of the Old Republic Official Site has announced another new
character for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Juhani, like
most Cathar who choose to join the Jedi Order, is locked in a never
ending struggle to find a balance between her instincts and her
training. The feline Cathar are know throughout the galaxy for their
courage in battle, their fierce loyalty and their quick tempers;
such intense passions can make it difficult for one of this proud
species to follow the way of the light.
Yet Juhani has given herself fully to the Jedi, and she is
determined to master both her volatile emotions and her ability in
the Force. She strives to be a paragon of the Order; she has sworn
to live her life completely by the Jedi code. Because of this, she
does not easily accept failure in herself or in others.
Still, there are some among the Order who question whether this
Cathar can ever learn to control her burning passions. It remains to
be seen whether Juhani can live up to her own demanding standards,
but even her own Master fears her impossible quest for perfection
will result in frustration and despair... emotions that can lead to
the dark side.
