Zenith

'Zenith' is the code name of a Balmorran revolutionary fighter who has made a career out of hurting the Empire. Once a member of a powerful resistance cell broken up by Imperial infiltrators, Zenith has struck out on his own, gathering followers from Balmorra's oppressed population to launch sneak attacks, raids and bombings against the occupying Imperial forces. Years spent in hiding and seeing the plight of Balmorran citizens have left Zenith with a deep-seated paranoia and hatred of the Empire–especially Balmorra's Sith governor, Darth Lachris. Nothing enrages him more than those who collaborate with the oppressors - he has been known to refuse aid to Balmorrans who cooperate with Imperial soldiers. The sacrifices he has endured have also nurtured Zenith's ambitions–when Balmorra is finally free, someone will have to ensure her new government is strong enough to prevent another occupation.

  • Class: Jedi Consular
  • Returns: After Spirit of Vengeance
  • Likes: Hurting Imperials, standing up for the weak, stubbornness, resolve
  • Dislikes: Mercy to the Empire, betrayal, second chances for those who do wrong
  • Weapon: Sniper Rifle and Blaster Rifle

Zenith Customizations

Zenith Recruitment

In the later expansions, players can recruit many companions to join their alliance, including companions from other stories.









Returns: After Spirit of Vengeance

Alliance Alert: Relentless Ambition (short quest, not an alert)

Recruitable By: Jedi Consular only

Requirements: There's no alert, so the requirement is that you need to have caught up to the Relentless Ambition Quest and be on a Jedi Consular. Relentless Ambition takes place after you compete Spirit of Vengeance, then the two small short quests Conflicting Priorities (where you get a hint about Zenith returning), then Relentless Ambitions. There's another short quest immediately after called Whispers in the Force. If you are a Jedi Consular you will be able to invite him to join the Alliance or Flirt with him and have him join the Alliance and join as a companion. Non-Consular Republic characters will still meet with Zenith, but Zenith says he will not work with the Alliance as they are aligned with Imperial. Later, however, players will receive a letter saying Zenith will consider working with them in the future, but will not have him as a companion. Imperial-aligned players don't see him at all as they are working against him.

Gift Preference Change: When Zenith returns to the Jedi Consular, he will favor Underworld Good gifts the most, while before he liked Military Gear best. He will now love Underworld Good gifts the most, and secondary favorite Military Gear and Weapon gifts.


Zenith Romance Guide



Romanceable by: Jedi Consular male characters [not tested, assumed] & Jedi Consular female characters

About: "Zenith" is the code name of a Balmorran revolutionary fighter who has made a career out of hurting the Empire. Once a member of a powerful resistance cell broken up by Imperial infiltrators, Zenith has struck out on his own, gathering followers from Balmorra's oppressed population to launch sneak attacks, raids and bombings against the occupying Imperial forces.

How to start romance: To start Zenith's romance on a Jedi Consular character, you need to play the Relentless Ambition Quest and be on a Jedi Consular. Relentless Ambition takes place after you compete Spirit of Vengeance which is after the Onslaught expansion, then the two small short quests Conflicting Priorities (also related to Zenith), then Relentless Ambitions. If you are a Jedi Consular you will be able to invite him to join the Alliance as a friend or Flirt with him and have him join the Alliance and join as a companion. Non-Consular Republic characters will still meet with Zenith, but Zenith says he will not work with the Alliance as they are aligned with Imperial. Later, however, players will receive a letter saying Zenith will consider working with them in the future, but will not have him as a companion. You'll get two different letters depending on if you had him join the Alliance or not. This is not a full romance start, instead it is just a [FLIRT] "I want you to stay" option, with a true romance possibly later in the story updates. There is no kiss or hug, but a touching discussion about why the Jedi Consular wants Zenith to stay.

Romance continuation: None yet.

Pronunciation: "Zenith" is pronounced Zee-nith, not "Zeh-nith". See video.

Zenith Influence

A companion's strength in battle is not determined by their gear, instead it is boosted by their Influence Level. A companion's Influence Level also affects their crafting and gathering speed for crew skills, and their crafting critical chance. Most companions start at Influence Level 1, and you can raise their influence level by making decisions they approve of in cutscenes, or by giving them gifts they enjoy.

The higher rank the gift is, and whether they like, favorite or love it, will affect how much Influence they gain from a gift. Gifts that Zenith can gain Influence from are listed below along with how to get them.

Boost Zenith to Influence Level 50: You can make your companion incredibly strong by boosting them up to influence level 50. Using a Companion Compendium is the fastest way to get to Influence 50 and levels your companion to influence level 50 immediately, without using gifts. You can either get one in the Strongholds section of the Fleet for 3 Dark Projects plus 4.25 million credits, or buy them from the Cartel Market / GTN.
