[Modraught Malegaunt]



MODRAUGHT MALEGAUNT
    A member of Emperor Palpatine’s Royal Guard, Modraught Maleguant was born on Carida. Growing up on a garrison world, Modraught was constantly exposed to the Imperial military; the gleaming white armor of the stormtroopers, the crisp press of the officers’ uniforms, the precision and discipline. It was little wonder that, at 16, he lied about his age and enlisted.
    By the age of 18, Modraught was a stormtrooper and by 22 he was appointed to the ranks of the Royal Guard. Modraught trained hard, honing his skills and his body to become one of Palpatine’s favoured Guards. Palpatine personally assigned him to his palace on Coruscant.
    Before leaving to oversee the completion of the Death Star II over the moon of Endor, Palpatine had a vision of a lightsaber cutting him down. Not taking any chances, he issued special phrik alloy force pikes, that could be used to parry lightsabers, to a handful of his Guards.
    When the Emperor died, Modraught was in the Imperial Palace on Coruscant, unable to do anything.
    Swearing to avenge his master, the Royal Guard went rogue from what was left of the Imperial chain of command.
    Modraught is a tall muscular man with dark hair and piercing gray eyes. He carries himself with the confidence and grace of a born warrior.
