- "A thousand Jedi died cursing Darth Desolous."
- ―Darth Desolous
He fought the Secret Apprentice inside the ruins of the Jedi Temple as part of a metaphysical test in the form of a Sith spirit.  His Master was Darth Phobos, who trained him via her holocron. Desolous fought with a single-bladed red lightsaber, and a shield able to resist a lightsaber. 
Behind the scenes
In March 2008, an advance review of the game The Force Unleashed described Desolous as a Sith Lord who the Secret Apprentice fights to earn Darth Vader's approval. This review also states that Desolous may also possibly be of the Pau'an species. A second review, a few weeks later, announced that the character is the first-level Boss in the Wii version of the game, located in the decayed Jedi Temple on Coruscant, but spelled the character's name "Desolus".
An image of Desolous, apparently from a German TV program,was posted online in March 2008. This depiction of Desolous is likely to be broadly accurate, as the same image also includes a picture of Darth Phobos, whose appearance has now been confirmed from one of the advance reviews.
According to a fan who has attempted to translate the dialogue, the same German TV clip also claims that Desolous is a former Jedi, and that he was trained as a Sith by the holocron of Darth Phobos. This resembles the way that XoXaan trained Darth Krayt.
