Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith 1: Masters and Students of the Force is the first issue in the Tales of the Jedi: Dark Lords of the Sith series of comics. It was published by Dark Horse Comics on October 1, 1994.
For a thousand generations, young Jedi Knights have dedicated their lives to preserving harmony and justice throughout the Galactic Republic. Four millennia before the birth of Luke Skywalker, the brothers Ulic and Cay Qel-Droma were two who took up the Jedi way. Together with the Twi'lek Tott Doneeta, they apprenticed to the wise Jedi Master Arca Jeth of Arkania.
Another student of the Force was Nomi Sunrider, who chose to become a Jedi Knight after the tragic death of her husband Andur. Nomi and her daughter Vima were taught by the great beast-Jedi Master Thon of Ambria.
These renowned Jedi, and others equally as valiant, became enmeshed in dramatic and harrowing events surrounding the reappearance of the dark teachings of the Sith, an ancient race of magicians long thought extinct.
Four hundred years before Arca and Thon, a Dark Jedi named Freedon Nadd introduced the suppressed Sith teachings to the planet Onderon. Nadd's dark-side powers took hold on the isolated world, and flourished unchecked until Master Arca brought together a band of Jedi to root them out.
Now Freedon Nadd's living spirit has managed to confound the great old Jedi. On Onderon, under Arca's very nose, Nadd has instructed two young aristocrats, Satal and Aleema Keto, heirs to the throne of the Empress Teta system. Satal and Aleema have returned to their homeworld as powerful initiates of the Sith way.
Elsewhere, other events are unfolding that will affect the future of the Galaxy: On the planet Dantooine, a proud Jedi named Exar Kun steals his masters Holocron, curious to learn more about the legendary fallen Jedi Knights who were known as the Dark Lords of the Sith.
In this issue, Naga Sadow is described as a pure-blooded Sith rebelling against the descendants of the human Exiles who conquered the Sith. In Golden Age of the Sith, this was reversed: Sadow was established as a Sith/human hybrid, while his primary rival, Ludo Kressh, was of pure Sith blood.
