* ArcVillain: [[spoiler:Of chapter two in ''Knights of the Eternal Throne.'' She attacks Empress Acina and the Outlander causing their shuttles to crash on Dromund Kaas because Saresh wants both of them dead and to try to take over the Alliance. By the end of the chapter it results in her imprisonment or execution depending on the Outlander's choice.]]

* FantasticRacism: She has a low opinion on Mandalorians, seeing them as useful savages when pointed towards the right enemy and advises against trusting them when making an alliance with them.
--> '''Lana''': Predators are beautiful, but they mustn't overrun the ecosystem.



* TheStrategist: Lana does a fair bit of planning herself, and in KotFE she approves of you taking this role. It's clearly a Sith's strategy (she has little concern for civilian casualties) but she admires a clear, long term view of the situation and intelligent approaches to problems.

* {{Adorkable}}: Occasionally, if romanced. As he himself notes, he's really not good at the whole "relationship" thing, but he does try.

-->'''Player Character:''' ''(amused)'' [[LampshadeHanging This is really difficult for you, isn't it?]]
-->'''Theron:''' [[spoiler: ...Marry me, please?]]



* HappilyMarried: [[spoiler:With the player at the end of the Nathema flashpoint, if they so choose.]]



* InTheBack: [[spoiler:Takes a lightsaber through his back and out his chest at the end of the Nathema flashpoint. The player can rescue him and get him medical attention, or leave him to die.]]



* EnemyMine: Her working with Theron Shan starts off as this, though eventually it develops into more of an OddFriendship, at least from her side.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Possibly her biggest flaw is a surprising inability (particularly for a Force-sensitive) to read people. She's not very good at games that need bluffing; she doesn't notice her boss is a traitor until after he sets his plans into motion and twice misses that her most trusted agents are moles all while expressing distrust for people who turn out to be on her side; and she often seems ObliviousToLove, even with people she's explicitly in a romantic relationship with.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:Allowing Theron to be captured by the Revanites]].

[[spoiler:Theron's betrayal deserves special mention, as Lana buys it at face-value instead of cottoning on to be captured by the Revanites]].hints that it's a DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent act, whereas the player can realize this before TheReveal just by trusting Theron's character.]] The Nathema flashpoint even seems to reference this tendency, as Lana ultimately sighs and says she'll trust the player's judgment [[spoiler:on Theron]].

* JustTheFirstCitizen: Despite being a Sith Lord, she goes by her name--her birth name, even--rather than a Sith name or title, as she's uninterested in personal power. [[spoiler:She's referred to as Minister Beniko after being promoted to the head of Sith Intelligence]].

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the Sith Emperor that stands above even the Dark Council, being even more powerful than Revan, who was able to take on the combined forces of the Sith and Jedi while at half his full power. Of the Jedi and Sith, only Satele Shan, The Hero of Tython, the Barsen'thor, the Emperor's Wrath, Darth Nox, Darth Marr, and Darth Mortis (read: the strongest living characters in the galaxy) pose anything resembling a threat to his throne, with Marr warning that no one Jedi or Sith poses a chance against Vitiate's might. [[spoiler:He proves his superiority when he kills Darth Marr with ease.]]

[[folder:In General]]
!!'''The Dark Council'''
''With us, you are ruler of all the Sith, answerable only to the Emperor himself.''
-->Darth Marr to Darth Nox, upon the latter's elevation to the Council

The Dark Council are twelve of the most powerful Sith in the galaxy, administering the Empire and enacting the Emperor's wishes.

*AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Even the least of the Dark Council are not to be trifled with.
*EvenEvilHasStandards: When the depth of the Emperor's evil is revealed, they decide--secretly, at first, but going public with it at the end of the Revanite crisis--to turn the Empire against Vitiate.
*{{Foil}}: For the Jedi Council.
*HighTurnoverRate: Dark Council members die or are forced to resign throughout the original storyline, but special mention goes to Corellia, at the end, wherein three Council members are killed in battle over what might be as single day on the Republic-side planet story, and then (or possibly at the same time or even beforehand) two more are killed during the Warrior and Inquisitor storylines.
*KlingonPromotion: In general, just being strong enough to kill one of their number is not enough to get a Sith a seat on the Council...but it's usually a ''requirement''.
*MinorMajorCharacter: Most Dark Councillors are given relatively little characterization, mention, or screen time.
*PragmaticVillainy: For the most part, they seem to relegate their power plays to mere politics, as opposed to putting lives on the line, possibly in a Devil You Know situation.
*SacrificialLion: Though the fates of all of them have not yet been revealed, the implication is that not all of the Dark Council survived the war with Zakuul. Also:
**TheWorfEffect: Often the appearance of a Dark Councillor in-game after chapter 3 of the original game content is meant to give a sense of accomplishment to a player when their character kills them or to sell how powerful another villain is by defeating them.
*WorthyOpponent: To each other. They're Sith; they generally don't like each other and jockey endlessly for power. But they would not have survived this far if they acted rashly or underestimated foes' capabilities.

*BlueAndOrangeMorality: Mortis is a devotee of Sith philosophy. He believes in it so strongly that [[spoiler:if the Outlander chooses to try to heal the galaxy after taking the Eternal Throne, he is so offended at such power being used for peacekeeping he joins the Order of Zildrog in an attempt to kill the Outlander and destroy the Alliance.]]
*CharacterDeath: If the Outlander [[spoiler:chooses to heal the galaxy as a peacekeeper after defeating Valkorion, he joins the Order of Zildrog and his life energy is taken to power Zildrog's reawakening.



* GoodCounterpart: To Chancellor Saresh. Or at least ''much'' less antagonistic counterpart.

* SoleSurvivor: Unless the PC is the Sith Inquisitor, by the time of ''Knights of the Fallen Empire'' [[spoiler: Acina is the only publicly known surviving member of the Dark Council; the rest are either dead or in hiding, such as Darth Vowrawn]].

[[folder:Darth Arho]]
'''Darth Arho'''

Head of the Sphere of Military Offense after Darth Baras's defeat at the hands of the Emperor's Wrath. Arho was a straightforward, ruthless, coldblooded military commander.

*TheBrute: Arho is described, by Darth Malgus, as a thug too stupid to know the Empire is beaten in the wake of Corellia. (Of course, he's saying that ''to'' the Republic...)
*CharacterDeath: Killed by a Republic hero after being set up by Malgus.
*FrontlineGeneral: Like many Sith warriors.
*HumanSacrifice: When low on health, Arho will attempt to sacrifice a Sith within the room to empower and heal himself.
*SequentialBoss: When fought, Arho briefly stuns the Republic player character(s) and seems like he's about to kill them, until he's interrupted by NPC Jedi who heal the players and are in turn struck down by Arho.
*UnknownRival: Arho does not even realize he's being played by Malgus.
*WeHaveReserves: His command style, and why Imperial players get called in to help.
*YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: How he treats his apprentice Loyat, when she is confronted by the Republic player characters. Even crueler, [[spoiler:she's his lover]].



Head of the Sphere of Military Offense following the demise of Darth Arho, Arkous plans an assault on Tython with the aide of Lana Bemiko to hurt the Jedi Order and capture important artifacts. In truth, he is loyal to the Order of Revan, and works with his allies within that organization to aid Revan's quest to destroy the Emperor once and for all.

* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler: In the storyline after you defeat the Emperor, Theron betrays the Eternal Alliance, either because he feels that [[MeetTheNewBoss you are just as much as a tyrant as Valkorion]] if you took the throne for yourself, or he feels the Eternal Alliance has become corrupt, and either way, he felt he was working for a galaxy free from the Eternal Fleet. You can either ask that he returns to the Alliance or set a bounty on his head, dead or alive.]]
