Early life

Granta Omega was born on the moon of Nierport VII where his mother, Tura Omega, worked at a refueling station. As a young man, he left his home to attend the All Sciences Research Academy on Yerphonia sponsored by Senator Sano Sauro. It was probably during this time that he learned of his father and began a strong hatred for the Jedi.

Harassing the Jedi

Kenobi and Skywalker encountering Omega.

A few years following the Invasion of Naboo, Omega hired a number of bounty hunters to capture any Jedi training on Ragoon VI. The Jedi that were there, Obi-Wan Kenobi, his apprentice Anakin Skywalker, and the Jedi pilot Wren Honoran managed to evade the numerous traps set out by the bounty hunters, including a trap that Omega himself set up.

Following this attack, Kenobi and Skywalker did research on Omega and learned of his origins on Nierport Seven. They also learned that he had a knack for collecting Sith artifacts, though he had no Force sensitivity at all. They also discovered that he was extremely wealthy, though they could not determine the source of his wealth.

Omega reappeared to attack Kenobi and Skywalker while on a mission to find a scientist on Haariden. There, Obi-Wan discovered that Omega planned to dominate the galactic bacta market through the mining of titanite on Haariden. Omega later captured Anakin, in an attempt to impress a Sith Lord. Skywalker managed to escape and, along with Kenobi, stopped Omega from gaining any more titanite.

Revelation

In 27 BBY, Omega appeared on the world of Mawan disguised as a crime-lord named Striker. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Yaddle were assigned to the planet to negotiate peace between the warring factions there (not knowing that it was Omega who was the orchestrator of everything going on here). Omega once again captured Skywalker, and this time hoped to kill him as well as all of Mawan with a bioweapon, to further impress the Sith Lord. Though Skywalker escaped and Mawan protected, Omega succeeded in killing Master Yaddle, who had been protecting Anakin at the time. Omega prepared to escape Mawan, and Obi-Wan Kenobi tried to stop him. It was during his escape that Omega revealed to Kenobi that he was the son of Xanatos and grandson of Crion. Kenobi was utterly astonished by this news, but realized that it all made sense. Omega obviously inherited his father's fortune from Offworld Mining Corporation, and his father's hatred of Jedi.

Attacking the Senate

Granta attacks Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

Over the next few months, Omega worked with the scientist Jenna Zan Arbor. Together they planned to use the neuro-drug known as the Zone of Self-Containment to control thousands of innocent people. In these months, Kenobi and Skywalker encountered Zan Arbor, and were led through a string of puzzles on worlds such as Romin and Falleen that led them to finding Omega on Coruscant. Here they discovered that Omega planned to assassinate Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Though the assassination was foiled, and Palpatine was protected by the Jedi Padawan Ferus Olin, a number of innocent lives were taken (including Senatorial Secretary Tyro Caladian, who learned of Palpatine's true identity but was unable to inform anyone before he was killed). After a battle with Obi-Wan on his speeder bike, Omega managed to escape the Jedi yet again.

Omega's last stand

Omega was finally granted an audience with the Sith on Korriban and took Zan Arbor with him. He met with the Sith Lord in a tomb in the Valley of the Dark Lords, and moments later, encountered the Jedi. He shot and killed Darra Thel-Tanis with his KYD-21 blaster pistol when she tried to protect fellow Padawans Ferus Olin and Tru Veld. After that, he fled and was followed by Obi-Wan. Omega manned an E-web against Kenobi. His weapon overheated and exploded. Omega was thrown against a wall. He made another attempt to attack Kenobi, but was too weak, and Obi-Wan was forced to kill Omega with his lightsaber. Omega's last words were "I know who he is. You will wish you did.", referring to Darth Sidious.

Legacy

A few months after the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan revealed to Ferus Olin that Omega had been meeting with Count Dooku, who had been known by that time as Sidious's Sith apprentice, Darth Tyranus.

Talents

Granta Omega possessed highly developed skills of deception; more than once, he escaped detection while right under Jedi's noses. In disguise, Omega made himself a "void." People forgot they'd seen him, or if they did remember him, they often could not quite place the face. No one is exactly sure how Omega pulled this trick off.
