STAR WARS: Abandoned Heroes
The Cryptic Lord
Darth Jadus is reclusive and enigmatic, even among the Sith. He is cold, seething, and brilliant, and of all the members of the Dark Council is the least prone to rage, to laugh, to show any sign of the passions that fuel the dark side. Whatever passion Jadus has, whatever fuels him, only he knows. His humanity has long since been purged.
Since his ascension to the council, Jadus has remained removed from the power struggles of his peers, instead concentrating his influence on Imperial Intelligence. Although other Sith control their own spy networks, it is Jadus who oversees the galaxy’s largest espionage organization (albeit primarily through advisors and intermediaries). Jadus’s servants are never Sith; instead, his favored agents are ordinary citizens uplifted to greatness, terrified of their lord but possessed of an almost religious zealotry.
There can be no doubt that Jadus is playing a long game, and the other Dark Lords observe him warily. Until he makes a move, however, there’s little to be done.
A prominent yet enigmatic figure among the Sith, Darth Jadus was known for showing more self-restraint than his fellow Lords, rarely succumbing to the passions and emotions that powered the dark side of the Force. His personal motives and passions were unclear to all; he showed very little interest in concerning himself with the squabbles and power struggles so common among his people, instead focusing his influence on the Imperial Intelligence network. His enigmatic nature, coupled with his tendency to contract outsiders who had earned their own reputations for intelligence missions rather than other Sith, fostered a sense of unease and distrust among his peers.
