Personality: While still a dark-sider, Ravvok has a strong sense of honor and patience. He is a good strategist and a cunning warrior. He can be brash, but is mostly calm and collected.
Roughly 20 years prior to the Sacking of Coruscant, a civilian space transport called the Okedda crash-landed on the surface of Rekkiad. Living amongst the frozen wastes, the survivors of the crash limited their rations greatly. Amongst the survivors was a renegade Sith named Darth Elisstias Skathlonn and his wife Kasinda. Kasinda was pregnant with a boy, and Elisstias knew he would be strong in the Force. When the child was born, Kasinda died in childbirth, leaving Elisstias to raise the newborn. Naming his son Ravvok, (mixing the words Ravage and a variant on the word Havoc together), Elisstias could sense the Force flowing through the young child. Soon another ship came to Rekkiad and rescued the survivors, of which few were remaining. Elisstias slaughtered the crew and the rest of the survivors, and took his son to Raxxus. There, young Ravvok trained until the age of 13, when the Sith finally caught up with Elisstias. Worrying about his own survival, Ravvok took his father's lightsaber and slaughtered the old man. He also took his father's Sith holocron and amulet, fleeing away from his home. He ended up being caught by the Sith about 4 years later, and was taken to Korriban for training at the Sith academy.
Mixing what Ravvok already knew about lightsaber combat and his father's holocron,Ravvok became a top-of-class duelist and caught the notice of Lord Morva, apprentice to Darth Sindo. Morva saw the potential in the 16-year old boy, and he ordered that this young Sith be taken under the wing of Overseer Renval alongside a few other apprentices. Ravvok found that his father's lightsaber was unfit for the boy's style and disposed of it, taking a training blade instead. Then began Ravvok's formal Sith training.
Renval's first main trial for the acolytes was to enter the Tomb of Marka Ragnos and each find a specific object. Ravvok was assigned to find a tablet of some importance. It wasn't very difficult, as the only thing that stood in his way were a few crazed soldiers and some psychotic apprentices, and they were little challenge. Ravvok retrieved the tablet, but devised a plan to gain more prestige with Renval. Intercepting another acolyte on his way out, Ravvok killed the young man in a duel and took his artifact. The acolytes returned to Renval and Ravvok presented his double reward. Renval was greatly surprised to see Ravvok's cunning, and opted to keep a close eye on him.
The second main trial was within the Tomb of Tulak Hord. There were four artifacts to be found in order to weed out the weak. There were originally 10 apprentices, but when Ravvok killed one, there were 9 left. This was meant so that it was cut down from 9 to 4. Ravvok was assigned to retrieve the tablet inside the Red Engine, and so were two other apprentices. Ravvok cut his way through the atrium and arrived at the Red Engine. The two others followed, and when the two arrived at the Machine Vault, they saw Ravvok kill the K'lor'slug broodmother, and sprinted for the tablet. Ravvok quickly intercepted them. He brought his blade through one with ease and began a lengthy duel with the other. The duel was slowly tipping in favor of the other until Ravvok found a weakness; his opponent's left flank. Ravvok feinted right, then up, then went left and impaled his opponent through the side of the other's ribcage. Ravvok took the tablet and returned back to Overseer Renval. Of course, he wasn't surprised when only two others came back. A Rattataki girl, and Pureblood male. The Pureblood held two artifacts, copying Ravvok's strategy. Ravvok took the liberty of finally memorizing his name: Skolao.
The third and final main trial was to go into the Tomb of Naga Sadow and retrieve an ancient artifact known as the Rod of Vitality. Apparently Darth Sindo had found out about Morva's operating-behind-his-back and disciplined the lesser lord in some way, and now wanted a near-impossible-to-reach artifact as a subtle way to kill off all Renval's acolytes. Halfway into the tomb, Ravvok encountered the Rattataki and the two fought. Ravvok defeated the girl and fought his way to the supposed location of the Rod of Vitality. Of course, he saw Skolao on the other side of the chasm, already nearing the rod. Ravvok sped up and killed his way to the other side of the chasm. He caught up with his rival just as the other was about to grasp the rod. The two dueled, and as the scales tipped in Ravvok's favor, Skolao began throwing punches here and there meant to knock his opponent off-balance. Ravvok knew this would prove fatal for his foe and caught one of the punches, broke Skolao's arm, cut off his other, and finished by sweep-striking his chest. He kicked his rival's corpse into the chasm and took the rod. However, the ground shook, and a terrible sight to behold came forth.
Ravvok stood with training blade in one hand, rod in the other, facing the Sithspawn terenatek. It was massive, and seemed hungry as if it hadn't eaten in thousands of years. Ravvok got into his readying stance, left foot forward and blade over his head, pointing at his foe. The demon moved first, charging, and Ravvok slid under it just in time. He cut one of the creature's legs, but that only made it even madder. Ravvok had to use everything he knew to defeat the beast, and then some. Finally Ravvok found the secret. He dodged the beast's pounding fists, jumped, vaulted off the creature's head, Force-dashed under it, and, with a mighty leap-of-faith, cut upward. This sewed a massive scar within the Sithspawn and it roared out. Ravvok landed safely, blade ready, but the opportunity never rose. The massive, demonic creature fell into the chasm, and Ravvok left the tomb.
The young warrior soon returned to Renval and presented the rod. Sindo was watching in the shadows, and stepped forward to praise the young acolyte for doing the impossible. the Dark Lord took the rod and ordered Ravvok to slaughter the Overseer. Ravvok did as he was told, and was placed under tutelage of Lord Morva. Sindo had recognized Morva's hand in the recruitment of the promising young acolyte, and gifted the lesser lord with an apprentice of his own. Ravvok then took on his own lightsaber, a gold-bladed Sith Militant lightsaber, and it would serve Ravvok well for many years.
Ravvok was 22 by the time all these events took place, and soon took the path of the Marauder due to his proficiency with dual-weapons. He had learned the tactic long ago from his father's holocron, but kept it in reserve for after he had passed the trials. He constructed his second quite different from traditional ways: For one, the hilt was curved and it had a smaller-emitter guard which circled the emitter. It was steel-plated with black leather as a grip. Soon after becoming a marauder, Ravvok lead many pivotal actions, including the arrest of rogue Sith Bezno Kaviss at age 23, and an assault on a Republic ship that had stolen schematics for upgrades of Imperial ships at age 25. One of his more famous actions was the defeat of Jedi Master Kovan Trev'el at a skirmish above Vjun. But when Ravvok turned 27, he played a pivotal role in the takedown of Lord Morva's master, Darth Sindo.
Ravvok was soon given a plan of action by his master. Taking a strike squad of experienced lightsaber pike-wielding shadowguards into Darth Sindo's base on Hoth, the team assaulted the compound with efficiency. Ravvok went to confront Sindo, and when he did it was the hardest the young man had ever fought. Sindo was a talented duelist, but Ravvok had all the training of his father, a master duelist, as well as being taught along the road by Lord Morva. It took all of Ravvok's energy reserves to keep the fight drawn-out. Ravvok knew he couldn't hold up much longer, and for the first time gave himself totally to the dark side. In his anger and hatred, he discovered a talent he didn't know he could use: a Sith *battle trance. Calling upon the dark side for strength and agility, Ravvok put down Sindo with ease as the elder Sith was taken off-guard by Ravvok's new move. After the fight, the younger Sith was exhausted and could barely walk. Nevertheless, he and the strike squad returned to Morva, their mission a success.
Morva became a Darth a year after Sindo fell, and his first action was to make Ravvok a Lord. Morva gave Ravvok permission to choose an apprentice, but the young lord soon found that most of the acolytes were incompetent and relied on each other for strength, creating a weaker generation whenever they teamed up to kill their Overseer. He found that this was what was bringing the Sith down. He also saw that the Empire would've destroyed the Republic long ago if not for the infighting. Ravvok began searching, but to no avail, so he continued to fight against the Republic and, secretly, his master who had risen to the Dark Council.
