||Darth Malak was a Human male who reigned as a Dark Lord of the Sith during the Jedi Civil War. Before becoming a Sith Lord, Alek was born on the planet Quelii in the Outer Rim Territories. When the Mandalorians attacked his homeworld, he escaped the battle and fled to the Galactic Republic, whose immigration records assigned the name of his home village, Squinquargesimus, as his surname. He was trained in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order and because of his name was hard to remember, he was nicknamed Squint by his fellow Jedi. During the Mandalorian Wars, Alek, Revan — his closest friend and fellow Jedi Knight — and their faction of Jedi disobeyed the Jedi Council and aided the Republic's war effort through scouting missions in the Outer Rim. He befriended the Jedi Padawan Zayne Carrick and, after taking the name 'Malak' in order to avoid an arrest warrant issued by the Council, assisted Carrick in defeating the secretive Jedi Covenant. As the war progressed, Malak became a military general and gained a reputation as a headstrong warrior who recklessly charged into danger. After finally defeating Mandalorians at Malachor V, they pursued the survivors into the Unknown Regions. There they encountered the Sith Emperor of the reconstituted remnants of the ancient Sith Empire and fell to the dark side of the Force under his tutelage, becoming Sith Lords.
