Eldrak Korsin was a Human male admiral for the Sith Empire's navy in the time before the Great Hyperspace War. Korsin was a highly respected spacer, never losing a ship during his lengthy career. He had two sons, Yaru and Devore—Yaru followed his father's footsteps into the Sith navy, while Devore embarked on a career in the Sith mineralogical corps, and the elder Korsin thoroughly supported them in all their endeavors. Eventually, Yaru won command of a Sith dreadnaught named the Omen over the competing Admiral Korsin, and became a respected captain himself. Yaru and Devore eventually disappeared along with the Omen, after crash-landing on an uncharted planet during a mining mission.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Eldrak Korsin, a Human male, was an experienced space admiral who served in the navy of the Sith Empire in the years prior to the Great Hyperspace War. Korsin came from a family descended from Tapani nobles, who at some point became subjects of the Sith. The Korsin clan became valuable to their new masters, working in commerce and industry, and interbreeding with the Empire's Dark Jedi. As a result, Korsin was Force-sensitive, and he went on to become a highly respected spacer, never losing a ship in his long career. During his naval career, he served alongside his trusted helmsman, Boyle Marcom. He married a woman named Takara, and with her had a son, Yaru, who learned the trade at his father's side.
Unbeknownst to Korsin, he had another son, Devore—born to a woman on a planet somewhere. Devore eventually sought out his father, and the Admiral embraced him without a second thought. The revelation encouraged Yaru to pursue a naval career more aggressively, and he rose through the ranks to captain. Yaru's first command was of a newly-christened Sith dreadnaught named the Omen, winning control of the ship over Admiral Korsin himself. Although he had never lost a ship for the Sith Lords, he had lost one to his son, an occurrence that irked Korsin. As for Devore, a spice addiction derailed his prospective naval career, so Korsin sponsored his efforts to become a member of the Sith mineralogical corps. In 5000 BBY, Yaru and Devore, on a Lignan mining expedition, disappeared along with the Omen and Korsin's old helmsman, Marcom. In reality, they crash-landed on an uncharted world known as Kesh, where the Omen's surviving crew went on to form a Sith tribe. Korsin's grandchildren: his grandson, Jariad, and granddaughter, Nida, would be raised on Kesh.
Personality and traits[edit | edit source]
Korsin was an extremely reliable admiral for the Sith, never losing a ship during his entire career. Possessed of a ruddy and squat frame, which he passed on to his son Yaru, Korsin was very supportive of his children's pursuits, sponsoring Yaru's naval ambitions and Devore's efforts to break into the Sith mineralogical corps. Furthermore, he accepted Devore without a second thought, even after not knowing of his son's existence. However, he still held a fair amount of pride and disliked losing command of the Omen to Yaru.
