|~ Vitiate to the Hero of Tython|
Vitiate was the Emperor of the Sith for over a millennium during the Old Republic era, reconstructing it after the Great Hyperspace War.
Born to farmers on the planet Medriass in 5113 BBY, Tenebrae was always unnatural, having eyes as black as space and never displaying emotion. At the mere age of six, Tenebrae developed Force powers and learned that his true father was the ruler of Medriass, Sith Lord Dramath. By the time he was ten, Tenebrae faced and killed his father, declaring himself ruler of the planet in the next three years and renaming it Nathema. By then, in 5100 BBY, he encountered Dark Lord of the Sith Marka Ragnos and was given the Sith title of Vitiate.
Over a century later, in the wake of the Great Hyperspace War, Vitiate called 8,000 Sith Lords to Nathema with the promise of revealing Dark Side power greater than anyone could imagine. However, the ritual killed every Sith Lord—and every lifeform on the planet—and transformed Vitiate into a supremely powerful Dark Side entity. Leading the surviving Sith in a nineteen years odyssey to the Unknown Regions, he established a new Sith Empire on Dromund Kaas, and declared himself the Sith Emperor.
Simultaneously, Vitiate traveled to Wild Space in search of the supposedly unstoppable Eternal Fleet. Finding the world of Zakuul, Vitiate hid among them as a man known as Valkorion. Over an unknown period of time, he united the nomadic tribes into one Eternal Empire utterly devoted to him. While there, he would also have a relation with a Zakuulan named Senya Tirall and have three children: Arcann, Vaylin and Thexan.

Weaknesses: Vitiate fears death and will go to any length to prevent it, and lacks particular skill with a lightsaber compared to other duelists of his caliber due to preferring the use of his Force powers in combat
- Duplicates: Vitiate is able to use Sith Magic to generate physical duplicates of himself to assist him in combat, allowing him to attack his foes from multiple directions at once and confuse his foes by forcing them to deduce which among them is the real Vitiate.
- Force Lightning: An offensive Force technique that uses Force energy to produce electricity with one or two hands that stream outwards from the fingertips, its speed is usually great enough to catch an opponent off-guard even when prepared, and can be used either in bursts, or simply torrent out in a gush of agony on its victim.
- Force Barrier: Both an offensive and defensive Force power that creates a barrier or wall of Force energy around the intended target, be itself, friend, or foe. Depending on the strength of the individual, the barrier could only withstand a few attacks before collapsing.
- Force Drain: Vitiate drains the life from his opponents and adds it to his own. The scale at which he can use the ability varies from just drawing life energy from those surrounding him to a planet-wide draining of the Force (The latter requiring ten days of prep and the assistance of 8,000 other Sith Lords prior to the original ritual on Nathema).
- Force Illusion: The user projects an image into the minds of beings within range, of anything from a pillar of fire to a horde of snarling monsters to a fleet of warships, depending on the range. The user could "see" the illusion as well, though it would be only partially there, semi-transparent like a hologram. Vitiate's most common application of the skill was conjuring doppelgangers of himself to further confuse those he would face in combat.
- Sever Force: Vitiate attacks a Force User's connection to the Force and can deaden or even outright eliminate his opponent's connection in the process. Vitiate used this power to sever his father's connection to the force.
- Telekinesis: Vitiate can use this through the Force to put his mind literally over matter, capable of blasting opponents, shielding himself or disarming people, its limits are only those of the creativity that Force User has.
- Telepathy: Can easily manipulate others mentally with the Force to trick, deceive, maim or even kill outright. Can also use this power externally or internally when it comes to illusion creation, manifestation, and manipulation.
- Sith Sorcery: Tenebrae is a legendary practitioner of the ancient magicks of the Sith, and could use them for a great variety of purposes: from creating Dark Creatures out of nothing but pure Dark Side energy, to annihilate all life in a planetary level (and potentially, galactic) via a complex Sith Ritual called "Nathemic Ritual".
