A Sith wayfinder was a type of pyramidal wayfinder created by the Sith to guide the way to Exegol. By the time of the First Order–Resistance war, at least two such artifacts existed. One, belonging to the deceased Sith Lord Darth Vader, was located on Mustafar in the possession of the Alazmec of Winsit. The other, which belonged to the deposed Galactic Emperor Darth Sidious, was located in the wreckage of the second Death Star on the oceanic moon of Kef Bir in the Endor system.
Sith wayfinders were shaped like Sith holocrons and were made from Kathol resin. Like other wayfinders and Luke Skywalker's compass, Sith wayfinders acted as hyperspatial lodestones, allowing safe passage through the Unknown Regions to Exegol, the hidden world of the Sith.
The astronavigation systems of starships could be adapted to accept the binary signals emitted by the wayfinders and interpret them as hyperspace jump coordinates. Kylo Ren adapted his TIE whisper in this way to locate Exegol, and Rey later did the same to Luke Skywalker's X-wing for the same purpose.
