Jedi Knight Edit

I was wondering in which part is she called a Jedi Knight? --Cococrash11 04:47, August 28, 2011 (UTC) does anbody know when she becomes a jedi knight please answer

Gatekeeper Edit

The current image of Bastila as keeper of the Noetikon of Secrets is from beta, and does not accurately represent her appearance in the finished product. 06:13, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Bastila and Nemo Edit

I just discovered today that, if you use the KOTOR savegame editor to have Bastila with you when you meet Nemo outside the Jedi Enclave, it triggers an amusing conversation. Basically, Nemo reveals that Bastila's master used to douse her with a bucket of water when she lost her temper. The question is: does that information count as canon? While you normally can't have Bastila with you when you meet Nemo, that dialogue seems genuine and can be found in the game files AFAIK. Would this count as canon and deserve a mention in Bastila's "early life" section, or is just an easter egg? --LelalMekha (talk) 22:25, April 12, 2013 (UTC)

  • Because it cannot be accessed through normal, canon means, it cannot be considered canon. It does however deserve a place in the BtS section though. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbol(Talk) 03:44, April 13, 2013 (UTC)


So i have done some math and thinking and bastila was in meetra suriks memory of malak tempting the jedi to the dark side. She looked the same age in this memory as in kotor but this was 8 years earlier. she had to be at least 18 in this scene so i thought that might help when trying to figure out her age. Unsigned comment by Nutellageoff‎ (talk • contribs).

Meetra was six years younger than Revan, and Meetra was ten years older than Bastila. Revan was born in 3994 BBY, making him 37/38 during the events of KOTOR, which, in turn, would make Bastila around 22 during the same time frame. If that is the case, she would have been born in 3978 BBY. I remember hearing that she was 22 during the game on what seemed to be an official source, but I could not find it. Until then, it is simply speculation.

Unless if anyone else has seen something similar?

Better Hasbro Pic Edit

I was cruising around the Jedi Archives Visual Guide, thinking about how the Black Series is coming out with Bastila, and I found a better pic of her from the Vintage Collection cardback. Would anyone be mad if I posted it? I've never posted a pic on anything before and wanted to make sure it was alright before I did anything. --Jessanna Stansu, Jedi Knight (talk) 13:50, June 15, 2014 (UTC)

Age Edit

I remember reading somewhere that Bastila's age during the events of KOTOR was 22, which would make sense given that she was a padawan at that time.

Does anyone else remember reading this information on an official source?

On the Star Forge Edit

Why the article assumes she helped the Republic by her Battle Meditation? In Timeline 8: The Jedi Civil War we can see she actually fought Malak alongside Revan. SuperSzym Tablica/User talk Blog Fanons/Fanony 11:47, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

Yes Timeline 8: The Jedi Civil War shows her fighting along side Revan against Malak but the event takes place in the KOTOR game where Revan fight Malak alone. The most reasonable explination for this is that that Timeline entry was being composed over 300 years after the event it refers to and the composer's information is not 100% accurate. JMasterWor (talk) 12:30, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

But we can ask Bastila to help us during the fight with Malak in KoTOR (I haven'e finished the game, so maybe she refuses, if yes, sorry). SuperSzym Tablica/User talk Blog Fanons/Fanony 19:44, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

The game has two endings, one for the light side and one for the dark side, only the light side is considered canon. I have played KOTOR on the Xbox, PC and android app with a light side Revan and always fought Malak alone. JMasterWor (talk) 20:28, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

It doesn't seem that asking for help is the dark side option, but maybe I'm wrong. I'll see in KoTOR, as I'm close to the end.SuperSzym Tablica/User talk Blog Fanons/Fanony 07:09, June 18, 2016 (UTC)
