The mask of Darth Nihilus looks a lot like a Kaleesh mask. Did he steal one from a Kaleesh or something?

He might have been a Kaleesh for all we know.

No, because you can clearly see his jaw under the cloth, and it's humanoid.

And the mask is too small to be a Kaleesh mask, I think, but interesting thought.

You can just barely make out facial structure, that is it.

And we don't know nearly enough about Kaleesh attire to make such an assumption.

Well the Wookiepedia page dictates him as human, but if the mask is Kaleesh he himself could be from Kalee.

The Kaleesh didn't exist when KOTOR II: TSL came out.....*Thinks of that one Marvel Star Wars Story* Well not in their present form with the masks.... Hence he isn't a Kaleesh. Unless Lucasarts and Bioware comes out and says he was a Kaleesh, he isn't one. Just some guy wearing a white mask.....who consumes the force. The Kaleesh (In Present Form) weren't invented until sometime after Revenge of the Sith to explain Grievous's backstory.

He has hair, and I didn't think Kaleesh had hair.

You don't see it in the game, but it's on the back of the action figure. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Nihilus_Dreads.jpg

That said, it's possible he picked up the mask and wore it regardless of his heritage. After all, Revan's mask is a Mandalorian mask, but he's not Mandalorian.

He was a human.

Most likely the mask was inspiration for the Kaleesh's masks.

Hey - Nihilus was a Rasta????!!!!!
Maybe his Life Draining was a way of getting people to 'Chill' and 'Take it Easy'....
