Descendants of the original [[Sith]] species, the red-skinned Sith purebloods inherit a legacy long intertwined with the dark side. The ancient Sith were warlike, competitive, and ambitious, and they performed arcane rituals to create powerful force artifacts. For those Sith in whom the old blood still flows strongly enough to be seen, there exists a strong current of innate darkness, making the rate of force sensitivity among purebloods nearly one hundred percent. Three thousand years ago, Dark [[Jedi]], fleeing [[Republic]] space after [[the second great schism]], discovered the Sith species on [[Korriban]]. They were surprised to find that the comparatively primitive species displayed knowledge of the dark side that the Jedi themselves had never encountered. The dark Jedi resolved to subjugate the Sith and wrest their knowledge from them. Though the Sith struck back in an attempt to protect their dark side secrets, they were ultimately outmatched by the superior training and technology of the invaders. The Sith were enslaved by their dark Jedi overlords. Over hundreds of generations, the two groups intermingled. The dark Jedi found that Sith society and culture suited their philosophy well. Before long, the elite ruling class of [[Korriban]] consisted almost entirely of hybridized offspring of the dark Jedi and the high priests of the Sith. This hybridization resulted in an ambitious, ruthless race with a natural strength in the force. Genetically speaking, the term "pureblood" is a misnomer, as all modern sith are hybrids, a product of the unions between the ancient dark Jedi and the original sith race. However, the term is useful in distinguishing those who carry enough of the blood of the ancient race to still be evident in their features.
