* DidNotThinkThisThrough: His plan was to capture the Emperor and turn him to the light side. He plans this with no idea of the Emperor's actual strength in the Force. Nor does he have any concrete plans on how to redeem the Emperror, just a conviction that he'll somehow be able to persuade him.

Added DiffLines:

** Justified. He practices emergency medicin under battlefield conditions, often working alone iwth severly limitd resources.

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 was the class's melee damage companion.

* 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.]]

** It's also implied that the rest of the brass are a little wary of giving him command of too many men at once, given his WeHaveReserves tendencies.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Seems to invoke this for a staunchly Light Side Jedi, and the Republic as a whole. Despite the Republic's philanthropic values, with Rusk bordering on HeWhoFightsMonsters with WeHaveReserves attitudes that would make an Imperial proud, ''no one'' ever really calls him out on causing needless injuries and casualties to the men under his command. A few characters might mumble under their breath that his men don't look happy, but nobody ever ''does'' anything about it.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Despite his history with both Revan and the Emperor, he has no special dialog in ''Shadow of Revan'' and none of the characters (including Revan himself) will even acknowledge his existence if you bring him along.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Despite his history with both Revan and the Emperor, he has no special dialog in ''Shadow of Revan'' and none of the characters (including Revan himself) will even acknowledge his existence if you bring him along. Coming from the other angle, he has no mechanical difficulties in-game fighting droids or other enemies with no or few emotions.



* InLoveWithYourCarnage: He appreciates the more Sith-like actions and responses you can make, and somewhat sarcastically laments that you cannot be fully corrupted into one at the close of his personal story, adding that if you were trained on Korriban you could be sitting on the Dark Council by now.

(Given that the Sith Inquisitor ends up in that position and the Sith Warrior ends up in Scourge's own previous position, he's probably right.)



* [[JustTheFirstCitizen Just a Lord]]: He answers only to the Emperor himself, despite being "merely" a Lord, and not even a Darth. However, judging by the Sith Warrior becoming the Emperor's Wrath does not require becoming a Darth.
* KarmaHoudini: Doesn't seem all that bothered by his betrayals in ''Revan'' (due to his prophetic vision that caused them), and apparently gets off scott-free. Satele Shan is however clearly unhappy about making him a hero of the Republic in the ending.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When confronted at the climax of the Alderaan arc, this conversation can occur:

Added DiffLines:

* FightingFromTheInside: After being defeated by the Knight, he quickly spills the beans on the Emperor's next move without much prompting and it's suggested that Warren's subtly resisting the Emperor's brainwashing, though Warren himself vehemently denies it.

->'''Voiced by:''' Vanessa Marshall

Kira's master, who leaves Kira in the Jedi Knight's care in order to hunt down superweapons in Chapter 1 of the Jedi Knight storyline.

*KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Can happen if the Jedi Knight is dark-sided during the Nathema Conspiracy; she joins the Order of Zildrog to put a stop to them, only to have her life-energy drained to awaken Zildrog. It's noteworthy that while she's turned against you for falling to the dark side, her actions would result in the deaths of thousands to kill one person, implying she's fallen as well.]]
*MentorOccupationalHazard: Narrowly avoided for her and Kira (possibly because she foisted Kira off on you).
*OlderThanTheyLook: Though she appears barely any older than Ashara, she puts down her not being as effective in combat or powerful as one might expect a Jedi Master to be down to age.
*PutOnABus: Badly wounded after the events of the Jedi Knight's story on Tatooine, she isn't seen while convalescing.
** TheBusCameBack/BackForTheFinale: Is brought back into front-line service during the Battle of Corellia, where she falls under the Jedi Knight's command.
*SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: A Togruta Jedi Master with unusual (for a Jedi) behavior voiced by Vanessa Marshall, who [[spoiler:joins the Order of Zildrog to take down the Outlander if they're evil]]? Are we sure we're not talking about Master Sumalee?
*TheWorfEffect: Despite being a Jedi Master, she is defeated and requires rescue by the Jedi Knight twice in the original storyline.

* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Or rather, [[spoiler:"too much of a sleazy cad for even ''[[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Kaliyo]]'' ''[[YourCheatingHeart Djannis]]''."]]



* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Downplayed. While it's never mentioned, his WeHaveReserves battle strategies would be quite at home in the very Imperial units he fights.



* KarmaHoudini: Downplayed. While he never does anything truly evil, by the same token ''no one'' ever questions or challenges him on his WeHaveReserves tendencies despite how much they clash with Republic values. One can only imagine how many soldiers got needlessly killed, maimed, or hospitalized throughout his military career, yet he's never held accountable, and undergoes no CharacterDevelopment.

A few characters might mumble under their breath that his men don't look happy, but nobody ever ''does'' anything about it.



* AnotherSideAnotherStory: Working closely with you is this for him, since he only ever talked to other Sith and, in the Empire, the Jedi are boogeymen they use to [[ScareEmStraight scare children into behaving]]. While he still hates the Jedi Order, he does comes to appreciate you for showing him another way of looking at the Force.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Betrayed Revan to the Emperor because Revan was not the one he saw in his vision, therefore he felt sure Revan would not have succeeded. Likewise, he joins up with the Jedi Knight because your face was the one he saw in his vision, therefore he's convinced that you ''will'' be the one to defeat the Emperor. He doesn't regret or second-guess any of this.

** OutGambitted : On the other hand, if the Jedi chooses neither of those dialogue options, and instead asks in a creeped out voice if he was really planning that far ahead to train your future children, you earn a slight approval loss and he becomes mildly annoyed that you didn't take his bait.



** InherentInTheSystem: The Jedi can also help him realize that no Sith has ever stood up to the Emperor because any who had the potential (read: were deemed a threat) would have been killed off, or absorbed into the Dark Council. After three centuries he's also bored of StupidEvil Sith training and politics, to which the Knight can point out that [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder the very]] [[SocialDarwinist nature of]] [[KlingonPromotion Sith politics]] doesn't exactly incentivize change.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Discussed. She believes that droids have the potential to develop sentience and the Force. Since droids that go a long time without memory wipes eventually develop personalities and capabilities beyond their original function (like T7), she believes this is possible through the Force. Most of her colleagues are skeptical, and the Jedi Knight can either consider or dismiss her theory.



* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter[=/=]ProperlyParanoid: Depending on whether the Jedi Knight is Lide Side or Dark Side. [[spoiler: If Light Side, his suspicion of you turns out to be the former. If the latter, then his suspicions of you turn out to be well-founded.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MoreThanMindControl: He's one of the few Jedi the Knight can't snap out of it with a simple IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight, implying that he loves being DrunkOnTheDarkSide since it gives him the freedom to act on the dark desires he couldn't in the Jedi Order.
* OldSoldier: Well, Old Jedi. His age and many injuries have taken their toll on his body and psyche.

Added DiffLines:

* MasterSwordsman: He proved himself to be incredibly good in ''Revan,'' and has had three centuries to practice since then.


* AmbiguousSituation: In ''Knights of the Eternal Throne'', Master Ranos mentions that Kira joined an anti-Zakuul resistance cell. Unfortunately, Arcann managed to defeat the cell. Some of the rebels in the cell escaped, but Ranos doesn't know if Kira was one of them. Later, Darth Hexid mentions to the Jedi Knight Outlander that Kira had attempted to break him out of their carbonite prison, but was chased off by Vailyn and retreated into Wild Space. Her current whereabouts and possibly even fate still remains ambiguous.
