Avacon was trained in the ways of the Jedi on Tython when he was young, he grew tired of being Jedi so he fled Tython and unknowingly came to Korriban. There he was captured by the Sith and was almost executed when a Sith Lord named Darth Maloch intervened and took him in as his apprentice. Maloch trained him well and now he is unmatched with a light-saber and grows more powerful with the dark side every day. Avacon saved the life of a Mandalorian commander named Aran during a Jedi attack on Korriban early in the war, earning his loyalty. Aran and three of the best Mandalorian soldiers serve as body-guards to Avacon.
