|~ Darth Howl to his apprentice|
Darth Howl was a Dark Lord of the Sith and another member of the Dark Council of the Sith Empire of Darth Vitiate. In 3,643 BBY, Darth Howl and his fellow Councilors granted permission for a lesser Sith Lord known as Darth Chratis, and his apprentice, Eldon Ax, to pursue and eliminate an Imperial fugitive known as Lema Xandret.
<p class="MsoNormal">Chratis ultimately failed in his mission but was survived by his pupil, who returned to Dromund Kaas and reported the death of her Master at her hands to Darth Howl. Pleased with the girl's commitment to the treacherous ways of the Sith, Howl offered to replace the late Chratis as Eldon Ax's Master, an offer which she accepted.
