That not-particularly-friendly-looking chap pictured above is named Darth Malgus. He's one of the main Sith Lords seeking to disrupt the universe in BioWare's upcoming Star Wars MMO, The Old Republic, and you'll be able to find out all about him in a new Star Wars novel.

The book, titled Star Wars: The Old Republic - Deceived, will provide backstory for Malgus, chronicling his rise to power leading up to the point at which The Old Republic begins. The book was written by Paul S. Kemp with consultation from BioWare and LucasArts.

If you want to know more, watch the trailer below or check out the first chapter of the book on the official Old Republic site and the second and third chapters on Deceived will be released on March 22.
