Dark Side Corruption and Non-Force Users

I've been Googling this for hours and have yet to see a concrete answer. Hopefully you guys can help. I play a Rattataki bounty hunter and was wondering how people are dealing with the dark side corruption in RP, since bounty hunters aren't force users? I realize the mechanic is the same for everyone, but would this be something that non-force users have to worry about?

If possible, I did want to take the dark side corruption IC, but I'm not sure if it would make sense. Beyond the movies and the Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy, I'm pretty new to the Star Wars universe, and my Google-fu is failing me.

Battle wounds, grenade explosion, flame thrower malfunction. Remember to stay within the fable.

Okay, so no, the corruption wouldn't affect non-force users? Got it. I can turn that option off, then.

Sorry, this is my first time RPing in the Star Wars universe, and it's hard to figure out where to start as far as lore research goes.

DS corruption should not affect non-Force Users, no. So unless you have an alternate explanation (e.g., progressive ailment, implant rejection) it's probably best to turn it off. Mass Effect 2 used an explanation of implant rejection due to a refusal to "think positively to aid the healing process" or some such to explain the Renegade look for Commander Shep.

I wouldn't take the Light-Dark scale for morality to be directly equivalent to Light-Dark Force, use it more as a morality thing.

I had a problem with this as well and decided to turn it off for my non-force users. I hate the look on my Ratataki Inquisitor, but that's just my vanity kicking in.

id rather it just have more of the commander shepherd affect for us. Positive intent or Evil intent.And diversify the situations and how they play out . Light side and darkside to me is a buzzkill. Then again It is star wars and totaly makes sence in this universe and game.
