Jedi Exile (Informal Jedi Master)

"You are a wasted pawn of the Republic, young one. You could have been so much more, even with your wide-eyed innocence, your naive love for others."
Kreia, to Mical

Mical, or "the Disciple", was a Human male who served as a diplomat for the Galactic Republic in the aftermath of the Jedi Civil War. A knowledgeable historian, he was one of several tasked with attempting to contact any remaining Jedi and convince them to return to the Republic. The Jedi Exile encountered him during her journey to gather the Lost Jedi, and he joined the crew of the Ebon Hawk, possibly due to the admiration he had had for her since his youth. He became her informal Padawan, resuming the training he had begun in childhood, and becoming a Jedi Consular. Years after his travels with the Exile, he devoted himself to rebuilding the Jedi Order and would eventually sit on the new Jedi High Council as a Jedi Master.

Biography

"I mean… he's alright, I guess. He is like someone who watches too many holovids… or teaches them. He'd get beaten to death on Nar Shaddaa as soon as he landed, though."

Early life

Mical was a Force-sensitive child, possibly from a Mid Rim colony. He was brought to the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine to be trained in the ways of the Jedi. He became somewhat enamored of the Jedi Exile after she taught his class of younglings to hear the Force sing within others. Comparing her with Master Vrook Lamar, Mical felt that while he was knowledgeable, he was not a natural leader or a mentor as was the Exile.

By the time Mical came of age, the Mandalorian Wars were raging. Many Jedi had gone to war against the wishes of the Jedi Council, including Revan, Malak, and the Jedi that Mical had hoped would take him as a Padawan, the Jedi Exile. Few masters remained, and when Mical came of age, there was no one to train him. He was one of many who were denied the path of the Jedi at this time, in part due to the doubts he was having following the exile of his mentor, so he decided to serve the Republic instead.

Reunion with the Exile

"Much has been forgotten in recent wars, and I fear that greater troubles shall stem from that loss of knowledge in the future. The destruction of the Jedi Academy on Ossus near the Cron Drift in the Sith War… the teachings of Master Arca, the adventures of Jolee Bindo on the Rimward Missions. All these things are in danger of being lost forever."
―Mical

In the aftermath of the Jedi Civil War, Mical was one of the few who maintained the distinction between the Jedi and the Sith. With the Jedi gone, he sought to preserve their history by studying their teachings and gathering artifacts. He had heard mention that one of the Jedi had gone to Dantooine, so he went to the ruins of the Jedi Enclave, but found no trace of them. He found the Exile instead, who told him of her search for the remaining Jedi Masters, and welcomed his company when Mical offered to apply his knowledge and skills to her quest, which seemed compatible with his.

Although history was Mical's specialty, he had some medical training as well, and served as a surrogate medic aboard the Ebon Hawk. He also taught the Exile a meditation technique to replenish her personal Force reservoir.

The Disciple.

At first Mical was not open about his past involvement with the Jedi. After the Jedi Exile had gained his trust, he confessed to having met her as a young student at the Jedi Enclave, and told of how his connection to the Force had faded since then. The Exile offered to train him in the ways of the Force, and he gladly accepted the offer, becoming her Padawan at last and taking on the class of Jedi Consular.

As they traveled together, Mical was unable to hide his feelings for the Exile. Though such things were forbidden to Jedi, Mical believed that the Jedi teachings were fundamentally flawed. He believed that the Jedi were too removed from everyday life, and from the very things that made them living, feeling beings. Still, though he never denied his forbidden love for the Exile, it amounted to little more than flattery and innocent flirtation in the end. This placed him at odds with Atton Rand, who also desired the Exile's feelings.

While aboard the Ebon Hawk, Mical maintained clandestine communication with his Republic commanders, telling his true mission to no one—even the Exile herself. When the party learned that Darth Nihilus was on his way to Telos IV, Mical sent a message to his Republic superiors warning them of the imminent threat.

Throughout the journey, Mical pored over information about Revan and the Sith, discerning a pattern and strategy to Revan's attacks during the Jedi Civil War, and coming to the frightening conclusion that Revan's surgical strikes against the Republic were not meant to crush it into submission. Revan's tactics instead seemed more in line with conquering the galaxy to unite it under a single banner, possibly against an unseen threat. Kreia walked in on him just as he had made this analysis and ambushed him, forcing him to forget his discoveries until she felt the time was right for him to remember.

After the Exile met with the council members, she separated herself from her companions. When she told Mical that the council told her she was unknowingly forcing her companions to follow her, Mical comforted her. He told her that the council made that judgment in arrogance because they denied what made them actual feeling beings. He also reassured her that he and all her other companions were following her because they chose to. He followed the Exile to the end of their battle against the Sith. He was later left behind when the Exile started her journey to find Revan.

Future

After her defeat at the hands of the Exile, Kreia offered to share her vision into the future. She predicted that Mical would devote himself to rebuilding the Jedi Order, and would eventually one day sit on the new Jedi Council, though "reluctantly, as all good men do."

Jedi Consular from Champions of the Force.

Behind the scenes

Mical was voiced by Greg Ellis.

The Disciple appears in cutscenes on Dantooine regardless of the player's gender, but he will be only available to join the player's party if the main character is female (male Exile is instead joined by Brianna, the Handmaiden, much earlier in the game). The Jedi Exile has a chance to train Mical, making him a Jedi Consular. (In the Champions of the Force (Star Wars Miniatures) miniature set, the Jedi Consular figure resembles Mical although no specific name is given.)

Throughout the game, he is only referred to as "Disciple"; the name Mical is mentioned only if the Exile is male—during Mical's conversation with Admiral Carth Onasi (or Cede if Revan is set to be dark early in the game; however, the Mical-Cede conversation is bugged, as Cede's hologram does not show and Mical is talking to empty space). This cutscene will not be seen by the female Exile, since Mical has already joined her party, and therefore his name will not be heard by the player.

Alternate dark side ending

Disciple's dark side portrait.

If the Exile follows the path of the dark side (and is female), Mical will follow her and Darth Traya will predict that he will abandon all beliefs of the Jedi and instead devote himself to politics, becoming a wise and steady yet cold Senator of a Mid Rim colony (reminiscent of Darth Sidious). His dark image, as seen to the right, shows his blond hair growing gray, and his eyes are the yellow color of a Sith.

At some point in the original version of the dark side story Mical was supposed to be attacked by Atton Rand, who had been corrupted by the dark side. He was also supposed to guide the Exile to hidden Jedi and Sith holocrons. Like a lot of other content, these ideas never made it into the final game, although they exist in the game files.

Alternate male Exile ending

After meeting the Jedi Exile in the enclave, Mical returned to Khoonda and waited for the next transport off Dantooine. While still on the planet, he contacted Admiral Carth Onasi and reported that he had found the Jedi Exile, whom the Admiral had been trying to track down since he escaped Citadel Station. It is possible that after the Exile left known space, Mical was trained to be a Jedi when the Jedi Order began to rebuild.
