Darth Tenebrous was the Sith Master of Darth Plagueis. Tenebrous was suspected to have designed the Scimitar, the personal starship of the Sith Lord Darth Maul that was officially designed by[1] engineer and starship designer Raith Sienar.[2]

As with a number of other ancient Sith Lords, Tenebrous served as the namesake of one of the Sith trooper legions of the Sith Eternal, a cult led by[3] Plagueis' apprentice, Darth Sidious,[4] in 35 ABY.[5] Specifically, the 26th Legion was dubbed the "Tenebrous Legion," and as Sith history was kept secret from the rest of the galaxy, only Sith Eternal cultists were aware of the name's significance.[3]
