"A Sith Lord is…?"
"A being who stands against the Jedi and their control over the Republic."
Mitth'raw'nuruodo and Kinman Doriana[src]

Sith Lord was a title that was conferred on members of various Sith Orders who had both considerable knowledge of and strength in the dark side.

The New Sith Empire under Darth Ruin was in power during the Dark Ages of the Jedi. Sith Lords then stalked the galaxy, until the organization eventually fell to infighting, and broke into individual Sith Lords.

Lord Kaan's The Brotherhood of Darkness gave all Sith Lords nominal equal status among the Sith. This strategy was created to prevent the Sith from killing each other, which had been the natural order of the dark side up until the formation of the Brotherhood.

At the end of the first war between the Jedi and Sith, Bane saw this as a violation of the natural order of the Sith and cleansed the Order by destroying Lord Kaan's Brotherhood and supplanting it with his own Rule of Two; two Sith, one master to embody the power and one to crave it. In most cases, the apprentice was trained until he or she was strong enough in the Force to kill his or her master.

After the Galactic Civil War, Darth Krayt abandoned the Rule of Two to rebuild the Sith, thus multiplying the population of the Sith Lords hugely, all under the rule of Darth Krayt. They then attacked the Empire after the Sith–Imperial War and ruled the galaxy.

The term "Sith Lord" generally encompassed members of both sexes, although some female Sith such as Lumiya, Tahiri Veila, Olaris Rhea and Vestara Khai were styled Sith Lady.

Originally, "Sith Lord" referred to a high-ranking member of the Sith race's society. As the Sith civilization progressed, many claimed the title and battled against each other to earn the superior title of Sith'ari: the Sith Overlord; Adas and Dathka Graush were such Overlords.

Behind the scenes

In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, the Sith Lord is one of the six prestige character classes which the player character can select after reaching Level 15, if he or she is leaning toward the dark side.

A Sith Lord named Darth Homiiz was planned to appear in Dark Horse's comic Jedi: Yoda but was cut from the final version.
