"Cultured, cunning and utterly ruthless, Rycus Kilran may be the greatest naval strategist the Empire has ever seen. Born to a wealthy family with a proud military tradition, Kilran proved himself (to no one’s surprise) a capable right-hand man to the Sith during the Empire’s early assaults on the Brema Sector. When his Sith superior died during the Battle of Ord Ibanna, however, Kilran showed that he was more than an able tactical advisor–he assumed command of the ragged Imperial fleet and led it to a swift and decisive victory. In the years that followed, Kilran’s authority grew with his list of triumphs, and both the Sith and the Minister of War learned respect for his unorthodox strategies. His brutally effective strikes during the final days of the war earned him the title “the Butcher of Coruscant” among Republic civilians (a name he adopted with characteristic irony), and his heroic stand against a Jedi boarding party earned him his scars. After the war ended, he was granted the honorary title “Grand Moff” in recognition of his contributions."
―In-game Codex (Persons of Note)[src]

Rycus Kilran is a Grand Moff of the Sith Empire. He is best known for his role during the Sacking of Coruscant, which earned him the nickname of the "Butcher of Coruscant", and as the pacifier of the Togruta Uprising.

Biography

Background

Born on Dromund Kaas to a  wealthy family with a proud military tradition, Kilran grew into a creative strategist and military leader. He proved himself, to no one's surprise, a capable right-hand man to the Sith during the Empire's early assaults on the Brema Sector. When his Sith superior died during the Battle of Ord Ibanna, however, Kilran showed that he was more than an able tactical advisor—he assumed command of the ragged Imperial fleet and led them to a swift and decisive victory....several times over.

Becoming a Grand Moff

"My name is Rycus Kilran. I'm commander of the Fifth Fleet, second to the Minister of War, and—my personal favorite—the so-called "Butcher of Coruscant.""
―Rycus Kilran. — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

In the years that followed, Kilran's authority grew with his list of triumphs, and both the Sith and the Minister of War learned respect for his unorthodox strategies. His brutally effective strikes during the final days of the war, as well as his tactics during the Sacking of Coruscant, earned the Captain the nickname "the Butcher of Coruscant" among Republic civilians, a name he adopted with characteristic irony. His heroic stand against a Jedi boarding party earned him his scars. After the war ended, he was granted the honorary title Grand Moff in recognition of his contributions.

The Cold War

"You disobeyed a direct order from Grand Moff Kilran"
Sith Warrior to Captain Revinal Orzik[src]

After the time of the Great Galactic War, Moff Kilran ordered Revinal Orzik, captain of the Black Talon, to intercept a Republic warship, the Brentaal Star, and eliminate the wanted passenger aboard. When Captain Orzik refused to carry on what he saw as a suicide mission, Kilran sent a small team of operatives to take care of the situation, even while dealing with a boarding party sent against him from a small vessel, the Esseles. Towards the end of the Cold War, Kilran was charged with maintaining the prison within Maelstrom Prison where the Sith Emperor had held a powerful prisoner - the Jedi Master Revan - for three hundred years. He was confronted by the same Republic strike team from the Esseles, now dispatched by Master Oteg. The team had obtained a Gree Computer to navigate the Maelstrom from the Imperial base on Taral V, despite Killran's efforts to bombard the planet before they could successfully escape.

The Maelstrom Prison

"My lord, I promised to rid you of this nuisance. This embarrassing farce ends here."

Impressed and infuriated by the persistence of the Republic team, Kilran informed Darth Malgus - who was watching from a nearby holoterminal - that he would put the intruders out of his misery. Malgus ordered him to focus solely on preserving the prisoner, but Kilran elected to attack anyway, believing he could deal with the problem. In the end, however, he proved unable to withstand the assault as the Republic forces put an end to the Butcher of Coruscant.

Upon his death, Kilran was succeeded by Grand Moff Ilyan Regus.
