WMG for the video game Knights of the Old Republic:
Revan is still alive, and is back to being Revan.Nobody knows what he went to do, so who is to say he didn't go to regain his memories, but Darth Revan took back over afterwords? He could be leading the new Sith. After all, who better to lead the new army of Sith but the greatest?
Kreia's Plan was not to kill the Force.Or at least that wasn't the only possible outcome. Kreia had been both a Sith and a Jedi, and hated both. The solution? Destroy them and create a new, stronger version of each. The Exile trains his/her crew to become the new Jedi Order, and by the end of the game, the old one is all dead, all killed at the hands of either Kreia or her pawn (you). Same with the Sith. Since she was part of both the old Jedi and the old Sith, the end of her plan has her dying. And if the plan fails, she just kills the Force.
The Vaklu Sergeant who says, "The loyalists in the bunker are contained," is Palpatine's distant ancestor.>_>
R2-D2 is T3-M4 in a new body four thousand years later.It happened to HK-47, at least in Star Wars: Galaxies, so we know that a droid AI could survive that long. And it would explain why R2's so quirky and creative; he's had four thousand years to craft a personality for himself. It's also why he stays around C-3PO, because he sees shades of HK-47 in him, and he wants a familiar figure in his life—after all, he's seen all his friends and acquaintances die around him. The Force had a special destiny for R2, passing from Revan's ownership, to the Exile's, and, after millenia, to Anakin Skywalker...and to his son.
Revan didn't avoid production centers to save The Republic, he did it to prevent his own ass from getting kicked latterYou are a pretty bad conqueror if you get toppled right after you finish your conquest after all.
Kreia was using her mind control abilities on everyone, player included, to make her plan work.This is pretty obvious just by paying attention to the plot. She hides right out in the open, and no one ever really notices or does anything about her. She joins up with the Exile, makes a Psychic Link between them, and suddenly the Exile becomes very open to her advice. Anyone she talks to (Atton, Mandalore, Hanharr, Tobin, Sion) ends up doing what she advises, even though a lot of them clearly hate her. You can ask her if she's manipulating you like this, and if you don't buy her denial she suddenly stops talking about it and you drop the subject. Now that I think about it, this actually makes too much sense to be a WMG.
Kreia is aware she is a videogame character or at least knows the game mechanics.It is pretty clear she realizes how experience points work. The page for A Wizard Did It notes that her desire to kill The Force is basically an attempt to kill the writers. She notes how little her removed hand effects her, in game mechanics for a pure caster the ability to dual wield is insignificant (The player can make good use of the additional stats boost crystals they can put in their lightsabers, but there are not enough crystals in the game to do it for anyone else).
Kreia is either an Anti-Villain or an Unchosen One in the series, and might just outclass Sidious at dejarik1. Think about it. That misplaced Reverend Mother knows an awful lot about the True Sith. In fact, she's the only one who knows anything about them at all. Perhaps she's one of them? 2. Revan is considered this mastermind of strategy, tactics, and manipulation...but look who trained Revan (probably from early childhood, considering the Order's policy at the time). If what she does — or tries to do — to your Exile is bad, imagine her with a VERY bright Force prodigy from the age of 5 to about the age of 20. 3. If there were anything about the Rakatans, the Star Forge, the True Sith, etc. in the Jedi archives, she would have been in prime position to steal and/or delete it. Then, turn it over to her prized pupil. 4. Canderous mentions that "The Sith" came to Mandalore the Indomitable with the offer of a battle to beat them all, essentially leading them into suicide. The Jedi Order splinters apart, and the Force is wounded in multiple places from all this. This sets into motion the Force wounds like Exile and Malachor, critical to Kreia's plan to wreck the Force. So, we have the Mandalorians betrayed by the Sith, the Jedi Order betraying its own lofty ideals, Revan betraying the Jedi Council. Exile betraying Revan by refusing to go along, Revan repaying the favor with a suicide mission to Malachor, the Council betraying Exile, and Revan betraying the Republic, taking a lot of guys like Saul and Atton along. That's one hell of a case of Chronic Backstabbing Disorder. And what is Kreia, but the self-described "Queen of Betrayal?" 5. Revan may have been trying to aid Kreia in this Force-wrecking mission.
Revan's "true personality" is a Dark Jedi, and the "canon ending" should be with him in charge of the Sith.Think about it for a moment. He's been mind raped by the Jedi. Many of his memories have been restored. The woman he's force bonded with (and the one who is his force guide and bond to the light side) has been corrupted. The Sith are winning. And now you can claim the Star Forge and finish your plans from the past. Revan isn't loyal to the Jedi, he's loyal to the future, to the survival of the races of the galaxy. Siding with the losing Jedi and Republic makes no sense, whereas seizing control of the Star Forge and using Bastila's Battle Meditation to get a quick, mostly painless victory is logical, practical and completely in line with what we know of Revan's personality from before the mind rape. Also, Darth Bastila is hot and completely loyal to you. What would you choose - black leather or starchy cotton and itchy wool?
Darth Sion is the crazy captain of the Icarus Ifrom Sunshine. Just look at him. He's got no skin, he's bald, he's a complete nutcase, and he picks people up by the throat. Clearly he survived falling into the Sun with EPIC FORCAGE, escaped, and joined the Sith Triumvirate.
Kreia ultimately succeeded. The Force has been dying a slow death for thousands of years.Compare the abilities and powers of the Jedi and Sith in the Knights of the Old Republic games to what they're successors can do in the movies 4000 years later. When the most powerfull Force users in the galaxy are capable of no more than level 2 Force lightning and some telekinesis, it tells you a lot about the state their batteries must be in.
Nihlus is actually The PyroEventually, after years of battle The Pyro figured out how to set things on fire with his mind, using The Force. Pyrokinesis requires a lot of force energy to use, so she takes to consuming entire planet's worth of life in order to try and sustain his ability. He doesn't use it in-game because she doesn't have enough force energy at that point.
Kreia is Arren Kae, the Jedi Master who was Revan's first and last teacherAn old theory, but should be here for posterity's sake. Kreia is also indirectly mentioned to be Revan's first and last teacher; she looks very similar to the Handmaiden, Arren Kae's daughter; Arren Kae was thought to have died at Malachor V with no body found (but surely No-One Could Have Survived That,) and the Jedi masters say they thought Kreia died at Malachor V, etc. An entire chapter of a Let's Play for this game is dedicated to pointing out a whole sequence of events practically done in the style of the offhand comments in the first game that turned out to be the hints for Revan's true nature; given Obsidian's usual style, it's pretty likely these are intentional.
Kreia is an incarnation of Ravel Puzzlewell.Old woman, poor eyesight who's a Blind Seer, sharp-tongued, Trickster Mentor, fond of the Breaking Speech, puzzles, riddles, and has a definitive 'bond' with the main character. Not to mention that both are created by Chris Avellone, who has claimed that incarnations of Ravel follow these general tendencies.
Kreia is not Arren KaeShe is Arren Kae's mother, and thus the Handmaiden's grandmother. (INSERT REASONINGS HERE)
The first game is Darth Revan's Dying Dream.The fight on Revan's flagship with Bastila and the Jedi striketeam is shown in Revan's visions, but we don't see any of the details of Revan being healed and revived. For Male Revan, Carth represents recovering from trauma, loyalty, and leadership without tyranny, Juhani represents the wish for love and the possibility of redemption, and Bastila represents goodness and compassion. For Female Revan, Carth represents love and its redemptive power, Juhani adds acceptance of and overcoming one's past choices, and Bastila represents the struggle inherent in living up to the Jedi ideal. For both genders of Revan, Jolee represents perspective and wisdom apart from the dictates of moral guardians, Canderous is the love of war as a challenge, creative outlet, and expression of mastery, Mission and Zaalbar represent friendship, loyalty, and resilience, Darth Bastila represents the emptiness of good intentions in the face of evil and resentment toward the Jedi order, and Darth Malak represents mastery, unconditional dominance, and betrayal by one's close associates
Carth Onasi is Force-Sensitive, but not trained
Like Revan and Bastila, Carth and Revan are Force-bonded
Kyle Katarn is the descendant of Revan and Bastila.Revan's alias after losing his memory was Kobet Katarn, and shortly before Revan's departure and imprisonment, he and Bastila Shan secretly got married and had a child. After Revan's imprisonment by the Sith Emperor, Bastila took care of Revan's son, Vaner Shan, whose descendants eventually took the "Katarn" surname after Revan's alias. Eventually, their family line led to the Jedi Master Tal—who, like Revan, had children who were sent into hiding—and even further still, Morgan and Kyle Katarn. This also explains how Kyle was so susceptible to the dark energy of the Sith temple on Dromund Kaas, which most likely contained the spirit of the Sith Emperor, who recognized Kyle as Revan's descendant and tried to corrupt him as he did Revan. Kyle was eventually rescued from the Sith Emperor's thrall by Mara Jade. After the dark side ending to Jedi Knight, Kyle—now the new Emperor—would take up his ancestor's mantle and proclaim himself the new Darth Revan.
A terentatek's death causes The End of the World as We Know It.When I heard Freyyr describe the terentatek as a creature only a few survived an encounter with to be able to describe and nobody having succeeded in killing, I braced myself for quite a tough fight, but then it went down rather easily. Ha, I thought smugly, some beast, I can't believe nobody killed it before me. And then I spent about half an hour battling with the terentatek-gas-cloud-causes-the-game-to-crash bug, finally having to give up and go down the dark side path with this quest. Apparently, in my version of the game noone was ever able to kill this terentatek because its death immediately obliterates that version of the universe where it happened.
The Player Character in the first game is constantly unconsciously using the Force to sway people's decisions.Of course these lightsaber-toting robe-wearing individuals are your slaves and definitely not Jedi. That makes perfect sense. Come on in!
Vrook is himself a Sith Lord.The fall of Dantooine shattered his mind and he fell to the dark side after the events of KOTOR, becoming a puppet master of the Jedi Council in KOTOR II.
The appearance of a Selkath on the video game box cover was the result of an error.Why would Malak and Bastila be on the cover alongside a random Selkath? Throughout the course of the game, you don't have any Selkath companions, nor are they extremely integral to the plot. The obvious reason is because someone wanted CARTH Onasi on the cover, and the artist misheard it as 'Put a Selkath on the cover'. By the time the error was discovered, it was too late to change it.
Darth Traya is actually one of the Ones specifically The Mother.She lies alot and The Entity which one of the writers of The Old Republic claims to be Darth Traya is claimed by Darth Vowrawn to be as old as The Force itself and the only ones that match that description are the Ones and since we've seen The Father, The Daughter and The Son the only one left for Traya to be is The Mother who embodies The Void. Why she lies about being Revan's master is obvious: She wants to decieve the Exile who's ability to survive without The Force interests her. Of course she is apparently smart enough to teach Darth Sion and Darth Nihilus how to become unique Dark Side abominations that only the Sith Emperor(who seems to be a bigger manifestaion of The Dark Side than Darth Sidious) surpasses.
Bendak Starkiller is the ancestor of Anakin Skywalker.In the early drafts of the script to Star Wars, Luke's last name was going to be "Starkiller" and not "Skywalker," but it was decided that "Starkiller" sounded to villainous for a hero. Somewhere along the way, one of Bendak's descendants decided the same thing, and changed his name to Skywalker.
Darth Traya was never a Sith.We only have the Jedi Masters' assumptions(and Darth Traya's claim that "The Betrayer" is a Sith Lord though she could have been refering to Atris who had been using Sith Holocrons) that she is. She herself stated to Atris that she did not believe herself to be Sith despite admitting being Darth Traya(she also hinted that she saw Atris as Sith as well). Darth Sion being her apprentice isn't evidence since he was a Sith before even meeting her. Darth Nihilus was in league with Darth Sion and was likely declared a Sith by Sion during the coup.
