this blond-haired man was, in his youth, one of Tamith Kai's most promising students at the Shadow Academy. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Welk and Lomi Plo were captured by the alien invaders and held aboard the Baanu Rass, as part of the group of Force-sensitive individuals used in the creation and breeding of the voxyn. Both Welk and Lomi Plo agreed to help the Jedi infiltrate the worldship and destroy the voxyn, despite the misgivings of Zekk and several other Jedi about their loyalties. However, as the strike force neared the voxyn queen, the Dark Jedi abandoned the Jedi in order to save their own skins. They fled in the ship Tachyon Flier, abandoning Lowbacca but unaware that Raynar Thul was still on board. The young Jedi Knight and his captors didn't escape, and were shot down by Yuuzhan Vong warships. The Tachyon Flier managed to limp into the Unknown Regions, but crashed on an unidentified planet. Welk and Lomi Plo barely survived the crash, and fled the ship before it was discovered by the Yoggoy hive of the Colony. However, the two Dark Jedi did not escape the notice of the Colony, and became Joiners in one of the smaller hives. In stark contrast to the presence of UnuThul, Welk joined with the insectile race and created the Gorog hive. This hive chose to remain hidden, working toward its own evil goals in secret. Welk's hive members captured Chiss warriors, who were then joined to the collective mind. This assimilation of Dark Jedi and Chiss mentalities created the so-called Dark Nest. Welk himself was badly injured in the crash of the Tachyon Flier, and had to graft an insect arm to his body in order to be whole. Working behind the scenes, Welk was able to infiltrate the Taat nest on Jwlio, after Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and several other Masters arrived at Qoribu in search of a group of Jedi Joiners. He was discovered by Saba Sebatyne in a cave beneath the surface, and was forced to fight his way to freedom, returning to the Gorog nest on Kr. There, he found himself facing both Luke Skywalker and his wife, Mara Jade Skywalker, in an intense lightsaber battle. Luke was able slip inside Welk's guard and drive his lightsaber into Welk's stomach, before pulling the weapon out through his ribs. Welk died in a bloodcurdling scream, and the Will of the Gorog nest was broken.
