So yes another Star Wars respect thread I have made. This however will be a tad different, as first it will be looking into your typical Dark Jedi and then move into the Dark Jedi which are more powerful to give a real understanding of where they are at.

So then...let's get to it!

Better viewed in Blog format.

========

Dark Jedi(Standard/Independent)

Greedy and Selfish, yet powerful and deadly.
Greedy and Selfish, yet powerful and deadly.

Above is your typical Dark Jedi, one who is strayed from the path of the Jedi Order or is just someone who was found to be Force Sensitive and has been trained by others in the utilization of the Dark Side...so let's explore this.

=======

Those Force Users who claim to be Dark Jedi, are for the most part, former members of the Jedi Order. However some of those classified might have been individuals who never have been trained by the Jedi and actually began their instruction under another Dark Jedi. In any case, Dark Jedi pose a significant threat to the freedom of the galaxy by opposing those who have sworn to protect it.

- Taken from Threats of the Galaxy- Dark Jedi

Whether they be former Jedi or ones trained under other Dark Jedi. They are a significant threat to the galaxy, this galaxy mind you having powerful government organizations, police agencies, Jedi and so on.

Facing a Dark Jedi in battle is a risky venture at best, considering the resources at the individual's disposal. The darkside of the Force combined with anger or passion can cause even skilled Jedi to balk momentarily. Whether by himself or with supporters, a Dark Jedi enters combat with little hesitation and tends to focus his energy on Force using heroes who oppose him before turning on any others, using his lightsaber and any offensive Force powers to quickly end the fight.

- Taken from Threats of the Galaxy- Dark Jedi

Dark Jedi can cause even skilled Jedi to balk, they don't hesitate and use their lightsaber and Force powers to end fights quickly.

No Caption Provided

They specialize in lightsaber usage and proficent in saber combat and using simple weapons. Adept at fighting unarmed. Can make two quick strikes in a single attack(Rapid Strike), have honed their Force ability(Skill Focus). They can slam one or more beings into the ground using The Force(Force Slam), they can enhance their combat abilities(Battle Strike/Dark Rage).

Although Dark Jedi may live alone, some make astonishing connections, serving under masters of the Darkside such as a Dark Jedi Master or Sith Lord, while others go in the direction of recruiting non-sensitive individuals such as mercenaries or pirates. Others might try to pass off as a true Jedi associating themselves with diplomats and politicians in governments to reach their goals.

- Taken from Threats of the Galaxy- Dark Jedi

Can make some pretty good connections, forming a group, serving under a Master or even worming themselves into a planetary government.

Knowing Affect Mind(Mind Trick), Empathy, Fear, Telepathy, Sense.

Comic Scans

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

1st scan shows the Dark Jedi Lycan having taken out a shuttle that was bringing him back for his trial, he escaped with only a head injury which caused him to lose his memory.

2nd scan shows him dismantling a droid with TK.

3rd scan is pretty impressive, he killed an entire casino room of various aliens by bursting an artery to the brain killing them instantly, he didn't even seem to move at all.

4th is another pretty good scan, he's able to bring up a Force Barrier to protect him(at least momentarily) from falling rubble from a cave explosion.

Months later, Kibh Jeen returns. Strong in the dark side, he plans to subject the entire system and lash out at the Jedi Council. Piloting the shuttle into space, he searches for minions who would make useful tools. Pirates in the asteroid belt suit his purposes admirably. In an almost thoughtless display of power, he dominates their minds, and through them attracts others to his service.

- Taken from Living Force Campaign Guide

So Kibh Jeen who was just a Jedi Padawan, falls to the dark side where he plans to subject an entire system, hardly even thinking, he dominates the minds of all the Pirates in an asteroid belt.

After his servants sabotage a local power plant, he unleashes his anger on the floating cities of Genarius. Lighting arcs through the clouds, destroying hundreds of homes as his followers scream through the streets, blasters white-hot. Thousands die.

- Taken from Living Force Campaign Guide

Then later Kibh arcs Lighting from the sky and destroys hundreds of homes. Mind you folks, this is just a fallen Dark Jedi and he's throwing around freaking lighting of all things from the sky.

Dark Force Adept

No Caption Provided

By tapping into his inner rage, the Force Adept turns his weapon into an extension of his body, using his might and personal Charisma to get what he wants. Although this Force Adept lacks a lightsaber, he's still a dangerous individual in melee combat, calling upon the dark side to bolster his natural abilities and become a whirling dealer of death.

- Taken from Threats to the Galaxy

Force Adepts bolster their abilities with the dark side and though lacking a lightsaber, are still dangerous in melee combat.

No Caption Provided

Force Adepts are proficent in advanced and simple melee weapons, pistols and rifles, specializing in advanced melee weaponry. They know Battle Strike(Bolstering their abilities) and TK(Move Object/Force Slam).

Primitive dark side adepts are savage Force users who exploit the Force for their own wicked ends. Such characters could use their power to take over their tribe and exert their will through terrifying methods, ruling through fear and destruction. Others might support powerful warlords, using their dark magic to augment and enhance their master's abilities.

A dark side adept could emerge as a significant threat, using his Force powers to bend others to his will and spread wickedness throughout the land.

- Threats to the Galaxy

They can use their dark powers to take over entire tribes, or support and augment the abilities of warlords, being a significant threat and bending others to their will.

No Caption Provided

Knowing Dark Rage and Mind Trick.

In the case of the latter though, the dark side adept seeks revenge, turning his fear into a powerful weapon and dominating the minds of powerful predators and queer creatures to serve as his soldiers.

- Taken from Threats to the Galaxy

They can dominate the minds of powerful predators to serve them.

A Dark Side devotee begins his training in The Force by taking what he wants from others and dominating the world around him.

- Taken from Dark Side Sourcebook

They begin their training by just...dominating the world they are on. Usually a primitive world given that is where the majority Force Adepts come from, which as noted they can take over entire tribes. Which if you look at it face value, might not seem like much. But when looking at it, it's one person that dominated a group of people large enough to sustain some form of community.

Dark Side Talisman= A Dark devotee gains the ability to imbue a small item of personal significance with the dark side of the Force. It takes one full day to imbue the item.

- Taken from Dark Side Sourcebook

They can imbue a small item of importance with the dark side, though it takes them a full day.

Force Weapon= A Dark devotee can imbue a nonpowered melee weapon such as a club, knife or quarterstaff with the Force.

- Taken from Dark Side Sourcebook

They can also imbue weapons with The Force. Force imbue weapons can stand up to things such as lightsabers for a period of time and increase the damage the weapon would normally do.

=====

As seen, even your Independent Dark Jedi can be quite a powerful one.

But now we get into Palpatine's Dark Jedi, who are a cut above the standard ones and are quite powerful. So let's explore...

=====

Galactic Empire Dark Jedi

Enforcers and Loyal to Emperor Palpatine
Enforcers and Loyal to Emperor Palpatine

Above are your Dark Jedi of the Galactic Empire, far better trained than independent ones, having a host of resources/knowledge at their disposal, making them powerful warriors.

A Dark Side Adept in Palpatine's Empire knows Affect Mind, Alchemy, Drain Energy, Force Grip/Pull, Healing, TK, proficent in blaster pistols, primitive/simple weapons. Sith Sorcery and having a dark side talisman.

Picture of Imperial Sentinel

No Caption Provided

These mute titans are the subject of endless talk among those at court; their origin unknown. Some believe the Sentinels are immense droids or cyborgs. Still others whisper the Dark Side Adepts are somehow behind the aberrations. The Sentinels are clones, mutated by the Dark Adepts as part of their training, the Adepts attempt to form a mental link with them, if successful, the Sentinels end up as automatons: living statues dependent on the will of the Adepts.

- Taken from Dark Empire Sourcebook

As part of their training, the Dark Adepts create Imperial Sentinels, forming a mind link with them.

The captured Padawans and survivors from the Jedi Service Corps are less gifted in the Force, but they will serve me nonetheless as Dark Side Adepts. Until I have use for them, they shall remain on Byss, where their connection to the Force will intensify the planet's growing nexus of dark side potency.

-- Book Of Sith: Secrets From The Dark Side

(Added by Zapan87) Captured Jedi Padawans from the Service Corps use their connection to the Force to intensify the dark side nexus on Byss.

The alchemy developed by Sorzus Syn is being perfected on Byss, where my Dark Side Adepts join their potent skills to warp life on a broad scale. My monstrous chrysalides, with their magnificent metal-piercing fangs, guard the ramparts of my citadel. My mute Imperial sentinels stand by my throne, their annihilated minds and enslaved wills clear evidence the dark side can manipulate clones for any imaginative purpose.

-- Book Of Sith: Secrets From The Dark Side

(Added by Zapan87) The Dark Side Adepts join their skill to warp life, creating chrysalides and Imperial Sentinels.

Training his most select servants in the ways of corruption, he made them into Dark Side Adepts, and with them, pushed the frontiers of the “science of darkness.” They rediscovered forgotten and long taboo applications of the Force, chief among them the draining of life itself from the populace.

-- Dark Empire Sourcebook

(Added by Zapan87) They rediscover forgotten and taboo Force powers, including Force Drain.

Still other wisper the Dark Side Adepts are somehow behind these aberrations. Little do these whisperers realize how close to the truth they may be. The Sentinels are clones, mutated by the Dark Side Adepts as part of their training. During the growth cycle, odd chemicals that suppress the growth of higher brain functions are introduced. Simultaneously, the Adepts attempt to form a mental link to them. If the process is successful, The Sentinels end up automatons: living statues dependent on the will of the Adepts themselves for purpose or movement. If the process is unsuccessful, the living monstrosities are disposed of. For the duration of the wretched being's existence, it is the slave of the Dark Side Adept, knowing no other will than the Adept's.

-- Dark Empire Sourcebook

(Added by Zapan87) The Dark Adepts mutated Sentinels as part of their training, forming a mental link and they are a slave to the Adept.

What better lure for multitudes than Byss’s siren call of beauty and peace? Once there, their wills are destroyed by the Emperor and his Adepts, and replaced with an illusion of tranquility as they blissfully surrender their life energy to sustain the Emperor.

-- Dark Empire Sourcebook

(Added by Zapan87) Controlling the minds of the Byss population with the Emperor to give an illusion of tranquility as their life energy is drained.

Sith Sorcery: You have the ability to channel the spirits of deceased Sith lords, using their power to supplement your own-but at the risk of becoming their puppet.

-- The Dark Side Sourcebook

Can channel the spirits of deceased Sith Lords to augment their own power.( Credit to Zapan87)

Force storm: A tornado of energy created by great disturbances in the Force. Dark Side Adepts demonstrated limited control over the creation of these storms. Emperor Palpatine claimed the ability to create and control Force storms at will. Light-side practitioners could also band together and create powerful Force storms.

-- The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia

Could create Force Storms with limited control, this is rather impressive given that the Force Storm is one of the most powerful abilities in lore and they can be hard to control, also the fact it takes Light side practitioners to band together to create them, yet Palpatine's Adepts could do so without. (Credit to Zapan87)

Using their "science of darkness", they learned to feed on the life energy of others, accumulating Force energy in their own bodies. And they learned to redirect this accumulated power in many ways - either as a weapon or in the manipulation of molecular structures.

Legend says that Adepts of the Dark Side have even succeeded in spawning living monstrosities - beasts and intelligent entities, some unspeakably ugly, some full of malevolent charm and symmetry, all utterly permeated by the power of the Dark Side.

-Dark Empire endnotes

Just some of the things they can do. (Credit to Azronger)

In the years prior to the Battle of Yavin, Byss was known as the Emperor's Private retreat. Here he began quietly training Dark Side Adepts, initiating men of great intelligence who had committed their lives to his service. None were permitted to ascend to his level of knowledge and proficiency, but the Adpets nonetheless became powerful Dark Side magicians in their own right.

-Dark Empire endnotes

Trained by Sidious, becoming powerful Dark Side Users. (Credit to Azronger)

Cuis' Dark Jedi Clones

No Caption Provided

For a dead man Sa Cuis had a fine lightsaber technique. Lord Vader swung his blade and two beams of energy rasped off eachother. Cuis- or one of his clones anyway- circled and Vader matched him, keeping a constant distance between them.

- Taken from Two-Edged Sword

The Cuis clones are noted as having a fine lightsaber technique just as the original Sa Cuis.

Vader was satisfied. The clones had retained all the speed and sharp reflexes of the unfortaunate Emperor's Hand whose genome was now theirs.

- Taken from Two-Edged-Sword

They all retained the speed and reflexes of Sa Cuis.

Vader went back to the dais to watch the clones continue their lightsaber training. They ran through parry and riposte, redoublement and remise, red blades shimmering. Their instructor was yet another of Palpatine's many Hands, an assassin called Sheyvan, who had a taste for vibroblades as well as the conventional lightsaber.

- Taken from Two-Edged-Sword

Trained by another of Palpatine's Hands.

One Lekauf clone, the name "NELE" stenciled on his chest place, brought his staff round in a low arc to upend his opponent. But as soon as the man fell flat on his back, he sprang to his feet in one move and threw the Lekauf clone almost the full width of the training hall with a massive Force Push. The other 5 Cuis Clones laid aside their staffs and sent their opponents' weapons spinning from their hands with a single gesture.

All the Lekauf clones were knocked flat on their backs and pinned down by an invisible hand.

- Taken from Two-Edged Sword

They can send clone Stormtroopers(Lekauf clones) flying across halls and can casually disarm them of their weapons with a single gesture, then pin them down on the floor using The Force.

Vader stood back. What they needed was not so much his fighting skills as his ability to prevent the Dark Jedi from using The Force. They almost certainly had a danger sense acute to his.

- Taken from Two-Edged-Sword

Acute Danger Sense similar to Vader's.

But three shafts of energy continued to glow, and he could see three of Cuis' clones enveloped in Force shields of their own, managing to hold off the flamethrower assault.

- Taken from Two-Edged-Sword

Force shields strong enough to defend against flamethrowers.

Nele fired another burst of burning gas of the Dark Jedi. Then one of Cuis' Clones made a massive effort and sent the ball of flame at Vader.

- Taken from Two-Edged-Sword

Redirecting a ball of fire at Vader.

Emperor's Hand- An assassin recruited, trained and employed by Emperor Palpatine himself. They were the ones tasked with infiltrating the best-armed fortresses or deep in the shadows of galactic society to find their quarry.

- Taken from Complete Encyclopedia

To give an idea on what an Emperor's Hand is capable of, trained assassins and employed by Palpatine.

That second was enough. The Dark Jedi took his lightsaber hilt in both hands and jerked his arms apart, releasing two beams, a red one in his left hand and a white one in the other. Vader had a brief thought that it was a marvelous piece of theatrics until the man came at him whirling the sabers slowly like a juggler preparing to perform with clubs. And the white blade whisked so close to his helmet that he had his own lightsaber raised and blocking it before he even had time to think.

"Cuis, Lord Vader," said the man. "Nothing personal, believe me."

Vader matched him step for step in the standoff as they circled each other. Nothing personal. Perhaps Cuis thought that an ice-cold act would intimidate him. But it was anger and all the other brutal emotions that would win the fight.

Vader lunged.

My Master wants me dead.

He brought his saber down hard in a straight arc and Cuis blocked it with both of his, rasping them straight down its length as if sharpening a metal blade. Vader withdrew and sliced upward, then feinted to the left, wrong-footing the Jedi, who leapt back against the trunk of one of the trees. Vader made a double lunge on his right leg, dipping under the swirling twin beams.

He needed to force Cuis into a confined space to deny him the advantage of two lightsabers. There had once been a boy called Anakin who could have done that with sheer technique, but he was forgotten, and the transformed man that was Vader opted for sheer power and began a fast, furious slashing assault, slicing through a tree trunk as Cuis dodged behind it.

My Master forced me to live and now he wants me dead. The trunk creaked and toppled and Cuis deflected the weight of branches with the Force. It bought Vader a second. He used it to send Cuis's white beam spinning into the fountain, clattering down the wet stones. As Cuis's remaining lightsaber flew from his left to his right hand, Vader intercepted it, jerking it high into the air and using the Force to throw it to the other side of the courtyard, out of reach.

Cuis leapt high and saved his legs form a savage low sweep, but his opponent had him backed up almost into the angle of the walls. Vader couldn't match Cuis's agility, so instead he reached out with his left hand: the Force seized Cuis's throat.

- Taken from In His Image

Here is Sa Cuis the original fighting Vader to try and kill him as per Palpatine's order, he shows the ability in Jar'Kari lightsaber combat, is agile and quick and able to deflect tree branches as a tree fell.

=======

Well there you have it folks! The Dark Jedi of Star Wars.

Now there are guys like the GE's Imperial Inquisitors, however on those I'm leaving out as I feel they would warrant there own thread. Even still, this would encompass what they go through too before they become actual Inquisitors, this is just merely going over the regular Dark Jedi that one might find in the galaxy.

While they aren't incredibly powerful, even so they aren't to be taken lightly.

NOTE: This isn't EVERYTHING about a Dark Jedi or even the Dark Jedi of the GE. There's a lot more material, but I really wasn't wanting to go through it all.

@wolfrazer: Nice! :P When you have time, do add onto it with all the other stuff. Just, you know, here and there.

Of the estimated 15% that are considered for application only less than 2 percent ever make it to final training. That is why the majority of Dark Jedi are military personnel and hardly any are picked out of the general population.

- Taken from Galaxy Guide 14: Dark Side

@wolfrazer: I see that. What is impressive however, is that, according to that quote, mutating living beings is something only masters of Alchemy can do, and is far more difficult than creating amulets.

Especially considering that those adepts not only studied, but perfected Sorzus Syn's alchemy (this being the same Sith who created Muur and Dreypa's amulets and was one of Palpatine's most powerful predecessors), and given that they could mutate Imperial Sentinels as part of their training, implying they did that before their prime, chances are they would be able to create artifacts just as potent as those Syn made.
