This entry in the Post-Mortem series will be a special focused specifically on Darth Thanaton, tying into my upcoming collaboration with EvanNova95, Darth Thanaton Vs. Corran Horn. As Thanaton's two major appearances within continuity are separated by thirty-eight years, I will be assessing and rating the two iterations of the character separately, with additional commentary on his development. Furthermore, as this Post-Mortem in fact predates the Match-Up proper, technically making it a Pre-Mortem, I will be listing my sources now before we being:
My analysis of Darth Thanaton will be based on his appearances in The Old Republic MMO, the tie-in comic series Blood Of The Empire, and The Old Republic Encyclopedia, with background information from the Book Of Sith, The Jedi Path, The Jedi Academy Training Manual, and The Essential Guide To The Force.
