|Chronological and political information|
Renning was a corpulent male Human Sith Lord and the Sith Master of Malora who had many resources made available to him by the Dark Council so that he could further the Sith knowledge. During the Cold War, his apprentice thought he was wasting the Empire's time and attempted to sabotage one of his experiments. Renning was displeased by her action toward his experiments and tortured her by releasing a bolt of Force lightning as punishment.
