==Biography==
===Nagai Warlord===
{{Quote|You were not born Sith.|Darth Maladi|Star Wars Legacy 15: Claws of the Dragon, Part 2}}

[[Darth]] Nihl, a [[Sexes|male]] [[Nagai]] who originated from the [[planet]] [[Nagi]], was a [[warlord]] on his [[homeworld]] before he joined [[Darth Krayt]] and the [[One Sith]]. He was known to be Krayt's top enforcer in [[Darth Krayt's Sith Empire|Krayt's Sith Order]], and served the [[Dark Lord of the Sith|Dark Lord]] as his [[Fist]], or military commander. In [[130 ABY]], Nihl was promoted to the position of [[Hand (One Sith)|Hand]] by Darth Krayt after [[Darth Nihl's predecessor|his predecessor]] [[Death|died]] during the [[Sith-Imperial War|war]], in which the [[Sith]] allied themselves with the [[Fel Empire]] in order to bring down the current [[The galaxy|galactic]] government, the [[Galactic Federation of Free Alliances|Galactic Alliance]].

===Ossus===
{{Quote|I earned my place as a Hand. I slew many Jedi that day, including Kol Skywalker.|Darth Nihl|Star Wars Legacy 15: Claws of the Dragon, Part 2}}

[[File:DarthNihl.jpg|left|thumb|200px|Darth Nihl on Ossus]]

Two standard days after the Empire captured [[Coruscant]], the capital of the Galactic Alliance,''[[Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force]]'' Nihl led the Sith in an [[Massacre at Ossus|attack]] on the [[Jedi Temple]] at [[Ossus]]—with orders from Krayt to leave no [[Jedi]] alive.''[[The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia]]'' In the midst of carrying out his Lord's mandate, however, Nihl and his legion of Sith [[stormtrooper]]s were confronted and attacked by [[Kol Skywalker]], a [[Jedi Master]] of the [[New Jedi Order]], in an attempt to provide a group of [[Padawan]]s a means to escape Ossus. While Skywalker and his former Padawan, [[Zabrak]] [[Wolf Sazen]], had some initial success against the Sith, it was in vain. Nihl engaged Sazen in [[Lightsaber combat|combat]] and used his [[lightsaber staff]] to defeat the Jedi Master. Sazen's weapon arm was [[Cho sun|severed]], and afterwards, he was [[Shiak|impaled]] by the Sith Lord, mortally wounding the Zabrak. After Sazen's defeat, Skywalker directly fought Nihl alone, injuring him in hopes of a last stand.

Skywalker's son, [[Cade Skywalker|Cade]], soon arrived to help his father in combat, who had become momentarily distracted from his [[Lightsaber duel|duel]] with Nihl. The elder Skwalker commanded Cade to take the wounded Sazen to the Jedi's escape shuttle, thus preventing Nihl from slaying the wounded Master. Skywalker continued his stand against Nihl and his Sith, but to no avail; Nihl unleashed his [[Force lightning]] to kill the Jedi Master. With the majority of the Jedi on Ossus dead, Nihl left the planet, victorious over the New Jedi Order. He traveled to Coruscant, where he witnessed Krayt's [[Attack on Emperor Fel|ascension]] as Emperor of a newly created [[New Sith Empire|Sith Empire]] by killing a [[Roan Fel (decoy)|decoy of Emperor Roan Fel]] in order to take control over the Fel Empire. In the wake of the decoy's death, the Imperial [[Moff]]s swore fealty to Krayt.

===Vendaxa===
{{Quote|You should have stayed dead on Ossus, one-arm! I dislike having to kill my opponents twice.|Darth Nihl to Wolf Sazen|Star Wars Legacy 6: Broken, Part 5}}

[[137 ABY|Seven years later]], Nihl was no longer Krayt's only Hand. [[Darth Talon]], a [[Twi'lek]] Sith, was named Krayt's second Hand, and she was sent to [[Socorro]] for her first mission: to capture and use [[Prince]]ss [[Marasiah Fel]] to lure her father, the former Emperor [[Roan Fel]], into the open so that Talon could eliminate him and thus end any resistance to Krayt's full control over the galaxy. However, Talon was prevented from capturing Marasiah by the intervention of Cade Skywalker, who had turned to a career of [[Bounty Hunter|bounty hunting]] after Nihl had killed his father. Skywalker and his companions, the [[Zeltron]] [[Engineer]] [[Deliah Blue]] and [[Human]] co-pilot [[Jariah Syn]], transported Marasiah and her aide, [[Astraal Vao]], to [[Vendaxa]] in order to meet with Vao's brother, [[Jedi Knight]] [[Shado Vao|Shado]], and the Jedi Nihl had presumed deceased, Wolf Sazen. Talon [[Skirmish on Vendaxa|attacked them there]], albeit unsuccessfully, and called for the Nagai's help to help eliminate the Jedi and capture the princess. Nihl was commanded by Talon to silently send troops to her position, wait for the former Emperor to appear, and then ambush the Jedi and Imperials so as to kill them all.''[[Star Wars Legacy 5: Broken, Part 4]]''

[[File:Sazen'sArm.jpg|thumb|right|280px|Nihl duels Wolf Sazen during the Ossus massacre.]]

Fel arrived with an escort of two [[Predator-class fighter|Imperial fighters]], which were quickly shot down by the Sith troops positioned by Nihl and his fellow Hand. However, Fel and his accompanying [[Imperial Knight]]s escaped the destroyed [[Starship|ships]] only to be confronted by Talon. At that moment, Fel revealed himself to be Imperial Knight [[Antares Draco]]. In her confusion at the deception, Talon was forced to flee and reconvene with Nihl and his troops. He planned to attack the Jedi and Imperials once more, hoping to capture Marasiah and kill the others. As they attacked, Nihl again dueled with Sazen, and mocked the Jedi Master with the prospect of killing him a second time. Skywalker, seeing the Nagai Sith dueling Sazen once more, and Marasiah mortally wounded by a [[Unidentified Zabrak Sith|Zabrak Sith]], joined Sazen in combat, hoping to avenge his father.''[[Star Wars Legacy 6: Broken, Part 5]]'' Sazen attempted to halt Skywalker's attack on Nihl, who believed that Sazen was right to stop Skywalker, and stated that wielding a [[lightsaber]] did not make him a Jedi. The Sith Lord further mocked him and explained that vengeance was not a Jedi trait, though Skywalker did not care, and continued his duel with his father's killer.''[[Star Wars Legacy 7: Broken, Part 6]]''

As Nihl's duel with Skywalker continued, Sazen was sent to bring the princess onto Cade's ship, the ''[[Mynock (starship)|Mynock]]''. Nihl, convinced that the bounty hunter could not defeat him, offered him a quick death similar to his father's, but Skywalker simply pressed on, discontent with any result besides the Nagai's death. Nihl was subsequently shot by Syn, allowing Skywalker enough time to gather himself, but his companion was soon [[Telekinesis|Force pushed]] away by Nihl. This left him open to defeat by Skywalker, who instead escaped with his companions, the Imperials, and Jedi Vao, on the ''Mynock''. Nihl then explained to Talon that he would soon be the only Hand once again, as he believed Talon would be killed by Krayt for the mission's failure.

===Capture of Cade Skywalker===
{{Quote|His father's son…weak and too easily defeated by darkness.|Darth Nihl on Cade Skywalker|Star Wars Legacy 14: Claws of the Dragon, Part 1}}

To Nihl's disappointment, Talon was not killed for her actions on Vendaxa. Instead, a search was warranted for Skywalker, in whom Krayt had an interest because of his potential to [[Force Healing|heal]] through [[the Force]]. This search, once begun, was easier than expected; Skywalker came to the [[Sith Temple]] on Coruscant to save [[Hosk Trey'lis]], a [[Bothan]] Jedi Knight whom Skywalker had handed to the Sith for a [[bounty]] before experiencing a change of heart. He was [[Duel in the Temple of the Sith|attacked]] by Talon, whom he defeated using the [[dark Side of the Force]]. Before he could finish her off, Nihl Force choked him with the intent of killing the last Skywalker. However, Talon informed Nihl that Skywalker was wanted alive, and that she was sent to capture him. Unable to disobey Krayt's orders, Nihl obliged, and informed Krayt of Skywalker's capture.''[[Star Wars Legacy 14: Claws of the Dragon, Part 1]]''

[[File:NihlForceChoke.jpg|thumb|left|200px|Nihl subdues Skywalker with a Force choke.]]

With Skywalker captured, Krayt hoped to turn the former Jedi to the dark side. By threatening to kill Syn and Blue, the Sith Lord was able to persuade Skywalker to listen to his offer and reconsider being a Sith. Krayt brought Skywalker to his chambers, but when Nihl attempted to enter, [[Darth Wyyrlok (III)|Darth Wyyrlok]], Krayt's chief servant, barred him from entering. Nihl attempted to argue, believing his status as a Hand was enough. Wyyrlok did not comply, and questioned Nihl's loyalty to Krayt, causing Nihl to step back. [[Darth Maladi]], the head of [[Sith Intelligence and Assassination]], explained to Nihl why he wasn't allowed entry; Nihl was not born a Sith. Krayt had wanted Nihl to become his [[Fist|Sith military leader]], and only promoted Nihl to Hand because Talon had not been ready at the time of his predecessor's death. When Nihl questioned Maladi as to why she wasn't allowed to enter even though she was born Sith, she stated her complete loyalty to Krayt. However, both she and Nihl wondered at Krayt's fascination with Skywalker.''[[Star Wars Legacy 15: Claws of the Dragon, Part 2]]''

Krayt's attention to Skywalker paid off, and Skywalker agreed to become a Sith, trained by Talon. As Skywalker fell further and further down the dark side, Krayt became convinced that Skywalker would be able to [[Force powers|heal]] him of the [[Yuuzhan Vong]] [[Yorik-kul]] implants that were causing his body to fail. As Skywalker began to realize his power under the training of Krayt and Talon, the Sith Lord became obsessed with Skywalker and his potential ability to heal him. This obsession Nihl disagreed with, and he told Maladi of this. She began to wonder to herself if Skywalker was capable of healing Krayt, and what would happen should he die. Nihl firmly believed in the old ways of the Sith; because Krayt had named no heir, there would be a power struggle. Therefore, Nihl believed that should Krayt fail to be healed, then Skywalker would be named his heir.''[[Star Wars Legacy 17: Claws of the Dragon, Part 4]]''

===Fighting another Skywalker===
{{Quote|Slay the one who killed your father! Destroy Nihl—take your revenge!|Darth Krayt to Cade Skywalker|Star Wars Legacy 18: Claws of the Dragon, Part 5}}

However, Skywalker had different plans; he lied about his eagerness to be trained as a Sith, and attempted to escape the Temple of the Sith. This escape attempt was foiled by Talon, and Skywalker was brought to Krayt to kill Trey'lis, so that he could become a Sith in truth. Nihl watched as Krayt commanded him to kill Trey'lis or be killed himself, but Skywalker refused. Krayt attempted to stir Skywalker's hatred of people dying for him as motivation to kill Trey'lis, but the Bothan Jedi intervened, expressing his hope that he would not be used as a weapon of the Sith. For his interference, Krayt struck him down and a [[Skirmish at the Temple of the Sith|skirmish]] between Nihl, Talon, Krayt, and Skywalker occurred when the latter had a [[Force Vision|vision]] of his father. Using the Force, Skywalker pulled his father's lightsaber towards him, impaling Talon with it, and engaged Nihl in combat. However, upon Krayt's beckoning, Skywalker engaged the leader of the Sith in combat instead of killing Nihl. Skywalker was subsequently rescued by his mother, [[Morrigan Corde]], who had aligned herself with her son's companions in a plan to rescue the bounty hunter. The plan was a success and Skywalker escaped, resulting in the failure of both Nihl and his fellow Hand to keep Skywalker within the clutches of the Sith. Krayt was determined to make them both pay for their failure.''[[Star Wars Legacy 19: Claws of the Dragon, Part 6]]''

[[File:NihlChoMok.jpg|right|thumb|280px|Nihl, after losing his weapon-arm in battle with Cade Skywalker]]

===Replacement===
{{Quote|My Lord, I earned my place as your Hand! I ''deserve'' better than this!''"
"''You ''deserve'' death but…serve me well again and you may have a chance to earn your position back.|Darth Nihl and Darth Krayt|Star Wars Legacy 27: Into the Core}}

Immediately after Skywalker's escape, Nihl was tended to by Maladi and Wyyrlok, along with Talon and Krayt. Though the latter was not injured, Nihl and his fellow Hand were hurt extensively, and Maladi was put in charge of their healing. Since the Nagai's arm was cleanly cut, Maladi offered to have it reattached, but Krayt refused; Nihl's incompetence had failed the Sith, and Krayt felt that he was no longer worthy of his arm as a result. Instead, Nihl was to receive a Yuuzhan Vong bioform replacement for his severed limb. Krayt had originally wanted to kill Nihl for his failure, but Wyyrlok convinced him otherwise, explaining that while he was no longer able to continue his position as a Hand, Nihl still had use to the Dark Lord. Krayt then replaced Nihl with [[Darth Stryfe]], his Fist, as his new Hand, and sent him and Talon to be healed. Nihl protested his replacement, saying he had earned his place as Krayt's Hand, but Krayt brushed the complaint off.''[[Star Wars Legacy 27: Into the Core]]'' Maladi took the two to her [[Darth Maladi's laboratory|laboratory]], and placed both Nihl and Talon [[bacta tank]]s.''[[Star Wars Legacy 23: Loyalties, Part 1]]''

As the injuries he sustained were more severe than Talon's, Nihl continued to heal on Coruscant, while the Twi'lek recovered completely. The former Hand remained in bacta while Lords Krayt, Maladi, Stryfe, and Talon, answered the summons of a mysterious [[Celeste Morne|female Jedi]], who claimed to have Cade Skywalker imprisoned on the [[Deep Core]] world of [[Had Abbadon]]. Lured into a trap by Skywalker and his colleagues, which included several Imperial Knights, Nihl's fellow Sith were [[Battle on Had Abbadon|attacked]]''[[Star Wars Legacy 30: Vector, Part 11]]'' and subsequently defeated. Though Darth Krayt survived the battle, he was murdered shortly afterward by Darth Wyyrlok,''[[Star Wars Legacy 31: Vector, Part 12]]'' who feigned the Dark Lord's survival to all while acting in Krayt's stead as both leader of their Order and Galactic Emperor. Meanwhile, Nihl had recovered fully and bore a new arm, and later joined Wyyrlok with several of the more prominent Sith when they returned to Coruscant to secure the Imperial throne in the name of Darth Krayt.''[[Star Wars Legacy 35: Storms, Part 2]]''
