Also, here is something to consider about a Pureblood Inquisitor: they were a late addition to the game. Originally (aka a few months before launch), if you wanted to be a Pureblood you had to be a Sith Warrior. It was because all Purebloods are Force-Sensitive (those that aren't get killed as infants), and they are part of the Aristocracy. So the "Slave Discovered to be Force-Sensitive Narrative" Inquisitor backstory didn't fit with Pureblood's. It was only after a large fan outcry (on the Pre-Release SWTOR.com there were polls with thousands upon thousands of votes with around 75% of people in favor or Pureblood Inquisitors). And more importantly, a good number of Bioware Devs were in favor of allowing Pureblood Inquisitors. As a result, they were added a few months before release.
The problem with this, Read the Revan novel. There are Sith Pureblood that are treated as slaves. If a sith is disgraced, even a pureblood, their entire family is enslaved.

Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds."

Twi'leks are the quintessential slave race in the galaxy. Forget Kallig. Supposedly Kallig is whatever race the player character is. Supposedly he can't be twi'lek because he doesn't have lekku. Nevermind that he wears a full helmet that would disable lekku anyway (gg bioware). Did they ever actually fix that? Do lekku just clip through all helmets now?

Either way you can use your imagination. If th twi'lek helmet bug/design is still in place Kallig's helmet would disable his lekku were he twi'lek. It doesn't matter, since he has a helmet anyway for compatibility with all player races and some derp just forgot about the twileks.

Sith pureblood doesn't make sense given the slave story; they are worshiped in Sith Society.

Developers added this option at the last minute because it was such a popular choice, but they were concerned it didn't fit with the story.

The Arcada Legacy (Ebon Hawk)
Ord'os (Lvl.55 Sorcerer), Naresa (Lvl.53 Operative), Jagrafess (Lvl.19 Marauder)
Nydus (Lvl.54 Shadow), Toclafane (Lvl.27 Guardian)

They are not worshipped. They are basically the upper class. If a Sith is disgraced, which does happen, his or her entire family is enslaved.

The reality is that the developers themselves were not going to include sith pure bloods as an (initially) playable option within the Sith Inquisitor class because it did not easily fit within the story line. They raised the concerns, not me. It is in one of the development videos.

I'm personally glad they did so people like you could come up with an interesting back story to make it work.

Sadly, I didn't make up this back story. It is canon. It is in the Revan novel.

No, you were given poor treatment because you were a slave, even if you are pureblood. And there are certainly ways of slavery being thrust upon your family, should you be pureblood. The Lost Tribe of Sith books explain that a bit.

Not to dismiss all the Twi'lek arguments, but Wookiepedia mentions that the Clone Wars TV show (which is cannon) had humans breeding with Twi'lek. So it's feasible.

Well you didn't read the Wookieepedia article carefully. The Clone Wars does not state that, it is some pointless "Encyclopaedia". I am not going to do another explanation so I will just give you links to two previous posts from this thread:

Going strictly by the storyline/canon...any race except Pureblood, Twilek, and Chiss (maybe not the Rakkatti..by the sounds of it, but I didn't realize they were a newly discovered race).

I mean sure, we can work around anything, but that's basically what it is, a work around, and I don't recall seeing any Sith being really downgraded in TOR, but I'm gladed to be pointed in the direction of the story, I may have missed it on my SI and BH.
