Sabahattin Dere Posted August 15, 2004 Share Posted August 15, 2004 The most recent Sion identity thread suggests a number of interesting speculations who the Sith Lords may be (which in turn imply other things to the obsessed mind who can't help making up TSL plots for himself). Let's assume that Sion is indeed 'King Ommin'; OR, that Sion is modeled after him. That is: A former Dark Side sorcerer who suffered a terrible trauma, and in overcoming the affliction, grew stronger than he hoped to become. This much at least is pretty much in tune with what we see on the official site. Now: This answers the question, at least for one Sith Lord, concerning 'what the Sith Lords were duing during Malak's reign'. Sion was busy advancing his mastery of the Dark Side. By sheer power of will, he was so successful that he not only managed to get himself upright, but also became strong enough to be considered a Sith Lord. He proceeded to inquire what had happened during the time he spent 'recuperating', and found out that powerful Sith Lords had either: -(Kotor LS ending) taken advantage of a weakened republic, to destroy the Jedi, and cripple the republic -(Kotor DS ending) somehow sent Revan into exile, and pursued attacking the republic and the Jedi themselves [more about this below] Now [and this was brought up long ago by I think Dark Wanderer]: It has been mentioned by the devs. that we meet Sion a number of times throughout the game. The first, presumably, is when the main character has not yet attained enough power to kill Sion ---so why, one wonders, during that encounter, he doesn't kill us? Keeping in mind the latest speculations on Sion, the answer could be that being a 'minor Sith Lord' yet -just out of the hospital-; *Sion is seeking an apprentice* to bring down the other Sith Lords. So he's got plans of his own, and once he becomes aware of our (i.e. another emerging, promising force-user) presence, he tries to trick us into the Dark Side to become his right hand. This explains why he doesn't kill the main character on the first encounter; and why we get to meet him more than once: He's trying to convince us. And: Having a hand in the political strife on Onderon, he could be trying to establish a school of his own (the shoulder-robed guys), again to fight both the other Sith Lords, and the remains of the Republic, with the additional help he would get from his new 'academy' -or at least, band of strong followers. So, here are the Sith Lords: Darth X: The masked guy. This one is the strongest; so much that his initial plans were to let the upstart Malak destroy the republic with his 'toy', the Star Forge, and only then to wipe out Malak, to become the master of a Jedi-less galaxy. He could not foresee, that Revan was indeed alive, though. As soon as Malak was out of the way, he attacked: Revan countered the attack, but mysteriously, he became lost during the conflict. (Works with both Kotor endings) Darth X was thus not only 'weakened' by Revan, but he now had competing Sith Lords to deal with as well. Darth Y: This could be anything. The former apprentice to the masked guy who declared independence? A powerful Dark Jedi? A 'freelance' Sith Lord like the others? Master of a special sort of Magic which makes him invincible, though he may not be the greatest of Sith, whatever.... Darth Y(s) took advantage of the power vacuum after the fall of Malak, and stepped on the scene. Darth Sion: The minor Sith Lord, who was out of the whole thing for quite a while; he's trying to catch up with the other guys. He's the most sinister one and works in secret. He needs either to have a strong apprentice, or to have an army. He approaches the main character, with the intention of taking him on as apprentice. His covert activities on Onderon (remember the latest Game Spot interview which does mention that we meet Sion in some underground realm on Onderon) are also directed towards a similar end.
