Golden Age of the Sith
A young, Force-sensitive hyperspace explorer. Along with her brother she attempts to chart new lanes of hyperspace, a very dangerous but potentially lucrative job. Unfortunately, they've fallen on hard times and their last-ditch effort results in them discovering Korriban.
Ace Pilot: Being a hyperspace explorer requires a good deal of skill.
Action Girl: Although she doesn't have formal Jedi training, she does hold her own with a lightsaber in battle.
Cassandra Truth: Nobody but Empress Teta is willing to listen to her warnings about the impending invasion. Granted, she was on the run from the law when she left in the first place.
Hot-Blooded: Apart from being a hyperspace explorer (an insanely risky business), she's brash and impulsive and doesn't look before leaping.
Refusal of the Call: She and her brother could have been Jedi, but they preferred to be hyperspace explorers.
Jori's brother. When they're captured by the Sith, Gav is separated and unable to return with her to the Republic. He winds up siding with the Sith and is taken as an apprentice by Naga Sadow, although he doesn't seem to actually fall to the dark side. He ends up fighting his sister when they meet again.
Big Brother Instinct: Part of why he stays with the Sith, believing that he'll be able to protect Jori that way.
My God, What Have I Done?: He realizes that he's working for the bad guys when Aarba spits in his face and the Massassi soldiers kill him for it.
Obliviously Evil: He actually commands part of Naga Sadow's forces and leads an attack on Cinnagar, but he doesn't realize that the Sith are the bad guys until he witnesses the destruction firsthand.
The Pollyanna: He's always convinced that the next hyperspace run will bring riches even though none of them have before. Even when he and Jori are locked up by the Sith, Gav says it could be worse.
Redemption Equals Death: He turns against Naga Sadow and gives Jori instructions on how to stop the Sith, but he falls into a fatal trap by Naga Sadow and his last words are a goodbye to Jori.
Too Dumb to Live: It's hard not to want to strangle Gav when it literally takes his kindly hutt friend being gruesomely slaughtered in front of him to realize he's on the wrong side, when Naga hasn't even been trying to conceal the fact he was a bloodthirsty nutjob in front of him. Also, trusting Naga Sadow to board his crippled flagship was an idiotic move of epic proportions.
Wide-Eyed Idealist: He's even more idealistic than Jori is, being the more optimistic of the two of them and unable to see how bad the Sith are. Naga Sadow openly gloats about wanting 'fresh blood' and tricks Gav into blowing up Ludo Kressh's flagship and Gav still doesn't get it. He also thinks it's a great idea to board Naga's crippled flagship when Naga asks for a 'chat' with him.
A Sith Lord who, after Marka Ragnos' death, became one of the two pretenders to the title of Dark Lord of the Sith. He believes that the Sith Empire has grown decadent and wants new conquests.
Big Bad: Of "Golden Age of the Sith" and "Fall of the Sith Empire"
The Chessmaster: The cover of issue 1 of "Fall of the Sith Empire" is him controlling puppets of Gav and Jori.
General Failure: Yes, Naga, it's a brilliant idea to entrust the invasion of one of the most important targets to a guy who isn't a Sith, has no battle experience, and has no idea you're actually the bad guy. Even this aside, the way Naga manages to lose literally every battle in the war is sort of impressive.
Manipulative Bastard: He pretends to be a friend of Gav and Jori so they'll reveal the location of Republic planets.
Villain Protagonist: Much of the story of "Golden Age" and "Fall" is told from his perspective.
A Sith Lord, and the other pretender to the title of Dark Lord of the Sith after Marka Ragnos' death. He believes that the Sith Empire should be kept as it is, and avoid conquering new worlds. Turns out he was right.
The Cassandra: Ludo is basically completely, one hundred percent right about Naga being the worst thing for the Sith Empire.
Undying Loyalty: For a Sith, the guy worships the ground Marka Ragnos, the previous dark lord, walked on.
Knights Of The Old Republic
Introduced in "The Saga of Nomi Sunrider," Nomi begins as a Jedi widow who reluctantly undergoes training to protect herself and her young daughter. She has the rare gift of Battle Meditation, which she uses to turn enemy forces against each other. Eventually, she overcomes her misgivings to become one of the Jedi Order's greatest Knights.
Action Mom: There is more than one battle where she's actually carrying Vima around.
Bare Your Midriff: Her outfit while training under Thon. She switches to more typical Jedi garb later on.
Barrier Warrior: Her Battle Meditation. She can also lead the Jedi in creating a literal barrier known as the "Wall of Light." Unlike the typical Barrier Warrior, she's quite good in a normal fight as well.
Character Development: She goes from a housewife uninterested in her Force potential to the head of the Jedi Order.
Chekhov's Skill: While she's learning about her Battle Meditation, she's told that it can be used to cut someone off from the Force. She uses this on Ulic Qel-Droma after he kills his brother.
Determined Widow: Her husband Andur is killed by thugs. She responds (with the encouragement of his ghost) by becoming a Jedi.
Distress Ball: She gets knocked out through Force combat just as Ulic is walking by so he can be impressed by the "beautiful fallen Jedi."
Does Not Like Lightsabers: Mainly because she doesn't like the thought of having to kill people, but she learns to accept it.
Refused The Call: She tried to do this, not wanting the life of a warrior, but she comes to accept it.
Master Arca Jeth
Arca Jeth is a Jedi Master who oversees the sector containing Onderon while he trains the Qel-Droma brothers and Tott Doneeta. Though renowned for his wisdom, he misjudges how much his apprentices can handle and is caught off-guard by the strength of the Naddists on Onderon.
Sink or Swim Mentor: Sending your pupils to solve an ancient ethnic conflict would be difficult enough, but he expected them to handle the Dark Side without even telling them that it was a thing. (He admits that the second part was expecting a bit too much.)
Spirit Advisor: Long enough to tell Ulic that he has more to do than freeze to death.
Arca Jeth's favorite apprentice and Cay's brother. Although he's an excellent fighter and a good man, he's also impulsive and somewhat arrogant, on top of being quick to anger. After a certain tragedy, Ulic's plan to infiltrate the Krath from within quickly becomes a genuine fall to the Dark Side. He also strikes up a romance with Nomi Sunrider during the Great Sith Wars.
Ulic Qel-Droma's brother and fellow apprentice of Arca Jeth. Cay is very idealistic and shares a strong bond with Ulic, and it's very hard for him to accept Ulic's fall. He's also a close friend to Nomi and very good with machines.
Speaks Fluent Animal: It proves to be a great help in the jungles of Onderon. He's able to become an "honorary boma."
A Cathar who trains under Master Vodo Sisok-Baas, along with her mate Crado and Exar Kun. Both of them turn to the dark side and become her enemies during the Great Sith War, leaving her angry and bitter.
Hot-Blooded: Surprisingly enough, she's a hot-blooded Jedi. This later puts her in danger of falling to the dark side.
Revenge: After the war's end, she fixates on bringing Ulic Qel-Droma to punishment, even though he wasn't directly responsible. Even more ironic is the fact that her motivation (as well as her excuses) are pretty much identical to Ulic's own quest for revenge against Satal Keto.
She Who Fights Monsters: Her quest to bring "justice" to Ulic for serving the Sith and (indirectly) killing her mate Crado brings her towards the dark side.
The daughter of Nomi and Andur Sunrider. She's a very young child when the Great Sith War breaks out and spends her time with Jedi Masters, knights, and battles. Ten years later, she's ready to train as a Jedi herself, but has a hard time getting enough of her mother's time to do it.
Wise Beyond Their Years: She decides to seek out Ulic Qel-Droma as her master and seems to be the only person among the Jedi who remembers that Ulic had once been a hero to them.
When You Coming Home, Mom?: Her mother spends most of her time managing the Order and continually puts off Vima's training, so Vima looks for her own master.
Vodo Sisok-Baas' most powerful and worrying apprentice. From the start, he was obsessed with gaining more knowledge, particularly knowledge about the Sith. He seeks out the ghost of Freedon Nadd and soon builds an army to lead against the Republic.
And I Must Scream: His disembodied spirit is trapped in Yavin IV's ruins for four thousand years.
Obviously Evil: In part because Ambition Is Evil for a Jedi—the racism against his fellow apprentices, and being highly eager to learn about the Sith, it's clear early on that he's going to fall.
The Paragon Always Rebels: When he turns to the dark side, he entices a good number of Jedi into joining him and killing their own masters.
Training from Hell: Freedon Nadd's spirit collapsed a building on Exar just to make sure he would commit to the dark side.
A rotten fruit on Empress Teta's family tree. Bored with being aristocrats, he and his cousin start dabbling in "Sith magic" and set themselves up as warlords, heading up a cult they call the Krath. Although he has ambitions of conquest, Satal is no match for a real Dark Jedi.
Bad Boss: He uses the Force to hypnotize his fighter pilots and make them do suicide runs on the Republic ships.
Hoist by His Own Petard: He injects Ulic with a poison that makes him susceptible to the dark side's influence. A few issues later, Ulic has outclassed Satal enough that Alemma transfers her loyalty to Ulic, and the Ulic kills Satal, which makes him a perfect ally for Exar Kun.
Manipulative Bitch: She manipulates Ulic by staging an assassination attempt for him to "save" her from. She was also well-aware that he was The Mole and didn't tell Satal because she thought it would be a fun challenge.
Master of Illusion: She specializes in creating images of hideous monsters and ships with the Force in order to distract her enemies, although there are some instances where it seems like what she creates has the power to inflict physical harm.
Smug Snake: Like her cousin, she vastly overestimates her abilities. Exar Kun tosses her aside like a rag doll when he shows up.
The Starscream: During the invasion of Coruscant, she betrays Ulic so she can be the sole ruler of the Krath.
