Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Jedi Academy Training Manual

The Blackguard is a Dark Side cult that seeks to increase its knowledge and power by searching for secrets held by Force Traditions all over the galaxy.


Shortly before the Battle of Ruusan, a dark apprentice of Kaan named Vulta Daanat comes to the belief that The Force not only serves as a source of personal power but also a means to understand the universe. Kaan disagrees, intent on exterminating The Jedi and conquering The Old Republic. Their disagreement turns physical, and the subsequent Lightsaber duel leaves Daanat badly injured, and Kaan leaves him for dead.

Daanat nurses his wounds and escapes from the Brotherhood of Darkness. After a time, he searches the galaxy, following rumors and leads to various Force-related artifacts. He learns many secrets about The Dark Side, settles within the Southern Jedi Ruins on Mustafar, and takes on several apprentices to pass his knowledge to a new generation of darksiders.

Over time, the cult fluctuates in size, at times growing to mammoth proportions, and shrinking at other times to a mere handful of apprentices. Despite its roots as a Dark Side cult, the modern Blackguard has taken philosophical lessons from other Force Traditions, and seeks to bring balance to their inner light and dark, similar to the Je'daii of old.

Members of The Blackguard Force Tradition can select Talents from the Blackguard Wilder Talent Tree.

Membership[edit | edit source]

Prior to the leadership of San'sii the Kursk, only individuals who possess the Force Sensitivity Feat can become a member of The Blackguard by being recruited into the cult as a Minion. Under San'sii the Kursk the group recruits non-Force-sensitive people into the cult's ranks to act as soldiers.
