Bouris Ulgo is a fictional Alderaanian nationalist and usurper of the Alderaanian throne developed by BioWare for the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. In accordance with House Ulgo tradition, Bouris served in the military. He rose to the rank of general. Bouris boarded Moff Ceptor's vessel during the Battle of Rordak. After the assassinations of Queen Silara Panteer and her son Crown Prince Gaul Panteer, Bouris usurped the throne of Alderaan and declared martial law in order to prevent the pro-Sith House Thul from gaining power.
The player, working on the behalf of either the Republic or the Sith Empire, may overthrow Bouris.
In-game codex depiction
The noble House Ulgo has a long history of military excellence. The family values discipline and duty above all else, and Ulgos pride themselves on forsaking the pampered, aristocratic lifestyles the other noble houses have gravitated toward. The Ulgo tradition of requiring every member to serve in the military has produced generations of distinguished officers.
In recent years, the Ulgos became increasingly frustrated with the political stalemate in the Alderaanian parliament. When the queen [Silara Panteer] died and House Thul returned from exile with the support of the [Sith] Empire, General Bouris Ulgo pleaded with the collected nobles to act quickly to push Thul back off the planet. When it became clear the nobles were too fractured to stop what he saw as a second Imperial invasion, Bouris Ulgo declared himself king and declared war on House Thul. Unfortunately, grabbing the crown forced the hand of the other noble houses and they declared war against Ulgo. House Ulgo now finds itself beset on all sides as it struggles to defend the crown and brutally reinstate order on Alderaan – no matter the cost in blood and resources.— "House Ulgo" codex entry, Star Wars: The Old Republic
To Republic players
Has the Republic forgotten? I won the Battle of Rordak by personally boarding Moff Ceptor's battle cruiser!
What did the Panteers ever do except abandon the Republic when the Senate faced a tough decision?
The Panteers' folly has allowed the Thuls to return. If I had not stepped forward, the Empire would have Alderaan!— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
I did what I had to. Do you think that fool Gaul Panteer could have held off the Empire?— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
The Republic's too in love with those twittering Organas. They could never stand against the Empire.— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
I deserve the perks of royalty! I'm the one holding this planet together. Let them pay tribute!— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
And when Alderaan falls to the Empire and our people are sold into slavery? Who'll judge me then?— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
To Sith Empie players
And here we are. It's just as I predicted.
A mere tool of the Sith Empire, just like the beasts in House Thul – sent to wrench the throne of Alderaan away from those who rightfully possess it.— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
Alderaan is everything to me. I've spent my entire life fighting to keep Alderaan safe from the likes of you [the Sith]!— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
I was the only one strong enough to do what was necessary. The people of this world deserve a leader who will defend them!
I will not surrender this throne for you [the Sith], or for anyone else. Only I can keep it safe. Only I can protect Alderaan!— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
I will not be tried when my only crime is defending the people of Alderaan.— Bouris Ulgo, in Star Wars: The Old Republic
