The Sith is a cult that was created out of the deep frustration of many Jedi padawans. The Jedi were all about patience,
but to become a full fledged Jedi Master would take many years of hard training and persistance. Many padawans wanted the
awesome powers of the force immediately, and became frustrated with the long wait. And out of this frustration, the Sith Order
Ulic Quel Droma, one of the more tragic jedi, opted to personally investigate the sith, and destroy the cult from within.
However, he was weaker than he thought to the allure of the dark side of the force. He thus helped the sith create the ultimate
weapon.... the Dark Reaper. The Dark Reaper was a ship that could sap the force from living beings. Most creatures could die
from getting too close. If it were no for Ulic's efforts in teaching the Jedi how to harness the force around them, becoming
immune to the Dark Reaper's effects, the Sith would have destroyed all of the Jedi easily.
The Sith's downfall did not come, however, at the end of the Sith Wars, It came from within. Sith Masters fueded over
the control of the order, that is, until one of the famous Sith heroes, Darth Bane, devised and idea that only two sith
lords should survive at a time. It is thus, that the sith had survived by a Master taking an Apprentice, and then the Apprentice
took an Apprentice,So-on, and So-on.
The Sith were thought to be extinct, that is, until Darth Maul and Darth Sidious emerged during the affair between the
Trade Federation and Naboo.
Maul was adbruptly killed by Obi-Wan after killing his master Qui-Gon.
Many Years later, the Sith where seemingly finally eradicated by the Young Jedi Luke, when Vader killed the Emperor and
died from wounds from his son's blade.
The Sith were to re-ammerge many times more.
For you never can truly destroy Evil.
Many Sith Heroes include:
Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Darth Sidious, Darth Maul, Darth Bane and Exar Kun.
