Four more members of the Star Wars: The Old Republic development team chime in on this week's community Q&A feature over on the sci-fi MMORPG's official website. All of the questions are pretty solid, but this one jumped out at me with all the name-dropping:
Char_Ell: What is the backstory of the seven pillars on Corellia commemorating the heroes of The Jedi Civil War in BTC 303 (Revan, Bastila, Carth, Canderous, Juhani, Mission, Zaalbar)? How did the people of Corellia arrive at the decision to build the pillars?
Hall Hood (Lead Writer): Monuments to these great heroes who saved the entire Republic were constructed on multiple Core Worlds after the war's end. The motivations behind these memorials differed from planet to planet. Some were built by politicians cynically displaying their patriotism, while others were created by artists and refugees seeking to honor their saviors. Corellia's pillars, like its many museums, were built as much for tourism as a sincere display of Republic solidarity. Trivia note: a beautiful monument to the heroes stood outside Coruscant's Galactic Senate building for nearly three centuries, but was destroyed by Sith Empire forces during the planet's sacking.
