Star Wars Galaxies Reveals Sith Lord Exar Kun


Star Wars Galaxies is offering players a preview of the upcoming Chapter 9, which centers around Yavin 4.

“That place… is strong with the dark side of the Force. A domain of evil it is. In you must go.” – Yoda

Players will be pitted against the spirit and twisted minions of a fallen Sith Lord, Exar Kun. This fallen jedi is the very power that started the Sith War. Kun absorbed the lifeforce of the entire Massassi people in his last stand. Although his body and the Brotherhood of the Sith were destroyed, his spirit lingers on, far from powerless. Players will explore unearthed Sith temples and take on the abominations that haunt Yavin 4 as they hunt for Sith artifacts.

Somehow I can’t help but think of the dark lord Sauron from the Lord of the Rings. Still Sith history has been of great interest to Star Wars fans, and is very much the cool thing right now. Just look at the anticipation of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed where the main charcter is by default Vader’s secret apprentice.

Who can really blame people for being fascinated by the bad guy. Awful good characters can become tiresome in their insistence that everybody be good or else. It’s often easier to identify with the villain who is rarely perfect. Besides a character needs a challenge to make them heroic.

*sigh* Exar Kun has absolutely nothing in common with Sauron.. He isn’t some penultimate bad guy responsible for all the evil in the galaxy.

Just most of it.
