Full Circle by DarthFar Full Circle by DarthFar
Now that the competition is over...

This was my submission for the KotOR Fan Media April '06 Duelling Circle Challenge, "Rejection", which came in second place (kudos to Illustar/Kabochan for taking 1st place! :D). I've always liked Jolee Bindo - outwardly cynical and crabby, but inwardly... well, his life story hasn't exactly been a happy one, considering his history with the Jedi Order.

Jolee was like one of my favourite, if not THE favourite, in Kotor

Yeah. I also regretted Mission's because I personally liked her. She grew on me as a character (kind of like Bastila did since I hated her since the moment she opened her mouth but she grew on me as she started thinking for herself a bit and we got to see who Bastila Shan, I didn't romance her though because I've only ever played female. LS and DS but not male. It just never crossed my mind an when it did, I couldn't get into it as much. Kotor 2 of course was different because you get a different party member depending on gender and alignment so I played every possible Exile there is). That's just my personal opinion though

Great stuff! I wish Jolee's story would be adapted into a novel or a comic series :)

It's been awhile since I played the game, but - did you do Jolee's sidequest on Manaan? He has quite a lot of conversation lines that open up only after that. I paraphrased what he said, though, since his version was way longer.

You know out of all the things the Jedi forbided. I think that not being able to fall in Love and take a spouse was the thing that ultimately lead to there downfall. I believe if the Jedi were able to marry and have children, especially with other Jedi. I think alot less would have turned to the dark side (Anakian not counting of course because of the prophecy). Here my reasoning behind this. Take Luke and Mara for example. Because of thier bond in the force that they shared, they were able to develope a system of observance. By being so devotied not only to the Light but each other, one was able to keep the other from going to the dark side. While some people do not support this theory. I personaly believe that if the Jedi of old were alowed to openly love and marry the temptation of the Dark Side and abuse of power would not have been as strong. If they had a life partner and companion to help and support them through the really tough times. This is why Iam so glad Luke did away with that tenet of the Jedi code when he revived the Jedi Order. Well thats all the ranting Iam going to do today later. and great Job on the comic.

That is very true. But I think I heard that the Jedi long before Jolee's time could marry. Not sure.

From what I've read on Wiki and Wookiepedia. Marriage was strictly Forbbiden to Jedi before The Great Purge. But I'll check again.

Poor Jolee. I like him too, I'd really like to see him again, maybe if they ever make a KOTOR 3. I don't think he's dead. The ol' dude's badass as all get out. This is really awesome, a fantastic tribute to a fantastic character! :thumbsup: :D :w00t!: :clap: :clap:

Fave!

I thought of a great one of his stories to make a comic of. When he and his companion at the time, the one with the "great destiny" when he gets sucked down a ventilation shaft, that would be funny to see in a strip

Very nice. I must not have gotten far enough in the game with my conversations with ol' Jolee, but I did figure out that this is probably what happened. He said something about "How do you fight someone you love" and there went the lightbulb in my head. Wonderful drawing; I've never been able to picture Jolee with hair, but I like it!

Thanks! I exhausted all conversation options with all the characters, but Jolee was the one I liked talking to most because he reminded me of my gramps. :)

Yep. He always had something interesting to say. Everybody else was pretty much the same. Bastila was all "Avoid the Dark Side!" Carth was "Must...kill...SAUL!!" And Juhani was "I cannot, will not, fall to the Dark Side! *sob*" :laughing:
