Dark Jedi Student and Dark Jedi Master Jerec

"Jerec, the man who murdered your father, is a great evil. He searches for the location of a sacred place, the Valley of the Jedi. The Force of thousands of Jedi is trapped here. If Jerec captures this power, he will be a creature such as the universe has never seen. A supernova of stars in a fleeting thought—the eradication of life from a star system in a whisper—will be within his power."

―Qu Rahn as a Force ghost to Kyle Katarn

Jerec was a powerful Miraluka Jedi Master and Jedi archaeologist who turned to the dark side under the Empire, becoming a feared Inquisitor during the Galactic Civil War. Jerec was apprenticed to a Jedi archaeologist, Jocasta Nu, and became a Jedi archaeologist himself, versed in knowledge of the Jedi's past, especially the Sith. A Jedi Master during the Clone Wars, he was on a long-term deployment searching for ancient knowledge in the Unknown Regions when Order 66 was issued. Upon his return, Jerec was found by the Inquisitorius and turned to the dark side.

Dark Jedi Student

"A Dark Jedi, on the other hand, has much smaller ambitions. He—or she—thinks only of himself. He acts alone. The ultimate goal is not galactic conquest, but personal wealth and importance. Like a common thug or criminal, he revels in cruelty and selfishness. He preys upon the weak and vulnerable, spreading misery and suffering wherever he goes."
―Jedi Master Obba

Dark Jedi, also known as "Fallen" Jedi were Force-sensitives, frequently former Jedi, who chose to deny the light side of the Force and/or follow the dark side. Although "Dark Jedi" originally referred to a Jedi who had fallen to the dark side, it could also refer to uninitiated Force-sensitives who received no Jedi training but began their careers under another Dark Jedi. Others were simply dark-side users who did not follow the teachings of the Sith or other dark side organizations. In some cases, Dark Jedi also included "artificial" Force-sensitives who served the dark side, such as the Reborn and the Shadowtroopers. The first Dark Jedi was believed to be Xendor, who was the first member of the Jedi Order to fall. Other forerunners included Ajunta Pall and others who, after the Hundred-Year Darkness, were exiled from Galactic Republic space and became the ancient progenitors of the Sith Lords.

I made jerec a while ago, after reading up on his profile he became one of my favourite dark side characters. So i got the parts i wanted and put a jerec together, not down to the tea with the picture because i like to spin my own ideas and things into my customs, in the end it is for my own enjoyment =D. and then recently i made another dark jedi to be a student to Jerec, one of his young apprentices. I like the idea of dark jedi who arent sith and dont have to be kept within the jedi look. so here is my master and student.

Jedi Master Sev

"Sometimes the smallest fights become the biggest battles."
―Sev, to Joc Sah

Sev was a Weequay male Jedi Master who served as a general during the Clone Wars. During the war, he trained the Human Joc Sah as his Padawan. In the war's final year, Sev and Sah were sent to the Outer Rim planet Ragmar V, which was considered an essential staging world for the Republic's planned attack on a Separatist base. Sev remained aboard a Venator-class Star Destroyer and sent Sah on his first solo mission to secure an outpost on the surface. Shortly thereafter, the clone troopers under Sev's command were ordered by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to execute Order 66, a directive branding the Jedi Knights as traitors to the Republic. Sev managed to defend himself briefly, but was eventually slain by the clones.

Just an Idea i wanted to follow through with, bit of a paint job and some Weequay parts and heres my Master Sev.

Entry for the new Yakface Comp. Cerean SWAT member

Cereans were a sophisticated and cultured humanoid mammalian species that hailed from the planet Cerea in the Mid Rim. They had tall tapering heads, which housed large binary brains, enabling them to focus on many things at the same time. Aside from this unique feature, Cereans were physically similar to Humans, although they possessed an extra heart, which supplied extra blood circulation to support their brains.

A new entry of my for the Yakface alien law enforcment, this guy is a cerean SWAT member, little bit of a joke but he came up ok, just a few bits an peices with a repaint to finish it off.

My entry for the Yakface arena competition Toorn Vos

So here is my entry for the geonosis arena competition. And
with any original custom I make I thought this guy needed a back story
that all you readers would enjoy. So I came up with this guy, (I would
like to mention this character is purley fictional and doesn't exist
and his name, backstory and design are of my own ideas) a Kiffu
gaurdian Toorn Vos older brother of Qiunlan Vos and leader of the
Kiffu Gaurdians. Toorn was a fearsome warrior on his homeworld and
said to have been as force senstive as younger brother Quinlan though
he was never taken by the order as he was to old when his abilities
were discovered. When the gaurdians fought off an invasion attempt by
the federation under the lead of Toorn Count Dooku became increasingly
intriuged with the Kiffu. He travelled secretely with his Dark acolyte
Tol Skorr to Kiffu and asked to see Toorn, posing as Jedi the kiffu
gaurds allowed there passage to Toorns Quaters but upon arrival they
killed the gaurds and stormed his room, Vos had sensed them and was
already waiting weapon at the ready, utilizing a specially crafted
cotortis blade passed generation to generation. Skorr attacked and to
dooku's surprise was quickly bested and subdued by Vos. Vos proceeded
to attack dooku but was no match and was rendered unconcious by a
blast of force lighting. After the encounter Dookus faith in Skorr as
a capable acolyte was shaken and he saw potential in Vos as an
acolyte. Upon awakening he found himself in a dark room, a door
infront of him began to open and as he stepped out into a massive
arena loud ominous taunts filled the air. He looked across the arena
to see 5 warriors armed and ready, lead by a large nikto warrior they
began to run at Vos, he reached to his side and to his dismay had an
empty blaster holster, reaching for his blade he prepared, fighting
furiously he vexed opponent after opponent first killing the Nikto
with a quick and precise slice of the throat, fending them off as they
attacked without hesitation, but after only minutes he had emerged
victorious over the five combatants. He walked over to the Niktos
bleeding body the crowd roared for him screaming "gaurdian, gaurdian"
he picked up the niktos weapon and placed it into a strap down his
back and raised his fist in the air, cheers echoed. After the fight
he was met by dooku who gave him a box, Vos opened it to find one of
Dookus lightsabers in it, Dooku said to Vos "prove yourself, and you
will have your freedom", he then asked Vos why he took the Nikto's
weapon, Vos replied simply " my first kill will never be forgotten,
this weapon is a symbol to all I face, there is only death for them
and I will show no mercy". Many weeks in the arena saw Vos undefeated
though it had come with a price, Vos had fallen to the dark ways of
the force calling on anger and fear to fight. 1 long month went by and
Vos remained the gladiator champion, but another had began to earn a
name for himself, Vos was furious that another was earning a name in
his arena and earged dooku to set up the match, the young man he was
non other then QuinLan Vos Toorns brother in disguise. After hearing
of an invincible Kiffu gaurdian on the planet of geonosis he felt it
was Toorn and knew only toorn was capable of being that powerful. They
were to be in the same fight though Toorn knew not of the deception
nor did Dooku, but seeingy himself as virtually unbeatable he was now
a force to fear in the arena. The battle began and many enemies
circled Toorn now with large wages on his head to be killed many tried
but all failed, now using Dookus saber he cut down enemy after enemy
until there were only two. His glance firm across the arena at the
assailant, they began to run at each other and at the last second
Quinlan pulled out his saber and blocked Toorns attack, Seeing his
face under the hood Toorn was shocked. They stopped where toorn
expressed his remorse for his ways and dealings with the dark side but
Quinlan spoke these words " You are not dark my brother, simply deeper
in the shadows, and I will be your light in these times" Dooku looked
on but before another move was made they were on the run out of one of
the arena doors, making there way through the elaberate tunnels they
made there way to Vos's ship and made an escape. They travelled to
Kiffu where Toorn took back his place as general and left behind his
arena days and his legacey and readied for the day the gaurdians would
take up arms and he would once again defend his people.

Plo Koon as Jedi Knight

"He's an expert swordsman and a hard taskmaster."

―Qui-Gon Jinn
Plo Koon was a Kel Dor male from the planet Dorin who became a Jedi Master and a lifetime member of the Jedi High Council, holding the position from before the Invasion of Naboo to the end of the Republic in 19 BBY. During the Clone Wars, Koon served as a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Plo Koon was also an accomplished starfighter pilot. Plo Koon was shot down over Cato Neimoidia by his clone troopers, killing him in compliance with Order 66. His fighter crashed into a Clone assembly area, killing 141 clone troopers of the 7th Sky Corps.

One of my favourite jedi's i dont think there was a dry star wars eye watching on as Plo Koon was shot down along with many other jedi. with this guy i just wanted to see plo koon in a different set of robes and have a go at what we might have looked like in his days as a night.

Mandalorian General

"Warmaster, we think too often in terms of dualism: Jedi or Sith, light or dark, right or wrong. But there are three sides to this blade, not two, opposed and similar at the same time. The third edge is the Mandalorian. All three sides care nothing for caste or species, only adherence to a code that unites. The Mandalorians remain the most formidable enemy of the Jedi: but the Sith are not always their allies. The Mandalorians even worshipped war itself, then simply turned their backs on their god. You might begin to understand them one day."
―Vergere, explaining galactic politics to the Yuuzhan Vong
The Mandalorians—known in Mando'a as the Mando'ade, or "Children of Mandalore"—were a nomadic group of clan-based people consisting of members from multiple species and multiple genders, all bound by a common culture.

Now this custom isnt of the mandalorian shown above, its just so that people can make a reference between my custom and what some mandalorians looked like. The idea behind this guy was for him to be a front line general, one who lead on the front lines. took a bit of work but i really liked how it turned out and am pretty happy all round with him.

Darth Bane Refurbish

"I am the Dark Lord who will restore the Sith to glory. They call me Bane."
―Darth Bane
Darth Bane, born under the name of Dessel, was the Sith'ari and the Dark Lord of the Sith responsible for creating the Rule of Two. Born in 1,026 BBY, he was raised as a poor miner on the Outer Rim planet Apatros. After killing a Galactic Republic ensign in a fight in 1,003 BBY, he was in danger of being arrested by the Republic. With the help of his friend Groshik, Dessel escaped off-world to join the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness. Initially serving as a foot soldier in the Gloom Walkers, he was recognized as a Force-sensitive, and taken to the Sith Academy on Korriban. He studied there for a time, quickly becoming one of the best students before he lost his faith in the dark side of the Force. After a short time, Bane, as he was now known, was able to regain his faith and determination to become the best. However, he would soon lose confidence in the Brotherhood of Darkness, believing its leader, Kaan, to be a coward and a fool. Deserting the order, he studied the holocron of Darth Revan, and, armed with new knowledge, helped destroy the Brotherhood, allowing him to create his own Sith Order. Bane then instituted a Rule of Two, which stated that there could be only two Sith to avoid the infighting that had plagued the Sith for millennia. He styled himself as Darth Bane, and took as his apprentice a Human female, whom he christened Darth Zannah.

Ahhh Darth Bane one of if not my favourite sith lord ever, his background story, his accomplishments, his whole star wars life is awesome and one of the best to me. i didnt much like the figure hasbro put out, just a few little things needed to be changed. So i painted the transperant parts and gave him a full repaint. so here is my refurbished bane.

Quinlan Vos

"I am not part of the dark—simply deeper in the shadows."
―Quinlan Vos
Quinlan Vos was a Kiffar Jedi Master in the Jedi Order and a General in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. He hailed from the planet Kiffu in the Inner Rim Territories. With long, dreadlocked hair and a band of pale yellow across his upper face, Vos was gifted with psychometric powers which allowed him to "read memories" from inanimate objects through physical contact.Vos had an ongoing struggle with the dark side of the Force, particularly after he sustained recurrent amnesia after he overdosed on an illegal drug administered by an enemy shortly after the Battle of Naboo. The Sith Lords Darth Sidious and Darth Tyranus both showed an interest in him. He was a prominent participant in the Clone Wars, one of the few survivors of the Great Jedi Purge and, with his lover Khaleen Hentz, conceived a son named Korto Vos. Vos was openly disdainful to clones, which lead to him being disliked by clones and hated by Sergeant Kal Skirata.

Quinlan Vos is one of my favourite starwars characters, but i never really got into either of the hasbro figures or the new clone wars one, so with this custom Vos i wanted to keep his kind of rouge look while getting him in a set of jedi robes, i didnt wanted him to loosehis different look that he had from other jedi so i think this one worked out pretty good.

Padawan Survivor JIN-LO RAYCE

"I must see what my own Padawan, Jin-Lo Rayce, is doing. Lost in the archives or exploring the secret passageways, no doubt."

―Jocasta Nu
Jin-Lo Rayce was a Human male Jedi Padawan apprenticed to the Jedi librarian Jocasta Nu during the Clone Wars. At the conclusion of the war and the beginning of the Great Jedi Purge, Rayce escaped the attack on the Jedi Temple led by the Dark Lord Darth Vader. Rayce then evaded the new Galactic Empire's forces on Coruscant for a few months and eventually stowed away on a transport headed for the planet Chandrila, where he lived for a time. He then traveled to various planets in the Core, the Inner Rim, and the Mid Rim, in search of surviving Jedi. After concluding that the Jedi were gone, Rayce traveled back to worlds where various Force-sensitives he had met lived and began establishing cells of Force adepts. Rayce styled his group the Agents of Ossus, in memory of the Jedi library planet Ossus, which had been destroyed during the Great Sith War millennia before.

Injured and alone Jin-Lo made an escape from operation knightfall, a brave young padawan i really wanted to make my own custom of him. I wanted him to look as though he had been injured escaping. when i get a chance i will eventually look at making a Now and Then custom of him, and making a custom of what might have looked like in a few years. here he is.

Rebel Captain Torn Vero

"They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Naturally, they became heroes."
―Leia Organa Solo
The Alliance to Restore the Republic (also known as the Alliance to Restore Freedom to the Galaxy, the Rebel Alliance and, informally, as the Rebellion), was a loose alliance of planetary-, system-, and sector-level forces formed in direct military opposition to the Galactic Empire. It was originally formed by a group of Loyalists, united by Galen Marek, determined to preserve the ideals of the Galactic Republic. The Corellian Treaty and the Declaration of Rebellion formally organized the Alliance, and the crest of the Marek family stood as the symbol of the Alliance after his act of redemption on the Death Star. The Alliance and the Galactic Empire engaged in open warfare in a conflict known as the Galactic Civil War, which the Rebellion fighting restore liberty to the galaxy.
The idea behind this Torn Vero is he is one tough guy. An ex mandalorian he joined the rebel alliance after seeing his commrades torture innocent civilians to gain information. As a rebel captain he tasted the war as much as any in his time, he was one of the leading captains and lead many succesful campaigns  toin his time. so here he is Torn Vero.

Darth Sion

"Yes…of pain he has learned much. Of knowledge, of teaching, he knows nothing."

Kreia —
Darth Sion, the Lord of Pain, was a Sith Lord who lived in the time of the Old Sith Wars. As a Sith Marauder in the Great Sith War, Sion fought for Exar Kun's Sith Empire until the day he was struck down. Rather than die, though, Sion found that by calling on his pain, anger, and hatred, he could rise from certain death and achieve immortality, at the cost of all-consuming agony. With a body fractured and decomposing, but held together by the dark side of the Force, Sion survived the Great Sith War.

Darth sion, one of my first every customs is still a favourite of mine. Sion is one of my favourite characters and is a total mad man, he is like a force senstive zombie and would have been one hard bastard. so here he is.

Jedi Master Dooku

"The best of all would be the strongest student, yes? Wisest? Most learned in the ways of the Force? Best of all, Dooku would be! Our greatest student! Our greatest failure."
Dooku was a Jedi Master who fell to the dark side of the Force and became the Dark Lord of the Sith, known as Darth Tyranus. Born on the planet Serenno, he was the heir to vast wealth and the noble title of Count. Dooku was taken by the Jedi Order as a child and apprenticed to Thame Cerulian. As a Jedi Knight, he took Qui-Gon Jinn as his first Padawan, and later trained Komari Vosa. Dooku was a respected instructor in the Jedi Temple and one of the most renowned swordsmen in the galaxy. Only Masters Yoda and Mace Windu were considered to have fought on equal terms with him. Dooku spent nearly seventy years as a Jedi, but a disastrous battle on Galidraan shook his faith in the Order and the Galactic Republic. He fell under the influence of Senator Palpatine of Naboo, and left the Jedi Order. After learning that Senator Palpatine was secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, Dooku turned to the dark side and became a Dark Lord of the Sith himself, replacing the slain Darth Maul as Sidious's second apprentice. His new master bestowed upon him the Sith title of Darth Tyranus.

Everyone knows Dooku, and if you read his info he is one of the orders finest jedi. I always wanted to see a figure of jedi dooku and when i saw another guys custom i knew i wanted one, so I put some stuff together and made my own custom jedi dooku.
