Darth Malgus, born under the name Veradun and later nicknamed the False Emperor, was a male human Sith Master who served the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War, the Cold War and the Second Great Galactic War. He also fronts the Imperial Fleet.


In the modern history of the Sith Empire, Darth Malgus stands out as a curiosity. He was born on Dromund Kaas as Veradun. As a fierce frontline warrior in his early years, Malgus took an alien lover, treating her more as a wife than a slave. She served at his side during his most successful campaigns, including the destruction of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, where he killed Jedi Master Ven Zallow. He employed mercenaries from species long thought untrustworthy and learned dozens of languages.

Most unusually, Darth Malgus walked away from the power games of the Empire after the Treaty of Coruscant. As top-ranking Sith fought to control the armies and resources that traditionally lead to seats on the Dark Council, Darth Malgus led military expeditions into the Unknown Regions, claiming new territories and furthering the influence of the Empire as a whole.

Often a dissenting voice on policy issues, Malgus nevertheless can be counted on to take orders and has no power base to speak of. This combination has kept even those Sith who hate his constant calls for change from moving against him.
