Luke at this age has a lot of growing up to do and is much like his father was when he was younger. He was often quite impatient as well as impulsive when it came to his actions. While growing up with his Aunt and Uncle he had little time or interest in the workings of the moisture farm where they lived on Tatooine, instead looked forward to the future and all that it would bring - he dreamed of going to the Imperial Academy to learn to fly. He also often acted without thinking which got him in trouble a lot while growing up and would often fight with his relatives even if he knew deep down that they meant well. All of his life, Luke has craved adventure and excitement, often putting himself in danger just so he can enjoy himself. He could often be found flying in the canyons, shooting some of the local wildlife with his friends and just generally getting up to all sorts of mischief. His skill at this sort of thing was to do with his ability to access the Force, not that he knew of it at the time.
It is probably not surprising that he can be quite stubborn at times. He hates being insulted in anyway and will argue until he is blue in the face. He also hates admitting defeat and will do all that he can to get himself out of a situation on top, no matter how sticky it is. This isn't all that surprising though given how impulsive his actions can be at times.
Luke can be fairly naive at times, often believing that there is always good in people no matter what, that they can be redeemed which is something he will never grow out of. He is also therefore fairly trusting though his instincts will sometimes warn him away from people - he was never that trusting of Ben Kenobi for instance though that was also to do with the local superstition surrounding him.
Luke, despite butting heads with his Aunt and Uncle a lot while growing up, is incredibly loyal to his friends and family and would do anything for them to the point that it will eventually be used against him numerous times over his life. While many people might view this as a weakness, and Luke knows in many ways it is, he views the support and strength they give him as one of his strengths and driving motivators to keep the galaxy in peace and to protect them as much as he can.
Despite that, Luke has matured a lot from the Farmboy he was when we first met him on Tatooine. Yes he can still be impulsive but he also is a lot calmer and more sensible than he used to be. He will still rush head first into things if he believes it is the best course of action as shown by him surrender to Vader in order to confront him and the Emperor on the second Death Star. He's willing to pull his weight and while he still has a lot to learn in terms of being a Jedi he wants to do so in order to honour the memory of Anakin Skywalker and all that was sacrificed.
PROUDEST MOMENT or WORST MOMENT: Luke's perhaps proudest moment is on the second Death Star when he managed to get through to his father and turn him on the Emperor saving his life but allowing the fall of the Empire to begin once and for all. He knows that it could very easily have ended differently and he's forever grateful that it didn't but he's more than a little smug that it was due to him even if in a roundabout way that the Emperor died.

FIGHTING SKILLS: 4
ENERGY PROJECTION: 3.5
*this is with the force, otherwise he'd probably be a 2
OTHER POWERS: Force Sensitive
Much like the rest of his family, Luke has a strong connection to the force which is the living presence inside all living things. At the moment he doesn't have much of an idea of what he is doing instead is more instinctual about it than knowledge based.
Excellent Pilot & Mechanic
Partly inherited skill, partly the force guiding him Luke is great at not only flying but fixing anything mechanical
