|Chronological and political information|
- "Lieutenant Drellik has quite the reputation in his field. He's the perfect combination of brilliant, valuable, and deceptively non-threatening."
- ―Darth Zash
- "I'm an archaeologist, not a fighter."
- ―Talos Drellik
Talos Drellik was the son of Moff Drellik, who expressed his desire that one of his sons would be trained as a Sith and another would serve in the Imperial military. Talos' brother would be taken for training at the Sith Academy on Korriban by Darth Marr of the Dark Council, though he never spoke to his family again. Moff Drellik cursed his Sith son as an "ungrateful little rat", though Talos suspected this was simply his father's way of expressing his grief.
Following his father's wishes, Talos would join the Imperial military, and achieved the rank of lieutenant. However, he never excelled as a soldier; his true passion was history and archeology, leading him to join up with the Imperial Reclamation Service. To Talos, the Reclamation Service did an invaluable job, preserving Imperial and Sith history against the onslaught of time. He later commented that after the cursing had stopped, his father had warmed to the idea.
Unlike many Reclamation Service officers who are career soldiers with only a passing interest in history, Lieutenant Drellik had thrown himself into his work, studying with experts in the field such as the illustrious Professor Auselio Gann and galactic historian Deravon Wells.
In 3,642 BBY, Talos was stationed on Hoth, searching for Sith ruins. While he was searching for the ruins in The Bitter End, he was approached by Lord Kallig, who came to Hoth in search of a Force ghost named Horak-mul. Talos provided assistance to Kallig in locating Horak-Mul's resting place. Afterwards, he resigned from the Reclamation Service to follow Kallig, serving faithfully even when his Master ran afoul of Darth Thanaton and eventually ascended to the Dark Council.
