This thread will really only make sense to those who have played Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight, or seen an image of the original portrayal of Jan Ors.

Did it bother anyone else that between JK and JK2, Jan suddenly became caucasian? I mean I don't think we can make the argument that she was caucasian in JK. I suppose you could say she was caucasian in Dark Forces, but I don't really think you can judge that from a sketch and a square model.

So did Jan undergo facial reconstruction, somewhat like Michael Jackson? Not only did they both completely change their race, but Jan is even starting to look like Michael Jackson. She could be his white, slightly prettier sister! Haha, Janet Jackson. Oh I crack myself up...

Um, this should be in the rants and raves forum. There were no cutscenes performed by actors in JK2, so the difference between JK Jan and JK2 Jan wouldn't matter: one is a computer-generated model, and one is the real actor. And, yes, I do think she was caucasian in JK. There was just some funny lighting going on at some times, but I remember that she was white. If you still have JK, watch the cutscene with Kyle and Jan on that repair ship...I think the cutscene is called Kyle's Dream or something like that. It had something to do with a dream, tho. :nodding:

I have never thought of Jan that way, but yes it is very wierd. I never liked JAn in JO/JA anyways, i liked her in JK followed by DF (JO/JA made everythign ugly, people or otherwise :p ). (>ZemmurkTrooper<)

Jan Ors was cool in DF, but I always prefered DF because of the cool cinematics. I like it better with the actors, plus Kyle didn't look like an old pappy.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Raven apparently never saw what any of the actors from JK looked like Hmm... I wonder..... Oh good God! The Jacksonitis is spreading!

I swear, I couldn't make a joke to save my life...
