Xan Akosh would appear to be a man of about 50-60 years old, when he is actually closer to 90. He has graying hair and a neatly trimmed bear, wears long dark gray robes with an old ornate necklace that he hangs from his belt. He has a purple lightsaber, with a simple silver hilt.
Little is known about Akosh’s past. Even Bant knows next to nothing, despite being like a son to him. Akosh did not join the order at a young age; a rare exeption. His time as an apprentice was extremely short due to a combination of his almost unnatural control over the force and his sharp mind. His potential was noticed by Master Nota Lei, who was then the Grand Master of the Gray Council, and Akosh’s first steps down the gray path were taken.
Over the next decade Akosh not only earned a seat on the Gray Council but also the title of Master in the Jedi order. Akosh’s power continued to grow steadily as he acquired increasingly more influential and capable contacts as well as developing a mastery in the force that few others could dream of. He was able to mater both the light and dark sides of the force and would wield them as an artist does a brush. At the death of Nota Lei, Akosh ascended to the place of Grand Master. With this new found authority his vision and determination allowed him to take the Gray Council from a small group of idealistic Jedi and forge them into a powerful organization with eyes, ears, and influence throughout the known Galaxy.
