I keep trying and deleting my chiss jedi toons, since I didn't figure they fit lore wise. Popped to the wiki, and I guess there was one male chiss jedi during the clone wars, and now in-game with Ranos? ( really sorry I didn't get a chance to nab her, missed it, ugh)


I know in-game you can be a pureblood sith jedi and no one bats an eyelash, but can there be a canoncial reason for force sensitive chiss?

The new Copero Flashpoint mentions that the Chiss consider Force sensitivity to be an "impurity" and that most Chiss who demonstrate it are either exiled or executed. So presumably, it's rare but not unheard of. And it even kinda makes sense, in that case, for the Jedi to probably pick up an exiled Chiss here and there.

Yeah. It's not impossible for a chiss to be Force-sensitive, but it's very rare and the Ascedancy is not exactly a fan of them.

Now I wish I could run the FP in story mode, but this new chis toon I'm working on is still onTython.


Really? They consider Force sensitives impure when they're allies with the Empire? Shouldn't they be giving any force sensitives to Korriban?

Ironic since Valss managed to slip through the cracks and operate on Copero with his sister Zenta. I'm wondering if House Inrokini hid Valss from the other Chiss houses and trained his abilities with the lightsaber and in the force offworld before returning to become something of a secret guardian to the house? unknown to be honest, he doesn't seem like a dark side character, it's possible he could of been trained with jedi skills in combat but without the Jedi values and morality so he could serve better.

The Ascendancy is not required to do anything -- they're allies of the Empire, not part of the Empire. Not to mention that the chiss who are Force sensitive wish to hide it, so it's hard for then to even spot them.

I'm guessing Valss slipping through the cracks was very much Zenta pulling some political strings, possibly giving the higher-ups of House Inrokini some plausible deniability ("Zenta's brother is a trained Force sensitive? We have no knowledge of that. You wanna go to Copero and drag him here to prove he's prancing around with a lightsaber? Zenta is a busy woman, and we don't want to trouble her with something like this. So unless you have evidence..?")

I agree that Valss did not feel like a sith at least -- maybe he was trained by some sort of grey Force user (or possibly by Master Ranos?).
Of course, if the is
Spoiler

He might have been taught by a formel Zakuul Knight.

I don't think Valss is connected to the order of Zildrog, it seems more like he wanted to protect his house. but it was clear to see that Valss had a force vision and those visions are not that accurate, the vision was that Valss saw Theron become victorous in his task and so he sacrificed himself to see Theron complete his task, in what context Theron becomes victorious is just as unknown, but Valss was more interested in seeing Theron to his goal like a personal quest force users sometimes undertake.

For the record, I also feel Valss was not part of the Order, but if I'm wrong about that, it might mean that he's had the zakuul knight training.

Very strong chance that the Order of Z won't give any Force-sensitive ZK training. They are likely to be like the Heralds, mortal sworn enemies of the Knights.

Chiss Jedi are known - there is even a comic about one, see here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Nuru_Kungurama
