She doesn't have a Darth or Lord title but stayed close to a Dark Council member. The way she act and speaks don't even like a SIth. Like the letter she wrote to the player later, way too soft. Is that a disguise or her true behavior? Her character is more interesting than the mystery she tried to uncover.

She's not the only Sith in the game whose behaviour screams "restrain". Either way, except for her hair which looks terrible, I liked her overall appearance and her demeanor.

Her hair looks possessed. That aside, she doesn't seem like a Sith at all...

I get the impression she's cut from the same cloth as Zash. Doesn't seem very Sith on the surface, but under the right circumstances...watch out.

I believe the contrary, she looks like a Darth (especially in her artwrok), but I have the feeling she is a "good" person in the fact that she cares for the truth and the Empire (see ending the the new flashpoints storyline) and doesn't seem an an arrogant sadist.

With all due respect, I disagree. Zash seems nice to many, but from the moment I first met her, I felt that it was more of the fake kind of "nice". Wasn't wrong, was I? In comparison, Lana doesn't seem to be as much of a rap_ist.

Wrong in what? Saying that Zash's "nice" is "fake"? Possibly, but understand that I changed the original word I had in mind because it got censored

Well the lead writers now are Republic-leaning so it may be more natural to their writing styles to make the Sith less 'Sith-like', more tongue in cheek, or more subtle self-mocking irony.

I do think Lana Beniko has good voice-acting but the character model looks weird though: the hair is modeled to look like it would in windy conditions except there's no wind. The facial contours and eyelids have these weird indentations and clipping. Her eyes don't have the eyelights (the small light reflections on the cornea) that all other toons have (example):
