Darth Andrekios, formerly known as Halcyon Shay, is a Dark Lord of the Sith and is the former Minister of Mysteries and Ancient Knowledge, former Minister of Law and Justice, former Minister of State and Interior, former Deputy Minister of the Ministry of State and Interior, former Knight Grandmaster, and former Grand Duke of Mos Ares. Andrekios is decribed as cold and calculating, an individual who is feared and respected throughout the Imperium. He prefers to fight with a double bladed lightsaber but uses a single bladed saber on occasion. He is addressed as His Grace, Darth Andrekios of the Houses Roderick and Shay, Prince of the Sith Imperium, The Risen, Dark Lord of the Sith,
and Count of Shay.
Andrekios was born on Alderaan to the noble House Shay, and lived a peaceful and comfortable life in his early years. Prior to the Great Transferrence, Andrekios was present for the Empire's attack on Alderaan. House Shay was publically allied with House Organa, and Andrekios' father, Unuriar Shay, was well known to be a former Jedi before he willingly separated himself to claim his noble lineage. This was a well known fact to the Sith, who sought to commit attacks against the House to injure House Organa. By this time, Andrekios began exhibiting his immense Force abilities, and his father quickly arranged for him to be taken to Tython. En route from his House to a shuttle, Andrekios harbored a resentment of his father, believing he was abandoning him. The life of a Jedi was not meant to be, however, as Shay's personal aide, Zectosh, informed the Sith of Andrekios' departure. The Jedi team escorting Andrekios was killed and Andrekios was taken, whisked away to Korriban after his Force-Sensitivity was discovered. Years of harsh training and a newfound hatred of his father allowed him to adapt and learn quickly, rising to the rank of Sith Lord, and later, Darth, at a relatively young age.
Andrekios joined the Imperium as one of the high ranking Darths who recognized Lord Emperor's Arestenax's power. In a short time, the Lord Emperor recognized Andrekios' power and loyalty, and he made Andrekios a Knight of the Imperium and assigned him to his watch. After serving as an Imperial Knight, Andrekios was elevated to the position of High Councilor and Head of the Ministry of Mysteries and Ancient Knowledge. He later wed Princess Vindictiva and became a Prince of the Imperium. After this, Andrekios returned to House Shay, killed his father and the aide that betrayed him, and claimed the title of Count of Shay. The title of Prince, however, would later be stripped from him following the death of his wife and then restored. Decades of loyal service to the Imperium has proved to everyone that Andrekios is loyal to the Lord Emperor and the Imperium as a whole.
After the Great Transference, Andrekios came back into contact with the Imperium. He mended his marriage with Vindictiva, and delved further into his relationship with his son, Prince Zendrasa. After concluding personal business on Alderaan, Andrekios has returned in a more full time capacity, aiding in the continued growth of the Imperium.
Due to the Great Transference and his revival, Andrekios does not have the same power he once had years ago. Regardless of this setback, he is still regarded as one of the most powerful Force users in the Imperium to date. Darth Andrekios is an expert in all know forms of Lightsaber combat. He has successfully defeated and defended himself from legendary figures and groups in Imperium history, such as Darth Iax, the Dread Union, the former Empress S'rahnia, the former Wrath, and several High Councilors. Andrekios is regarded is an expert in military strategy, successfully leading large fleets to victory against foes such as Darth Iax. Andrekios was skilled enough in the force and as a martial combatant to be able to hold his own against the former Lord Emperor Arestenax. Due to his Sith upbringing and a need to adapt to most situations, Andrekios is also a formidable hand-to-hand fighter. In addition, he specializes in medical aid and bioscience. Andrekios is also able to speak several languages including Catharese, Mando'a, and Huttese among others.
