This is my custom legacy storyline so far


Darth Devsta'rak Be'vyshtal (Zabrak Sorcerer) was the cruellest, most malicious Sith in the galaxy, after brutally killing 5 High-Ranking Sith; including his own master and a member of the Dark Council, and numerous other fools who had dared defy his will, he ascended to take his place as Master Sorcerer of the Sith.

He was intelligent and cunning; quite brilliant to be honest, and manipulated many into carrying out his twisted plans, though a few brave sources still speak of a young woman from Nar Shaddaa whom he fell deeply in love with after helping him take possession of a cult led by a greedy rival Sith.

Now you may make the claim this means he was still not completely consumed by the dark, but unfortunately for her he overheard the rumours that he was foolish and soft because of this; a notion I still find absurd to this day that Devsta'rak could ever be described as 'soft'. Repulsed by his only perceivable weakness he ended her life when they next met, this cemented his fall into TOTAL darkness and his slow road to insanity began on that day.

Being a Zabrak during his bloody ascent through the ranks of the Sith he suffered much discrimination due to his status as a former slave and the fact he wasn't a Pureblood Sith, so of course a few years after his rise to power he found endless amusement in taking on a Pureblood Sith apprentice and slowly warping and bending it's mind to his will.
{Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} added -rak to his taken surname in admiration for his master, Devsta was so genuinely pleased that his once better-than-thou apprentice had come so far as to officially take on both his last name and add a traditional Zabraki suffix, that he killed his apprentice's rival and pushed him harder into training determined to carve his own personal diamond from the rough.

Some say that at one point {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} Be'vyshtalrak was an even-tempered; if over-arrogant, promising young Sith, but through his cruel and conniving mental conditioning and harsh corporal punishment Devsta'rak slowly twisted {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} away from his old self until he had no will independent of his master's and was viewed as less than a proper Sith.

He introduced {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} to so many ideas and lusts, {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} gladly took the mantle of apprentice to the renowned Darth Devsta'rak and in his eagerness to prove his worth which wasn't immediately assumed because he was a pureblood, he grew more and more in lust with the spilt blood of his foes.

He grew to enjoy the pain and anguish of others even among the Empire's ranks, and eagerly looked forward to his next mission and the victim's demise. However one thing can be said for Devsta'rak's teaching methods, he made {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} the artful killer he is today and there can be no doubt {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} is very powerful, he could've been a true Master of the Force if not for his master's vice-like grip over his progress and his own unwavering, sickening loyalty to Devsta'rak.

After a few years Devsta'rak had many skilled assassins in his ranks; though none nearly as powerful even if they were more subtle, he tried to have {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} disposed of in the most challenging and dangerous way possible... and failed. {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} may have always been a faithful lapdog and tool of Devsta, but his master still respected {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} a great deal for his skill (though not as much as his first companion Khem Val the Monstrosity, who fell in an underhanded assassination attempt, apparently Devsta'rak actually grieved over the loss).

After many grand and bold assassination attempts; which they both grew to observe more as a friendly game between Master and Former Apprentice rather than a serious threat to {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut}'s life, he dialled it down a bit to {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut}'s disappointment; as he rather enjoyed his Master spending time trying to think up challenging situations and rare force-immune beasts to set upon him, and proposed he take his place among the Dark Council as a fellow Darth, so confident was Devsta'rak that {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} was so firmly ensnared and loyal to him.

He accepted the opportunity with immense gratitude and both Devsta'rak and {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} are rumoured to be amongst the Emperor's most favoured sons.
Then one day {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} took a Pureblood Sith bride and a year later, {Pureblood Sith Jedi} was born. Though moronic rumours of his true parentage abound as his mother, {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} AND Devsta'rak had a very close relationship and anyone knew {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} would never refuse his master something he desired, if Devsta'rak had one weakness; as showcased by his Nar Shaddaa love, it was women.

{Pureblood Sith Jedi} was raised to be a Sith from a very early age and showed great potential with the Force, what surprised everyone who knew his official father was his curiously agile and keen mind that more often than not helped him annihilate foolish opponents.

At the age of ten, he was taken away from his mother and father's influence completely and officially adopted by Darth Devsta'rak, who saw that this boy could become so much more than his weak-minded father with the proper tutelage and so with a falsely gentle hand he guided young {Pureblood Sith Jedi} down the path of the Sith.

But to his regret and great disappointment, the boy questioned him and the Empire's ways at every turn that wouldn't be impertinent, until one day Devsta'rak had enough of it and brought his mother and father to his personal training grounds.

He removed his mask of sanity and patience and revealed to the 16 year-old exactly who he was and exactly what a True Sith should look like, he tortured the boy for the first time in his training and pushed him harder in his training with his own father acting as the abusive overseer when Devsta left the estate.

One day after his father had scarred his face and back in anger at his questioning Devsta'rak, he turned away from the Darkness completely though he still retained a complex knowledge of their ways, it sickened him more and more with each passing day that he was born into this cruel Empire and held hostage by his simple father's master.

The final straw was when he pretended to show signs of turning to the Dark side of the force after a brutal series of punishments, his father was momentarily proud of him for the first time in 7 years (17) before Devsta'rak easily saw through the facade and decided to test him by having him kill his own mother, he tried and managed a torturous force shock that had his mother writhing on the ground in agony, but it horrified and nauseated him so much it was clear to see on his face the lack of resolve he had.

Devsta'rak enjoyed his mother one last time, before he ordered {Pureblood Sith Juggernaut} to take his mother's life and {Pureblood Sith Jedi} endured the sounds of the execution as he was led down the hall to a cell used to punish him for his failure. He resolved to escape them both, avenge his mother and fight the empire with his dying breath on that day.

On the first rare occasion that both the Darths had left the estate, he tricked a young servant into taking him to the spaceport and using his official/birth father's reputation he intimiated the guards into letting him through, he boarded a shuttle to the nearest neutral planetoid and sought travel to the nearest Republic sector for refuge, where after being thoroughly interrogated and suspected of espionage for a few months he was released into one of the more heavily guarded Jedi training programs and made use of his prior darker knowledge to the betterment of the Light; which he thoroughly embraced after the first few lectures and training exercises.

The Republic treated him with suspicion, but also with great respect for his prowess and the information he was able to pass on from his position as Ex-Apprentice of a Sith Council member, his ability to survive his father and his master's presence and still be a Jedi example to other Sith-blooded in the galaxy was only the cherry on top in the opinion
of his instructors.

But what he favoured the most and what truly identified him as trustworthy to the wiser Jedi Masters was not his vengeance against those who hurt him, but the serenity and healing he found in embracing the Jedi way and the peace that meditation brought to him. He was able to move on as much as a person can from the events of his childhood and though he still held a repressed righteous temper and a quest for vengeance in his heart, he would not abandon his new home and compatriots.

He could never abandon the Republic.

Our story begins as he reports for his first out-of-training assignment and embarks on a journey that will not only help bring peace to the galaxy, but also to himself...

It's a shame that the Legacy team didn't add in an option to replace Ally with Master/Apprentice for connecting two force users, still I'm loving 1.2

The very short version:

Vetinari Preatoru, Human Sith Assasin, during his travels has enjoyed numerous amourous trysts.

One, with a Miraluka, produced twin brother Victrix (Sentinel) and Vindex (Shadow); both 3/2 LS/DS ratio.
V & V's mother later married a Human Reclamation worker who fathered Laurigus, Cyborg-Vanguard; 10/1 LS/DS ratio.
Laurigus' cousin (father's brother's son) is a half-Chiss Gunslinger named Caecus, black-(blue?)sheep of the family; LS/DS ratio 2/3.

Another, with another human, produced Morttuum, Cyborg-Marauder; 3/2 LS/DS ratio.
Later, after another encounter with Vetinari, Morttuum's mother had Adeus, who enrolled in the Imp Academy and became a Sniper (Human); LS/DS ratio 1/4.
Morttuum's mother later found comfort with a human Smuggler, and produced Venatorum, Cyborg-Mercenary; LS/DS ratio 4/1. Venatorum, being a Merc, is the main info/goods conduit between the two sides of the family.
I hate violence. I'm just really, really prepared for Peace.
