    Rule of Two Sith Lords 

Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus

The twin of Jaina, Jacen was born after his sister. As he grew older, he became concerned with the direction of the Jedi Order, fearing that any aggression or even violent defensive action could send the whole Order to the Dark Side. He eventually decided that some evil had to be fought, and after being captured by the Yuuzhan Vong and tutored by Veregre, he developed a new philosophy in which how the Force was used did not matter, but the intent behind it. After helping end the Yuuzhan Vong War, Jacen went on a five year odyssey across the galaxy, training with numerous Force using groups. During this time, he had a vision of his unborn daughter Allana standing side-by-side with a "Dark Man" and ruling the galaxy. He set out to stop it any way he could, eventually falling to the Dark Side and becoming Darth Caedus, taking over the Galactic Alliance in the process. He was killed by Jaina in a duel at the end of the Second Galactic Civil War, but had successfully altered the future of the galaxy, preventing Allana from falling to the Dark Side.

Lumiya / Shira Brie

Considered by some to be the "proto-Mara Jade" (ie. redheaded/green-eyed Imperial assassin). Of course, her path didn't lead to as nearly a fulfilling life as Mara's.


    One Sith 

Lomi Plo

A Sith Master, Lomi Plo and her apprentice Welk were captured by the Yuuzhan Vong early in the Yuuzhan Vong War. They were used to train Voxyn on the worldship over Myrkr, where a Jedi strike team found and freed them. They cooperated to destroy the Voxyn Queen, but Lomi and Welk took advantage of the team to steal a ship they found to escape, accidentally taking wounded Jedi Knight Raynar Thul with them. After crashing in the Unknown Regions, they were saved by the Killiks, and Lomi took over the species as the head of Gorog, the Dark Nest, and instituted a war of expansion against the Chiss and Galactic Alliance.


Lomi Plo's apprentice, Welk used to be a member of the Shadow Academy until its destruction. Joining the One Sith, he was captured alongside his master by the Yuuzhan Vong. After escaping Myrkr and crashing in the Unknown Regions, Welk became the Night Herald of the Dark Nest.

Darth Wyyrlok I

A Chagrian Sith Lord, Darth Wyyrlok served as Darth Krayt's intermediary while his master lay in stasis. Through their mental link, Wyyrlok would carry out Krayt's wishes and direct the actions of the One Sith and their agents throughout the galaxy.

Kell Douro

A Force-sensitive Anzat assassin who serves the One Sith, Kell is searching for a Jedi to drink their "soup", believing that it will unlock the secrets of fate to him. He is dispatched by Darth Wyyrlok to investigate a Force vision Krayt had, leading him into a conflict with Jedi Knight Jaden Korr.

Nyss and Syll Nenn

Twin Umbaran assassins for the One Sith, they have the unique ability to negate other beings connection to the Force and shut down lightsabers. They are sent by Darth Wyyrlok to kill Jedi Knight Jaden Korr and use a Rakatan mind spear to place his memories in a One Sith controlled clone in order to create a sleeper agent in the Jedi Order.

    Lost Tribe of The Sith 

Sith Lady Vestara Khai

A Sith apprentice in the Lost Tribe, Vestara was identified as one of the most gifted apprentices of the Tribe by Ship when it arrived on Kesh, causing her to be taken as an apprentice by High Lady Olaris Rhea. She eventually was sent on a strike team to kill Luke and Ben Skywalker, but was captured by them and forced into an alliance to defeat Abeloth while also dealing with her attraction to Ben.
  • Affably Evil: She's really quite nice for a Sith. She'd still gut you without a second thought if she thought it would advance her goals, but at least she'd have the decency to feel bad about it.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the dark side, possibly.
  • Bastard Understudy
  • Daddy's Little Villain: To her father, Gavar.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Dating Catwoman: With Ben.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In Vortex, Lord Taalon beats her up and after she sees that he is turning into an Eldritch Abomination, she kills him.
  • Dual Wielding: She tends to hold a lightsaber in one hand and a sword or dagger in the other. She is ambidextrous.
  • Enemy Mine: With Luke and Ben against Abeloth.
  • Good Feels Good: In Ascension, Vestara says this is one of the reasons she wants to become a Jedi.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: She ultimately settles on Heel.
  • Self-Made Orphan: She's forced to kill her father after Abeloth corrupted him, and her mother dies shortly before this.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Part of the reason why she chooses to remain a Sith.
  • Tragic Villain: She sees herself as this after she commits murder to save Ben from toxic fumes.
  • Villain Respect: After her first encounter with the Skywalkers, in which her Master and every other member of the Sith strike team end up dead at their hands, she salutes Luke as she flees out of respect for his fighting skills.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: At the end of Vortex, after she kills Taalon, who was "too high above her station", Vestara can't risk going back to the Lost Tribe, and willingly stays with Luke and Ben.
  • Well Done Daughter Girl: Ben mocks her for this:
    "Yes, dear Papa." "No, dear Papa." "You are amazing, dear Papa."

Sith Saber Gavar Khai

Vestara's father and a high ranking Sith Saber of the Lost Tribe.
  • Artificial Limbs: He lost one of his forearms in a duel with Luke and had it replaced with a cybernetic arm. He was worried that with the Lost Tribe's obsession for perfection, it would get looked down upon, but decided that it was too strong and powerful not to have.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: By Abeloth, causing him to turn on the Lost Tribe.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder
  • The Dragon: To High Lord Sarasu Taalon and Abeloth.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Which surprises Luke. Gavar married his wife because he loved her, despite her not having any ability with the Force. Once Abeloth corrupts him, he no longer cares for his family, taunting Vestara with her mother's death.
  • Happily Married: He married his wife, Lahka, because he loved her, even though she wasn't Force sensitive. However, after Abeloth starts messing with Gavar's head, he allies with her even after she destroys most of Tahv, killing Lahka.
  • Killed Off for Real

Grand Lord Darish Vol

The current Grand Lord of the Lost Tribe of Sith, Darish Vol presides over the Tribe as it returns to the galaxy after being trapped on Kesh for 5000 years, directing the formation of a massive fleet to launch a surprise attack on the galaxy.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority
  • Badass Grandpa: He's in his eighties and still manages to hold onto the title of Grand Lord. He even manages to Mind Rape Abeloth in a mental duel.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Abeloth. Unfortunately for him, Abeloth doesn't like sharing anything.
  • Decapitation Presentation: Abeloth shows Vol's head to Workan to announce her takeover of the Lost Tribe.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In Ascension, he comes face to face with Abeloth's true form, recognizing her for what she is and the evil that she represents. Far from trying to take control of it or enslave it like the Sith had planned up until that point, he roundly rejects any chance of alliance in horror at how evil she truly is, culminating in a mental duel that results in Abeloth being wounded almost as badly as she was in her encounters with Luke Skywalker.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Luke Skywalker.
  • Evil Old Folks
  • Oh, Crap!: When he realized how powerful Abeloth was and how much of a fool he was to think he could exploit her.
  • Sorcerous Overlord

Sith Saber Tola Annax

A female Keshiri, Tola Annax served in the Sith fleet as one of its leading commanders. She battled against the Skywalkers on Nam Chorios and later split from the Lost Tribe to join Abeloth, who sacrifices her in a trap for the Jedi.
  • Bad Boss: She sacrifices her minions to study the Skywalkers' lightsaber skills and styles, and to wear them down for when she leads a large ambush against them.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Dark Action Girl
  • The Dragon: To Gavar Khai.
  • Karmic Death: Just as she sacrificed her minions against the Skywalkers, Abeloth sacrifices her in a plot against the Jedi.
  • White Hair, Black Heart
  • Why Am I Ticking?: Abeloth imbues her with explosive amounts of Dark Side power and leaves her stranded on Upekzar, knowing the Jedi were investigating Sith worlds. When they arrived, Annax exploded, causing groundquakes and a volcano to erupt.

Appentice Ahri Raas

    The Community 


A clone of Jedi Knight Jaden Korr, and the only clone created at the Imperial cloning facility on the Frozen Moon that does not suffer from madness and genetic defects.
  • Gray Eyes: One of the ways that Jaden and Kheydan realize that he's a clone of Jaden.
  • Only Sane Man
  • Sole Survivor: He's the only clone to survive, alongside Grace.

    Dark Jedi 

Alema Rar

A female Twi'lek, Alema and her twin sister Numa were supporters of Jedi Master Kyp Durron during the Yuuzhan Vong War, leading a resistance movement on the planet of New Plympto that eventually resulted in the planet being destroyed. While attempting to escape on a refugee vessel, Numa became the first victim of the Voxyn, and her death planted a seed of darkness inside Alema that would grow throughout the war and beyond. During the Swarm War, Alema fell under the sway of the Dark Nest and betrayed the Jedi Order, becoming the Night Herald of Lomi Plo. Over the course of the war final battles, she became maimed by Luke and Leia, losing usage of her left arm, half her right lekku, half of one of her feet, and numerous scars when a beast tried to eat her on Tenupe. After escaping Tenupe, Alema became obsessed with punishing Leia for her wounds and the destruction of the Dark Nest, mostly by attempting to kill Han and assisting Lumiya in turning Jacen to the Dark Side. The Jedi formed a task force consisting of Jagged Fel and her former comrades Jaina Solo and Zekk to hunt her down, culminating in her death at the hands of Jag in the hidden asteroid base of Darth Vectivus.

Lord Nyax / Irek Ismaren

  • A God Am I: Well, abstract concepts like "god" are probably beyond him, but he certainly considers himself the most superior being in the universe.
  • Arc Villain: He's arguably the main antagonist of the Enemy Lines duology, but doesn't survive it and has pretty much nothing to do with the Myth Arc of the New Jedi Order.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: He's got lightsabers attached to his arms... and his hands... and his legs...
  • Cyborg
  • Emotion Bomb: He can overwhelm anyone who comes near him with negative emotions. It's enough to break the wills of most muggles and force them to serve him, and can seriously give pause even to a Jedi Master.
  • Humanoid Abomination
  • Large and in Charge: Roughly ten feet tall, thanks to experiments his Mad Scientist mother performed on him.
  • Psychopathic Man Child
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Or in a stasis chamber on Coruscant. When the Vong took the planet and cut the power, it set him loose.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Killed his own mother. Of course, he didn't exactly recognize her anyone when he did it...
  • That Man Is Dead: Described in the narration as "The thing with Irek Ismaren's face."
  • Took a Level in Badass: As Irek, he was a supporting villain in Children of the Jedi. Then in Enemy Lines he came back as this thing...
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His higher brain functions are pretty much nil, but even on pure instinct he's a monstrously powerful Force-user and a capable of annhilating approx. twenty Yuuzhan Vong warriors with minimal effort.
  • The Voiceless: Again, with next to no higher brain functions, he's completel non-vocal. He communicates through crude Force-based telepathy.
  • Was Once a Man


A former member of the Old Jedi Order, Dray fell to the Dark Side at some point and suffered brain damage after being shot in the head. After having visions of the coming Yuuzhan Vong invasion, Dray came to beleive that Jedi Apprentice Finn Galfridian would play a key role in the war and attempted to make him his apprentice, until Finn discovered that Dray had fallen to the Dark Side.
