#22. Darth Traya

Darth Traya was a human, female Sith Lord from an unknown world. As a Sith Lord, Traya trained the likes of Darth Sion and Darth Nihilus, who were some of the most powerful Sith Lords to ever ignite a red lightsaber. But before her time as a Sith Lord, Darth Traya was known by another name: Kreia.

Kreia was a Jedi Master who trained many students in the ways of the Force. Kreia was also known for being a Jedi Historian. Her fellow Jedi viewed her teachings as strange and unusual, but no one could accuse her of never challenging her students. Kreia would ask questions, to her students, that couldn’t be answered right away, such as:

“Is a lightsaber still a lightsaber if it loses its power?” 

“If a Jedi lost his (or her) Force powers, is that person still a Jedi?”

After a while, the Jedi Council rebuked Kreia and her teachings. Thus, ending her time with the Jedi Order. After going off to find herself, Kreia had an encounter with a few Sith sorcerers, and fell under one of their seductive spells, and transformed into Darth Traya, the Lord of Betrayal.
