The story of the One Sith begins decades ago, in the Bogden sector, located in the Inner Rim of the galaxy. The planets within the Bodgen region had been ravaged by a terrible war, with hundreds of derelict starships serving as mass graves. A group of desperate grave robbers scavenging for profit banded together and later formed an organization known as the Bando Gora. The Bando Gora evolved into one of the most feared criminal groups in the galaxy, ruling in the Outer Rim Territories, and eventually becoming a Force cult when former Jedi Komari Vosa succumbed to the Dark Side and took control of the Bando Gora, assuming the title of High Priestess. The Bando Gora was finally vanquished after years of terror throughout the galaxy. Its memory, however, wasn't lost. Stories and traces of the fearsome group remained.
Years later, a native of the Bogden sector became aware of the Bando Gora's history and traditions. His name was Darin Byrch, a charismatic Chagrian and one of the most powerful Force users in the galaxy, trained by more than a renowned Master of the Force. Fascinated, Darin decided to bring the Bando Gora back from oblivion, reinventing the group in a Force cult that preached personal strength and freedom by any and all means necessary. Many flocked to his cause, attracted by his natural charisma and leaderships abilities. From feared Force attuned to dastardly pirates and anything in-between, the Bando Gora grew large, gaining more and more members. Through the Hapan Xyre Weltmon, a fervent believer of the cause, the Bando Gora acquired the planet Venaari and control of the entire sector of Esuain, not far from the Core. As the faction progressed, Darin and the many Force users who had joined the Bando Gora convened that the Sith Code was an unequivocal truth to be followed. Months of preparation to turn the Bando Gora into a Sith Cult unfolded, and on Day 337 of Year 20, via a live public address streamed across the Galactic News Service, Darin Byrch assumed the title of Darth Pristus, Dark Lord of the One Sith, revealing his true identity, and the new direction of the Bando Gora and all its followers. The galaxy would forever be shaped by this event.
The newfound Sith philosophy took root and came to dominate the everyday life in the Cult, as well as its culture. The Dark Lord eventually allowed the Bando Gora name to die once and for all, renaming and shaping the organization to its current state: The Order of the One Sith. A new leadership was established, the Dark Triad, formed by the Dread Marshall Morgan Sathel and the High Vizier Xyre Weltomon, with the Dark Lord remaining as the unquestioned leader. The industrial and mining groups controlled by the Order, formerly known as Venaari Corporation and Venaari Extractions, were rebranded to One Sith Industrial Services and One Sith Excavation Services. The transformation was thus complete, allowing the Dark Lord to rule from the Citadel, the headquarters of the Order on the capital planet of Venaari.
To this day, the Order of the One Sith continues to grow and expand its domain.
The Order of the One Sith operates, in large part, as any interstellar government. The members of the ruling body, the Dark Triad, each administer directly one aspect of the organization. The Order maintains a large military, led by the Dread Marshall, known as the One Sith Armada, which is formed by thousands of starfaring vessels, vehicles and planetary aircrafts and ships, in addition to highly trained ground troops and combat pilots. The High Vizier oversees the One Sith Administration Authority: the legislative branch of the Order, governing the territory under the control of the Order. The Authority, as it is commonly referred to, is also in charge of all industrial and infrastructural endeavors carried out by the One Sith. Other than acting as the overall ruler, The Dark Lord himself guides all matters related to the Force and its important implications, pointing the way forward for the entire organization. Ven-Kav, on the planet Venaari, is the current seat of power of the One Sith. Due to the numerous practitioners of the Dark Side present on the world, Venaari is constantly stricken by a colossal thunderstorm that covers nearly the entirety of its sky. It always rains on Venaari; a phenomenon that has fascinated more than scientist and students of the Force.
The ancient Sith Code is at the very center of the Order's culture:
Darth Pristus teaches us:
Such guidance is disseminated throughout the Order on a daily basis, with millions of practitioners living by the Sith Code and the beliefs of the Dark Lord. In the One Sith, every faithful is considered a Sith, even sentients not blessed with a connection to the Force. The Order believes that as long as an individual stays true to the Sith Code and implements it devotedly, then said individual is a true Sith worthy of such a title and honor. Every citizen is trained in their chosen profession and indoctrinated according to the philosophy of the One Sith. Those who are blessed with the Force also receive training from some of the most powerful Sith Masters in the galaxy, including the Dark Lord himself, thus becoming fearsome tools of the Dark Side. Each apprentice undergoes extensive tutelage and is deemed worthy of acquiring titles only after completing trials devised to prove one's worth. Those who successfully demonstrate prowess in battle and understanding of the Sith Code can aspire to become Lords and Ladies of the One Sith, and later down the road, assume the mantle of Darth. In most cases, the Darth name of a Force user is chosen by the Master.
