Why Darth Malak Is WAY More Powerful Than Many People Realize

Why Darth Malak Is WAY More Powerful Than You Realize - Star Wars Explained

Darth Malak is a character from the Star Wars franchise, specifically the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Within the game, he is portrayed as a Sith Lord and the main antagonist. Despite not being as well-known as other Star Wars villains such as Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine, Darth Malak is actually a formidable and powerful character who is often underestimated. One of the key reasons why Darth Malak is so powerful is due to his mastery of the dark side of the force.

He was able to harness the power of the force to enhance his physical abilities, including strength, speed, and agility. He was also skilled in the use of force lightning, a deadly force power that allows the user to generate and…

How many Jedi survived order 66?

How many Jedi survived order 66

Order 66, also known as the Great Jedi Purge, was a key moment in the Star Wars franchise that occurred at the end of the Clone Wars. It was a directive issued by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, to the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic, ordering them to execute their Jedi Generals. This moment marked the end of the Republic and the beginning of the Galactic Empire, as the Jedi were essentially wiped out by the clones they had trusted as allies. But how many Jedi were able to survive this tragic event? According to an article from Collider, there were roughly 200,000 known Jedi at the time of the Clone Wars. This number includes both full-fledged Jedi Knights and Initiates in training. However, it is important to note that this number is likely an underestimation, as the Jedi Order was secretive…

KREIA – THE COMPLETE STORY

Kreia was once a powerful Jedi Master, known for her deep understanding of the Force and her ability to see beyond the superficial nature of the world around her. She was a historian and a mystic, spending long hours in meditation as she sought to unravel the mysteries of the universe. As she grew older, Kreia’s eyesight began to fail, and she became increasingly reliant on the Force to guide her through the world. Despite this limitation, she remained a powerful and respected figure within the Jedi Order, and her insights were highly sought after by her fellow Jedi. However, Kreia’s worldview began to shift as she delved deeper into the nature of the Force. She began to view it not as a benevolent guiding force, but as a corrupting influence that enslaved all who used it. This controversial belief put her at odds with many of her fellow Jedi,…

How Liberty Dies: The Politics of Star Wars

The politics of Star Wars has always been a complex and multi-faceted topic, with numerous factions and power struggles shaping the course of events in the galaxy far, far away. From the tyrannical rule of the Galactic Empire to the heroic resistance of the Rebel Alliance, the Star Wars franchise has explored a wide range of political themes and ideologies.

SWTOR: “All That’s Left” Short Story

It has been a whille, but finally the good guys and girls over at BioWare Austine is releasing new story content for Star Wars the old Republic. Here is the latest short story named “All that’s left”. Enjoy: “Sa’har?” That voice–so familiar, despite the years since she last heard it. It sounded impossibly far away, yet close enough that she swiveled her head in search of its owner. “Sa’har–is that you?” The voice, its edges rippling with echoes, was louder. Closer. She ran toward the sound, but her feet were heavy… like stone. “Sa’har! I always knew you would find me. I’m… so happy to see you.” And there he was. Sa’har reached a trembling hand toward the brother she had not seen since she was taken to be trained by the Jedi. As her fingers inched closer, she could see her brother’s gaunt face was marred by fear, by…

The Philosophy of Kreia: A Critical Examination of Star Wars

If you have been a Star Wars fan for a long time, or if you’d what you call a “hardcore” fan, then you’ve probably at some point discussed the philosophies behind the Stars Wars universe. There is more to it than Light Side vs. Dark Side and lightsaber battles. And who determines what is “good” and what is “bad”? Here’s a great film that breaks down the philosophy of Kreia, a popular Star Wars figure from KOTOR 2. Personally, I loved her and I know a lot of other players did as well. This is long, but well worth the watch. The character Kreia from the game Knights of the Old Republic 2 is arguably one of the greatest female characters in gaming. However, despite her fame, much of her philosophy has been misunderstood due to the puzzling manner in which the game presents her backstory and motives. This video…

SWTOR Lead Writer Charles Boyd explains the KOTFE backstory.

Earlier today, current lead writer of Star Wars: The old Republic, Charles Boyd took on the forums explaining  the backstory of Knights of the Fallen Empire Is it wrong that, revisiting SoR, made me think what the hell went wrong w KotFE? | 06.30.2017, 12:40 PM Quote: Originally Posted by DarthDymond  One of my absolute favorite lines from the vanilla game is when you encounter the Emperor in the Jedi Knight’s story and he gives his big villain speech about out why he wants to be an immortal god: “You discern a fraction of reality. Beyond these stars exist other galaxies, other worlds, other beings. I will experience or ignore them as I wish. I will spend eternity becoming everything: a farmer, an artist, a simple man. When the last living thing in the universe finally dies, I will enjoy peace and wait for the cycle to begin again.” That is a villain I can easily believe was already…

BioWare published a new story blog on the swtor website details Thexan and Arcann. These a the two guys from the Fallen Empire trailer. Check it out below: Brothers Today, I watched my face burn. The skin cracked and curled as fire seared away the moisture. Charred flesh retreated from the heat and shriveled into a huddled black mass. One blue eye, identical to my own, held me in place–made me watch. In an instant, it was the face of a stranger. And we were no longer twins. The memory tugged at my hand, pulled it to my cheek. I was startled by the smoothness that met the pads of my fingertips. My brother’s phantom grip still clutched my arm. I felt the bones beneath his skin reach out, try to escape the pain, and fail. Arcann had writhed for hours before sleep granted him mercy. My own bed remained empty….

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim: Regarding the Canon.

Here are some points that were discussed on the new canon in the Star Wars universe. These points were discussed at the Star Wars Celebration that happened in Anaheim, California. To read the entire post make sure to click through to the original source. One cohesive saga across all media is being told going forward with the new setting. A goal of the Lucasfilm Story Group is to make sure that no real conflicts in storytelling take place in regards to continuity errors. The concept of the LSG was Kathleen Kennedy’s idea, and it helps with the flood of the rapidly-increasing amount of canonical content being made. The old EU (Legends) was completely liquidated to avoid playing favorites; it was described as being a tough call, though completely necessary. Legends are used as source material for filling in some details (such as the physical size and mass of the Death…
