    MALON

    Title: Emperor // Species: Human // Age: 41 // Height: 1.89 m // Weight: 89.3 kg

    MALON (also known as: Emperor Malon, Darth Malon, Lord Malon) is the second emperor of the Second Sith Empire, as well as the first emperor to have been a member of the Sith Order. Prior to this, he was, at different times, the Moff of Saleucami; the Grand Moff of the Sith Brotherhood; and the second Dark Lord of the Sith under the Imperial banner, having usurped the title from his Master, the former Dark Lord Darth Vanus.



    BIOGRAPHY

    • Despite his prolific career, Malon was from humble beginnings. He began life on Taris as a human child, born into child abuse, named Kelan Nomar. Born the son of a disillusioned Jedi Knight and a drunkard, his first memories were devoid of his mother—as she had perished of an unknown illness during the early years of his life. Instead, many of his earliest memories consist of his father's abuse: mental, physical, and otherwise. Frequently left to fend for himself, Kelan quickly learned the arts of theft and deception, stemming from a need and desire to survive at all costs.

      When he was 17-standard-years-old, however, a ray of sunshine entered his life: Taryn Briggs. Consorting in secret, the two embarked upon a risky relationship that would span two standard years. During this time, Kelan renounced thievery and began to piece his life together despite the constant shadow of his abusive father hanging over his shoulders. However, their dreams of a better life in the Republic was shattered when Kelan's father discovered their relationship. During the ensuing confrontation, Kelan awakened to the Force and—fueled by years of neglect and abuse—strangled his father to death.

      Awash with guilt at what he had done, Kelan decided that he couldn't face Taryn, as he had committed a crime worse than thievery: murder. Stowing onboard a cargo shuttle bound for the far reaches of the Outer Rim, Kelan decided to disappear and never set foot on Taris again. He arrived in Sith space and was discovered by a Muun Sith named Malignus. Having grown up in the shadow of Sith power—as Taris had been destroyed a millennia prior by the Old Sith Empire—Kelan recognized the power the Sith could offer him: the power to remake himself, to forget the disgusting person he was and become a new creature. Ironically, the creature he became was much much worse.

      Claiming the name "Malon," a corruption of the word malice, the young Sith embarked upon several standard standard years of arduous training, forging him into a lethal agent of the dark side of the Force. These formative years were instrumental to his development, as he meticulously sought a means to vanquish all remnants of "Kelan Nomar" from his being. The result, at least in Malignus' mind, was the perfect Sith warrior: almost completely devoid of ambition, yet with a cruelty and bloodlust that matched the most dangerous serial killers, combined with the discretion and intelligence to wield it properly. The newborn Malon was nothing like the murderous Sith warriors who came before him, priding himself on the calm in which he operated.

      Towards the end of his apprenticeship, Malon forged for himself a set of fearsome black armor—modeled after the schematics for an old Sith war droid he had come across in the Sith Order's archives. This armor was designed with a singular purpose: to instill in his allies, foes, and the galaxy as a whole the fear he had lived with constantly throughout his early life. In the end, Malon had turned Kelan Nomar's greatest weakness into his single most powerful weapon. And, when he was done, he betrayed and murdered his Master in the same manner he had his late father, proving to himself once and for all that Kelan Nomar's guilt would no longer rule him.

      He was a new being.
    • Malon quickly made a name for himself among the Sith. He was quietly promoted to Moff, and he took to ruling the planet Saleucami with equal quietness while growing his power in the shadows. As a Moff, he made connections with Darth Cain upon the planet Christophsis—saving the Sith Lord from a Republic ambush, all the while fighting on the front lines of the skirmish. Later, he was among the Sith to attack Coruscant, driving back two Jedi Knights and a Republic pilot, his long-lost former love interest: Taryn Briggs.

      Towards the end of the battle, he was responsible—along with several other Sith—for rescuing Darth Solum, then the Dark Lord of the Sith, from the bowels of the Jedi flagship. Solum named him "Darth" for his part in her rescue and the two began a Master-apprentice partnership. However, Solum had been stripped of the Force by the Jedi, forcing Malon to research a means of saving his new Master.

      In reality, Malon never planned to keep Solum around. As she was the Dark Lord of the Sith, he believed that she could teach him more about the dark side of the Force, and sought to assist her in regaining her power so that he could learn all of her secrets. However, he quickly came to be disgusted with his Master, who relied on him for power and protection in her weakened state. After participating in the burning of Thyferra, Malon accompanied Solum to Voss in order to finally restore her to the Force. The mission was also a test, administered by Malon, to see if Solum had the strength to lead the Sith Order; but, by the mission's end, Malon was left with only further disappointment.

      In the end, he decided that he already knew all that Solum—who renamed herself "Darth Vanus" after their trip to Voss—knew, and he began planning to betray her. While he plotted, the Sith Brotherhood transitioned into the Sith Empire and, shortly thereafter, Darth Cain administered the ritual that completely restored Vanus' Force-ridden body.

      Deciding not to delay further, Malon issued a challenge to his Master, and met her on her own turf of Rhen Var in order to settle their differences. Their duel was short and fierce, but in the end, Malon emerged unharmed and victorious, having claimed the title of Dark Lord of the Sith for himself.
    • The newly christened Dark Lord of the Sith immediately set to work consolidating his power and dealing with his enemies. One of his first acts as reigning Dark Lord was orchestrating the assassination of Darth Ruwn, known to the Empire at large as Henry Earnest. Ruwn had crossed the Dark Lord twice: on Mustafar, when he wrecked then Sith Lord Malon's flagship hanger with a swoop bike, and again when he pledged his support to Darth Vanus during the fatal duel in which Malon was the victor. Malon manipulated both Moff Tel Ahren and Emperor's Hand Argus, both of whom had grudges against the flippant Sith Lord, to move ahead with Ruwn's destruction.

      In the meantime, Malon assumed two apprentices: a raging Cathar named Shere Cann and the son of Darth Cain, Korvo. While the Dark Lord trained Shere as a Sith warrior, he instructed Korvo in the art of war, with his intention being to use both Sith as future tools to consolidate more power over the Empire as a whole.

      Though no longer the Moff, Malon remained the ruler over Saleucami and remodeled his fortress there into a new citadel. His former Master's headquarters on Rhen Var were razed and converted into a private vault of Sith artifacts. It was here that Malon began to complete the work that he had began with Vanus on Voss: the construction of his own holocron. The process would be a lengthy one, and Malon hid his project from even his apprentices, in the hopes of one day being able to preserve his knowledge for future generations of worthy Sith.

      Shortly thereafter, Malon encountered the Emperor and Warlord in remote Sith space, whereupon they discussed the expansion of the Empire. Malon expressed an interest in dark power he sensed in the depths of the Unknown Regions, and began making plans to dispatch probes into this region. It was also here that the three made plans to attack the heart of the Republic, Chandrila—thereby destroying the lifeblood of the Jedi Order.

      Sometime later, this plan was set into motion. After installing Kalen Gent as Grand Moff of the Empire, Malon, Kalen, the Emperor, and several members of the Dark Council launched a surprise attack on Chandrila. During the assault, Malon attacked the heart of the Republic: the Senate Building. There, he dueled none other than the Jedi Grandmaster in an epic confrontation on the very floor of the Senate chambers.

      During the duel, elsewhere on the planet, a Jedi woman struck down Kyuss Thaun, the Emperor, which triggered a cataclysmic shift in the Force. The result was the dark side firmly wreathing Malon in its full power—anointing him as the new Sith emperor. His duel with the Grandmaster proceeded; the two were evenly matched, and the fight only ended when most of the Senate chamber had been destroyed and Sith reinforcements had arrived.

      Returning to his Empire, Malon called a convocation of Imperial leadership on Coruscant—the Warlord, the Moffs, and the remaining Dark Council—to mark his ascension to Emperor.

    ABILITIES

    • [​IMG]

      Despite being a potent Force user, Malon's most deadly skill is his use of the lightsaber:
      Form V, Djem So: Malon specializes in Form V combat: Djem So. Form V is one of the standard lightsaber combat forms, which emphasizes using one's opponent's power against them. As a result, Malon is rarely the aggressor in lightsaber combat, preferring to goad his foes into attacking him instead, and then using the power of their strikes to fuel his counterattack. Malon's tremendous physical strength makes this Form more effective, as opponents find that their attacks are powerfully blocked and parried despite minimal effort on Malon's part. This also means that his counteroffensive is as threatening as his suit of armor is; he prefers a one-handed attack style, and switches to a two-handed grip when preparing to make a finishing blow.
      Jar'Kai: As proven during his death match with Darth Vanus, Malon is particularly masterful with Jar'Kai: the art of using two lightsabers in combat. In that particular match, Malon proved that his skill with the technique was such that he could adjust the form to his needs in mid-combat and use it to overwhelm opponents at the Sith Lord-level. In fact, it was his mastery of the Jar'Kai form that allowed him to vanquish Vanus, utterly defeating her in sword combat.
      Adaptability: Despite his efficiency with Form V and Jar'Kai, the true danger of Malon's lightsaber style is his ability to pick sequences from other lightsaber forms and seamlessly meld them into his fighting style. For instance, despite being a novice at Form IV, he is able to make use of some of its more aggressive sequences to surprise a foe who is used to his slower, more methodical use of Form V, such as he did against the Jedi he faced during the Battle of Coruscant.
    • [​IMG]

      As the former Dark Lord of the Sith and current Sith Emperor, Darth Malon is the single most powerful Sith in the entire Sith Empire and indeed one of the most powerful Force-users in the entire galaxy. His skill with the Force certainly reflects this level of mastery:

      Force Sense: Malon has a keen mastery of the ability to Sense: able to detect when he is being deceived or outright lied to. Like most Forceful beings, he can also accurately detect the presence of others through use of the Force. In recent years, this ability has expanded, giving him incredibly keen foresight and the ability to perceive shatterpoints—an ability that manifested during his fight with Darth Vanus.
      Shatterpoint: The Emperor has demonstrated the ability to perceive Shatterpoints, both in physical objects and in the fabric of time. He first used this ability as an ordinary Sith Lord, during his battle with Darth Vanus, to locate the weaknesses in a series of boulders being thrown at him; he then destroyed them by pouring the Force into the cracks. As Emperor, his skill with this ability improved to the point where he could use it to perceive events before they happened, and to see when an event was tied to critical events in the future.
      Telekinesis: Malon also has a firm grip on the use of Telekinesis. During the Battle of Coruscant, he used the Force to effortlessly rip a live child out of the hand of a skilled Republic pilot, crushing the child's neck brutally and swiftly, and without much difficulty. He is also powerful enough with the ability to loose devastating blasts of power whenever he perceives a weakness in his opponent's form or an opening in their defenses. Due to his tremendous Force stamina, he prefers to interrupt his opponents with Force blasts, as shown during his battle with Darth Vanus—distracting them and breaking their focus, while allowing him to set up for more powerful combos.
      Force Lightning: He is also capable of using Sith lightning, as any other Sith Lord would. The bursts of this lightning are immensely painful, and capable of killing in high does. In its most potent form, he is capable of summoning a storm of lightning, which he can then use to instantly vaporize unprepared foes and severely damage even those who are prepared.
      Force Zone: His true power with the Force, however, comes from his usage of it to enhance his lightsaber combat. His already keen battle instincts are further sharpened by using the dark side of the Force to center and focus himself. Doing so turns him into a juggernaught, giving him the precognitive abilities to fight efficiently with his lightsaber and ruthlessly attack his enemies—striking terror into their hearts seemingly without any fear of his own. While he is in this "zone," he feeds upon his opponent's fear and confusion to bolster his connection (and therefore his strength) with the dark side, turning him into a very refined weapon of the Force itself.
      Dark Voice: Malon also learned to use his "Force Zone" outside of combat. He does so by quieting the "voices" found within the Force, drawing himself to its absolute center—an ability he considers unique to the dark side. From there, he can speak out to any of his servants and call them to him, summoning them from across the galaxy at times. He describes this ability as seeking out the darkness within his servants and using that darkness to compel them to do his bidding.
      Sith Magick: After becoming the Dark Lord, Malon began to intensify his studies of the dark side in his quest to become the symbol of the dark side within the Sith Order. As a result, he has taken to studying Sith magick, and more broad dark side powers, transforming him into a well-rounded and extremely deadly foe in combat. As Emperor, his curiosity has become more ravenous, searching for places and artifacts of dark side power—with a particular focus on the Unknown Regions.
      Tyrant's Whip: A spell taught to Malon by Darth Cain. He creates a whip made of raw dark side power made physical, similar to Cain's black tendril spell. The whip is excruciatingly painful when it makes contact with flesh and will burn through most clothing and light armor, it can also be used to disarm a victim or restrain them, at which point it can be used as a torture weapon. (One (1) post build-up)
      Note: All powers listed here have been invented/developed/used in an RP already, precisely as they've been described. Some powers are canon; others are based on Legends powers; and, yet others (Force Zone and Dark Voice), have been invented by myself for the use of the character.

      The Emperor's other skills include:
      Intelligence: Malon breaks the traditional mold of the Sith warrior in that he is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable. He meticulously studies subjects which catch his interest, to the point where Darth Vanus, his old Master and the former Dark Lord of the Sith, was surprised about how well he could verse himself in a topic (in this instance, it was his ability to research and retain information about a planet's geography, culture, and history in preparation for a mission). He ravenously seeks after knowledge, which makes him a shrewd political and military leader, as well as a dangerous foe to anyone who crosses his path.
      Combat Sense: His intelligence has practical uses. In battle, such as his death match against Darth Vanus, he proved to be able to think his way through an intense fight, playing his strengths against his opponent's weakness and manipulating their own mindset (i.e., anger, overconfidence, fear, etc.) against them for his benefit. He is also capable of analyzing, almost instantaneously, the holes in his opponent's attacks, forms, and defenses.
      Mimicry: He is also intelligent enough to incorporate techniques he finds useful, from his opponent's arsenal, seamlessly into his own—such as his incorporation of tràkata into his fighting style after having seen how effective it was when employed by Darth Cain; or by upgrading his armor to counter anti-Force-sensitive equipment, such as the kind used by Kalen Gent in their spar on Coruscant.
      Pilot: While Malon is by no means a pilot by trade, he is a pilot with slightly above average skill, and frequently elects to pilot his own shuttle rather than rely on a military pilot to escort him from destination to destination. He is also reasonably skilled at piloting a starfighter, having even designed one for his own, personal usage.

    Dun Möch isn't force related, right? It's just a Sith's ability to intimidate/get under a targets skin with taunts and the like, I thought anyway.

    Yeah, it's not a Force ability. It's more like a general ability to intimidate and get under the opponent's skin. I tend to lump it in with Force abilities because the Force can be used as part of a dun möch strategy, but that's the only reason.

    EDIT: Updated his profile to reflect the discussion above, and also to take into account the Force powers mentioned in The Star Wars RP's Guide to the Force.

    After much consideration, I have redesigned the profile, elaborating more on who Kelan Nomar is as a person. These changes should not affect anything I'm involved in, as it is a simile elaboration on what was already there.

    I was also unhappy with the moniker "Wraith." During my first timeline here, the Hutt Wars, I designed a dark sider named "Malon," hence my namesake. But he never really went anywhere, and I was always bothered by that. No more. Now, through Kelan, I shall tell the story of Malon (hopefully one day to be "Darth" Malon) in its entirety. Hope you all enjoy!

    Alright, there:

    UPDATED! For his promotion to Sith Lord as "Darth Malon." I felt like his profile needed to be reformatted anyways. Borrowed @TWD26 's formatting, with some minor tweaks, so all credit goes to him. None of the backstory (or anything else) was changed, just explained in more detail and in an more presentable format (also with flashy lightning :D).

    The old profile is still on my Workshop if anyone ever wishes to verify this.

    The galaxy should tremble in fear. I am "Darth Melons" in name and character now xD

    UPDATED to reflect his new position in the Empire, and also because I was growing tired of the clunky formatting of the last one; this one's much more simplistic, which is how I prefer it for now.

    Holy shit it's the first timeline. All we need now is a 19 year old Grandmaster and we're set.

    EDIT: And yes that was actually a thing. >.<

    I'm sure that can be arranged. There are plenty of 19-year-olds running around the site. Take your pick :P

    @Undine: Weirdly, a character idea I have had bouncing around in my head for about two timelines now is, in fact, Dame Maggie Smith as a Jedi >.>

    Well, either that or Sith Yzma.

    Roz the Hutt, it started as a joke last timeline, but I still really like the idea.

    I also had the idea of making a mando based off rebel wilson, with the personality of Fat Amy. She was also going to be a Jedi. :p

    Sidenote: This site really needs a devil face emoji, like really :p <- isn't enough to express myself.​
