Akaavi Spar

Romanceable by: Smuggler male characters

About: Akaavi Spar was born into a respected Mandalorian clan and became one of its finest warriors. She killed her first foe–an abusive Abyssin mercenary–at the age of eight using an improvised flamethrower. This victory earned her the nickname “firehand” among her clan and marked the beginning of an impressive career as an Imperial bounty hunter. Akaavi captured and killed all manner of targets in her youth, from career criminals to Jedi. When her entire clan was framed for crimes against the Empire and executed, Akaavi alone survived the brutal purge — but her outlook on the galaxy changed forever. With no connection to her Mandalorian heritage, she became a wandering mercenary loyal to no one.

How to start romance: The male Smuggler can romance Akaavi during the Smuggler story as well as the companion conversations with her. These companion conversations are unlocked by completing quests within the Smuggler storyline, so check your companion on your ship after every planet to see if more companion conversation quests have become available, indicated by a quest marker over your companion’s head. The first companion conversation will take place right after you get them, and the last will take place after Corellia and your final class story chapter. A very important thing to know is that if you start the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion, the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion, or the Jedi Under Siege / Ossus / Onslaught expansion, you will automatically lock yourself out of the original companion storylines and will not be able to complete them later, and it is not guaranteed that your romance will be toggled for future expansions. You also can not do the companion conversations if you have used an Outlander Token or Commander’s Token to create a level 60, 65 or 70 character (using a Master’s Datacron to boost an existing character to level 70 is fine though.)

Romance continuation: Players can resume their romance with Akaavi after completing the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion and the To Find a Findsman Alliance Alert. Press N on your keyboard to open the Companions & Contact menu. If you have not done To Find a Findsman, pick that one up and complete it first, and then the alliance alert The Tatooine Rundown will become available in the Companions & Contact menu as long as you have finished Knights of the Eternal Throne. The player will reunite with both Mako and Akaavi as a team. Akaavi will ask the player if they still love her. The player can reply “I love you, Akaavi” to resume the romance or “I’ve moved on.” to break up. Choosing to resume will have a box pop up that says “This choice will resume your romance with Akaavi Spar. Doing so will end any other romances you may be involved in. Are you sure you want to proceed?” and will lead to the Smuggler saying “ni kar’tayli gar darasuum” in Mandalorian and a kiss. Akaavi will then ask if Mako can also join the crew, but the player can not truly refuse. If the player chooses to break up, Akaavi says she would have waited a life time, but asks to still be a part of the crew along with Mako, and the player can not refuse.

“How do I tell Darman in Mandalorian that I love him?”
“Try…ni kar’tayli gar darasuum. It’s the same word as ‘to know,’ ‘to hold in the heart,’ kar’taylir. But you add darasuum, forever, and it becomes something rather different.“―Etain Tur-Mukan and Bardan Jusik

Romance conflict: If the smuggler attempts to romance Risha and Akaaavi, his companions, eventually both Akaavi and Risha will confront him together and demand he chooses. If the player reaches this conversation, and does not specifically choose Akaavi or Risha, Risha will walk out disgusted and the player will remain with Akaavi. This cutscene can be triggered in two different ways – either spending some private time with Risha or spending private time with Akaavi, and the two cutscenes are different.
