Romanceable by: Jedi Consular female characters
About: Although not a household name, Tharan Cedrax is well known in several circles. In the casinos of Nar Shaddaa, he is cursed as a card-counting mathematical genius. To the eligible women of the galaxy, he is a famous charmer who sees rejection as an intriguing challenge. Among technologists, he earned accolades for solving a technical paradox that revolutionized computer slicing; despite his achievements, however, Tharan isn’t taken seriously by the galaxy’s scientific community, which looks down on him as a playboy rather than a serious researcher. In recent years, Tharan has taken an interest in “exo-technology,” an almost unknown field involving esoteric alien sciences, and gone into business making custom gadgets for wealthy clients. Often accompanied by his lovely holographic companion, Holiday, Tharan has spent his credits freely, enjoying the very best Nar Shaddaa has to offer while staying just shy of its dangers.
How to start minor romance: The female Jedi Consular can romance Tharan during the Jedi Consular story as well as the companion conversations with Tharan – the Jedi Consular can flirt and spend some private time with Tharan Cedrax after he receives a mysterious package, but Tharan will break off the relationship on good terms shortly afterwards. Although the romance is not continued, there are some very touching lines from both Tharan and Holiday in the final companion conversation. These companion conversations are unlocked by completing quests within the Jedi Consular 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.)
How to continue minor non-romance: Players can NOT resume their romance with Tharan Cedrax in the Onslaught expansion, but will meet him during the course of the storyline.
- The player first runs in to Tharan on Corellia. If the player is on a Jedi Consular, they have a very short enthusiastic reunion. If the player is on an Imperial character, they have the option to kill him, or even use him as a hostage.
- After the player completes Onslaught, they can continue their romance with Tharan through an alliance alert. Press N on your keyboard to open the Companions & Contact menu. If you have not done To Find a Findsman, pick that alliance alert up and complete it first, and then the alliance alert Long-Awaited Genius will become available in the Companions & Contact menu as long as you have finished Onslaught. The player will have a reunion on Odessan, and Felix will ask if the player will hire him and welcome him in to the alliance and the player can answer “I’d be glad to have you” or “No. Leave.”
