Darth Nox Respect Thread

“Moffs, Generals. Today you will see who holds the real power in the Sith Empire. Not the Dark Council, not Thanaton. Me. When I finish my ascent, all will bow or face my might.”

—Darth Nox (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

This originally started as a project for a dear friend of mine, and it unfortunately took me much longer than I had expected. However, as I delved into the character, I found Darth Nox to be incredibly impressive. Before you begin reading, however, there are a few things that should be noted first. Firstly, I have attempted to order everything chronologically. However, quotes from the SWTOR website and Encyclopedia and feats from the game trailers made it difficult. To resolve that, I have placed the aforementioned items ahead of other feats and quotes, and the rest that follow will be in chronological order. As such, feats will be separated by Act or Chapter and ordered via planet (you might take note that trailer feats will also appear within by planet). Outside of those minor changes, the rest should seem very familiar to respect thread makers and readers. With all of that said, please enjoy the thread! Respect Darth Nox, the slave turned Dark Council member!

Accolades

Darth Nox is a Force Prodigy:

“Sinister, Deceptive, Prodigy of Force Power”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Website

As a Sith Inquisitor, Darth Nox is a highly skilled manipulator and master of the dark arts of the Sith:

"To be a Sith requires strength, confidence, and sheer power. But to become a Sith Inquisitor, one must embrace the dark side and wield its destructive power with unparalleled cunning. While other Sith fight amongst themselves, inquisitors survey the battlefield, devise sinister plans to seize power, and manipulate enemies into warring with each other. Masters of political scheming, backstabbing, and deceit, inquisitors play deadly sparring matches for power and influence. And when politics fail, inquisitors stride into battle and humble all who oppose them with dreadful, awe-inspiring displays of dark side sorcery. With millions of Sith vying for such power. The battle climb to the pyramid of the hierarchy is won only by the most devious, clever, and powerful masters of the dark side."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia

As an Inquisitor of the Sith Empire, Darth Nox is a master of the dark side:

"The Empire is ruled, dominated, and manipulated by Sith inquisitors. Those who refuse to worship or obey are broken by these masters of the dark side."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia

Darth Nox is a dark threat unlike any other:

"Delving ever deeper into the dark side of the Force can lead to madness, but it can also lead to immense power. Attacking multiple enemies simultaneously and instilling terror in their hearts, all while sapping their life essence from afar, the Madness Sorcerer is a dark threat unlike any other."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Disciplines

Darth Nox is a master of the dark side and possesses an indomitable spirit:

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Website

Darth Nox harnesses immense volatile energies and he is strong enough in the dark side of the Force that the air crackles around him:

“The Dark Side holds dangerous secrets – and immense power for those who dare to uncover them. The Sorcerer reaches into the darkest corners of the Force to harness volatile energies that can wreak devastation on his enemies and bolster or even heal his allies. The air around a Sorcerer crackles with dark energy, and those foolish enough to get in a Sorcerer’s way soon learn a new definition of suffering.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Website

Darth Nox passes his Sith Trials with flying colors, overcoming every obstacle put in front of him:

“Most slaves are too weak to complete the trials. But one slave displays incredible cunning and a fearsome talent for the dark side. Begrudgingly instructed by Overseer Harkun, the slave acolyte conquers the trials, dominates a Dashaed assassin named Khem Val into servitude, and overwhelms the other students, including a Sith pureblood groomed for success. Despite Overseer Harkun’s attempts to sabotage the slave and preserve the Sith legacy, the acolyte triumphs to become a Sith inquisitor. The enigmatic Sith Lord Zash embraces the inquisitor as her apprentice, beginning the former slave’s ascension to power.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia

Khem Val views Darth Nox as potentially a worthy successor to Tulak Hord:

“Sith, you are more powerful than I had judged. Perhaps, a worthy successor to Tulak Hord.”

—Khem Val (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Darth Nox’s strength in the Force awakens the spirit of the Sith Lord Kallig, a rival of the legendary Dark Lord of the Sith Tulak Hord:

“Yes—Yes! I have been waiting for you, I felt your movements in the Force, and they stirred me from my nightmare.”

“Your strength in the Force has awakened me from my stupor.”

“You’re stronger than any I have faced…”

—Lord Paladius (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

The Spirit of Lord Kallig predicts that Darth Nox’s strength in the Force will shake the Sith:

“My child. Your power has grown since we last met. Your strength will rise and shake the Sith. I feel it!”

—Lord Kallig’s Spirit (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

The Spirit of Lord Kallig considers Nox to possess great power:

“My own lightsaber. Until now, lost to me… but through your great power in the Force, I have found it. You must claim it.”

—Lord Kallig’s Spirit (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Darth Zash is enthralled by Darth Nox’s ‘marvelous’ power:

“Such marvelous power radiates from you now. Clear. Strong. You have truly come into your own.”

“The visionaries always see the truth.”

—Sor-Nak (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Khem Val considers Darth Nox the heir of Tulak Hord:

—Khem Val (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Darth Zash believes Darth Nox is too powerful for her to possess via Essence Transfer:

“No, you’re too powerful now.”

—Darth Zash (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Darth Nox is considered a great warrior by his apprentice Xalek:

“You are a great warrior. I will follow you to death.”

—Xalek (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Lord. You are a great warrior.”

In light of his reputation for his mastery of the dark side, Darth Nox is promoted to the Dark Council by Darth Marr after slaying Darth Thanaton:

“By order of the Dark Council and in light of your reputation as a master of the dark side, you are now Darth Nox. You are head of the pyramid of ancient knowledge. You are charged with keeping the mystical knowledge of the Sith and preserving the secrets of our order. With us, you are ruler of all the Sith, answerable only to the Emperor himself.”

—Darth Marr (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

As a member of the Dark Council, Darth Nox holds one of the highest positions attainable in the Sith Empire and stands among the most powerful Sith:

"The Dark Council are the galaxy's most powerful Sith."

―Moff Valion Pyron (Star Wars The Old Republic)

"In the Emperor's absence, the galaxy's most domineering, powerful, brilliant, and cunning Sith lead the Empire's path to glory."

―Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia

"While the undying Emperor serves as the unquestioned leader of the Empire, the twelve members of the Dark Council oversee the daily workings of their vast civilization and speak in the Emperor’s name. Each is among the most powerful Sith in the galaxy; to hold a seat on the council is the highest honor and the greatest position of influence a Sith can attain."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic

Revan, one of the most powerful Force-users in history, was awed by Darth Nox's incredible rise to power:

“Dark Lord. Even I look in awe at your accelerated rise to power. You did not get where you are today through kindness or moderation. It has served you well. You make a fine example.”

—Revan’s Spirit(Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Force Healing is the ability to heal the self or others of their injuries, mending broken bones and flesh through the power of the Force.

Darth Nox is able to use the Force to heal others:

"The dark side of the Force provides many benefits, including the ability to ward off death itself. By conjujring a series of arcane Force abilities from out of harm's way, the Corruption Sorcerer can sustain injured allies, allowing them to fight on with the power of the dark side's twisted gift."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Disciplines

Force Concealment

Force Concealment is the ability that allows a Force user to bend light around themselves, rendering them invisible to the naked eye.

Darth Nox is skilled in Force Concealment and stealth:

“Trained with stealth and double-bladed lightsabers, an Assassin can sneak in close to finish targets with acrobatic lightsaber moves and deadly lightning attacks. Assassins embracing Darkness can shroud themselves in dark side powers that obscure sight and leverage the defensive capabilities of a double-bladed lightsaber to harden their defenses.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic (Sith Inquisitor codex)

"Assassins leap from the shadows, channeling Force Lightning through their double-bladed lightsabers to disable and drain their enemies. They are masters of subterfuge, feared by even the most terrible opponents."

Force-Walking

Force-Walking is an ancient Sith technique that allows a Sith to bind the spirits of the dead to them in order to draw on their power for offense and defense. By tethering themselves to the dead, the ritualist becomes effectively invincible as the spirits prevent them from actually dying.

Chapter 2

Darth Nox possesses a pull among ghosts and thus learned the Force Walking ritual, a powerful technique requiring great willpower to bind the spirits of dead Sith and other spirits and allowing the ritualist to draw from their power for attack and defense. In addition, so long as the spirits remain bound, the Sith is practically immortal. The ritual is far easier to perform on a spirit who is willing, and far more difficult to perform when the spirit resists:

“You have a rare pull among ghosts. It’s a source of great power, but it has destroyed many a Sith.”

—Lord Kallig’s Spirit (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Requiring a Sith of great strength of will, the ritual of Force-walking allows the user to bind the restless ghosts of dead Sith to himself. Once the ghosts are bound, the ritualist may draw from their power, channeling it into a powerful exertion of Force energy against his enemies.”

—SWTOR codex (Force-walking)

The Force-walking ritual has a drastic side-effect, however. Attempting to control too many spirits can cause physical and spiritual decay and lead to outbursts of power beyond the Sith’s control:

“It appears, however, that binding too many ghosts can quickly overwhelm the host, inflicting physical and spiritual sickness on the Force-walking Sith and leading to violent expressions of Force power beyond the Sith’s control.”

—SWTOR codex (Force-walking sickness)

Darth Nox learns the Force-Walking ritual from the Servant of Ergast:

—Captain Quellon (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Dream-Walking

An incredibly rare Voss healing technique, Dream-walking is a healing ritual that allows the user to enter their own mind to conquer their emotions and demons.

“The spirit healers and dream-walkers of Voss are a strange group, even by Voss standards. Preferring to spend most of their time meditating in the wilderness of the Old Paths instead of in Voss-Ka, these Mystics work on healing the mind rather than the body. Using the ritual of dream-walking, the Mystics enter their own minds and face their own fears, hopes, loves and rages, seeking spiritual balance and health. Such spirit healers are few, but there is evidence of their existence throughout Voss history, and an archive of their writings is kept for spirit healer initiates in the Shrine of Healing.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic codex (Dream-Walking)

Darth Nox enters a dream as part of his initiation to become a member of the Voss Dream-Walker cult. In the dream, Nox faces his demons and contends with the spirits he has bound, all of whom summon illusions of people Darth Nox has encountered:

Darth Nox vanquishes the illusion of Rylee Dray while in his initiation dream:

Darth Nox vanquishes the illusion of Nomar Organa while in his initiation dream:

Darth Nox vanquishes the illusion of Darth Zash while in his initiation dream:

Force Lightning

Force Lightning is the manifestation of pure hatred and the dark side in bolts of lightning. Through this ability, a Sith can torture, incapacitate, or even kill those unfortunate enough to fall victim to this power.

Darth Nox is highly skilled in using Force Lightning to stun, subdue, or destroy enemies. Those who survive are permanently psychologically traumatized by the experience:

“Seething sparks of lightning explode from the Inquisitors’ fingertips and wrap their enemies in tendrils of pure Force energy. Because Inquisitors can twist the Force into lightning to stun, subdue, or destroy their foes, it has become their signature. Those who have experienced the sensation of the Inquisitor’s Force Lightning and survived forever recoil from the crackling sound of electricity.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Website

"Of all the dark arts of the Sith, little can match the spectacle and devastation of Force Lightning. Summoning intense discharges of pure Force energy, the Lightning Sorcerer overwhelms enemies with punishing damage from a distance, leaving them shaken and vulnerable -- if not dead."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Disciplines

Darth Nox can unleash powerful discharges of Force Lightning to ravage opponents before they even know what hit them:

"From the murky depths of the dark side, the Deception Assassin emerges with a calculated plan. As the Assassin presses the attack, Force Lightning accumulates within their double-bladed lightsaber and culminates in a massive discharge that can ravage the Assassin's opponent before they even know what hit them."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Disciplines

Darth Nox can disintegrate targets with Force Lightning:

“Sorcerers unleash Force Lightning from a distance, disintegrating their targets with powers like Lightning Strike and Crushing Darkness.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic (Sith Inquisitor codex)

Combat Abilities

Darth Nox is able to stand toe-to-toe with anybody in combat through his dark side power:

"Hate fuels the dark side, and no one knows this better than the Hatred Assassin. Able to command dark Force powers that assault many targets at once or sap an enemy's very essence from a distance, the Hatred Assassin can stand toe-to-toe against any foe."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Disciplines

Darth Nox is considered a great warrior by his apprentice Xalek:

“You are a great warrior. I will follow you to death.”

—Xalek (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Lord. You are a great warrior.”

—Xalek (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Darth Nox is considered to be a god by his apprentice Xalek:

“My lord. You are as a living god.”

—Xalek (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Darth Nox uses his dark side powers to annihilate anything in his wake and his lightsaber to cut down whatever foe may draw too close:

"Inquisitors unleash the dark side of the Force to destroy everything in their wake. Their single and double-bladed lightsabers destroy any foe foolish enough to approach within striking distance."

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia

Darth Nox’s lightsaber skills are just as impressive as his strength in the Force:

“An Inquisitor’s skills with a Lightsaber are equally impressive. Often wielding a double-bladed Lightsaber, Inquisitors use quick, guileful, and lethal maneuvers to strike their enemies down with astonishing speed.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Website

Prologue

After just landing on Korriban, Darth Nox defeats several failed Sith Acolytes in combat:

“Excellent. These former acolytes wanted nothing more than to earn their second chance for glory by killing you and taking your place. But your desire proved stronger, and their blood became the mantle of your victory.”

—Spindrall (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Darth Nox defeats two of his fellow acolytes in combat:

As a mere apprentice, Darth Nox defeated Khem Val, formerly the greatest Dashade warrior and servant to Tulak Hord, and forced him into servitude:

“Centuries ago, Khem Val was the proud servant of Tulak Hord, one of the greatest Dark Lords of the Sith to ever live. His people, the Dashade, thrived. A powerful species of Force-resistant killers, they drew strength from feeding on Jedi and Sith alike. Khem Val was called Shadow Killer and Devourer.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic Website

Khem Val is a near-perfect killing machine capable of defeating even the strongest of Force users:

“A near-perfect killing machine, he could prove a valuable weapon for anyone willing to take him on…”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic (Khem Val codex)

“Powerful, cunning and ruthless enough to slay even the strongest Force users, Khem Val was trained as an elite assassin. After emerging from his long slumber, the Dashade is the very embodiment of death and destruction; a reminder that there are things even Sith and Jedi must fear.”

—Star Wars: The Old Republic (Khem Val codex)

“They’re a lost race of assassins that the ancient Sith used to devour their Force using enemies. This one’ll probably eat you the moment he’s freed.”

—Overseer Harkun (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“…he is very dangerous.”

—Lord Zash (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

In the tomb of Naga Sadow, Darth Nox slays a Terentatek:

Darth Nox was believed to be capable of defeating the Sith Acolyte Ffon, a highly reputed acolyte with extensive training and renown:

“Meet our newcomer—Ffon Althe. This is real Sith strength, and he will tear you apart and crush your bones—slaves. Look at him! No connections left in the world, but pure Sith blood. This—this is Lord Zash’s future apprentice! Not filth like you!”

—Overseer Harkun (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Also unsurprisingly, Ffon has passed his first trial. It’s only a matter of time before he tramples you all under foot.”

—Overseer Harkun (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“You don’t expect a slave to be a match for me in intellect! I’ve been trained under the greatest teachers--”

—Ffon Althe (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Calm down, Ffon. I certainly do not expect this slave to be a match for you.”

—Overseer Harkun

No Caption Provided

“Let Gerr be an example to you. Ffon destroyed him easily, like he will destroy all of you.”

—Overseer Harkun (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Ffon has been training at combat his entire life. He was born to be Sith.”

—Overseer Harkun (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Harkun, you fool. In any other group for any other lord, this young man would have torn the other acolytes to shreds. What were you trying to prove?”

—Lord Zash (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“You know I could have taken Ffon. You didn’t need to kill him for me.”

—Darth Nox (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

“Yes, of course, but it wouldn’t have made that stubborn overseer respect your power. So I reminded him of mine instead.”

—Lord Zash (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

After passing the Sith Trials, Darth Nox defeats three servants of the Sith Lord Darth Skotia:

In order to retrieve a Trandoshan relic, Darth Nox fights through a secret base guarded by Darth Skotia’s apprentices, including a Sith Lord:

“The plans suggest Skotia’s apprentices guard the base. I don’t doubt they hold the keys to the Trandoshan relic. Best kill them all to be sure.”

—Lord Zash (Star Wars: The Old Republic)

Something considered impossible for a mere apprentice, Darth Nox utterly destroys Darth Skotia, a Sith Lord more machine than man and dangerously powerful. However, Skotia had to be weakened first.

“Wretched monster. More machine than man and dangerously powerful.”

—Lord Zash (Star Wars: The Old Republic)
