregenerated PCs on the D&D website, my favorite player (and wife) found the character quotes to be extra helpful in getting a feel for each character. A few days later, when I mentioned wanting to start an Edge of the Empire campaign, she said she’d like to find something similar for characters in that game. We looked around and didn’t find anything like that, so I wrote the ones below, one for each profession. If you find them helpful, or you think of fun quotes of your own, let me know in the comments!
