A nightmare come true...
|Title(s)||Lord of the Sith|
|Faction||The Cult of Darth Phobos|
|Alignment||-5 - The Hidden Fear|
Darth Phobos is a boss character from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. She is seen only in the PSP, PS2 and Wii versions of the game, however. The player who took-up Phobos has had her since July 13, 2010, and was the first to do so.
Born on the ancestral Sith burial-world of Korriban, Phobos was trained in the ways of the Dark Side of the Force after the Old Sith Wars. During that time, she had learned to dive into the mind of others – bending it to her desires, until she learned how to break it. Soon after, she was given the title of “Sith Lord,” which means “a high-ranking member of the Sith and their races.” Phobos killed many of her rivals, however, to achieve this rank. As time passed, the Sith betrayed her, trying to destroy her ship in low orbit – but she survived and left Korriban.
Decades later, the betrayed Sith formed a fanatical religion: The Cult of Darth Phobos. As their goddess, the cult assassinated powerful Jedi Masters and Sith Lords alike, as well as recruiting more members, in Phobos’ name. After hearing tales, the Sith began to suspect that the she had somehow returned from the dead, and began referring her only as “The Hidden Fear.” Realizing that Phobos and her slaves posed a major threat to the galaxy, the Jedi AND the Sith joined forces in order to bring her down. She was thought to be killed in battle after a confrontation with Jedi and Sith, but they were wrong…
The Sith first made herself known, at least to the general public, by attacking a Flotilla vessel in broad daylight, her plan nothing more complex than murder. While she was brought down quickly enough, Phobos managed to escape, leaving behind a feeling of dread despite her failure.
Learning of this, Shizuru deigned to both inform the Sith of a great boon for her and enlist her for a task involving it: kidnapping Amaterasu of the Noblesse Oblige and bringing her here. If she did this, she would be well rewarded - not to mention Phobos' ultimate goal, that of becoming a legendary Sith'ari by draining a true god's power.
Phobos may have intimidated ordinary civilians, but she couldn't hope to attack an entire castle on her own. Fortunately, there was someone nearby who could help: Deadpool, who was, unknown to Phobos, allied directly with Shizuru.
“…True terror has overcome this place… it cannot be averted." - Phobos before combating Michael Wilson and Optimus Prime.
