Darth Destius Takes the Throne Over the Sith Empire

December 19, 2011

Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide were present at the historical meeting of the Sith on Byss where the Dark Lord Destius proclaimed himself Emperor on the apparent death of the former Emperor Novo in a ship explosion.

Darth Destius Takes the Throne Over the Sith Empire.

Byss: The Sith from all across the galaxy descended upon the Imperial Capital to come before the leaders that were running the Empire in the absence of Emperor Novo. The Dark Lord Destius oversaw the congregation and began the gathering with the issue surrounding Novo and his disappearance. On route to the new imperial facility, in the region of Haruun Kal in the Dustig sector, the Emperor’s personal flagship the Devestator exploded for a reason still unknown. No distress signal nor the beacons from any escape pod have been detecting pointing to the conclusion that the explosion came suddenly and all were lost. Furthermore, Destius and others told that they themselves no longer felt the presence of the former emperor in the force. From all this evidence the only logical conclusion to the mind of Destius and the others was that Novo was dead.

After stating that all should remember what great accomplishments Novo had made to the Empire and galaxy at large, Destius explained that for the stability and continued progress of the Empire that a new leader would have to take the reigns. His speech revolved around the core idea that no one person including the Emperor himself could derail or stop the governance and forward movement of the Empire. For this reason he acting as Novo once dead declared himself Emperor and taking the throne for “the good of the Sith Empire, its territories and people.” On a further note he was also taking the privileged of being Emperor to reorganize the central government as well as some of the leader positions throughout the Empire.

Darth Rowe Takes her Position as the Executor of the Empire.

As each Sith took each turn to kneel before their new Emperor, Destius moved the meeting forward by speaking of naming a new Executor of the Empire, or the right hand man to the Emperor. He wanted to replace the former one, in extended leave. Emperor Destius called Darth Rowe and named her as a new Dark Lord of the Sith and the Executor of the Empire. Taking the position with seriousness the sith then bowed and congratulated her.

The Sith Darth Moi’rai arrived late and was called by the Emperor, apparently upset of his attitude. Destius started with a violent display on Darth Moi’rai and literally burned his hand on the face of the latecomer. This was the ritual elevating a Sith as a Hand of the Emperor. Darth Moi’rai, surprised by honoured by this elevation took his place amongst the Emperor’s Hands, in face of Darth Aran. The other Sith all stepped in line as there was no voice of dissension, though many looked surprised at the promotions.

Darth Umbra from the Trayus Academy also came forward to give the status on Rhelg. She explained that the Fel Empire had been put down with the death of their Emperor at her hands. She also introduced a new breed of Sith troopers created from the projects of the Under-lord to re-emerge the Sith pureblood species. This officer was part of a legion of sith pure bloods known as Legio Piorum. She also stated that the final stages were being made to form this new Sith species and soon individuals would be placed on several Sith worlds. She also stated there were other plans coming from the Academy to help bring an end to the enemies of the Empire and bring order and stability to the Galaxy. The Emperor seemed quite pleased and stated he would take in her request to have the Academy represented of the Sith Council once more, the decision to be made in the future as the council was reorganized as well.

Other changes were the creation of the governorship on Xagobah and the promotion of Sith disciples. Emperor Destius declared the new facility on Xagobah open and named Lord Teivel, the one that oversaw its construction, as the new governor of the planet. Lord Teivel accepted the position. He then used his powers to appoint deputies to state that Lady Nessa would be named as the main diplomat from that world. As for others, two initiates were named Veranni’ka and Nor Gerhadsen. Also Lady Asharlya the disciple to Darth Aran was promoted to he full status of a Sith Lord. She took her new rank graciously and the others looked upon her with approval.Time will no only tell if the stability and prosperity of the Empire continues and what new changes will be made and the response of the Empire to other Galactic governments.

    well well finally Darth Destius has taken the throne, I may have to come and pay my respects to him, After all He has been around longer than any sith around. And I personally have never had a problem with Darth Destius. Although I am surprised Darth Mortus (omega if i misspelled his name wrong) did not have a talk with Destius before the meeting sense he once was co-ruler long long ago. Oh and yes I am still around just at the moment I am a guest of Darmutta the Hutts.

    OOC: Actually, Omega (Dark Lord Mortus) is the oldest and most senior among all the Sith in SWRP, he dates back to mid 2005 when DLoTS began. Rowe, while likely older than Emperor Destius in age etc, is junior to him for time in service of DLoTS and the Sith Empire. Darth Novo also had seniority as he was already a Darth when Destius became an apprentice in DLoTS.

    Media Correction: Also let it be noted, Moi’Rai was a Darth who was made Hand of Emperor Destius. He replaced Rowe as Hand when she was elevated to Dark Lord. The now former Executor was Darth Sinuous (Sliver Bonetto) who has taken a personal leave of absence (with our best wishes).

    The burning of the face is a ritual done when one is elevated to Hand. The emperor burns his hand-print into the forehead of his newest Hand (similar to the mark of Dark Lord of the Sith one wears when they reach such a level). The hand-print heals with little scaring but leaves a permanent force impression.

      (( OOC: And of course, the former Emperor Validus is not dead as far as we know but on his personal quest to find the remnants of his species. He also is senior in years to Destius. ))

    ooc of course as i as saying I am sure mortus and Destius talked ooc on things do to as much and I respect Destius and my ooc friend ship with mortus threw the years starting way back when I was in Dlots which was along time ago. Those two are very wise and usually take into concideration all factors befor acting. I have been around a long time and can relate with illness or rl stuff. As myself had been out with pnumonia for a long time. It is tho good to see that older Sith are still around and things keep going well for everyone.

    We drew Jedi fingers, and he got the most intact one so he got to sit in the big chair this time.

      I figured you’d all just walk around the chamber circle and whoever ran to the seat when the music stopped got the big chair.

    (( Legio Piorum?? Sounds too latin, better was not Legio Rapax))

      (Latin was the Intent, The Legio Piorum is in fact based heavily on Ancient Roman Legions)

    On behalf of the ISM, i wish to extend my congratulations to the new Emperor of Byss. a man, whom I have known my entire life. No one else is more deserving of the throne than this man. We in the ISM, of course, bow our heads and stand salute, our loyalty pledged in undying spirit and bonded blood.

    The woman gets the little girl’s hand and pulls her on her lap. She talks to her slowly, trying to decypher for her the show which excited her so much. “No Lanya, Miss Rowe became Executor, not Empress. She’s not wedding with the Emperor… Look! She didn’t even wear a long lace dress. She doesn’t need the flower headband you’re going to weave, really…”
