You are so wrong.

Talon is not "submissive." She is loyal to the One Sith, which a trait Krayt cultivated in his Sith to improve upon the failings of previous Sith Orders. Within what the One Sith were meant to be, Darth Talon is the paragon. Yes, she is Krayt's "Hand," but all that makes her is his most trusted operative. Look at what happens after Krayt is "killed." Watch how Talon reacts to the new and carries out what she believes would have been Krayt's will, irrespective of what others would have her do. She exhibits a strength of will and character that more Sith *cough*Wyyrlock*cough* could learn from. She is the best of Krayt's Sith Order.

That you refuse to admit the character has merit tells me that all you care about is lobbying Mara Jade and tearing down any character who threatens here. But this isn't a competition, Mara Jade doesn't have to die for Darth Talon to live (except, you know, literally, what with Legacy taking place 150 years after ANH.) One can enjoy both characters for what they are, and the unique traits they bring to their respective stories, and the unique journey each character goes on.

Don't turn this into a "Team Mara/Team Talon" debate. It quite simply does not need to devolve to that level.
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

Mara Jade, hands down.
Happiness is like peeing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel it's warmth.

I had an ultra long response, but it's not worth it; so I'll just bow out...but forgive a parthian shot.

Being good at what you do does not equal a dynamic character. Her sole purpose is to carry out the will of her master...and she is good at that. Ask yourself- does that really equal loyalty? Loyalty isn't blind devotion; it is knowing all the facts and choosing to follow another. Does Talon really have a choice? Does she ever question the One Sith, or Krayt's will? His wish is litterally his command. She would cut her own heart out if he commanded it.

These are not positive traits. Talon is a tragic and static character. She lacks the ability of judgement, reason, or informed action. Krayt orders, she moves. And she is good at it. She is the archeotype of submissive, because she never, ever questions her orders. She lives soley to please her master's will. That's not loyalty...that's slavery.

And you still don't get it. She does question, when it comes to Krayt's "demise," and remains loyal to HIS ideals, not ideals she's told are his by a third party.

That's loyalty.

You don't get it.
