Physical Description[edit]

Khem Val is a hulking figure, standing about 8 feet tall. He has a muscular, humanoid body with dull brownish-gray skin dotted with what seem to be sores of some manner. He has various cybernetic implants on his back and torso, and he wears only a belt and cloth to cover his upper legs. His face is hideous and fierce, his eyes boil over with anger and spite as his jagged teeth reach out of his mouth. He commands an intimidating presence and his appearance alone strikes fear into the hearts of the enemy.


Centuries ago, Khem Val was the proud servant of Tulak Hord, one of the greatest Dark Lords of the Sith to ever live. His people, the Dashade, thrived. A powerful species of Force-resistant killers, they drew strength from feeding on Jedi and Sith alike. Khem Val was called Shadow Killer and Devourer. As his master conquered, he feasted, and the unusual bond between the Sith Lord and the Shadow Killer grew stronger.

But that was centuries ago. The Dashade have all but disappeared from the galaxy, and the details of Khem Val's legend have faded to formless, creeping fear. Deep in the tomb of Naga Sadow on Korriban, Khem Val sleeps, suspended in a stasis field guarded by crackling electric energy. No one knows how he got there, or how to wake him. Even the greatest Sith Lords do not dare try. For when he wakes, he is sure to be hungry....


Age: Centuries old; precise birthdate unknown

History: Devoured over a thousand Jedi at the battles of Yn and Chabosh.

Psychological Profile: Overly aggressive toward practically everyone, including the Inquisitor character, who he will often threaten in early dialogues. This aggressive attitude is amplified when the victim of attacks is a force user, regardless of their faction. Also seems to be unaware of time's passage.

Combat Role(s): Melee Tank or Melee DPS (Depending on Stance)
