"We command these armies. We're the best money can buy. You think you can beat all of us, keep coming."

Horic was a male mercenary captain who once fought for the Galactic Republic, but the war veteran eventually turned to mercenary work instead and became a powerful warlord. He was hired by the Hutt Cartel around the time of the conquest of Makeb to lead the armies gathering on the planet Darvannis. However, Horic and the other three warlords—Sunder, Vilus Garr, and Tu'chuk—were unknowingly hired by the Dread Master Styrak and not the Cartel. The four warlords were slain before Styrak's plans could advance beyond Darvannis.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Captain Horic appears as one of the Four Warlords, who collectively appear as the sixth and penultimate boss in the "Scum and Villainy" Operation. The Operation was added to the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic in the 2012 Digital Expansion Star Wars: The Old Republic: Rise of the Hutt Cartel,[2] and defeating the Warlords in various difficulty modes rewards players with painting-like trophies of the Warlords for use in the 2014 Digital Expansion Galactic Strongholds.[3]
