Scourge's "Old Friend"

Thing is, destroying his original body is something Valkorian would have wanted, because by doing so, they have unleashed a super plague that turns the infected into Vitiate clones. A force ghost would know about this, as they are the force itself. Why would Revan or the exile direct them to do something that would potently f*** the galaxy again?

What makes you so sure this is what Valkorian wanted? He feared death, and this plague doesn't sound like it's bringing him back. It's just a spiteful "if I die, I'm taking you all with me!" move.

Furthermore, it's a matter of debate whether Revan or the Exile would even know about the plague (they didn't know ALL of the Emperor's plans), and considering how much trouble has already been caused, I have to ask why Revan and/or the exile WOULDN'T direct Scourge to a chance to put the Emperor down forever?

It would be great if it was Marr and/or Satele. I'm also thinking Meetra Surik/Exile, however. (I likewise echo the hope that it'll be without too much nauseatingly saccharine Kumbaya BS, though.)

As stated by many others up-thread, though:

Revan really needs to stay dead this time

Let the poor sod rest, finally --They've surely got someone mouldering away somewhere that they can use as a tired and hackneyed plot-device for the next 10 years, no?

I'm *really* hoping it's Marr. Keep in mind that Satele is currently comatose suffering the effects of Valkorion's "final weapon" (I'm betting it's a resurrection contagion and the renewed pub/imp war is fueling it), and anyone else would also be vulnerable to that. Unless it's Vaylin returning as a force ghost? Now *that's* an interesting thought...but Scourge never knew Vaylin...

I actually LIKE Marr. And I can't say that for very many Sith (aside from Lana - two of the three of my characters that I've actually gotten full up to the current plotline have proposed to her. Vaccina flirts a lot but won't ever go beyond that, she draws power from keeping her own desires unsatisfied, as opposed to drawing on hate/anger/fear)

That would not be very logical.
1 - Vaylin died shortly before we destroyed Valky in our mind
2 - Vaylin and Scourge don't know each other, so how could she be his old friend ?
3 - How would Vaylin know about Valky's little secrets, especially where he hid is original body ? She probably didn't even know that Valky was not his actual body before he was killed in KOTFE 1.

To me the most logical choices for "Scourge's old friend" are :
1 - Revan as he's known Scourge for a very long time, and spend 300 years as Vitiate's prisonner, heving the man in his mind too, but it seems Revan still had access to Vitiate's mind as well which is how he could've found out about the location of his original body. And honnestly after messing up so bad on Yavin, he has to make up for it, so helping destroy Tenebrae once and for all would be good for him.
2 - Meetra Surik as she's also known Scourge for a very long time, but how would she know about his original body and where to find it ?
3 - Marr could be an option, but we don't even know if him and Scourge really know each other, and same as Meetra, how would he know about the original body and it's location ?

Maybe i'm wrong but IMO, Revan is still the most logical choice here.
In need of more Arcann, Aric, Torian, Vector, and a lot, lot, lot more Theron.
There's nothing like geting too much Theron

Why couldn’t the old friend be Satele? The term “friend” may be relative for Scourge, especially since he lacked the ability to feel much until Valkorion was dead. Scourge definitely interacted with Satele a great deal during his initial travels with the Hero of Tython. When she failed to destroy Tenebrae’s original body, perhaps she reached out to Scourge?

Are we sure the "old friend" is someone that our MC knows?

I can't see why Scourge would omit their specific identity if we're talking about someone that's also MC's old friend, wouldn't he just refer to Marr or Revan by name?

This.

I think it may be Marr though, just because Satele also features in that story.
