Here’s the character I’ve been playing most, now that I’ve finished out all of Cymae’s non-repeatable, single-player content. Meet her distant cousin, Sith Sorcerer Mellivora Masani.
Upon leaving her previous life as a personal servant to a physician (By Imperial edict, any person found to posess Force sensitivity must be submitted for training as Sith) she called herself Mellivora after the scientific name of a local species of fauna known to be asocial, unpleasant in temperament, and devoid of charisma but preposterously hard to kill.
Melli is a bit of an odd duck. Pursuing insight into preserving, regenerating, and creating life is her all-consuming passion. She’s basically indifferent to the war(except in that war creates a favorable climate for advancing her research goals), the Imperial “cause,” and Sith hierarchies or factional struggles. Had the circumstances of her birth been different, she could’ve been a successful, albeit equally unconventional Jedi.
Her motto of choice is “There is no knowledge that is not power.” Since she values Republic, Jedi, and underworld sources equally to Imperial and Sith ones, this credo tends to make her fellows quite uncomfortable. She thinks of herself as a Force-sensitive scientist, has a soft spot for other knowledge-workers, regardless of affiliation, and will often make unpopular choices to help or protect them.
Two things that reliably cause her to lose her composure and throw down Palpatine-style are slave-trading and the kind of casual, offhand abuse and bullying that are common to the lowest echelons of Sith society. She has reoccuring fantasies of having the archives smuggled out and glassing the Korriban Academy from orbit.
