** The class storyline on Hoth involves becoming a worthy enough opponent that their current target, Trandoshan hunter Reneget Vause, will be willing to challenge them. In the process the Light Side Hunter acquires another worthy opponent in the person of Ki-Ta Kren, an Abyssin who considers them his brother or sister thereafter.


** It also occurs in reverse on occasion; some of Torian's more unusual turns of phrase are the result of translating Mando'a into Basic. If the female Bounty Hunter accepts his proposal of marriage, he tells her "I know you forever," which is the literal translation of the Mando'a phrase for "I love you." If the Outlander [[spoiler: rescues him instead of Vette]] during ''Knights of the Eternal Empire'', the letter Torian sends afterwards starts "I accept a debt," the literal translation of Mando'a for "thank you."

* BreastPlate: Not a severe offender for female Bounty Hunters, but it's still noticeable.

* BreastPlate: Not a severe offender for female Bounty Hunters, but it's still noticeable. One of Mako's companion conversations has her remarking on how well the Bounty Hunter pulls it off.


* BilingualBonus: While not a real language, looking up Mando'a sheds some insight about Torian, such as his confrontation with [[spoiler:his father]] on Taris, and general dialogue when out and about.
** For example, the phrase he often utters when he heals the Bounty Hunter in combat? It's Mando'a for "Suck it up."

* LethalChef: Invoked. When he offers to cook for a female BH she jokingly asks if she'll be sorry she tried it, and he responds to "think of it as a challenge," since it's a Mandalorian dish.

(For reference, terms for qualities sought after in Mandalorian cuisine translate as "bright mouth" and "nose-burn.")


* HeWhoFightsMonsters: While chasing you down he resorts to some pretty dirty tactics right from the off. At the start, he lures you in with a fake sponsorship on Quesh, and if you spared the apprentice of Kellian Jarro he sends her out there to go up against you. Next, he goes after your friends, the other Great Hunt champions, and kills them because they wouldn't give you up, which given his initial reason for chasing you is utterly hypocritical. In both cases, he sends other people to do the dirty work of enacting ''his'' revenge. When those attempts fail, he resorts to framing the Hunter for a kilometre long list of crimes, causing the Hunter's several contacts to burn bridges out of damage control, up to and including the Empire, and doesn't seem to care that he's basically lying to the galaxy at large through his teeth. Worst of all, when he finally meets you again, he refuses to apologise for any of that.

* LightIsNotGood: He's extreme for a Jedi, but never falls to TheDarkSide. Not for lack of potential, though. Also, [[ManInWhite his robes are predominently white in colour]].

** He co-opts SIS into chasing the Bounty Hunter, causing them to waste time and resources as well as numerous agents on someone who is hardly any threat to the Republic at all.



** His actions also lead to the [[spoiler: death or resignation of the Chancellor of the Republic]]. All of this without serving any practical purpose. The Bounty Hunter is still alive. The Republic and the Sith Empire were going to war no matter what he did. And exposing the "evil of the Sith Empire" was a pointless waste of time.

** RevengeBeforeReason: He relentlessly hounds the Hunter across the galaxy, doing some pretty wicked and occasionally downright petty things in the process. He doesn't ever wonder if he's being kind of unreasonable about it.

* VillainHasAPoint: The Bounty Hunter is a criminal mercenary who killed a heroic Jedi as well as countless Republic crewmembers when they blew up his ship, even if they're Light-sided. They are for all intents and purposes a war criminal and he is fully justified in trying to take you down; the problem is, he makes it a personal vendetta that leads to him making rash decisions which do more harm than good, so much so that by the time you finally throw down in person he's [[NiceJobBreakingItHero gotten several important Republic personnel captured or killed]] and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters disgraced himself so utterly that he's lost the moral high ground]].

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:The Hunter becomes one for the Dark Council after "Shadow of Revan", where they are made personal enforcer by Darth Marr.]]


Added DiffLines:

** By the end of ''Shadow of Revan'' they will have [[spoiler:become a Dark Council enforcer. Making him/her the Dark Council's personal agent and above the law in Imperial space.]]

** His mistreatment of two "volunteers" he forces to help him and the Hunter find Zale Barrows is considered a Dark Side option -- but remember, they're both imprisoned in [[TheAlcatraz Belsavis]], which means they did something pretty damn bad to end up there.

Added DiffLines:

* EscapeArtist: The Chiss keep him locked in a cage. He keeps breaking out, not to escape but to steal more tech. He demonstrates this during a cut scene.

* WeHaveReserves: Seems to be his attitude toward his own people. By framing the Bounty Hunter he had already achieved his goal and could have sat back while other Bounty Hunters did the dirty work. Instead, he pointlessly throws Jedi, SIS agents and Republic troopers at the Bounty Hunter, figuring that sooner or later someone will succeed.

Also a meta example, because the original Jawas in ''[[Film/ANewHope Episode IV: A New Hope]]'' were played by children, which gave them their characteristic mannerisms.


* ItsPersonal: [[spoiler:Janarus earns himself a spot on the Bounty Hunter's hit list after decrying him/her publicly. Jun Seros also goes too far when he sends Jedi to kill the Hunter's friends, the Great Hunt Champions, rather than keeping things between the Hunter and himself. And then there's what started the whole thing: the Hunter inadvertently making things personal with a number of Jedi after s/he killed one of their own.]]
