Title: Oh, my, Darth Imperius can sing!
Post by: Darth Justicar on April 11, 2016, 09:44:34 PM
Believe it or not, this is the guy that voices the male Sith Inquisitor.  (I confirmed in another video where I heard him both speak and sing, and it's definitely him.)

Of course, I can't imagine the Dark Side Inquisitor doing this in a million years--but the Light Side Inquisitor, Darth Imperius?  Yes, he is indeed disgustingly cute when nobody but Ashara is there to know.  Now we know why Ashara Zavros was singing in her afterglow--it seems our boy Kallig must have serenaded her with an ancient Sith folk song! ;)

I wholeheartedly agree.

This brought a big smile to my face, because, and I don't know why, when I hear this song it makes me laugh.

You can actually hear a bit of that familiar Imperius voice at the very beginning, though the mic and camera quality weren't great.

It totally brings to mind a line you can get Ashara to say depending on how you play the Ashara Zavros romance as a Light Sider: "We can be disgustingly cute and no one will see!"  :D

Sorry, Lord Kallig, my bad. ;)

This is really fun.

It reminds me of when I found out Laura Bailey who did the voice acting for Kira Carsen in SWTOR (Jedi companion to the Jedi Knight Class) is also the voice of Kid Trunks from DBZ.
Needless to say my experience in SWTOR changed quite a bit after that. She also voices a bunch of silly things, like a D&D RP Show.

It's actually pretty fun looking into what work voice actors do.

Yeah, definitely...I was pretty shocked to find out the extent of Mark Hamill's voice acting, for one, and that he specialized in villains!

One thing I like about Euan Morton's delivery is how deadpan and snarky it is.  Even if I misclick, there are times when even if my LS Inquisitor says something nastier than I meant it to, I can imagine him doing so in a sarcastic manner.  

The one time my LS Inquisitor said, "Murder and mayhem await!" happened in front of Darth Zash, and it was a mistake on my part because I read the "Oh, boy!" cue I had to choose from as sarcastic.  But after he said it and surprised me, it was SO easy to imagine that he was knowingly being completely over the top, for no other reason but to mess with Zash and see if she was stupid enough to hear what she WANTED to hear...when in fact young Kallig was just full of sarcasm.  Totally chewing scenery on purpose and knew darned well what he was doing.
