Sith Lord

A Sith Lord presides over the Sith Order. The Sith Order are depicted in Star Wars as an ancient monastic and cultist organization of supernaturally gifted Force-wielders driven by a Machiavellian agenda of galactic domination and revenge against their arch-rivals, the Jedi Order. Sith are ruthless and totalitarian, in which a supreme authority is concentrated in a single individual granted the honorific Dark Lord of the Sith. Transfer of power is conducted through state-sanctioned assassinations: when a Sith Lord grows complacent, begins to show weakness, and is eventually killed, their property and authority are transferred to the apprentice who killed them. Sith teach their apprentices to revere the dark side of the Force
