Ponlar is a fictional Onderonian nationalist and orator developed by Obsidian Entertainment for the role-playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. The player has the option of helping him incite a rebellion or to persuade him into claiming down.
There must come a time when the Queen bows to the will of the people. The Republic has brought nothing but war and death! In our fifty years of flying their colors we have had more war than the past millennia.
Back General Vaklu in his effort to make her see reason. We do not need the Republic. They need our resources, our world, our blood!
For all we have given, now we get nothing. The Republic is weak and falling apart. Its Jedi, whose fallen brethren have brought such misery to us, have disbanded. Let's be the first to take our future into our hands.
Are you with me?— Ponlar, in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Close to two thirds of Onderonians want to reclaim our independence. To isolate ourselves from the ravages of the Republic. To relive our golden age when we answered to no Senate.— Ponlar, in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
No, they [the Republic] take[s] from us. They are like mynocks sucking energy and resources from so many worlds. They bleed us for their bureaucracy and their excesses.— Ponlar, in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
I won't remain silence any longer! The Republic has actively attacked us. They attack our space ships unprovoked! What next… an invasion? Perhaps they seek to conquer us. Will you stand idly by? Will you let them bomb our city?!
If Queen Talia is so removed that she won't do what the people so clearly want… then we must show her. With force!
Brothers and sisters, let us rise up now and march to the Palace. Our will cannot be denied!— Ponlar, in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
