Star Wars Fringe Heroes
Malthos was a human male born on Derilyn during the Old Republic era. He joined the Jedi academy to leave the Elrood Sector. He later returned to the Elrood Sector in the service of Darth Rageus in an attempted rebellion. Rageus managed to dominate the sector either by directly controlling systems or by demanding tribute. Malthos served as both an apprentice and an aide de campe to Rageus.
Eventually, the Jedi Counsel and the Republic defeated Rageus and Malthos at Derilyn. When Rageus refused to surrender, Malthos killed the dark lord to ensure better terms for their troops. Rageus managed to kill Malthos in during his own assassination and the two became spirits that haunted the sith temple on Derilyn where Rageus’ army made their last stand.
Recently, Malthos has become Vek-Tor’s spiritual companion. He uses his knowledge of Rageus’ attempted rebellion to advise Vek-Tor.
