Bao-Dur’s never had a problem with words. Words are simple enough, written down in Basic or Iridonian. He’s never been a particularly big reader, at least not of fiction, but he reads his technical manuals just fine. Words aren’t the problem. The problem is using them. Speaking is the problem.

Characters I Identify with 1/7: Bao-Dur
So I’ve been meaning to do something Tumblr-y for awhile now and this is what I came up with. Basically, over the next week I’m going to post 7 characters with whom I feel a lot of empathy and commonality with, explaining briefly why as well as where I know them from. Feel free to pick this up and do it yourself if you like. Think of it as a challenge, I suppose.
The first up is Bao-Dur who, if you notice, is my default avatar online. Bao-Dur is a character from the computer roleplaying game Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords (often abbreviated as either TSL or KotOR II). Specifically, he’s a mechanic and an old comrade of the player character, the Exile, who was a general for the Republic during the Mandalorian Wars, which took place roughly a decade before the game takes place.
As a character, Bao-Dur can be most immediately described as soft-spoken, intelligent, and loyal. Beneath that, though, Bao-Dur, like all of the characters in TSL, is wounded, scarred by his experiences during the Mandalorian Wars and left with a desire to leave the galaxy a better place than he found it as well as a hidden kernel of rage towards those who cause him and the Republic so much pain (the Mandalorians). It’s also widely interpreted by the fanbase that he holds a candle for the female (and canonical) version of the Exile, though he is unavailable as a romance in the game.
While I didn’t identify with Bao-Dur until a few years after I’d played the game (prompted largely by friends who compared me with him as well as an online personality test that pointed me in his direction), I’ve come to accept him as a pretty close analog to myself. Like Bao-Dur, I am very quiet around all but my closest friends, I tend to think of myself as highly intelligent, and I am very loyal to those who I hold dear. I also, like Bao-Dur, have had issues with anger in the past and have a lot of pain I tend to keep to myself.

It is such a quiet thing, to fall. But far more terrible is to admit it. http://facebook.com/mowseler #starwars #starwarscosplay #cosplay #atris #kotor #kotorii #knightsoftheoldrepublic #obsidian #jedi #videogames #mowseler #davidlovephotography
Korriban shall be as it always was: a graveyard for the darkest of the Sith Lords, still whispering within their tombs.
It shall always be a source of evil, spawning threats throughout the millennia.
