Character Bio -
Talon was a third-generation Sith, raised and trained on the ancient Sith burial world of Korriban to serve as the second of Darth Krayt's two Hands, Darth Nihl being the other. Thus, she had no idea of what life was like outside the order and had no purpose to her existence other than to serve as the executor of Krayt's will. A test of her loyalty came early when Krayt ordered Talon to kill her instructor, Darth Ruyn, who had just presented her to Krayt for final evaluation. Talon responded without hesitation.
She was then instructed by Darth Krayt to find and kill Emperor Roan Fel. She therefore went after his daughter, Princess Marasiah Fel. She planned on the Princess fleeing to her father, or Roan Fel coming and assisting his daughter. Then, at that time, Darth Talon would kill them both.
Talon discovered that Marasiah Fel was on Socorro, hiding within the Imperial Mission there. In her pursuit of Marasiah, Talon encountered and battled the female Human Imperial Knight Elke Vetter, who was Marasiah's guardian and mentor. After Talon incapacitated the Imperial Knight by cutting off her arm and leg, she interrogated her through the Force to find that Marasiah escaped with Astraal Vao, one of the local missionaries. Then, Darth Talon killed Vetter and pursued the two through a maze of burning buildings.
However, Marasiah and Astraal were able to outrun her and make it to Cade Skywalker's starship, Mynock. The two were able to jump aboard before Darth Talon could make it on, and flew to Vendaxa. However, Talon was able to sense where they were planning on heading.
Darth Talon pursued the Princess, Astraal, and the crew of Mynock all the way to Vendaxa, where the Jedi Wolf Sazen and Shado Vao rendezvoused with them. There, Talon set about sabotaging the unattended Mynock and setting explosives aboard the Jedi's transport. Then she summoned a herd of jungle beasts and used the dark side of the Force to direct the beasts into attacking Princess Marasiah and her party.
As the fleeing Princess and her escort, as well as the smugglers under Cade Skywalker defended themselves with blasters from the ferocious animals, Talon engaged the two Jedi, artfully dueling with them with a series of acrobatic flips and leaps into the air. The Sith Twi'lek drove off Shado Vao literally with a Force push, and then remarked to Master Sazen that Darth Nihl had marked him for death, and that she would finish the job. She electrocuted him with Force lightning, nearly shocking him to death if Marasiah hadn't drawn her own lightsaber and deflected the lightning. Cade Skywalker then used the Force to smash Talon with a large hunk of wreckage, sending her soaring through the underbrush of the nearby jungle.
Darth Talon was not killed, but instead was severely wounded. Darth Krayt felt her fall through the Force, and sent Darth Nihl and other Sith to reinforce her on Vendaxa.
As soon as two Predator-class fighters arrived, Darth Talon saw a great opportunity to make her move and make the kill. She now had both Marasiah and Roan Fel—or so she thought. The men that had arrived in the fighters were actually Imperial Knights coming to rescue the Princess. This was a disappointment to Talon, but she was not alone to fight her enemies. As soon as the Imperials arrived to protect the Princess, Darth Nihl and a group of Sith Lords arrived to make the fight even.
As the skirmish between the Jedi and the Imperials against the Sith started, Talon engaged Shado Vao in lightsaber combat. Soon, Marasiah was thought to be dead by her companions, but she was still barely alive. As the crew of Mynock, the Jedi, and the Imperials boarded Cade's ship, Talon attempted to board the ship as well, but was Force-pushed off by Antares Draco.
After the battle, Talon returned to her master, expecting to be executed because she failed her mission. But when she informed him that she had faced a Skywalker on Vendaxa, Krayt told her to bring Skywalker to him alive.
When Skywalker arrived on Coruscant, Krayt detected the Jedi's presence. Full of confidence, Cade infilitrated the Temple from below, releasing the Bothan Jedi healer Hosk Trey'lis. But Talon was in wait beside a long pool inhabited by an immense dianoga. She cut off their escape, disabled Hosk with a Force push, and engaged Cade. In the midst of a parry she revealed that both Jedi were wanted alive, infuriating him, and setting off the young Jedi's skirt with the dark side. He unexpectedly disarmed her and brought her to bay.
Unbeknownst to either, however, Darth Nihl was watching, though he had not been entrusted with the mission by the Dread Lord. He intervened, Force choking Cade and rendering him unconscious. Darth Talon, despite her apparent imminent loss, resented the intrusion. She prevented Nihl from killing her prize, but he went on to tell their master of Cade's capture.
After she brought Cade Skywalker back to the Sith Temple, Darth Krayt brought Talon, Darth Wyyrlok, and Skywalker into his private quarters. There he revealed Kol Skywalker's lightsaber under transparisteel, and he revealed to the three his true identity of A'Sharad Hett.
After Krayt told his story to Cade and Talon, Cade made a mockery of Darth Krayt. Enraged by this, Talon lashed out at Cade, attacking him with the Force, only to be Force-pushed into a wall by Cade. He then used his healing powers to re-open her recently healed wounds, almost killing her. Krayt ordered Cade to stop and heal her. Once Talon was healed, Darth Krayt ordered her to become Cade's teacher in the ways of the dark side. As she trained Cade, the two also shared a more intimate relationship, deepening the bond they had forged when Cade healed her. But Talon sensed that Cade was only pretending to be one of them. However, Krayt did not share Talon's concerns, as he felt that by pretending to be a Sith Acolyte, Cade would end up in the grip of the dark side.
Talon, along with Darth Nihl, was present when Darth Krayt killed Hosk Trey'lis after Cade refused to do so. Cade took up his father's lightsaber and began a duel with the three Sith Lords. Talon was the first to be incapacitated by Cade when she was stabbed through the stomach by Cade, taking her out of the fight.
After Skywalker's narrow escape from the temple, Talon was seen being tended to by Darth Maladi. She was then placed in a bacta tank.
