I was taught about the true power I wielded by one of the Sith blood. Two decades of his tutelage - and then his eventual death at the hands of the Jedi - resulted in my elevation to a true Sith. With my lightsaber in hand, the dark side as my ally, and an army of soldiers and Sith warriors at my back, I returned to my backwater homeworld and ruled it with an iron fist for seven years, while the Empire claimed its rightful territory. Then the Republic "reclaimed" it - one of their last "victories" before we set fire to Coruscant. I did not leave without leaving my mark, of course...I set the capital ablaze, and everyone in it. That act, and my undying hatred for the Jedi traitors who ran to the rescue of the petty rabble, allowed me to keep my life. It is my hatred that has kept me going since the Treaty of Coruscant.
For ten years, our masters have played the waiting game. If there is one thing that even the Republic scum must admire about us, it is that we are extraordinarily patient. Our patience has paid off, in a way...the Empire has endured for more than a thousand years, despite the destruction inflicted upon it by the Jedi Order. In the end, we will prevail - the Shadow will ultimately snuff out the Light...permanently.
