A member of the Sphere of Ancient Knowledge, he followed Darth Arctis, who around 3668 BBY send Veijel on an assignment to Rishi to watch and observe the Rishi Maze. Veijel spend the next thirty years on Rishi, during which Arctis was replaced by Darth Thanaton, who was in turn replaced by Darth Nox. Arctis and Thanaton believed Rishi Maze to hold the key to immortality, which Veijel doubted, though his was still provided significant resources.
Veijel's decades on Rishi were not in vain, as he was able to receive signals from the dwarf galaxy. The messages were in ancient language that contained words of Sith, Gree and Rakata languages and described instructions on improving the communication arrays that Veijel used. The machines were now able to increase lifespan of an individual "twice transmutted and reborn to the Mother". The latest Dark Councillor of the Sphere of Ancient Knowledge Darth Nox fit that description and Veijel began seeking an audience, refusing to speak of it to anyone else.
However, so did many others and Veijel had to wait from Nox's ascension in 3641 BBY until 3638 BBY, when Nox arrived on Rishi. Veijel finally arranged a meeting through Moff Valion Pyron and presented the Dark Lord his findings. When Nox interacted with the machine build from alien design, the machine provided cellular rejuvenation, increasing the Dark Lord's lifespan by one solar cycle. Veijel was overjoyed to hear of the results and asked his master for additional resources: scientists to replicate the machines, batallions to pacify Rishi and fleets to explore the Rishi Maze. Since each of those would contribute to prolonging the Dark Lord's life, Nox agreed to grant Veijel anything that he required.
Behind the scenesEdit
Veijel appears in Star Wars: The Old Republic: Shadow of Revan during the Sith Inquisitor class quest on Rishi. Although it is presumed that Nox took the Dark Side option and gave Veijel all the resources he requested, the Dark Lord also has the option listening to Drellik's advice and give Veijel limited resources, or ordering him to abandon his research and assist Moff Pyron in reorganizing the Sphere of Ancient Knowledge's war effort (the latter for Light Side points).
