"Prone to cynicism and a stubborn independent streak, Kira Carsen is an improbable recruit to the Jedi Order. This is partially excused by the fact that she began her Padawan training as a young adult; Kira had spent most of her life up to that point as a homeless drifter, scraping out a miserable existence on some of the galaxy’s most unpleasant worlds. Thanks to her hard-luck upbringing, Kira has considerably more life experience than most Jedi–and a world-weary sophisticate’s attitude to match. In the eyes of her peers, Kira is someone who refuses to take anything seriously or fully commit to the Jedi path. Those who look more closely, however, might detect the glimmer of an optimist peeking through Kira’s sarcastic facade. Despite her insistence on questioning its teachings, she has a deep appreciation for the comfort and relative safety she obtained by joining the Jedi Order."
―In-game Codex (Persons of Note)[src]

Kira Carsen is a female human Jedi Knight serving the Jedi Order during the Cold War and the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire.

Known/Fixed Bugs

There was a possible bug that could cause Kira to not be romancable. If after killing her brother and you choose the Dark Side flirt, she will no longer give any dialogue or missions. If you choose not to flirt with her (avoiding DS points), she would later have a conversation that would have a flirt option however; this option does not give any DS or LS points and she accepts your advances. This was fixed on December 27th 2011 with patch 1.0.1,[1] but the Bug fix was not retroactive to people who had already chosen the dark side flirt prior to the patch, however; it shouldn't affect anybody getting to that point post patch. The developers have stated that they are still planning on a fix for people already affected, but it will take somewhat longer with no firm ETA.

As of Patch 1.1 released on 1/18/12, Kira is now fixed to allow any backlogged conversations to take place. These can be done all at once as they are unlocked as each conversation ends and allows you to do the next. Keep in mind you will have to have the required affection points to proceed.[2]

Background

See Kira Carsen's Dark Past

Witty, brash and carrying a world-weary sophistication about her, Kira Carsen is something of an anomaly within the Jedi Order. Already an adult when she was accepted into the Order, Kira had already amassed a lifetime's worth of experiences which painted her view of the galaxy.

Having been abducted at birth, Kira never knew her real parents and spent the better part of her adolescence in a harsh, abusive environment. After enduring years of abuse at the hands of various instructors Kira fled. She spent the next several years as a drifter, hopping from planet to planet, stowing away on countless freighters when she needed to run. Eventually Kira came across a group of refugees and found her way to the slums of Nar Shaddaa, where she and the other refugees quickly became the targets of the local gangs.

After an attack by a vicious gang, Kira left the refugees behind and returned to her life as a drifter. She spent her days living in alley ways, stealing what she needed to survive from day to day. It was this lifestyle that led her to crossing paths with a Jedi Master. It did not take the Jedi long to sense Kira's affinity for the Force, and offered to take her on as an apprentice.

Kira has an undeniable appreciation of the Jedi Order, and though she may often question the teachings of the Jedi, her optimism combined with never-ending desire to prevent the evils like those she experienced make her a loyal ally of the Jedi.
