Sith is a familiar word to every Star Wars fan. Aside from the fact that the Sith are the antagonist of the series, there are also some interesting facts about them.
The Sith are able to completely hide their presence and power. Force Stealth is the name of this ability. In Star Wars saga – Episodes I through III, Sheev Palpatine (Darth Sidius) used this ability to hide the fact that he had contact with the Force from all Jedi around him.
Despite being a Dark Jedi and an avid follower of the Sith Apprentice Darth Vader, Kylo Ren is not a Sith. Director J. J. Abrams confirmed himself that Kylo Ren was not a Sith during his interviews.
Through the ability of Force Visions, the Sith can peek into the future. This ability can be considered a blessing or a curse. This ability was used by Anakin when he saw Padme dying, which drove him to join the Sith.
Bleeding kyber crystals create the lightsabers of Siths. Kyber crystals were natural crystals that are chosen by each Jedi to build their lightsaber. The Sith only use kyber crystals that belonged to slain Jedi which gives it the bleeding red color.
The Sith are able to transfer their souls to another body and take control over it. This is called Transfer Essence. Transfer Essence was used many times by the Sith to cheat death over and over again.
Darth Maul is the only known Sith Apprentice to leave the Sith. In the Phantom Menace, it appeared that Darth Maul died but he was able to survive his encounter with Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. This was made possible because Count Dooku took on a new Apprentice thinking that Darth Maul was dead.
The Sith has the ability to choke someone to death without even having to hold him. This ability is called Force Grip and has been used by Darth Vader many times in the series. Force Grip was seen being used by Count Dooku in Revenge of the Sith as he fought against Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The first person to wield a double-bladed lightsaber was not Darth Maul. Exar Kun was the first wielder of this dangerous weapon. No one else aside from them has been known to wield a double-bladed lightsaber.
The Sith are not capable of becoming Force ghosts. This is why they are willing to do whatever it takes to lengthen their life and search for immortality.
The Death Star was molded to look like the superweapons of the Sith. The laser of Death Star uses a giant kyber crystal which makes it very powerful.
Lastly, a Sith Shrine used to stand before where the Jedi Temple on Coruscant was built. This was for the reason that it became the symbol for the Jedi’s victory against the Sith.
