- "If I trust the wrong guy, maybe I get hurt. But if I'm too scared to help someone who really needs it, who knows how many people will suffer?"
- ―Corso Riggs
Corso Riggs was a cheerful, disarmingly optimistic mercenary soldier. Raised as a rancher's son on the rough frontier of Ord Mantell, Corso developed a mixture of naive innocence and primitive toughness, wrapped with old-fashioned chivalry.
In addition to his gung-ho enjoyment of a good, dirty fight and his encyclopedic knowledge of weapons, Corso remained a ray of sunshine in even the worst circumstances. He had no sense of his own mortality and was absolutely convinced he's going to live forever. Corso also had a soft spot for damsels in distress, even when it's clear they're up to no good.
Personality and traitsEdit
Corso Riggs had a tendency to form attachments to his weaponry, and was particularly angry at Skavak for stealing his best blaster, "Torchy." When a smuggler associate of his assaulted Mannett Point, Riggs wanted to join them and cut off the Separatists' legs with his vibroblade, "Hewie."
Behind the scenesEdit
Riggs can be recruited as a companion around level 7 to assist in the final mission of the Ord Mantell storyline. In the early beta gameplay, it appeared that Corso would be a Kiffar, as he had yellow tattoos over his nose, similar to those of Clan Vos. However, at the game's final release, the tattoos had been removed. Corso Riggs is voiced by Troy Hall.
Corso can be romanced by a female smuggler. If the romance is pursued, then he will propose.
He's rather easy to romance and starts talking about this pretty soon compared to other characters. However it's important to give mostly "good" answers to him during the conversations, as you can easily break this romance very early if you tell him to sleep it off when he's tipsy. So far there is no chance to start a romance after that.
