Why then did he come across as another "I'm so cool" character? And what you say is almost the point. He almost loses himself to evil, he almost becomes a Sith minion. Almost. It is never written in a way that I can believe it is a serious possibility. It's like with Cade. Everyone whines how he is a bad boy druggie but nothing serious like a fall to the dark side ever happens. Lets not pretend she is drawn this way for any other reason than fanservice. She often poses in the typical comic book manner so that ass and boobs are shoved in the readers face, often in the same panel. Aside from boobs, she barely has a personality also. Yet Quinlan walks away in the end, doesn't he? He never falls to the dark side, he never becomes a Sith. Because he is "special", you see?
