Tulak Hord, known as the Lord of Hate and Master of the Gathering Darkness, was a Dark Lord of the Sith that ruled during the early Sith Empire, commanding great armies and possessing a mastery of the dark side of the Force and lightsaber combat which left him nearly unrivaled. During battle, Hord wore a black mask, making him a fear-inspiring sight.
Tulak Hord was renowned for his legendary dueling abilities. Centuries later upon inquiry from Surik, Kreia remarked that Hord was "the greatest lightsaber duelist of the Sith Lords," going on to say that his skill was considered "remarkable even for his time, when many true lightsaber masters lived." Kreia also revealed that if Surik had to face an ancient Sith Lord in combat, she would learn that "we are as children playing with toys compared to the prowess of the old masters." Later, Khem Val revealed to Darth Nox that Hord single-handedly broke the sieges laid by Jedi to Imperial strongholds in the Yn and Chabosh. Over a thousand Jedi perished in these battles.
Hord was a fearsome master of the dark side. He was extraordinarily competent in the matters of telekinesis; when Darth Nox approached the ruins of the Endar Spire, Khem Val revealed that "The great Tulak Hord once pulled a ship this size from the sky." Hord was also a master of sorcery.
