- "Terrific! A hat with it's own weather!"

The Helm of Dathka Graush was a Sith artifact, presumably created by the Sith Lord Dathka Graush. It amplified the wearer's abilities to wield the Force, and possibly strengthened the Sword of Ieldis. It also caused atmospheric disturbances within a radius of six kilometers.
Like all the artifacts stored on Odryn, the ill effects of its dark side contamination could be safely contained as long as the helm was encased in nullification resin. Grade three resin was required to protect the surrounding environment from the relic's power. When the helmet was removed from its resin case for analysis, the resulting weather disruptions caused apprehension among the superstitious Feeorin warriors guarding the compound. The helm was destroyed in the explosion of the Sanctum of the Exalted.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Helm of Dathka Graush was first seen in Tales of the Jedi: Golden Age of the Sith, where a flashback showing the arrival of the Exiles on Korriban has a Sith lord being worshipped by members of his species. Since the helm from the Knights of the Old Republic comics is obviously based on this depiction, it is possible that the comic has assigned the initial picture as a depiction of Dathka Graush.
However, in Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side, it is revealed that the character depicted is actually Hakagram Graush, presumably Dathka's descendant. This doesn't completely deny that the helm is the same depicted in both comics, since it could have been passed down from Dathka to Hakagram.
