Taken by the Sith at a young age, Torik, like most of his peers, never knew his parents. He was taken as an apprentice almost immediately, as his master, a Bothan named Nuth Drey’la, was intensely interested in his Keshiri heritage.
Drey’la was a lenient master, as Sith go, to the point where Torik began punishing himself for his failures, when his master would not. The Bothan was interested in knowledge, more than power. He insisted that the quest for knowledge is the quest for power, but Torik would argue that if you do nothing with your knowledge, then it is useless. These arguments were some of the few times that Torik was actually beaten by his master. Torik grew to resent his master’s laziness, eventually deciding to simply train himself until the day he could rid himself of the Bothan.
But, his time with the Bothan wasn’t entirely wasted. Despite his apathetic nature, Drey’la was an accomplished swordsman, not the best, but not the worst either. He also taught Torik much of the force, and the different ways it was viewed in different cultures throughout the galaxy, and throughout time.
It wasn’t long until Torik surpassed his master in lightsaber combat. The Bothan was decent, but he didn’t have the will to be perfect. When Drey’la would teach him a new technique, Torik would spend hours or days perfecting that one technique, while his master went back to his studies. Torik trained with combat droids set to kill, he pushed himself to his limits and beyond. And, all the while, he hid his skill from his master. That is, until one day his master, having realized that he was holding back (though he hadn’t realized exactly how much), began to toy with his student in a sparring match. Torik flew into a rage, and nearly struck down his master. He would have, too. But, while the Bothan was only a decent swordsman, he was a powerful force user; The initial force slam into the opposite wall nearly knocked Torik out, and the wave upon wave of Lightning flowing over his body nearly killed him. But, his master spared his life, something that Torik vowed (once he woke up in the Medical Wing) to make the old Bothan regret.
As soon as he was fit, he threw himself back into his training. He wouldn’t have long, however, as it was only a few short weeks later that he was summoned by the Sith Council, and sent on a mission that would change his life forever…
Note’s on Personality: Torik respects power in any form. While he takes pride in this Sith heritage, he respects Mandalorians, and any other group that understands power and how to wield it. He also believes, as his ancestors did, that physical perfection is nearly as important as perfecting skills. He keeps himself at the height of his physical attractiveness, constantly clean shaven, in meticulously clean clothes, etc. Torik is arrogant, conceited, and likes to point out physical flaws in others.
He is a natural leader, taking charge of a situation whenever possible, and has shown himself to be a proficient negotiator, when the time comes. To his fellow Sith, he comes across as the stuffy, weak politician type, and thus is challenged to many duels, only for his fellow Sith to discover that he is much more powerful than he appears.
