This never-named, and deliberately shadowy, character created an impressive new battle suit on an unspecified Outer Rim world in about 1500 BBY. HE was going to test his new creation on Jaing and Durge, whom he pre-arranged to meet in the offices of Dr. Nubyl.
The price for this operation was protection. He wanted Jaing to shield him from those in Ung Kusp''s clan of Mandalorians. He had recently stolen a rare Sith artifact from them.
Jaing, and by extension, Durge, agreed to these terms. They were soon attacked by the Kusp clan. Jaing was fatally wounded by a thermal detonator thrown by one of the clan.
In grief over his master's passing, Durge vowed to kill every Mandalorian alive—something which he very nearly accomplished as a Sith combatant in the New Sith War.
As Jaing died, the cyberneticist whispered to Jaing that the entire thing had been a setup. He had desired a Sith/Mandalorian conflict, and in giving the "new and improved" Durge psychological motivation to kill all Mandalorians, he had gifted the Sith with a powerful new weapon.
What is not understood about this character is which of the two sides he was on, or, indeed, whether he was on either side. Though the Sith artifact he stole, and the fact that he essentially turned Durge into a Sith weapon, might argue for him being inclined toward the Sith, it's certainly not clear this was the case. He could have just as easily been against both parties, and in favor of a war between the two simply because it would weaken Sith and Mandalorian alike.
