Character Biographies [Holonet Update 03/26/2010]

Discussion in 'Holonet Chat' started by Darth Derriphan, Mar 26, 2010.

  1. Star Wars is a galaxy full of heroes and villains, this week BioWare has given us a glimpse at some of those that we may come across in Star Wars: The Old Republic. This weeks update sees the unveiling of a new section on the Holonet, specifically for introducing us to these characters. With three different sections highlighting characters from the Sith Empire, The Galactic Republic and those who remain Independent, which when opened up reveals space for a fair few characters that hopefully will be updated on a regular basis.

    Introduced to us this week is the Grand Moff Kilran known as the 'Butcher of Coruscant' by the Republic and is a man very passionate about his wine. You may remember his name being mentioned in the Flashpoint walk-through where a Sith Warrior and Bounty Hunter infiltrate the Black Talon to take down Captain Orzik, who has disobeyed an order given by Moff Kilran. A tactical genius, Kilran could turn out to be this eras Grand Admiral Thrawn.


    The second character to be shown to us is the Independent Hutt known as Nem'ro. As with most Hutts, this one seems to be another slimy gangster type in the vein of Jabba. Strong-arming his way into control of the Hutta industrial town of Jiguuna. Nem'ro now lives a life of corpulent luxury, relying on his gang of thugs to do his dirty work. But even in his success he must be wary, as younger more ambitious Hutts are keen to remove Nem'ro from the top.


    And last but not least we are graced with the presence of the Jedi Grand Master Satele Shan. A direct descendant of Bastila Shan of the Knights of the Old Republic games and Grand Master of the Jedi Order itself. Fans of the Threat of Peace webcomic will be no strangers to this young Jedi as she played a key role in the series, helping bring about an end to a plot to stop the treaty of Coruscant from happening and thereby sparking a continued war. Even for her young age Satele is an accomplished Jedi, having been the one to rediscover the lost Jedi 'Homeworld' of Tython and playing a part in several key battles. It is no wonder she rose quickly to be the youngest Grand Master the Jedi have ever had.


    But Biographies are not the only thing BioWare have delivered this week, if you head on over to the official Star Wars website you can read a short story by TOR writer Rob Chestney. Smuggler’s Vanguard documents the exploits of the Smuggler Hylo Visz, famous for breaking the Mandalorian blockade of the Hydian Way.
