Sith who specialize in stealth, assassination and utilizes saberstaffs in combat
Sith assassin is a title granted to Sith who specialize in stealth, assassination and utilizes saberstaffs in combat. It is also sometimes, but rarely granted to non-Sith individuals who specialize in stealth and assassination.
At some point during the the Jedi Civil War, Sith assassins were established by the Sith Order; as the personal assassins of the Sith Empire, the primary goal of a Sith assassin was to kill or capture Jedi; with was rarely successful; as almost every Sith assassin was a non force-sensitive individual.
After the True Sith Empire revealed itself to the galaxy after remaining hidden for 300 years, Sith assassins became more prominent throughout the Great Galactic War and the Cold War respectively, unlike in the Jedi Civil War; almost every Sith assassin was a force-sensitive individual, particularly Sith Inquisitor, as it was rare for non force-sensitive individuals to become Sith assassins.
Sith assassins specialize in stealth, assassination, dealing high amounts of damage to enemies in melee combat and and are adept at concealing themselves with the Force.
