A list of characters that don't belong to any of the three main parties. Click here to return to the main characters page.
A Krishari bounty hunter that has been hired by both sides of the war on separate occasions, but mostly by Maesterus. Despite his eccentricities, he's still really good at his job.
- Abusive Parents: His father was a high priest to Xixixix, and during Gahmah's childhood, he brought him right in front of the creature itself to "enlighten" him, making him the deranged mercenary we know now. Whether this abuse was intentional on the father's part or not remains unknown, as Xixixix ate him later on.
- Alien Hair: Krishari have dreadlock-like tendrils that according to supplementary material, can be styled like hair, but unlike mammalian hair, is still alive and can have their length controlled by cauterizing the cut tips.
- Always Someone Better: He's the main bounty hunter character for Paranormalitis and the main character of his own sidestory, but much to his dismay, he lives in the same time period as Boba Fett.
- Amusing Injuries: He receives a lot of otherwise-fatal or untreatable injuries, only to regenerate later. His fight with Gestroma on Ockla Prime results in him having multiple hands scattered all over the cathedral floor.
- Attention Whore: According to his profile, he sometimes tries to get Boba Fett's attention by insulting him.
- Badass Normal: Only on the merit of not using a lightsaber. Even then, he's barely trained in the Force and has only been seen using it for the most mundane purposes.
- Berserk Button / Hair-Trigger Temper: Don't ever assume he's been hired by a criminal organization. Grein even outright says word-for-word that he's got a Hair-Trigger Temper.
- Beware the Silly Ones: With all things he does and accidents that happen to him, he doesn't seem like he'd make a professional bounty hunter, but he's actually one of the best in the field.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: He's got two wrist gauntlet blades.
- Boom, Headshot!: He finishes off a few enemies this way, namely Maushh, two Valkoran troopers, Armogeist (doesn't kill him), and Gestroma.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: His wackiness doesn't make him any less effective at his job. This is also deconstructed in Odd Partnerships, as very few people have been willing to hire him in the early days of his bounty hunting career because of his quirks, and these traits don't spell "professional" to most people.
- Cerebus Retcon: Originally, Gahmah's eccentric personality and fourth-wall awareness was the result of him being on spice, but it was written all as speculation in-story. Come Episode II, it is revealed that this is really the result of being exposed up-close to a madness-inducing Eldritch Abomination as a child.
- Charged Attack: His pistols have this function.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Of all the bounty hunters that signed up for the Menbar Mun contract, he is by far the most out there, much to the chagrin of the rest of them. He is even in contact with some "creators". He's also implied to be a spice addict. However, the Krishari as a whole are this trope, because Xixixix has been stunting the species' mental growth for thousands of years. Gahmah's just been affected more drastically because he was up close to Mad God as a child.
- Combat Pragmatist: In battle, he'll sometimes shoot his enemies in specific spot to cripple them or drag out the fight to tire them out. He's also not above exaggerating his own insanity beforehand to give a false sense of character to his enemies.
- Cool Helmet: He certainly thinks so, as he wears it almost all the time (and to protect his head).
- Cool Ship: The Vriknash.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Gahmah Raan is kind of loopy, makes plenty of decisions that would be suicidal if not for his regeneration, and is an untrained Force user. He's also a competent a bounty hunter and fighter and has earned the respect of Maesterus. On the other hand, it's implied that some of his lunacy is deliberately exaggerated to keep his enemies off guard.
- Deadpan Snarker: He just can't resist belittling others whether they are his enemies or allies.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He killed Xixixix by blowing it up from the inside after getting Eaten Alive.
- Everyone Has Standards: He is opposed to working for criminal groups like the Hutts because he sees their jobs as nothing more than glorified leg-breaking. He also despises Gestroma.
- Eye Scream: According to his profile, he got one of his eyes eaten by Ewoks while it was still connected to his brain.
- Fantastic Racism: Initially has some resentment towards Mandalorians, as one of his few off-world hunting partners (and his second soul mate), Violo Jod, was a (implied) Martial Pacifist Mandalorian who was killed for his philosophies, with Gahmah believing they hired Gestroma because they were a bunch of pretentious cultural fanatics (and he also has bad experience with religious groups back on Krishar as that lead to his insanity). He seemingly gets out of it once Gestroma confirms that the Mandalorians in general still respected Violo despite disagreeing with him and that it was actually Masochus who ordered his death.
- Fourth-Wall Observer: He's only aware of these "creators" and the time that passes in real life between chapter production, but doesn't understand the context behind the wall. Initially implied to be spice-induced hallucinations, but in reality, it's actually due to being directly exposed to Xixixix as a child.
- The Gadfly: He's usually mocking his allies and his enemies alike either because he likes to mess with them or to make them fight more sloppily (this is especially effective against Force users).
- Guns Akimbo: His favored fighting style.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: Was temporarily cut in half by Armogeist. Temporary because he grew his lower half back later.
- Hand Cannon: His blaster pistols are capable of making people's heads explode when fully charged.
- Happily Married: He's married to a huntress named Nazeen on Krishar. In addition to her, he was also married to Violo Jod some time after Odd Parntnerships.
- Healing Factor: He's capable of regenerating lost body parts. If cauterized, he'll sometimes cut off the cauterization.
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Humorously deconstructed and defied when he's playing the hero. Every time his helmet comes off, he always receives a facial injury that would be permanent for non-Krishari, so he refuses to take it off even when it's seemingly safe (at least as far as what is seen).
- Heroic Comedic Sociopath: When he's hired by the good guys, he's still not above cracking jokes when killing people.
- Hidden Depths: Behind that insane persona, Gahmah actually desires to help his people get off his homeworld, and the future generations away from influence of the local Mad God. He is also capable of understanding psychological imbalance and knowing the desire for revenge.
- Hitman with a Heart: Deconstructed in Odd Partnerships. Bounty hunting jobs in the Star Wars universe are rarely moral/heroic and high-paying at the same time, and as such, between that and Gahmah's eccentric behavior, he and Violo are far from making enough money to reach Gahmah's financial goal of getting the rest of the Krishari into the space age.
- Iron Butt Monkey: He's suffered many injuries in his career that would have killed him a hundred times had it not been for his Healing Factor.
- Inept Mage: Gahmah is Force-sensitive, but he has so very little control over his power (and even sensing things is one-off), a five-year old Jedi youngling could handle it better than he could. In Odd Partnerships, he somehow accidentally mind-tricked a thug into jumping to his death.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his violent tendencies, he's willing to make up for any mistakes on his part and help Zolph out in coping with his mental issues.
- Karma Houdini Warranty: After suffering no retribution for his actions in Episode I, Zolph breaks his nose after meeting up with him again at least a year later in Episode II. But like losing his arms in Episode I, he can still regenerate his nose.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: He's evenly matched when he duels Zolph and decides to leave when they are both fatigued, stating that the fight has gotten them nowhere.
- Large Ham: Not only is he incredibly talkative, he's also really loud.
- Leeroy Jenkins: His attack plan against Xixixix simply amounts to "shoot it until it's dead". It doesn't go well and he gets Eaten Alive.
- Lizard Folk: More accurately, a repto-mammal.
- Major Injury Underreaction: His reactions are very subdued when he gets his arms cut/torn off, his face is burned, is cut in half, digested alive by Xixixix and zapped by Force lightning. Partly justified to due to his regenerative abilities and the latter because his homeworld is littered with lightning-shooting trees.
- Minor Injury Overreaction: Compared to the above injuries listed in Major Injury Underreaction, he acts like a wimp when Zolph breaks his nose.
- Mundane Utility: Aside from using it as a radar, that's all he seems to ever use the Force for. This is because he's woefully undertrained in its use and the times he does use it are random bursts.
- Noodle Incident: His whole life off Krishar has been filled with these.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Downplayed. Between asking questions like "Why don't you send your own minions after him?" or questions that could end a contract prematurely, he still managed to get Menbar and lure Zolph to Kratzar. It's implied for how genuinely loony he can most of the time, he's capable of exaggerating it to provide his enemies a false sense of advantage. This is lampshaded by Grein to Masochus to explain how he's survived so long despite his appearance.
- Only Sane Man: Played with in Ep.1 Ch.9. He's outright kooky compared to the other hunters (and almost everyone in the galaxy, period), but he's the only one that realizes that Zolph needs to be captured alive. He's also pretty sane compared to most of his species. For instance, he has to fire a warning shot at his people not to eat offworlders.
- Psycho for Hire: Defied, as despite his insanity, he does not use bounty hunting as an excuse for killing people (despite getting some thrills out of it) and usually gets his targets alive. In fact, he despises Gestroma for being one of these.
- Psychopathic Manchild: He has been known to shoot at people (either to incapacitate or fire warning shots) just for ignoring him when he's trying to talk to them. He also threatened Zolph into drinking his homemade tea and naming his own X-Wing.
- Punch-Clock Villain / Punch-Clock Hero: He's still a mercenary and doesn't particularly harbor any ill-will towards Zolph. He's also worked for the Alliance during the Vong War. Lampshaded in Episode II.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He goes on one against Masochus after Gestroma reveals with his dying breath that he hired him to kill Violo Jod. However, since this is revealed so late, he's unable to get his revenge on Masochus before Grein and Armogeist kill him.
- Sad Clown: He may not seem that way at first given the way acts most of the time, but not only has he had a very troubling childhood (father was a cult leader who exposed him to a Mad God) and he has an internal desire for revenge against whoever ordered Violo Jod's death. He's also frustrated with himself for being unable to save Maesterus when Valkor impales him on display in the capital of Ockla Prime due to losing his sniper rifle at some point.
- Serious Business: He treats social customs as this, to the point that he violently threatens people if they dare break away from them. The worst he's seen to have done is shoot Zolph in the legs.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Became more prominent in Episode II, but given it's still in the Star Wars universe, there are limits on what he can say.
- Tear Off Your Face: Gahmah's had this happen to him at least three times. One time, he had his face bitten off by an angry Karkarodon. Another time, he casually tore it off himself after it was scarred by blaster fire. The third time, he had it partially digested while inside Xixixix's stomach.
- Too Dumb to Live: He's shown several instances of this throughout his adventures. One time, he flirted with Rakan the Devourer - a cannibalistic Karkarodon Serial Killer - after drinking too much, resulting in him getting his face bitten off. This is then subverted by the fact that while any other person would have died from such an injury, Gahmah can regenerate lost tissue quickly.
- Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: According to Roteka in Odd Partnerships, a Dark Jedi once tried to probe his mind, but ended up being turned into a catatonic vegetable from seeing Gahmah's quirk.
Gestroma (Project GESTROMA)
A bounty hunter of an unknown species and a rogue Imperial super soldier the Valkoran Empire hired after Krantisi. Known for rarely taking targets alive.
- An Arm and a Leg: Zolph cuts off his left hand in his first appearance. He simply reattaches it later.
- Ax-Crazy: Although it's suggested he wasn't always like this and the Galactic Empire's experiments made him this way.
- Badass Biker: He rides around Taris on a swoop bike until it gets destroyed.
- Bad Boss: Inverted. He's abusive to the minions of the people who hired him.
- Belly Mouth: It's unknown if he always had it or if it was a mutation.
- BFG: His weapon of choice is an assault cannon. He also uses a concussion rifle, a weapon that fires a burst of compressed air that explodes once the burst hits something.
- Big Bad Wannabe: He was a Forceless Herald, making him a leader of his own Collective, much like Valkor. However, after his lab is destroyed, Valkor shows up to assimilate him.
- Body Horror: In addition to performing this on the people he's been capturing, he's also both a mutant and a Forceless Herald. According to him and what his other experiments suggest, his original form looked nothing like he does now.
- Demonic Possession: When Valkor assimilates him into his Collective, he gets fully taken over.
- The Dreaded: Even Jedi have learned to be wary of him.
- The Faceless: His helmet includes a face-wide polarized visor. Underneath are three eyes taking up almost his entire face.
- Fantastic Racism: Towards humans of all species because the Galactic Empire, which was a very humanocentric government, mutated him and destroyed his homeworld. This also extends to near-human species and half-humans.
- Faux Affably Evil: He commends Zolph for being the first to survive, but he promises to mount his head on his wall next time they meet. He's also a sadistic madman with plans to purge the galaxy of humans. However, he has a moment of genuine affability when Gahmah Raan kills him, admits him to be a Worthy Opponent and tells him who hired him to kill Violo Jod.
- For the Evulz: Why he decided to take a Skakoan Commando hostage and use him as a bomb against Zolph instead of just using a thermal detonator.
- Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: The Empire - whose ranks were predominantly made up of humans - was responsible for destroying his home and family, mutating him and making him insane in the process. However, as Zolph and Hiriss point out, this doesn't absolve him of the fact that he attempted genocide on an entire species because of the actions of one group of them and was willing to perform the same experiments he went through on them, especially when his grudge has outlived the Empire and other people hurt by the Empire didn't go to the same extremes.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: He started as the child of two inmates on Despayre, became an Imperial lab rat for a mutant super-soldier program, was injected with a Forceless symbiote, massacred the lab staff and then became a bounty hunter building up a plan to wipe out all humans.
- Graceful Loser: When he's dying at Gahmah Raan's hands, he acknowledges him as an intelligent being despite his eccentricities and tells him that Masochus hired him to kill Violo.
- He Who Fights Monsters: He has an extreme hatred of humans because of what the Empire - a predominantly humanocentric regime that frequently persecuted non-humans - did to him and his family. While there are some Rebels that went to great extremes for revenge against the Empire, Gestroma's hatred extended to an entire species (as well as species close to being human and even individuals with human ancestry), and one that made up the majority of the galactic population (never mind that a lot of Rebels were human too). And worse, his hatred of humans outlived the Empire, and he was willing to subject some of them to the same horrific experiments that the Empire subjected him to.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: He's using his career as a bounty hunter as a coverup and a way to fund his grand human extermination plan.
- Hijacked by Ganon: Subverted. He was his own master at first, but once his base was destroyed by Zolph and Hiriss, Valkor showed up to assimilate him into his Forceless Collective, turning him into one of his minions.
- Humanoid Abomination: In addition to being an Imperial lab mutant, he's also a Forceless Herald.
- Hypocrite: He was mutated by the Empire when he was younger and seeks revenge against the human race for doing that to him. So how does he go about plans? By mutating some of the people he's been kidnapping.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gahmah Raan kills him by stabbing him through the chest with his Blade Below the Shoulder before shooting him in the head.
- Knight Templar: His grand plans involve wiping out all humans for the atrocities of only one group of them.
- Large and in Charge: He's been described as pretty big.
- Mad Scientist: When you start mutating people into bio-weapons, you definitely qualify.
- Overly Long Tongue: In his stomach of all places.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Despite being a psychopath who enjoys his work very much, even Gahmah Raan admits that he was just a hired gun used to kill Violo Jod and does not take his desire for revenge out on him.
- Psycho for Hire: Despite his job being a cover-up for his real goals, he admits that he does it to "blow off steam".
- Smug Snake: Gestroma, did you really think you would be able to assimilate Emperor Valkor?
- Super Soldier: He was intended to be one for the Galactic Empire. Unfortunately, a lot of mutagens, the destruction of his home and family and being empowered by a Forceless symbiote drove him over the edge and he went rogue.
- Walking Spoiler: Everything in regards to his true goals and backstory.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The only reason he's the violent sociopath he is by the time he's introduced is because he was born in an Imperial penal colony. The Empire then separated him from his parents when he was young, subjected him to various Body Horror that also made him Ax-Crazy and destroyed his homeworld (along with his parents) with the Death Star.
A Skakoan bounty hunter and former Skakoan Commando hired by Maesterus to capture Menbar Mun.
- Berserk Button: He really dislikes being accused of being a Dirty Coward for his hunting tactics (which amounts to just getting his prey to back down due to the fact that breaching his suit would get both of them killed.)
- Combat Pragmatist: He thinks threatening people with his own explosive anatomy qualifies as this.
- Did Not Think This Through: His plan of getting prey and competing hunters to back down by exploiting his explosive biology has some serious holes in it, as demonstrated by the circumstances of his death. Not only does Gahmah Raan simply shoot him from outside the blast radius, Zolph uses the Force to contain the explosion within Pintor's personal space.
- Dirty Coward: Zolph Vaelor and Gahmah Raan accuse him of being one due to the fact that he tends to point his literally explosive nature to get his prey to back down. Of course, he really doesn't like it when they accuse him of being one.
- Explosive Decompression: Due to how Skakoan biology works, he will explode violently (and lethally to those around him) if his pressure suit is breached while away from his homeworld (which has both a high-pressure atmosphere and a lot of methane in said atmosphere). When Gahmah Raan snipes him, Zolph has to use the Force to contain the explosion.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: According to his brief profile in the TFN forums' OC index, the rest of the Skakoan Commandos weren't very fond of him due to his Dirty Coward habits.
- Little Green Man in a Can: He wears a pressure suit because his species comes from a planet with a high-pressure atmosphere.
- Smug Snake: He really thinks his usual living bomb threat works even on Jedi. It doesn't work.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He's only around for two scenes before being killed by Gahmah Raan. However, Episode II (almost a year after his death) posthumously reveals that he was once a Skakoan Commando.
An Ubese bounty hunter hired by Maesterus along with several others during the Menbar Mun hunt.
- Badass Normal: Of all the bounty hunters in "Hunters", he came the closest to killing Zolph, and would have succeeded had Gahmah Raan not come in at the last second.
- Blade on a Stick: His vibro-ax.
- Cold Sniper: He introduces himself to Zolph by trying to snipe him with a tranquilizer.
- Combat Pragmatist: He's willing to use tranquilizers in a swordfight to cripple his prey, as well as fire his gun in the middle of said swordfight.
- Flat Character: Compared to the other named bounty hunters introduced in "Hunters", he has very few defining character traits beyond his cold pragmatism.
- Near-Villain Victory: He would have successfully killed Zolph had Gahmah not blown his head to pieces at the last second.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Same with Bom Pintor, he's around for only two scenes before being killed, and he gets even less characterization.
- Your Head Asplode: His death at the hands of Gahmah Raan.
Va'Za the Hutt
A crime lord operating on Tatooine, whose activity brought an almost totalitarian crime rate to the planet. He was being funded by the Valkoran to do distract them from their true operations on the planet.
- Accidental Murder: Zolph disemboweled Va'Za to rescue a slave girl he had just swallowed whole. Unexpectedly to Zolph, he dies from the injury off-screen because he was too fat to haul to hospital.
- Asshole Victim: He is accidentally killed by Zolph when the latter cuts his stomach open to save a slave girl he had recently swallowed whole.
- Blatant Lies: No, Va'Za did not eat his slave girl between his first and second meeting with Zolph despite trying to do so during the first. He freed her! Sure enough, Zolph doesn't buy it.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: He gets disemboweled by Zolph after he just ate his slave girl and dies off-screen moments later.
- Dirty Coward: He pretty much spilled his guts after Zolph threatened to cut his stomach open and right after Zolph barges into his palace the second time.
- Fat Bastard: The standard for Hutts.
- I'm a Humanitarian: He's known for swallowing his slave girls whole. This eventually gets him killed.
- Karmic Death: Zolph cuts his stomach open after he catches him eating his slave girl again. Unexpectedly to Zolph, he dies from that injury.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He's actually pretty small-time for a Hutt. He's only got the money to fund his operations because the Valkoran are paying him to distract them. He also got the intel about Terraris's temple from Girdretto, and he's easily coerced into spilling his guts.
- Smug Snake: He's very full of himself when Zolph first meets him. However, it doesn't take much from Zolph to make him drop his demeanor.
- Too Dumb to Live: Zolph wasn't kidding when he said he would 'put [him] on a permanent diet'. The only excuse he would have is that he probably wasn't expecting Zolph to come back.
A Toydarian kingpin on Sleheyron. Zolph sought him after interrogating Va'Za the Hutt.
- Asshole Victim: He gets possessed by Black Matter and then impaled by Grein.
- Back from the Dead: He is resurrected and brainwashed as a Forceless cultist in Episode III.
- Came Back Wrong: His resurrection came with him being in a body made purely from Black Matter, one that doesn't even resemble a Toydarian.
- Deadpan Snarker: To Zolph's attempt to Mind Trick him.Girdretto: "I'm assuming Va'Za didn't tell you what species I am."
- Demonic Possession: by Forceless.
- Dirty Coward: His first response to the Forceless invasion is to flee. He doesn't get very far.
- Eyepatch of Power: He wears one to hide a missing eye.
- Fat Bastard: Although, that's actually buoyant gas in his gut. And he's surprisingly thin for a Toydarian and a crime lord.
- Irony: He chides his late parnter, Va'Za for spilling the beans on providing the source of the Terraris temple's location. In Episode III's prologue, he accidentally spills out the existence of Yalbdalaoth, the source symbiote of the Forceless Collective and its true leader as opposed to Valkor, to Dynn Manthis, something the Collective did not want getting out to those not loyal to them. This ends up getting Girdretto another trip into the Pool of Souls.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: His inability to keep his mouth shut about Yalbdalaoth's existence to Dynn Manthis before they could completely brainwash her ended up giving her a hint as to not only the true origins of this particular Forceless Collective, but a potential step to truly defeating them.
- No-Sell: He's a Toydarian. Mind Tricks don't work on him.
- Sinister Schnoz: As natural for the villainous members of his species.
- Smug Snake: He didn't really think Zolph would actually get in his estate. Guess what he failed to predict.
- Winged Humanoid: As usual with Toydarians.
Vil Rakan "The Devourer"
A Karkarodon serial killer dwelling in the Coruscant underworld, he gets his name from his habit of devouring the people he kills.
- Asshole Victim: He is incinerated by Arcidus when he tries to eat Zolph. A homeless Gotal uses his smoldering ashes to keep warm shortly after.
- Bullying a Dragon: Zolph, being a Jedi, lampshades this trope to Rakan, calling him an idiot for daring to try to pick a fight with him in a back-alley.
- I'm a Humanitarian: He gets his name from eating sentient beings. Even though these beings aren't usually other Karkarodons, one sentient being eating another is considered cannibalism in a civilized society inhabited by multiple species.
- Insane Troll Logic: He thinks that by eating a Jedi and their midi-chlorians (ignoring that all life-forms have them), he will become a Force user himself. Zolph is annoyed by this misconception to say the least.
- Killed Mid-Sentence: Arcidus abruptly burns him to ashes while proclaiming he's going to enjoy killing Zolph.
- Kill It with Fire: Courtesy of Arcidus.
- My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Subverted. When a paragraph mentions that Karkarodon criminals suffer a negative stereotype of being cannibals, it bluntly mentions afterward that Rakan only serves to perpetuate that stereotype.
- Noodle Incident: Gahmah Raan once ran into him on Ord Mantell. Gahmah tried to flirt with Rakan while drunk, and this resulted in Gahmah (temporarily) getting his face bitten off and Rakan getting his tongue torn out (because when kissing mouth-to-mouth, Krishari normally assume that the person that they are kissing can regenerate too). He is not thrilled to learn from Zolph that Gahmah is still alive after that.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: If the Noodle Incident with Gahmah Raan above and Rakan feeling humiliated by it is anything to go by, it's implied he may be homophobic. Although in Rakan's defense, Gahmah shouldn't have been trying to casually flirt with a total stranger that also happened to be a vicious shark person.
- Shark Man: Comes with being a Karkarodon.
- Tongue Trauma: He got his tongue bitten off by Gahmah Raan when he tried to "kiss" the latter for flirting with him. He replaced it with a prosthetic afterward.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He exists only to provide a minor obstacle for Zolph, a little bit of backstory for Gahmah Raan and get killed by Arcidus.
A deceased Sith Lord from ancient times entombed in a remote location on Korriban/Moraband away from the Valley of the Dark Lords. He's apparently been experimenting with Forceless.
- A God Am I: He thinks of himself that way once he's learned how to create Forceless.
- The Exile: A self-imposed one
- Large Ham: In true Sith fasion. Lampshaded by Zolph.Zolph Vaelor: "But really, are drama classes a requirement in Sith studies?"
- Mind Rape: He pulls this on Zolph when he rejects his offer of power. How? He arouses his subconsciously suicidal thoughts in the form of the mutated Dynn Manthis.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: When you learn he's been creating Forceless and he Mind Rapes Zolph, he doesn't seem so pathetic then.
- Posthumous Character: He is a ghost when he meets Zolph and Grein.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: He is a member of the Sith species, which look like red-skinned humans with protrusions on their faces.
Apparition Dynn Manthis
A product of Zolph's depression following the death of Dynn Manthis, she is out to haunt him and kill him.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: When she first appears in the cave on Dagobah, she takes on Dynn's normal form. Even Zolph knows this is too good to be true.
- Body Horror: She's based on Dynn's grotesque Forceless-possessed form form the time of her death.
- Fan Disservice: What can we say? It's an OOC apparition of Zolph's love interest whose appearance is based on one of the worst moments in both Zolph's and the real Dynn's lives (she's naked, but also horrifically mutated and with the real Dynn, she was under a lot of psychological pain due to Forceless possession). And she's a product of Zolph's suicidal thoughts.
- Faux Affably Evil: She acts very innocent even after she reveals her true colors, but she's just trying to lure Zolph into a false sense of security.
- Implacable Woman: No matter what Zolph does (including shooting her head off), he can't seem to get rid of her without someone knocking him unconscious. She also tends to appear right behind Zolph even when he's managed to get away from her. This is because she'll be around as long as Zolph wants her to be around.
- Nightmare Face: Her face and her torso.
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: She is nothing like the real Dynn Manthis, to the point that she got a separate character entry from her.
- Vagina Dentata: The mouth on her stomach invokes this.
- Walking Spoiler: It's impossible to talk about her without bringing up Dynn's death.
- Yandere: She really shows this when Zolph repeatedly tries to ignore or reject her.
- Your Mind Makes It Real: She's only visible and tangible to Zolph because of his internal depression and him coming to places strong in the Dark Side. And she's real enough to possibly to kill him.
A regiment of exceptionally courageous Skakoans that fought for the Rebel Alliance in the Galactic Civil War. After the war, some of them became freelance mercenaries, with some of them now working for the Valkoran Empire.
- Artificial Limbs: Artwork for the Commandos shows them piloting a pair of robotic legs, as by Matt's head-canon, Skakoans are not naturally bipedal. This artistic decision is based on an observation of Wat Tambor's character models in Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars not having legs, and no Skakoans in Canon and Legends have had parts of their body shown below the waist (the closest example to a leg on a Skakoan being shown was Kul Teska in The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes video game, who seemed to have a piece of a leg covered by clothing despite being mostly cybernetic).
- Badass Normal: This is compared to most Skakoans, who wouldn't dare get in a fight since they would risk exploding from slight damage to their suits.
- Explosive Decompression: They are from a planet with a high-pressure atmosphere and methane and need pressure suits, otherwise this will happen.
- Made of Explodium: Due to the methane in the suit and their bodies, the explosions aren't just lethal to them.
- My Species Doth Protest Too Much: They are more willing to fight and die for a cause than normal for Skakoans, who would usually stay out of a fight rather than risk having their pressure suits breached. However, they also point out they are mostly mercenaries, and some of the ones that carry out unnecessary suicide bombings are a bit more unhinged.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Most of the commandos seen in the story are mercenaries working with the Valkoran. After the annihilation of Christophsis and the Valkoran split into two factions, the commandos sided with the Valkoran Separatists led by Maesterus, as what Emperor Valkor did on Christophsis reminded them too much of what the Galactic Empire did with their ancestors.
- Reality Ensues: Throughout their appearances in Episode II, the Commandos' hat seems to be suicide bomber. Once Zolph has a safe conversation with a Commando, he's reminded that they are mercenaries first, and only an unhinged minority of Commandos are willing to blow themselves up on a dime. What sane person would accept money for being a suicide bomber if they can't use it afterward?
- Suicide Attack: Unlike most Skakoans, they are willing to breach their own suits and blow themselves up if it accomplishes something. However, they really don't like it when people like The Empire or Gestroma use them as bombs against their own will.
A cult of Force-disconnected Miraluka obsessed with purging the galaxy of Force Sensitives. They also formed an alliance with the Valkoran.
- Anti-Villain: Following their betrayal against the Valkoran, they become this before pulling a full HeelFace Turn.
- The Atoner: Following the organization as a whole becoming more connected to the Force, their enclave getting destroyed and their power dwindling, they side with the Seferite Order when the Valkoran Empire fractures in return for Maesterus's forces giving them a chance to escape.
- Better to Die than Be Killed: Following the loss of their enclave on Alpheridies, a good number of the surviving warriors took their own lives rather than be eaten by Valkor like their leader. Some others retreated and later went on to join the Valkoran Separatists after the annihilation of Christophis.
- Brought Down to Badass: From a genetic standpoint. Most Miraluka are Force-sensitive and call upon it to see for them. The Kur'Ada aren't born with as natural an awareness of the Force and thus are truly blind and must rely on cybernetic optical implants. This gets inverted later, as they learn to reconnect with the Force.
- Electronic Eye: A disturbingly-placed one on each warrior since Miraluka don't have eyes in the first place.
- Elite Mooks: The Kur'Ada elite warriors are distinguished by wearing black armor.
- Enemy Mine:
- Defied in "The Return". Even after turning on the Valkoran, they are still fighting against the Galactic Alliance.
- Played straight after the massacre of Christophsis. The Kur'Ada remnants side with the Valkoran Separatists led by Maesterus in return for sparing them during the attack on Alpheridies. By extension, this also leads to them working with the Alliance and Jedi Order.
- Eye Scream: Miraluka never had eyes begin, so their implants are basically dug into their vestigial eye sockets and plugged into their brains. A passage in "Resolve" lampshades that their appearance without their masks is best left undescribed.
- Fantastic Racism: As a result of their ancestors being persecuted by the other Miraluka (who are all otherwise Force-sensitive) in the species' early history, they perceive all Force users as religious zealots who are drunk with power and need to be eliminated. They give up on it after they discover their hidden potential and acknowledge their hypocrisy.
- Heel Realization: After discovering their long-buried Force-connection, the Equalists start to realize their crusade against the Force was pointless and how evil Valkor really is. Even though they are still enemies with the Galactic Alliance and Jedi Order at first, they eventually come around and fight with them.
- He Who Fights Monsters: The Kur'Ada were originally founded under the principal of combating the persecution of non-Force-sensitive Miraluka. As the Miraluka as a species entered galactic society and became more progressive, and the Kur'Ada learned about other Force users developing a sense of superiority over others, they ended up becoming more obsessed with destroying Force users rather than advocating for non-Force users, making them no better than the zealots they claim to be combating. It takes being near a Forceless-possessed creature and awakening the Force within them to realize where they went wrong.
- Human Alien: Miraluka are essentially humans born without eyes, but are more likely to be Force-sensitive to make up for it.
- Hypocrite: They despise Force users with a passion, but they've decided to ally with the Valkoran, whose leadership is made of Force users, to their own ends. Not to mention all life is connected to the Force, even if they aren't naturally aware of its presence. This is lampshaded by Zolph, Hiriss and Arcidus.
- Their leader, Mursama, becomes aware of this when she becomes aware of the Force and starts training other warriors to use it. She even acknowledges their hypocrisy.
- Karma Houdini Warranty: Played with. After they get a better understanding of the Force and start becoming aware of their hypocrisy, their base is immediately attacked by the Valkoran Empire and their leader is eaten by Valkor. The Kur'Ada Equalists as an organization are crippled, but the survivors - who also happen to be some of the reformists - ally with the Seferite Order when the Valkoran Empire splits. Even then, it's implied they're still going to be forced to make reparations to the galaxy alongside the Seferites for war crimes in their service to the Valkoran Empire.
- Katanas Are Just Better: The warriors typically prefer to use swords.
- Knight Templar: Until their philosophical reform, they were generally very militant in their hatred of Force users.
- Not Always Chaotic Evil: Even though the organization was founded on a philosophy of bigotry, its modern day members are clearly more open-minded and willing to have second thoughts about their ideology.
- Ninja: They have vibes of this.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Human Alien cyborg ninjas.
- Revenge: One of the reasons they side with Maesterus after the Valkoran Empire's fracturing is that they want to avenge the death (sort of) of their leader, Mursama. With them learning to connect to the Force, Zolph notes that this desire for revenge could prove problematic in the long run.
- Sins of the Father: Even though the rest of the Miraluka have long since become more tolerant of non-Force Sensitives, the Kur'Ada have a grudge against the Force because of their ancestors' actions.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Their hatred for Force users stems from their ancestors' persecution by the other Miraluka for not being as well-adapted as them, and hearing about Jedi and Sith getting drunk with power. Even they are right to some degree about the Jedi getting too dogmatic about their interpretation of the Force and the Sith being outright evil, the problem is the Kur'Ada view all Force users equally.
Leader of the Kur'Ada Equalists around the start of the Valkoran War.
- An Arm and a Leg: Gets both of her arms cut off in her duel with Arcidus.
- And I Must Scream: Getting eaten by Valkor qualifies as this. For more details, she is trapped in a state between life and death as a disembodied eye crystal among an endless expanse of more of them. These eye crystals can only communicate by emitting static sounds that none of them can understand, and they can't tune each other out. However, only Mursama is aware of this due to her Force sensitivity and refuses to give in to despair.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Not only is she the leader of the Kur'Ada, but she's also the most skilled warrior among them
- Dark Action Girl: She is this initially due to being the leader of a group of extremists.
- Dual Wielding: She prefers to wield two vibroswords.
- Eaten Alive: By Valkor. It isn't pretty.
- Empowered Badass Normal: She eventually learned how to connect with the Force, and likewise taught several other Kur'Ada warriors to use it.
- Eye Scream: She destroyed her own photoreceptor after she learned how to connect with the Force and now uses it to see instead.
- HeelFace Door-Slam: Subverted. As she and the rest of her organization goes through a Heel Realization in regards to their crusade against Force users and their alliance with the Valkoran Empire, she is eaten by Valkor not long after. That said, the survivors of her organization have adopted her as a martyr after they've made a full HeelFace Turn.
- Hypocrisy Nod: She became aware of the hypocrisy in the Kur'Ada cause after she learned to connect with the Force and teach it to some of her followers, and acknowledges the hypocrisy to Arcidus after he discovers her training other Kur'Ada warriors when their original goal was to purge the galaxy of Force-sensitives.
- Oh, Crap!: She has this reaction when Emperor Valkor shows up in her palace.
