The character page for Star Wars: Legacy.
The hero of the story, but hero may be a loose term to describe him. Cade was a Jedi Padawan who was separated from his fellow Jedi and family when the Sith attacked the Jedi Temple on Ossus. After being rescued by a pirate crew, he became a pirate himself.
Despite his obvious inheritance, Cade doesn't want to know anything about either Jedi or Sith; he just want to be left alone. But as he's about to discover, sometimes things aren't the way one wishes, and that we must take what is given.
- Anti-Hero: Unscrupulous Hero through the main series. By Legacy — War, he's more of a Pragmatic Hero.
- Badass Longcoat: Frequently wears one, which sets him apart from the Jedi robes of his ancestors.
- Bounty Hunter: Became one after leaving the Jedi.
- The Cameo: He, Jariah, and Deliah make a cameo in Legacy as scamming Sauk by selling him a stabilizing coil for an expensive price. Doubles as One Degree of Separation.
- Dating Catwoman: He and Darth Talon have a... history together.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: At the end of the first Legacy run, he almost commits a Heroic Sacrifice to permanently kill Krayt via Taking You with Me (as Krayt could just use Cade's body to revive himself) by piloting themselves into a star, but Luke convinces him to live on. Jariah and Deliah are able to retrieve him afterwards thanks to his mother putting a tracker on the locket she gave him before he set off to kill Krayt, and the trio moves forward with their lives, with Cade accepting his identity as a Jedi. While the One Sith has gone into hiding and will strike again in the future, and Krayt may come back, for now (or at least after Vol 2.), the galaxy is at peace.
- Functional Addict: Cade frequently does drugs, such as death sticks, to silence the Force.
- Gun And Sword: His most used weapon is a lightsaber, but unlike the Jedi (or the Sith) he isn't above using blasters, sometimes at the same time.
- Healing Hands: Dark transfer. To wit; it can heal normally fatal wounds, and also kill much more efficiently than any known weapon. Two big drawbacks; it's fueled by the dark side (the Jedi on Ossus were trying to figure out how to fix this), and the recipient must accept it, or at least not actively reject it, or it won't work. It was made compatible with the light side later, though.
- HeelFace Revolving Door: Due to his issues, he ends up falling to the dark side at one point and the One Sith attempts to recruit him, but he returns to the light.
- The Hero: He's forced to take this role by virtue of his bloodline only. If he had his own way, he'd still be smuggling and racking up bounties in the Outer Rim with no worries.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: After he comes into conflict with the Empire, Imperial media portrays him as a terrorist.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Cade at the start is an utter jackass but he eventually begins to soften up to the people he loves.
- Lovable Rogue: By the end, he's still a Bounty Hunter but has become more altruistic and accepted his destiny as a Jedi.
- Love Redeems: What is it that finally allows Cade to use his Dark Transfer healing ability without the use of the dark side and to staunchly become an enemy of the Sith once and for all? His love for Deliah Blue.
- Never Be Hurt Again: Cade loses his father at the start of the series and the pain this causes him, along with his inability to properly deal with it, causes him to strongly cling to those he does manage to develop bonds with in order to avoid suffering the same pain of loss ever again. This leads to him unlocking and using his Dark Transfer ability to heal his Jedi Master, Wolf Sazen, shortly after losing his father, which in turn causes Cade to call on the dark side of the Force. Using the ability afterwards constantly causes him to get closer and closer to the Dark Side and he continually uses it to avoid losing those he loves, such as Jariah and Blue. This reaches a tipping point when he uses the ability to forcibly keep Azlyn Rae alive, even though she begs him to let her go, saying that she is ready to accept death. Though she does end up surviving, Azlyn cuts off all ties with Cade afterwards, telling him that he forced his own will upon her. When Cade responds that he loves her, she tells him that he doesn't love anyone and only cares about himself.
- One Degree of Separation: As mentioned in The Cameo above, he and the others met Sauk, so they were pretty close to meeting Ania, another heroic descendant of Anakin and Padmé.
- Psychic Powers: The usual that both Jedi and Sith possess, including, but not limited to telekinesis, the ability to sense emotions, and mild Telepathy.
- Refusal of the Call: He knows fully well how badly it went for the Skywalker family (and everyone that married into it). Let's see... Anakin was a Fallen Hero who became a monster because of Despair Event Horizon; the fate of the galaxy fell on Luke's shoulders, meaning he has to clean up after everything; Mara had a HeelFace Turn but was eventually killed by her own nephew and left Luke a widow; Jaina had to kill her own FaceHeel Turn brother, Jacen, and Jacen's turn to the dark side was catalyzed after their younger brother, Anakin, had died; Leia lost her adoptive family, homeworld, (indirectly by the actions of her biological father), and her two sons; Allana was believed to be in danger and lost her father, who was trying to keep her safe by turning to the dark side himself like his grandfather, and possibly even more.
- Screw Destiny: To the point that his father and Luke appear to him to get him back on track. Mara Jade and Anakin appear to him as well, to the point that Anakin as Vader shows up at one point as well. When Vader of all people shows up to tell you to rethink your choices, you (but apparently not Cade) know it's serious.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: When he taps into the dark side.
- Superpowerful Genetics: Comes with the name of Skywalker.
- Teacher/Student Romance: After he gets captured by the One Sith, he decides to learn from them and Krayt assigned Talon to be his teacher. It's implied they slept together.
Cade's best friend and fellow pirate, Jariah would do anything for Cade. He's an expert in any kind of weapons, especially the rare ones, such as Yuuzan Vong bioweapons, and explosives.
- Black Best Friend: Has been friends with Cade since they were teenagers.
- The Casanova: Syn is the only one on the Mynock not in a committed relationship which he uses to run wild, including with Cade's cousin Ahnah.
- Dreadlock Warrior: Keeps his hair in this style.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Syn is arguably the most amoral of the Mynock but he's also a good friend, a loyal partner, and ultimately willing to join the hero's side.
- The Lancer: He serves as Cade's right hand man.
- Loveable Rogue: He's an unapologetic criminal but there's a likability to him.
- Mage Killer: Hates Jedi after seeing one kill his father. Specializes in Yuuzhan Vong weaponry, over which the Force has no control. This caused some friction between him and Cade when he reveals he's a Jedi, but they got over it.
- Scary Black Man: He's a thuggish guy who specializes in Yuuzhan Vong tech which is intimidating enough on it's own.
- Stuff Blowing Up: He has a knack for explosives and states that he "lives for the boom".
- Troubled Sympathetic Bigot: Towards Jedi because one killed his father. After meeting the Jedi who actually killed his father, he accepts that his father provoked his own death by being a criminal and lets go.
- You Killed My Father: To the Jedi Rasi Tuum. Ultimately it turns out that his father had been butchering people for fun, and Rasi had given him the chance to come quietly only to be rebuffed.
The third member of Cade's crew, Deliah is a Zeltron woman with a knack for mechanics. Has an obvious crush on Cade, given the amount of flirtation she does around him.
- Bare Your Midriff: 90% of her costumes leaves a good chunk of her midriff exposed.
- Breakout Character: Zeltron characters in other Star Wars titles became popular for a while after her introduction.
- The Chick: Serves as the most moral and emotional center of Cade's group.
- First Girl Wins: The first run of Legacy ends with Cade and Deliah being together, though their future is not set in stone and can be prone to change.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: Due to being a Zeltron, she has red skin and blue hair, and is a subject of fanservice.
- Expy: Of Dani, the original Zeltron character from Marvel Star Wars.
- Ms. Fanservice: Part of the Zeltrons' hat, though she subverts the Zeltron hat by pursuing a committed, long-term relationship with Cade.
- Woman Scorned: After Cade fooled around with Talon. They patched things up fairly quick, though.
- Wrench Wench: She's the engineer of the Mynock
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It matches her name.
The trusty droid that has served the Skywalker line for generations, and is given to Cade partway through the series. Apparently he was owned by K'Kruhk in the meantime. He doesn't receive the usual attention he usually does though, but does get a few gags and plot-important moments.
For more information on him, see Star Wars Theatrical Legends.
The descendant of Han and Leia Organa Solo. Unlike some of her more famous relatives, she lives on the lower end of galactic society and operates a junkyard.
- Badass Normal: Seems to have gotten this from Han.
- Continuity Nod: She has the same belt as Cade.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: The design on her signature hoodie.
- Goggles Do Nothing: She seems to think they're a necklace. Preview art shows her using them, though.
- Jumped at the Call: Although she thought she was jumping at something else entirely.
- Quick Draw: Something she obviously got from Han. She even does this to someone behind her.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Her reaction to being told the government wants to let Darth Wredd kill his fellow Sith free of interference.
- Tomboyish Ponytail: She occasionally puts it up.
A survivor and refugee from the Destruction of Dac, Sauk is a friend of Ania's who gets dragged along as she gets in trouble with the local law.
- Asteroid Miners: He worked on an asteroid mining ice, a job he considers relatively comfortable considering his situation.
- Only Sane Man: Wants to get a slightly better job as an engineer on a starship versus vast wealth.
A centuries-old droid and a regular customer of Ania's.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Appeared on the Hardman variant cover for issue 1, despite not being seen until issue 2.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: His coat has one sleeve.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: Gets cut in half by Wredd, but since he's a droid, it just leaves him griping about how inconveniencing it is to Ania.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He saves Ania from getting burnt away by acid rain by carrying her to safety, but he damages his internal processing as a result and urges Ania to leave him. He gets better shortly after, though.
- Mundane Made Awesome: He's a high-end assassin droid who pilots a water freighter.
- Really 700 Years Old: He's old enough to remember the golden years of the Jedi, although he didn't specify if it was the old Jedi or Luke's Jedi.
- Ridiculously Human Robot: He behaves quite humanly, engages Ania in casual conversation, worries about the state of the galaxy, and wears a coat. Of course, he still looks very much like a droid.
- Sixth Ranger: Joins Ania's group, and travels with her alone after they decide to go after Wredd.
Unnamed Imperial communications droid
The One Sith
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: The vast majority of the One Sith are covered in red and black tattoos from head to toe, and they wear black robes or armor while carrying red lightsabers.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Their eyes are various shades of yellow or orange, reflecting the taint of the dark side.
- Tattooed Crook: They have ritualistic tattoos covering their bodies. These tattoos are red and black for most of the One Sith, but some stick with just the black tattoos.
The main villain of the series, Darth Krayt is a powerful Sith Lord who abolished Bane's Rule of Two to install the Rule of One. Unlike the other Sith Lords, rather than just gaining power for his own sake, Krayt seeks to bring order to the Galaxy, even if that means to commit genocide. Ruthless and unforgiving, Krayt rules the Galaxy with an iron fist.
He used to be a Jedi named A'Sharad Hett, who upon seeing the Republic and the Jedi order fall under Palpatine, plus the Yuuzan Vong invasion, decided to turn to the Dark Side and create a powerful New Sith Order that would keep the galaxy safe and united.
- Badass Cape: After discarding his Vong armor.
- Back from the Dead: Manages to resurrect himself and purge himself of his Vong implants through sheer power after Wyrrlock mortally wounds him.
- Becoming the Mask: Pretended to be a Sith Acolyte so the Force ghost of XoXaaan would train him.
- Being Tortured Makes You Evil: He was already on his way, but torture at the hands of the Yuuzhan Vong sealed his fall to the Dark Side.
- Big Bad: Of the entire series until the end of War, save for the interim period while he's dead, during which time Wyyrlok handled the role.
- Body Horror: His Vong infection threatens to do this to him.
- Dark Lord on Life Support: His advanced age and Yuuzhan Vong implants are slowly killing him, and hes forced to enter long periods of stasis in order to prolong his life. Hes hell-bent on capturing Cade Skywalker and turning him to the dark side because he believes Cades unique healing abilities can cure him of his affliction. After dying and coming back to life, he appears to have cleansed himself of the implants.
- Darth Vader Clone: Shares many traits with Vader, down to being a fallen Jedi, though with the twist that he's the Big Bad rather than The Dragon (and his Dragon, Wyyrlok, more strongly resembles Vader's master, Palpatine). The fact that he knew Anakin Skywalker personally when both were Jedi, knew that Skywalker was flirting with the Dark Side because he had told Krayt about his massacre of the Sand people, and was horrified to learn that Skywalker became Darth Vader in part because Hett never told the Jedi Council about said massacre and got them to step in, makes this especially ironic and possibly somewhat intentional on the part of Krayt, emulating the man he considers his own greatest failure.
- Disproportionate Retribution: When some of the Mon Calamari help the Galactic Alliance steal a prototype Star Destroyer from their shipyards, Darth Krayt retaliates by ordering the genocide of the Mon Calamari species.
- Dual Wielding: He always fights using two lightsabers.
- Early-Bird Cameo: His appearances before Legacy as Darth Krayt, including the Portent of Doom that led to Jacen Solo's FaceHeel Turn, and his Enemy Mine with Luke in Fate of the Jedi against Abeloth.
- Electronic Eyes: His left eye is a cybernetic prosthetic.
- The Emperor: He rules the Galactic Empire.
- Evil Old Folks: He's over one hundred years old.
- Evil Overlord: He took over the galaxy after purging the Jedi than betraying and usurping Roan Fel's throne.
- Fallen Hero: He was once a Jedi Master, but he fell to the dark side after Palpatine destroyed the Jedi Order.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: Started out as just a Jedi knight from the Clone Wars era that survived Order 66.
- Galactic Conqueror: He deposes Emperor Fel and assumes control of the Empire, effectively making him ruler of most of the galaxy.
- Hurl It into the Sun: Cade makes sure he doesn't come back to life by sending his remains into Coruscant's sun.
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: His first death, anyway. His final one ends the war.
- Knight Templar: His intention is to bring order to the Galaxy more than power for power's sake, which is why the holocron of Darth Bane refuses to help him.
- Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: His desire to bring peace and order to the galaxy is undermined by the fact it was at peace and order at the time, which he sabotaged to enable his takeover. Afterwards, his obsessiveness and excessiveness causes his right hand to try to kill Krayt for becoming a liability to the order he preached.
- Omnicidal Maniac: After rising from the dead and becoming convinced that all life needs to experience death as he did.
- Order vs. Chaos: He thinks to be the order to the Jedi's chaos.
- Our Liches Are Different: Becomes a Star Wars version of one after learning how to cheat death.
- Really 700 Years Old: He was born in 47 BBY, and was friends with Anakin Skywalker when he was a young boy. He lived until 138 ABY, and fought Anakin's descendant far down the line, Cade. He accomplishes this by hibernating in order to prevent his Vong infection from killing him.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Due to his infection with Vong biots, he must hibernate to extend his life and prevent the infection from killing him.
- Start of Darkness: Becoming a bounty hunter after having his arm cut off by Obi-Wan.
- Secret Identity: A'Sharad Hett.
- Spikes of Villainy: Though the spikes aren't part of his armor.
- Villainous Breakdown: Over several issues after Cade escapes him.
Darth Wyyrlok III
The third of his name, Wyyrlok serves as Krayt's most trusted adviser.
- The Consigliere: To Darth Krayt, though despite advising, he is anything but loyal.
- The Dragon: Krayt's Voice and right hand. Briefly becomes a Dragon Ascendant after Krayt dies.
- Evil Chancellor: He plots to overthrow Krayt and rule the One Sith himself.
- Evil Overlord: Briefly becomes the ruler of the galaxy after betraying Krayt and seizing power in his name.
- Evil Sorcerer: While most of Krayt's main enforcers are warriors, he prefers force abilities.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick: He's much more level-headed than Krayt, which works to his advantage.
- Legacy Character: He is the third Darth Wyyrlok and his daughter is meant to take on his role and Sith name.
- Meaningful Name: His name sounds like "Warlock", and he's proficient in Sith magic.
- Mouth of Sauron: Like his mother and grandfather, one of his tasks is to serve as the Voice of Krayt when the latter goes into hibernation.
- Number Two: To Darth Krayt, as his Voice.
- Pragmatic Villainy: He points out that Darth Krayts genocide of the Mon Calamari will cost the Empire the use of the Mon Calamari shipyards.
- The Starscream: An interesting variation- he betrays Krayt only because he believes Krayt himself has already betrayed his own vision.
A male Nagai warlord turned Sith, who became Krayt's military commander. He lead the attack on the Jedi Temple on Ossus, and killed Kol Skywalker.
- An Arm and a Leg: Cade gets off his arm. As punishment, Krayt refuses to let Maladi reattach it and instead forces a Yuuzhan Vong bioform on him.
- Arch-Enemy: To Cade, at the beginning of the series due to his murder of Kol.
- Blood Knight: Relishes battle, though to a slightly less suicidal extent than most examples.
- Co-Dragons: With Talon in Legacy: War.
- The Dragon: As a 'Hand'. He also becomes one to Wyyrlok, briefly.
- Dragon Ascendant: Becomes the new leader of the One Sith after the final death of Emperor Krayt.
- Evil Albino: Looks like one because of his white Nagai skin and his red Sith eyes.
- Hero Killer: Is the Sith who personally killed Kol Skywalker.
- Karma Houdini: Survives the war and leads the Sith into hiding, though he did lose his sword arm to Cade in a duel along the way.
- Meaningful Name: His name is "nil", meaning none.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's more hot-headed and ambitious than Talon.
- The Rival: With Talon for the position of Krayt's Hand. It's more personal on his side.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Goes into hiding along with the rest of the Sith in the final issue after Krayt's death.
- The Unfavorite: Of Darth Krayt's lackies, he seems to have a particular fondness for tormenting Nihl.
- You Killed My Father: He killed Cades. While he lives, Cade does still get some payback by beating and humiliating him.
A female Twi'lek recently promoted to Sith Lady. Cold and dispassionate, she only seeks to do her master's bidding.
- Ambiguous Situation: It's not clear if she's actually Lethan (a red-skinned Twi'lek) or if her red skin is a result of the One Sith tattoos.
- Boobs of Steel: She's rather... busty, and she's one of the strongest warriors of the One Sith.
- Co-Dragons: With Nihl in Legacy: War after Krayt returns and kills his former right-hand man Wyyrlok.
- Dark Chick: The most prominent female Sith in the series.
- Dating Catwoman: When she's assigned as Cade's Sith Master, they strike up a sexual relationship.
- Emotionless Girl: She doesn't seem to have any feelings besides her loyalty to Krayt and her "benefit" with Cade when he tried being a Sith.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Darth Krayt asks her if she cares about her master, Darth Ruyn, and she answers that she does. Not that it stops her from carrying out Krayt's order to execute him as proof of her Undying Loyalty to Krayt, though given Talon later states she believes Ruyn cared about her too in that he let himself be a Sacrificial Lamb so that his apprentice could complete her training. Considering the One Sith is a cult, this mindset and procedure is probably considered normal.
- Karma Houdini: She survives with Nihl and Maladi, and they both go into hiding.
- Ms. Fanservice: Well, if it's not obvious enough already...
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: She's a Twi'lek so it comes with the territory
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In the final issue, she is one of the Sith who goes into hiding rather than die.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: No, she doesn't care how horny her outfit and body makes you. You'd probably be dead before you can set your eyes on her anyway.
- Series Mascot: Might as well be. The first issue and the recap issues have her on the cover, and she's probably the most iconic Legacy era character. This can probably be credited to her Green-Skinned Space Babe status.
- The Stoic: She cares not for her own feelings, only Krayt's.
- Stripperific: Her outfit is composed of a two-piece with a loincloth, boots, a headdress, and gloves. Her outfits in Maul aren't much better. Concept of her for The Force Awakens at least covers her midriff.
- Undying Loyalty: Like many of the other One Sith, she's been trained her whole life to be one of Krayt's attack dogs, ultimately dependent on him despite her high rank and status. This is why she falls back on Nihl when the One Sith goes into hiding at the end of the series.
Darth Maladi (Malincha)
A Sith Lady expert in toxins, poisons, and chemicals as well as torture, interrogation and spying. Still, she's as good with a lightsaber as any other Sith.
- The Baroness: When compared to Darth Talon.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Formerly Malincha, a young Jedi-in-training whose father was a Jedi, Darth Krayt killed her father and abducted Malincha, breaking her into a Sith.
- Evil Genius: Krayt's
- Karma Houdini: Survives with Nihl, Havok, and Talon.
- Mad Scientist: The Sith's resident science expert.
- Meaningful Name: Malady (except with an "I" instead of a "Y"), befitting her expertise.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Maladi is very much like the word "maladie" which is French for "disease".
- Raised by Orcs: Her father was a Jedi. Krayt killed him and took Malincha into the Sith.
- The Starscream: Except she was faking it.
Darth Havok (Eshkar Niin)
A male Iktotchi Sith Lord, who serves as Inquisitor.
- Break Them by Talking: His attempt to goad Antares into the dark side.
- Evil Mentor: When he was still an Imperial Knight, he was Antares Draco's Master.
- FaceHeel Turn: He used to be an Imperial Knight, but then he betrayed the Fel Empire, killed Empress Elliah Fel, and joined the One Sith.
- Karma Houdini: Escapes death in the final issue along with Nihl and several other Sith.
- Number Two: He is last seen speaking with Nihl, as the new Dark Lord, implying he has replaced Wyyrlok as this.
A male Sith Lord who serves as a military commander.
- Arc Villain: He's the main antagonist of the Mon Calamari story arc.
- Bad Boss: All There in the Manual establishes that he studied the history and military command style of Darth Vader, including Vader's penchant for murdering subordinates that fail him. One admiral chooses to commit suicide rather than face Azards wrath after failing him.
- Conveniently Timed Distraction: In issue 50, he gets distracted from his duel with Wolf Sazen when he senses the return of Darth Krayt. This distraction allows Sazen to strike him down.
- Bald of Evil: As a Givin, he's naturally hairless. As a Sith scientist, he takes pride in crafting toxins and pathogens that kill billions.
- The Butcher: Known as "The Butcher of Dac."
- Even Evil Has Standards: Not him, but even the Hutts, who aren't exactly pinnacles of virtue, are disgusted by his cruelty.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: Cade slices him in half.
- Mad Scientist: Isen has provided the One Sith with more than a few horrible things from his experiments. Some notable examples include an aquatic version of the Leviathan and a plague that killed uncountable billions on at least two worlds.
- Plaguemaster: He develops a Synthetic Plague that kills all life on Dac, and later develops one meant to kill all life on Utapau. Cade kills him before he can unleash it.
- Ambiguous Situation: His species is unknown.
- The Dragon: Darth Maladi's personal one.
- Meaningful Name: Darth Kruhl is cruel.
- Professional Killer: His job description.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Killed in a single issue.
Darth Wyyrlok III's daughter, groomed to be his successor as Darth Wrrylok IV.
- Daddy's Little Villain: She's a young lady being groomed to be the successor of her evil dad.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She cares about her dad, as made evident when she was reluctant to leave him when Krayt attacked the Sith Temple. It seems to be mutual.
- Little Miss Badass: Being nothing more than an acolyte and defeats Darth Stryfe, a full-fledged Sith, using nothing more than telekinesis.
- Meaningful Name: In the Sith language, her name means "truth". Fitting for a fledgling warrior born into a Sith cult.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Her eyes are gold, though it's not clear if this is her natural eye color or if it's from being a dark-sider.
The master of Darth Talon.
- Ambiguous Situation: It is unknown if he was actually a red-skinned Twi'lek or just had red skin because of the Sith tattoos.
- Evil Mentor: He trained Darth Talon.
- Evil Old Folks: An old Sith.
- If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten: Talon's final exam to join the Sith? Killing him.
- Sacrificial Lion: He exists solely to establish the One Sith's modus operandi and Darth Talon's character.
A former member of the One Sith. He was Forced into Evil by a minor Sith Lord after the Sith massacred his people, and he dedicated the rest of his life to destroying the One Sith in revenge.
- Ambiguously Evil: On the one hand, he is trying to destroy the One Sith and thus is making the galaxy a far better place; on the other, he uses extreme measures to do so and is largely driven by selfish revenge, and further he implies that he is at least open to starting an all-new Sith Order once the old one has been destroyed, though how serious he was is up for debate since he was effectively committing Suicide by Cop when he makes this offer.
- Anti-Villain: He is a Sith, but he kills other Sith in order to avenge his family and people.
- Being Tortured Makes You Evil: Played With. The Sith locked him up and forced him to wear a tortorous helmet while they killed his people, and then his Drill Sergeant Nasty master forced him to keep it on during his training. However, while he eventually embraced the Dark Side and proved to be an utterly ruthless killer, he did turn on the Sith at the first opportunity and plot to eradicate the One Sith from the galaxy, so he may have some shreds of humanity left.
- Cool Mask: Though he was forced to wear it by his master, so he doesn't think it was very cool.
- Darth Vader Clone: A black-clad Sith, forced to wear a face-concealing mask by his master, and half of one by an injury over part of his face.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: How the galaxy views him. He's a self-proclaimed Darth, for instance. Which, admittedly, is how it should be.
- General Ripper: While impersonating Yalta Val.
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Wore a helmet-like mask while an apprentice and puts it on Val after stealing his identity.
- Last of His Kind: Due to miscalculating how far Jao was willing to go, he is ultimately the last chronological Sith in the Legends timeline when Ania shoots him instead of the Jedi killing him, finally ending the Sith once and for all.
- Rule of Two: It's unknown if he and his master are One Sith or another bunch, but it was clearly just the two of them on that planet.
- The Starscream: As with all Sith to his master. He was also successful.
- Student and Master Team: Was the student to his master. It doesn't last long once he saw his opening, though. Also, from what was seen of it, the dynamic was reversed.
- We Can Rule Together: The ultimatum he gives Val, who refuses.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Has white hair to differentiate him from the real Val, who has black hair.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Pulls this on his dim-witted master once he had taught Wredd all he knew.
The Sith Empire
Council of Moffs
High Moff/Grand Moff/Grand Admiral Morlish Veed
- Big Bad Wannabe: Veed wants to rule the Empire by himself, but he's always one step behind the Sith.
- Casanova Wannabe: Tries to seduce Morrigan Corde unaware that "Corde" is actually Nyna's cover identity.
- Surrounded by Idiots: His reaction to the Council.
- Smug Snake: It becomes very clear that he thinks himself far better then he actually is.
- The Starscream: Betrayed Roan Fel to the Sith.
- Would Hit a Girl: He attempts to kill Nyna.
Director / Moff Nyna Calixte / Agent Morrigan Corde
The Director of Imperial Intelligence and an Imperial Moff. She is in an affair with fellow High Moff Morlish Veed, and was formerly in a relationship with another Moff, Rulf Yage, and had a daughter with him, named Gunn Yage, who would go on to become the Imperial pilot captain of Skull Squadron.
Her true identity is Morrigan Corde, an Imperial Intelligence agent that had fallen in love with Jedi Master Kol Skywalker, married him, and had a son together named Cade Skywalker. However, after two years, she left them and rejoined the Empire, soon abandoning her identity as Morrigan and assuming the persona of Nyna Calixte.
- Action Mom: Cade's mom may not be a Jedi but she is a badass secret agent.
- Ambition Is Evil: As numerous characters point out, she's loyal to only herself, with her schemes being only to advance her own ambitions. Maladi says that if she was Force-senstitive, she might've made a good Sith... under Darth Sidious, maybe.
- Badass Normal: Survives being poisoned and shot at long enough to escape and seek her son's help. Also, as Corde, she manages to defeat a Sith Acolyte all by herself.
- The Baroness: Older than usual, but has the personality.
- Dating Catwoman:
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She supposedly loves Veed and loved Yage, but she does love Gunner. And she genuinely loved Kol and Cade, and she was torn between staying with them and doing her job.
- Even Evil Has Standards: She found the Sith suspicious and untrustworthy.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: Interesting variant in that Cade's already figured it out long before she tells him directly. He's still not happy about it.
- Moff Gromia reveals to Gunner that Morrigan—Gunner's spy partner—and Nyna—Gunner's mother—are the same in hopes that she'll ruin her own mother's reputation out of her grudge towards her, though Gunner refuses to believe it until later.
- Memento MacGuffin: The circular jewel on her choker is a hologram containing a photo of Morrigan with Kol and baby Cade.
- Never Got to Say Goodbye: When she parted ways with Kol, she refused to see her infant son once last time because she knew that she'd never be able to leave if she tried to say goodbye to him.
- No Place for Me There: Refused to go with Kol and baby Cade to Ossus, because the Jedi would never accept her and she felt inadequate to be the mother of a Skywalker. She returned to the Fel Empire to continue her military career as an Imperial Intelligence agent, believing that this was the right thing to do.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Whether or now she is a "heroine" is YMMV, but she's the one responsible for getting the Moff Council to betray the Fel dynasty and joining forces with the One Sith.
- The Spymaster: She's the Director of Imperial Intelligence and a superb spy by herself.
- Walking Spoiler: She's actually Cade's mother in disguise.
- Wham Shot: Issue #9 ending with Nyna looking at a image of an infant Cade being held by a woman who appears to be Morrigan Corde, with Kol at her side, whispering to herself in the present for Cade to run.
- Wild Card: The mastermind behind the Sith-Imperial War but later becomes Roan Fel's mole.
Moff / Grand Admiral Rulf Yage
- Break the Haughty: First, it was Nyna leaving him for Veed because she saw him as better than Yage.
- Drowning My Sorrows: After leading the Massacre at Ossus, he was drunk the following week, having not enjoyed killing all those people for the Sith.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He genuinely loves his daughter, Gunner. His break-up with Nyna also left him heartbroken.
- HeelFace Turn: After his daughter defects back to Roan Fel, he follows her footsteps and abandons the Sith Empire
- Honor Before Reason: Despite coming to dislike the Sith for their underhanded tactics, he still continues to follow their orders, though that's also in part because he fears they'll hurt Gunner if he tries to act against them. Problem solved when they defect back to the Fel Empire together after Gunner reveals that she feels the same as he does.
- Just Following Orders: How he operates. He sees people who can't properly follow instructions as weak, even more so if they make excuses.
- Doesn't necessarily mean he agrees with everything he is ordered to do. For example, he felt immense guilt after performing the Massacre at Ossus under orders from the Sith, noting to his daughter that while solving problems with killing may be effective, it is irreversible.
- My God, What Have I Done?: While he didn't like the Jedi all that much, he didn't enjoy massacring them. According to Gunner, he got drunk shortly after.
- Red Baron: The "Hero of Ossus," though among the Jedi, he's "The Butcher of Ossus". He has come to resent the nickname.
- Working with the Ex: Since they're both moffs, he still works with his ex-wife, Nyna. And to rub in salt into the wound, their boss is her new lover.
Moff Fehlaaur'aitel'loro, "Fehlaaur"
The director of the Imperial Diplomatic Corps and a moff on the Moff Council. He was sent by the Chiss Ascendancy as a liaison to the Fel Empire after the Ascendancy received word that the Empire was about to engage in war against the Galactic Alliance, though this ultimately resulted in Fehlaaur being a moff to the Sith Empire instead shortly after his arrival.
- Everybody Has Standards: He seems somewhat perturbed by Darth Krayt.
- Odd Name Out: He doesn't use the convention of using a core name (which should be "Raithell" in his case). Presumably, he wants to use one of his house names as a Last-Name Basis, especially in the impersonal Moff Council.
- Static Character: There's not much to him besides essentially being a personification of the general Chiss Ascendancy responding to the Sith Empire's actions.
- The Stoic: His demeanor compared to the rest of the Moff Council.
- Token Nonhuman: He's one of the few aliens we see in a high position in the Sith Empire (not counting the One Sith). Justified, since he's an envoy from the Chiss Ascendancy, their alliance is valuable, so of course he's high-ranking.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: We don't see what happens to him after the final battle at Taivas, other than that he was still with the Sith Empire by then.
Moff Konrad Rus
Moff Nieve Gromia
- "Everyone has secrets—even her [Morrigan]. And secrets are power "
The Moff of the Arkanis sector, tasked with eliminating Black Sun pirates harassing Imperial shipments during the Second Imperial Civil War.
- Bad Boss: She was almost arrested for corruption, but she pinned the blame on one of her subordinates, who would commit suicide. Their suicide was convenient enough for Gromia to make an easier Frame-Up.
- Meaningful Name: "Nieve" means "snow" in Spanish, befitting her cold demeanor.
- One-Shot Character: She only appears in the Tatooine arc.
- Reassigned to Antarctica: She used to be stationed on Coruscant, but a scandal involving corruption in her staff. The alternative was being arrested, but she got out of that. Not that it makes her predicament any better in her eyes, though.

- HeelFace Turn: She eventually realizes the Sith aren't worth following and joins the Fel Empire.
- Long Lost Sibling: She's Cade's maternal half-sister, and neither of them knew this.
- Military Brat: In the Imperial Military like her parents
- Mommy Issues: She resents her mother for leaving her & and her father to be The Baroness as well as being a Manipulative Bitch.
- Strong Family Resemblance: She looks very similar to her mother, Morrigan Corde, as well as her half-brother, Cade.

The Empire-in-exile/the Fel Empire
The Royal Family
Emperor Roan Fel
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's a fully-trained Imperial Knight and not someone to be taken lightly.
- Crusading Widower: His wife was killed by the Sith during their takeover.
- The Emperor: He has the strength of personality, but his authority is pretty much limited to the select few who follow him out of genuine loyalty. He allowed the military and his moffs to take the controversy surrounding the Ossus Project and run with it to start a war that ended with the galaxy being handed back to the Sith on a platter, and his tenure as emperor on Coruscant lasts only a few days.
- Evil Overlord: Subverted; he's a ruthless but fair ruler, by all accounts.
- This is epitomized in one scene from War in which he subverts the dickery of previous Emperors by choosing not to use chemical weapons on the Sith homeworld. Why? Because he's better than that.
- Then played straight in the last issue, when he goes full Fallen Hero, as he gets so desperate to win, he's willing to use the aforementioned chemical weapon on Coruscant.
- Head-in-the-Sand Management: He really should have known better than to trust Veed and Calixte, or to ally with the Sith during the Sith-Imperial War.
- It's All About Me: As long as he's Emperor when the Sith are finished, he doesn't really give a damn what he has to do to accomplish that goal.
- Knight Templar: His need to beat the Sith nearly drives him to genocide and ultimately forces Draco to kill him.
- Mercy Kill Arrangement: He has an agreement with his Inperial Knight bodyguards; if he falls to the Dark Side and can't be redeemed, they must kill him.
- Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: His intentions are to secure his own power, rather than to free the Galaxy. It's what separates him from Gar Stazi.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Is willing to lead his Imperial Knights into battle personally.
Empress Elliah Fel
The wife of Emperor Roan Fel and the mother of Princess Marasiah Fel, as well as the sister of Hogrum Chalk. She was assassinated by the treacherous Imperial Knight, Eshkar Niin, who would go on to become a member of the One Sith as Darth Havok.

- Bodyguarding a Badass: Comes with being an Imperial Knight under Emperor Roan Fel.
- Bodyguard Crush: He's in a relationship with Marasiah Fel.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: Marasiah is just as capable as the Knights.
- The Hero: Ironically much more so than Cade, the actual protagonist. Antares is very much Lawful Good and wants to serve his emperor, protect Marasiah and stop the One Sith. Despite being sorely tested, he doesn't slide anywhere near as close to the Dark Side as Cade, nor does he allow Emperor Fel to do so.
- Heroic BSoD: After revealing to the Sith vital information, under the false belief that they had Marshiah Fel captured.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Whenether Roan Fel takes some morally questionable decisions, he's torn between loyaltly to him and to do what is right. When Fel, in order to extreminate the Sith, planned to use a lethal virus in order to wipe out all life on Coruscant (not knowing that it'll kill everything except the Sith), Antares fights and kills him.
- Praetorian Guard: The leader of the Imperial Royal family's personal guard.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the red to Ganner's blue. Ganner is level-headed, sensitive and humble while Draco is more hot-headed and impulsive.

The Galactic Alliance Remnant
Admiral Gar Stazi
The last Admiral of the Galactic Alliance. He would later represent in the Galactic Triumvirate.
- Bald of Awesome: He can't really help it, since it's a characteristic of Duros.
- Berserk Button: Never tell him about surrender. Unless it's the enemy's surrender.
- Breakout Character: John Ostrander, the creator behind Stazi, only meant to include him on Trust Issues as a way to explain what had happened to the remnants of the Galactic Alliance. However, due to positive fan reaction and his own enjoyment in writing the character, Ostrander decided to expand the character further and create an arc that revolved around him.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Imperial media portrays him as nothing more than a pirate.
Captain Jaius Yorub
- Famous Last Words: "Though battles have been lost, the Alliance still lives. We have not surrendered, we do not concede the stars. We will win back our birthright. Freedom."

- "What you have is here and now—yesterday doesn't matter and tomorrow doesn't exist."
A Mandalorian that followed Mand'alor Chernan Ordo. During the Battle of Botajef, he discovered there was a traitor amongst them, so he disguised himself as an Imperial Stormtrooper to survive and find this traitor, who would be Yaga Auchs. When the Fel Empire transitioned into the Sith Empire, he deserted and joined the Galactic Alliance Remnant.
- Dark Is Not Evil: His Mandalorian armor is primarily black, but in Mandalorian culture, the color black is associated with justice.
Species: Human (Mandalorian)
Hondo's ex-wife. When her father was killed at the Battle of Botajef, she was tricked by the new Mand'alor Yaga Auches that her ex-husband was responsible for his death as well as having become a traitor, causing Tes to go after him in search of revenge.

The father of Cade Skywalker, and the younger brother of Nat Skywalker. He was the master of Jedi Master Wolf Sazen.
- Dating Catwoman: A Jedi who fell in love with Morrigan (an Imperial agent).
- Death by Origin Story: He dies in the first issue to give Cade a reason to angst.
- Posthumous Character: All right, so he's alive in one issue, but dies maybe halfway through that. Quite impressive, though. Every other one of his appearances is a flashback or as a Force ghost.
- Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Given his position. It was this combination that convinced everyone that Mara Jade's bloodline still exists in the Skywalker line.
- Starcrossed Lovers: His relationship with Morrigan didn't work out because she believed the Jedi wouldn't accept her as Kol's lover and the mother of his child, so she returned to serving the Fel Empire.
Master Wolf Sazen
The Jedi Master of Cade Skywalker.
Master Shado Vao
Species: Twi'lek (Rutian)
Cade's best friend, as well as the brother of Astraal Vao. He was Master Kol's second Padawan after Master Sazen, though after Kol's death and Cade's presumed death at the Massacre of Ossus, Vao completed his training to knighthood and attained the rank of master under the apprenticeship of Master Sazen.
- The Ace: He was well-known in the Jedi for being a proficient user in single-bladed and double-bladed lightsaber combat.
- Double Weapon: Carries a double-bladed lightsaber.
- Never Got to Say Goodbye: The last we see of him is asking Morrigan about Cade when she reveals he's going to take Krayt with him to be incinerated by the sun. Cade survives and returns to his normal life, though, so it's possible he and Shado may meet again.

- Always Second Best: He was subordinate to Kol Skywalker, his brother.

Jedi High Council
- Benevolent Mage Ruler: By the end of the series, he sits on the Galactic Triumvirate.
- Cool Old Guy
- Foil: To Darth Krayt. Both were Jedi who survived Order 66 by murdering the clones sent to kill them, and survived the following purge by laying low, before being a vital part in rebuilding their respective orders, and ultimately becoming rulers of the galaxy. But whereas Krayt survived the purge by murdering every witness to his Jedi powers, and ruled as the single, all powerful emperor (the ideology of the One Sith), K'Kruhk survived by laying low, finding people he could trust, and ultimately shared power with his fellow triumvirs.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: Went from a simple Jedi who survived the Purge, to one-part ruler of the f@cking galaxy.
- Made of Iron: Has survived several near-death experiences, including Order 66.

When Order 66 commenced at the end of the Clone Wars, she hid on Nar Shaddaa with Tholme and a pregnant Khaleen until they went to join Quinlan Vos in hiding on Kashyyyk. At some point, she reunited with Master K'Krukh to rebuild the Jedi Order after the fall of the Galactic Empire.
- Ambiguously Brown: She is depicted with non-white features.
- Ambiguous Situation: Given how close T'ra Saa and Mace seem to be, it seems more that she was his actual master (compare in The Clone Wars, the relationship between Anakin and Ahsoka versus Obi-Wan and Ahsoka).
- Cool Old Lady: She's Really 700 Years Old, but she's fairly relaxed and nice.
- Fling a Light into the Future: As a result of her death, Neti saplings are born from her.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She sacrifices herself to create an opening in the Sith-Imperial fleet during its attack on the Jedi Hidden Temple.
- Last of Her Kind: She's one of the few remaining living members of her species. Though she dies in Legacy, saplings are born from her and spread throughout the Hidden Temple, opening up the possibility that her species may recover one day.
- Living Legend: As Shado explains it, she's one of the few of her kind. Combined with her being a Jedi Master, and bam.
- Non-Mammal Mammaries: Her species are derived from plants... yet she has breasts. Though then again, the Neti are a shapeshifting species, so she might've chosen to have this appearance, and there's nothing saying that the Neti, like some plants, don't have sexual dimorphism either.
- MayflyDecember Romance: T'ra Saa and Tholme lament that due to the former being long-lived, she will outlive the latter. Tholme passes away sometime after the events of Republic.

- Bald of Evil: In contrast to his son, he had a shaved head.
- Death by Origin Story: Died when his son was still young.
- Deceased Parents Are the Best: Averted. Jariah thought that he was a good man murdered by a Jedi, though he later learns that this wasn't the case, because Tuum was protecting people that Zareb was harming.
- The Dragon: Was this to Rav.
Crew of the Grinning Liar
One of the ancient fallen Jedi exiled from the Republic after the Hundred-Year Darkness, and an original-generation Sith Lord. His consciousness survived his body's death preserved within his talisman, and he would seek out any powerful force-sensitive to take as a host.
By the time of the Legacy-era, he's spent the last 160 years locked in a battle of wills with his current host, Celeste Morne.

- Really 700 Years Old: She comes out of stasis a few months after the end of the Clone Wars. She looks exactly the same when she dies, a century-and-a-half later; the talisman having kept her young.
Having passed away from old age, Luke appears to Cade after the Massacre at Ossus in an attempt to guide him back to the light.

- But Thou Must!: Cade's opinion on his insistence that he must become a Jedi and a hero, much to his annoyance.
- The Conscience: Tries to be this for Cade with little success at first.
- Posthumous Character: Luke's only present as a ghost who tries to help his descendants, which makes sense as he would of died of old age long ago.
