Don't you pretty much HAVE to be one of the Jedi who followed Revan? You were a Jedi who fought in the Mandalorian wars. I mean, they have to tell you that for a reason - with stories and such, you aren't just given information for the fun of it. A comment like that, no matter how unconsequential it may seem carries weight. IE: they tell you you were in the wars. The wars were a massive back-theme for KOTOR. And didn't many of the Jedi who went "fall"? Interestink . . .
But that's a good point - maybe you didn't follow Revan to the "dark side" and so you were banished from not only the Jedi Order (for disobeying the Masters) but also from the Dark Lord's side.
<< hehe, it's so cute!
