Hello, I think this is my first post although I signed up a while ago. I have looked at this Kotor forum alot but never actually had anything to post until now so don't flame me for being a nublet. I have read some fantastic posts in all threads in the Kotor forum and I thank you all for providing me with hours of insight and interesting reading during my boring ICT lessons.
While on the toilet yesterday, I was thinking of Kreia (as you do) and thought what if she goes deeper than this beyond Dark Side, Nihilistic hater of all life and the force. Maybe she is a True Sith. Ignoring all other conceptions including that she might be Kae (HAHAHAHA...ahem) and other possible stories. What if she is/was one of the original Sithari (sp?) yes having been a Jedi and Going back to the Dark Side like a Yo-Yo. I know what you’re thinking but hold on this will make sense in a minute.
Here's my concept:
The True Sith were the badass Darksiders who spawned the cult of The Sith we all know and love today. They lived X amount of years before Kotor doing they're bad things then leaving the galaxy for pastures new. In all those thousands possibly hundreds of thousands, or dare I say millions of years, the True Sith changed. They still exist but they are these ultimate Light side wiser than Yoda higher plain of understanding people. Now these people see the Jedi and the Sith as a petty fight which they observe but do not interfere. Besides, they really don't keep a close tabs on galactic events.
This Light side Sith concept would be a fantastic twist on Kotor 3 as it is almost a dead cert the True Sith will be a big subject in Kotor 3. People are expecting the True Sith to be the ultimate battle royale in Star Wars history. Instead, we explore the history of the True Sith and find out how they have influenced life in the known universe and that there is a higher existence all Light and Dark should try to reach. The state of pure energy and peace. Despite the last two paragraphs, try and veer away from a Sith in a VW Camper van with a make-love-not-war sticker on it, image.
The main battle here is between the Sith and the True Sith, now this is the epic part. We look a little deeper and find out who Nihilus was (Possibly a car salesman or whatever but who knows, I'm not going into detail on that) and introduce two bog standard Sith Lords into this game. But now here’s the money shot, we see the Sith beginning to crack under the pressure, they question they’re faith. There will be the slight manly tear from a Sith Lords eye and this is something that will twist your heart, imagine someone like Sion saying: - “I do not understand. This is trickery, Jedi trickery” it’s tearing at the fabric of the Sith. Now the purpose behind this is that the good guys always win, known fact in all movies and games in the end. With the Jedi practically beaten and questioning themselves in the first two Kotor games, it would be very interesting to see the morals of the Sith (oh yes they have them) picked apart and a Sith Lord destroyed not by Lightsaber but by words alone. (Possibly the final battle)
In the end, something happens (Dunno what) maybe with the defeat of the Current Sith Lord who is possibly not killed but left in a crazed heap begging for redemption (camera slowly zooming out with epic music) while his apprentice (watching the whole thing) sees this all as just Jedi trickery and returns to his roots of evil and takes over his Masters place as Dark Lord restoring the Dark/Light constant in the galaxy as there always is and always will be. The True Sith fade back into the fabric of the universe with a slightly changed perspective on events of the galaxy but are still as cryptic as Kreia’s Sudoku puzzle book.
Didn’t you mention Kreia at the beginning?
Yes. Yes I did. Kreia was the grand manipulator of events in Kotor 2 and by what she says, she pulled a few strings behind the scenes in Kotor 1 as well. I thought to myself, why not capitalize this and see Kreia as a True Sith who was too curious. Curious enough to get involved with galactic events and become all the things she was (Lightside, Darkside and a Darth too!) She blended in subtely with the galaxy but because of her nature as an uber Lightsided True Sith, it showed her up which is why Kreia is hard to identify as a Sith or Jedi as she could not blend in with both. (Remember, to the True Sith who are uber Lightside, the Jedi are like kids saying they want to be Superman when they are older[Likewise with the Sith]). Also, because Kreia was at heart into the tapestry of the universe being a True Sith and all, she was able to predict the future events for Exile as her last gift of advice (if you could call it that).
Amazing what you clock while on the Khazi. Eh?
