Do not fear their feeble attack, my faithful. NOTHING WILL STOP THE RETURN OF THE SITH!!!
~ Darth Sidious to his followers.

The Sith Eternal is the final antagonistic faction of the Skywalker Saga, serving as the main antagonistic faction of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. It is the unseen overarching antagonistic faction of both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, and the main antagonistic faction of The Rise of Skywalker.

They are a Sith cult who were founded and led by a revived Emperor Sheev Palpatine after the Galactic Empire was defeated at the Battle of Endor and the second Death Star was destroyed. They used the First Order as a distraction while they built up a massive fleet of Xyston-class Star Destroyers outfitted with axial superlasers. This Sith Eternal fleet was called the Final Order and it was built to allow the Sith to once again conquer the galaxy and establish a New Empire to reign supreme.


Following the defeat of the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Endor, which saw the destruction of the second Death Star, the resurrected Darth Sidious retreated into the Unknown Regions with a collection of his followers to rebuild his fleet. From the shadows he formed the First Order to antagonize the New Republic and distract from his real plans, to build up an extremely large fleet of Xyston-class Star Destroyers, the Final Order, and use them to swoop in and conquer the galaxy once more, in an attempt to restore the Sith Empire.

Sidious was eventually defeated by his secret granddaughter Rey and suffered his final death when she directed her grandfather's Force lightning back upon him. After Sidious died, the remaining Sith Eternal both on the surface of Exegol and the Final Order were decimated. A number of uprisings took place across the galaxy, causing the rapid collapse of the First Order. The death of Darth Sidious and the destrution of the Sith Eternal had prevented both the rebirth of the Sith Order and the establishment of the New Empire.

  • Unlike in the old Galactic Empire, where the Sith leadership was a secret to the public, the Sith Eternal that would form the new Sith Empire would have their Sith leadership openly seen by everyone.
  • The fact that the Final Order is equipped with starships able to destroy entire planets is explained by the retentless advancement of technology like in the real life.
