Not to be an anal retentive SOB, but there can only be 2 sith at any one time.... At the time of this RP it's Vader and the Emperor. You can still be affiliated with the sith as a dark Jedi, but not a true sith. We've made one person change this already and we have to be fair, sorry.
You can have all you ever wanted... I know, but I don't want it. No, I can't want it anymore.

Hmm *rubs chin* The 'Rule of Two', where only two Sith Lords could exsist at one time, master and apprentice, was made by Darth Bane. It wasnt always like that though, what about Lord Kaan's 'Rule by the Strong"? Why only two? It seems to me that Kaan makes more sense.
Well the Jedi vs. Sith comic book did a poor job of keeping with continuity. Basically, the Rule of Two exists because, should more Sith arise, there would be infighting. Darth Bane came out on top, and, being the only Sith left, took an apprentice immediately following the Battle of Ruusan. Bane understood that the nature of the Dark Side was destructive, that the Sith were by nature power-hungry and greedy, and that a large number of Sith concentrated together inevitably leads to the self-destruction of the Sith. Thus, Bane instituted the Rule of Two to ensure the continuation of the Sith. They would have to find new ways to take over the galaxy.
Also, a less talked about reason is insinuated in the Jedi vs. Sith comics: whereas the Light Side of the Force proliferates and multiplies in power the more lifeforms are around, the Dark Side appears to weaken, to become spread thin.
So yeah, basically there are only two Sith at any given time. Any pretenders will be dispatched.

The Rule of Two may have been created to stop the Sith from destroying each other, but it ended up destroying the Sith too; When Darth Vader destroyed Sidious, he never had an aprentice and the Sith were destroyed because Vader was redeemed. I guess Ill be a Dark Jedi but Im just saying.... ._.'
Whether it's the best way to run things is not for us to decide. Suffice that that's the way thing's work in the Star Wars universe, and we'd like to play within that universe, rather than trying to circumvent the truths of that universe to suit our characters.
I think it's high time you had a new face join the ranks and see if things don't liven up around here...
Name: Yllona Ralik (Pronounced: ee-AHN-ah RAH-lik) Species: Appears human, but... “Your eyes can decieve you. Don't trust them.” Gender: Female Age: 16 Height: 5'8” Hair: Pure white with a violet steak just off the centerline of her scalp. Close-cropped, spiked at the top Eyes: Violet, same shade as hair streak Birthplace: Unknown to her Location: Wanders a lot, is currently on Coruscant Affiliation: None at the moment Hobbies: Surviving, tinkering with electronics Native language: Can hold her own in almost any language capable of being uttered by her vocal chords, thanks to an electronic device of her own invention that's attached to her right ear and linked to her brain allowing her to understand quite quickly any language that's foreign to her.
Other: Yllona's memory is limited to everything that's happened to her after age 8. She remembers nothing before that time, save her name and age. She's survived all these years using her own wits and skills, and wanders the universe. Yllona is Force-sensitive, but she doesn't know that. Her abilities are limited to enhanced instinctive awareness, mediocre influence on the weak-minded, and enhanced physical strength. She knows that she's gifted, but hasn't been taught to control these abilities. She hasn't encountered any Jedi or Dark Jedi as of yet, so she may be swayed to either side... if you can handle her.

Age: 67 (Young adult)
Color: Dark brown, shading to black, with some cinnamon highlights
Appearance: 2.5 m, well muscled, some scars hidden by fur, wears red and gold beads in her dreadlocks, generally looks quite dangerous as she goes about heavily armed
History: Cudearga was born on Kashyyyk and raised to be a hunter and warrior, unusual but not unheard of for a female. She loved her family and was proud of her people's heritage and lifestyle. When she was out hunting alone, she was captured by Trandoshian slavers with Imperial support. The next couple of years, Cudearga never mentions, but most of her scars seem to be from that time. Something apparently pushed her into the berserker rage of a wookie warrior and, at the same time, to the extent that her latent force abilities came to the surface. She decimated the slave quarters, killed more than a few guards, escaped the restraints, and got away.
Once her rage and power was spent, she went to sleep. Kyle Katarn was sent to investigate several explosions in the area by the new Jedi and found the exhausted wookie collapsed against a wall. She was badly injured and near death. Cudearga was taken back to the temple and nursed to health. She received training in the Jedi arts for several years, but never fit in well. She was too much a loner, and she had problems controlling her emotions. Shortly after receiving the title of Knight, she began to range further and further away from the Academy. Eventually, she severed ties completely and began to work as a body guard. She thought she had switched off her (blue) lightsaber for good. However, she was unable to take it when she witnessed some of the same slavers and their new cargo. She has dedicated her life to bringing them down, and despises the Imperial Remnant, since, so many years ago, it was the Empire that allowed the Trandoshians to raid Kashyyyk for slaves.
She tries to avoid other jedi, though she has temple sympathies. She is embarrassed by what she sees as her failure to live a more peaceful life. Cudearga wishes to return, but suffers from self doubt. She isn't sure whether she can work with the others. The thought of her rage resurfacing brings with it the possibility that she could injure those she wishes to protect, so she sees it as for the best that she stays away from the Jedi.
Personality: Cudearga is fiercely protective of the young, weak, or vulnerable. She cannot abide bullying of any kind. She is careless with her own safety, and seems utterly fearless. In battle, she is focused and unhesitant. Her own rage is her greatest enemy. She fears losing control of it, as she did when she first reached into the force. She can be centered and calm, almost lazy in appearance. She's not easily frightened or threatened.
