Lord Vartonis was a Dark Jedi operating on Mustafar during the Galactic Civil War. He had hoped to capture a mysterious crystal left on the planet by the Jedi thousands of years ago, but an anonymous spacer, with the help of Obi-Wan Kenobi's Force ghost, was able to defeat him, and destroy the powerful crystal.
Behind the scenesEdit
Vartonis appeared as a non-player character in the video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online-role playing game developed by Sony and published by LucasArts, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.
It was possible to attempt to take the crystal for yourself in-game, but Obi-Wan's Force ghost prevented you, draining the crystal of it's power and giving you the drained form, which increased your in-game stats when used. The canonical version gave players a similar item.
