Before becoming an unwilling follower of Exar Kun, the Clenched Fist of Hate was a student at Corellia University, and may have been a member of an archeological expedition on Yavin 4 in 1 ABY that unknowingly tunneled into the tombs below the Temple of Exar Kun and released the Sith Lord's spirit. The evil spirit proceeded to bind the students and researchers to his will, and induct them into the Cult of Exar Kun. Afterward, he sent them to Talus, to the Corellia University research outpost they had originally come from to enslave the rest of the people there. The majority of them were then sent back to Yavin 4. After losing contact with the outpost and fearing the worst, Professor Cornelius Wagglehorn hired a group of spacers to travel to Talus and investigate. After arriving at the research outpost and discovering what had happened, the spacers informed the professor. He sent them the location of the tomb and implored them to travel there and destroy the malevolent spirit. The Clenched Fist was the fourth major enemy the group encountered, having previously encountered and defeated the Open Hand of Hate, the Minder of Weak Wills, and the Caretaker of the Lost Souls. The Clenched Fist would prove to be their biggest challenge yet. After sending six of his tomb guardian minions after the spacers, two at a time, the Clenched Fist launched his attack at the group, brandishing a long, two handed sword of Massassi construction, and constantly setting many of the spacers ablaze with the Force. After a long battle, with many burns and blade cuts suffered by the ragtag group of spacers, the Clenched Fist was finally killed, his spirit fleeing from the grasp of Exar Kun. After his death, the spacers were free to challenge Exar Kun's spirit directly.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Clenched Fist of Hate is a "boss" enemy NPC in the Temple of Exar Kun Heroic Encounter in Star Wars Galaxies. He is the fourth encounter in the instance, coming after the Open Hand of Hate, the Minder of Weak Wills and the Caretaker of Lost Souls. Due to the nature of the game, the Clenched Fist's appearance changes every time he is encountered, so the provided picture is just one possibility of how he may have looked. He is consistently a human male wearing the black robe, however.
