In terms of narrative complexity, Atton and Kreia are my favorites.

It's so very rare that female characters are given the sort of depth Kreia is. Her relationship with the Exile is so complicated and contradictory, and I love how that is in deep opposition to the all-male Jedi council if your Exile is female. You basically have three white dudes telling your Exile she's broken because of what happened to her, but here comes Kreia, saying that she is reborn, whole, fuck that. That's powerful and lovely.

Atton is an excellent example of particular type of character that I love: the smart-alecky asshole who uses sarcasm and deflection to cover up genuine feeling. The unsavory/traumatic past is optional but usually comes with.

In terms of narrative complexity, I felt like Mandalore/Canderous was much more interesting in KOTOR? I was hoping they would go more into what Revan wanted him to do after they left, and why he felt compelled to obey. And as the only other connection to Revan besides T3, I felt like they could have looped him in better.
