    Avus Rann, the First Emperor in the history of the Sith Empire, known for his ambitious rise to power and eventual downfall. He was born into obscurity and initially held the title of Grand Overseer, representing the Sith Overseers on the Dark Council. His ascension to power and proclamation of the Empire marked the beginning of the modern Sith Empire.

    Early Life​

    Little is known about Avus Rann's early life, as he hailed from a remote and unremarkable Sith lineage. However, his keen intellect and ambition did not go unnoticed. Rising through the ranks of the Sith, he gained recognition for his strategic brilliance and unyielding determination. It was these qualities that eventually earned him the esteemed position of Grand Overseer.

    As Grand Overseer, Avus Rann wielded significant influence within the Sith hierarchy. His ability to unite and inspire his fellow Overseers was unparalleled, earning him both admiration and envy among the Dark Council members.

    The Ascension​

    The event that catapulted Avus Rann to sovereignty over the Empire was a calculated and audacious coup. Working alongside his cunning apprentice, known only as "Auditor," Avus Rann staged a dramatic confrontation within the inner chambers of the Sith Sanctum on Korriban.
    His strategy was threefold; the use of the powers gained from artifacts amongst his wide collection, utilizing the dedication of a generation of Sith who he trained as Grand Overseer, and manipulations of the existing Sith political system.
    Avus Rann, his apprentice Auditor, and a mobilized force of unified Sith and Sith Troopers marched upon the Dark Council while they met at a convocation that Avus himself had summoned. Upon entering, he utilized the powers of the ancient Sith that he had researched, taking the Council off-guard, severing their connection to the Force, and consuming the essence of their Force. The congregate essence of their dark energy erupted out of his eyes; it is said he fainted and had to be carried out of the Sanctum by his apprentice.

    Avus Rann and Auditor emerged victorious but not unscathed. Auditor, in his masters' stead, led the rest of Avus' forces to purge Dark Council loyalists across Korriban and other Sith-aligned worlds, and Avus' victory was undeniable. As a result, Avus became the first sole leader of the Sith since Revan.


    The Proclamation​

    The visage of the helmet of Tulak Hord, pouring with the red force essence of the Dark Council he slew, was seen across all civilized worlds. Avus proclaimed the first Galactic Empire, and declared total war against the Republic. His rule was marked by his ultimate conviction and ambition to enact his vision of the Sith. His initial priorities were on expansion and conquest, solidifying the Empire's dominion across the Galaxy. Republic worlds quickly fell to the iron grasp of his new Empire, as the Jedi were unprepared to defend against hordes united in militarist ethos.

    For years, the Empire fought against the Republic, and quickly the new Empire built up its resources, creating a war machine for the sole purpose of destroying the Republic. It seemed on the verge of winning the war.

    Emperor Avus Rann's reign was characterized by a unique set of philosophies and an unrelenting quest for power that set him apart as a formidable Sith ruler. His approach to Sith ideology and his relentless pursuit of supremacy were hallmarks of his rule.


    Avus Rann's understanding of the Force was deeply rooted in the pursuit of power. He believed that true mastery of the Force went beyond the traditional divisions of light and dark. In contrast to conventional Jedi or Sith teachings, he saw the Force as a neutral entity to be harnessed for dominion over others. This perspective led him to explore the depths of the Force, seeking the knowledge and abilities that would elevate him to unprecedented heights.

    Throughout his reign, Avus Rann displayed a fervent interest in ancient artifacts and relics of great power. He considered these items as conduits to unlock hidden potential within the Force. Rann's relentless pursuit of such artifacts drove him to dispatch expeditions to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, often resulting in the acquisition of rare and potent relics. These artifacts served as both symbols of his authority and sources of increased power.

    Avus Rann believed that true power resided not only in one's mastery of the Force but also in the ability to manipulate and control others. Rann used charm, deceit, and calculated maneuvers to orchestrate political shifts and turn rivals into unwitting allies. His ability to read individuals, to form meaningful relationships, to either exploit their vulnerabilities or exploit their strengths, made him into the man that changed the Galaxy.

    Foundations of the Empire​

    Emperor Avus Rann's legacy extended beyond his individual reign, as he created the foundations of the modern Sith organizations. His vision and meticulous planning resulted in the creation of foundational documents that continue to shape the Sith's power structure in the galaxy.

    Emperor Avus Rann's mastery over political tactics not only secured his own dominance but also laid the foundation for the enduring structure of the modern Sith. His influence continues to shape the Sith's quest for power and control, making him a legendary figure in the annals of Sith history.


    However, as history has shown, power is rarely absolute and enduring. Emperor Avus Rann's reign would eventually crumble from within. Auditor, his once-loyal apprentice, conspired with several influential Dark Council members to orchestrate his overthrow. Their motivations and grievances against the Emperor remain a subject of speculation, but it is widely believed that a combination of personal ambition and the ever-growing ambition of the Emperor fueled their rebellion.

    The overthrow, executed with surgical precision, saw Auditor and the rebellious Dark Council members seize control of the Empire. Emperor Avus Rann was dethroned, and Auditor ascended to the position of Sith Emperor. Avus Rann's fate afterward remains shrouded in mystery, with some accounts suggesting he staged his death, while others say he was finally slain that day on Korriban.

    Emperor Avus Rann's legacy is one of intrigue, ambition, and the ever-present struggle for power within the Sith Empire. His rise and fall serve as a cautionary tale within Sith history, a reminder that even the most powerful rulers are not immune to the treacherous currents of Sith politics and ambition.
