A Sith Lord was a ruling member among the Sith during the Sith Civil War, which took place during the time period known as the Dark Wars following the downfall of the Sith Empire. In 3951 BBY, the Jedi Knight Meetra Surik defeated the Sith Triumvirate, consisting of Darth Sion, Darth Traya, and Darth Nihilus. After their deaths and the obliteration of the other Sith due to in–fighting in 3950 BBY, the Sith Lord managed to survive the conflict, continuing the Sith teachings and the usage of the "Darth" title. The Sith Lord's actions enabled the organization's traditions to be passed down during the centuries to come.
