Biography

Before Darkness

Not much is known about Nihlus Vexrii's time before the Brotherhood. He was born on his species homeworld Umbara just prior to the destruction of the DS-2 Battle Station and raised there by an Imperial science officer - a weapons developer in service to Umbaran-Imperial technical cooperation initiative. His mother died during childbirth, leaving him to be raised in a strict doctrine by his father Xil, who believed that one day a new Empire would emerge.

Prior to leaving Umbara, Nihlus spent time as a soldier with the Umbaran military. There, he received training on anti-Jedi tactics and slugthrower weapons. Vexrii served with the Umbaran military for only a few missions - receiving anti-Jedi and slugthrower training - before being offered a chance by an agent of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood to join the powerful organization.

Incursion

Antei's moon, Lyspair

Vexrii enlisted in the Brotherhood. Following tradition at the time, he was dropped off via shuttle on the surface of Lyspair and made the journey to the Shadow Academy. The Test of Lore was administered and passed, with Nihlus being indoctrinated into the Brotherhood as a Journeyman. All of his possessions were surrendered to the coffers of the Dark Brotherhood and started his new career with nothing - the bottom of the food chain. Returning to Taldryan led the Umbaran to attend and graduate the Taldryan Military's training institute on Karufr. Vexrii transfered to the Dark Prophet as part of one of her starfighter wings while he continued his studies. Immediately upon joining the crew of the vessel they attended a military ceremony meant to honour the winners of the recent Rite of Supremacy - Second Darkness.

Forces from several of the Brotherhood's clan's attended the awards ceremony meant to celebrate the three victors, held just outside The Shroud. As the festivities were underway and recognition being given by the Sith, an alien race devoid of the Force commanding a fleet more than twice the size of the present forces launched an all out assault on the Brotherhood vessels. With this the Eighth Great Jedi War begun, the Dark Prophet sacrificing herself as a retreat order into The Shroud was given by the leadership.

Nihlus was one of several pilots able to successfully launch their craft before the Victory-class Star Destroyer suffered catastrophic hull failure and vented her innards into space, and successfully made a return to the Venator-class Star Destroyer Katarn which itself had suffered incredible damage and had almost failed to make the retreat. During the trip back to Antei the Umbaran served as an engineer aboard the limping cruiser until it was able to regroup with other forces. Later on, the Dark Lord of the Sith Aristan Dantes would call for a complete retreat from Antei, leading a full abandonment of the planet and the Shadow Academy on it's moon.

During the aftermath of the assault and loss of the Brotherhood center of power, Nihlus returned with his fellow Dark Jedi back to the Kr'Tal System. A short time after the Umbaran pilot returned the Cotelin-class Star Destroyer Justice was commissioned by Taldryan's leadership. Vexrii's next posting would be the Justice, his potential as a pilot not un-noticed.

Karufr, home of Clan Taldryan

Nihlus spent quite some time aboard the Cotelin-class destroyer, branching out slowly as a Dark Jedi and improving his abilities with practice. He occasionally assisted the engineers by lending an extra hand on repairs and maintenance when he could spare the time. A large portion of his time however was spent inside the flight simulators, practicing his skills in an effort to perfect them. The Umbaran quickly became known as a reputable squadron mate and enjoyed a rather relaxed position aboard the cruiser even as Operation: Swift Justice was underway.

Unification

GJW: Unification going-ons, loss of upper part of torso and arm from starfighter crash, repaired with cybernetics.

Thirst for Knowledge

Goes hunting for some knowledge/artifacts/whatever, meets Nokzeim and bests him in combat - recruiting him in the process. The two continue the knowledge quest until Nihlus returns to the DB to lead House Ektrosis

Unforgettable Mistake

Has a terrible training accident during lightsaber sparring, lower jaw severed by lightsaber with damage to vocal cords and throat. Fitted with a cybernetic lower jaw/breathing apparatus with a vocal emulator. During this time is also provided a tailored set of Sith Armor by Grand Master Muz Ashen, constructed to resemble that of the The Nephilim

Dark Summit

Assumes position as Aedile of House Taldryan, and succeeds Windos as Keeper of the Holocrons. Isolates himself in the Holocron Center on Antei, chronicling the Ancient Sith knowledge there. Starts down the road of a Sith Alchemist, learning to comprehend the ancient language, rituals, and technical processes. Constructs his first custom lightsaber, only to have it destroyed a few months later. Continues to use Herald-issued lightsabers.

The New Order

Leaves the Holocron Center to join the Iron Navy's forces shortly after the Horizons event takes place and Pravus ascends to the throne, itching to be behind the control yoke. Spends some time with them before joining the Inquisitorius and conducting missions for them. On a recon mission of his own, acquires the Sith holocron of Lord Phuxall, an Ancient Sith alchemist and weapons designer. Constructs the obsidian lightsaber Devorantem from ancient lightsaber plans concealed within the holocron.

Alchemy Obsession

Forms an obsession with becoming a master of Sith Alchemy. Returns to his studies of Sith Alchemical rites and technical processes in a bid to become a master Sith engineer.

Retribution

Assigned by the Inquisitorius to infiltrate Clan Naga Sadow. Constructs the unique crossguard lightsaber Shadowsteel to specifically combat Jedi opponents. Leads into GJW XII.

The Force Must End

Forms a somewhat similar belief to Rath Oligard - that the Force must come to an end by any means, but sees the Dark Brotherhood as a means to that end. Does not believe that the answer lies with strictly with the dark side of the Force, transitioning into a Force Disciple.
