If you were a Jedi , when would be the time you would fall to the Darkside ?

Rule:Keep it in the realm of Fantasy .Real Life Politics is not welcomed


I am very Passionate about defending the weak and underdogs .
I could never sit still when the weak are dieing from anyway Preventable . Even though the Jedi usually never allow the weak to be punished or harmed , it would be my undoing .

My Jedi Knight is my main , I have been disingenuous about how I got total Lightside by how I played him though. Admittedly . I am in life not so forgiving to those who would harm others and I would not ever be forgiving to someone who selfishly hurt someone else life threateningly for personal gain . In the game I allowed those who harmed or kill others to walk free when if I wasn't trying to gain full affection of my companions and full lightside cheaply and with little money involved .

Never. I would go the route of Odan-Urr and spend my time studying The Force, not fighting in battle.

I would be too busy learning to fall to the Dark Side. Plus I'm naturally good-spirited, so that helps.

I can honestly see that , if we were in the realm of StarWars you would be a great Historian/Force Master for sure !

For me, it would probably be over time. I am not a follower of every rule and by the book kind of person. Sometimes doing the right thing ain't doing the right thing[love that line from SWAT]. Sometimes one must become the darkness to fight the darkness.

Along the way i'd probably go to the darkside, but I think with help I'd come back to the light.

For me I'd probably be a jedi shadow, but I'd be more like the assassin's out of assasin's creed "Working in the dark to server the light."

I'd probably fall the same way Kun did: I find Sith sorcery fascinating, and that would lead to reading into forbidden archives.

That, or the same way my Jedi role-model, Kao Cen Darach, died: staying behind to stall someone more powerful so that my friends could escape. That powerful person would end up corrupting me after I was defeated.

I'd probably fall during the heat of battle, competition and the strive to win would be.....exhilerating.

It depends on what you mean by fall. If you mean DS5/total corruption, then probably never. If you mean something lesser on the scale....then any time a pragmatic choice needed to be made to ensure victory. Let's just say that

He wasn't much for leaving an enemy standing who would clearly stab him in the back later, either.

There are three scenarios which could make it likely for me to fall:

1. Genocide: If a genocide was going on and I had the power to stop it, I might decide to also become prosecutor, judge and executer for those responsible. I'd start murdering them, with growing hatred and anger.

2. What Bird_of_Thunder said: Dark Side secrets are incredibly fascinating. I might delve to deep in them.

3. If there was a ticking bomb scenario, like in the Jedi Knight story chapter 3

Spoiler


If stakes were that high, I would stop looking out for others and leave them to die. I would stop looking out for my inner peace and use everything I could get to gain more power to prevent it from happening.

Given I am sickly with a bad illness Sith sorcery would be tempting for me to look for a way to repair the damage to my body done by the illness and getting rid of it.

But given light side can heal think more I would end up borderline from studying the force in search for a cure.
