I like playing chiss because they are the smartest near-humans to my knowledge. But I feel like it only works for the bounty hunter and maybe the agent(they both seem like they were born outside chiss space it feels like).. But I think human supremacist male agent fits best.

I'm surprised they even let you play Sith Inquisitor as a pureblood at launch(don't know if they still do without paying). Why would a pureblood be a slave?

Obviously only Jedi should be Miraluka. Jedi can be anything, the majority of the Jedi Council is alien in the films.. I think some species have more of a reputation for potency in the force in the lore though.

That's a very loaded question which isn't likely to get an objective answer considering we each have our own idea of what our SI is, what our IA is, etc.

It's a role playing game, there isn't a definitive answer to your question. All class, alignment and race combos can be found in Star wars lore, even Jedi Chiss and Sith Miraluka that I thought were some of the more radical combinations that I've done.

Maybe you could argue that a Miraluka with a blaster weapon is a bit weird, but I honestly don't know enought about their "force sight" to really comment if they make worse sharpshooters in lore.

Dunno about Lore , but I know some specie ( a few) have some dialogues were others don't .

Sith Warrior get some dialogues if they are Pure Blood .

Chiss Agent get dialogue too .

Cathar get one lousy Line with Jorgan as a trooper .

Smuggler Twilek get one line with some npc on Ord Mantel .

A Miraluka JK can pick a line in the end of the story to make her feel Miraluka .

Personally, don't care for lore or the movies since this game doesn't seem to have tie with them .

It mostly depends on what we like for the different classes.

About IA, my personnal favourite is a female Chiss, as i like playing a female IA more than a male, and Chiss IA have dialogues that are for Chiss only.

My personnal take on SI is that considering :
- Kallig is never refered as alien unless the SI is an alien as well, i'd say Kallig's supposed to be the same species as the SI
- The size and shape of Kallig's mask, and if Kallig is the same species as the SI, then, every species with horns, montral or lekku is out.
- With the exception of Marr, the whole Dark Council is against Karrid becoming one of them because she's an alien and Annihilation clearly takes place after Ilum, so after the SI became a member of the Dark Council, which would suggest that the SI is either human or pureblood.
- I don't know how she calls Ffon in english but in french Zash refers to him as "the red one", which would suggest that he's the only one with red skin
Then, the SI is most probably human, even though i like mine more as a pureblood (well he's more orange than red anyways, so that could still fit with what Zash said).

But as to why a pureblood would be a slave, i see 2 options :
- the SI comes from a pureblood family who fell in disgrace and ended up as slaves (which seems to be what happened to Kallig's familly after he was betrayed by Tulak Hord)
- The SI is the bastard child of a pureblood noble or Sithlord and a human slave but inherited mostly pureblood traits and was raised as a slave regardless.

It's said on Korriban that the SW comes from a well known imperial familly so to me they're either human or pureblood.

I'd say that the other classes could be anything though. Except probably Cathar for a soldier as there are some oddities while playing a Cathar trooper during dialogues, especially if you romance Jorgan and he acts like he has to explain everything to you about the Cathars even though you're one as well.

But, anyone is free to HC whatever they want for their characters anyways, so it doesn't really matter in the end.
In need of more Arcann, Aric, Torian, Vector, and a lot, lot, lot more Theron.

Jedi Knight - Human male, Light Side
Sith Warrior - Pureblood male, Dark Side
Jedi Consular - Miraluka female, Light Side
Sith Inquisitor - Twi’lek female, Dark Side
Trooper - Human female, Neutral, leaning Light Side
Bounty Hunter - Human male, Neutral, leaning Dark Side
Smuggler - Human male, Neutral, leaning Light Side
Imperial Agent - ???? either Dark Side male human or Light Side female Chiss

It’s hard to choose for the Agent, honestly, because there is a ton of recognition for it if you play as a human or Chiss, so it’s definitely one of those. Like, as a human, you get to have sex with more Imperial humans and you get to be super racist, but as a Chiss, you get entirely different lines of dialogue in some encounters. It’s also obvious that the “main” romantic interest for male Agents is Kaliyo, and you GOTTA be Dark Side to love that chic, so I’m kind of leaning in the direction that the “canon” Agent is supposed to be a male, Dark Side human, but then again, I personally feel more “right” as a female, Light Side Chiss Agent that keeps the Black Codex at the end, and hates the Sith.

Also, as for the Trooper, you can tell BioWare is biased to Jennifer Hale hardcore. So much so that they gave Aric Jorgan one of the longest, if not the longest, companion stories in the game. They even gave him one of the best chapters in KOTFE, Disavowed. The dude is meant to be your XO, and your LI, there’s no question about it. He’s written in such a way that, in my opinion, he seems like the Trooper’s “main” companion, much like Kaliyo to the Agent, Kira to the Knight, Mako to the Hunter, and Risha to the Smuggler.

But other than that whole spiel, I’m rolling a male, Nautolan Jedi Knight and calling him the canon version of the character in my head, ha.

If you make a pureblood inquisitor and log out then back in before talking to Harkon, the screen says you were part of some other lords powerbase and when he tries some shady **** you get made a slave.

ye, it's pretty sneaky, but its actually been explained from the get. I'm more surprised they never corrected the record considering all the speculation pureblood SI's have gotten since the game was released.
