An idea . . . have be enter-able only after the Temple Rooftop showdown. You can then have a recruitment mod utilize the empty space in the selection screen (whether it's from the dark side or light side choice doesn't really matter.)
Granted you wouldn't be keeping the character long but at least that means you wouldn't have to write an extensive back story. And how often do you have cannon fodder as a party NPC?
