Ruler of the Sith Empire

Ragnos first appears in the comic book series Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith, though he isn't named until Tales of the Jedi: The Golden Age of the Sith. Details of his century-long reign are few, although his death marks the end of the Golden Age of the Sith Empire. He is of mixed Sith/human ancestry, with a surpassing command of the dark side of the Force. He conquers and unifies the Sith Empire in a brilliant and savage series of short campaigns (but only expands the territory of the Sith Empire by an insignificant amount); with his ascension, he maintains his grip by playing his opponents against each other.

Ragnos dies before the Sith can grow powerful enough to expand. Immediately following his funeral, a schism erupts between the leaders of the Sith, involving the later Dark Lord Naga Sadow.

In the video game Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, set approximately four thousand years after the Great Sith War, the spirit of Marka Ragnos once again returns as the Dark Jedi Tavion, Desann's apprentice, discovers the Scepter of Ragnos. Tavion steals Force energy via the scepter from planets such as Byss, Vjun, Coruscant, Hoth, Yavin, and Bespin. With enough concentration of Force energy, it is possible to resurrect Marka Ragnos, spiritually and physically. During her campaign, Tavion transfers the energy stored inside the scepter into her disciples' bodies, in order to muster a group of disciples to fight the Jedi.

  • If the game's protagonist, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr, stays on the path of light, he confronts Tavion before she can resurrect Ragnos. Tavion releases the energy in the scepter to battle Jaden, but is finally beaten. She transfers the remaining energy into the tomb, freeing Ragnos from his sarcophagus to possess Tavion's body and confront the Jedi. Ragnos wields a Sith Sword hidden in the scepter to duel with Jaden, but ultimately loses. Jaden destroys the Scepter of Ragnos. Stripped of his power, Ragnos leaves Tavion's body and once again goes back into his sarcophagus, and Tavion dies in the process. Jaden later seals the tomb forever upon leaving.
  • If Jaden turns to the dark side, he murders the defenseless Tavion after their duel. Jaden, refusing to serve anyone, does not use the scepter to bring Ragnos back to life. After a climactic lightsaber duel with Kyle Katarn, Jaden destroys Ragnos' sarcophagus with the scepter and leaves Korriban aboard a hijacked Imperial Star Destroyer.

Regardless of the choice, Ragnos' ghost escapes back to his tomb on Korriban, where he remains with the rest of the ancient Dark Lords, waiting to arise and threaten the galaxy again.
