Yes well, another RPG thread. We all know that canonically Revan is a man and the Exile is a woman. Even tho when we played for the first time back all of those years, we didnt know. So we picked up whatever we felt like and we were happy with it. After finding out the canon desitions, i felt kind of sad since for a long time i played a woman Revan and a male Exile. I liked it since for example Revan could had the romance with Carth, plus the back history of Alek (Malak) with her was appeling. I mean its for me more dramatic that Revan trus a lover for be at her side, then he gets consumed and backstaves her. Or the aftermath guilt feelings of leading Malak to the dark, killing some one she loved etc, etc. Bastila as a good friend. Tho those posiblities will fall into fandom XD. As for the exile, i like the option of romance more if he was a guy, as well as the leading, the wound in the force he had to sustain. Atton, as Kreia said was a fool, and the fact that Mical and Bao, could all be in love with a female Exile was some what disgusting. While a male Exile was more capable to cut short his feelings and lead em all to the victory. :P
Well thats my opinion, remeber i already know the canon. Comment ur preferences :)
Hey welcome dude but not to post egre. Check the game forums and you will find a Kotor thread happy hunting:)
I prefer a male because I find men easier to relate to, considering I am one. I like to pretend that I am my character in the game...
I agree with you Xellas. The possiblities for a female revan and a male exile are much more appealing. I felt that a romance between (that leader of the handmaidens, whos name I forgot) and the exile was a much better storyline for why the handmaiden leader was so attached to the exile.
I think it's clear that Revan was meant to be played as male due to the storyline of Bastila and therefore I play Revan mainly as male. The Exile is not so clear, I play sometimes male, sometimes female but, as discussed in the KotOR part of our forums a long time ago, the Exile was originally meant to be played as female and lightsided.
Yeah, I play as both depending on the samll changes in the storyline i want

Revan: Female. Exile: Male.
Just seems right that way to me.
i like to play as my gender (female) and i like the romance options for both revan and exile. and the leader of the handmaidens is brianna.
