Darth Eric was the secret apprentice of Darth Maul, General Grievous, Darth Vader, and eventually Darth Sidious himself. He helped the CIS in the Clone Wars, until Darth Sidious revealed his plot and let him join the Empire. Darth Eric often hunted down the remaining Jedi of Order 66.
Early life (32 BBY]]–19 BBY)Edit
Darth Eric was exiled from his home world of Tatooine, where he dreamed of becoming a Sith. Often surviving on his own, he was sold to a strict slave owner, Jabba Desilijic Tiure. He was taken to Nal Hutta for 13 years, until he planned an escape.
The plan was made with a lifelong friend Sammy, that they would escape onto a Trade Federation ship. While Jabba was out holding a podrace, they executed the plan. Eric and Sammy were caught by a Neimoidian and personally taken to Darth Sidious, who decided their fate.
Sidious thought that Eric was strong in the Force and he could be useful to him. Sidious ordered his guards to kill Sammy, because he was an impostor and had no use to him. As for Eric, he would be taken as his apprentice's apprentice.
Battle of NabooEdit
Darth Sidious taught Eric basic Form III: Soresu to block blaster shots. While he could help Darth Maul on his mission, they decided he did not have enough skill and would be killed.
At the time of the Republic's suspected attack, there was no appearance of a battle. The CIS claimed they had chickened out, only to find themselves in the mist of a surprise attack by Gungans. They had a ray shield up, but his army could penetrate it.
As Eric led the attack the Gungans were not armed with any blasters and seemed vulnerable. His troops started to corner the Republic troops in and saw hope. Soon the droids centered them, and the Gungans surrendered. Then an explosion happened in space, and the droids were deactivated.
Although the droids were down, the Gungans had no ammunition to kill Eric with, and he escaped. The Gungans had won, and Eric had got word that Qui-Gon Jinn was killed by Darth Maul, but Eric's master was killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi. He was know the apprentice of Darth Sidious until he would turn Dooku.
