Biology

A Terentatek

Terentatek resembled rancors, except they had a number of spines growing from their backs and a pair of flaps, or tusk-like projections attached to their mouths. They also had massive claws (three to a hand). The tusks and claws of a Terentatek were highly venomous. It was theorized that they were once rancors, subjected to mutations by the Sith. When the dark side was weak in the galaxy, Terentateks could hibernate and remain dormant for many years, only to return when the dark side was strong again.

History

Terentatek originally evolved on Korriban, where the power and presence of the dark side gradually distorted their shapes and corrupted their minds. Some sources, however, say that they were first created on Yavin 4 by Exar Kun, as one of his experiments in 3,997 BBY. It is possible that terentateks are highly altered rancors undergoing many experiments. Regardless, terentatek's hide was immune to effects of the Force. They became the most dangerous of the creatures bred by the Sith. They were so powerful and dangerous to the Jedi, that they were often dubbed Jedi Killers.

During an event known as the Great Hunt, numerous Jedi traveled throughout the galaxy to try to exterminate the terentatek. Jedi were often sent in groups of two or three to battle these beasts, and the Jedi of the group had a strong Force bond between them. This was done so that the group could strengthen itself from the dark influence prevalent in the lairs of the terentatek, and as it had to rely on its weaponry skills alone due to the almost complete Force immunity of the terentatek. None of the hunts were successful, however. Even though the Jedi seemingly exterminated a majority of the terentatek each time, the waxing of the dark side would trigger the terentatek to come out of hibernation and repopulate the galaxy. Such events included the rise to power of Revan, Malak, and Emperor Palpatine.

A terentatek in the caves of Korriban

Terentatek were also found on Tatooine, Kashyyyk, Onderon, Tython, and Yavin 4. During the Jedi Civil War, Revan and his companions found and killed a terentatek in Kashyyyk's Shadowlands while searching for the Star Forge. It had been a ceremonial beast used in an old Wookiee ritual. In one such ritual many years ago, Bacca's Ceremonial Blade had broken from its hilt and become embedded in the creature's flesh when a headstrong Wookiee chieftain had attempted to slay it—the blade was recovered by Revan. Revan also single-handedly fought and killed two terentateks in the tomb of Naga Sadow. There was also a terentatek in the Shyrak Caves on Korriban, which turned out to be near the entrance to the tomb of Ludo Kressh.

Behind the scenes

BioWare used the umber hulk's model from Neverwinter Nights as the basis for the terentatek in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.[1]

A Terentatek was a Non-sentient abomination, found mostly on Korriban. It was 3.2 meters high and it was as large as a young rancor. They were very strong animals, having an in-born resistance to the Force. Most Force powers didn't work on it, only Force Death Field and Force Insanity could work on it.They are nick-named JediKillers because they killed many Jedi. An average Terentatek had killed 250 Jedi. Fortunatly the Terentatek were quite rare and they only woke up from their "couple decade long slumber" when the power of the dark side waxes full. After Revan killed Darth Malak, the Jedi set up The Hunt to kill all of the Terentatek in 3,765 BBY. They, won and the Terentatek became extinct. They could also be found on Tython. Revan had killed at least 4 terentatek in 3,956 BBY: 1 in the Kashyyyk Shadowlands (Ritual Beast), 1 in the Shyrak Caves to help Thalia May, and 2 in Naga Sadow's Tomb during his search for the Star Forge.
