I have to say I like the Handmaiden better, but only because I have only played the game as a male. I will have to try it out as a female someday.

Disciples name is Miguel?

I always play as a female. It's just a better view. Take that as you will.

I voted for Handmaiden because she's more useful then MICAL.

He's quite a weird mix. Soldier/Medic/Consular...what the hell?

As a soldier, he's quite competent, but nowhere as good in combat as the Handmaiden or Mandalore.

As a consular, he lacks enough base wisdom to be really strong. But I guess he's a well balanced consular.

I voted for the Handmaiden anyway...

This is why:

After Visquis' invitation:
Atton - {Sarcastic}Well, good thing it's not a trap.
Disciple - {Thinking}No, Atton, I think it may be a trap.

Well, good thing the Disciple isn't the slightest bit naive.

I know the Handmaiden doesn't look so bright in that scene either, but she doesn't have to think about this being a trap. Despite all, I don't dislike the Disciple, but it's the Handmaiden any time.

Yeah about that, whats the deal there? Why are they called Deciple/HandMaiden and not their real names?

Anyway, I always play through with female characters (lets face it, the male profile choices aren't that good for 1 or 2) so I have only had Deciple in my party. While he can be nice to have along since he praises your every good deed (and for me was the first jedi I could train), his character was totally lacking and rather boring. I'm unsure how HandMaiden will be as far as her story goes, but really ANYTHING would be an improvement over Deciple.

I'm a girl but I still vote for Handmaiden. Disciple is way too serious!

In Kotor 1 I very much enjoyed the humour in the game, no matter whether you played female or male. Female dialogues with Carth were hilarious. You could sometimes argue with him and the dialogue options cracked me up more than once. Per example, to one of my heartless anwers he replied " I could probably get the same kind of attention from a blaster rifle." and I could answer: " Oh, I think there's things I can do that a blaster can't"

(There were also Jolee's, Canderous and HK's stories that I enjoyed a lot but it's another topic)

I found that in Kotor 2, especially when playing a female PC, everything was way too serious. At least when you play a male PC you have the girls getting jealous: handmaiden can drop you there, there's the dancing thing, etc. Overall, handmaiden has more personality than Disciple who has just an accent (and he looks terrible when playing DS but luckily this can be fixed easily).

...and Atton, apart when you can turn him into a Jedi, he has not much to talk about except pazaak

I have to say, I have a thing for people with a british accent. I must say, I do like Disciple's accent. What he lacks in personnality, he compensates with a nice accent.

All praise to Brianna. Also her hair could be longer and she shouldn't be that much uptight. God!!
"It's oviously a trap"-Handmaiden
"Nothing gets by you does it?"- Atton.

What a blond (no offence).
Still Handmaiden is better than Disciple, because Disciples a guy, and so am I, so I'd get girls, with lots of curls(rhymes )

Also, Disciples stupid, he gives a bow when u meet him. 18th century, + I was a guy when he did it so he's gay.

That's actually offensive.

People bowed down to kings. I mean, they all wanted to have sex with the king.

I think every guy agrees that they'll choose Handmaiden over Disciple because she's hot, no need to make it a matter of sexual preferences.

Bowing is a sign of respect, so get your facts straight first.

i choose handmaiden for the sexist reason that you get to fight with both of you in your underwear, if we had dojo's with female martial arts teachers that looked and trained like her i'd be taking classes every day


So long and thanks for all the fish

Bowing to other men is gay, now knealing is straight but bitchy.

You've never been to an old 17th century play have you?
I mean, all those actors are gay because they're bowing down to the public.

Since when did they make you the one who can decide what homosexuals and heterosexuals do?

Definately for me it's the handmaiden.
I especially like her when she's darkside and starts puttin on the heavy make-up. She's so Goth.

I hate to say it but change Disciple's starting class to Tech Specialist (requires some stat editing), fix the errors in his dlg file, and edit out some of his more repetitive combat vo's and he's the best damned party member you could have. Heals you, replenishes your FP, portable lab bench, mad skillz, and a fairly decent consular? Forget about it.

Handmaiden

Why, because of all the points mentioned above. And you can learn battle precognition from her. (adds wisdom modifier to defense). I think it is one of the most usefull feats in the game, yet it can only be gained as male. I don't see any advantage from disciple, only an extra mouth to feed on your ship.
And yes I find her way hotter than disciple

I find that the Disciple is not a very thrilling character, he's more like an ancient teller of fairy-tales, if you get my point ^_-

[x] Handmaiden

Since she is more useful in combat and her character has a deeper background.

Not as near as annoying as Carth even tho i didn't think Carth was that bad, and as a DS female your face goes evil as well.

I like the Handmaiden better, because I just thought she had a better role than Di in the game even thought they basically have the same abilities.

The Handmaiden is more useful than the Disciple. Combining Soldier with Jedi Consular is an unwise class chose, because Disciple wisdom is simply too low, and the result is that the character is weak, as a Jedi Consular, for example compared to Kreia. In the same way, the Handmaiden is well balanced as a Soldier/Guardian, and is possible to have her in the party even if you are not using a male playing character (using the Handmaiden mod created by stoffe-mkb). Also, the Disciple has that good boy attitude that I never liked in a character (like Carth in Kotor I, but Carth is a pivotal character, and well suited for his class, Disciple is not, especially as a Jedi). So I voted the Handmaiden, even if I'm a girl.


There are no heroes, only unrecognized villains.
