This HK-series assassin droid achieved infamy just before the Jedi Civil War. Although outwardly resembling a Systech Corporation unit, he was actually built by Darth Revan as a method of silencing political opponents. HK-47 has had many masters besides Revan, as well--corporate figures, crime lords, Hutts and Mandalorians--who have tried to harness his assassination protocols, usually with disastrous results.
Three centuries ago, after being found and repaired by the Jedi Exile, HK-47 helped defeat the Sith Triumvirate. After the fighting ended, he was kept in trust by the re-formed Jedi Order, much to his dismay; with the galaxy still in turmoil, the Jedi were concerned that HK-47 would start "helpfully" removing troublesome individuals. Then, during routine maintenance, an engineer accidentally activated an unknown command in HK-47's systems. Soon after, the droid disappeared from Jedi custody and left for deep space.
The Jedi's records claim that HK-47 has been destroyed and rebuilt several times since his creation. Darth Malgus's agents are said to have recently recovered HK-47's components from a mysterious facility built into an asteroid. Now reassembled and upgraded, HK-47 has become one of Darth Malgus's most formidable weapons.
