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 Dark Siders.

Over time, the Dark Side cult fluctuates in size, at times growing to mammoth proportions, and shrinking at other times to a mere handful of apprentices.

Members of The Blackguard are considered part of The Sith Force Tradition for the purposes of qualifying for the Sith Apprentice and Sith Lord Prestige Classes.


Only individuals who possess the Force Sensitivity Feat and live within the Atravis Sector can become a member of The Blackguard, by being accepted as an apprentice by a Wilder who is already a member of this Force Tradition.
