JEDI ACADEMY: CHARACTERS

Friendly Characters

Kyle Katarn

There can't be a Dark Forces/Jedi Knight game without the man who started it all, so Kyle is returning once more. The only difference this time around is you cannot play as Kyle himself this time. Instead, Kyle has become your mentor in the ways of the force at the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. Expect to have Kyle teach you the more "ambitious" uses of the force. Also, players can expect to go on several missions with Kyle in the single player mode.


Luke Skywalker

Luke is back in the Jedi Knight series again after his successful debut in Jedi Outcast. He will retain many of his roles from the previous game as a teacher of the force and companion for missions. But, Luke holds down the fort at the Jedi Academy, so plan on having a few orders issued from him as well.
