*** A related piece of brilliance . When you hit ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'''s Alderaan level, you learn that Trask Ulgo was a [[BlueBlood very high-ranking]] member of Alderaanian nobility. In particular, his house's [[PlanetOfHats hat]] was [[ProudWarriorRace military service]], and Trask was one of their ''finest'' warriors. Who better to be the handler (and potential assassin) of a mind-wiped Sith Lord?

* Carth, your first "real" party member, frequently states that he doesn't trust you, finds your placement on the ''Endar Spire'' suspicious, finds what the Jedi are doing suspicious, and frequently gets angry about what he perceives as getting the runaround. He comes off as a total Jerkass and whiner...until TheReveal comes out. Turns out he was ''dead right'' about ALL of his suspicions, just not in the way he expected! The comics and the second game add a few more layers. He encountered a Jedi coverup before, as he helped Zanye Carrick escape from the Covenant. In the second game, Disciple is reporting directly to Carth. Given Carth's trust issues, Mical's reservations (even Exile, his childhood hero, has to be careful when prying info out of him), and how important the ''Ebon Hawk'' is, there's likely some strong history between Mical and Carth, meaning Carth may also know more about the Jedi than he let on.

Factor in that he's probably an untrained Sensitive, and this gets even ''more'' interesting.



* One of my favorite part of KOTOR was the the use of Charisma skill that can be uber helpful especially if you want to persuade other characters and [=NPCs=] on your ideas or stances on certain morales. Now, my favorite class is the Soldier (yes, very generic I know) and at first I was kind of confused why the Scoundrel class gets plus points on the charisma ability, but then I realized: of course they would! After all, Scoundrels are GenreSavvy and cunning individuals who are quick-witted and perceptively street smart. Being charismatic is practically their second nature!

* Since the release of the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic, some have compared the original two games and the TOR to the Original Trilogy movies, with KOTOR as A New Hope, KOTOR 2 as The Empire Strikes Back, and TOR as Return of the Jedi. However, the first game itself could be a combination of all three movies itself!. Let's look at the beginning of the game, a good guy ship gets attacked by the bad guys in order to find a particularly important young woman. The heroes then escaped on an escape pod to the planet below, and proceeded to train to be a Jedi. (Also, a planet got destroyed) The second arc involves the good guys travelling around the galaxy and being pursued by a Sith Lord, got captured and proceeded to escape but had to leave someone behind, and a reveal of a terrible truth. [[spoiler: The infamous LukeIAmYourFather in ESB and you are Revan in KOTOR.]] And the final act is a discovery of a superweapon threatening to dominate the galaxy, an epic space battle that didn't go well with the good guys at first, until the main hero went inside the space station to confront the bad guys and do something to turn the tide of the battle, and that something involves [[spoiler: the redemption of the hero's loved one]]. Basically, Knights of the Old Republic is all three Original Trilogy movies put together.

* So, you decided to be a good guy and help the old, rightful wookie chieftain rise back to power. Finally, a truly independent leader to stop all of slave trading with the corrupt Czerka Corporation!.. By killing every non-wookie in said corporation's colony. Even though the slave masters got their comeuppance, it shudders to think about what happened to the peaceful personnel and merchants (including optional quest-givers!). Not to mention that Czerka will not be very happy to hear about their old trade partners destroying the colony, and will probably send more troops to get revenge on the wookies - this time fully enslaving the whole tribe instead of trying to buy slaves from the chieftain!

** Here's another: Just what exactly did Revan do to the Jedi that he was kidnapping to places like Dxun, Korriban, and Lehon? You know, the ones he wanted to "break"?

* You can use Force Choke while being armoured, just like Vader.

* One that stretches to the film era (and possibly puts KOTOR into Disney's continuity); in Film/StarWarsRogueOne it's the ''Taris'' senator, Tynnra Pamlo, arguing loudest that a rebellion against the Empire would be hopeless. Considering what happened when they defied Malak, and the eventual destruction of Alderaan, her argument wasn't without merit.

*** And if they aren't broken, where did they go? Just killed, shoved in a capsule, and used as a power source for the Star Forge?

** The troopers on Taris upper levels are possibly ''not'' TooDumbToLive and taking care of their own hide. A solo grunt Sith trooper (and maybe two of them, if they're patrolling near each other) might have second thoughts trying to bring in a known ''Jedi'' being escorted by two bodyguards (i.e. Carth and the PlayerCharacter) because the trooper knows s/he'll just get killed. The trooper can call for backup, but that'll alert their superior--and maybe even Darth Malak or Admiral Karath--that something is up, and the price for failure is execution so they'll die anyway after they somehow survive their encounter with the Jedi.

* When you and Carth are ribbing Bastila for being taken prisoner by a gang of ordinary thugs, she insists that she was weakened from using her battle meditation, and the without it, you might not have escaped. She wasn't using her abilities to help the Republic forces on the ship. ''She was using them to ensure that you landed unharmed''. Which you did... in the Upper City, right next to a disused apartment complex that sees only occasional Sith patrols, in easy walking distance from a Republic-sympathizing doctor. With a decorated military vet who's got the skill and experience to keep you alive and hidden, and the innate goodness to take care of your comatose butt for days, despite his misgivings.

*** Adding on to Carth's characterization: his fatherhood is fairly consistent throughout the game. There is one quest in which the son of a wealthy Dantooine man is found dead, and all that his left from his corpse was his diary. The father offers 100 credits to take it off of you. You may either accept it, decline but choose to give it to him anyway, or extort an additional 100 out of it. If the last option is chosen, Carth will get utterly PISSED and berate you for taking advantage of a grieving father. Made all the more reasonable once you learn that he believes his own son to have died.
