16. Darth Nihilus
Darth Nihilus is a character that is most notably from the video game Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. Fans loved it, and the game was a success. One of the reasons for it’s success, was it had awesome characters like Darth Nihilus. He was still very young, when a super weapon called “Mass Shadow,” destroyed his home planet. He survived, but was trapped by a shadow that engulfed the planet. The shadow made him ill, that with the grief of losing everything, gave him an empty feeling.
Eventually, he discovered how to cure that feeling, by sucking the force out of other survivors. Doing so killed whoever he was feasting force energy from, and it bothered him at first. It wasn’t very long before the guilt subsided and he sucked the force from anything he could find. It was an addiction to Nihilus, the life-force made his emotional and physical pain go away. It also made him extremely powerful.
He is one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars galaxy. If he was featured in anything I would be excited, but If he got a standalone film, I would flip out! It’s a long shot, but you just never know.
