Agent story was the worst for me and the unnecessary twist with Hunter was a great example of why I didnít like it. Plot twists just for the sake of themselves make a story convoluted and silly. The Agent story was just trying way too hard.

Think about how that is poisoning him, twisting him, from a Sith's point of view.

He was loyal (as much as a Sith can be) to Darth Thanaton above a slave sith for sure. However, once you show up again, he's just as loyal to you.

It's not like he couldn't have told Thanaton "Hey, you know that sith you hate...she/he is here, looking for an apprentice."

His job is to train new sith and like all sith, he will have his prejudices.

It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

he actually does . That's when you get to kill him LOL

And he still held prejudice against our character . He even slip and almost call us 'SLave' again . And the fact that Zash had to remind him of her 'power'..tell me , he wasn't so loyal toward everyone . Just Thanathon .

So no , I dont think he is loyal to us . And honestly I wouldnt want him . I rather just kill him

I have a soft spot for female villains so I'm going to go with Vaylin. Also shout out to Thana Vesh. She's not really a villain per se, more of a rival, but I always had fun with her on Taris.

My favorite is probably Zash. At least, before "the thing" that happens. She's devious and is the type of villain that I could see being in a movie.

I did say as loyal as a Sith can be. Most sith are less loyal and more suck ups, waiting for their chance at power.

Thana Vesh from Imperial Taris is a great one, because she's on your side but plays as a rival, trying to undermine you at every turn.

I also really enjoy almost all of the original Havoc members in the Trooper story.

Baras and Rakton are definitely my favorite Final Bosses, with Baras having the greatest overall payoff.

My first Warrior was an alien, and from the beginning was offended by Tremmell's racist undertones and celebrated Baras's open-mindedness. I played the whole story as his loyal lapdog, fulfilling every assignment with exactness and praising him at every turn. When he turned on me, it was a harsh reality, and even at the end I fought him, it was a harsh lesson where I finally had to accept that I was serving as the Emperor's Wrath, not Baras's, and I could no longer subjugate myself to him.

Second run through as a Warrior, I took to heart that Baras comment from the beginning about how Tremmell saw me as family. That time I spared Tremmell, sought to undermine Baras at every turn, building up my own network of spies, sparing anyone who made promises or would live in debt to me. Baras hated me, and by the end, crushing him was very satisfying. Both methods of approaching Baras were great fun, which means he is a truly well written story.

Valkorian and Arcann- I never felt connected to any of the villains I faced as the SI. I love the SI story but I felt like something was missing from Zash and Thanaton. Like there were missing scenes or something. It was hard to buy the relationship with them. And I only liked Zash after she was inside Khem (I choose to help her keep the body). I never understood my SI's subconscious "desire" to have Thanaton view him like his child. Or Zash liking me. All I did was run errands for them and then they tried to kill me.

With Valkorian, I at least had time to talk to him, whether I trusted him or not I got a chance to develop and define my SI's relationship with him and I even wanted him to be my SI's father even though I didn't trust him. especially when he tells the Outlander that he is a part of him he wishes to keep. I sort of thought it was leading to that reveal.

Arcann- I wanted him dead but I also felt bad for him and was able to express that. With Arcann, he was jealous of me but it also wasn't personal. Actually, I agree with Arcann wanting to kill my SI or lock him away until Valkorian could be killed. Valkorian was too dangerous to just let roam about, even in my SI's head. It's hard to take it personal with him and I don't care nearly enough about the Empire or Republic to care if he was bombing them to sh*t.

There are 2 villians who got under my skin. One I hate deeply, while the other I mostly sympathise with:

The one I truly hate is Revan. I simply never got over the idea, that Revan was revmaped as anything in this game. While he was in KotoR, I liked for him being that shady persona, and it was a great moment, when I found out, my toon was Revan in the flesh. The way he was during KotoR he was perfect. The way he was portraied during KotoR 2 was also interesting. But when I encountered the first time the Revanites, it turned me so off, I wanted to destroy everything that have any bondancy with Revan. During The Flashpoint "The Foundry" I still freak out while fighting him. ...I deeply despise him! And I was very angry back them during Shadow of Revan, after fighting him and not being able to kill him by myself. This goes deep and very personal for me.

The other villian that got under my skin is Valkorion. Wile I was never a big fan of Vitiate, I began during the Eternal Empire storyplot to sympathise with Valkorion. He is a very interesting man. Only now I began to understand why he was the way he is. He is extremly charismatic and the worst that could happen is at some point you have to sympathise with him. I simply can't have a grudge on him. At any point I knew he is going to betray me, he is going to use me, pervert my decisions, yet I liked him. At the end, fighting him did not feel right. It was no hate nor rage behind my emotions. I just felt sad, that I am loosing one of the best dialogue partners in the game. Fighting him in any way, was the reason to play my main. Loosing him, was loosing my drive. He was kinda the Joker to my Batman. The one can not exist without the other.
