Re: Star Wars - The Force Unleashed - Ultimate Sith Edition
If anything my character while much younger has a similar mindset as I roleplay her in Star Wars Galaxies. She was a former slave to begin with. But it wasn't until she killed her younger sister in a Sith induced rage, that she realized for all the power she gained she was still a slave. Only this time her master wasn't a person but the force its self. She's kind of in a gray area herself, and asking a lot of introspective questions about morality. She felt like a monster when she killed her sister and abandoned the Sith, and tried to kill her master, but failed miserably. She is now a Sith Exile. She's in the same spot as the Jedi Exiles during the Civil War Episoder 4,5,6 movie wise. However unlike the Jedi she's not bound by any code, and like Kreia she uses the Darkside. Right now she's not sure what to do with that power, but ultimately she wants to deep down do something for the greater good to atone for her sisters death. Then again her pathology is still very cold. She may not kill an innocent, but she will kill a gangster, or an Imperial, or a Rebel etc... in cold blood. So she really is very gray. She fronts as an exotic dancer to hide her identity but does some mercenary work on the side. Game wise she's been called in by Jaba The Hutt a few times as a top dollar bounty hunter to take care of his problems. Tying her character into the actual game mechanics will be cool. No one knows she's a force user though except her, and some of her victims, who never speak of it because they are inevitably killed the second she breaks out her Light Saber.
GOD I love this game! I just wish I wasn't so sick lately so I could play it more.
Well anyway I'm building an awesome character, and once she's completed the leveling process she will make for a great creative outlet to role play with. But even her back story goes into why Sith are cooler than Jedi. Jedi are much too wrapped up in dogma, like religious zealots to ever be that introspective. For all the nonsense they preach, and all their words of wisdom. They lack the ability to really feel emotionally and question themselves, at times even think for themselves. Jedi are like robots, where as Sith can be much more malleable as characters, even relatable if they up and decide to question their own morality. And no it doesn't mean a Sith will turn Jedi, if anything my Star Wars Galaxies character after abandoning the Sith, doesn't consider herself either. She's just a force user, and even if she has some catharsis that makes her less morally ambiguous down the line, that makes her "good" chances are she will continue to do her own thing and still continue to use the Darkside. She would never want to be a Jedi or a Sith because like Kreia she's just now starting to question the nature of the force, and the conclusion she's leaning towards is that Light or Dark it all ends the same way. It's best to make your own choices as opposed to letting The Force dictate them for you. Then and only then are you truly free of The Force's hold on your destiny, and able to make your own. That is why Sith are cooler, because they are much more likely to come to those sorts of personal realizations, due to the fact they are not really bound in strict dogma and brainwashing.
