Darth Malak was a Human male who took the mantle of Dark Lord of the Sith during the Jedi Civil War. Before taking on the name Malak, Alek Squinquargesimus, nicknamed Squint, was a famed Jedi Knight and military commander, gaining a reputation as a headstrong warrior who would recklessly charge into danger. During the Mandalorian Wars, Alek drew closer and closer to the dark side, ultimately being seduced by Sith teachings imparted to him by his closest friend, Revan. In his role as Revan's chosen apprentice, Darth Malak helped his Master track down the devices that led to the Star Forge and contributed to the establishment of a powerful new Sith Empire, one that would go on to challenge the fragile Galactic Republic and Jedi Order both. After having "killed" his Sith Master, Darth Revan, and usurping his mantle in 3,957 BBY, Malak ruled the Sith unchallenged, brutally conquering territory after territory and taking an apprentice of his own, Darth Bandon, and later Bastila Shan. His reign of terror was finally ended when Revan, now a redeemed man, returned to the forefront of galactic events, and defeated him in a climactic lightsaber duel aboard the Star Forge, an ancient artifact of the dark side.
