SWTOR Traitor Among the Chiss Teaser

Bioware has released a teaser of the Traitor Among the Chiss update coming with Game Update 5.6.

A major feature of Game Update 5.6 is Theron Shan’s new haircut.

  • Deshik

    Theron? My name is not Theron anymore, I am Spike Shan now!

  • pokedigijedi

    I don’t like Theron’s new haircut it looks ridiculous

    • awesomea doubleOhseven

      He is a ridiculous man.

    • Laz

      Be fair. His OLD haircut was ridiculous.
      This one is simply ridiculouser.

  • HMH

    I knew the Shans were trailer trash!

  • Darth Ji’inx

    Looks like he finally changed his clothes, too. O.O

  • Deewe

    New haircut = lol. I mean seriously!

  • CrumpetTrumpet

    Dare I hope for Chiss-specific race dialogue?

    Will my agent be able to romance Saganu again?

  • Doriosa

    what the fuck is this shit.

  • ZamGold

  • Mr. Wednesday

    Just when I thought Theron couldn’t look any more like a Jersey Shore doosh…

  • Bwahahahahaha

    wtf is this shit hahahaha

    oh B-Ware; I just can’t with you…

  • AD64

    Am I the only one without a problem?

    • Darth Ji’inx

      I don’t care for Theron’s new hairstyle, but I’m glad he’s finally getting a new look.

  • Darth Ji’inx

    I’m hoping if there’s an option to regain him as a companion later on (story, not reclaim terminal) that hairstyle will only be a customization.

    • Hawke

      Me too. It’s hideous.

  • gua543

    Theron is a serious contender for the title of Edgelord Ultimate with that haircut.

  • Naefas

    Theron will now be made of cyber parts when my sin and warrior get done with forgiving him 😀

    • Zeus Fagervold

      Are your sin and warrior pussies? Theron will be dead is what you should have said.

      • Darth Ji’inx

        Just because a minion betrays you, it doesn’t mean they can’t be useful after their defeat. They just need incentive to obey. 😉

        That’s not to say that my Warrior won’t end him. 🙂

        • Zeus Fagervold

          Those are the words of a weak sith. Traitors hang. Plain and simple. To set an example to your powerbase that treason is a sure way to die. Painfully. Letting a traitor live, you have someone you can never trust again and that person might stab you in the back the first chance he gets. Why on earth would you risk that?
          Malavai Quinn’s death came years too late. But he finally got what he deserved. Theron Shan will aswell.

          • Darth Ji’inx

            Agreed, but a good leader is also a pragmatist, who can use others as tools to reach their personal goals.

            • Zeus Fagervold

              As a sith you can use plenty of people for that purpose, but by not executing a traitor you show weakness. Trying to defend that decision will not waver other siths opinion of you. And if you appear weak to other sith, you will have even more problems.
              People within the Empire have been executed for far less crimes. Traitors get executed. No exceptions. Unless you of course want to “wrongly” roleplay a sith. You gotta take a look at the Sith Empire’s culture to understand how they operate.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                *stern look*
                A Sith is the ultimate individual, a master of his domain. To question a Sith is to court death. Only the foolish challenge a Sith’s judgment. Hold your tongue, worm, lest you be stricken down…

              • Zeus Fagervold

                Yeah that works on citizens. On other Darths or Lords however. There will always be someone more powerful, and making yourself look weak, they will come for you. All this just to spare a traitor?

              • Darth Ji’inx

                If they dare question my strength, then I will strike them down.

              • Zeus Fagervold

                Leaving traitors alive shows the exact opposite of strength. That’s my whole point. And it’s very distant from how the old republic sith culture is. Nobody would risk showing weakness for a lowly traitor. It’s highly illogical.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                I never said a traitor would be spared of consequences, I just said they would be used to the fullest extent of their value. Think what one could learn from a captured (and rightfully enslaved) traitor who was in the enemy’s inner circle. That traitor would take a lot of “persuasion” to break… *devious grin*

        • Darth Twinge

          I’ve had him in a shock collar for a while now. Too bad I couldn’t find the remote XD

      • Naefas

        And you have no dark sense of humor So your sith must be so boring that they make Baras look good

        • Zeus Fagervold

          I got plenty of dark humor, my sith however has much higher ambitions than I do, and humor won’t make him achieve his goals. Setting examples to traitors will however. He probably does not hang around the cantina talking to citizens like he cares what they have to say. I suspect you do that.

          • Naefas

            Your Sith like I said are more boring then Baras and just as quote unquote just as cunning But we all know what happen to him being paranoid. And never said that traitors never die But you or your sith make assumptions with out all the facts So your sith go head and be the ass…umptions and join Baras in that 😀

            • Zeus Fagervold

              And there you go showing that you don’t understand the old republic sith culture. My sith might be “boring” to you, but he is a sith. Your sith on the other hand are influenced too much by how democracy works and your knowledge of how the sith will eventually lose. The sith empire is a militaristic dictatorship, with culture going back millenia. You seem to completely have dismissed that when you made your siths.

              • Naefas

                The Emperor is dead … Main toons are no longer Sith or Jedi but Alliance Once again you assume… read Deceived.. it’s about Darth Malgus And it still a game where people make their toons how they like SWTOR light side or dark as both Sith and Jedi story line go Theron can also be romanced so that plays into how that Sith and or Jedi acts Welcome to the world of rp player plays a toon how they like Agree or not enjoy your day in SWTOR

            • Zeus Fagervold

              Also why on earth would you invest cybernetics on a traitor id you were going to kill him? That is illogical and only shows you had no intention of killing him.

              • Naefas

                It’s a game remember???

      • 平賀才人

        isn’t it more cruel to condeem someone to a life suffering instead of just killing him/her?

  • ZestyM8

    Don’t worry, i’m sure it’s just a phase Theron’s going through…

  • ZestyM8

    That chiss looks exactly the same as Malavai, just blue.
    Smh.

    • Laz

      Saganu? He was already in the Agent class story, so he already looked like that.

      • 平賀才人

        Was he in the Agent Story? I don’t remember him lol

  • DerpDude

    “A major feature of Game Update 5.6 is Theron Shan’s new haircut.”
    ….umm….what ?

    • Paulo Gomes

      Yep. This is what it’s come down to. A haircut is a major feature. Yes folks you read it right: a haircut on a character is a major feature.

      I could elaborate, but I won’t. This statement is enough.

    • Darth Ji’inx

      I think that’s just Dulfy joking. 😉

      • DerpDude

        It crossed my mind…but with EAware it’s hard to know for sure =P

  • Treek bleaches her anus
  • Kaelin

    Who cares about haircut? He changed his clothers, finally

    • AbnerDoon

      That’s what I thought as well. Then I saw the thread currently sitting at 10 pages on the forums of people losing their minds over this. 😀

    • Darth Ji’inx

      That’s what I was saying. 🙂

      Note: I still don’t like his haircut. 😉

    • Darth Twinge

      Does Theron think we won’t recognize him because he shaved off the sides of his hair? lol

      • 平賀才人

        People don’t give a fuck that Clark Kent is Superman just because he decides to wear glasses.

  • fanboy

    5.6 black barber the end

  • Satanic Cheese

    i wonder if theron is playing alot of blink 182 in his spare time in this emo phase hes going thru…..

    Dont waste your time on me your already the voice inside my head….. i miss you

  • Cral

    Why is Theron a traitor? I haven’t been following the story lately

    • Darth Ji’inx

      He didn’t like what the Alliance had become after we defeated Valkorion. He thinks that the Eternal Alliance is perpetuating the endless cycle of war.

      It doesn’t make much sense, especially for Lightside players. :/

      Note: His betrayal is revealed on Umbara.

      • Rompe Himself

        Which matches up with how KOTFE/KOTET didn’t make ANY sense for any Non-Force classes. Plot holes? Only big enough to fly a jumbo through. 😛

        • Ben Gimson

          With any luck, it’ll all be a trick to infiltrate the ‘order’. If it’s not, BW don’t know their own characters.

        • 平賀才人

          KOTFE and KOTET would’ve have more sense if on SOR instead of killing Revan he would have reconsidered joining forces with the republic or empire (depending on your character) so that the whole KOTFE arc would be about Revan actually finishing what he started. That way the non force users would have felt a bit more into the story. And if Revan had to dissapear from the story he could’ve died in the end of the story to supress the emeperor spirit so it would’ve died along with him or something like Brand did with Palpatine’s spirit on the Dark Empire comics.

    • Shawn Hargrave

      b/c they ran out of enemies

    • Dingus

      He’s faking it to infiltrate the new enemy in the dark. Whoops did I spoil the ending?!

    • 平賀才人

      To piss the fangirls…

  • 平賀才人

    Why is Theron’s haircut a “MAJOR” feature?… Will Theron’s new haircut unlock me a new stronghold?, access to some super secret area?, will it get me a new romanceable super sexy togruta/miralan/twilek/zeltron/etc/etc/etc romanceable companion girl?…

    His new style looks like shit IMO lol…

    • faCaldara1 .

      ewwwwwwww dam I hope his hair style can be changed back. I REALLY don’t like the shaved lines in his hair

      • 平賀才人

        It might come up as a comp customization so dont worry

  • brtfgzzzh

    Oh, now they vomited gold decorations all over the chiss’ armor too.

    Annoying.

    I don’t give a F about Theron. He ran away, fine, let’s keep it that way. I’m happy he is no longer around my character.

    • Me

      That chiss looks the same like he did almost 6 Years ago. Nothing like “now they vomited gold decorations”.
      If you played an imperial Agents Story you might remember him

  • Ryuzuki Kurusai

    I don’t know why people are so excited about this i know it’s new content but to be honest if you look at the twitter account it’s only a flashpoint. It’s not that big of a deal. Let me know when they release a new expansion then we can all talk about something.

  • Bastardodcadena

    is like mix Theron hair cut with hair who already exist…..

  • I absolutely *LOVE* that the story will involve the Chiss Ascendancy ^_^. So excited about that. Not really a fan of the entire betrayal plot, but I do hope Theron can be redeemed.

  • Mister-Giggles

    Shan’s cybernetics were probably infected by a Chiss computer virus. Note: I’m not judging Shan… Just… Ewww!

  • Mer Vila

    Theron just even hotter!
