LET ME TELL YOU WHY I LOVE IDEN VERSIO.
I have trouble sympathizing with Empire-based characters, because it’s an environment literally specifically designed for the worst traits in people to flourish and thrive, where cruelty and apathy are rewarded. The Star Wars Propaganda book showed the level of just how very much that was by design.
So, getting me to be emotionally invested in an Empire character, even one who is at heart a good and loyal person, is a tough sell. If it’s not that they’re an asshole, then it’s that I have a tough time believing that they would believe in the Empire, given what it is.
BUT MAN DO I LOVE IDEN VERSIO SO GODDAMNED MUCH.
I think a lot comes down to the acting of her voice actor, who is doing a fantastic job so far (I’m just starting the Vardos mission) and that I am all for this kind of character. She’s strong, she’s loyal, she’s brilliant, and she’s put her belief in the wrong people. She truly thought that, once the Rebels were crushed, there would be peace. That, if you were loyal to the Empire, you would prosper. So, she can live with Alderaan’s destruction, but then comes Vardos.
A planet that’s their home, a planet that was wholly loyal to the Empire. And suddenly it’s not just a temporary measure, it’s not just a brief moral decay for the greater good, but that this is the foundation of the Empire, she’s realizing. And she’s going to have to struggle through what that means, what her options are, what can be saved and what can’t be saved.
AND ALL OF THAT WITH THE MOST AMAZING “FUCK YOU” FACE I HAVE EVER SEEN ANIMATED IN A VIDEO GAME.
