Holonet DissectionHere at Darth Hater we are constantly examining any media released for Star Wars: The Old Republic. The Holonet, in particular, quickly became one of our most valued resources in this endeavor. Framed by the ever important fourth pillar, each new release on the official site slowly increases our knowledge of the people and places we will encounter when players finally get their hands on the game. In light of the recent addition of a biographies section, we thought it might be a good idea to look back over the Holonet and find all the people we have been introduced to over the past year and a half.
Note: This article will be updated over time as we include new items to the dissection.
The classes section contains a bevy of information about the gameplay we will encounter in The Old Republic, however the are a few hidden gems about the people and things we will encounter as players. The Aurbesh scattered throughout the different class pages contain names that will almost certainly come to play for anyone choosing the following classes.
Smuggler "Wanted: By Rogan the butcher"
Consular "Intercept and destroy the Javelin Dreadnaught"
Agent "Protecting the Shadow Arsenal"
Sith Inquisitor "Aspirant to the Dark Council"
Other than the Dark Council, these names are fairly unknown to the community. While it is possible to speculate about what they are or how they will effect each class' unique story, at this time there is not enough information to make a strong conclusion.
The timeline represents a large number of the people encountered in the media released by BioWare and LucasArts. As the videos continue to move backwards through time, we are constantly introduced to characters whose actions have shaped the galaxy into what it will be when TOR goes live.
Gnost-Dural is a Historian for the Jedi Order. This Kel Dor is the narrator to each of the timeline videos. Well spoken and to the point, he is a ardent detractor of the Sith and their practices.
Hylo Visz was a Mirialan smuggler that is known for breaking the blockade. A typical Mirialan, Hylo resembles a Human with yellow skin and markings that appear similar to tatoos. She was rumored to be killed shortly after breaking the blockade for betraying a Hutt.
This Mandalore was a gladiator winner that received the title after a series of fixed fights. Upon his rise to power he rallied the Mandalorians to his side and, through the secret influence of the Empire, they proceeded to fight the Jedi. He was eventually slain and succeeded by a new Mandalore.
After slaying the gladiator who united the Mandalorians, a new Mandalore arose. The timeline implies that this second Mandalore will be the current leader of these fierce warriors during The Old Republic. It is not yet known who he is or whether or not he is a puppet for the Empire.
Belth Allusis was the Jedi Master in charge of Bothawui's defense. He died during the battle and is remembered as a hero for inflicting such damage on the Sith in the battle.
Grand Moff Zellos
Zellos was the Grand Moff in charge of the Imperial assault of Bothawui. It is implied that he was still alive after the battle by the Bothawui and could still be a prominent figure in TOR.
