Darth Arrid was a male Dark Lord of the Sith of Human or Sith pureblood descent who served on the Dark Council of the reconstituted Sith Empire sometime before the Galactic War with the Galactic Republic. A child of Dark Councilor Darth Vax, the Sith was relatively young when he succeeded his mother on the Council after her death, assuming the title of Darth Arrid in the process. However, his mother persisted as a Force ghost and manipulated her son behind the scenes, turning him into a mouthpiece for her will, and it took the rest of the Council four years to realize that Arrid was simply Vax's puppet.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia establishes that prior to the end of the Great Galactic War, only Humans and Sith purebloods were permitted to undertake Sith training. Additionally, The Old Republic: Annihilation establishes that Darth Karrid was the first alien to be seated on the Dark Council, which occurs during the Galactic War. As all members of the Dark Council are known at the end of the Cold War, and Darth Vax and Arrid are not one of them, Darth Arrid's reign of four years must have occurred prior to the Galactic War. Thus, Arrid and Vax must be of Human or Sith descent.
