"Only their handler, Commander Vox, can answer that question. Sadly, he has lost his mental faculties."
―Commander Nol, on the subject of why the Dread Masters revolted[src]

Vox was a male commander in the Imperial Military of the Sith Empire who was assigned as the handler for the Sith Lords known as the Dread Masters. However, the Dread Masters turned on the Empire and used their powers over fear to drive Vox insane.


Vox was first mentioned in the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic. Vox is included in the game's listing of NPCs, as he was originally planned as a character in the cancelled Operation "The Dread Masters." The operation was among the Update 1.5 content that was leaked in February 2012 about Game Updates 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5, but the operation was abandoned and its spiritual successors, the "Dread Fortress" and "Dread Palace" operations, were not added until Game Update 2.4.
