    As the resident PFF Kyle Katarn, I found this an interesting issue as I was recently mistaken for Dash Rendar at the TOY ANXIETY TOYS FOR TOTS event. Please copy and paste the link below! It's a pretty funny read. Feel free to share your comments about the two Lucasarts characters here. I'd be interested to hear what people have to say...

    that was pretty funny. while they come from similar sources and have similar appearances and similar mercenary backgrounds, kyle and dash are a bit different, most notably kyle has the force, and eventually matured and we learned more about his background (father, etc.). dash disappeared after SOTE for the most part, and didn't really change as a character.

    I think this says it best:

    Kyle and Dash: same twinkie, different wrapper,


    :D

    ...and actually Toasty, Rendar didn't die. They brought him back in one of the comic series...ummm... I can't remember what it's called but it was a series entirely about what happened to Guri after the fall of Xizor. Rendar comes back in the end. Needless to say it wasn't a very popular comic. :(

    IMHO, Rendar is a wuss compared to Katarn.

    i dunno... Katarn wasn't much of a pilot... and Rendar, cocky as he is, manages to hold his own in a firefight, without the Force.

    and yes, Dash isn't dead. this is documented in the SOTE game and in the sequel to the SOTE comics: Shadows of the Empire: Evolution, where he cameos at the end.

    The comic was Shadows of the Empire: Evolution. They left the death pretty vague as I remember in the book, I figured for that option.

    As for Rendar being a wuss.... Well Rendar is a smuggler, Katarn is a Special Operations Operative...he has the more "dynamic" job overall. They expand on Rendar more in the SotE Sourcebook for the old d6 RPG.

    EDIT

    Beaten by the Jawa....... :)

    Or another way to look at it. Rendar's job is to avoid excitement as a primary part of business. Katarn's job is to look for it and make even more.

    I would not mind doing the rendar costume actually I think it would be fun to do so i could finally have a new costume instead of my typical sith one.
