When reading other threads, I noticed that most, though not all, of the posters hated Disciple with a passion. Myself included. But when you think about it, there are always annoying characters. Everyone hates G0-T0, for instance (sorry, nearly everybody), but he doesn't seem to get as much conversation as Disciple. So I was just hoping we could get a discussion of legitimate reasons why people hate or don't hate him.

 

 

My personal explanation:

Not only is he a stupid, stuck up, super-pro Republic idget (I play lightside, and he still annoys me to death), with the cut content, he ends up being pretty much the only real romance option as female. You can get some lines from Atton early on, but even if you have 0 influence with him, Disciple is always the one who comes to cheer you up in the cargo hold. So annoying....

In D&D terms, he's the archtypical Paladin ... the one noone really wanted to play. While I enjoyed playing a Paladin, mine was the grubby "common man's" Paladin - the one who never had enough money for armor better than rusty chain mail because he gave the rest away to the more needy (not the party Thief, either).

 

He's too "polished" - perfect hair, snooty (fruity?) accent, etc. - you're almost afraid to take him into battle because you're afraid he'll break (when, in fact, he's a very capable fighter). He's the anti-Canderous (and most everyone likes Canderous because he's not polished).

 

Once you get past the fruity, frothy exterior, and learn his back story, he's not a terrible character, but for the most part, he is unnecessary (except as the third piece of a female Exile-Atton love triangle).

We can never have enough of these polls, no matter how many times they are repeated.

 

Disciple is weird and too uptight.

I hate Disciple because he's a man. Give me a fresh nubile female woman anytime! Goth and vampiric would be additional hotness bonuses.

S'not that I hate him, I find him repulsive. All that loyalty to the Republic is sickening. As I said before, the part after Dantooine when he walks backwards is creepy. I don't use him so I can't complain about his hissyfit cry "You have left me an opening" :o:x ....wait I just did! :D Not as good as Carth's "Down you go!" :blink: {Edited, for overly suggestive use of emoticons.} ^_^

My reason: well, for those that know him pretty well, he has a *10* wisdom. That is *not* good, if you want to advance him.


I'd go with 2d3, 3d6, 1/2d7, 1d10, 14d12, 8d20, 13 quarters, and a groundhog.

 

I'm not sure if you'll need all that, but if you figured out a system from it, it would be the greatest in the world.

It was the same with Carth. Too whiny many said. Of course if you played a female, Bastila was a cold fish to have to carry along for the ride, playing a male character she was fun to tease.

 

As to Disciple;

Perhaps the dislike comes from him portrayed as a straight goody-two shoes character and many play DS. Or even when some are playing grey/LS characters, his path/way of thinking is too light side?

 

I thought Disciple was a decent character all in all, perhaps a little too righteous for my taste if anything but better than Atton for a romance option. (Sorry ladies I thought Atton was ok but he was no Carth or Han Solo). Bao Dur and Candyman should have been romance options...sigh

That just goes to show that K2 is an incomplete game... I blame Troika.

At least Troika's games had a complete ending.

Even though their games were usually released with tooo manu bugs compared to other games

 

 

Disciple was too much of a wishy washy goody goody.

Well, if only Mical had some depth in terms of character, like say own thoughts about Sith assassinations and occurrences. Affiliation with Republic is likely part of his story, and has to have some other connection to his purpose besides communicating with Carth sometimes.

Oh, you meant personality :(

 

If that's the case, I'd have to agree with vaxen83 wholeheartidly.

I like disciple. He's a calm guy, has a cool accent, and he's a walking lab bench. He is also a soldier, that starts off with decent combat feats.

Sometimes I miss the Baldurs Gate option .. to kill the annoying team members and grab their gear only to sell it to the nearest pirate/what-have-you..

That was a major draw back of the Kotors not being able to force attack people, like undesirable party members.
