Gorima was a male Selkath who lived during the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire. Gorima, a famous biologist on his planet, was hired by Colonel Rian Darok of the Republic Special Forces Division and Darth Arkous of the Dark Council on the behalf of the Order of Revan. Darok and Arkous tasked Gorima with the creation of an "Infinite Army" using Rakatan technology fused with living beings.
Gorima conducted his studies in an underwater facility on Manaan. When he arrived to a satisfactory result, however, Republic and Imperial strike teams sent by Theron Shan and Lana Beniko fought their ways in the base and confronted him. Darok and Arkous, who observed the situation from a distance, then activated the facility's self-destruct system. Gorima died in the destruction.
Behind the scenes
Gorima first appeared in Game Update 2.9 of the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic, released by BioWare in 2014. If the player character chooses the dark side conversational option, Gorima is murdered by Jakarro. If the light side option is chosen, Gorima's life is spared, but he dies in the facility's destruction.
