#2. Darth Plagueis

Darth Plagueis is my favorite Sith Lord of all-time. This Sith Lord of the Munn species, became so obsessed with the study of midi-chlorian manipulation that he wouldn’t eat or sleep for weeks. This dedication to his work would eventually pay off in a big way.

Plagueis only had one apprentice: Darth Sidious. Plagueis and his apprentice worked tirelessly at trying to crack the secret to immortality. They also came up with a plan to destroy the Galactic Republic with their new Sith Empire. Plagueis taught Sidious everything he knew, including the ability to blend in, to be “hidden in plain sight.” Before he met Sidious, Darth Plagueis was a businessman and somewhat of a politician.

Sidious took on his first apprentice in Maul, and he eventually realized that he no longer had any use for his Master. Obeying the Rule of Two, Sidious killed Darth Plagueis in his sleep.
