In the Star Wars mythos, the Jedi Order faces the threat of their ideological and moral counterparts, the Sith Order. Unlike the Jedi Master, the Sith Lords believe that peace is an illusion. A firm believer in the cycle of destruction and rebirth, the Sith Order uses the dark side of the Force. By tapping into their deepest instincts, the Sith Lords are always lusting for power and absolute authority.
The Sith Order is the major threat to the peace and harmony desired by the Jedi Order in the galaxy. As a Sith Lord grows in power, the desire for power and control grows manifolds. In the Star Wars lore, some of the well known Sith Lords are Darth Sidious, Darth Maul, Darth Plageuis, and Darth Vader. As the users of the dark side of the Force, Sith Lords can use Force Lightning, along with most powers used by Jedi Masters.
