Once a former slave under the Iskalloni on the planet Iskadrel, Antos Wyrick was one of many to be freed following the invasion of their planet by Mandalore the Indomitable. After slaughtering their slavers, Wyrick would later join up with the Mandalorians where he served them as a scientist.
Wyrick turned out to be no better than his former slavers though, as his unethical scientific research focused on his attempts to create an army of Force-sensitive “Mandalorian Knights,” utilizing the DNA of a Jedi named Arca Jeth. Wyrick was so desperate to attain results that he stooped to selling his own daughter, Chantique, to a slave trading organization called The Crucible. Afterwards, he would be forced to abandon his fake school on Osadia and rejoin the Mandalorian’s under the new alias, Doctor Demagol, a.k.a. The Mad Scientist of Mandalore.
Under his new alias, Demagol would continue his never-ceasing experiments to negate and/or replicate Force-powers for his Mandalorian Knights by dissecting captured Jedi on an asteroid base known as Flashpoint Station. A former Jedi padawan named Zayne Carrick working alongside his allies, the Mandalorian deserter, Rohlan Dyre, and Jarael would later destroy this lab. However, during the confusion of the surrounding battle Demagol found a way to incapacitate Dyre and masquerade as him for several months.
Thankfully, Demagol’s ruse would be uncovered and he would be killed fighting against his daughter. Despite his many efforts, Demagol ultimately failed to bring about his Mandalorian Knights. Incidentally, a few centuries later an actual Force-sensitive Mandalorian named Tarre Vizsla would be born.
Powers/Skills: Demagol was an extremely talented surgeon (albeit a malpractitioner), adept at using a blaster/other weapons, and he was a well-trained martial artist from being taught personally by Mandalore the Indomitable. Demagol was also Force-sensitive but lacked any formal training to teach him how to do much beyond telekinesis.
Weapons: His deadliest weapons were his intellect and his equally deadly skills with a surgical tool.
Look, mother, I’m in the dictionary: Demagol’s unethical experiments gave rise to a Mando’a word, Demagolka, which translates into either, “a real-life monster“, “someone who commits atrocities”, or “a war criminal”. It might also be translated into “a quack.”
This concludes the listing of the Legends of Mandalore. Next, we will continue this list with 20 of the Star Wars canon most prominent Mandalorians, including Boba Fett and Din Djarin from The Mandalorian Disney + series.
