Like I said, encountering old faces without the council in mind would be neat also. I always hoped Bioware would implement more story material with cases like Wrex/Wreav or Mordin/Wiks in the Mass Effect series if you are familiar. Write a role for a Jedi character that is familiar with the main character and have an original character to replace them where applicable,

As for the council, I could imagine Jomar eventually becoming a seat holder, but Leeha was one of the ones taken over by the emperor, right? It would be kinda interesting to see how that story element would present itself now that the empreror is gone for good.

It would be nice to see NPC padawans from Tython, like Fia, Spanios and Moracen etc repopulate the new jedi council, the way they gave a nod to that unmentionable sith acolyte from Korriban on Ossus.

Can I just say, it was really stupid to kill off Kaedan the way they did? He was a good character. As an imperial [or even pubside] you could really grow to hate Kaedan.

Jeric Kaeden is hardly jedi material let alone one for the council, how he survived for as long as he had on the council before making the one mistake Jedi should never make, to fight power with power and make the first move, i'll never know. Never-the-less, he got the ending he was clearly looking for based on his militant approach to things.

I was thinking of Moracen and Spanios in the previous reply but considering their relationship and how secretive they were, as well as how one was almost willing to kill to keep it secret? I doubt either of them are considered a shining example of what it means to be a Jedi. It depends if the masters managed to get those desires out of their students and set them on a proper path, but like Leeha and Jomar, that wanton lust and desire won't be easy to ignore if both Moracen and Spanios find each other alone again, even years later.

I was thinking of other Jedi that could become masters, i mean there are those padawans who needed help against flesh raiders, Fia is another, there are those two Jedi Padawans at the foot the staircase leading into the jedi temple, they direct you to trainers within. The Jedi masters involved in the flesh raider idols, the Jedi who wants you to kill Horranths and their eggs. I was also thinking of the trainers and reluctantly the masters of Moracen and Spanios, as one is already too old to be a council member. You need individuals in the prime of their lives but had plenty of experience as Jedi with their powers.

I liked Kaedan. He was obviously intended to be the council's version of Ravage, an irritating curmudgeon. I would have given him extra dialogues for DS jedi to reflect that. His fight on Illum was entirely forgettable, and I've since noticed that every time his VA shows up, he's progressively more overacting. HK's VA does the same thing.

As for the flaws with the other jedi, it doesn't matter. They raised whats-her-face from lord Renning's assistant to DC member, they're clearly scratching the bottom of the barrel. Perhaps we could make that jedi who couldn't lift the rock [DSers lie for him, LSers shamelessly suck up to his master] on Tython a grimdark pub Saboteur.

Further he is willing to leave the poor soul trapped in the restraints behind after the mission completes and with no regard for their wellbeing to do anything about it, that says a lot about his current behaviour as a Jedi.

Ardun has spent too much time playing spy games that he'd never be able to make it on the council knowing what his record says about him and when he is questioned on his past he can't lie about it.

I wouldn't say that Jomar and Leeha are ready though, if they sit in the same room discussing things? they may fall into old habits with all that sexual tension they got from before when they were involved with each other, it could very well resurface and make things awkward. only a few years have passed and not long enough for them to get over each other. i can see one or the other as a possibility but not both.
Arden Kothe is well aware of the moral failings of his past, I don't remember it being established that he was willing to leave the Agent in Castellan restraints after the mission, though. The Agent freed themselves before the mission was complete.

He says he's become a better man if he survives to the end of the Agent story, so if he can do that, I think he could theoretically be on the Jedi Council. It's a moot point though, because he's killable.

I don't think Jomar and Leeha are Jedi Council material either, but there's nothing to say they necessarily were interested in getting over eachother.

But on the other hand, the Jedi Consular could end up getting married and still end up on the Jedi Council.

He too could have ended up dead, but otherwise Jedi Master Timmns from the SW Belsavis story would make a good council member. He's cool-headed enough to work with a Sith against a greater threat but not naive enough to leave out precautions for eventual betrayal.

Just went through that mission today, he definitely had no intention of freeing you.

paraphrasing: "You're part in this is done, stay where you are and hold position there, we'll be in contact in a few months + keyword"

Then watcher x hallucination shows up and you break free.

When you confont him, he describes his own actions as unforgivable.
