""Surely someone else can do this?""
―Derev Niroth

Derev Niroth, formerly known as "Thorin Oakenshield", is a member of Dark Brotherhood. Little is known about his early history, except for what has been salvaged from various reports available to the Brotherhood. His disappearance from the rolls of the Brotherhood caused nearly all data on him to be lost. He currently holds the rank of Sith Battlemaster. He also serves as a Trainer in the Antei Combat Center.

Character History

Derev Niroth was born Thorin Oakenshield to a Human couple in the Corporate Sector. Little is recorded of his birth, however it is believed that his parents were wealthy. Thorin would not be given the opportunity to know his parents or siblings however, they were both killed in what is believed to be a Rebel attack against the convoy his parents were in. Thorin's body was later found by searchers, and all who saw him were amazed he survived his time floating in the rubble, and an explanation for his survival would not be found for many years.

At the age of 8, Thorin became an orphan and lived on the capital world of Corruscant, where he was taken in by a street gang. Survival was often hit and miss, his next meal coming from a merciful citizen, or off the shelves of a distracted merchant. Thorin would quickly rise to lead his street gang, through a brutal mix of diplomacy, capitolism and brute force.

Around the age of 14, Thorin learned he was the legal heir of his parents corporation, which had been run by its board since his parents death. Traveling back to the Corporate Sector, Thorin quickly asserted his power and took over the day to day operations of the business.

Emperor's Hammer

Throughout his life, Thorin felt betrayed by the Rebel Alliance, and ultimately this would lead to his citizenship in the Emperor's Hammer, and far more important, his path down the Dark Side.

Corporate Division

Thorin quickly assessed the wealth at his disposal from his parents life work. Realizing his possibilities, Thorin quickly understood he lacked the allies neccassary to truly compete in this new world he had found. Hearing rumors of a unified group of companies that supported each other whenever possible, Thorin petititioned for and was granted membership in the Corporate Division, and given the appropriate powers of a Chief Executive Officer.

The Corporate Division presented many opportunities to the young Human, and he quickly amassed his power and fortunes, becoming Chairman of the Trade Assembly, granting him carte blance power over all of the corporations of the Corporate Division. Thorin's future looked unstoppable within the Corporate Division, and he became the most decorated officer in the history of the Corporate Division, ascending to the position of Vice President of Operations of the entire Division. Being promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral, Thorin sought to increase his power in the galaxy, and enlisted for service in the TIE Corps, where he was granted a field commission to Major, and assigned commander of the Fighting Ninth.

TIE Corps

Pulling double duty in the Corporate Division and TIE Corps proved to be tiring, but ultimately rewarding. Serving under the command of Commodore BubbaX (Dacien Victae di Plagia), Thorin was subtley instructed in the arts of the force, unknown even to himself at the time. When BubbaX left for parts unknown, the Battlegroup Commander appointed Thorin as Commodore of the ISD Relentless, and with that a Flag Officer of the TIE Corps and the rank of Rear Admiral. Seemingly on a road to unlimited power, the young flag officer finally sensed he possessed a power that was not natural, and realized his mind could affect that of others.

The Beginning of the End

Thorin began to feel he was threatened as the Dark Brotherhood declared war upon the Emperor's Hammer, and although he chose to remain with the Hammer, it was clear his unknown powers had began to attract enemies. On the eve of his appointment as Battlegroup Commander of the TIE Corps Battlegroup, a communique was received on the bridge of the ISD Relentless ordering the immediate arrest and detention of its commodore, Thorin Oakenshield.

Although a few officers attempted to obey the order, it was clear the will of the ship, and it's pilots, the Fightning Ninth (now dubbed Thorin's Fighting Ninth) stood behind their commodore. Having little opportunity to devise a plan, Thorin ordered his crew to set a course for Dark Brotherhood space, and nearly made his objective, in what would have been a strinking blow to the Hammer. The SSSD Sovereign managed to intercept the Relentless just parsecs from Brotherhood space, and with the assistance of Fleet Engineers was able to take remote command of the Relentless.

The Grand Master's Royal Guard boarded the Relentless, and to the humiliation of the Commodore, he was not taken aboard the Sovereign, but was informed he would be tried onboard his own ship. Befitting his status and rank, the Commodore was allowed free reign of the ships unrestricted areas as his trial was prepared. In this time, many senior officers would speak words of consolence to Thorin, and the commander of the Intelligence Division awarded, in secret, one of their highest medals to the Admiral for his secret efforts in the name of the Hammer.

The wrath of Astatine could be avoided by no one, and his trial before the High Court of Inquisitors was a complete farce orchestrated by the Executive Officer of the Emperor's Hammer. Thorin lost his trial by a single vote, and was immediately ordered to depart the Hammer's space under pain of death, should he ever return. Fearing a final unseen act by Astatatine and Omega Squadron, Thorin's Fighting Ninth flew against orders, escorting him out of Hammer Space. Sensor logs later showed Thorin's friend or foe transmitter changing to broadcast that of the Dark Brotherhood, as he made his way for their territory. No commander obeyed the order to delete the records of the disgraced admiral, instead hiding his records, and access codes, deep in the system.

Dark Brotherhood

Many months later, Korras (then Proconsul of Clan Naga Sadow) came across a freighter heavily damaged adrift in space. Much to his surprise, the damage party that boarded found Thorin near death, and Korras quickly realized who it was. Having met many years before, Korras instantly remembered his friend of old, and took him under the protection of the Brotherhood.

Thorin therefore became a member of Clan Naga Sadow, and it's at this time it is believed that he took on the name of Derev Niroth. His initial studies kept him from being an active member, but Derev would later unleash himself and quickly build a name for himself in Clan Naga Sadow.

Clan Naga Sadow

After ascending to Battleteam Leader of the Night Falcons, Derev began to crave power in the Brotherhood, and he quickly increased his rank and powers accordingly. Under the leadership of Koras, Xanos Sadow and Muz Ashen Keibatsu, Derev grew at an incredible speed, attaining Dark Jedi Knight in record time.

His power hungry nature would eventually catch up with him, and his ascension would slow as he was forced to learn from his mistakes. Eventually, he would become Clan Rollmaster, twice, and ultimately, this position would somersault him into the position of Quaestor of House Marka Ragnos.

During his time as Quaestor, Derev would captain a campaign to return to the Phare System, where using his former status in the Hammer, Derev was able to allow the Clan to retrieve certain artifacts.

Much of his records in Clan Naga Sadow have been lost, but it is known he accomplished a great deal as Quaestor, and put House Marka Ragnos on a very successful path. Eventually, however, misgivings with the Consul, Manesh Sadow, would lead Derev to resign in protest, and force him to find a new home in the Brotherhood. After a brief tenure in Clan Tarentum, Derev Niroth was accepted into the ranks of Clan Plagueis, losing his status as a member of Clan Naga Sadow's Inner Order, and apparently giving up his goal of becoming a Son of Sadow.

Clan Plagueis

Now a Sith Battlemaster, Derev made no serious contributions to Clan Plagueis, as he was quickly tapped to become Tribune of the Dark Voice. Derev however began to grow his loyalty to the clan, and formed many friendships he counts to this day. Derev briefly served as Rollmaster of House Exar Kun. Perhaps fate, Derev designed the holonet of Clan Plagueis as a freelance project many years before he joined their ranks. As a point of homage to his beginnings, one of Derev's sabres to this day displays the emblem of Clan Naga Sadow.

Dark Voice Tribune

Grand Master Sarin selected Derev Niroth as Tribune of the Dark Voice, and under a distant but strict guidance, Derev began to reshape the Dark Voice as the Iron Throne desired. Widely hailed as a success, Derev published a total of 4 issues of the Dark Voice. During his time, he formed a well grounded staff, and was able to make remarkable improvements in some areas. While clearly not every change he made was popular, the changes were very well accepted by the younger membership, as well as some members of the Dark Council. However, certain veteran members of the club, and most of Clan Taldryan refused to accept change, and led efforts to smear and overall annoy the Tribune.


After the publication of the 4th Issue, Derev finally grew annoyed with the members who could do nothing except provide criticism, yet had nothing positive to offer the Dark Voice. Reaching a bursting point, the Battlemaster finally threw in the towel, in a fasion quite rare for him. Leaving no announcement, message, or any form of a resignation, Derev Niroth resigned the post of the Dark Voice and removed all records of his membership in the Brotherhood before departing for space unknown.


Little is known of there whereabouts of Derev, but for over 8 months, he was absent from the rolls of the Dark Brotherhood. Some believe he used the time to simply reflect about his experiences, while others believe he furthered his instruction in the Dark Arts. Ultimately, few will ever know what happened to the Battlemaster in his abcense, but it is known he returned to the Dark Brotherhood and sought permission to re-enter from the Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master. His request granted, Derev returned briefly to House Exar Kun, but was unable to find his place in the clan. During his brief stint with Clan Plagueis, Derev was reunited with both of his lost and unknown brothers, Dismal and Mitsuhide. Injured in a piloting mission, blood tests inadvertently discovered that Derev, Dismal and Mitsuhide shared the same parents. After much thinking and consultation, the Battlemaster requested admittance back into the ranks of Clan Naga Sadow. With his request granted by Ashia, Derev returned to the house he grew up in. Feeling disgruntled with the leadership of their clan, Dismal and Mitsuhide took great steps to join the Battlemaster in Clan Naga Sadow, against his will.

Clan Naga Sadow

Shortly after his return to Clan Naga Sadow, Derev expressed interest in the now vacant position of Quaestor in House Marka Ragnos. Derev would eventually be selected as the next Quaestor, marking him the third to serve two tenures as Quaestor of House Marka Ragnos.

His second reign began with sweeping changes designed to increase activity within the house and retain it's identity. The House Marka Ragnos Training Program was instituted once again in his first days in office, as well as the restoration of the original order-specific Battleteams in the House.

Shortly after his tenure as Quaestor began, Derev laid out the foundation of what he hoped would be the restoration of his family's name. Barred from official recognition, Mitsuhide, Dismal, Kalei and Laigerick joined Derev in forming the Ryokou-Amors. To this day, the family seeks recognition within the Brotherhood.

Shortly after becoming Quaestor the second time, Derev would be heavily involved in a staged war-game gone bad. Later given the title of 'The Battle for Inos', Derev played a vital role in succumbing the clan into Civil War.
