Name: Darth Crusade
Weapons: double ended lightsaber
Ship (if any): Darth Crusade's personal ship use to belong to the infamous Darth Maul. Guided by the force, Darth Crusade stumbled upon the ship being sold at a shipyard nearby the Unknown Reigon. Darth Crusade could still feel Darth Maul's presence in the ship and the ship radiated his hatred and fed Darth Crusade. He stole it after killing the old owner and has now replaced his relic of a ship. Darth Crusade has renamed the ship the Crusaders Arrow.
Appearance: Darth Crusade is a human rarely seen out of his suit, thus prompting those to believe he is as pale as can be. Crusade has had many cyber implants made to his body to give himself increased abilites overall on top of his mastery force powers, but nothing to hinder his connection to the force.
Darth Crusade is a Sith Lord who's origins date back as far as 4,000 years BBY and maybe even further.
3,681 BBY - 3,653 BBY
One of Darth Crusade's greatest achievement and contribution to the Sith Empire was the strategic planning he composed that resulted in the sacking of Coruscant during the Great Galatic War that Darth Malgus later led. All had gone according to plan, having the Mandalorians blockade Coruscant long enough to deprived them of much needed supplies, start a false peace negoation and then stabbed the Republic when they were weakest, but alas the Sith Emperor's next choice of action took a turn in the wrong direction. Continued peace talk was not Darth Crusade's original plan, Darth Crusade tried to reason with the Dark Council that the Republic was on its knees and all they need to do was to put the plasma bolt between its eyes. Darth Crusade had much influence with the Sith Empire and on the Dark Council, but not enough to sway the Emperor or all of the council. Darth Crusade decided to bide his time and would gain control of the Empire and continue his campaign against the Republic later on.
While the peace treaty had been signed and the territory taken care of, Darth Crusader gathered those loyal to his cause to end the Emperor's weak rule and to instate his, but his plans were foiled when a spy informed the Emperor. Darth Crusade originally planned to be excuted was instead banished with his followers, the Emperor afraid to start a civil war within the Empire and allow the Republic to break the peace treaty and force the Empire into a retreat. Darth Crusade brought the loyalists back to his private retreat deep within the unknown reigon and unknown to all other Sith. Over the next year he oversaw the his loyalists incased in carbonite across the Galaxy at hidden locations, his fleet put into hibernation and scattered across the stars. With everything set in motion, Crusade entered a force hibernation, perserving him for as long he needed until the time for him to come back into the Galaxy presented itself.
The battle of the Second Death Star are currently coming to a fold, Darth Vader has redeemed himself and fufilling the chosen one prophecy by killing Darth Sidious, but sends ripples of the now balance force throughout the Galaxy. These ripples have made their way deep into the Unknown Regions to Darth Crusade's private retreat and he is awaken from his long slumber. With his connection to the force being unmatched, Crusade may have been away from the Galaxy, but he has seen all that has transpired during his long slumber. Now he emerges from his meditation state enraged at the failure of the Empire again and again. He has takes it upon himself to start the first Sith Crusade of the Galaxy and to eradicate all Jedi and to exterminate the Republic once and for all. His armies and star ships have been reactivated, and now are now named the Sith Crusaders to honor their new Emperor Darth Crusade. They all have sworn their alliegance under the new banner the Crusading Empire. Now Crusade plans his attack across the galaxy and to finish the Great Galatic War 4,000 years later.
