- "Tharan Cedrax, professor and exo-engineer, at your service. Not that many around here respect my genius, especially those Nikto."
- ―Tharan Cedrax, introducing himself to the Jedi Consular
Dr.Tharan Cedrax was a male Human slicer companion to the Scorekeeper's Herald who was met on Nar Shaddaa. Tharan was a great healer, a ranged attacker, and with the help of his holographic assistant Holiday, he could stun enemies. Tharan was a cunning, clever gambler on Nar Shaddaa, a charming playboy, and a specialized technology slicer. He was particularly fascinated with exotech, a little-explored field of science involving technology from lost or obscure civilizations.
He invited himself and Holiday along on the Consular's journey, believing that he needed a change of pace from Nar Shaddaa and that the Consular could benefit from Cedrax's scientific knowledge. However, despite his friendship with the Jedi, including Master Syo Bakarn of the High Council, Cedrax found Jedi mysticism and overt use of the Force disturbing, perhaps because it could not be analyzed scientifically.
During the course of his travels with the Consular, his hard work paid off, and he was invited to a symposium at the Lumenatus Club, a secret society of the galaxy's greatest scientific geniuses.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Cedrax was a calm, but sarcastic, man who almost always sought rational answers to conflicts. He had a firm belief that knowledge was morally neutral and always desirable to keep, which sometimes put him in conflict with the Consular if a fantastic weapon or forbidden science project had to be destroyed for the greater good. He also disliked overt or unnecessary displays of Force abilities, especially the Jedi mind trick. Cedrax considered himself a pacifist, but the realities of life on Nar Shaddaa meant that he was proficient with a scattergun and a blaster. Much of the time, however, he used his technological wizardry to heal to Consular in battle or deployed Holiday as a distraction.
In addition to his passion for science, Cedrax also enjoyed fine luxuries and the attention of beautiful women. He did not form lasting relationships, as his true emotional attachment was to Holiday, and she was easily spurred to jealousy.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Cedrax is a companion for the Jedi Consular in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Mechanically, he is the healing companion. A female Consular can have a flirtation and one-night stand with Cedrax, but Holiday's jealousy ends the affair.
He is voiced by Jamie Elman.
