Chronological and political information
Affiliation
"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."
―In-game Codex (Persons of Note)[src]

Corso Riggs is the first companion character for the Smuggler class.[1] He is the second person that a Smuggler meets during their story. [2] Upon first meeting him, Riggs is an employee of Skavak, who gives some helpful pointers to the Smuggler when first venturing out into Ord Mantell. Riggs is later betrayed by Skavak, who also steals the Smuggler's ship.

Background

Always cheerful and eternally optimistic, Corso Riggs would be the last person most people pegged to be a mercenary. Before he became a soldier-for-hire, Corso lived a relatively quiet life on the frontier of Ord Mantell. Raised in a small ranching community far from the more civilized settlements, Corso had to learn from a young age how to rely on himself. Corso's upbringing also led to him developing a knack of getting himself into trouble, often taking dangerous risks for little reason other than for thrills and a story to tell.

When the separatist uprising spread across Ord Mantell, Corso's community was among the first to be affected. His family was killed while fighting back a separatist raiding party, and when the news of this reached him, Corso returned to his homeworld and vowed revenge on the group's leader. He joined up with a local gangster, quickly becoming both a trusted friend and most reliable muscle.

Despite a hard life that would have broken weaker men, Corso still looks at the galaxy with a light-hearted and unshakeable optimism. Always willing to defend the innocent and fight for a good cause, Corso is loyal to a fault and an invaluable ally to anyone who earns his friendship.

Involvement

Riggs can be recruited as a companion around level 7 on the planet Ord Mantell. [1]

Combat

Riggs is a ranged tank that starts off with a handful of abilities that can create and maintain threat. [1] As he gains levels, he acquires more abilities that enable him to be a better tank, such as an AOE fragmentation grenade and an EMP blast. He also gains a damage mode - Sniper Sight - so that he can also function as a ranged damage dealer. At high levels he also gains numerous support and protection abilities to ensure that his allies make it through the fight.

Trivia

  • Based on his facial tattoos, he may have originally been planned as a Kiffar but is human in the released game [3]
