I have always wondered how did Palpatine become sith?
Atleast the movies dont revealed, he is a key character but little is know from his past, could someone tell me how he turn to dark side?

Who was his master?
where is his light saber, or does he even have one?

not all Jedi/Sith need to use their lightsabers, Sidious most likely preferred to use his other powers rather than his skills with a lightsaber... and from what I remember from some old EU, i think it was a Sith named "Darth Bane" (correct me if i'm wrong)... I don't know much about it but *shrugs* that's all I can come up with

I believ Darth Bane was waaaaaaaaaaay back then. Palpatine wasn't even born then.

Darth Bane created the only 2 Sith rule so there wouldn't be another Sith War/sith fighting each other for power.

I've heard something like Darth Rage, but I think that's just supershadow crap.

I was always under the impression that Palpatine did get ahold of a sith holocron and that's how he was 'seduced' by the dark side. :D

If you go here (http://www.starwarsnet.co.uk/askyoda.htm) and scroll down about 1/3 of the way then it will have this:

Who is Darth Imperius?

Darth Imperius' apprentice was Sidious/Palpatine. Betray and murder his master he did.


The site is legit and pretty reliable for SW, so I believe this is true. Also, I remember reading over at theForce.net forums that Darth Imperius WAS Palpatine's master. :D

@ Leemu: Maybe he took one of those Sith homeschooling courses or something....

Hm... sounds legit enough for me... I've always thought he trained himself cuz he found a holocron or something...

Darth Rage was Palpatine's/Sidious's apprentice AFTER Darth Maul died and BEFORE Darth Tyranus (Dooku).
