#3. Darth Vitiate (The Sith Emperor)

Vitiate was a Dark Lord of the Sith who rebuilt the Sith Empire, which was destroyed in the Great Hyperspace War. When you look at him, Vitiate doesn’t look like one of the most powerful Sith Lords of all-time, but he was. The Emperor was the embodiment of everything the Sith was.

As a child, Vitiate felt no affection towards any of his family. He ended up killing his mother, stepfather and birth father without hesitation, without mercy. His powers went into hyperdrive from this point on. He realized how much his hate, anger, rage and pain fueled him, he took this and ran with it. Not only did he feed of his own internal feelings of hate, but he also fed off of others pain and suffering.

The Sith Emperor had immense power in the Force. He mastered the ability of transfer presence, in which, even after his physical body died, he could continue living on in another being’s body. His goal was to live and rule forever.
