Desolous was a Sith Lord who was active in the galaxy long before[1] the year 35 ABY.[2] The Sith Eternal cult, which was active during that time, had a custom of naming their Sith trooper detachments after ancient Sith. The 44th Legion was thus named after Desolous—a name whose true significance remained a mystery to those outside of the cult.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Desolous was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary,[1] a reference book published on December 20, 2019 and serving as a companion for the film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker.[3]

The character originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where he was depicted as a Pau'an Sith Lord named Darth Desolous, and was created as an exclusive character for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable and Wii versions of the 2008 video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, developed by Krome Studios and published by LucasArts.[4]
