Dark Jedi was a term for a Force-sensitive individual who followed the dark side of the Force but wasn't a Sith. One such individual, whose rise had been the object of a Jedi prophecy, was the daughter of an ancient duchess of Malastare.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The term "Dark Jedi" was originally coined by author Timothy Zahn for his 1991 Star Wars Legends novel Heir to the Empire as a label for a Jedi that had fallen to the dark side, as the term "Sith" still had yet to be officially defined. He later noted that the term became somewhat "squishy" and for this and other reasons was discouraged, though it was the best he and others had to work with at the time.[2]
