If you are not familiar with this guy, I can tell you he is a Republic spy in Republic SIS, and the secret son of Satele Shan, making him a direct descendant of the legendary Jedi Knights Revan and Bastila Shan. He is also the main protagonist in the webcomic series The Lost Suns, and the main character in the novel by Drew Karpyshyn called Annihilation
SWTOR Lead Writer Charles Boyd said that Alexander Freed and Drew Karpyshyn, who both featured Theron Shan in their books, had a large influence on the Theron Shan in SWTOR and set a high standard for this character. Also Alexander Freed seems to be working on a new SWTOR project since he’s gone freelance but we can’t be certain. Will have to keep an eye on his feed to see if he reveals more for you.
So here is how that fun little Twitter chat went down.

@druidsfire @DrewKarpyshyn No involvement from my end, I’m afraid (though I’d been informed it was happening, so I wasn’t shocked!)

@AlexanderMFreed @druidsfire Since I retired from #BioWare they don’t keep me in the loop. I trust the folks there to do a good job, though.

@DrewKarpyshyn and @AlexanderMFreed set a high bar! Hope folks enjoy Theron “in person” as much as in the book and comics @druidsfire
