I know there's plenty of threads out there discussing Theron Shan and of course, him being the traitor. I've obviously come up with my own theory and would like to discuss it with people and see if anyone can see any weakness in my theory!

So please read and tell me what you think!

I liked your post it was an interesting and well thought out theory. I am hoping that they can write something new and different though instead of just re-hashing the agent story line as a major story arc for everyone. Don't get me wrong, because I love the agent story. It is actually my favorite one in the game of the main class stories.
Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

Your point on paranoia was an excellent point as I'm sure psychological warfare would be a key tool for spies. If he was a wholeheartedly pro-The Order, Theron, not Lana, would be the first to suggest spying on everyone as that would benefit Alliance's new enemy. He does suggest some shady and ruthless choices like allying with Kaliyo, an established terrorist by kotet (previous companions, sure, but still a terrorist). In previous emails he sends in kotfe, he already read a lot of emails that are not his. So, the fact he's adamantly against spying does say something about his actions so far. So he doesn't shy away from being ruthless or morally clean like a pure LS Jedi would want.

I'm on the bandwagon that he's playing the double agent, and at heart, he's on the side of the Alliance. He might not come back, but I don't think he fully accepts the whole "let's go apocalyptic with these superweapons on EVERYONE."

I am curious on how these superweapons work as in why do they need a sacrifice from a chair? I'm sure the devs will not go further into details, but my curiosity just perks up.

More and more, I'm getting interested in how Theron was just singled out like this, and how his character will be explored and tested in coming chapters. Theron does have an interesting background that's connected to a lot of swtor & kotor history. The betrayal sucked (and perhaps could have executed better), but I think the potential is there. I'm curious how the devs will play with his background and where the Eternal Alliance will go.

... I really need to finish the IA storyline.

The IA storyline is arguably the best of the vanilla class stories.
I've played it several times and even recorded my last play through of it (mostly cut scenes) using FRAPS.
The IA story is so good, I wish Disney would make a trilogy or a part 1 and 2 live action movie version of a similar type of story, maybe set either during the events of the OT or era of the new trilogy (NT?).

I'm also hoping that this truly is a very new enemy. Malgus, Jadus, the Dread Masters. They were all great because they were NEW and UNIQUE characters found exclusively in Swtor. I've enjoyed the reappearance of old enemies like Revan, but after spending the last three expansions with a focus on Valkorion, a character dating back to the lore of KOTOR, it would be good to get something fresh with small connections to other pieces of game lore.

Theron is up to something but I still say the person or group out to kill you and will succeed in destroying the alliance is unknown. Or a female Sith stalker with a mother complex.
