I just want my beloved Khem to be back and that we are now able to start a (bisexual) romance, i would dump Lana 10 times for him, i never actually wanted to romance Ashara, she's a *******, but Khem oh my god, i even rejected Ak'ghal usar so that Khem won't get jealous. I beg you, BioWare! BRING KHEM BACK! and make him romanceable pls!!!

I hate to break it to you (really; I too love the character), but Khem is never, ever coming back. It's for the same reason that Darth Jadus is never coming back: it would require the dev team to declare a particular story branch canon, which they refuse to do.

Unfortunately, BioWare kind of painted themselves into a corner when they decided to provide individualized content for each character class in the base game and then concentrate on only shared content in subsequent updates. It means that any choice that was left up to the player can never have more than a cosmetic impact on the story. Anything more would further piss off the already irritable fanbase.

I'll believe he's coming back when I see him. If he actually shows up, any non-Agent is going to have to be introduced to him. And whether he's introduced as a wanted terrorist, an escaped prisoner, or the former primus inter pares of the Dark Council is going to canonize one branch of the Agent's story.

Getting Khem Val back doesn't require much. Just bring him back as Zash for everyone.

Then for the Inquisitor's who didn't keep Zash in Khem, they can easily mention how Khem ended up needing her help when the Inquisitor disappeared and there was only one thing Khem could do to get it.

For all other's Zash in control and not much needs to be done with it.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

That would probably be the worst possible solution, since it seems that the overwhelming majority of Inquisitor players pick Khem over Zash.

The outcry that would erupt over most players having their choice overruled by dev team fiat that way is exactly why characters like Khem, Jadus, Tormen, etc., have not reappeared before now.

Also, it would be more complicated to implement, since they would have to get Zash's VA back, whereas if Khem is in control they can just reuse the sound files of his alien gibberish from the original content.

Puts a whole new meaning to his sayings on what he wants to eat. I think I just vomited a little in my mouth.
Thank you to everyone who has used my referral link over the years and to all of the wonderful people I've met on here.

they already use the same gibberish for akghal usar as what Khem speaks.
Whats interesting is when my inquisitor went to get akghal, there is a part in which you fight--I had khem as my comp <from the terminal>, so..... my inquis sat back and watched. :-)/ Amd my inquis kept khem and not zash.

And no, I would not want to romance Khem.

Now Scourge on the other hand.... he'd be great, espec for SWs BRING BACK SCOURGE!!!!
and now that V's bit the dust, do some handwaving and make him romancable....

There is a reason none of all my inquisitors kept her, I can't stand her. So no.

The thing is, Ak'ghal uses different words and says different things when i talk to him with my JK, i don't know if it's the same for Inquisitors, but at least that doesn't mean he's a complete rehash of Khem, he even has a completely different character, while Khem loves working with sith, Ak'ghal mostly hates the sith (specifically Vitiate and Exar Kun so...yeah)

I would love to see Jadus come back in some way, or something related to the Star Cabal, but maybe BioWare is just putting those mentions just to please Agent players and continuing with their "new and original" story on Iokath, since they only mention that when you are the Agent.

Oh, but why would you NOT want to romance him?
