Why is Dak Benkins so important to KOTOR mod community

2 posts in this topic

Hi all again,
 

18 days ago a lot of you remember when I left a request of Dak Benkins Recruitment mod idea to be taken for considerdation and also for possible future use, well I am to discuss the topic regarding him about why he is so important for KOTOR mod community, 

So here I go, 

I introduced Dak Benkins back in 2016 onto the Star Wars fan fic wikia as what my thaughts where if KOTOR was ever declared Canon, the story focuses on Dak Benkins as a Corporal First Class in the Galactic Republic and would become a Major Character for my universe fandom story, I chose Corellia as I felt it would be a perfect homeworld for my character, and I had to help build him to be more of a acknowledged squad-leader of the Republic, in a position he attained due to his reliable nature, and he was believing to do his duty by the book, and also being a kind and preferred indivisual calling his friends last names and first names sometimes, and something I felt like creating when he looses his best friend Corporal First Class Aidus Denlin from the Endar Spire, and like I probably mentioned in that story which it's unlikely to be in my universe of it Benkins, Gurragann, Lancoln, where the only survivors of 2nd Battalion Alpha to survive though in my universe of it, 

2nd Battlation Alpha 

Was based towards that of it's counterpart from Aliens the Colonial Marines unit 2nd Battalion Bravo Team, in which the characters where all commonly based of, 

Lieutenant Scott Gorman (became a composite for First Lieutenant Lathe Maggnar)

Gunnery Sergeant Al Apone (became a composite for Master Sergeant Rych Halley) 

Corporal Cyntia Dietrich (became a composite for Corpsman Ellen Lo) 

Corporal Colette Ferro (became a close composite for Corporal First Class Aidus Denlin although Aidus isn't a women and the death is not the same as Ferro's in Aliens at all)

Corporal Dwayne Hicks (became a composite for Corporal First Class Dak Benkins) 

Private First Class William Hudson (became a composite for Private J'aahn Lancoln) 

Private First Class Daniel Spunkmeyer (became a close composite for Private Jakk Sambrizi but it's not as same as Spunkmeyer's in Aliens) 

Private First Class Jenette Vasquez (became a composite for Specialist Xenda Billĭ )  

Private Tim Crowe (became the composite for Sergeant Zab-Nagelsa Manadd) 

Private Mark Drake (became the composite for the character Staff Sergeant Makassk Donnovich)

Private Ricco Frost (became the composite for Private Salitt Okee) 

Private Trevor Wierzbowski (became a composite for Private Dineas Kampenberger)

where all composites I based them off though technically I too all the idea upon them for each an everyone of them what happens on the Endar Spuire, the characrter Kampenberger is the only Republic Soldier whom is mentioned as MIA roumer has it he was captured by the Sith being the only prisoner of war taken alive from Endar Spire as I thaught it would gladly fit right on in, each and all the others die with only Benkins and Lancoln surviving and Captain Hugo Gurragann not based on anybody from Aliens survives, 

As I told origins of Dak Benkins I mentioned after the war he still serves for at least many years roumer has it from KOTOR II he still remained for 10 years until retirement of a Major General, I am also currently writing a story about his mission with his two other friends in 3955 BBY after the war went on a secret mission on the Dynamic Class Freighter a sister of Ebon Hawk being the New Controller, with his friends Arod "Arrow" Renning and Vyrr Wezz, and of course Dak has a commando unit he takes care of called Squad Three, and also they're is Rennings' own crew members, before Dak wedding for Ellabelle Blenlin they have to complete a mission on Ord Mantell of a supposed Sith Threat at stake somewhere on the Island of Avilatan, more adventures are set to be told of Dak Benkins in my universe and what he did after KOTOR II for example, perhaps since it's risen with 200 and something views I decided to write up more tails he would of course be close as popular towards Legends Character heros and Canon Character heros like Poe Dameron, or for example but Dak has been marked a penulitmate for Star Wars Old Republic era in my universe, he is the most sucessor to Luke Skywalker, Mara Jade, Jacen Solo, Darth Bane, Asajj Ventress, Anakin Solo, Ben Skywalker, and mostly many more Legends and Canon universe characters in paticular so I think it's fair to say he has become so popular with many views, since more views are set to come soon for them I expect that I can write more paragraph stories about him what he did after KOTOR and a possible likelyhood if they're even was a KOTOR III to know what he did after KOTOR II where he goes, but I have high hopes in mentioning he retires a Major General in future, originally Dak was meant for being a Supportive Character but since he has grown a bit popular I have decided to make many more stories what our Republic Soldier hero does and possibly with his friends the Rodian Arod "Arrow" Renning, the Captain of New Controller and also the Chadra-Fan Vyrr Wezz the co-pilot of New Controller, and Dak's wife Ellabelle Blenlin, and also many more characters the crew of the New Controller, the known crew of New Controller include, a Mandalorian Neo-Crusader War Veteran named Rokis Zuhl of Clan Zuhl and knows very well of Captain Hugo Gurragann during the war Dak Benkins's traitorous Commander, Zuhl is the gunner of the New Controller, we have the Trandoshan named Tshossork Augri a friendly foe and also the gunner of the New Controller, we have the Nikto named Salsose Vec whom is a navigator of New Controller, we have a Kel Dor named Tol Ban whom is a crewman, and the Cerean named Ny-Mudurr-No Mosil whom is also a crewman, we have the Ugnaught mechanic named Montru, and four humans, a Female Crewmember named Yasmyn Starr, and Ships Medical Officer, Lea Stryder, we have a Communications Officer named Silus Riou, and an ex-Jedi Knight named Beltok Koren, we also have a Rodian Female named Hii Zsa whom is romantically involved with Renning and her position is gunner, and a Twi'lek named Fawzijoz whom is a crewmember, in later life it's mentioned Dak becomes a member in that group possibly after retirement, and he would meet his surviving foes from the end of the Jedi Civil War alive, of course the story will be a larger one to tell but if I run out of ideas that's not a problem, 

The main reason I introduced Dak i loved the character and I think it would be a brillent idea for all viewers alike the reason for his mod being introduced and put onto Mod Requests I have plans that someday he will be our new penulitmate mod for all viewers alike I am being respectful to all people on the deadlystream and I do show everyone who loves Star Wars with respect, and also to let everyone know I am okay if it's not made and it's okay and I don't freak out over things if they're not done I just what's called try not to let stuff get the better of me and that's okay, I am okay though and I respect if non of you wish or want to make it, but I would love to see the mod created sometime for KOTOR, and since it was my request for all people I will also be voice actor for Dak in the mod at somestage but many scripts have to be written and also we have numerous of problems how can we get Carth Onasi, and Bastila Shan and also Mission Vao, Jolee Bindo to speak to Dak, plus we don't have actors who sound like Jennifer Hale, or Raphael Sbarge, or Kevin Michael Richardson, and Catherine Taber as well, though to say it would be the most hardest thing to find in all our lives but I wish we had voice actors in KOTOR Mod community who sound similar to them most likely,  You probably will be wondering what does Ellabelle Blenlin sound like in my opinion she would sound similar to voice actor Liliana Mumy if we can find one who sounds just similar to her, 

So with all respect to our main followers of KOTOR mod community I will respect the rules and also I will be paitent and wait and see what happens only time will tell that's all I ever wish to say to everyone and also please do give this topic and me a little bit of respect too thank you.  🙂

I am interested with the character development particularly in designing-texturing [using the available materials 😁] either their faces or clothing. So, I'm definitely having my eyes on this one. :cheers:
