The Sith have a rich and tumultuous history within the framework of the Star Wars universe. From their beginnings on Korriban, to the rise of numerous Imperial threats against the Old Republic, to the Rule of Two that culminated in Palpatine’s rise to power, and beyond to Darth Krayt’s One Sith ascendency of the galaxy. Since Star Wars was released in 1977, Expanded Universe creative teams have enriched the tapestry of Sith history, and the current Knight Errant creates a new thread in this tapestry.
Set 30-odd years before Darth Bane extinguishes the old misguided Sith and institutes the Rule Of Two, Knight Errant focuses on a time where the Sith Empire is nothing more than a large galactic territory shattered by the greed and quest for control among bickering Sith Lords. The ruling Sith impose authoritarian regimes upon the people who populate their worlds, rich with propaganda and continually destroying the wills of the populace.
