Companions 101: Kaliyo Djannis, featuring Alex Freed

Every secret agent needs a femme fatale, right? Well, the Imperial Agent gets Kaliyo- an interesting and compelling companion in many ways. For the first installment of their new Companions 101 blog, BioWare gives us more insight into this companion, her background and what she’s all about.

Please Note: This blog contains spoilers for the Imperial Agent class story.

Lead Writer, Alexander Freed (a really awesome guy, by the way), drops in to share some more info about Kaliyo and why she leaves her life on Hutta and joins Imperial intelligence:

“When Kaliyo first joins up with the Imperial Agent, she sees two possibilities. Either the Agent is a mark–someone whose coattails she can ride, someone who’s going to diligently follow orders while Kaliyo plays him (or her) for every credit he’s worth–or the Agent really is as clever, confident and manipulative as he lets on. In the former case, the Agent is worth Kaliyo’s time for the money and adventure alone–at least until she gets bored. In the latter case, Kaliyo sees a challenge, someone who’ll be fun to match and toy with on a level she rarely gets to play at–and if it gets her killed, well, it’ll at least be a rush while it lasts.”

Companions 101 goes on to tell us more about her, her quirks and what she likes and doesn’t like and how she will benefit you in the game. It’s definitely worth the read of you want to learn more about this companion and her story.
