Damek-Ol was a male Gormak who studied the Force with the Jedi Order in the ancient past of Voss when Jedi and Sith fought on the planet; However, Damek-Ol's greed and arrogance of the consequences of learning the Force caused the birth of Sel-Makor; in later time during the Cold War, he resurfaced as a Force ghost and he told an outsider to go back to Voss-Ka and tell them that Gormak and the Voss were previously one race, and threatened Voss with their fight against the Gormak.
In ancient times, Sith and Jedi came to battle on the planet called Voss. The natives who inhabited the planet were strong in the Force. In their greed, the natives asked the Jedi to teach them how to use the Force in exchange for fighting their enemies. Damek-Ol was among the many disciples.
However, the natives failed in understanding the Force. Those who chose to study the Force would become known as the Voss, while those who did not and saw the Force as a corruption became the beastly Gormak. The creation of two races also created a dark side entity called Sel-Makor, who settled in an area called the Nightmare Lands.
Damek-Ol died under unknown circumstances, but his spirit endured. Unfortunately, Sel-Makor imprisoned Damek-Ol in the body of his Dashade avatar, where he would remain for hundreds of years, even as Voss faded from memory of the greater galaxy.
By 3641 BBY, during the Galactic War, a Republic strike team ventured into the Nightmare Lands to discover the identity of the dark power that resided there. Upon encountering and killing the Dashade avatar of Sel-Makor, Damek-Ol was freed. With little time left in the physical world, the Gormak ghost explained to the strike team the true history behind Voss and Sel-Makor. He urged them to return to Voss-Ka and warn his people that the Nightmare Lands would grow so long as both Voss and Gormak continue to war. However, he warned that revealing the truth may affect the Republic's efforts to gain an alliance with his people, as they may not believe it. The Republic heroes finally told the truth to the Three, Voss-Ka's rulers.
