|Darth Sion - By: Agreath|
|Position||Sith-Lord of the (Sith Order)|
As a Lord of Exar Kun's Sith, Sion fought for his the Dark Lord's Empire until the day he was struck down. Rather than die, though, Sion found that by calling on his pain, anger, and hatred, he could rise from certain death and achieve a form of immortality, at the cost of all-consuming agony. With a body both fractured and decomposing, yet held together by the dark side of the Force, Sion survived the conflict and would live on beyond Kun's campaign. Sion allied himself with the Sith Empire that would arise under the leadership of Darth Revan and Darth Malak. Their Empire as well would fall, and Sion watched as the Sith Academy on Moraband tore itself apart.
Early Life Edit
The Human who would become Darth Sion lived in the time of around 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. Sion which may have been his given name was for a long time susceptible to infirmity and pain much the same as any other individual. Combined together, they were intolerable to him, and he lived a life steeped in hatred. Rather than suffer in silence, Sion chose to embody his pain as his uniqueness, becoming Darth Sion, the Lord of Pain. During the campaign of Exar Kun's Sith Empire, Darth Sion was one of the many Sith to serve Kun in his crusade against the Galactic Republic. Because he desired to die, Sion constantly went into battle against the Jedi but continued to survive the encounters.
Servant of the Sith Empire Edit
Due to his survival in various battles no matter the pain he endured, he became convinced he had achieved a form of immortality. Eventually, Sion was struck down, but he did not die. Instead, the pain within him welled up to agonizing levels, driving Sion to rise once more and strike down his would-be killer with all his anger and hate. Sion found that he could hold his own decomposing body together with the dark side of the Force. Though this process brought him excruciating pain and forced him to continuously concentrate on his rage, Sion considered it a worthy price for immortality. Kun ultimately lost the war, but Sion survived the fall of Kun's Sith Empire.
In time, the Mandalorian Wars fell across the galaxy as the clans of the Mandalorians attacked the Galactic Republic. Sion was shaped in these wars; when they ended and a new Sith Empire was formed by Darth Revan, the new Dark Lord of the Sith, and his apprentice Darth Malak, Sion became a Sith Lord of the Empire. Yet this one was not to last either; Sion was shocked, as Revan, redeemed by the Jedi Council, succumbed to what Sion saw as weakness and betrayed the Sith. Malak was killed by his old master and, with his death, the Empire came apart. When Revan's Empire fell, Sion was at the Sith Academy on Moraband in its final days, he watched as the Sith turned on eachother because of the dark side fueling their greed.
Reign of the Sith Triumvirate Edit
Sion would survive this bout of backstabbing, though. With the disintegration of the Empire, a number of Sith Lords declared themselves to be warlords of their own domains, while other remnants fled for the Unknown Regions. One Sith in the galaxy that was at work with her own plans was Revan's former Jedi Master, Kreia, who had taken the name Darth Traya. In addition to Darth Sion, Darth Traya had found another Sith Lord named Darth Nihilus also known as the Lord of Hunger. Sion, Traya, and Nihilus allied into the secretive Sith Triumvirate, based out of Malachor, their goal was the annihilation of the Jedi Order and restoration of the Sith to power. Traya would become the master of both Sith Lords, with Sion learning much more of pain from her.
to be edit Edit
Eventually, frustrated with her teachings, he and Nihilus stripped her of the Force and cast her out. The two ruling Sith Lords went on to reunite most of the surviving Sith remnants and continue their war on the Jedi, with great success.
With the Jedi all but eliminated, Sion took notice of a new Jedi returning to known space, the Jedi Knight Meetra Surik, who was exiled since the Mandalorian Wars. His attempt to kill her was thwarted by Traya, who managed to get Surik to Peragus II. Sion followed in a captured Republicship, the Harbinger, but Surik and her companions escaped once more. He encountered her again at Korriban, but beginning to feel strange new feelings for her, he let her escape. Traya eventually betrayed Surik and returned to take command of the Sith and Sion. Sion awaited Surik on Malachor V; in their final battle he was struck down again and again, but rose each time. Surik showed Sion the price he paid for immortality, convincing him to let go, and the Sith Lord at last allowed himself to die.
Powers and Abilites Edit
The Force: Sion was at Revan's Sith Academy on Moraband, and later learned of the ways of pain at Trayus Academy on Malachor V. With the dark side, he could hold together his decaying body. Though excruciatingly painful, and requiring endless concentration on the anger within him, it gave him his powers of immortality. When struck down, Sion could call upon his anger, hate, and pain to come alive again. In places strong in the dark side, like Moraband and Malachor V, the Force flowing through Sion made him nigh-undefeatable. Jedi Master Lonna Vash considered him "a perversion of the dark side."
Sion needed hatred to hold onto his power; he grew threatened when his feelings for Surik seemed to diminish this and erode his ability to hold onto life. Ultimately, she would convince him to give up his hatred and, in doing so, submit to death. The Sith Lord was glad when he could finally lay down his life.
Sion had a number of Force powers at his disposal: Telekinesis ranging from Force Whirlwind to Force Wound,Force Slow, Force rage, Force Immunity, and Force drain. He was immune the effects of fear-based Force attacks.
