Iridorian? Iridonian? Zabrak?

Recommended Posts

Just to make sure: the iridorian mercenary that appears in Manaan, is he a Zabrak under that armor like Bao-dur?

It's not clear. In the game the character is very obviously called an Iridorian, but he was later retconned as being Iridonian even though his species' background doesn't match the Iridonians at all, Iridonians being a relatively inoffensive race of people with horns and tattoos who sometimes become Jedi and not bloodthirsty savages who always wear spacesuits.

 

My rationalization is Iridoria is a colony of Iridonia, and the Iridorians are a Zabrak subspecies much like the Dathomirians.

I think his appearance is wrong, lol, that's like a swoop racing suit, you see it on the main character if you crash. Other characters throughout the game have appearances that don't quite match with their dialog, that Sith on Korriban comes to mind, he calls you "human" as though he were an alien, but his appearance is human. Maybe they ran out of models and decided to just put him in a swoop racing suit, even though he's a mercenary. About the Zabrak, Zabrak is the name of the species, and Iridonia is a colony of theirs. Bao-dur is a Zabrak from Iridonia. Iridorians? Somebody apparently screwed up with that, might as well mod that character out of the game after the retcon, because now it just messes with Iridonian culture.

Both of these being changed would be a good idea.

It seems to be true. That armor is actually a swoop racing suit. I heard you see it when you crash in Taris. Does someone have a video of that?

If you have the game, that scene is in the bink video 01g.bik, in the movie folder. Otherwise just google kotor swoop race crash, the video is on youtube.
