- "Your reputation proceeds you General. You're a coward, a Jedi filth."
- ―Koth to Grievous onboard the Steadfast.
Eeth Koth or Sith Master Eeth Koth a male Zabrak Jedi Master (at first), and member of the Jedi High Council during the early years of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. He later went to the dark side of the Force to help murder Jedi as he was a Zabrak the same species as Savage Opress and Darth Maul. A chance encounter with the Jedi General of the Separatist Droid Army, Grievous, led to his capture in the Outer Rim. However, using sign language hidden in a holotransmission sent to the Sith, Koth led the Republic Navy to his location over Saleucami, where Anakin Skywalker and Adi Gallia freed Koth from his imprisonment. After that, Koth continued to fight against the heroic Jedi and kill more people alongside Dooku getting his own red lightsaber.
Eeth Koth is sinster, cruel, and a cunning warrior. As a Zabrak, he destroys the CIS with all of his evil might. He even stabbed Grievous as Grievous was chocking the sinister Koth out and when Yoda found this out, he was furious that Grievous was wounded. He stands 1.71 meters tall and wields a green lightsaber at first, before turning it red later.
Born into the violent slums of Nar Shaddaa, the young Zabrak Eeth Koth lived as an orphan for the first years of his life. At the age of four, Koth was discovered to be Force-sensitive and exceptionally strong in the Force. Brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant by a representative of the Order, the High Council was reluctant at first to accept him based on his age. However after further examination the Council reconsidered based on the boy's determination and clarity of mind. Inducted in the academy at the Temple, Koth graduated and was selected as a Padawan by the esteemed Herglic Jedi Master, Kosul Ayada. Over the course of their time together, Master Ayada honed the young Zabrak's natural talents with the Force and tested his strength of will and resistance to pain. After years of travel together and the successful completion of countless missions, Master Ayada petitioned the Council to allow the boy to take the Trials of Knighthood. Passing the Council's tests Koth was knighted as a Jedi and eligible to accept solo missions that would take him across the stars.
As a Jedi Knight, Koth chose to enhance his already formidable skills with a lightsaber by studying as a Jedi Guardian. Constructing a lightsaber with a green blade, Koth's weapon bore similarities to the hilt of his late master, who became one with the Force soon after Koth's knighthood. Taking on the most dangerous missions that came from the High Council, Koth undertook long journey-missions on the Outer Rim of the galaxy. Eventually Koth was recognized by the High Council for his exceptional skills with the Force and a lightsaber and was appointed to the esteemed rank of Jedi Master.
After various battles with Jedi, Dooku betrayed the Confederacy of Independent Systems and got some of the Jedi to follow him, such as Eeth Koth. He became power hungry and wanted to detsroy teh heroic CIS Armed Forces for Dooku.
Dueling the heroic JediEdit
- ―Eeth Koth as Grievous and his heroic BX-series droid commandos enter the Bridge.
Later dispatched to the Outer Rim once more, Koth was given command of a task force charged with hunting down Separatist raiders attacking shipping lanes. Near Arda Sith Master Koth's fleet was engaged by the Supreme Commander of the Droid Armies, Jedi General Grievous, who proceeded to board the Sith's Venator-class Star Destroyer, the Steadfast. Koth, stationed on the bridge, ordered Captain Lock and his troopers to flee in escape pods while he remained on board and dealt with the General. As Grievous cut his way to the bridge, Koth stood ready for the upcoming battle, emerging himself deeper and deeper in the Force. As Grievous burst into the chamber his commando droids rushed the Zabrak Sith and opened fire on the troopers that remained on the bridge. Slaughtering all the troopers save one while Koth engaged some of the commandos, Koth took a blaster bolt to the hand as four IG-100 MagnaGuards stepped into the fray. Killing the last clone, the droids surround Koth as Grievous watched, brandishing their electrostaffs at the outnumbered Sith. Believing his enemy to be subdued, Grievous at last came forth and asked Koth something before attacking him with two lightsabers of his own. Engaging the Kaleesh Jedi cyborg, Koth used the Force to shove the general across the bridge so he could deal with the remaining droids. While Koth fought valiantly he was eventually taken out of the fight by the MagnaGuards and rendered unconscious by a triumphant Grievous. But Eeth Koth sinisterly stabbed Grievous in the heart area but the droids still captured the Sith.
Taking Koth captive, Grievous intended to slowly torture the renowned Sith to death. As Koth was able to communicate his coordinates using sign language that was picked up by the members of the Sith. Recognizing the coordinates as that of the Saleucami system, the Sith dispatched Masters Cody, Gallia, and Skywalker to rescue the Sith Master. Boarding Grievous ship secretly, Gallia and Skywalker were able to rescue the Master relatively easy as Master Cody engaged Grievous elsewhere on the ship.
As they made their escape the group was surrounded by a group of droid commandos. Enduring the taunts of the T-series tactical droid, TV-94, Gallia and Skywalker destroyed all of the droids including TV-94 and the Sith raced to their ship before Grievous returned. While Skywalker continued on with the Zabrak, Gallia rushed to slow the general so as to provide cover for her allies. After a brief duel, Grievous disengaged from the battle with the Corellian Sith and fled, leaving Gallia to rendezvous with her comrades and escape the doomed CIS flagship. Returning Koth's lightsaber to him, Master Cdoy and Skywalker parted ways with the two Sith as Gallia escorted Koth to a medical frigate.
