"I am Red Walker. You echo, but are empty of Hallow Voice's scent. The blackess must still shroud him."
―Red Walker.[src]

Red Walker was a male Esh-kha who was born thousands of years ago in a period in the galaxy where his people were at their height. In this time, a new patriarch was born known as Hallow Voice who proposed a foreign line of thinking that involved co-existence with alien species. Red Walker became one of many Esh-kha that were the followers of Hallow Voice. However, his peoples rampage across the galaxy attracted the attention of the Infinite Empire and the Rakata imprisoned all the surviving Esh-kha including Red Walker in stasis on the prison world of Belsavis. For millennia, Red Walker remained trapped in this state until the Barsen'thor freed him during the Cold War.
