|Chronological and political information|
Manipulating events so that he might gain an advantage over his master Darth Vengean, Darth Baras placed his own secret apprentice, Lord Draahg, in Vengean's service. As Baras's spy, Lord Draahg reported on Darth Vengean's private meetings and shifting alliances--information Vengean had deliberately prevented Baras from learning. Draahg had carefully cultivated a facade of a blandly obedient menace, always careful to please Vengean but never betraying a hint of his true loyalties. This talent for fading into the background served him well on Korriban, where he survived an especially brutal overseer's training by ensuring that all the other acolytes attracted more attention. It was this very quality that secured Darth Baras's approval and choice of apprentice.
But Draahg was not to be underestimated. As the chosen apprentice of both Baras and Vengean, he possessed a breadth of knowledge and a depth of power few others could claim. In the end he helped the Sith Warrior to kill Vengean as the last act of Baras’ version of Plan Zero. Baras ordered Draahg to hold back, to keep the true extent of his strength secret from the Warrior. Once Vengean lay dead, Baras was able to ascend to his seat on the Dark Council.
Shortly afterwards, Darth Baras sent Draahg to kill the Sith Warrior on Quesh for fear that the Warrior would become strong enough to challenge him. Using one of his Republic moles, Baras sent Captain Trey-yen a detonator that was not wired to an explosive meant to destroy an Imperial base. Draahg had the real detonator and attempted to bury the Warrior in a mine, but failed, unknown to him. The Warrior was saved by the Emperor's Hands and granted the title of the Emperor's Wrath.
Draahg re-encountered his former ally on the Hoth orbital station, where the Warrior had been dispatched by the Emperor's Hand to redeploy Armageddon Battalion to Corellia. He had already subdued the Warrior's inactive companions, intending to subject them to Baras' service, before attempting to finish the job he started. In turn, the Wrath promised to exact revenge on both him and Baras for their betrayal. Unfazed, Draahg boasted that Baras may have held back on the Wrath's training, but he wields the combined teachings of both Baras and Vengean. The two Sith engaged each other in a lightsaber duel. After three sallies, Draahg admitted defeat but promised that Baras will be victorious. The Wrath simply laughed at him, provoking Draahg into charging, only for the Wrath to leap over him and Force-pushed into a fire over a railing. Draahg's apparent demise alerted Baras to the Wrath's survival.
Draahg survived using the pain from his burns before drinking of anguish as Baras salvaged and rebuilt him into a cyborg. He ambushed the Warrior on Corellia and summoned a death field on Darth Vowrawn and battled with the Sith Warrior to ensure the continued bondage of The Entity, Darth Baras' asset. But he finally died, releasing Darth Vowrawn.
Personality and traitsEdit
Draahg displayed utmost loyalty to Baras, who was grooming him to be his general. He followed his Master's orders without question. He was loyal to the point where he blindly believed that Baras was truly the Voice of the Emperor.
After his defeat at the hands of the Emperor's Wrath, Draahg nursed complete hatred for his rival. As he was rebuilt into a cyborg, he was more than eagerly to get his revenge, but his overconfidence led to his undoing.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Lord Draahg boasted that he was invincible, and indeed demonstrated the ability to suffer incredible injury and continue fighting at full strength. During his battles, multiple lightsaber cuts failed to fell him, and even being burned alive only stopped him for a short while. He was also resistant to many Force abilities, shrugging them off easily. Eventually the Emperor's Wrath was forced to cut off his head, an injury not even he could survive.
Lord Draahg was also a master of the lightsaber, an equal to even some on the Dark Council. He supplemented his physical skills with many advanced Force techniques, taking on both the Emperor's Wrath and Darth Vowrawn together and providing a significant challenge.

Draahg was voiced by Nicholas Boulton.
