Githany (Sith Master) (temporarily)

"Leave him. He is nothing to us."
Darth Bane

Darovit, also known as Tomcat, was a failed Human Jedi Padawan and failed Sith during the last battles of the New Sith Wars.



"We kill because it's just."

The Jedi scout Torr Snapit discovered Darovit on Somov Rit along with his cousins, Hardin (known as Bug) and Zannah (known as Rain). He was allowed to join in the war between the Army of Light and Brotherhood of Darkness by their cousin and guardian, Root.

Darovit falls to the Dark Side.

On the way to the Army of Light base on Ruusan, the starship flown by Torr Snapit was brought down in the forest. Snapit allowed the children to cross a rope bridge to safety, then sliced it with his lightsaber. After the Sith and Torr had fallen down the canyon, Darovit climbed down to retrieve Torr's lightsaber and found him alive. Although Torr pleaded for him to leave it, Darovit left him dismayed as he took it anyway and rejoined his cousin.

The ragged remnants of the Army of Light and the brutal reality of the war failed to fit in with the youth's expectations of what being a Jedi would be like. He betrayed the Jedi, murdered General Kiel Charny and joined the Sith as a pupil of Dark Lord Githany. At the end of the Seventh Battle of Ruusan, he turned his back on the dark when he proved unable to kill Hardin.

However, no sooner had he made his decision when he became powerless to prevent either his mentor or his cousin from being killed by Lord Kaan's thought bomb. He was one of the few survivors of the thought bomb, although he had no idea how he managed it. In reality, it was because his connection to the Force was very weak, especially after Rain left. It was later revealed that the only reason Darovit ever had any power was because of his Force bond with Rain.

After the thought bomb, he was drawn to the nexus of trapped souls it had created. There he encountered Rain (now using her real name Zannah) and her Master Darth Bane. Believing Bane to be about to kill them both, Darovit drew his lightsaber against him. Zannah drew on the Dark Side, exploding the hand Darovit was holding the lightsaber with, to allow Bane to spare his life - her last act of mercy before becoming a true Sith.

Later life

Darovit with the Bouncers.

Darovit remained on Ruusan, where he was befriended by the Bouncers, who taught him herbal lore which he used to treat resident humans, who dubbed him "the Healing Hermit." After years wandering, he finally built a simple hut in the boreal forests 996 BBY. When Johun Othone was overseeing the creation of the Jedi memorial on Ruusan in 990 BBY, Darovit was enraged and constantly sabotaged the construction. He was later caught by Othone, and the Jedi convinced Darovit to come to Coruscant and let everyone know of the Sith Lords, Bane and Zannah, that he'd seen.

Before he could testify and let his story be known, however, Darovit found Zannah, who was disguised as a Jedi, in the Jedi Archives. Fearing that she'd be discovered, Zannah took Darovit with her aboard the Loranda to Tython. There, Darovit was instructed to hide in the closet inside of Belia Darzu's castle, as the Sith Lords engaged in a duel against the pursuing Jedi.

Following the aftermath of the duel, Darovit was instructed by Zannah to take Belia Darzu's holocron and the five lightsabers from the Jedi with him to the Loranda.


Darovit accompanied Darth Zannah to Ambria, where they confronted Caleb, to heal Darth Bane. When Caleb refused to heal him unless Zannah sent a message to the Jedi, revealing his presence to them, Darovit suggested that Zannah make a deal with him. He thought that Zannah should message the Jedi to let them know of Bane, and that her Master would be arrested, and she could be redeemed. Zannah refused, knowing that Darovit was trying to get her to turn away from the dark side, but Darovit told her it was the only way Caleb would heal Bane, and eventually she agreed.

After Caleb healed Bane, Zannah murdered him and used her sorcery to drive Darovit insane. When the Jedi arrived, Zannah had hidden herself and her Master in Caleb's hut. Meanwhile, Darovit, driven mad by illusions, attacked the Jedi with Valenthyne Farfalla's lightsaber, and was cut down immediately. Since the Jedi believed he was the Sith Lord that Caleb had spoken of, they investigated no further into the matter, and returned to Coruscant with Caleb's remains, never finding Zannah and Bane.

Behind the scenes

Darovit as he appears on the cover of Jedi vs. Sith 5

Both The New Essential Chronology and The Dark Forces Saga mistakenly identify Darovit as Zannah's brother, when, in fact, the original source Jedi vs. Sith establishes them as cousins.

Darovit's name is Croatian, Bulgarian, Bosnian or Serbian word for gifted, talented.

Initially there was some debate as to whether or not Darovit was Force-sensitive, and whether Jedi vs. Sith intended to hint at this or whether it is just the result of over-analytical fans. This debate, however, was ended when Rule of Two specifically identified him as Force-sensitive, albeit only slightly.

Also, In Rule of Two his name was once misspelled Darovti. Also during Zannah's Force Choking of him in Rule of Two it is said that his hands clawing at his throat, seeing as he only had one hand at the time this is a misprint.
