UT of the Exile, pages 12, 13 by AshleyKayley UT of the Exile, pages 12, 13 by AshleyKayley
Been a long time, I know. Speaking of time, I had wayyyyy too much into this spread, but I felt that the Exile's moment of reconnection to the force should be fairly epic. After being without it for ten years, and losing it in such a traumatic manner, Exile should be a least a little emotionally invested into this moment with the force. That's my opinion, anyway. In the game, they basically glossed over the whole affair. No drama, no big relief. Just, "Hey! Now you're suddenly going to get your force powers back after years of nothing because we know you don't want to go more than ten minutes of gameplay without it!"

I'm really attached to the last panel of this thing. I'm getting better at color and light!

Thanks for looking!

Wow, you turned an 'Alright force powes!' moment in the game in to a far more epic and meanful turning point that makes me want to see the Exile's ten years without the force just to enjoy this part even more. Awesome job,

Hey is Meetra a Jedi Consular or did you give her that colored lightsaber? (If you didn't know the Exile's canon name is Meetra Surik)

I just want you to know that I love this comic! KOTOR and KOTOR 2 are my favorite games of all time and I think that they both have absolutely amazing story lines! It's so great to see them in comic form :)

Speaking of which, I still got it: [link]

I made her hair a bit more blonde, instead of the grayish blonde, and made her eyes sky blue, to symbolise her touch with the light side, which I always plays either way. Tried dark side once, felt horrible.

For her tattoos, I figured out a story that those were the victory marks of the first world she helped save during the Wars. She kept them as a reminder that she would defend the innocents and beat the Mandalorians. :)

Nice! I like it. Wish I knew how to do mods. :( Yeah, I've never been able to play any of my characters in any games as evil. I feel bad whenever I try to do something slightly mischievous, even. However, I don't have a problem writing evil or drawing it. I think the issue must be how much I invest into my character. My friends always say, "it's not you, it's a video games." And I still end up feeling bad if I use a harsh tone on someone in-game, let alone destroy their life. This does not in any way impeded me from killing the bad guys, though. I swing through their ranks with gleeful abandon yelling "I'm saving the world!" Okay, so maybe it's not like THAT, but...

Yeah, in the end, I despised my character when I played evil. Didn't like them at all. Its similiar with other role-playing games as well. I feel happy when I do good deeds, helping people. Might just be my character.

When I think about it, its was a time since I played the Kotor games. I was pretty young then. Still a teenager. Might be interesting to see what I will do now when I'm an adult... :XD:

Yah, another page! :dance: T

This makes me remember all the mods I had for the game too, like the ones who changed the characters' portrait. I even managed to look up one for my Exile, while changing a few features to make it look good. XD

Really love all this depth, since it makes us care about the character. :love:

You're right in that the game did gloss over the reconnection to the Force affair.
Good job in portraying it. It's interesting to see the Exile's flashbacks of events that occured before the events of the game. ^^

Looks very nice and I love the idea of flashbacks to when she was a Jedi. That last panel with her with that green lightsaber actually makes me see the vast difference of what she once was and what she has become since losing the force. If this fan series of the events of KotOR II progresses long enough I can't wait to see what she will look like by the end of the series. :D

Green is my favorite color and I always played KotOR I and II as a Jedi Counselor but I have to ask why did you choose a green lightsaber? For a similar reason I did, just cause green is a great color for your character, or something else? That said if you really carry this series over many key events of KotOR then you best remember to make sure her previous lightsaber was green.

Though you do need to fix the typo in that last text block where you use the letter "k" for the letter "I".

Just read your comment after typing my initial reaction I find myself greatly agreeing with you... it's a real shame the game glossed over the Exile's likely thoughts to regaining the force. If there is ever a movie or book it will be an epic failure on it's part to not delve deeper into this like you said.

Though as much as it was due to not wanting to slow down the action it likely was also since they wanted the game to be role playing where the fan fills in that detail rather than being told... since a sith character would likely be egotistical about it, when a Jedi would be trying to keep her emotions in check but both being utterly confused and yet happy since she is after all human. After all to a Jedi or Sith being cut off from the force is literally the worst thing they fear... to a true Sith (aka not Kreia) it means being lower than even a droid or ant and to a Jedi it means they will never become one with the force nor are a part of it's will, and both view it as being doomed to cease existing upon there death. So in either case the game developers couldn't have such a scene with an undefined player only one light/dark side choice into the game.

So in the end I can't blame obsidian for just having her be a bit confused but you're right that once the character is defined from the following (male/female and light/dark) that having a moment such as this is vital.

Thanks for leaving lengthy comments! I really do appreciate getting to read them! :D

Yes, there have been major changes in my Exile's perceptions of the world and herself since losing the force. I really hope I get to stick with this long enough to cover all of those changes.

Green and red are my favorite colors, but red is right out if you want to be anywhere need good to ambiguous in a Star Wars game. The description of a Consular set down in Kotor 2 isn't entirely what I had in mind for my Exile, but if you look up the Old Republic description for Consulars in the new game, that would be much closer. I like the idea that she was originally a peace-maker and strategist, who went to war to defend the galaxy, though the Council forbade it.

You're right that it would have been difficult for Obsidian to put emotion into the reconnection with the force scene, but it still felt cheap when it happened. But hey, that's what makes creating a fancomic fun! Fleshing out all those underdeveloped moments and relationships!
