Legacy of the Force
Once a Jedi named A’Sharad Hett who fought in the Clone Wars, Hett became embittered about the fate of the galaxy, and uncovered the Sith holocron of the ancient XoXaan on the planet Korriban. After being captured and tortured by the Yuuzhan Vong, Hett emerged as Darth Krayt, and spent nearly a century secretly building a new Sith Order. Krayt secretly engineered the Sith–Imperial War, and after helping the Imperials to win, took the throne for himself and began his rule of the galaxy. Infected by a Yuuzhan Vong malady that is slowly taking over his body, Krayt seeks Cade Skywalker’s healing powers to rid him of his illness.
