The Sith are a group of dark side Force users that use brutal and manipulative means to quench their, endless, thirst for absolute power. Their eyes are often blotted yellow with a sadistic underlie. With their powerful, yet subtle, black robes, the Sith wield lightsabers with a blade that glows blood red. They hold a deep contempt and disdain for the Jedi Order that is second to none.

Although the Sith rule with an iron fist, they follow a specific code. Call it a set of rules, or guidelines, but to the Sith, these mandates are life:

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I  gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

#25. Savage Opress

Savage Opress, a Sith Lord of the Dathomirian Zabrak species, the older brother of Darth Maul. Savage Opress was a part of the Nightbrothers village on his homeworld of Dathomir. This village was on the far side of the planet, and everyone who lived there [Nightbrothers village] were Force-sensitive.

After Mother Talzin put him under some dark magic, after he was put through the Selection, and after being betrayed a few different times, Savage Opress only desired one thing: find his younger brother, Darth Maul. And Opress was willing to steal anything, use anyone, or kill anyone in order to find him. With guidance from Mother Talzin, Opress found himself on Lotho Minor, where he found his long lost brother.

After he found his brother, Opress became Maul’s apprentice. But Maul made it clear that by accepting him as his apprentice, Opress was no longer to address him as brother, but as Master. Since Opress was raised in a warrior culture, he was excellent at hand-to-hand combat. In a duel, if his lightsaber was separated from him, he could still hold his own with just his fists.

Savage Opress would eventually perish at the hands of Darth Sidious.
