So I’ve been playing Star Wars: The Old Republic again with my girlfriend lately. Shooting up bad guys, leveling, having laughs, and saying extremely mean – and deserved – comments at Corso (She plays a Trooper, I play a Smuggler). However, as we traversed the threshold that is Chapter 2, we came to a slight… problem. See, at the start of the Smuggler storyline in chapter 2, you meet one Akaavi Spar:
She’s a bad ass Mandalorian Zabrak on a mission to avenge the death of her clan. Her early appearances are marked with events such as blowing up a small army of dudes, beating you getting into a highly fortified prison, then walking through a door with Imps beyond it, the door shutting only to open seconds later and for the Imps to be dead. She is the very embodiment of Bad Ass and stands with other paragons of Bad Assitude like Spike Spiegal, Master Chief, The Road Runner, and Clint Eastwood.
This was my reaction to meeting Akaavi:

I’m sure it will all work out just fine. Right?
