- «There was a patrol here just yesterday, and they found nothing! Why do the Sith keep bothering us?»
[Soldier shoots Ixgil] "That's how we Sith deal with smart-mouth aliens!"
- ―Ixgil's final conversation, with a Sith soldier
Ixgil was a Duros male who lived in the South Apartments on the Outer Rim world of Taris. In 3956 BBY, the apartments were raided by members of Darth Malak's Sith Empire. When Ixgil complained about their activities, the Human leader of the raiding group shot him, killing the Duros instantly. After the Sith were defeated by Republic agents who had witnessed the event, Ixgil's friend hid his corpse to prevent the authorities from becoming suspicious.
- "Right you alien scum, everybody get up against the wall! This is a raid!"
- ―Ixgil's killer, a Sith soldier
The male Duros Ixgil resided in the South Apartments of the Upper City on the Outer Rim world of Taris with his friend, a fellow Duros. In 3956 BBY, the Sith, under the command of Darth Malak, invaded and occupied the planet as part of their war effort against the Galactic Republic. Upon arrival in the system, the Republic cruiser Endar Spire was ambushed in a battle over the planet. Although the ship was destroyed, several troops were able to survive by fleeing to the surface in escape pods; two of whom were Republic soldiers Carth Onasi and Revan. After they crash-landed, the pair took refuge in the South Apartments, where Onasi hoped they would not be found by the Sith.
Several days afterward, the apartments were the subject of a raid conducted by a Human soldier and two battle droids. This was not the first time that the Sith had raided the building since Ixgil's occupation, and when he complained about the Sith's frequent intrusions, the Human became enraged and shot him in the chest three times, killing the Duros.
Revan and Onasi witnessed the event and managed to defeat the Sith raiding party, saving Ixgil's friend. After the fight, Ixgil's friend thanked them and regretted that Ixgil had spoken out against his killers. He later hid the remains of Ixgil and those of the Sith to prevent any investigators from learning about the incident, which would have brought about dire consequences for all involved.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "Poor Ixgil. He should never have talked back to that Sith."
- ―Ixgil's companion, reflecting on his friend's death
Ixgil was not afraid to voice his complaints about the Sith and their disruptive activities, despite the fact that it could have seen him arrested, injured, or, in his case, killed. He accepted life in the Upper City, despite the Humanocentric views of much of the population that prevented most non-Humans from residing there. Ixgil could understand Galactic Basic in addition to Durese.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ixgil's first appearance in canon was as a non-playable character in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game. His dialogue is spoken during a cutscene from the viewpoint of the player, Revan. The cutscene, and hence Ixgil's death, cannot be avoided, and occurs regardless of player gender or alignment.
In the cutscene, two quotes are pronounced differently to their dialogue subtitles. In the first case, the subtitles say, "Okay you alien scum," but the voice actor clearly says, "Right you alien scum." In the second case, the subtitles say, "Hey, what's this?," instead of the spoken "What's this?" For the purposes of this article, the spoken dialogue is the one that has been used.
