Darker colours, and fully black helmet. Additional armour on the right shoulder similar to this. Only longer and three-quarters-way until the opposing shoulder, with the extended portion flowing down along the arm and back in cape-like fashion to not impede movement. Instead to provide additional protection exclusively. Shoulder has an information transceiver.
How long do you usually write? Several paragraphs Do you enjoy writing collaborative posts for things like conversations, combat, etc.? I find it far easier to do it in a collaborative form, and I do enjoy it. Is grammar and depth of writing important to you? Yes, but occasional and minor mistakes are permissible (I do them too). Are there any writing subjects you particularly enjoy exploring? I have no real preference, though I find combat to be something I am neither good at nor experienced enough in, and thus want to explore it further. Is there anything you really dislike and want to avoid like the plague? No. Is there something you are uncomfortable with happening to your character? No. Do you have any short-term or long-term goals with this character? Short-term goal is for Khaar to build up an impressive commando force for the Empire, comprised of exceptionally excellent Imperial Soldiers. That and advancement.
Name: Khaar Khayish. Species: Human. Pureblood percentage: 10%. Homeworld: Dromund Kaas. Age: 26. Gender: Male. Rank: Sith Apprentice. Master: Lord Rirr, subservient to Darth Decimus. Former master(s): Sith Holocrons, Independent Study. Apprentice(s): None. Sphere of influence: Sphere of Military Offense (current), Sphere of Military Strategy (Affiliated).
Khaar stands at a height of 193 centimetres, accompanying seemingly compressed musculature in an otherwise thin and long-limbed frame. A drastic deviation from expected predictions from prior documentation which were recently put into archival; his physical growth experiencing a drastic shift since 5 years prior's report. Additionally, natural Sith discolouration and features prevalent: pale pigmentation and hair, reddish-yellow ocular distortions. Battle-scarring rampant across lower, middle, and upper torso, front and back, in addition to upper arms and legs. Nature presumed to be primarily shrapnel and lightsaber in origin.
Typically wears combat-ready attire, comprising of a typical blend between armour and robes produced in symbiotic fashion. Ease of movement unimpeded, and multi-layered defense, with vital areas pronouncedly more protected. The lower robe can be removed with ease.
Addendum: Investigation performed post-interview (Agent Syrric, under supervision of Morann Varr) pronounce it unnatural in origin.
Best image I could find that could help picture him.
Report on natural ability with the Force, as well as all known Force Techniques and the skill levels.
Battle-records and official war-effort documentation has shown prevalence, and even expertship, in telekinetic usage. Most likely due to existing natural aptitude. At the same time, aversion to differing force skills seem prevalent, naturally falling back, and excelling as a result, in a smaller variety of skills as opposed to generalized knowledge. Pre-existing awareness of skills and their uses does of course exist, but it is instead a matter of how often they see their light on the fields of conflict. Powers aligning closely with the originator-skill of telekinesis are thusly widely prefered. Due to his smaller repetoire of abilities, he does show imaginative usage of them for his age and grade of mastery.
Force Speed - Intermediate Talent. Telekinesis - Expert Talent. Force Throw - Intermediate Talent. Telekinetic Defense - Intermediate Training. Force Sight (Basic) - Intermediate Talent. Force Sense - Basic Training. Mind Trick - Basic Training. Force Jump - Intermediate Training. Force Choke - Basic Training. Breath Control - Basic Talent. Force Lightning - Basic Training. Force Scream - Intermediate Training.
Report on skills not directly rooted in the Force, including level of skill
All documentable skills and attributes pertain towards battlefield usage, outside of required routine acquired and expanded from the academy: high degrees of combat intelligence and intuition, heightened reflexes in addition to the ability to control them, as well as generalized knowledge of battlefield combat tactics and deployment strategies focused solely on the terrestrial sphere of warfare. Exceptional fortitude and perseverence may also be worthy of note, in addition to an acquired ability to repair 'custom training droids.' Immense physical capability compared with individuals of his frame and age.
Skills are presumed to have been acquired from birth, in the academy, under apprenticeship under Lord Rirr, and lastly from independent training in progressive order. Certain anomalies are noted amongst the repetoire.
Self-sufficiency skills of convenience, such as piloting, cooking, and similar, have not yet been pursued or needed. For now Khaar Khayish has always traveled with official military shuttles and aboard sanctioned warships of the Imperial Navy to be deployed, and it is assumed that his grace with General Maarn of the 77th Battlegroup will most likely allow shuttling services.
Possibility for Sith Alchemical influence on his developments are potential and likely, inquiry towards investigative stations have been filed.
Addendum: Sith Alchemical influence in development of Khaar Khayish is confirmed, extent is presumed purely physical.
Report on known combat experience, training and lightsaber training.
Initial failures prevalent in early academy upbringing, progressively turning towards success under stress of punishment. Naturally succeptible to lightsaber techniques and the philosophies they represent, in addition to that of the Sith itself. Whilst talent in dueling is apparent even in early life, skills did not flourish until after graduation, where Khaar Khayish entered apprenticeship under Lord Rirr. Both individuals were secluded and removed from all spheres for a period of 1 year, necessary documentation and obligations put on-hold or re-delegated during that time.
Immediately following, and until now, Khaar Khayish had been stationed, and had remained stationed, with the 77th Imperial Battlegroup, following along on their military campaigns. Extensive combat prevalent, and rising renown followed. Re-checked documentation from their previous general reported initial unease about the posting due to lack of skill and experience, but rapidly Khaar Khayish became a highly valued asset.
Khaar Khayish's combat style is built around the Djem So (Form V), supplemented with Ataru (Form IV) and to a larger degree Juyo (Form VII). Naturally, understanding of Shii-Cho (Form I) is also present, but does not take up great presence. His emotion act as sufficient supplement for both Form V, and Form VII, and his ability to control his temperament, whilst not perfect, is sufficient for his present style. No obvious information regarding the topic exists, but it is the informed belief of the Imperial Intelligence Agency that Juyo was an acquired skill recieved from his master, Lord Rirr.
Form V (Djem So) - Expert Talent. Form IV (Ataru) - Intermediate Training. Form I (Shii-Cho) - Basic Training. Form VII (Juyo) - Basic Talent.
Detailed notes on political influence and associates.
Khaar Khayish's influence is negligible in and of itself, but his person is a price many Sith Lords are looking out for. His prospects are presently limited, however, by Lord Rirr, an influential follower under Darth Decimus, who is powerful amidst their Cadre, and notably skilled in Sith Alchemy. Numerous instances have been reported, and duely privately archived, of Sith Lords approaching Lord Rirr's only apprentice with 'ill intent' and thusly removed.
Outside of this, growing relevance within not only the 77th Battlegroup, but also progressively the Imperial Army proper in addition. Notably close ties do not exactly exist, but a partnership of relative depth is found between General Maarn and Khaar Khayish due to their proximity. Local forces also hold him to exceptional regard, partly due to his station, but partly due to his accomplishments and proximity.
Connections made in the Academy were broken off immediately after entering tutelage under Lord Rirr, with the 77th Battlegroup being stationed unusually distant, yet strategically important, from them.
His posting has officially concluded as of this report, with Lord Rirr maintaining relative silence. Khaar Khayish is presently headed towards urbanized environments within the Empire.
Detailed notes on known rivals and enemies, outside and within the Empire.
Lord Rirr (Master) - Khaar Khayish is naturally inclined towards rebellion against Lord Rirr due to the nature of his ambition and aggression, however Lord Rirr has extensively barred those possibilities for him in meticulous manner. This, naturally, breeds unquenching hostility.
Jedi Master Myr C'Jin - Khaar Khayish suffered immense defeat at the hands of this, relatively, superior combatant. He has shown no obvious hostility towards them, but it is assumed to still exist, albeit in internalized fashion. It is unclear if it may become actionable, or if it merely fuels growth.
His relationships are short, and appear artificial in origin. Though they are backed up by reliable sources, conclusion made is that his relationships be orchestrated by third-party influence.
List and description of other known associates, including underlings.
Any relationships he might have in the future, he does not at present; he has been socially isolated from everyone save for the 77th Battlegroup, where he plays a keystone role, since his apprenticeship. That situation will presumably end as of this immediate moment, considering Lord Rirr's behaviour.
His grace with the troops might not matter much in the future outside of direct battle, but his connections with the General of the 77th Battlegroup could prove useful, especially since General Maarn operates within the Sphere of Military Strategy. The writer of this report wishes to propose the prospect that division between Lord Rirr and General Maarn could be a potential reason for Lord Rirr's behaviour and lifting control over Khaar Khayish.
List of known all ownerships, including vessels, non-standard equipment, slaves and locations.
The most notable item within his possession is a lightsaber, extensively tinkered. Twice as long, hilt-wise, as any regular saber, making double-handing an ease. Common red synethetic crystal, with small, dagger-like guards pointed upwards along the light-blade's edge. These guards are likely made of some sort of pseudo-resistant material. Their purpose seems akin to deflecting strikes that would wish to unfinger an opponent. It appears well maintained, and is dutifully assembled. It mimics the appearance of a masterpiece on its surface.
Beyond this, Khaar Khayish has a technical ownership of two properties, both filed in his master's name; in Kaas City, and in the Sith Academy. Both small in prospect, presumably purchased with an apprentice in mind by his master. He has yet to see them, nor experience them. Khaar Khayish has trained, but not at the academy since having graduated.
Psychological evaluation of candidate.
His personality is built around a strange view of the world and its current prospects. Odd thought processes which develop either into jaw-dropping victories or catastrophic defeats. Hints of traditionalism are, naturally, largely prevalent, in particular regarding sith code, but when it comes to things outside of that sphere of thinking, his behaviour may take enigmatic turns in absurd directions. A form of revolutionary thinking centered on the self and the wants of it.
Khaar Khayish is angered by his stubborn awareness of his exemplary arrogance, or to put it in other words, his key emotional psycho-characteristics empower eachother, strenghtening them. These powerful emotions are key Sith drivers for strenghtening one's control within the way of the sith and the dark side of the force, future prospects might prove interesting for this individual. His immense emotions are typically sealed within a layer of Juyo when they become too powerful for his own good, in which case he tactically repositions himself from the present situation; these events can occur anywhere from on the battlefield to in an unsuspecting cantina. The by-product of these behaviours do tend towards strange impression regarding the individual in question.
List and description of known and suspected flaws. To be put into restricted database.
The most crucial weakness in Khaar Khayish is his natural aversion to chance, which is to say that he is a bad gambler. If victory is not overwhelmingly certain, he distances himself and utilizes others to sway the odds into a fashion where his participation can be assured to prove effective. This ability to use others is a powerful disposition to have naturally as a Sith, but his aversion to risk-taking may also prove an equally powerful detriment in the future, as sometimes risks must be taken for victory. War is chaotic, and sometimes chaotic gambles need to be taken.
Not to mention that over-reliance on others to acquire success for yourself may indeed lead to chaotic results and resolutions the further this is allowed to develope.
However, in the same breath, what Khaar Khayish may percieve as a risky gamble, and a move towards overwhelming victory, does not seem to align with common sentiment. He does not appear perplexed when his actions are met with disaster, or may seem unsatisfied if his assaults result in dominating victories. General Maarn, the supposed 'teacher', himself stated that trying to understand it was beyond hopeless.
Additionally, Khaar Khayish has an innate drive for dominance, and enforcing his own will on others. It does not manifest where it is unlikely to be effective, but when it comes to subordinates and cooperators, he speaks his mind and expects people to listen and understand it. This is, of course, even with his ludicrous way of thinking. This has most prevalently manifested itself during duels where, if things do not progress as he'd like, his anger is fueled, and empowered by it. Creating a cyclical anger which fuels itself the longer it lasts. If given enough time, his control of self may find itself impeded by it. Amongst a number of examples.
Lastly, Khaar Khayish suffers a form of reality disassociation, seeing and living in two different versions of the galaxy. Conditions such as these are difficult to adequately document, and as such it is even more difficult to predict how it may present itself. Ultimately, this type of living may lead to excessive gathering of enemies without any explicit awareness of having garnered them, or care for the notion of the prospect.
This, in itself, may be the most dangerous flaws amongst all of them. This is because he isn't aware of it, as for better or for worse, he has been isolated from them by literally and mentally, and will now have to experience the weight of it now that he will be returning from the frontlines.
Known interests of the candidate.
Dueling is the chief interest of Khaar Khayish, with his interest being so immense that when there is no battle to be had, he is often found confined within a training chamber engaging a variety of different, personalized, custom training droids. The previous general of the 77th Battlegroup even going so far as to raise complaints within internal offices regarding the resource waste they had to expend. A compromise was made, through arduous effort and immense internalized tension, that Khaar Khayish would build his own droids and thusly reduce their waste expenditure to parts as opposed to fully constructed machines.
Khaar Khayish is additionally a known record hoarder, with the interesting twist of destroying them upon completion. Conclusion being that the act itself is a matter of routine as opposed to any engrained worry. These records are not limited to holocrons and other valuable training assets, but even abstract and otherwise useless in nature.
Khaar Khayish has, additionally, had a prevalent history of attempting to acquire interests where none had previously existed. Often falling short, but as a result, he has a wide array of experiences with both abstract and commonplace hobbies, topics, and events. Rarely deep in context, however.
Major achievements on record.
Operation Vicious Dragon - During an operation on Balmorra, a impossibly important vessel for both the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic ambitions, in the galactic north-eastern portion, the 77th Battlegroup partook in a combined invasion and attained high honours in the battle. The event aroused by localized rebellious factions of the recently conquered territories. This achievement not only put the 77th Battlegroup into a position of some renown within the spheres of military operations, but it also paved the way for Khaar Khayish's shift between begrudged ally and welcomed addition within the localized military forces.
During the assault, and immediately after the landing on the planet, Khaar Khayish lead a contingent of Imperial soldiers against a fortified anti-orbital position and disabled the emplacement, whereby he thereafter defended the position from extensive counter-assault by rebellious elements. No unsanctioned Jedi present within the conflict zone according to documentation. The hall-mark trait of his assault was the swiftness by which it was delivered and concluded, and the ad-hoc but effective nature of its defense.
An interesting note to be sure was the repurposing of the orbital defense cannon, whose position was in a tactically convenient position to directly assault non-orbital threats (being erected in a less elevated position geographically than the assaulting forces). It acted thusly as an improvised defense cannon with impressive effect.
Operation Endulgance - Bacrana, the position where most of the 77th Battlegroup's recent missions have been held, was also the place for Khaar Khayish's most notable military achievement, namely the elimination of several unsanctioned Jedi Knights interloping in the area over the course of the operation, which lasted for 2 years in its entirety. This isn't to say that the Jedi were present for the entirety of it however, as they supposedly arrived and disappeared within short notice. Current accounts of the survivors are unverifiable.
The first target to be eliminated, a Jedi Knight of unidentifiable origin due to the severity of their dismemberment during the clash; Imperial Intelligence believes it to be one by the name of Suphra Kaan of some repute, thanks to intercepted reports from republic intelligence networks, and their preceding disavowing of the actioners. Undoubtedly the most difficult of the encounters during the mission.
The rest were non-noteworthy; recently ordained Jedi Knights with little possibility for effect on the field of battle and the war effort, especially considering their unaffiliated participation in the planetary conflict.
Major failures on record. Confidential.
Operation Endulgance - The power and overbearing dominance of his section of the battlefield prompted swift and accurate response by seasoned Jedi fighters, most specifically that of the master of Suphra Kaan, Jedi Master Myr C'Jin, who rapidly defeated him in response to his hyper-aggressive position within the Imperial Battle-line. The Republic would have us believe, naturally, that this was an independent operation by rogue agents.
He suffered gruesome defeat nonetheless, and was gravely injured, which necessitated pause in not only his advance, but in the entire combined offensive, due to the now colossal penetration of Imperial lines by Republic and Jedi forces. His now loyal subordinates managed to recover him, thanks in part to inaction by the victor of the duel themselves.
Months worth of recuperative efforts had to be endured, which were thereby preceded by an immense denouncement of Khaar Khayish by the hands of the former General of the 77th Battlegroup, who was swiftly reprimanded and re-tasked after the incident. General Maarn took tutelage and responsibility for Khaar Khayish in military affairs thereafter. All the same, the failure fell solely on Khaar Khayish, whose tactics and strategies relied on unreasonable circumstances when faced with equally unreasonable precedents. No one could have reasonably assumed the Jedi's interference in a conflict so deeply rooted already. But when they showed, Khaar's tactics adjusted accordingly, and were seemingly reliant on his absolute victory.
General Maarn was likely under no illusion as to the invalidity of Khaar Khayish's thinking at this point of the conflict, and most likely took tutelage of the Sith Apprentice's tactics and battlefield command both in part of it, and the belief that the young Sith could become something greater because of it.
The events of the operation has always existed thereafter within the forefront of Khaar Khayish's mind, both as a reminder of exellence, and as a proof of weakness. His arduous training may, in part, be due to this event. No known hostility against Jedi Master Myr C'Jin has been noted after the event up to this date. It is presumed to be internalized. Jedi Master Myr C'Jin has disappeared from knowledge after the conclusion of the operations on Bacrana.
Personal biography, as detailed by the candidate for use in imperial archives. Acquired shortly after last achievement of note.
Born to an inadequate household amidst the Kaas City region, my family were naturally ecstatic at the prospect when the revelation of my force sensitive nature was revealed.
I was naturally enrolled thereafter into the Sith Academy post-haste, where I was naturally accustomed to its proceedings, but fell short of attaining my desired results in the early days of my enrollment. My weakness persisted for some time, before I overpowered it.
My efforts dominated against that weakness and prevailed as is only natural, garnering skills that would only grow thereafter. Dominating those whom needed dominance, and abiding the rules of the mighty. Learning from them.
I formed rivalries and relationships all the same, as all acolytes and neophytes are condition to do, but they were promptly cut short when I was picked up by Lord Rirr just prior of my graduation. He explicitly informed me, of course, that this would not be made official until after the ceremony, and everything proceeded thusly. Plotting, no doubt.
After my graduation, I've been in Lord Rirr's personal service without reprieve, initially secluded to training and empowering myself for the first year, after which I was sent for my remaining time towards contested territories and counter-rebellion prospects along the 77th Battlegroup. All of which was under Lord Rirr's presumed authority, he has amassed a large quantity of connections and favours over the years after all. Through those events, I gained the strength to destroy and lead with equal ferocity as I had spent learning within the academy.
If not more.
My history with the 77th Army altogether has been eventful, and enlightening... Its leadership were bold in their own way, and their methods allowed for suitable expansion upon them by myself as I saw fit to experiment.
This, naturally, lead to contention, which has been resolved. General Maarn assumed command from the absolute mongrol who had it prior, and has allowed me adequate room for growth and reflection. He is a master to me far more than Lord Rirr has ever been, even though his efforts are a large part of who I am today. General Maarn not being sith matters not to me, because he has knowledge of which anyone should pay respect and learn, expand, and improve upon.
I will be grateful, always, to Lord Rirr's efforts, but I will not schackle myself to him indefinitely. General Maarn sees potential within me, I presume. For otherwise he would not bother with whatever he is doing to presumably spite Lord Rirr. And I will use that potential to actualize it.
