Elara Dorne Romance Guide

Romanceable by: Trooper male characters

About: A highly talented field medic, Elara Dorne was born Imperial and served in the Empire’s military for two years before defecting to the Republic. She has since served with distinction as a search-and-rescue squad leader, earning several commendations for aiding wounded men under direct enemy fire. Her operational record is flawless. What no record can show is that Dorne’s background, combined with her strict adherence to regulations and rigid, uncompromising personality, has made her fairly unpopular with her fellow soldiers. In truth, she’s widely regarded as a cold, asocial killjoy, an unfortunate side effect of her dedication to embodying the laws and ideals of the Republic.

How to start romance: The male Trooper can romance Elara during the Trooper story as well as the companion conversations with her. These companion conversations are unlocked by completing quests within the Trooper 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 Elara Dorne on Iokath, which takes place after the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion.

  • Elara Dorne has very strong feelings about the player’s choices in the expansions. If the player chooses to destroy the spire in Chapter 10 of Knights of the Fallen Empire, or chooses to kill Aric Jorgan in Chapter 13, Elara will break up with the trooper after the Iokath campaign is over, even if they sides with the Republic. If the player does not do these things, Elara will want to resume the romance, and after the Iokath campaign is complete she will explain to the Trooper that she had hundreds of soldiers depending on her. The player has two dialogue options “I understand.” to resume the romance, or “You moved on, and so did I.”
  • After the Onslaught expansion, after the Hearts and Minds short quest, players will have a brief check in with Elara Dorne on Odessan. She will be all business, but the player can have a [Romance] line with her and a kiss.

*** After the Onslaught expansion, the Female Trooper will have a [FLIRT] option available when they meets up with Elara for a short discussion. The flirt option will lead to them having drinks in the cantina together, but not a true romance yet. There is a good chance this will lead to future romance down the road.
