If you hear Darth Nihilus face paint tutorial, there’s a good chance you have no idea who I’m talking about. So without further aidu , here’s a little about Darth Nihilus.
Who Is Darth Nihilus?
Contrary to what his mask might make you believe, he’s actually human. Now, don’t put him down as an easy character to beat. Even for a Sith, he’s a force to be reckoned with. But before we talk about the Lord of Hunger, let’s get into a little bit about how he got his title.
Before he became a Sith, he survived the activation of the Mass Shadow Generator, which unleashes the mass shadow (think ‘The Blob’ in space). He did survive (duh), but it made Nihilus crave force energy. Because of this, he became a wound in the force. So what does that have to do with anything? Because he was found by the Sith Lord Darth Traya. She promised him she would teach him how to feed this hunger for the force he had, and he took her offer. He accepted becoming her apprentice, and eventually became on of three simultaneous Dark Lords of the Sith.
Things were okay for a while until they weren’t. Darth Nihilus continued to consume the force, consuming planets, becoming stronger. He eventually became stronger than Darth Traya. The three ruled along side each other until the fateful day when Darth Nihilus and Darth Sion wanted to just outright annihilate the Jedi Order, while Darth Traya wanted to take her time… Let’s just put it this way, Sith aren’t know for peacefully disagree.
