Romanceable by: Smuggler female characters
About: Corso Riggs is a cheerful, disarmingly optimistic mercenary soldier. Raised as a rancher’s son on the rough frontier of Ord Mantell, Corso developed a mixture of naive innocence and primitive toughness, wrapped with old-fashioned chivalry. In addition to his gung-ho enjoyment of a good, dirty fight and his encyclopedic knowledge of weapons, Corso remains a ray of sunshine in even the worst circumstances. He has no sense of his own mortality and is absolutely convinced he’s going to live forever. Corso also has a soft spot for damsels in distress, even when it’s clear they’re up to no good.
How to start romance: The female Smuggler can romance Corso Riggs during the Smuggler story as well as the companion conversations with him. 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 Corso 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 Unhappy Returns 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 Risha and Corso, and the player can invite one or both of them to join the alliance crew. Afterwards, Corso will say he’ll do anything to win the Smuggler’s heart again, and asks to come back to them. The player can reply “I love you, too” to resume the romance or “I’m sorry” to break up. Choosing to resume will have a box pop up that says “This choice will resume your romance with Corso Riggs. Doing so will end any other romances you may be involved in. Are you sure you want to proceed?” and will lead to an enthusiastic kiss. Breaking up with Corso will lead him to be sad but understanding and keep him in the alliance and part of your crew.
