Darth - Kaar of Whispers
Verrin came to Pravus Axiom in his early 40's, around 3,650 BBY (timeline), a shell of a man, insane, starving, malnourished, broken... one might argue whether he was sentient any longer. Months of suffering at the hands of a man named Dabon the Torturer had done that to him, as well as the knowledge that his family had been slain during an insurrection of Sith and Mandalorians. The Sith were expanding, as they were wont to do, and Verrin's small Outer Rim planet colony was simply swallowed up.
He had been a scientist - a bio-geneticist, in particular - and the Sith, after learning of his research at a local Lab, went to his home. There, his warrior-wife, Mal'Trizia fought like a fiend to keep her children safe - but she was no match for the trained group of Mandalorians, and was shot. Similarly, Verrin's two sons were killed at the same moment, his home was raided, searched, and then burned. When he arrived home later, that's how he found things... still-burning, destroyed. Such was his grief as he knelt beside his dead wife, that he didn't notice the Mandos coming up behind him. He was struck and captured, and brought to Dabon for interrogation. There, Dabon broke him - he told all he knew, but it wasn't enough to satisfy the sadistic torturer. That, and for some reason, Dabon's 'victim' healed faster and better than any subject he'd ever dealt with. Dabon soon found it a challenge to see how many times he could 'break' his new toy, and was titillated when it (Verrin) repeatedly came back from near-death.
But Dabon had welched on a deal with a Twi'lek smuggler. The smuggler, naturally annoyed with the piggish man, stole his 'toy', and escaped with him. But the smuggler wasn't the type to adopt a broken Zabrak, and she had no real affiliation with 'kind' people. As far as she could tell, Verrin should have been dead already. But she found a ghost-ship, floating in space, dropped the broken man there with some rations, and fired off a beacon before leaving - a proverbial babe on the doorstep... but for who?
A group of Jedi, and another one consisting of one Sith (Belhom) answered the beacon's call, and after a skirmish, the Sith won the day and took Verrin in, bringing him back to Nogatan and enrolling him in the Academy.

Verrin the Acolyte: (WIP)Edit
3649 - Verrin's first year with the True Empire - back then, it was called Pravus Axiom - was extremely difficult and troubled. His tortured existence under Dabon had left his vocal cords permanently (he thought) damaged, and he was unable to speak. With communication being a problem, and the usual 'patience' of the Sith in general, his first task became daunting - to pass the trials of the Academy, and in particular, Chamber: Pain. The blade master of Chamber: Pain was a man named Dash Thanos, who would one day become the Emperor's Hand, and eventually the Emperor himself. But at that time, his sole job was to introduce new recruits to the concept of pain and anguish, and how they played a role in facilitating one's connection to the Force. Not having any control over his own Force powers, Verrin survived the trials through intelligence and luck, and arguably the experience under Dabon the torturer's knife.
Chamber: Pain did something though - it showed Verrin that he needed to learn the Force, and quickly, lest he fall to more trials. Seeking guidance, Verrin went to the office door of then-Temple Lord Vakar Sadarii. There, he encountered a Falleen named Excrucio, who warned him away from incurring the attention and wrath of the Lord. Excrucio became an instructor of sorts, and eventually a bitter enemy. He introduced Verrin to a lightsaber for the first time, and through the help of his pheromones, helped Verrin get in touch with his emotions and how they affected the Force. But his newness and weakness with these new, mysterious powers made him a target for more capable Force using recruits, like a man known simply as Kaizer.
Kaizer had gone through the Academy with Verrin and two others: Ojaro and Gil-ch 'Fallenstar' Giauc. But while the other two showed what passed for camaraderie among the Sith, Kaizer saw Verrin as weak - barely able to use the Force, and not even able to speak, he was someone who needed to be squashed lest he sully the gene pool of the powerful. He plotted against Verrin by stealing Excrucio's datapad, and then trying to blame it on Verrin. But one of the Temple Masters, Drackonis, had an apprentice who took notice of Verrin. Her name was Hesina Valenti, and she would become one of the most influential people in his life. She caught Kaizer setting up Verrin, and cooly turned the tables on him. Then, seeing something in the old zabrak, she took him back to her apartment and began to teach him the ways of the Force.
It was Hesina who taught Verrin that the truly powerful Force-users of the galaxy were those who knew and understood all emotions, and not just the 'easy' ones of anger and hatred. But she saw that this older man, while he knew love, he truly had never embraced those darker emotions. He'd certainly never killed anyone, and so she put the responsibility of teaching that upon herself. She brought him to an abandoned warehouse, and put him in direct conflict - life-or-death - with another Acolyte. His success broke his hearts, and put a smile on her face. But she gifted his effort with his very first lightsaber staff - the one he still uses to this day.
Things were considered 'wild' in those days. Temple Lord Vakar Sadarii and his wife were known for their violent natures, even going so far as to drink the lifeblood of a Twi'lek child at their wedding. At the time, Verrin recalled thinking how he never wanted to become a Sith, if that was what they were like. But like most people and groups, the Sith had their extremists.
Verrin the ApprenticeEdit
Verrin the AdeptEdit
Verrin the LordEdit
Today, 3,636 BBY, Verrin is between fifty-three and fifty-four years old. The last fourteen years or so, he's learned the Force, trained as an assassin, become the Temple's Librarian, managed the Axiom Labs (under Emperor Lydeck), and taken on four Apprentices. His ongoing quest to restore his lost daughter to life is his long-term goal. His short-term ones include the training of his current Apprentices, Cimoreine and Vessker, the instruction of those seeking knowledge in the Force, and a possible love interest.
