Star Wars : Rise of the Order
Human Dark Jedi who opposes the New Jedi Order
Brakiss was born on Msst and as a baby, he was discovered by agents of the Empire to be Force-sensitive. After passing enough tests to save his life, he was taken from his family and brainwashed into serving the Inquisitorius.
Later, he became an agent of the insurgent Second Imperium which sought to restore the Galactic Empire to its former glory.
Having accepted the dark side, Brakiss became a Dark Jedi and was sent to infiltrate Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Praxeum. Skywalker, who knew the reason why Brakiss was there through his mastery of the Force, tried to turn him to the light numerous times. Since Brakiss showed great talent as a Jedi student, Skywalker felt that he could be changed and thus did not expel him as he had with many previous Imperial infiltrators. Luke was forced to fight Brakiss in a lightsaber ballte and then expelled him from the Academy as Brakiss fled.
Subsequently, he was tasked by the Second Imperium with creating a new cadre of Imperial Dark Jedi Knights to counter those of Skywalker’s Jedi Praxeum. He used funds appropriated by the Imperium to construct a cloaked space station called the Shadow Academy to serve as a mobile academy for his Dark Jedi. It was equipped with training facilities not only for dark Jedi, but also for stormtroopers and TIE pilots.
