Well to have an IA character which shares similar traits and views as Kaliyo (anti-imperial attitude, dislike of authority, unreliability) is just plain dumb from the storyline perspective. Why would your IA character join the "Gestapo of the Sith Empire" in the first place? And how does one expect him to come through the training process with that kind of traits?

It intrigues me how do you guys even play IA with that kind of mentality. If you refuse to be an imperial drone (for the sake of storyline) I would assume are stuck on Hutta telling the Keeper to f*** off when he is giving you the first mission.

I am not found of Jedi either but when I played Knight and JC I adapted to their mentality otherwise the whole experience would feel stupid and pointless. A Jedi who despise the Jedi and at the same time follows orders given by the Jedi makes no sense. Same applies for IA.

I find it fun to play my agent like that. I mean undermining the authorities, doing the exact opposite thing that I was asked and generally speaking, being a loose cannon. Kaliyo just fits perfectly for me.

I've figured, that my agent has become disillusioned to Empire and is considering a future as a smuggler or bounty hunter.

Can't really see any problem story wise.

Actually, everyone in the Empire knows what the Intelligence is, and they know to fear them. It is sort of like KGB in USSR, the secret state police with basically unlimited authorization to make enemies of the Empire "disappear".

I think I might give Kaliyo a a bit more chance on my next Agent playthrough, as I found Temple to be a bit crazy with her "all-hail-our-Sith-overlords" views.

Only one that really rubbed me the wrong way was "Dr Mengele" Lokin.

I didnt like "Patricide" Temple and Jaesa much either.
Skadge was just dumb and rude, but not that annoying.

Vette, Kaliyo, Gault were hilarious! So many good laughs with them.

My favorites are the adorable Blizz and Scorpio!
I wish I could have married that robot, sexiest voice in the game, lol

I loved Kaliyo as well, awesome companion. Liked all the agent characters, they're all a little crazy.

The smuggler companions are okay as well. I can see that someone thinks Corso/Bowdaar might be a little boring but I like them. The smuggler has the most awesome companion of all, in Guss Tuno. I think Akavi might be the companion I've liked the least, she didn't really fit in on my smuggler operation.

It might be fun from individual gameplay perspective but it just does not make sense story-wise. No matter how hard you try to do the "opposite thing that you are asked", if you wish to progress the storyline you first have accept and then complete the missions your imperial superiors are giving you. One does not risk his/her neck to perform highly dangerous missions for the fun of it. Especially when doing it for the benefit of someone or something he/she opposes. Better off being bounty hunter or smuggler from the beginning and at least do the missions for the personal gain.

Okay if the character gets disillusioned with Empire at the end of the storyline and then quits that is fine. But opposing Empire from the start and doing countless of missions for them before quitting is ridiculous and plain stupid.

IA) Kaliyo - your whole job is to hunt threats to the Empire and eliminate them why is someone selling information still on my ship rather than a hole in the ground? I found Temple a bit disturbing but at least she's loyal to the Empire so I can live with her I just tend to leave her monitoring comms.

SI) Xalek - does he actually do anything other than be a bad knock off of Khem? I'd much prefer to get

on Belsavis given what the class quest there involves.

SW) Broonmark - much like Xalek I just can't see the point in him. Quinn of course for the usual reasons

BH) Skadge - just go die in a fire you sadist. He's not even competent in his introductory cutscenes!

JK) Rusk - There's get the job done and there's being incompetent guess which you are.

i kinda cringed a bit when Kaliyo joined my IA. i was really mad when i had to take Gault and Skadge as my companions. i'm starting to warm up to Gault a bit, but Skadge? no. Rusk and Iresso also seemed a bit out of place on my Jedi. Broonmark made absolutely no sense to me.
