Patient Zero was the first Rakghoul created by Karness Muur. He was held in stasis in the Arcanum by Darth Acina until he was set free by Tagriss, a rogue Sith Lord in service to the Dread Masters. His status and whereabouts are unknown after the Dread Masters' raid on the Arcanum.
An unnamed male humanoid, "Patient Zero" was born sometime during the Golden Age of the Sith. Karness Muur, one of the first Dark Lords of the Sith, used Sith alchemy to engineer the Rakghoul plague, a highly contagious infection intended to be used to create an army of mindless beasts to rule the galaxy. This unnamed humanoid became the first person to be infected by Muur's creation, by having the Sith magic from the Muur Talisman used on him.
Thousands of years later, Darth Acina, a newly made Dark Council member, held him in stasis in the Arcanum, a space station used to hold dangerous Sith artifacts. However, Lord Tagriss raided the station by order of the Dread Masters and set Patient Zero free, leading to either his death, further spreading of the plague, or re-incarceration.
