Romance[edit | edit source]

The Captain has the first opportunity to show her interest in Corso at the end of the mission Hitting Where it Hurts; if she lets Syreena live, Corso states that he is glad, that it ended peacefully because he couldn't hurt a woman, when asked why he explains that he has been raised to treat every woman like a lady. Calling Corso's old-fashioned attitude "cute" results in "I like you too, Captain." During several conversations aboard the XS Freighter's as well as during some Smuggler Class Missions many flirt options become available, which provide affection gain as well as advance the relationship. Although he hits on the Captain at first while beeing "tipsy" Corso is a gentleman who likes to take things slowly. When a romance pursuaded, he asks the Captain's permission to court her and also mentions that he had a fiancee back on Ord Mantell.

NOTE: If the captain kills Syreena, Corso still makes the comment that he could never shoot a woman and the flirt conversation continues as noted above.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Corso calls the Smuggler "Captain".
  • He shows his affection for weapons by giving them names e.g. Torchy, Flashy or Sparky.
  • As most Companions Corso has a customizable appearance. (There are 8 different types, you can choose one of the first 3 as a reward from the Deadly Delivery Class Mission. You can buy any of the 8 types by a special vendor in the Cantina on Taris.)

Codex[edit | edit source]

"Corso Riggs is a cheerful, disarmingly optimistic mercenary soldier. Raised as a rancher’s son on the rough frontier of Ord Mantell, Corso developed a mixture of naive innocence and primitive toughness, wrapped with old-fashioned chivalry. In addition to his gung-ho enjoyment of a good, dirty fight and his encyclopedic knowledge of weapons, Corso remains a ray of sunshine in even the worst circumstances. He has no sense of his own mortality and is absolutely convinced he’s going to live forever. Corso also has a soft spot for damsels in distress, even when it’s clear they’re up to no good."
