She gets upset if you leave the Imperials to die during that Gemini chapter, and she doesn't seem to approve of being disloyal to allies (part of her sales pitch for going with Acina on Iokath is that you're already allies and that it would send a bad message to turn your back on that). She also seems happier at the end of KOTET if you choose to be a Peacekeeper. Sith or not, Lana doesn't seem to be into pointless cruelty and I think she'd object to decisions by the player that pointed toward that.

Boyd mentioned something like war crimes against the Empire being a catalyst for making her leave, and that makes sense to me.

I have never romanced Lana, but my Commanders have all been close friends with her. My one and only character that romanced Theron was so hurt by Lana's letter and her reactions. But the way she was written in Nathema was beautiful. She was still mistrustful of Theron, but at the end, when she was the one that called out to him, she was the one that pulled him away and was checking on him, you could see how much she actually cares about him. This felt more true to her character than she has since this whole ordeal started. I couldn't be happier with the way that it turned out. I just wanted to come in and share a little Lana love.

She's another speed bump character that constantly gets shoved into my way, because the "story" (the incoherent rubbish they call "writing" in this "game") forces me to do so.

I can't bring anybody else. I have to bring Darth Diet Coke.

I find her generally rubbish. Better than a **** like Theron, an ****** like Arcann, or that dumb Jedi bimbo all my Inquisitors are plagued with (WHY IS SHE BACK!), but still as companion for a proper Sith?

Yeah, if you've never read anything about Sith and know very little about them, then she's fine.

I'm with this.

My PC felt really upset with Lana's reaction especially post Copero and I thought it was too extreme. I'd really worried for how she would react on Nathema but I liked the direction it took. Mistrust, some bickering, allowing Theron to confront her in return, slowly reestablishing some trust between them to her concern for him at the end. It makes her lashing out post-Copero feel more understandable too and I now see it as her essentially expressing frustration and some hopelessness in the sense of "Damn you Theron you were my friend, I trusted you and care about you, how could you do this?!". I can live with that much more.
Unsubscribed until new story content is provided and/or all companions have returned.

I did think that the way they drove that arc was very well done, and that's not something I say much about SWTOR anymore. I was honestly worried after Copero that there was going to be an open battle between Lana and Theron on Nathema, and that we were going to be forced into a choice of protecting one to save them from the other. I wouldn't have found that IC for Lana or Theron but at that point I wouldn't have put it past the devs.

But it also did seem as though the email was Lana venting her understandable anger and hurt, and I am very glad that is how it turned out to be.

And I have to say I loved the marriage proposal. It's making me a little teary with happiness that the game finally officially is allowing same-sex marriages with Lana and Theron. But beyond that the way they wrote Lana's proposal scene was really sweet and in character.

I don't think she ever had a thing for Theron, myself. But she clearly cares for him and considers him a close friend.
The only reason I was thinking that myself (that she had a thing) was the extreme reaction to theron's so called betrayal. But me the player kind of figured what might be going on anyways so in my head I was saying "lana it is obviously him being a double agent". So it might be more me reacting then what my PC would have. But I found it odd that she dismissed some of what my pc was saying at first but I am glad she finally started to listen to what we were saying.

I really love the pc, theron and Lana team.
