This is one of those rare characters that, rather than being someone's random "hey I made this!" personal skin, seems to actually be based on a pre-existing concept. So rather than a story applied to a random skin, it's... a random skin applied to a story? :p
Nah, I wouldn't call this random at all. Judging from the story provided (see the read-me) the cultist sounds like he would very much fit the description. To further help the model along the face has been altered -- grey skin and black goo of some kind dripping from the eyes -- and what seems to be potentially some grunge brushwork over the textures, which are mostly the same as the base textures but slightly different in the hue and saturation departments. Okay, so I just really nicely said "this is a recolor with some paint on it." Oddly enough I actually find it very tasteful. The brushwork is not overbearing and I've always quite liked the design of the cultist. The model really does too much credit to the silly NPCs in the game. They don't deserve such a nice model!
My favorite bit about this is the camouflage pattern on the sleeves and part of the legs. It's very subtle, and fits very well with the color scheme of the rest of the skin. My least favorite part is the face -- the complete greyscale just doesn't seem to fit the rest of the skin. Overall not a bad cultist reskin, though. Definitely better than the average.

============================================== Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Skin - GIS MERO ============================================== Thank you for downloading this first version of Gis Mero, a skin for Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. It is a reskin of the cultist model, and it is my first "serious" skinning project. He is a Sith. He has shown immunity to many poisons, although side effects show on him. His eyesight is dwindling, a side effect of the Morpo Hang poison dart he got hit by during a run-in with a bounty hunter, but the Force helps him see more clearly. He is very mean, and you should be too if you play as him. :) Team Colours: Yes New Sounds: Yes (Rax) Bot Support: No, I don't know how to do that... yet. NPC Support: No, I don't know how to do that... yet. Singleplayer Support: No, I don't know how to do that... yet. ============================================== Installation ============================================== Extract zzz_Gis_Mero.pk3 into your default Jedi Academy BASE directory.
