Satele is not really a Shadow or a Sage. She is just Satele. Characters of cinematics or every "heroic and important" character tend to not be from the same mold that players come from.
She fights more like what you would expect from a shadow, using a lot of acrobatic moves, saber strikes and such. I think this is what a lot of people were hoping for, me included. My inq moves look like what I would expect. Tons of lighting and dark energy. I would have loved to see some of what Satele did used as character moves and powers. I would have made that my main in a heart beat. Every one wants too look bad *** and epic, even as a humble Jedi.
