Oh, geeze. Talk to her on the Ebon Hawk - if you tell her your party members are friends and not tools, she says you've learned nothing. Honestly, though, this is such a fundamental part of Kreia's personality that I find it nitpicky of you to ask for specifics.

Well, no, I think that if Kreia actually did care about the poor sods who get in DS!Exile's way, she would say so. She tries to hammer all of her actual teachings and principles into you at every turn.

No, she isn't. If Jedi followed her philosophy, a lot more people would be dead and non-Jedi who actually know stuff about them (unlike the common citizens of the galaxy) would have a lot more reason to despise them.

That statement portrays Kreia as impulsive to a nearly childish degree, and doesn't really address the point anyway. (Don't know how Sever Force translates to soul crushing, either)

What you're saying is that because Atton used to be a really bad guy, what Kreia did to him was justified, then.

No. The crazy wookiee didn't even want to live anymore, and she did nothing with him except send him to get killed by Mira.

Selfish, for one thing, and for another she doesn't care who gets in the way.

That Kreia's plan would not have worked (if that is the case) does not lighten the fact that she was willing to kill such a ridiculous number of people - and for what? So she can prove herself right in a pissing match with the Council.

I don't want this to turn into a malignant tumor of a debate (seeing as we're primarily talking about Kreia at this point), but this is far from the first time I've heard someone bull**** about how the Council was more responsible for the Republic's near-destruction than Revan (who could have told them about the True Sith instead of declaring war on the Republic). Said argument has not grown any more compelling with age. Besides, the real meat of the problem is the whole Sith thing. If Revan had won the Mandalorian Wars without that particular side-effect, then I would be willing to agree with his justification.

To the degree that she literally believes that said pupil can do no wrong whatsover and bases her entire life around trying to prove that belief? **** yeah.
