You didn't pay as much attention to the story as you should have. *Valkorion*(1) built up Zakuul's Eternal Empire up well before your character begins the carbonite nap. Arcann's involvement *as*emperor* begins at almost the same moment as your stay in carbonite.

The original *person* called Valkorion wasn't anything to do with the Sith Emperor, but just a warlord in an early version of Zakuul (ref: KotET Chapter II, talking to Valkorion), appropriated centuries before the player's journey begins by Tenebrae / Vitiate, producing the composite entity I usually call TVV..

As for hiding an empire, well, galaxies is big, and there's plenty of room at cross-galaxy distances to hide an empire from another, especially if the said "other" is busy fighting a third "empire". Heck, the only reason the Zak forces knew where to find the Pubs and the Imps was because TVV was running both the Zak side and the Imp side...

(1) Don't forget that:

Something you find difficult is a lesson on how to play better, not a punishment for playing badly.

-1 Absolutely No: Arcann is doing fantastic as a #1 best companion, ever.


+1: Let Arcann live and live well by letting him change his appearance with CM armor and give him his own bonus chapter.

Nah, Senya must live for the GOOD of the story. I'm sorry, but having Lana be the default for everything just because everyone else is dead, is a boring experience, and a boring alliance, very boring.

Are people seriously still arguing about this? I thought people lightened up after KOTET came around and allowed everyone to enact their ideal fates (whether that be redemption or death) for Arcaan.

I wish Senya and Arcann are not a pack deal.
Most of my character will kill Arcann but keep Senya.

Same here, I love Senya but Arcann didn't deserve redemption imo. Still shocked there are some peope who actually romanced him lmao. Imagine romancing someone who actively slaughtered millions and tried to harm all your friends.

Parents love their kids and want to help them. (Well, they should.)

Senya would be a lousy parent if she shared your belief that her son deserved death over redemption. It's not even remotely surprising that Senya won't join someone who feels Arcaan shouldn't be redeemed simply because he "doesn't deserve it."

It'd be a bit more tolerable if 1) Arcann wasn't constantly groveling and needy after I saved him and 2) I could customize him so his cybernetics don't appear and possibly I could give him different gear. It looks a bit weird that he's still dressed as an Emperor, was hoping to just give him a Jedi robe or something to show his redemption
