DarkTaskMaster is a Star Wars villain from the mod NEWBIEMODDER'S Korriban Expansion on the game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords. The Sith Lord Darth Poxus built up his own secret Sith Academy on Korriban (not equated with the old Sith Academy that used to be ran by "that fool" Uthar Wyyn and his former master Jorak Uln) and began to build up his very own Sith Empire he took on Sith Lord Darth Loqi as his second-in-command and most trusted and loyal Sith Apprentice.
Loqi and Poxus began recruiting many members of Poxus' Sith Empire like Sith Sentinels, Sith Troopers, Sith Captains, Sith Templers, Dark Jedi and Sith Lords like Darth Morbidis, Darth Fang and DarkTaskMaster. After the Mandalorian Wars, Lord Poxus found a Jedi who followed Revan to war and helped Revan win the war: Jedi Master Raynor Vala. Poxus corrupted Vala and took him to his academy as another one of his students, promising him revenge upon the Jedi for forbidding them to fight in the Mandalorian Wars, but Poxus lied. Poxus also found one of the surviving Mandalorians named Kazius and took him to the academy as his prisoner.
Poxus then began taking slaves into his Sith Empire to do work for him. His slaves were Jawas (including the droid mining inventor, Teeqi), Biths, Wookiees, Humans and Ithorians. He had them digging for relics at the various Sith tombs and temples scattered across Korriban. Kazius learned about all of this even while in prison. Poxus ordered all of his slaves and a few apprentices to investigate some ancient Sith ruins on Korriban that lay many tombs, including the tombs of Ezer Arden and Thulsa Gaul. Kazius even knew the way to there. The reason why Darth Poxus was doing all this is cause he was consumed with unlocking secrets of the Dark Side of the Force; he believes that through all these lost tools and Sith artifacts, he can achieve a great level of power. With these new powers and the development of his Sith Empire, he will be able to rule the Galaxy.
DarkTaskMaster guarded the entrance to the tomb of the great and powerful Dark Lord Thulsa Gaul. When the player's character attempts to enter the tomb, DarkTaskMaster stops him (or her) and warns the player's character to leave or face his (or her) own destruction. The player's character refuses and a fight ensures ending in DarkTaskMaster's death along with his Sith Assassins and 3 Sith Templars.
