There is no way you can rationalize that unless you have some bizzare case of Stockholm syndrome, the only reason anyone should be reasonably excited about this is if you are looking forward to rectifying the original class stories mistake of not being able to kill him

In a game with weak female romances quinn is still one of the worsts, picking his job over his feelings for you, i actully felt pity for the female SW when she says "but i thought you loved me".

So im happy too that he's back, so i can finally put that traitor where he belongs, 6 feet under.
It's called forgiveness and understanding, look into it. My SW understood that Baras forced his hand. What is he, a mere human going to do against a powerful Sith lord like Baras? It's basically a death sentence Baras put on him, either Baras kills him, or SW does. Sith Warrior saw the value in his intelligence and strategic thinking and knew Baras would want to part SW from her strategy man...by putting Quinn in this position, he would be depriving SW of their strategizer and analyser. A smart SW would see this and keep Quinn, if for no other reason than to spite and defeat Baras. My SW just happened to be married and in love with him, so she understood. I imagine they had a good talk about it, and vowed never to keep such things secret again.

Stockholm Syndrome isn't applicable in this case, because we are not a prisoner who loves our 'captor'.

You think Quinnmancers are weird, what about all the folks wanting Arcann love? It'd be like loving Hitler...he killed millions by trashing all those worlds, but some want to love him. Go figure. By comparison, I think we Quinnmancers are pretty tame lol. Besides, didn't you see the part about haters in the title?

I think you missed the title of this thread.

Anyway - that's what we have all kinds of headcanon for. To make up for some of the shortcomings of the game's cutscenes and dialogue.

On a side note, I notice that a lot of people gloss over/forget about/ignore Kaliyo's betrayal. Arguably, she's even worse - yet you didn't find a whole bunch of people STILL (it's been, in-game, at least EIGHT YEARS since it happened) clamoring for her death over it. Kaliyo, regardless of whether or not she was romanced,

......so, where are the "You Kaliyomancers are so weird, so you're okay with wanting to be in a relationship with someone who wanted to kill you" people?

Bioware, they keep calling me a "fanboy". Which makes my husband lol every single time, mind you.

But seriously. Giving us Quinn right as I'm getting to know Ryder and a whole new galaxy, too? But yea. That's my way of saying, I'll be playing Bioware games for a whole while longer.

Thank you!

You're right, Kaliyo is much much worse. DarthLunafox says: Death to Kaliyo!!! *Xena warrior scream*

*blushes* he hee, what can I say, when I believe in something, the fingers fly.

Thanks for Quinn. <3
I did a little happy dance as well Luna. Will have to resub nearer April Nathrrya has to have her reunion with Quinn even if she has been snogging Lana!

I've personally always thought that it's far too simple and easy to respond to the Quinn-cident with "I'm Sith, I kill everything, everyone, every time" ... But my Warrior isn't STUPID, mind you. Even if she forgot Quinn was never, ever powerful or strong enough to resist whatever "force" Baras brought to bear on him, to have him comply - she knew Quinn was a valuable as heck resource to augment her own power as she rose to the position of Wrath.

But I know not everyone plays their Warrior as smart enough to look past the most superficial surface of the story, hehe.

Thanks ODNZ I'm glad to hear that this was enough to tempt you back in a bit. I know the fanfic forum wasn't going to be the same without you. I think Nath will be quite happy to see him again.

As my SW will be as well! ^^

My Fem SW is rather tired of running around with Pierce. He was a decent one night stand at worst and a muscle bound oaf at best. He had his moment and it passed. From the live stream, it seems that those who want to off Quinn, may get the chance, but my girl, for one is much relieved to have her hubby coming home. I squeeeed for her!

She knows the sith ways, she has played the game and forgave Quinn for being a pawn with no where to go but where his master moves him. It was really a test of his devotion, one he had to go through to finally realize where his loyalty really lies. It, essentially gave him the freedom to feel things he had never allowed himself to feel before. I don't know if he would have ever fully opened up without this.

Just my 2 credits worth, but, my SW is a very happy lady right now, and I am a very happy player.
