A rare pureblood Sith who lacks Force sensitivity, Executor Krannus was in danger of being left to die by his Sith parents. However, he was spared this fate by direct order of the Emperor. Although Krannus is considered inferior to Force-wielding Sith, his heritage elevates him above the ordinary humans of the Imperial military.
Krannus has assumed one of the Empire's highest ranks‒Executor‒and wields his supreme authority as a fiercely-devoted servant of the Emperor who spared his life. On his dark master's orders, Krannus leads a death-worshipping cult whose members believe the Emperor is a godlike being who will bestow immortality and unlimited power upon them‒but only if they bring about the galaxy's destruction first.
