|“||Rage! Wrath! Vengeance! I've been dormant too long. I need outlets!||„|
|~ Darth Ekkage|
Darth Ekkage was a female human Dark Lord of the Sith and member of the Dark Council in the times of the Great Galactic War. She was the sister of Darth Baras and one of the greatest Sith assassins to ever live. Head of the Sphere of Mysteries, she was also in charge of the Red Legion, an Imperial unit of killers.
During the war, Ekkage and her minions were imprisoned on Belsavis after she was betrayed and handed over to the Jedi by one of her own; a Sith assassin who renounced the dark side and sought refuge among the Jedi. Many believe Darth Ekkage was as powerful a weapon as the Sith have ever had, and that their victory over the Republic would have been completed long ago if Ekkage had not been captured by Jedi Master Nomen Karr, who earned the hatred of her brother, Darth Baras. But there were also many within the Sith who feared her; realizing that they could just as easily be her next target.
Release and Death
Learning about Ekkage's survival, Darth Baras sent Lord Melicoste to free her, knowing that her return would solidify his claim as the Voice of the Emperor, which he succeeded. However, Ekkage sensed the loss of her assassins and killed Melicoste for his incompetence, taking his lightsaber.
Then, a mysterious Sith Lord appeared out of hiding, remarking that she's so like Baras, to betray someone so loyal to them. Ekkage claimed it to be family trait and then asked who the Sith Lord was. Just then, Jedi Master Somminick Timmns, whom Ekkage recognised as "Nomen Karr's sad little whelp", appeared, claiming the Sith Lord was with him. Ekkage accused the unidentified Sith Lord a fool and a traitor for working with a Jedi. As a result, the Sith traitor announced themselves as the Emperor's Wrath, sent by his Hand to kill her and her brother Baras. Lamenting that the Hand had stooped as low to work with the Jedi, Ekkage battled the two. However, despite her immense power, Ekkage was eventually defeated and then killed by the Wrath.
Darth Ekkage was cruel and sadistic, taking great delight in killing her enemies and showing her massive power. Like her brother, Ekkage was quick to eliminate even the most loyal of allies to them if they became incompetent of a threat; unhesitatingly killing Lord Melicoste after his failure to control the operation on Belsavis. She claims it to be natural and a tradition in her family.
