Name: Arkus Briar

Rank: Dark Acolyte

Tier: Middle 2

Background: Arkus Briar was one of Dooku's Dark Acolytes and was of Sith pureblood origin, having come from an extremely hidden underground group of Sith, who disappeared shortly before the Cold War.

In his early life, Arkus lived in a secluded settlement hidden within a cave beneath the surface of Korriban wherein he and other pureblood youngsters were brought up without parents and taught and trained far beneath an old Sith Temple. They trained in combat and were strictly shown the Dark Side of the Force, and learnt of how their ancestors used it via reading old Sith Scriptures.

This lead to him having an extreme interest in Sith artefacts, often searching for them in the few tombs that connected to their underground temple. Arkus built up his collection and used them to learn more of the Force, until one day he stumbled across a room in the temple that was reserved for the elders, and contained many more potent artifacts.

He came back to see them for months until curiosity got the better of him, so he took some from the Temple, thinking of the knowledge and power he could gain. This resulted in Arkus's banishment, which would end up saving his life given the temple and all its inhabitants would later be killed in the blast caused by Odysseus Baines.

Arkus would leave the planet on a half-broken freighter, and arrived on the nearest populated world, which would eventually lead to him attacking a merchant for his funds. This incident was the cause of multiple mercenaries attempting to track him down. This pressure forced him to flee offworld again, sacrificing most of his artifacts to buy a ship. Arkus, having been lost for a while, eventually tracked down the darkest presence he was able to feel, that being the Confederacy and Count Dooku; where he would join Tyrannus as one of his acolytes.

Weaknesses: Arkus tries to be as perceptive as possible in combat, trying to find patterns in everything. Thus, those who attack randomly and unpredictably can likely catch him off guard and gain an empirical advantage over him. Adding other environmental factors or things he would have to take into account will likely distract him, from which one could potentially get the jump on him. Arkus is a highly ambitious person, and can easily be tempted with the idea of knowledge and power. Lastly, Arkus’ large stature leaves much more to be desired in the stealth department, so one should try to force him into stealth-based scenarios.
