Nothing much, to tell you the truth. But it still seems like Bastila falls for a male Revan for absolutely no reason whatsoever, DS or LS. And she knew you were a former Sith Lord who (directly or indirectly) slaughtered millions. Carth also recovered a little faster from that reveal then I thought he would, yet at least his feelings for a female Revan develop over time. You can still act like a jerk around Bastila as a male the whole game and she'll like you... Am I the only one thinking that seems a little off?

Oh, and sorry for blaming LA, who approving it. Should I blame Bioware, the writers, or both?

Exactly! I blame Mical for getting me into the habit of playing with the volume off...

I got pretty sick of all his history stuff after a while. Never could get any more dialog options up...

See, this is interesting. For Revan, I have always used the guy with long hair because his face has become solidified as the Revan in my mind. For the Exile, I haven't really settled on any one face yet. I've played around with several, including some fan-made skins.

We may end up learning that they look entirely different from whats in game.

If you're referring to the comic series, I certainly hope not. Providing canonical faces from Revan and the Exile will be the worst thing they could possibly do. Many avid Star Wars fans will feel obligated to view the characters in this light, thus ruining the feeling that their in-game counterparts are your characters. They've already restricted this feeling enough by canonizing their genders and alignments.

See, the point of these characters is that they are so obscure that they could have been anybody. That's where a lot of the appeal comes from. KOTOR 2, unlike the games in the Jedi Knight series, does not presuppose that the player chose the light side ending in order to continue the story. It works along either path, which is where the appeal comes in that anything could have happened. Canonizing the light side ending to the first game ruined this appeal for many people, myself included.

While I accept these decisions as official canon, I can't say I like them. LucasArts should have let it all remain a big mystery. Mystery is good sometimes. It keeps things interesting. Not everything needs to be answered. Good examples of this are Yoda's and Palpatine's pasts, as well as the mystery surrounding Anakin's conception.

Anyway, in a roundabout way of saying it: I vote "no" to giving Revan and the Exile canonical faces.

I think they've already canonized Revan's face. Or they've at least mentioned which one they intended to be the real Revan.

Really? Can you tell me where I may find this information?

If that's true, at least they're going with an already-existing face. I might forgive them if it's "Mullet Man."

Also, is the "they" you speak of Dark Horse Comics, in reference to future appearances in upcoming issues?

I think it is, but I don't care that much so I haven't bothered making up a reference list. I've simply come across various different threads here over the last few years that have made such claims.

I agree. Thats why I always choose head number 2 or 5. They are my favorite heads, and I also think they are the prettiest heads. The rest of them look weird or look like men. But it would be nice if the Exile was actually ethnic.

Mine too. It's the pretty one with the loose hair. I like her because she's the only female Revan model that doesn't look like a dude.

when i play k1 or k2, i just cant seem to play it any other way than the ones i did the first time i played. the heads i chose then have completely associated themselves in my mind with the characters. like when i read fanfics, i picture those heads. i always play as #12. i never thought she looked like atris... shock1
i just cant choose another head when i play. for me its like taking some random person and calling them <insert favorite franchise character her> yknow?
anyone else have that?

EDIT:

its also great when you find artwork of your fave head:
check out aimo's deviantart page:http://aimo.deviantart.com/
i love her kotor art



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

Matter of opinion I guess. I never thought any of them really looked male... And I'm still routing for an ethnic Exile. Too many of the typical heroines end up as overly beautiful, young, long-haired blondes, with blue eyes. Its rather annoying after a while, and the Exile is apparently a hardened, jadded war veteran. And a Jedi before that. She shouldn't nessesarily look like a model, IMO.

Oh, and to clarrify as to why I'm still alive: the fan-girls brought me back to life to try to convince me to become one of them... (eye-twitch). As such, I am typing this post from a safe-house.

Well, as the others have said, I think 7 looks right for the female exile. I don't know why. Its just that its different from the other pictures.

I started out once with 15, didn't like it so switched to 12, and STILL didn't like it, so switched to Bastila!

Though, when I played on the console, I used 12. Just a random choice, really.

None of the male faces seemed to fit for the Exile. None of the Female fit Revan to me.

I thought that #9 stood above the rest and was exactly what I imagined of her. A few others were nice enough, but didn't fit in my mind. I do prefer Yuthura ban most for custom heads.

I just realized that I forgot to say which heads were my favorites!

LS: 9. Or a red Twi'lek.
DS zombie: Atris (12)
DS w/yellow eyes: 14. Or 9 again. (I just love 9, I don't know why...)


As far as the male heads go, I don't think ANY of them fit for Revan OR the Exile!!!!!!!
