I am seeking out an extremely difficult piece of information to find - the actual "birthdate" of Kyle Katarn. No, not his in-continuity birthdate - his real one - when was he conceived by the LucasArts Dev's?

Since the day probably will never be known, the month or quarter will have to suffice I suppose. I'm trying to locate the EARLIEST KNOWN mention of Kyle Katarn as a character. Whether it was in some obscure magazine interview with LucasArts developers or anywhere else.

When did "Kyle Katarn" first appear? It takes on average several years to develop a game like Dark Forces, so does anyone have information which can pin-point it to somewhere in 1993 or 1994?

Help me, JKII.NET - you're my only hope.

im not sure when, but since he was the one who captured the death star plans, george lucas may have tossed around the idea for SW:ANH, but didnt use it because of time constraints, and then the idea was used during the concepting of dark forces. well, thats probably far fetched, but it still would be a cool idea...

I believe he was born on Murchunmber Nornth, in the year of the Wusyminiiin.

In some interview someone that worked on DF said that the name was supposed to be provisory, It was used from the beginning of the development, but at the end they were used to it and hadnt thaught of anything better, so they kept the name

Thanks, Digl - that's about the best answer I've heard yet about Kyle's "birth." Now, can anyone tell me just when exactly the beginning of DF development was?
