In response to a query from Majestic_Jazz, Lead Writer Daniel Erickson points out that though Star Wars: The Old Republic has Twi’leks for the Imperial faction, adding the race as a player option for the Sith Inquisitor presents BioWare with two choices: Do the Twi’lek SI’s not wear head gear at all or do their lekku simply disappear underneath the Inquisitor head gear? Here’s what Daniel Erickson says:
We have Twi’leks for the Imperial side. They even get some cool custom options. And we have aliens in the SI class since the story starts you as a slave, one of the first to try your hand at being a Sith. So it’s definitely something we could do. But the SI has a lot of hoods and a lot of awesome full face masks.
How do people feel about your Lekku actually disappearing when you put on that full face mask? Are having Twi’lek SI with all the cool gear options worth assuming you are doing some artful stuffing? Or should we just say you can be a Twi’lek SI but not wear anything that wouldn’t fit on your big crazy head?
The thread is filling up fast with well thought out responses in favor of either option. One poster, Aphrodithe had a particularly good argument, I thought, for the inclusion of Twi’leks for the Sith Inquisitor:
Twi’lek’s are a race that is all about slavery. To have them be SI makes the most sense of any of the races to be that Class.
