Darth Talon was a female Lethan Twi'lek Sith Lady in Darth Krayt's One Sith as of 137 ABY. Talon was styled with black Sith tattoos covering her body, head, and lekku; each having been earned in ritual combat and inscribed by Darth Krayt himself. As a Sith apprentice, Talon was trained by a fellow Twi'lek Sith Lord named Darth Ruyn, whom she later killed on Krayt's command with a swift decapitating strike of her lightsaber, shortly before ascending to the rank of full fledged Sith Lord herself.
Recognizing her unshakable loyalty, Krayt had Talon become one of his two Hands, extensions of his own will. In this capacity, Talon found herself working alongside the other of Krayt's Hands, Darth Nihl. Talon was often tasked with her master's most important missions; including the capture of Cade Skywalker. Indeed, for a short time, Talon acted as the Sith Master of Skywalker, however, he soon renounced the Sith, injuring Talon in the process; though she survived, her position in the eyes of her master was severely undermined.
Darth Talon, the Lethan Twi'lek Sith Lord, was born as a third-generation Sith lord where she was born on the planet of Korriban and raised in the Sith Academy on the planet which also served as the secret headquarters of the One Sith. Under the tutelage of Darth Ruyn, Talon's abilities as a force-sensitive were harnessed and she turned into a powerful Sith assassin. Psychologically, she was molded to be completely susceptible to the tenents of the One Sith. Her ultimate loyalty however, was to the order's founder and leader, Darth Krayt, the Dark Lord of the Sith and the Emperor of the New Galactic Empire.
With her training on the verge of completion, Talon was greatly immersed in the dark side of the force and as one final test, she was ordered by Krayt to slay her master, Ruyn, in cold blood. Obedient to his every will, Darth Talon took up her arms and killed her former master and thus, her final rite of passage was fufilled. As a reward, Darth Krayt had promoted her to the rank of Hand and became one of the emperor's most trusted assassins.
Pursuit of a Princess
As a Hand of Darth Krayt and of the One Sith, her first mission was to locate and capture Princess Marasiah Fel in order to lure out her father Roan Fel, the disposed emperor of the Fel Empire, out from hiding. Talon traveled to the planet Socorro where she discovered Fel hiding in the Imperial Mission. Although the princess had eluded Talon, Elke Vetter, her bodyguard, mentor, and Imperial Knight, had been defeated in combat by Darth Talon herself.
After amputating Vetter's arm and leg, the Twi'lek Sith had tortured her with the force and discovered that Fel had escaped with an Imperial Missionary named Astraal Vao. With no further use for the fallen knight and having the information that she needed, Talon killed Vetter and continued on with her mission. However, just before Talon could catch Fel and Vao, the two of them had escaped from Socorro on the ship, Mynock, piloted by former Jedi Knight-turned bounty hunter, Cade Skywalker.
Confrontation of Vendaxa
Darth Talon continued her persuit of Fel and her companions to the planet of Vendaxa, where they were joined up with two more Jedi, Wolf Sazan and Shado Vao. In order to prevent them from escaping again, Talon sabotaged the Mynock's flight systems and rigged it with explosives. Afterwards, Talon used the dark side to summon a herd of Vanx to her side and they all attacked the group in a frenzy. While Princess Fel and her allies defended themselves against the herd of beasts, Darth Talon sprung up and attacked both Jedi Knights and engaged them in intense lightsaber combat where she skillfully held her ground against the two warriors.
During the ensuing fight, Talon was able to incapacitate Vao using her force push ability and then turned her attention to Sazan, whom she recognized as the Jedi Master who lost his arm when he fought Darth Nihl during the Massacre of Ossus. The Sith Lady then unleashed force lightening on Sazan, but Marasiah Fel had came in and prevented Talon from killing Sazan. The princess, who was still upset over the death of Vetter, had attacked Talon to ensure that no one else would die at her hands and so no one else would have to die for her. Talon was then taken by further surprise when Cade Skywalker force pushed a pile of wreckage at her and the impact had sent the Sith assassin flying into the underbush of the forrest nearby.
However, despite all of her injuries from Skywalker's assault, Darth Talon survives and awaits for reinforcements from her master. Soon after Imperial Knights Antares Draco and Ganner Kreig arrived on Vendaxa unauthorized ro rescue Princess Fel, Talon emerged with a group of Sith and engaged the group of Jedi, Imperial Knights, and Bounty Hunters. Talon duled with Vao during the ensuing skirmish and although Marasiah Fel was sevearly wounded during the battle, her objective ultimately failed as she was prevented from capturing the princess thanks to the intervention of Cade Skywalker once more. As the Mynock had departed from the planet with the injured princess and company, Talon attempted to board the ship but was force pushed off by Draco.
After her failure to capture the princess, Talon had returned to Coruscant to admit defeat and had expected to be executed by her master but, upon mentioning the invovlement of Cade Skywalker, Darth Krayt had decided to spare her life and instead instructed her to track down Skywalker, the supposed last member of the Skywalker family.
Duel in the Temple of the Sith
Shortly after the incident on Vendaxa, Cade Skywalker traveled to Coruscant where he had intended to rescue Jedi Knight Hosk Trey'lis from captivity inside the Temple of the Sith. Although Skywalker had successfully infitrated the temple and resued Trey'lis, the two of them were caught by Darth Talon who ambushed them and cut off their escape route. With their only chance of escape being blocked out by the Sith assassin, the two Jedi Knights had engaged her in combat where Talon had successfully incapacitated Trey'lis byt was unable to overpower Skywalker and his defenses.
Talon was then overpowered by Cade who then beat her down but in secret, Darth Nihl had been watching from a distance and he had interviened in the fight and prevented Skywalker from killing Talon, though she did resent the intervention of her fellow hand. Regardless however, Skywalker was subdued and captured by the One Sith where he was subjected to torture at the hands of Darth Maladi. Meanwhile, Darth Krayt had tasked Talon with an instrumental role in attempting to lure over Cade Skywalker to the dark side.
Training Cade Skywalker
After the duel, Skywalker was brought before a private audience with Darth Krayt and was also accompanied by both Darth Talon and Darth Wyyrlok III. The Dark Lord then revealed his former identity of A'Sharad Hett, a former Jedi General and veteran of the Clone Wars. He then recalled the events that influenced the downfall of the dark side of the force, the betrayal and near-extermination of the Jedi, the rise of the first Galactic Empire, and his self-imposed exile on Tatooine. Krayt's revelation however, had no effect on Skywalker in the least and the former Jedi had proceeded to mock the dark lord. This prompted Talon to attack him out of rage only to have her be force pushed against a wall. Skywalker then used the incident as an oppritunity to show off his unique healung ability, Dark Transfer, the power to reverse the effects of healing and used in on Talon. She was almost killed but Krayt stepped in and stopped Skywalker and demanded that he heal her wounds of which he did and afterwards, Skywalker was assigned to be the apprentice of Darth Talon.
Talon at first was hesitant and she believed that Skywalker had no intention in becoming a Sith Lord, but she complied anyway knowing that it was her master's demand and that Darth Krayt had planned on luring in Skywalker to the dark side of the froce. After Skywalker had become her now acolyte, she began training him in the ways of the One Sith and they would spend time together training. During their time together, Talon recalled Skywalker of the history of the One Sith and spoke of their philosophy and teachings which were inspired from the ancient Sith lord, XoXaan and told Skywalker that his destiny was with that of the Sith. As time went on, the two became closer and closer to the point where they had formed a Force Bond which developed as a result of Skywalker's healing power. They had presumably slept together, but Talon had remained consistant that her apprentice was only feigning interest in the Sith. Krayt however, ignored Talon's suspicions as he believed that Skywalker would succumb to the ways of the dark side and of the Sith regardless of any resistance he may put up.
