Balan Karus was a male Human from the planet Zakuul who served in the Knights of Zakuul during the era in which the Eternal Empire ruled over the galaxy. An elite Knight who held the title of Paladin, Karus wore dark armor and wielded a blue lightsaber in battle. He was stationed aboard the Star Fortress over the planet Belsavis, and died around 3631 BBY when the Star Fortress was invaded and destroyed.
Behind the scenesEdit
Balan Karus was added to the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic in Knights of the Fallen Empire, a 2015 Digital Expansion. He is one of four possible Paladins that can spawn during the Belsavis version of the "The Star Fortress" Flashpoint; as the Star Fortress is destroyed with all hands aboard, this article assumes that Karus died either in battle or when the battle station exploded.
Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire establishes that the Knights of Zakuul are Force-sensitive warriors from Zakuul's population.
- ↑ 2.0 2.1 According to the novel The Old Republic: Annihilation, the Treaty of Coruscant collapsed in 3642 BBY, and Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire states that Choza Raabat disappeared two years before that, or 3644 BBY. The game also establishes that Raabat's disappearance occurred twelve years before the events of Fallen Empire, so Chapters II-VII of Fallen Empire must take place in 3632 BBY, and Chapter I—which takes place five years prior to the rest of the expansion—in 3637 BBY. Chapter IX and the post-chapter content span a number of months, between the years 3632 and 3631 BBY.
