After having to listen to Quinn’s bullshit for however-many levels (I should have taken Vette with me instead), I was looking forward to a new companion.


I’m sure you guys know this already, but for those living under a rock: when Jaesa Wilsaam becomes your companion, you can choose light side or dark side for her.  As a true-neutral warrior, I was struggling over that and even hit escape, which I almost never do.

Finally, I decided on dark, mostly because how would her staying light side and being on my crew even make sense?  Besides, moralizing jedi are so boring.  I should know, I played one… two.

When I find her on my ship, she’s dressed in a belly-shirt, and her eyes have already gone orange.  Wow, that was a fast 1000 dark side points, Jaesa!


The conversation went something like this:

Me: How you liking the dark side?

Her: This is very different, but I’m really liking it so far.

Me: Welp, glad to have you aboard.

Her: Can I ask you a question?

Me: Sure fire away.

Her: So like, the jedi never let us um… um… CAN I DATE BOYS?

Me: BSOCK whomever you like.  In fact please do.

Her: Why didn’t I go dark side sooner?  This is fucking awesome.

Imagine what this conversation would be if I were a male sithie.  I immediately elbowed my husband, who is pre-Jaesa on his marauder and insisted “OMG YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE DARK!” I am anxiously looking forward to that conversation boy-side.


Jaesa Wilsaam Is Better Than Quinn — 2 Comments

  1. Dark Side will always be better, for everything, ever, except Mass Effect where “Renegade” just means “Asshole”.

    Now give me all your credits and jump into the central pit.

  2. I may be odd in that I like the SWTOR stories but in some ways prefer to know some of the big picture story elements. Knowing that the choice with Jaesa was coming was a big part of why I chose Sith Warrior, as it seems very lore appropriate and I was not disappointed (though Chapter 2 has been underwhelming to date).

    My Warrior is male, somewhat mixed alignment (it’s remarkable to me how Lawful Evil doesn’t seem to be a choice for the Warrior, if you don’t want LS points you must murder brutally for no good reason), and actually turned down the romance arc with poor Vette because I didn’t feel like repairing my affection with her just to get the legacy unlock. Part of me is tempted to go in exactly the opposite direction, with a Warrior who compulsively takes the LS option, romances Vette, and keeps Jaesa good.
