Darth Malak was a Dark Lord of the Sith 4000 years before Darth Sidious’ plot to turn the Old Republic into the Galactic Empire. Malak progressed with an iron fist in hopes to destroy the Republic and control the galaxy during the events of the original Knights of the Old Republic game.
Traditionally Malak wears red clothing and armor with black robes. His jaw is missing because of a lightsaber duel he was in. The rumor (and only a rumor, not confirmed) is that Master Kavar who makes an appearance the sequel game, Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, was the one who severed Malak’s jaw. Malak is a tall human, about as tall as a traditional Wookiee (put Zaalbar and Malak next to each other and they’re about the same height).
As modders, we seem to love to make changes and the original KOTOR game, Darth Malak is a target of re-skins. This is where Simon Lewis, who is making his FileFront debut comes in. In this re-skin, he decided to give the Dark Lord grey clothing with gold armor and a gold jaw piece to replace his fresh mouth. His eyes have been turned to Sith colored eyes. Of course the author has done what a lot of rookies (I’m included in this list) make mistakes when trying to do a re-skin of Malak is forgetting to re-skin his jawless head file. So the scene where Malak appears jawless telling his commander to have patience, he will have his traditional head that we see (assuming you’re not replacing a previous Malak skin). A totally original new look for the Dark Lord. If you need something different, here you go. Enjoy the new skin! :D
Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.
====================================================== A STAR WARS KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MOD ====================================================== AUTHOR: Simon Lewis [SimonLewis1992] EMAIL: [email protected] NAME: DARTH MALAK RESKIN CREDITS: Fred Tetra for the Kotor Tool that enabled useage of the Darth Malak Skin. FILENAME: malak_reskin.zip FILE SIZE: 470 kb DATE RELEASED: 3rd June 2007 DESCRIPTION: This modification edits several things about Darth Malak. Most notably, his armour is mostly silver/grey with Red and Gold bits, such as the chest plate. It also changes his eyes to a red and gold combination, with the slightest amount of red lines for a bloodshot effect. Also, his head tattoo has been given a tiny red tint, and his jawpiece is a goldish colour. I've also added a line from the side of his nose, similar to the ones you get whilst in the dark side on TSL. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Extract the zip contents [minus the Readme, but that's not vital] into the Override folder in your KOTOR folder. The directory will probably be "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic\Override" COMMENTS: After completing the game for the first time on the PC, I thought that I should touch up Malak a bit. Bear in mind, this is my first ever modification so it may be quite bad. BUGS: None known, will add any when I come across them. PERMISSIONS: This mod may be distributed as long as you gain permission from myself via E-Mail. My E-Mail is listed already.
