Biography[edit | edit source]
Ku-Kak was found on an icy planet. Phylus Mon noticed the wampa's Force-sensitivity and chose him for his menagerie. Mon then took Ku-Kak to his zoo, and trained the wampa to be his personal bodyguard.
Phylus Mon trained Ku-Kak in Chevin, so that the Wampa could not be affected by orders given in Basic. This made Ku-Kak immune even to mind-altering Force powers, except in the improbable case of a Chevin-fluent Force user.
Mon also taught Ku-Kak to hate the Jedi. To Ku-Kak's simple mind, a Jedi was any person wielding a lightsaber, and that person would be a primary target. At the same time, Ku-Kak learned to use his own Force powers to increase his battle prowess.
When Phylus Mon made Ku-Kak his personal bodyguard, he also presented him with a Sith sword. This sword became Ku-Kak's weapon of choice. Rumors of Mon's trained wampa bodyguard soon spread.
At some point, Ku-Kak became the owner of a green-edged lightsaber which had belonged to Jedi Knight Ish-Bel Tur. Ku-Kak gave the lightsaber to Mischa Vorfren, one of Phylus Mon's slave bodyguards. Ku-Kak also learned that, while Vorfren might be using a lightsaber in combat, Vorfren was not a Jedi, and thus not a target for him.
In around 20 BBY, Ku-Kak accompanied Mon and some of his minions to the Almas Sith fortress, where they performed a raid killing four Jedi Knights during one of Mon's schemes. Ku-Kak's huge footprints would have been easily noticeable, but a sandstorm outside the fortress took care of them.
Later, Phylus Mon, Ku-Kak and the survivors of the raid returned to Phylus Mon's mobile headquarters, the Animiasma. Unlike the other bodyguards, who stood in Mon's throne room with him, Ku-Kak was hidden behind a wall, so he could surprise anyone wanting to attack his master. Phylus Mon was attacked by a group sent by Jedi Master Lanius Qel-Bertuk.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Although the roleplaying adventure A Mon Alone was written by Morrie Mullins, it includes a gratitude note to "Jason Nichols, Ku-Kak's father." This might suggest that Nichols, probably the same Jason Nichols who is RPGA's Midwest regional director, created this character.
Ku-Kak's game statistics are mentioned as making him the most powerful enemy in the fight encounter. The gamemaster notes specify that Ku-Kak's appearance is optional.

- A Mon Alone (First appearance)
Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- The Living Force Campaign Guide states that the Living Force campaign is set one year after the Invasion of Naboo, an event that is dated to 32 BBY by The New Essential Chronology. As the Living Force adventure Philology moved the campaign forward ten years to the time of the Clone Wars, and the adventure Night's Homecoming established that by Year 4 of the campaign over a year had elapsed since the events of Philology, A Mon Alone can therefore be dated to circa 20 BBY.
