Could he be Abeloth? Sounds kinda almost exactly like Abeloth in another form.

No. Abeloth would not be the emperor.

Follow the link to learn about the Emperor. It's not a thread by myself. I gave Rayla_Felana the go-ahead to make a thread as a part of my Index.

he wants to know who the emperor is in this game, not some fan fic about himself.

It's not a fan fic, its a dossier on the Emperor. And no, he was not Abeloth (who was female). But Tenebrae, the illegitimate son of Lord Dramath of Medriaas who took the title soon before the Great Hyperspace War and after that took the survivors of the war to Dromund Kaas. The reason he is so powerful is because he performed a ritual on his home planet of Medriaas (which became Nathema - being from anathema meaning cursed) which killed everything on the planet and made him 'immortal'.

It just sounds so much like Abeloth though, I mean, doesn't Abeloth also possess beings. Could be the ritual simply allows Abeloth to posses him. I mean, feeding on force users, wanting to destroy EVERYTHING. Being ridiculously powerful. Its all mainstays of Star Wars biggest baddest evil, which from point dot is Abeloth.

It would suck. Because you know, Abeloth is boring and a parody of a D&D monster, but still.

Abeloth at this point is imprisoned within the Maw still, and as far as I know, there is no way to get out. What we know is that the Emperor is a man, he is old, and he is very powerful due to his Mastery of the Dark Side. That is all certain.

I can see a few holes in there though. Possessing someone doesn't change their physical appearance, which is something Abeloth does, possession I mean. That he's old just means he aged. That he is very powerful can be attributed to Abeloth.

I'd say the biggest thing is that SW has proven before they have no issue with using bits of extended universe and completely ignoring others. Example, Chiss being involved with the sith at this point in history, Rakata being involved at all, Sith purebloods existing in this time period etc etc. Bioware is infamous for taking things it likes, and ignoring others, just like LucasArts.

I'm not gonna discount the emperor being Abeloth. I wouldn't also believe anything regarding the emperor's indentity unless it's a confirmed legit Lucas Arts/Disney or Bioware resource. Not extended universe.
