|A Jedi padawan under a venerable master during the early stages of the Empire, Ikirra Josten had the aspirations to become a Jedi Knight and help bring back the glory of the days before the Purge began.
One fateful day during his training, his master was attacked by none other than Darth Vader. Struck down before his eyes, his master became one with the Force and left Ikirra to defend himself against the Dark Lord of the Sith. Instead of killing him, Vader offered Ikirra an opportunity to complete his training in the Dark Side of the Force. Afraid of the dark lord, Ikirra agreed to his offer and abandoned his Jedi training.
Ikirra trained under the tutelage of one of Palpatine's dark pupils. Feeling the power of the Dark Side and convinced by the Emperor that the Jedi were weak, he quickly gave into his anger and became a dark warrior serving the Empire.
When Palpatine died over the moon of Endor, Ikirra was traveling the galaxy enforcing the Emperor's will. When the news reached him that the Empire was in retreat, he abandoned his orders and sought to create a new life for himself.
Now 44 years old, Ikirra works with the Xyber Corps working to hopefully find someone to begin training as his own apprentice in an attempt to eventually revive the Sith order with the few teachings he was taught from Darth Vader. He has heard of Luke Skywalker and regards him and any other Jedi that may exist in the galaxy with as much hatred as he had for his former Jedi master that abandoned him when he died.
