Biographies

There's a new section of the holonet up on SWTOR.com titled "Biographies".

We are thrilled to introduce a new expansion to our HoloNet archives: Biographies! Now you can view profiles of several of the galaxy’s most notable figures. Each entry highlights someone you may meet, travel with, or fight alongside or against as you help determine the future of the galaxy in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

Just like the Classes, Planets, and Timelines sections, the Biographies archives will be expanded regularly, so check back often to make sure you get the latest updates!
I'm really excited for this - especially learning about some of the characters from the Deceived Trailer that I've been wondering about.

You can check it out yourself here.

I just read through the available biographies - there are only 3 right now - and found Satele's to be particularly interesting. Avoid the following if you'd like to read it for yourself.

This is great.

I think I translated the biography pages' aurebesh well enough.

Satele's says:

Nem'ro's says:

Kilran's says:

Make of all those what you will.

That's awesome - I hadn't even noticed the aurebesh at first. What does the top line say? Maybe it's my monitor here at work, but all I could make out is "Welcome to the h..." (this was on Satele's bio page, although it might be the same on the others too). Obviously the hints you found on Satele's page offer lots of intriguing story options.

The top line says "Welcome to the Holonet". It says that on the planet and class pages too, no worries there.

*edit*
I'll admit some of them may have typos. Nem'ro's line about Rattataki Body guards is down the middle, and the grid gets in the way, at least of the first few letters. Same for Kilran's bit about "Chasing the General". The rest of it should be accurate though.

Hm, Kilran (nothing says evil like having 'kill' in your name, right?) apparently loves wine and hates Togruta. Guess he doesn't like the Clone Wars cartoon either.

Also, these biographies confirm my suspicion that Satele is a descendant of Bastila's mom.


Let's kill ourselves.

Nem'ro's mentions the Black Sun as one of his enemies. I guess the Black Sun have been around forever. :P

Hey, wasn't the Jedi Order supposed to be reestablished on Telos, like how Kreia's prophecy foretold?

Oh, wait... I forgot.

We still have 3500 years to move to Telos. :P

I know a lot of people are interested in this kind of stuff, but really, it's just fluff. I hope by E3 we have significant details on how the different gameplay systems actually work.

But with TOR's story focus, the combat is just fluff to get you to the next part of the story. So there.

Haha, good point. I definitely am interested in the story, but no so much right now with a year or more till the game comes out. I'll be more interested in this type of thing as we get closer to release, which is probably when they will do the opposite of that and start telling us how the game actually works.

We'll have years to dissect the gameplay into formulas after it comes out. It's best we take in the whole story while we can before the gameplay taints us. Plus the interesting lore between the lines in these bios, particularly on Satele's 2 distant ancestors.

I agree with Rogue. I pretty much only care about story right now.

When did she say that?

EDIT: Why are we told about the leader of the Jedi Order, but nothing about the leader of the Sith Empire?

It wasn't outright stated, but certainly implied at the end, particularly with Handmaiden carrying on the torch as a Jedi historian. Naturally, Telos would be a perfect place to rebuild the Order until it has become fully-functioning, and then it can move on to Coruscant.

BioWare is banking on a slam-dunk plot twist... that reveals the Emperor's true identity! How epic indeed!

Then in other words, no, Kreia did not predict any such thing.

More likely they can't think of any way to make him interesting and are going to avoid the issue indefinitely.
