Exar Kun was a Jedi Knight who fell to the dark side, assumed the mantle of Dark Lord of the Sith, and waged a destructive war against the Galactic Republic and Jedi Order during the era of the Old Sith Wars. A Human male, Kun was apprenticed to the respected Jedi Master Vodo-Siosk Baas, and in his days as a student he came across forbidden knowledge of the history of the Sith. Extremely confident in his own abilities and naturally quick to anger, Kun was filled with a burning curiosity regarding the Sith, and soon went on his own quest to find out as much as he could. Kun’s search led him to the planet Onderon, which had once been ruled by a Sith Lord named Freedon Nadd. With the help of a pair of Nadd’s followers, Kun came across Nadd’s tomb on Onderon’s moon Dxun, and there was confronted with the spirit of the dead Sith himself. Seeing in Kun a potential avenue to regain a physical form, Nadd directed the young Jedi to the ancient Sith homeworld of Korriban. There, Nadd conspired to grievously injure Kun, only healing the man when he accepted the dark side into his heart. Kun’s next stop was to the moon Yavin 4, a place with its own Sith history—Kun enslaved the primitive Massassi living there and compelled them to build extensive temple complexes across the forested world. Soon afterward the fully corrupted Kun banished Nadd’s spirit, having never trusted the old Sith, and in the process learned of several other nascent dark side users who had learned from Nadd.
Why I don’t understand the Star Wars expanded Universe
Ok so we have several major
Sith Bad guys, Dark Revan from KOTOR, we have this guy Naga Sadow who is some
sort of Red monster asshole, you have the Sith Emperor who is an old mass
murdering asshole, you have Exar Kun a fallen Jedi Sith lord Asshole, and
Freedon Nadd who is a different ancient Sith asshole. All of them ruled over Empires, all of their
empiers were vaugly nazi pataches who use the same military structure, all of
them have the same stupid Sith morality system, the same incesscent infighting
and the same inexplictably ability to win battles despite being fundamentally disorganized. So um….what makes any of these guys different
from each other? Like beyond Revan’s
cool RPG, aren’t these guys all the same person just wearing a slightly
different mask? For that matter, every
single major event in the Old Republic seems to be “exact same bad guy with
different name using the exact same style ships invades the Republic, kicks
their asses for a bit until destroyed by mystical hero, repeat”. Like does the Republic ever just go “You know
what, fuck it, lets build a giant fuck off military so we can defeat these
assholes. You’d think considering our
massive size and the fact that we don’t eat babies we would have a stronger
recruitment base, and that our enemies seem pathologically driven to infighting
we could win easily, but no, apparently we are the opposite of the US and don’t
have any military budget what so ever.
Also what the fuck are
with the mandalorian, what kind of Kilon Planet of the Hats Noble Savage
bullshit are they coming from? Boba Fett
hunted people down for money, if he was some sort of backwards adreline junkie,
he would have faced off against Han and company personally to fight them. What backwards shit is this?
I still don’t get this, why did the Jedi not fight in the Mandalorian Invasion
in KOTOR? They don’t seem to have any
problem fighting in any of the other wars, what contrived bullshit is this.
Does anything change in
the EU that isn’t just Bioware having?
Christ, I think that Black Isle was right about this francise.
