What is your NPC headcanon?

Everyone has their own headcanon for their characters, but what about NPCs? What "facts" do you know about your companions?

Personally:
  • Corso gets really cold in space. (All the more reason to snuggle with his captain.)
  • Elara Dorne is lesbian, and that was part of her reason for defecting.
  • Andronikos Revel is at least thirty.

Oh, and I almost forgot:
  • All Imperial officers are really sexually repressed.

  • Broonmark's actually a thoughtful guy. Not some kind of refined philosopher, I mean, his preferred solution to all things is killing, but if you actually listened to all the blllorping you would hear the musings of a smart, thoughtful, insatiably bloodthirsty soul.
  • Quinn is a failed experiment in the Imperial Intelligence Watcher eugenics line. They kicked him out to the military for being either too dumb, too angry, or both, to qualify as a Watcher.
  • Vector is thirtysomething. I know his Codex says 26, and I know Joining changes you, but he seems to have a solidly human maturity well beyond 26, and I'm not convinced the bug hive mind would quite form a proper substitute.

Wait, does that make me her.. "Beard"?

... Well, now I don't feel so bad about cheating on her with Jaxo.

Speaking of:

Headcanon: Ava Jaxo to be getting better after the Act II... Incident. Kurus visits regularily! <3

Others:
  • Bowdaar makes a great chef/bartender. That's why he's in the galley all the time!
  • Watcher Two has a 'thing' for the female Imperial Agent. (I haven't played a male one yet, is it possible to flirt with her?)
  • Blizz loves it when I give him piggyback rides. Wait, that's actual canon? Nevermind then
  • Fez Burba is exactly the kind of super awesome scientist he thinks he is, he's just had a very bad run of luck lately!
  • Enlisted women in the Imperial Army are encouraged to be kind and motherly (presumably because when they get older they're expected to have lots of soldier kids) because all the female Imperial Trooper NPCs you meet are just sweet and adorable. (Officers, particularily Navy ones, are not included)

I'll probably think of more that aren't just headcanon F/F shipping at some point and I'll post those.

  • Vette and Jaesa have super-secret slumber parties that involve pillow fights and "experimenting" just to spite their sexually repressed Sith Lord and Master. Quinn spies on these and posts videos on the Holonet.
  • Skadge is an active paying subscriber to Quinn's videos. Torian is secretly a Beleiber. And it is very unwise to feed Blizz after midnight or give him baths. Very unwise.
  • Qyzen, in truth, lost his eye when he told Kira Karsen her robes made her look fat.
  • Aric is secretly hot for Jaxo. And Wraith.
I used simple happy language words to help you understand.

I thought Vector's info came from his file before he was Joined, meaning that he was 26 at the time of his Joining and has aged since then. If that isn't canon, it's my headcanon at least.

You can have, basically, a full-fledged romance with Watcher Two, actually, although you may have to be human/cyborg. She warms up to you eventually no matter what race you are but I think I remember reading that she will only do the romance with humans. My dykey femme Chiss Agent totally has a thing for her, but it was not meant to be, alas. She lets Temple comfort her and occasionally when she gets drunk and wants to punish herself she and Kaliyo wreck the ship. If she's in a particularly foul mood she makes Vector clean it up.

Most of the rest of my headcanon stuff is similar F/F shipping.

I came up with a couple random things because of the way things have gone in my personal character canon with this particular NPC. Possible SI spoilers...?

Spoiler


I like giving NPCs the most tragic backstories I can think of. I'm sure I will come up with some more tragedy to give her.

Ebon Hawk: Latula // Elaeys // Raima // Jaea // Macara // Meulin // Damarra // Kanaaya

Here are a few of mine.

-The troopers primary romance option is his rifle.
-Republic Special Forces has an IQ test, anyone with a trippe digit IQ ends up in SIS, all those with double or single digit become troopers (seriusly, some of the things the trooper says *facepalm)
-Republic weapons techs never passed basic engineering, after all, I do more damage by hitting my oponent with my rifle than I do by shooting him.
-Dimitri Dolohov, lvl 55 Lethality OP. Toxic personality (Retired until viable again)
-Sgt. Amit Dolohov, lvl 55 Gunny Mando,. Rifle wielding hipster.
I'de rather lose a real fight than win via premade.

You forgot! A Stockstrike to the head costs two rounds of ammunition!
