Does HK-51 legacy unlock require the quest?

I noticed there's a Legacy Unlock option for HK-51. If you get this does it unlock him even if you havent done the quest on any of your characters? (I also assume its a per-character unlock, not account wide)

You have to complete the quest on a 50 for the legacy unlock to become available. And yes, it only unlocks on whatever character you buy it on.

There are TWO seperate unlocks. actually, three...
First one is on the OTHER tab. This is required to make him available legacy wide.
Second/Third are on Caracter Perks. One is for Republic Toons, the other for Imperials.
These will unlock him on individual characters. Be careful you don't unlock the wrong faction, you won't get a refund OR droid. You can unlock him at any level. I got him at level 4 for my bounty hunter.
All of his gear will appear broken, and you'll have a flashing red icon on his portrait until you replace everything with level appropriate gear.
It costs a million credits per character, or about 750 cartel coins. (I don't recall the exact amount, sorry)

Does this mean that to unlock him for your Imperial 'toons you must first complete the HK 51 questline on a level 50 Imperial? That is, as I completed it on a Republic toon, he doesn't become available to unlock for my imperial toons, only my Republic ones?
If you can't fix it, forget it.

AFAIK - no.
You should complete quest on any your 50 toon (and get free HK51 for this one character) and it unlocks possibility to buy HK51 companion for any other your legacy character for 1 mio. But there are two seperate types of HK51 companion - for Republic and for Empire. If you buy Empire HK51 for Republic char - you can't use it.

Very interesting sir. Thank you.

I have seen the Republic/ Imperial unlock on both factions toons, would be a major ****** if you spent a million creds to unlock the wrong one. Can anyone confirm this to be correct?

Thay seem to have fixed it so that opposite faction remains locked, so you can't accidentally unlock the imperial side while logged onto your smuggler, or republic side with you sorcerer.
