Name: Sith Assassin

Rank: Sith Acolyte

Tier: High 3

Background: The Sith Acolytes were formed by Valkorian, by repurposing Force Sensitives from the worlds they conquered after the establishment of the Resurgent Sith Empire. These users were mostly native to the Universe of Prophecy, and after the establishment of the Eternal Sith Empire, and remained a separate branch to the Zakuul-native Force Sensitives.

Straying from the front lines, these are single-target Sith. The knowledge that the death or capture of an enemy commander can break morale utterly for the enemy is a vital one, and the assassins know this. As such, you will be expected to deploy stealth and cunning to kill the targets your superiors assign. A constant threat to all those who lower their guards.

Weaknesses: The Sith Acolytes crave power above and beyond all else, and they are willing to compromise allies and mission objectives if it means getting stronger or getting a promotion. They are loyal to the Sith Emperor and the Dark Council, much more the former than the latter, but ever is the nature of the Dark Side that this loyalty is not absolute, and a skilled manipulator could twist their actions and motives under the right circumstances. They hold a deep hatred of the Banite Sith Line, as the two ideologies clash, and are often jealous of their power. They will not work well with other Sith at all, and this can be exploited by a mindful combatant.

The Assassins have little defence against blaster weapons, leaning on Makashi. Thus, a decent amount of blaster fire is likely to rip open their defences and kill them. And while the Force Stealth ability is good for masking one’s Force presence, it does nothing to stop one being detected the old fashioned way, thus a vigilant eye can find them. Lastly, Makashi with a saberstaff can be somewhat flawed, and thus under stress, the assassin’s technique can become sloppy.
