The Dark Lord

Galen Marek, warlord of the Galactic Empire.

“Your time is over! I am the future of the Sith!

-Lord Marek

Galen Marek was actually Darth Vader’s apprentice, between Episode III and IV.  Darth Vader trained him to assist in the Jedi purge, but the Emperor saw more in him.  He encouraged his intensive training until finally dropping a subtle hint that Vader had betrayed him.  The Emperor wanted Lord Marek (newly christened) to kill Vader and replace him.  All went according to plan, Marek turned rogue and wiped out thousands of stormtroopers to get to Vader, but the Dark Lord was to powerful.  After a long and bloody battle, Vader overcame and remained the Emperor’s right hand.

Darth Caedus

Darth Caedus

“I tell you this: he is the greatest of all Sith and more dangerous then you could possibly imagine.”


Darth Caedus is none other than Han and Leia Solo’s son.  He fought in the four year Yuuzhan Vong war, and learned of the Dark Side by a rogue Sith named Lumiya.  He fully embraced it, and became incredibly powerful and corrupt.  He then ended up murdering Luke Skywalker wife, Mara Jade Skywalker.  Lumiya christened him as Darth Caedus after this deed, discarding his old name, Jacen Solo.  He later inherited Darth Krayt’s Empire, and ruled it with an iron fist until he was dethroned and the Empire was dispersed by Luke and the remnants of the New Republic.  After this, he was hunted down and killed by his sister, Jaina Solo.

Krayt and Wyyrlok

“Even the truth has its uses”

-Lord Krayt

A’sharad Hett was a padawan that served in the Clone Wars but somehow survived order 66, and was later captured by the Yuuzhan Vong.  He learned of the Dark Side and, despite the Empire being long dead, claimed the remnants of the old Empire and retook the entire Galaxy remaking Palpatine’s Imperium.  Krayt was the absolute tyrant and dictator, but had over ten Sith generals under him, including Darth Wyyrlok (His adviser) Darth Reave, Darth Nihl, Darth Talon and Darth Ravage.  He called this the one Sith rule.  Krayt ruled, conquered, and oppressed for decades before finally being murdered when he was weak by none other than Wyyrlok his adviser.  Wyyrlok then claimed the throne, but only Krayt could hold such a regime together and it fell apart before his eyes.

Darth Revan

Darth Revan

“Revan was power. Staring into his face was like staring into the force…”

-Darth Traya

Revan earned respect as a Jedi during wars as a brilliant war strategist and one of the Orders best blades.  As he became more powerful he fell under the gaze of Sith Lord, Darth Traya, who trained him in the ways of the Dark Side.  Revan later pulled his fellow Jedi, Malak, into the ways of the Dark Side and they ruled the Galaxy by the products of Revan’s relentless conquesting.  Throughout their reign, Revan was always slightly higher than Malak in rank, and Malak usually did most of the duo’s “dirty work”.  After being betrayed by Malak, Revan was overpowered and captured by seven Jedi, and had his mind literally wiped clean of his Sith memories.  He served to destroy and foil many of Malak’s plots and later ended up killing Malak in a duel.  In later years Revan’s memories began to return and he left into the unknown regions of space to ponder, never to be seen again.

Darth Malak

Darth Malak, ex-emperor of the Galaxy

“Wipe that pathetic planet off the face of the galaxy!”

-Darth Malak

Malak once served alongside Revan in the Mandalorian Wars, and later served as co-ruler of the galaxy with him.  Malak was known as one of the greatest swordsman of his time, and wielded Dark Side powers to achieve his foul means, including a force amplified screech and powerful force lightning.  When Revan turned to the Light Side Malak assumed full control of the Sith but was later killed by Revan himself in a ferocious duel.

Darth Sion, Dark Lord of Pain

Darth Sion, Lord of Pain

Darth Sion was another of the Sith who governed the Triumvirate which took over Sith dealings after Revan and Malak’s Empire.  He was incredibly powerful and was actually practically a walking dead man, with only the force holding his rotting body together.  This came at a price though.  He was in a constant state of torment and agony, which gained him the name Lord of  Pain.  Like Nihilus, he was killed in the fall of the Sith Triumvirate.

Darth Nihilus, Dark Lord of Hunger

Darth Nihilus, Lord of Hunger

“He is like a wound in the force, once he consumes the Light Side he will devour the Dark Side as well until there is no force at all.”

Darth Nihilus was a leading Sith during the “Sith Triumvirate” , which was a ruling faction of  Sith prior to the Clone Wars.  He was an excellent swordsman, but his true power lied in his consuming ability, hence the name “Lord of Hunger”.  He had the stunning ability to drain a victim of its force ability permanently, and while doing so, doubled his own strength.  He was killed by the Jedi Exile when the Triumvirate was overthrown.
