One Sith[1]

"Back! Only death lies this way!"
Kol Skywalker

This Sith, a male Twi'lek, was a member of the One Sith faction around the time of the Sith-Imperial War, a cooperative effort by the One Sith and Roan Fel's Galactic Empire to eliminate the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances. In 130 ABY, Darth Krayt, leader of the One Sith, organized an army of many Sith Lords for an assault on the Ossus Jedi Academy, bent on purging it of Jedi with the assistance of a complement of Imperial troops. During the fighting, the Jedi Grand Master, Kol Skywalker, defended a shuttle carrying escaping younglings in his charge, killing many of the opposing force single-handed, including the Twi'lek.



This Twi'lek male joined the One Sith during or prior to the Sith-Imperial War, a combined effort by the Sith and the Fel Empire to seize dominant governmental and territorial control of the galaxy from the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances.[1] As a result of the conflict, much of the Alliance was assimilated into the Empire and the New Jedi Order was forced into exile on the planet of Ossus in the Outer Rim, refusing to assist a government allied with the Sith.[3] The Twi'lek was chosen to be part of an army of Sith Lords engineered for an assault on the Jedi Temple of Ossus, the last major Jedi stronghold in the galaxy after the New Jedi Temple on the Alliance's capital planet of Coruscant fell to the Imperial insurrection in 130 ABY.[1]

A large force of stormtroopers from the Empire joined Krayt's Sith army on Ossus after the leader of the One Sith, Darth Krayt, convinced their commander to alter their mission from one of diplomacy to one of violence.[3] Krayt's Hand, Darth Nihl[1] was placed in command of the joint operation, which quickly put the Ossus Jedi Temple under siege. The Twi'lek Sith was among those who stormed into the Temple, fighting to eliminate the Jedi. There, the Sith and stormtroopers killed half of the Jedi there, scattering the rest across the galaxy. They also killed a large number of Yuuzhan Vong shapers committed to an experimental Vong terraforming project.[4]

One group that was being forced out during the fighting consisted primarily of younglings, ushered by Grand Master Kol Skywalker, Jedi Master Wolf Sazen, and their Padawans. The duo ordered their students, Shado Vao and Cade Skywalker, to take the younglings to safety aboard a shuttle so they could escape the Temple. After Sazen was wounded and taken aboard, Kol made a last stand to buy time for them to take off. He killed many enemy soldiers and among the dead was this Twi'lek, whose sword arm was severed near the elbow by the Jedi leader. Just after the shuttle took flight, Kol was killed by Nihl and his body rested near this Sith's corpse. The massacre marked the official end of the Sith-Imperial War and the beginning of a third Jedi Purge.[1]

Personality and traits

This Sith, a red-skinned Twi'lek male, was a member of the One Sith Order led by Darth Krayt.[1] He wielded a red lightsaber when he fought Kol Skywalker on Ossus. Neither his skill with a lightsaber nor those with the Force, if any, were proficient enough for him to be able to survive an encounter with the Grand Master of the New Jedi Order,[1] considered by Yuuzhan Vong Master Shaper Nei Rin to be the Jedi Order's greatest warrior.[4] The Twi'lek had Sith tattoos all along his left lekku and wore armor to protect his torso when in battle.[1]

The death of this Sith

Behind the scenes

The Twi'lek Sith appeared in the first issue of the comic book series Star Wars: Legacy. He was killed in the same panel where he was first seen, though his head was later shown beside Kol Skywalker's fallen body.

This Twi'lek appeared with the red skin pigmentation associated with Lethan Twi'leks. However, it is still unconfirmed if he was of this race as Nautolans,[5] Rodians, Humanoids, and other species have also been shown with abnormally red skin. As well, there were two other Twi'lek members of the One Sith, Darth Talon and Darth Ruyn, who had the same coloring.[6] It is unknown if this is alternatively some kind of tattooing, a reaction to the dark side of the Force, or some other option.

This character's death sequence is another sighting of blood from a lightsaber-inflicted wound. When lightsabers cut through flesh, they instantly flash-cauterize the wound, leaving no time for any blood to escape the victim's body.[7] This was first seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope when Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi in hiding following the rise of the first Galactic Empire, cut off the arm of a smuggler named Ponda Baba in Chalmun's Cantina.
