    Default Kyke Katarn in NJO?

    Quick question. Is it correct that Kyle Katarn makes an appearance in a recent NJO book? If so, which one is it? I have read up to Star by Star, so is it in the new ones?

    I have read through Rebel Stand and unless I completely missed him, which I don't think is the case, he is not in any.

    Where did you hear this anyway?

    Hey,

    It mensions in the new essential guide to characters that Kyle Katarn is involved in the war. I belive the comment is something like " Kyle is afraid that the Vong might succeed where Jerec failed." Or something like that. I have the book at home, so I can't say for sure. I hope that helps

    After playing Jedi Knight II: Outcast, all I can say is "watch out" if Kyle is around! I believe we may see Kyle make an appearance along with some other MIA characters like Boba Fett, Lumiya, Hobbie, and the like. We still have 7 more confirmed books and that's a lot of paper left to add these guys in. I hope we see Katarn and I hope he slices and dices the Vong down! Kyle is a cool character, although he doesn't touch Corran and Ganner, but he's still cool and would add another lightsaber-wielding Jedi to the Vong's Most Wanted List!

    Talking

    I believe that Kyle Katarn is mentioned at being at one of the meetings of Jedi Knights on Coruscant, its in one of the duology sets (not Enemy Lines).

    I agree Nova it would be nice to see people that were involved in the games involved in the novels. However, I've never seen it done before, so I doubt it . But its possible .

    Cool

    Though as much as I'd love to see Kyle Katarn in the NJO books, I'd hate to see him ending up as "just another casualty" by the vong... given the body count rate the books go by...

    Though I can imagine Kyle being one of the last handful of standing jedi after the war is done... touching it off with a classic comment of his with Jan Ors standing beside him (so as i write this, the song bittersweet symphony runs through my head )

    Ahhh...it has come to my attention that Kyle katarn is just another weak-sauce Jedi who never reached his full potential.

    EmprorsHand03, could you maybe research that if you have the books? We'd like to know, right down to the page number. Nobody I've talked to can remember that, but we'd like some kind of evidence Kyle is at least available for an appearance in NJO.

    Well, if you had god mode on, it seems like a forgone conclusion. Turn the game on Jedi Master, then spawn Luke and try fighting him.

    Probably true. He spends so much time oscillating between the light side, dark side, and mercenary, he probably can't make up his mind about anything. Even so, I wouldn't be surprised to see Kyle back in the thick of things in NJO (although this will probably never be mentioned in the novels). However, he is probably getting up there in age.

    Well, Dan Kyrinov, after endless turning over page over page for the past two days I have found.......absolutely nothing . I was so sure that I saw the mention of Kyle Katarn somewhere, I guess that I hallucinated it, or saw it in a dream. I did say that I think I saw it somewhere, no certainties. Perhaps, in the future he will just get a mention in the books as being at one of the meetings, who knows, it could happen.

    I actually doubt it vrey much. WE have never had a novel reference to either him or his female side kick in ANY of the main books (to my knowledge)......

    I agree, very doubtful...
