Okay, maybe I missed this somewhere, but I didn't see an example for this situation in the book:

 

If a character has an equal characteristic and skill, do they only get 3 ability dice, and no proficiency dice?

 

Thanks!

If they have something like Brawn 2, Melee 2 then they roll 2 proficiency dice only.

Actually, it's the exact opposite, as Callidon noted.  So for your example, the character would be rolling three Proficiency dice and no ability dice if they had both the Skill and it's relevant Characteristic at Rank 3.

And to be clear (as I know some folks do tend to miss this), if your Skill Rank is higher than your Characteristic Rank, such as a Trandoshan with Agility 1 and Ranged (Heavy) 3, they'd use the skill rank to determine their Ability dice (3 in this case) and then bump one of them up to a Proficiency die based upon his Agility, for a dice pool (before Boost, Challenge, Difficulty, or Setback dice) of 1 Proficiency die and 2 Ability dice.
