Karnak Tetsu was a male Sith Offshoot who became the leader of the Sorcerers of Tund, a secretive group of Force users that were based on the planet Tund, in the years following the Great Sith War. Tetsu ruled the Socerers via the means of terror, which helped lead to the Jedi Order declaring the Socerers' beliefs to be an unqualified heresy.
