1 Zukyk usually uses half his total amount of Force points (rounded up) using the Findsman Ceremonies talent. At full strength, he has 6 rerolls banked. Rerolls can be used on Stealth and Perception checks, Use the Force checks activating the farseeing Force power, or attack rolls. Zukyk must keep the second result, even if it is worse.
2 When first encountered Zukyk has activated resist force, maintaining it each turn (at the cost of a swift action), gaining a +5 bonus on both is Reflex (30) and Will Defense (35) when resisting Force powers used against him.
3 Unless he has access to a trained force sensitive captive, Zukyk usually uses the Drain Knowledge talent on one of his weaker followers, gaining Skill Focus (Use the Force) for a day, for a total of +16 in his Use the Force skill.
Event—Exiled: As a result of your journeys around the galaxy, you can plot a safe course for hyperspace travel in half the time it normally takes (you can plot a course in 30 seconds, or 5 rounds). Additionally, if you trained in Knowledge (galactic lore), you gain the Skill Focus feat for that skill as a conditional bonus feat.
Fearless and psychopathic, Zukyk travels the galaxy along with several dozens Gand followers, seeking preys worthy of his skills, taking on occasional bounties to remain afloat. However, even though he is not adverse to lend his services or those of his followers for money, Zukyk hunt sentient beings mainly for sport and his personal enjoyment. His favorite targets are Jedi.
He was vanquished by our heroes on Bakura in a fierce battle on the 26th-level of the Arcology.
