“All life exists to feed your power, my lord…and my life…my life is yours. I beg you, please. Let me die.”
“What do you wish to hear? That I once believed in the code of the Jedi? That I felt the call of the Sith, that perhaps, once, I held the galaxy by its throat? That for every good work that I did, I brought equal harm upon the galaxy? That perhaps the greatest of the Sith Lords knew of evil, they learned from me?”
Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
A grey Jedi/Sith, mentor to the (canonically female!) Jedi Exile, and earlier in life, Darth Revan. Kreia’s a mysterious manipulator who straddles the line between villain and ally, and one of the best written video game characters I’ve ever come across. She was, unfortunately, written out of The Old Republic - a moment of silence, everyone, please.
I would like to nominate HK-47 for Best Character Ever award.
“Know that much may happen here, but above all, do not forget this—you may trust in me. We cradle each other’s lives, and what threatens one of us, threatens us both. And if you find you cannot trust me, trust in your training. Trust in yourself. Never doubt what you have done. All your decisions have brought you to this point.”
There was a time in my life when I really hated Kreia’s character in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. Mostly because I was an idiot. Kreia’s one of the best antagonists I’ve seen in the expanded universe, mostly because she was neither here nor there on the Force spectrum, which is probably why I hated her so much at first.
I hated that she was never pleased with anything I did on either side of the spectrum. But after replaying the game several times, I realized that my favorite pieces of dialogue were always from her. Her philosophy, as stupid as it was to me, was compelling and now I’m utterly in love with the old witch.
If anything, she’s better than Bastilla. Because god, I hate Bastilla.
