Darkness is life, death, and all encompassing.
As the new initiates of the Shadow drew closer to the Lord of the Order, they saw fire in the flick of his eyes. Yet his eyes we dark as coals. He spoke in a voice that was infused with the force unbridled, giving it the weight of the darkest of depths. Good, gather around me he called, I have knowledge to share with each of you, it involves the founding of our order, as well as it’s purpose.
In the darkness of time we have our beginning as an Order, we formed before the Empire and we shall persist long after the Empire has withered away, we are eternal. Our first Lord Kolar traveled beside Ajunta Pall as a Jedi of the Republic. He dabbled in darkness, and his followers, like minded brothers and sisters among the jedi order, together came to master the secrets of what would eventually become sith sorcery, they were betrayed and cast out by the ranks of the Jedi for their experimentation, and they then learned to channel their rage and consume it as fuel, which powered their transformation, basking in their newfound power they grew into something more . These followers of Kolar became the basis of what would eventually evolve into the sith. Never be satisfied with what you have, strive ever forward.
When Ajunta Pall became the First Lord of the Sith he bestowed Lord Kolar the gift of this very order, as well as some of the unmatched lightsaber forms known only to Ajunta Pall himself. Our role in the Empire was to maintain it on the dark path and seek out all others, the betrayers, the weak, the unwanted. We are the core, the pillar on which our society will remain pure. We do not follow the Empire, no!... we are above it. We are the unaccountable source of purity and power from which it is constantly reborn. Our loyalty is to purity and power and through that loyalty we find our true brothers and sisters in darkness. We know it cannot be achieved alone, but only on the backs of our vanquished.
From this moment fourth you are beyond the empire, beyond the Sith, you have found the true power. You are to use that power to further the goal of purity. Anyone you kill was too weak, anyone you enslave too meek, anyone you destroy was not strong enough. All is to be used, all is to be subjected, all is to be pure. You are now of the Shadow!
He issued a command encouraging his apprentices to stand and attack simultaneously. Of the thirty, all but five did so. Lord Kolar singled them out one by one, slowly felling them, utilizing precise, and extremely brutal blows. He eviscerated his followers piece by piece. As he did so he retained their life essence and absorbed it into his own. He then looked to the remaining five, and peered into their minds, then to their hearts, now completely open to him as if a book on a shelve. He saw not fear, but calculation in their depths. They knew they were not ready for this test, and as such passed. He told them each to go forth back to their Master and to never speak of this.
