- "We are Children of the Emperor, like her. We understand what it means to be severed from him."
- ―Tannac, about himself and his fellow Children
A Human male was a Child of the Emperor, an agent of the Sith Emperor of the reconstituted Sith Empire, during the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Going underground with his fellow Child Tannac after the supposed death of the Emperor, the Child accompanied Tannac to the planet Voss to retrieve their crazed sibling Suri and help her block out the wounded Emperor's mental commands.
The Human male grew up on the planet Korriban, and during his childhood he was brought before the Sith Emperor of the resurgent Sith Empire. The Emperor transformed the youth into a Child of the Emperor, an extension of his will. In 3640 BBY, during the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, the Human went underground with a fellow Child named Tannac after the apparent deaths of the Emperor and the First Son—the Child who shielded his siblings from the Jedi Order's view. Blocking out the mental raging of the wounded Emperor, the Human Child and Tannac tracked down their sibling Suri on the planet Voss after she contacted Kira Carsen, a former Child who was now a Jedi Knight.
Locating Suri in the cave known as the Mind healer's grove, the Human and Tannac interrupted Suri's conversation with Carsen and her former teacher, the Jedi Master known as the Hero of Tython, who was responsible for the Emperor's apparent death. Speaking to the Jedi, Tannac convinced the two to let Suri depart with her siblings so that she could learn to block out the Emperor's voice.
Personality and traits
Behind the scenes
The unnamed Child first appeared as a non-player character named "Tannac's Henchman" in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare and LucasArts in 2011, during the mission "The Emperor's Orphans" for the Jedi Knight class. If the player chooses to fight Tannac and Suri, which will result in a loss of affection with Carsen, all three Children will die in battle. This article assumes that the player chooses only the moral light-side options as a Republic Jedi Knight character and therefore assumes the Child survived.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Jedi Knight Mission: "The Emperor's Orphans" on Voss
- Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia and comments from Charles Boyd place the Battle of Ilum and the finales of Act III for the class storylines in Star Wars: The Old Republic in 3640 BBY. As "The Emperor's Orphans" occurs after the Emperor's death but is still part of the base game, it must also occur within 3640 BBY.
- This article assumes that the Republic classes in Star Wars: The Old Republic choose the options that provide the most light-side alignment points.
