|First Appearance||Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith 6: Jedi Assault (1995)|
Marka Ragnos was a half-breed Dark Lord of the Sith who lived during the time of the first Sith Empire, born long before 5,100 BBY, and, around that same year, dueled Sith Lord Simus for the title of Dark Lord of the Sith and control of the Sith Empire. Ragnos defeated Simus, who was beheaded in the battle with the other aspiring Dark Lord.
Ragnos lived for over a hundred years, growing in power, pitting his adversaries against each other and ensuring that there were no threats to his throne. Also, during his life, he took Vitiate, a gifted student of the Dark Side as his apprentice from a young age seeing great potential on him. Following his death, shortly before the Great Hyperspace War two powerful Sith Lords, Naga Sadow and Ludo Kressh fought each other to occupy his throne; Ragnos' spirit appeared before them and proclaimed that only the most worthy should succeed him.
Ragnos lived on as a Force ghost after his death, trapped within the confines of his tomb in the Valley of the Dark Lords on Korriban. A thousand years later after his death, Exar Kun summoned Ragnos from his grave, through the use of talismans, crowning Exar Kun as the new Dark Lord, and Ulic Qel-Droma as Kun's apprentice, as an attempt to resurrect the lost empire thousands of years prior.
Thousands of years after the Sith Empire, during the New Republic era, the Dark Jedi Tavion Axmis made an attempt to bring Marka Ragnos back from death, using an old Sith artifact, known as the Scepter of Ragnos in order to siphon the Force from many Force Nexuses all spread across the galaxy, empowering the Disciples of Ragnos. Tavion's goal to resurrect Ragnos almost succeeded, but her operation was overthrown by the Jedi Jaden Korr, defeating Ragnos' spirit, and enclosing him on his tomb once more again.
Marka Ragnos has fought one time so far, having won his first FFA match against Demise, who was also new to the Arena.
