I’ve seen a lot of this lately in-game and on various forums and topics about how most feel that being a non force user should not have a place in KotFE, and at first I agreed until I remembered back to Chapter I: The Hunt when you are offered the first real choice in the game to either kneel or deny his chance to give you his power. Well when whoever kills him, that huge amount of energy that swept through and you were knocked out cold, and then thrown into carbonite. Well that amount of energy was him , and some of it had jumped into your body. Hence why he was able to follow you into the dream state, and keep you alive in carbonite for the last 5 years of your life. So regardless if you have ever accepted his help any time in the later chapters he is still very much apart of you, and you are now apart of him due to that energy mass that swept through the throne room. So even if you are not a force user, having him inside you, his power flows through you whether you like it or not. It’s how that part of the story was written, and now comes the time to put my topic into retrospect in some sense. Now this is just my own opinion and theory about this, it can be wrong, it can be right, but again it’s how I am perceiving this whole Force user vs Non Force user theory into mind.
We all know that Knights, Consulars, Warriors and Inquisitors are all users of the force and always have been. They wield more power than most ever will. So for those of us that have force users as our mains, it would make much more sense to us to learn more of the force, not to mention learning how to balance the Light and Dark side of the force like the Zakuul Knights have, and learn how to make that power greater than theirs even. Now many are having a hard time with this because they don’t want to learn a new way to deal with the force, or learn that it can be more balanced when you stop trying to pacify it, or make it your slave. Which it kind of reminds me of the Sixth Jedi Code from Ziost. In which they added the 6th line so here is how their code now looks at the end of Ziost.
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.
There is no contemplation, there is only duty.
Even though sometimes the “There is no chaos, there is harmony.” line is removed, it still brings back to Jedi’s are trying to pacify this code, and then we have the Sith Code.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.
From the Sith Code we see them trying to enslave the same code under their terms. So this brings me back to the Knights of Zakuul and their code should they ever have one. I believe it be something a long the lines of the Grey Jedi code.
Flowing through all, there is balance
There is no peace without a passion to create
There is no passion without peace to guide
Knowledge stagnates without the strength to act
Power blinds without the serenity to see
There is freedom in life
There is purpose in death
The Force is all things and I am the Force
So I believe the Knights and Scions of Zakuul live by this code as well all the others, and we as force users must adapt it, and become something more than just the Light or Dark Side of the force. According to some that are complaining about how they only want DS choices, well that again is your opinion, and your option to play it that way. I myself have been playing all sides. Not just LS or DS, but also Neutral parts as well. It is how I am enjoying the entire game play in entirely. I want to feel everything my characters feel, and make the choices that I believe are right for them and not someone else, because they believe this is how it should have been played. Now onto Non force users.
Non Force Users
Should we even care about their opinions in this at all.Yes of course, because if it wasn’t for the Dutiful Soldier, The charming smuggler, the reckless bounty hunter, or the shadow of Imperial Agents , much of the galaxy would be dull and boring without them. So while many are saying that “we are being forced into becoming force users.” I want you to think back to Chapter I:The Hunt again, whether you kneeled and accepted his gift, or you killed him, either way his power is in you regardless, it’s how you were able to survive those 5 long years in carbonite as well. So having some of his power inside you regardless of your choice, you in a small term have become now force sensitive and you can see some things about the force, and other things that you can not understand, the Jedi, sith, and grey Jedi codes mean jack squat to you as a truly non force user. But now is the time to open up your mind and think of the possibilities here. Not because you were forced into it, or you chose to use it, but because now who is to say that you were not force sensitive all this time, and just chose to ignore it and pick a different career path as an Agent, Smuggler, Soldier, Bounty Hunter. Maybe you have been force sensitive all this time and just did not realize it, because you chose not to believe in the will of the force. But now it brings it back to should a person or character in this matter lose their identity in this new era, well no of course not, but this is a reminder now as the chapters are showing more and more details about us. We no longer have a need for our old life pre-eternal empire era, we need to become something more, something greater, we have a new foe to defeat, and a new galaxy to reshape into any image we want. We have far more people now depending on us then just say the Sith Empire or Galatic Republic. We have a vast of core worlds, along with outer rims, and deep space now that are depending on us to stop this new threat, and yes Arcann and his sister are very much a huge threat as they are nothing more in my eyes then displeased children who never knew what it was to have their ass spanked. There I said it, now you can all laugh at that last part, or this whole post for that matter, but just think back for a moment, the choices we are making are the ones that do matter even more and more now, it is truly no longer about being Dark or Light, but becoming something better in the galaxy itself. On that note , I found some images online that I am going to post at the bottom, they are of the codes that we all lived under in the Star Wars galaxy for so long, and as they say, hard habits are hard to break.
