Which Female KOTOR Character is your favorite!?!?!
 
Of all the female characters in KOTOR which is your favorite!?!?!

My favorite is Bastila, handmaiden and Visas!

Diego Varen 07-31-2007 03:02 PM

You forgot Mira and Kreia in the Poll.

Anyway, I voted for Bastila (KOTOR) and Brianna the Handmaiden (TSL).

Had the Poll also included Mira and Kreia, I would've voted them both too.

Emperor Devon 07-31-2007 03:13 PM

Kreia pwns all of them.

starwarsfreak1 07-31-2007 04:27 PM

i voted handmaiden,brianna shess a sweet fighter

JK24 07-31-2007 06:28 PM

My favourites are Bastila, Brianna(Handmaiden), Visas and Mira, although I kinda like them all. :)

Titanius Anglesmith 07-31-2007 08:52 PM

Kreia and Bastila, but definitely not for the same reasons.

MacTavish 08-01-2007 12:41 AM

Kreia, because of the wisdom.

Bastila, because of the hottness.

Sabretooth 08-01-2007 01:01 AM

You can all brand me "Darth Weirdo" for this, but Kreia was the only female character in the series I could bear. Her and Luxa. :naughty:

Weave 08-01-2007 03:39 AM

Bastila, Visas, and Kreia.

Visas needs some more love... she's the best of the TSL ladies :nod: ... (Kreia's a close second).

I whole-heartedly agree :nod:

One of the most developed RPG characters I've ever had the pleasure of having in a game. While some love her, and others love to hate her.. I think it's because of the fact she can stir such a response is what makes her so successful.

For me, Kreia made TSL much more enjoyable and gave me several routes in which to play my character...

While in KotOR, we had Bastila as an "acting" Master/Guide for you, she wasn't very convincing. She was more of a reactionary/response catalyst to me. Don't get me wrong, I thought she was great character, however the game keeps trying to convince us that she is this powerful Jedi, deserving of praise and capable as posing as a mentor. I never felt that way, even in the first playthrough before you knew the entire story. Despite her (optional) line where she claims she doesn't see herself as a "damsel in distress"... I often found myself trying to save her, be it physically or from herself and her overly emotional self-destructive mentality.

She made a helluva damsel, but never quite the mentor the game keeps trying to suggest (or rather, her characters' delusional self worth). In this factor (damsel), I thought she was an excellent RPG character. But then there came TSL.... ;)

Kreia really did fit the bill of Master/Guide. She told stories, she taught lessons and she actively tried to shape your way of thought as you progressed in the game. Just one example, on Nar Shadda when/if you give money to the beggar.. her little 'inference story' (cutscene when beggar gets beaten for the money you just gave them) really did make me, personally (not just my character), think twice about my actions in the game afterwards. Wow. Talk about influence... hehehe...

Any RPG character that can do that is an instant favorite. THAT was what I played RPG's all my life for. THAT was the experience I had wanted and it was great that TSL delivered it with such an auspicious character. After that one tiny moment.. I knew this game was going to be great (even despite it's flaws ;) )... and Kreia was that deciding factor (for me).

While I believe Visas could've very easily also taken the mantle, her lack of stage time and perhaps due to time constraints, lack of "as much" development (as Kreia) didn't get my vote. Quite possibly my 2nd favorite character (in TSL) and 4th overall favorite... just under Kreia/Jolee/Bastila.

Mira and Brianna? While interesting characters in their own respects and personalities.... meh... more 'eyecandy & dressup dolls'. They're my favorite to re-skin though :naughty: hehehe...

So, to make a short answer entirely too long.... Kreia == WIN, even moreso than Jolee I must admit, and that's alot to admit for this old coot.. :lol:

Kas'!m 08-02-2007 04:21 PM

Bastila, cos she was the first

Right There With Ya man...Finally someone with taste!!!:thumbsup:

Breger 08-03-2007 04:55 AM

Meh, hard to say.
I think Mission was one of my favorites, because of her attitude. Bastila, however, I stopped talking to after my first playthrough. I got tired of her ranting, and she wasn't that hot.
And then in TSL, I think Kreia was the one. She had, according to me, a somber attitude to life. And I liked how she interacted with the other characters.

igyman 08-03-2007 08:35 AM

They're all cool (and most importantly hot :naughty: ), except for Kreia and Juhani. Some parts of their stories were interesting, but as characters they were pretty boring.

Lord Revan63 08-03-2007 02:45 PM

ya think Kreia was good for a mentor but not a fav character of mine, and Juhani could be cool if she wasnt over tempered and a scary flirt.........am i right!!!!!

Could not agree with you more, I really wish there was more of that in RPG games. Very well written.

However I voted for the eye candy and cast my vote for Mira.

Nancy Allen`` 08-04-2007 12:08 AM

Revan and the Exile. Okay, that's a bit of a cop out. I like most of the main characters actually, though if I had to pick I'd choose Mission for K1, as she doesn't drag you down like other characters (Carth, Bastila, ect) might, and also for drawing out Revan, true Revan (swearing that Malek will pay). Though with Carth I can live with his emotional side. For K2, Mira. No question. For the most part she leaves her emotional baggage at the door where it should be, and as Mara Jade knock offs go she does a good job.

Alexander the Great 08-04-2007 01:58 AM

I voted for Mira. She has some personality, and she talks all fast which I like for some reason. Visas was OK, never raising her voice or getting pissed at you. But she bored me.

KOTOR4EVR 08-04-2007 03:34 AM

Does no one here like Mission? In my opinion she has the most character of all the females in KOTOR 1 and KOTOR 2. Plus she's rather attractive :)

Totenkopf 08-04-2007 04:14 AM

If you check post #18 or so in the "who's hotter thread" in the TTB section, you'll see that RedHawke is a dirty old mission fanboy ;). I think there are a few others, but they escape me at the moment. She had spunk, yet was somewhat underdeveloped storywise. But, annoying or not, Kreia was probably the most multidemensional of the female (maybe all) charachters.

KOTOR4EVR 08-04-2007 06:16 AM

I wonder why so few people like Mission, she has just as much character as anyone else, and looks good.

Nancy Allen`` 08-04-2007 08:01 AM

Didn't I say I liked Mission? Well I do. She's not emo like the others, and through her we get to see how Revan really is, canologically. If he was compelled to stop the Mandalorian threat, save Juhani from slavery and the like then he'd be moved by Mission's plight over losing Taris. And because of Mission I could never think of going dark side. That's just...ugh, it's just crossing a line.

Weave 08-04-2007 02:17 PM

*cough* Visas is best *cough*

Reclaimer 08-05-2007 07:04 AM

Mira is still FTW.

MrVorlon 08-05-2007 09:58 AM

I voted for Bastila, Handmaiden, Mira and Mission. I liked those female NPC's the most. I liked what they had to say to me, or what they said to strangers.

Bastila played the teacher and obedient servant to the Jedi Masters to a fault character. She was arrogant and condescending, but was vulnerable to self doubt as young people usually are. I liked that weakness in her. I could be the one in charge. She was a flawed and inexperienced teacher, trying her best to keep a terrible secret.

Mission and Mira, now these two have spunk. Mira's bad girl with a heart attitude made just won my heart over. How many bounty hunters keep their marks alive? And she has no doubt she can take out Handmaiden and Visas.

I liked how childish Mission can be, and I just loved the character's development over the game. She grows throughout the game from a naive girl worshiping her brother and overly defensive, to a mature teenager who can see people for they really are. Even when you're about to kill her, she still tries to appeal to your good side.

Handmaiden, what can I say. She a tough girl, a fighter, torn between two masters and prone to jealousy. Whether she's fighting half-naked, or just destroying stuff, it's always fun to have her around. It's fun when I use her to kick Atris' butt.

PoiuyWired 08-05-2007 02:56 PM

I hope the ONE vote on Juhani is not a "pity vote" though. Her model is kinda ugly(for a catgirl) but she does have a reasonable background. Too bad she is not well developed enough. There is so much more you can do with such character, like comparing her honorable vision with the vookies, or jokes between her and Mission, or her slaver being a rat(squib!)... list goes on and on.

Someone probably loves that accent. "I vill be your dooom!"

spark91 08-06-2007 11:10 PM

I voted for Bastila because... well i just like her character, i also voted for Mira because i liked her spunk though she can be difficult sometime, i voted for mission as well because i enjoyed toying with her about her age, and the fact that she is not your average 14 year old, which i admire (was she 14 i can't remember)

I'm rather glad that she wasn't a lame anime-styled catgirl. The elf deal was kinda lame, I would have liked her to look a little more cat-ish though, as some mods try their best to do.

But, overall, I'm rather fond of Juhani, though Mira got my vote, I find Juhani to be a more interesting character than most of the others. Mission got dumped in the sewers by her stupid brother, Bastila is miss prim+proper, Kreia is a manipulative witch, and really good at it, but I don't like it, and handmaiden gives a whole new definition to "ice". I'm 50/50 on Visas.

I dunno, you add in some of Juhani's removed lines and it definately improves her character....and I have a thing for girls with east-european accents. Blame the Baroness.

Allronix 08-07-2007 06:29 AM

In my house, Revan's LS female and Exile's male. (Alignment up for debate). I've gone on in other posts about it, though.

Bastila was pretty until she opened her mouth. I was very turned off by how she treated the other party members. And the "romance" dialogue? Egad, you'd think Lucas wrote it on an OFF day.

Juhani - Voted for her. Game mechanics, she's a freaking tank with Force Powers. If you have heavy lifting to do, send her and Canderous ahead. Hell, they'd probably clean out the Mos Eisley cantina in nothing flat. Story-wise? She really is a sweet lady. I wanted to reach through the screen and give her a bug hug. She needs a hug. OK, she's got luggage to unload - so does everyone else on the boat.

Mission - In fanfic, she ends up being the crew's heart, the catalyst for cohesion among the crew aside from Revan's charisma. She's truly a good egg, despite all that's happened to her, she doesn't sink into bitterness or despair. Quite telling that she and Carth are highest on the LS scale. Mission is loyal, good-natured, sunny, and smart. She's the first person to stand up for you in the Leviathan aftermath. I find myself unable to play DS (save one time), because I can't really bring myself to kill her, and because I find myself saying "I'm not going to Force Persuade/cheat/kill that guy - not in front of the kid."

Kreia - I call her a misplaced Bene Gesserit, but the old hag is one of the most twisted concoctions to ever grace the SW universe. She is equal parts Vergere and Palpatine, the nastiest kind of puppet-master. That wondrously twisted concoction was the only thing that held the mess of K2 together in the slightest, and that's a small miracle.

Visas - She is a broken, sad woman. I never felt I reached her, even with full influence. I wanted to hug Juhani, but Visas, I half-wondered if a hug would crumble her to dust, she seemed so frail. I suppose she will come off better for me once I write her.

Brianna - The best argument for a Male Exile. She had the closest thing to a full arc that K2 can offer. Starting out as shunned, the "least" of her sisters, and taking so little pride in herself that she does not even own her name...to questioning her teachings, embracing her heritage, and returning full circle to best all of the sisters that treated her like dirt - Cinderella at the ball (LS) or Carrie at the prom (DS).

Mira - the cross-classing scene was beautiful. Everyone should play LS once just to see it. Incredible. Yet, she didn't do much for me. She stuck me as trying way too hard. She played a lot of the same role Mission did in K1 - the good person in a bad slum, but like the rest of K2, I could not imagine her connecting with the rest of the cast. I did like the zingers she threw at Atton, though.

Its her skinning that makes the model bad, though a different hairstyle and bigger ears would help also. I darken her amrkings and move them around a bit with a bit of makeup and a pair of CAT EYES and whola, she looks much better.

But yeah its better than an anime catgirl. Plus, I have to agree with her voice.

Well, British accent is not bad really, but the "romance" dialogue is still better than what GL himself can cough up... *ahum* looks at PT... *ahum*

Sweet? Wow, I always wonder what would happen if you can call her a "sweet lady" in front of her. Obviously you need to be a female to spark her up, but still.

Thats actually part of her Charisma. ^^ Also, it is really rewarding when she gives herself to you. Too bad you can't do more with her (no not the naughty things, though she is more than capable of those, and in too many kinky ways).

Thing is, if there would be more dialogues, and less chunked out ones, then it would be much more rewarding.

As for her crumbling to dust with a hug... trust me, she would be smiling in estacy if she can die like that in the hands of someone she loves.

I love the Carrie at the prom comment though. :) Oh, if you have her in the default Handmaiden dress(not her mom's) then her outfit turns black when she goes DS. But that aside she is a bit of a cold tuna really. And yeah, a new haircut would go her some good, as would a better undies model, since she prefers to be half nikkid.

Miles Edgeworth 08-08-2007 04:20 PM

Atris isn't on the poll...

Lord Revan63 10-20-2007 02:29 PM

Im glad others find Bastila Super lol.......She is the second most important character in KOTOR 1 and if ya think maybe 30% in KOTOR 2

Meowster 10-21-2007 10:59 PM

I chose four differant characters. Who are they? Juhani, Kreia, Mission, and Bastila. Why?

Juhani: A very well made character, whom due to being scrapped then added in at the last second, is missing something. She had so many horrible things happen to her, that I just can't say anything horrible to her...I want to join with Allronix, and give Juhani a hug too. :) I loved listening to her backstory, and always sympathized with the Cathar. Russian accents are cool too!(Plus, Juhani can pWn.)

Kreia: Hands down, one of my absolute favorite villians. For one, she had SUPERB voice acting! Two...her lectures made me listen, and actually think about her reasonings. She was tragic too, being blamed by the council for Revan, and then trying to save everyone from her belief of a tyrincal (is it a word?) force.

Mission: What a wonderful source of spunk. A teenaged girl, with an upbeat personality, and being the most forgiving person (imo) on the party. She was the first person to stand up, and say that "___ is not Revan. ___ is ___." and forgives you of anything you've ever done. Its hard for me to play darkside...its really hard to kill her. I just can't kill the kid.

Bastila: Ooh, the eye-candy and the british accent! w00t to you Jennifer Hale for your remarkable voice acting! Bastila was a fairly 'rude' person at the start, but at the end I felt like I was truely trying to bring someone I loved back to me.

mur'phon 10-31-2007 06:20 PM

Since I have only played kotor, I would have to say Bastilla. Unlike the dressing dolls I had encountered in other rpgs who worship the pc, Bastilla is a snob. The very first time I talked to her and exepected a gratefull sultry response, I recieved a response that made me smile for the rest of the day. My jaw made a hole in my desk aswell.
:drop2:

Corinthian 10-31-2007 06:25 PM

I had been exposed to Viconia and, to a lesser extent, Jaheira from Baldur's Gate, on the other hand, so I wasn't totally surprised by Bastila being a pain in the neck. Still, I vastly prefer Bastila to any of the irritatingly servile ones from TSL, with the exception of Kreia who was just a female Magnificent Bastard, except poorly executed, and Mission was worthless and obnoxious. Juhani was just angsty.

Serpentine Cougar 11-02-2007 12:53 AM

Mission Vao. Especially with this mod.
