Vitiate, the immortal emperor of the ancient Sith Empire

"You mistake me for your own weak flesh; I do not end."
The Sith Emperor[src]

Immortality was the state of a biological being living indefinitely for a seemingly infinite or indeterminate amount of time. This state was the goal of many Sith Lords throughout history, as well as something attained by some Jedi via becoming one with the Force. However, unlike their Jedi counterparts the Sith were far more obsessed with achieving physical immortality because of their fear of death and its interference with the Sith goals of power, control and self-glorification.

  • The Gorach species was thought to have a biological immortal lifespan, living for thousands of years, and only dying through violent means.[1] Similarly, the Diathim and Maelibus races were believed to be immortal.
  • The Imprisoned One attempted to secure his own immortality by use of the Force and nanotechnology but was branded a heretic by the Rakata and imprisoned in a Rakata mind prison before he could do so.
  • Karness Muur, with the help of Sorzus Syn, created the Muur Talisman and upon his death transferred his consciousness into it, allowing his spirit and mind to survive until its final destruction, four thousand years later.[2]
  • The Emperor Vitiate was a Sith Lord who successfully gained near immortality by draining the life force of an entire planet, later attempting to drain all life in the galaxy, which would give him true immortality. After killing the planet Ziost, he focused all his attention on his second life as the "Immortal Emperor," Valkorion of Zakuul. When he was killed in a battle against his son, he left his body and entered The Outlander. When the Outlander was frozen in carbonite, Valkorion spoke to them, claiming that he had finally reached true immortality by shedding his body, and living as a Force entity.
  • Lord Scourge gained immortality as the right hand servant of Emperor Vitiate. However, this promotion came with a heavy price: although feeling excruciating pain at first he would eventually become numb and stop feeling anything at all.[5]
  • Celeste Morne became the wielder of the Muur Talisman to contain its power. While initially placed in stasis, upon awakening she tapped its power and in the process learned to use it to the extent that she remained unaged for over a hundred and forty years.[6] [7]
  • Darth Sion achieved the ability to rise from near-fatal injuries through sheer hatred. However, it left him a broken shell of accumulated injuries and wounds.[8]
  • Darth Drear thought to cheat death by infecting himself with the Sickness and then feasting on the heart of a Jedi, having the midi-chlorians stabilize his condition. This method failed, but only because Drear could not find a victim strong enough in the Force.[9]
  • Darth Zash sought to avoid death by using several artifacts created by Tulak Hord that when used in a unique ritual could allow one's essence to travel to another vessel. She looked for an apprentice who'd be able to find the artifacts and then take over their body. Although successful, her essence was instead transferred into a Dashade's body named Khem Val which she shared with him.[10]
  • Darth Bane attempted to transfer his spirit into another vessel because of the increasingly decrepit condition of his body, which had been physically drained after years of harnessing the power of the dark side of the Force. Although he originally groomed Darth Zannah as his heir, Bane came to believe that she was ultimately unworthy to take up the Dark Lord's mantle. Thus, he sought to preserve his life in order to train a new apprentice. His plot ultimately failed when Zannah confronted and killed her Master in combat.[3]
  • Darth Tenebrous achieved a form of immortality that backfired horribly on him. By converting his consciousness into a new kind of midi-chlorians known as maxi-chlorians, he was seemingly forced to live his final moments for all eternity in an infinite time loop, unless his maxi-chlorians ever died.[11]
  • Darth Simi kept herself alive for thousands of years by sacrificing young Jedi to the dark side of the Force.[20]
