Revenge of the True Sith

Author
Time

The True Sith, the powerful ancestors of the primitives who the Rakata and Jedi Exiles found on Korriban, the Dark Lords of the Rakata, want revenge. The last Sith ghosts have been destroyed by the New Republic and New Jedi Order. The True Sith watched with horror as Palpatine fell into a reactor and Exar Kun’s spirit was killed. No traces of the Sith species or Order remain in the parts of the galaxy known to humans, and the True Sith have decided that it’s time to take things into their own hands.

Some notes:

  • Kalgrath, Palpatine clones, Lumiya, A’Sharad Hett, and the Vong don’t exist.
  • All spirits and holocrons on Korriban are destroyed by the time of TPM.
  • The True Sith colonized Korriban. The Sith species we all know are the primitive descendents of colonists who lost contact with their fellow Sith.
  • The Rakata were corrupted and puppeteered by the True Sith, hence the True Sith being the Dark Lords of the Rakata. The True Sith also corrupted Xendor, the first Dark Lord of the Sith.
  • Like in the actual EU, the Sith species uses the dark side because of their culture, not because of their genetics.
  • The only things that have to happen are the original Jedi Schism and resulting formation of the Dark Lords of the Sith and the events of the original trilogy. Things like TOR don’t have to happen.
  • My inspirations are an early Vong concept described in The Essential Reader’s Companion and fan speculation that occured in between KOTOR II’s and TOR’s release.

A sith species invasion motivated by the desire to avenge the sith holocaust is perhaps one of the biggest missed opportunities of the post-ROTJ timeline.

Couldn’t agree more. What better way to cap things off than with the original source of the main evil of the franchise?

I think this is an awesome concept. It is new (not another Palpatine rehash), but still fitting to the rest of the saga (whereas the Vong were so different than the Empire they don’t make much sense as the big bads).

Long live the Sith!

Why do they themselves have to be evil…it seems more thematically proper for the sith to be victims and for the new republic to answer for the crimes of the old
