I wanted to tell a friend about a character in one of the best games I ever played. However, this game is pretty old and I neither remember the name of the game nor of the character. But there are some other things I remember:

  • The character I'm looking for also had memory problems, but it was nothing compared to the main character of the game. I don't want to spoil the story, therefore I don't look for the main character.
  • He really likes to kill people, but he is not a soldier or warrior like the other two characters I'm not looking for. Assassin would be a better description.
  • I'm not looking for the small guy with odd pronunciation, I wonder how anyone can understand what he says.
  • I'm neither looking for the little girl nor for their big hairy friend.
  • I'm also not looking for the female character who managed to get captured twice during the game.
  • There is another female character which was chosen as the 10th worst character on a ranking list. The character I'm looking for is quite the opposite, he even won two awards.
  • Finally, the old hermit character is another one I'm not looking for.

Help me Puzzling.SE. You're my only hope.

    $\begingroup$ So many things remind me of Final Fantasy 7, but there are still some facts, that are contradictory to the characters in the game. $\endgroup$ – Wa Kai Oct 12 '15 at 9:56
  • $\begingroup$ @WaKai No, it's not Final Fantasy. I've added a new hint. $\endgroup$ – Sleafar Oct 12 '15 at 15:02

I was thinking

HK-47 from Star Wars: KOTOR,

•The character I'm looking for also had memory problems, but it was nothing compared to the main character of the game. I don't want to spoil the story, therefore I don't look for the main character.

- The main character, Darth Revan, had amnesia, which was a major part of the story.

•He really likes to kill people, but he is not a soldier or warrior like the other two characters I'm not looking for. Assassin would be a better description.

HK-47 is an assassin droid and really doesn't like people, whom he refers to as "meatbags." The other two soldiers/warriors represent Canderous Ordo and Carth Onasi.

•I'm not looking for the small guy with odd pronunciation, I wonder how anyone can understand what he says.

This is the droid T3-M4, who speaks only Binary.

•I'm neither looking for the little girl nor for their big hairy friend.

Mission Vao the Twi'lek and Zaalbar the Wookiee

•I'm also not looking for the female character who managed to get captured twice during the game.

Bastila Shan, the Jedi who caused the memory loss of Darth Revan

•There is another female character which was chosen as the 10th worst character on a ranking list. The character I'm looking for is quite the opposite, he even won two awards.

Juhani, the Cathar Dark Jedi

•Finally, the old hermit character is another one I'm not looking for.

Jedi Master Jolee Bindo

  • $\begingroup$ Nice, I saw this puzzle late. I loved this game, the Mission/Zaalbar clue gave it away big time. Already with the memory thing I though of Revan, at that point I was like: ^_^ $\endgroup$ – Spacemonkey Oct 14 '15 at 20:07

The answer is

HK-47 from KotOR.

Details:

1. Main character was amnesiac, HK needed to have his memories restored.
2. He is a hunter-killer droid (assassin).
3. Small guy with weird pronunctiation would be Vandar Tokare, a member
of Yoda's species.
4. The little girl would be Mission, and her wookiee friend Zaalbar.
5. Bastila is the character captured twice.
6. Juhani was the reviled character (deservedly so, bleh).
7. The old hermit is Jolee Bindo.
