Many of the Sith Lords of the Old Sith Empire fell into obscurity, much the same as Kallig did. It's not impossible that there were other Twi'lek Sith...

When speaking with Talos Drellik as part of the companion quest line with him, you can find out

. Considering that Twi'leks

, they might well be now best understood as near-Humans and their ability to pro-create with Humans has come up in Clone Wars cartoon series. It's not far-fetched that Kallig's "pro-alien" sentiments led him to producing hybrid offspring, or that he could have had more mixed background than just Humans and Sith in his own ancestry.
Think of this: If you will play a Jedi or a Sith, now you will never get to take your apprentice to fight with you in flashpoints, warzones or raids. You will never face together any of the big end-game bosses.

The Revan novel states that, when the Sith fled Republic space after the Great Hyperspace War, they took with them slaves from captured Republic worlds, including Twi'leks. Because the Emperor decreed no slave could ever gain his or her freedom, ANY Twi'lek born into the Empire is automatically a slave.

A Twi'lek Sith Inquisitor is almost certainly descended from one of these slaves.

As to the question of interbreeding: normally, no, impossible. However, Sith Alchemy makes a great many impossible things possible. (You know, Sith Alchemy? The Dark Side power that other Dark Siders look at and say, "Damn, dude, that is WRONG!") It was used to allow the original Dark Jedi who found Korriban and the original Sith race to interbreed with them, so it COULD be used by to allow someone to make with a Twi'lek and produce viable offspring. Of course, the question then becomes, why go to all that trouble?
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

Here is the problem with that... Kalig was killed by Tulak Hord before the Great Hyperspace War ever happened. Before that war the Sith only controled a small handful of planets with non-Sith races, no mention of Twi'leks.

I guess, you just gotta assume everyone, everywhere, has twi'lek slaves.

Not all of the Dark Jedi exiles in 6900 BBY were Human, although considering the later status of Humans in the Sith Empire most of them had to be. There could have been enough Twi'leks among them to establish a viable population, whose standing would have declined as the Humans, Sith and Human-Sith hybrids would have become the elite - perhaps declined enough for them to become slaves already before the Great Hyperspace War.

That said, there arrived a fresh influx of Humans from the Tapani sector in about 5500 BBY, and the feudal Tapani Humans are notorious slavers even in the movie era, and they could have brought Twi'lek slaves with them.

When I played through as a rattatki (sp?) I went along with the things Kallig said. But on my twi'lek I decided to treat him like he was loony toons, so in that way it would make more sense to me.

No idea if its correct or not, but according to wookiepedia their were only 12 of the dark jedi exiles. And about half of them were known Not to be twi'leks. Doubtful that the others were all twi'leks. Would probably take more than that to have a viable population if they were.

Realy their is only one way it reasonably works and that is to assume that at least one of the dark jedi was a twi'lek and that the Sith had their own (unwritten about or unknown) source of twi'leks for that dark jedi to breed with.

good god people, stop assuming that Kallig himself was the one who introduced Twileks into the bloodline. It's quite a long time from Kallig to your character with any number of Ancestors who may or may not have been force sensitive so it's very likely that Twileks could have been introduced into the bloodline at a later point.

As for Twilek/Human breeding it has been established that Humans and Twileks can have children.

Where was this established? Pretty much most of the posters said it was impossible except under extreme circumstances (dark force alchemy and such as an example).

There was an Episode in the Clone Wars TV show which portrayed a Twi'lek human child and the only source previously which said Twi'leks couldn't have children was a book and according to the cannon rankings the TV show outranks the book.

Taken from Wookieepedia: "In the book Republic Commando: True Colors, it is stated that Twi'leks and Humans are not breed-compatible, whereas The Clone Wars television series has since rendered this moot by portraying Twi'lek/Human hybrid children, as clarified by the Star Wars: The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia reference book."
