For other uses, see Tempest Runner (disambiguation).

Tempest Runner was a position held by leading members of the Nihil, anarchistic raiders who were organized into three main divisions called Tempests, which each had its own Runner who wielded total control. Tempest Runners were responsible for leading their respective Tempests and lining the pockets of the Nihil in their Tempest, although everything in the organization revolved around Marchion Ro, the Eye of the Nihil, during the High Republic Era.[1][2] The role of Tempest Runner could not be usurped; if the Runner did not appoint a successor and was killed, the Runner's Storms would share leadership of the Tempest. Pan Eyta, Kassav Milliko, and Lourna Dee were Tempest Runners who worked alongside Ro during the time of the Great Hyperspace Disaster.[2]

Each Tempest Runner had a vote in Nihil-related matters. Following the Battle of Kur, Ro took sole leadership of the Nihil, though the Tempest Runner position still existed, albeit under his command.[3] Ro appointed Zeetar as the new third Tempest Runner after the death of Milliko and his Tempest during the Battle of Kur.[4] Around a year later, Eyta was presumed dead after the second attack on Cyclor, and his place was taken by Kara Xoo.[5]
