Today we delve into one of the most iconic archetypes in Star Wars lore: the Sith Warrior. If you’ve ever faked a respirator voice, told someone you were their father or tried to choke someone with the power of your mind, chances are you love (or hate) the Sith Warrior. Harkening back to the days of old, when the original trilogy premiered in all its glory, BioWare gave us the Sith Warrior class in Star Wars: The Old Republic as an outlet for Darth Vader fans to live their dreams. Let us take a look into the history and lore behind the hate-mongering Warriors - the angriest Force wielders in a galaxy far, far away.
The upcoming issue of Star Wars Insider Magazine features a preview panel of a new Star Wars: The Old Republic comic titled The Old Republic: The Lost Suns to release in June:
The Old Republic: The Lost Suns. A five-issue series set during the timeframe of the highly-anticipated MMO The Old Republic, The Lost Suns is set approximately 3,600 years before the movies. It stars Republic spy Theron Shan, son of Jedi Master Satele Shan, and packs explosive revelations relating to the events of the game. For this tale the games senior writer Alexander Freed reunites with the Blood of the Empire creative team of Dave Ross (pencils), Mark McKenna (inks), Michael Atiyeh (colors), and Benjamin Carre (covers).
The magazine's cover also advertises original SWTOR fiction with an image of Darth Malgus, which may be the short story Deceived author Paul S. Kemp alluded to back in December. Star Wars Insider hits the newsstands on March 16.
