Parnax was a male Sith Lord of the Sith Empire in the years before the Great Galactic War with the Galactic Republic. Parnax was deeply unpopular even among his own family, and he spent his brief career as a Sith betraying every one of his allies and accumulating a long list of powerful enemies. Around 3683 BBY, Parnax, believed by some to either have been incredibly arrogant or incredibly stupid, deliberately broke into the Dark Temple, a forbidden Sith structure on the planet Dromund Kaas that had been sealed for centuries, in search of the key to the Sith Emperor's power. Parnax recorded his experiences in a number of journals, chronicling his descent into madness as he found himself unable to leave the Temple and discovered the Emperor's plans to extinguish all life in the galaxy. Parnax ultimately committed suicide, as he believed he could survive the coming darkness by merging with the Force.
Behind the scenes
Parnax was originally slated to be the focus of a Codex entry in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare, but the entry was removed before the game's release in 2011, and his species was never specified.

Notes and references
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 Using comments and information from The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2, The Old Republic: Annihilation, and "The Last Battle of Colonel Jace Malcom"—Star Wars Insider 137, it is possible to place the events of the Prologue and Act I for the Jedi Knight, Smuggler, and Trooper classes in Star Wars: The Old Republic in 3643 BBY, the general events of Act II in 3642 BBY, and the events of Act III for all classes in 3641 BBY. Parnax entered the Dark Temple forty years before the game, which results in a date of 3683 BBY, though the actual date could be different.
