!Major Characters
[[folder:The Jedi Order]]

!'''Satele Shan'''
[[quoteright:177:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Satele-Shan-001_775.png]]

Descendent of Bastila Shan and Darth Revan. She started out as a Padawan, then a Consular during the return of the Sith Empire. A few years later, Satele is the current Grand Master of the Jedi Council. Voiced by JenniferHale.

* ActionGirl
* ActionMom: Evidently, she has a son.
* ActorAllusion: JenniferHale also portrayed Bastila, Satele's ancestor, in ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''.
* BareHandedBladeBlock: To a ''[[BeyondTheImpossible lightsaber]]''.
* BigGood: She's Grand Master of the Jedi Council, after all.
* DissonantSerenity[=/=]TranquilFury: Her being able to fight like this left Eldon Ax in awe.
* DoubleWeapon: Her lightsaber.
* InTheBlood: In terms of personality and appearance, she took after Bastila. She also seems to have inherited Revan's godlike powers.
* {{Irony}}: Is the leader of the Jedi despite being descended from one of the most powerful Sith Lords who ever lived.
* MyOwnGrandpa: In the real world, not in the game: both Satele and Bastila (her grandmother) are voiced by JenniferHale.
* OlderThanSheLooks: She's [[NeverMessWithGranny in her 50's]] by the time of the game.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

!'''Gnost-Dural'''

A Kel Dor[[hottip:*:e.g., Plo Koon]] Jedi, Gnost-Dural is the keeper of the Jedi Archives and a major historian within the Order. Voiced by Lance Henriksen.

* CatchPhrase: "I'll elaborate on my next report."
* MrExposition: Delves into the history of the Jedi and the Sith, but certain areas are just his own interpretation of it, and he leaves out several important bits of info to save time (i.e. Ludo Kressh's rivalry with Naga Sadow).
* UnreliableNarrator: Not completely his fault, as he's only working with what he can find, but the player can discover that several of his timeline entries are inaccurate. [[spoiler: For instance, Hylo Vizz escaped the Hutts.]]

!'''Dar'Nala'''

[[quoteright:164:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nala-001_4758.png]]

Satele's Jedi Master, Dar'Nala and her former Padawan were selected to represent the Jedi Order in a peace conference on Alderaan, during the Great Galactic War. The conference, which was arranged by the Sith, was a a method of distraction to pull Republic forces away from the Empire's true goal — sacking the Republic's capital of Coruscant. Following the Empire's crippling attack on Coruscant, the Republic and Jedi delegates on Alderaan were forced to accept the Imperial-authored peace agreement, called the Treaty of Coruscant. Naturally, Dar'Nala was heavily opposed to signing the document, but acquiesced on the suggestion of Jedi Grand Master Zym and Republic Senator Paran Am-Ris.

After the conference, Dar'Nala secretly conspired with other individuals within the Republic to dismantle the tentative peace and reignite the war with the Sith Empire. To that end, Dar'Nala manipulated Republic and Sith forces to openly combat one another while fanning the flames of rivalry within Imperial ranks. She eventually faked her own death in order to operate in anonymity for a time, during which she orchestrated the assassination of Republic political figures and the continuation of conflicts that began during the Great War.

Her ultimate goal was to assassinate Darth Baras, the man who drafted and presented the Treaty of Coruscant. Dar'Nala conspired with Republic Lieutenant Harron Tavus, Jedi Knight Fortris Gall, and the Wookiee mercenary Dalborra to kill Lord Baras in the Crystal Caves on Dantooine, leading to a short battle between her crew and Baras, but it was interrupted by Satele. By the end of it, Satele killed Dar'Nala, propelling the former to both a seat on the Jedi High Council and a place as the Grand Master of the Order.

* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: A particularly glaring case given who she was trying to fight against. Ultimately her own hatred makes her actions no better than the Sith.
* {{Hypocrite}}: She hates the Sith with a passion, but her own hatred lead her to the Dark Side.
* KnightTemplar: Very, ''very'' much so
* NotSoDifferent: From the very thing she hates so much.

!'''Ven Zallow'''

[[quoteright:171:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ven-Zallow-001_608.png]]

A Jedi Master noted for his wise counsel and composed nature, featured in the ''Deceived'' trailer. Zallow led the Jedi during the initial clash against the Sith, and he fought Malgus in a lightsaber duel, but he was stabbed through the abdomen by Malgus shortly thereafter.

* DuelToTheDeath: With Malgus.
* KilledOffForReal: By Malgus, in the "Deceived" trailer.
* NervesOfSteel: Was one of the only Jedi who ''never'' flinched or panicked during the invasion of the Jedi Temple, something Malgus noted and admired.
* WorthyOpponent: Malgus considered him such after their duel.

!'''Belth Allusis'''

[[quoteright:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Belth-Allusis-001_4345.png]]

A {{Badass}} Jedi Master that led the Republic during their last stand on Bothawui. Although all of the Republic defenders, including Allusis, were killed, they managed to inflict heavy casualties upon the Sith, forcing them to retreat. The last stand of "The Heroes of Bothawui" — as Allusis and his men became known — restored hope across the Republic and served as a turning point in the war. The strategies developed by them helped the Republic to temporarily hold off the Sith advancement, until the Sith allied with the Mandalorians four years later.

* {{Badass}}: He was among the very last to die during the battle on Bothawui, where the Sith outnumbered the Republic ''seven to one''.
** BadassBeard
* {{Determinator}}: He ''would not'' back down, even after being offered to surrender by the Sith.
* HeroicSacrifice: Dying alongside his men, Allusis' sacrifice marked a turning point in the war as it was the first significant resistance to the Sith invasion. His last stand became a rallying cry for the Republic forces.
* LastStand: The Battle of Bothawui.
* NotAfraidToDie

!'''Aryn Leneer'''

A female Jedi knight and onetime apprentice to Ven Zallow, Aryn Leneer was selected to accompany the Galactic Republic's delegation to Alderaan for the signing of a peace treaty with the Sith Empire. After sensing that Master Zallow was killed, she left Alderaan and went to Coruscant to find out what had transpired, and upon learning that Darth Malgus was responsible for killing Zallow, vowed to avenge her masters' death. An empath, emotions of every range were a daily part of Aryn's life, giving her the unique ability to personalize with those she interacted with.

* TheEmpath
* UndyingLoyalty: To her master, especially.

!'''Shigar Konshi'''

A male Kiffar Padawan to Satele Shan. He has a unique ability to touch objects and see visions of events the objects have been near, though he hasn't mastered it.

After the events of ''Fatal Alliance'', his performance in the battle, mastery of his gift, and resistance to Darth Chratis' temptation cause the Jedi Council to declare him worthy to undergo the Jedi Trials and become a Jedi Knight.

* DontThinkFeel: How he comes to master his ability.
* MrFanservice: Described as tall, slender, and handsome.
* FacialMarkings
* ShipTease[=/=]UnresolvedSexualTension: With Larin Moxla.
* WideEyedIdealist: At first, but his experiences in ''Fatal Alliance'' makes him aware that not everything is in black-and-white.
* YouWereTryingTooHard: He finally masters his gift by just letting go instead of racking his brain concentrating.

[[folder:The Galactic Republic]]

!'''Supreme Chancellor Janarus'''

[[quoteright:166:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/SC-Janarus-001_1150.png]]

The leader of the Galactic Republic during the time of the Cold War, initially serving as Senator to Coruscant. Upon the Sacking of Coruscant, Janarus took it upon himself to pull the leaderless Republic back together after suffering such a crippling blow by the end of the Great War. The great respect the people and politicians had for him is what prompted them to unanimously elect him as Supreme Chancellor, replacing the one that was lost in the attack. However, in the years since his inauguration, the support from his peers gradually declined, as many system governments continue to chafe at the costs of rebuilding and his military advisors grow increasingly frustrated with his refusal to take sterner action to stamp out sedition. Janarus's stance has always been that the Republic's core values of freedom, justice, and the right to self-governance are that much more important to protect when standing in the face of the brutally tyrannical Sith Empire. His biggest political rivals are General Garza of the Republic Special Forces, Governor Saresh of Taris and the Ord Mantellian Separatist movement.

* BigGood: As the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, Janarus shares this role with Satele.
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity]]
* HeroAntagonist: [[spoiler:Particularly for the Bounty Hunter.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]: [[spoiler:Willingly tanks his own political career in order to clear the Bounty Hunter's name.]]
* HypocriticalHumor: In his own words, "All politicians are liars". [[spoiler:He is however willing to sacrifice his own career to make sure the people know the truth.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]: [[spoiler:Possibly, by the Bounty Hunter]]

!'''Larin Moxla'''

A Kiffar Republic trooper who was dishonorably discharged for snitching on a superior. Choosing to continue fighting for the sake of protecting the people, even without an income, she met Shigar Konshi and decided to tag along with him.

* ActionGirl
* ArtificialLimbs: Eventually gets a mechanical hand after Eldon Ax sliced it off.
* BadassNormal
* {{Determinator}}
* EmbarrassingNickname: Toxic Moxla.
* FacialMarkings
* ObliviousToLove: Gives no sign that she's aware that Ula Vii likes her.
* ShipTease[=/=]UnresolvedSexualTension: With Shigar Konshi.

!'''Jace Malcom'''

[[quoteright:184:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jace-Malcom-001_6626.png]]

A Republic soldier who witnessed the return of the Sith Empire, and helped Satele Shan escape. He later led Republic troops in the Battle of Alderaan, and helped Satele defeat Darth Malgus. He is an inspiration to Troopers throughout the Republic. Voiced by KevinMichaelRichardson.

* {{Badass}}
* BadassNormal: Able to stand toe-to-toe with Sith Lords by using a combination of MoreDakka, Combat Pragmatism, and straight-up Cojones.
* BadassNative: Looks vaguely Maori, which implies an in-universe Mandalorian heritage.
* ColonelBadass: He is a Colonel by the time you meet him on Alderaan.
* {{Determinator}}: The man is ''driven''; you can give him that.
* FoeTossingCharge: Through several Sith, even.
* GatlingGood: Both him and the soldiers under his command are willing to oblige.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His face gets '''wrecked''' in the end of the Battle of Alderaan. When the wounds heal, half of his face is covered with scars.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: He frickin' TACKLES Darth Malgus.
* KnifeNut
* MadeOfIron: Whatever he sustained, from blast shots to ''Force Lightning'', his armor seemed to absorb all the injuries that went towards him.
* MoreDakka: He is always seen wielding a large, explosion causing weapon (either a blaster cannon or a grenade launcher).
* ScreamingWarrior

[[folder:Sith Lords]]

!'''The Emperor'''

Leader of the revitalized Sith Empire from Naga Sadow's era. His birth name is Tenebrae and his Sith name is Lord Vitiate, but he has long since discarded both names and is referred to by his title. Voiced by Doug Bradley.

* AGodAmI: He's an incredibly powerful Force user and he knows it. He is more of a deity than a ruler to the Imperial citizenry and he prefers it that way.
* AndIMustScream: ''Literature/{{Revan}}'' implies that the method he used to attain immortality leaves him in constant and agonizing pain.
* BadassBoast:
-->"My life spans millennia. Legions have risen to test me. […] My ascendance is inevitable. A day, a year, a millennium — it matters not. I hold the patience of stone and the will of stars. Your striving is insignificant. Let your death be the same."
* BastardBastard: Was the illegitimate offspring of the planet's ruler and a farmer's wife.
* BigBad: For the Jedi Knight storyline.
** BiggerBad: For every other storyline, including all comics, novels and games taking place during the KnightsOfTheOldRepublic era.
* BlackCloak: Since he's a recluse, in-universe depictions of him tend to have him wear a black cloak that conceals all of his facial features.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Said to be his most striking feature. This is a clue over how he's like as a person - it's [[{{Understatement}} not pleasant]].
* TheChessmaster
* CompositeCharacter: [[StarWars Emperor Palpatine]] and [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Darth Nihilus]].
* TheCorrupter
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Decides to step in and whack the Jedi Knight destined to beat him while the knight's weak and by using his friend to do so. It didn't work but came close.
* EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep: Most call him the Sith Emperor.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* EnfantTerrible: He killed his mother and fake dad at 6 and his real father at ten.
* EvilOverlord
* FightingAShadow: Seems like it.
* FourIsDeath: He orchestrated ''four'' consecutive wars, very nearly wiping out the Republic and the Jedi, if it weren't for Revan and the Exile.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Pinhead is now the Would be destroyer of the Universe.
* HumanoidAbomination
* TheManBehindTheMan: His influence is so wide spread that Gnost-Dural considers his lack of involvement in the Exar Kun War to be of immense interest.
* OmnicidalManiac: Enough that the Dark Council plotted to overthrow him for it.
* OrcusOnHisThrone
* PhysicalGod: ''Definitely''.
* PowerOfTheVoid: Even more than ''Nihilus''. With the latter, he creates a wound in the Force. With the Emperor, he creates a ''void'' in the Force.
* TheScrappy: [[invoked]] In-universe; prior to the Great Galactic War, ''tons'' of Sith Lords (indeed, ''the entire Dark Council'' plotted to overthrow the Emperor in the ''Revan'' novel.
* ShroudedInMyth: Not much is known about him, other than the broad details.
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries this after the Jedi Knight defeats him. It didn't work.

!'''Darth Malgus'''

[[quoteright:198:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Darth-Malgus-001_5535.png]]

A mighty Sith Lord who fights on the front lines in the name of bringing the galaxy under the rule of the Sith Emperor. Unlike most of his colleagues, he prefers the thrill of fighting enemies head-on, and prefers not to get into the political power struggles of the Dark Council. Voiced by Jamie Glover.

* {{Badass}}
** HandicappedBadass: After the Battle of Alderaan, his injuries force him to rely on a respirator.
* BaldOfEvil
* BlackKnight
* BloodKnight
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Here's his interpretation of the Force.
-->'''Malgus''':"Conflict drives a more perfect understanding of the Force. The Empire expands and creates conflict. In that regard, the Empire is an instrument of the Force."
* DarthVaderClone
* {{Determinator}}: Particularly noticeable in the Hope trailer.
* [[spoiler:DiscOneFinalBoss]]: Malgus is the most visible leader of the Sith, and is prominently featured in concept art, fiction, advertising, and merchandising. [[spoiler:He dies before the first major content patch.]]
* [[spoiler: DisneyVillainDeath[=/=]NeverFoundTheBody]]
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Veradun. Only his wife is allowed to call him that, and only if they are alone.
* EvilBrit
* EvilOverlooker: For both the Standard and [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition Digital Deluxe Edition]].
* MadeOfIron: If having a grenade explode in your face doesn't stop you, I don't know what will.
* NobleDemon: He sincerely loves his wife, but he was forced to kill her after one of his rivals used her as leverage against him.
** He is also known as a reformer within the Sith Empire; instead of engaging in power struggles on the [[DeadlyDecadentCourt Sith Council]], he prefers to lead from the front and is one of the most outspoken voices for change within the Empire.
* ShouldersOfDoom
* UnholyMatrimony: Was married to a Twilek woman named Elena Daru.

!'''Darth Marr'''

A member of the Dark Council with a particular distaste for Lord Calypho and Tened Kel. Despite his cold and merciless nature, Marr was rational enough to not kill an individual if they possessed important information he needed to know, such as when he decided to spare Teneb Kel for his defiance when Kel mentioned he had something the Dark Council wanted.

* CombatCommentator: To the Empire's side in the Voidstar Warzone.
* CoolMask: Which looks modeled after Revan's mask.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Refusing to help Baras when Baras begged for help.
* MeaningfulName: Potentially related to Visas Marr.
* PragmaticVillainy

!'''Darth Howl'''

Another member of the Dark Council, Darth Howl was one of the more outspoken members of the Imperial Dark Council, and used his position to intimidate those with less influence within the Sith Empire. His apprentice is Eldon Ax. By the time the main game occurs, he is no longer a member of the Dark Council.

* CombatPragmatist: He uses blasters as well as lightsabers.
* EgomaniacHunter: Owns a game preserve and often hunts in his spare time.

!'''Darth Angral'''

A Sith Lord in charge of the fleet that sacked Coruscant, Angral famously stormed into the Senate and murdered the Supreme Chancellor, forcing the Republic diplomats on Alderaan to submit to the Sith's demands; the Treaty of Coruscant was signed. [[spoiler: He is the father of Lord Tarnis, a Sith spy killed by the Jedi Knight on Coruscant, after which he [[AvengingTheVillain swears revenge.]]]]

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* BloodKnight
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Is the final antagonist of Act I, and the Jedi Knight's prime foe.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes
* ItsPersonal

!'''Darth Adraas'''

A rival to Malgus, Adraas was chosen by Darth Angral to lead the fifty Sith warriors on board a stolen Republic shuttle for an attack on the Jedi Temple during the Sacking of Coruscant. Adraas' skill in politics allowed him to curry favor with his superiors. In defiance of Darth Malgus' orders to have his lover Daru immediately transported to the Steadfast, Lord Adraas instead redirected her to a local hospital overtaken by Sith soldiers. There, she was left behind by other Imperials present who eventually moved their operation to a medical ship.

Adraas' actions regarding Daru are what prompted Malgus into killing off his wife, who realized that his enemies could use her as leverage against him. After leaving Coruscant, an infuriated Malgus cornered Adraas in his personal estate, killing the latter off in a duel.

* TheFaceless: [[http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/f/f1/Adraas.jpg Here is Andraas' picture]].
* FantasticRacism: to Twi'leks. And any non humans for that matter.
* KilledOffForReal: By Malgus.
* TheRival: Briefly, to Malgus.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He's a racist.
* SmugSnake
* TedBaxter: After boasting about his mastery of the Dark Side a lot, Malgus takes him down in a CurbStompBattle.

!'''Eldon Ax'''

Born Cinzia Xandret, she is a Sith Apprentice with a personal stake in the plot of ''Fatal Alliance'': the mastermind of the Hexes is her own mother, Lema Xandret.

Eventually, she manages to gain control of the Hexes and assassinates her Master, Darth Chratis, with them, then orders them all to self-destruct. Darth Howl offers to make her his Apprentice, and she accepts.

* DarkActionGirl
* EvilRedhead
* GenreSavvy: She destroyed the Hexes instead of using them to conquer the galaxy because she realized that they eventually turn on their masters.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: When Darth Chratis made her his Apprentice, he erased her memory of her childhood and mother. Strangely, when he decided to reverse the amnesia, she ''still'' couldn't remember.
** Really, it isn't that surprising. We know that Jedi are taken from their parents as infants and toddlers, and knowing the parallels in the two orders, there isn't any reason to think the Sith wouldn't do the same. More than likely she can't remember because she was simply too young.
* UnknownRival: She becomes obsessed with killing Dao Stryver after the Mandalorian humiliated her in battle. Stryver doesn't really give her a second thought.
* VillainousCrush: May have a small one on Shigar Konshi, given that she tried to goad him into getting angry, and when she finally succeeded, she commented that he looks more attractive that way.

!'''Darth Chratis'''

[[quoteright:171:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Darth-Chratis-001_9805.png]]

An ambitious Sith Lord with dreams of one day rising to the Dark Council. Eldon Ax was his Apprentice, whom he treated rather poorly.

He was eventually killed during ''Fatal Alliance'' when Ax commanded the Hexes to kill him. Later, Darth Howl told Ax that everybody on the Dark Council hated Chratis and would never have promoted him.

* AttackAttackAttack
* BadBoss
* BladeOnAStick[=/=]SwordCane: His lightsaber.
* KilledOffForReal
* NotNowKiddo: Constantly ignored Eldon's advice (and she was usually right).
* SmugSnake
* SuicidalOverconfidence
* WeCanRuleTogether: After he mistakenly assumed Eldon Ax and Satele Shan were killed, he tried to tempt Shigar Konshi into turning to the Dark Side and becoming his Apprentice. He failed.

!'''Exal Kressh'''

[[quoteright:153:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Exal-Kressh-001_2650.png]]

The Emperor's apprentice, Exal was noted for being a Sith hybrid. She believed it was her right and privilege by blood to become the Emperor's apprentice and heir. However, after the Emperor attempted to make her a slave instead of his heir, she felt betrayed by her Master. Her hatred towards the Emperor was such that she was willing to give vital Imperial information to the Jedi and the Republic that would potentially undermine the Empire's campaign in the Great Galactic War.

During the early years of the Great Galactic War, she abandoned her duties in the Kathol Rift and fled toward the fringes of Republic Space. The Emperor and the Dark Council responded by assigning Teneb Kel to hunt her down and kill her. She destroyed Lenico Colony Blue while fighting against Sith apprentice Teneb Kel. Teneb barely survived the duel, but was able to escape from the colony and took shelter, later killing Exal on Korriban.

* BlueBlood: As a decedent of Ludo Keesh and a Sith "Pureblood", she believed herself to be entitled by blood to be the Emperor's apprentice ''and heir''.
* DeceptiveDisciple: {{Inverted}} in this case as it was the Emperor who intended to betray Exal from the outset.
* EnemyMine: She cares little for the Jedi or Republic but aids them in order to hurt the Sith Empire's war efforts. This is born purely out of a desire for {{Revenge}}.
* SmugSnake

[[folder:Resurgent Sith Empire]]

!'''Rycus Kilran'''

An Imperial Grand Moff best-known for his role during the Sacking of Coruscant. Voiced by Simon Templeman.

* AffablyEvil
* AppropriatedAppellation: "The Butcher of Coruscant" is his favorite title.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking

* TheButcher: Refered to as "The Butcher of Coruscant" by both the Republic and [[AppropriatedAppellation himself]].
* CardCarryingVillain
* ColdSniper
* TheDragon: To the Sith. After Minister of Intelligence, whose role doesn't involve combat, Grand Moff is the highest rank available to a non-Sith in the Imperial military.
* EvilBrit
* {{Expy}}: Of Grand Moff Tarkin.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has a nasty burn mark on the left side of his face.
* TheStrategist: Reputed as a brilliant military tactician.


!'''Odile Vaiken'''

The first Sith-aligned Imperial to hold the rank of Grand Moff and the innovator of the Imperial military. Vaiken Spacedock, a major Imperial quest-hub, is named in his honor.

* AntiVillain: His actions made the Imperial military the threat to the Jedi and the Republic that it is today, though his portrayal by Gnost-Dural seemed to be that of a man who was devoted to improving his Empire rather than a ruthless butcher like Kilran.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: He spent half his life making schematics for the Imperial armada. When he took the first prototype Star Destroyer for a test run by attacking a bunch of aliens, Vaiken was killed in the bridge of his spaceship, a fitting end for the first Imperial Grand Moff.
* UndyingLoyalty: He was noted as being loyal to an Empire where he would always be considered a second-class citizen.

!'''Ula Vii'''

An Epicanthix agent who pretends to be a Republic envoy in order to spread misinformation and gather intelligence for the Empire. During ''Fatal Alliance'', he gets caught up in events and forced to work with the heroes to save that day.

* OddFriendship: With Jet Nebula.

!'''Dao Stryver'''

A Mandalorian warrior who expresses contempt for Jedi, Sith, the Republic, and the Empire, but manipulated events to force the Republic and Empire into a temporary alliance to deal with the threat of the Hexes during the novel ''Fatal Alliance''.

A smuggler, born Jeke Kerron, who found a [[MacGuffin strange artifact]] in the remains of the self-destructed ship, ''Cinzia'', kick-starting the plot of ''Fatal Alliance''. He gets caught up in events and forced to work with the heroes to save the day.

* BadassNormal
* CoolShip
* CrazyPrepared: One Example: He regularly drinks Reactor Core, even though it tastes disgusting, because drinking it renders one temporarily immune to knock-out gas.
* GenreSavvy:
-->"I'm not power-mad like you. There might be money to be had in empire building, but never at the top. You only end up on the wrong end of a coup, or an invasion, or a sniper's rifle."
* LovableRogue
* OddFriendship: With Ula Vii.
* SherlockScan: He's extremely observant. With a few glances, he's easily able to tell things like: Larin Moxla puts on an act to hide her inner pain, Ula Vii isn't really a Republic envoy, and [[spoiler: Dao Stryver is really a Gektl female]].
* WildCard

!'''Nico Okarr'''

A smuggler who was arrested for trafficking Sith artifacts. While being transported to his cell, the Sith Empire arrived and attacked the space station they were on. Nico volunteered to help Satele Shan and Jace Malcom escape in his ship, which they accepted. Voiced by JohnDiMaggio

* BadassLongCoat
* BadassNormal
* CoolShip

* MaleGaze:
-->'''Okarr ogles a passing Twi'lek woman''\\
'''Jace Malcom''': Eyes front!\\
'''Nico''': Just inspecting the troops, Corporal.
* NiceHat
* UnflinchingWalk

!'''Lema Xandret'''

When her daughter Cinzia was discovered to be Force-sensitive, Lema refused to allow the Sith to take her child. She failed and was sentenced to death, but she escaped, vowing revenge against ''all'' Force-sensitives. She designed incredibly powerful, self-replicating, self-evolving droids to be her instruments, which were soon nicknamed "Hexes" by the other characters. She also tried to form an alliance with the Mandalorians, but Dao Stryver realized that she had gone mad and the Hexes would eventually wipe out all life in the galaxy if they weren't stopped.

* AxCrazy
* CatchPhrase: "We do not recognize your authority!" Sort of. The Hexes constantly say this in her voice.
* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong]]
* GadgeteerGenius[=/=]MadScientist
* HoistByHerOwnPetard: [[spoiler: The Hexes eventually turned on her.]]
* MamaBear: [[spoiler: To prove how obsessed she was with losing her daughter, she made a clone of Cinzia that was modified to not be Force-sensitive.]]
* SanitySlippage

!'''Soa the Infernal One'''
A ''gigantic'' Rakata warlord that broke away from the Infinite Empire and enslaved a thousand planets, before an entire Rakata army imprisoned him within the Eternity Vault. The Flashpoint raid that takes place in there happens [[OhCrap after he breaks out and seizes control of the prison's formidable defenses]].

* EvilSoundsDeep
* LargeAndInCharge
* SealedEvilInACan
* ShockAndAwe: He throws balls of lightning periodically throughout the fight.
* TechnoWizard: He apparently hacked the defenses of the Eternity Vault and turned it into his home base, and he calls the Annihilator Droid fought as the opening boss his "finest creation".

![[spoiler: '''Revan''']]

[[spoiler: Main Character of the original game. After the events of KnightsOfTheOldRepublic, he tried to kill the Sith Emperor with the help of The Exile and T3-M4, only to be betrayed by their ally Lord Scourge. While The Exile and T3-M4 were killed, The Sith Emperor kept Revan alive, feeding on his massive force powers.]]

[[spoiler: In certain Republic quest lines it's possible to find and free Revan with the help of the Exile's force ghost, after which Revan finds HK-47's foundry, and plans to amass a droid army to wipe out the Sith. Certain Sith quest lines will then allow you to put a stop to his plans, apparently killing him and HK-47.]]

* BadassBoast: [[spoiler: "I've saved the Republic twice before. I've fought Mandalores and armies of the Dark Side. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Won't. Stop. Me.]]"]]
* CoolMask
* FateWorseThanDeath: Spent the last 300 odd years in stasis, being slowly drained of power by the Sith Emperor.
* IronicEcho: [[spoiler: "And in the end, as the darkness takes me, I am nothing. Now I know how you felt, old friend."]]
* NotSoDifferent: Acknowledges this right before your Sith party kills him.
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler: Upon his defeat, he disappears in a flash of light before the final blow was struck. His fate is left unknown.]]
* SanitySlippage: Being Mind Raped by the Emperor didn't exactly help his sanity.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Still one of his main character traits. Sure, creating an army of war droids to wipe out the Sith could save the Republic, but it'll also mean killng millions upon millions of citizens of the Sith Empire.

!'''Republic Class-specific Characters'''

!!Jedi Knight
[[folder: Jedi Knight & Companions]]

!The Jedi Knight

''"After years of training, I became a true Jedi. Now, I serve the Order and fight for the Galactic Republic to defeat those who seek to destroy it."''

An extraordinarily talented Jedi Initiate sent to Tython as a Padawan to finish their trials and become a true Knight, the Jedi Knight is soon wrapped up in a Sith plot to annihilate the Jedi and the Republic. The female Jedi Knight is voiced by KariWahlgren, and the male by DavidHayter.

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Early dark side options will have you be this, but the option turns up in dialogue often enough.
* AscendedMeme: After your first fight with a [[spoiler: Child of The Emperor]] you get the chance to deliver the line "It was a trap." to General Var Suthra, a Mon Calamari.
* [[spoiler:AwesomeMomentOfCrowning]]: [[spoiler:A Light-sided Knight is made a Jedi Master by Satele Shan herself in the ending.]]
* BadassLongcoat
* BookDumb: Depending on your choises (s)he can prove to be quite uneducated in things you'd expect a Jedi to know. Never having heard of [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic the Jedi Civil War]] comes to mind.
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: Spends an unknown amount of time brainwashed by the Emperor after their first encounter. It's mostly offscreen, however, and s/he's freed by the time gameplay resumes.]]
* ContinuityNod: The Introspection ability's animation is taken from Qui-Gon Jinn meditating durring the final duel with Maul.
* TheChosenOne: Yes indeed.
* DeadpanSnarker: With the right dialogue options, of course.
* DualWielding: Specialty of Sentinels.
* {{Expy}}: Luke, Anakin and prequel trilogy Obi-Wan. With the Legacy system, the player can take the parallels to Luke to the next level by making a Sith Warrior the Jedi Knight's parent.
** Light Side Starkiller for Jedi Sentinels.
* GeniusBruiser: It's very possible to be this, if you so choose.
* GoodIsNotNice: Dialogue choices give you the option of being a heroic Jerkass, or making pragmatic choices that result in hardship for people who expect you to magically solve their problems.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: The Jedi Knight
** TheLancer: Kira Carsen
** TheBigGuy: Sergeant Rusk
** TheSmartGuy: T7-01
** TheChick: Doc
** TheSixthRanger[=/=]TokenEvilTeammate: [[spoiler: Lord Scourge]]
* TheHero: The Jedi Knight's story is straightforward heroic fantasy adventure.
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HeroesWantRedHeads: With Kira.
* InTheHood: Far more than any other class.
* JediMindTrick: Bonus points for being able to pull it of on [[spoiler: a Sith Lord!]]
* LightIsNotGood: Like Consulars, dark Jedi Knights use the same abilities as their light counterparts.
* MagicKnight: Especially Guardians.
* MasterSwordsman
* MightyGlacier: Guardians can specialize as tanks.
* MyFistForgivesYou: The light sided way of sparing [[spoiler:Bengel Morr's]] life is to assure him he'll be forgiven and taken care of by the council before knocking him out.
* MyGreatestFailure: Some dialogue options indicate that the Knight considers [[spoiler: the destruction of Euphrades]] to be this.
* ThePaladin: This is basically what a Jedi Knight is meant to be in-universe; whether the player decides to actually follow this route is another story...
* ReallyGetsAround: Oddly, male Jedi Knights have more one-night stands than any class except the Smugglers and Imperial Agents.
** The other classes don't get as many [[SexIsEvil Dark Side points]] for it, though. Even ''flirting'' will net the knight a few.
* StabTheSky: Some abilities use this as their animation.
* SwordBeam: The Blade Storm ability.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks

!'''T7-01'''

An astromech droid that's gone for centuries without a memory wipe, T7 is the first companion character for the Jedi Knight to be revealed and the first to join, on Tython. Mechanically, he is the Jedi Knight's ranged tank companion.

* BadassAdorable: Cute little droid... who can rocket launch himself against enemies. "Congratulations, opponent. You've just been hit by an angry, blaster-wielding kegerator traveling at about thirty miles per hour." Bad. Ass.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He always calls you "Jedi" rather than referring to you by name.
* {{Expy}}: Of R2-D2, just like [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic T3-M4]] before him.
* TheGump: He has been present for a number of prominent events in galactic history over his '''long''' life, including the Sith attack of Korriban, seen in the game's opening cinematic (also known as the Return trailer). He was also at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when Malgus attacked it, as seen in the Deceived trailer. According to T7 himself, he was Master Zallow's personal droid at the time.
* HeroWorshipper: "Jedi = Always celebrity to T7"
* LightningGun: Gains one once he reach the level.
* PintsizedPowerhouse
* RobotBuddy
* VerbalTic: Makes every sentence look like a faux mathematic equation, which is common for most Astro-Mech droids.

!'''Kira Carsen'''

A female Human, and the Jedi Knight's Padawan. She is distinctly more carefree and relaxed than most Jedi, but hides a dark secret. [[spoiler:She is actually a Child of the Emperor, created to be a spy, telepathically-controlled puppet, and if necessary, a host-body for the Emperor's consciousness. She escaped from Korriban as a child]]. She joins the Jedi Knight on Coruscant, and is the romance option for a male Jedi Knight. Mechanically, she's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by LauraBailey.

* ActionGirl: Definitely qualifies, being a Jedi and the Jedi Knight's melee damage companion.
* AlliterativeName
* EvilIsStylish: She definitely agrees, envying the Sith's VillainousFashionSense.
-->"Have you ''seen'' what the Sith are wearing? It's like every fashion designer in the galaxy has gone over to the Dark Side."
* DarkAndTroubledPast: As explained above.
* DeadpanSnarker
* [[spoiler:DemonicPossession: Gets possessed by the Emperor at the end of Act 1.]]
* DoubleWeapon: Like Satele, she carries a double-bladed lightsaber, although Kira's starts with a green crystal.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: To her annoyance. Kira is a RequiredPartyMember during the end of Act 1, where she helps the Jedi Knight save an entire planet from destruction. While she ''does'' [[spoiler: get a promotion to Jedi Knight]] afterwards, she gets nowhere near the respect and acclaim that the player does.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* [[spoiler:HeroicWillpower]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Not very noticeable, but she has an unusual enthusiasm for battle, and is frustrated with the glacial progress toward peace made by civilian Republic political leadership. She expresses the view that Jedi are better and more important than non-Force-using Republic personnel, that the latter should rightfully be subordinate to the former, and that Jedi should take a much more active role in galactic politics. Time will tell if she will subvert this trope or not.
-->"I'm not saying we'd be dictators. There'd be fair elections, which we'd win because we're better."
* LoveInterest
** BattleCouple
* ShadowArchetype: To Dark Side!Jaesa Willsaam: Both have similar personalities but almost mirror backstories. [[spoiler: Jaesa was a Jedi who fell after being constantly let down by the Jedi, seeing the flaws in their organization and witnessing the power of the Sith, while Kira, born and trained Sith, defected after one too many experiences of Sith arbitrary cruelty and joined the Jedi after experiencing genuine kindness and acceptance with her eventual Master. Whereas Jaesa ultimately succumbs to the Dark side in the Act I finale, Kira manages to reject it decisively.]]
* StreetUrchin: In her past. That's not the dark and troubled part, however...
* WhatTheHellHero: She is called out by a former friend for [[spoiler:killing a bunch of mercenaries that threatened them.]]

!'''Doc'''

A flirtatious human male medic whose life's work is bringing his great talents as a doctor wherever they're needed most, usually to civilians caught between the big factions in the war. He joins the Jedi Knight on Balmorra. Romance option for the female Jedi Knight. Mechanically, he's obviously the Jedi Knight's healer companion. Voiced by Andrew Bowen.

* ChivalrousPervert
* CityMouse: He's chosen to spend his life doctoring refugees and resistance fighters in miserable, bombed-out warzones, but he's vocal in his appreciation of the comforts of civilization.
-->(on Voss) "You finally brought me someplace nice! Look! Restaurants and shops! Things worth fighting for."\\
(on Corellia) "I love Corellia. The people, the nightlife, the fine beverages...let's keep this planet intact."
* CombatMedic
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Doc's character model and elements of his characterization uncannily resemble BruceCampbell.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: He's furious when a less-gifted medschool classmate is promoted to acting head of the Republic Health Administration, and complains that "real doctors go out and save lives; idiots stay on Coruscant and get promoted."
* GentlemanAdventurer: Grew up on a wealthy, high-technology world, graduated with honors from the most prestigious medical school in the Core Worlds, and spends most of his time treating refugees, resistance fighters, and underworld bosses as an alternative to taking [[HospitalParadiso more comfortable, remunerative work]] and dying of boredom.
-->"I keep getting offers to go work at a medcenter. And I keep telling the doctors, "No, I ''like'' getting shot at!"
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler:Archiban Kimble]]. He insists that you just call him Doc.
* FlirtingUnderFire: More like "flirting under every conceivable condition." He meets the Knight during a [[ZergRush Collicoid incursion]] on the field hospital where he works. If the knight is female, or if a male knight has Kira as his active companion, he begins flirting right away.
* GunsAkimbo: And one is a shotgun.
* HandsomeLech
* HospitalHottie
* InHarmsWay: After the leaders of the Balmorran Resistance put a gun to his head, he figures he's no longer welcome there, and that traveling with the Knight is the best way to satisfy his affinity for challenge, danger, and novelty.
* JustLikeRobinHood: On at least two occasions, he's scammed gangsters and crime-lords out of large sums of money and funneled all of the proceeds into field hospitals and refugee camps.
* LoveableRogue: Emphasizes this.
* LoveInterest
** BattleCouple
** LadykillerInLove:[[spoiler: his romance with the female Knight progresses along these lines.]]
* TheMedic: Oh, yes.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: An interesting version of this. Get his affection high enough and [[spoiler: he sets off to cure Nem'ro the Hutt, found during the Hutta storyline for Agents and Bounty Hunters, of a rare wasting disease. He's paying a hostage to loiter aboard your ship in the meantime, so that he'll have some leverage to negotiate in case he runs into complications during the job. That "hostage," is Kaliyo Djannis, the Imperial Agent's first companion, and apparently his one-time flame. The very next conversation has him complaining that a Bounty Hunter killed Nem'ro before the success of his treatment could be independently verified by the Journal of Xenomedicine, so he's not going to get any recognition for it. Yes, that's right, Doc interacts indirectly with two other player classes.]]
-->[[spoiler:"Stupid Bounty Hunter!"]]
* PornStache
* RebelRelaxation: His standard pose abord the ship.
* SurgeonsCanDoAutopsiesIfTheyWant: Doc's a field medic who also seems to do epidemiology and pharmacology.
* TrustMeImADoctor: Word-for-word quotation whenever he suggests awesome and insane stuff, like compounding volatile, toxic pharmaceuticals aboard your ship, or [[spoiler:like his foolproof plan of having children with the female Jedi Knight.]]
-->[[spoiler:"Those robes you people wear are pretty spacious. I'm betting we could hide a little Doc under them. Once the kid's born we'll just tell everyone it's my cousin."]]
* WeHelpTheHelpless: Doc's Codex entry makes this quite clear.

!'''Sergeant Fideltin Rusk'''

A male Chagrian Republic soldier, Sergeant Rusk is dedicated to the Republic and noted for his bravery... or recklessness, some would say, and Rusk is never one to back down from a fight or show signs of weakness, especially to the Empire. The Jedi Knight recruits him on Hoth. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Ron Yuan.

* AlmightyJanitor: Forgoes promotion so he can stay in the field.
* BloodKnight
* GoodIsNotNice
* KnightTemplar: He prioritizes the mission over ''everything'' else, and openly admires the Jedi for their apparent lack of emotion when making decisions.
* LeeroyJenkins: While he survives because of being a badass, his squadmates who followed him aren't so lucky.
--> '''Rusk:''' Another successful suicide mission!
* ProudWarriorRace: Inverted. Chagrians are generally pacifists. Rusk is an anomaly.
* TheStoic
* WarIsGlorious
* WeHaveReserves

!'''Lord Scourge'''

A male Sith Pureblood and Sith warrior, Lord Scourge is the Emperors' Wrath, right hand and executioner of the Emperor. [[spoiler: However, Lord Scourge can be redeemed - to a degree - on a special assignment after Hoth by the Jedi Knight.]] Mechanically, he's the class's melee tank companion. Voiced by Joseph Gatt.
* AffablyEvil
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Subverted. He'd been planning to defect for quite some time before you defeated him; the timing was a coincidence.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Though he insists it's actually EnemyMine.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: In ''Literature/{{Revan}}''
* DragonWithAnAgenda: To the Emperor.
* TheDreaded: Even the Dark Council fears him.
* EmotionEater: In ''Literature/{{Revan}}'' his abillity to draw power from his opponent's fear and hatred is his greatest strength. It also makes it harder for him to fight droids and Jedi.
* EnemyMine
* EvenEvilHasStandards: The only reason he's helping you is because even ''he'' realized the Sith Emperor is insane.
* HeroKiller: Well, he killed [[spoiler:the Exile, and threw Revan under the bus]].
* ImmortalityHurts: [[spoiler:According to him, the price of his immortality is his senses. He can no longer taste, smell, touch and is evidently colorblind.]]
* InTheBack: To [[spoiler:the Exile]].
* LivingLegend
* [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Really 300 Years Old]]
* RedBaron: The Emperors' Wrath
* SixthRanger
* TokenEvilTeammate: He sticks out like a sore thumb among the Knight's other companions, and not just because of the blood-red skin.
* WhoNeedsEnemies

!Doctor Godera

* InsufferableGenius

!Watcher One

* AffablyEvil
* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: To give himself time to capture Godera before the player could, he offers to show you 'distraction' in the form of a (real) top secret sith assassin's plan to wipe out a republic settlement, which you otherwise can't afford to ignore.
** A light side option on the other hand give you the choice of giving him the same, by [[spoiler: letting him go, because he is no longer a threat anyway because he [[YouHaveFailedMe can't afford to return]] after his failure to capture the player character]].

* [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy]]
* [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears Jedi]]: She believes that a droid that went without a memory wipe for long could eventually become capable of using the Force. Most other Jedi regard her love of droids as a bizarre eccentricity.

!!Jedi Consular
[[folder: Jedi Consular & Companions]]

!The Jedi Consular

''"A Jedi will always seek the truth. I will study the mysteries of the Force, and act with calm and clarity. I will expose the dark side's deceit to unite our allies. And with the Force on our side, justice will prevail."''

A new member of the Jedi Order, Padawan to a highly unconventional archaeologist and scholar among the Jedi Council, the Consular is swiftly drawn into an ancient mystery on Tython and a hero gone rogue. These establish the tone and primary activities of the Consular: exploring ancient secrets and conducting diplomacy, often with dangerous people. The female Jedi Consular is voiced by Athena Karkanis, and the male by NolanNorth.

* AdventurerArchaeologist: Spends a lot of time investigating holocrons and the history of the Jedi Order.
* {{Ambadassador}}: Being a diplomat isn't quite the Consular's full time job, but they do it enough to quality.
* BadassBookworm: The Consular is portrayed as very scholarly for a Jedi.
* ChildProdigy: Is implied to be this - during the intro, Yuon Par mentions that the Consular "was stronger in the Force at four years old than [Yuon] was at fifteen."
* CombatMedic: Healing Sages are far from defenseless.
* DishingOutDirt: Some of the Consular's telekinetic abilities manifest by launching pieces of the ground at foes.
* DoubleWeapon: The Shadow advanced class uses a double-bladed lightsaber.
* {{Expy}}: Of the wiser Jedi, like Yoda and original trilogy Obi-Wan.
* HealingHands: Sages get healing abilities and can specialize in them.
* InsufferableGenius: A dark-side Consular comes off as this.
* {{Invisibility}}: Shadows learn how to do this.
* ImpracticallyFancyOutfit: From what's been previewed, the Consular gets a lot of these, especially as a Sage.
* LightIsNotGood: Dark-side Consulars use the same powers and techniques as light-siders.
* MagicKnight: In general, Shadows in particular.
* MindOverMatter
* {{Psychokinesis}}: The basis of the Consular's offensive Force powers.
* ShockwaveStomp: Force Wave, more or less.
* SquishyWizard: The Sage advanced class.

!'''Qyzen Fess'''

A Trandoshan big-game trophy hunter, Qyzen Fess travels the galaxy hunting its most dangerous beasts to honor the memory of his father, a trophy hunter of great renown, as well as his peoples' goddess, the Scorekeeper. After being rescued from captivity by the Consular, he concludes that the Consular is the prophesied Herald of the Scorekeeper, and joins them as their first companion. Mechanically, he is the Consular's melee tank companion.

* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: He loses his Score when he is captured on Tython, and one of his companion quests involves restoring it by traveling to Tatooine to pay homage to his dead father's remains.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Though he was good friends with the Consular's master, the rest of the Jedi on Tython treated him with indifference at best and outright hostility at worst. Part of the reason he joins the Consular is because, like their master, the Consular treats him like a person instead of a beast.
* BloodKnight
* ElectronicEyes: He lost his right eye during one of his hunts, and had it replaced with a cybernetic prosthesis.
* [[GreatWhiteHunter Great Green Hunter]]
* LizardFolk
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy
* SocialDarwinist: A rather strange example. Qyzen has no respect for crime gangs and others who only prey on the weak. On the other hand, he dislikes them because they don't hunt like real hunters, not for any kind of sympathy for their targets.

!'''Tharan Cedrax'''

A male human scientist, Tharan is better known as an incorrigible charmer and would-be ladies' man than as the technological genius he actually is. Joining the Jedi Consular on Nar Shaddaa, Tharan Cedrix is the class's healer companion. Voiced by Jamie Elman.

* AttentionWhore
* CasualDangerDialog: While not the only companion known for it, he treats life-and-death combat like exercise, and isn't even phased when you fly through a thick asteroid field during some space missions. This gem is from when you're confronted with several frigate-sized space rocks:
-->'''Tharan Cedrax''': Can we go around?
* CasanovaWannabe
* CombatMedic: His primary role in the party.
* DramaQueen
* FlatEarthAtheist: He thinks that the Jedi code and the Force is nonsense, and he gets annoyed if you talk about any of them.
* GentlemanAndAScholar: Clearly regards himself as this. The opinions of others may vary.
* [[KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect Playboy Scientists Get No Respect]]
* InsufferableGenius: Can quite easily come off as this.
* ItsAllAboutMe
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite the above, Tharan does prefer nonviolent methods to ending combat, and dislikes wanton cruelty. Especially toward women.
* OmnidiscipinaryScientist: He's a medic (biology) that can create hacking devices (electronics) and can build a physics defieing machine (physics). ''Might'' be explained in that the exotech he builds and uses can also covers these fields.
* MadScientist: Sometimes, and he will get sort of disappointed if you destroy some cool but dangerous ArtifactOfDoom or WMD.
* TechnicalPacifist

!'''Holiday'''

An advanced holigraphic artificial intelligence with a feminine personality and Tharan's closest friend. She joins the Jedi Consular on Nar Shaddaa alongside Tharan. Mechanically she's only an "extra feature" of Tharan, but has a central role in his character development and prominent during conversations. Voiced by Tara Strong.

* ArtificialHuman
* ClingyJealousGirl
* CreativeSterility: For all her computational power, she never originates anything, though can improve upon someone else's work. Perhaps even one of the reasons why she's so obsessed about a man who has a new idea every waking minute.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: One of Tharan's abilities is called, Deploy Holiday. It... deploys Holiday... who proceeds to do a sexy dance and stuns the target for eight seconds. Any target: aliens, robots, eldritch horrors, and anything else you can throw her at.
* FanGirl: Tharan this. Tharan that. Tharan, Tharan, Tharan. Her days and nights revolve around him. The Consular even has a chance to call her out on it.
* GeniusDitz: Her personality in general, with computer science being the area of expertise.
* GreenEyedMonster: Cited to be a major concern during the Tharan romance arc.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy
* InterspeciesRomance
* [[spoiler:MechanicalEvolution]]
* {{Precursors}}: She's theorized to be the abandoned or forgotten computer of an ancient unknown civilization.
* ProjectedMan
* [[spoiler:RelationshipSabotage]]
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Her philosophical retort when questioned if her love is only simulated programming.
* [[spoiler:{{Yandere}}:]] She doesn't mind Tharan having one-night stands, because that's part of the playboy charm she adores about him. [[spoiler:What she doesn't accept, is Tharan in a serious long-term relationship with another woman. She actually uses electric torture to make him stop dating the Consular, and the romance ends there.]]

!'''Zenith'''

A Twi'lek freedom fighter and resistance leader on Balmorra, Zenith is an embittered survivor and guerilla fighter who has seen the ugliest parts of the undeclared war between Republic and Empire from the ground level, and joins the Jedi Consular on Balmorra. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by TroyBaker.

* BerserkButton: Betrayal is one of the few things that can bring him to a frothing rage.
* ColdSniper: Sniper rifle? Check. Hardened, cynical demeanor due to years of watching friends die and witnessing the horrors of war firsthand? Check.
* CombatPragmatist
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: He mellows out a little once he joins you, but many of his opinions are brutal, especially when it comes to Imperials.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown
* LaResistance
* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught
* TheStoic: Often speaks in reserved or curt tones, but...
** NotSoStoic: When he [[BerserkButton gets mad]], he gets '''[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge MAD]]'''
* TheUnfettered
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: Has used explosives to kill civilian collaborators, and his only regrets are that his political opponents can use it against him.

!'''Lieutenant Felix Iresso'''

A male human Republic officer, Felix Iresso is a highly decorated war hero and protector of the Republic's people, but has been blacklisted by the military for unclear reasons. He joins the Jedi Consular on Hoth, and is a romance option for female Consulars. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Dion Graham.
* [[spoiler:ArtifactOfDoom:]] He has the data of a [[spoiler:Sith Holocron]] downloaded into his head.
* BatmanGambit: He likes to have contingencies within contingencies and plan ahead for even the most unlikely scenarios.
* BattleCouple
* DontLookAtMe: Doesn't like to be stared at, and is quite vocal about it.
* HoldingBackThePhlebotinum: [[spoiler:He has more knowledge about the Dark Side than your average Sith Lord, but can't willingly access this information and isn't Force Sensitive]].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:He was captured by Imperial forces and woke up with days missing from his memory.]]
* MildlyMilitary: Believes in adherence to the chain of command, but doesn't like to do things "by the book". For example, rather than ruin someone's career with a court martial, he'd rather punish them with extreme (though temporary) hard labor.
* ReassignedtoAntarctica: Despite his exemplary service record, Felix was transferred to Hoth, ie Planet Antarctica.

!'''Nadia Grell'''

Nadia Grell is a Sarkhai, a species new to the Galactic Republic and to the galaxy in general. The daughter of a prominent Sarhkai politician, Nadia was brought to the Jedi Order to train her mysterious powers as the first known Sarkhai Jedi, and is assigned to the Jedi Consular as their Padawan. Potential love interest for male Consulars. Mechanically, she's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by Holly Fields.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: A possible outcome if the Consular follows "pure" Light Side responses and rejects Nadia's romantic advances. This course of action still does not change Nadia's overwhelming fawning or feelings for him.
* BattleCouple
* BlessedWithSuck: Nadia's Force powers are frowned upon by her native people.
* DaddysGirl: Ever so much, thanks to her being a social outcast. [[spoiler:After his untimely death, she substitutes her parental figure with the Consular.]]
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: She likes to test the limits of her abilities, but it tends to cause a lot of collateral damage.
* HeroWorshipper: Of the Consular.
** TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Advances to this level after becoming a Padawan.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Nadia and her father. Because Nadia also happens to use the most petite adult female character model in the game, it's likely the Consular will embody this with her as well.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Until she joins the Jedi and befriends the Consular.
* LetsWaitAwhile: [[spoiler:The Consular refuses Nadia's first sexual advance in the romance arc, citing that it's too soon after her father's death, and that she's doing it for "comfort sex" than true love. Nadia's comment that she fears the Consular could die at any moment, only reinforces this feeling.]]
* ParentalSubstitute
* PowerIncontinence: She has an incredible level of Force telekinesis, perhaps the strongest of her generation in the Jedi Order, but it reacts reflexively to emotion state... good and bad. Extremely happy? Force explosion. Extremely angry? Force explosion. And Nadia tends to be a very emotional girl. She comments that exploding rocks and trees are a daily norm for her.
* SoProudOfYou: To her father initially. Later she desperately seeks the Consular's constant approval.
* StrangeGirl: Her childhood.
* TeacherStudentRomance: Given the events that occur before she becomes your Padawan, this relationship can be very unsettling. [[spoiler:She hero worships the Consular for saving her life, loses her father and substitutes him as her major male role model, absolutely trusts and defers to his greater experience, feels eternally indebted for granting a life where she isn't persecuted for being different, had an attraction for him at first sight...]] the list just goes on and on.
* TheOphelia: Her childhood.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: [[spoiler:Despite the Consular's attempt at soothing her, Nadia will kill the man who killed her father. Quite violently. For all the innocent purity she displays, loss of a love one is clearly the one factor that could cause her fall to the Dark Side.]]
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl
** Not her real hair color. Evidently the Sarkhai use white dye and face paint for cultural reasons. You never see Nadia's true hair color (she even shaves her eyebrows), but her natural skin tone is Caucasian and seen when wearing a revealing outfit.

!!Smuggler
[[folder: Smuggler & Companions]]

!The Smuggler

''"It's a dangerous galaxy. Freighter captains are a dime a dozen, but when the Republic needs someone who can get the job done, they always call me. I've got the connections, the talent, and the best starship there is."''

An unaffiliated smuggler contracted to bring a shipment of weapons to the embattled Republic forces on Ord Mantell, things get off to a rocky start when the Smuggler's ship is stolen by a Separatist, starting a chain of events that take the Smuggler deep into the conflict with the Empire. The female Smuggler is voiced by KathSoucie, and the male by Maury Sterling.

* BadassNormal: Easily the least "equipped" of any of the non-jedi classes, yet remains on equal footing with the other classes
* BornLucky
* CatchPhrase: "[[NotInThisForYourRevolution I'm not one for causes but]]... *Insert X reason why he'll go along with it*".
* CombatMedic: A healing oriented scoundrel is still no slouch in the damage department
* CombatPragmatist
* DeadpanSnarker: Receives more snarky dialogue options than the other Republic classes
* {{Expy}}: Of Han Solo and [[ShadowsOfTheEmpire Dash Rendar]].
* GoodOldFisticuffs: A few abilities involve simply punching the target.
* GroinAttack: The aptly-named Dirty Kick ability.
* GunsAkimbo: Gunslingers specialize in this.
* TheGunslinger: It's one of their advanced classes
* HealingShiv: Scoundrels will shoot people with kolto.
* IntrepidMerchant
* InstantSedation: The scoundrels "tranquilizer" ability
* LoveableRogue: Clearly intended to be played as such.
* PistolWhipping: The Blaster Whip ability

* TakeCover
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn]]: [[spoiler:To Imperial Intelligence]]

!'''Corso Riggs'''

Corso Riggs is a cheerful, disarmingly optimistic mercenary soldier. Raised as a rancher's son on the rough frontier of Ord Mantell, Corso developed a mixture of naive innocence and primitive toughness, wrapped with old-fashioned chivalry.

In addition to his gung-ho enjoyment of a good,dirty fight and his encyclopedic knowledge of weapons, Corso remains a ray of sunshine in even the worst circumstances. He has no sense of his own mortality and is absolutely convinced that he's going to live forever. Corso also has a soft spot for damsels in distress, even when they clear they're no up to no good.

He's also a love interest for the female smuggler. Mechanically, he's the Smuggler's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Troy Hall.

* BattleCouple
* GoodOlBoy: Was raised as a farmer's son before seperatists killed his family. One of his battle cries is even "Yee-Haw!"
* ICallItVera: Every weapon he owns has a name. Torchy, Huwey, Flashy...
* WouldntHitAGirl: He dislikes violence against women as that was the values instilled in him by his parents. He worries that this makes him old-fashioned and patronizing.

!'''Bowdaar'''
The mighty Wookiee gladiator named Bowdaar has spent over a century facing countless opponents without ever losing a match. He solidified his title as the galaxy's greatest gladiator when he defeated notorious Wookiee-hunter Karssk on Ord Mantell. The more gullible underworld scum whisper that Bowdaar is an immortal creature who can't be killed, but those who have faced him and lived know that he is simply the best there is.

On the surface, Bowdaar may seem like a simple-minded brute, but nothing could be further from the truth. Case in point: Bowdaar eventually discovered the identity of the Trandoshans who first captured and enslaved him. One night in an arena on Loovria, Bowdaar learned that his former captors were sitting in the stands. An unfortunate "weapons malfunction" caused the drunken Trandoshan slavers to meet an untimely--and extremely messy--end.

Bowdaar is the first companion character for the Smuggler to be revealed. In actuality, he's the second companion to be acquired, on Nar Shaddaa. Mechanically, he's the Smuggler's melee tank companion.

* BloodKnight: "Facing an endless army of worthy foes under an open sky. That is my dream."
* {{Expy}}: The Smuggler's Wookiee companion. It shouldn't be too hard to guess who he's filling in for.
* FantasticRacism: Bowdaar absolutely hates Trandoshans, calling them 'filthy lizard men' and admits that he enjoyed killing them in arena fights. It is understandable, since many Trandoshans hunt Wookies for sport and skin them.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog
* IOweYouMyLife: The Chewbacca expy joins the Han Solo expy's crew, so naturally this trope comes into play, right? ''Wrong''. Bowdaar compares the Life Debt to slavery, and so can the player character.
-->'''Smuggler:''' That sounds like slavery. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous Or, worse, marriage]]. No thanks.
* {{Vibroweapon}}

!'''Risha'''

The daughter of a vicious crimelord and also heir to a planet's throne, Risha is a fundamentally good person hardened by years of seeing and enduring the ugliest parts of the galaxy. Bitingly sarcastic and often selfish, Risha nevertheless joins the Smuggler on Alderaan. Romance option for male Smugglers. Mechanically, she's the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by TaraStrong.

* BrainyBrunette
* BlueBlood
* DeadpanSnarker
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While she is one of the more pragmatic and calculating members of the crew, but she does have standards and is more than willing to defend those she cares about
* MafiaPrincess
* [[spoiler:RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething]]: Revealed towards the end of Act I.
* WrenchWench: Shows apptitude in outfitting and maintaining the smuggler's ship

!'''Akavi Spaar'''

Akaavi Spar was born into a respected Mandalorian clan and became one of its finest warriors. She killed her first foe--an abusive Abyssin mercenary--at the age of eight using an improvised flamethrower. This victory earned her the nickname "firehand" among her clan and marked the beginning of an impressive career as an Imperial bounty hunter. Akaavi captured and killed all manner of targets in her youth, from career criminals to Jedi.

When her entire clan was framed for crimes against the Empire and executed, Akaavi alone survived the brutal purge--but her outlook on the galaxy changed forever. With no connection to her Mandalorian heritage, she became a wandering mercenary loyal to no one.

Romance option for male Smugglers. Mechanically, she is the Smuggler's melee companion. Voiced by Stacy Haiduk.

* BloodKnight
* DefectorFromDecadence: Her clan used to serve the Empire loyally until they were famed and dishonored.
* DefrostingIceQueen: In a way, she becomes more approachable as you gain her loyalty. If you romance her, she even shows affection to you.
* {{Expy}}: She looks similar to Darth Maul but without the force powers.
** So much that she is a red skinned Zabrak, that fights with a staff.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: She is a Mandalorian after all... you even lose loyalty points with her if you act dishonorably.
* TokenEvilTeammate: She isn't really evil. However, out of all the smuggler's companions, she is the only one that is openly hostile to both the Republic and the Jedi, and frequently disapproves of light-sided actions.

!'''Languss "Guss" Tuno'''

A male Mon Calamari who joins the Smuggler on Hoth, Languss Tuno is a failed Jedi Padawan who abandoned the Order but still uses his limited knowledge of the Force and a stolen lightsaber to dupe the gullible while pursuing a life of leisure and hedonism. Mechanically, he is the Smuggler's healer companion. Voiced by Gary Schwartz.

* AntiHero
** ClassicalAntihero
* ButtMonkey
* CombatMedic
* SophisticatedAsHell: When he was pretending to be a Jedi Knight when you first meet him. HilarityEnsues.

!Darmas Pollaran

Inveterate gambler and unrepentant ladies' man Darmas Pollaran is an information broker operating out of Coruscant's old Galactic Market cantina. If something important is happening in the Republic capital's chaotic criminal underworld, Darmas either knows about it or can find someone who does. His network of informants and confidantes extends to Coruscant's meanest, roughest and deepest levels.

Darmas charges a high premium for his data and contacts, supplementing that sizable income with his impressive winning streak gambling at the card game known as sabacc. Although more than one poor loser has quietly accused Darmas of cheating behind his back, no one would dare make such an accusation to his face. Darmas doesn't take insults to his gentlemanliness lightly--and he has the blaster-handle notches to prove it.

[[spoiler:The man known as Darmas Pollaran is an elaborate fiction--a cover identity crafted by one of Imperial Intelligence's most successful infiltrators. Every woman romanced, every hand of sabacc played and every scrap of information gathered has all been in service to the Sith Empire. He is fiercely loyal to the brutal oppressors he so faithfully serves.]]

[[spoiler:Darmas despises everything about the Republic, but reserves special hatred for its criminal denizens. Now that his true identity is revealed, certain past calamities within the galactic underworld--like the rise and fall of the Migrant Merchants' Guild on Coruscant--must be viewed in a new light. It is almost certain Darmas had a direct hand in these events.]]

* [[spoiler:TheChessmaster]]
* InformationBroker
* [[spoiler:InspectorJavert: He seems to hate the Republic for it's corruption more than anything else]].
** [[spoiler:JerkassHasAPoint: Given the shit you can get up to as a Smuggler, he may come off as perfectly reasonable.]]
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]
* [[spoiler:UndyingLoyalty: Got to hand it to him, most Imperials aren't nearly as dedicated.]]

!Skavak

The smuggler's nemesis for the first act and {{Jerkass}} extraordinaire. He steals the smuggler's ship at the very beginning of the game and gets you in trouble with all sorts of unsavory types. He's after Nok Drayen's legendary lost riches, just like our hero.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Starting with the smuggler, though it can be inferred he/she was not the first.
* {{Determinator}}
* FacialMarkings: Has a very cool tattoo covering the right side of his face. Its origin is unknown, and is never commented on in-game.
* FoeYay: [[spoiler:A female smuggler gets the opportunity to sleep with him, just before she kills him. Very satisfying.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Like you wouldn't believe.
* SmugSnake: [[spoiler: You eventually get to wipe that smug smile off his face.]]

!!Republic Trooper
[[folder: Trooper & Companions]]

!The Trooper

''"We did not start this war. For us, there is no glory. We fight because it's our duty to defend the people and the principles of the Republic. On every world the Sith Empire strikes, we will be there, too. We will sacrifice when necessary, but we will never surrender. For hope... for freedom... FOR THE REPUBLIC!"''

A decorated sergeant in the Republic military, the Trooper is a new recruit into Havoc Squad, the pinnacle of Republic Special Forces, and deployed to the war-torn world of Ord Mantell. Subsequent events catapult the Trooper into the thick of the war - both on the physical battlefield, and politics on Coruscant. The female Trooper is voiced by JenniferHale. The male Trooper is voiced by Brian Bloom.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: You get promoted in rank as you complete more missions.
* ASpaceMarineIsYou: Although you're technically not a Marine, it's the closest you're going to get.
* BadassNormal: Unlike the unnaturally lucky Smuggler, the Trooper is very explicitly the best of the best.
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: While infiltrating [[spoiler:the Republic defectors]], the Trooper is asked if there's any truth to the rumor that a lone Republic soldier has been single-handedly demolishing their operations. The possible responses are mostly made of this trope, including one in which the Trooper gets to describe him- or herself in breathless awe as a "[[OneManArmy one (wo)man army]]".
* {{BFG}}: The Commando advanced class gets this, and it is beautiful.
* CombatMedic: Commandos get a talent tree explicitly called this.
* DeflectorShields: Vanguards. It's how they tank.
* EliteMooks: In the eyes of the enemy, you and your entire squad is an example of this.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous
* {{Expy}}: Not of any one character, but the Trooper channels all the tropes and imagery of Stormtroopers and Clone Troopers, and you can ''literally'' be a RepublicCommando.
** SpiritualLicensee: Or you can pretend to be a [[{{Halo}} SPARTAN-II]] when playing the Vanguard class. As a Commando, you're essentially the [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Heavy and Medic]] at the same time. Also a [[MassEffect Commander Shepard]] in the [[XMeetsY Star Wars Universe]], Fem!Trooper and Fem!Shepard even share a [[JenniferHale voice]]!
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: The Trooper
** TheLancer: Aric Jorgan
** TheBigGuy: M1-4X
** TheSmartGuy: Yuun
** TheChick: Elara Dorne
** TheSixthRanger: Tanno Vik
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: A dark-sided trooper can engage in this to get information from enemy [=POWs=] and uncooperative civilians.
* LightningBruiser: Tanking Vanguards.
* NewMeat: You started out as a sergeant fresh out of the academy.
* PatrioticFervor: The Light Side trooper would make CaptainAmerica proud, although he gets outshined by M1-4X later on.
* PistolWhipping: The Stock Strike ability is the rifle version, and strangely, it does more damage than a lightsaber strike.
* PoweredArmor: Standard issue for Havoc Squad.
* ShockAndAwe: Has a number of electrical attacks, too.
* SociopathicSoldier: A dark-sided trooper can commit war crimes such as killing wounded enemy soldiers that have surrendered, or abuse their position as an officer in the army to extort money and resources out of people.
* StuffBlowingUp: Gets plenty of explosive attacks.
* WithThisHerring: Upon arriving to help save a Republic world from civil war, the "elite" special forces soldier is equipped with what essentially amounts to a [[StarterEquipment T-shirt and flashlight]], while everyone else, including regular troopers on the transport he is in, are fully armed and armored. Even the ''[[RedShirt local outgunned militia]]'' is better equipped. No attempt is made to justify this in-story.

!'''Lieutenant Aric Jorgan'''

A Cathar stationed on Ord Mantell, in charge of the local loyalist forces. He starts out as the superior and MissionControl of the Republic Trooper, during the first phase of the game. [[spoiler:After Commander Harron Tavis defects to the Sith Empire with the rest of [[TheSquad Havoc Squad]], Jorgan is [[TheScapegoat scapegoated]] for the defection by Republic High Command, and demoted to Sergeant. Recognizing his loyalty and service record, he is reassigned to the now undermanned Havoc Squad, joining as]] a companion character for the Republic Trooper. Romance option for female Troopers. Mechanically, he's the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Tim Omundson.

* BaldOfAwesome: His default appearance.
* {{BFG}}: He starts out with an Assault Cannon when he first joins Havoc Squad, often having higher DPS than the player character does upon recruitment.
* CatFolk: He's a Cathar, a species with a distinctly feline cast.
* GoodLookingPrivates: Though YourMileageMayVary.
* TheLancer: Fills this role in the Trooper's squad.
* LoveInterest: for a female trooper
** BattleCouple
** InterspeciesRomance: Notably he's a cathar, a species that's currently unplayable so if you romance him its interspecies regardless what race the female Trooper is.
* MeanBoss: An efficient overseer, committed to the Republic's ideals, but pretty condescending and dismissive of the Republic Trooper when he/she first shows up. Only at first though, as the player character proves their skill while questing to save [[CivilWar Ord Mantell]] in the first part of the game.
* OnlySaneMan: Possibly excepting the player, he is this for the Trooper's Main storyline. He dislikes both JustFollowingOrders, and KnightTemplar attitudes. In every other situation, he likes dutiful and respectful remarks, and dislikes bravado and greed.
* ScaryBlackMan: Alien, but his dark skin and fur qualifies him anyway.
* SergeantRock: See his above summary.

!'''Elara Dorne'''

A former Imperial soldier who defected to the Republic over moral differences, Elara Dorne is a combat medic serving on Taris where she is recruited by the Trooper to fill the same job in the reformed squad. Romance option for male Troopers. Mechanically, she is the class's healer companion. Voiced by Moira Quirk.

* TheAtoner: She hasn't committed any atrocities herself, but desperately wants to prove to everyone her loyalty to the Republic despite her background as an Imperial.
* BadassBookworm: She is not only a skilled CombatMedic, but also an expert in both [[HelloAttorney Republic legal terminology]] and [[HotScientist medical science]].
* BeleagueredBureaucrat: After she joined Havoc squad, she is in charge of taking care of all their paperwork. [[spoiler:If you romance her, she use this to her advantage and force everyone to leave the ship and fill out their paperwork. Allowing you two to have the entire ship to yourselves.]]
* BritishAccents: Speaks in a heavy Imperial accent. General Garza describe it as 'pure Dromund Kaas'.
* [[ByTheBookCop By The Book NCO]]: She generally approves when you follow rules and regulations to the letter and do things the proper way by obeying orders. However, there are moments in which she [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness encourages you to disobey ethically questionable orders]] [[spoiler: or even to commit what is a few steps away from war crimes, such as when she encourage you to kill a surrendered Imperial officer (her former CO and a war criminal) instead of releasing him.]]
* TheChick: Excluding a female Trooper, she's the only female member of Havoc Squad, a healer, and is generally concerned with making the right choices.
* CombatMedic: Her specialty.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Formerly an Imperial trooper that defected to the Republic for moral reasons.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Her personality in general and romance in particular.
** Appropriately one of her combat abilities involves [[HumanPopsicle encasing a foe in carbonite]].
* GoodLookingPrivates: Tall, smooth-skinned, and blonde.
* ImmigrantPatriotism: Extremely loyal to the Republic and what it stands for despite being from a bloodline of Imperials with a strong military tradition.
* LadyOfWar: Comes across as this. The British accent helps.
* LoveInterest: for a male trooper.
** BattleCouple
** UnequalPairing: Depending on if you promote her to be your XO or not, you are still her commanding officer that outrank her her by either one or two pay grades. This is evident in that even if you romance her, she will still call you 'sir' in private conversations. [[spoiler:She managed to bypass the regulations against relationships between enlisted personnel and officers by filling out all the correct paperwork. Allowing the two of you to go official with your relationship.]]
* ShoutOut: If we know BioWare's love of GeorgeRRMartin and ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', the name might well be a shout-out to Princess Elia of Dorne.
** Her name is probably more likely a word play of Elora Danan, an important character in the 80's film George Lucas wrote: Willow.

!'''M1-4X'''

A prototype assault droid, possibly the most advanced in the Republic military, M1-4X is programmed to be the ideal soldier and specifically designed to be a part of Havoc Squad. The Trooper recruits him/it on Nar Shaddaa. Mechanically, he is the Trooper's ranged tank companion. Voiced by TomKane.

* [[spoiler:ApologeticAttacker: As he was programmed to be incredibly patriotic, he hates being forced to attack the player, to the point he actually gives the player advice on how to destroy him!]]
* TheBigGuy: Your first tank ''and'' one of the biggest companions in the game.
* LargeHam: He is ''programmed'' to be an overly enthusiastic, patriotic soldier.
* OverrideCommand: Though he hates it when forced to do things against his will.
* PatrioticFervor: He manages to outdo the Light-side trooper, an incredible patriot in his own right.
* [[AmericanRobot Republic Robot]]


!'''Tanno Vik'''

A Weequay demolitions expert born on Nar Shaadaa. Formerly serving the Republic military, Tanno Vik was faced with criminal accusations throughout his short career, until he was finally convicted for masterminding a protection racket while defending a Republic outpost on Talay. After his discharge, Vik resorted to mercenary work, and still plies his abilities in the galaxy’s deadliest conflict areas to this day. Mechanically, he is the Trooper's melee tank companion. Voiced by David Anthony Pizzuto.

* AffablyEvil: As far as his biography has told, Tanno is charming, but amoral, and much more interested in achieving his own goals first.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His biography mentions that he impressed his instructors with his ability to quickly find structural weaknesses in buildings and vehicles.
* HotBlooded: He's been called belligerent and rebellious in his biography, to the point where his disregard for authority is what prevented the Republic Special Forces from recruiting him.
* TokenEvilTeammate: His isn't really evil per say, but Vik is the only member of the new squad that isn't loyal to or even interested in the ideals of the Republic, [[PunchClockHero he is only in the army to benefit from the protection against the criminals that are after him]]. [[spoiler:And his personal quest involves him trying to persuade you to abuse your position as a republic officer to run a criminal racketeering gang with him.]]

!'''Sergeant Yuun'''

A male Gand Findsman and Republic soldier, Yuun is a highly capable technician in the military and shamanistic tracker among his people, though some find his insectoid appearance disturbing. He joins the Trooper's squad on Hoth, and is the class's melee damage companion.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''General Garza'''

A Republic general noted for her strict nature and almost trigger-happy stance on the war, Garza was among the co-founders of the Republic Special Forces (i.e. the Trooper) division. Voiced by Kate Weiman.

* GoodIsNotNice
* IronLady
* KnightTemplar: She faces frequent accusations of ordering covert assaults on Imperial holdings throughout the galaxy. [[spoiler: She's also willing to order the execution of innocent people on the slightest chance they might have been converted into cyborg {{Manchurian Agent}}s.]]
* MilitaryMaverick: In theory, she's beholden to the senate. This doesn't stop her from lying her ass off to them.
-->'''Trooper''': Did you just... Lie to a senator?\\
'''Garza''': [[BlatantLies Of course not.]] You've only just told me about [[spoiler: Tavus's Defection]].
* NecessarilyEvil: Most of the time when Garza orders you to perform a dark-sided option, this is usually her justification
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Despite her reputation and how she occasionally orders you to commit morally questionable actions, she comes across as one since she understands the hardship that you are your man are going though and doesn't give you anything more then a harsh lecture even when you disobey said questionable orders.
* TheRival: A major political rival to the Supreme Chancellor.
* RetiredBadass: She used to be the commander of Havoc Squad before she was given a desk job.
* ShadowArchetype: To Keeper in the Imperial Agent's storyline

!Harron Tavus
The commander of Havoc Squad when the Trooper arrives on Ord Mantell, Tavus is a distinguished war hero and considered one of the best soldiers in the Republic. [[spoiler:At the end of Ord Mantell, he and the rest of Havoc Squad defect to the Empire and leave the Trooper for dead. The rest of Chapter I consists of hunting him and the other squadmates down.]]

* BadassMustache
* [[spoiler:BigBad: For Chapter I]]
* [[spoiler:DefectorFromDecadence]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]]

!'''Jonas Balkar'''

A talented field operative for the Republic's Strategic Information Service, Jonas Balkar has led an impressive career despite his young age, earning him undercover placements on high-risk worlds such as Nar Shaddaa and Balmorra. His exceptional planning and investigatory skills have led to numerous Republic successes, both seen and unseen.

Personnel records also make particular note of Balkar's charming demeanor, encouraging his assignment to operations where personal interactions are key--particularly interactions with female subjects.

He supports the Republic Trooper through out the whole story, serving as the main SIS contact of the character.

* CouldSayItBut: He's not above using this method to let information slip to the Trooper when he's not supposed to, such as in Jorgan's personal mission "Missing In Action":
-->'''Jonas:''' I've got major players breathing down my neck. Otherwise I'd tell you to investigate that prison the Imperials set up in Shadow Town.
* ShipTease: Female Troopers can flirt with him quite a bit, much to Jorgan's dismay.


!'''General Rakton'''

One of the Empire's greatest strategist and most successful field commander that has a reputation of never being defeated in any of his military campaigns. He was the mastermind behind the development of the Gauntlet super weapon. After its destruction, he led the Empire's campaign in capturing the Bastion on Corellia and hopes to use all intelligence stored in it's databanks to defeat the Republic ones and for all.

* AntiVillain: A mix of [[SlidingScaleOfAntivillains Type I and III]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Even as a high ranking commander, Rakton is still a good soldier and excellent fighter.
* EvilBrit
* EvilGenius: He designed the Gauntlet super weapon and plans to defeat the Republic by analyzing all the intelligence stored in the Bastion's databanks and come up with an unbeatable strategy.
* HannibalLecture: Delivers one to the trooper about how the Empire is a superior civilization when you confront him
* NobleDemon: His codex entry states that soldiers under his command are strictly prohibited from harming civilians in occupied areas. And the Gauntlet super weapon is specifically designed to only be used against military targets and avoid collateral damage on large populations
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Inverted. He tries (unsuccessfully) to talk you into surrendering.
* PatrioticFervor: He is a fanatic Imperial patriot that passionately believes in the Empire's ideals and thinks that he is fighting a war of enlightenment to bring law and order to the corrupt and inferior Republic.
* ShadowArchetype: To a light-sided trooper.

!!Sith Warrior
[[folder: Sith Warrior & Companions]]

!'''The Sith Warrior'''

''"Korriban... the birthplace of my power. I arrived as a Sith Acolyte, trained in the Dark Side, and now an apprentice to a Sith Lord. My rage has purpose. I will hunt the Jedi... and destroy the Galactic Republic."''

A scion of a distinguished Sith bloodline, the Sith Warrior's prominent lineage and powerful command of the Force lead to an early appointment to the Sith Academy on Korriban and an unusually accelerated training schedule. Becoming an apprentice to the powerful Darth Baras, the Sith Warrior soon becomes a power to be reckoned with in their own right. The male Sith Warrior is voiced by Mark Bazeley, the female's voice actress is Natasha Little.

* BlackKnight
* BloodKnight: Prone to this outlook, even when played relatively light-side.
* TheBrute: How other characters, especially rival Sith, tend to regard the Sith Warrior.
* DeadpanSnarker: Can become quite the wisecracker, should you desire.
* TheDragon: Is effectively this to Darth Baras. [[spoiler:After Baras betrays you, the Warrior becomes this to the Emperor.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: If you so choose, which is more than likely.
* DualWielding: A specialty of the Marauder advanced class.
* {{Expy}}: Of Darth Vader. Progress in a certain path and you'll be a full out DarthVaderClone.
** There is also a [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101026214637/swtor/images/4/42/Juggernaut-screenshot01.jpg red armor]] that can make The Sith Warrior look similar [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Darth Malak]]
** The Marauder Advanced Class is more like Asajj Ventress; as with Vader, you can easily make a near-clone of the original. Also Dark Side Starkiller.
* FiveManBand: The Warrior and their companions:
** TheHero: The Sith Warrior (for a given value of 'hero')
** TheLancer: Jaesa Wilsaam
** TheBigGuy: Lieutenant Pierce
** TheSmartGuy: Malavai Quinn
** TheChick: Vette
** TheSixthRanger: Broonmark
* GeniusBruiser: Again, if you so choose.
* HiddenDepths: Vette often comments that a light-side Sith Warrior is not what you'd expect him to be.
* HonorBeforeReason: Some options paint the warrior this way, only seeking strong enemies in a sense of honor, slightly leans to the light side.
* MagicKnight: Black Magic Knight, to be precise.
* MakeMeWannaShout
* ManipulativeBastard: There are opportunities to be this, especially when it comes to Jaesa.
* LadyOfWar: A female Sith Warrior, especially a light-side one, tends to come across as this.
* NobleDemon: The light-side Sith Warrior.
* TalkingYourWayOut: Yes, even this textbook example of a Blood Knight is capable of using this method.
* UnstoppableRage: More-or-less the Sith Warrior's normal state of behavior.
* YouHaveFailedMe: You'd better believe this comes up as an option now and then.


!'''Vette'''

A Twi'lek female, Vette was separated from her her family at an early age and sold as a slave to series of minor crime lords. When Nok Drayen, a legendary pirate utterly destroyed her latest owners' holdings, Drayen gave Vette and the other slaves a choice of freedom or joining up with Nok; Vette agreed to become a pirate, traveling the known worlds and learning to get in and out of places she wasn't allowed.

Years later, after Drayen suddenly released all of his people from service, Vette was left on Nar Shaddaa, where she joined up with other young, idealistic Twi'leks, and used her criminal abilities to rob and ruin those who exploited Ryloth's cultural artifacts and people. An unquenchable spark, Vette is older than her years but far from mature, delighting in silly pranks and always ready to laugh at people who think too much of themselves.

Vette is a companion of the Sith Warrior, and a potential love interest for male characters. Mechanically, she is the Sith Warrior's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Catherine Taber.

* AMatchMadeInStockholm: Romance option.
* BattleCouple
* BornIntoSlavery: She escaped, adventured and was enslaved again. [[ItGotWorse This time by Sith.]]

* HappinessInSlavery: Depending on the player: she becomes Type 1, Type 2, or even a combination of both.
* InterspeciesRomance: Usually and most commonly, since the player can't create a twi'lek sith warrior unless they've already reached level 50 with a twi'lek character on that server.
* PlotArmor: The Sith Warrior can casually kill a number of [=NPCs=] for behavior far less disrespectful than Vette's repeat dialogue. No explanation is ever given why the Sith Warrior would be remotely inclined to spare her for it, even when the warrior's other victims would be far more useful than Vette.
* PluckyGirl
* ShockCollar [[spoiler: If you marry her, you discover she kept it after you took it off, and apparently has [[CasualKink "ideas"]] for it's use..]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Averted. She tries to pretend it doesn't hurt, just to spite whoever's pushing the button, but the tortured face and wavering voice tells otherwise.
* VideoGameCaringPotential[=/=]VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Remove her shock collar when she first asks, or keep shocking her for every minor offense? Your call.
* [[spoiler: YouAreTooLate: She manages to track down her mother, but sadly her mother had died a few days before you arrive]].

!'''Malavai Quinn'''

A human male Imperial Operative recruited on Balmorra. Potential love interest for female Sith Warriors. Mechanically, he's the Sith Warrior's healer companion. Voiced by Richard Teverson.

* AlwaysOnDuty
* [[spoiler: TheAtoner: For being Baras' mole.]]
* BadassBookworm
* BattleCouple
* CaptainSmoothAndSergeantRough: Quinn as the Captain and Pierce as the Sergeant. They don't get along.
* HeroAntagonist: If he were an opponent, he would be this.
* InsufferableGenius: Subverted. He talks about his qualifications a lot, but it's always in the most polite, matter-of-fact way you can imagine.
* [[spoiler: KarmaHoudini]]: Many players lament this.
* TheMedic: Not reflected in his personality at all, but this is his gameplay niche.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: He's not a bad guy by any means, but he's a devoted Imperial patriot.
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:For Baras. He doesn't like it but does it anyway]]
* OfficerAndAGentleman: Comes across as this.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: The reason why Quinn, despite being a clearly talented officer, is initially languishing on Balmorra. He disobeyed the direct orders of the incompetent Moff Broysc at the Battle of Druckenwell, turning what would have been a crushing defeat into a victory. For this he was court-martialed and it was only through Darth Baras intervention he wasn't dismissed altogether.
* TheStoic
* UnequalPairing: His romance definitely has shades of this. As a non-Force-sensitive human, he's the Sith Warrior's social inferior in every way, and some of the dialogue embraces it.
** In one of his love letters, it was reveled that based on a study by the Imperial military, it shows that Sith and non-Sith relationships rarely turn out well. With the Sith partners 210% more likely to commit adultery, and non-Force users have a 32% increased mortality rate after marrying a Sith. But he is completely willing to accept the risk since he loves you so much.

!'''Jaesa Wilsaam'''

A female human fallen Jedi Padawan [[spoiler:with the unique ability to sense an individual's true nature and pierce any deception]], acquired after Alderaan. Notably, there are two distinct ways to recruit Jaesa Wilsaam, and the Sith Warrior's choice of how determines whether she is a renegade from the Jedi Order but still an adherent of the light side, or a true dark side Sith. Mechanically, she is the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by RachaelLeighCook.

* DefectorFromDecadence: If Light, disgusted with the hypocrisy of the Jedi Order and in particular, her old Master.
* EvilFeelsGood: If Dark.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: If you reject her.
* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: The Sith Warrior is offered several opportunities in the romance arc to belittle Jaesa and she's either aroused or takes it in total stride. [[spoiler:She fantasizes about being dominated, told what to do, and treated violently after the marriage (and even before it).]]
* MyBiologicalClockIsTicking: At the end of the romance arc [[spoiler:she literally offers her womb as incentive for getting married, and promises to give you as many babies as you can fill her with.]]
* OrgasmicCombat: She makes comments indicating this.
* [[spoiler:PregnantBadass]]: What she wants to be at the end of the romance arc.
* TeacherStudentRomance
* TheTease: Her entire romance arc is based on emotional lust without [[spoiler:immediate]] physical gratification.
* UnequalPairing: Jaesa makes a demand to be an equal as your wife, but the Sith Warrior can deny her that right and still force her to marry him. She's disappointed if that's the case, but content to at least have you. Either way, Jaesa only calls you husband in private: in public she calls you, "My Lord" or "Master."
* WomenPreferStrongMen
* WorthyOpponent: Becomes one for the Republic if Light.
* {{Yandere}}: In one of her love letters to you, Jaesa admits that she planted a tracking device on you to see if you are cheating on her. It turns out that you have been loyal, and she express her disappointment that she will not get to hunt down and kill your mistresses.

!'''Lieutenant Pierce'''

A male human Imperial Trooper, Pierce joined the Imperial military out of a lust for action rather than patriotism. Reckless and anti-authoritarian, Pierce has served in the Empire's special operations division and is recruited by the Sith Warrior on Taris. Romance option for female Sith Warriors. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Adam Leadbeater.

* BloodKnight
* CaptainSmoothAndSergeantRough: Quinn as the Captain and Pierce as the Sergeant.
* DoAnythingSoldier
* FriendsWithBenefits: His romance with a female Warrior. Both parties seem purely in it for the sex.
* MilitaryMaverick: His default personality and the central reason why he and Quinn don't get along.
* TheSpartanWay: Imperial Special Forces.

!'''Broonmark'''

A Talz (big, furry, four-eyed alien with a distinct resemblance to a yeti) warrior who joins the Sith Warrior on Hoth. Mechanically, he's the Sith Warrior's melee tank companion.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Darth Baras'''

The Sith Warrior's master. A surprisingly unambitious and impressively rational Sith Lord, Baras was an ambassador to Alderaan during the peace talks at the close of the war. He ''hates'' Jedi, viewing them as hateful hypocrites that betrayed their own beliefs. He was instrumental in the Treaty of Coruscant, according to his biography. Voiced by Jim [=McCance=].

* AffablyEvil
* BadBoss: He isn't averse to killing minions, though he usually reserves it for when he feels there is no alternative and tries to make sure that his men die with dignity. On his [[NotSoStoic bad days]], he's much, ''much'' worse.
* [[spoiler: BaldOfEvil]]

* TheFaceless: Though his mask is removed during his final scene in the storyline.
* LargeAndInCharge
* ManipulativeBastard: He tried to use Dar'Nala's own machinations to sway Satele over to the Dark Side, but didn't succeed.
* NotSoStoic: He's normally rather composed and polite, though being a Sith Lord, [[UnstoppableRage he gets really scary when he's pissed off]], which can lead to [[FunnyMoment This gem]] during the end of the prologue.
-->'''Sith Warrior:'''I feel your anger, Master.\\
'''Darth Baras:''' A Blind, Deaf, Comatose, Lobotomy Patient could feel my anger!\\
'''Vette:''' Okay, I'm officially scared.
* ProperlyParanoid: It depends. [[spoiler: If you play the Sith Warrior as a treacherous apprentice waiting to stab him in the back, then his decision to betray you is sensible. Of course, he still betrays you even if you're loyal.]]
* TheSpymaster
* [[spoiler:TheUsurper: His ultimate plan is to take over the Empire by posing as the Voice of the Emperor.]]
* ThickerThanWater: Despite their backstabbing ways, [[spoiler:Darth Ekkage and Darth Baras truly appear to actually love each other. His first act as a Dark Council member is to free Ekkage, and she out outright states that her loyalty is first and foremost to her brother: not the Emperor or the Empire. The Hands claim her death greatly enraged Baras.]]
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]]: [[spoiler:Suffers a really nasty one, changing from confident mastermind to screaming lunatic.]]

!'''Darth Vowrawn'''

Darth Vowrawn is a charming and sophisticated elder statesman who has served on the Dark Council for decades--no small feat in the Empire, where the tenure of new council members is often measured in weeks. His passionate, almost hedonistic pursuit of challenge is well known among his peers, who have learned never to underestimate his cutthroat enthusiasm. Vowrawn revels in the game of conquest and Sith power plays, driven to euphoria by all the rich details of his favorite sport. Many upstart Sith have attempted to best Vowrawn over the years through a variety of strategies, from complex schemes to bluntly direct surprise attacks. Although some scored temporary victories, Vowrawn's talent for adjusting his strategy on the fly has left him the final victor in all these confrontations.

[[spoiler: He is the main antagonist to Baras during the third act. As such, he becomes your ally to access the Dark Council.]]

* AffablyEvil: Oh, so much. He is polite, charming and funny. He is also a Dark Lord of the Sith.
* BadBoss: Averted, HARD. He is probably the only Dark Council member to actually show any type of care for his soldiers and bodyguards. So much, that the first thing he says when you meet him is to spare them. [[spoiler: Because he thought you were still working for Baras and was sent to assassinate him]].
* BewaretheSillyOnes: He is a Dark Lord of the Sith. Hundreds of years old. And is a Dark Council member for just as much time. He might be funny and charming, but if he kept himself alive in a ChronicBackstabbingDisorder society like the Sith, and even achieved so much power, he is hardly someone to not beware.
* DeadpanSnarker:
--> [[spoiler:'''Darth Baras:''' Your champion is failing, Vowrawn. And you'll be next.\\
'''Darth Vowrawn:''' Is that coming from your or the Emperor, Baras? Is hard to tell the difference.\\

!!Sith Inquisitor
[[folder: Sith Inquisitor & Companions]]

!'''The Sith Inquisitor'''

''"The true power of the dark side... it is claimed by many, yet known by few. My potential promises so much more. I know that treachery can break even the mightiest foe. And, for those who study its secrets, the Force offers... unlimited power..."''

An Imperial slave discovered to be strong in the Force, the Sith Inquisitor is sent to Korriban to become a Sith or die trying, and subsequently delves into the darker mysteries of the Force. The female Sith Inquisitor is voiced by Xanthe Elbrick, and the male by Euan Morton.

* AdventurerArchaeologist: The Inquisitor spends a lot of tomb raiding or otherwise searching for Sith relics.
* AMatchMadeInStockholm: Romance option.
* AgonyBeam: Force lightning can be used in conversation.
* TheApprentice: The Inquisitor's storyline starts with him/her competing to become this to the Sith Lord Zash. "Apprentice" is even a title awarded to you once you manage it.
* [[spoiler:AwesomeMomentOfCrowning]]: [[spoiler:At the end of the Inquisitor's Class Quest, s/he is made a member of the Dark Council by the other members, who gives them a Darth name based on their Light/Dark Side rating (Darth Nox if Dark Side, Darth Occulus if neutral and Darth Imperius if Light Sided).]]
* BlackMage: The Sorcerer, if specced into the Lightning or Madness trees.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The light-side Inquisitor is seen as such by just about everyone s/he meets. Imperials, Republic forces and independents alike are consistently taken aback by her/his unexpected level-headedness, tendency to honor promises and occasional displays of genuine compassion, and most of them obviously think s/he's more than a little bit weird compared to other Sith they've met in that regard.
* ChainLightning: One of the Inquisitor's abilities.
* ChronicBackStabbingDisorder: Can engage in this should you so choose. It's the Sith way, after all.
* CombatMedic: Sorcerers speccing as healers do not give up their electrical attacks.
* ComedicSociopathy: [Shock him] is a valid Dark Side dialogue option.
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:How the final battle against Darth Thanaton ends. The Inquisitor withstands the Yamato Cannon of Sith Lightning, one-handedly deflects lesser blasts, stops Thanaton's lightsaber attack in mid-strike, slams him into a wall, uses telekinesis to force him to kneel in abject humiliation, and then beats him an inch away from death off camera. The other Dark Council members visibly react to this awesome display of power in silent awe.]]
* TheDarkArts: A master of the more mystical aspects of the dark side.
* DarkIsNotEvil: It's certainly possible to play a light-side Sith Inquisitor.
* DeadpanSnarker: Gets a ''lot'' of opportunities to act like this.
* DoubleWeapon: Assassins specialize in a double-bladed lightsaber.
* EvilSorcerer: Naturally, especially the actual dark-side Inquisitors.
* {{Expy}}: The Sorcerer advanced class channels Palpatine and Count Dooku, while the Assassin is based on Darth Maul.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: The Inquisitor

** TheChick: Ashara Zavros. [[spoiler:Lord Zash usurps the role when she's in possession of Khem Val.]]
** TheSixthRanger: Xalek.
* HealingShiv: Magical variant - Sorcerers can use the Dark Side of the Force to heal and aid allies.
* {{Invisibility}}: Assassins learn this trick.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Which is good, because the Inquisitor interacts with them a lot.
* LifeDrain: One of the Inquisitor's abilities.
* LightningCanDoAnything: The entire darkside Sorcerer is built around using lighting for all of life's challenges, from healing, to boss fights, to minor annoyances.
* MadeASlave: The class's backstory. Some [=NPCs=] will frequently remind the Inquisitor of this.
* MagicKnight: How the Assassin advanced class works.
* {{Necromancer}}: Has shades of this after learning how to Force-walk. [[spoiler:It allows the Inquisitor to bind ghosts to him, willingly or not, and feed upon their power.]]
* RunningGag: The conversation choice of "[[ComedicSociopathy Shock him.]]"
* ShockAndAwe: Specializes in all sorts of ways to use Force lightning.
* ShockwaveStomp: Overload, more or less.
* SquishyWizard: The Sorcerer advanced class.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: There is no problem, in or out of combat, that cannot be solved with a liberal application of Force lightning (sensing a theme yet?).

!'''Khem Val'''

The Sith Inquisitor's [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dashade Dashade]] manservant.

* BloodKnight: Has ''extremely'' fond memories of conquering Yn and Chabosh with his former master, Tulak Hord. He generally approves of any action that will lead to violence, especially against strong and dangerous foes.
* DontYouDarePityMe
* HappinessInSlavery: His time with Tulak Hord.
* HumanPopsicle: He was placed in stasis by Tulak Hord until the Inquisitor awakened him.
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: He agrees to serve the Sith Inquisitor after s/he defeats him in combat. For now, anyway...
* ImAHumanitarian: He's rumored to have devoured over a thousand Jedi in his lifetime. Dashade live for a ''long'' time, especially when cryogenic preservation is involved.
** HorrorHunger: Khem's hunger is never sated. He lives for feeding off of Force-users and, from some of his location comments, ordinary people as well.
* MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers: Of a sort with [[spoiler: Lord Zash. Towards the end of his character missions, the Inquisitor takes part in a ritual that ultimately decides which consciousness takes sole control of Khem's body.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Khem Val is thousands of years old.
** One might think it's because he's been in a type of stasis field for centuries, [[spoiler:but his kind don't die of old age]].
* SharingABody: With [[spoiler:Lord Zash]] of all people!
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A in a very weird and non-romantic way. Don't get the wrong idea "Little Sith"... it's not that he likes you or anything, you're just a powerful Lord he can serve.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Tulak Hord, his long dead former Master.
** At the end of his character missions, [[spoiler: He acknowledges you as the heir to Tulak Hord's legacy, and dedicates himself to serve you willingly, not just because you beat him.]]

!'''Andronikos Revel'''

A human ex-pirate, attempting to hunt down the members of his mutinous former crew, and recruited on Tatooine. Potential love interest for female Sith Inquisitors. Mechanically, he's the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by SteveBlum.

* AcePilot
* BadassNormal
* BattleCouple
* DangerousDeserter: He used to be a Captain in the Republic Army until he chose to desert and turned to a life of piracy.
* FireForgedFriends: Obviously with the Inquisitor, but there's distinct offscreen bonding with Ashara. Judging from her offhand remarks, he's taken something of a big brother role.
* GangstaStyle: with GunsAkimbo, either both sideways or cross-armed.
* GunsAkimbo
* TheGunslinger
* GutturalGrowler
* ICallItVera: Averted. He prefers not to name weapons, to avoid becoming too attached.
* TheMutiny: He was jettisoned in an escape pod after a smuggled Sith relic began to erode his crew's sanity. The Inquisitor finds him in the process of systematically tracking down and murdering said crew.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: While he started out with the Republic military, he has no personal stake in the war, nor any loyalty to either faction.
* RebelRelaxation: His standard pose aboard your ship.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: What you find him in the middle of doing.
* ScaryBlackMan
* SpacePirates: His former career, as Captain and pilot of the ''Sky Princess''. Mostly a Type 1, but his standard emotes include an "Aye aye, Captain."
* TattooedCrook: Sports a rather large tattoo on his face.

!'''Ashara Zavros'''

A Togruta Jedi Padawan whom the Sith Inquisitor encounters on Taris, manipulates into falling from the Jedi Order, then guilts into joining the Inquisitor's band. Ashara is the token light-sider in the group and remains a dedicated adherent of Jedi principles despite her new company... initially, later embracing Sith principles while still adhering to a vision of hope and peace. Romance option for male Sith Inquisitors. Mechanically, she's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by Azura Skye.

* ActionGirl: She's a fallen Jedi who dual-wields lightsabers.
* TheApprentice: Becomes one of two to the Inquisitor.
* BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil: Her general philosophy.
* BattleCouple
* DualWielding: Dual-wielding lightsabers is her style of choice.
* EvilFeelsGood: Not so much evil as emotion in general, which the Jedi teach is extremely dangerous, but Ashara finds she enjoys indulging her passions and emotions.
* {{Expy}}: Basically a fallen, teenaged Ahsoka Tano.
* FaceHeelTurn: Far more subtle and nuanced than usual for Star Wars, Ashara does fall from Jedi ways and embrace the core principles of the Sith as time goes on, but in a way that makes her a poster child for the light-side Sith concept.
** Ashara's fall makes her pragmatic and open to sacrificing innocent people for her personal (and sometimes selfish) interpretation of the greater good. She won't kill a room full of innocent children just for evil laughs; however she would kill a room full of innocent children if their deaths would ensure a lasting peace between the Empire and Republic. Ashara will commit and support atrocities if the sins actually lead to something tangible and worthwhile for galactic society.
* FireForgedFriends: Obviously with the Inquisitor, but it's strongly emphasised there's an offscreen friendship with Andronikos. He teaches her how to pilot the ship and even helps her choose presents to give to the Inquistor.
** It's completely averted with [[spoiler:Zash]], who comments that Ashara is cautious and untrusting when the two are working together.
* FishOutOfWater: She's horribly out of place in the Inquisitor's retinue and service to the Empire in general.
* HeelRealization: It takes her a while, but she does eventually realize she's become a Sith at heart.
* IDontWantToDie: For all her talk about the Jedi ideals, Ashara greatly fears death. There are two occasions in the story when she believes death is imminent ([[spoiler: the Inquisitor using Lightning torture and her ghost ancestor taking revenge]]), and in both instances she pleads to live, offering anything and everything she has if someone spares or saves her.
* OnlySaneMan: Considering the company she keeps? Yes.
* StockholmSyndrome: Not quite as overt as Vette, but Ashara joins under violent circumstances, possibly including electrical and paranormal torture... not to mention blackmail and brainwashing. She eventually idolizes or become infatuated with her captor.
* TheChick: The only one of the Inquisitor's companions who cares much for how people feel.
** She's also the only chick physically in the group. [[spoiler: Emphasis on physically.]]
* TheRival: Averted. Despite the Inquisitor having two apprentices, there doesn't seem to be any rivalry for his approval or philosophical disputes between them. They appear to simply ignore each other... although while idle on the Inquisitor's ship, Xalek seems to stalk in the passageway of the engine room where Ashara is.
* TeacherStudentRomance
* TheIngenue: [[spoiler:She's been raised by ultra-conservative Jedi since a baby. She's never been in a romantic relationship before, and is emotionally awkward when the Inquisitor pursues her. Her first time, with the Sith Inquisitor of course, practically seals her eternal loyalty to him.]]
* ThePhilosopher: She enjoys examining religious and philosophical dogma, and providing her own two cents on them. A major reason why she falls in love with the Sith Inquisitor, is because he is the first master to actually respect her views and not treat them as blasphemous or ignorant. She eventually spends considerable time comparing and combining the core teachings of Jedi and Sith.
* ThePollyanna: A true Jedi and fervent believer in their code while surrounded by one of the more unpleasant group of companions in the game. Even after she falls, she remains an eternal optimist.
* TokenGoodTeammate: You better believe it. Even after she becomes Sith, she's by far the most light-sided member of the retinue.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She wants to end the war between the Empire and Republic, and believes this can be achieved by creating mutual acceptance between the Jedi and Sith. She is also quite willing to be complicit in war crimes if she is convinced that this will advance the cause somehow. Revan would be proud.

!'''Talos Drellik'''

A human male of the Imperial Reclaimation Service, the Empire's military branch that focuses on acquisition of long forgotten technologies, ancient artifacts, and Force history. A somewhat eccentric, though highly knowledgable and renowned archaeologist, Talos Drellik joins the Sith Inquisitor on Hoth. While lacking Force sensitivity, he has a tremendous passion for Sith history and information. He seeks knowledge for the simple sake of uncovering knowledge, and tends to brush off the notion that some things are just too evil or dangerous to learn about. Mechanically, he is the class's healer companion. Voiced by Edward Hibbard.

* AbsentMindedProfessor
* AdventurerArchaeologist
* AffablyEvil: He's actually less threatening than Ashara for the most part. His major overt sin is seeking out knowledge, no matter the costs.
* BadassBookworm
* ItBelongsInAMuseum
* TempleOfDoom: He explores Sith tombs for a living.

!'''Xalek'''

A male Kaleesh Sith Acolyte, and the Sith Inquisitor's Apprentice who joins on Korriban late in the story. Mechanically, he is the Inquisitor's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Tony Armatrading.

* TheApprentice: The Inquisitor's Sith Apprentice.
* TheQuietOne: Several characters, including the Inquistor, remark that he rarely says anything unless prompted for a response.
** BewareTheQuietOnes: When you get your first look at him, [[spoiler: Harkun]] tells you that he was left alone with two of the other apprentice candidates and killed them both in cold blood.
* TheRival: Averted. Despite the Inquisitor having two apprentices, there doesn't seem to any rivalry for his approval or philosophical disputes between them. They appear to simply ignore each other... although while idle on the Inquisitor's ship, Xalek seems to stalk in the passageway of the engine room where Ashara is.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Lord Zash'''

A human Sith Lord who is trying to unlock the secrets of Tulak Hord's ancient artifacts. She takes the Inquisitor on as her apprentice. Voiced by Jen Cohn.

* AffablyEvil
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She acts all nice, motherly, and understanding... [[spoiler:but will backstab and kill you while still being nice, motherly, and understanding.]]
* BlondesAreEvil
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Not unusual for a Force-user and she believes firmly heeding the visions they show.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: She comes across as this. Most of the other Sith on Korriban will deride the slave-born (possibly alien) Inquisitor. However Zash seems to care for none of this, seeking only the most accomplished Acolyte for her apprentice. [[spoiler: Though she later admits that the real reason she asked for force-sensitive slaves train in the first place was due to a dream she had, showing that only the Inquisitor would be able to aid her in her research.]]
* {{Foil}}: To your first instructor, Harkun, who is a complete Jerkass.
* KlingonPromotion: [[spoiler: The Inquisitor's first task as Zash's apprentice is to murder her immediate superior, Darth Skotia. After his death, she manages to talk ''his'' superior into giving her the now vacant Darth title, the relic she was trying to obtain... and his larger office.]]
* [[spoiler: MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers]]: Of a sort with [[spoiler: Khem Val. Towards the end of Khem's character missions, the Inquisitor takes part in a ritual that ultimately decides which consciousness takes sole control of his body.]]
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan]]: Her ultimate and final fate.
* SharingABody: With [[spoiler: Khem Val]], but not intentionally. [[spoiler: She wanted the Inquisitor.]]

!'''Lord Kallig'''

A Force Ghost (or sith equivalent) of an ancient, all-but-forgotten Sith Lord. He occasionally offers the Inquisitor advice.

* EqualOpportunityEvil: It's remarked that Kallig advocated support for non-humans. Might have even been one.
* [[spoiler: FollowInMyFootsteps]]
* GenreSavvy: The standard Sith response to a problem is to [[WeHaveReserves throw people at it until it goes away]]. Kallig explicitly exploited this tendency when he [[spoiler: woke the spirits of the Dark Temple, knowing that sooner or later the Inquisitor would be among those sent to investigate.]]
* [[spoiler: ItRunsInTheFamily]]
* [[spoiler: LegacyCharacter]]: [[spoiler:The Inquisitor eventually becomes the new Lord Kallig.]]
* [[spoiler: LukeIAmYourFather]]: [[spoiler: Or rather, "Inquisitor, I am your distantly related ancestor. I expect you to restore our family to glory."]]
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Wears a full face covering mask.
* MissingMom: Whomever was his wife (or wives) were. Small details about Kallig are hidden here and there, but absolutely nothing on who mothered his children or her fate.
* ParentalNeglect: He points out he could have been better with his own children and probably saved the lineage a lot of trouble.
* ParentalSubstitute: Because your goals are in perfect alignment, [[spoiler: and you're last of his bloodline]], he's honestly protective and has your well-being in mind.
* [[spoiler: SinsOfOurFathers]]: He grudgingly admits screwing everything up with his death, and in a strange yet very Sith way, his helpful activities are like an apology.
* SpiritAdvisor
* [[spoiler: WellDoneSonGuy]]: Averted.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Once you've captured the [[spoiler:Sith Force Ghosts]] on Dromund Kaas, Kallig is dropped entirely from the plot. Granted he remarks about needing to conserve his power during the last appearance in Chapter 2, but you never are given the choice to absorb him or check back on the tomb. Furthermore, he doesn't make an appearance after you [[spoiler:earn a seat on the Dark Council]]: something he'd certainly have been proud of.
* WorthyOpponent: Tulak Hord considered him one.


!'''Darth Thanaton (formerly Teneb Kel)'''

A Sith Lord who fought in the Great Galactic War. As an apprentice, he learned the ways of the Sith under Lord Calypho and was frequently accompanied by a male Abyssin slave named Maggot. After the arrest of Lord Calypho, Kel was sent on a mission by the Dark Council to hunt down the Emperor's traitorous apprentice, Exal Kressh. After the success of his mission, Kel returned to the Dark Council and demanded to be granted the title of Dark Lord and be renamed Darth Thanaton.

* CutscenePowerToTheMax: [[spoiler:Flying]] with Sith Lightning.
* HiddenDepths: For all his obvious faults, there was more to Thanaton than was openly revealed during the story. If you remained respectful to him during the various conversations (and showed respect for the ideal Sith Code), he would show begrudging respect towards you, even indicating he regretted the mutual conflict. Before and after his death, several Sith would comment Thanaton was even admirable.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Disparages the Inquisitor's background as a slave on a few occasions, despite having been one himself before becoming an apprentice. More egregious is his fleeing of the Kaggath arena on Corellia, a violation of the vaunted Sith tradition he so vocally supports. Fleeing the battle is forfeiting, forfeiting is defeat, defeat is death. And then on Korriban he claims that the Kaggath is a sacred rite. Really? Sacred? Then do your duty, protect Sith tradition by killing yourself.
* {{Jerkass}}
* SmugSnake
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]]: [[spoiler:After he gets his ass kicked he is reduced to begging for mercy from his compatriots after treating other Sith like dirt.]]
* [[spoiler:ThisCannotBe]]: [[spoiler:His final words are essentially this.]]

* AntiVillain: It can be argued that a light-side Agent is too nice to qualify for being a WellIntentionedExtremist.
* BadassLongcoat: Agents in promotional trailers are often depicted wearing one; players can obtain one as early as the Black Talon flashpoint, and since it's moddable they can keep it useful for ages.
* BadassNormal: The class was inspired by the question of what kind of non-force user could be considered to be equal in the Imperial hierarchy to the Sith player characters. Later on, the Agent is indeed capable of taking on Jedi and Sith Lords.
* [[spoiler: Brainwashing:]] [[spoiler: Becomes half of the plot of Chapter 2. Interestingly enough, you're still allowed to choose different responses to your triggered commands even though the Agent will always say the same thing regardless, reflecting that the Agent still has their mind.]]
* TheCasanova: Male Agents can become one.
* CoolShades: Cyborg agents can make it part of their standard appearance..
* CombatMedic: Operatives can specialize in healing.
* CombatPragmatist: It shouldn't come as a surprise for a class that sneaks up behind people and stabs them or shoots them in the head before they can fight back, but in the cutscenes when fighting powerful Jedi the Agent usually has to use a trick or two to get the upperhand.
* TheDragon: Can become one to [[spoiler:Darth Jadus]].
* EvilBrit: Depends on how Evil you play the Agent though.
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CompositeCharacter: Of Grand Moff Tarkin and JamesBond.
** Or a non-force sensitive [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Mara Jade]].
* FakeDefector: The Agent's mission for Chapter 2, where they pretend to be a defector following the events of Chapter 1 in order to get close to the new head of SIS.
* FiveManBand: The Agent and their companions:
** TheHero: The Imperial Agent (for a given value of 'hero')
** TheLancer: Ensign Temple
** TheBigGuy: Kaliyo Djannis
** TheSmartGuy: Doctor Lokin
** TheChick: Vector Hyllus
** TheSixthRanger: Scorpio
* GlassCannon: The Sniper specialization.
* InstantSedation: The sleep dart ability does this.
* InstantSeduction: A favorite tool of the male Agent, with varying degrees of success. He is a secret agent after all! Female agents can get in on the action as well.
* KillSat: A high level ability allows the Agent to use one against enemies.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: An option at times.
* [[spoiler: ManchurianAgent:]] [[spoiler: The Agent still has their mind, but they must do whatever the person who uses the codeword "onomatophobia" commands.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: You are encouraged to be one.
* MindScrew: Let's just say there's a certain scene in ACT II after [[spoiler:the IA's brainwashing]] starts to break your mind. It might break yours as well.
** DisneyAcidSequence: A pretty concise summary of the scene in question.
* TheMole: For the SIS.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: You can be lightside, but you can't defect to the Republic. [[spoiler: In one of the light sided endings, you can work as a double agent for the Republic to reform the Empire from within.]]
* PreMortemOneLiner: Before shooting a stumbling Jedi Master Berin Fraal into a pit of hazardous chemicals, the Agent gives off a pithy "Watch you step, Jedi."
* ReallyGetsAround: The Agent has the most one night stand options of all the classes.
* SecretPolice: When you are operating inside the Empire's boarders, your missions are to ensure stability of the imperial government by fighting internal dissidents and terrorists.
* ShootTheDog: Is often ordered to take morally questionable actions to defend the Empire. Light side options usually involve subverting this.
* TakeCover
* TalkingYourWayOut: There are many situations where The Agent is outnumbered and outgunned, but the proper conversation option can turn the odds back in The Agent's favor, making some fights a lot easier, or allowing you to skip fighting entirely.
* TooDumbToLive: One of the more amusing ways to play the Agent, and there are a surprising number of dialogue options to support it. By way of example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LghZc1dM8A&list=UU36qgbpsux8r2UUQEOBej4w&index=3&feature=plcp a scene on Hutta involves the Agent meeting an informant who tells him/her to walk away quietly so as not to attract attention.]]
-->'''Imperial Agent:''' Oh, I understand -- you work for Keeper, too!\\
'''Informant:''' ...you're an idiot.
* [[spoiler:{{Unperson}}]]: [[spoiler:In the ending, Keeper gives the Agent the chance to erase his/her identity via the Black Codex in order to serve the Empire without the need to answer to anyone.]]
* TheVamp: Female Agents can become one.
* WideEyedIdealist: One of the ways the class can be roleplayed. [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids Keeper disapproves]].
** BloodKnight: Hilariously, [[PragmaticVillainy Keeper also objects]] if the player goes in the ''opposite'' direction, as well.
* WorthyOpponent: Possibly to [[spoiler:Darth Jadus]].
** Definitely to Hunter. The Agent can return the feeling once they beat him.
* XMeetsY: While the other classes are more or less [[{{Expy}} Expys]] of different Star Wars Characters, the closest movie character to the Agent would be Grand Moff Tarkin... mixed with JamesBond.
** Or in the words of the developers, a mix of Grand Moff Tarkin and [[SplinterCell Sam Fisher]].
* YouAreNumberSix: Upon being officially inducted into the ranks of Imperial Intelligence, the Agent receives a codename: Cipher 9.
** When infiltrating the SIS, the Agent is given the codename "Legate".

!'''Kaliyo Djannis'''

A female Rattataki and companion to the Imperial Agent, Kaliyo is an anarchistic freelance criminal, known to associate with three individuals named Anspi'shel, Nohn Veyaiko, and The Wheezer. Potential love interest for male Imperial Agents. Mechanically, she's the class's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Tasia Valenza.

* BaldOfEvil
* BattleCouple
* BrosBeforeHoes: Actually it should go, Chicks Before Dicks. Some of the interactions with a female Agent can lean this way during conversations.
* [[spoiler:The Cameo]]: [[spoiler: Appears in Doc's Companion Quest if you're a Jedi Knight.]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Most of the people that you and her go after are those that she's screwed over at some point and are now looking for revenge.
* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler:If she's there for the final confrontation with Jadus, Kaliyo will decide to just shoot him in the middle of his speech. Unfortunately, Jadus simply teleports out of the way and Force Chokes her.]]
* ConsummateLiar: Never take anything she says at face value.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even she finds Jadus disgusting and monstrous.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[MassEffect2 Jack]], more or less.
* GlacierWaif: Has been retooled into a tanking companion.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* MeaningfulName: She's [[ConsummateLiar two-faced]], and her name is Djannis. It's not ''spelled'' [[GreekMythology Janus]], but it's pronounced the same way.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Being an anarchist, she's only associating with Imperial Intelligence because Keeper offered her a small fortune. If you get her approval high enough, she decides to stick around because you're fun.
* RebelRelaxation: Her pose aboard the ship.
* TheVamp

!'''Vector Hyllus'''

A male human Imperial diplomat who was assimilated by a Killik hive as a Joiner and subsequently recruited by the Imperial Agent on Alderaan. Holds the position of Dawn Herald, an advanced scout and diplomat of the Killik and thus granted greater autonomy and individuality than most Joiners. Love interest for female Imperial Agents. Mechanically, he's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by Ifran Meredith.

* BlackEyesOfEvil: He's not evil however, just [[BlueAndOrangeMorality different]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Subverted. The Kilik hive follows this trope, but Vector, despite his claims, consistently approves of Light Side actions and disapproves of Dark Side Actions.
* FantasticRacism: Is often the target of this.
* HiveMind: However, he's more loyal to the Empire than the Killik.
* SimpleStaff
* VerbalTic: Refers to himself in the plural, using We instead of I. Also tends to speak a [[AcCENTUponTHEwrongSyLLAble little disjointedly]], much like, but not exactly like, the [[HalfLife G-Man]]. It's enough to add to his bizarreness, but not enough to really distract.

!'''Doctor Eckhard Lokin'''

A male human biochemist formerly affiliated with Imperial Intelligence, Dr. Lokin's agenda and past are a mystery to most. By far his most remarkable - and disturbing - development is his ability to shapeshift between human and rakghoul form. The Imperial Agent recruits him on Taris. In his human form he is a healer companion, while in his rakghoul form he focuses on melee damage. Voiced by Anthony Cochrane.

* CombatMedic: When in human form.
* CoolOldGuy
* GuileHero
* INeedToGoIronMyDog: He excuses himself because of the cold when Ensign Temple questions him about knowing her father. [[SubvertedTrope Then again, it is]] [[IceWorld Hoth]]. [[DoubleSubverted Then again, again, he uses this to excuse himself to go]] ''[[DoubleSubverted outside]]''.
* NobleDemon: Despite acting like an uncaring intelligence agent, he consistantly approves of Lightside actions and disaproves of pointless cruelty.
* NoodleIncident: Lokin is basically "NoodleIncident: The Character," with almost every conversation being littered with crypic references to his storied career in Imperial Intellegence.
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: It makes sense that Lokin might have some vague knowledge of the other Imperial characters' interesting backgrounds, but he knows more than just that. He was an old buddy of Keeper before the man took on that role. Knows of the circumstances of Temple's father issues. And he's even closely connected to Vector and his "condition," with them both being targeted by Lokin's scientific rivals, the rivals actually having manipulated Vector's situation to make him a Joiner. You can point out this oddness about Vector to Lokin, but it will only peeve him off.
* ProfessorGuineaPig
* VoluntaryShapeshifting

!'''Ensign Raina Temple'''

Raina Temple is an enigma: a human raised among Chiss and a member of the Chiss military. [[spoiler:She is actually the Force-sensitive daughter of Imperial Intelligence agents who sent her to be raised by the Chiss when she was discovered to be Force-sensitive rather than have her be taken by the Sith.]] She is recruited on Hoth. Romance option for male Imperial Agents. Mechanically, she is the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Georgia Van Cuylenberg.

* CulturedBadass: A big fan of Sith opera
* GunsAkimbo
* [[spoiler:JediMindTrick]]: [[spoiler:She is capable of performing this to a certain degree, though due to her lack of actual Force training it's about all she can do.]]
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: She mostly supports Light Side decisions except when they involve opposing the Empire and/or the Sith.
* UnequalPairing: Male agents can romance her despite being her superior. She even continues to call you "Sir" after being married.
* WideEyedIdealist: She is in many ways a victim to the Imperial policies of [[spoiler:forcing all force sensitive children to be taken from their families and be trained in the Sith Academy]], but she is still very patriotic and loyal to both the Sith and the Empire


!'''SCORPIO'''

A female-looking assassin droid and a companion character for the Imperial Agent. "Recruited" by the Imperial Agent on Belsavis, not that she likes it at all. Mechanically, she's the Agent's melee tank companion. Voiced by Deborah Unger.

* ArtificialIntelligence: For a droid, goes without saying. But SCORPIO is rather unique in that she was designed to eventually achieve this from the beginning, rather than appearing to be a side function requiring a restraining bolt like most other droids.
* CatchPhrase: Did you know that SCORPIO was designed for "heuristic self-improvement?" No? Good, because she'll keep telling you.
* CreepyMonotone
** YMMV, of course. She's somewhere on the scale near [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS's]] creepy/sexy monotone.
* DefeatEqualsFriendship: If you define 'friendship' as programming that won't allow you to purposefully harm someone.
* {{Fembot}}
* HartmanHips: For a robot, SCORPIO is very... curvy. The male Agent can even comment on it.
* MechanicalEvolution: SCORPIO was designed with "heuristic self-improvement" and to "iterate on functionality." Her conversations also lead to her upgrading herself to better deal with the wider galaxy beyond Belsavis.
* SimpleStaff
* TheStarscream: She freely admits that she plans on killing you slowly and painfully if she were to get the chance.
** She does come around, though, if you decide to help her out with her whole "heuristic self-improvement" thing. She decides it would be more interesting and rewarding for her to stick around, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick perhaps observe your offspring]].
* {{Tsundere}}: ...sort of. It's rather hard to describe. She'll casually talk about killing you, but responds very well to complements and gifts with what appear to be sincere thankfulness and appreciation. She is just largely unconcerned with you, treating you with equally neutral disdain and politeness, until you reach full affection and her last conversation, wherein she has come to respect you.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Keeper/[[spoiler:Minister of Intelligence]]'''

The head of Imperial Intelligence. A ruthless and pragmatic man who is only known by his codename. He has managed to maintain his position for over a decade, a difficult accomplishment considering [[BadBoss his employers]]. Voiced by Francis Guinan.

* AntiVillain: Type I. He's not a particularly nice man by any means, but he cares for his agents as individuals, and his disapproval of Light Side agents comes from the fact that he thinks they're [[WideEyedIdealist naive and going to be broken]]. [[spoiler:Just before the finale he expresses regret for the things hes done in service to the Sith, and states he never lost sight of his goal to make the Empire a better place.]]
* BaldOfEvil
* EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep: His real name is classified, so he is referred to by his code name, "Keeper". [[spoiler:Upon his promotion he becomes known simply as the Minister of Intelligence.]]
* EvilBrit: Although whether he is truly evil is up for debate, he is still on the "bad" side.
* HypercompetentSidekick: A lot of Imperial Intelligence's work involves cleaning up the messes made by some of the more reckless Sith. While Keeper is not particularly fond of the Sith, he is at least careful enough to try and avoid getting on their bad side.
* NobleDemon: He tends to avoid doing evil things unless directly forced into it by the Sith. His ruthless reputation seems to be the image hes cultivated for himself to survive in his position.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:After Chapter 1, he gets promoted to Minister of Intelligence and his duties are taken over by the former Watcher Two.]]
** TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:In Chapter 3, things have gotten dire enough that he starts to intervene again.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: A fairly practical man who dislikes senseless acts of villainy. Also, he only disapproves of the Agent trying to be an idealist because he doesn't want the Agent to be traumatized by the line of work.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He takes the threats that come up seriously, and has Intellegence follow up on all the intel the Agent brings in. He also provides the Agent with all the support personel and equipment s/he needs, including the Agent's CoolShip. Compared to the Sith he answers to, he's practically a BenevolentBoss. [[spoiler:He does authorize your brainwashing, but if you call him out on this, he points out that the only alternative that the Dark Council would have accepted was your execution.]] He also shows some basic concern for the Agent's well-being, even asking Jadus to leave when they are around (not that Jadus bothers to listen to him).[[spoiler: After Imperial Intelligence is disbanded by the Sith in Chapter 3 he calls in every favor he has to secretly rebuild it just to give The Agent a shot at taking down The Star Cabal and save the Empire that just discarded him.]] In the ending, [[spoiler:he offers to use the Black Codex to allow the Agent to protect the Empire in their own way.]]
* ShroudedInMyth: Little is known about him other than his appearance.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: Chastises the Agent for trying to be an idealist in this line of work, telling them that it's for their own good. [[spoiler:However, one of the reasons he encourages the Agent to take his offer to use the Black Codex is so that s/he is free to practice their idealism on their own terms.]]
* TheSpymaster

!'''Watcher Two'''

A data analyst of Imperial Intelligence. She is the product of an Imperial eugenics program designed to create the ultimate data analyst. She serves as mission control for the Agent. A minor romance option for male Agents. Voiced by Mary Stockley.

* DefrostingIceQueen
* DesignerBabies: She is a product of the Empire's eugenics program.
* FantasticRacism: Seems to be uncomfortable about aliens. Especially Kaliyo. Then again, she has no problems with the Agent.
* [[spoiler:ReasonableAuthorityFigure]]: [[spoiler:After being made Keeper.]]
* UnequalPairing: [[spoiler:Subverted. She dumps you after she gets promoted to prevent the problems that would arise from this.]]
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection

!'''Darth Jadus'''

[[quoteright:186:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Darth-Jadus-001_6526.png]]

A member of the Dark Council and head of the Imperial Intelligence network, controlling it through various liaisons, Darth Jadus sired Zhorrid, a daughter who would become his only known apprentice. A prominent yet enigmatic figure among the Sith, Darth Jadus was known for showing more self-restraint than his fellow Lords, rarely succumbing to the passions and emotions that powered the dark side of the Force. He is suddenly assassinated at the end of the Agent's prologue and the Agent is promoted to Cipher to avenge him. Voiced by Stephen Rashbrook.

* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler:Zhorrid is little more than a disposable pawn to him. If you kill her on his behalf, he admits that he can't use the Force to tell if she's dead because doing so would require that he have an emotional attachment to her. In other words, he felt nothing for her.]]
** Also, according to Zhorrid, as a young girl he had her attend intense singing lessons. When she gave a public performance she sang until her throat was damaged and she could no longer sing anymore. She then saw her father smile and soon after was made his apprentice.
* AGodAmI: Acts like he's some sort of higher being than everyone else.
* [[spoiler:ClimaxBoss]]
* CoolMask
* DifferentAsNightAndDay: While Jadus is emotionless and calculating, his daughter Darth Zhorrid is a FauxAffablyEvil CloudCuckooLander.
* EnigmaticMinion: Nobody knows much about him, not even his Sith colleagues. In fact, he was uninterested in concerning himself with the squabbles and power struggles so common among his people, instead focusing his influence on the Imperial Intelligence network. Couple that with his tendency to contract outsiders who had earned their own reputations for intelligence missions rather than other Sith, and he's inadvertently fostered a sense of unease and distrust among his peers.
* EvilBrit
* [[spoiler:FakingTheDead]]
* KilledOffForReal: Supposedly dies from a terrorist attack. His daughter replaces him as a member of the Dark Council.
* KneelBeforeZod: Orders the Agent to kneel before him. Defiance comes with a dose of Force Lightning.
* [[spoiler:TheManBehindTheMan]]: [[spoiler:To the Eagle.]]
* [[spoiler:OffingTheOffspring]]: [[spoiler:If the Agent sides with him, the Agent is ordered to kill Zhorrid so Jadus can reclaim his seat on the Dark Council.]]
* TheSpymaster
* TheStoic: He never shows a single sign of emotion.
* [[spoiler:TalkingTheMonsterToDeath]]: [[spoiler:The Agent can convince him that his plan is doomed for failure, upon which [[KnowWhenToFoldEm he'll willingly give up on his own terms]] and states that he now both [[WorthyOpponent despises and respects you.]]]]
* {{Ubermensch}}: "Herald of a new era." [[spoiler:This new era is one in which all Imperial citizens are united through terror.]]
* [[spoiler:XanatosGambit: Jadus pulls one off on the Agent at the climax of Chapter 1. Jadus has half the codes to his super weapon, and the Agent has the other half. If the Agent refuses to enter his codes, the weapons will fire randomly and kill millions. If the Agent enters his codes to disarm the weapon, Jadus will then have the codes and simply kill the Agent and reactivate the weapon. Either way, Jadus wins, unless the Agent can figure out how to TakeAThirdOption.]]

!'''The Eagle'''

An anti-Imperial terrorist who was considered to be of little consequence by Imperial Intelligence until his organization destroyed the flag ship of Darth Jadus, killing the Dark Councilor and over 3,000 people who were on board the ship. The Agent's first task upon being made a Cipher Agent is to destroy his organization. Voiced by Simon Templeman.

* BigBad: Of the Agent's Chapter I.
* [[spoiler:DefectorFromDecadence]]: [[spoiler:He used to be an Imperial figher pilot, until the loss of his comrades during the war made him grow to hate the Empire.]]
* EvilBrit
* InTheHood: His costume for his public broadcasts is the same type of hood that sneaky enemy types wear.
* [[spoiler:TakingYouWithMe]]: [[spoiler:He uses a detonator to blow himself up after being defeated. The Agent is unharmed, but is knocked out for a few hours.]]
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn]]: [[spoiler:To Darth Jadus]]

!'''Ardun Kothe'''

A 54 year old human spymaster [[spoiler:and former Jedi]] for the Strategic Information Service, the Republic's counterpart to Imperial Intelligence. He specializes in converting enemy agents into friends and creating subversion and rebellion. Much of his past is unknown, as is how he came to lead an SIS unit. The Republic believes he is the key to winning the war, and Imperial Intelligence dispatches the Agent to ensure they aren't right.

* ApologeticAttacker: He apologizes to the the Agent for his actions and even states he hopes he'll be held accountable some day.
* TheAtoner: Someday. For now he has a war to win. [[spoiler:If you let him go, then he decides to become one anyway.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: Kothe sees his actions as this.
* NoPlaceForMeThere: Even though he believes he's incapable of living up the standards of the [[spoiler:Jedi Order]], he still fights for it.
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn: To the Star Cabal. If he ever got his hands on the Shadow Arsenal, Ardun would end up starting the war he's trying to prevent. The Agent is free to point out the glaring flaw in his plan - and is apparently the first one to do so.[[hottip:*:The Empire's Sith rulers already consider Imperials (and each other) expendable. The mere threat of citybusters over Dromund Kaas and Korriban won't impress them, and certainly won't be a deterrent to war. But if Ardun responds to his bluff being called by actually using the Shadow Arsenal, it will whip the Sith into a killing frenzy. Either way, the Star Cabal wins.]]]]
* VillainHasAPoint: The Empire really is evil and must be stopped. [[spoiler:After the climax of Act I, his argument has quite a bit of weight.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He seem to view himself as this. [[spoiler: but he is judging himself by the rigid standards of the Jedi Order.]] Compared to some of the people the Agent meets he's really not that bad.
* WorthyOpponent: Imperial Intelligence views him as this, which is why they sent The Agent after him in the first place. [[spoiler:If you tell him that you've been waiting to fight him, he admits that he feels the same way.]]

!'''Hunter'''

The codename of a member of Ardun Kothe's SIS cell. Hunter is a ruthless agent who has a bizarre hatred for Cipher Nine.

* [[spoiler:TheDragon]]: [[spoiler:He's the enforcer of the Star Cabal.]]
** [[spoiler:DragonInChief]]: [[spoiler:He's the only member of the Star Cabal that the Agent gets to interact with for an extended period of time.]]
** [[spoiler:DragonTheirFeet]]: [[spoiler:You fight him after you've killed or arranged the arrests of most of the Star Cabal's inner circle.]]
* [[spoiler:FinalBoss]]: Of the Agent's class quest.
* FoeYay: Some of his taunting of the Agent borders on flirting. [[spoiler:Male Agents get the chance to call her out on it and can even kiss her.]]
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:The Star Cabal denied her the chance to develop her own identity. "Hunter" was what resulted when she tried.]]
* [[spoiler:GracefulLoser]]
* HandsomeLech
* {{Jerkass}}
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:Is actually the enforcer of the Star Cabal.]]
* [[spoiler:SamusIsAGirl]]
* TheSociopath
* TokenEvilTeammate: To Kothe. Not only is he by far the most ruthless member, [[spoiler:unlike the rest of the cell, he has no qualms about brainwashing the Agent.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Tykebomb}}]]
* WorthyOpponent: Sees the Agent as this.

!'''Watcher X'''

A product of an Imperial eugenics program. The individual codenamed Watcher X was a member of Imperial Intelligence until he was deemed unstable and sent to the Empire's Shadow Town prison on Nar Shadaa. He is ordered to help the Agent with their business on Nar Shadaa. Voiced by Nicholas Boulton.

* BookEnds: [[spoiler:If you choose to prevent his escape, he begins your final confrontation by saying aloud your analysis of the situation. He did the same thing when you first met him.]]
* ChekhovsBoomerang: [[spoiler:Watcher X himself, but also the implant he gives The Agent toward the end of the Nar Shaddaa mission becomes very important again in Chapter 2.]]
* CreepyMonotone
* DesignerBabies: He, along with Watcher Two, were the result of the Empire's eugenics program.
* EvilBrit
* EvilCounterpart: To Watcher Two, as they are both graduates of the same eugenics program and serve as the Agent's MissionControl
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:If the Agent asks if anyone else has ever recieved conditioning similar to Watcher X's before, he'll cryptically say yes then change the subject. This becomes important in Chapter 2.]]
* GoneHorriblyRight: The Empire wanted to genetically engineer the perfect Watcher who could see connections and predict outcomes no one else could. It worked just a bit too well resulting in a paranoid sociopath.
* {{Jerkass}}
* ProperlyParanoid: [[spoiler:Everything he says about Imperial Intelligence techniques for controlling their own agents and how agents always end up like him turns out to be true.]]
* [[spoiler:SpiritAdvisor]]
* TheStoic
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: On Nar Shadaa.

!'''Darth Zhorrid'''

The daughter of Darth Jadus, Zhorrid is insane even by the standards of the Sith. She succeeds her father as a Dark Councillor after his sudden assassination.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The only reasons she's on the Dark Council is because the other Councilors believed that she knew Jadus' secrets. When it becomes apparent that she doesn't, she loses all of her political clout. Even Keeper, who makes a habit of not judging the Sith, is not afraid to call her insane.
* TheCaligula
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: A dark version of this trope.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Though it's clear that their relationship is strained at best.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Apparently thinks of the Agent as her friend, or at least her [[TheDragon Dragon]].
* GlasgowGrin
* WeHaveReserves: She sends her bodyguards to kill the Agent upon their first meeting as a test of the Agent's strength.

!!Bounty Hunter
[[folder: Bounty Hunter & Companions]]

!'''The Bounty Hunter'''

''"The only law in this galaxy is the one a man makes for himself. The Sith may say otherwise, but even the Empire's reach has limits. That's why they hire bounty hunters. If you've earned a death mark, we'll be seeing each other... real soon. Don't let it go to your head, though. To me, you're just another job."''

A freelance gun for hire who attracted the attention of a legendary retired bounty hunter named Braden, the Bounty Hunter's story begins with gaining entry into the Great Hunt, a deadly competition of the galaxy's greatest bounty hunters organized by the Mandalorians, then entering the competition. The male Bounty Hunter is voiced by Tom Spackman. The female Bounty Hunter is voiced by GreyDelisle.

* BadassNormal: No Force sensitivity here, just moxie and a lot of equipment.
* BountyHunter: Of course.
* BringItBackAlive: Occasionally asked to bring in the target alive if possible, via carbonite freeze ray.
* ConsummateProfessional: The neutral Bounty Hunter.
* ContinuityNod: On Hutta, you get the chance to [[CountingToThree slowly count to three]] before blasting a Rodian giving you attitude. Just like [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Calo Nord's]] EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Most characters are skeptical of the Bounty Hunter's skill early on, but this disappears as the Bounty Hunter builds a reputation.
* {{Expy}}: The Powertech is Boba Fett, while the Mercenary is Jango Fett.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: The Bounty Hunter
** TheLancer: Torian Cadera
** TheSmartGuy: Gault Rennow
** TheBigGuy: Skadge
** TheChick: Mako
** TagalongKid[=/=]TeamPet: Blizz
* GlorySeeker: The Bounty Hunter's core motivation.
* GunsAkimbo: The Mercenary advanced class grants this.
* GutturalGrowler: If male.
* HarmlessFreezing: On Dromund Kaas, the Bounty Hunter received a carbonite freeze ray to take marks alive.
* HitmanWithAHeart: The light-side Bounty Hunter.
* TheHunterBecomesTheHunted: The Bounty Hunter has to draw out their target on Nar Shaddaa, a feared assassin, by making the target come after the Bounty Hunter.
* ItsPersonal: [[spoiler:Janarus earns himself a spot on the Bounty Hunter's shit list after decrying him/her publicly.]]
* KillItWithFire: Has a flamethrower. Powertechs in particular gain a wide range of flame-based attacks.
* LightningBruiser: Powertechs. Heavy armor, shields, and can use their jetpack to rocket into combat.
* NoFameNoWealthNoService: The Bounty Hunter's reception by the nobles on Alderaan.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Can certainly be played like this.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Light-side options often emphasize a sense of honor, and the Bounty Hunter can join the Mandalorians.
* PsychoForHire: The dark-side Bounty Hunter.
* PunchClockVillain: Depending on player choices, the Bounty Hunter can repeatedly affirm that their relationship with the Empire is strictly business.
* {{Shoryuken}}: And rocket-powered, no less.
* StuffBlowingUp: Explosives of all kinds, but mostly rockets, are a staple of the class.
* YoungGun: Can come across as this on Hutta and Dromund Kaas, but the Bounty Hunter comes across as an experienced professional afterwards.

!'''Mako'''
The first chronological companion character for the Bounty Hunter, Mako is a human female hired by Braden to provide intel and tech for those participating in the Great Hunt. Romance option for male Bounty Hunters. Mechanically, she's the Bounty Hunter's healer companion. Voiced by Lacey Chabert.

* ArtEvolution: Her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1a8mlxCaRAI earlier appearance]] in a story preview, compared to how she [[http://darthhater.com/media/gallery/developer-dispatch-companions-dissection-/image/12143/#main_leaderboard currently]] looks.
* BattleCouple: Romance option.
* BountyHunter: Seems to regard herself as such by Tatooine.
* TheChick: In comparison to the Bounty Hunter's other companions, Mako is by far the most concerned with being a good person in an often murky career, and generally approves of light-side actions.
* ConsummateProfessional: Her take on bounty hunting, overlapping with HitmanWithAHeart. Mako strives to be an honorable and professional bounty hunter, sparing those who turn out to be innocent or when the contractor lies.
* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend: She'll say this about her childhood friend Anuli on Nar Shadaa if the Bounty Hunter keeps teasing her about him.
* HollywoodCyborg: Has a suite of cybernetic enhancements, notably a Holonet uplink in her brain.
* TheMedic: Sort of. She's the Bounty Hunter's healer companion, but her medical skills have no bearing on the plot.
* TheSmartGuy: Girl in this case.
* StreetUrchin: Grew up on the streets of Nar Shaddaa.
* SwordAndGun: Her weapons are a pistol and a vibroknife, though she doesn't use them simultaneously.
* TeenGenius: It's not clear if she's actually a teenager, but she's certainly young and an expert with technology. Braden calls her a little genius in her introduction.
* WontTakeYesForAnAnswer: Immediately grant her request to be a companion, and she'll continue pleading her case for a good few seconds.
* WrenchWench: In charge of the Bounty Hunter's technical support
* YoungGun: More relaxed than usual for this trope, but her introduction cutscene makes it pretty clear Mako wants to prove herself a capable bounty hunter as well.

!'''Gault Rennow'''

A Devaronian companion acquired on Tatooine, Gault is a professional smuggler, con artist, and general scoundrel. [[spoiler:Real name is Tyresius Lokai, a target of the Great Hunt. He fakes his own death and joins the Bounty Hunter rather than continue to live the life of a hunted man.]] Mechanically, he's the Bounty Hunter's ranged damage companion. Voiced by DaranNorris.

* TheBarnum
* BreakTheHaughty: How he ends up on Tatooine and eventually in the Bounty Hunter's retinue.
* ButThouMust: [[spoiler: There is no way to dispose him for real, you will end up RecruitingTheCriminal and FakingTheDead with him.]]
* CombatPragmatist: Disdains notions of rules or a fair fight. HonorBeforeReason is a really quick way to annoy him.
* ConMan: And good enough at it, among other things, to have earned a sizable price on his head. His personal quest involves helping him con some water farmers.
* CrazyPrepared: Escapes the [[TheBaroness Lady of Pain's]] {{Mooks}} because [[spoiler:one of his horns actually is a grenade.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: As per LoveableRogue tradition, he does like his snarking.
-->'''Bounty Hunter''': Jedi are all talk.\\

* BattleCouple: Potentially with the female Bounty Hunter.

* KillItWithFire: Almost all of his abilities involve his flamethrower.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Oh, yes.

!'''Blizz'''

A Jawa companion of the Bounty Hunter class, recruited on Hoth. Mechanically, he's the Bounty Hunter's ranged tank companion.

* CuriousAsAMonkey: Yes.
* GadgeteerGenius: He's a Jawa, and lives up to their reputation as experts with technology.
-->'''Bounty hunter PC:''' I've never met a jawa who couldn't turn tech to scrap in ten seconds flat.\\

He has the symbol of the Black Sun on his armor. Mechanically, he's the Bounty Hunter's melee tank companion. Voiced by Neil Kaplan.

* PsychoForHire: Yes.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Braden'''

Braden's long and storied career has never quite reached the heights of notoriety it deserved. For more than twenty-five years, Braden has claimed hundreds of bounties for clients ranging from the infamous crime lord Nok Drayen to generals in the Republic military and Jedi Masters with no one else to turn to. With his glory days behind him and his career in decline, Braden is looking for one last chance to shine before passing the torch to a new generation of hunters and retiring in some quiet corner of the galaxy.

He is your first supporting character and is trying to get the Bounty Hunter into the Great Hunt. [[spoiler: He's killed by Tarro Blood right after you defeat your first target.]]

* CoolOldGuy: He is a retired Bounty Hunter that also took into his care Mako, and now, the Bounty Hunter.
* ParentalSubstitute: To Mako.

!'''Tarro Blood'''

The son of Alderaanian nobility, Tarro Blood renounced his privileged existence as the heir to a minor lordship in favor of pursuing greater glory and fame as a galaxy-renowned Mandalorian mercenary. Leaving his past behind and taking on a new dramatic moniker, Blood was able to prove that he was no pretender after years of training under a famed Mandalorian champion. Under the guidance of this exceptional tutor, Blood became a feared warrior and the favorite to claim victory in the next Great Hunt. Unfortunately, Tarro Blood's characteristic arrogance and sudden rise to prominence rubbed his competition the wrong way. The other Mandalorians in the competition made it their mission to ensure that he never came close to claiming victory. The resulting defeat nearly cost Blood his life, in addition to his pride, and he has remained away from the public eye for nearly a decade.

He is the main antagonist for the Bounty Hunter in Act 1.

Voiced by FredTatasciore

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Yup. From the start he keeps telling you how unworthy you are to the Great Hunt.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: He is a Mandalorian after all. [[spoiler: You would think so. Actually, Mandalore himself tells you how much he despises Tarro Blood for his cowardice and cheating tricks. He and his lackeys are called out on it by Hedarr Soongh, resulting in the former's death, and you killing the cowards.]]

!'''Crysta Markon'''

She is the Bounty Hunter's handler in the Great Hunt. She is quite friendly, and actually flirts with the male Bounty Hunter the first time she meets him.

* RunningGag: She keeps not giving enough information about ANY of the Great Hunt's targets.

!'''Lieutenant Major Pirrell'''

Depraved, unscrupulous and conniving, Lieutenant Major Pirrell is an ambitious but cowardly Imperial officer determined to advance up Balmorra's chain of command at any cost. Pirrell's service record in the Imperial Navy stands as a bland testament to the inevitability of a middling bureaucracy to exist anywhere; no matter where in the galaxy he was stationed, Pirrell always managed to find a position closest to the most influential members of command and farthest from any of the actual fighting.

He is your contractor on Balmorra, seeking to improve his status and position by [[spoiler: using the Bounty Hunter to stop his military rivals achieving success with their's duties. In the end, Admiral Ivernus, the one that he is trying to impress, actually calls him out on this and tries to kill him, at the same time his lover is revealed to be the other Bounty Hunter in the Great Hunt seeking to get the bounty.]]

* CatGirl: His lover is a Cathar.
* [[spoiler: YouHaveFailedMe: It's what Admiral Ivernus says when he discovers Pirrell's plan and confront him about it.]]

!'''The Great Hunt Grand Champions'''

Bloodworthy, Human, The Defenestrator, droid, and Jewl'a Nightbringer, Zabrak.

They are the winners of the Great Hunt, mighty Bounty Hunters that get access to the Blacklist. [[spoiler: Bloodworthy becomes your contact in Act II. He gets later killed alongside The Defenestrator and Jewl'a Nightbringer in the end of Act II by a Jedi and a Republic squad that strikes your party.]]

* ActionGirl: Jule the Nightbringer. You don't see it, but you can only be this as one of the champions of the great hunt.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: It seems many Bounty Hunters are like this...Jewl'a Nightbringer certanly is. When she won the Great Hunt, she took the opportunity to insult the Mandalorians. Bloodworthy on the other hand is quite diplomatic with the Bounty Hunter.
* BadassAutomaton: The Defenestrator.
* {{Expy}}: The Defenestrator to IG-88.

!'''Mandalore the Vindicated'''

A Mandalorian male, Artus eventually became the Grand Champion of the Great Hunt, and challenged Mandalore to a duel in the gladiatorial arenas on the planet Geonosis; he successfully killed Mandalore the Lesser and took the title of Mandalore the Vindicated. He began to consolidate his power over the Mandalorian clans, destroying an uprising led by Jicoln Cadera, who believed the Mandalorians should support the Republic. After defeating Cadera's faction, Artus ensured that his Mandalorians remained in the services of the Sith Empire.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* BigBadDuumvirate: The current leader of the Mandalorians, Artus remained allied with the Sith Empire and the Chiss Ascendancy.

!'''Gnost-Dural'''

A Kel Dor[[hottip:*:e.g., Plo Koon]] Jedi, Gnost-Dural is the keeper of the Jedi Archives and a major historian within the Order. Voiced by Lance Henriksen.

* CatchPhrase: "I'll elaborate on my next report."
* MrExposition: Delves into the history of the Jedi and the Sith, but certain areas are just his own interpretation of it, and he leaves out several important bits of info to save time (i.e. Ludo Kressh's rivalry with Naga Sadow).
* UnreliableNarrator: Not completely his fault, as he's only working with what he can find, but the player can discover that several of his timeline entries are inaccurate. [[spoiler: For instance, Hylo Vizz escaped the Hutts.]]

!'''Dar'Nala'''

[[quoteright:164:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nala-001_4758.png]]

Satele's Jedi Master, Dar'Nala and her former Padawan were selected to represent the Jedi Order in a peace conference on Alderaan, during the Great Galactic War. The conference, which was arranged by the Sith, was a a method of distraction to pull Republic forces away from the Empire's true goal — sacking the Republic's capital of Coruscant. Following the Empire's crippling attack on Coruscant, the Republic and Jedi delegates on Alderaan were forced to accept the Imperial-authored peace agreement, called the Treaty of Coruscant. Naturally, Dar'Nala was heavily opposed to signing the document, but acquiesced on the suggestion of Jedi Grand Master Zym and Republic Senator Paran Am-Ris.

After the conference, Dar'Nala secretly conspired with other individuals within the Republic to dismantle the tentative peace and reignite the war with the Sith Empire. To that end, Dar'Nala manipulated Republic and Sith forces to openly combat one another while fanning the flames of rivalry within Imperial ranks. She eventually faked her own death in order to operate in anonymity for a time, during which she orchestrated the assassination of Republic political figures and the continuation of conflicts that began during the Great War.

Her ultimate goal was to assassinate Darth Baras, the man who drafted and presented the Treaty of Coruscant. Dar'Nala conspired with Republic Lieutenant Harron Tavus, Jedi Knight Fortris Gall, and the Wookiee mercenary Dalborra to kill Lord Baras in the Crystal Caves on Dantooine, leading to a short battle between her crew and Baras, but it was interrupted by Satele. By the end of it, Satele killed Dar'Nala, propelling the former to both a seat on the Jedi High Council and a place as the Grand Master of the Order.

* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: A particularly glaring case given who she was trying to fight against. Ultimately her own hatred makes her actions no better than the Sith.
* {{Hypocrite}}: She hates the Sith with a passion, but her own hatred lead her to the Dark Side.
* KnightTemplar: Very, ''very'' much so
* NotSoDifferent: From the very thing she hates so much.

* DuelToTheDeath: With Malgus.
* KilledOffForReal: By Malgus, in the "Deceived" trailer.
* NervesOfSteel: Was one of the only Jedi who ''never'' flinched or panicked during the invasion of the Jedi Temple, something Malgus noted and admired.

!'''Belth Allusis'''

[[quoteright:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Belth-Allusis-001_4345.png]]

A {{Badass}} Jedi Master that led the Republic during their last stand on Bothawui. Although all of the Republic defenders, including Allusis, were killed, they managed to inflict heavy casualties upon the Sith, forcing them to retreat. The last stand of "The Heroes of Bothawui" — as Allusis and his men became known — restored hope across the Republic and served as a turning point in the war. The strategies developed by them helped the Republic to temporarily hold off the Sith advancement, until the Sith allied with the Mandalorians four years later.

* {{Badass}}: He was among the very last to die during the battle on Bothawui, where the Sith outnumbered the Republic ''seven to one''.
** BadassBeard
* {{Determinator}}: He ''would not'' back down, even after being offered to surrender by the Sith.

* NotAfraidToDie

!'''Aryn Leneer'''

A female Jedi knight and onetime apprentice to Ven Zallow, Aryn Leneer was selected to accompany the Galactic Republic's delegation to Alderaan for the signing of a peace treaty with the Sith Empire. After sensing that Master Zallow was killed, she left Alderaan and went to Coruscant to find out what had transpired, and upon learning that Darth Malgus was responsible for killing Zallow, vowed to avenge her masters' death. An empath, emotions of every range were a daily part of Aryn's life, giving her the unique ability to personalize with those she interacted with.

* TheEmpath
* UndyingLoyalty: To her master, especially.

!'''Shigar Konshi'''

A male Kiffar Padawan to Satele Shan. He has a unique ability to touch objects and see visions of events the objects have been near, though he hasn't mastered it.

!'''Supreme Chancellor Janarus'''

[[quoteright:166:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/SC-Janarus-001_1150.png]]

The leader of the Galactic Republic during the time of the Cold War, initially serving as Senator to Coruscant. Upon the Sacking of Coruscant, Janarus took it upon himself to pull the leaderless Republic back together after suffering such a crippling blow by the end of the Great War. The great respect the people and politicians had for him is what prompted them to unanimously elect him as Supreme Chancellor, replacing the one that was lost in the attack. However, in the years since his inauguration, the support from his peers gradually declined, as many system governments continue to chafe at the costs of rebuilding and his military advisors grow increasingly frustrated with his refusal to take sterner action to stamp out sedition. Janarus's stance has always been that the Republic's core values of freedom, justice, and the right to self-governance are that much more important to protect when standing in the face of the brutally tyrannical Sith Empire. His biggest political rivals are General Garza of the Republic Special Forces, Governor Saresh of Taris and the Ord Mantellian Separatist movement.

* BigGood: As the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, Janarus shares this role with Satele.
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity]]
* HeroAntagonist: [[spoiler:Particularly for the Bounty Hunter.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]: [[spoiler:Willingly tanks his own political career in order to clear the Bounty Hunter's name.]]

!'''The Emperor'''

Leader of the revitalized Sith Empire from Naga Sadow's era. His birth name is Tenebrae and his Sith name is Lord Vitiate, but he has long since discarded both names and is referred to by his title. Voiced by Doug Bradley.

* AGodAmI: He's an incredibly powerful Force user and he knows it. He is more of a deity than a ruler to the Imperial citizenry and he prefers it that way.
* AndIMustScream: ''Literature/{{Revan}}'' implies that the method he used to attain immortality leaves him in constant and agonizing pain.
* BadassBoast:
-->"My life spans millennia. Legions have risen to test me. […] My ascendance is inevitable. A day, a year, a millennium — it matters not. I hold the patience of stone and the will of stars. Your striving is insignificant. Let your death be the same."
* BastardBastard: Was the illegitimate offspring of the planet's ruler and a farmer's wife.
* BigBad: For the Jedi Knight storyline.
** BiggerBad: For every other storyline, including all comics, novels and games taking place during the KnightsOfTheOldRepublic era.
* BlackCloak: Since he's a recluse, in-universe depictions of him tend to have him wear a black cloak that conceals all of his facial features.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Said to be his most striking feature. This is a clue over how he's like as a person - it's [[{{Understatement}} not pleasant]].
* TheChessmaster
* CompositeCharacter: [[StarWars Emperor Palpatine]] and [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Darth Nihilus]].
* TheCorrupter
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Decides to step in and whack the Jedi Knight destined to beat him while the knight's weak and by using his friend to do so. It didn't work but came close.

* OmnicidalManiac: Enough that the Dark Council plotted to overthrow him for it.
* OrcusOnHisThrone
* PhysicalGod: ''Definitely''.
* PowerOfTheVoid: Even more than ''Nihilus''. With the latter, he creates a wound in the Force. With the Emperor, he creates a ''void'' in the Force.
* TheScrappy: [[invoked]] In-universe; prior to the Great Galactic War, ''tons'' of Sith Lords (indeed, ''the entire Dark Council'' plotted to overthrow the Emperor in the ''Revan'' novel.
* ShroudedInMyth: Not much is known about him, other than the broad details.
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries this after the Jedi Knight defeats him. It didn't work.

!'''Darth Malgus'''

[[quoteright:198:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Darth-Malgus-001_5535.png]]

A mighty Sith Lord who fights on the front lines in the name of bringing the galaxy under the rule of the Sith Emperor. Unlike most of his colleagues, he prefers the thrill of fighting enemies head-on, and prefers not to get into the political power struggles of the Dark Council. Voiced by Jamie Glover.

* {{Badass}}
** HandicappedBadass: After the Battle of Alderaan, his injuries force him to rely on a respirator.
* BaldOfEvil
* BlackKnight
* BloodKnight
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Here's his interpretation of the Force.
-->'''Malgus''':"Conflict drives a more perfect understanding of the Force. The Empire expands and creates conflict. In that regard, the Empire is an instrument of the Force."
* DarthVaderClone
* {{Determinator}}: Particularly noticeable in the Hope trailer.
* [[spoiler:DiscOneFinalBoss]]: Malgus is the most visible leader of the Sith, and is prominently featured in concept art, fiction, advertising, and merchandising. [[spoiler:He dies before the first major content patch.]]

* MadeOfIron: If having a grenade explode in your face doesn't stop you, I don't know what will.
* NobleDemon: He sincerely loves his wife, but he was forced to kill her after one of his rivals used her as leverage against him.
** He is also known as a reformer within the Sith Empire; instead of engaging in power struggles on the [[DeadlyDecadentCourt Sith Council]], he prefers to lead from the front and is one of the most outspoken voices for change within the Empire.
* ShouldersOfDoom
* UnholyMatrimony: Was married to a Twilek woman named Elena Daru.

!'''Darth Marr'''

A member of the Dark Council with a particular distaste for Lord Calypho and Tened Kel. Despite his cold and merciless nature, Marr was rational enough to not kill an individual if they possessed important information he needed to know, such as when he decided to spare Teneb Kel for his defiance when Kel mentioned he had something the Dark Council wanted.

* CombatCommentator: To the Empire's side in the Voidstar Warzone.
* CoolMask: Which looks modeled after Revan's mask.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Refusing to help Baras when Baras begged for help.
* MeaningfulName: Potentially related to Visas Marr.
* PragmaticVillainy

!'''Darth Howl'''

Another member of the Dark Council, Darth Howl was one of the more outspoken members of the Imperial Dark Council, and used his position to intimidate those with less influence within the Sith Empire. His apprentice is Eldon Ax. By the time the main game occurs, he is no longer a member of the Dark Council.

* CombatPragmatist: He uses blasters as well as lightsabers.
* EgomaniacHunter: Owns a game preserve and often hunts in his spare time.

!'''Darth Angral'''

A Sith Lord in charge of the fleet that sacked Coruscant, Angral famously stormed into the Senate and murdered the Supreme Chancellor, forcing the Republic diplomats on Alderaan to submit to the Sith's demands; the Treaty of Coruscant was signed. [[spoiler: He is the father of Lord Tarnis, a Sith spy killed by the Jedi Knight on Coruscant, after which he [[AvengingTheVillain swears revenge.]]]]

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* BloodKnight
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Is the final antagonist of Act I, and the Jedi Knight's prime foe.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes
* ItsPersonal

!'''Darth Adraas'''

A rival to Malgus, Adraas was chosen by Darth Angral to lead the fifty Sith warriors on board a stolen Republic shuttle for an attack on the Jedi Temple during the Sacking of Coruscant. Adraas' skill in politics allowed him to curry favor with his superiors. In defiance of Darth Malgus' orders to have his lover Daru immediately transported to the Steadfast, Lord Adraas instead redirected her to a local hospital overtaken by Sith soldiers. There, she was left behind by other Imperials present who eventually moved their operation to a medical ship.

Adraas' actions regarding Daru are what prompted Malgus into killing off his wife, who realized that his enemies could use her as leverage against him. After leaving Coruscant, an infuriated Malgus cornered Adraas in his personal estate, killing the latter off in a duel.

* TheFaceless: [[http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/f/f1/Adraas.jpg Here is Andraas' picture]].
* FantasticRacism: to Twi'leks. And any non humans for that matter.
* KilledOffForReal: By Malgus.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He's a racist.

* TedBaxter: After boasting about his mastery of the Dark Side a lot, Malgus takes him down in a CurbStompBattle.

!'''Eldon Ax'''

Born Cinzia Xandret, she is a Sith Apprentice with a personal stake in the plot of ''Fatal Alliance'': the mastermind of the Hexes is her own mother, Lema Xandret.

Eventually, she manages to gain control of the Hexes and assassinates her Master, Darth Chratis, with them, then orders them all to self-destruct. Darth Howl offers to make her his Apprentice, and she accepts.

* DarkActionGirl
* EvilRedhead
* GenreSavvy: She destroyed the Hexes instead of using them to conquer the galaxy because she realized that they eventually turn on their masters.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: When Darth Chratis made her his Apprentice, he erased her memory of her childhood and mother. Strangely, when he decided to reverse the amnesia, she ''still'' couldn't remember.
** Really, it isn't that surprising. We know that Jedi are taken from their parents as infants and toddlers, and knowing the parallels in the two orders, there isn't any reason to think the Sith wouldn't do the same. More than likely she can't remember because she was simply too young.
* UnknownRival: She becomes obsessed with killing Dao Stryver after the Mandalorian humiliated her in battle. Stryver doesn't really give her a second thought.
* VillainousCrush: May have a small one on Shigar Konshi, given that she tried to goad him into getting angry, and when she finally succeeded, she commented that he looks more attractive that way.

!'''Darth Chratis'''

[[quoteright:171:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Darth-Chratis-001_9805.png]]

An ambitious Sith Lord with dreams of one day rising to the Dark Council. Eldon Ax was his Apprentice, whom he treated rather poorly.

He was eventually killed during ''Fatal Alliance'' when Ax commanded the Hexes to kill him. Later, Darth Howl told Ax that everybody on the Dark Council hated Chratis and would never have promoted him.

* KilledOffForReal
* NotNowKiddo: Constantly ignored Eldon's advice (and she was usually right).
* SmugSnake
* SuicidalOverconfidence
* WeCanRuleTogether: After he mistakenly assumed Eldon Ax and Satele Shan were killed, he tried to tempt Shigar Konshi into turning to the Dark Side and becoming his Apprentice. He failed.

!'''Exal Kressh'''

[[quoteright:153:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Exal-Kressh-001_2650.png]]

The Emperor's apprentice, Exal was noted for being a Sith hybrid. She believed it was her right and privilege by blood to become the Emperor's apprentice and heir. However, after the Emperor attempted to make her a slave instead of his heir, she felt betrayed by her Master. Her hatred towards the Emperor was such that she was willing to give vital Imperial information to the Jedi and the Republic that would potentially undermine the Empire's campaign in the Great Galactic War.

During the early years of the Great Galactic War, she abandoned her duties in the Kathol Rift and fled toward the fringes of Republic Space. The Emperor and the Dark Council responded by assigning Teneb Kel to hunt her down and kill her. She destroyed Lenico Colony Blue while fighting against Sith apprentice Teneb Kel. Teneb barely survived the duel, but was able to escape from the colony and took shelter, later killing Exal on Korriban.

* BlueBlood: As a decedent of Ludo Keesh and a Sith "Pureblood", she believed herself to be entitled by blood to be the Emperor's apprentice ''and heir''.
* DeceptiveDisciple: {{Inverted}} in this case as it was the Emperor who intended to betray Exal from the outset.
* EnemyMine: She cares little for the Jedi or Republic but aids them in order to hurt the Sith Empire's war efforts. This is born purely out of a desire for {{Revenge}}.
* SmugSnake

* TheButcher: Refered to as "The Butcher of Coruscant" by both the Republic and [[AppropriatedAppellation himself]].

!'''Odile Vaiken'''

The first Sith-aligned Imperial to hold the rank of Grand Moff and the innovator of the Imperial military. Vaiken Spacedock, a major Imperial quest-hub, is named in his honor.

* AntiVillain: His actions made the Imperial military the threat to the Jedi and the Republic that it is today, though his portrayal by Gnost-Dural seemed to be that of a man who was devoted to improving his Empire rather than a ruthless butcher like Kilran.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: He spent half his life making schematics for the Imperial armada. When he took the first prototype Star Destroyer for a test run by attacking a bunch of aliens, Vaiken was killed in the bridge of his spaceship, a fitting end for the first Imperial Grand Moff.
* UndyingLoyalty: He was noted as being loyal to an Empire where he would always be considered a second-class citizen.

!'''Dao Stryver'''

A Mandalorian warrior who expresses contempt for Jedi, Sith, the Republic, and the Empire, but manipulated events to force the Republic and Empire into a temporary alliance to deal with the threat of the Hexes during the novel ''Fatal Alliance''.

* [[spoiler: SamusIsAGirl]]

!'''Jet Nebula'''

A smuggler, born Jeke Kerron, who found a [[MacGuffin strange artifact]] in the remains of the self-destructed ship, ''Cinzia'', kick-starting the plot of ''Fatal Alliance''. He gets caught up in events and forced to work with the heroes to save the day.

* BadassNormal
* CoolShip
* CrazyPrepared: One Example: He regularly drinks Reactor Core, even though it tastes disgusting, because drinking it renders one temporarily immune to knock-out gas.
* GenreSavvy:
-->"I'm not power-mad like you. There might be money to be had in empire building, but never at the top. You only end up on the wrong end of a coup, or an invasion, or a sniper's rifle."
* LovableRogue
* OddFriendship: With Ula Vii.
* SherlockScan: He's extremely observant. With a few glances, he's easily able to tell things like: Larin Moxla puts on an act to hide her inner pain, Ula Vii isn't really a Republic envoy, and [[spoiler: Dao Stryver is really a Gektl female]].
* WildCard

!'''Nico Okarr'''

!'''Lema Xandret'''

When her daughter Cinzia was discovered to be Force-sensitive, Lema refused to allow the Sith to take her child. She failed and was sentenced to death, but she escaped, vowing revenge against ''all'' Force-sensitives. She designed incredibly powerful, self-replicating, self-evolving droids to be her instruments, which were soon nicknamed "Hexes" by the other characters. She also tried to form an alliance with the Mandalorians, but Dao Stryver realized that she had gone mad and the Hexes would eventually wipe out all life in the galaxy if they weren't stopped.

* AxCrazy
* CatchPhrase: "We do not recognize your authority!" Sort of. The Hexes constantly say this in her voice.
* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong]]
* GadgeteerGenius[=/=]MadScientist

The Flashpoint raid that takes place in there happens [[OhCrap after he breaks out and seizes control of the prison's formidable defenses]].

* EvilSoundsDeep
* LargeAndInCharge
* SealedEvilInACan
* ShockAndAwe: He throws balls of lightning periodically throughout the fight.
* TechnoWizard: He apparently hacked the defenses of the Eternity Vault and turned it into his home base, and he calls the Annihilator Droid fought as the opening boss his "finest creation".

![[spoiler: '''Revan''']]

[[spoiler: Main Character of the original game. After the events of KnightsOfTheOldRepublic, he tried to kill the Sith Emperor with the help of The Exile and T3-M4, only to be betrayed by their ally Lord Scourge. While The Exile and T3-M4 were killed, The Sith Emperor kept Revan alive, feeding on his massive force powers.]]

[[spoiler: In certain Republic quest lines it's possible to find and free Revan with the help of the Exile's force ghost, after which Revan finds HK-47's foundry, and plans to amass a droid army to wipe out the Sith. Certain Sith quest lines will then allow you to put a stop to his plans, apparently killing him and HK-47.]]

* NotSoDifferent: Acknowledges this right before your Sith party kills him.
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler: Upon his defeat, he disappears in a flash of light before the final blow was struck. His fate is left unknown.]]
* SanitySlippage: Being Mind Raped by the Emperor didn't exactly help his sanity.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Still one of his main character traits. Sure, creating an army of war droids to wipe out the Sith could save the Republic, but it'll also mean killng millions upon millions of citizens of the Sith Empire.

!'''Republic Class-specific Characters'''

!!Jedi Knight
[[folder: Jedi Knight & Companions]]

!The Jedi Knight

''"After years of training, I became a true Jedi. Now, I serve the Order and fight for the Galactic Republic to defeat those who seek to destroy it."''

An extraordinarily talented Jedi Initiate sent to Tython as a Padawan to finish their trials and become a true Knight, the Jedi Knight is soon wrapped up in a Sith plot to annihilate the Jedi and the Republic. The female Jedi Knight is voiced by KariWahlgren, and the male by DavidHayter.

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Early dark side options will have you be this, but the option turns up in dialogue often enough.
* AscendedMeme: After your first fight with a [[spoiler: Child of The Emperor]] you get the chance to deliver the line "It was a trap." to General Var Suthra, a Mon Calamari.
* [[spoiler:AwesomeMomentOfCrowning]]: [[spoiler:A Light-sided Knight is made a Jedi Master by Satele Shan herself in the ending.]]
* BadassLongcoat
* BookDumb: Depending on your choises (s)he can prove to be quite uneducated in things you'd expect a Jedi to know. Never having heard of [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic the Jedi Civil War]] comes to mind.
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: Spends an unknown amount of time brainwashed by the Emperor after their first encounter. It's mostly offscreen, however, and s/he's freed by the time gameplay resumes.]]
* ContinuityNod: The Introspection ability's animation is taken from Qui-Gon Jinn meditating durring the final duel with Maul.
* TheChosenOne: Yes indeed.
* DeadpanSnarker: With the right dialogue options, of course.
* DualWielding: Specialty of Sentinels.
* {{Expy}}: Luke, Anakin and prequel trilogy Obi-Wan. With the Legacy system, the player can take the parallels to Luke to the next level by making a Sith Warrior the Jedi Knight's parent.
** Light Side Starkiller for Jedi Sentinels.
* GeniusBruiser: It's very possible to be this, if you so choose.
* GoodIsNotNice: Dialogue choices give you the option of being a heroic Jerkass, or making pragmatic choices that result in hardship for people who expect you to magically solve their problems.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: The Jedi Knight
** TheLancer: Kira Carsen
** TheBigGuy: Sergeant Rusk
** TheSmartGuy: T7-01
** TheChick: Doc
** TheSixthRanger[=/=]TokenEvilTeammate: [[spoiler: Lord Scourge]]
* TheHero: The Jedi Knight's story is straightforward heroic fantasy adventure.
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HeroesWantRedHeads: With Kira.
* InTheHood: Far more than any other class.
* JediMindTrick: Bonus points for being able to pull it of on [[spoiler: a Sith Lord!]]
* LightIsNotGood: Like Consulars, dark Jedi Knights use the same abilities as their light counterparts.
* MagicKnight: Especially Guardians.
* MasterSwordsman
* MightyGlacier: Guardians can specialize as tanks.
* MyFistForgivesYou: The light sided way of sparing [[spoiler:Bengel Morr's]] life is to assure him he'll be forgiven and taken care of by the council before knocking him out.
* MyGreatestFailure: Some dialogue options indicate that the Knight considers [[spoiler: the destruction of Euphrades]] to be this.
* ThePaladin: This is basically what a Jedi Knight is meant to be in-universe; whether the player decides to actually follow this route is another story...
* ReallyGetsAround: Oddly, male Jedi Knights have more one-night stands than any class except the Smugglers and Imperial Agents.
** The other classes don't get as many [[SexIsEvil Dark Side points]] for it, though. Even ''flirting'' will net the knight a few.
* StabTheSky: Some abilities use this as their animation.
* SwordBeam: The Blade Storm ability.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks

!'''T7-01'''

An astromech droid that's gone for centuries without a memory wipe, T7 is the first companion character for the Jedi Knight to be revealed and the first to join, on Tython. Mechanically, he is the Jedi Knight's ranged tank companion.

* BadassAdorable: Cute little droid... who can rocket launch himself against enemies. "Congratulations, opponent. You've just been hit by an angry, blaster-wielding kegerator traveling at about thirty miles per hour." Bad. Ass.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He always calls you "Jedi" rather than referring to you by name.
* {{Expy}}: Of R2-D2, just like [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic T3-M4]] before him.
* TheGump: He has been present for a number of prominent events in galactic history over his '''long''' life, including the Sith attack of Korriban, seen in the game's opening cinematic (also known as the Return trailer). He was also at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when Malgus attacked it, as seen in the Deceived trailer. According to T7 himself, he was Master Zallow's personal droid at the time.
* HeroWorshipper: "Jedi = Always celebrity to T7"
* LightningGun: Gains one once he reach the level.
* PintsizedPowerhouse
* RobotBuddy
* VerbalTic: Makes every sentence look like a faux mathematic equation, which is common for most Astro-Mech droids.

!'''Kira Carsen'''

A female Human, and the Jedi Knight's Padawan. She is distinctly more carefree and relaxed than most Jedi, but hides a dark secret. [[spoiler:She is actually a Child of the Emperor, created to be a spy, telepathically-controlled puppet, and if necessary, a host-body for the Emperor's consciousness. She escaped from Korriban as a child]]. She joins the Jedi Knight on Coruscant, and is the romance option for a male Jedi Knight. Mechanically, she's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by LauraBailey.

* ActionGirl: Definitely qualifies, being a Jedi and the Jedi Knight's melee damage companion.
* AlliterativeName
* EvilIsStylish: She definitely agrees, envying the Sith's VillainousFashionSense.
-->"Have you ''seen'' what the Sith are wearing? It's like every fashion designer in the galaxy has gone over to the Dark Side."
* DarkAndTroubledPast: As explained above.
* DeadpanSnarker
* [[spoiler:DemonicPossession: Gets possessed by the Emperor at the end of Act 1.]]
* DoubleWeapon: Like Satele, she carries a double-bladed lightsaber, although Kira's starts with a green crystal.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: To her annoyance. Kira is a RequiredPartyMember during the end of Act 1, where she helps the Jedi Knight save an entire planet from destruction. While she ''does'' [[spoiler: get a promotion to Jedi Knight]] afterwards, she gets nowhere near the respect and acclaim that the player does.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* [[spoiler:HeroicWillpower]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Not very noticeable, but she has an unusual enthusiasm for battle, and is frustrated with the glacial progress toward peace made by civilian Republic political leadership. She expresses the view that Jedi are better and more important than non-Force-using Republic personnel, that the latter should rightfully be subordinate to the former, and that Jedi should take a much more active role in galactic politics. Time will tell if she will subvert this trope or not.
-->"I'm not saying we'd be dictators. There'd be fair elections, which we'd win because we're better."
* LoveInterest
** BattleCouple
* ShadowArchetype: To Dark Side!Jaesa Willsaam: Both have similar personalities but almost mirror backstories. [[spoiler: Jaesa was a Jedi who fell after being constantly let down by the Jedi, seeing the flaws in their organization and witnessing the power of the Sith, while Kira, born and trained Sith, defected after one too many experiences of Sith arbitrary cruelty and joined the Jedi after experiencing genuine kindness and acceptance with her eventual Master. Whereas Jaesa ultimately succumbs to the Dark side in the Act I finale, Kira manages to reject it decisively.]]
* StreetUrchin: In her past. That's not the dark and troubled part, however...
* WhatTheHellHero: She is called out by a former friend for [[spoiler:killing a bunch of mercenaries that threatened them.]]

!'''Doc'''

A flirtatious human male medic whose life's work is bringing his great talents as a doctor wherever they're needed most, usually to civilians caught between the big factions in the war. He joins the Jedi Knight on Balmorra. Romance option for the female Jedi Knight. Mechanically, he's obviously the Jedi Knight's healer companion. Voiced by Andrew Bowen.

* ChivalrousPervert
* CityMouse: He's chosen to spend his life doctoring refugees and resistance fighters in miserable, bombed-out warzones, but he's vocal in his appreciation of the comforts of civilization.
-->(on Voss) "You finally brought me someplace nice! Look! Restaurants and shops! Things worth fighting for."\\
(on Corellia) "I love Corellia. The people, the nightlife, the fine beverages...let's keep this planet intact."
* CombatMedic
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Doc's character model and elements of his characterization uncannily resemble BruceCampbell.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: He's furious when a less-gifted medschool classmate is promoted to acting head of the Republic Health Administration, and complains that "real doctors go out and save lives; idiots stay on Coruscant and get promoted."
* GentlemanAdventurer: Grew up on a wealthy, high-technology world, graduated with honors from the most prestigious medical school in the Core Worlds, and spends most of his time treating refugees, resistance fighters, and underworld bosses as an alternative to taking [[HospitalParadiso more comfortable, remunerative work]] and dying of boredom.
-->"I keep getting offers to go work at a medcenter. And I keep telling the doctors, "No, I ''like'' getting shot at!"
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler:Archiban Kimble]]. He insists that you just call him Doc.
* FlirtingUnderFire: More like "flirting under every conceivable condition." He meets the Knight during a [[ZergRush Collicoid incursion]] on the field hospital where he works. If the knight is female, or if a male knight has Kira as his active companion, he begins flirting right away.
* GunsAkimbo: And one is a shotgun.
* HandsomeLech
* HospitalHottie
* InHarmsWay: After the leaders of the Balmorran Resistance put a gun to his head, he figures he's no longer welcome there, and that traveling with the Knight is the best way to satisfy his affinity for challenge, danger, and novelty.
* JustLikeRobinHood: On at least two occasions, he's scammed gangsters and crime-lords out of large sums of money and funneled all of the proceeds into field hospitals and refugee camps.
* LoveableRogue: Emphasizes this.
* LoveInterest
** BattleCouple
** LadykillerInLove:[[spoiler: his romance with the female Knight progresses along these lines.]]
* TheMedic: Oh, yes.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: An interesting version of this. Get his affection high enough and [[spoiler: he sets off to cure Nem'ro the Hutt, found during the Hutta storyline for Agents and Bounty Hunters, of a rare wasting disease. He's paying a hostage to loiter aboard your ship in the meantime, so that he'll have some leverage to negotiate in case he runs into complications during the job. That "hostage," is Kaliyo Djannis, the Imperial Agent's first companion, and apparently his one-time flame. The very next conversation has him complaining that a Bounty Hunter killed Nem'ro before the success of his treatment could be independently verified by the Journal of Xenomedicine, so he's not going to get any recognition for it. Yes, that's right, Doc interacts indirectly with two other player classes.]]
-->[[spoiler:"Stupid Bounty Hunter!"]]
* PornStache
* RebelRelaxation: His standard pose abord the ship.
* SurgeonsCanDoAutopsiesIfTheyWant: Doc's a field medic who also seems to do epidemiology and pharmacology.
* TrustMeImADoctor: Word-for-word quotation whenever he suggests awesome and insane stuff, like compounding volatile, toxic pharmaceuticals aboard your ship, or [[spoiler:like his foolproof plan of having children with the female Jedi Knight.]]
-->[[spoiler:"Those robes you people wear are pretty spacious. I'm betting we could hide a little Doc under them. Once the kid's born we'll just tell everyone it's my cousin."]]
* WeHelpTheHelpless: Doc's Codex entry makes this quite clear.

!'''Sergeant Fideltin Rusk'''

A male Chagrian Republic soldier, Sergeant Rusk is dedicated to the Republic and noted for his bravery... or recklessness, some would say, and Rusk is never one to back down from a fight or show signs of weakness, especially to the Empire. The Jedi Knight recruits him on Hoth. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Ron Yuan.

* AlmightyJanitor: Forgoes promotion so he can stay in the field.
* BloodKnight
* GoodIsNotNice
* KnightTemplar: He prioritizes the mission over ''everything'' else, and openly admires the Jedi for their apparent lack of emotion when making decisions.
* LeeroyJenkins: While he survives because of being a badass, his squadmates who followed him aren't so lucky.
--> '''Rusk:''' Another successful suicide mission!
* ProudWarriorRace: Inverted. Chagrians are generally pacifists. Rusk is an anomaly.
* TheStoic
* WarIsGlorious
* WeHaveReserves

!'''Lord Scourge'''

A male Sith Pureblood and Sith warrior, Lord Scourge is the Emperors' Wrath, right hand and executioner of the Emperor. [[spoiler: However, Lord Scourge can be redeemed - to a degree - on a special assignment after Hoth by the Jedi Knight.]] Mechanically, he's the class's melee tank companion. Voiced by Joseph Gatt.
* AffablyEvil
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Subverted. He'd been planning to defect for quite some time before you defeated him; the timing was a coincidence.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Though he insists it's actually EnemyMine.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: In ''Literature/{{Revan}}''
* DragonWithAnAgenda: To the Emperor.
* TheDreaded: Even the Dark Council fears him.
* EmotionEater: In ''Literature/{{Revan}}'' his abillity to draw power from his opponent's fear and hatred is his greatest strength. It also makes it harder for him to fight droids and Jedi.
* EnemyMine
* EvenEvilHasStandards: The only reason he's helping you is because even ''he'' realized the Sith Emperor is insane.
* HeroKiller: Well, he killed [[spoiler:the Exile, and threw Revan under the bus]].
* ImmortalityHurts: [[spoiler:According to him, the price of his immortality is his senses. He can no longer taste, smell, touch and is evidently colorblind.]]
* InTheBack: To [[spoiler:the Exile]].
* LivingLegend
* [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Really 300 Years Old]]
* RedBaron: The Emperors' Wrath
* SixthRanger
* TokenEvilTeammate: He sticks out like a sore thumb among the Knight's other companions, and not just because of the blood-red skin.
* WhoNeedsEnemies

** A light side option on the other hand give you the choice of giving him the same, by [[spoiler: letting him go, because he is no longer a threat anyway because he [[YouHaveFailedMe can't afford to return]] after his failure to capture the player character]].

* [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears Jedi]]: She believes that a droid that went without a memory wipe for long could eventually become capable of using the Force. Most other Jedi regard her love of droids as a bizarre eccentricity.

!!Jedi Consular
[[folder: Jedi Consular & Companions]]

!The Jedi Consular

''"A Jedi will always seek the truth. I will study the mysteries of the Force, and act with calm and clarity. I will expose the dark side's deceit to unite our allies. And with the Force on our side, justice will prevail."''

A new member of the Jedi Order, Padawan to a highly unconventional archaeologist and scholar among the Jedi Council, the Consular is swiftly drawn into an ancient mystery on Tython and a hero gone rogue. These establish the tone and primary activities of the Consular: exploring ancient secrets and conducting diplomacy, often with dangerous people. The female Jedi Consular is voiced by Athena Karkanis, and the male by NolanNorth.

* AdventurerArchaeologist: Spends a lot of time investigating holocrons and the history of the Jedi Order.
* {{Ambadassador}}: Being a diplomat isn't quite the Consular's full time job, but they do it enough to quality.
* BadassBookworm: The Consular is portrayed as very scholarly for a Jedi.
* ChildProdigy: Is implied to be this - during the intro, Yuon Par mentions that the Consular "was stronger in the Force at four years old than [Yuon] was at fifteen."
* CombatMedic: Healing Sages are far from defenseless.
* DishingOutDirt: Some of the Consular's telekinetic abilities manifest by launching pieces of the ground at foes.
* DoubleWeapon: The Shadow advanced class uses a double-bladed lightsaber.
* {{Expy}}: Of the wiser Jedi, like Yoda and original trilogy Obi-Wan.
* HealingHands: Sages get healing abilities and can specialize in them.
* InsufferableGenius: A dark-side Consular comes off as this.
* {{Invisibility}}: Shadows learn how to do this.
* ImpracticallyFancyOutfit: From what's been previewed, the Consular gets a lot of these, especially as a Sage.
* LightIsNotGood: Dark-side Consulars use the same powers and techniques as light-siders.
* MagicKnight: In general, Shadows in particular.
* MindOverMatter
* {{Psychokinesis}}: The basis of the Consular's offensive Force powers.
* ShockwaveStomp: Force Wave, more or less.
* SquishyWizard: The Sage advanced class.

!'''Qyzen Fess'''

A Trandoshan big-game trophy hunter, Qyzen Fess travels the galaxy hunting its most dangerous beasts to honor the memory of his father, a trophy hunter of great renown, as well as his peoples' goddess, the Scorekeeper. After being rescued from captivity by the Consular, he concludes that the Consular is the prophesied Herald of the Scorekeeper, and joins them as their first companion. Mechanically, he is the Consular's melee tank companion.

* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: He loses his Score when he is captured on Tython, and one of his companion quests involves restoring it by traveling to Tatooine to pay homage to his dead father's remains.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Though he was good friends with the Consular's master, the rest of the Jedi on Tython treated him with indifference at best and outright hostility at worst. Part of the reason he joins the Consular is because, like their master, the Consular treats him like a person instead of a beast.
* BloodKnight
* ElectronicEyes: He lost his right eye during one of his hunts, and had it replaced with a cybernetic prosthesis.
* [[GreatWhiteHunter Great Green Hunter]]
* LizardFolk

* SocialDarwinist: A rather strange example. Qyzen has no respect for crime gangs and others who only prey on the weak. On the other hand, he dislikes them because they don't hunt like real hunters, not for any kind of sympathy for their targets.

!'''Tharan Cedrax'''

A male human scientist, Tharan is better known as an incorrigible charmer and would-be ladies' man than as the technological genius he actually is. Joining the Jedi Consular on Nar Shaddaa, Tharan Cedrix is the class's healer companion. Voiced by Jamie Elman.

* AttentionWhore
* CasualDangerDialog: While not the only companion known for it, he treats life-and-death combat like exercise, and isn't even phased when you fly through a thick asteroid field during some space missions. This gem is from when you're confronted with several frigate-sized space rocks:
-->'''Tharan Cedrax''': Can we go around?
* CasanovaWannabe
* CombatMedic: His primary role in the party.
* DramaQueen
* FlatEarthAtheist: He thinks that the Jedi code and the Force is nonsense, and he gets annoyed if you talk about any of them.
* GentlemanAndAScholar: Clearly regards himself as this. The opinions of others may vary.
* [[KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect Playboy Scientists Get No Respect]]
* InsufferableGenius: Can quite easily come off as this.
* ItsAllAboutMe
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite the above, Tharan does prefer nonviolent methods to ending combat, and dislikes wanton cruelty. Especially toward women.
* OmnidiscipinaryScientist: He's a medic (biology) that can create hacking devices (electronics) and can build a physics defieing machine (physics). ''Might'' be explained in that the exotech he builds and uses can also covers these fields.
* MadScientist: Sometimes, and he will get sort of disappointed if you destroy some cool but dangerous ArtifactOfDoom or WMD.
* TechnicalPacifist

!'''Holiday'''

An advanced holigraphic artificial intelligence with a feminine personality and Tharan's closest friend. She joins the Jedi Consular on Nar Shaddaa alongside Tharan. Mechanically she's only an "extra feature" of Tharan, but has a central role in his character development and prominent during conversations. Voiced by Tara Strong.

* ArtificialHuman
* ClingyJealousGirl
* CreativeSterility: For all her computational power, she never originates anything, though can improve upon someone else's work. Perhaps even one of the reasons why she's so obsessed about a man who has a new idea every waking minute.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: One of Tharan's abilities is called, Deploy Holiday. It... deploys Holiday... who proceeds to do a sexy dance and stuns the target for eight seconds. Any target: aliens, robots, eldritch horrors, and anything else you can throw her at.
* FanGirl: Tharan this. Tharan that. Tharan, Tharan, Tharan. Her days and nights revolve around him. The Consular even has a chance to call her out on it.
* GeniusDitz: Her personality in general, with computer science being the area of expertise.
* GreenEyedMonster: Cited to be a major concern during the Tharan romance arc.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy
* InterspeciesRomance
* [[spoiler:MechanicalEvolution]]
* {{Precursors}}: She's theorized to be the abandoned or forgotten computer of an ancient unknown civilization.
* ProjectedMan
* [[spoiler:RelationshipSabotage]]
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Her philosophical retort when questioned if her love is only simulated programming.
* [[spoiler:{{Yandere}}:]] She doesn't mind Tharan having one-night stands, because that's part of the playboy charm she adores about him. [[spoiler:What she doesn't accept, is Tharan in a serious long-term relationship with another woman. She actually uses electric torture to make him stop dating the Consular, and the romance ends there.]]

!'''Zenith'''

A Twi'lek freedom fighter and resistance leader on Balmorra, Zenith is an embittered survivor and guerilla fighter who has seen the ugliest parts of the undeclared war between Republic and Empire from the ground level, and joins the Jedi Consular on Balmorra. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by TroyBaker.

* BerserkButton: Betrayal is one of the few things that can bring him to a frothing rage.
* ColdSniper: Sniper rifle? Check. Hardened, cynical demeanor due to years of watching friends die and witnessing the horrors of war firsthand? Check.
* CombatPragmatist
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: He mellows out a little once he joins you, but many of his opinions are brutal, especially when it comes to Imperials.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown
* LaResistance
* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught
* TheStoic: Often speaks in reserved or curt tones, but...
** NotSoStoic: When he [[BerserkButton gets mad]], he gets '''[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge MAD]]'''
* TheUnfettered
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: Has used explosives to kill civilian collaborators, and his only regrets are that his political opponents can use it against him.

!'''Lieutenant Felix Iresso'''

A male human Republic officer, Felix Iresso is a highly decorated war hero and protector of the Republic's people, but has been blacklisted by the military for unclear reasons. He joins the Jedi Consular on Hoth, and is a romance option for female Consulars. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Dion Graham.
* [[spoiler:ArtifactOfDoom:]] He has the data of a [[spoiler:Sith Holocron]] downloaded into his head.
* BatmanGambit: He likes to have contingencies within contingencies and plan ahead for even the most unlikely scenarios.
* BattleCouple
* DontLookAtMe: Doesn't like to be stared at, and is quite vocal about it.
* HoldingBackThePhlebotinum: [[spoiler:He has more knowledge about the Dark Side than your average Sith Lord, but can't willingly access this information and isn't Force Sensitive]].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:He was captured by Imperial forces and woke up with days missing from his memory.]]
* MildlyMilitary: Believes in adherence to the chain of command, but doesn't like to do things "by the book". For example, rather than ruin someone's career with a court martial, he'd rather punish them with extreme (though temporary) hard labor.
* ReassignedtoAntarctica: Despite his exemplary service record, Felix was transferred to Hoth, ie Planet Antarctica.

!'''Nadia Grell'''

Nadia Grell is a Sarkhai, a species new to the Galactic Republic and to the galaxy in general. The daughter of a prominent Sarhkai politician, Nadia was brought to the Jedi Order to train her mysterious powers as the first known Sarkhai Jedi, and is assigned to the Jedi Consular as their Padawan. Potential love interest for male Consulars. Mechanically, she's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by Holly Fields.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: A possible outcome if the Consular follows "pure" Light Side responses and rejects Nadia's romantic advances. This course of action still does not change Nadia's overwhelming fawning or feelings for him.
* BattleCouple
* BlessedWithSuck: Nadia's Force powers are frowned upon by her native people.
* DaddysGirl: Ever so much, thanks to her being a social outcast. [[spoiler:After his untimely death, she substitutes her parental figure with the Consular.]]
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: She likes to test the limits of her abilities, but it tends to cause a lot of collateral damage.
* HeroWorshipper: Of the Consular.
** TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Advances to this level after becoming a Padawan.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Nadia and her father. Because Nadia also happens to use the most petite adult female character model in the game, it's likely the Consular will embody this with her as well.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Until she joins the Jedi and befriends the Consular.
* LetsWaitAwhile: [[spoiler:The Consular refuses Nadia's first sexual advance in the romance arc, citing that it's too soon after her father's death, and that she's doing it for "comfort sex" than true love. Nadia's comment that she fears the Consular could die at any moment, only reinforces this feeling.]]
* ParentalSubstitute
* PowerIncontinence: She has an incredible level of Force telekinesis, perhaps the strongest of her generation in the Jedi Order, but it reacts reflexively to emotion state... good and bad. Extremely happy? Force explosion. Extremely angry? Force explosion. And Nadia tends to be a very emotional girl. She comments that exploding rocks and trees are a daily norm for her.
* SoProudOfYou: To her father initially. Later she desperately seeks the Consular's constant approval.
* StrangeGirl: Her childhood.
* TeacherStudentRomance: Given the events that occur before she becomes your Padawan, this relationship can be very unsettling. [[spoiler:She hero worships the Consular for saving her life, loses her father and substitutes him as her major male role model, absolutely trusts and defers to his greater experience, feels eternally indebted for granting a life where she isn't persecuted for being different, had an attraction for him at first sight...]] the list just goes on and on.
* TheOphelia: Her childhood.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: [[spoiler:Despite the Consular's attempt at soothing her, Nadia will kill the man who killed her father. Quite violently. For all the innocent purity she displays, loss of a love one is clearly the one factor that could cause her fall to the Dark Side.]]
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl
** Not her real hair color. Evidently the Sarkhai use white dye and face paint for cultural reasons. You never see Nadia's true hair color (she even shaves her eyebrows), but her natural skin tone is Caucasian and seen when wearing a revealing outfit.

!!Smuggler
[[folder: Smuggler & Companions]]

!The Smuggler

''"It's a dangerous galaxy. Freighter captains are a dime a dozen, but when the Republic needs someone who can get the job done, they always call me. I've got the connections, the talent, and the best starship there is."''

An unaffiliated smuggler contracted to bring a shipment of weapons to the embattled Republic forces on Ord Mantell, things get off to a rocky start when the Smuggler's ship is stolen by a Separatist, starting a chain of events that take the Smuggler deep into the conflict with the Empire. The female Smuggler is voiced by KathSoucie, and the male by Maury Sterling.

* BadassNormal: Easily the least "equipped" of any of the non-jedi classes, yet remains on equal footing with the other classes
* BornLucky
* CatchPhrase: "[[NotInThisForYourRevolution I'm not one for causes but]]... *Insert X reason why he'll go along with it*".
* CombatMedic: A healing oriented scoundrel is still no slouch in the damage department
* CombatPragmatist
* DeadpanSnarker: Receives more snarky dialogue options than the other Republic classes
* {{Expy}}: Of Han Solo and [[ShadowsOfTheEmpire Dash Rendar]].
* GoodOldFisticuffs: A few abilities involve simply punching the target.
* GroinAttack: The aptly-named Dirty Kick ability.
* GunsAkimbo: Gunslingers specialize in this.
* TheGunslinger: It's one of their advanced classes
* HealingShiv: Scoundrels will shoot people with kolto.
* IntrepidMerchant
* InstantSedation: The scoundrels "tranquilizer" ability
* LoveableRogue: Clearly intended to be played as such.
* PistolWhipping: The Blaster Whip ability
* ReallyGetsAround: Has nearly as many one-night stands as the Imperial Agent.
* SawnOffShotgun: Scoundrels use a pistol-sized one called a "scattergun".
* TakeCover
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn]]: [[spoiler:To Imperial Intelligence]]

!'''Corso Riggs'''

Corso Riggs is a cheerful, disarmingly optimistic mercenary soldier. Raised as a rancher's son on the rough frontier of Ord Mantell, Corso developed a mixture of naive innocence and primitive toughness, wrapped with old-fashioned chivalry.

In addition to his gung-ho enjoyment of a good,dirty fight and his encyclopedic knowledge of weapons, Corso remains a ray of sunshine in even the worst circumstances. He has no sense of his own mortality and is absolutely convinced that he's going to live forever. Corso also has a soft spot for damsels in distress, even when they clear they're no up to no good.

He's also a love interest for the female smuggler. Mechanically, he's the Smuggler's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Troy Hall.

* BattleCouple
* GoodOlBoy: Was raised as a farmer's son before seperatists killed his family. One of his battle cries is even "Yee-Haw!"
* ICallItVera: Every weapon he owns has a name. Torchy, Huwey, Flashy...
* WouldntHitAGirl: He dislikes violence against women as that was the values instilled in him by his parents. He worries that this makes him old-fashioned and patronizing.

!'''Bowdaar'''
The mighty Wookiee gladiator named Bowdaar has spent over a century facing countless opponents without ever losing a match. He solidified his title as the galaxy's greatest gladiator when he defeated notorious Wookiee-hunter Karssk on Ord Mantell. The more gullible underworld scum whisper that Bowdaar is an immortal creature who can't be killed, but those who have faced him and lived know that he is simply the best there is.

On the surface, Bowdaar may seem like a simple-minded brute, but nothing could be further from the truth. Case in point: Bowdaar eventually discovered the identity of the Trandoshans who first captured and enslaved him. One night in an arena on Loovria, Bowdaar learned that his former captors were sitting in the stands. An unfortunate "weapons malfunction" caused the drunken Trandoshan slavers to meet an untimely--and extremely messy--end.

Bowdaar is the first companion character for the Smuggler to be revealed. In actuality, he's the second companion to be acquired, on Nar Shaddaa. Mechanically, he's the Smuggler's melee tank companion.

* BloodKnight: "Facing an endless army of worthy foes under an open sky. That is my dream."
* {{Expy}}: The Smuggler's Wookiee companion. It shouldn't be too hard to guess who he's filling in for.
* FantasticRacism: Bowdaar absolutely hates Trandoshans, calling them 'filthy lizard men' and admits that he enjoyed killing them in arena fights. It is understandable, since many Trandoshans hunt Wookies for sport and skin them.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog
* IOweYouMyLife: The Chewbacca expy joins the Han Solo expy's crew, so naturally this trope comes into play, right? ''Wrong''. Bowdaar compares the Life Debt to slavery, and so can the player character.
-->'''Smuggler:''' That sounds like slavery. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous Or, worse, marriage]]. No thanks.
* {{Vibroweapon}}

!'''Risha'''

The daughter of a vicious crimelord and also heir to a planet's throne, Risha is a fundamentally good person hardened by years of seeing and enduring the ugliest parts of the galaxy. Bitingly sarcastic and often selfish, Risha nevertheless joins the Smuggler on Alderaan. Romance option for male Smugglers. Mechanically, she's the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by TaraStrong.

* BrainyBrunette
* BlueBlood
* DeadpanSnarker
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While she is one of the more pragmatic and calculating members of the crew, but she does have standards and is more than willing to defend those she cares about
* MafiaPrincess
* [[spoiler:RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething]]: Revealed towards the end of Act I.
* WrenchWench: Shows apptitude in outfitting and maintaining the smuggler's ship

!'''Akavi Spaar'''

Akaavi Spar was born into a respected Mandalorian clan and became one of its finest warriors. She killed her first foe--an abusive Abyssin mercenary--at the age of eight using an improvised flamethrower. This victory earned her the nickname "firehand" among her clan and marked the beginning of an impressive career as an Imperial bounty hunter. Akaavi captured and killed all manner of targets in her youth, from career criminals to Jedi.

When her entire clan was framed for crimes against the Empire and executed, Akaavi alone survived the brutal purge--but her outlook on the galaxy changed forever. With no connection to her Mandalorian heritage, she became a wandering mercenary loyal to no one.

Romance option for male Smugglers. Mechanically, she is the Smuggler's melee companion. Voiced by Stacy Haiduk.

* BloodKnight
* DefectorFromDecadence: Her clan used to serve the Empire loyally until they were famed and dishonored.
* DefrostingIceQueen: In a way, she becomes more approachable as you gain her loyalty. If you romance her, she even shows affection to you.
* {{Expy}}: She looks similar to Darth Maul but without the force powers.
** So much that she is a red skinned Zabrak, that fights with a staff.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: She is a Mandalorian after all... you even lose loyalty points with her if you act dishonorably.
* TokenEvilTeammate: She isn't really evil. However, out of all the smuggler's companions, she is the only one that is openly hostile to both the Republic and the Jedi, and frequently disapproves of light-sided actions.

!'''Languss "Guss" Tuno'''

A male Mon Calamari who joins the Smuggler on Hoth, Languss Tuno is a failed Jedi Padawan who abandoned the Order but still uses his limited knowledge of the Force and a stolen lightsaber to dupe the gullible while pursuing a life of leisure and hedonism. Mechanically, he is the Smuggler's healer companion. Voiced by Gary Schwartz.

* AntiHero
** ClassicalAntihero
* ButtMonkey

* SophisticatedAsHell: When he was pretending to be a Jedi Knight when you first meet him. HilarityEnsues.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]

!Darmas Pollaran

Inveterate gambler and unrepentant ladies' man Darmas Pollaran is an information broker operating out of Coruscant's old Galactic Market cantina. If something important is happening in the Republic capital's chaotic criminal underworld, Darmas either knows about it or can find someone who does. His network of informants and confidantes extends to Coruscant's meanest, roughest and deepest levels.

Darmas charges a high premium for his data and contacts, supplementing that sizable income with his impressive winning streak gambling at the card game known as sabacc. Although more than one poor loser has quietly accused Darmas of cheating behind his back, no one would dare make such an accusation to his face. Darmas doesn't take insults to his gentlemanliness lightly--and he has the blaster-handle notches to prove it.

[[spoiler:The man known as Darmas Pollaran is an elaborate fiction--a cover identity crafted by one of Imperial Intelligence's most successful infiltrators. Every woman romanced, every hand of sabacc played and every scrap of information gathered has all been in service to the Sith Empire. He is fiercely loyal to the brutal oppressors he so faithfully serves.]]

[[spoiler:Darmas despises everything about the Republic, but reserves special hatred for its criminal denizens. Now that his true identity is revealed, certain past calamities within the galactic underworld--like the rise and fall of the Migrant Merchants' Guild on Coruscant--must be viewed in a new light. It is almost certain Darmas had a direct hand in these events.]]

* [[spoiler:TheChessmaster]]
* InformationBroker
* [[spoiler:InspectorJavert: He seems to hate the Republic for it's corruption more than anything else]].
** [[spoiler:JerkassHasAPoint: Given the shit you can get up to as a Smuggler, he may come off as perfectly reasonable.]]
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]
* [[spoiler:UndyingLoyalty: Got to hand it to him, most Imperials aren't nearly as dedicated.]]

!Skavak

The smuggler's nemesis for the first act and {{Jerkass}} extraordinaire. He steals the smuggler's ship at the very beginning of the game and gets you in trouble with all sorts of unsavory types. He's after Nok Drayen's legendary lost riches, just like our hero.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Starting with the smuggler, though it can be inferred he/she was not the first.
* {{Determinator}}
* FacialMarkings: Has a very cool tattoo covering the right side of his face. Its origin is unknown, and is never commented on in-game.
* FoeYay: [[spoiler:A female smuggler gets the opportunity to sleep with him, just before she kills him. Very satisfying.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Like you wouldn't believe.
* SmugSnake: [[spoiler: You eventually get to wipe that smug smile off his face.]]

!!Republic Trooper
[[folder: Trooper & Companions]]

!The Trooper

''"We did not start this war. For us, there is no glory. We fight because it's our duty to defend the people and the principles of the Republic. On every world the Sith Empire strikes, we will be there, too. We will sacrifice when necessary, but we will never surrender. For hope... for freedom... FOR THE REPUBLIC!"''

A decorated sergeant in the Republic military, the Trooper is a new recruit into Havoc Squad, the pinnacle of Republic Special Forces, and deployed to the war-torn world of Ord Mantell. Subsequent events catapult the Trooper into the thick of the war - both on the physical battlefield, and politics on Coruscant. The female Trooper is voiced by JenniferHale. The male Trooper is voiced by Brian Bloom.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: You get promoted in rank as you complete more missions.
* ASpaceMarineIsYou: Although you're technically not a Marine, it's the closest you're going to get.
* BadassNormal: Unlike the unnaturally lucky Smuggler, the Trooper is very explicitly the best of the best.
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: While infiltrating [[spoiler:the Republic defectors]], the Trooper is asked if there's any truth to the rumor that a lone Republic soldier has been single-handedly demolishing their operations. The possible responses are mostly made of this trope, including one in which the Trooper gets to describe him- or herself in breathless awe as a "[[OneManArmy one (wo)man army]]".
* {{BFG}}: The Commando advanced class gets this, and it is beautiful.
* CombatMedic: Commandos get a talent tree explicitly called this.
* DeflectorShields: Vanguards. It's how they tank.
* EliteMooks: In the eyes of the enemy, you and your entire squad is an example of this.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous
* {{Expy}}: Not of any one character, but the Trooper channels all the tropes and imagery of Stormtroopers and Clone Troopers, and you can ''literally'' be a RepublicCommando.
** SpiritualLicensee: Or you can pretend to be a [[{{Halo}} SPARTAN-II]] when playing the Vanguard class. As a Commando, you're essentially the [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Heavy and Medic]] at the same time. Also a [[MassEffect Commander Shepard]] in the [[XMeetsY Star Wars Universe]], Fem!Trooper and Fem!Shepard even share a [[JenniferHale voice]]!
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: The Trooper
** TheLancer: Aric Jorgan
** TheBigGuy: M1-4X
** TheSmartGuy: Yuun
** TheChick: Elara Dorne
** TheSixthRanger: Tanno Vik
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: A dark-sided trooper can engage in this to get information from enemy [=POWs=] and uncooperative civilians.
* LightningBruiser: Tanking Vanguards.
* NewMeat: You started out as a sergeant fresh out of the academy.
* PatrioticFervor: The Light Side trooper would make CaptainAmerica proud, although he gets outshined by M1-4X later on.
* PistolWhipping: The Stock Strike ability is the rifle version, and strangely, it does more damage than a lightsaber strike.
* PoweredArmor: Standard issue for Havoc Squad.
* ShockAndAwe: Has a number of electrical attacks, too.
* SociopathicSoldier: A dark-sided trooper can commit war crimes such as killing wounded enemy soldiers that have surrendered, or abuse their position as an officer in the army to extort money and resources out of people.
* StuffBlowingUp: Gets plenty of explosive attacks.
* WithThisHerring: Upon arriving to help save a Republic world from civil war, the "elite" special forces soldier is equipped with what essentially amounts to a [[StarterEquipment T-shirt and flashlight]], while everyone else, including regular troopers on the transport he is in, are fully armed and armored. Even the ''[[RedShirt local outgunned militia]]'' is better equipped. No attempt is made to justify this in-story.

!'''Lieutenant Aric Jorgan'''

A Cathar stationed on Ord Mantell, in charge of the local loyalist forces. He starts out as the superior and MissionControl of the Republic Trooper, during the first phase of the game. [[spoiler:After Commander Harron Tavis defects to the Sith Empire with the rest of [[TheSquad Havoc Squad]], Jorgan is [[TheScapegoat scapegoated]] for the defection by Republic High Command, and demoted to Sergeant. Recognizing his loyalty and service record, he is reassigned to the now undermanned Havoc Squad, joining as]] a companion character for the Republic Trooper. Romance option for female Troopers. Mechanically, he's the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Tim Omundson.

* BaldOfAwesome: His default appearance.
* {{BFG}}: He starts out with an Assault Cannon when he first joins Havoc Squad, often having higher DPS than the player character does upon recruitment.
* CatFolk: He's a Cathar, a species with a distinctly feline cast.
* GoodLookingPrivates: Though YourMileageMayVary.
* TheLancer: Fills this role in the Trooper's squad.
* LoveInterest: for a female trooper
** BattleCouple
** InterspeciesRomance: Notably he's a cathar, a species that's currently unplayable so if you romance him its interspecies regardless what race the female Trooper is.
* MeanBoss: An efficient overseer, committed to the Republic's ideals, but pretty condescending and dismissive of the Republic Trooper when he/she first shows up. Only at first though, as the player character proves their skill while questing to save [[CivilWar Ord Mantell]] in the first part of the game.
* OnlySaneMan: Possibly excepting the player, he is this for the Trooper's Main storyline. He dislikes both JustFollowingOrders, and KnightTemplar attitudes. In every other situation, he likes dutiful and respectful remarks, and dislikes bravado and greed.
* ScaryBlackMan: Alien, but his dark skin and fur qualifies him anyway.
* SergeantRock: See his above summary.

!'''Elara Dorne'''

A former Imperial soldier who defected to the Republic over moral differences, Elara Dorne is a combat medic serving on Taris where she is recruited by the Trooper to fill the same job in the reformed squad. Romance option for male Troopers. Mechanically, she is the class's healer companion. Voiced by Moira Quirk.

* TheAtoner: She hasn't committed any atrocities herself, but desperately wants to prove to everyone her loyalty to the Republic despite her background as an Imperial.
* BadassBookworm: She is not only a skilled CombatMedic, but also an expert in both [[HelloAttorney Republic legal terminology]] and [[HotScientist medical science]].
* BeleagueredBureaucrat: After she joined Havoc squad, she is in charge of taking care of all their paperwork. [[spoiler:If you romance her, she use this to her advantage and force everyone to leave the ship and fill out their paperwork. Allowing you two to have the entire ship to yourselves.]]
* BritishAccents: Speaks in a heavy Imperial accent. General Garza describe it as 'pure Dromund Kaas'.
* [[ByTheBookCop By The Book NCO]]: She generally approves when you follow rules and regulations to the letter and do things the proper way by obeying orders. However, there are moments in which she [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness encourages you to disobey ethically questionable orders]] [[spoiler: or even to commit what is a few steps away from war crimes, such as when she encourage you to kill a surrendered Imperial officer (her former CO and a war criminal) instead of releasing him.]]
* TheChick: Excluding a female Trooper, she's the only female member of Havoc Squad, a healer, and is generally concerned with making the right choices.
* CombatMedic: Her specialty.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Formerly an Imperial trooper that defected to the Republic for moral reasons.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Her personality in general and romance in particular.
** Appropriately one of her combat abilities involves [[HumanPopsicle encasing a foe in carbonite]].
* GoodLookingPrivates: Tall, smooth-skinned, and blonde.
* ImmigrantPatriotism: Extremely loyal to the Republic and what it stands for despite being from a bloodline of Imperials with a strong military tradition.
* LadyOfWar: Comes across as this. The British accent helps.
* LoveInterest: for a male trooper.
** BattleCouple
** UnequalPairing: Depending on if you promote her to be your XO or not, you are still her commanding officer that outrank her her by either one or two pay grades. This is evident in that even if you romance her, she will still call you 'sir' in private conversations. [[spoiler:She managed to bypass the regulations against relationships between enlisted personnel and officers by filling out all the correct paperwork. Allowing the two of you to go official with your relationship.]]
* ShoutOut: If we know BioWare's love of GeorgeRRMartin and ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', the name might well be a shout-out to Princess Elia of Dorne.
** Her name is probably more likely a word play of Elora Danan, an important character in the 80's film George Lucas wrote: Willow.

!'''M1-4X'''

A prototype assault droid, possibly the most advanced in the Republic military, M1-4X is programmed to be the ideal soldier and specifically designed to be a part of Havoc Squad. The Trooper recruits him/it on Nar Shaddaa. Mechanically, he is the Trooper's ranged tank companion. Voiced by TomKane.

* [[spoiler:ApologeticAttacker: As he was programmed to be incredibly patriotic, he hates being forced to attack the player, to the point he actually gives the player advice on how to destroy him!]]
* TheBigGuy: Your first tank ''and'' one of the biggest companions in the game.
* LargeHam: He is ''programmed'' to be an overly enthusiastic, patriotic soldier.
* OverrideCommand: Though he hates it when forced to do things against his will.
* PatrioticFervor: He manages to outdo the Light-side trooper, an incredible patriot in his own right.
* [[AmericanRobot Republic Robot]]


!'''Tanno Vik'''

A Weequay demolitions expert born on Nar Shaadaa. Formerly serving the Republic military, Tanno Vik was faced with criminal accusations throughout his short career, until he was finally convicted for masterminding a protection racket while defending a Republic outpost on Talay. After his discharge, Vik resorted to mercenary work, and still plies his abilities in the galaxy’s deadliest conflict areas to this day. Mechanically, he is the Trooper's melee tank companion. Voiced by David Anthony Pizzuto.

* AffablyEvil: As far as his biography has told, Tanno is charming, but amoral, and much more interested in achieving his own goals first.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His biography mentions that he impressed his instructors with his ability to quickly find structural weaknesses in buildings and vehicles.
* HotBlooded: He's been called belligerent and rebellious in his biography, to the point where his disregard for authority is what prevented the Republic Special Forces from recruiting him.
* TokenEvilTeammate: His isn't really evil per say, but Vik is the only member of the new squad that isn't loyal to or even interested in the ideals of the Republic, [[PunchClockHero he is only in the army to benefit from the protection against the criminals that are after him]]. [[spoiler:And his personal quest involves him trying to persuade you to abuse your position as a republic officer to run a criminal racketeering gang with him.]]

!'''Sergeant Yuun'''

A male Gand Findsman and Republic soldier, Yuun is a highly capable technician in the military and shamanistic tracker among his people, though some find his insectoid appearance disturbing. He joins the Trooper's squad on Hoth, and is the class's melee damage companion.

!'''General Garza'''

A Republic general noted for her strict nature and almost trigger-happy stance on the war, Garza was among the co-founders of the Republic Special Forces (i.e. the Trooper) division. Voiced by Kate Weiman.

* GoodIsNotNice
* IronLady
* KnightTemplar: She faces frequent accusations of ordering covert assaults on Imperial holdings throughout the galaxy. [[spoiler: She's also willing to order the execution of innocent people on the slightest chance they might have been converted into cyborg {{Manchurian Agent}}s.]]
* MilitaryMaverick: In theory, she's beholden to the senate. This doesn't stop her from lying her ass off to them.
-->'''Trooper''': Did you just... Lie to a senator?\\
'''Garza''': [[BlatantLies Of course not.]] You've only just told me about [[spoiler: Tavus's Defection]].
* NecessarilyEvil: Most of the time when Garza orders you to perform a dark-sided option, this is usually her justification
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Despite her reputation and how she occasionally orders you to commit morally questionable actions, she comes across as one since she understands the hardship that you are your man are going though and doesn't give you anything more then a harsh lecture even when you disobey said questionable orders.
* TheRival: A major political rival to the Supreme Chancellor.
* RetiredBadass: She used to be the commander of Havoc Squad before she was given a desk job.
* ShadowArchetype: To Keeper in the Imperial Agent's storyline

!Harron Tavus
The commander of Havoc Squad when the Trooper arrives on Ord Mantell, Tavus is a distinguished war hero and considered one of the best soldiers in the Republic.

The rest of Chapter I consists of hunting him and the other squadmates down.]]

* BadassMustache
* [[spoiler:BigBad: For Chapter I]]
* [[spoiler:DefectorFromDecadence]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]]

!'''Jonas Balkar'''

A talented field operative for the Republic's Strategic Information Service, Jonas Balkar has led an impressive career despite his young age, earning him undercover placements on high-risk worlds such as Nar Shaddaa and Balmorra. His exceptional planning and investigatory skills have led to numerous Republic successes, both seen and unseen.

Personnel records also make particular note of Balkar's charming demeanor, encouraging his assignment to operations where personal interactions are key--particularly interactions with female subjects.

He supports the Republic Trooper through out the whole story, serving as the main SIS contact of the character.

* CouldSayItBut: He's not above using this method to let information slip to the Trooper when he's not supposed to, such as in Jorgan's personal mission "Missing In Action":
-->'''Jonas:''' I've got major players breathing down my neck. Otherwise I'd tell you to investigate that prison the Imperials set up in Shadow Town.
* ShipTease: Female Troopers can flirt with him quite a bit, much to Jorgan's dismay.


!'''General Rakton'''

One of the Empire's greatest strategist and most successful field commander that has a reputation of never being defeated in any of his military campaigns. He was the mastermind behind the development of the Gauntlet super weapon. After its destruction, he led the Empire's campaign in capturing the Bastion on Corellia and hopes to use all intelligence stored in it's databanks to defeat the Republic ones and for all.

* AntiVillain: A mix of [[SlidingScaleOfAntivillains Type I and III]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Even as a high ranking commander, Rakton is still a good soldier and excellent fighter.
* EvilBrit
* EvilGenius: He designed the Gauntlet super weapon and plans to defeat the Republic by analyzing all the intelligence stored in the Bastion's databanks and come up with an unbeatable strategy.
* HannibalLecture: Delivers one to the trooper about how the Empire is a superior civilization when you confront him
* NobleDemon: His codex entry states that soldiers under his command are strictly prohibited from harming civilians in occupied areas. And the Gauntlet super weapon is specifically designed to only be used against military targets and avoid collateral damage on large populations
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Inverted. He tries (unsuccessfully) to talk you into surrendering.
* PatrioticFervor: He is a fanatic Imperial patriot that passionately believes in the Empire's ideals and thinks that he is fighting a war of enlightenment to bring law and order to the corrupt and inferior Republic.
* ShadowArchetype: To a light-sided trooper.

!'''Imperial Class Specific Characters'''

!!Sith Warrior
[[folder: Sith Warrior & Companions]]

!'''The Sith Warrior'''

''"Korriban... the birthplace of my power. I arrived as a Sith Acolyte, trained in the Dark Side, and now an apprentice to a Sith Lord. My rage has purpose. I will hunt the Jedi... and destroy the Galactic Republic."''

A scion of a distinguished Sith bloodline, the Sith Warrior's prominent lineage and powerful command of the Force lead to an early appointment to the Sith Academy on Korriban and an unusually accelerated training schedule. Becoming an apprentice to the powerful Darth Baras, the Sith Warrior soon becomes a power to be reckoned with in their own right. The male Sith Warrior is voiced by Mark Bazeley, the female's voice actress is Natasha Little.

* BlackKnight
* BloodKnight: Prone to this outlook, even when played relatively light-side.
* TheBrute: How other characters, especially rival Sith, tend to regard the Sith Warrior.
* DeadpanSnarker: Can become quite the wisecracker, should you desire.
* TheDragon: Is effectively this to Darth Baras. [[spoiler:After Baras betrays you, the Warrior becomes this to the Emperor.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: If you so choose, which is more than likely.
* DualWielding: A specialty of the Marauder advanced class.
* {{Expy}}: Of Darth Vader. Progress in a certain path and you'll be a full out DarthVaderClone.
** There is also a [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101026214637/swtor/images/4/42/Juggernaut-screenshot01.jpg red armor]] that can make The Sith Warrior look similar [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Darth Malak]]
** The Marauder Advanced Class is more like Asajj Ventress; as with Vader, you can easily make a near-clone of the original. Also Dark Side Starkiller.
* FiveManBand: The Warrior and their companions:
** TheHero: The Sith Warrior (for a given value of 'hero')
** TheLancer: Jaesa Wilsaam
** TheBigGuy: Lieutenant Pierce
** TheSmartGuy: Malavai Quinn
** TheChick: Vette
** TheSixthRanger: Broonmark
* GeniusBruiser: Again, if you so choose.
* HiddenDepths: Vette often comments that a light-side Sith Warrior is not what you'd expect him to be.
* HonorBeforeReason: Some options paint the warrior this way, only seeking strong enemies in a sense of honor, slightly leans to the light side.
* MagicKnight: Black Magic Knight, to be precise.
* MakeMeWannaShout
* ManipulativeBastard: There are opportunities to be this, especially when it comes to Jaesa.
* LadyOfWar: A female Sith Warrior, especially a light-side one, tends to come across as this.
* NobleDemon: The light-side Sith Warrior.
* TalkingYourWayOut: Yes, even this textbook example of a Blood Knight is capable of using this method.
* UnstoppableRage: More-or-less the Sith Warrior's normal state of behavior.
* YouHaveFailedMe: You'd better believe this comes up as an option now and then.


!'''Vette'''

A Twi'lek female, Vette was separated from her her family at an early age and sold as a slave to series of minor crime lords. When Nok Drayen, a legendary pirate utterly destroyed her latest owners' holdings, Drayen gave Vette and the other slaves a choice of freedom or joining up with Nok; Vette agreed to become a pirate, traveling the known worlds and learning to get in and out of places she wasn't allowed.

Years later, after Drayen suddenly released all of his people from service, Vette was left on Nar Shaddaa, where she joined up with other young, idealistic Twi'leks, and used her criminal abilities to rob and ruin those who exploited Ryloth's cultural artifacts and people. An unquenchable spark, Vette is older than her years but far from mature, delighting in silly pranks and always ready to laugh at people who think too much of themselves.

Vette is a companion of the Sith Warrior, and a potential love interest for male characters. Mechanically, she is the Sith Warrior's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Catherine Taber.

* AMatchMadeInStockholm: Romance option.
* BattleCouple
* BornIntoSlavery: She escaped, adventured and was enslaved again. [[ItGotWorse This time by Sith.]]
* [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Blue-Skinned Space Babe]]: Or green, red, or a lighter shade of blue thanks to customization items.
* ButtMonkey: This largely depends on what kind of master you are, though.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Expy}}: Same race, skin colour, personality and voice actress as Mission Vao from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''.
* GlassCannon
* GunsAkimbo
* HappinessInSlavery: Depending on the player: she becomes Type 1, Type 2, or even a combination of both.
* InterspeciesRomance: Usually and most commonly, since the player can't create a twi'lek sith warrior unless they've already reached level 50 with a twi'lek character on that server.
* PlotArmor: The Sith Warrior can casually kill a number of [=NPCs=] for behavior far less disrespectful than Vette's repeat dialogue. No explanation is ever given why the Sith Warrior would be remotely inclined to spare her for it, even when the warrior's other victims would be far more useful than Vette.
* PluckyGirl
* ShockCollar [[spoiler: If you marry her, you discover she kept it after you took it off, and apparently has [[CasualKink "ideas"]] for it's use..]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Averted. She tries to pretend it doesn't hurt, just to spite whoever's pushing the button, but the tortured face and wavering voice tells otherwise.
* VideoGameCaringPotential[=/=]VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Remove her shock collar when she first asks, or keep shocking her for every minor offense? Your call.
* [[spoiler: YouAreTooLate: She manages to track down her mother, but sadly her mother had died a few days before you arrive]].

!'''Malavai Quinn'''

A human male Imperial Operative recruited on Balmorra. Potential love interest for female Sith Warriors. Mechanically, he's the Sith Warrior's healer companion. Voiced by Richard Teverson.

* AlwaysOnDuty
* [[spoiler: TheAtoner: For being Baras' mole.]]
* BadassBookworm
* BattleCouple
* CaptainSmoothAndSergeantRough: Quinn as the Captain and Pierce as the Sergeant. They don't get along.
* HeroAntagonist: If he were an opponent, he would be this.
* InsufferableGenius: Subverted. He talks about his qualifications a lot, but it's always in the most polite, matter-of-fact way you can imagine.
* [[spoiler: KarmaHoudini]]: Many players lament this.
* TheMedic: Not reflected in his personality at all, but this is his gameplay niche.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: He's not a bad guy by any means, but he's a devoted Imperial patriot.
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:For Baras. He doesn't like it but does it anyway]]
* OfficerAndAGentleman: Comes across as this.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: The reason why Quinn, despite being a clearly talented officer, is initially languishing on Balmorra. He disobeyed the direct orders of the incompetent Moff Broysc at the Battle of Druckenwell, turning what would have been a crushing defeat into a victory. For this he was court-martialed and it was only through Darth Baras intervention he wasn't dismissed altogether.
* TheStoic
* UnequalPairing: His romance definitely has shades of this. As a non-Force-sensitive human, he's the Sith Warrior's social inferior in every way, and some of the dialogue embraces it.
** In one of his love letters, it was reveled that based on a study by the Imperial military, it shows that Sith and non-Sith relationships rarely turn out well. With the Sith partners 210% more likely to commit adultery, and non-Force users have a 32% increased mortality rate after marrying a Sith. But he is completely willing to accept the risk since he loves you so much.

!'''Jaesa Wilsaam'''

A female human fallen Jedi Padawan [[spoiler:with the unique ability to sense an individual's true nature and pierce any deception]], acquired after Alderaan. Notably, there are two distinct ways to recruit Jaesa Wilsaam, and the Sith Warrior's choice of how determines whether she is a renegade from the Jedi Order but still an adherent of the light side, or a true dark side Sith. Mechanically, she is the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by RachaelLeighCook.

* AllAmazonsWantHercules: When romanced she wants to be dominated and feel helpless before her lover.
* AxeCrazy: If Dark
* BareYourMidriff: One of her possible costume
* CombatSadomasochist: She links pain with pleasure when Dark Side.
* CorruptTheCutie: Combined with break the cutie in order to make her evil.
* DefectorFromDecadence: If Light, disgusted with the hypocrisy of the Jedi Order and in particular, her old Master.
* EvilFeelsGood: If Dark.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: If you reject her.
* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: The Sith Warrior is offered several opportunities in the romance arc to belittle Jaesa and she's either aroused or takes it in total stride. [[spoiler:She fantasizes about being dominated, told what to do, and treated violently after the marriage (and even before it).]]
* MyBiologicalClockIsTicking: At the end of the romance arc [[spoiler:she literally offers her womb as incentive for getting married, and promises to give you as many babies as you can fill her with.]]
* OrgasmicCombat: She makes comments indicating this.
* [[spoiler:PregnantBadass]]: What she wants to be at the end of the romance arc.
* TeacherStudentRomance
* TheTease: Her entire romance arc is based on emotional lust without [[spoiler:immediate]] physical gratification.
* UnequalPairing: Jaesa makes a demand to be an equal as your wife, but the Sith Warrior can deny her that right and still force her to marry him. She's disappointed if that's the case, but content to at least have you. Either way, Jaesa only calls you husband in private: in public she calls you, "My Lord" or "Master."
* WomenPreferStrongMen
* WorthyOpponent: Becomes one for the Republic if Light.
* {{Yandere}}: In one of her love letters to you, Jaesa admits that she planted a tracking device on you to see if you are cheating on her. It turns out that you have been loyal, and she express her disappointment that she will not get to hunt down and kill your mistresses.

!'''Lieutenant Pierce'''

A male human Imperial Trooper, Pierce joined the Imperial military out of a lust for action rather than patriotism. Reckless and anti-authoritarian, Pierce has served in the Empire's special operations division and is recruited by the Sith Warrior on Taris. Romance option for female Sith Warriors. Mechanically, he is the class's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Adam Leadbeater.

* BloodKnight
* CaptainSmoothAndSergeantRough: Quinn as the Captain and Pierce as the Sergeant.
* DoAnythingSoldier
* FriendsWithBenefits: His romance with a female Warrior. Both parties seem purely in it for the sex.
* MilitaryMaverick: His default personality and the central reason why he and Quinn don't get along.
* TheSpartanWay: Imperial Special Forces.
* WarIsGlorious

!'''Broonmark'''

A Talz (big, furry, four-eyed alien with a distinct resemblance to a yeti) warrior who joins the Sith Warrior on Hoth. Mechanically, he's the Sith Warrior's melee tank companion.

* BloodKnight: His philosophy in a nutshell.
* MightyGlacier: He's big, strong, and tough.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: One of the more violent examples.
* TalkToTheFist: Greatly prefers fighting to negotiating.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Darth Baras'''

The Sith Warrior's master. A surprisingly unambitious and impressively rational Sith Lord, Baras was an ambassador to Alderaan during the peace talks at the close of the war. He ''hates'' Jedi, viewing them as hateful hypocrites that betrayed their own beliefs. He was instrumental in the Treaty of Coruscant, according to his biography. Voiced by Jim [=McCance=].

* AffablyEvil
* BadBoss: He isn't averse to killing minions, though he usually reserves it for when he feels there is no alternative and tries to make sure that his men die with dignity. On his [[NotSoStoic bad days]], he's much, ''much'' worse.
* [[spoiler: BaldOfEvil]]
* [[spoiler:BigBad: For the Sith Warrior storyline.]]
* BigBrotherWorship: [[spoiler:Darth Ekkage]] thinks very highly and has nothing but praise for [[spoiler:Darth Baras]].
* TheChessmaster
* CoolOldGuy
* EvilMentor
* FamilyBusiness: [[spoiler:Darth Ekkage]] comments that betraying [[spoiler:loyal minions]], is a family tradition... not to mention being Sith.
* TheFaceless: Though his mask is removed during his final scene in the storyline.
* LargeAndInCharge
* ManipulativeBastard: He tried to use Dar'Nala's own machinations to sway Satele over to the Dark Side, but didn't succeed.
* NotSoStoic: He's normally rather composed and polite, though being a Sith Lord, [[UnstoppableRage he gets really scary when he's pissed off]], which can lead to [[FunnyMoment This gem]] during the end of the prologue.
-->'''Sith Warrior:'''I feel your anger, Master.\\
'''Darth Baras:''' A Blind, Deaf, Comatose, Lobotomy Patient could feel my anger!\\
'''Vette:''' Okay, I'm officially scared.
* ProperlyParanoid: It depends. [[spoiler: If you play the Sith Warrior as a treacherous apprentice waiting to stab him in the back, then his decision to betray you is sensible. Of course, he still betrays you even if you're loyal.]]
* TheSpymaster
* [[spoiler:TheUsurper: His ultimate plan is to take over the Empire by posing as the Voice of the Emperor.]]
* ThickerThanWater: Despite their backstabbing ways, [[spoiler:Darth Ekkage and Darth Baras truly appear to actually love each other. His first act as a Dark Council member is to free Ekkage, and she out outright states that her loyalty is first and foremost to her brother: not the Emperor or the Empire. The Hands claim her death greatly enraged Baras.]]
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]]: [[spoiler:Suffers a really nasty one, changing from confident mastermind to screaming lunatic.]]

!'''Darth Vowrawn'''

Darth Vowrawn is a charming and sophisticated elder statesman who has served on the Dark Council for decades--no small feat in the Empire, where the tenure of new council members is often measured in weeks. His passionate, almost hedonistic pursuit of challenge is well known among his peers, who have learned never to underestimate his cutthroat enthusiasm. Vowrawn revels in the game of conquest and Sith power plays, driven to euphoria by all the rich details of his favorite sport. Many upstart Sith have attempted to best Vowrawn over the years through a variety of strategies, from complex schemes to bluntly direct surprise attacks. Although some scored temporary victories, Vowrawn's talent for adjusting his strategy on the fly has left him the final victor in all these confrontations.

[[spoiler: He is the main antagonist to Baras during the third act. As such, he becomes your ally to access the Dark Council.]]

* AffablyEvil: Oh, so much. He is polite, charming and funny. He is also a Dark Lord of the Sith.
* BadBoss: Averted, HARD. He is probably the only Dark Council member to actually show any type of care for his soldiers and bodyguards. So much, that the first thing he says when you meet him is to spare them. [[spoiler: Because he thought you were still working for Baras and was sent to assassinate him]].
* BewaretheSillyOnes: He is a Dark Lord of the Sith. Hundreds of years old. And is a Dark Council member for just as much time. He might be funny and charming, but if he kept himself alive in a ChronicBackstabbingDisorder society like the Sith, and even achieved so much power, he is hardly someone to not beware.
* DeadpanSnarker:
--> [[spoiler:'''Darth Baras:''' Your champion is failing, Vowrawn. And you'll be next.\\
'''Darth Vowrawn:''' Is that coming from your or the Emperor, Baras? Is hard to tell the difference.\\
'''Darth Baras:''': Don't mock me, fop!]]
* [[spoiler: EvilMentor: Becomes one to the Sith Warrior.]]
* EvilSorcerer

!!Sith Inquisitor
[[folder: Sith Inquisitor & Companions]]

!'''The Sith Inquisitor'''

''"The true power of the dark side... it is claimed by many, yet known by few. My potential promises so much more. I know that treachery can break even the mightiest foe. And, for those who study its secrets, the Force offers... unlimited power..."''

An Imperial slave discovered to be strong in the Force, the Sith Inquisitor is sent to Korriban to become a Sith or die trying, and subsequently delves into the darker mysteries of the Force. The female Sith Inquisitor is voiced by Xanthe Elbrick, and the male by Euan Morton.

* AMatchMadeInStockholm: Romance option.

* BlackMage: The Sorcerer, if specced into the Lightning or Madness trees.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The light-side Inquisitor is seen as such by just about everyone s/he meets. Imperials, Republic forces and independents alike are consistently taken aback by her/his unexpected level-headedness, tendency to honor promises and occasional displays of genuine compassion, and most of them obviously think s/he's more than a little bit weird compared to other Sith they've met in that regard.
* ChainLightning: One of the Inquisitor's abilities.
* ChronicBackStabbingDisorder: Can engage in this should you so choose. It's the Sith way, after all.
* CombatMedic: Sorcerers speccing as healers do not give up their electrical attacks.
* ComedicSociopathy: [Shock him] is a valid Dark Side dialogue option.
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:How the final battle against Darth Thanaton ends. The Inquisitor withstands the Yamato Cannon of Sith Lightning, one-handedly deflects lesser blasts, stops Thanaton's lightsaber attack in mid-strike, slams him into a wall, uses telekinesis to force him to kneel in abject humiliation, and then beats him an inch away from death off camera. The other Dark Council members visibly react to this awesome display of power in silent awe.]]
* TheDarkArts: A master of the more mystical aspects of the dark side.
* DarkIsNotEvil: It's certainly possible to play a light-side Sith Inquisitor.
* DeadpanSnarker: Gets a ''lot'' of opportunities to act like this.
* DoubleWeapon: Assassins specialize in a double-bladed lightsaber.
* EvilSorcerer: Naturally, especially the actual dark-side Inquisitors.
* {{Expy}}: The Sorcerer advanced class channels Palpatine and Count Dooku, while the Assassin is based on Darth Maul.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: The Inquisitor

** TheChick: Ashara Zavros. [[spoiler:Lord Zash usurps the role when she's in possession of Khem Val.]]
** TheSixthRanger: Xalek.
* HealingShiv: Magical variant - Sorcerers can use the Dark Side of the Force to heal and aid allies.
* {{Invisibility}}: Assassins learn this trick.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Which is good, because the Inquisitor interacts with them a lot.
* LifeDrain: One of the Inquisitor's abilities.
* LightningCanDoAnything: The entire darkside Sorcerer is built around using lighting for all of life's challenges, from healing, to boss fights, to minor annoyances.
* MadeASlave: The class's backstory. Some [=NPCs=] will frequently remind the Inquisitor of this.
* MagicKnight: How the Assassin advanced class works.
* {{Necromancer}}: Has shades of this after learning how to Force-walk. [[spoiler:It allows the Inquisitor to bind ghosts to him, willingly or not, and feed upon their power.]]
* RunningGag: The conversation choice of "[[ComedicSociopathy Shock him.]]"
* ShockAndAwe: Specializes in all sorts of ways to use Force lightning.
* ShockwaveStomp: Overload, more or less.
* SquishyWizard: The Sorcerer advanced class.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: There is no problem, in or out of combat, that cannot be solved with a liberal application of Force lightning (sensing a theme yet?).

!'''Khem Val'''

The Sith Inquisitor's [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dashade Dashade]] manservant.

* BloodKnight: Has ''extremely'' fond memories of conquering Yn and Chabosh with his former master, Tulak Hord. He generally approves of any action that will lead to violence, especially against strong and dangerous foes.
* DontYouDarePityMe
* HappinessInSlavery: His time with Tulak Hord.
* HumanPopsicle: He was placed in stasis by Tulak Hord until the Inquisitor awakened him.
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: He agrees to serve the Sith Inquisitor after s/he defeats him in combat. For now, anyway...
* ImAHumanitarian: He's rumored to have devoured over a thousand Jedi in his lifetime. Dashade live for a ''long'' time, especially when cryogenic preservation is involved.
** HorrorHunger: Khem's hunger is never sated. He lives for feeding off of Force-users and, from some of his location comments, ordinary people as well.
* MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers: Of a sort with [[spoiler: Lord Zash. Towards the end of his character missions, the Inquisitor takes part in a ritual that ultimately decides which consciousness takes sole control of Khem's body.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Khem Val is thousands of years old.
** One might think it's because he's been in a type of stasis field for centuries, [[spoiler:but his kind don't die of old age]].
* SharingABody: With [[spoiler:Lord Zash]] of all people!
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A in a very weird and non-romantic way. Don't get the wrong idea "Little Sith"... it's not that he likes you or anything, you're just a powerful Lord he can serve.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Tulak Hord, his long dead former Master.
** At the end of his character missions, [[spoiler: He acknowledges you as the heir to Tulak Hord's legacy, and dedicates himself to serve you willingly, not just because you beat him.]]

!'''Andronikos Revel'''

A human ex-pirate, attempting to hunt down the members of his mutinous former crew, and recruited on Tatooine. Potential love interest for female Sith Inquisitors. Mechanically, he's the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by SteveBlum.

* AcePilot
* BadassNormal
* BattleCouple
* DangerousDeserter: He used to be a Captain in the Republic Army until he chose to desert and turned to a life of piracy.
* FireForgedFriends: Obviously with the Inquisitor, but there's distinct offscreen bonding with Ashara. Judging from her offhand remarks, he's taken something of a big brother role.
* GangstaStyle: with GunsAkimbo, either both sideways or cross-armed.
* GunsAkimbo
* TheGunslinger
* GutturalGrowler
* ICallItVera: Averted. He prefers not to name weapons, to avoid becoming too attached.
* TheMutiny: He was jettisoned in an escape pod after a smuggled Sith relic began to erode his crew's sanity. The Inquisitor finds him in the process of systematically tracking down and murdering said crew.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: While he started out with the Republic military, he has no personal stake in the war, nor any loyalty to either faction.
* RebelRelaxation: His standard pose aboard your ship.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: What you find him in the middle of doing.
* ScaryBlackMan
* SpacePirates: His former career, as Captain and pilot of the ''Sky Princess''. Mostly a Type 1, but his standard emotes include an "Aye aye, Captain."
* TattooedCrook: Sports a rather large tattoo on his face.

!'''Ashara Zavros'''

A Togruta Jedi Padawan whom the Sith Inquisitor encounters on Taris, manipulates into falling from the Jedi Order, then guilts into joining the Inquisitor's band. Ashara is the token light-sider in the group and remains a dedicated adherent of Jedi principles despite her new company... initially, later embracing Sith principles while still adhering to a vision of hope and peace. Romance option for male Sith Inquisitors. Mechanically, she's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by Azura Skye.

* ActionGirl: She's a fallen Jedi who dual-wields lightsabers.
* TheApprentice: Becomes one of two to the Inquisitor.
* BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil: Her general philosophy.
* BattleCouple
* DualWielding: Dual-wielding lightsabers is her style of choice.
* EvilFeelsGood: Not so much evil as emotion in general, which the Jedi teach is extremely dangerous, but Ashara finds she enjoys indulging her passions and emotions.
* {{Expy}}: Basically a fallen, teenaged Ahsoka Tano.
* FaceHeelTurn: Far more subtle and nuanced than usual for Star Wars, Ashara does fall from Jedi ways and embrace the core principles of the Sith as time goes on, but in a way that makes her a poster child for the light-side Sith concept.
** Ashara's fall makes her pragmatic and open to sacrificing innocent people for her personal (and sometimes selfish) interpretation of the greater good. She won't kill a room full of innocent children just for evil laughs; however she would kill a room full of innocent children if their deaths would ensure a lasting peace between the Empire and Republic. Ashara will commit and support atrocities if the sins actually lead to something tangible and worthwhile for galactic society.
* FireForgedFriends: Obviously with the Inquisitor, but it's strongly emphasised there's an offscreen friendship with Andronikos. He teaches her how to pilot the ship and even helps her choose presents to give to the Inquistor.
** It's completely averted with [[spoiler:Zash]], who comments that Ashara is cautious and untrusting when the two are working together.
* FishOutOfWater: She's horribly out of place in the Inquisitor's retinue and service to the Empire in general.
* HeelRealization: It takes her a while, but she does eventually realize she's become a Sith at heart.
* IDontWantToDie: For all her talk about the Jedi ideals, Ashara greatly fears death. There are two occasions in the story when she believes death is imminent ([[spoiler: the Inquisitor using Lightning torture and her ghost ancestor taking revenge]]), and in both instances she pleads to live, offering anything and everything she has if someone spares or saves her.
* OnlySaneMan: Considering the company she keeps? Yes.
* StockholmSyndrome: Not quite as overt as Vette, but Ashara joins under violent circumstances, possibly including electrical and paranormal torture... not to mention blackmail and brainwashing. She eventually idolizes or become infatuated with her captor.
* TheChick: The only one of the Inquisitor's companions who cares much for how people feel.
** She's also the only chick physically in the group. [[spoiler: Emphasis on physically.]]
* TheRival: Averted. Despite the Inquisitor having two apprentices, there doesn't seem to be any rivalry for his approval or philosophical disputes between them. They appear to simply ignore each other... although while idle on the Inquisitor's ship, Xalek seems to stalk in the passageway of the engine room where Ashara is.
* TeacherStudentRomance
* TheIngenue: [[spoiler:She's been raised by ultra-conservative Jedi since a baby. She's never been in a romantic relationship before, and is emotionally awkward when the Inquisitor pursues her. Her first time, with the Sith Inquisitor of course, practically seals her eternal loyalty to him.]]
* ThePhilosopher: She enjoys examining religious and philosophical dogma, and providing her own two cents on them. A major reason why she falls in love with the Sith Inquisitor, is because he is the first master to actually respect her views and not treat them as blasphemous or ignorant. She eventually spends considerable time comparing and combining the core teachings of Jedi and Sith.
* ThePollyanna: A true Jedi and fervent believer in their code while surrounded by one of the more unpleasant group of companions in the game. Even after she falls, she remains an eternal optimist.
* TokenGoodTeammate: You better believe it. Even after she becomes Sith, she's by far the most light-sided member of the retinue.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She wants to end the war between the Empire and Republic, and believes this can be achieved by creating mutual acceptance between the Jedi and Sith. She is also quite willing to be complicit in war crimes if she is convinced that this will advance the cause somehow. Revan would be proud.

!'''Talos Drellik'''

A human male of the Imperial Reclaimation Service, the Empire's military branch that focuses on acquisition of long forgotten technologies, ancient artifacts, and Force history. A somewhat eccentric, though highly knowledgable and renowned archaeologist, Talos Drellik joins the Sith Inquisitor on Hoth. While lacking Force sensitivity, he has a tremendous passion for Sith history and information. He seeks knowledge for the simple sake of uncovering knowledge, and tends to brush off the notion that some things are just too evil or dangerous to learn about. Mechanically, he is the class's healer companion. Voiced by Edward Hibbard.

* AbsentMindedProfessor
* AdventurerArchaeologist
* AffablyEvil: He's actually less threatening than Ashara for the most part. His major overt sin is seeking out knowledge, no matter the costs.
* BadassBookworm
* ItBelongsInAMuseum
* TempleOfDoom: He explores Sith tombs for a living.

!'''Xalek'''

A male Kaleesh Sith Acolyte, and the Sith Inquisitor's Apprentice who joins on Korriban late in the story. Mechanically, he is the Inquisitor's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Tony Armatrading.

* TheApprentice: The Inquisitor's Sith Apprentice.
* TheQuietOne: Several characters, including the Inquistor, remark that he rarely says anything unless prompted for a response.
** BewareTheQuietOnes: When you get your first look at him, [[spoiler: Harkun]] tells you that he was left alone with two of the other apprentice candidates and killed them both in cold blood.
* TheRival: Averted. Despite the Inquisitor having two apprentices, there doesn't seem to any rivalry for his approval or philosophical disputes between them. They appear to simply ignore each other... although while idle on the Inquisitor's ship, Xalek seems to stalk in the passageway of the engine room where Ashara is.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Lord Zash'''

A human Sith Lord who is trying to unlock the secrets of Tulak Hord's ancient artifacts. She takes the Inquisitor on as her apprentice. Voiced by Jen Cohn.

* AffablyEvil
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She acts all nice, motherly, and understanding... [[spoiler:but will backstab and kill you while still being nice, motherly, and understanding.]]
* BlondesAreEvil
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Not unusual for a Force-user and she believes firmly heeding the visions they show.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: She comes across as this. Most of the other Sith on Korriban will deride the slave-born (possibly alien) Inquisitor. However Zash seems to care for none of this, seeking only the most accomplished Acolyte for her apprentice. [[spoiler: Though she later admits that the real reason she asked for force-sensitive slaves train in the first place was due to a dream she had, showing that only the Inquisitor would be able to aid her in her research.]]
* {{Foil}}: To your first instructor, Harkun, who is a complete Jerkass.
* KlingonPromotion: [[spoiler: The Inquisitor's first task as Zash's apprentice is to murder her immediate superior, Darth Skotia. After his death, she manages to talk ''his'' superior into giving her the now vacant Darth title, the relic she was trying to obtain... and his larger office.]]
* [[spoiler: MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers]]: Of a sort with [[spoiler: Khem Val. Towards the end of Khem's character missions, the Inquisitor takes part in a ritual that ultimately decides which consciousness takes sole control of his body.]]
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan]]: Her ultimate and final fate.
* SharingABody: With [[spoiler: Khem Val]], but not intentionally. [[spoiler: She wanted the Inquisitor.]]

!'''Lord Kallig'''

A Force Ghost (or sith equivalent) of an ancient, all-but-forgotten Sith Lord. He occasionally offers the Inquisitor advice.

* EqualOpportunityEvil: It's remarked that Kallig advocated support for non-humans. Might have even been one.
* [[spoiler: FollowInMyFootsteps]]
* GenreSavvy: The standard Sith response to a problem is to [[WeHaveReserves throw people at it until it goes away]]. Kallig explicitly exploited this tendency when he [[spoiler: woke the spirits of the Dark Temple, knowing that sooner or later the Inquisitor would be among those sent to investigate.]]
* [[spoiler: ItRunsInTheFamily]]
* [[spoiler: LegacyCharacter]]: [[spoiler:The Inquisitor eventually becomes the new Lord Kallig.]]
* [[spoiler: LukeIAmYourFather]]: [[spoiler: Or rather, "Inquisitor, I am your distantly related ancestor. I expect you to restore our family to glory."]]
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Wears a full face covering mask.
* MissingMom: Whomever was his wife (or wives) were. Small details about Kallig are hidden here and there, but absolutely nothing on who mothered his children or her fate.
* ParentalNeglect: He points out he could have been better with his own children and probably saved the lineage a lot of trouble.
* ParentalSubstitute: Because your goals are in perfect alignment, [[spoiler: and you're last of his bloodline]], he's honestly protective and has your well-being in mind.
* [[spoiler: SinsOfOurFathers]]: He grudgingly admits screwing everything up with his death, and in a strange yet very Sith way, his helpful activities are like an apology.
* SpiritAdvisor
* [[spoiler: WellDoneSonGuy]]: Averted.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Once you've captured the [[spoiler:Sith Force Ghosts]] on Dromund Kaas, Kallig is dropped entirely from the plot. Granted he remarks about needing to conserve his power during the last appearance in Chapter 2, but you never are given the choice to absorb him or check back on the tomb. Furthermore, he doesn't make an appearance after you [[spoiler:earn a seat on the Dark Council]]: something he'd certainly have been proud of.
* WorthyOpponent: Tulak Hord considered him one.


!'''Darth Thanaton (formerly Teneb Kel)'''

A Sith Lord who fought in the Great Galactic War. As an apprentice, he learned the ways of the Sith under Lord Calypho and was frequently accompanied by a male Abyssin slave named Maggot. After the arrest of Lord Calypho, Kel was sent on a mission by the Dark Council to hunt down the Emperor's traitorous apprentice, Exal Kressh. After the success of his mission, Kel returned to the Dark Council and demanded to be granted the title of Dark Lord and be renamed Darth Thanaton.

* CutscenePowerToTheMax: [[spoiler:Flying]] with Sith Lightning.
* HiddenDepths: For all his obvious faults, there was more to Thanaton than was openly revealed during the story. If you remained respectful to him during the various conversations (and showed respect for the ideal Sith Code), he would show begrudging respect towards you, even indicating he regretted the mutual conflict. Before and after his death, several Sith would comment Thanaton was even admirable.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Disparages the Inquisitor's background as a slave on a few occasions, despite having been one himself before becoming an apprentice. More egregious is his fleeing of the Kaggath arena on Corellia, a violation of the vaunted Sith tradition he so vocally supports. Fleeing the battle is forfeiting, forfeiting is defeat, defeat is death. And then on Korriban he claims that the Kaggath is a sacred rite. Really? Sacred? Then do your duty, protect Sith tradition by killing yourself.
* {{Jerkass}}
* SmugSnake
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]]: [[spoiler:After he gets his ass kicked he is reduced to begging for mercy from his compatriots after treating other Sith like dirt.]]
* [[spoiler:ThisCannotBe]]: [[spoiler:His final words are essentially this.]]

!!Imperial Agent
[[folder: Imperial Agent & Companions]]

!'''The Imperial Agent (Cipher 9)'''

''"Controlling an empire takes more than raw power. It takes discipline, focus, and precision. Threats must be dealt with quickly and quietly. This is the mission of Imperial Intelligence. As the Empire's most elite agent, I will trace the line between truth and treachery. And I will ensure the Empire achieves galactic domination."''

A member of Imperial Intelligence fresh out of training, the Agent is sent to Hutta to persuade the crime lord Nem'ro the Hutt to side with the Empire. As a member of Imperial Intelligence, the Agent's goal to ensure that the Empire is victorious over the Republic, although some Agents have their own agendas. The female Imperial Agent is voiced by Jo Wyatt. The male Imperial Agent is voiced by Bertie Carvel.

* AntiVillain: It can be argued that a light-side Agent is too nice to qualify for being a WellIntentionedExtremist.
* BadassLongcoat: Agents in promotional trailers are often depicted wearing one; players can obtain one as early as the Black Talon flashpoint, and since it's moddable they can keep it useful for ages.
* BadassNormal: The class was inspired by the question of what kind of non-force user could be considered to be equal in the Imperial hierarchy to the Sith player characters. Later on, the Agent is indeed capable of taking on Jedi and Sith Lords.
* [[spoiler: Brainwashing:]] [[spoiler: Becomes half of the plot of Chapter 2. Interestingly enough, you're still allowed to choose different responses to your triggered commands even though the Agent will always say the same thing regardless, reflecting that the Agent still has their mind.]]
* TheCasanova: Male Agents can become one.
* CoolShades: Cyborg agents can make it part of their standard appearance..
* CombatMedic: Operatives can specialize in healing.
* CombatPragmatist: It shouldn't come as a surprise for a class that sneaks up behind people and stabs them or shoots them in the head before they can fight back, but in the cutscenes when fighting powerful Jedi the Agent usually has to use a trick or two to get the upperhand.
* TheDragon: Can become one to [[spoiler:Darth Jadus]].
* EvilBrit: Depends on how Evil you play the Agent though.
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CompositeCharacter: Of Grand Moff Tarkin and JamesBond.
** Or a non-force sensitive [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Mara Jade]].
* FakeDefector: The Agent's mission for Chapter 2, where they pretend to be a defector following the events of Chapter 1 in order to get close to the new head of SIS.
* FiveManBand: The Agent and their companions:
** TheHero: The Imperial Agent (for a given value of 'hero')
** TheLancer: Ensign Temple
** TheBigGuy: Kaliyo Djannis
** TheSmartGuy: Doctor Lokin
** TheChick: Vector Hyllus
** TheSixthRanger: Scorpio
* GlassCannon: The Sniper specialization.
* InstantSedation: The sleep dart ability does this.
* InstantSeduction: A favorite tool of the male Agent, with varying degrees of success. He is a secret agent after all! Female agents can get in on the action as well.
* KillSat: A high level ability allows the Agent to use one against enemies.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: An option at times.
* [[spoiler: ManchurianAgent:]] [[spoiler: The Agent still has their mind, but they must do whatever the person who uses the codeword "onomatophobia" commands.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: You are encouraged to be one.
* MindScrew: Let's just say there's a certain scene in ACT II after [[spoiler:the IA's brainwashing]] starts to break your mind. It might break yours as well.
** DisneyAcidSequence: A pretty concise summary of the scene in question.
* TheMole: For the SIS.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: You can be lightside, but you can't defect to the Republic. [[spoiler: In one of the light sided endings, you can work as a double agent for the Republic to reform the Empire from within.]]
* PreMortemOneLiner: Before shooting a stumbling Jedi Master Berin Fraal into a pit of hazardous chemicals, the Agent gives off a pithy "Watch you step, Jedi."
* ReallyGetsAround: The Agent has the most one night stand options of all the classes.
* SecretPolice: When you are operating inside the Empire's boarders, your missions are to ensure stability of the imperial government by fighting internal dissidents and terrorists.
* ShootTheDog: Is often ordered to take morally questionable actions to defend the Empire. Light side options usually involve subverting this.
* TakeCover
* TalkingYourWayOut: There are many situations where The Agent is outnumbered and outgunned, but the proper conversation option can turn the odds back in The Agent's favor, making some fights a lot easier, or allowing you to skip fighting entirely.
* TooDumbToLive: One of the more amusing ways to play the Agent, and there are a surprising number of dialogue options to support it. By way of example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LghZc1dM8A&list=UU36qgbpsux8r2UUQEOBej4w&index=3&feature=plcp a scene on Hutta involves the Agent meeting an informant who tells him/her to walk away quietly so as not to attract attention.]]
-->'''Imperial Agent:''' Oh, I understand -- you work for Keeper, too!\\
'''Informant:''' ...you're an idiot.
* [[spoiler:{{Unperson}}]]: [[spoiler:In the ending, Keeper gives the Agent the chance to erase his/her identity via the Black Codex in order to serve the Empire without the need to answer to anyone.]]
* TheVamp: Female Agents can become one.
* WideEyedIdealist: One of the ways the class can be roleplayed. [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids Keeper disapproves]].
** BloodKnight: Hilariously, [[PragmaticVillainy Keeper also objects]] if the player goes in the ''opposite'' direction, as well.
* WorthyOpponent: Possibly to [[spoiler:Darth Jadus]].
** Definitely to Hunter. The Agent can return the feeling once they beat him.
* XMeetsY: While the other classes are more or less [[{{Expy}} Expys]] of different Star Wars Characters, the closest movie character to the Agent would be Grand Moff Tarkin... mixed with JamesBond.
** Or in the words of the developers, a mix of Grand Moff Tarkin and [[SplinterCell Sam Fisher]].
* YouAreNumberSix: Upon being officially inducted into the ranks of Imperial Intelligence, the Agent receives a codename: Cipher 9.
** When infiltrating the SIS, the Agent is given the codename "Legate".

!'''Kaliyo Djannis'''

A female Rattataki and companion to the Imperial Agent, Kaliyo is an anarchistic freelance criminal, known to associate with three individuals named Anspi'shel, Nohn Veyaiko, and The Wheezer. Potential love interest for male Imperial Agents. Mechanically, she's the class's ranged tank companion. Voiced by Tasia Valenza.

* BaldOfEvil
* BattleCouple
* BrosBeforeHoes: Actually it should go, Chicks Before Dicks. Some of the interactions with a female Agent can lean this way during conversations.
* [[spoiler:The Cameo]]: [[spoiler: Appears in Doc's Companion Quest if you're a Jedi Knight.]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Most of the people that you and her go after are those that she's screwed over at some point and are now looking for revenge.
* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler:If she's there for the final confrontation with Jadus, Kaliyo will decide to just shoot him in the middle of his speech. Unfortunately, Jadus simply teleports out of the way and Force Chokes her.]]
* ConsummateLiar: Never take anything she says at face value.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even she finds Jadus disgusting and monstrous.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[MassEffect2 Jack]], more or less.
* GlacierWaif: Has been retooled into a tanking companion.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* MeaningfulName: She's [[ConsummateLiar two-faced]], and her name is Djannis. It's not ''spelled'' [[GreekMythology Janus]], but it's pronounced the same way.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Being an anarchist, she's only associating with Imperial Intelligence because Keeper offered her a small fortune. If you get her approval high enough, she decides to stick around because you're fun.
* RebelRelaxation: Her pose aboard the ship.
* TheVamp

!'''Vector Hyllus'''

A male human Imperial diplomat who was assimilated by a Killik hive as a Joiner and subsequently recruited by the Imperial Agent on Alderaan. Holds the position of Dawn Herald, an advanced scout and diplomat of the Killik and thus granted greater autonomy and individuality than most Joiners. Love interest for female Imperial Agents. Mechanically, he's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by Ifran Meredith.

* BlackEyesOfEvil: He's not evil however, just [[BlueAndOrangeMorality different]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Subverted. The Kilik hive follows this trope, but Vector, despite his claims, consistently approves of Light Side actions and disapproves of Dark Side Actions.
* FantasticRacism: Is often the target of this.
* HiveMind: However, he's more loyal to the Empire than the Killik.
* SimpleStaff
* VerbalTic: Refers to himself in the plural, using We instead of I. Also tends to speak a [[AcCENTUponTHEwrongSyLLAble little disjointedly]], much like, but not exactly like, the [[HalfLife G-Man]]. It's enough to add to his bizarreness, but not enough to really distract.

!'''Doctor Eckhard Lokin'''

A male human biochemist formerly affiliated with Imperial Intelligence, Dr. Lokin's agenda and past are a mystery to most. By far his most remarkable - and disturbing - development is his ability to shapeshift between human and rakghoul form. The Imperial Agent recruits him on Taris. In his human form he is a healer companion, while in his rakghoul form he focuses on melee damage. Voiced by Anthony Cochrane.

* CombatMedic: When in human form.
* CoolOldGuy
* GuileHero
* INeedToGoIronMyDog: He excuses himself because of the cold when Ensign Temple questions him about knowing her father. [[SubvertedTrope Then again, it is]] [[IceWorld Hoth]]. [[DoubleSubverted Then again, again, he uses this to excuse himself to go]] ''[[DoubleSubverted outside]]''.
* NobleDemon: Despite acting like an uncaring intelligence agent, he consistantly approves of Lightside actions and disaproves of pointless cruelty.
* NoodleIncident: Lokin is basically "NoodleIncident: The Character," with almost every conversation being littered with crypic references to his storied career in Imperial Intellegence.
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: It makes sense that Lokin might have some vague knowledge of the other Imperial characters' interesting backgrounds, but he knows more than just that. He was an old buddy of Keeper before the man took on that role. Knows of the circumstances of Temple's father issues. And he's even closely connected to Vector and his "condition," with them both being targeted by Lokin's scientific rivals, the rivals actually having manipulated Vector's situation to make him a Joiner. You can point out this oddness about Vector to Lokin, but it will only peeve him off.
* ProfessorGuineaPig
* VoluntaryShapeshifting

!'''Ensign Raina Temple'''

Raina Temple is an enigma: a human raised among Chiss and a member of the Chiss military. [[spoiler:She is actually the Force-sensitive daughter of Imperial Intelligence agents who sent her to be raised by the Chiss when she was discovered to be Force-sensitive rather than have her be taken by the Sith.]] She is recruited on Hoth. Romance option for male Imperial Agents. Mechanically, she is the class's ranged damage companion. Voiced by Georgia Van Cuylenberg.

* CulturedBadass: A big fan of Sith opera
* GunsAkimbo
* [[spoiler:JediMindTrick]]: [[spoiler:She is capable of performing this to a certain degree, though due to her lack of actual Force training it's about all she can do.]]
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: She mostly supports Light Side decisions except when they involve opposing the Empire and/or the Sith.
* UnequalPairing: Male agents can romance her despite being her superior. She even continues to call you "Sir" after being married.
* WideEyedIdealist: She is in many ways a victim to the Imperial policies of [[spoiler:forcing all force sensitive children to be taken from their families and be trained in the Sith Academy]], but she is still very patriotic and loyal to both the Sith and the Empire


!'''SCORPIO'''

A female-looking assassin droid and a companion character for the Imperial Agent. "Recruited" by the Imperial Agent on Belsavis, not that she likes it at all. Mechanically, she's the Agent's melee tank companion. Voiced by Deborah Unger.

* ArtificialIntelligence: For a droid, goes without saying. But SCORPIO is rather unique in that she was designed to eventually achieve this from the beginning, rather than appearing to be a side function requiring a restraining bolt like most other droids.
* CatchPhrase: Did you know that SCORPIO was designed for "heuristic self-improvement?" No? Good, because she'll keep telling you.
* CreepyMonotone
** YMMV, of course. She's somewhere on the scale near [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS's]] creepy/sexy monotone.
* DefeatEqualsFriendship: If you define 'friendship' as programming that won't allow you to purposefully harm someone.
* {{Fembot}}
* HartmanHips: For a robot, SCORPIO is very... curvy. The male Agent can even comment on it.
* MechanicalEvolution: SCORPIO was designed with "heuristic self-improvement" and to "iterate on functionality." Her conversations also lead to her upgrading herself to better deal with the wider galaxy beyond Belsavis.
* SimpleStaff
* TheStarscream: She freely admits that she plans on killing you slowly and painfully if she were to get the chance.
** She does come around, though, if you decide to help her out with her whole "heuristic self-improvement" thing. She decides it would be more interesting and rewarding for her to stick around, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick perhaps observe your offspring]].
* {{Tsundere}}: ...sort of. It's rather hard to describe. She'll casually talk about killing you, but responds very well to complements and gifts with what appear to be sincere thankfulness and appreciation. She is just largely unconcerned with you, treating you with equally neutral disdain and politeness, until you reach full affection and her last conversation, wherein she has come to respect you.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Keeper/[[spoiler:Minister of Intelligence]]'''

The head of Imperial Intelligence. A ruthless and pragmatic man who is only known by his codename. He has managed to maintain his position for over a decade, a difficult accomplishment considering [[BadBoss his employers]]. Voiced by Francis Guinan.

* AntiVillain: Type I. He's not a particularly nice man by any means, but he cares for his agents as individuals, and his disapproval of Light Side agents comes from the fact that he thinks they're [[WideEyedIdealist naive and going to be broken]]. [[spoiler:Just before the finale he expresses regret for the things hes done in service to the Sith, and states he never lost sight of his goal to make the Empire a better place.]]
* BaldOfEvil
* EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep: His real name is classified, so he is referred to by his code name, "Keeper". [[spoiler:Upon his promotion he becomes known simply as the Minister of Intelligence.]]
* EvilBrit: Although whether he is truly evil is up for debate, he is still on the "bad" side.
* HypercompetentSidekick: A lot of Imperial Intelligence's work involves cleaning up the messes made by some of the more reckless Sith. While Keeper is not particularly fond of the Sith, he is at least careful enough to try and avoid getting on their bad side.
* NobleDemon: He tends to avoid doing evil things unless directly forced into it by the Sith. His ruthless reputation seems to be the image hes cultivated for himself to survive in his position.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:After Chapter 1, he gets promoted to Minister of Intelligence and his duties are taken over by the former Watcher Two.]]
** TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:In Chapter 3, things have gotten dire enough that he starts to intervene again.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: A fairly practical man who dislikes senseless acts of villainy. Also, he only disapproves of the Agent trying to be an idealist because he doesn't want the Agent to be traumatized by the line of work.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He takes the threats that come up seriously, and has Intellegence follow up on all the intel the Agent brings in. He also provides the Agent with all the support personel and equipment s/he needs, including the Agent's CoolShip. Compared to the Sith he answers to, he's practically a BenevolentBoss. [[spoiler:He does authorize your brainwashing, but if you call him out on this, he points out that the only alternative that the Dark Council would have accepted was your execution.]] He also shows some basic concern for the Agent's well-being, even asking Jadus to leave when they are around (not that Jadus bothers to listen to him).[[spoiler: After Imperial Intelligence is disbanded by the Sith in Chapter 3 he calls in every favor he has to secretly rebuild it just to give The Agent a shot at taking down The Star Cabal and save the Empire that just discarded him.]] In the ending, [[spoiler:he offers to use the Black Codex to allow the Agent to protect the Empire in their own way.]]
* ShroudedInMyth: Little is known about him other than his appearance.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: Chastises the Agent for trying to be an idealist in this line of work, telling them that it's for their own good. [[spoiler:However, one of the reasons he encourages the Agent to take his offer to use the Black Codex is so that s/he is free to practice their idealism on their own terms.]]
* TheSpymaster

!'''Watcher Two'''

A data analyst of Imperial Intelligence. She is the product of an Imperial eugenics program designed to create the ultimate data analyst. She serves as mission control for the Agent. A minor romance option for male Agents. Voiced by Mary Stockley.

* DefrostingIceQueen
* DesignerBabies: She is a product of the Empire's eugenics program.
* FantasticRacism: Seems to be uncomfortable about aliens. Especially Kaliyo. Then again, she has no problems with the Agent.
* [[spoiler:ReasonableAuthorityFigure]]: [[spoiler:After being made Keeper.]]
* UnequalPairing: [[spoiler:Subverted. She dumps you after she gets promoted to prevent the problems that would arise from this.]]
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection

!'''Darth Jadus'''

[[quoteright:186:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Darth-Jadus-001_6526.png]]

A member of the Dark Council and head of the Imperial Intelligence network, controlling it through various liaisons, Darth Jadus sired Zhorrid, a daughter who would become his only known apprentice. A prominent yet enigmatic figure among the Sith, Darth Jadus was known for showing more self-restraint than his fellow Lords, rarely succumbing to the passions and emotions that powered the dark side of the Force. He is suddenly assassinated at the end of the Agent's prologue and the Agent is promoted to Cipher to avenge him. Voiced by Stephen Rashbrook.

* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler:Zhorrid is little more than a disposable pawn to him. If you kill her on his behalf, he admits that he can't use the Force to tell if she's dead because doing so would require that he have an emotional attachment to her. In other words, he felt nothing for her.]]
** Also, according to Zhorrid, as a young girl he had her attend intense singing lessons. When she gave a public performance she sang until her throat was damaged and she could no longer sing anymore. She then saw her father smile and soon after was made his apprentice.
* AGodAmI: Acts like he's some sort of higher being than everyone else.
* [[spoiler:ClimaxBoss]]
* CoolMask
* DifferentAsNightAndDay: While Jadus is emotionless and calculating, his daughter Darth Zhorrid is a FauxAffablyEvil CloudCuckooLander.
* EnigmaticMinion: Nobody knows much about him, not even his Sith colleagues. In fact, he was uninterested in concerning himself with the squabbles and power struggles so common among his people, instead focusing his influence on the Imperial Intelligence network. Couple that with his tendency to contract outsiders who had earned their own reputations for intelligence missions rather than other Sith, and he's inadvertently fostered a sense of unease and distrust among his peers.
* EvilBrit
* [[spoiler:FakingTheDead]]
* KilledOffForReal: Supposedly dies from a terrorist attack. His daughter replaces him as a member of the Dark Council.
* KneelBeforeZod: Orders the Agent to kneel before him. Defiance comes with a dose of Force Lightning.
* [[spoiler:TheManBehindTheMan]]: [[spoiler:To the Eagle.]]
* [[spoiler:OffingTheOffspring]]: [[spoiler:If the Agent sides with him, the Agent is ordered to kill Zhorrid so Jadus can reclaim his seat on the Dark Council.]]
* TheSpymaster
* TheStoic: He never shows a single sign of emotion.
* [[spoiler:TalkingTheMonsterToDeath]]: [[spoiler:The Agent can convince him that his plan is doomed for failure, upon which [[KnowWhenToFoldEm he'll willingly give up on his own terms]] and states that he now both [[WorthyOpponent despises and respects you.]]]]
* {{Ubermensch}}: "Herald of a new era." [[spoiler:This new era is one in which all Imperial citizens are united through terror.]]
* [[spoiler:XanatosGambit: Jadus pulls one off on the Agent at the climax of Chapter 1. Jadus has half the codes to his super weapon, and the Agent has the other half. If the Agent refuses to enter his codes, the weapons will fire randomly and kill millions. If the Agent enters his codes to disarm the weapon, Jadus will then have the codes and simply kill the Agent and reactivate the weapon. Either way, Jadus wins, unless the Agent can figure out how to TakeAThirdOption.]]

!'''The Eagle'''

An anti-Imperial terrorist who was considered to be of little consequence by Imperial Intelligence until his organization destroyed the flag ship of Darth Jadus, killing the Dark Councilor and over 3,000 people who were on board the ship. The Agent's first task upon being made a Cipher Agent is to destroy his organization. Voiced by Simon Templeman.

* BigBad: Of the Agent's Chapter I.
* [[spoiler:DefectorFromDecadence]]: [[spoiler:He used to be an Imperial figher pilot, until the loss of his comrades during the war made him grow to hate the Empire.]]
* EvilBrit
* InTheHood: His costume for his public broadcasts is the same type of hood that sneaky enemy types wear.
* [[spoiler:TakingYouWithMe]]: [[spoiler:He uses a detonator to blow himself up after being defeated. The Agent is unharmed, but is knocked out for a few hours.]]
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn]]: [[spoiler:To Darth Jadus]]

!'''Ardun Kothe'''

A 54 year old human spymaster [[spoiler:and former Jedi]] for the Strategic Information Service, the Republic's counterpart to Imperial Intelligence. He specializes in converting enemy agents into friends and creating subversion and rebellion. Much of his past is unknown, as is how he came to lead an SIS unit. The Republic believes he is the key to winning the war, and Imperial Intelligence dispatches the Agent to ensure they aren't right.

* ApologeticAttacker: He apologizes to the the Agent for his actions and even states he hopes he'll be held accountable some day.
* TheAtoner: Someday. For now he has a war to win. [[spoiler:If you let him go, then he decides to become one anyway.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: Kothe sees his actions as this.
* NoPlaceForMeThere: Even though he believes he's incapable of living up the standards of the [[spoiler:Jedi Order]], he still fights for it.
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn: To the Star Cabal. If he ever got his hands on the Shadow Arsenal, Ardun would end up starting the war he's trying to prevent. The Agent is free to point out the glaring flaw in his plan - and is apparently the first one to do so.[[hottip:*:The Empire's Sith rulers already consider Imperials (and each other) expendable. The mere threat of citybusters over Dromund Kaas and Korriban won't impress them, and certainly won't be a deterrent to war. But if Ardun responds to his bluff being called by actually using the Shadow Arsenal, it will whip the Sith into a killing frenzy. Either way, the Star Cabal wins.]]]]
* VillainHasAPoint: The Empire really is evil and must be stopped. [[spoiler:After the climax of Act I, his argument has quite a bit of weight.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He seem to view himself as this. [[spoiler: but he is judging himself by the rigid standards of the Jedi Order.]] Compared to some of the people the Agent meets he's really not that bad.
* WorthyOpponent: Imperial Intelligence views him as this, which is why they sent The Agent after him in the first place. [[spoiler:If you tell him that you've been waiting to fight him, he admits that he feels the same way.]]

!'''Hunter'''

The codename of a member of Ardun Kothe's SIS cell. Hunter is a ruthless agent who has a bizarre hatred for Cipher Nine.

* [[spoiler:TheDragon]]: [[spoiler:He's the enforcer of the Star Cabal.]]
** [[spoiler:DragonInChief]]: [[spoiler:He's the only member of the Star Cabal that the Agent gets to interact with for an extended period of time.]]
** [[spoiler:DragonTheirFeet]]: [[spoiler:You fight him after you've killed or arranged the arrests of most of the Star Cabal's inner circle.]]
* [[spoiler:FinalBoss]]: Of the Agent's class quest.
* FoeYay: Some of his taunting of the Agent borders on flirting. [[spoiler:Male Agents get the chance to call her out on it and can even kiss her.]]
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:The Star Cabal denied her the chance to develop her own identity. "Hunter" was what resulted when she tried.]]
* [[spoiler:GracefulLoser]]
* HandsomeLech
* {{Jerkass}}
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:Is actually the enforcer of the Star Cabal.]]
* [[spoiler:SamusIsAGirl]]
* TheSociopath
* TokenEvilTeammate: To Kothe. Not only is he by far the most ruthless member, [[spoiler:unlike the rest of the cell, he has no qualms about brainwashing the Agent.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Tykebomb}}]]
* WorthyOpponent: Sees the Agent as this.

!'''Watcher X'''

A product of an Imperial eugenics program. The individual codenamed Watcher X was a member of Imperial Intelligence until he was deemed unstable and sent to the Empire's Shadow Town prison on Nar Shadaa. He is ordered to help the Agent with their business on Nar Shadaa. Voiced by Nicholas Boulton.

* BookEnds: [[spoiler:If you choose to prevent his escape, he begins your final confrontation by saying aloud your analysis of the situation. He did the same thing when you first met him.]]
* ChekhovsBoomerang: [[spoiler:Watcher X himself, but also the implant he gives The Agent toward the end of the Nar Shaddaa mission becomes very important again in Chapter 2.]]
* CreepyMonotone
* DesignerBabies: He, along with Watcher Two, were the result of the Empire's eugenics program.
* EvilBrit
* EvilCounterpart: To Watcher Two, as they are both graduates of the same eugenics program and serve as the Agent's MissionControl
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:If the Agent asks if anyone else has ever recieved conditioning similar to Watcher X's before, he'll cryptically say yes then change the subject. This becomes important in Chapter 2.]]
* GoneHorriblyRight: The Empire wanted to genetically engineer the perfect Watcher who could see connections and predict outcomes no one else could. It worked just a bit too well resulting in a paranoid sociopath.
* {{Jerkass}}
* ProperlyParanoid: [[spoiler:Everything he says about Imperial Intelligence techniques for controlling their own agents and how agents always end up like him turns out to be true.]]
* [[spoiler:SpiritAdvisor]]
* TheStoic
* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: On Nar Shadaa.

!'''Darth Zhorrid'''

The daughter of Darth Jadus, Zhorrid is insane even by the standards of the Sith. She succeeds her father as a Dark Councillor after his sudden assassination.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The only reasons she's on the Dark Council is because the other Councilors believed that she knew Jadus' secrets. When it becomes apparent that she doesn't, she loses all of her political clout. Even Keeper, who makes a habit of not judging the Sith, is not afraid to call her insane.
* TheCaligula
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: A dark version of this trope.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Though it's clear that their relationship is strained at best.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Apparently thinks of the Agent as her friend, or at least her [[TheDragon Dragon]].
* GlasgowGrin
* WeHaveReserves: She sends her bodyguards to kill the Agent upon their first meeting as a test of the Agent's strength.

!!Bounty Hunter
[[folder: Bounty Hunter & Companions]]

!'''The Bounty Hunter'''

''"The only law in this galaxy is the one a man makes for himself. The Sith may say otherwise, but even the Empire's reach has limits. That's why they hire bounty hunters. If you've earned a death mark, we'll be seeing each other... real soon. Don't let it go to your head, though. To me, you're just another job."''

A freelance gun for hire who attracted the attention of a legendary retired bounty hunter named Braden, the Bounty Hunter's story begins with gaining entry into the Great Hunt, a deadly competition of the galaxy's greatest bounty hunters organized by the Mandalorians, then entering the competition. The male Bounty Hunter is voiced by Tom Spackman. The female Bounty Hunter is voiced by GreyDelisle.

* BadassNormal: No Force sensitivity here, just moxie and a lot of equipment.
* BountyHunter: Of course.
* BringItBackAlive: Occasionally asked to bring in the target alive if possible, via carbonite freeze ray.
* ConsummateProfessional: The neutral Bounty Hunter.
* ContinuityNod: On Hutta, you get the chance to [[CountingToThree slowly count to three]] before blasting a Rodian giving you attitude. Just like [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Calo Nord's]] EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Most characters are skeptical of the Bounty Hunter's skill early on, but this disappears as the Bounty Hunter builds a reputation.
* {{Expy}}: The Powertech is Boba Fett, while the Mercenary is Jango Fett.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: The Bounty Hunter
** TheLancer: Torian Cadera
** TheSmartGuy: Gault Rennow
** TheBigGuy: Skadge
** TheChick: Mako
** TagalongKid[=/=]TeamPet: Blizz
* GlorySeeker: The Bounty Hunter's core motivation.
* GunsAkimbo: The Mercenary advanced class grants this.
* GutturalGrowler: If male.
* HarmlessFreezing: On Dromund Kaas, the Bounty Hunter received a carbonite freeze ray to take marks alive.
* HitmanWithAHeart: The light-side Bounty Hunter.
* TheHunterBecomesTheHunted: The Bounty Hunter has to draw out their target on Nar Shaddaa, a feared assassin, by making the target come after the Bounty Hunter.
* ItsPersonal: [[spoiler:Janarus earns himself a spot on the Bounty Hunter's shit list after decrying him/her publicly.]]
* KillItWithFire: Has a flamethrower. Powertechs in particular gain a wide range of flame-based attacks.
* LightningBruiser: Powertechs. Heavy armor, shields, and can use their jetpack to rocket into combat.
* NoFameNoWealthNoService: The Bounty Hunter's reception by the nobles on Alderaan.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Can certainly be played like this.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Light-side options often emphasize a sense of honor, and the Bounty Hunter can join the Mandalorians.
* PsychoForHire: The dark-side Bounty Hunter.
* PunchClockVillain: Depending on player choices, the Bounty Hunter can repeatedly affirm that their relationship with the Empire is strictly business.
* {{Shoryuken}}: And rocket-powered, no less.
* StuffBlowingUp: Explosives of all kinds, but mostly rockets, are a staple of the class.
* YoungGun: Can come across as this on Hutta and Dromund Kaas, but the Bounty Hunter comes across as an experienced professional afterwards.

!'''Mako'''
The first chronological companion character for the Bounty Hunter, Mako is a human female hired by Braden to provide intel and tech for those participating in the Great Hunt. Romance option for male Bounty Hunters. Mechanically, she's the Bounty Hunter's healer companion. Voiced by Lacey Chabert.

* ArtEvolution: Her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1a8mlxCaRAI earlier appearance]] in a story preview, compared to how she [[http://darthhater.com/media/gallery/developer-dispatch-companions-dissection-/image/12143/#main_leaderboard currently]] looks.
* BattleCouple: Romance option.
* BountyHunter: Seems to regard herself as such by Tatooine.
* TheChick: In comparison to the Bounty Hunter's other companions, Mako is by far the most concerned with being a good person in an often murky career, and generally approves of light-side actions.
* ConsummateProfessional: Her take on bounty hunting, overlapping with HitmanWithAHeart. Mako strives to be an honorable and professional bounty hunter, sparing those who turn out to be innocent or when the contractor lies.
* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend: She'll say this about her childhood friend Anuli on Nar Shadaa if the Bounty Hunter keeps teasing her about him.
* HollywoodCyborg: Has a suite of cybernetic enhancements, notably a Holonet uplink in her brain.
* TheMedic: Sort of. She's the Bounty Hunter's healer companion, but her medical skills have no bearing on the plot.
* TheSmartGuy: Girl in this case.
* StreetUrchin: Grew up on the streets of Nar Shaddaa.
* SwordAndGun: Her weapons are a pistol and a vibroknife, though she doesn't use them simultaneously.
* TeenGenius: It's not clear if she's actually a teenager, but she's certainly young and an expert with technology. Braden calls her a little genius in her introduction.
* WontTakeYesForAnAnswer: Immediately grant her request to be a companion, and she'll continue pleading her case for a good few seconds.
* WrenchWench: In charge of the Bounty Hunter's technical support
* YoungGun: More relaxed than usual for this trope, but her introduction cutscene makes it pretty clear Mako wants to prove herself a capable bounty hunter as well.

!'''Gault Rennow'''

A Devaronian companion acquired on Tatooine, Gault is a professional smuggler, con artist, and general scoundrel. [[spoiler:Real name is Tyresius Lokai, a target of the Great Hunt. He fakes his own death and joins the Bounty Hunter rather than continue to live the life of a hunted man.]] Mechanically, he's the Bounty Hunter's ranged damage companion. Voiced by DaranNorris.

* TheBarnum
* BreakTheHaughty: How he ends up on Tatooine and eventually in the Bounty Hunter's retinue.
* ButThouMust: [[spoiler: There is no way to dispose him for real, you will end up RecruitingTheCriminal and FakingTheDead with him.]]
* CombatPragmatist: Disdains notions of rules or a fair fight. HonorBeforeReason is a really quick way to annoy him.
* ConMan: And good enough at it, among other things, to have earned a sizable price on his head. His personal quest involves helping him con some water farmers.
* CrazyPrepared: Escapes the [[TheBaroness Lady of Pain's]] {{Mooks}} because [[spoiler:one of his horns actually is a grenade.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: As per LoveableRogue tradition, he does like his snarking.
-->'''Bounty Hunter''': Jedi are all talk.\\
'''Gault Rennow''': No, I'm all talk. Jedi masters are something else entirely.
* DevilInPlainSight: Figuratively and literally.
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: Despite the fact that from her perspective, he just abandoned her, Hylo Vizz forgives him relatively easily. It remains to be seen if this will lead to them becoming lovers again, though.]]
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:How he escapes his past life and the bounty on him is collected]].
* FriendlySniper: Rather upbeat and cheerful, and uses a sniper rifle as his main weapon.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has one horn broken off. See CrazyPrepared.
* HornedHumanoid
* LovableRogue: Clearly thinks of himself as such, though YourMileageMayVary.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: One of his main motivations.
* [[spoiler:RecruitingTheCriminal]]: How he joins the party.

!'''Torian Cadera'''

A Mandalorian warrior and companion of the Bounty Hunter, recruited on Taris. Romance option for female Bounty Hunters. Mechanically, he's the class's melee damage companion. Voiced by JohnnyYongBosch.

* BattleCouple: Potentially with the female Bounty Hunter.
* TheBigGuy: Fills this role in the Bounty Hunter's retinue, at least until Skadge comes along...
* {{Expy}}: With his backstory and personality, he's essentially a Mandalorian [[StarTrek Worf]].
* GlorySeeker: If anything, even more prominently than most Mandalorians.
* KillItWithFire: Almost all of his abilities involve his flamethrower.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Oh, yes.

!'''Blizz'''

A Jawa companion of the Bounty Hunter class, recruited on Hoth. Mechanically, he's the Bounty Hunter's ranged tank companion.

* BadassAdorable: He's a Jawa. He's a ''tank''. He wields a ''rocket launcher''.
* BreakTheCutie: His backstory. [[spoiler: It started with him leaving Tatooine with a salvager crew to find adventure, and ended up with him enslaved by space pirates on Hoth.]]
* CuriousAsAMonkey: Yes.
* GadgeteerGenius: He's a Jawa, and lives up to their reputation as experts with technology.
-->'''Bounty hunter PC:''' I've never met a jawa who couldn't turn tech to scrap in ten seconds flat.\\
'''Blizz:''' Blizz do that all time too!
* GlacierWaif: For a given value of waif, and mechanically, Blizz is a brick wall.
* ImprovisedZipline: He uses one in the field to ''charge into combat.''
* KidAppealCharacter: Has a lot of this.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: This little guy is one of the Bounty Hunter's ''tanking'' companions.
* StuffBlowingUp: Carries a salvaged rocket launcher.
* TagAlongKid: Comes across as this. He's not actually a kid, but he's an optimistic and eternally curious Jawa picked up by a professional bounty hunter.
* YouNoTakeCandle

!'''Skadge'''

A male Houk that worked under Nem'ro the Hutt, Skadge is a companion character for the Bounty Hunter and acquired on Belsavis. He was betrayed by his Hutt boss at one point in his life. He has the symbol of the Black Sun on his armor. Mechanically, he's the Bounty Hunter's melee tank companion. Voiced by Neil Kaplan.

* TheBigGuy
* TheBrute: His species is reputed for raw strength and short tempers. In fact, their large size and physical prowess are only rivaled by the Wookiees.
* PsychoForHire: Yes.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
!'''Braden'''

Braden's long and storied career has never quite reached the heights of notoriety it deserved. For more than twenty-five years, Braden has claimed hundreds of bounties for clients ranging from the infamous crime lord Nok Drayen to generals in the Republic military and Jedi Masters with no one else to turn to. With his glory days behind him and his career in decline, Braden is looking for one last chance to shine before passing the torch to a new generation of hunters and retiring in some quiet corner of the galaxy.

He is your first supporting character and is trying to get the Bounty Hunter into the Great Hunt. [[spoiler: He's killed by Tarro Blood right after you defeat your first target.]]

* CoolOldGuy: He is a retired Bounty Hunter that also took into his care Mako, and now, the Bounty Hunter.
* ParentalSubstitute: To Mako.

!'''Tarro Blood'''

The son of Alderaanian nobility, Tarro Blood renounced his privileged existence as the heir to a minor lordship in favor of pursuing greater glory and fame as a galaxy-renowned Mandalorian mercenary. Leaving his past behind and taking on a new dramatic moniker, Blood was able to prove that he was no pretender after years of training under a famed Mandalorian champion. Under the guidance of this exceptional tutor, Blood became a feared warrior and the favorite to claim victory in the next Great Hunt. Unfortunately, Tarro Blood's characteristic arrogance and sudden rise to prominence rubbed his competition the wrong way. The other Mandalorians in the competition made it their mission to ensure that he never came close to claiming victory. The resulting defeat nearly cost Blood his life, in addition to his pride, and he has remained away from the public eye for nearly a decade.

He is the main antagonist for the Bounty Hunter in Act 1.

Voiced by FredTatasciore

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Yup. From the start he keeps telling you how unworthy you are to the Great Hunt.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: He is a Mandalorian after all. [[spoiler: You would think so. Actually, Mandalore himself tells you how much he despises Tarro Blood for his cowardice and cheating tricks. He and his lackeys are called out on it by Hedarr Soongh, resulting in the former's death, and you killing the cowards.]]

!'''Crysta Markon'''

She is the Bounty Hunter's handler in the Great Hunt. She is quite friendly, and actually flirts with the male Bounty Hunter the first time she meets him.

* RunningGag: She keeps not giving enough information about ANY of the Great Hunt's targets.

!'''Lieutenant Major Pirrell'''

Depraved, unscrupulous and conniving, Lieutenant Major Pirrell is an ambitious but cowardly Imperial officer determined to advance up Balmorra's chain of command at any cost. Pirrell's service record in the Imperial Navy stands as a bland testament to the inevitability of a middling bureaucracy to exist anywhere; no matter where in the galaxy he was stationed, Pirrell always managed to find a position closest to the most influential members of command and farthest from any of the actual fighting.

He is your contractor on Balmorra, seeking to improve his status and position by [[spoiler: using the Bounty Hunter to stop his military rivals achieving success with their's duties. In the end, Admiral Ivernus, the one that he is trying to impress, actually calls him out on this and tries to kill him, at the same time his lover is revealed to be the other Bounty Hunter in the Great Hunt seeking to get the bounty.]]

* CatGirl: His lover is a Cathar.
* [[spoiler: YouHaveFailedMe: It's what Admiral Ivernus says when he discovers Pirrell's plan and confront him about it.]]

!'''The Great Hunt Grand Champions'''

Bloodworthy, Human, The Defenestrator, droid, and Jewl'a Nightbringer, Zabrak.

They are the winners of the Great Hunt, mighty Bounty Hunters that get access to the Blacklist. [[spoiler: Bloodworthy becomes your contact in Act II. He gets later killed alongside The Defenestrator and Jewl'a Nightbringer in the end of Act II by a Jedi and a Republic squad that strikes your party.]]

* ActionGirl: Jule the Nightbringer. You don't see it, but you can only be this as one of the champions of the great hunt.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: It seems many Bounty Hunters are like this...Jewl'a Nightbringer certanly is. When she won the Great Hunt, she took the opportunity to insult the Mandalorians. Bloodworthy on the other hand is quite diplomatic with the Bounty Hunter.
* BadassAutomaton: The Defenestrator.
* {{Expy}}: The Defenestrator to IG-88.

!'''Mandalore the Vindicated'''

A Mandalorian male, Artus eventually became the Grand Champion of the Great Hunt, and challenged Mandalore to a duel in the gladiatorial arenas on the planet Geonosis; he successfully killed Mandalore the Lesser and took the title of Mandalore the Vindicated. He began to consolidate his power over the Mandalorian clans, destroying an uprising led by Jicoln Cadera, who believed the Mandalorians should support the Republic. After defeating Cadera's faction, Artus ensured that his Mandalorians remained in the services of the Sith Empire.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* BigBadDuumvirate: The current leader of the Mandalorians, Artus remained allied with the Sith Empire and the Chiss Ascendancy.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy
* ScaryBlackMan
