- "Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me."
- — Extract from the Sith Code
The Order of the Sith is an ancient organisation of Force practitioners skilled in the ways of the Dark Side and followers of the Sith teachings. It is led by the Dark Lord and his Council, who set the goals and tasks of the Order in accordance with the aims of the Galactic Empire. Since the founding of the Empire, the Order has served the Emperor as an extension of his will and has drawn its recruits from the ranks of the New Order. The Dark Lord holds a seat on the Emperor's Inner Circle as one of his most trusted advisors and the expert on all matters related to the Force.
Comprised of the heads of the six Enclaves, the Sith Council rules over the Order from their meeting hall in the top spire of the Sith Temple. These Enclave Heads represent the elite among the Order, having perfected their art and established their own unique ideology which supports the ideals of the Order and the Empire. Their meetings are ruled over by the Dark Lord of the Sith. The Emperor is also considered a council member regardless of his sensitivity to the Force.
The Six Enclaves
Representing six different ideologies, the Six Enclaves were formed by Darth Virsunas in early Year 15 as a means to diversify culture within the Order and provide more dedicated training on an individual basis. Each Enclave is led by an Enclave Head who is granted a peerage by the Throne for the duration of their time serving in the position.
Each Enclave is free to adopt an organizational structure within their ranks, but this is not required and depends largely on the ideology the Enclave follows. Some fall naturally into an organized system of responsibility, while others subscribe more easily to a system where the Enclave Head holds full and ultimate authority within the Enclave's confines.
The composition of the Sith Council is as follows:
- Darth Guilus, Galactic Emperor
- Darth Surra, Dark Lady of the Sith
- Darth Venin, Head of the Saarai Enclave
- Darth Sicarius, Head of the Sergeti Enclave
- Darth Anhrefn, Head of the Chwayat Enclave
- Darth Taral, Head of the Jiaasjen Enclave
- Darth Draxes, Head of the Desaevio Enclave
- Darth Epistus, Head of the Kintik Enclave
Ranks Within the Order
The following ranks are known within the Sith Order:
Dark Lord of the Sith - Presiding over the Sith Council, the Dark Lord is the supreme authority within the Order.
Sith Master - This rank is granted to Sith upon the achievement of mastery over most aspects of the Dark Side of the Force, and supreme devotion to the Order. They are further granted a Darth name at this stage.
Sith Knight - Sith Knights are experienced Sith who have survived the intense and harsh training of a Sith Apprentice to become powerful agents of the Order.
Apprentice - As a Sith's power grows, the Order recognizes their progression by advancing them to the rank of Apprentice.
Acolyte - This rank is given to all Sith upon their acceptance into the Order, and represents the beginning of their journey to the Dark Side.
