LEADER: Dark Overlord of the Sith
SECONDARY LEADERS: The Council of the Nine
Our Sith Empire, here in our board, is not the canon Sith Empire. Remember that this is an AU and so is this faction. It is a very recent faction and as such it hasn't a very long or rich background.
After Malak, usurped Revan Empire, many of the Sith under him, rioted and left him and his Empire, which prompt to an easy defeat of Malak Empire at the hands of the joined forces of the Republic, Jedi Order and Mandalorians.
Those that left Malak Empire traveled to the Unknown Regions and there they found a planet that was inhabited by a very ancient, powerful darkside society. These "Sith" had been the part of an expedition that had crash-landed and been stuck in the planet for thousand of years.
They thrived and kept the old traditions of the First Sith's alive. When both factions gathered, instead of trying to kill each other, they negotiated. Then after months of negotiations, a new Sith Empire was created. A mix of the modern and ancient Sith philosophies created a new and powerful faction.
For the next years, while the Jedi Order was able to rebuilt itself, so did this new Sith Empire, one that considered itself, the True Sith Empire. The strongest Sith Lords and Ladies then went through a very ancient Sith Ritual, that would decide who would be the Head of the Empire.
While some Sith withdrew themselves from the Ritual, the more ambitious of them, decided to venture through it. In the end, only one Sith returned from the said Ritual alive and was crowned the Over-Lord of all Sith's.
All Sith bowed their knees to the man.
Then the Over-Lord, chose the Council of the Nine, from the surviving strongest Sith. These nine men and women, only answered to the the Over-Lord and to him alone. All others, Generals, Masters and so on, answered to them and to the Over-Lord.
Organization of the Sith Empire
Dark Overlord of the Sith
The de-facto leader and ruler of all Sith and of the Sith Empire. The current and first Dark Overlord of the Sith, was chosen in a very ancient and deadly Ritual. He rose from the Ritual more powerful than he ever was and the energies of the Force surrounding him are remarkably intimidating.
To help him rule over the Empire, the Overlord, created the Council of Nine, under his wife and Consort suggestion.
The Council of the Nine
The Pyramids of Influence are the nine domains of politics and power in the Sith Empire. Each of the nine Pyramids, are headed by a member of the Council of the Nine, and between them they encompass the entire Empire. Through the Pyramids, the Council control's and oversees the day-to-day operations of the Empire, and every individual and organization within the Empire ultimately answers to at least one of the Councilors through the hierarchy of the Pyramids.
Once the Over-Lord was anointed, he created the Council of the Nine, a group of the surviving nine Dark Lords of the Sith who handle the day-to-day running of the Empire. Each Councilor took an aspect of the Empire as their own to rule, ranging from joint control of the Imperial Military to the judicial regulation of Imperial society to the ensuring that the Sith Order remains loyal to Sith philosophy.
Each Council member is responsible for overseeing their own Pyramid and dealing with any problems that arises.
The Nine Pyramids are:
The Pyramid of The Force.
