Darth Bane, the foretold Sith'ari.

Sith'ari was a title that, in the ancient Sith language, meant "Lord" or "Overlord".

The LegendEdit

Sometime during the early history of the First Sith Empire, the coming of the Sith'ari was foretold. Inspired by the legend of Adas, the Sith'ari was prophesied a perfect being, free of all restrictions—the ultimate Sith. The Sith'ari would rise to power to lead the Sith and, according to the legend, destroy them—yet, through their destruction, make them stronger than ever.

Finally, the prophecy was fulfilled by Darth Bane, Lord of the Sith. He fulfilled the prophecy by instating the Rule of Two, leading to a powerful line of Sith but reducing their numbers to only two at a time.

Behind the scenesEdit

Ever since its first mention, fans have speculated who the Sith'ari was. Some of the most notable candidates among this speculation were Darth Revan, Darth Bane, and Darth Vader. The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, however, makes it very clear that Bane is actually the looked-for Sith'ari, thus confirming the assumptions of many fans.
