"It sees."
―Nerrethel's last notes[src]

Nerrethel was a male Sith Lord of the reconstituted Sith Empire.[2] Prior to or during the year 3643 BBY,[1] Nerrethel grew interested in the structure known as the Dark Heart on the planet Voss, and spent two years studying the structure, comparing its architecture to that of the ancient Sith of the planet Korriban and analyzing the Dark Heart's orientation relative to Voss's constellations. However, when he attempted to visit the Dark Heart in person, Nerrethel was found dead on the border of the surrounding region known as the Nightmare Lands. His only notes from the expedition were the words "It sees"—for he had encountered the entity Sel-Makor within the Dark Heart.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Nerrethel was first mentioned in the Codex entry for the Dark Heart in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare in 2011. His species was not specified.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 SWTOR mini.png STAR WARS: The Old Republic - Question ! :) - Page 3 on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) places Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and Act III for all classes begins with the start of the Galactic War, which Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places around 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link), the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY. Additionally, Nerrethel spent two years studying the Dark Heart, so he must have begun studying it in 3643 BBY at the latest.
