Life as a noblemanEdit
- "Information is always valuable."
- ―Nok Drayen
Nok Drayen was present for a business meeting held at the Star Cluster Casino on the smuggler's moon of Nar Shaddaa in 3,653 BBY. He and several other individuals were meeting to discuss their interests and how those interests would change now that the Sith Empire had forced the Republic to sign the Treaty of Coruscant. As the meeting was called to order, Drayen exposed Naatu for providing information to the Republic and proceeded to draw his blaster and execute him. He then introduced the Sith Lord Darth Angral, who was there to make the group a proposition.
After the bounty hunter, Braden, escaped from imprisonment on a Sith warship, he returned to Nar Shaddaa to gain Drayen's assistance. He agreed on the condition that Braden help him with some of his business in exchange.
In 3,653 BBY, as the Cold War dragged on, Drayen was betrayed by one of his lieutenants, infected by a devastating disease. It ate away so much of his skin, along with his right eye, that he had to place the infected areas with cybernetics. It resulted little, however, for the disease would destroy his organs.
Drayen tried asking the Jedi Order for help, but they were "uncooperative." As a result, he killed three of them so that he might learn what "secrets" they might have had.
Drayen was secretly frozen in carbonite by his Selkath doctor, Chelah, so that he could "cheat" death for as long as possible. From there, his daughter Risha would keep him around with her for ten years.
In 3,643 BBY, Risha found the smuggler Ace and partnered up to find Nok Drayen's treasure, all the while as Risha keeping her father's existence secret. However, they needed upgrades for their ship and once they had them all, Risha decided it was time to tell the truth. She brought Nok Drayen's carbonite block to Nar Shaddaa, where Doctor Chelah would unfreeze him.
During the brief father-and-daughter reunion, it was a matter of time before the illness reached the mighty Drayen's heart, so he urged Ace to hurry. Ace returned with the lost crown of Dubrillion, to find him dying. With death looming over him, Drayen tells Risha to take the crown, and take back the throne of Dubrillion for herself. However, if she was to succeed, she would have to do many questionable things, and ordered her to kill the smuggler. She refused, and with his dying words, he told Risha how disappointed he was in her, and succumbed to his illness.
