Lust is a path to the dark side.

I refuse the advances of others to serve a higher calling.

The whole "love is bad" for Jedi is certainly the most illogical and incoherent thing ever.

"Kill 100 people and torture them" + 50 dark Side

"Kiss the woman you love" + 50 dark Side

Possibly but by the time of the movies he was 100% light, right?

Aaaaahgreed. I understand that Jedi are supposed to be Space Bhikku/Bhikkuni, but if nothing else, you don't need special, genetically-mediated abilities to be a Buddhist monk. Also, witness how common the 'lecherous monk' is as a character trope in the literature of cultures with a dominant Christian or Buddhist presence to get an idea of how well that kind of restriction went for a lot of real-life people who were expected by their religious orders to forgo romantic relationships or a family life.

From what I've watched over my husband's shoulder, Aric's probably a really attractive LI once you get him to warm up a bit. That is, as long as certain aspects of male feline anatomy don't hold true for Cathars. :/

He's twenty different types of awesome. But I agree with you on the anatomy thing, heh. :X

This is definitely logical. I'm on the RP/PVE server Kath Hound. I'm basically roleplaying my Jedi Knight as good and honorable, and totally opposed to the Sith. I actually got a couple dark side points in that mission on Coruscant where you steal documents from that courier which show a Senator's intention to submit a bill to reject the Jedi and ally with the Sith. I refused to "allow Democracy to function" by letting the Senator's aide have the document I just took, and instead gave them to the activist who originally sent me on the mission.

I've got a little handful of DS points for making choices like that. When Ranna Tao'Venn asked me to participate in a ritual that would make me the in-culture equivalent of a blood relative, I agreed. I figured that it only made sense to (A)comfort a friend who was having a hard time with the recent death of her mother and didn't have many other allies and (B)open a diplomatic link between the Jedi and the Tython pilgrims, who had fighters and force-sensitives aplenty in their ranks, and who heretofore had pretty negative expectations about how the Jedi were likely to operate.

Basically, my character believes that the core mission of the Jedi Order should be to relieve suffering and improve regular peoples' lives, and she's vulnerable to letting her heart yank the rest of her around. This tends to land her in trouble with an Order that's more interested in using her as a one-woman, Force-sensitive spec-ops unit in the war against the Sith. Mechanically, that translates to a few DS points in with the LS ones.
