Companion Appearance Customization guide with screenshots of different customizations (Work in Progress).

Prone to cynicism and a stubborn independent streak, Kira Carsen is an improbable recruit to the Jedi Order. This is partially excused by the fact that she began her Padawan training as a young adult; Kira had spent most of her life up to that point as a homeless drifter, scraping out a miserable existence on some of the galaxy’s most unpleasant worlds.

Thanks to her hard-luck upbringing, Kira has considerably more life experience than most Jedi–and a world-weary sophisticate’s attitude to match. In the eyes of her peers, Kira is someone who refuses to take anything seriously or fully commit to the Jedi path.

Those who look more closely, however, might detect the glimmer of an optimist peeking through Kira’s sarcastic facade. Despite her insistence on questioning its teachings, she has a deep appreciation for the comfort and relative safety she obtained by joining the Jedi Order.

    Kira Carson is a jedi consular-shadow. She is a pure dps class. She has not gone through the final trials, and is still considered a padawan. She is enthusiastic and a bit reckless, and favors taking an aggressive approach to problems.

      Depending on what your responses are and how far you progress in the story, Kira might eventually become a fully-fledged Jedi Knight because of her extensive help in the player’s story.

    So, say for underworld goods, explain the like,favorite. Is it like or favorite? When would it be like and when would it be favorite. I’m confused on the difference.

      I find that underworld gives me the like amount and luxury gives me the love amount

      Just read on another companion that player gender plays a role as well. These were all done on a female character.

    I hate Kira. What’s the easiest way to get her to leave / betray you / lower her faction, without going to the Dark Side.

    Don’t like the game all that much, but I really hate my JK now that she’s around.

      Kira is my favorite she keeps every thing right in front like if your not as sharp as her she’ll tell I’m about to beat your record boss to make you think about your skill LVL and how you press those numbers 1-(+ -=)
