Agreed very late, but great reply thanks!

Ashara was depended on you.
Nadia is devoted to you.

Only noteworthy difference
knowledge is power.
use it well.

Good players take any and all advantages they can get, actually. It's why they are good.

Well I got Nadia in no time to max affection on my Sage. She is as Lightsided as she can get. Makes for an awesome companion in combat too. Me healing and dpsing, and Nadia just trashing mobs. Just have to keep an eye on her health.

Just started a Shadow, and it would be nice if I could take her on my journeys. Although I think I might be better off with a healer companion this time around.

I think it would depend on what kind of Shadow you plan on playing.

As a tank, I loved getting Tharan, and never used anyone after that.

As a DPS, I guess having another Shadow (basically what Nadia is) would be interesting.

But I agree with everyone else, she becomes a true Companion WAY too late in the game.

And I certainly couldn't imagine starting a new character with the sole intent of getting to run around with the last companion they get =) That's like saying "Gee, I can't wait until I hit 50 and basically beat the entire game, just so I can unlock a ranged DPS assassin droid!"

Oh wait...

In my opinion Nadia was one of the worst-written characters in the game and her romance was even worse. There's also a few nonsensical things like her inexplicably having a lightsaber despite having no Force training and before she even becomes your padawan.

Stay far, far away.

Can't say cause my Sage is female But judging my Knight when things start to get hot with Doc, then yeah that yields Dark Side points. So my guess would be the same with Nadia if you play a male Consular.

She appears with Jedi gear, yeah. I think that's just an artifact of her late arrival in the JC story. I can fix it with head canon--she learned very quickly from my JC and she has 1%er resources from her home planet.

Nadia works well with my TK sage. Sometimes I have to break out Qyzen to pound down a boss, but Nadia kills faster in most cases and can tank if she's bubbled. She gears easily since I can put my JC's old gear on her. She looks much better in Tier gear than my (male) JC, since it's all very feminine. Stock Nadia is somewhat plain, but I found Customization #6 (grey/silver hair with bangs) fixed that.

My JC has all of 100 DS points, so you can romance Nadia with only a minor DS hit.

Nadia has some interesting master-student interactions with the JC, so it's worth raising her affection level with her even if you aren't romancing her.
