Lana and Theron kinda remind me of the Shepard and Garrus dynamic in Mass Effect, there's literally no Shan without Beniko and visa versa.

Probably Theron, to be fair.

Theron is a Spy, that's all there is. Other then the "Train Crash" (for which he provided the escape) really all he's done is refused to "Heel like a Pet" ; he has more important things to do. So far our not being able to find/ go to him has kept "The Commander" far away from whoever these people are (Maybe he's protecting us) and the people we've encountered so far could be "Thinning the enemy down before we even get there" also. Theron's just a Spy, if he was spending time "Gossiping with us, hanging out with us" it would be really difficult to convince the enemy he had "Changed Sides".

Of course Theron is loyal.

I'd quite like it if they made him disloyal if you played a really darksided commander who sided with the empire, but I suspect that the baddies he infiltrated will somehow turn out to be much worse even than the most depraved player character. It's just easier for the devs that way.

Garrus and Shepard aren't just a romantic relationship-pairing though, if you don't pursue Garrus romantically they have a tight friendship, which is what I was referring to. Besides, Lana and Koth have a blatant crush on each other so there's absolutely no danger of Theron and Lana ever catching feels for one another.

If SWTOR was a single player RPG like a standard BioWare game, I could totally see Theron betraying us for real if our character was the ultimate dark side space douche, but like you said, since this is an MMO all those branching outcomes across the board stack up. It's a shame that those sorts of branching narratives happen to a lesser extent in SWTOR but since it's a game that continues on indefinitely, I imagine it would get really confusing and complex to implement and account for all those different branches and fates for so many different companions and protagonist choices.

I wonder if they'll open this game up to the fans for modding after it hits the end of its run? I love the mods the community has made for Skyrim, and it would be awesome to be able to get some for this game. As to his loyalty, LS commander, yes, DS....idk. I suppose they could make it like the Koth choice, but the problem there would be then he's gone from the story for the LS characters, too. A branched storyline would be nice, but I doubt they have the resources to pull that off right now. *sigh*

Some of "Skyrims" mods and "Player Created Quest's" are amazing. I really Doubt EA would (They're not a Nice company) but it would be good
