|Chronological and political information|
Malavai Quinn was a male Human Imperial officer who served as a loyal companion to the Emperor's Wrath during the Cold War and the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the resurgent Sith Empire.
Born around 3677 BBY, Malavai Quinn became an Imperial officer at the time of the galactic Cold War, in the aftermath of the Great Galactic War. Quinn's reputation had been disgraced under questionable circumstances at the Battle of Druckenwell, which he blamed on the incompetence of his commanding officer, Moff Broysc.
Quinn's military disgrace resulted in being transferred to a dead-end assignment on the divided planet Balmorra during the Cold War. There, his true natural talents were discovered by Darth Baras. Baras recruited Quinn into his intelligence network of operatives at many levels.
Some time later, Quinn was introduced to Baras' Sith apprentice, who was on Balmorra searching for information on a Jedi Padawan. With Quinn's help, the apprentice's mission ultimately proved successful, including to having prevented the Jedi Knight Mashallon from leaking information about Baras' network of spies.
Baras chose to reward now-Captain Quinn by allowing him to depart Balmorra to aid in the apprentice's mission. He remained at the Warrior's side, even when Baras attempted to kill his apprentice and the Emperor's Hand recruited the Warrior as the Emperor's Wrath.
When the Wrath went to Corellia to protect Darth Vowrawn, Quinn claimed that Baras had installed martial law on the planet, preventing any authorized ship from landing. He then lured the Wrath to a space station, where he revealed that he was actually working for Baras. Although Quinn admitted it was wrong, he stated Baras was the one who put him in the military and he wouldn't be in that position if it weren't for the Darth. After incapacitating the Wrath's active companion, he unveiled two war droids, programmed with all the data Quinn had gathered on the Warrior to that point. Ultimately Quinn underestimated the Wrath, who decided to keep him alive, where Baras may not have. He then swore to regain his Master's trust.
While on Corellia, Quinn, along the rest of the Warrior's companions, were tasked to safeguard Darth Vowrawn back on the Wrath's ship. When Draahg attempted to assassinate Vowrawn, Vowrawn mentioned that Quinn fought vigilantly and should be praised. The Captain stated that he did this in hopes for the Wrath to forgive his betrayal; the Warrior replied that it is forgotten, much to Quinn's delight.
During his travels with the Warrior, Quinn became aware of Imperial operations suffering because of Broysc and decided to intervene. Eventually, he and the Wrath got into holoconference with Broysc, determining that he's suffering from dementia. Quinn contacted Imperial High Command in hopes they would remove Broysc but none had the courage to stand up to him. Therefore, Quinn forcibly brought Broysc aboard the Wrath's ship. Growing annoyed the Moff's senseless chatter, he finally snapped and, with the Wrath's permission, chose to execute Broysc once and for all. After learning from universal chatter that the Imperialists agreed that they were better off without Broysc, Quinn was pleased with his work, though regretted not acting earlier.
As Quinn aided the Warrior, he performed maintenance on the Sith Lord's ship and eventually upgraded the Fury's hyperdrive. Quinn was later promoted to Captain 2nd Rank, with the Warrior's consent. Finally, Quinn dedicated himself to the Wrath, promising to impart his skills and knowledge to his disciples.
Personality and traitsEdit
Unlike the rest of the Wrath's companions, Malavai Quinn was extremely faithful to the Empire and his superiors and did not tolerate those who were either unloyal or irrational in duty.
Quinn was not too keen when betraying or being betrayed. For instance, he expressed displeasure when he felt forced to betray the Wrath.
Skills and abilitiesEdit
Quinn possesses sublime medical abilities, but is somewhat effective in combat with his blaster pistol and vibroknife. He was also a highly skilled pilot and possessed a keen sense of military strategy.
Behind the scenesEdit
When Quinn betrays the Wrath, the active companion will comment this. Quinn calls Vette an insufferable pain, Quinn takes note of Jaesa Willsaam's power and offers her to join him only to get laughed at, Pierce always had a bad feeling about Quinn and refuses to work with him, Broonmark stays loyal and refuses to betray the Wrath, and Quinn will treat 2V-R8 as nonexistent. After defeating Quinn and his droids, the player can viciously Force Push and Force Choke him for dark alignment points, forgive him for light alignment points, or simply tell him he's not forgiven so easily for no alignment points.
For getting affection points with Malavai, some things he likes are duty, honor, and loyalty to the Empire. When dealing with Darth Baras, he is the opposite of Vette, not liking it when the Warrior is disrespectful to Baras.
Female Sith Warrior can romance Quinn and marry him.
