A true architect of genocide, Krall is a fanatically loyal and brutal officer of the Imperial Army, as well as a Lord within the Order of the Dark Hand. He can be somewhat overbearing and meticulous, considering others as for the most part inferior in ability. Usually civil to those who converse with him, he is however known to consider the majority of his relationships as temporary. With a somewhat biting conversational attitude combined with a fascination of philosophy, he is prone to engage in lengthy arguments about even the slightest of details.
Geno Krall was born into a relatively lower-class Imperial family from Corellia, guided from an extremely young age to a career in the military. He excelled with uncanny success, and achieved minor fame in his local district for the title of unchallenged boxing champion. Working closely alongside the local Imperial Academy, Geno forged a number of useful links with future superiors for his civil work, as well as the occasional guided vigilante raids. By the time he reached the required age of entry for the Imperial Academy, he had some form of friendship with every level of the local garrison. However, his father, a badly mutilated Clone War veteran, remained adamant that the Imperial enrolement age was unsuitable for his son. Insisting in a dozen furious arguments that he postpone entry for another two years, it was then that Geno abandoned his family and home. Despite his defiance, he heeded his father's advice and made the difficult decision to avoid the Imperial Academy.
Later in the year, he joined the Royal Hapan Support Corps intending to improve his skills at the helms of larger ships and to become the gifted Captain his father had once been. After continued work with the Hapes Consortium, Krall had finally built up the finances neccessary to travel - as suggested by his father. Visiting over 50 different planets in the galaxy, he picked his way through one war-torn, desolate, unstable and corrupt sphere after another. The individuals he met all spoke of the Galaxy-wide damage caused by the Clone Wars, all voicing their desperate resistance to another Republic. During his exploration, he developed a certain penchant for archeology and artifact collection, a passion he still maintains. Finally, he returned to Coruscant, convinced of the neccessity of an Empire.
The Imperial Entanglement
Setting up shop as a 'rare art' dealer, Geno established a number of questionable contacts, bordering on a minor smuggling operation. Inevitably the day came when the local security detatchment raided one of his larger warehouses, forcing him to abandon the small syndicate. In doing so, he gave the names of over a dozen local criminals in exchange for entry into the Imperial Academy. After a lengthy proccess of background checks and examinations, he was eventually accepted on the terms that his entire collection be confiscated and destroyed. Reluctantly accepting, Geno finally entered the Imperial Army as part of the notorious Hellhounds. After a short time, and after his successful impromptu arrest of a New Imperial Order spy, he was offered employment into the DII. Passing the notoriously rigorous entrance exam, he was accepted into the organisation and served part-time under the leadership of Alexander Fel. From that point on, he relentlessly began raising the ranks, obtaineing prestigious awards such as the coveted 'Medal of Merit'. Within the Army itself, he made numerous friendships with talented individuals such as Mintaka Kyuzo, Mark Ein Arton and Graeda L`Annan.
In the early months of the ninth Galactic Standard Year, Geno abruptly left the Empire with no obvious motive. After some time, it was discovered that he had rekindled his love of archeology, as well as the instinctive Corellian wanderlust. He kept a number of strong links with the Empire, at one point becoming an official Imperial Citizen and entering into a minor trading system with several Imperials. Engaging in the recovery of numerous items of almost legendary rarity, he was spotted on nearly a hundred planets, often meeting contacts or visitng various experts.
Return to the Empire
Krall returned to the Imperial Army along with a set of intricate cybernetic jaw and facial attatchments, as well as a brutal new outlook on the galaxy. How he recieved the wounds which lead to the neccessity of the mechanical parts is still unknown, and he refuses outright to speak of the subject. It is now known, however, that the injuries were sustained on the planet Basilisk in the Moddell sector. He served briefly under the command of Zenchi Senkusha, who was eventually arrested on the grounds of treason. Graeda L'Annan then took control as Commanding Officer, encouraging the Legion to undergo strict restructuring. Under her command the Hellhounds were boosted considerably, earning the 'Legion of the Month' award and finally filling the vacant positions left by the former traitorous soldiers Galven Corse and Alsten Jorel. Some time before her arrival, however, Krall was strangely removed from active service without notice. His true location was highly speculated upon until his reappearance in the orbit of Renatasia III, onboard the Imperial Carrack-class Cruiser Render. Rumours of Geno's ability to wield the Force had emerged and were, to a select few, revealed after the tragic death of a young recruit at Geno's hands. After the incident, he once again disappeared for quite some time.
Et tu, Brute
After extensive allurement, Geno had seduced the Jedi 'Aurelius Brutus' to the Dark side. Though his motives were initially unclear, it was later discovered that he had been training under an individual codenamed 'XIII' and the Jedi's death would exemplify his progress. Moments after the fallen Jedi's arrival onboard the Render, it became clear that the Jedi had intended to assassinate both Geno and his pilot. However, Krall managed to engage him in a duel on the bridge of the Capital ship, eventually driving him back into the hangar. They fought tirelessly for hours, the Jedi almost crushing Geno with a falling TIE fighter, until eventually he overcame Brutus' defense with a crude Death Grip. He then proceeded to brutally hack to death the former Padawan, bringing Krall to the end of his grim, bloodied trial of initiation.
Upon his return to the Core-World he was awarded an Imperial Bronze Star and his identity of Sith Lord was finally revealed to the public.
