1,000 years ago Malzanorian was a Jedi apprentice fighting against the Sith Warlords. Paranoia regarding Sith influence among the Jedi was rampant and Malzanorian was accused of being a “darksider.” Removed from the Jedi Order and sentenced to life imprisonment, Mal was en route to prison when his ship was lost. As is customary when transporting darksiders at the time, Mal was held in stasis on board ship where he is found at the beginning of the campaign.
Mal’s time among the Jedi was brutal and violent. He and his Master, Jedi Knight Kintara Brace, found themselves in direct conflict with a never ending stream of Sith Forces. Mal took much life and it left a mark. When Kintara fell to a powerful Sith Lord, Mal assumed he too would die, but Darth Riven spared him with little more than a laugh.
The Jedi Inquisitors did not believe Mal’s story. How could a padawan survive when the legendary Kintara Brace had died? The Force revealed Dark Side taint on Mal and they concluded that he had struck a deal with the Sith Lord. Mal did little to defend himself, stoically refusing to enter a plea at his trial. He said only this, “We know neither ourselves nor our enemy. How can we hope to prevail?”
