So Bioware has given us three excellent trailers in Deceived, Hope and Return, and they've done a lot to introduce us to several of the important figures in TOR - most notably Satele for the Republic and Malgus for the Empire. Malgus in particular has been fleshed out in novels, developer interviews and such, and those that are following the game know he's an unusual Sith. And I like that about him, makes him a better character in my opinion than the other Sith who fight amongst themselves for power and in character I think I want my SW to be drawn to him in the same way. Now comes the 'what if?'
The actual game takes place several years after the trailers. We see that Satele has aged quite a bit and Malgus as well. It almost feels like they're setting him up to go the same way as Vader, the guy gets older, has to rely more on his armor and respiratory systems to keep him alive due to all the injuries he's had over the years. In a moment of weakness, would you kill him? On one hand, it is the way of the Sith - its what he even did when his own master was injured! But on the other hand, he is interesting and I wouldn't want to kill him until I've learned all that I can from him, it wouldn't be mercy that stays my hand but intrigue. I'm just curious, assuming you were given the choice would you Sith out there off Malgus? I think Bioware is really setting him up to be a fan favorite.
