I feel a bit bad for Malak in Knights of the Old Republic. I've always believed that it was his friendship with Revan that caused his fall to the dark side.
"As you duel on the Star Forge, Malak is eventually brought to his knees, mortally injured. Amazed that he has been defeated, Malak begins to regret turning to the dark side. Revan tells him that it was the way of the dark side: all things die in the end.
Malak tells Revan that maybe there was more truth in the Jedi Code than he ever believed, and wonders what would have happened if their positions had been reversed; if he had been captured by the Jedi and returned to the light. Revan apologizes to Malak for starting him down the path of the dark side, but reminds Malak that he had chosen to continue it.
Malak dies with sorrow and regret over his deeds, and without hatred or malice towards his one-time closest friend."
I wanted to share this with everyone, although it's not really my speed (but I LOVE the other ending included with this mod). This mod's a little strange. It is only for Female, DS players. Strange because saving Malak would be something that a light sided player would do, but you can't trigger it unless you're dark sided. Anyway, this is part of Kristy Kistic's "2 Altered Endings" mod. You can find it here:
It's neat to see what happens, but I'll admit that I laugh HARD at Malak, and the way he stands all stiff at the celebration at the end. Also, strange, is that since he apparently takes Zalbaar's place at the end, Zalbaar ends up M.I.A. (even though I don't kill him when I go DS). This mod, basically turns a dark sided play thru into a light sided one. ;)
