The Sith Code – How to become a Sith Lord
With the new Star Wars Online game Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) getting ready for release. Time to brush up on your Star Wars lore. If you plan to travel the path of the Dark Side, it will do you good to know the Sith Code and its meaning. It will serve you well.
The Code of the Sith is little known compared to the code of the Jedi itself. It appears to have emerged sometime after the Jedi mantra, and is believed by many to have been devised in direct opposition.
The Sith Code
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory my chains are broken. The Force will set me free.
As the great Sith Oordis once said “The principles of the Sith are more than just words to memorize. Learn them, understand them. They will lead you to the true power of the Force; the power of the dark side.”
By looking at the structure and lines of the Sith code, you can see where the “it was created as opposed to the Jedi version” theory has credence. “Peace is a lie, there is only passion” directly challenges the Jedi lines “There is no emotion, there is peace” and “There is no passion, there is serenity”. The Sith clearly intended to make a powerful statement, while directly mocking the ideals of the Jedi Order.
What does the Sith code mean?
- The Code of the Sith then teaches that the root of all power is emotion and passion, they are your strength and should be openly embraced.
- A Sith must trust no one but himself, only serving what he or she is powerful enough to take.
- The law of nature is “survival of the fittest”, a Sith understands this better than any other; conflict is the only real test of an individual’s ability and the only way to grow.
- The Sith Code teaches its disciples to never stop striving for perfection, to break their chains and reach their potential for ultimate power.
- A Sith understands that the Force is there to serve, it is the true source of power. He harnesses the power of the Dark Side, bend it to your whim, and let it burn itself out.
To summarize the Sith Code
A Sith’s goal is ultimate power, ultimate strength, and complete dominance. They must always look for conflict and never miss an opportunity for personal advancement. The path to supremacy means embracing emotion and letting the Dark Side flourish.
Follow the Code of the Sith and victory will be absolute.
