|Chronological and political information|
Darth Venemal was a male Sith Lord who served the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War, and in 3660 BBY, he fought alongside fellow Sith Lord Darth Malgus during an attack on the planet Ord Radama. Their assault was initially successful and after about twenty days of fighting, their forces had captured the city Livien Magnus, Ord Radama's capital. The Dark Council dispatched Lord Adraas to assist Malgus and Venemal, and Adraas attempted to take credit for the pair's success.
However, the Sith forces on the planet were not resupplied and they were eventually overcame; Venemal was killed when a Harrower-class dreadnought crashed in the center of Livien Magnus. Malgus could sense his pain and death, along with that of a hundred thousand others aboard the doomed ship. The Sith Empire was forced to withdraw from Ord Radama, and Malgus received some of the blame for Venemal's death and the defeat.
Behind the scenesEdit
Darth Venemal was created by Daniel Wallace and was featured in the 2012 publication Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side. Wallace intended Venemal's name to be a reference to the "Veni, vidi, vici" quote of the statesman Julius Caesar.
