OF course I played it as the Warrior that knows that she will be betrayed at some point. It is the sith way if you think about it. The first time I played it I don't think I was that surprised (yes i knew ahead of time) all that much . There was a line of dialoque where he asks to watch us torture someone or something like that (he sounded alittle too gleeful ). Then he seemed to pop up everywhere. Of course that weird lame way he asked to join the crew. IT came off as desperate and like he was putting on an act. I was thinking, yep he is going to be the mole. Oh and he is mean to every other crew member and acts like he is in charge. If i understand from the Agent storyline the Sith are in charge anytime they are around. I don't think he has a pretty face either, I keep wanting to laser off that mole of his. Those are the main reasons I don't like him. But I tend to go LS on all of my characters, I don't like the dark side all that much. I found his companion storyline not interesting all that much. Sort of sounded like he was using you to get revenge on people.

Then he betrays you and you can't really do anything about it. Now if he pulled that on any other dark lord, he would be dead in less then a second. I think that is the main reason why many players hate him. Yes Baras put him up to it and he probably started to spy on you before he joined the crew. So I guess I don't hate him as much for that because it was going to happen at some point anyways.
i suppose, but we do have the choice of choking him and tossing him around lol, he is from the benefit of the empire thats why he betrays us

(P.S I really want to toss Doc and Skadge out of the airlock, NAKED!)

It's like, "sure, you created an elaborate plot to kill me that involved an entire Imperial cruiser, and threatened the rest of my crew. By all means, please continue to be the captain of my ship and have access to me, my crew and my personal info!"

Sith Warriors use resources, but IMHO it would be dangerous to have a traitor still on board, and my SW ended people for far less. I know in the beginning of the game they did have a kill option and people complained because at that time he was the healer companion - but now that all the companions can heal, Quinn's not so critical to keep. I didn't use him in the game at all.

So I feel like there should have been options to a) kill him; b) kick him off the crew (hey, you want to run with Baras, Quinn? You know where he is. See ya!) and c) keep him.

And if your Female SW romanced him, she's forced to continue a relationship with a guy who tried to murder her. Which gets into all sorts of bad places. (I did NOT romance him). I felt there should have been a break up option.

I didn't ever feel comfortable with Quinn for these reasons:

He's a total bootlicker, he has no personality, and he pretty much uses the Warrior for whatever he can. The companion story quests pretty much go:

Vette: Please help me rescue my family!
Pierce: Please help me run this great black ops mission so we can regain a key Empire post!
Jaesa LS: Please help me save LS Sith!
Jaesa DS: My, this is all very exciting. Let's kill some LS Sith.
Broonmark: Yay Sith clan! Just tell us who to kill!

Quinn: Help me get a promotion! Help me kill the Moff I'm still mad about because he fired me! Me! Me! Me!
ennnnn, ye if u say that way, but come on, No one would trust an Alzheimer disease guy to lead a fleet right? plus he also killed some sis agents, saving loyal imps and even though he is a bootlicker, but he is our bootlicker right



(about the female warrior romance, u can romance with quinn in the warrior three chapters, then romance with Lana in DLCs then u break up with quinn in the war at iokath lol)

Of course my Sith is lightsided. I don't dislike Quinn myself, i think he's okay, and handy to keep around for his knowledge & insights into certain matters.
ye he is a genius in strategic and information

Plus, he kind of talks with a stuffy nose and his face is always twisted up in contempt. He's a real dick most of the time. But he's the best looking male companion by far, so just like irl, you overlook those things for a pretty face and I'm sure that makes some people hate him even more.
i know i support quinn, and i should not laugh but i laughed when i saw this comment lololol, captain pretty face

The Iokath expansion didn't come out until YEARS after the original story...in the original class story there's like one reference to the betrayal and then it goes on like nothing happened. I'm glad to hear there's a breakup option from the commenter below- but the SW is still forced to keep Quinn on the ship.

Quinn doesn't even know how deranged the Moff is until later...until after he's spent about six conversations going on about him. Add that to his elitism and inability to get along with anyone in the crew, and his constant self-promotion...nope. Everyone else on that ship is way more proactive in promoting the Empire's needs. Quinn spends the entire story on his personal vendetta, and then betrayed the SW, and then expected everything to go back to normal.

I couldn't stand him. Not on Balmorra; certainly not later. After the betrayal, when I couldn't kill him, I chose the most Dark Side option and then put a full-face mask on him so I didn't have to look at him on the ship anymore. I pretended he was just a maintenance cyborg.

There's a dialogue option to breakup with him in the same scene as the betrayal.

Is there really? Good. I'd heard the opposite from several people who went through with FSW who romanced him. According to them Quinn just continued the romance cues as though nothing happened - which made sense to me because he acts as though everything's just awesome on the ship after that if you don't romance him. The only reference to it was in a scene with Darth Vowrawn where the SW gets to say something like "Nope, don't forgive you."

It's possible it used to be bugged, but I don't know because I've never romanced him. But I've seen many videos of players picking the "We are breaking up" option and he doesn't act like they are together in later videos.

I got the sense that Quinn's final conversation is meant to trigger after the betrayal (whether or not it does now, I don't know) because he references "the good and the bad" of everything they've been through together.
