Yellow (dark side)
|Chronological and political information|
Darth Ekkage was a female human Dark Lord of the Sith and Dark Councilor in the times of the Great Galactic War. She was the sister of Darth Baras and one of the greatest Sith assassins to ever live. Head of the Sphere of Mysteries, she was also in charge of the Red Legion, an Imperial unit of killers.
During the war, Ekkage and her minions were imprisoned on Belsavis after she was betrayed and handed over to the Jedi by one of her own--a Sith assassin who renounced the dark side and sought refuge among the Jedi. Many believe Darth Ekkage was as powerful a weapon as the Sith have ever had, and that their victory over the Republic would have been completed long ago if Ekkage had not been captured by Jedi Master Nomen Karr, who earned the hatred of Baras. But there were also many within the Sith who feared her--realizing that they could just as easily be her next target.
Learning about Ekkage's survival, Darth Baras sent Lord Melicoste to free her, knowing that her return would solidify his claim as the Voice of the Emperor, which he succeeded. However, Ekkage sensed the loss of her assassins and killed Melicoste for his incompetence, taking his lightsaber. Then, a mysterious Sith Lord appeared out of hiding, remarking that she's so like Baras, to betray someone so loyal to them. Ekkage claimed it to be family trait and then asked who the Sith was. Just then, Jedi Master Somminick Timmns, whom Ekkage recognized as "Nomen Karr's sad little whelp", appeared, claiming that the Sith is with him. She accused the Sith of being a fool and a traitor for working with a Jedi. In turn, the Sith announced themselves as the Emperor's Wrath, sent by his Hand to kill her and her brother. Lamenting that the Hand had stooped as low to work with the Jedi, Ekkage engaged the two. Despite being a Dark Councillor, Ekkage was defeated. The Wrath then executed her.
