Son of the Dark Side of the Force
Bogan is the avatar of the Dark Side of the Force, whose usual form is that of a tall, pale young man with glowing red eyes and red tattoos upon his bald head. He also often takes on the appearance of a huge black gargoyle. He was worshiped and feared as a god by ancient Force-Sensitive cultures, such as the Miraluka. Among the Dathomiri, he is counted among the “Great Spirits” and known as “The Black Gargoyle.”
The Jedi and Sith tend to believe that such personifications as Ashla and Bogan are the result of a Force Sensitive with a limited understanding allowing their tendency towards anthropomorphism to influence their perceptions of the nature of the Force. As such, both Orders tend to discount stories of direct encounters with such “beings,” assuming either that they are a misinterpretation of a person’s intuitive sense of the flows of the Force, or simply a delusion to justify their own inner desires.
