Romanceable by: All Sith Inquisitors, depending on story choices
About: Once a loyal servant of the Sith Lord Tulak Hord, Khem Val was placed in a stasis chamber in the tomb of Naga Sadow centuries ago by his master for safekeeping. Tulak Hord is long dead, but Khem Val lives on; a terrifying nightmare from the ancient past. Powerful, cunning and ruthless enough to slay even the strongest Force users, Khem Val was trained as an elite assassin. After emerging from his long slumber, the Dashade is the very embodiment of death and destruction; a reminder that there are things even Sith and Jedi must fear. Although once pledged to a life of service, with his original master gone, it is uncertain where Khem Val’s true loyalties now lie. A near-perfect killing machine, he could prove a valuable weapon for anyone willing to take him on… though he is a weapon that can cut both ways.
How to start romance: Players can start a romance with Khem Val on Ossus, after the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion and before the Onslaught expansion, depending on whether or not they preserved Khem Val’s spirit in the original story. The Sith Inquisitor will come across Khem Val hunting on the farms of Ossus, and can continue speaking through an alliance alert, 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 A Long Lost hunger will become available in the Companions & Contact menu as long as you have finished Knights of the Eternal Throne. The player will have a reunion on Odessan, and during the conversation an option “[FLIRT] You’re never alone” will appear. The player must choose the second “[FLIRT] You smell delicious, too.” that comes up, and lastly, when Khem Val asks to be bonded, the player must choose “Yes. I’m in.” instead of “I can’t.” A box will pop up that says “This choice will start your romance with Khem Val. Doing so will end any other romances you may be involved in. Are you sure you want to proceed?” click Continue will lead to Khem Val leaving to prepare the rituals, and the player tries to kiss him, but Khem Val does not want to kiss.
